Biology focuses on the structure, function, growth, origin, evolution, and distribution of all living things. One of the goals of biology research is to classify and describe organisms, their functions, how species come into existence. Additionally biologists have interest in the interactions between organisms and with the natural environment. The four unifying principles of modern biology are: evolution, genetics, cell theory, evolution, and homeostasis.
The desire to appear more attractive is universal, its permeating throughout history and in all parts of the world. Both men and women have gone through great lengths to try and meet the standards set by their society’s and cultures. Plastic cosmetic surgery, as a from of beautification has been around for thousands of years, but only in the past century have people taken such drastic steps to change their body. Although the desire for beauty is universal, what is considered beautiful is not; it depends on the culture and society that one is from. In an attempt to become happier and more attractive, many people are turning to cosmetic plastic surgery, and the different genders and age groups all have their reasons for resorting to surgery. With the pressure to conform to our societies standards of beauty from the media; and TV shows that glorify plastic surgery and put a new person under the knife each week, it is no wonder that the number of plastic cosmetic surgery’s carried out are on the rise. In fact cosmetic plastic surgery has quickly become the most common type of surgical procedure to be carried out. In some cases cosmetic plastic surgery can have a positive impact in someone’s life, but for far too many cosmetic surgery patients things don’t go as smoothly as hoped. Botched procedures, dangerous methods, and unqualified surgeons can lead to a potentially disastrous and even life threatening experience. For these reasons there should be an age restriction of 18 and older on anyone having cosmetic plastic surgery.
Sexuality at Different Life Stages
December 15, 2008
Sex is the one biological process that is completely necessary for the perpetuation of humankind. We, as a race, can eat well, sleep well, drink well, and even love well, but without the capacity to reproduce we cannot continue beyond a single generation. Yet the reproductive component of sex sometimes takes a backseat to more complicated subjects such as intimacy, love, and sexual gratification when considering sex across different stages of life. Indeed, John Barrymore (n.d.), the great profile, once quipped, “Sex: the thing that takes up the least amount of time and causes the most amount of trouble” (p. 2). However emotionally and psychologically complicated sexual intercourse might be, sex still maintains a prominent and even necessary position in human lives from adolescences, through disabilities, and into the later years.

Enzymes, which are proteins, are produced by all living organisms. These proteins consist of amino acids but what makes them different is how they behave in our body. (Felice) Enzymes are catalysts that make biochemical reactions take place within our bodies take place quickly and efficiently. These reactions would otherwise happen very slowly and or not occur at all. (SYMBIOSIS p59)
MRSA is by definition a strain of Staphylococcus aureus that is resistant to a large group of antibiotics called the beta-lactams, which include the penicillins and the cephalosporins. In breaking that down, it is easier to just state that MRSA is a type of staph bacteria that is resistant to certain antibiotics.
In 2005, the President’s Council on Bioethics convened to discuss alternative means of deriving pluripotent stem cells. Due to the nature of a blastocyst’s cellular organization, the original procedure to cultivate pluripotent stem cells lines involved the desegregation of blastomeres in developing embryos that necessitated their untimely death1. This process at its inception brought into question the ethics of using pluripotent stem cells derived from embryos, as it meant taking life to save life.
A nutrient is a chemical that an organism needs to live and grow or a substance used in an organism’s metabolism which must be taken in from its environment. It is known that good nutrition before pregnancy is important because of the amount of “resources” childbirth requires. The process of pre-pregnancy nutrition is a process of “building up” the immune system in preparation of pregnancy, and is known as being one of the major factors in determining the success rate of conceiving healthy children. Moringa products have been used to combat malnutrition, especially among infants and nursing mothers. Having a well balanced diet when you are pregnant is extremely important, as your diet is going to be directly related to the health of your fetus. Thus, Moringa supplementation is essential to get the right amounts of vitamins and minerals, as well as other nutrients. All the pregnant women today are more conscious about their health during gestation yet their nutritional intake becomes less as they are prone to cravings, sickness, and lack of energy, which makes preparing the right foods even harder. So the need for the extra nutrient is increasing which becomes more effective when the intake is in the form of natural supplement. Ozone Moringa tea refreshes along with the nutrient intake.
The snow leopard is on the endangered species list. The most serious threat to the snow leopard is loss of habitat. Snow leopards are also hunted for their fur. Hunting snow leopards is illegal, except in Mongolia. Researchers estimate that there are between 3,500 and 7,000 left in the wild. More than 600 snow leopards live in zoos. They are successfully bred in captivity. Snow leopards can live in captivity for 15 years.
