Ever since the sheep Dolly was cloned in 1997, a new field of controversy had been flung open whether  his newly acquired technology of cloning is beneficial or detrimental to human race. It was not by accident that Dolly was cloned. It took nearly about 276 nuclear transfer procedures by a Scottish Scientist at the Roslin Institute in order to create the first cloned animal ever. The success rate of reproductive cloning still remains doubtful at the present moment because the dangers of reproductive cloning are many. It was seen that during mammalian reproductive cloning, a large section of clones suffered from a weakening of the immune system which naturally reduces the animal's capacity to combat infections, diseases and other health related problems. Besides, many of the clones thus produced suffered from major abnormalities, for instance, deformation of an organ or its absence. Research has shown that out of all more...

The invention of the telegraph, telephone, radio, and computer set the stage for this unprecedented integration of capabilities. The Internet has a worldwide broadcasting capability, a mechanism for information dissemination, and a medium for collaboration and interaction between individuals and their computers without regard for geographic location.  By the end of the 1980s, the European Particle Research Laboratory, CERN in Geneva was one of the premier Internet sites in Europe. CERN desperately needed a better way of locating all the files, documents and other resources that now threatened to overwhelm it. A young British more...
