Addiction To Methamphetamine

Meth is one of the most common existing psychoactive stimulants, whose abuse can lead to acute or chronic physiological and psychological problems. Medically, the drug is an important remedy to obesity, narcolepsy, and ADHD, although inmost cases most users abuse the drug, because of its pleasant effects, for example, increasing of sexual libido, alertness, and self-worth. Such effects result due to the ability of the drug to elevate the release of dopamine and serotonin quantities in its users’ brain. Meth is whitish in colour, with no strong smell, and easily soluble in most solvents, for ...

The dark ages? So much of what the average person knows, or thinks they know, about the Middle Ages comes from film and tv. When I polled a group of well-educated friends on Facebook, they told me that the word “medieval” called to mind Monty Python and the Holy Grail, Blackadder, The Sword in the Stone, lusty wenches, feasting, courtly love, the plague, jousting and chain mail. Roman de la Rose, M. 948, fol. 12r, 16th century (Morgan Library and Museum, New York) Perhaps someone who had seen (or better yet read) The ...

Transportation Security Administration

With increasing cases of global terrorism, the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) has been actively involved in screening of baggage for travelers into and out of the U.S. However, in order to secure the top flight performance, TSA needs to adopt several human resource ramifications. The first one is to change the design of the jobs offered under TSA. This was seen as a necessary step because of the professional-ethical issues that arose from the delivery of service. In this case, the employees either stole the baggage of travelers or colluded with criminals to smuggle arms. Therefor ...

The Neurological Basis of Morality

Morality is a system within society which guides our behaviour along a set of principles, such as: fairness, self-control and empathy. These guidelines are shaped by moral emotion such as anger towards unfairness which are the products of evolutionary pressures on social animals.

Historically, one of the best ways to gain insight into brain function is to look at patients with brain damage. In this case, the most widely studied disease is frontotemporal dementia (FTD). FTD is a neurodegen ...

Into the Wild by Jon Krakauer

Into the Wild is a befitting name for this novel. It not only has elements of the literal wild but it also is wild in mystery. This genre is a new one for me. I've never been much into true accounts of experiences. In fact, the only reason I read this was because my school necessitated I do so. I devoured this book within a span of 2 days. Who would think that merely a story of a man going off into the wild would be so enticing? The credit for that fully goes to the author. He endowed this novel with superb storytelling abilities. He made readers think about the man behind the mystery. He att ...

At the beginning of the book they moved to their foster parent’s house to be safe. When they were playing hide and go seek the youngest sister Luc ...
