  • The Kuiper Belt

    only explanation for short-lived comets. However, that anomaly was not the sole phenomenon the Kuiper Belt and its contents helped explain. The Kuiper Belt’s primordial origins have established it as one of the most helpful tools to aid in learning more about the solar system’s beginning. Its existence debunks the original theory of the belt’s formation, consequently given way to the conjecture predicting a shuffling of the planets resulting in their current placement. Gravitational fields of Kuiper Belt Objects, or KBOs, have given evidence as to the existence of another undiscovered planet- dubbed…

  • Comet Ping Pong Scandal

    James Alefantis was just an average restaurant owner. He had some quirky concepts and a politically significant ex-husband, but nothing alarming. That all changed with “Pizzagate,” a political scandal surrounding his pizzeria, Comet Ping Pong. At first glance, Comet Pizza is nothing special. It is described as a “hipster-heavy pizza parlor in the Upper Northwest with rough concrete walls, bathrooms hidden behind secret panels, and table tennis galore” (qtd. in Comet Ping Pong), but Comet Pizza…

  • Comet Assay Lab Report

    The comet assay, also known as single-cell gel electrophoresis (SCGE), is a standard lab technique that can measure deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) strand breaks in eukaryotic cells. This technique originated in 1984 with the purpose of quantifying the amount of DNA damage in a cell (3). Originally the test was run using neutral conditions, but this only allowed for detection of double stranded DNA breaks. In 1988 the technique was adapted to use alkaline conditions that made it more sensitive and…

  • The Great Comet Of 1812 Play Analysis

    Consequently, at the time when we were given a choice for Play #5, I was also lucky enough to receive an opportunity to see the “The Great Comet of 1812” with my residence hall.

  • The Comet By W. E. B. Dubois Analysis

    One work that is difficult is The Comet by W.E.B. Du Bois. This work is difficult because the story features an African-American man being the hero. When W.E.B. Du Bois wrote this, white people were always the main characters and heroes in stories. For example, in The Comet, “She stared at him. Of all the sorts of men she had pictured as coming to her rescue she had not dreamed of one like him” (McMichael 1111-1112). A white woman was in need of rescue, and she did not imagine that an…

  • Analysis Of The Comet By W. E. B. Du Bois

    W.E.B. Du Bois wrote The Comet with a prominent theme of successful miscegenation in order to alter the general population’s disapproval of interracial relationships during the 1920s. Using an ultimatum, the author proves to the reader that the opposing races will not be seen as equal, until the world ends- unless society comes to the realization that blacks and whites can live in harmony. As soon as the poor black man, Jim Davis, and the rich white woman, Julia, discover each other, they are…
