Zinc Hyperaccumulation - 1,010 words
Zinc hyperaccumulation in Thlaspi caerulescens as a chemical defence against herbivory ABSTRACT Thlaspi caerulescens is one of several plant species known to accumulate heavy metals in excess of 2% of their above ground plant biomass. The reasons for hyperaccumulation are unknown, but several studies conclude that it may be a plant chemical defence. This has been of interest to biologists because these metals are usually toxic. The accumulation of these metals may serve as a model for coevolution. We examined the effects of zinc hyperaccumulation in Thlaspi on Xanthomonas campestris and found that the plants containing zinc thrived when inoculated with this bacteria, while plants not contain ...

Nothing will benefit human health and increase the chances for survival of life on Earth as much as the evolution to a vegetarian diet.

The last, and strictest, of the types is vegans. Vegans do not eat ...

The Human And Dolphin Relationship - 1,446 words
The voice of the dolphin in the air is like that of the human in that they can pronounce vowels and combinations of vowels, but have difficulties with the consonants (Aristotle internet). The communication between dolphins can only be described scientifically and historically. The true nature of how dolphins communicate with one another and possibly with other species is something only known to the dolphin. It is an evolving, complex mystery we are only now starting to grasp the significance of. Eventually it may be possible for humans to speak with other species. I have come to this conclusion after careful consideration of evidence gained through my research experiments with dolphins (John ...

Money Is A Form Of Expression - 499 words
Created in the post-Depression era, the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) acts to protect investors by regulating financial speech. The U.S. Supreme Court has ruled, in instances such as the TGS case, that this regulation is not unfair censorship, even though it means some speech is compelled. Rule 10b-5 is one such SEC regulation, which compels speech by prohibiting "fraudulent or misleading corporate communications in any context relevant to investors," according to Zelezny (334). In the decision in the TGS case, [Securities and Exchange Commission v. Texas Gulf Sulphur Co., (1968)], The U.S. Court of Appeal for the Second Circuit set a precedent on Rule 10b-5.

Electric Vehicles - 1,429 words
Environmental demand for cleaner air has put a heavy burden on the automobile, much improved by stringent exhaust stands but still a significant source of pollution. High cost, technological obstacles and the resistance of the public to abandon gasoline have deterred the discovery of new cleaner alternative fuels to help 5the environment. Electric Vehicles are the cleanest burning of the alternative fuel vehicles now available. They are an efficient way to utilize fossil fuels (oil and natural gas) and convert them straight into automotive power. The fossil fuels are burnt at a power plant to produce energy to make electricity to recharge batteries rather than being used in air polluting int ...
