Prior to Hershey donating his entire fortune to the Hershey Industrial School, Elizabeth Sweeney died in 1915 (Lancto, 2003). Moreover, Hershey supported the United States during WWII. He produced Field D Ration bars just for the U.S. Army and Navy. Consequently, Milton Hershey earned the Army/Navy E Award for his civilian donation to the war effort (Lancto, 2003). Hershey’s picture was also added to a postage stamp in the U.S.
Mendel focused on seven basic characteristics of plants. He looked for things such as size, color, wrinkly or smooth, and if the plant was tall or short. One of Mendel 's experiments discovered genetics in peas. Mendel decided to take two peas one yellow and one green and crossbred two peas. The first experiment F1 resulted in four yellow peas.
He did not finish his entire education because later on because he was forced to work ("Benjamin Banneker (1731-1806)," n.d.). In his early life, he lived by Baltimore, Maryland on a farm which his family owned. On this 100 acre farm, he gained a love for astronomy and the connection it had to mathematics. He would teach himself about these things
Gregor Mendel was a scientist and an Augustinian friar and monk working in St. Thomas’ abbey in Brno, Moravia. He grew up on a farm in the Silesian part of the Austrian Empire with his parents, Anton and Rosine Mendel, and had one older sister, Veronika, and a younger one, Theresia. Gregor worked as a beekeeper during his childhood, and then attended gymnasium as a young man. He studied practical and theoretical philosophy and physics at the Philosophical Institute of the University of Olomouc, missing a whole year of studies because of illness. He became a friar after completing part of his studies, in order to obtain a free education.
When Pa does bring in an animal I help ma prepare it, she says I need to learn how to do this for when I get a husband of my own. The Jansons came by the other day, they have a boy about my age so we played outside while the adults spoke. My ma said that when we got old enough that I was to marry the Jansons boy, but I'm not too sure what that means. He is really fun to play with though. Yesterday while I was helping ma prepare breakfast pa started talking about how the crops are
He was a great person and was the only person to sign four great papers of the U.S., Declaration of Independence, the Articles of Confederation, the Constitution, and the Continental Association. His parents were William and Mehetabel Sherman, and they had seven kids. Roger himself married twice which gave him fifteen children, but only thirteen made it to adulthood. His first wife was Elizabeth Hartwell and his second was Rebecca Prescott. Sherman died in his sleep becaus eof sickness he had for about two months.
We can all agree upon the fact that Gregor Mendel is the “founder of modern genetics”. He got that nickname from an experiment about plant hybridization that he carried out in the 1860s involving 29,000 pea plants! He used peas since they had easily observable traits, 7 of which he could manipulate. In order to study the traits passed on, he planned to selectively cross pollinate the peas with one another. By doing that, he acquired 34 varieties of peas, from which he chose 22 that differed in size and color to conduct his experiments further.
In the second assembly the fate and nature of the first native would be decided. As it is a long tale only the part of the story between the first and second assembly of the Manitous is reproduced. (Writing between square brackets  are helpful comments from the cultural anthropologist and author, Ruth Landes.) Nehnehbush wondered how the system would work. He waited until the first humans had four children when he journeyed all over Earth to discover its size.
3. Group data is somewhat similar to my groups data. AS you can see in both figure one and two, both our sets of data have the Kidney Beans going extinct and the lentil and split peas finishing with the most population. These sets of data do support my conclusions. I predicted that kidney beans would have the least population after the generations, and both sets of data had the kidney beans going extinct.

For biology and genetics, Drosophila melanogaster, the common fruit fly, has proven to be a suitable subject for over the last 100 years. In 1910, a small research group led by principal investigator Thomas Hunt Morgan at Columbia University first utilized Drosophila as a model organism to discover two fundamental concepts of genetics – chromosomal means
In 1846, Dr. William Morton was wrongly credited of being the first person to have used sulfuric-ether as a sedative for surgery. A few minutes after delivering a child, Long died of a stroke in Athens, Georgia. Sadly, one year after he died he was officially declared the discoverer of anesthesia by the National Eclectic Medical Association. There are numerous memorials, statues, and paintings honoring Dr. Crawford Long, and there is The Crawford Long museum in Jefferson, Georgia. Also, in 1931, he had a hospital named after him called Emory Crawford Long Hospital, which later was renamed Emory University Hospital Midtown in 2009.
In fact my dad just laid in bed and cleaned the house, making everything spotless, the first few weeks.. Until, he started taking my brother and me to school in the morning. Where afterwards he would meet his friends for lunch and sometimes breakfast. Until he found something else to fill his time. Later that year, my mom volunteered my dad to work at Hughes Elementary School. After that he started helping people out by shoveling their driveways and mowing their yards.
Lyme disease first became known in 1975 in Lyme, Connecticut when a group of mothers had informed researchers their children all had been identified in having rheumatoid arthritis. This was unusual, and led the researchers to pinpoint the bacterial cause of the children’s illness. It was then in 1982 the condition was given the name “Lyme disease”. In the United States about 300,000 people are diagnosed each year, but because many of the symptoms resemble other diseases it is hard to diagnose and many cases go undiagnosed. The disease is found all over the United States and in over 60 countries all over the world.

HeLa cells have become the foundation to many modern vaccines and have been used in scientific research since its discovery. If one were to step into a cell culture lab anywhere in the world and open its freezers, there would be millions of HeLa cells in small vials behind its doors. As much of a remarkable discovery as they may be, many fail to recognize their origin. HeLa cells were not a creation made by man in a lab, but a discovery found inside a woman.
Yet, in the midst of her recovery, Gary’s father was diagnosed with kidney cancer. Unlike Gary’s mother, his father would lose his fight to cancer in the days before the passage of the Affordable Care Act. After this somber time, Gary picked himself up and returned back to school to became the first member of his family to earn a college diploma. With his best friend and future wife Bridget, Gary relocated to Plymouth to explore the possibility of becoming a full-time teacher by working as a substitute teacher. Gary wound up subbing in every public school in Canton, Plymouth, and Northville.
