    Atmospheric Global Circulation is the movement of air caused by solar energy and the interaction of warm and cold air - this convergence forms cells or belts over the Earth’s surface. George Hadley (1685–1768) a British physicist and meteorologist, who first described this theory in 1753, did so using what is known as the Single-Cell Atmospheric Global Circulation Model or Hadley Cell (The Editors of Encyclopædia Britannica, 2007). Hadley’s Single-Cell theory failed to consider the Coriolis Effect which prevents air from traveling directly to the poles and could not explain the westerly winds in the mid-latitudes (The Editors of Encyclopædia Britannica, 2007). In the 1850’s research provides greater insight to the westerlies and polar easterlies,…

    species (Miller & Hammond, 2003). The larvae digestive system begins with the mouth, leads to the esophagus, and to the malpighian tubules, where nitrogenous wastes are filter and ion regulation takes place. The malpighian tubules lead toward the hind intestine and finally to the rectum, through which the wastes are eliminate (Douglas,1989). Caterpillars grow through time and increase in size each time they shed their skins which also known as molt. After molting, their skin is shed and develop…

    motor proteins attached to the vesicles. Microtubules can also expand or shrink in length in order to establish dynamic structures that can efficiently change the internal organization of the cell, and capture organelles through the cytosol. Intermediate filaments are made up of the protein keratin. Their primary function is to strengthen the internal structure of a cell. Microfilaments are the smallest among the three cytoskeletal filaments. They consist of protein actin. Microfilaments are…

    evolutionary time that has occurred. Heat shock proteins (HSPs) are in a class of proteins called molecular chaperones. (Kiang, J.; G, Tsokos. 1998). They are present in both eukaryotes and prokaryotes, in the cytosol, mitochondria, endoplasmic reticulum and the nucleus. In humans they have a relatively long half-life of about 2 days (Baneyx, F. 2008). HSP70 are a specific type which are normally found in very low amounts within a cell, they can be expressed in response to external stimuli.…

    In the case of a missing limb, the scientists would take stem cells from the patient and us it for the base of the new limb. If Humans mastered cloning then they could use that technology and the patient’s stem cells to construct a new arm, leg, ear, or whatever was missing without worrying too much about the patient’s body rejecting the foreign limb. In the case of organs the process would be more or less the same, if someone was dying of liver cancer, it would be possible to take out his…
