Othello Analysis

1.3.208-218 Paraphrase: Desdemona: My dear father, I do face a difficult challenge: To you I am grateful for life and my education; My life and education have helped me immensely I do respect you; you are the one I look up to; Of course, I am your daughter: but there is also my husband, And just as my mother showed […]

Impacts of Nurture on Development

In reference to human behavior, the impact of nature versus nurture can be examined by twin studies which have increased over previous years as it is shown that “For traits that are substantially influenced by heredity, the approximately two-fold difference in genetic similarity between the two types of twins should outweigh any complications”(Monitor On Psychology), says John Hewitt, PhD, director […]

Exploring Nature Via Nurture

Countering this argument, there has been countless studies that oppose the findings of nature and nurture being separate entities. The discovery of how genes actually influence human behaviour, and how human behaviour influences genes, has transformed the debate entirely. No longer is it nature versus nurture, but nature via nurture. Genes are designed to take their cues from nurture. To […]

Nurture From the Start

There is a lot that can be discovered with monozygotic twins, specifically when they are separated at birth and reunited later in life. A study from a pair of twins who had been rejoined found staggering observations as they compared notes from their childhood. In fact, they both “suffered from tension headaches, were prone to nail biting, smoked Salem cigarettes, […]

This means that the twins have already produced several differences from the time the egg split. The formal term for this occurrence is epigenetics, […]

Smog Lake City

As I drive into the “fog” of the valley from the mountains, the temperature drops and I feel like I have to cough. We have red air days in Salt Lake City. Being one of the fastest growing cities in the country comes at a large cost. Bad air quality negatively impacts the livelihood of Utahns between the months of […]

Reading Into Empathy

People each day are becoming more complacent about important issues in society. There is a lack of people willing to interrupt their own busy day to help others in need. Those who fail to have sympathy for others ultimately ignore the possibility that one day it could be herself in such a predicament. Therefore, people need to find courage and […]

From Passion to Product

I would like to learn about my passions, and how they have shaped me. I think back to a time when I would click my poles and put them over the wand until I heard a beep, then push off through the gate. Ski racing fueled an adrenaline rush. I spent most of my time on snow as a freshman […]

From Makeup to Mini Me’s

In this article, there is the idea that Mendel’s study was successful in determining the chances of getting a parent’s hair and eye color, and simple diseases; however, it was found that although children’s genes look identical to their parents, their bodies and minds could differ. For example, young adults are “influenced by many other factors, including the portions of […]
