Primary Pacemaker Cells - Primary pacemaker cells located in the central region of the sinoatrial node (SA node) undergo spontaneous diastolic depolarization, which ultimately triggers the action potential (AP) upstroke.

Career Passports and Career Portfolios - Career Passports and Career Portfolios Portfolios have long been used in some professions to showcase professional work and skill. In education, portfolios have also been used for assessment, including self-assessment (Lankes 1995; Pond et al. 1998). Both career portfolios and career passports reflect this dual focus—students assess themselves in the process of developing a product, and the resulting product showcases and documents their experiences and skills. A distinction is sometimes drawn between a portfolio as developmental and a passport as summative (Bridging the Gap 1993)....   [tags: Career Passports Portfolios Essays]

A Human Transporter Protein that Mediates the Final Excretion Step for Toxic Organic Cations - Introduction The kidney is an excretory organ that filters wastes from blood and excretes them as urine. Blood plasma filtration occurs at the glomerulus, which is a network of capillaries. Transporters are specialized proteins located in the membranes of the nephron. There are different concentrations of transporters located at various regions of the nephron. For instance, the proximal tubule retains most of the sodium transporters.

WIN and Abortion - WIN and Abortion It stands to reason that abortionists, as a whole, commit malpractice more often than doctors practicing legitimate medicine, because the industry is largely unregulated. Inspections of abortion facilities after a patient death typically reveal horrific health and safety violations. Patients are herded in and out and rarely are seen, much less examined, by the doctor before the abortion begins. The patient's medical history and any health problems that might influence treatment are known only to the extent the patient is able or willing to reveal this information on an intake form....   [tags: Argumentative Persuasive Topics] 632 words

Biography of TS Eliot - Thomas Stearns Eliot was born on September 26, 1888, in St. Louis, Missouri, the seventh and last child of Henry Ware Eliot, a brick manufacturer, and Charlotte (Stearns) Eliot, who was active in social reform and was herself a not-untalented poet. Both parents were descended from families that had emigrated from England to Massachusetts in the seventeenth century. William Greenleaf Eliot, the poet's paternal grandfather, had, after his graduation from Harvard in the 1830s, moved to St. Louis, where he became a Unitarian minister, but the New England connection was closely maintained--especially, during Eliot's youth, through the family's summer home on the Atlantic coast in Gloucester, Massachusetts....   [tags: Biography, Poets, Biographical Essay] 1595 words

Personal Narrative: Facing My Demons - It is inevitable that everyone’s high school experience will be different.

The Role of "Permission" in the Trial of Joan of Arc - Today Joan of Arc is known primarily as a religious martyr, but what popular culture often forgets is how tightly religion and politics intertwined in her story. Her decision to raise an army and ensure that Charles VII was placed on the French throne was motivated by religious devotion, but making sure the mission succeeded required military and political savvy, two qualities that tend to mix poorly with religious piety. The longer Joan spent in the spotlight, the more her religious vocation became muddled with political concerns....   [tags: French History]
