Trying to get a better idea on how to study for my microbiology and anatomy physiology class. I found this website helpful in giving me some ideas on how to do so.
We connected over email. Her bag was in a bus near the finish line and she hasn’t been able to get it. Grateful she is ok and thinking and praying for those who were there.
Let’s get it done.
Baker’s yeast, commonly used to make beer and bread, can be engineered to produce a key ingredient for malaria drugs, according to researchers who say the method offers a new way to boost needed supplies.
Who knew a genetically revised form of Baker’s yeast was the key to unlocking the treatment of Malaria. Baker’s yeast is commonly used for bread and beer and has been modified to produce a key component in treating Malaria, artemisinic acid. In the past pharmaceutical companies have relied on the sweet woodworm tree to harvest this acid, but haven’t been able to get a high enough production from them since it’s population has fluctuated. By genetically modifying yeast and making it able to be produce high yields of artemisinic acid the global need for Malaria drugs can be met. It’s amazing what a little Baker’s yeast can do.
Remove all the space within the atoms making up the human body, and every person that’s ever lived would fit inside a baseball.
Great quote about atoms and relating it to baseball.
Dr Ben Goldacre, the author of Bad Pharma, who has written extensively about autism and vaccination, says: “Health scares are like toothpaste: once they’re out, it’s very hard to get them back in the tube. They catch fire fast, because they’re so seductive to journalists. And they don’t go away, because once you’ve planted fear and doubt in the mind, people become almost superstitious. Even doctors I know feel worried about MMR, knowing it’s irrational.”
Roger Ebert will be missed.
“The technical challenges steam from the fact that men produce sperm at a rate of more than 1,000 per second, while women produce one egg a month.”
Some great points about day light savings time. Great writing to help me understand what and why we should continue with it.
Usually, things are done the way they’re done for good reasons. But sometimes, they’re only done that way because nobody has questioned it recently.
