A placebo would not further this experiment in any way since the experiment needs to track people’s everyday lives of their fruit intake. The researchers are not giving them anything they are just receiving the data every few years when they sent the follow up questionnaire. Since the study was conducted over such a long period of time, along with the questionnaires becoming more detailed each time, this study fits the criteria of valid length wise. The fifth step is to gather all the data analyze it and come to a conclusion. After acquiring all the data from the study the conclusion was that different fruits do give you different chances of getting diabetes.
The video was an eye opener for me; I was astonished to hear about people who develop numerous health problems after consuming these products. The problem with taking supplements is that the industry is so poorly regulated and we never know what we are really consuming. In the case of Acai Berries, or any other ingredient, most manufacturers claim their “healthy vitamins” contain 100% of those ingredients, when in reality most of them lie about the component of such products. Personally I don’t doubt the benefits of consuming Acai, but it would be more beneficial if we consume this fruit directly from
“A 20-ounce soda contains 15 to 18 teaspoons of sugar and 240 calories. These calories don’t satiate your child, so he will consume the same amount of food as if he did not drink the soda”. However, there are also many sodas that have 0 calories in their product. “We scoured the shelves to find the best sodas out there. Our criteria: no high-fructose corn syrup; no more than 20 g of sugar; no artificial colors like Red 40 or Yellow 5; and a glass of the fizzy stuff had to be less than 100 calories.” In the end soda should be allowed in all middle schools.
Business Technology Early College High School Fertilizer Lab Experiment AP Living Environment Mr. Acquaotta/Mr. Lee Purpose The purpose that this lab was conducted was because we wanted to see if seeds germinated faster if fertilizer was applied. Introduction Fertilizer we use it when we garden, we see companies promote it in various ways, but have you ever wondered if it made a difference in growth of plants? Does it really make flowers bloom more rapidly or vegetables grow larger and more productive? The answers to these questions are all within the realm of science because they are testable by controlled experiments, observations and data gathering.
Beeswax is considered a renewable natural resource. Which means beeswax can be easily replenished by bees. Most beeswax candles are one hundred percent beeswax, which means no artificial chemicals are found in them. Some people are very allergic to those chemicals. When the candles are burned there is very little smoke, therefore that keeps propel with asthma form having an attack.
In the initial trial, Dim vs. Dim, we expected an equal number of flies on each side of the chamber due to the same lighting on both sides. Yet, the results proved otherwise, as Drosophila Melanogaster showed a strong preference for Side B. In finding the reason for this preference when the dim lighting was seemingly the same, we found that instead of using two of the same light bulb, we used two different light bulbs: a CFL and a normal incandescent. The majority of the Drosophila Melanogaster traveled towards the incandescent bulb. This behavior is supported by other experiments — not specifically on Drosophila Melanogaster, but on insects in general.
In our Rube Goldberg machine, we wanted to complete our chemical reaction; which was dumping vinegar into baking soda to create carbon dioxide. Our machine didn’t really work because, we had to help it 5 times. The most difficult parts of our machine were where we had to help it. We had to help move one of the marbles up top, because the marble that hit it didn’t have enough force. When we ran it, we were very confident because it had worked many times before; but when it got to that step, it didn’t work.
However, I am only consuming 3 µg. So, this means I did not consume enough Vitamin D. As a result, of this I may have problems with bones and muscles. In order to improve my Vitamin D levels, I should eat more milk, fish oils and get so more sunlight. Moreover, I also did not meet my Vitamin E suggested intakes, which are 15 mg and I only consumed 2mg. Not consuming enough vitamin E put me at risk of nerve damages.
The incandescent lamp was already created by previous inventors; however, their versions were not effective and cheap enough for mass-production commercially. Edison eventually understood that the light bulb needed to have a low current, and thus, high resistance as well as voltage. Additionally, the design required a long-lasting filament, which was extremely difficult to find. After his endeavor comprising of thousands of meticulous experiments, Edison finally used a carbonized cotton thread as the filament that successfully lit the light bulb for about 13.5 hours. Edison would improve his invention until November 4, 1879, when he filed a patent for a light bulb using "a carbon filament or strip coiled and connected to platina contact wires".
First, keeping the seeds in the same area with the same temperature and the amount of sunlight would help the odds of the fluctuation within the different concentration results. Having every bag in the same region would then factor out any skepticism that those two factors effected the overall germination. Second, if everyone has to test the various concentrations, why not test every concentration so there would be even more data tied to the germination and maybe an improvement on the experiment. A final improvement for the effect of salt concentrations on germination could be the number of trials completed. Usually in an effective experiment, many trials are done so the data can line up for any mistakes made.
