Cave Art - 408 words
At the foot of a cliff in the Ardche Gorges, in south-eastern France, amateur speleologists discovered the world's oldest painted prehistoric cave. Discovered on December 18, 1994, this cave features art that dates back thirty-one thousand years. Jean-Marie Chauvet, Eliette Brunel-Deschamps and Christian Hillaire, were the amateurs who discovered the cave that has come to be known simply as the Chauvet cave. The explorers were in Vallon-Pont-d'Arc, France some thirty feet below ground. While exploring a cave, they were intrigued by a draft of air. They followed the draft to the source and discovered a cavity. This cavity then led to a vast network of galleries and rooms. The explorers were a ...

Renting Vs Buyng A Home - 1,588 words
Should I sign another lease or take the plunge and buy a place I can really call home? This is a question that millions of Americans ask themselves everyday. This question is also an important one for me, as I am currently trying to make this decision. To answer this question consumers need to consider a few factors. A couple of these factors that need to be considered are their lifestyles and financial situations. According to the 1990 United States Census, there are approximately three million people in the state of Texas that live in owner-occupied housing and slightly over two million that live in renter-occupied housing. There are numerous reasons that people may choose to rent over act ...

Acatalasia - 1,730 words
Several rare electrophoretic variants of red cell catalase were identified by Baur (1963). Nance et al. (1968) also described electrophoretic variants. Data on gene frequencies of allelic variants were tabulated by Roychoudhury and Nei (1988). Wieacker et al. (1980) assigned a gene for catalase to 11p by study of man-mouse cell hybrid clones. In the hybrid cells, detection of human catalase was precluded by the complexity of the electrophoretic patterns resulting from interference by a catalase-modifying enzyme activity. Therefore, a specific antihuman antibody was used in conjunction with electrophoresis. In mouse, catalase is not syntenic to the beta-globin cluster or to LDH-A. Junien et a ...

Motivate My Indifference - 888 words
So what college do you want to go? asked Mrs.Scully. I want to go to Harvard., I want to go to Yale, a group of 3rd graders eagerly answered. That was 9 years ago, and nine years later like the small desks with drawers, my Arthur poster hanging on the wall, the dreams of Yale and Harvard too faded away. Maybe you are like me, for the very first time in my life, I felt something different, something slipped away; insecurity, agony and remorse. If you are like everyone else in the school, these dreams has been replaced with the constant repeat of GPA, extra-curricular, sports, after school jobs and AP courses. No gone the time when we roamed the fresh, green grass of the soccer field on a warm ...
