Lack of education

an insufficiency, shortage, or absence of something required or desired something that is required but is absent or in short supply

Imagine seaMost Americans are conscious of the privation and misery that exist in third world countries all around the globe. Each day millions of people in destitute counties are left starving and weakened from illnesses. Several African countries such as, Sudan, Tanzania, and Ethiopia are quintessential third world countries; they are some of the most deprived countries in the world. In these nations, warfare and government may set the foundation of poverty and disease, but several other causes throw logs into the burning fire. Lack of education in Africa is another cause for poverty and ailment. Hundreds of millions of Africans are illiterate. Due to the lack of education about disease in the continent, millions are infected with lethal illnesses annually. Some of these disease include tuberculosis, Ebola, malaria, and of course the most well known sickness the AIDS virus.
From a very young age Africans are disadvantaged when it comes to being educated. Only 56% of African children attendschool and only about a third of that number actually finishes grade school. For the fortunate children who are able to attend a school, life is astonishingly harder than any American student would know. Schools have very little equipment, having a chalkboard is considered privileged and most schools do not have desks, just cold, dirt floors for their students to sit on. Space is another concern. Schools are exceedingly overpopulated; some are so congested that the students cannot spread their books out. In many cases teachers are forced to teach hundreds of students do to the lack of educators. Students are taught in the blistering heat and bitter cold, for their schools have no heat or air conditioning. Additionally…...

Lack of Sleep

...A lack of sleep is becoming a common problem among people in modern times. Discuss the causes of sleep deprived, and the effects it has on a person’s personal and working life. You must support your answer with suitable examples. Sleep deprivation occurs when we do not get enough sleep or when the quality of the sleep is poor. People who are deprived of sleep perform as badly as or even worse than people who have adequate sleep. Since sleep is a time for the body to regenerate vital organs and functions, especially neurons. In fact, scientific has announced that neurons have been studying for 30 years. Therefore we need to know what are the effects and causes of sleep deprivation. People often do not have any idea what is disturbing their sleep and they often wake up in the night without realizing why. Environmental noise disturbance, room temperature and a poor mattress are some of the most insidious causes of sleep deprivation. The discomfort leads to partial awakening and restless sleep. At night, some people like to drink caffeinated drinks to keep them awake. Thus, I usually use caffeine to keep me alert, complete my work and study during examination and in the hope of achieving the best in class. Sometime I drink coffee for the extra boost in the morning, to help me get through the day without getting drowsiness. There is a close relationship between depression and sleep......

Henrietta Lacks

...Ethical issues: The main ethical issues in this case is that researches at Johns Hopkins Hospital used Henrietta’s cell in multiple researches and send her cells to other researchers around the world without her family’s consent. Moreover, the Lackes themselves were used in medical research without informed consent, and Henrietta’s medical records were release to journalists without her family knowing. These are issues because the cells of Henrietta lack were used to create “immortal” cells that provided a steady supply of cells for medical research and allowed to find cure for multiple diseases, and guaranteed the medical industry millions of dollar when her family his struggling to pay for healthcare. Moreover, researchers at Johns Hopkins asked the Lack’s family to give blood sample to test for cancer when in fact, the sample were used solely to identify their mother’s cell. The researchers never contacted back the Lack’s family, and some of them still wonder if they have the same cancer that killed their mother. These issues in this case concern the broad category of consumer confidence issues where employers and employees have responsibilities to their customers or clients. Johns Hopkins, a healthcare provider institution, and its doctors and researchers who are the care giver had responsibilities to their patient Henrietta and her family. In addition, the case is concerned with the specific are of fiduciary responsibilities, and client confidentiality and......

The Lack of Diy

...The LACK of Do-It-Yourself People make and repair their own designs for hundreds of years. This concept of making your own things is known as Do-It-Yourself (DIY). Do-It-Yourself contains aspects of building, repairing and modifying things without the help of a paid professional. A subculture, or better-said counterculture, from the 1970s that makes use of DIY is punk. Punk sets itself off against society and wants to be focussed on the capacity of an individual through self-expression. DIY within the punk subculture can be seen as a rejection of the need to purchase items or use existing systems or processes that would foster dependence on established societal structures. It needs to be stated that punk deliberately chose to use DIY. Nowadays punk slowly fades away out of society. However DIY is still actively used. A company that propagates DIY is IKEA. Nevertheless, IKEA is as Do-It-Yourself as a supermarket where you can take your products from the shelves. Thus, IKEA abuses the concept of DIY as intended by the punk movement. These different examples of DIY show how widely the interest in this topic varies over time and space. In the search for what makes DIY so widely applied, DIY will be used as the central common feature in the analysis and comparison between values and goals of the subculture of punk and the multinational store IKEA. This article argues that IKEA has nothing in common with DIY and therefore it gets mistreated by IKEA. A comparison will......

Henrietta Lacks

The cell lines they need are “immortal”—they can grow indefinitely, be frozen for decades, divided into different batches and shared among scientists. In 1951, a scientist at Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore, Maryland, created the first immortal human cell line with a tissue sample taken from a young black woman with cervical cancer. Those cells, called HeLa cells, quickly became invaluable to medical research—though their donor remained a mystery for decades. In her new book, The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks, journalist Rebecca Skloot tracks down the story of the source of the amazing HeLa cells, Henrietta Lacks, and documents the cell line's impact on both modern medicine and the Lacks family. Who was Henrietta Lacks? She was a black tobacco farmer from southern Virginia who got cervical cancer when she...

Lacks

...There are many reasons that Henrietta Lacks did not give informed consent. First, the form that Henrietta signed at John Hopkins gave permission for her doctors to “perform any operative procedures…that they deem necessary in the proper surgical care and treatment of _________________,” (Skloot, Immortal, pg. 31). Henrietta’s tissues were taken, but not for the purpose of treating her cancer (as it had already been diagnosed and she was about to begin radium treatments). Second, because of her racial and socio-economic status, Henrietta was vulnerable and may have felt she didn’t have much of a choice when it came to giving consent. The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks by Rebecca Skloot is about a Southern-Christian African-American woman who has developed a deadly disease, in which she later dies of. What stands out in the book the most is how Mrs. Lacks was treated because of her ethnicity and how Skloot's race played a role in some of the treatment in the book. Reading this, I thought to myself: if Henrietta would have been white in her lifetime, she would have had a better advantage in life. If Skloot would have been African-American she probably would have emphasized racism. If both of their races would have been different, the whole perspective of the book would have changed. The treatment of African-Americans back in the day was very harsh and cruel. Henrietta Lacks was one of thousands of people that suffered a gruesome disease during a time of racial......

Henrietta Lacks

...The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks Henrietta Lacks, was an African- American raised by her grandfather with a lot of her cousins. She grew up in Virginia a very kind women who would take care of anyone but could also take care of herself. She was short and beautiful. Henrietta and her cousin David married when she was twenty and he was twenty-five. Both were hard working. Henrietta gave birth to five kids and the oldest was put in a mental institution. Henrietta developed cervical cancer in her early thirties. While in a colored hospital named Hopkins, Doctor Howard Jones took samples of Henrietta’s normal cells and of her cancerous ones. The doctors expected the cells to die after a short period of time like all other cells do. To their surprise Henrietta’s cancerous cells did not die, they multiplied. This was amazing to the doctors. The cells were immortal but Henrietta was not and died in 1951. Doctor Jones sold the cells to any other doctors interested. Doctors used the cells for all types of tests without informing the family or giving them money from the profit they made from the cells which they called HeLa. Some doctors made factories which were only for the production of HeLa. Later when the family found out about the cells they were very upset that the doctors didn’t ask for permission to use her cells and that they didn’t acknowledge Henrietta. David could not take care of the kids himself so he remarried and had two cousins move in to help. Ethel, one of the......

Henrietta Lacks

...August 3, 2011 The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks Loretta Pleasant, also known Henrietta Lacks, Hennie and many other names was born August 1, 1920 in Roanoke, Virginia. Henrietta was a poor African American woman who worked as a tobacco farmer. She lived with her parents and eight older siblings. After her mother Eliza died from giving birth to her tenth child, Hennie along with her brothers and sisters, were distributed amongst the family and Hennie ended up living on hillside with her grandfather, Tommy Lacks in his home-house. It was a four bedroom log cabin with plank floors and gas lanterns. Once Loretta moved in with her grandfather, she met and married her first cousin David Lacks after their two children were born. Henrietta Lacks and David, also known as Day, had a total of five children; Sonny, Dale, Elsie, Lawrence and Joe. Elsie was their second child. She was born with epilepsy, a disorder of the nervous system. Once diagnosed, Elsie was sent to an institution known as the Hospital for the Negro Insane in Crownsville, Virginia. While she was residing at the institution, scientists were running tests on patients without consent. The scientists would drill a hole into the patients’ brains and drain the fluids to get the images of their brains, which led to major symptoms such as dizziness and vomiting. On January 29, 1951, Henrietta traveled to John Hopkins Hospital after noticing a lump inside of her cervix and bleeding consistently. John Hopkins was......

Lack of Democracy

...Lack of Democracy of the Colonies in the 1760’s “We the people of the United States, in order to form a more perfect union, establish justice, insure domestic tranquility…” written and adopted in 1787, the Preamble to the Constitution establishes the government in which we have set up today. This document called for a “republican form of government”, or what today we would call a representative democracy. Though our government is a form of democracy, it was not always this way. In 1760 colonial America, the colonies were lacking certain democratic principles, and therefore I would consider the colonies not to have been a democracy. If you ask 100 different people what their definition of democracy is, you will probably get 100 different answers. In my mind, I would describe democracy as government by the people, for the people. I would say that a democracy’s decisions should be made for the best interest of the vast majority of the population. Those decisions could be achieved in a direct or representative democracy, as long it does in fact benefit the majority. I believe that everybody should get a say. Everybody should get to vote- regardless of education, background, or ethnicity. Government by the people for the people, for the best interest of the people, is how I would define democracy. Now, taking into account my definition of democracy, when asked if the colonies had become democratic by 1760, I would most certainly have to say no. Eight of the colonies at the......

Lack of Sleep

...Lack of sleep has harmful physical and mental effects to the human body. As is commonly known, the human body needs at least eight hours of rest each night. These eight hours are used by the body to recover the health of cells in bones, muscles and organs. However, most people in actuality do not sleep enough time. As a result of this, we can observe different pathological conditions on people who don’t have more than two hours of rest daily. Some of the effects that lack of sleep produce in the human body are muscular injuries, depression and behavior changes. The muscles make us what we are. One of the functions of the muscular system is to give us shape and form. At the same time, the muscular system is in charge of supporting the weight of the different systems that compound our body, like nervous, skeletal, digestive, reproductive, etc… Moreover, the most important function is to produce movement. Different fibers form a single muscle. They contract and stretch hundreds of times to give movement to the whole body. This constant stretching starts damaging the fibers. Not enough sleep to recover the muscular cells in the fibers result in injuries and muscular pain all over the body. After two days without enough sleep the body start feeling fatigued. Blurry vision, high blood pressure, abnormal high body temperature and muscular pain give a bad mood to the body and a hurry to sleep. On the other hand, on a day full of responsibilities there is not time to stop. These......

The Lack of Early Childhood Education in Minority Neighborhoods

...The Lack of Early Childhood Education in Minority Neighborhoods Gildon R Turner AIU Online Abstract This country prides itself in being a better place for people to come and work better and to get a better education. We are falling far too short on both counts more so with education. We are still not separated and equal. This paper will talk to you about the differences in the minority neighborhoods and why our government should be taking a closer look at the lack of early childhood education and how this education is an investment into our future. The Lack of Early Childhood Education in Minority Neighborhoods Early childhood education is an investment in our future. Haycock, K (2011) stated that, “In minority neighborhoods there are less early childhood educational facilities and if they exist low-income and minority students are less likely than their white and more affluent peers to have the teachers with the proper academic background to teach the subject matter they are teaching”. Due to the shape of the economy at the present time, it is even harder for minority children to receive this type of education. Most are one parent families and are not making the money it would cost to send their children to a good head start program. “So when black and Latino twelfth-graders perform at about the same level as white eight graders, it is not just a “minority” problem; it’s a national......
