Hegemony's Achievements


Quark (2/13)



  1. Behold the power of wikipedia.
  2. Perhaps with a scale or some H&E staining it would be easier to tell.
  3. That poll makes me want to move out of the US... well, more-so.
  4. The price on the Centrino Core Duo is coming way down. You can get one for around $1000. Here's a good one that has everything you need.
  5. Support for ME might as well have been pulled right when it was launched. No amount of tech support could make that clunker run properly.
  6. The only show I go out of my way to watch is "house".
  7. Ummm... do your own homework. You could have at least asked in a more respectful way.
  8. All a lot of fuss if you ask me (not that anyone is). People get all riled up because influenza mutates so rapidly. It contains 8 pieces of nucleic acid, a cell can be infected by two strands, and the resulting particles cab be a mix of the two strands. But if one of those virus particles is particularly dangerous to humans it still has to infect a human. It may not multiply well in its current host, a human may never come in contact with it. It will eventually happen, but I believe we'll have the time necessary to prepare.
  9. I'm sure that's because you're used to seeing the baby chimps that hang out on people's heads and with michael jackson. When they grow up they get a little hard to handle... you know, hormones and such.
  10. HPV strains that tend not to produce warts are often more likely to cause cancer. HPV proteins bind to p53 (tumor suppressor) which causes cells to become transformed.
  11. Yeah, who asked you to think of such ridiculous things? It can't possibly be valuable in any real learning environment. It's just an exercise in the ludicrous. Not a single thing we can conceve of can live IN a black hole.
  12. That agar look a little funky. I'd be interested to see the recipe. There are a lot of types of agar that won't grow fungi very well.
  13. Most med schools will require math through calculus. You might not work with a lot of calculus problems as a doctor but it's going to make you more well-rounded. In my opinion make sure you have an advanced biostatistics class, it will be much more useful to you.
  14. I just read an article that talked about using bacteriophages instead of antibiotics. Seems like it may be the next wave. Apparently it was first done by some soviet doctors when an unsuspecting man slept next to a discarded drum of nuclear waste because it was warm. He recieved major burns. His wounds became infected and the doctors applied bandages filled with bacteriophages. The man survived. A professor tells me that some companies are working on dressings designed to release bacteriophage into a wound at a constant rate.
