Cloning Pros and Cons

...Cloning is not new and experiments with frogs and toads date back to the 1970s . Experiments involving plants and animal embryos have been performed for years, yet experiments involving human beings have never been tried or thought possible, until "Dolly". Her birth shocked the scientific community and has spurred discussion about the possibility of human clones. In the following essay I am going to speak about the subject of Human Cloning, its pros and cons, and speak against the following issues. Pros of Human Cloning Prior to arguing against the human cloning it is imperative to note the positives of this genetic technology. Human cloning will allow doctors to determine the cause of spontaneous abortions, give oncologists an understanding of the rapid cell growth of cancer, allow the use of stem cells to regenerate nerve tissues, and advance work on aging, genetics, and medicines. Some people argue that cloning is the logical next step in reproductive technology. Identical twins are natural clones, so reproductive cloning can be regarded as a technological version of a natural process (McGee, 82). If a couple are infertile, why shouldn't they be able to produce clones of themselves? If a couple have lost a child, why shouldn't they be able to replace that loved individual with a clone if that is possible? Equally if someone has made a great contribution to science, music, the arts or literature, it seems like a good idea to produce more of them in the hope that we......

Technology: Its Pros and Cons

...Technology: its pros and cons. Thanks to technology, undoubtedly, we make better use of our time and manage all aspects of our lives too. Technology has been around since man discovered fire, then used tools and then made the wheel. Everything is invented, improved or discovered for our benefit. We all know technology surrounds us because it is crucial to mankind and we depend on its advancements to basically survive. In the internet-era we enjoy many things that we did not even fathom before and were mainly thought to be part of a science fiction book. Isn’t there more to it than meets the eye? Humans are creatures in need of face-to-face interaction with our own species and in need of close personal contact for warmth and bonding. We have yet to become conscious of how much of a significant impact technology has on this topic; its pros and cons. To begin with, we, humans, will never be able to keep up with the improvements of society without interacting with technology. All the advancements in communication systems we enjoy today are supposed to keep us better connected. Today’s generation has access to multiple gadgets and gizmos like cell phones, iPods, and computers. Moreover, these devices have programs themselves which further help us manage our social life. Through them we have access to Facebook, MySpace, Twitter and Tumblr, and we find that our friends are just one click away. We also make great use of Web cams, IM, e-mails and teleconferencing for work because......

...& Sprint When we think of the number 3 and 4 cell phone carriers, only two come to mind, T-Mobile and Sprint. Both are known for being the most cost friendly companies, with a close amount of customer base and cell coverage. T-Mobile and Sprint both run their companies in many different ways, Sprint launched the I-Phone were T-Mobile chose to become a Samsung Champion, both have different approaches to deploying their LTE service and both use very different cell phone frequencies. While both companies struggle to get as many customers as possible, Sprint decided to follow in the steps of AT&T and Verizon and launch the Apple I-Phone. With the I-Phone being the “must have” device, Sprint felt it would be their saving grace to close a deal with apple and sell the most wanted phone on the planet. By doing this, it almost bankrupted the company with a massive $20 billion dollar deal to secure the phone. Even though they had one of their strongest sales quarters in history with the i-phone, the company still lost $1.5 billion dollars in net profit. As T-Mobile watched the third largest carrier reap the benefits of gaining more customers, the fourth largest carrier choose a different path. T-Mobile decided to become a Samsung champion carrier. By doing that they carried the most Samsung phone models of any carrier, since Samsung is the largest cell phone manufacturer and the biggest Android phone supplier, which is the i-phones biggest competitor. By being a Samsung......

Cell Phones in It

...Cell Phones Technology in the country and around the world is expanding at an exponential pace. The last 10-15 years has seen a large increase for technology in everyday life. In the United States the biggest technological change is the use of cell phones in our lives for both personal and business use. Since the late 90’s cell phones have grown at a tremendous pace. Today there are very few people in the country that do not have one. Personal use of needing a cell phone has increased. Today we need to always have access to our phone for text messages, email or the old but common actual phone call. Before cell phones if you wanted to know where someone was you had to call a land line phone at their house or actually go to where they lived or worked, and this would take a lot of time out of your day either waiting or actually trying to track someone down. If you only needed to tell your spouse something simple like “pick up some milk.” Today people can just send a text message with that information and it is something you receive instantly. This has increased our connection with each other for personal use since we can talk or communicate with someone when and where we want. Cell phones in the business world have evolved even greater than personal use possibly over the same time period. When someone used to work before phones they could only receive calls or email while they were in the office. That could be a good thing, but if something needed to be done urgently or......

...Smartphone Innovations The cell phone has only been available to the consumer for a little over 30 years now. The invention was credited to a Dr. Martin Cooper. Dr. Cooper led the DynaTAC team at Motorola and placed the first cell phone call on April 3, 1973. The first phone was put on the market in October of 1983 and cost about $3,900 plus 50 cents a minute to talk. The phone was about 10 or 11 inches long, about 1 1/2 inches across, and about 4 inches deep. It weighed about 2 1/2 pounds. (Tas Anjarwalla). Cell phones are the most widely accepted consumer technology in the history of the world. According to a report published by Pew Research Center’s Internet & American Life Project, 91% of all adults living in the United States use a mobile phone. The acceptance of this technology is on the rise in the smartphone area as well. The same survey found that 56% of American adults have made the transition to a smartphones (Lee Rainie). Cell phones have made people’s lives easier, safer and more productive. The advantages related to this technology seem to be limitless. With the explosion into the smartphone era, the power of the computer has been placed into the palm of our hand. Access to the internet is now capable from almost from almost anywhere on earth. As the technology advances and the smartphone revolution continues to accelerate, the future innovations look to be impressive.

Pros and Cons to Vaccination in Children

...Jennifer Krahenbuhl English 102 Patricia McKeown September 1st 2014 Pros and Cons to Vaccinations in Children Almost everyone has heard of the benefits and dangers of childhood vaccines. Parents are especially eager to do what is best for their child to protect him or her. Some people have different opinions on what the best specifically entails when it comes to childhood vaccines. Vaccinations are a controversial discussion as parents question whether it should be mandatory or optional when they feel the cons outweigh the pros. The government says it is the right thing to do for parents and their families to remain safe from illnesses and diseases. However, there have been opinions of opposition voiced by parents and health advocates about whether or not it is worth the risk of being sick once vaccinated and whether these vaccinations actually work. The argument on both sides range from First Amendment right issues all the way to disabling health concerns. This essay will serve to examine and elaborate both the positive and negative perspectives on vaccinations in infants and children and why certain parents hesitate in vaccinating their children. The center of disease and control prevention(CDCP) claim there are five important vaccinations every child should receive. The chicken pox vaccine, measles, mumps, rubella (MMR) Vaccine, the Hepatitis vaccine, the haemophilus influenza type B(HIB) Vaccine, and pneumococcal conjugate vaccine. The chicken pox vaccine is......

Pros and Cons of Landline

...Pros & Cons of Cutting the Phone Line Other Things to Consider Pros: Cost: Most wire line phone companies charge more than what you'd pay for most alternatives, and they are taxed more as well. There are some locations where getting new wired phone service is prohibitively expensive or even impossible. Long Distance and extra features like Call Waiting are normally included with alternative phones. These calling features aren't regulated so they can be very pricey. More Features: Cellular and broadband phones normally include Long Distance, Voice Mail, Caller ID, Call Forwarding and more, usually at no additional charge. They also have Text Messaging and various forms of data service which are unavailable with most landlines. Portability: If you move your home more than average (or if it's on wheels), your phone and your number can stay with you. There are no "installation" charges. Temporary Usage: You can have phone service for the season in a vacation home or cabin or on an extended stay at a hotel or home of a friend or relative without installing a separate line. Fewer Telemarketers: Nuisance calls are reduced because telemarketers want to target customers in certain geographic areas. With cellular and broadband phones they won't know where you are. Most Telco’s provide your landline number to telemarketers. With cellular it's illegal...for now. With broadband, it depends on the carrier who sets up your number. Internet Access: Your......

Cell Phones

...CELL PHONES AND SOCIALIZATION Shawn Powell Strayer University ABSTRACT Cellular phones have come a long way from the exclusive use for important people. Now, the use of cell phones has gone global. People across the global can be seen using cell phones in many ways that fit their life style. This wireless device is used by both the young and the old. The use is a combination of fashion, work and social outlet. Socialization has linked its existence to the invention of the cell phone. CELL PHONES AND SOCIALIZATION The world as we know it has become technology depended on a hand held device called the cellular phone. Martin Cooper was the person who invented the first handheld cellular device in April, 1973. Ever since, the cellular device now commonly known as a cell phone has taken off to a level no one knew it could reach. Today, cell phones have grown to be a new way of everyday life. Additionally, cell phone usage has fallen into the number one category on the charts in the area of mobile communication and/or social interaction as it has multiple uses such as text messaging and surfing the internet. Cell phone conversations take place in public places causing people to interact whether it is for business or pleasure therefore maintaining the balance of social support (Khattab, 2009). However, questions have also been raised as to whether it is proper behavior depending on where a cell phone is being used (Khattab, 2009). Not only are people highly depended......

Pros and Cons

...Pros More coverage. Coverage will expand to cover nearly 95 percent of legal U.S. residents. With a recent study showing that patients without health insurance have a shorter life span, coupled with the number of uninsured approaching 50 million in 2010, that is perhaps the biggest reason to cheer. A more competitive insurance industry. Increased regulation will stop insurance companies from rigging prices–that recent 40% insurance premium increase in California comes to mind. Competition with newly formed public entities will ideally make the entire industry more competitive. Also, insurance companies are now required to post their balance sheets, executive compensation, and administrative costs online. Insurance companies will have to accept everyone. No more pre-existing condition exclusions. They can’t place limits on coverage anymore, either. Cheaper prescriptions for seniors. It’s reform. We need reform. We’re in a situation where healthcare is even becoming unaffordable to employers, leaving employees with higher out-of-pocket expenses even if they’re ensured. Healthcare costs have jettisoned innumerable people from the middle class. People get sick and die because insurers won’t take them. This isn’t functional. Any kind of reform helps. Cons Cuts in Medicare. The elderly on Medicare will see their benefits changed dramatically. The biggest item being used to pay for the new program is more than $500 billion in cuts to the program at a time when......

Cell Phones and Their Service Providers

...much controversy in concern to cell phones and the service providers they come with. This paper is to show the pros and cons of various companies. The top three service providers are Verizon, AT&T, and Straight Talk. Verizon is the biggest service provider around for now. The reason being that they have the best towers, or so people thought. Verizon hasn’t upgraded all of their towers to 4G LTE yet. Most of them are still running 3G towers. Their prices are ridiculously expensive and that’s where most people have their biggest issue with Verizon. Unlike Verizon, AT&T isn’t that sought after. Everyone assumes that since AT&T’s service wasn’t all that great a few years back that it still isn’t, but they are gaining more and more coverage. Most of their towers have been upgraded to 4G LTE so 3G on their network is virtually non-existent. The only issue is that their network will only work in certain areas, like if you live in the country you won’t get a signal. The good thing is that AT&T isn’t that expensive. Straight Talk runs off of both Verizon and AT&T towers. Straight Talk is a great, affordable company and it has a phone that meets everyone’s needs. If you’re out in the country then you will need a phone that runs off Verizon towers, but in the city you can go with AT&T towers or Verizon towers. Since it runs off of both you can have a phone that runs a 4G LTE network and one that runs a 3G network. Every company has its pros and cons, but the decision of which......

...Ariana Galindo Mrs. Sgarioto English 1100-400 9 December 2009 The Invisible Killer What if one were to tell you that your cell phone is slowly killing you every time you use it? Cell phones are a part of everyday life for many people across the world. To many their cell phone is considered the most important item they own. People use cell phones everyday for simple tasks. One example is going to the grocery store, when a person forgets what they were supposed to get for mom they simply call her and ask. Imagine thirty years ago? People could never do something like that. Society today relies a great deal on cell phones and their features, but do not realize the potential danger they are putting their health in. Many people around the world use cell phones every day but are unaware of the fatal outcomes linked to them. To understand how potentially harmful cell phones are society must consider the many people using them. There are three billion cell phone users worldwide and more than 260 million in the United States alone (Mead 422). It is shocking that so many people around the world and U.S are cell phone users and they all may not know how harmful cell phones can be. It is important to discover how this technology of cell phones was created and developed in order to look into how it is affecting humans. In 1974, in response to growing demand for a communication system that was more convenient than two- way radios, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC)......

History of the Cell Phone

...Technology is the Birth of the Cellular Phone. There are now more wireless devices in use in the United States than there are people. Americans have doubled the amount of Internet data traffic they generate on smartphones, according to the trade group CTIA. The number of mobile devices rose 9 percent in the first six months of 2011 to 327.6 million — more than the 315 million people living in the U.S., Puerto Rico, Guam and the U.S. Virgin Islands. Wireless network data traffic rose 111 percent to 341.2 billion megabytes, during the same period (According to "Number of Cellphones Exceeds U.S. Population: Ctia Trade Group" (2011). Often dismissed in this age of technology is the birth of the cellular phone. Who is accredited with the invention of the cellular phone? Have you ever looked at your cell phone and thought, “HMM I wonder who thought of this?” Hundreds of thousands of people have wondered that very question. Sure several people thought of the idea of being able to walk around with a phone to their ear while they were out shopping, or stranded on the side of the road out of gas, or had a flat tire. There were several companies working on cellular technology at the same time. ”While the technology had been developed, it was not until 1971 that AT&T submitted a request to the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) for cellular service. It took more than 10 years for an approval ("Martin Cooper - History of Cell Phone", 2012).” Dr. Martin Cooper, who is......

Cell Phones

...Today, cell phones have become a necessity rather than a luxury. The history of the cell phone can be traced back to the early ’40s. It was then that police, taxi cabs and other vehicle services began to use two way radios to communicate with one another or a central base. The first “mobile phone” was used by Swedish police in 1947. The technology was limited and drained the car battery after only 6 calls. The technology that we use today, that is towers that send signals in three directions instead of two like a bi-directional antennae, was developed in the 1960s; however, it took decades to mature into the system that we now know and use every day. AT&T petitioned the FCC for a license to use “Cellular Service,” but it was not until 10 years later in 1982 that the request was granted. The “First Generation” cell phones were bulky, weighed several pounds and had a short battery life. This meant they could only be used with any practicality in cars. The first true mobile cell phone was introduced by Motorola in 1983. Weighing in at only 28 ounces, it was light weight. The phone became known as “The Brick Phone” because of its square dimensions. Throughout the ’80s mobile phones grew in popularity, largely due to the fast improvements that were being invented which allowed the phones to become smaller and more powerful. Throughout the ’90s and into the new millennium, cell phones quickly became so common that now almost every adult and most teenagers have one. While......
