The Fear of Science
The Fear of Science The Fear of Science To live in the today\'s world is to be surrounded by the products of science. For it is science that gave our society color television, the bottle of aspirin, and the polyester shirt. Thus, science has greatly enhanced our society; yet, our society are still afraid of the effect of science. This fear of science can be traced back to the nineteenth century where scientist had to be secretative in experimenting with science. Although science did wonders in t

The Time Machine I choose The Time Machine, by H. G. Wells, for my movie book comparison. H. G. Wells copyrighted it in 1895. Rod Taylor and Yvette Mimieux played the main characters in the movie. It was directed by George Pal and opened in the year of 1960. There were two main characters in the book and the movie. One of them was the time traveler, George, whom Rod Taylor played. And the other one was Weena, the child like woman that George the time traveler saves. Yvette Mimieux played her. Bo

Evolution From A Molecular Perspective Introduction: Why globular evolution? Evolution has been a heavily debated issue since Charles Darwin first documented the theory in 1859. However, until just recently, adaptation at a molecular level has been overlooked except by the scientific world. Now with the help of modern technology, the protein sequences of nearly every known living thing have either been established or are in the process of establishment, and are widely accessible via the internet

Should cloning be accepted?
Should cloning be accepted? A few years ago if you were to ask someone about cloning, they would probably tell you that it’s impossible. How ever this appears to be the most major and most talked about breakthrough in the 20th century, and we are not even ready for it. But what is cloning, where are its roots? A clone is a group of organisms that are genetically identical. The one process of cloning, called nuclear transfer, replaces the nucleus of an immature egg with another cell. When the nuc

The Chrysalids The title “The Chrysalids” signifies that it is a novel about change. The word “chrysalid” is related to the word “chrysalis”, which means “the form which butterflies, moths, and most other insects assume when they change from the state of larva or caterpillar and before they arrive at their winged or perfect state”. Or in simpler terms, it is the state where the caterpillar does most, if not all, of its change into a butterfly. Change can happen anywhere, whether it be in a phys

My test subject is Drosiphila melanogaster, the common fruitfly. I crossed homozygous wild type females with homozygous recessive males through the F2 generation. I scored the flies to see if the genes independently assort according to Mendel\'s Law of Independent Assortment. For my experiment I used two set of flies with two different mutations. T

This is discovered to be very true by the main characters in The Scarlet Letter, Nathaniel Hawthorne\'s story of a woman (Hester) who lives with the Puritans and commits adultery with the local minister (Dimmesdale). In his novel, Hawthorne shows that sin, known or unknown to the community, isolates a person from thei

Alzheimer\'s Disease by: Michael Sang Introduction to Alzheimer\'s Alzheimer\'s disease is a progressive degenerative disease of the brain. It is first described by the German neuropathologist Alois Alzheimer (1864-1915) in 1905. This disease worsens with advancing age, although there is no evidence that it is cause by the aging process. The average life expectancy of a person with the disease is between five and ten years, but some patients today can live up to 15 years due to improvements in c

A Study Of Inheritable Traits in Fruit Flies INTRODUCTION The Drosophila melanogaster, more commonly known as the fruit fly, is a popular species used in genetic experiments. In fact, Thomas Hunt Morgan began using Drosophila in the early 1900’s to study genes and their relation to certain chromosomes(Biology 263). Scientists have located over 500 genes on the four chromosomes in the fly. There are many advantages in using Drosophila for these types of studies. Drosophila melanogaster can lay hu

The Great Imposters Finding good day care can certainly pose a problem these days, unless, of course, you\'re an African widow bird. When it comes time for a female widow bird to lay her eggs, she simply locates the nest of a nearby Estrildid finch and surreptitiously drops the eggs inside. That\'s the last the widow bird ever sees of her offspring. But not to worry, because the Estrildid finch will take devoted care of the abandoned birds as if they were her own. And who\'s to tell the differen

Aggression Aggression is a critical part of animal existence, which is an inherent driving force to humans, as we, too, are animals. The source of aggression within humans is a long summative list, but before trying to understand its source one must apply a working definition of aggression. Aggressive behavior is defined by Encyclopedia Britannica as any action of an animal that serves to injure an opponent or prey animal or to cause an opponent to retreat. (7) David G. Myers states that aggress

Four million Americans suffer from the disease which deprives the victim of the ability to remember, think, reason, and eventually coordinate movement. This most common form of dementia is caused physically by the gradual change in nerve cells, which leads to the destruction of brain cells. Studies find that this fourth leading cause of death affe
