An Overview of Fuel Cell Technology
A 22 page paper that provides a comprehensive overview of fuel cell technology. Discussion includes: an introduction to fuel cells, what they are, how they work and the types of fuel cells in research; applications for fuel cell technology, including those that are already in use; fuel cell-powered motor vehicles and what the progress is in this industry, including manufacturers who have already introduced fuel cell-powered cars and the forecasts for the near future; issues concerning hydrogen; problems and disadvantages with fuel cells and a conclusion. Bibliography lists 6 sources.
Chemotherapy and Stem Cells
A 2 page paper discussing the stem cell aspect of chemotherapy. Stem cells are the progenitor cells of all types of blood cells, including the white blood cells that combat infection and invasion, and red blood cells that supply nourishment to all the tissues of the body. They primarily reside in the bone marrow, but some also can be found circulating in the blood. Cancer chemotherapy depresses bone marrow activity so that fewer blood cells are produced. Stem cell therapy involves harvesting bone marrow prior to chemotherapy treatment, then reintroducing it following treatment so that blood cell production can occur at optimum rates.

Eating Pets: Research Proposal
10 pages in length. Nothing can be considered a definite wrong when it exists within the confines of a cultural or religious reality. Despite the fact that other cultures or religions do not condone the particular practice - sometimes even condemning it to barbaric behavior as in the case of cannibalism - this incongruity in lifestyle does not automatically make it wrong. Distasteful, loathsome or regrettable perhaps but not inherently wrong by the standards under which it exists. Such is the case with eating pets - typically defined as dogs and cats - and the uproar it creates in countries like the United States where such activity is considered abominable; for others like the Pilipino, consuming dog is as commonplace as it is for Americans to eat livestock. India, with its universal reverence toward cows, is repulsed by the thought of devouring such a sacred animal. In short, the reason it is acceptable to eat animals like cows and sheep in some countries yet consisted wrong to eat dogs or cats in others is because the same animal is not given the same value in all cultures or religions.

Stem Cell Research/Not an Ethical Issue
A 6 page research paper/essay that argues that embryonic stem cells research is ethical. The writer bases this argument on the facts of reproduction and also presents the supposition that the real issue here is not stem cell research, per se, but the movement against abortion. The details of stem cell research are presented, along with relevant arguments supporting it. Bibliography lists 5 sources.
