I selected this topic because I believe that stem cell research will greatly improve modern medicine. Through stem cells, we will at one point be able to cure almost any disease or rehabilitate any injury. This topic is based mostly
upon biology, namely biotechnology. An organization that supports this would be Stemgent, a provider of stem cell information, alongside stem cell material for scientists to purchase and study. The most difficult aspect of conveying this image, was to find an evocative image, that would convince my audience that research on stem cells is necessary to help people with their physical disabilities and diseases.

Music is just like time, always changing and moving forward. From classical music to disco to electronic, music never stops to develop and manifest itself in different ways. Nowadays, music has taken a darker turn to the more seedier aspects of human indulgences. We constantly nowadays, see references to drugs, alcohol, and the subjugation of women, rampant in multiple musical genres. Usually, this would not be an issue, but as music has become increasingly easier to acquire, the youth of our age listen to music much more frequently. The high amounts of exposure to this risque music is seen to give off a negative influence to teenagers.
One of the most negative influences of music, are that of underage, unprotected sex. Music today, in most cases rap, casually talk about performing sexual acts upon women, as well as being a misogynist in general. The question arises; how does this affect the youth? According to Livestrong.com, “The United States has the highest teen pregnancy rate in the industrialized world. The Center for Disease Control says that one-third of girls get pregnant before the age of 20.” That means that, of all the women that have gotten pregnant, 30 percent of them were in the target age for music producers. The message delivered in the lyrics may not seem to be persuasive, but they still are subconsciously affecting the communities in which they are played.
Another aspect of modern music, is the reference to illegal substances, namely marijuana. According to a 2005 study by U.S. news, “Researchers who looked at the bestselling songs in several genres from 2005 found that 37 percent of top country songs featured references to drugs or alcohol, compared to just 14 percent of rock songs… But country couldn’t hold a candle to rap music, whose singers referred to substance use in a whopping 77 percent of songs.” Across all genres of music, the idea of abusing illegal drugs is rampant. This further leads to the image of doing drugs to be “cool”, and teenagers, looking to fit in, experiment with them.
Musical artists, in some cases, have become idols for their fans, and in this day and age, that may not prove to be pleasant. For example, those who are fans of the artist “Ke$ha”, would probably indulge in massive amounts of alcohol, and partying, because if she does, it must be “cool”. The biggest names of today, whether it be Drake, Lil’ Wayne, or Katy Perry, all make reference to drinking, and doing things that minors shouldn’t be doing. Regularly, that would not pose a problem, because they are adults, and free to express themselves, but the fact of the matter is, that teens are their target audience.
Last, but not least, it has been exhibited that the violence presented in today’s music, namely rap and metal, influence violent behavior among listeners. According to a study done by Western Connecticut State University student Eliana Tropeano, “This study examined whether or not watching a violent music video would provoke individuals to answer questions with violent responses. Eleven participants watched a violent music video, 11 participants watched a nonviolent music video, and 11 participants were in the control group and did not watch any videos. It was found that watching the violent music video containing violent lyrics, aggressive behavior, and degrading behaviors toward women did make an individual feel and react more violently with regards to responses to questions about fictitious scenarios. The conclusion was that watching violent music videos does negatively affect behavior.” It is relatively clear that, based on professional studies, that modern music is definitely causing for a negative impact on today’s youth.
In essence, teenagers are exposed to drug, alcohol, and misogynist ideals almost daily, and thanks are awarded to the “artists” of today’s music. Since 1985, juvenile female rates have doubled, whereas male juvenile rates have risen 30 percent. (Crime In America, 2010). The music we have, and the ease in which teens can acquire music, throughs means legal or otherwise, has caused a rise in the misconduct of teens around the nation. Modern music is truly a negative factor in adolescent life.
