Activity 9

Activity 11

Activity 13

Activity 16

Activity 17

Please let me know if you understand. Thanks I know its a lot to ask, but I do appreciate your help.

Greta,

I understand what you have to do, but this assignment requires a huge amount of text annotation and highlighting. This is all about facts, questioning facts, and presentation. Do you submit these answers online, or do you hand in hard copies to your teacher?

Jill

hand in hard copies,

Activity 11

Claims:

"It has promised to produce nine cloned kittens by November."

Says who?

____________________________________________________________

"Studies show that a quarter of the 60 million pet-owning households would consider cloning their furry friends, he says. Genetic Savings hopes to be cloning thousands of pets annually in five years, when the cost should be down to $10,000 for cats,$20,000 for dogs, he says."

Where are the studies and results?

_____________________________________________________________

"Unlike the fictional RePet, his company will produce unique, newborn animals, not full-grown exact replicas, he said. A cloned animal will have its own personality and memories. It will closely resemble the original animal in physical appearance and behavioral tendencies."

Studies and proof?

______________________________________________________________

"The company says it will never experiment with human cloning."

Proof, who says?

_______________________________________________________________

1. Differences between clone and the original

"Unlike the fictional RePet, his company will produce unique, newborn animals, not full-grown exact replicas, he said. A cloned animal will have its own

personality and memories. It will closely resemble the original animal in physical appearance and behavioral tendencies."

2. Arguments in favor of cloning (who makes these)

"He pointed to some potential benefits for society: cloning working animals, such as seeing-eye dogs and search-and-rescue dogs."

"...Hawthorne, 43, a Princeton grad and former multimedia producer."

3. Arguments against cloning (who makes these)

"The people who want this are spending huge sums of money to get their pet immortalized or to guarantee they're getting a pet exactly like the one they had before, and it's simply not possible," Magnus said."

Arguments made by David Magnus, co-director of the Center for Biomedical Ethics at Stanford University.

Will you be able to do all the activities I asked for help? Do you want me to list each activity once again?

I will help you with what I can.... these activities cannot be done quickly, and I need to watch for other questions to come in. I will look at the other activities and check out the text further.

ok, thank you so very much.
