Possessing an inner membrane, as well as an outer membrane, and made of phospholipid bilayers and proteins, five specific parts of the mitochondrion and their unique purposes are listed below.   First, lets explore the outer mitochondrial membrane that surrounds the organelle and contains a large number of porin integral proteins that allow molecules to travel through the cell membrane pores in what is commonly known as passive diffusion from either side of the membrane to the other.  In order for larger proteins to enter mitochondrion they must bind to large multi-subunit translocase of the outer membrane proteins that actively transport them across the outer mitochondrion membrane while lipids can be moved between mitochondrion and the endoplasmic reticulum membrane.   The second unique part of mitochondrion is the inner mitochondrial membrane that has proteins with five distinct functions including those that perform oxidative phosphorylation... read more

Containing small beginnings and ends, and large middles, Expository paragraphs can probably best be defined using the hamburger as a model in that the top bun is the topic sentence, the one that summarizes the main idea of a paragraph, adds cohesion to the paper the paragraph is found in, makes some kind of claim related to the overall thesis of the paper, and helps organize ideas in the paragraph and the whole paper Topic sentences should also be the catch line that draws the reader's attention and expresses the writer's perspective on the paper being written, therefore, topic sentences need to be clear and concise, as well as present a controlling idea or argument. The next part of the expository paragraph is the fillings, or body sentences of the paragraph. The first one of these is known as the Directional Sentence that serves the purpose of naming the evidence the writer uses to back up their claim in the order it will appear in the paragraph. This sentence should immediately... read more

In my blog entry entitled "British Literature: The Case Against William Shakespeare" I presented the argument some people, especially the Anti-Stratfordians, consider in an effort to discredit William Shakespeare, who is highly regarded as the World's Greatest Playwriter of All Time, as the true author of his famous works of art. This entry will now attempt to present positive evidence that William Shakespeare, the "Bard of Avon," did indeed write his wellknown plays. Referred to as England's National Poet William Shakespeare is best remembered as the creator of many of the world's most popular plays such as The Merchant of Venice, A Midsummer Night's Dream, As You Like It, King Lear, Coriolanus, The Taming of the Shrew, Twelfth Night, All's Well That End's Well, Love's Labour's Lost, Romeo and Juliet, Julius Caesar, MacBeth, Hamlet, Othello, and Anthony and Cleopatra, approximately 38 plays in all, that he allegedly wrote between 1589 and 1613, many of which... read more

In the case against William Shakespeare of Stratford-on-Avon, who many people believe to be the World's Greatest Playwriter of All-Time, we will attempt to present alternative theories, including the Anti-Stratfordian Theory, that support the notion that William Shakespeare was just a mere front to hide the identity of the real author, or authors of these plays, because the real writer could not accept public credit for writing these famous plays, or, at least for whatever reasons there may be, did not desire it. It was in 1848, about 232 years after William Shakespeare died, that the writer's authorship of his wellknown plays was first widely questioned in Joseph C. Hart's The Romance of Yachting, a report that claimed Shakespeare's plays were written by many authors, with Sir Walter Raleigh the main writer, in an effort to advance a political and philosophical system they could not publicly assume. Other criticisms of William Shakespeare as the writer of these plays include his... read more

Three very different types of students may be present in any classroom and the Teacher should be well versed in how to best provide the proper learning environment for all of them. These classifications of learning styles may include kinesthetic learners, "Do-ers" as they are commonly referred to, who tend to perform better when doing physical activities such as creating ceramic pots in Art Class, building projects, performing labs in Science Class, and playing sports, instead of listening to the Teacher lecture the material. Kinesthetic learners may also have a very difficult time trying to learn by simply listening or reading material. They have high energy levels, are generally impatient, and have the ability to focus on two different tasks at the same time that are related to what they are doing. My best tip for teaching kinesthetic learners is to keep them creating. Visual learners are students that need to see an example to better learn the material being taught... read more

Strongly based on the number of bystanders witnessing the attack the Bystander Effect is a social psychological phenomenon where the presence of other people reduces helping behavior to the victim of the attack so much so that none of the bystanders provide any help in the emergency situation. Reasons why the Bystander Effect seems to occur include the more bystanders there are the less likely any one of them will notice the reality of the situation taking place, assume responsibility for taking action to help the victim, or even notice the emergency as being a real problem, which is the first step necessary for a bystander to intervene, with the cause of this reaction possibly being attributable to the fact that most people are raised to believe it is impolite to stare at another person in public and keep their attention to themselves. According to the basic principle of social influence that states conformity is the act of matching beliefs, behaviors, and attitudes of the... read more

Developing good study skills takes some practice but with a little bit of staying with it, and some practical guidance in helping to develop good study skills, students can improve their habits and become more successful in their school work. These are 10 highly recommended study tips I have used throughout my teaching career to help my students become better in this area of their academic accomplishments. 1. Don't put off starting to study the hardest material to the very last minute. These areas require extra effort so they should be studied throughout the session. 2. Establish a standard daily schedule for studying with short breaks of about 10 minutes time between subjects you are studying. 3. Read something every day and write a short note about what you read. This helps with remembering the material you read about for a longer period of time. 4. Take notes of the material your Teacher puts out in class remaining focused and considering what is being taught. This... read more

Three schools of thought that were prevalent in the United States regarding our involvement in World War One included Neutrality, the Preparedness Movement, and Moralism, which I will now break down for you starting with Neutrality that was exemplified by President Woodrow Wilson attempting for the first 2 and 1/2 years of the war to keep the United States out of the conflict. Wilson also kept the American economy on a peacetime basis and made no preparations for war. Other supporters of American neutrality involving World War One were the Pacifists, led by William Jennings Bryant, Henry Ford, Senator Robert M. LaFollette, Senior, and the Woman's Leader Jane Addams, who wanted to keep America out of the war at all costs, the Liberal Internationalists led by President Woodrow Wilson and President William Howard Taft, the Atlanticists who were led by President Theodore Roosevelt, Senator Henry Cabot Lodge, and Senator Eliku Root, business leaders, such as Henry Ford, who wanted to sell... read more

As a published Author of many articles covering a wide range of topics including music, health, travel, sports, and much more I find creative writing to be a talent I had buried deep inside of me, and did not even realize it when I first began my writing career, as many students also struggle with before their creative juices burst forth. I can point you to about 400 of these articles that I have had published on alone, with about 250,000 people who have read them. This does not include any of the other print and online sources my writings have been published in. In addition to writing articles I have also had Country songs I have written demoed in Nashville, which is known as the Country Music Capitol of the World, created a pamphlet about the Appalachian Trail, and even co-written a Greek cookbook. I am also currently in the process of writing a book about the volcanic legacy of the state of Oregon. I am certified to tutor Writing, English, ACT English, Vocabulary,... read more
