The Nutria is a large rodent and its native habitat is South America. They are predominantly found in rivers, marshes that are fresh, several types of wetlands, and on some occasion’s swamps. Nutrias were imported to the United States because of their fur. They were eventually released into the environment and are reported to have spread to many parts of Maryland (Kendrot). These animals are detrimental to the marshes in Maryland, and need to be prevented from spreading more before the damage done becomes irreversible.
Llamas maintain their homeostasis in similar ways as the rest of the mammals. Llamas have thick fur made up of coarse guard hair on the top layer, and short wavy fiber hair in the bottom layer. This prevents them from being cold in harsh weathers. Llamas have more red blood cells that most mammals so that they can adapt to higher altitudes. They also have bigger lungs which means more space and capacity in their lungs which gives them a bigger intake of breath.
This article stood out to me because I used to want to be a Paleontologist and I am also a big fan of the Jurassic Park movies. This article takes a look at the Velociraptor and the genetic makeup as well as phenotypes that it displays. A recent discovery showed that the real Velociraptor was a lapdog-sized predator covered in feathers. In Jurassic park the velociraptors are shown as raptors that are bigger than humans and have a rough scaly skin. If you look at the arm bones of Velociraptor you can see a row of bumps, identical in size and shape to the quill knobs of living birds: the anchor points for big wing feathers...”

Have you ever thought about how people lived a long time ago? Well, there is one community with a creative way of living. It’s called Skara Brae. It’s considered a Neolithic Village. It’s located on the bay of Skaill on the west coast of Mainland, Orkney.
The low antigenicity, biodegradable nature, and cell-binding properties of collagen make it valuable for tissue engineering applications. In parallel, Gelatin is biocompatible, non-immunogenic and bioresorbable. Although, gelatin lacks the structural characteristics of collagen but it has higher solubility and lower cost relative to collagen. Gelatin/CaPs nanocomposites with enhanced mechanical properties and better cell attachment have also been reported. The gelatin/HAP nanostructured scaffolds exhibited mechanical strength comparable to the spongy bone with an excellent capacity of cell attachment, migration and penetration into the pores of the nanocomposite.
Ethical Shortcomings in the Jesse Gelsinger Case Jesse Gelsinger was an 18-year-old male suffering from ornithine transcarbamoylase (OTC) deficiency. On Sept. 13, 1999, he participated in a gene therapy procedure during a clinical trial at the University of Pennsylvania (hereby University) seeking to correct the disorder in infants suffering from the disease who die in infancy. It was an altruistic gesture, as Jessie himself had his disease under control by limiting his diet to low protein foods and taking medicines, but he unselfishly wished to help infants inflicted with the disease. By September 17th, 1999 he died, succumbing to multiple organ failures due to a complication with the viral vector injected into his bloodstream to deliver
GLOBAL PERSPECTIVES The impacts of climate change include:- The rapid rate at which glaciers melt. Results have shown that when President Taft established Glacier National Park in 1910, where an estimated of 150 glaciers resided. But today the number of glaciers have been reduced to less than 30 and most of those that remain have shrunk by two-thirds in area.
