Taylor in his work Primitive Culture: “Culture or civilization…is that complex whole which includes knowledge, belief, art, morals, law, customs, and other capabilities acquired by man as a member of society.” (Atafori).

Fibers and Seketal Muscles

- Each skeletal muscle is composed of bundles of myofibrils. The muscle fibers are composed of units called Sarcomeres. A sarcomere is a a series of thick and thin filaments that overlap longitunially. Where a sacromere meets its neighboring sarcomere, it is called the “z-line” Repeating units of sarcomeres account for the unique banding pattern that is seen in striated muscles. The thick filament in the sarcomere makes up the “A band”. This is in the center of the sarcomere. These thick filaments are made up of myosin....   [tags: sarcomere, myofibrils]

The White Man's Fear Depicted in Cry, the Beloved Country by Alan Paton

- The time of the 1940’s in South Africa was defined by racial oppression of the native inhabitants of the country by the Dutch Boers, also known as the Afrikaners. These people were the demographic minority yet also the political majority. They executed almost complete control over the lives of the natives through asinine rules and harsh punishments.

Function and Structure of Hemoglobin and Myoglobin

- Myoglobin consist of single polypeptide chain that made up of 153 amino acid and ahs a size of 18 kDa. Its three-dimensional structure was first determined by X-ray crystallography by John Kendrew in 1957. Myoglobin is a typical globular protein in that it is a highly folded compact structure with most of the hydrophobic amino acid residues buried in the interior and many of the polar residues on the surface. X-ray crystallography revealed that the single polypeptide chain of myoglobin consist of entirely of eight (labelled A-H) alpha-helical....   [tags: Biology]

Cause and Effect According to Hume

- Hume starts to have skeptical doubts about the operations of understanding. He says there are two types of human understanding (only one of them concerns his inquiry into what we know to be true or certain). Hume says that all of the faculties of human reasoning are divided into two kinds; relations of ideas and matters of fact. Relations of Ideas are knowledge that is found of the sciences or mathematics. They are required without experience and can be proved without experience, for example, the Pythagorean Theorem....   [tags: philosophical analysis]

The Virulent Factors of Bordetella Pertusis: The Whooping Cough

- Globally, whooping cough continues as an infection of public health concern despite the extensive vaccination and control strategies (Cherry J.D Heininger, 2004). The disease is alarmingly increasing in adolescents and adults, who consequently transmit it to infants. The increase has been attributed to: waning vaccine-induced immunity, increased recognition, changing in circulating strains, improved methods of surveillance and diagnosis of the illness. However, major public health concerns arise from this waning immunity as it is attributed to the increased whooping cough cases in adolescents and adults....   [tags: cough, vaccination, strategies, disease, infants]

Cause and Effect in David Hume’s An Enquiry Concerning Human Understanding

- Cause and Effect in David Hume’s An Enquiry Concerning Human Understanding In An Enquiry Concerning Human Understanding, David Hume states, “there is not, in any single, particular instance of cause and effect, any thing which can suggest the idea of power or necessary connexion” (Hume, 1993: 41). Hume establishes in section II that all ideas originate from impressions that employ the senses (11). Therefore, in order for there to be an idea of power or “necessary connexion,” there must be impressions of this connection present in single instances of cause and effect; if there are no such impressions, then there cannot be an idea of “necessary connexion” (52)....   [tags: Philosophy Religion Essays]

Creating a Robot to Tie a Knot with Lego Mindstorm

- Abstract The point of building this robot was to have it successfully complete and tie a knot. The original idea was to have the robot tie knots creating a bracelet. Unfortunately, the process of tying a knot alone was too much work to try and move on to an entire bracelet. I had neither the time nor the insight to build a flexible and usable 'arm.' I tested and modified a design from the Lego Mindstorms book, but found that I could neither open nor close the hand. I continued to further modify the design to be able to grab and let go of string but the result was extremely bulky....   [tags: Robotics]

Enzyme Enzymes And Its Effect On The Transition State Of A Chemical Reaction

- Enzymes are biological macromolecule that acts as catalysts and increase the rate of a chemical reaction. Without enzymes, life, as we know about it, would not exist. Enzymes function by deceasing the activation energy and stabilizing the transition state of a chemical reaction without altering the thermodynamic of reaction (#1 Boyer). At the molecular level, enzymes catalyze these reactions by binding to the substrate or reactants to form an enzyme-substrate complex. The reaction takes place while the substrate is bound to the enzyme and converting the substrate to the new product....   [tags: Enzyme, Enzyme inhibitor, Catalysis]
