1.0 The Immune System

The human immune system is comprised of a complex network of lymphoid organs and highly specialized cells that protect the body against infection by recognizing and killing pathogens. This immune system includes lymphatic organs and vessels, lymph nodes, white blood cells, specialized cells and serum factors. The immune system utilizes both the lymphatic vessels and the blood circulatory system to transport white blood cells called lymphocytes through out the body (1).

The immune system can be classified as an innate or adaptive system. As a first line of defense against pathogens, we depend on innate immunity. Innate immunity is nonspecific and includes physical barriers such as skin, mucous membranes and secretions with antimicrobial activity including tears and mucous. Pathogens that cross this line of defense are often destroyed by phagocytes which are white blood cells that engulf and digest cellular debris and foreign agents by the process known as phagocytosis.

However, innate immunity is not sufficient to ward off all invaders. Thus, to allow for a stronger immune response and immunological memory, we have developed a specific, inducible system of defense called the adaptive or acquired immune system. A substance capable of inducing or triggering an immune response is called an antigen. The adaptive immune system is responsible for…...

...designing any remote power system. The biggest overriding factor is that all systems, regardless of the power source, should make energy conservation a top priority. Simply put, the less power needed, the lesser the amount that must be produced and stored. This can reduce the size, cost, and weight of the system dramatically. There are many strategies that can be used to reduce the total amount of electrical power required to perform a given task. For a more comprehensive discussion of this subject, see the “Efficiency” section further on in this document. To enable you to determine the optimal PV system size for your chosen application, system sizing worksheets follow at the end of this document. Photovoltaic Power Systems Technology White Paper 1 Components PV Panels PV panels tend to work much better in cold weather than in hot climates (except for amorphous silicon panels). Add a reflective snow surface and the output can sometimes exceed the rating for the panel. Array currents up to 20% greater than the specified output have been reported (1). In general, PV materials are categorized as either crystalline or thin film, and they are judged on two basic factors: efficiency and economics. For remote installations where the actual space available for PV panels is often quite limited, the greater conversion efficiency of crystalline technology seems to have the advantage. It is also worth noting that the conversion efficiency of thin-film panels tends to drop off......

...discusses the importance of choosing organic foods over processed foods, and home cooked meals rather than fast food. The current trend is showing that we have moved away from our cultures of sitting down and eating with the family to a more grab and go lifestyle. This lifestyle has led to our country facing health problems. Pollan states, “Obesity today is officially an epidemic; it is arguably the most pressing public health problem we face, costing the health care system an estimated $90 billion a year” (Pollan 102). Children of the contemporary modern society are seen to be the first generation where diabetes and other health related problems are effecting them the most. Consequently, it may turn out that they are the first generation whose life expectancy will be shorter than their parents. The biggest problem that Michael Pollan addresses in The Omnivore’s Dilemma is obesity. This issue is of urgent public concern. This is a crucial problem that many Americans are facing today. According to Michael Pollan, there are many reasons to explain why obesity is such an epidemic around the world, and especially this nation. He discusses how we are starting to eat out more than we ever did before, and people aren’t exercising as much as they should. 3 The question isn’t what is for dinner but it is actually what should we feed our children for dinner? One may even ask the question, what should we eat for dinner? That is definitely the topic of discussion in most households......

My job is controlling the maritime passage into and out of Gaza thus allowing the safe transport of goods to and from the rest of the world, finding problems and offering solutions to improve the situations there. The purpose of this document is to provide my solutions for the port development of Gaza. Gaza needs to create a new policy to suit the changing global environment that will protect the safety of people’s lives as well as boost Gaza’s economy. BACKGROUND 1. Political Environment Gaza has very long history in the world, and it is also a place that suffered a lot. It has been ruled by both Egypt and Israel and is beloved by neither, which is a problem for all. Gazans are emphatically Palestinian, a national identity forged from the trauma of losing their land to Jewish armies in 1948, the year Israel was established. Many defeated Arab landowners fled to Gaza, where 3 out of 4 residents are classified as refugees. The Jews initially made no claim to Gaza, and the strip of coast became a holding pen administered by Egypt's military. The West Bank was......

...Introduction to Life Science 5/07/2013 For this assignment made me think a lot about the things that a lot of great men and woman have done scientifically before I start this assignment I want to tell you about some great people that I admire in the scientific world. Those are some of the scientist that I admire first one is Albert Einstein developed the special and general theories of relativity. In 1921, he won the Nobel Prize for physics for his explanation of the photoelectric effect. Einstein is generally considered the most influential physicist of the 20th century. Another one is Gorge Washington Carver; Carver was born into slavery in Diamond, Missouri, around 1864. The exact year and date of his birth are unknown. Carver went on to become one of the most prominent scientists and inventors of his time, as well as a teacher at the Tuskegee Institute. Carver devised over 100 products using one of these crops the peanut including dyes, plastics and gasoline. Since I took this course science had made me think about my life a lot Science has improved my life in many ways. First, it's given me a safe and reliable means of controlling my reproductive choices. It's improved my understanding of the nutritional needs of my body and what I feed my daughter. Science has provided many of the modern day conveniences that have become essential to my life like electricity, car, and wireless devices.......

...remained largely unaddressed for the previous four decades. Likewise, the ‘Lokpal’ bill, currently so fi ercely debated, has a long and faltering ancestry in Indian politics. Between 1969 and 1998, six separate Lokpal bills have been passed in India, only to lapse with the dissolution of parliament. What the historical farce of the Lokpal bills suggests is that the consistency with which independent enquiries diagnose and prescribe against political corruption in India, is matched only by the uniformity 53 with which their activities are ignored or obfuscated by the parliament. The fate of proposals directed more specifi cally at fl agrantly criminal acts of political corruption is worse still. Most recently, the 2010 background paper on electoral reforms prepared by the Indian Election Commission has revisited two unheeded recommendations with which to combat the criminalisation of Indian politics, both of which were fi rst proposed in 2004. The Commission advises that prospective candidates for the lower house of the Indian parliament be required to declare all previous convictions, pending criminal cases and assets prior to standing, and suggests that the withholding of such information should be made punishable by a minimum of two years imprisonment. Moreover, the commission recommends disqualifi cation for all candidates against whom charges have been brought at least six months prior to election for the most serious category of offences.......

These safeguards, while important, are only truly effective as part of an overall information security management system. The integration of existing security technologies and processes into a cohesive framework for security management will ultimately reduce inefficiencies and redundancy and ensure the manageability of those solutions. A comprehensive security program should contain the proper balance between people, processes and technology to effectively manage risk with minimal impact on normal business operations. In order to build an appropriate information security program, an organization should assess and define their specific security requirements, design a solution that meets those unique requirements, deploy the necessary policies, technology and procedures, and continuously maintain, adapt and improve that solution. An organization’s overall security strategy will provide a framework for defining those elements necessary in building and maintaining a sound security management program. Strategic planning can take many forms, but the end result should yield a documented approach for achieving goals set within......

...A New Design Concept of Optical Fibers to Reduce Non Linearity and Bend loss in Optical Networks REENA HARNAL AND SAURAV DUTTA E-2, Sterlite Technologies Ltd, MIDC, Aurangabad, India reena.harnal@sterlite.com, dutta_s@sterlite.com Abstract: Fiber with an Enhanced value of SBS threshold and low macro bend Loss is presented in this paper. The fiber has a SBS threshold value greater than 12 dBm and complies G.657A ITU-T specification for Bend loss. It can be used as a single line fiber in Optical networks. 1. INTRODUCTION Stimulated Brillouin scattering is a dominant nonlinear process in optical networks. In long haul transmission systems, it degrades the output signal once input power reaches above a certain threshold [1]. In FTTH networks bend loss is the main concern because of the stringent indoor wiring requirements. Therefore there is a requirement of an optical fiber, which has an enhanced SBS threshold value and improved bend performance. Such a fiber can be used in different parts of the optical network, in long haul and access networks, as a single line fiber. 2. STIMULATED BRILLOUIN SCATERRING AND BEND LOSS Stimulated Brillouin scattering and Bend loss are the two fundamental effects which effect the signal transmission in optical networks. The below sections describes the principle behind Stimulated brillouin scattering and Bend loss. 2.1 Stimulated Brillouin scattering Scattering is a general physical process whereby some form of......
