Outline with Thesis Statement Tort Law 11/29/2010 Sherman’s v. Church of the Divine Light Thesis statement: This case of the Shermans v. Church of the Divine Light. According the case, the Shermans claim that their minor child has been the victim of illegal detention and intentional infliction of emotional distress and among other torts. They seek to be compensated for all the damages that such detention have brought to their minor child as well as the medical and other expenses they incurred in getting him away from the church and “bringing him” from their intentional “brainwashing” of their minor child.
Her mother, who converted to Christian Science, had passed down the religion to her daughter, who is now a firm supporter for exemption from health care. However, an opposing view from Kristen A. Feemster, “‘Parents may be free to become martyrs themselves, but it does not follow they are free … to make martyrs of their children,’ the Supreme Court ruled in 1944.” This can be seen in Howell’s example of her mother’s miracle and her new passed on religion to her children. While it was not forced upon Howell to believe in Christian Science, her mother passed down her mindset of miracles being able to happen if she prayed for God’s help. These parents are able to believe in various aspects in religion; however, this does not mean they should strongly enforce that their children to be well versed in their parents’ beliefs when they have so little knowledge about their parent’s religious beliefs and the rest of the world’s beliefs.

Causation Although the defendant said that the victim could not refuse the transfusion and the chain of causation could be broken, as her act was unreasonable, the court held that Blaue was still responsible given that the victim was entitled to have certain religious beliefs.
Neurofibromatosis Neurofibromatosis is a disorder affecting the chromosomes of the human body. It is a hereditary disorder affecting the nervous system. The term neurofibromatosis actually refers to two different genetic diseases. The most common type is NF 1, and the less common type is NF 2. Both
Neurofibromatosis My disorder research paper is about neurofibromatosis, which is a genetically-inherited disorder in which the nerve tissue grows tumors that may cause serious damage by compressing nerves and other tissues. The disorder affects all neural cells such as the Schwann cells and melanocytes. The melanocytes function abnormally in this disease, resulting to disordered skin pigmentation. The tumors would be able to cause bumps under the skin, colored spots, skeletal problems, and other neurological problems. Neurofibromatosis is also an autosomal dominant disorder, which means that only one copy of the affected gene is needed for the disorder to develop. In this case if there were only one parent who has neurofibromatosis,

Understanding Neurofibromatosis Neurofibromatosis affects about 100,000 Americans. This disease can affect all ages, sexes, and ethnic groups. Neurofibromatosis is a nervous disorder that causes tumors inside and outside of the body. According to Norris M. Haynes (2011), Some individuals may only have mild skin lesions, and others may have more physically disfiguring tumors and life threatening complications. The chance of having this neurofibromatosis is a large concern to the patient and family, which is why it's important to understand the disorder. The three main factors of understanding what neurofibromatosis is, are signs and symptoms, causes and diagnosis, and treatments for the disease.
Neurofibromatosis is a genetic neurological disorder that can affect the brain, spinal cord, nerves, and skin. There have been two types of neurofibromatosis classified. Type one is more common and is formerly known as von Recklinghausen's neurofibromatosis. Symptoms for type one include: café-au-lait, two or more neurofibromas,manifestation of freckles, lisch nodules, optic glioma, scoliosis, or enlargement or malformation of other bones in the skeletal system. Café-au-lait is the presence of light brown spots on the skin. Neurofibromas are pea-sized bumps that grow on nerve tissue or under the skin. Lisch nodules are tiny tan clumps of pigment in the iris of the eyes. Optic glioma are tumors that are along the optic nerve of the eye. Scoliosis is the severe curvature of the spine.
Priority is to make sure the child is in a safe and comfortable environment, one that will meet the physical and emotional needs of them and next is to change the relationship between the child and the caregiver. However, I find it difficult to understand if a child is in a situation severe enough to inflict that type of emotional damage on them, who is paying enough attention to know there is a problem to begin with? So now we have a family in therapy trying to get to the root of the problem, to understand why the primary caregiver shows no emotion towards the child. The child must essentially be reprogrammed in hopes of being able to function more normally, but what lasting damage is already done. If they don’t show any signs of success towards recovering from RAD, what happens then? Unfortunately, society also suffers from emotionally traumatized
Neurofibromatosis(NF) is describe as a nervous system disorder that can affect many different organs in the body; which generally includes the (skin, nerves, brain and spinal cord) as a result of tumor growth on the nerve tissues. This disorder can pass on from parent to child if one of

Description: Neurofibromatosis is one genetic disorder that causes tumors to form on nerve tissues in the body. The most common places that they have formed are the brain, spinal cord, and nerves, but can be found anywhere in the nervous system. As neurofibromatosis is usually diagnosed during childhood or early adulthood, tumors usually are noncancerous, but over time can become cancerous. The symptoms are usually mild, but getting looked at right away to have a healthy growth and development will make everything go smoother. Since there are tumors pushing against nerves, surgery is usually the best fit in order to get rid of the tumor and to start living a healthy life (Mayo Clinic, 2016). This genetic disorder involves one in every 4000
Neurofibromatosis is a genetic disorder which can cause tumors to grow on nerve tissue. The tumors develop in a patient’s brain, spinal cord and pretty much anywhere in the nervous system. There are three types of neurofibromatosis which all have different signs and symptoms. The first, neurofibromatosis 1 shows up with small flat brown spots on the skin, freckling in the arm pit or groin area, bone deformities, tumors on the optic nerve, tiny bumps on the iris of the eye and possible learning disabilities. Neurofibromatosis 2 is not as common as 1 and the symptom is usually slow growth of benign tumors in both ears. These tumors grow on the nerve that carries balance and sound to the brain. Signs are gradual hearing loss, headaches, ringing
