1.1915 How Far Can Modern Society Stretch the Notion of the Nuclear Family?
This paper will offer a cursory survey of three variations to the nuclear family in modern day North America. This is done in an effort to determine how far our social value systems will allow us to deviate from the traditional model of the nuclear family. This paper will illustrate how families with dual earning partners and families headed by divorced single parents have become a modern day social norm, despite the taboos that once accosted them. In comparison, this paper will examine how lesbian couples with children continue to be denied access into general social arenas, despite recent empirical findings that contradict damning generalizations. 10 pgs. 24 f/c. 9b.

4.3823 Exploring the Myths About "Dangerous Dogs:" Pitbull Terriers and Aggressive Behavior.
With the increase of incidents involving pitbull attacks on people and other domestic pets, there is controversy regarding the predisposition of these dogs, and questions about whether they are genetically "aggressive" dogs, or whether they are trained towards aggression by their owners. This essay confirms the increase in pitbull attacks, but in its analysis, indicates that this increase is reflective of an increase in social violence, not dog breeding. Pitbulls are representative of violence and as such are the dog-of-choice by violent people. 9 pgs. Bibliography lists 7 sources.
