... ions. Preparations with a sun protection factor (SPF) of at least 15 and which block both UVA and UVB rays are recommended. SLE is typically a disease which shows a fluctuating course characterized by long periods of relative inactivity (remission) punctuated by unpredictable flares of inflammation involving one or more organ systems (exacerbation). Fortunately for a majority of SLE patients, the symptoms are so mild as to require little or no specific treatment. The choice of therapy will therefore depend both on the nature as well as the severity of the symptoms. The initial treatment of minor joint aches and pains may often consist of simple anti-arthritic medications sometimes known ...

... in hymn writing, especially iambic tetrameter (eight syllables per line, with every second syllable being stressed). She frequently employed off rhymes. Examples of off rhymes include ocean with noon and seam with swim in the lines "Than Oars divide the Ocean, / Too silver for a seam / Or Butterflies, off Banks of Noon / Leap, plashless as they swim" from the poem "A Bird came down the Walk." Dickinson used common language in startling ways; a strategy called defamiliarization. This technique would, as she put it, "distill amazing sense / From ordinary Meanings" and from "familiar species." Her poem "A Bird came down the Walk" also illustrates her use of defamiliarization: "A Bird came ...

Emily Dickinson - 1,567 words
Emily Dickinson, recognized as one of the greatest American poets of the nineteenth century, was born December 10, 1830 in Amherst, Massachusetts (Benfey, 1). Dickinsons greatness and accomplishments were not always recognized. In her time, women were not recognized as serious writers and her talents were often ignored.

Her work was influenced by poets of the seventeenth century in England, and by her puritan upbringing. Dickinson was an obsessively private writer. Dickinson withdrew herself from the social contract around the age of thirt ...

The Human Genome Project - 683 words
A genome is all the DNA in an organism, including its genes. Genes carry information for making all the proteins required by all organisms. These proteins determine, among other things, how the organism looks, acts, processes and fights infections. DNA is made up of four similar chemicals (bases, adenine , Thymine , cytosine , and guanine ) that are repeated millions or billions of times throughout a genome. The human genome has three billion base pairs. The order of these base pairs are extremely important and determine everything in an organism. The Human Genome Project started in the mid-1980s and was discussed widely throughout the scientific community and public press in the last years ...

Defending A Woman's Right To Abortion - 1,934 words
In an essay entitled A Defense of Abortion author Judith Jarvis Thomson offers a number of considerations that would justify abortion in almost all cases without denying the personhood of an unborn child. Thomsons argument is not based on the distinguishing comparison between human beings classified as members of a species, namely homosapiens, who possess the human genetic code and the actual human person who possesses cognitive consciousness or the ability to know what is going on around him/her. Instead, her argument is based on the assumption that every person has a right to life. Although Thomson herself does not believe that the life of a human person begins at conception, for arguments ...

Neurological Regeneration - 1,185 words
Biological regeneration has been studied over the years, in salamanders, and biological imitations of life. Through research on the mitotic capabilities of certain animals, to the DNA and hormones that make regeneration possible, scientists are slowly finding a way so that humans can regenerate lost or missing limbs, or grow organs used to save millions of lives in the future. Because being able to reproduce a limb or body part is dependent on nerves, scientists have found it vital to perform especial experimental procedures to find a way to prevent difficult regenerated nerves from inhibiting the regeneration process. The medicinal leech, a worm-like creature once used by doctors to bleed p ...

Environmental Study Of The Green Revolution - 1,161 words
With the rapid growth of our global population pouring into the next millennium, we will witness an ever-growing hunger rate around the world. The Green Revolution which already sprouted in the early part of the century, only needs to add a bit more momentum and we will see a bright future for the human race, a future without hunger and starvation- hopefully. Citizens believe that the miracle seeds of the Green Revolution will enhance grain yields and therefore are a key to ending world hunger. Higher yields mean more income for unfortunate farmers, helping them to get out of poverty and more food means less hunger. Although the new seeds helped tens of millions of extra tons of grain a year ...
