Ch.8 Into The Jungle: “Sickle-Cell Safari”

Chapter Questions 1) How did Tony Allison’s early life experiences in Kenya prepare him to make the discovery of the sickle cell-malaria link? * As a young child, Tony Allison was interested in science. On school holiday’s Tony would take trips with a family friend to observe African birds and when he became a teenager, he had the opportunity to study artifacts of “Elmenteitan” culture. Unfortunately, when he was about ten years old, Tony Allison contracted malaria. While studying at Oxford University, Allison connected malaria with the location in which he contracted it. Through his knowledge of how malaria is contracted and the location of which he caught the disease, Allison was able to create a prediction about the location in which malaria is mostly contracted. Having the location and studying the blood of the people who lived in certain areas, he realized that people who have sickled blood cells are more likely to contract the disease. Also, Tony pieced together that there was a possibility that the HbS allele, in heterozygotes for sickle cell anemia, aided in some degree of resistance to malaria. Without his early life experience of being diagnosed with malaria and without his background knowledge of Africa, Tony Allison may have had a more difficult time trying to discover the connection between sickle cells and malaria.

2) What makes the sickle-cell mutation a balanced polymorphism? * The sickle cell mutation is an example of balanced polymorphism because the AS heterozygotes have an advantage over either SS homozygote. Allison discovered that 26% more of heterozygote children than homozygote children reached adulthood, but only about 1/3 of the homozygotes were able to reach adulthood. Carroll describes this selective advantage as…...

Critique of English Langguage

...Marisa Barbera Mrs. Rosenwasser AP English 3/13/12 A Critique of the Use of Language For many, language represents a unifying force between people. For instance, a man and a woman are sitting on a bus in Barcelona; complete and total strangers just sitting. The man is a college graduate from Argentina, the women a local school teacher. They have absolutely nothing in common except for the fact that they both speak Spanish. The man and woman ultimately strike up a conversation about the current political scandal and before they know it, they find themselves walking down an aisle ready to say “I do.” Language is what allowed these people to go from mere strangers to husband and wife. Language is what brings people together. From sharing a secret with a kindred spirit to sitting around the table saying grace, language is what allows individuals to relate with others, without which we would all be running around as mutes. The English language today has been degraded. Although the introduction of new words on one hand serves to expand our constantly growing language, has on the other hand disastrous effects that digress a language history has worked so hard to beautify. Today I walk down the hallways during school and hear sentences like, “I’m dumb hungry” and “Yo I was so tight!” Loosely translated “I’m dumb hungry” could have a variety of meanings but the most commonly understood would be somewhere along the lines of “I’m very hungry.” Loosely translated,......

Business

...them about my plan to enroll in college for an Associate’s in Business Management after being out of school for over 20 years. After hearing their thoughts about the plan I knew that I was making a good decision by choosing online classes because I would still be able to hold my household and part-time babysitting job down without a lot of hassle. If I had used some of the steps in the text, I honestly believe that the results would have been the same because all I really needed was motivation, love, and support from my family. Even though there has been a lot of bumps in the road and I am sure there will be more since I am now pursuing my Bachelor’s but it has and will be worth it all. After researching I found one article by Scala, Marisa A. which I think touched on the contents of my paper. The article talked about participation motives and experiences of older adults in an undergraduate classroom, it also talked about difficulties faced by older adults retuning to classrooms. There were different variables about returning to school, like the positive aspects, difficulties that could be faced, and many others that were discussed in the article. I found it to be very informative....

Busse Place

...In the Harvard Business School case, “Busse Place,” Collins Properties realized their investment property, Busse Place, was not meeting their revenue projections and needed to determine an appropriate course of action. Bill Fairchild, the Vice President of Asset Management at Collins Properties, would have to decide whether to continue to fund the project, attempt to restructure their CMBS loan, or default on the project altogether. Prior to making this decision his leasing agent, Marisa Sanchez, would have to assess the likelihood of being able to attain new tenants, and determine what rates and terms to offer each, then Fairchild could create a new pro forma analysis, to use as reference when making his ultimate decision as to which course of action to take. Sanchez had recently provided proposals to three prospective tenants. The first, Northwestern Trust Company, was the largest prospect. Securing Northwestern Trust Company would be crucial to the overall success of Busse Place, as they would occupy approximately 16% of the total rentable space, increasing the occupancy rate to 54%. Based on Sanchez’s assumptions regarding the current market conditions, she believed the average net present value of rent for the two newest tenants at Busse Place, was $2.03 higher than those from 1500 Higgens Rd. and $6.07 higher than those from Two Schuamberg Place. Additionally, Sanchez received information that her initial offer to Northwestern Trust Company was $1 to......

Care Study

...(Felton 2009).  If the patient continues with their diet and their oral hygiene, he can develop periodontal disease. Risk factors associated with periodontal disease is the build of bacterial plaque, however, systematic conditions such as tobacco use, osteoporosis, prescribed drugs are also the other causes. When plaque has accumulated around the gingival margins of the teeth, the gingiva will become inflamed and the first stage of periodontal disease called gingivitis will develop. At a later stage, when gingivitis deteriots, chronic gingivitis is developed. The toxins formed from the bacterial build up, gradually accumulate within the false pockets and begin soaking into the gingival tissues (Shiffer 2008). Armitage (1999) cited in Dibart & Dietrich (2010) describes periodontal disease as an inflammatory condition where the structure of the dentition is severely affected. He explains when the disease is initiated, the collagen fibres are no longer attached to the root surfaces; there are clear movements of the apical pockets of epithelium as well as the formation of deep periodontal pockets. Armitage (1999) clarifies that the periodontal ligaments and its supporting tissues are both destroyed and thus a true pocket is created. He explains further that the loss of attachment leads to the formation of deeper pockets allowing more plaque and calculus to be building up. He finalises his point by amplifying that the toxins present attack the alveolar bone and destroy the......

Gay Movie Characters

...aired out within the first episode and so is his very close relationship with his best friend, Grace Adler. They dated in college until Will came out of the closet, and within the first season Will asks Grace to move in. Keep in mind that Will is depicting a male homosexual living in NYC. In order to balance with Will’s serious and what some might think of as not-so-gay personality, Grace who works as an interior decorator, is very humorous and fun. The focus of the show is on these two best friends, whom beside the fact that Will is gay, are the perfect “couple”(Connolly 288). “Will and Grace” is one of the first prime-time television series on NBC with an openly gay character, yet never portrays the true-life struggles of same sex couples. Marisa Connolly investigates the show’s success and the relationship between the two lead characters in her short essay, “Homosexuality on Television”. Connolly mentions that unlike the show “Ellen” staring Ellen Degeneres, homosexuality is never preached on “Will and Grace” but on the contrary shown as a lifestyle. A lot of emphasis was placed on Ellen’s coming out in the show, according to TV critics, making the show “too political and didactic” (Connolly 288). On the other hand, Will’s sexuality is less in-your-face and more heterosexual, thus creating a comfortable show for everyone to watch. This is what also helped the show go mainstream and become widely popular. 2 In early episodes Will is shown as to having problems with his......

Motivation Plan

...negative impact to the customers. It is imperative that there be motivational plan in place to keep the division on the right path. Each employee will have weighted goals, competencies and an annual review to see the progress each have accomplished. The annual review grading will be based on performances, visuals and self-employee rating along with the project manager’s review. While each employee will have the same goals and competencies how each employee is motivated and satisfied is different from one another due to attitudes, emotions, personalities and values. All of these attributes will be taken into consideration when developing a team motivation plan. Four out of Five employees are alike in many ways. Janine, Marisa, Michael and Tiffany are very detailed oriented, however due to each not liking change, and wanting to know the exact structure or process of how the work is to be completed a challenge needs to be set forth with small goals so that each person feels an accomplishment. Within these small goals there should be small rewards whether it is recognition of some sort, or having a small competition between team members to see who completes the goals within requirements. Motivation does not always have to be fueled by money, pats on the back, gift cards or a company picnic can be reward enough. Motivation and performance needs to be a self-gratifying experience otherwise it would get expensive to motivate employee (Robbins & Judge, 2013).......

Marathon

...Old Dog, New Trick When my daughter, Marisa turned eleven, a friend at school told her about an event the YMCA was sponsoring over the summer called, “Kids can do 26.2”. It was to promote kids staying active during the summer. I helped her train and get ready for the race for ten weeks. The day before the race, we went to the Amory to pick up her bib and t shirt. The armory was a flurry of activity with sports, snack and other race vendors. I saw a slim, very fit woman setting up a booth. I picked up one of the pamphlets she laid out on the table. “Moms in Motion” it said. “Hi,” she said extending her hand toward me. “I’m Deb. Are you a runner?” I smiled and shook my head. “No, I’m too old to start that”. She laughed. “You’re never too old to start something new!” I listened intently as she spoke about the “Moms” and I have to admit that secretly, I wanted to try it. Deb asked me where I lived and then proceeded to tell me that there was a new leader who wanted to start a team in Webster. She wrote down all the information and handed me back the pamphlet. The next morning, my husband, son, daughter and I left for Frontier Field. “Are you nervous?” I asked her. “No way”, she replied. I’m excited!” “You’ll do great!” My husband told her. Frontier Field was mobbed. Kids and parents were everywhere. The race atmosphere was exhilarating. There was music, spectators, and other vendors. There was an announcement that the race was about to start. We...

Still in the Gilded Age

...is that the word “Frog” is capitalized, possibly meaning that she is referring to a specific event or person. This is further supported when you link it together with the descriptor “public” which was stated right before “Frog.” I believe that this is Dickinson’s way of using symbolism to convey her hidden message; she sees the public world as being overly loud and fake. The vociferous Somebodies act merry and without care, using the misleading noise as a mask to hide their problems underneath. Ultimately, the poem is Dickinson commenting that she would rather be unknown (a Nobody) and be true to herself then be publicly known (a Somebody) and be forced to hide her problems under a gilded mask. In “An essay on “My Papa's Waltz,”” Marisa Anne Pagnattaro suggests that the poem is describing a fond memory of horseplay between the child and his father. To support her reasoning, she notes certain informalities present in story that detract from the negative wording seen in the poem. One such example is when she comments that, “The use of the formal term “mother” stands in sharp contrast to the much more familiar term “Papa.”” (par. 5), attributing the difference to a sense of closeness with the father. She also focuses on the waltz-like rhythm of the wording, “The poem begins with a strong first beat, followed by two lighter beats, with the second of these being an upbeat “pushing” into the new first beat. More simply stated, the rhythm is a repetition of : ONE two three......
