The death of Edgar Allen Poe has been a mystery quite sometime as the details surrounding it are very few and the few we do have are quite vague. Through all of the unclear details two theories have arisen. The first theory of Poe’s death was alcohol poisoning. Poe was found outside of a tavern in a disoriented state of mind and for an unknown reason was wearing someone else’s clothes.

My interpretation of the main theme for each poem, short story, and piece of nonfiction in both sections is, “You will always encounter obstacles throughout life, but with the support from others you can overcome them”.

The authors of these pieces of works showed the outcomes of their characters and whether they made the right or wrong decision in the choices they made.

It is believed that 5 million people throughout the world have a form of lupus. More than 16,000 new cases of lupus are reported annually across the country. Lupus is a chronic, autoimmune disease that can damage any part of the body. When someone has lupus something goes wrong with their immune system, which is the part of the body that fights off viruses, bacteria, and germs. Normally our immune system would produces proteins called antibodies that protect the body from these invaders. When someone has an autoimmune disease it means their immune system cannot tell the difference between these foreign invaders and their body’s healthy tissues. This creates autoantibodies that attack and destroy healthy tissue. These autoantibodies

Additionally, elderspeak can be patronizing and convey the expectation that the listener is not competent to understand normal speech.

The word breakdown of each word is as follows thrombocytemia - thromb/o - platelet, cyt/o - cell, suffix -emia - condition of the blood; and thrombocytosis - thromb/o- platelet, cyt/o - cell, suffix -osis - abnormal condition. Both mean that there is an abnormal amount of platelets in the blood. Platelets assist in the clotting process.
Leonard is one of the patients in the "garden," a ward of a Bronx mental hospital that is so named by the staff because the patients are there simply to be fed and watered. It appears that nothing can be done for them. They were victims of the great "sleeping sickness" epidemic of the 1920s, and after a period of apparent recovery they regressed to their current states. It is 1969. They have many different symptoms, but essentially they all share the same problem: They cannot make their bodies do what their minds desire. Sometimes that blockage is manifested through bizarre physical behavior, sometimes through apparent paralysis.

Will Smith plays the role of Dr. Omalu Bennet (Dr. discoverer) who is a forensic pathologist with a Nigerian decent; he pioneers a challenge against the National Football League (NFL).
