Who’s afraid of the big bad Pit Bulls? Well, lots of people are no thanks to damaging myths, inexperienced owners, and the hyped up media coverage, that has been giving this breed of dogs grief for years. “Pit Bulls are famous,
Experiment H: Identification of an Unknown Organic Compound
The objective of this lab was straightforward. We were given an unknown compound and we were to perform an IR spectroscopy and as well as NMR spectroscopy. With the IR spectroscopy, I was able to name the functional groups I have on
Genome is a combination of two words GENE is segment of DNA containing code for a particular protein and OME which means chromosome which is threadlike structure made up largely of DNA molecules (Myers, 2007). These DNA molecules carry hereditary information. Genome of an organism is a complete

In the 19th century, a famous French chemist and biologist named Louis Pasteur, experimented and concluded that garlic had antibacterial properties. He showed how garlic killed bacteria. Many studies in many countries confirm that garlic has antibiotic properties that are definitely effective
The human race is currently doomed to a downward spiral. The population is currently increasing at an exponential rate, projected to surpass 12 billion people within the century, carrying capacity of Earth (www.globalchange.umich.edu). Barring housing shortage, sanitation and other problems
Magnesium was first discovered by the British Chemist known as Sir Humphry Davy in 1808. Before this chemist could only produce or obtain magnesium oxide. Sir Humphry Davy was the first to isolate this element from the magnesium compound element. He did this by way of electrolysis. Electrolysis

There are more than 12,000 species of ants all over the world.
An ant can lift 20 times its own body weight. If a second grader was as strong as an ant, she would be able to pick up a car!
Some queen ants can live for many years and have millions of babies!
