Home Life: Making it sweet and secure again

This article attempts to confront one of today's most challenging questions--what has happened to home life? You may be shocked to learn how price manipulation plays a strong role in the deconstruction of family living. I think that anyone who is raising a family today (or desires to) will find this narrative important and interesting to their tomorrows to come.

The young virgin of the 3rd century, Philomena, carried a following for centuries among devout Catholics.  But, was this 13-year-old saint real?  Or, was she the construct of an overly devoted  early 19th-century Neapolitan nun, Sister Maria Luisa di Gesu?

Lost Treasure of the Nazis: Russia's Amber Room

One of the lesser-considered outrages committed by the Nazis during World War II was the confiscation of cultural artifacts from plundering.  Among these great works of stolen art were many that were stashed away and never recovered.  Others were destroyed, either inadvertently or intentionally.  Russia's Amber Room-literally an entire showcase space made almost entirely of amber-was one such great work that was taken and then lost by the Nazis after their failed invasion of Russia.

Extended Project Example: Ethics And Science

Already, genetic engineering has sparked much controversy as debates rage on whether it is safe to modify the genetic information of living organisms or whether funding should be put into this research or used for something else. New developments in the genetics field has created even more controversy as to if we should use these new techniques despite the fact it will impact individual lives or even the whole society. On the one hand, procedures such as these can potentially save the lives of individuals born with genetic defects or even prevent babies with such defects from being born. These new developments range from being used for cosmetic reasons to designing the appearance of one's own child to aiding infertile adults who want their own blood-related children. With benefits such as these, however great they may be must always be weighed against the consequences. It must be asked if parents have the right to use technology which gives their child specified characteristics at birth or in the case of "savior siblings" have another baby to provide tissues/cells which can cure an already sick child. In this level 3 Edexcel extended project I looked into the field of genetics, focusing specifically on recent advancements in its technology its implications for the future. The project eventually achieved grade A and was 1 point away from an A*. This article will exclude the abstract and evaluation.

Elephant Man, Joseph Carey Merrick

Joseph Carey Merrick lived his life in Victorian England as a "human novelty exhibit".  As the infamous "Elephant Man" Merrick's grotesque appearance was sufficent to incite public outrage; he made women faint at the sight of him.  Beneath his hideous deformities, however, lay the spirit of a sensitive, albeit wounded soul, with intelligence and respect for other living things, including those who'd wronged him.

Christina, Hermaphrodite Queen of Sweden?

The mannish 17th century queen of Sweden, Christina, was anomolous in her day. Preferring men's clothing, engaging in manly pursuits, and a scholar, she also abdicated to pursue an interest in Catholicism (illegal in Sweden then). Her androgynous appearance, attachments to at least one woman, and failed "love" interests in men have led many to believe she may have been a hermaphrodite.
