This book will guide you in choosing a sperm donor based on Mendelian Inheritance. It will give you the chance to get the best start for your new family. From reading this book you will understand why it is not enough just to know who your sperm donor is, but also his ancestry as far back as his great grandparents, not just in health, but in intelligence, morals and looks. Ywill understand that most clinics, the NHS, and 'private social network' donors are committing a grave error. AUTHORS: C.W. SALEEBY P. POPENOE M.G.V. TYSON Sperm Donation & Mendelian Inheritance It is important when starting a family under the circumstances relating to a sperm donor to consider Mendelian inheritance . As by using a sperm donor, one does not have to give any share to feeling and is at liberty to only give the entire share to thought. One should ask questions as: What looks will my child inherit from the sperm donor? What base intelligence will my child inherit from the sperm donor? What strength, physical and mental will my child inherit from the sperm donor? Will my child inherit a long youthful life from the sperm donor? Will my child inherit blonde hair and blue eyes from the sperm donor? Is that what I want? It is the duty of anyone seeking to start a family via sperm donation to determine the Mendelian fitness of the donor and to estimate the prospect of the future child's life. To ask whether nature in general contributes more to a man than nurture is futile; but it is not at all futile to ask whether the differences in a given human trait are more affected by differences in nature than by differences in nurture. It is easy to see that a verdict may be sometimes given to one side, sometimes to the other. Albinism in animals, for instance, is a trait which is known to be inherited, and which is very slightly affected by differences of climate, food supply, etc. The limited effect of nurture in changing nature is in some fields a matter of common observation. The man who works in the gymnasium knows that exercise increases the strength of a given group of muscles for a while, but not indefinitely. There comes a time when the limit of a man's hereditary potentiality is reached, and no amount of exercise will add another milli-meter to the circumference of his arm. Similarly the handball or tennis player someday reaches his highest point, as do runners or race horses. A parallel case is found in the students who take a college examination. Half a dozen of them may have devoted the same amount of time to it--may have crammed to the limit--but they will still receive widely different marks. These commonplace cases show that nurture has seemingly some power to mold the individual, by giving his inborn possibilities a chance to express themselves, but that nature says the first and last word. Francis Galton hit on an ingenious and more convincing illustration by studying the history of twins.

The Yellow Wallpaper American Feminist Literature By Charlotte Perkins Gilman "The Yellow Wallpaper" is a 6,000-word short story by the American writer Charlotte Perkins Gilman, first published in January 1892 in The New England Magazine. It is regarded as an important early work of American feminist literature, illustrating attitudes in the 19th century toward women's physical and mental health. Presented in the first person, the story is a collection of journal entries written by a woman (Jane) whose physician husband (John) has confined her to the upstairs bedroom of a house he has rented for the summer. She is forbidden from working and has to hide her journal from him, so she can recuperate from what he calls a "temporary nervous depression - a slight hysterical tendency," a diagnosis common to women in that period. The windows of the room are barred, and there is a gate across the top of the stairs, allowing her husband to control her access to the rest of the house. The story depicts the effect of confinement on the narrator's mental health and her descent into psychosis. With nothing to stimulate her, she becomes obsessed by the pattern and color of the wallpaper. "It is the strangest yellow, that wall-paper! It makes me think of all the yellow things I ever saw - not beautiful ones like buttercups, but old foul, bad yellow things. But there is something else about that paper - the smell! ... The only thing I can think of that it is like is the color of the paper! A yellow smell." In the end, she imagines there are women creeping around behind the patterns of the wallpaper and comes to believe she is one of them. She locks herself in the room, now the only place she feels safe, refusing to leave when the summer rental is up. "For outside you have to creep on the ground, and everything is green instead of yellow. But here I can creep smoothly on the floor, and my shoulder just fits in that long smooch around the wall, so I cannot lose my way."
