Appendix B Final Exam Access the Electronic Reserve Readings link on your student Web site for Week Nine. Select one of the topics below and read both articles that present opposing sides of the argument surrounding that topic. o Animal experimentation o Outsourcing o Media violence Answer the following questions in paragraphs of approximately 100 words demonstrating your critical and creative thinking skills. 1. Identify if the topic you chose, as presented by both articles, is a problem or an issue and explain what makes it a problem or an issue. If you believe the articles present both problems and issues, identify and explain what the problems are and what the issues are. I believe this topic is definitely an issue. Both sides of the argument have creditable information to back them up, but neither party can completely discredit the other. Animal experimentation has helped to cure and completely eliminate diseases around the world. On the other hand, defenseless animals are subject to many testes and experiments without the guarantee of seeing positive results. The article opposed to animal testing may be slightly biased. There was not a single mention on how animal testing helped treat, cure, and prevent diseases that plagued humanity. The opposition presented their case as a problem; whereas, the other side presented their case as an issue. 2. Were the problems or issues expressed effectively? Describe how the problems or issues were or were not best expressed. Most of the issues were expressed effectively except for the statists on how much animal testing has helped to free humanity of disease. The argument advocating animal testing did not mention that most of the vaccines developed were for diseases that had little effect on the current human population. I also noticed that argument advocating animal testing did not give any credit to increased sanitation, higher standards of living, healthier diets, and increased hygiene as a possible reason for less disease outbreaks. The argument against animal testing said that many experiments are extremely costly and so not benefit anyone. I find this hard to believe because if there was no possible benefit researchers would not be wasting their time doing it in the first place. There must be some sort of possible gain for the research to take place. HUM/111
