Addison’s Disease
Extra Credit
04-13-2011

Addison’s Disease affects the Endocrine system. With this disease your body can’t produce enough of certain hormones. In Addison’s Disease your adrenal glands produce too little cortisol and sometimes small levels of aldosterone. Some of the symptoms of Addison’s Disease are as follows; one is if a person is feeling a lot of muscle weakness and disease. Another symptom is weight loss and loss of appetite also occurs. Some people also experience darkening of the skin, low blood pressure, and low blood pressure. Nausea, diarrhea, and vomiting could also be a sign of Addison’s Disease. These symptoms usually develop slowly over several months. Addison’s Disease is usually caused by a problem with the adrenal glands themselves. A lot of the time the body’s self-defense mechanism, the immune system, mistakenly attacks the adrenal glands. When these attacks happen it destroys the outer layer of the glands. Long-lasting infections such as HIV or tuberculosis can also harm the glands. Addison’s disease can also be brought on by body spreading cancer cells. All treatment associated for Addison’s Disease is in the form of hormone replacement therapy. One drug you could use would be oral corticosteroids. A doctor would prescribe these pills to you to help replace aldosterone. Other medicines such as hydrocortisone, prednisone, or cortisone acetate may be used to replace cortisol. Another form of treatment would be corticosteroid injections. These injections are normally used if a patient experiences vomiting when taking the oral corticosteroids and can’t keep the pills…...

To Kill a Mockingbird Courage Essay

...children portray 1 character, Boo Radely, as a “malevolent phantom”, a monster and also an inferior. These 3 children, Scout, Dill and Jem, essentially treat Boo as if he weren’t human, just like Maycomb treats Tom Robinson, a black man wrongly accused of rape. The kids and the town of Maycomb act on the same social level, treating Boo and Tom essentially the same way. A malevolent phantom, a monster, and his own name describes the prejudice these children felt against Boo, but the kids were naive and young and there image of Boo was only based on a game and silly stories. Their “game” was based on the false pretense that Boo was a frightening creature and the whole idea was to lure Boo to come out of his home. Unknowingly they did accomplish this goal. Once Boo left treats for Jem and Scout in a knothole of an oak tree. Again Boo came out during the cold night when Miss Maudie’s house burned down and secretly covered scout with a blanket. Even if Boo enjoyed the kids’ presence the children thought otherwise. Maycomb had the same feelings about Tom Robinson. When Tom testified he humbly said that he felt sorry for Mayella, but Mr. Gilmer, angered and frustrated, replied “you felt sorry for her, you felt sorry for her?” (Lee, pg. 200). He was implying that no black man or woman can feel sympathy for a superior white man or woman. Because he was black and because of his “unmitigated temerity” he was falsely accused of rape and sent to prison. Boo and Tom were treated......

...Throughout centuries many people always provoke someone from doing situations they will regret and others have their way of planning a scheme to try to hurt another. In the reading Julius Caesar by William Shakespeare; According to Calpurnia she is persuading Caesar not to go to the capitol because she believes there are many threating omens and is trying to make him understand that he might get hurt. However, Decius Brutus is trying to be sly and insisting him to go or not he will let the others down. This shows that both Brutus and Calpurnia are trying to persuade him in a both positive and negative way; but it’s all up to Caesar to know if it’s great idea. Calpurnia is very frightened that a war might go on and Caesar might get hurt; therefore she’s insecure of letting him go to the Capitol because she has overheard other men talking about how it can get. For example, Calpurnia says, “The noise of battle hurtled in the air, Horses did neigh, and dying men did groan,” This is describing how those wars are like and what it can lead too. Her plan is too try to get Caesar not to go. On the contrary, Decius is doing the opposite he wants Caesar to attend the Capitol and tells him if he doesn’t go the people will be disappointed. This is important because, he is in two situations and both of them have their pros and cons. Furthermore he states that at the end if God’s choose he will die. Another essential point is that Calpurnia not just overheard from the men but also she......

To Kill a Mockingbird

...pleasant. In To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee, the mockingbird symbolizes Boo Radley, Atticus Finch and Tom Robinson, who were peaceful people who never did any harm. To kill or harm them would be a sin. Scout's father, Atticus, tells Scout and Jem, “Shoot all the blue jays you want, if you can hit'em, but remember it's a sin to kill a mockingbird." Atticus is portraying that they are innocent and to harm them would be a sin. The mockingbird symbolizes these three characters because it does not have its own song, the mockingbird only sings other birds' songs and is seen through the other bird’s voices. The people of Maycomb only knew Boo, Atticus and Tom by what others said about them. These characters do not really have their own voice or song, they are only known for what others say about them. Atticus is a lawyer in Maycomb, a typical southern town where racial discrimination is the normal behavior. When he decides to defend Tom Robinson a black man, the people in the town were threatening him for doing so. Though Atticus never showed any sign that he doubted what he was doing. Atticus saw the evil in his world and was only trying to protect his children from it. He simply denied the natural behavior to colored people and fought against it. Atticus took the hatred, pushed it aside, kept his head high and stayed true to himself. He never hurt a soul and was just as innocent as a mockingbird. Boo Radley went through his life never wanting to hurt a fly. He left gum,......

Boo Be Scared

...Ignorance is defined as the lack of knowledge or information. Like the “prisoners” in the cave, people can be completely oblivious to the outside, and the world that surrounds them. Plato’s “myth of the cave” can be analyzed that the group of people being imprisoned were tricked into believing that the shadows they saw were that of “reality”. Of course for some the thought of escape crossed their minds, but for others that is what they believed life was. Ignorance is easily compared to being imprisoned in a cave. Although we see what happens all around us, do we really understand what we are seeing? For few the answer is yes, but for most this is life and we are just meant to go through it. The same is to be said for those in the cave. Some wanted to escape and see what “reality” truly was, but most believed that was all it had to offer. For those who understand it’s a lesson learned every day. We know are meaning on this Earth and we understand our destination. We realize life is a game instead of a joy ride. And we realize those who play the “game” best, come out on top. As for those who simply just sit back and enjoy the “ride”, they get what they get and will never know if they were meant to achieve more or not. Although these people may not be stupid, they are considered ignorant because they don’t necessarily lack knowledge, but they lack the fact that there is always more to things than what you may see or hear....

...Introduction to Antarctica: Most people know that Antarctica is the coldest place on Earth, but did you know it is the worlds largest desert? or that a giant lake is locked beneath the ice? or that huge volcanoes can be found here? Antarctica is the fifth largest of the Earth's seven continents. It is the coldest continent located at the southern end of Earth. Antarctica is surrounded by the Southern Ocean. It's remote location and harsh climate of freezing weather and extreme winds makes it impossible for a permanent human population. The continent was circumnavigated by Captain James Cook in the 18th century, but he never saw it. In the early 20th century explorers were obsessed with reaching the South Pole and eventually it was Roald Amundsen who was the first to reach this point in 1911. History of Antarctica: Around 200 million years ago Antarctica was part of the super continent Gondwana. Joined with Australia, Africa, South America, India and New Zealand. Over time Gondwana began to break into pieces and slowly moved to their present positions. The word Antarctic comes from the Greek word 'Antarktos' meaning south of the bear or opposite north. Antarctica is the fifth largest of the Earth's seven continents. It has an area of nearly 14 million square kilometres. Antarctica was the last continent to be discovered. It was first sighted early in the 19th century, Scientific expeditions and seal hunters explored pieces of the Antarctic coast but had not......

...The holocaust is a point in history everyone at the time had different views on. There were the minority groups such as Jews and disabled who were victims, the normal German people who had to just stand back and watch because otherwise they would be prosecuted. But then there were the Nazi perpetrators who did everything they could to bring pain and misery into the lives of those around them. All these people had different reactions and opinions on the holocaust, these opinions were shaped due to the surroundings of each individual and ‘The boy in the striped pyjamas’ has characters from all these backgrounds and more. Each person with their own view on the holocaust that changes as they move different places, encounter different people and learn more about it. The main character is a young German boy called Bruno who is the son of a Nazi solider. He enjoys reading adventure books and exploring, so when Bruno’s father gets a promotion that insists he moves house Bruno sees it as a sad situation leaving his friends but a chance for him to explore. In the beginning Bruno is incredibly naïve of the situation. He knows very little about the holocaust and about what his father’s work entails. In the opening scene Bruno and his friends are pretending to be flying aeroplanes this shows he has some awareness that war is going on, but as he is playing it as a game it really just shows how young he is. When Bruno arrives at his new house when he picks his room there is a window that......

To Kill a Mockingbird

...two Finch siblings? Possibly Lee meant to establish Boo within the plot to emphasize the children’s friendship. Perhaps this can be explained with; the Greek philosophy of Pythagoreanism, the Bible, and the compatible characters of the children. The story of how these children met was arbitrary; however, these were the years that will never be forgotten due to the mystery of Boo, the youngest within the Radley family. Arthur “Boo” Radley is a character in the novel that keeps Dill, Jem, and Scout together by arousing their curiosity. Boo could possibly be a psychotic ex-con and this only drives the kids deeper into the rumors about him. Boo is a mysterious recluse that leaves the entire neighborhood filled with questions. The mystery of Boo Radley is what initially brings the children together as a group and continues to be the glue that holds them together. Lee perhaps incorporated the Pythagoreanism a philosophy established by Pythagoras. This philosophy involves the theory of the perfection of the number three. The number three is commonly recognized as the number of harmony. When taking To Kill a Mockingbird into account, the harmony shown between the characters of Dill, Jem, and Scout is discernible. The theme of the number three is also an important concept in the Christian religion which is a recurring theme in the novel. The applied perfection of three had to be attributed by someone, so the possibility that Boo Radley is the person that the author uses to......

...Ronald Braham EN1320 Compostion 1 11 December 2014 I am sitting on the curb writing this letter to you, waiting for my friend to help me get my stuff off the ground and pick me up. Thinking about why out of the blue, you kicked me out for no reason, after three years and I don’t even get an explanation for your actions. Let me make a few things clear for the both of us. I know we had our bad times and we fought about trivial matters, but every relationship has its ups and downs. You managed to bring out the best in me and for that I will always consider you a pivotal part of my life. There are things that you picked up from me that you have never done in past relationships, adventures we have taken together, and arguments that turned out into the best moments ever. There are plenty of fish for you and I in this world to be with and I am sure we will find another partner. But it will be just that “a partner,” where as you and I were made to be together. If you really think about it your next partner is going to try to top moments that you and I had as our first time moments. Every time he gives effort to doing adventurous things with you and making first time memories my face will be in your mind as you hesitantly disappoint this new gentleman with the words “my last man and I already did this.” I can give you plenty of reasons why I am the man for you. There is an old saying that I live my life by if it’s truly yours and it’s meant to be then set her free......

This form of risk cannot be diversified within the company because it represents that one company’s fragility within the market itself. B. a. An active approach toward rebalancing the policy brings competent flexibility to multiple time periods and a more favorable strategic asset allocation. b. Indexing to asset increases the portfolios time frame and returns will not beat the market. The Index will mirror the value but won’t duplicate an independents stocks deficiency. c. Adopting a policy portfolio different from your peers can be viewed as aggressive and will differentiate RFM’s returns. Policy should reflect the companies risk willingness and asset allocation should be represented as cross-sectional. C. The type of investment program being suggested is tactical asset allocation because it involves making short-term adjustments to asset-class weights. This is primarily based on short term predictions among asset classes of performance. D.

...Austin Cheatum 20 July 2016 U.S. History Book Review “The Killing Zone: My Life in The Vietnam War” is not an argument for or against the Vietnam war. It is simply a personal account of infantryman and a lieutenant from 1967 to 1968 during the Vietnam War. Before I read this book, I understood the Vietnam war to be one of the most traumatizing wars if not the most traumatizing war in the history of our nation. Fredrick Downs, the author of the book, was the lieutenant who was assigned to lead Alpha One Six. Reading this book, you will see the day to day experiences of his platoon. Fredrick was excited to become a soldier for his country but didn’t realize the pain and suffering that is inevitable while at war. Downs and his platoon alternate between the searching of jungles on destroy missions and the assignment of watching the three small bridges, labeled “101, 102, and 103”. It is early in this command that the first casualties under his watch occur. They came across many obstacles through their journey such as: mines, booby traps, ambushes, frags (grenades), scorching heat, monsoon rains, air assaults, tunnel complexes, digging up graves, etc. Immediately when they entered the jungle, struggles began. They were attacked a swarm of hornets. Shortly after, they were plotting and making a strategy to drop their “superior firepower” onto the Vietnamese and it dawned on them that they should do leach check. Downs ended up having three leaches sucked onto his body. He......

...MEANINGS OF BOT, BOOT, BOO, BLT BOT (BUILD, OPERATE TRANSFER) BOT finds extensive application in the infrastructure projects and in public private partnership. In the BOT framework a third party, for example the public administration, delegates to a private sector entity to design and build infrastructure and to operate and maintain these facilities for a certain period. During this period the private party has the responsibly to raise the finance for the project and is entitled to retain all revenues generated by the project and is the owner of the regarded facility. The facility will be then transferred to the public administration at the end of the concession agreement, without any remuneration of the private entity involved. Some or even all of the following different parties could be involved in any BOT project: • The host government: Normally, the government is the initiator of the infrastructure project and decides if the BOT model is appropriate to meet its needs. In addition, the political and economic circumstances are main factors for this decision. The government provides normally support for the project in some form. (provision of the land/ changed laws) • The concessionaire: The project sponsors who act as concessionaire create a special purpose entity which is capitalised through their financial contributions. • Lending banks: Most BOT project are funded to a big extent by commercial debt. The bank will be expected to finance the project on......
