In the recent years, Genetically Modified organisms (GMOs) have in numerous ways affected the composition of our diets considering the fact that they have replaced our healthy and naturally produced food with genetically altered food. These alterations have had significant effects on human health and the society. As pointed out by Verma1, Nanda, Singh and Mishra (3), “the genetic material has been altered in a way that does not occur naturally by mating and/or natural recombination.” The result, a transgene, is integrated into the recipients to form the product with “improved qualities.” This makes the products susceptible to the potential of the effects of pleiotropical insertion (Dona and Arvanitoyannis 165). There are also high chances of affecting the animal’s or plant’s health due to the increased anti-nutrients included. Further, human health can be affected by the consumption of the viral DNA in the GMO plants. Dona and Arvanitoyannis (167) further observes that there are are chances of transferring antibiotic resistant genes to from the ingested food materials to the gastrointestinal tract bacteria as well as direct absorption of the genes in the GM product from the gut.

Colorblindness is the total inability or reduced capacity to distinguish between different colors under average lighting conditions. The term colorblindness refers to impairment of color vision but not actual blindness. Colorblindness is highly sex-linked and affects the larger percentage of males than females in a typical population. This is because the genes that generate photopigments are found on the X chromosome; the absence or damaged genes will therefore result to colorblindness in males in a higher proportion since males only have one X chromosome. The cause of this condition is via development of a single or multiple arrays of retinal cones that identifies color in light and relays the information to the optic nerve system. Scientist have also discovered that colorblindness can be chemical or physical damage of optic nerve. Nearly 8% of the male population and 4.5% of UK’s population are colorblind (Franzco, Tong, Zhang, & Ee-Ling, 2008). The Red-Green colorblind is highly dominant hence posing the question of what complementary variation of red and green colors are colorblind people, able to differentiate. Continue reading
In my previous work experience, I have displayed critical and analytical thinking by preparing complex financial statements, as well as interim and annual reports while working at AARP Washington DC in June 2004 to 2006. At the Bank of America in Silver Spring from January 2003 to June 2004, where I worked as the personal banker and investment advisor, I displayed critical and analytical thinking by assisting and advising clients, in their selection of various accounts and business services. At the Iconium Partners, where I was the director of business development, I continued to display critical thinking by identifying and networking with prospective clients. At XL Health Corporation in Baltimore where I worked as the medical claims processing manager, I analyzed and filed denied claims. I also analyzed claims submitted by service providers for completeness and accuracy. Continue reading
Women are a great figure in the society especially thinking about their role in the day to day life. It would, therefore, be incorrect to say that women are different from men in the contest of how they think and carry themselves. With globalization that has come up with a lot of requirements for professionals, women have been seen competing with men in different specialization throughout the globe. A woman can be analyzed depending on how men and other women think about her and not basically the way she acts in the real world. In this contest, one can basically use photography to understand what women stand for in the society. This research seeks to understand whether women have a strong image in the society or not.

The short story Astronomer’s Wife by Kay Boyle, begins with Mrs. Ames or Katherine Ames, the astronomer’s wife daily routine. She lays down her mat and does yoga before drinking coffee and setting out for the day’s activities. Her husband Mr. Ames, the astronomer, is still in bed tossing and turning or just pretending to sleep. Mr. Ames is distant from his wife and rarely speaks to her about anything. He just lives in his own astronomy world and dreams of only the things above “…at times he lay still for hours, at others he sat upon the roof behind his telescope, or wandered down the pathway to the road and out across the mountains (Boyle 28).” On this fateful morning, a plumber arrives at Mrs. Ames home to fix a spill. As usual, Mr. Ames is disinterested and continues sleeping. Mrs. Ames who is starved for attention gets acquitted with the plumber. The plumber quickly notices her beauty and youth and also realizes that she is starved for attention and care “the plumber himself looked up and saw Mrs. Ames with her voice hushed, speaking to him. She was a youngish woman, but she had forgotten. The mystery and silence of her husband’s mind lay like a chiding finger on her lips” (Boyle 28). Continue reading

Teenage pregnancy has emerged as a much higher trend across the world with many women becoming pregnant at their teenage ages. This has been attributed to several factors such as most teenage boys and girls that engage into their first sexual experience end up becoming pregnant since they rarely understand contraceptives. Most of them also engage in more than one sexual partner meaning that acquiring pregnancy is possible at this age. There are risks involved in becoming pregnant at the teenage age just as there area in becoming pregnant at the age of forty and above. This paper will explore of teenage pregnancy as well as all the related stages in development considering that the woman is supposed to be in school learning like the others. It will discuss on difficulties experienced throughout the life development of the child before birth and after birth as well as programs involved in the pregnancy periods. Continue reading
Relevance of alternative processes in the digital age
The bankruptcy declaration in 2012 by the once gargantuan Eastman Kodak company signaled the end of an era for film as a medium for capturing images. Erosion of business for film by digital photography was such that by 2003, the company had announced that it would stop investing in film. Digital photography is preferred in many quarters owing to its convenience, capacity for manipulation and cheapness over film. Digital cameras have become cheaper, able to capture images at relatively higher resolutions for a given price, manipulation or correction of images is easier in the digital format, and printing is much simpler. As the quality of digital photography improves, it has even been used as a substitute for film in movies, which require images to be captured at very high resolutions. Despite the popularity of digital photography, film retains a following with some people, myself included, working mostly in film as their preferred method for capturing images.
