The effects of a lie or lies always seem to lead to a path of extreme detriment. Although I have experienced both sides of a lie I often wonder if the reasoning behind lying is always just. Do people lie to protect. Or is a lie an extension of deceit. These are questions that many people can relate and reflect on because we have all been lied to. Whether you were told white lies about the Easter bunny and Santa Claus or someone lied to you about their whereabouts any false statement is quite simply a lie....   [tags: the power of words] 802 words

Anatomy of a Hipster - Over time, social group labels tend to mutate from their original interpretation, due to societal evolution. The hipster is no exception, as it originally referred to 1940s Bebop Jazz enthusiasts. Hipsters has since become the term referencing pretentious rich kids, attempting to recreate a sense of underground-ness; whether it be music or style-related. However, hipsters of today differ from the former in the sense that their actions are fueled solely by effort, rather than sheer interest of being outlandish and chic concurrently with music and style....   [tags: Sociology ]

The True Relationship Between Taste and Smell - Introduction It has been alleged that the perception of flavor and aroma are “derived from the senses of chemical irritation, taste and smell” (Rawson, 2003). Collectively, these senses constitute what has been termed chemosensation, even though these sensory systems are supposedly very different in their physiology and anatomy. Nevertheless, they do have the ability to “regenerate, and their noted susceptibility to aging and age associated diseases” (Rawson, 2003).

The Respiratory System - The respiratory system is a complex organ structure of the human body anatomy, and the primary purpose of this system is to supply the blood with oxygen in order for the blood vessels to carry the precious gaseous element to all parts of the body to accomplish cell respiration. The respiratory system completes this important function of breathing throughout inspiration. In the breathing process inhaling oxygen is essential for cells to metabolize nutrients and carry out some other tasks, but it must occur simultaneously with exhaling when the carbon dioxide is excreted, this exchange of gases is the respiratory system's means of getting oxygen to the blood (McGowan, Jefferies & Turley, 2004)...   [tags: Biology, Anatomy] 1528 words

Anatomy and Disorder of the Outer Ear - Hearing is not essential for all communication, but that is not to say that it isn’t important. When infants hear those in their social environment speaking, they are able to pick up on a variety of sounds that they can’t quite grasp the meaning of yet. The structures of the ear help them collect these sounds that they hear from their family or peers and make connections, eventually developing a sense of the various aspects of speech and language. The outer ear, including the pinna and the external auditory meatus, are essential in collecting and transferring sound to the rest of the aural cavities....   [tags: Hearing, Communication, Social Environment]

This is considered to be an Upper motor neuron. These fibers travel through the brain via the internal capsule until they get to the lower portion of the medulla oblongata. At this point, the neuron crosses over to the other side of the body.

The process of cyclically moving air in and out of the lungs so alveolar air that has given up oxygen and picked up carbon dioxide can be exchanged for fresh air from the atmosphere. Ventilation is accomplished from the system alternately shifting the direction of the pressure gradient for airflow between the atmosphere and the alveoli through the expansion and recoiling of the lungs.
