Throughout this entry, one of the most discussed dictionaries was Webster’s dictionaries, which were published by a man named Noah Webster. However, when Webster had passed away in 1843 his dictionary was takeover and edited through a man by the name of Philip Gove. Gove came along to add thousands of different words that had seemed to be used more frequently than the words which he found to have died off in the past decade or so. What made Webster 's dictionary so extraordinary wasn 't the amount of words that the dictionary composed of or the complexity of the words themselves, but instead on how modernized the linguistics and the words of the dictionary were, mainly because of the works of Gove.

Fun fact the word paleontology was not even invented until 1822 by the editor of a scientific journal whose name is unknown. The timeline of fossils is much more accurate with all the advanced technology of the 21st century. Dating techniques used by scientist become more and more accurate the more they are developed.
1. INTRODUCTION Change is undoubtedly unavoidable for today’s organizations and likely to appear in increasing rates in the future (Tetenbaum, 1998, Armenakis & Harris, 2009). Therefore it is not surprising that organizational research has addressed this topic repeatedly over the last decades, trying to find ways that help organizations in overcoming the obstacles during the change process. Still, looking at the success rate of organizational change reveals a sad picture. In 2000, Beer and Nohria estimated that out of all change initiatives, 70% are bound to fail, thereby mostly attributing failure to the rush, in which organizations want to make change happen.
The Revolutionary War had required the Artillery Corp to enlist over 7,000 artillerymen split into four regiments. The country’s economic state reduced the artillery regiments from four to one and later down to only twenty-five privates.

James McGill 's fantasy was getting steam, in spite of the fact that it would take an additional six years to settle the case with Francis Desrivières, and inward squabbling would bring about significantly assist delays. At last, on September 6, 1843, twenty understudies recorded into the new Arts Building. It was McGill College 's first day of classes, a noteworthy minute thirty years really taking
The tragic events that took place on March of 1770 only took a few hours to progress, but the Boston Massacre is better understood in combination of several historic events. Beginning with a conflict with the British soldiers and finishing with the demise of five colonists, the events of the Boston Massacre took several years to get to.

The average waiting time for a lung transplant, however, is two years. Many times the person waiting for a new lung develops further complications and/or they die before getting the long. The survival rate of lung transplant is about 50% (How Is Cystic Fibrosis Treated?, n.d.). The most recent article that I found on CF from PubMed was published in February of 2016 and titled “Design of Novel Aminoglycoside Derivatives with Enhanced Suppression of Diseases-Causing Nonsense Mutations.” Although the article was not solely about CF, it discussed how different nonsense DNA-constructs underling the genetic diseases such as cystic fibrosis. I choose this disorder because a child whom I oversaw in my clinical rounds had this disease and I wanted to know more about it and how it would affect his quality of
