Controlling and Managing Type 1 Diabetes

Diabetes is a metabolic disease that affects a person’s blood sugar due to the body’s inability to process insulin- either because of a failing pancreas or because the person’s blood cells do not know how to properly absorb the insulin needed to keep the body going. In the scientific community the condition goes by diabetes mellitus. There are three main types of diabetes- type 1 diabetes, type 2 diabetes and gestational diabetes. Type 1 diabetes used to be known as juvenile diabetes due to its prevalence in children. Type 2 diabetes is the most common form of diabetes in the United States and is usually associated with unhealthy eating and poor exercise. Gestational diabetes is a rare form of diabetes that occurs in women during pregnancy. Untreated, diabetes can cause comas, cardiovascular disease, renal failure, blindness, paralysis and more. That is why early diagnosis and intervention, as well as proper management and learning to control the disease is so important if a person with diabetes wants to live a long and healthy life.

Race-Baiter essay

Race-Baiters is a unique social commentary about the perspective of the media today. Unlike the days, where news was delivered to give you the news, it now focuses on entertainment, opinions and editorial story pieces that run throughout the thirty to an hour long format. Mega news networks like CNN, FOX, MSNBC, and others are prime sources of where most individuals receive political and world news, relying on local new sources for more local events. These leading news networks have garnered a mass audience and have substantial influences on individuals in aspects of religion, political, and social issues. Eric Deggans defines media ecology as, “the constellation of websites, social media spaces, radio and TV outlets, print publication, and even music platform that each person regularly consults each day.”(Deggans, pg.225) The basis of media ecology is that it defines your circle of network of social and technology sources that make up your daily digital digest.
