(*note: this is different from previous discussion weeks). You will still be answering 4 questions total. Make sure you include the parts and question numbers in your post so we know which 4 questions you are answering.
You should employ scientific sources/literature including review articles in your research and be sure to use the AMA format. It should be detailed, comprehensive, well-organized and should have the appropriate language for scientific communication. The anatomical features of the disorder and its surgical treatment should be your main focus.
Current/Future Research (Including Clinical Trials
Please i needbelow every slide a full explanation of the slide bold points for me to present
The presentation has a 10 minute time limit. There should be at least 5 citations all in AMA format.
Use Assignment 2: The Outline to start preparing your presentation by outlining
your ideas. Flesh out that outline by identifying specific subject matter, photos and
videos you want to include. Storyboarding, a way of sequencing and organizing
your ideas for delivery in the presentation, is a great way to help with the process of
preparing a presentation. Here is a link on storyboarding:
2. Organize your presentation in a logical sequence. Be consistent in your format (use
of titles, fonts, background, overall look from slide to slide). Use font types, sizes,
and colors that are easy to read.
3. Consider writing out your presentation first and practice your narration prior to
recording. Be sure to project your voice so it can be heard well, enunciate, and
pause where applicable. When recording your narration, be relaxed, don’t worry if
you stumble here or there, but you should rerecord if you have too many “errors” in
4. Proofread and review your final product to ensure it is the final product you are
prepared to present to the class and submit for grading.
5. Make sure all photos and videos are working if embedded into your presentation.
And a last note on citation….
6. Make sure all videos, photos, figures, graphs, or research are cited properly in your

Many people have suggested that focusing on one macronutrient at the expense of others would be a superior diet. Thus, we have high-protein diets, high-carbohydrate diets, and high-fat diets. On the flip side, we also have low-fat diets, low-carb diets, and so on. In addition to these, there are other versions such as a gluten-free diet (which is necessary for those truly allergic to wheat), a vegan diet, a raw food diet, and even a blood type diet that is based on particular blood types. Reflect on your eating habits. Which type of diet do you prefer? Why do you prefer this type of diet to other diet options?
Your journal entry must be at least 200 words in length. No references or citations are necessary.
What can you do to lower your risk for getting cancer? Look at table 6.1 on page 110 of the textbook for ideas, but you do not need to limit your discussion to the four behaviors listed in the table. You can also access websites, such as cancer.gov and cancer.org, to determine what other risk factors might be applicable to your situation, especially if you are female and breast cancer is a concern or if you are male and prostate cancer is a concern.
Your journal entry must be at least 200 words in length. No references or citations are necessary.
Today we went over the anatomy and functions of the two divisions of the Autonomic Division: Sympathetic and Parasympathetic Divisions. We also studied the concept of dual innervation of most of the vital organs of the body, which leads to the following conundrum. If most of the vital organs are innervated by both the Sympathetic and Parasympathetic Divisions, and each of the divisions leads to antagonist responses, how does the vital organs (effector organs) know what response to carry out if they dually innervated from both divisions of the autonomic division. Meaning how does the vital organ know which part of the autonomic division is communicating to it if they are innervated by both parts?
The reviews should include: i) a written summary about each modification, ii) a critical evaluation of the strengths/weaknesses of the individual project with appropriate scientific rationale (focus on each of the scientific criteria listed below – do not simply comment on the presentation style), iii) scores (1 highest – 10 lowest) for each of the following criteria: Scientific Accuracy Approach Innovation Impact
You are a doctor in a
hospital, and a patient is experiencing trouble with her skin repairing itself
from a cut. The patient is also expecting a child, but the cells in the
reproduction development are experiencing malfunction in cell division.
the stages of each type of cell reproduction process from a normal patient
whose body cells can repair themselves and normal cell division during the
reproductive development of the unborn baby.
the disadvantages and advantages of each type of cell division.
how the patient experiencing problems with the cells repairing from the
cut and the child’s reproduction development malfunctions can alter
haploid and diploid cell development.
IMPORTANT: Additional resources are welcomed for more
support, but the grade associated with the information from the book designated
for this class will be the measurement tool to assess your paper.

What is a Gran-negative organism? How does the structure of a Gram-negative organism contribute to its virulence?Gran-negative bacteria cause infections and are resistant to multiple drugs and most antibiotics. These bacteria have built-in abilities to find new ways to become resistance an can pass along their genetic material. The outer membrane of Gram-negative organisms contains lipopolysaccharide (LPS), proteins, and phospholipids and contribute to its virulence. LPS is toxic and is classified as an endotoxin that elicits a strong immune response when infecting organisms.
What is an antibiotic? Which class of antibiotics works best for Bordetella pertussis?Antibiotics are any substance that inhibits the growth and replication of a bacterium or kills it. For Bordetella pertussis, the class of antibiotics that works best are Azithromycin, Erythromycin, and Clarithromycin.
What is a vaccine?A vaccine contains the same germs that cause a disease that have been killed or weakened in order to stimulate an individual’s immune system to produce antibodies.
Compare the difference between a cellular and acellular vaccine.Cellular vaccines are made from inactivated Bordetella Pertussis bacteria while acellular vaccines are created with inactivated pertussis toxin and one or more bacterial components……response 2:
1. Why is it difficult to grow Bordetella pertussis in a laboratory?-Bordetella pertussis is a gram-negative bacterium and is the causative agent of pertussis or whooping cough. Pertussis is respiratory disease that can be transferred from an infected person to others. As mentioned in the passage, the bacteria grows at 35-37 degrees which makes it very difficult because of the specific temperature required to grow. It is imperative that the media in the laboratory is made up of potato fusion, peptic digest from animal tissue and sheep blood also including many more. All these factors make it very difficult to grow the bacteria in a laboratory.
3. Discuss and evaluate the methods used to identify Bordetella pertussis.-There are several methods used to identify the bacteria. In many cases it appears smooth, raised and glistening with a zone of hemolysis. This is done through biochemical tests and direct fluorescent including serologic tests as well.
PART III1. What is a vaccine?-A vaccine is a substance described to help build up antibodies against the bacteria which minimizes the spread or growth of the bacteria. In this case, it is created by growing the bacteria to build the foundation of the vaccine. It Is explained in the article how the vaccine can have numerous side effects in the process such a high fevers, however an acellular vaccine has much less concentrated form than that found in whole-cell vaccines which reduced the side effects.
2. Compare the differences between a cellular and an acellular vaccine.-Cellular and acellular vaccines are both capable of generating high levels of antibodies against bacteria presented. There are multiple differences and the first being that acellular was created as an alternative to the whole-cell vaccine, including that it is also safer than the cellular. Although acellular has a positive in the reduction of side effects, it was made an alternative because the protection that it has against the bacteria does not last as long as it should.
Although it seems simple, washing your hands is one of the most important things that you can do to keep yourself from catching many of the common infectious diseases such as a cold or flu.
For this assignment, you will be completing a hands-on laboratory investigation that demonstrates the importance of hand-washing. Complete the Hand Washing Report (Attached)
), and work through all 5 questions. Now answer MY questions!
What determines the maximum number of infected cases in Q1? How does this relate to Covid-19? [2pts]
In Q3, you explore how the rate of contagion varies. Epidemiologists refer to this number as the Rt number. What was the Rt value in Arizona 3 months ago, and today (Links to an external site.)? How can we reduce Rt values?[2pts]
In Q4 you explore the idea of herd immunity (Links to an external site.). For effective herd immunity (like the coverage gained by the measles vaccine), about 94% of people need to have antibodies- either from vaccination, or from surviving the infection. What percentage of the US population has currently got antibodies for Covid? (provide your reference). [4pts]
