The Development of Ground and Air Transport - A. The development of ground transport In old days, before the wheel invention (pre-3000 B.C) people normally were carried the sick and wounded on the shoulder between two men or backs of friends or animals(MacDonald & Miller, 1989). Forced transports were used for those with mental disorders in ancient time, however, one of the earliest uses of the wheel for patient transportation was constructed (circa 900 A.D.) by Anglo-Saxon, so they called it the Anglo-Saxon wagon hammock(Bell, 2009). This hammock was placed between two poles raised on a four wheeled platform(MacDonald & Miller, 1989)....   [tags: Transportation ]

Vesicle Traffic and Cellular Transport - The process of cellular transport is a concept we have all learned during our high school biology classes. In a eukaryotic cell, there are two types of cellular transport. Passive transport does not utilize ATP, or adenosine triphosphate, to move molecules or waste. Instead, it uses the process of diffusion, in which substances move between the plasma membrane of the cell from high concentration of the substance to low concentration. The substances that are usually moved are small, uncharged molecules, such as carbon dioxide....   [tags: exocytosis, endocytosis, Rothman, Sheckman]

Transport Layer Security and Secure Shell - The fundamental reason why security protocols are implemented in networks is simple – to protect data as it traverses the network. The mechanism associated with protecting data on its travels is called cryptography. This particular mechanism employs algorithms which encrypt data so that hackers are prevented from easily intercepting the data. Cryptography operates in tandem with a group of protocols which help to control the passing of data between network devices. Therefore, security protocols are a vital component in networks in order to increase data security and without them security would be compromised (Linn, 2014)....   [tags: security protocols ]
