AquAdvantage Salmon Should be Promoted
The market of genetically modified foods started in 1994, when Calgene developed its unsuccessful delayed-ripening tomato (Winerip). Since then, GMO food becomes an important element of today’s food industry. However, it was not until 2015 that the United States Food and Drug Administration( FDA) approved Aquadvantage salmon, which was developed by the AquaBounty Technologies, to be consumed by human and appears on market (“Briefing Packet”). It is the first type of genetically modified animal that approved by FDA. This salmon innovation will be revolutionary to the whole human society. Since GMO salmon will contribute both environmentally and

world becomes GM foods or their products, we could not imagine what will happen to human from a point of view of the food problem. People who advocate GM crops and some people affirm that it is an obvious fact to be guaranteed to solve the food problem because of improvement productivity. However, the fact is definitely not true. There is no relationship between the prevalence of hunger in a given country and its population (Lappe, 1998). The real reason of hunger and famine is the public are poverty, unequal division and limited foods in developing countries. The food problem is not about how yields increase, it is related to the fair distribution of food.Finally, to prevent GMO, it should

concern. While proponents of GMOs argue that testing has shown no adverse effects of GMOs, virtually all of the testing has been done by the GMO industry. However, several independent studies have shown that GM crops have lower nutritional value. Since GMOs were introduced, reviews of medical records have shown that the number of food allergies have significantly increased. In addition, the same GMO’s that are being sold for human consumption produce a toxic pesticide in the foods cells, which means humans are consuming poison (Batalion n.d.). While H.R. 4432 is sequestered in the U.S. House of Representative’s subcommittee of Health and not likely to emerge in the 113th Congress, the

average person really does not know much about GMOs or even what a GMO is. Peter R. et al. define a GMO as an organism whose genetic material has been modified in a way that doesn't occur in either nature or cross-breeding. These changes give the plants new characteristics, which generally include insect resistance or tolerance to certain herbicides (qtd in Udriste and Badulescu 308). Regardless of the public's ignorance on the topic, GMOs are without doubt a large aspect in the agricultural community. C. James reports that as of 2014, there were approximately 181.5 million hectares of GMO crops across twenty-eight countries (qtd in Udriste and Badulescu 310). Nearly anyone who eats food

to do so.
About 70-80% of today’s processed food contains GMOs. If you have never
questioned where the food you consume on a daily basis comes from, it’s time to start
questioning. A GMO is a new version of a plant or animal that is created by altering
genes using biotechnology. Today, more than 40 types of plants have been genetically
modified and are available buy. On top of this, 90% of Canola, 88% of Corn and 94% of
soy are genetically modified. The FDA claims that GMOs are nothing to worry about,
and that it is perfectly healthy to consume food that is artificially made. From their
perspective, genetically modified plants are just as safe and tested the same as

concern to many environmentalists. This would only be a serious danger to natural ecosystems if cultivated plants were not so highly domesticated and ubiquitous naturally. Furthermore, many GMOs have been made sterile to prevent the spread of their genetic material.The Economic Impacts of GMOs.Probably driving most debates on GMO use is the underlying issue of economics. Agriculture is a business and businesses need to make money. Bringing a GM food to market is a lengthy and costly process, and of course agri-biotech companies wish to ensure a profitable return on their investment. Many new plant genetic engineering technologies and GM plants have been patented, and patent infringement is a big

Organic vs. Inorganic Meats
Life is based on decisions. You wake up and decide what to wear, what to eat, and decide
how to get to work. While choosing your next meal at a grocery store, ask yourself this question;
are you more likely to buy organic or inorganic meat? Some may think this is a scam, that food
industries reel you into for a couple of extra dollars. Does one really know about the backstory of
these organic or nonorganic animals that they are purchasing? The sad reality is animals that are
considered inorganic meats are treated more poorly compared to the animals that are organic
meats, because of the suffrage faced before slaughter. Animals put in the category of inorganic

The copyright is not of sensible significance so far for European farmers since they are raising GE only to a minute amount. But farmers of North and South America are by now in use step by step beneath control of Monsanto's domination claims.Monsanto brought its genetically modified food to EuropeNo doubt, the Genetically-modified foods (GM foods) have completed a large splatter in the reports recently.

Since each bar is a different size, prices will be represented in dollars per oz. Every bar on my list is organic, non-GMO, peanut-free… you get the idea. As a result, they are all in the “luxury” price range compared to other snacks. It hurts to spend more on two bars than for a whole box at Walmart, but I ask you to suspend your skepticism. I too subsisted on cheaper sustenance for some time, but when you can’t bear the guilt of biting into your third cliff bar in 10 minutes, you will come around.

Ernest Hemingway’s Hills like White Elephants
The short story Hills like White Elephants by Ernest Hemingway is a story about a man and woman who are sitting at a bar at a small train station somewhere in Spain. They seem to be having a heated conversation about a mysterious “operation”. The author never explicitly says what the issue is between the man and woman, but it can be assumed it is about a huge and personal decision they have to make because of the literary devices the author uses. Throughout the story the author hints at what the mysterious operation really is. Hemingway uses symbolism, setting, and imagery to convey

Walter Freeman and the Invention of the Lobotomy
In Steely Library’s digital archives, one of the postcards from the Gilliam family collection is entitled Western Kentucky Asylum for the Insane, Hopkinsville, KY. The postcard dates back to 1915 and portrays a beautiful building, complete with red bricks and white columns. Many of the insane asylums around this time were built similarly, but even their picturesque exterior could not hide the horrors which occurred within. Insane asylums built in the early to mid 1900s were still getting on their feet, and many of them encountered problems with patient care early on

When I was a child, my late father and I would spend every moment of the summer season on
the sparkling white sand of the beach near our home. We would dance, kicking up the shiny
surface so that the droplets glimmered like diamonds in the sunlight. We would lie on our backs
and stare at the sky, until the swirling clouds began to take on our imaginative shapes mingled
together by our fantastical minds. We would grip imaginary weapons and fight, thrusting swords
like the most violent of fantasy pirates. These unforgettable days went on and on, a never ending
cycle of blue skies, imprinted forever in my mind. My earliest memories are filled with images

How much of a threat does the robotics revolution represent for human employment in New Zealand in the next 30 years?
In order to understand the threats that robotics may pose to human employment in the future, it is important to examine the ways in which robots and computerization are already influencing different employment industries today, and how they have changed our labor practices in the past. If this information is then compared with current trends and statistics in New Zealand’s employment market conclusions can be drawn about how robotics might influence New Zealand employment in the next thirty years.
Evolution in employment methods has been seen in the

A review of “Indigenous remain ‘asset rich, dirt poor’ 25 years after Mabo”.
In the article “Indigenous remain ‘asset rich, dirt poor’ 25 years after Mabo”, Indigenous affairs editor, Fitzpatrick (2017) presents the socioeconomic situation of the Aboriginal people, using the views of the former prime minister’s advisor, Josephine Cashman. Miss Cashman pointed out that the promises made to the indigenous people, presented in the Mabo case, had not been fulfilled accordingly after the year 1992. Many indigenous people still have inadequate housing, poor health, restricted education and lower average incomes. About 25 years from the Wik decision, many Aboriginals were classified under the

becomes evident that Tom Buchanan does not abide by this. On the other hand, Jay Gatsby is presented as congenial and welcoming, considering that he frequently provides strangers with a party and copious amounts of food and drink, contrasting majorly with Tom’s lack of hospitality. The gender roles within The Great Gatsby also help to demonstrate these two men’s differences, as the social hierarchy at the time suggested women were below men in all aspects, other than housework. Therefore, Gatsby and Tom’s personalities can be presented in their actions towards women and a clear indicator of Tom’s view towards women is exposed in Chapter Two, whilst there is a collection of people at the

Wisely Use Of Social Media
In the era of modernity, the application of technology is already inevitable, especially the use of social media. Social media such as Facebook, Twitter and YouTube have come into widespread use globally. As we all know, Mark Zuckerberg, as the chairman and chief executive officer of Facebook is ranked as one of the top ten wealthiest people in the world. The success of Mark Zuckerberg can directly show that the amount of people who use Facebook is numerous. As the use of social media has become increasingly popular, it brings both the good and the bad effects to our society. However, I believe that the
