    Poliomyelitis (shortened to polio) has been around for thousands of years, and there is still no cure, but at the peak of its devastation in the United States, Dr. Jonas Salk introduced a way to prevent it. Polio attacks the nerve cells and sometimes the central nervous system, causing muscle wasting, paralysis, and even death. The disease, whose symptoms are flu like, stuck mostly children, and in the first half of the 20 th century the epidemics of polio were becoming more devastating. Salk, w...

    Introduction From simple heredity experiments with garden peas, to cloning sheep, the field of genetics has come a long way. Now we are closer to mapping out the human genetic map due to advances in technology, and years and years of research. Perhaps the most influential and groundbreaking scientist, Gregor Mendel, he was responsible to provide a path to where genetics is now today with his experiments of garden peas. In lab, fruit flies were crossed to observe inheritance patterns in their off...
  • Comets Comet Nucleus Snowball
    284 words
    Comets A comet is generally considered to consist of a small, sharp nucleus embedded in a nebulous disk called the coma. American astronomer Fred L. Whipple proposed in 1949 that the nucleus, containing practically all the mass of the comet, is a "dirty snowball" conglomerate of ices and dust. Major proofs of the snowball theory rest on various data. For one, of the observed gases and meteoric particles that are ejected to provide the coma and tails of comets, most of the gases are fragmentary m...

    Genetic Observations Through The Studies of Hybrid Corn, Single Gene Human Traits, and Fruit Flies The basic foundation of modern genetics was led by Gregor Mendel (Corcos, 1993). Mendel was not the first to experiment with heredity, and our Lyman Briggs biology class will not be the last to deal with genetics. Genetics is the science of heredity. In our lab, we had three main objectives. First, we evaluated our data on mono hybrid and dihybrid corn cross seed counts against Mendel's theoretical...

    "My Decision " During the press conference, I learned / observed many things about Mexican political leaders. I learned how a few of them wanted the best for Mexico, while some just robbed the country of its wealth. I observed how some leaders which wanted the best for Mexico, tried their hardest, but were unsuccessful to help the economy since Mexico was so such a sever debt, that they practically made no difference to the Mexican economy. The poor were still poor, and the desired middle class ...
  • Observational Learning Learner Reinforcement Anger

    When some time is allowed to pass after the extinction process, an organism will usually perform the operant again when placed in a situation in which the operant had been reinforced previously. Spontaneous recovery of learned responses occurs in operant conditioning as well as in classical conditioning. If the operant is reinforced at this time, it quickly regains its former strength. Spontaneous recovery of extinguished operant's suggests that they are inhibited or suppressed by the extinction...
  • Observation Of Social Situation

    While systematically observing a social situation for approximatly one week, I have observed some common patterns of interaction and have rendered some possible explanations for these patterns of behavior. While there were some irregular observations, most of the behavior was consistent with that of my hypotheses. My research question involves the behavior of males versus females in the setting of a workout room or gym. I hyptohesized that males are more likely to interact with each other than f...

    Compare and Contrast: New World Vultures vs. Old World Vultures Old morphological classification grouped all diurnal raptors together, into one large order named the falconiform es. Within that were five broad families, of which were the New World vultures, the osprey, accipitrids (hawks, eagles, owls, and the Old World vultures), the falcons, and the secretary bird of Australia. With modern technology, and through a process known as DNA-DNA hybridization, taxonomists have been able to see that ...
  • Different Perspectives In Art
    428 words
    Perspective is an important aspect in art work, used to make the piece appear more realistic and dramatic. Brunelleschi developed the theory of perspective as well as the three kinds that we have discussed; atmospheric, logical, and observed. Atmospheric perspective creates the illusion of depth with a gradual reduction in the brightness of color and detail in the distance of the painting. It is achieved by using less focus, along with bluer, lighter, and duller hues for the distant spaces and o...
  • Summary Of William Hazlitt's Wordsworth Essay
    285 words
    In the essay Wordsworth, by William Hazlitt, he praises Mr. Wordsworth's ingeniousness. Having succeeded in creating a new approach to writing poetry by combining the "elements of nature and human mind" (Pg. 347), William Hazlitt argues that William Wordsworth has not received due credit for his marvelous work. Disregarding traditional poetry styles, Wordsworth creates his poetry by establishing an "opposition between the spirit of humanity and the spirit of fashion and of the world" (Pg. 348). ...

    Child Study Observation To begin, I observed two children, one boy and one girl, at the Lakeview child study center. I observed substantial differences in how the two children interacted with other children, as well as adults. First, I observed the boy. He went through periods of verbal and non-verbal interaction. For example, he would speak to a teacher by asking her to watch him hoola-hoop. Then, a few moments later he would ignore the teacher when she asked him a question. This verbal-non-ve...
  • Men Women Game Observed

    While attending a high school football game, I observed how men and women react differently in various environments. Football is more of a mans sport. It is rough and loud; just like men. More men are interested in the sport than women. From observing the men at this football game; I have some to conclude many things. More men were loud and rowdy compared to women. The men were all there to actually watch the game; they observed the calls, questioned the referees, and they also observed the boy...

  • Electronic Scale Mass Balance Precise
    496 words
    By using three devices, the platform balance, electronic scale, and the inertia balance it is possible to defy the relationship between mass and weight. The mass of an object relates to the amount of matter there is present. On the other hand, gravity is referred to as the pull or force of an object to the Earth. The platform balance and electronic scale are balances that require gravity to "pull" or have a force on the objects being measured to obtain its mass. The mass measuring device that wo...
  • Spectroscopy And Atomic Spectra
    1,115 words
    Abstract Spectroscopy is a leading technique in studying internal constitution, structure, and isotope shift of atoms, ions, and molecules. Atoms and ions usually do emit light when exposed to high amounts of heat which makes such spectra lines visible under spectroscope, clearly showing differences between various energy levels present in an atom. The aim of the experiment was to document spectroscope design and how such can be used to observe visible spectra lines of gaseous atoms namely th...
