The chrysanthemums is a symbol for Elisa love and emotions and her happiness. The chrysanthemums give her so much love and happiness that her husband couldn’t give her. The chrysanthemums is a symbol for her broken heart and her pains of being neglected by her husband. Her husband never for once praises her or her chrysanthemums. Elisa always working hard on her garden because the love she has for her chrysanthemums is been happy. One of the theme in the story was i think it was the way her husband treating her like she is not his wife, she work and try to please her husband but he always turn and treat her like trash."The right kind of life for a woman" (344). According to what I understand about this statement is that her husband is too blind to see the beauty in his wife. “You watch your fingers work. They do it themselves... They know. They never make a mistake" (343-4). This means that the way she working on her garden trying to make sure everything is on their places. In this story there were a lots of symbols that Elisa using to take care of her beauty garden. One of the symbols is her pot where she always put her Chrysanthemums seeds whenever she wanted to plant on her garden. She is a very strong woman who always tries to make herself happy by working on her beautiful flower.
During the Holocaust, many townspeople didn’t bother coming outside and sat as bystanders peering out the window as their Jewish friends get lined up outside. Jews were herded up then murdered like sheep unknowing of what’s gonna happen until it happens. Although everyone acted as sheep, it was that they were fed lies about Jews, they didn’t see any harm until it was too late, and they didn’t want to be killed.
Ma Tzu-ts’ai who is addicted to plant chrysanthemums refuses the idea of selling the flowers in order to make a living. Because Ma is so deeply in love with chrysanthemums that he is willing to travel to different places to purchase the best and rare varieties. When Ma heard that someone in Nanking has some varieties not seen in the north, he immediately “set out for Nanking, where repeated requests earned for Ma two little shoots, which wrapping with the utmost care” (Pu, 140). Because Ma does not listen to T’ao’s idea of selling chrysanthemums for money, so T’ao starts the business himself and earned a lot of profit out of it. In a short period of time, T’ao become richer and richer. After T’ao arranged the marriage for his sister and
Plant cells have selectively permeable membrane that allows selective substances to penetrate into the cell. Cell membranes are consisting of lipid layer that are made up of phospholipids. (Essays, UK.2013). These phospholipids are amphipathic in nature, which have phospholipids head and tail respectively. Phospholipids heads are hydrophilic and tails
This experiment, which was used to explore the Theory of Evolution created by Charles Darwin. The use of natural selection was apparent in the artificial modification of an organism's traits which aided in this investigation. Through this experiment the Wisconsin Fast Plant was used. It is a fast-growing organism developed to improve the resistance to disease in cruciferous plants. This plant aids scientist in the exploration of environmental effects on population due to the speed to which is matures and reproduces. Artificial selection was stimulated by the selection against plants with few hairs(trichomes). Trichomes create a wider variation which means it is polygenic. The plants that had only a few trichomes were
Happy Tuesday! Seedlings 2 began their day outside on the playground. We explored so many environmental objects and we moved in response to music and rhythm as we played with musical instruments with Ms. Clara. When we returned to our classroom, we explored floating green objects in our Sensory tub. Later we exercised our gross motor skills as we practice walking with our walker. I do hope you enjoy another fabulous day with Seedlings
If I had lived during the Holocaust, the hardships would include lack of shelter, starvation, and survival. To start, people struggled to find a safe shelter. The book Milkweed is about a boy who has to change the locations of his shelter to be able to survive. I know that during this time period a lot of people who were jewish were taken to concentration camps were they were forced to work and were treated harshly. Because of this people had to change the location of their shelter to escape getting caught. Additionally, people also had to face the struggles of starvation. Since hitler and his nazis were killing off a lot of people, the people who owned food stores could no longer sell food. This meant that people couldn’t get the same amount
The açaí palm (Euterpe oleracea) is native to Trinidad, Brazil, and throughout the Amazon rainforest region. It grows among the flooded soil along estuaries of the Amazon river and is traditionally consumed by peasants because of its filling nature and its abundance and availability in its natural habitat. The açaí palm provides both food and construction material, via the berries, palm hearts, and palm fronds that are used as thatch roofing. Açaí has become extremely popular among American and European markets in recent years and although it is not yet a mainstream product, it has caused a substantial shift in the means of production where the fruit originates. If exports continue on their current upward trajectory it is troubling to consider the effects that this would have on açaí-producing nations given the long histories that Central and South American countries have of imposed dependency on
When monosilicic acid and water travel throughout a plant’s root system and into the plant, the acid collects inside tissues. Developing microscopic inorganic silica molds; called phytoliths. Phytoliths are produced in almost every environment in the world, consisting of silicon dioxide, water, organic carbon, and trace elements of aluminum, iron, magnesium, and several others. The transparent molds can be one to over one-hundred micrometers in size. Phytoliths can serve the plant and us in several ways. It permits some plants to stand stiff and allows for sun exposure. It also assists the plant in trapping dangerous elements that could harm the plant. Fields including paleontology, archaeology, primatology, and environmental science greatly appreciate the existence of phytoliths. Phytoliths live long after the plant dies; they exist for tens of millions of years, and in extreme temperatures. Ecofacts such as phytoliths are tremendously beneficial when finding a plant’s family, genus, species,
Duckweed is a simple, small aquatic flowering plant that grows in colonies, which form dense coverings on water surfaces. They are one of the most vigorously growing plants on Earth. There are many types of duckweed, but throughout this experiment the Lemna trisulca type of duckweed was used. Each leaf of the duckweed plant is called a frond and a colony is called a Microcosm. The fronds are a vibrant, green color when they are living, but they are white when they are dead. Duckweed is an important plant because it grows rapidly in ideal conditions. It floats on water surfaces, making it easy to harvest. In addition, the tissue is soft so it can be processed simply. It could be used as a food source for animals in the future, as the
Xylella fastidiosa was found destroying olive trees in Spain last year and most recently was found in almond orchards in Andalusia. Xylella fastidiosa causes the infected plant to dry out and look as if they had been burned, leading this pathogen to be known as the “olive tree leprosy” and the “Ebola of olive trees.” Xylella fastidiosa was first found in Italy in 2013 and last year officials destroyed over 1 million olive trees in an attempt to stop the bacteria from spreading. Spain is known to produce half of the world’s olive oil and in June of this year found the pathogen in almond trees in Valencia, an olive- producing region. It is believed that Xylella fastidiosa originated in America, one strain was found in California and the southern
The African Daisy history goes back to when the ancient Egyptian gardens by their temples. Sometimes the flower where use to treat illness. This flower produces an abundant amount of brilliant colored flowers that attract butterflies. It closes at night and opens in the morning. This daisies leaves are fragrant. Most insects do not like to eat the African daisies although there are a few bugs that like to taste juicy leaves of this plant. These bugs are the Aphids, Whiteflies, and Earwigs. Of course, you will need to kill the slugs which are technically not insects. The African Daisy may grow from 1 to 6 feet tall, with colorful 2 to 3-inch blooms. It is grown as an annual blooming from summer to frost in most hardiness zones except
The Kumara Plant is a deceptively simple story. The author –Apriana Taylor, has created the character of Pomare, the narrator of the story. He’s an ordinary, down-to-earth Maori character, in some ways. Pomare’s story tells us about his difficult upbringing, knowing your culture and heritage is relevant and that the kumara plant symbolises something to him–this is something we can all relate to.
Plant hormones otherwise known as phytohormones are chemical substances synthesized within the cell for use in regulation, cell to cell communication, and growth and development of the plant. These hormones are usually transported to a different cell to elicit a response. However, there are some which are able to act within the cell in which they were synthesized. They are synthesized in low concentrations and they are small in size for ease of transportation through the cell wall. The location at which they are synthesized varies as such it is not limited to a specific cell type. Depending on the situation, the response to the hormones can vary greatly. They can act as inhibitors, stimulators, and are also able to affect the biosynthesis of other hormones. Plant hormones usually act as a group through “cross-talk” between hormones and other signals in order to coordinate various responses necessary for the plant. 1- After biosynthesis of the hormone has occurred, they are conjugated so as to remain chemically inactive. Once they are active or have been de-conjugated, they will be able to bind to specific receptors so as to enter signal transduction and elicit a response. In signal transduction, the protein can go through either protein phosphorylation or proteolysis to achieve downstream effects. In phosphorylation, protein kinases are able to add phosphate groups to activate a protein. Conversely, dephosphorylation can occur through the use of protein phosphatase which
This current society has caused ruin to the Earth by damaging the natural ecosystem. This current society has also caused the inhabitants much grief by mans greed creating stress upon the Earth and his fellow man. Botanica Metropolis must be formed because there is only one Earth and the inhabitants must preserve it for all and all who are yet to come. Botanica Metropolis will be different because it will focus on the Earth and harmony for all creatures that inhabit it. Botanica Metropolis does have similar characteristics of the current living conditions from todays society and that is the current laws of moral decency are still in effect from this current society. Botanica Metropolis is an establishment full of people who live off the land efficiently.
