Title: Report on Ernest Everett Just Scientist: Ernest Everett Just - Male Date Of Birth: August 14, 1883 He was born in the discriminative conditions of the South and yet, Ernest Everett Just made his way up to become one of the most highly respected scientists of his time, graduating magna cum laude (with very great honour in Latin) from Dartmouth College in 1907, having earned a Ph.D. in zoology from the University of Chicago in 1916, and teaching at Howard University in Washington, D.C. from 1909 until his death in 1941. Just’s key contributions were served to enhance our understanding of the main parts of early biological development. He focused on fertilization, cell division, artificial parthenogenesis, the physiology of cell development, and the effects of dehydration and ultraviolet radiation on cell and chromosome structure. Ernest Just produced ground-breaking research in cell biology at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution in Massachusetts. It had been at the Woods Hole laboratories when he’d made and important discovery about cell cleavage, the successive cell divisions leading to the formation of the embryo.
There are many things you have to know before you become a neurosurgeon. Many early contributed to the field of neurosurgery, such as Sir William Mac Ewen and Harvey Cushing. Mac Ewen advanced the surgical field and also the neurological mapping of the brain which shows what part of the brain controls a certain bodily function. Harvey Cushing was an American who was responsible for developing the method that reduced the high mortality rate of brain surgeries to 10 percent and involved the use of x-rays to take pictures of the head. These outstanding men were just two of the many contributors to neurosurgery.
In the 1950s Danny decided to fulfill his pledge, so began the fundraising efforts. Danny and with the support of local business leaders took several years to raise the money to build the hospital. St Jude opened on February 4, 1962.

"I Have a Dream" is a 17-minute public speech by Martin Luther King, Jr. delivered on August 28, 1963, in which he called for racial equalityand an end to discrimination. The speech, from the steps of the Lincoln Memorial during the March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom, was a defining moment of the American Civil Rights Movement. Delivered to over 200,000 civil rights supporters, the speech was ranked the topAmerican speech of the 20th century by a 1999 poll of scholars of public address. According to U.S. Representative John Lewis, who also spoke that day as the President of the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee, "Dr. King had the power, the ability, and the capacity to transform those steps on the Lincoln Memorial into a monumental area that will forever be recognized. By speaking the way he did, he educated, he inspired, he informed not just the people there, but people throughout America and unborn generations."
We had tutorials, student groups, and patients [from] day one,” says Dr. Heinzl. To him this was the best motivation. Each student and doctor was asked to define what health was for themselves, something that Dr. Heinzl felt was a key component to his education as a doctor. During his studies in McMaster, Dr. Heinzl decided to take an elective course in Uganda, which during his stay, was at war. He made the decision to leave his elective and cross into the capital of Uganda to help those who needed medical attention.

I have personal experience with learning about these two jobs- I shadowed numerous orthopedic sports medicine surgeons and physician’s assistants during my senior year of high school as part as an academic internship. I observed many different surgeries and watched how these doctors interacted with all kinds of patients. This internship got me interested in these two careers, which is why I picked them for my research. An orthopedic surgeon operates on patients with musculoskeletal problems- either degenerative, traumatic, congenital, or just plain-old injuries. According to the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons ,half of what an orthopedic surgeon’s practice is geared towards are non-surgical, and the other half surgical management.
Due to Galen, the Roman Empire improved the knowledge of surgery and anatomy, as he was a genius. He was hired as the court physician of the Roman Emperor, and wrote over 60 books that have been the basis of medical treatments for over 1500 years. However, a chunk of Galen’s conclusions were incorrect, because when he studied in Alexandria, dissection wasn’t allowed and as an alternative, he studied animals. As Galen was well-known as a great doctor, his theories went unchallenged for 1000s of years. War helped improve the knowledge also, as the Greeks set up hospitals to help the wounded.
Providing life-saving blood and blood products to patients is a key component of the Red Cross mission to help people in times of emergency and disasters. During World War II, America turned to the Red Cross to develop a supply of lifesaving blood on a massive scale. This led to the establishment of the American Red Cross Blood Donor Service, which collected 13.3 million pints of blood plasma for use by our armed forces in World War II. After the war, the Red Cross introduced the first nationwide civilian blood program. Today, each year, the Red Cross collects 6.5 million units of
