... attern of systematic development also characterized American agriculture. In the year 1879, 74 percent of the American labor force worked on farms (Bolino, 34). The figure today is under 2 percent (Bolino, 34). There were some prosperous tobacco plantations in Virginia and Maryland, but most farmers and their families, which is to say most Americans, grew crops primarily for their own consumption. They had already started to barter with each other, and to buy and sell produce in significant quantities. So some specialization had begun. This shift in farming patterns was the real beginning of American capitalism on a broad scale, at least outside the major commercial cities of the eastern ...

Holesterol - 1,541 words
For years, cholesterol has been a major concern for millions of people around the world. This fear of cholesterol has led to many consultations with specialists like physicians and nutritionists. It seems that there is a great misconception about this molecule. A majority of the population is conscious of the harm that it can cause, but they are not aware that it has pertinent values to our body. There are two major forms that cholesterol comes in: 1) low density lipoprotein, which is generally considered "bad" cholesterol and 2) high density lipoprotein, which is known as "good" cholesterol. Although given these names, there is nothing inherently good or bad about them. This research will c ...

... ws the cross-bridge to detach and re-attach to another active site on an actin molecule. This contraction cycle is repeated as long as free calcium is available to bind the troponin and ATP is available to provide the energy. The signal to stop contraction is the absence of the nerve impulse at the neuromuscular junction. When this occurs, an energy requiring calcium pump located within the sarcoplasmic reticulum begins to move the calcium back into the sarcoplasmic reticulum. This removal of calcium from troponin causes tropomyosin to move back to cover the binding sites on the actin molecule and cross-bridge interaction ceases. It is possible for skeletal muscle to exert force without ...

Fiona pulled a daisy from the ground and, when she did, there was a sudden burst of light coming from a single petal. A miniscule figure emerged, retaining the glow of the light. Fiona laughed and said, Hello, Aquitaine. How are you doing this fine evening? Tim watched the scene in quiet amazement. He was waiting for the right time to exit the shadows and approach Fiona. Now, though, the bright figure fluttered about Fionas head for a moment, then spoke in a quiet, but strong, voice. Being a faerie, ...

A Thermodynamic Reading Of The Crying Of Lot 49 - 1,923 words
A Thermodynamic Reading of The Crying of Lot 49 Exploring thermodynamic entropy and information theory clarifies the ambiguous relationship between Oedipa Maas, Maxwell's Demon and the Tristero System in The Crying of Lot 49. Through a convoluted, chaotic adventure leading to disorder, Oedipa searches for the truth about Tristero, hoping it will save her from her tower of imprisonment (Pynchon, 11). Pynchon dangles this elusive message over Oedipa's head until she discovers Tristero's meaning. However, interference from thermodynamic entropy and the entropy of information theory prevent the message from being transmitted from the transmitter to the receiver. Thermodynamics deals with the cha ...

Wind Power - 385 words
Wind energy is an unlimited source of energy. Many countries, including the United States, use wind energy to some degree. Wind turbines generate electricity by spinning in the wind. There are two main types of wind turbines: the horizontal axis variety and the vertical axis design. The horizontal type is the more common which looks like a traditional windmill. Electricity generated from wind turbines is fed into a local utility grid and distributed just like ordinary electricity. Some wind turbines are twenty stories tall and have propellers that could cover a football field. A wind turbine of this size generates enough electricity to power 1400 homes. All wind turbines are comprised of the ...

Haiti The Republic - 1,944 words
A tiny tropical island sits in the Caribbean, decorated with palm trees and colorful hibiscus flowers. Its mountains stand majestically looking down upon sandy beaches and green valleys. From a distance it appears as any other island you might encounter sailing the waters of the Caribbean. Yet, as you come closer you notice a difference. There are no tourist resorts dotting the coasts, no high rise hotels with sand volleyball courts and marimba bands. This is Haiti, this is different. If the land could speak it would tell of tragedy and violence, of abuse and bloodshed, of power and greed. Why does the country stand apart from its neighbors? The answer lies in the turbulent history of this t ...

This identity is established through collective memory i.e. a groups vision of their history based on historical records revised to fit social and political agendas. The revision is not a rewritten history but rather a representation of history with selective emphasis on historical events. A selective emphasis, elaborates, condenses, omits or conflates historical events to fit a given agenda. Zerubavel states that commemoration is the basis for a groups collective memory. He holds that commemoration (rituals, holidays, fes ...

Breast Cancer - 1,377 words
In the United States in 1999 alone, an estimated 43,700 people will die from breast cancer. It is the number two cancer killer among females ages 15 to 54. On average if a woman gets this disease, their life expectancy drops drastically. This cancer is within the top three cancers of all women above the age of 15, and comprises a great amount of all health care costs in the U.S. totaling an astounding 37 billion dollars a year in direct medical costs. An average woman is said to have a one in nine chance of getting the cancer, but if that person had family history of the disease, his or her chances have been measured up to a one in six chance. Sixty-nine percent of African-American women sur ...

Bio Implant Materials - 1,131 words
This paper will discuss the key properties of three categories of implant alloys; stainless steels, cobalt-based alloys, and titanium-based alloys, focusing on those properties which make the implant alloys ideal for skeletal implants. An additional focus of the paper will be on any disadvantages possessed by each group of implant alloys. Wood was probably the first bioimplant, a sturdy, inert, and readily available material in the older days. But as mankind aged newer materials were discovered, and often created, that were indeed superior. The search for a exceptional implant alloy is one which has laboratories researching and testing different types of alloys for the best combination of st ...

... ife (6). The two most common complications of the procedure are sepsis and loss of the integrity of the anastomoses created. The control of the sepsis is managed with antibiotics specific to the infecting agent (4). The healing of the anastomoses can be aided through the use of agents that block pancreatic secretions especially the proteases. The use of the hormone somatostatin to block exocrine excretion following a Whipples procedure was first done in 1979 and resulted in a decrease in complications. Since then the synthetic somatostatin analogue, octreotite, has been used for this purpose since it is cheaper and has a 1/2 life of 90 min. compared to somatostatins 1/2 life of 1 min. (1 ...

The Homebase Theory - 1,411 words
Glynn Isaac Defines "the Homebase Hypothesis" It has been argued since Darwin's day that the great apes were man's nearest living relatives, and as evidence emerged during the late 1960's of the hunting propensities and simple tool use of chimpanzees (Goodall 1986), anthropologists found more and more reason to presume similarity of behavior between modern (e.g., Pan troglodytes or Pan panicus) and ancient varieties of hominids (Tanner 1981). Still, modern humans are not chimps. Substantial differences of behavior exist between the great apes and hominids, and it was the late Glynn Isaac's notion that these differences began early in our history. Specifically, he noted that the modern human ...
