1. Holding wild animals in captivity, such as zoos, circus's', animal parks, etc.
2. Exotic pet ownership
3. Dog & Cock fighting.
4. Abusive / neglectful pet owners (watch "Animal Cops..." on Animal Planet * you'll get a lot of inspiration.)
Hope this helps. Good Luck!

It sounds like a couple of things here. Clarification, first the bf is the babies father? Second it sounds like at 3oz, your son is fairly young. I think there is more to this since you live separate from your bf. The reason I bring up the babies age, is that can be stressful for any mother, plus being your first child everything is new and sometimes challenging and that can jack with your emotional state. Anyway, maybe you should have dad watch the baby while you and his mom go have a ladies day together. This doesn't need to be confrontational, but more of a getting to know you better experience, for both of you. Even though he is 22--you know he is always his mother's baby and since he hasn't taken any steps to become independent than his mom knows nothing else to do differently from what she's been doing with him for the past 22 years. It is thoughtful of you to acknowledge several things, one that you don't want to hurt her feelings, two that you know she does a lot of things for you. It is up to you and your bf to move in together and raise your son together. The current arrangement hardly seems fair to anyone in this situation, you, him, your son and his mother. It is important that you bond and establish a loving and cordial relationship with his mother--even if the two of you don't make it, she will always be a part of her grandsons life. You sound mature, just reasonably frustrated--try bonding with mom and get your family together--outside of his mom. It's going to be up to you to push the issue--just do it in a nice way and keep an open mind, his feelings are just as important as yours.
I think doing a research paper on Animal testing would be very controversial. Some people are very against it (animal rights activists) and they have good reason to be. Other people (scientists) think this is the only way to cure diseases, test products, etc (which it isnt, they are just too cheap to use modern technology). You would definitely be able to find information about this. You could also include the animal rights activist groups that try to free these animals (ALF-Animal Liberation Front, PETA), or cause destruction to the facilities. They have great information about the facilities and how horrible the animals are treated, and info on the types of unnecessary experiments are used. Most arent even required by the government, and most of the research they conduct is useless (i.e. if a rabbit goes blind from a product, they can still market it to humans).
Another would be factory farms. How horribly the animals are treated, and how some people believe it is fine to confine, starve, mutilate these animals because they are food for us and have no feelings. But I think the animal testing issue would be a better paper. And it would really open peoples eyes who read it. You would probably be so disgusted with the whole thing that you would stop buying certain brands. Good luck!

I would write about how makeup can be used for good and bad. It can be a great way to help people to cover scaring, burns, bruises etc. that others may self confidence about. But the bad is the damage that it can do over time and also the younger generation feeling the need to wear makeup and grow up so fast.

The annual Canadian baby fur seal hunt and the illegal Japanese whale hunt (they exploit a "research" loophole in the law banning whale hunts) both make my blood boil.
Both responses above mine are also very good.

How about a study of which will in the interior of the house would be more safe, an interior bathroom, a small closet, or under the stairwell. What is a cheaper alternative that will provide maximum protection short of building a storm shelter or adding a basement to your home.
Or how to remodel, design, or build a closet, bathroom,. interior closet safer without adding much significant cost to the builder or someone who just want to upgrade their home.
Homes with fire and carbon monoxide detectors have beem proven to save lives. What about a requirement that all homes built from now on or older homes that are sold in areas where severe whether are more common be required to have an alarm that will only alarm when a tornado warning is issued for your area. If not a requirement, how about a suggestion that home insurance companies can lower the price on the on the premium of those homes that have this kind of device installed. Your study may be how much an insurance company may save on this type of device used in homes. Or you can study the cost, public support, and/or where to best place these alarms. Would people be more likely to take action if an alarm went off inside their house rather them hearing a siren going off in a distance?
Finally, what exactly are the false alarm ratio verses a verified warning and the time between the warning and the touchdown time of a tornado and how that may play in how you would want to design your home.
