Finding a Cure for Jack Williams
(One night, a young man, Jack Williams, has just finished dinner when he receives a phone call from a good friend, Bob Hayes. The following is a dialogue between them.)
Jack: Hello, is that you, Bob?
Bob: Yes, it is. How are you doing? I hope it’s not too late to call you.
Jack: Not a bit. I just had a bite to eat and was going to watch some TV, but I’m really glad you called. I really want to thank you for last night from the bottom of my heart. Man, had you not rescued me, I think I might have wound up spending the night in jail.
Bob: Not a problem! I’m really glad everything worked out as it did. It could have gotten nasty.
Jack: Yes, I had quite a bit to drink, but I was really behaving myself at the bar, when all of a sudden this guy elbows me, gives me a dirty look, and mutters something nasty in my ear. You know me—I don’t take rudeness lying down and in a blink of an eye we were both outside and he was picking a fight with me. You know the rest…….
Bob: It’s a good thing you thought of calling me, for when I arrived on the scene you looked a sight—with a bloody nose and a black eye. It could have been worse……..
Jack: Thank you so much for arriving in the nick of time—that guy was threatening to call the cops…. as if I were at fault!
Bob: It’s good that I was able to talk to him, mollify him, and get him to go home without calling the police, for you had both been violent with each other and you may have ended up spending the night in jail.
Jack: Thank you so much for preventing that from happening. I’ve been thrown behind bars all too often, the last couple of years. Those times I really did nothing to be thrown in jail—but yes, I had been drinking.
Bob: No worries, but honestly, Jack, it’s true, you’re drinking has gotten so much worse in the last couple of years. How does Angie put up with all…...

...guinea pig. He took some pus from cowpox blisters found on the hand of a milkmaid called Sarah. She had milked a cow called Blossom and had developed the telltale blisters. Jenner ‘injected’ some of the pus into James. This process he repeated over a number of days gradually increasing the amount of pus he put into the boy. He then deliberately injected Phipps with smallpox. James became ill but after a few days made a full recovery with no side effects. It seemed that Jenner had made a brilliant discovery. He then encountered the prejudices and conservatism of the medical world that dominated London. They could not accept that a country doctor had made such an important discovery and Jenner was publicly humiliated when he brought his findings to London. However, what he had discovered could not be denied and eventually his discovery had to be accepted – a discovery that was to change the world. So successful was Jenner's discovery, that in 1840 the government of the day banned any other treatment for smallpox other than Jenner's. ...

Finding Different Drugs to Cure Cancer

...ASSIGNMENT 3.1: FINDING DIFFERENT DRUGS TO CURE CANCER by Wanda G. Sellers August 21, 2013 English 115 Instructor: Professor Audrey L. Vaughan Cancer is a very devastating disease. It attacks every organ in the human body. Many people in the United States and in foreign countries have cancer. Cancer affects many people’s lives and many more people are being diagnosed with cancer each day. Everyday scientists and researchers are trying to come up with new medicines to cure cancer. In this paper, I will discuss the process of developing new drugs to treat cancer, and the costs of developing these drugs. According to the oncologists at the website, more doctors and scientists are always looking for better ways to treat people with cancer. To do this, they are constantly developing and studying new drugs as well as looking for new ways to use the existing drugs. When scientists are developing new drugs for cancer patients, there are many researchers involved. They must find the right chemicals before testing them to see how effective they are in helping people. Sometimes this process takes from 5 to 12 years. Sometimes it takes longer than that. After the new drugs are developed, more time has to be allowed for the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to approve the drugs before cancer patients can take them according to They do this by......

...Jack Kerouac's Rejection of Traditional Values in On the Road One of the most notable aspects of Jack Kerouac’s On the Road, is the author’s willingness todescribe his own behaviors and attitudes in ways that reject traditional values, but enable himto make observations about America. These range from things like excessive drinking, whichwould always be viewed negatively, to an interest in jazz and racial mixing, which would have been viewed negatively in the 1950’s but not today. Also, Kerouac was part of a literarymovement – the Beats – whose rejection of traditional values was well known. BecauseKerouac rejected traditional values, On the Road was very controversial, but it was alsoinfluential.On the Road is a clearly autobiographical book, in which “Kerouac makes no attempt toseparate himself from his narrator” (Bartlett 125). On the Road is based on Kerouac’s actualexperiences, and the characters are based on actual people who he knew. (Bartlett 120;Latham; Charters 410-411). Therefore, Kerouac admits to doing anything that the narrator, SalParadise, did.One form of behavior that would be always be viewed negatively is excessive drinking. Saloften admits to drinking, but Kerouac uses this to make some interesting observations. For example, there is the time when Sal is with his friend Terry, and her brother Rickey andRickey’s friend Ponzo. Since Ponzo is in the business of buying and selling manure, they planto spend the say looking for manure, but they end up spending......

...Between August and November 1888, the Whitechapel area in the East End of London became the scene of five or even six heinous and brutal murders. The identity of the killer of these poor victims has remained a mystery. This mysterious killer was given the name “Jack the Ripper”. Jack wasn’t the first serial killer in the world, but he had no doubt managed to captivate the entire London. All women murdered by Jack the Ripper were prositutes lived and worked in the slums in the East Eng of London. All victims except for one were brutally mutilated. At least three of the victims’ internal organs were even removed from their bodies. People proposed from this action that the Ripper might prossesed anatomical or surgical knowledge. Jack the Ripper was never caught and the whole London was terrorized. The crimes were widely reported in the newspapers and the notoriety of the Ripper endures. In the 1880s, Britain exprienced an influx of immigrants and some cities including the East End of London’s population swelled. The Whitechapel area in London’s East End was overcrowed with immigrants who did not have a job and housing. The area was full of people at or below the poverty line. Working and housing conditions were awful at that time. Many of the residents could not find a job and for those who were lucky to get a job, they were forced to work 15 hours a day. There was not much option for women without a spouse or family. They had to fight very hard in any means for themselves.......

Jack and the Purpose: a Synopsis

...has a few qualities of his own, none of them are sufficiently good. Hence the boy is symbolically referred as “Jack” on a few occasions (resembling “Jack of all trades, Master of none”). From his 3 friends, he finds out 3 totally different yet undeniable philosophies of life. Being an amateur poet, he writes a poem on this confusing state that he is going through. This poem itself is also visually shown throughout the film, along with the conversations which led to his realizations. The film is based on an Idea, not a story. So unlike narratives, it does not have a proper timeline, nor does it have a proper start or an end. THE POEM: The poem which the protagonist writes and which is used as a medium to show his feelings is called "The Purpose". It was originally written by Ojoswi Sur and finally drafted by Akasdeep Bhadra. The whole poem is given below: The Purpose wave after wave they come they go repeating over and over the same old show lost in the dune a grain of sand squeezed in the crowd no way to expand all with the same aim waiting for their turn to pour water on a fire that was meant to burn the water crawls slowly through a world insane just to add another drop in the ocean... do you think i am just like that? see them these towers of humanity cure of a diseased race hope of a fallen grace you know them,dont you? everybody does till kingdom......

Finding the Romance in Romantic Literature: William Wordsworth as Founding Father of Romantic Poetry

...Although love may occasionally show itself as a muse of Romantic poetry it has very little to do with Romanticism. Romanticism is considered to be an international artistic and philosophical movement that redefined the fundamental ways in which people in Western cultures thought about themselves and about their world.(Brooklyn College) The early Romantic period begins with the first edition of Lyrical Ballads by William Wordsworth - co-written by Samuel Taylor Coleridge. I'm going to specifically refer to three poetic works by Wordsworth when referring to the imagination, nature, and emotion used as components of Romantic Literature: "The Tables Turned", "My Heart Leaps Up", and "I Wandered Lonely As A Cloud." Imagination was considered to be one of the highest faculties of the mind during the Romantic era. The Romantics used their imaginations as the ultimate shaping tool for their literature. It was their creative power in that it was dynamic, active, and provided many functions for creating all art. Wordsworth suggested that it is also the faculty that helps humans to constitute reality for we not only perceive the world around us, but also in part create it. The Romantics are also extremely concerned with the healing nature of the imagination in that it can reconcile differences and opposites in the world of appearance. It inextricably enables us to "read" nature as a system of symbols. (Brooklyn College) Wordsworth uses all aspects of the Romantic view of......

Jack the Ripper

...Over the years, there have been many brutal murders all over the world. One of the most horendous and bloodiest series of murders took place in England in the late 19th century by a mysertious man known as "Jack the Ripper." Between August and November 1888, the Whitechapel area of London was the scene of five brutal murders. All of the murders were taken place less than a mile apart from each other. On August 31, 1888, Jack the Ripper killed his first victim. Mary Nichols' dead body was found in Buck's Row Whitechapel at around 3am. Her throat was cut and her body was disemboweled. Her murder was just the start of Jack the Ripper's "regin of terror." On September 8, 1888, the body of another prostitute was discovered in the backyard on 29 Hanbury Street. It was less than a mile away from Buck's Row, where the previous murder of Mary Nichols had taken place just a week before. This victim was Annie Chapman. Jack the Ripper removed her womb. When she was found, there was a leather apron tied around her body. That was a clue to who the murderer might have been. The area was flooded with police officers, and since there hadn't been any murders for a few weeks, they thought that they had scared him off. Shortly after Annie Chapman's murder, Sergeant William Thicke arrested John Pizer. John was known in the area as "Leather Apron." However, John Pizer was able to provide proof that he was not apart of the murder of Annie Chapman or Mary Nichols. Then he was released and......

...Despite the many murders that occurred frequently in Eastend in the 1880’s, Ripper’s murders were said to be ‘singular’ and ‘peculiar’ which suggests that it was unique and that the method of murder was very different. The phrases ‘extraordinary violence’ and ‘excess of effort’ infers that Jack the Ripper was vicious, brutal and went over the top. The victims were the ‘poorest of poor’ so the murderer was not trying to rob the victims. Since there was ‘no adequate motive in the shape of plunder’ it suggests that Jack the Ripper committed these crimes because he or she enjoyed killing. However the source describes the work of Jack the Ripper as the ‘work of a demented being’ which suggests that Jack the Ripper was mad. 2. Study Sources A, B and C Does the evidence of Source C support the evidence of Sources A and B about the Ripper murders? Explain your answer. (8) Sources A and C comment on how the victims were poor so money was not the murderer’s motive. Also the details of how the victim was murdered in source C supports the fact, in source A, that the murder was peculiar and had extra-ordinary violence. However source C is more detailed on the method of murder whereas source A is general describing the murder but not the method. Source C supports source A to a very little extent. Sources B and C agree on the fact that the murder was committed with the use of a knife – ‘In the neck there was a long incision’ ‘cutting the...

A Cure for Aids

...A CURE FOR AIDS Abstract This paper contains information from six different articles relating to finding a cure for AIDS. These articles are very similar in results for finding an actual cure for AIDS, but up until this point there is no actual cure for AIDS. However, the information that I have conducted has indicated an antiretroviral treatment that can suppress HIV – the virus that causes AIDS – and the antiretroviral treatment can delay illness for many years. After reading many articles I found that there is many scams out their that are trying to sell a cure for AIDS, so if you have aids don’t fall for these misleading they don’t work. Many people that are infected with this deadly virus don’t even know that they are infected. Many people don’t even develop symptoms after they first get infected with HIV. Others on the other hand tend to get very sick. The person will have flu – like illness within several days even to weeks after they have been exposed to the virus. The infected person will start to complain that they have a fever, headache, tiredness, and enlarged lymph nodes on their neck. These symptoms tend to go away by themselves after a few weeks. . This asymptomatic phase often lasts for years. The progression of this disease can vary among each individual, and this state can last for a few months to more than ten years. A CURE FOR AIDS There is no cure for AIDS or the HIV infection as of today. Although antiretroviral treatment can help suppress......

The object of this briefing is to inform all of you about the hope that has recently been discovered to possibly cure HIV/AIDS. One of the biggest germs of our time which is responsible for over 2 million lives lost is HIV/AIDS also known as Human Immune Deficiency Syndrome or Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome. There is an estimated 33 million people living with HIV/AIDS. This monster of a virus is crossing all ethnic lines as well as social classes and all age groups. It sees no color of the skin, your age or where you come from. What is HIV or by its scientific name the human immune deficiency syndrome or immunodeficiency virus: it is a modern day virus that according to some research dates back to the early 1950’s. As it grows today it has been around since the 1970’s in its current form. HIV has to forms, HIV-1B and HIV-1c. HIV-1B is mainly in the United States and HIV-1C is what we find in Africa.
