Down With the People Who’s to blame for the political mess? You. By: Jacob Weisberg America wants everything to just fix itself or be fixed by the government but without the government growing. In fact most Americans would rather lessen government as a whole, though this is more of a republican view then a democratic one. (I guess everyone is bias based on his or her own wants, opinions, and favorable party.) Weisberg continues by stating in the article that one year ago 59% of Americans liked the economic stimulus plan but after a few months almost the same majority said Barack Obama was spending too much money on it. Though I don’t really agree with Barack Obama on really anything, I do see the conflicts and compromises that go into making such a big plan with a lot of pressure on it. Unfortunately Americans tend to change their mind a lot, due to freedom of speech and all that. This can make pleasing the majority of people even more difficult than it had been before. Personally I don’t think Weisberg did that great of a job explaining this subject, it just sounds like he’s complaining about everything and everybody with a very narrow minded attitude. As a current teenager I know that the outcome of this plan will likely affect my generation the most in the coming years if not the generations after ours. In my opinion the plan is a good idea but the way they want it to be executed is not. To me government programs are just made for lazy, and most of the time uneducated people who did not apply themselves to the extent of their abilities. Yes there are exceptions but very few. Unemployment should be more limited, Welfare should be more selective to who they give money to or we will have more OctoMoms who have several children just to get more welfare. It was actually appealing when he made the joke about people spending more time “watching American…...

...Survey of Literature 25 May 2010 Life with Down syndrome “ Down syndrome is a genetic disorder that causes mental retardation and physical it is caused by the presence of an extra copy of chromosome number 21” (“Down syndrome” par.1). Down syndrome is the most frequent genetic cause of mild to moderate intellectual and developmental, it occurs in out 1 of 800 births (“Down syndrome” par.1). The discovery of Down syndrome was in 1866 by Dr. John Langdon Haydon Down, who worked in an English hospital for mental disabilities. Dr. Down had notice that many of the people cared for in the hospital shared certain physical features that is related to Down syndrome. About 100 years later, a French scientist figured out it was genetics that caused the problem (“Thumbs up for Dr. Down” par. 1). Life with Down syndrome, physical and mental disability caused by extra chromosome, creates life challenges from birth to adulthood. Being born with Down syndrome is such challenge for new born babies. “During the early years of life children with Down syndrome are ten times more likely than other children to develop a potentially fatal disease…or defective development of the spinal cord” (“Infants and preschool children” par.21). About half of babies with Down syndrome are born with heart defects, which mean their hearts, grow differently and don’t work as they should usually, these problems can be fixed by surgery (“Down syndrome” par.3). “Kids with Down syndrome are more likely to get......

Down Syndrome

...Down syndrome, also known as Trisomy 21, is a condition in which extra genetic material causes delays in the way a child develops, both mentally and physically. It affects about 1 in every 800 babies born in the United States. A person with Down syndrome has 47 chromosomes instead of the usual 46. The physical features and medical problems can vary widely from child to child. While some kids with Down syndrome need a lot of medical attention, others live healthy land fulfilling lives. Every human being with Down syndrome has a widely recognized appearance, flattened nose, single crease in the palm of the hand, Small ears, small mouth, upward slanting eyes, and wide short hands with short fingers. The physical development of people with Down syndrome is often slower than normal. Most of the children who are born with this disorder never each their average adult height. They may also have delayed mental and social development. Some of the common problems include impulsive behavior, poor judgement, short attention span, and slow learning. In some cases, when children with Down syndrome become aware of their limitations they may feel frustrated and angry. Obesity can become a problem for older children and adults. Getting plenty of activity and avoiding high-calorie foods are important. Before beginning sports activities, the child's neck and hips should be examined. Behavioral training can help people with Down syndrome and their families deal with the frustration, anger, and......

Down Syndrome

...THE REPORT DOWN SYNDROME ( TRISOMY 21 ) Down syndrome is a developmental disorder caused by an extra copy of chromosome 21 (which is why the disorder is also called "trisomy 21"). Having an extra copy of this chromosome means that each gene may be producing more protein product than normal. Cells seem to tolerate this better than having not enough protein, or having altered protein due to a mutation in the DNA sequence. However, producing too much protein can also have serious consequences, as seen in Down syndrome. Genes on chromosome 21 that specifically contribute to the various symptoms of Down syndrome are now being identified. Down syndrome is typically caused by what is called nondisjunction. If a pair of number 21 chromosomes fails to separate during the formation of an egg (or sperm), this is referred to as nondisjunction. When that egg unites with a normal sperm to form an embryo, that embryo ends up with three copies of chromosome 21 instead of the normal two. The extra chromosome is then copied in every cell of the baby's body. Interestingly, nondisjunction events seem to occur more frequently in older women. This may explain why the risk of having a baby with Down syndrome is greater among mothers age 35 and older. In rare cases Down syndrome is caused by a Robertsonian translocation, which occurs when the long arm of chromosome 21 breaks off and attaches to another chromosome at the centromere. The carrier of such a translocation......

...Down syndrome http://children.webmd.com/tc/down-syndrome-topic-overview) Here in this study the subject of Down syndrome will be discussed. An attempt to educate on the cause and what the disease is will be discussed and talked about. First of all what is Down syndrome? Down syndrome is according to (Web MD) is a set of physical and mental traits that are caused by a gene problem that happens before birth. In majority of children with this disease they inherit similar traits that cause them to resemble one another. They usually are short and stocky children and are to a certain degree have mental retardation traits also. There may be one in the crowd that barely has the full look or mental status. Yes, it is long term. It is not something you can just get rid of by taking medications. It is something you have to live with and deal with for the rest of your life. There are programs out there to help you cope if you are the patient or the family member. How do you get Down syndrome? Why does this happen? Some may think it is due to lack in prenatal vitamins during the pregnancy. That is not the case. It is caused by genetics and chromosomes which house and transport (DNA) in the body. (DNA) is what is used to determine the genetics of a person such as the color of their eyes, hair, or who they are related to and etc. It could be that having an extra chromosome can be one of the many unknown causes......

Down Syndrome

...Down Syndrome Down syndrome is an issue with the chromosomes in a human that not only causes the child stress but additional stress to the parents. The human body is made of cells. All cells contain a center, called a nucleus, in which genes are stored. Genes, which carry the codes responsible for all our inherited characteristics, are grouped along rod-like structures called chromosomes. Normally, the nucleus of each cell contains 23 pairs of chromosomes, half of which are inherited from each parent. Down syndrome occurs when some or all of a person’s cells have an extra full or partial copy of chromosome 21. The most common form of Down syndrome is known as Trisomy 21. Individuals with Trisomy 21 have 47 chromosomes instead of the usual 46 in each of their cells. The condition results from an error in cell division called non-disjunction. Prior to or at conception, a pair of 21st chromosomes in either the sperm or the egg fails to separate. As the embryo develops, the extra chromosome is replicated in every cell of the body. This error in cell division is responsible for 95 percent of all cases of Down syndrome. Having an extra copy of this chromosome means that each gene may be producing more protein product than normal. Cells seem to tolerate this better than having not enough protein, or having altered protein due to a mutation in the DNA sequence. The condition leads to impairments in both cognitive ability and physical growth that range from mild to......

Down East

...ONLINE CASE Down East Spud Busters Down East Spud Busters is part of a conglomerate that represents the potato growers of eastern Canada and northern Maine and that also oversees the collection, processing, and distribution of potatoes and potato products. For many years, the industry functioned as a local cooperative. The cooperative was simply a collection center where potatoes were weighed and received, washed and graded, bagged and distributed. Potatoes were the only product. Potatoes were distributed in a variety of bag sizes and weights and were also sold loosely in large bins. The first phase of Down East Spud Busters’ strategic plan resulted in the building of a large manufacturing plant in northern Maine with a focus on value-added products. The major strategy is to process higher-value potato products. Those products include a frozen division line (French fries, home fries, gourmet stuffed potatoes, flavored potato skins, and so on), a dried-food division line (instant mashed potatoes, freeze-dried potatoes, potato pancake mix, and so on), and the traditional potato line (bagged potatoes, loose potatoes, microwave singles, baby potatoes, and so on). The corporate group figures that it can triple sales revenues from the existing yield of potatoes. The second phase of Down East Spud Busters’ strategic plan calls for a nationwide sales and distribution program. A gigantic market in retail food sales has gone untouched by this group of growers...

...Down syndrome Development Psychology Down syndrome Love a four letter word that many will take and throw around as though the word is a ball to be toyed with. One seeks to have someone say “I love you” no matter what their ability is as being mentally challenged or not. A parent does not love his or her child any less if he or she suffers an illness such as that of Down syndrome (DS). In order to completely understand how the love of a mother and father can be given to a child with such a disability, the individual needs to gain an understanding of what Down syndrome is. The reader of this paper will learn how Down syndrome got the name, what Down syndrome is, the case for this disorder, the facts that are known of Down syndrome. The methods used to test and find DS before the birth of a child. Statistical facts, the medical conditions which are present, how parents and teachers work with those born with DS. How the eating habits, sexuality habits of males and females with Down syndrome are viewed. The length of the life expectancy for someone who is challenged with DS compared to someone that is not mentally challenged. The last thing that I will cover within this paper is that of foundations that have been created to conduct research and treatment for those with Down syndrome and to answer the question that many may have as to there being a cure for Down syndrome.

...mission because “this clan was led by a warlord Mohammed Farrah Aldid,” who was known to have attempted to kill US Army soldiers before “had picked a fight with the United States and it was no doubt going down”(3). 3. Eversmann was made the leader of his chalk because he was experienced and had known all of his “chalk” members “so well they were like brother.” (3). Also two other “men in front of him had been sent home due to illness and seizure” (10). A majority of the men under Eversmann were shot, however Eversmann had escaped any injury. 4. Chief Officer Wolcott was the pilot of the Black Hawk Super Six One. He was a well-liked pilot. “His unflappable cool had earned him the nickname ‘Elvis’, that and his dead on impression of the late rock idol” (77). The Super Six One helicopter was hit by an R.P.G. which spiraled to the ground. “The spin continued. The second turnabout was more violent…Elvis made the last radio transmission. –Six One going down” (79). The soldiers believed it would be hard to take down the Black Hawk because it was made to take on a lot of fire. It was also hard to launch R.P.G’s in the air. They should have changed their opinion about the ability to take out a Black Hawk when eight days before the battle another Black Hawk was shot down (88). During the crash Wolcott died from the impact of the Black Hawk hitting the ground. It had only taken a few minutes for help to arrive but by that time only 2 of the crew members survived......

The White Rose: Quiet People Never Go Down in History

...Sarah Omonoyan Mrs. Burchartz HRE101 Friday, January 17, 2015 The White Rose: Quiet People Never Go Down In History The story of The White Rose is the tale of what the opening question for my individual assignment is about, "For us today how can we see good in all around us even when evil is present and show the meaning of the kingdom of heaven is now but not yet." Hans and Sophie Scholl were German teenagers in the 1930s. Like other young Germans, they enthusiastically joined the Hitler Youth. They believed that Adolf Hitler was leading Germany and the German people back to greatness. Gradually, Hans and Sophie began realizing that Hitler and the Nazis were enslaving and destroying the German people. They also knew that open rebellion was impossible in Nazi Germany, especially after the start of World War II. Many of the citizen supported the troops and the government. But Hans and Sophie Scholl begged to differ . They believed that it was the duty of a citizen, even in times of war, to stand up against evil, especially when it is sending hundreds of thousands of citizens to their deaths.The most significant part was they formed the White Rose movement, one of the few movements inside Nazi Germany that was openly opposed to Hitler.They published six anti-Nazi leaflets, graffiti began appearing in large letters on streets and buildings: “Down with Hitler! . . . Hitler the Mass Murderer!” and . . . Freedom! . . . Freedom!” Sadly, they were arrested, tried for......

Down-Syndrme

...3 2014 Genetics Down Syndrome Down syndrome (DS) or Trisomy 21 is a complex developmental genetic disorder in which a person has 47 chromosomes instead of 46. Normally, a fertilized egg has 23 pairs of chromosomes. But in most cases, people living with Down syndrome have an extra copy of chromosome 21 also known as Trisomy 21, which is responsible for 95% Down syndrome cases and most common genetic cause of human mental retardation, with an incidence of 1-600/1-1000 live births. It is also responsible for premature pregnancy failure. It is the leading cause of cognitive impairment. Down syndrome occurs because of an abnormality characterized by an extra copy of genetic material on all or part of the 21st chromosome. Every cell in the body contains genes that are grouped along chromosomes in the cell's nucleus or center. There are normally 46 chromosomes in each cell, 23 inherited from your mother and 23 from your father. When some or all of a person's cells have an extra full or partial copy of chromosome 21, the result is Down syndrome. Down syndrome is associated with mild to moderate learning disabilities, developmental delays, characteristic facial features, and low muscle tone in early infancy. Many individuals with Down syndrome also have heart defects, leukemia, early-onset Alzheimer's disease, gastro-intestinal problems, and other health issues. The symptoms of Down syndrome range from mild to severe. Life expectancy for individuals with Down syndrome has......

The Moon Is Down

...The Moon is down, a novel sponsored by the OSS and written by John Steinbeck, and for which he received a medal of honor, was published by Viking Press in March 1942. The story details a military occupation of a small town in Northern Europe by the army of an unnamed nation at war with England and Russia (much like the occupation of Norway by the Germans during World War II). Taken by surprise, a small coastal town is overrun by the invading army with little resistance. The town is important because it has a large coal mine. Colonel Lanser, the head of the invading battalion, along with his staff establishes his HQ in the house of Mayor Orden, the democratically elected and much-liked mayor of the town. As the reality of occupation sinks in and the weather turns bleak, with the snows beginning earlier than usual, the "simple, peaceful people" of the town are angry and confused. Colonel Lanser, a veteran of many wars, tries to operate under a veil of civility and law, but in his heart he knows that "there are no peaceful people" amongst those whose freedom has been taken away by force. The veil is soon torn apart when Alexander Morden, an erstwhile alderman and "a free man," is ordered to work in the mine. He strikes out at Captain Loft with a pick axe, but Captain Bentick steps into its path and dies of it. After a summary trial, Morden is executed by a firing squad. This incident catalyzes the people of the town and they settle into "a slow, silent, waiting revenge."......

Down Syndrome

...Down syndrome [Author Name(s), First M. Last, Omit Titles and Degrees] [Institutional Affiliation(s)] Author Note [Include any grant/funding information and a complete correspondence address.] Introduction: Down syndrome is a disorder which arises due to defects in chromosomes. It causes intellectual disabilities and physical abnormalities. Short stature and broad faces are the characteristics of this disorder. There are many causes of this disorder, but scientists put an emphasis of chromosomal abnormality and protein sequences the most. Role of chromosomes: The causes of the presence of this extra chromosome are still under consideration. Usually, maternal age is linked to this disorder. Due to higher birth rates in younger women, 80% of children with Down syndrome are born to women under 35 years of age. However, the exact cause of this disorder is still unknown. There are different types of down syndromes, but the causal factor is same. The human cell has 46 chromosomes in each cell but in this disorder the case is different. One of the chromosomes is called chromosome 21 which is known to be the leading cause of Down syndrome. All the people suffering from this disorder have an extra part of chromosomes 21. The presence of this extra chromosome changes the overall developmental pattern of the individual. A process causes the disorder we call nondisjunction. Nondisjunction happens when the pair of chromosomes do not get separated from each other during......

Down Sydrome

...I have done my report on trisomy 21. This disease was later named Down Syndrome. In 1866 a doctor named John Langdon Down first saw some children that were similar to some other mentally retarded children. He had no idea what this disease was, but was the first person to study it. As time went on medicine became more advanced. In 1959 a French doctor named Jerome Legeune saw people who had this unknown disease, and that they had 47 chromosomes instead of 46 chromosomes. This disease was then given a name, trisomy 21. Trisomy means triplication, so the chromosomes triple on the 21st chromosome. Doctors also called this disease Down Syndrome because the first person who studied it was John Langdon Down. Down Syndrome is caused by a mess-up in cell splitting called non-disjunction. Non-disjunction happens 95 % of all Down Syndrome cases. Scientists still don’t know why non-disjunction occurs, but it seems to have different effects on ages of women. For example, women that are 35 years old have a one in 400 chance of giving birth to a baby with Down Syndrome. While if your 40, the chances go to one in 110, and if your 45 the odds climb to one in 35. Three to four percent of all the cases of Down Syndrome are from Robertsonian Translocation. This happens when there are two breaks in the 14th and 21st chromosome. Then the 14th chromosome is switched with the extra 21st chromosome. Some of these cases triple on part of the 21st chromosome instead of the whole. ...
