The Right to Die for Patients in a Minimally Conscious State: A Review of the Decision in W v. M

Chrispas Nyombi
The right to die has been subject to increased media attention in recent years due to a surge in cases in which courts are required to make decisions on whether to approve the right to die or deny it. Courts have been very consistent in denying terminally ill patients the right to end their suffering through assisted suicide. This paper examines the court decision in W v. M (2011) on the right to die for patients in...

A Critical Evaluation of Factors Related to the Recent Outbreak of Bordetella Pertussis in Children in the USA

Ayowumi Ogunjobi
The recent outbreak of Bordetella Pertussis in the US confirms that the infection is still very much endemic in the country. Outbreaks were recorded despite rates of immunization at more than 80% among the population. While it could be argued that declining immunity is a contributory factor to the increase in the incidence of pertussis, evidence suggests that the cause is not a singular issue. High incidence of pertussis can therefore be seen as multi-factorial,...

Committing White-collar Crime: What Organisational Mechanisms Exist to Ensure Accountability? Can this Profession still be relied on to Regulate Itself?

David Church
This article studies the relationship between the intangible qualities of accountability and the hidden nature of white-collar criminality in the accounting profession. I will argue that the lack of definable accountability mechanisms and the poor public awareness of white-collar crime directly affect the transparency and likelihood of corporate wrongdoing. As the ambiguities of accountability traits rely on the complexities of organisational structures and cultures, crimes can often be concealed. In a modern context the connection between individual and collective rights and responsibilities is important due to the...

Beautiful Experiments: Newton’s Decomposition of Sunlight

Virginia Cain
Robert P. Crease, a member of the philosophy department at the State University of New York, at Stony Brook and the historian at Brookhaven National Laboratory, recently asked physicists to nominate the most beautiful experiment of all time (2002). I have chosen to write about Newton’s decomposition of sunlight with a prism because it is one I find inspiring and interesting. There is meaning attached to the experiment, and one’s definition of beautiful can be...

An assessment of the differences in linguistic nature of patients with Broca's and Wernicke's aphasia

Emma Willis
Aphasia is a disorder of language and speech caused by a brain lesion. After the lesion, usually caused by an accident or stroke, the patient typically has some residual language left, indicating that knowledge of language can be selectively impaired by the location of the lesion. The linguistic properties of words and morphemes lost by aphasics are explored in this assessment, as well as the differences in speech production and comprehension between those who have...

Initiation into Adulthood and Old Age: The Journeys of Telemachus and Odysseus

Frazer Merritt
The journeys of Telemachus and Odysseus in The Odyssey portray the two most significant experiences in a man's life—the transformation from a boy to a man after adolescence, and the movement from the accomplishments of middle age into the second half of life and old age. Athena functions as an anima inspiratrix who launches Telemachus on his task of discovering his masculine identity by searching for his absent father. A young man's potential must be seen by other men,...

Why is it often said that Natural Resources are a Curse?

Maximilien von Berg
The resource curse theory is one of the long-standing pillars in political economy associating resources and democratic development. Though it is well established that many resource-rich countries are poor and undemocratic, this paper seeks to reassess the resource curse literature in light of more recent publications and developments. This paper claims the causal link made between resources and the lack of democratic and economic development is simplistic and incomplete. Using a variety of case-studies and...
