The purpose of the Sheep Heart Dissection lab was to take a look at the heart's anatomy and all the parts that it consists of. This lab helped us learn how the heart is able to function, and gave us a hands on look at what a real heart looks and feels like. I worked on this lab with Jose, and Alex. We completed the procedure in one day of class, and had the questions completed by the second.
Thomas Henry Huxley, an English biologist who was known for his Darwin’s Bulldog theory based on Charles Darwin’s evolution theory, once said, “ It is because the body is a machine that education is possible. Education is the formation of habits, a super-inducing of an artificial organization upon the natural organization of the body.” Huxley explains that because of our body, and how it works, humans have been able to find new studies. Huxley’s ideas are similarly seen in the book Stiff, by Mary Roach, which shows the readers that donating one's body involves more than just surgeons removing organs and throwing away a body. Roach shows that donating a body helps enhance further education, newer technology, and greater discoveries.

Due October 19th, 2015 Erin Gibbs: 200270053 Dr. Andrew Cameron Bio 222 Written Assignment 1 1. Health officials realized that the mysterious illness was not caused by a bacterium because the pathogen would be identified quickly in comparison to a virus, which is more complicated (CBC, 2013). 2. It was hard to identify the infectious agent because SARS presented as flu-like symptoms with a rapid onset and is similar to the common flu (CBC, 2013). People who had other underlying health problems made it difficult to identify symptoms of SARS because it made it hard to differentiate (CDC, 2013).
Symbiotic Relationships Symbiotic Relationships describes close interactions between two or more different species. Many organisms are involved in symbiotic relationships because this interaction provides benefits to both species. However, there are types of symbiosis that are not beneficial and may in fact harm one or both of the species. Mutualism Mutualism occurs when both species benefit from the interaction. For example Madison is a scholar that always finds the time to make note cards that can be utilized in the quizzes and tests that are taken in Mr. Popes Biology class.
A cube seen from only one side is a square. I have spent twelve years of my life in the same institution and had a small but well-loved group of friends. In contrast, a close friend of mine attended three different schools in the same time, and I saw how that affected him, he was more social, friendly and empathetic. Looking back I now realize that I need to learn how to be more outgoing to better my communication skills as life presents us new challenges and working well with others is an integral part to solving them. I came to the United States to both see the world from another perspective and reflect upon the different ideologies and thought processes that have developed in the presence of such a great number of differing cultures.
Personal Sacrifices From the moment I was born I was exposed to hospitals and the seemingly scholarly topic of medicine. Features such as bright lights down every hallway, floors so clean that I swore I could see my reflection, and people in white lab coats wandering about intrigued me. Thankfully, I almost never visit hospitals or clinics for more than just an annual physical, but when I need help understanding my body and why it decides to do what it does, it helps to know that I can turn to someone who is educated in that area: Dr. Sieglinde Peterson. Peterson specializes in Family Medicine and currently practices at Fairview Clinics in Chisago City, MN. If you are looking for a quality doctor she is an excellent choice!
I took my first AP class during my sophomore year. The class was AP Biology which was incredibly difficult, but with hard work I was able to succeed. The year after I decided to enroll in AP Chemistry. I thought that if I was able to succeed in Biology, I would have no problem succeeding in Chemistry. The first week of junior year arrived along with AP Chemistry.
Ever since I can remember, I have had an interest in science. As a young child, I read anatomy books to learn about human physiology in my pastime. As I grew older, I watched instructional videos of procedures that physicians perform on patients that I used as an educational tool. The books and videos fascinated and motivated me to pursue a career in medicine. The thought of me becoming a doctor and attending to the needs of others is gratifying.
