Substance Misuse HACE – Evan Wray

Substance Misuse Preventions

Learning about drugs and knowing the effects and long term symptoms is a must. Drugs are severely bad for you and your state of health. You can effect yourself and those who are around you. There are social, physical, and emotional effects to drug and alcohol usage and the different levels of problems. Lets take a walks rough of some problems.

life is surrounded by the good and bad things people encounter. Bad things such as the different life dangerous substances. Some physical consequences for oneself that may occur when using bad substances may lead to self harm, an overdosage of drugs, alcohol poisoning, and possibly driving under the influence and hurting yourself in a car crash. A few emotional consequences are depression, being stressed often, and severe anxiety. There are also social consequences such as loosing friends, grades may drop majorly, and possibly become distant from your family members.

Not only are there consequences for oneself, but it may effect other people including those around you. Physical consequences being substance misuse during a pregnancy, being drunk, and driving under the influences with others in your car causing severe injuries and even life threatening situations. Some emotional consequences may be things such as those being disappointed in a friend or someone close by, being stressed, and possibly angry or mad. A few social consequences could be getting kicked off a local sports team, being taken advantage of or being used by those people that you think are your friends, and loosing friends.

Coming to think about substance misuse really narrows things down and makes me see the bigger picture. I now realize the serious mistakes that you may fall into from substance misuse. Some situations I know to avoid are to stay away from those who aren’t your true friends and those that you know have bad profiles. Rules to live by to avoid these occasions are always say no to drugs, don’t let others control you, and drugs aren’t cool.

Meiosis Blog Assignment

Prophase I: Homologous chromosomes pair up and non-sister chromatids exchange genetic material.

Metaphase I: Homologous chromosomes pair up at the centre/equator of the cell.

Anaphase I: The homologous chromosomes are separated and are pulled to the opposite side by spindle fibres.

Telophase I: One chromosome out of the homologous pair goes to the pole of the cell.

Prophase II: Now only one chromosome of the homologous pair in each cell.

Metaphase II: The chromosome create a line at the equator of the cells.


Anaphase II: The sister chromatids move to the opposite pole of the cell. Once each sister chromatid is split it is now considered to be a chromosome.
Telophase II: The spindle fibres start to disappear and a nuclear membrane forms around the new sets of chromosomes.

Cytokinesis: The daughter cells now separate.

1) I think hat meiosis I is similar to mitosis because they both have the same number of chromosomes and they split up evenly.

2) 3 similarities between meiosis and mitosis are they both have the same stages – prophase, metaphase, anaphase, telophase. They both start their methods with the same number of chromosomes and they both go through cytokinesis which is the separation of daughter cells.

3) 3 differences between meiosis and mitosis are that meiosis creates more cells, has more steps in the procedure, and that meiosis has 2 types of chromosomes.

4) Meiosis because cells split, and when they split they loose half of their chromosomes. This enables them to pair up with different gametes which results in further reproduction.

Cystic Fibrosis

My host had been experiencing lung symptoms like coughing, severe wheezing, chest infections, and he always seemed to be out of breath. The chest infections could be as bad and even worse than pneumonia. Over time my host’s lungs are damaged and aren’t in the best condition. A gut problem my host faces is blockage to his pancreas. This affects my hosts height and weight and even constipation. These aren’t all the conditions that my host face but they are some of the most common ones.

I am the genetic mutation inside of my host, Johnny. The disease I cause is called Cystic Fibrosis. I am caused by the mutations of proteins in the CFTR (cystic fibrosis trans membrane conductance regulator). I am one of the 1500 mutations that can cause CF. Deletion in my three nucleotides will cause a loss of phenylalanine resulting in CF. I am the mutation P and the chromosome 7. The 7th chromosome has from 900 to 1000 genes. Different mutations may happen on this gene which will be the deciding factor to the severity of the disease. You cannot control me and cannot get rid of me. I will be apart of you forever. I am usually found in around one out of every three thousand newborn children. Someone can only inherit Cystic Fibrosis if both of their parents have CF genes. If you inherit only one CF gene you are known as a carrier and could be passed on to your future children.

Some treatments that Johnny’s doctor recommended to him were for him to so a physiotherapist, use a prescribed inhaler, and take antibiotics for his lung problems. Also for him to use a nutrition guide for his pancreatic problems.

You have all probably heard of our galaxy, the Milky Way, but you probably haven’t heard of the new irregular galaxy, Lastingrous Way. Lastingrous Way was found and named by the Scientist, Evan Wray. Being an irregular galaxy, it has no particular shape. He quotes, “while looking through my telescope I had spotted something different and unique that had never been seen by the human eye.” This galaxy is filled with stars, dust clouds, various gases and asteroids containing metal. This galaxy has a globular star cluster. It has the most stars out of any galaxy in the universe that we know of for now. The globular star cluster is tightly clumped stars and contain a spherical shape. It has millions of variable stars. These contain the same brightness throughout time and have a variety of new and old stars. We estimate that this galaxy has been around for about 12.3 billion years.

This galaxy is out of the ordinary, it contains one of the largest planets ever, the planet of Meletex. You’re probably wondering what type of star the planets in this solar system revolve around. They revolve around the star called Duxe. This star is around 3 million times larger than our star, the sun. It also has the same effect as the sun, it produces light for the planets. Instead of the regular light that the sun produces, Duxe produces a different colour of the spectrum, it is blue. If you look into a high end microscope such as the Hubble Space Telescope you would be able to see the Lastingrous Way. In the Lastingrous Way’s solar system there are different planets apart from Meletex. The planets of the galaxy are Roxen, Connix, Zuxlin, and Altoix. They all have similar types of terrain. Some consist of high mountainous ranges and others have deep crater holes.

When Evan Wray was looking through the telescope he recorded to have seen life forms on the planets of Meletex and Connix. They both have a creature that has never been seen, it’s called the Metaceros. The Metaceros obtains a blue colour as it has absorbed the colour from the star of Duxe. It looks like a rhinoceros with metal shrapnel sticking out of it. There is more than just creature life on these planets, they also have plantation and other signs of life. The plantations feed off different lethal gases and grow slowly. The lethal gases seem to have an impact on the plants life. They grow very large but after a long period of time.image

Three Poems


Away: by James Whitcomb Riley, American poet (1849 – 1916)

I cannot say and I will not say
That she is dead, she is just away.
With a cheery smile and a wave of hand
She has wandered into an unknown land;
And left us dreaming how very fair
Its needs must be, since she lingers there.

And you-oh you, who the wildest yearn
From the old-time step and the glad return-
Think of her faring on, as dear
In the love of there, as the love of here
Think of her still the same way, I say;
She is not dead, she is just away.

This poem could be recited at a funeral. The reason this poem would be good to recite at a funeral is because it is for the right occasion, has a strong meaning behind it and it is very deep. The poet explains that the person who has passed away is not dead, but is just away. The tone of voice that the poet uses is suitable for a funeral and the people who attended would understand what the poet is saying. This poem would connect with the audience very strongly.



Tin Wedding Whistle: by Ogden Nash

Though you know it anyhow
Listen to me, darling, now,

Proving what I need not prove
How I know I love you, love.

Near and far, near and far,
I am happy where you are;

Likewise I have never learnt
How to be it where you aren’t.

Far and wide, far and wide,
I can walk with you beside;

Furthermore, I tell you what,
I sit and sulk where you are not.

This poem would be good to recite at a wedding because the tone of the poem is mellow and it suits that specific occasion. The poet explains love and compassion towards one another. When the poet says “proving what I need not to prove, how I know I love you, love” he is trying to say that he doesn’t need prove that he loves her because she should already know that. The context of the poem would fit in great at a wedding and the audience would understand that the poet is trying to explain love.



Beyond The Years: by Paul Laurence Dunbar

Beyond the years the answer lies,
Beyond where brood the grieving skies
And Night drops tears.
Where Faith rod-chastened smiles to rise
And doff its fears,
And carping Sorrow pines and dies—
Beyond the years.

This poem would be good to recite at a graduation from a father or mother to a son or daughter. The poet try’s explaining that as the years goes on more things start to happen and life gets harder. The tone of speech that the poet uses is just perfect for that occasion and fits in really well.
