Moral Obligation for Society to Provide Health Care

Is there a moral obligation for society to provide adequate access to health care for all its citizens? There is a need to improve Health Care in America using moral and ethical theories.

Plight of Refugees

This shows the plight of the Afghan Refugees from Pakistan and other areas. The situation is truly sad and the pictures are a MUST see!

India launches ballistic missile

India has test-fired its longest-range nuclear-capable ballistic missile, Agni-III, officials said.

The surface-to-surface missile was test-fired off the coast of Orissa state in eastern India.

With a range of more than 3,000km (1,865 miles), the missile could hit targets as far off as Beijing and Shanghai, analysts say.

The Agni-III is India's most sophisticated long-range missile. It was successfully test-fired last year.

Indian defence spokesman Group Captain Ramesh Kumar Das said the latest test was launched from the interim test range at the Wheeler's Island in the Bay of Bengal.

The intermediate range ballistic missile is capable of carrying a 1.5-tonne nuclear payload.

When deployed, it will boost India's second-strike capability as it can be launched from anywhere using a mobile launcher.

It will need a few more tests before it can be inducted into the armed forces, Group Captain Das said.

Possession of the Agni-III will give India deep strike capability because it would have Chinese cities like Beijing and Shanghai and the US island base of Diego Garcia in the Indian Ocean well within its striking range.

The Agni-II missile, already tested and deployed, has a range of 2,000km (1,243 miles).

The Agni-1 has a range of 750km (466 miles).

The Agni (literally "fire" in Hindi and Sanskrit) missile family is believed to be the mainstay of the Indian missile-based strategic nuclear deterrence, Group Captain Das said.

He said the Agni family would continue to expand its stable, providing a breadth of payload and range capabilities.

Latin American History

An Interesting critical analysis of the Latin American Society.


"What aspects of Iberian society were transferred to the New World?

The distinctive features of Iberian societies became part of their American culture. They were heavily urban; many peasants lived in small centers. Commoners coming to America sought to become nobles holding Indian-worked estates. Strong patriarchal ideas were reflected in the family life, which was based on encomiendas, large estates worked by Indians."

While at level 0 you are able to reallocate the skill-points distribution, but once you get to level 1 your selections are permanent.
