- Louis Isadore Kahn And The Salk Institute - 760 words
Louis Isadore Kahn And The Salk Institute Louis Kahn and The Salk Institute Standing alone against the endless blue sea, the Salk Institute by Louis I. Kahn is one of a kind.

To many, this magnificent structure may seem out of place, but it works well with the surrounding environment because of the spatial continuity that it possesses.

- Polio - 380 words
Polio Polio runs rampant in countries with very unhealthy sewage practices. Luckily, polio can be isolated from sewage, but anytime unclean water is let into a river, stream, lake, or other water body, it can spread into any unknowing person who uses that water to drink. People in the 30's, 40's and 50's were afraid to swim because of that. Polio after being digested, heads for the cells covering the intestines. There are three main strains of Polio. Two of them only produce a low-grade fever, headache, sore and inflamed throat, nausea, and vomiting. Usually these go unnoticed and have healed in about 72 hours. The third Polio strand is major poliomyelitis. This has two main forms: paralytic ...

Over the course of ten days, Pasteur injected progressively more virulent rabies organisms into the boy, causing the boy to develop immunity in time to avert death from this disease. Another major milestone in the use of vaccination to prevent disease occurred with the efforts of two American physician-researchers. In 1954 Jonas Salk introduced an injectable vaccine containing an inactivated virus to counter the epidemic of poliomyelitis. Subsequently, Albert Sabin made great strides in the fight against this paralyzing disease by developing an oral vaccine containing a live weakened virus. Since the introduction of th ...
