The number of swimming brine shrimp for Trial 4 was slightly less than that of Trial 1. This could be due to oxygen levels in the lab, or it could be due to human error in counting the numbers of eggs from the procedure, or counting the numbers of swimming brine shrimp and dead brine shrimp in analysis. Additionally, actual amounts of ethanol concentrations could have slightly varied due to human error in measuring the ethanol consistently among groups causing slightly variable viability rates. Water may also have splashed out of the dishes, contributing to a flaw in measurement. In the future, the entire study should be performed by individual groups in order to aid elimination of error.
The Silence of the Limpkins by Susan Cerulean is about the overall degradation of Wakulla Springs. This story begins with the narrator describing how his colleagues and he have to put herbicide in Wakulla Springs every so often. As to clear the hydrilla, a plant imported from India because of a trade that overall massively impacted the Wakulla Springs ecosystem. “Hydrilla was imported to the United States from India for the indoor aquarium trade in the 1950’s. No one knew it would become a major invader of Florida’s lakes and rivers” (Susan Cerulean).
A solution to the Amex problem would be to temporarily shut down their company since they can’t handle being truthful to consumers based on their false advertising about the Blue Sky program. Temporarily shutting down the company would address the problem by making Amex realize what they are doing to consumers isn’t okay. The government has a federal agency called the Division of Advertising Practices that need to monitor advertisements more carefully because the government needs to stop these crimes immediately.The government should step up solving these crimes faster because Georgia Peanuts was selling salmonella-infested peanut butter to the public for MONTHS before the government did anything. Amex was scamming people for 9 YEARS before the government found

Shrimp Sauce “Bizarre Food” is a TV show about gross, unique, bizarre regional cuisine from around the world. In that show, Andrew Zimmern, the bald and hilarious guy, travels to many countries, searches for strange kinds of local food, typically shows how the food is procured, where it is served and, usually without hesitation, eats it. He ate fresh meat, snakes, ants, scorpions, maggots…. He came to my country Vietnam and ate snails with fish sauce in that episode of the show. I was amazed by his braveness in taste but I thought our traditional food still had more challenges for him with one of the most popular kinds of sauce.
It involves research, manufacturing, distribution, and marketing of various medical products.

Companies’ enterprise risk management (ERM) programs are especially important in the pharmaceutical
Washington Post- Informed Citizenry I read “For Old Drugs, New Tricks” in the Health section of the newspaper. This article is about a safe environmental way of getting rid of old pharmaceutical drugs. At the Leesburg Pharmacy in Loudoun County, a big, round fish bowl is used to hold the old pharmaceutical drugs, then the drugs are packed in cartons by pharmacy personnel and ultimately incinerated by a commercial waste firm. I believe that this is a great idea in removing unwanted drugs, it allows people to throw away there unwanted drugs at place that will safely eradicate them without harming the environment. There are many people who throw away their unwanted drugs by flushing them down the toilet or throwing them in the trash.
Furthermore, Valenzuela portrays fast food juggernauts like ‘KFC’ and ‘McDonalds’ in a deceitful and untrustworthy manner with the intended effect of evoking guilt and shame upon those who consume these foods. Valenzuela asserts that the ‘tower burger’, advertised at the cricket for KFC supplies ‘about a third of a typical child’s energy requirements’. This further authenticates his argument by exploiting his credentials as a medical researcher to illustrate the ‘junk food’ chain in a negative
Since insurance companies are not supposed to make an obese persons insurance premium higher than a healthy individual, then that obese person’s heart attack drives up the insurance premium of the healthy person. The obese are making it everyone’s problem by not putting down that cheeseburger because they know that the government is paying for their anti-cholesterol medicine. Balko claims that the government is getting “between you and your waistline” meaning that the government is interfering by telling Americans what we can and cannot do with our health. Congress is now considering menu-labeling which means that restaurants would have to send every menu item to the laboratory for nutritional testing. Meaning that the restaurants would not have the freedom to put whatever they want on the menu.
