What is (CHIP)? In this paper I will be looking at the history of the CHIP program from legislation to the current state. I will also look at who originally proposed the CHIP program. Was the program under a different name? What year was the CHIP program proposed to Congress? Who was the CHIP program designed to serve, has this changed throughout the course of time? What challenges did Congress face in implementing the CHIP program? What changes/improvements have been made to the CHIP program since implementation?
The article is about Devlin Perez signing with the St. Louis Cardinals in July. There were not many similarities between Chip Scanlan’s article and mine. Scanlan’s article is strictly about an obituary because he states that you need to have the name of the deceased, and survivors. Obviously a baseball draft is not going to have a name of a deceased person or any survivors but there are some similarities. Some of the similarities are the names. Even though, the obituary wants a name of the deceased it is still a name and the draft article has the name of the team and of the athlete being drafted. Another similarity is the address; the draft article doesn’t say his address but they do say what country he is from. The background of the team is
If people really want a dog that is considered purebred, kennel clubs like the AKC need to change standards for dog breeds to encourage healthy dogs, but the only way that is going to happen is if their is a public push for it. It has happened before. In 2008, a documentary called Purebred Dogs Exposed was televised in Great Britain. It was critical of the Kennel Club, the British equivalent of the AKC, and showed purebreds with a range of health problems. The documentary showed that the 2003 champion of the country’s most prestigious dog show, Crufts, was a Pekingese who had to be photographed sitting on ice blocks because his flat face made his breed so prone to overheating. The film also showed pictures of certain breeds in the early 20th century compared to pictures of the same breeds today, showing how selective breeding had changed the dogs in the past century. For example, it showed the lengthened the back of the dachshund, rounded the skull of the bull terrier, and the almost frog-like stance of the german sheperd. According to the documentary, vererinary fees for purebred dogs were costing British owners 10 million pounds a week. “In response to the documentary, the Kennel Club commissioned an independent study led by Cambridge University professor emeritus Sir Patrick Bateson. The resulting report largely confirmed the documentary’s findings, which concluded that inbreeding, selecting for extreme characteristics, and the practices of mass breeding facilities known as puppy mills were negatively impacting dog welfare” (The Purebred Paradox Part 2). Since then, Britain’s Kennel Club
The Bodily Integrity Act prevents any agency from using it’s power to chip anyone against their will. The Act gives people the property rights to their own bodies and ensures the right to privacy of their bodies.
Most women have something about their face that they don't like and make-up is supposed to help but certain make-up techniques like eyebrow lining can get in the way and make doing normal things like swimming impractical. If you've ever wished you had Brooke Shields' eyebrows or Cara Delevingne's perfect set then you'll be glad to know that there is a tattoo technique that can help you achieve that dream. It is called microbladding.
•The chip can be used to make purchases, open doors, login to computers, and track employee breaks. So as you see it can help a lot with daily life. (Merrit Kennedy, Wisconsin Company Offers To Implant Chips In Its Employees)
With the popularity of DIY party decorating on the rise, it’s handy to know how to make paper mache like a boss. When we speak of paper mache and parties, the project that comes to mind is the ever-popular pinata. While a candy filled orb floating in the sky is exciting enough, the uses of paper mache reach much further.
A microchip is a very small computer chip with an identification number programmed into it by the manufacturer. They are normally placed in the dog through the use of hypodermic needle. You can always be assured that the chip will not be altered or removed by any way. The pet’s body will naturally form a layer of connective tissues around that chip thereby protecting it.
Microneedles (MNs) were first proposed by Gerstel and Place in a patent as method of percutaneous drug delivery through a number of projections. (Gerstel and Place, 1976). Although it wasn’t possible to make such devices until the 1990’s with the development of microfabrication of technologies with the first paper demonstrating the use of MNs for transdermal drug delivery in 1998 (Henry et al. 1998). MNs consist of an array of micro-projections of different shapes, ranging from 25- 2000um in height all attached to a base. (Donnelly, Singh & Woolfson 2010). Although much research has been done in to the use of MNs for non invasive drug delivery (Donnelly, Singh & Woolfson 2010, Prausnitz 2004, Li et al. 2013, Donnelly et al. 2012). it has also been shown that MNs can be used for the withdrawal of bodily fluid (Wang, Cornwell & Prausnitz 2005, Mukerjee et al. 2004) for analysis which is the purpose of this project. It is possible that micro needles could be used for measuring blood glucose levels in diabetic patients. It was shown that MNs were capable of removing interstitial fluid for in situ detection of glucose (Mukerjee et al. 2004).
Some questions that everyone must ask about the microchip implants is, how will this technology be implemented? Will it be mandatory or a choice? Who will be in control of the device? And is it a medically sound device? The answer to the first question is a two part answer the first part being that the RFID chip is not a new concept the implementation of this device has already begun. People should be made aware that for a number of years now they have been getting the public acclimated to the idea of the microchip implants in ways such as offering them as a means to track lost pets and wandering livestock so first and foremost the primary use of the device is to track. They have since moved on to other means of utilizing the chip, they are now slowly rolling out credit and debit cards that contain the RFID chip technology, which controls the access to your funds so as said before the concept is not new it has been a work in progress.
In recent years, the field of biomedical engineering has been growing and gaining significant importance all across the world. Scientists have been striving to find cures to some of the most potent diseases of this modern world and looking to find methods of assisting the many people struggling with various types of disabilities. A newly rising technology in biomedical engineering is the Human Body on a Chip, or Organ on a Chip. The Organ on a Chip is a multi-channel 3-D microfluidic cell culture chip that stimulates the activities, mechanics and physiological responses of entire organs and organ systems. At first glace these chips don’t look like anything more than very thin pieces of plastic, but when filled with cells from
It used to be a time where animals were loved and well cared for. Nowadays the problem of stray dogs is serious issue. One can see it everywhere in the Baton Rouge area. According to the Louisiana SPCA, “locally there estimated two hundred seventy five thousand unwanted and homeless animals of which approximately twenty percent are stray” (SPCA). Some of them were dropped off by people; others were born and grew up in the streets. The growing numbers of stray dogs in Baton Rouge instilled a natural fear in people, who are ready to give the green light on any and all steps to be taken by authorities through the restriction of stray dogs’ number. Sterilization is basically spaying of females and surgical castration of male dogs so that they
If it is not for microchips, the problem of pet negligence would be even greater than it is at the present moment. A microchip can also help to reunite lost pets back to their owners. It carries a number, and this number is plugged into a database that includes the name and contact information of a pet's owner. It is close to impossible for a dog-napper to remove a microchip and therefore microchips eliminate such an action as well. Pet-owners tend to have concerns of infections and excessive bleeding when it comes to microchip implantation. However, if the microchip is implanted using professional techniques, such risks would be negligible.
