  • Becoming A Veterinarian

    4 pages in length. Some people believe that being a veterinarian is more challenging than becoming a human doctor in light of the many different animal species diagnosed and treated by that single individual. Indeed, the extent to which becoming a veterinarian is both rigorous and rewarding underscores the basic motivation behind the desire to take this career path; that it requires the combined elements of unwavering commitment to animal welfare and sound business sense speaks to the unique duality of this profession. Bibliography lists 4 sources.

  • In Praise of Wolves by R.D. Lawrence Reviewed

    This is a 3 page review of R.D. Lawrence’s “In Praise of Wolves”. Spanish born R.D. Lawrence lives on a 100-acre wilderness farm in Haliburton Highlands, 170 km north of Toronto, Ontario and has written over 29 books on nature and wildlife. In the spring of 1983, Lawrence and his wife traveled to Ishpeming in the Upper Peninsula in Michigan to study an untamed but captive pack of wild wolves and compared their behavior to those he had previously studied in the wild and with the two wolf cubs which he himself had raised. During the study and his use of other studies he has conducted on packs in the wild, Lawrence often contradicts other scientific theories in that he proposes that in many ways, wolves in the wild provide a much closer study and comparison to human behavior than do many studies on primates, considered humans’ closest natural relatives. In addition, Lawrence through the use of biological, sociological and psychological comparisons is not afraid to apply human terms to wolves in the text. Instead, Lawrence has found that in many ways, humans could learn from wolf behavior in terms of their handling of aggression (as opposed to the human emotion of anger) and stress in the wild. Bibliography lists 2 sources.

  • History and Ecology of the Chimpanzee

    5 pages in length. When one considers the chimpanzee, the first thing that comes to mind for many is the effort put forth by wildlife observer Jane Goodall. The extent to which Goodall studied wild chimpanzees has provided both the scientific and lay communities with a significantly better understanding of their ecology, as well as a clearer picture of their historical evolution as a species. Bibliography lists 6 sources.

  • Making Hunting A Deviant Behavior

    6 pages in length. Society is filled with activities not readily classified as deviant within the scope of acceptance when enough people consider them "normal" by cultural standards. The United States - which may have more routine actions deemed normal than other countries because of its multicultural composition - relishes the "sport" of boxing where men purposely inflict pain and injury upon one another to determine who is the best. Americans also enjoy taking the lives of other animals in the name of recreation and then displaying the stuffed anatomy as an example of man's superiority and prowess. The two activities have only one difference: people can decide to put themselves in harms way while animals cannot, an ethical and environmental connotation that demands hunting be deemed deviant. Bibliography lists 3 sources.

  • Massachusetts' Inhumane Racing of Greyhounds

    5 pages in length. Greyhound racing in Massachusetts is one of the state's most popular and revenue-driven events. The excitement mirrors that of a horse track where bettors become as involved in the sport's politics as they do in the wagers. On the surface, one might not think that greyhound racing is anything but a fun activity for both dog and spectator, but one would not be privy to the gruesome reality behind the inhumane sport, where it is the residual effect of racing that proves most detrimental to the dogs. Bibliography lists 6 sources.

  • ANA Code of Ethics for Nurses

    A 3 page essay that describes the ANA Code of Ethics for Nurses and then addresses the topics of recommendations for areas of weakness and feasibility of enforcement. Bibliography lists 3 sources.
