For any controlled scientific study, a scientist starts with an observation, does some research to develop a hypothesis, and then designs an experiment that compares some baseline group with a test group. Data are then collected to confirm or refute the hypothesis. As you review the following study, consider whether the researchers correctly followed the scientific method. In the late 1990s, gastroenterologist Andrew Wakefield, along with a research team, set out to determine if bowel disease caused by vaccines led to autism. He compiled a group of 12 children who had loss of acquired skills, developmental delays in language, diarrhea, and abdominal pain-essentially, those with both bowel disease and autism. He questioned each parent about the behavior and personality of the child before the child was vaccinated with the Measles, Mumps, and Rubella (MMR) vaccine. He then ran tests on the children to determine the health of the gastrointestinal tract, brain, and nervous system. His reported data (tabulated below) included that children experienced either gastrointestinal or autism-like symptoms, sometimes within a short period after being vaccinated. From these data, the researchers concluded that there was no link between autism and the MMR vaccine. Wakefield though, contradicted this conclusion and stated that the vaccine caused changes in the gastrointestinal tract of the children, which then led to autism (Wakefield, et al., 1998). Currently, he still contends that the MMR vaccine contributes to autism (Ziv, 2015). Many researchers tried to duplicate this study and could not replicate Wakefield’s results. In fact, they found no link between the vaccines, bowel disease, and autism. In the United Kingdom, the MMR vaccine was not introduced until 1988. If Wakefield’s conclusions were correct, one would then expect a jump in autism cases after 1988, but this was not observed, even when hundreds of children were studied (Taylor et al., 1999). In these additional studies, children who had not been vaccinated were included as a control group, and no difference in the rates of autism was observed. In 2011, Brian Deer reviewed Wakefield’s study and all available records from the National Health Service (NHS) in the United Kingdom for these 12 children. He found that at most, two children showed symptoms days after vaccinations. At least five children showed developmental delays before being vaccinated. Six out of the 12 children may have had autism symptoms. None of the 12 children tested had all three-regressive autism, colitis, and symptoms days after vaccination. Wakefield’s statements led to a worldwide panic about the safety of vaccines, but after Deer’s report, Wakefield’s study was retracted and his medical license was revoked for falsifying data.

Prior to beginning work on this discussion, read Chapter 5: Operating and Financial Leverage in your textbook. As you explored in your textbook, financial leverage refers to the amount of debt used in the capital structure of a business. The degree of financial leverage measures the effect of a change in the (EPS) of the company that occurs because of a percent change in the (EBIT). List some of the benefits and limitations of financial leverage when it comes to profitability.

F. Scott Fitzgerald is a rare example of a writer who achieved both popular success and respect from literary critics. Even more unusually, he achieved both at the beginning of his writing career. His first and second novels, (1920) and (1925), were both immediate best-sellers and is still considered by many critics to be one of the finest novels ever written by an American. He was also a prominent short story writer who regularly published in the popular magazines of his day. Despite his publishing success, his personal life was nightmarish and he died young—44 years old—of a heart attack brought on by alcoholism. In many ways, Fitzgerald’s fiction reflects the thematic division of his own life: the façade of success which covers a life that feels empty and corrupted. Fitzgerald wrote about the upper crust of society, and those who try to rise up and achieve the American Dream of wealth and privilege. Invariably, the Dream turns into a nightmare that destroys those who try to gain it. These key Modernist themes thread their way through all of Fitzgerald’s fiction, including his story “Winter Dreams.” 1. On the surface, both of the principle characters of the story, Dexter Green and Judy Jones, enjoy lives that embody the American Dream: wealth, status, and luxury. However, describe the different ways the characters demonstrate the emptiness at the center of their lives (they feel the emptiness, but may not be consciously aware of it). Find one example for each character. Hints for question #1: Judy is a “tease.” She tries to acquire the love and fascination of other men. When Dexter is prepared to marry another girl, Judy ignites Dexter’s desire. Will having all these men chasing her give her life meaning? For Dexter, he chases so many other things (wealth, status, luxury) and he chases Judy. He chases after her even after he fully realizes that Judy will never commit to him. Will Judy ever give his life meaning? 2. Why does Dexter break down and cry when he hears of the fate of Judy Jones, a woman who rejected him? Hint’s for question #2: Think about the story’s title, “Winter Dreams.” For Dexter, Judy’s beauty has become his “dream.” Well after Dexter has lost Judy, the actual woman, he still live the “dream” of Judy. But does the end of story, has Dexter lost even the “dream” too?
