Sandra Slutz, a staff scientist at Ohio University, found out that if a person is crossed hand eye dominant then they will shoot better because their dominant eye is not blocked by the basketball she also writes, “coaches need to coach from the eyes down”, since the eyes play a very important part in basketball shooting. Although, crossed hand eye dominance provides the best basketball shooting percentages, dominance-altering activities will improve same-side dominance by seven percent.
There are two-types of motor skill gross motor skills and fine motor skills both of them work together to provide coordination and they are typically developed and mastered between the ages of six…
Marshall official and public. She is unable to attain this job on her own since she had to marry a man with a better education and more wealth to achieve this dream of hers. Marisa’s character perpetuates the passive-submissive stereotype since she needs Chris in order to succeed. However, other contemporary films, such as Raising Victor Vargas, reject the passive-submissive female stereotype.
In Raising Victor Vargas, the character of Judy breaks the passive-submissive stereotype when she takes…
Confirmation of Mendel’s Law of Segregation
In Biology class the past few weeks we have been learning about Gregor Mendel. Gregor Mendel is often called the father of modern genetics. Mendel developed the theory of inheritance several decades before the observance of chromosomes via microscope. In Biology lab the past two weeks I completed a series of tests using fast plants, Brassica rapa.
The objective of this experiment was to study the Mendelian laws of genetics as they applied to…
resources. In summary, ‘global business is where strategy meets geography’, (Spulber, 2007, p37). Throughout this text I will seek to demonstrate how Nokia co-ordinates business internationally in order to drive the company foreword.

Nokia began its pursuit for global dominance using success in native Finland as a springboard for international expansion and technological development. After a history of industrial works, Nokia began to turn its attention to the…
Originally it was believed that all traits are blended together. Due to the work of Gregor Mendel, though, it was shown that characteristics are a result of inherited factors, known as genes1. Genes are units of heredity on a chromosome that bring about our existence and create diversity. This diversity arises from the fact that there are different forms of genes known as alleles. All the alleles of an organism are referred to as that organism’s genotype and results in an organism’s phenotype,…
Analysis of phenotype and genotype using Phenylthiocarbamide (PTC) variation taste sensitivity
Taste occurs when chemical signals stimulate taste receptor cells in the oral cavity to detect tastes such as sweet, sour, salty, bitter and umami. PTC taste sensitivity is very common substance used to study taste perception. Many studies have provided insights into tastes perception using sodium benzoate and thiourea. PTC sensitivity has often been used for practical demonstrations in…

Ectodermal Dysplasia is a group of conditions that interfere with the normal functions of skin, hair, nails, teeth or sweat glands. These abnormalities cause various issues with everyday activities such as eating, brushing hair, exercising, and blinking. This paper will explain how this disease occurs, its symptoms, diagnosis, and treatment.
Causes of ED
Ectodermal Dysplasia, or ED, is a genetic disorder that…
Genetic Analysis in Plants
Trev Mumm and Peter Masinelli
Life 120 – Lab Section 122
April 28th, 2014
We completed this lab to classify and count phenotypic traits in plant crosses with one or two segregating mutations, and we also learned how to use the Chi-Square test as a tool to access the statistical significance data collected from a genetic cross. Our hypothesis for the experiment that included green and albino corn genetics, was that the ratio of green to albino…
Johann Mendel was born on July 20, 1822 in Heinzendorf bei Odrau, a small village in the Austrian Empire. Mendel’s parents were poor farmers who made many sacrifices to pay for his education. Mendel did well throughout his high school career and, at age 18, he entered the University of Olomouc in 1840. During his time at the University, Mendel studied mathematics, philosophy, and physics. In 1843, at age 21, Mendel experienced financial troubles. Professor Friedrich Franz, a physicist,…
Albinism is a rare genetic condition characterized by the reduced pigmentation in a person’s hair, skin, and eyes. In most variations of the disorder, it is an autosomal recessive condition, an albino individual would have to inherit the recessive allele from both parents. This condition has been of particular intrigue to me ever since I had been introduced to the disorder when reading a novel where the main character suffered from albinism. Even though this character had suffered extreme…
