  • Life Sciences Sig: Gut Issues Essay About Dietary Fibers - 540 words
    Life Sciences SIG: Gut Issues - Essay About Dietary Fibers ================================================== === GUT ISSUES Life Sciences SIG -------------------------------------------------- --- We share many experiences with the kings of old: pastries, for instance, and home entertainment and vacation trips to far-off lands. Ancient-day common folk knew nothing of such things. Then again, they weren't constipated... We are. Not all of us, of course. But enough Canadians so that some doctors call our a constipated society. And even if you're not constipated, your present day diet may be leading you to more serious complaints like disorders of the large intestine or colon. These, too, were a ...

  • Penguins: The Eyes Have It Life Sciences Myopic Little Men In Tuxedos, Or Highly Efficient Landwater Animals Recent Research - 1,040 words
    ================================================== Penguins: the eyes have it! LIFE SCIENCES -------------------------------------------------- Myopic little men in tuxedos, or highly efficient land/water animals? Recent research indicates there's more to penguins than meets the eye. If you've every wondered what it would be like to be able to see as clearly under water as you can on land, just ask the nearest penguin.Most aquatic animals are short-sighted on land. Most terrestrial animals (and that includes us) are far-sighted under water. But researchers have discovered that penguins can apparently see equally well in both environments, because of the unique structure of their eyes. Pengui ...

LIFE SCIENCES SIG -------------------------------------------------- -------------------- For some time she had watched his movements, appearing coyly in his haunts. And now, had it paid off? Doubtless, he was in love. His muscles were taut; he swooped through the air more like an eagle than a Greylag gander. The only problem was, it was not for her that he then landed in a flurry of quacks and wingbeats, or for her that he dashed off surprise attacks on his fellows. It was, rather, for another - for her preening rival across the Bavarian lake. Poor goose. Will she mate with the gander o ...

  • Animal Testing - 972 words
    Animal Testing Traditionally, animals have been used to ensure the safety of our consumer products and drugs. Yet around the world, scientists, regulators and animal protectionists work together to develop alternatives to their use. The use of animals in the life sciences dates back to ancient Greece and the earliest medical experiments. To learn about swallowing, physicians cut open into the throat of a living pig. To study the beating heart, they cut open into its chest. For centuries physicians and researchers used animals to enhance their knowledge about how the various organs and systems of the body functioned, as well as to hone their surgical skills. As long as animals have been used ...

Structure: HBV is a 42 nm doubleshelled deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) virus of the class Hepadnaviridae. The outer surface membrane contains Hepatitis B surface antigen (HBsAg), which also circulates in blood as 22 nm spherical and tubular particles. The inner core of the virus contains Hepatitis B core antigen (HBcAG), Hepatitis B e antigen (HBeAg), a single molecule of partially doublestranded DNA, an ...

  • Space Exploration - 936 words
    Space Exploration Space Exploration Since the beginning of time, man has been fascinated with the stars and sky. From the time the first man took his first step on the moon, space exploration has been growing and expanding. More and more people are coming up with new ways on how to study the universe. Hence, the more time spent on studying the sky, the more that we will obviously know. So, it would be safe to say that now is a great time to continue the exploration of space. The 1990s contributed to the study of space with new technology, intelligent astronauts, and future ideas. During the 1990s new technology and space crafts were introduced. There have been numerous space launches through ...

  • Species Preservation - 1,639 words
    Species Preservation One issue that has been a controversy is the preservation of endangered species. Ever since the 1960's, scientists have been fighting for laws and acts to protect animals and plants in keeping them in good health and their populations high in numbers. The problem is animals and plants are having trouble surviving in today's world which leads them to be classified as endangered or threatened. Endangered, meaning animals or plants with little population that the species could soon become extinct and threatened is less severe and basically just means that they are close to becoming endangered. By species becoming endangered, this affects our habitat's biodiversity. Today, h ...

  • The Cicada: Many Things To Many People - 1,704 words
    The Cicada: Many Things To Many People In this century of rapid scientific discovery, there still exist natural phenomena with the power to inspire wonder and mystery. The cicada, an insect known since ancient times, is one such phenomenon. Because scientific knowledge of the cicada contains many gaps, these mysterious insects can still stimulate our imagination or lead us into confusion. At the present time, the cicada is many things to many people: it is a curiosity that should be approached scientifically; it is a source of superstition and dread; it is also little more than an annoying, seasonal inconvenience. The cicada is a stout, black insect about an inch in length. Various species o ...

One recruiter even concluded that computer-skill requirement varies by engineering discipline. Many employers agreed that computer literacy is important to all, and that if a student graduates without any [skills], he/she will have a distinct disadvantage in the workforce. Lacking these skills would not exclude most college graduates from the job market, however, the more skills they exhibit, the more attractive they would be to potential employers.

  • What Is The Human Genome Project - 1,297 words
    What is the Human Genome Project? The Human Genome Project (HGP) is an international research program designed to construct detailed genetic and physical maps of the human genome, to determine the complete nucleotide sequence of human DNA, to localize the estimated 80,000 genes within the human genome, and to perform similar analyses on the genomes of several other organisms used extensively in research laboratories as model systems. This project is estimated to take 15 years to complete from October 1990 and has already cost the U.S. 2.5 billion dollars. The scientific products of the HGP will comprise a resource of detailed information about the structure, organization and function of huma ...
