Human activity has changed Aylor almost entirely. It has started as a swamp, but human activity has changed the biome entirely from swampland to deciduous forest. The area around Aylor used to have moist soil. Now, the soil is prone to dry periods. Some of the soil has cracks in
American Philosophical Society. In 2014 she was named the recipient of the National of the National Medal of Science. She was inducted into the National Women’s hall of Fame in 1998 for her contributions as a distinguished scientist and advocate for education, science and public policy. She was appointed into the Royal Academy of Engineering in 2012. She received an award from the National Coalition of 100 Black Women in 1982.
According to the article, “Rhoda Mary ‘Rosa’ Abbott : Titanic Survivor,” Rhoda Abbott, 35, of Providence, Rhode Island, was a survivor of the Titanic. According to Robert Bracken, she was the only known woman to have survived after being thrown into the icy water after the sinking. All other women survived from the lifeboats. Unfortunately, her two sons did not make it. Although she survived physically, the experience traumatized her (Bracken).
My name is Wendy Thrane and I would like to take this opportunity to express my interest in becoming a substitute teacher within the Lawndale Elementary School District. I graduated with honors from the California State University of Dominguez Hills, earning a Bachelor of Arts degree in Liberal Studies with an English Literature emphasis. Once I received my BA degree, I continued to attend California State University, Dominguez Hills and obtained my teaching credential.
Thank you for trusting in us to lead Anthea House this year. It is remarkable what a little faith can do! It’s been a wonderful journey to be able to be part of a team, from my wonderings around whether it will work or not, and despite of them having the

History is so often the story of great accomplishments, done by great men. Rarely do we see the victories of women celebrated in textbooks or documentaries. While reading about the history of chemical discoveries, I often come upon paragraphs lauding the discoveries of Antoine Lavoisier. In the fine print, however, is another name: that of his wife, Marie-Anne Lavoisier. Little is known of her, but her importance in the history of chemistry cannot be overstated. In a time when women in the sciences were more rare than satisfied French peasantry, her contributions in the late 1700s set her apart. She translated essays so that her husband may examine their truths. She acted as scribe, as lab assistant, and as scientist herself. Still, she disappears
I would love to have a conversation with Rosalind Franklin, an English chemist who discovered the double helix structure of DNA by using X-ray crystallography. However, Watson and Crick ended up getting the credit for the discovery because they were the first people that published on the double helix structure of DNA. I would want to talk to Rosalind Franklin because she made a huge contribution to the biology field, and although not many know of her, without her contribution, Watson and Crick would not have confirmed the double helix structure. Furthermore, DNA is my favorite molecule and I would love to talk to the person who discovered its structure, which is a large factor in the function of DNA. Rosalind Franklin is a huge inspiration
When asked about female scientists, most people identify Marie Curie. Marie Curie was a brilliant woman, discovering two elements of the periodic table, Radium and Polonium, as well as winning Nobel Prizes in Chemistry and Physics. However, most people know her simply as the woman who died from her radioactive experiments.
It actually took sometime to see Isadora Duncan as an important person in changing the country because of the way she would danced. Not until she went and travel to perform at a theater at London, that's when they started to like what they saw in the way she
Isadora Duncan has been one of the most enduring1 influences on 20th century culture. She always wanted to be different. She loved to dance, but she didn't like traditional dances. She refused to learn classical ballet. Instead, Isadora listened to the music and moved naturally. She walked, jumped, or just stood still and moved from side to side. No one had ever danced like that before. She was the creator of modern dance.
Aylmer’s science is a part of him that dominates most of his life. “Aylmer’s scientific mind controls Georgiana’s passive nature” (Eckstein, 516). Science is a powerful source that can be good and bad, in this case Aylmer’s science is bad because it has limited his mind to things of only physical elements rather than the unknown. With such a science based mind at all one wonders how he could even love another human, but with his science obsession and love for his wife his obsession becomes a mix of taking his science and fixing his wife. Aylmer forgets that sometimes his science was wrong, that the immortality in exchange for unique discovers has consequences, sometimes ones that even involve a death (Eckstein, 514). Despite all that though
My inspiration to be physically active in my life is my Ukrainian dance coach Alanna. I meet her when I was eleven and admired her immediately.
Edison, Insull and Mitchell contributed to creating an integrated electrical infrastructure in America by ‘relating everything to a single central vision, one system less or more coherent or articulate’. Edison invented electrical systems, Insull was managing electrical systems and Mitchell financed their expansion. Edison’s electric lighting systems threatened the existing gas lighting industry and introduced people to an entirely new type of energy. Insull is remembered for creative innovations that transformed the utility system into a more modern one. This paper discusses the history of electricity in America and how an invention needs to fit in a system that may not yet exist. This paper relates to the course theme of how engineers shape society through innovation, using their problem solving skills as well as technologies and the authority that they possessed.
