Ecosystems are something we never think about. We let nature take over it’s way of life. What we don’t realize is that these systems could be corrupt by anything at any given time. This is, unfortunately, an issue in many places, but there is one place in particular. The Everglades, located in Florida. Burmese Pythons are overpopulating The Everglades, causing many effects on the ecosystem. This is affecting the local animals, the people, and the snakes themselves.
Chris Van Allsburg shifts the line between fantasy and reality. Peter and Judy find themselves to be very bored at home until they came across a board game that sent them through the most exciting and bizarre adventure of their lives. Jumanji is the name of the game that eventually comes to life when they find a lion under the bed, monkeys in the kitchen and rinos charging through the living room. I liked the idea that Chris Van Allsburg uses a child’s fear of something coming to life and coming after them it makes the story surreal. The illustrations make the story intense and exciting at the same time the animals come to life. Children of all ages would be drawn immediately to the drawings and intense action, however younger readers can think and talk about the characters and images but might be drawn back by the animals terrorizing the children in the book.

Light is one of the most essential substance in the universe. There are many different ways to interpret light. Light can be the physical substance that travels super fast throughout the galaxy or it can be shown in acts of kindness. It can be depicted in a painting or can be shown in all of the colors of the Earth. Many stargazers (astronomers) look into the sky at night and see the beauty and power of the stars. Others like to observe the actions of certain people and see how much good in the world they are doing. When doing these acts of kindness, it makes them seem so much more fun to be around. I personally enjoy being around people who are nice and are always smiling. It makes me feel happy inside. They make
Sally is a seven-year-old girl, who stays after school, because her mother works. While at the the after school program Sally’s teacher Mrs. Friend saw how she was sad and bored.

After sometime, Sally was all grown up and had to be put in a senior center. One day the senior center went to the park, for a special program. Once Sally was at the park and found out what she was doing, she became supper excited. She was there to participate in Jigsaws for the Jumpy. She was wheeled to a table and began putting a puzzle together; this brought back so many memories and emotions of when she was a kid. I told you this story, to show you what could happen to people who come to this program. Furthermore, this story was emotional, but putting puzzles together are so much more. Jigsaws for the Jumpy is a nonprofit and it is a free community group project that helps people, who are eager, to learn more about art while putting a puzzle together. You are probably wondering why putting a puzzle and put together helps people appreciate art more. The answer to that
While doing my observations at target one of the video games that was examine was a Nintendo 3DS Pokémon: Omega Ruby. This game is packaged with a big action figure in the front of the package. It also has fire coming from the background. The fire represents that the action figure is a warrior or a leader. The task that elementary age students will have to perform is good sensorimotor skills. The reason that they need to use this task is because this will help them develop problem solving skills. In the game problem solving will be effective because you have certain task to complete. This game is connected to Jean Paiget’s cognitive development because from the game a child can development strategy development. It also helps with their development
Caenorhabditis elegans are androdioecious species consisting of males and self-fertilizing hermaphrodites. Males in nature are typically rare, although if given the chance they will successfully mate with hermaphrodites (Murray 2011). These organisms are often used as model organisms due to its simple anatomy along with easily identified characteristics. . It has a short lifespan, therefore analyzing the life span of several generations can be carried out in a short period of time and provide a better understanding of biological processes, such as gene regulation and sex determination(Padilla 2014). The purpose of this experiment is to determine the pattern of inheritance between a cross of mutant C.elegans with a long
The debate about homosexuality provokes controversy not only among religious and political parties, but also within the scientific community. To put it simply, a Nature versus Nurture discourse has come into play. Scientists argue whether homosexuality arises from genes or environmental factors. Scientists supporting each side of the argument both have sufficient evidence to support their claims. However, researchers at New York University have reached a new breakthrough that supports the idea that homosexuality stems from genetic information through studying a specific species of roundworm.
“In 1775, Colonel Christopher Gadsden was in Philadelphia representing his home colony of South Carolina at the Continental Congress and presented this new naval flag to the Congress. It became the first flag used by the sea-going soldiers who eventually would become the United States Marines.” (http://www.loeser.us/flags/revolution.html)
Unhooking the Hookworm was a film released by the International Health Division of the Rockefeller foundation in the hopes of reducing the burden of Hookworm disease in the United States and abroad. It is a silent film about 10 minutes long, with intermittent slides containing english text. The goal of these slides is to explain how to recognize, prevent and treat hookworm disease. It follows the story of a young boy in the American South who runs barefooted around his outhouse and picks up hookworm. He is brought to a doctor by his father, where the doctor gives him medicine and sends him on his way. The film’s success in America meant “Copies were distributed to Australia, Borneo, China, Colombia, Dutch Guiana, Egypt, India, Jamaica...etc” (Rockarch.org) However, the movie was only translated into “Spanish, French, and Portuguese” (Rockarch.org), notably, many of the countries it was sent to speak languages other than the four it was presented in. Unhooking the Hookworm is important because it demonstrates a representative lack of foresight by Western medical professionals in the exportation of their medical techniques abroad. The familiar sights of America lose their context, and the details of the movie are lost when the audience is assumed
