During Skloot and Deborah’s meeting with Christoph Lengauer, Lengauer emphasizes the importance of Henrietta Lacks’s contribution to science and how she is remembered in the medical community. Langauer states, “Whenever we read books about science, it’s always HeLa this and HeLa that. Some people know those are the initials of a person, but they don’t know who that person is. That’s important history.”
Write a article that addresses the following:
-Evaluate whether the book effectively illustrates the significance of Henrietta Lacks’s life, her contributions to science, and their impact on her family. Answer the following questions in your evaluation:
-Are there problematic elements as to how Skloot portrays Lacks and her family?
-Do you agree with Lengauer’s quote that it is important to know about Henrietta Lacks? Why or why not?
-Explain how learning about Henrietta Lacks’s story helped you become a more ethical leader.
-Provide 2 to 3 examples of what medical professionals can do to prevent unethical practices.
Tourism is undeniably one of the world’s largest industries, and in parallel with its enormous growth is the rise in popularity of new and unusual forms of travel (Gębarowski, 2019). Although people have long been attracted to places of historical tragedy and catastrophe, the concept of Dark tourism, a phenomenon which encompasses “the act of travel to sites associated with death, suffering and the seemingly macabre” (Stone, 2006, p. 146) has only recently been accepted as valuable economically, culturally and educationally within contemporary society (Light, 2017). In fact, the creation and consumption by visitors of authentic and commodified Dark tourism sites that were once considered niche is becoming one of the most developing branches of tourism and a significantly practiced cultural activity over the past several years (Gębarowski, 2019). Concurrently, there is evidence of a greater willingness and desire on the part of tourists to visit these somber attractions, such as cemeteries, battlefields, and other sites of human atrocities, assassinations, incarcerations, genocide, disasters or infamous deaths. This growing demand has often been linked to experience marketing and new movements towards the pursuit of activities offering unique and unforgettable experiences to tourists (Gębarowski, 2019). This trend has engendered an increase in the retail provision of such attractions, but with an enormous variance in the presentation of these Dark tourism sites has come a number of associated ethical and moral issues including commercialization, glorification, exploitation and misinformation in the marketing practices of tourist providers and the risk of passive tourist behaviour (Light, 2017). While many traditional tourist destinations have a growing Dark tourism focus, one such country that proves to be championing this movement in terms of the range and validity of offered attractions is Bermuda. The small island’s illustrious tourism industry boasts picturesque pink-sand beaches, clear turquoise waters, vibrantly colourful neighbourhoods, a unique assortment of cultures, and a diverse topography ideal for aquatic adventures (Bermuda Tourism Authority, 2020). However, beyond these scenic elements considered central to the country’s allure are a number of dark historical events comprising many of Bermuda’s most visited tourist attractions, including fortifications, cemeteries, shipwrecks, hauntings, and witchcraft. It is precisely the stark juxtaposition between these sublime connotations of relaxation and the adjective dark past which make for such a fascinating island vacation. Although eerie at times, Dark tourism undoubtedly has the ability to allow us to learn from the worst of human history, spawning an entirely new meaning beyond the innately voyeuristic activity often affiliated with travel (Robinson, 2016). Arguably, the island’s most distinctive feature and one deeply rooted in its very identity is the fact that it is located in the area of the North Atlantic Ocean between Miami, Puerto Rico, and Bermuda in which countless ships, planes, and people are alleged to have >GET ANSWER
