In, “Dog Lab”, Claire McCarthy is a student as Harvard Medical School. She is strong willed with a drive to become the best doctor. Upon hearing about a “dog lab”, she became interested in what the lab had to offer. During class one day the professor introduced the lab, in which students were required to perform an operation on a living dog. This shocked McCarthy in the sense it would require her to go against her morals. This would teach her a Signiant life lesson of having to do something against you believe in for the betterment of something. McCarthy explains “The lab took all day. We cut through the dog’s skin to find an artery and vein, into which we placed catheters. We injected different drugs and chemicals and watched what happened

In these dangerous moments, anybody would have gone mad, have deserted their post, or have fallen. it takes a special kind of soldier -- a soldier who will not go to pieces at the sight of a mutilated body -- to deal with this emotional abuse; it takes a soldier like Baumer.

“On Dumpster Diving” by Lars Eighner the author starts his piece by saying what dumpsters mean to himself, other people and hobos. Then he goes on telling his story of when he began Dumpster diving. He mentions that he prefers to call it scavenging rather than dumpster diving because he lacks the ability of lowering himself into the dumpsters. Eighner savings ran out and he put all his income into rent. To get all his life necessities he turn to the dumpsters to get everything he needed except for jeans. After saying that he goes on talking about “What is safe to eat?” (Eighner). He says that they use senses and common sense to evaluate the found material. Later he mentions the types of foods he tries to avoid and the one they consider safe. The dumpster they love to go scavenging is the ones from colleges, because the students throw away many valuable things and food. After that the author talks about the stages a person goes through when they are learning to scavenge. First they are shy and disgust, but later after finding things they began liking it; the shyness starts going away, but some could end up being psycho. They start believing that all glass is silver and all glister stuff is gold. Later, he says how they gain weight because of the type of food they mostly find. After, he says that they could find really interesting stuff and lots of information in a household trashcan, but they try not to judge the person by the things they find in
When it comes to the topic of growing up, majority of people will say that growing up is all about making mistakes and learning from them, but can standing up for something you believe in be considered a mistake? A & P by John Updike is short story about the protagonist growing up. The story is narrated by Sammy, who makes a decision to quit his job. Sammy, an employee at A & P, encounters three girls shopping in the store in bikinis. The manager of the store, Lengel, confronts the girls about their attire and Sammy quits his job shortly after. Sammy had been watching the three girls as he worked, and although they say the basis of Sammy’s decision to quit his job was due to the three girls in bikinis, I think the basis of his decision was much deeper than that. Although it appears that Sammy made a rash decision to quit his job because he wanted to be a hero to the three girls embarrassed by his manager, my view is that Sammy used the three girls as an excuse to quit his job because the behavior of the three girls reminded him that he no longer wanted to be a part of the social norm.
What is the right thing to do? This is often a simple yet very challenging question for people to answer. On the topic of lying, is it okay to do it in certain situations and not in others, or should you always tell the truth? There is never one right answer for this question. One of the most common situations presented is this: Imagine you are on a cruise and the captain announces that the ship is sinking and everyone needs to load onto life rafts. The only issue is that there are 11 people and the life raft only fits 10. You have the choice of kicking one person off the boat and the remaining 10 people live or fit all 11 people on the boat with the chances of everyone drowning before the rescue boat shows up. In this essay I will present both the result-oriented and act-oriented approaches to ethics and how each would react in the situation presented.
Our plan is to find the safest and most neutral decision. As a company, we have a due diligence to watch out for the interests of our customers, but also our government or rather the safety of our country. We will implement the change that the government has requested, however, we will disclose the details of their requirements to the customers. This situation has become violent and we are obligated ethically to help prevent it. We will shut down service in selected areas as the government has requested, however, we will not send out propaganda in favor of the government. The shutting down of certain areas is an attempt to increase the safety of this country, however we will not take any part in influencing the minds of our customers
