Investigating the Effect of Different Solutions on Plant Cells

Investigating the Effect of Different Solutions on Plant Cells
The aim of my experiment is to find the effects of different solutions
on plant cells.

Osmosis is a form of diffusion, the movement of molecules to allow
them to mix, which occurs in plants. When a cell containing a weak
solution is next to a cell containing a stronger solution the water in
the weaker solution moves towards the stronger solution. This is why I
think that the pieces of potato in the concentrated solution will
decrease in both weight and length. However, I believe that the potato
will do the opposite and increase in length and weight.

An Analysis of the Impact of Increased Climate Change on Building Merchant Industry, Its Effect on the Marketplace and the Future Strategies of E.H. S

An Analysis of the Impact of Increased Climate Change on Building Merchant Industry, Its Effect on the Marketplace and the Future Strategies of E.H. S
One of the frightening environmental concerns is the build-up of carbon-dioxide (CO2) in the atmosphere that has resulted from heavy use of fossil fuels. This carbon dioxide blankets traps the sun's radiation, which leads to an increase in the earth's average temperature. In the UK, climate change is likely to give rise to warmer temperatures, wetter winters and drier summers, as well as higher sea levels resulting in flooding of coastal areas (Boyd et al 1998). As an article (Habitat International 1995) states "the building industry, together with the materials industries which support it, is one of the major global exploiters of natural resources, both physical and biological". The department of trade and industry (DTI) says that just to maintain existing stock the industry "produces about half of UK carbon emissions and single biggest action is in improving energy efficient in new and existing stock".

Cause, Pathology and Treatment of Alzheimer's Disease

Cause, Pathology and Treatment of Alzheimer's Disease
Growing up in the 80's I remember my mother questioning President Reagan's politics, policies, morality, and even his sanity. Though I would not wish a debilitating disease on anyone, I had to laugh at the irony when I heard Reagan had Alzheimer's Disease(AD). To think that his "I do not recall" line during the Contra scandal may have been true! The idea of the President of the United States suffering the early stages of a disease causing dementia, confusion, irritability, and memory loss(1) during the very dangerous Cold War gives me the heebie jeebies.

The Placebo Effect

The Placebo Effect
The activity I chose to write about was on Dr. Walter A. Brown’s article in Scientific American about placebos and their effect on the patients. His article described what a placebo is and if it is ethical for doctors to prescribe this “treatment'; to their patients.

Tariffs always cause a net welfare loss

Tariffs always cause a net welfare loss
Tariffs always cause a net welfare loss

Explain and critically evaluate this statement.

In this essay, I will be discussing the impact of protectionism, in
focus, the impact of tariffs, import duties. As well discussing the
overall effect on welfare from the tariff, the gainers and the losers
will need to be identified. I will illustrate this diagrammatically. I
will then move to discuss the value of the optimal tariff imposition.
As well as discussing the first best argument, I will also look at the
value of second best arguments, examining whether or not tariffs do
always cause a net welfare loss.

Overestimation of the Placebo Effect

Overestimation of the Placebo Effect
The purpose of this paper is to investigate whether the Placebo Effect is overestimated through misinterpretation of the data. Specifically, the objective is to explore whether the passage of time during clinical trials accounts for many results widely attributed to the placebo effect. That is, the passage of time in itself-through a combination of spontaneous changes in symptoms, regression effects, and homeostatic changes-produces most of the favorable results credited to the placebo.

Sports Cause the Discussion of Ethical, Social and Cultural Issues

Sports Cause the Discussion of Ethical, Social and Cultural Issues
Abstract: In contemporary American society, the pervasiveness of sports has become the vehicle for the discussion of important ethical and cultural issues. The typical American is included in this discussion due to this cultural saturation. This saturation plays an important role in public discourse. Sports provide an egalitarian platform for the daily discussion of important ethical, social and cultural issues.

The Cause and Effect of the Tsunami in Thailand in 2004

The Cause and Effect of the Tsunami in Thailand in 2004
The Cause and Effect of the Tsunami in Thailand in 2004
The tsunami in Thailand that occurred on December 26, 2004, was by far the largest tsunami catastrophe in human history. It was triggered by a magnitude 9.1-9.3 earthquake along the Indian-Australian subduction zone off the northern coast of Sumatra. The tsunami waves traveled primarily in the east to west direction and caused major damage along the coasts of southern Thailand. Unpredictably, it was a violent earthquake beneath the sea that initiated the massive waves and struck more than a dozen countries in Southern Asia.
