Hydrothermal Vents- ecosystems below the sea
Hydrothermal Vents- ecosystems below the sea The hydrothermal vents are essentially geysers on the sea floor that support unusual chemical based ecosystems. Some scientists think that vents are the origin environments where life began on Earth billions of years ago. And the vents might also hold clues to life on other planets. This ecosystem may be one of the most ancient of Earth and have had a long-term effect on global geochemical cycles, however it is one of the least well understood. Hydrot

Is Modern Medicine A Threat To The Human Gene Pool? The human gene pool is the source of diversity between us. It is this that attributes to the 0.1% difference in DNA between you and the next person (Cohen, 2001). Competition, starvation, predators and disease among others acted as selective pressures on our ancestors and thereby pushed and pulled the gene pool in different directions. Overall, those with genes that suited the environment survived and reproduced, while those with less suited ge

Reducing Numbers of Cars Abstract Nowadays, the number of cars in the city is increasing very rapidly day by day. In this paper it is argued that as the numbers of cars are increasing rapidly in the city, pollution is becoming a serious problem. As a solution to this problem the numbers of cars in the city should be minimized. This paper will explain this argument through various researches done on this and some similar topics. This paper also illustrates the problems faced due to the congestion

Genetic engineering is the alteration of an organism's DNA, or genetic, material to eliminate undesirable characteristics or to produce desirable new ones. The most controversial form of genetic engineering, by far, is cloning. Cloning is another technology that has evolved out of genetic research.

What you don't know if that cloning could be dangerous, to the clone and to our society as a whole. It's unethical to have a human clone. What about identity? Humans are guaranteed the right to their own personality. What would happen if we overrode those rights by giving them someone else's genetic identity?

Few certain details remain about the life of antiquitys greatest mathematician, Archimedes. We know he was born in 287 B.C.E. around Syracuse from a report about 1400 years after the fact. Archimedes tells about his father, Pheidias, in his book The Sandreckoner. Pheidias was an astronomer, who was famous for being the author of a treatise on the diameters of the sun and the moon. Historians speculate that Pheidias profession explains why Archimedes chose his career. Some scholars have charact

Cloning? What is it and what is a clone? Simply stated, a clone is a duplicate-- much like a photocopy is a duplicate, or copy, of a document. A good example of such copies that occur in nature are identical twins, which are duplicates of each other. On a daily basis, molecular geneticists and other scientists use cloning techniques to replicate various genetic materials such as gene segments and cells. In light of this relatively new science, many questions come to mind. How will those appli

The Old Kingdom which was from about 2755-2255 BC, spanned five centuries of rule by the 3rd through the 6th dynasties. The capital was in the north, at Memphis, and the ruling monarchs held absolute power over a strongly unified government. Religion played an important role, as recorded in Egyptian mythology. In fact, the government had evolved into a theocracy, wherein the pharaohs, as the rulers were called, were both absolute monarchs and, possibly, gods on earth. A Golden Age The 3rd Dynast
