Name: Diane Francis Drawer/Group #: G26 PS ID #: 1215058 Three digit mutant code: 489 BIOL 3311 Fall 2015 Lab Section: 5-digit number: 15836 Date: 9/12/2015 TA Instructor Name: Igor Bado Writing Assignment 1: Description of Unknown Mutant Allele Phenotype Based on our results we conclude our Drosophila melanogaster 489 mutant expressed an eye mutation, named “rust”, because the pigmentation of the eye appeared dark brown compared to the bright red eye seen in the wild type flies. After comparing wild type and mutant flies, no differences were apparent during the larva and pupa stages. Newly- enclosed adults appeared the same in all aspects except for the coloration of the eyes, as well as adults that were several days old.

Tushar Sharma Economics 101 Matt Scammell February 12, 2017 Word Count-766 Summery My overall reflection of this book after reading the first three chapters is that, through forceful storytelling and wry insight, Levitt and Dubner show that economics is at root, the study of incentives how people get what they want, or need, especially when other people want or need the same thing. In Freakonomics, they explore the hidden side of well, everything. What unites all these stories is a belief that the modern world, despite a great deal of complexity and downright deceit, is not impenetrable, is not unknowable, and if the right questions are asked is even more intriguing than we think.
Metaphor is a figurative use of language that refers to one thing by mentioning another thing. It is a kind of semantic extension which involves the conceptualization in which the senses of words are transferred from one cognitive domain to another that are normally similar in components. For example, In Metaphors We Live By, Lakoff and Johnson discussed the example of arguments, which we often talk about as though they were related to war – 'His argument was blown out of the water', 'They battled for hours', 'She won the argument'. They combined/claimed these metaphors as ARGUMENT IS WAR – which is regarded as conceptual metaphor. Argument is regarded as the target domain as it the concept that is being described, while War is the source domain with a more concrete idea.

Last night was highly unexpected. The next day at school no one bullied me and Carrie was my friend. I had now had a friend in my class. In class, we learned about the 4th of July (July 4th) which was Independence Day.
Loosing Chains She noticed him immediately. It was just like the first time. His tall, lean stature made him visibly stand out in a crowd drawing your attention towards him, but it’s his charming, boyish smile, his dancing brown eyes and the subtle hint of a five-o-clock shadow that lures you, almost teasing you to dare to look away.
Humans are complex creatures that can be defined by the unique characteristics that they possess. When analyzing the differences between humans and other species, it is important to take into context the non biological differences. The mental capacity of humans affects how they are able to function in the world and creates a mental barrier between them and other earthly creatures. In the novel Frankenstein, Mary Shelley highlights some of the defining characteristics of humans. Shelley displays an artificial creature that is inhumane in many aspects, but over time showcases human like characteristics.
