Concussions Will Be the End of NFL

Intoduction A concussion usually occurs after a violent and hard blow to the head and it causes the brain to slam against the skull. In this case, the cerebrospinal fluid is not able to cushion the impact. Studies show that when a football player’s head gets injured, speeds in this instance range from 17 to 25 miles per hour. The force averaging to this has been estimated to be 98 times the force of gravity. When the player is hit, the shock passes through the brain fluid and bounces back off the skull. Usually, the concussion always occurs at the other side from the impact’s point. When a co ...

Science, Philosophy and Belief in God

This paper will defend that “Descartes gave God so much power in his philosophical system that without God the entire system would collapse, which proves the he was a religious philosopher as well as a strong supporter of science.” He uses the logical deduction to argue for the existence of God, claiming that to erase all doubt, he must examine the reality of the existence of God, and “... must examine likewise whether He can be a deceiver...”, two truths without which he does not see that he can “ever be certain of anything.” (Descartes Meditation 3, paragraph 4). He uses the idea of God bein ...

Critical Thinking and Emotions

There are two approaches: critical thinking or intuition and emotions. The matrix of Ethical Lens Environment suggests four different ways of understanding the personality. The analysis of the lens gave the ground to claim that, at some point of view, I prefer rights and responsibility. Therefore, I can use my core values: rationality and autonomy.

The evidence that protection of the other’s rights has no use and is not so precious so can ...

The Eco Friendly Printing Ink

In traditional practice, since the early 1960s, petroleum has been used in the production of printing ink despite its adverse effects to the environment. Petroleum-based inks are widely used due to the fact that they have quicker drying time than other natural and artificial pigments that are also available; these inks improve the overall productivity through enabling printers to run and perform faster, and they have high efficiency in printing as the work is much accurate, precise and presentable as explained by Larsen. In spite of the many benefits of petroleum-based inks, they are major ...

The Genetic Engineering

Psychological Consideration and Sociological Effects of Genetic Engineering The greatest controversy concerning the use of biomedical engineering technology, especially in cloning, is the risk posed to the health of the potential babies. According to tests conducted on animals, biomedical babies have a tendency to die during organogenesis in the womb or shortly after birth. Although this is not clearly understood, it has left scientists and various religions wondering whether it is worth trying in the first place if the products do not seem to survive anyway. In some instances, these babies w ...
