The morality of meatlessness: Why children choose vegetarianism

first_imgThe study began a few years ago when Karen Hussar, Ed.M.’06, Ed.D.’07, then a doctoral student, became interested in children who chose to become vegetarians at a young age (6-10) despite being raised in meat-eating families. To what extent, she wondered, was this decision based on morals, not health?In September, Professor Paul Harris, Hussar’s adviser and project collaborator, presented Hussar’s ongoing research at a discussion sponsored by the Ed School’s Civic and Moral Education Initiative. Harris explained that Hussar studied these “independent vegetarian” children, as she called them, as well as “family vegetarians” — children who grew up in vegetarian families — and a third group who, Harris said, “ate and enjoyed meat.”The initial question they explored was how these children view meat eating and why they might not eat meat. The independent vegetarians overwhelmingly cited animal rights as a top reason for not eating meat, while family vegetarians split the reasons between animal rights, family influence, and religion. Meat eaters said health and taste were top reasons for not eating certain meats.“This first study was simple yet provocative,” said Harris, “with the independent vegetarians giving genuine moral reasons: the suffering and death that meat eating entails. They empathize with the pain and distress.”Read more about the study: Read Full Storylast_img read more

Sevilla practically seal top-four finish in Champions League

first_imgMADRID: Sevilla closed in on Champions League qualification by beating struggling Real Mallorca 2-0 at home to open up a nine-point gap in the race for fourth spot in La Liga. Lucas Ocampos opened the scoring with a first-half penalty while Youssef En Nesyri sealed the victory late on, latching on to a long punt from goalkeeper Bono and barging past a defender to lift the ball over Mallorca keeper Manolo Reina. Sevilla have 66 points after 36 games and will clinch their return to Europe’s premier competition after a two-year absence if Villarreal, who have 57, fail to beat Real Sociedad on Monday. Mallorca are 19th on 32 and will need to earn at least four points in their final two games if they are to stand a chance of staying in the top-flight, as they trail 17th-placed Alaves by three points and have an inferior head-to-head record. The result also meant Eibar sealed their top-flight status after beating relegated Espanyol 2-0 away from home earlier on, while 14th-placed Real Valladolid are now also safe on 39 points. They were beaten 1-0 by Barcelona on Saturday. Edu Exposito scored both goals to earn Eibar their first win in four matches which took them to 15th in the standings on 39 points, seven above the relegation zone. Elsewhere, Leganes lived to fight another day in La Liga, riding their luck in a 1-0 win at home to Valencia after playing most of the second half with 10 men and seeing their opponents squander a penalty. Midfielder Ruben Perez put the Madrid minnows in front in the 18th minute from the penalty spot, scoring his first goal since 2013. But his side suffered a setback when Jonathan Silva was shown a straight red card in the 54th. Valencia earned a penalty soon after following a handball by Leganes’ Rodrigo Tarin, but captain Dani Parejo’s spot-kick was beaten away by goalkeeper Ivan Cuellar and Leganes somehow clung on to record a first home victory since February. Defeat would have condemned Leganes to relegation, while the win saw them instead move up to 18th place in the standings on 32 points with two games remaining, three points behind 17th-placed Alaves who have a game in hand. Valencia are ninth on 50 points. Also on Sunday, Athletic Bilbao won 2-1 away to Levante thanks to two goals from Raul Garcia to move into seventh place, the final Europa League berth, on 51 points.

BREAKING Tesla Model 3 Full Self Driving Option Is Going Away

Elon Musk just as recently as a few days ago noted that buyers who opted for the full self driving option would be receiving hardware updates. This naturally led many to believe that the previously alluded to new custom chip might be on the way soon.Last month, about 100 employees also began testing the fully autonomous option.It is possible this was done because the autonomous option continues to be behind schedule by Musk’s own previous admission.However, considering the timing of this previous announcement, the removal of the Model 3 Full Self Driving option might mean that the new hardware change could happen soon.Source: Reddit Author Liberty Access TechnologiesPosted on October 19, 2018Categories Electric Vehicle News Model 3 FSD option is off the menu for “causing too much confusion”Previously, buyers of the Tesla Model 3 could buy in to a future full self driving option.
