to the body of Daphnia. For example, an experiment may test the effects of toxic chemicals on Daphnia, meaning that Daphnia can act as water quality indicators (Ren et al. 2009). The lack of Daphnia in certain areas signifies the presence of a toxic chemical, if the habitat meets the living requirements of Daphnia (Villegas-Navarro, 2003). Therefore, Daphnia act as indicators of environmental health as well as chemical responders reacting to potentially harmful

The additional species, Daphnia Pulex are a derivative from Daphnia Magna, which can be in located rain filled tire ruts and any stable body of water. These daphnia are established in fresh water and maintain the highest concentrations of daphnia compared to other species can be found in lakes and ponds. Daphnia magna is a water flea dependent on environmental conditions to breed and survive. Conditions such as temperature, salinity and oxygen levels can be detrimental to the lifespan of these organisms (Elenbaas, 2013. Within their existing environment daphnia consume algae, bacteria and detritus; it is this continual uptake of these organisms, which maintains the food chains integrity. Daphnia also host a number of bacteria, fungi, nematodes,
Copper is a naturally occurring element that can be found in all plants and animals. A certain amount of copper is necessary for health, and the human body has developed a way to maintain the proper level of copper in it (Minnesota). Even so, large concentrations of copper, and general long-term exposure, can have a negative impact on the body. Symptoms include stomachaches, vomiting, diarrhea, liver and kidney damage, and even death (Lenntech). Exposure to copper comes from many areas, but the most common one is through the water. Copper is commonly found in plumbing pipes, which can lead to high levels of copper in drinking water and fresh water sources due to erosion. Lakes and streams are also treated with copper to prevent algae overgrowth (Group).
Daphnia are Crustacea. Crustacea are animals that have ten legs, four antenna and two main body parts. Most live under water. Some examples of Crustaceas are Crayfish, Shrimp, and Crabs. Daphnia are filter feeders. They eat small particles of algae and bacteria. Some are carnivores and eat other water fleas. Daphnia live in fresh water places such as ponds and lakes. They are found living in the vegetation or near the bottom of the body of water.
For the first two and last two days of my trip, I will be living with a host family in Delmas 83. They will charge me $20 (U.S.) a night, for a total of $80 (U.S.) by the end of my trip. Luckily, the orphanage that I will be volunteering at will be housing the volunteers in a local guesthouse in Croix des Bouquets, which is only a few blocks from our actual job site.
The Daphnia is commonly referred to as the water flea and has been under research by scientists for over a century. Daphnia can be located in and around permanent bodies of water. Daphnia, although can be found in any water, are usually found in freshwater lakes especially near ponds and high vegetation areas. Daphnia are too small to live in strong currents so they branch to ponds and small lakes where they live off plankton.
John Barth, and acclaimed writer said, “Everyone is necessarily the hero of his own life story” (Hero/Heroism). To me that means everyone is a hero in one way or another. Volunteering is an example of being a hero. You could be helping disabled people by volunteering at Camp Courageous. Deloras Propst volunteers at the Camp Courageous Garage Sale here in Manchester Iowa. The garage sale raised $115,000 last year for the camp (Propst). This is one reason I count Deloras Propst as a hero.
Roman Sionis was born into one of Gotham City's wealthiest elite families, to parents who were utterly self-absorbed, caring more about their social status than their son; moments after his birth, the doctor carelessly dropped him on his head. Sionis parent’s didn't really care about the recent injury to their new born; all they cared about was social fame. Another horrible incident happened as young boy, while at the Sionis estate he was attacked by a raccoon.This incident was shoved under the carpet by his parents and he was ban from talking about it to anyone. He thought of the raccoon like a thing behind a mask of eternity.
The evil started with Tantalus. Tantalus sired Pelops and the sons of Pelops, Thyestes and Atreus. The murder of Pelops’ bastard son Chrysippus brought down the wrath of Olympus and an ancestral curse on the House of Atreus. Demeter bore Zeus a daughter Persephone as a result of an incestuous union. The mother concealed Persephone in a subterranean cave guarded by serpents but Zeus desired her and bad-tempered and cunning transformed himself into a winged serpent to rape her, their coupling creating Dionysus, and another union between Zeus and Europa gave birth to Minos, the ruler of Crete. And so forth, from one generation to the next, the bitter legacy endured across the generations of Agamemnon, Cassandra, and Electra, and inspired the dark tragedies of Homer, Sophocles, Euripides and Aeschylus.
I Diagnetus now stand before you in regards to another request. I would like to propose that the great city of Athens fund all of the traditional arts and religious festivals for the next year. This will cost about 18 talents, but isn’t everything a play has to offer worth it? Before you pass judgment, I want you to consider the following.
Posidonius, a Syrian born man best known for his Greek philosophy of ancient times. In the year 135 B.C. Posidonius was born, little did anyone know that the birth of this one man would change the way philosophy was studied and approached. Posidonius’ family were Greek settlers, however, it was very clear that Posidonius had no interest in his home land. As expressed through his writings, he often mocked the people of his town “Clutching knives on their belts and filthy, rusting spears…dragging behind them donkeys piled high with all manner of wine, food, flutes, and musical instruments- prepared for a party rather than a battle”(Freeman, Pg. 11). As any other Greek boy in his social class, Posidonius studied reading, writing, music, and poetry
In the Merriam-Webster dictionary, a star is defined as “a natural luminous body visible in the sky especially at night.” Stars make up the brightest masses in the universe. Take the sun for instance, a big fiery ball of gas that provides light and life to the whole entire world. In the biblical story of the Magi, the three wise men follow a shining star which leads them to their light and savior, Jesus Christ, a baby who brings brightness to the whole world. A star is more than just a ball of gas, a star is a sign of hope, dreams, and courage. A star is the light at the end of the tunnel that makes the world just a little bit happier, a little bit stronger, and a little bit brighter, and no matter how small, one star can still brighten a midnight
