  • How Language Affects Interpersonal Communication

    The fifth chapter of Interplay centers itself around the principle of language, and how it so greatly effects interpersonal communication. One of the concepts that stuck out to me from this chapter was the nature of language, and how language is rule-governed. There are both phonological rules and syntactical rules, which respectively mean “how sounds are combined to form words” and “the way symbols can be arranged,” which are simply how the language is organized and interpreted to their speakers (Adler, Rosenfeld, Proctor, 2015, pg. 141). There are also semantic rules, which “govern our use of the language,” in other words, “the meaning of statements” (Adler et. al, 2015, pg. 141). This is how it established that a particular word associates with a particular meaning, such as how water is for drinking and food is for eating. Finally, pragmatic rules “tell us what uses and interpretations of a message are appropriate in a given context” (Adler et. al, 2015, pg. 142). Different relationships between people can establish a different meaning to a phrase or word, such as between friends or between an employer and employee. I can directly attest to this, as I have some less appropriate nicknames given to me by some of my teammates on the football team. Now, in the environment of practice or in team functions, I recognize the nickname and tend to respond to it, despite it containing an entirely different meaning. However, outside of football, my friends choose not to use this…

  • Zhikv Case Studies

    2015, a widespread pandemic of the Zika virus (ZIKV) was reported in South and Central America and the Caribbean’s as well. The principal concern associated with this viral infection is the increased incidences of microcephaly in fetuses born to mothers infected with ZIKV. As a result, World Health Organization has declared it a pandemic that is affecting many lives. This paper will examine what the virus is in detail, by looking at its signs and symptoms, and second it will look at its…

  • Epstein Barr Virus Research Paper

    Epstein-Barr Virus is part of the herpesvirus family and was the first virus discovered to cause a human cancer. The virus has two stages of its life, the latent phase, which allows the virus to lie dormant within a cell and the host. The other stage is the lytic phase in which the virus reproduces and allows the virus to spread among cells. Haloperidol (HPD) aids in the initiation of the lytic cycle. The Haloperidol will be administered at varying concentrations and exposure times. Using…

  • Influenza Virus

    A) The infection process of a vertebrate virus consists of 6 stages. Provide the name for each stage and provide details of the events that take place at each stage using Influenza virus A as the model. The 6 stages consist of: Attachment, Penetration, Uncoating, Biosynthesis, Assembly, and Release. Attachment is when the virus attaches or “locks” itself onto an acceptable cell. This occurs because a protein receptor is recognized by the virus and the virus attaches to the cell.…

  • Influenza Virus: Pandemics

    Influenza is one of the major respiratory virus that causes nearly annual epidemics and occasional pandemics. Influenza epidemics generally occur in the winter months in the Northern hemisphere and May-September in the Southern hemisphere (Cox et al, 2004). This virus belongs to the genus Orthomyxovirus in the family of Orthomyxoviridae. Influenza A viruses are enveloped RNA virus with eight RNA segments that encodes for upto 11 viral genes ( Lamb &Krug ,2001, Fields virology, 4th edt. ).The…

  • Viruses Cause Diseases

    allows the virus to multiple. This is why they are often referred to as cellular parasites. Since they are very small, and they can only be seen by looking through a microscope. There are approximately 5,000 different viruses that have the potential to infect plants, animals, and bacteria. Some are incredibly dangerous and can cause problems in humans that eventually lead to death. Others cause diseases that are very mild and do not cause big problems like certain flu viruses. Viruses can be a…

  • Ebola Virus

    The Ebola virus is gaining worldwide fame due to its sensational outbreak originating from Sierra Leone. The outbreaks of the virus have been recognized and effectively dealt with in the past, but the present outbreak is becoming a overwhelming challenge. Approximately there have been 15,000 suspected cases of the disease and 6,000 confirmed deaths so far. The horrifying visual hemorrhagic symptoms caused by the Ebola virus include internal and external bleeding as well as the fear inducing…

  • CRISPR/Cas9 System: A Genetic Analysis

    The CRISPR/Cas9 system is a system currently being studied for use as a genetic modification method. It was discovered by scientists working with bacterial cells. It was discovered that bacterial cells utilize a defense system in which they identify viruses that are invading and “chop up” their DNA. This defense mechanism is composed of clustered regularly interspaced short palindromic repeats found within the genome of bacteria. This is the origin of the CRISRP acronym. These CRISPR sequences…

  • Zika Virus Lab Report

    Detection of Zika virus Introduction: Zika Virus, also referred to as ZIKV, has become a global health epidemic. The World Health Organization declared a Public Health Emergency of International Concern earlier this year due to the increase of areas affected by Zika. Originating in the Zika forest of Uganda, ZIKV was predominantly found in areas of Africa and Asia. However, there have recently been reports of more than 36 countries with cases of the virus. (Chen, 1), (CDC) ZIKV is a single…
