No one can really know, because no one on earth has ever seen Heaven; though, many scholars have come up with different takes on what the believe Heaven to be. In Dante's Paradise, he explains his conception of Heaven by explaining the physical appearance of it, the separate levels within Paradise, and the actual souls residing there. However, Dante's conception of Heaven contradicts what Baptist bel...

  • Hydrogen Energy Atom Levels
    371 words
    Wild Bill's Wild Bohr Quiz Niels Bohr's model of the hydrogen atom, was the primary reason for the understanding of energy levels. Bohr was able to explain the bright line spectrum of hydrogen. Sparked by the recent discovery of the diffraction patterns, scientists believed electrons could be described as waves. Bohr hypothesized that energy is being added to the hydrogen gas in the electricity form, and then leaving the gas in the form of light. He figured the light rays to be quantized, meanin...

  • Phosphates And Dissolved Oxygen
    829 words
    Phosphates are present in many natural waters, such as lakes and streams. Phosphates are essential to aquatic plant growth, but too much phosphate can lead to the growth of algae and results in an algae bloom. Too much algae can cause a decrease in the amount in dissolved oxygen in the water. Oxygen in water is affected in many different ways by phosphates Phosphorus is usually present in natural waters as phosphate (Mc welsh and Raintree, 1998). Phosphates are present in fertilizers and laundry...

    Explaining a BOOM using the AD-AS model The Business Cycle or Trade Cycle is characterised by a regular cyclical pattern with four distinctive phases: the expansion, the peak, the contraction, and the trough. The peak, also known as the boom phase of the cycle is characterised by the following conditions: A reduction in the rate of investment spending, resulting from high business costs, falling business confidence and a lower expectation of profit. Relatively high levels of employment with shor...
  • Cholesterol High Risk Heart
    2,637 words
    Cholesterol is a soft, fat-like, waxy substance found in the bloodstream and in all your body's cells. It's normal to have cholesterol. It's an important part of a healthy body because it's used for producing cell membranes and some hormones, and serves other needed bodily functions. But too high a level of cholesterol in the blood is a major risk for coronary heart disease, which leads to heart attack. It's also a risk factor for stroke. Hypercholesterolemia is the term for high levels of blood...

    - THE CAUSES OF DELAYED MENARCHE IN FEMALE ATHLETES - INTRODUCTION Greater emphases on the benefits of exercise have led to a greater participation of women in sport at all levels. Exercise has been promoted, endorsed and encouraged in the medical community as a way to reduce stress and maintain a healthy lifestyle. While moderate exercise does provide valuable benefits, intensive exercise associated with elite female athletes poses serious health risks to the female body. The female reproductiv...

    Why Do We Eat: New Insight into the Role of Brain Neurotransmitters Eating has taken its toll on people who live in the United States. One of the largest problems that people have is deciding how much to eat and what is healthy to eat. It was determined in the 1930 s-1940 s that the brain has a tremendous impact in controlling our eating habits. The main part of the brain, which controls this, is the hypothalamus. Basically, the hypothalamus measures different levels through out the body, espec...
  • Mission Statement Enterprise Strategy Labor

    4. "Division of labor" is basically the idea which ultimately increases the output of an enterprise by using the breakdown of labor (expressed through the mission statement) to allow the skills of individuals to run and maintain the transformation process. "Division of labor", in turn, is closing related with the term and the definition of strategy. The two are related to each other in that they affect each other. More simply put, strategy is what defines the "division (s) of labor." By using t...

Heart disease usually affects persons over age 60, but can be seen in people who are much younger for various reasons....
  • Bowen's Family Systems Increased Level
    423 words
    The purpose of this paper is to explain using Bowen's family systems framework, how an individual's level of differentiation and anxiety influence family relationships and strengths. Bowen's family systems theory addresses how patterns of interaction in the family of origin influence a couple's interaction in the next generation with their children. Bowen describes the differences in family functioning, by the degree of anxiety or the degree of differentiation within the family. Bowen's definiti...
  • Environmental Pollution Data Levels Health
    656 words
    Human exposure to pollutants in the air, water, soil and food-whether in the form of short-term, high-level, or long-term, low-level exposure-is a main cause of increased morbidity and death. However, the disease burden attributable to these exposures is not known with any degree of certainty because levels of general environmental pollution fluctuate greatly, methods for analyzing the relationships are incompletely developed, and the quality of available data is generally poor. Precise measures...
  • Dissolved Oxygen Water Levels Gas
    629 words
    Research Dissolved oxygen infers to the volume of oxygen that is contained in water. Oxygen enters water through photosynthesis and across the water interface. The amount of oxygen that can be held by the water depends on the water pressure, salinity, and temperature. Gas solubility increases with decreasing temperature; thus colder water holds more oxygen. A reason why freshwater holds more oxygen than does saltwater is because gas solubility increases with decreasing salinity. When there is a ...

    Running head: THE NEUMAN'S SYSTEM MODEL This group did an assessment of learning needs for the class regarding neuman's system model, and found out that some students were still unclear about the applications of this system model. Students needed more in depth education of the different levels of prevention and how they apply to the nursing process. When the instructor presented the neuman's system theory in class, there were students who had difficulties differentiating the three levels of prev...
  • Endocrine Cells Gastrin Concentration Study
    271 words
    It is well known that serum gastrin is an important hormone secreted by endocrine cells. Thus, it is important to study gastrin activity and its implications during digestion to better understand the impact that this hormone has upon the digestive system. Current research discusses the possibility that concentrations of gastrin may play a role in early detection of pancreatic endocrine tumors (PETs) in patients with multiple endocrine neoplasia type 1 (MEN 1). One study concluded that early dete...
  • Acromegaly And Its Diagnosis
    2,645 words
    Acromegaly (Greek for "appendage enlargement") is a rare but very serious disease frequently referred to as "Gigantism" or "Giantism." It is the direct result of an overproduction and secretion of the adenohypophyseal growth hormone GH. True to its name, the disease is characterized by an enlargement of the organs, bones, and soft tissues, as well as a thickening of the skin and bodily membranes; and is frequently difficult to diagnose, as symptoms often do not appear until middle age. Typically...
  • Criminality And Genetics Article Summary
    490 words
    Article Summary - "Criminal Genes" Summary As we all know, genes control much of who we are, but the can they make us criminals? Scientists now believe that there is one gene that is at least partially responsible for criminal behavior. The gene that controls the production of monoamine oxidase A (MAO A) is the enzyme that breaks down excess amounts of certain neurotransmitters. Production of MAO A may be what causes, in part, a higher potential for criminal behavior. In 1972, a study was conduc...
