    1. The ability of ice to float because of the expansion of water as it solidifies is an important factor in the fitness of the environment. If ice sank, then eventually all ponds, lakes, and even oceans would freeze solid, making life as we know it impossible on earth. During the summer, only the upper few inches of the ocean would thaw. Instead, when a deep body of water cools, the floating ice insulates the liquid water below, preventing it from freezing and allowing life to exist under the fr...

    Everyday, we rely on our five senses: taste, touch, seeing, hearing, and smelling. These are simple processes that we have accepted as part of our lives.

    There once was a guy named Timmy. Timmy was attending college at the University of Wisconsin. At the college, he was going through a biology class and was having a hard time comprehending the theory of cells. He didn't understand what all the cell parts were and what their functions were. He hoped that as time went on, he'd eventually catch on. Well any ways, Timmy was in desperate need of some money. He needed some food for his dorm and wanted a new bike to travel around on.

    Matthew Williams Nucleus for a Day Wow, another exciting day is about to begin. Sometimes I get so tired of being the brains of this whole operation, but it is fun to be the boss and give the orders. Let's examine a typical day: I am the nucleus.
