Mutation Story

Muenke Syndrome  

By: Kaiden Hofmann                           

The Story

Mr and Ms Heights is having a baby said to come somewhere in December. Its bin already three months. And inside this mothers belly is a baby th-2
being created. But Somethings not right in the baby. What is it? A gene is mutating, starting early in the babies life in the womb. The gene’s FGFR3, which is a specific genome, that is located in chromosomes. It plays a role in bone development and maintenance. Unfortunately this certain FGFR3 in a chromosome, it’s proteins is overly active and is mutating causing the babies bones to fuse together. Also many allowing only 33%-100% of hearing lose, well as development delay. We will just have to see what type of symptoms this baby shall proclaim.

Not much is know though how this mutation and how it happens. It’s about 8% of all disease that come in, and have bin recorded down.

This type of disease is uncommon to have no visible changes you can see, around 8% to be exact. But if taken and X-ray and show one of many symptoms. For example. Wide set eyes, small deformed head, and flattened cheek bones!

This boy is about to give his mother a freak out when she finds out her new born baby has a uncommon disease!th-3

5 Months Later  

Waaaaah! Wahhh!  The baby is born. At an average weight and hight. But already the doctor notices that the baby has a deformed head. So as protocol he give the new born an       X-ray. He checks the baby and sees that he has Muenke Syndrome. This babies disease is rare and not treatable in most cases. The baby seems to have a 32% hearing lose, well as a flattened cheek bone. Its going to be rough news to tell this family and their new born baby!

This is one of many mutations that a family and new born have to overcome. Its rough enough already having cancer as one of the most common mutations among people. Its a side track of being a human. But also all life has to go through with this on some rare occasions. Some good, most bad. All we can to do is prepare yourself that if anything goes wrong. You can pick yourself up, and hope you got to serious of a problem. Besides most people in the world had some type of mutation, just weather or not it was a small change like hair colour, or some huge change like Muenke syndrome.

I did find out that some of the info on the websites where false. It took me a while, but I noticed that if I go on more and more websites I can see the connections in what really is true, and false.

 

I did need to research on a lot of this disease. None of my family member have this type of Mutation. So I had no connections. I guess thats why I even picked this, because it was new and fascinating.

 

I used as much as I could of the steps on my previous assignment DDDDDD strategy. (Define, Discover, Dream, Design, Deliver, Debrief.)

 

I do feel I could of done better in the depth of my story. I could have gone more into it. Gave the family a background that might of been a theory in how this Mutation could of started. Thats probably the biggest thing I could of expanded on. Its just on perspective on how you perceive it. With all things aside, I still really think that Mutations is a somewhat fascinating thing, in how one change can cause you to have all these things. If you were lucky enough to have a positive effect on the mutation. I think it could be the key to unlocking cures for diseases, as well as super powers!!!

Science App Review, Easy Electricity

Intro

This is an app that i picked up from the App Store called Easy Electricity, Its is where Electricity iths everywhere around us. It can be changed, created, and even burt to the point where you might have to restart. Easy Electricity is a game that teaches you the basics about wire connections. As well it
shows you how to use different sources of power rather than just batteries.

 

 

Define

This is a science app that teaches you how to use and connect wires to make circuits. It helps to get kids some of the basics of circuits.

 

Discover

Is it a reliable source for learning.

Can it be used for higher level science students.

Does this app cost money.

Does it have different ways of teaching you how to work with circuits, than just connecting wires.

Dream

I Dream about this app and how it can help me through this science unit, and hopefully others will follow. But not only, I hope that this will save the world from killing off the population through electrocuting themselves by not using the proper methods on how to not make a incomplete circuit. So use this app, and it might just save the lives of people.

 

Design

I used the App Store because it can be mostly all the time a good place to get apps on things like school or anything to do with your daily life.

I can share this info with the world through Instagram. I will also make a separate account so that I can put all of these ideas of the Easy Electricity app into this account open so the whole world can see. They might just learn something.

 

Debrief

I think this process went well. I got already some followers on Instagram, and I think this might be my new way of learning and doing projects. I already have bin looking for something to help me learn, and i think I found it. Its easy and not to hard to do. I still feel that i needed more insight on the app but It is my first time doing this, So there will always be room for improvement.

 

 

My Digital FootPrint!

My Digital Footprint.images-1

Intro

Everyone has a print, some big some small, some here, some there. Everyone decides how there footprint will shape there future. Describe to people how and what there like. Its your chose in how it will turn out, so choose wisely, you might not be able to turn back.th

Questions asked the the average person.

1: How might your digital foot affect your future opportunities

But before learning the dangers we must learn what a digital footprint is. A digital foot print is a record of everything you have done on the internet or anything online. Then gets stored in some time of database. No matter what you do. You can’t get to back. Now How might your digital footprint affect your life. Imagine Joe was trying to get a job fancy job as a lowyar, But your a person who likes to party. Then one day when you where partying, some person takes a pick of you at the party then posts it on Instagram. # Dude losses it. It has like 500 likes. Then the next morning at the day of the interview you walk in and the people who wanted to her you say no and walk you out of the building. You might ask yourself why? Well everyday more and more businesses are looking at employees social media and or digital footprint to see what they really are like outside the office. You might look hard working but then do drugs in the night. Its an easy way for companies to narrow down the employees, and the true hard working employees. So looks like Joe’s not getting this job. Not only jobs can be affected by your digital footprint but even your daily lives. Look at thawed your friends and family have treated you, and think to your self has in any way your digital footprint changed in anyway how people have looked at you? Then was it for the better or worse? Most would say better. But one man named Conner, lived in the USA Texas. Conner had a scholarship in Psychiatry, and was going to be a Psychiatrist. Then one day, he went to a party where there was a lot of drugs and alcohol. Plus the scenery wasn’t the best. Conner did say he didn’t have any but a couple of drinks. (I don’t think thats true.) Anyways the picture got out of him at the party, and the person owning the Psychiatry firm fired him on the spot. Funny how things out!

 

2: Describe how to make your digital footprint a better one to remember

Some can’t change there digital foot print, its just to late. But for this who’s just started, heres how you can make it for the better.

Step one: Think about what you post before hand about how this could affect the way you look at yourself and who you are.

Step two: Make sure you ask the other people that are in the photo if its ok.

Step three: And just be responsible with your digital footprint!

 

3. What information did you learn that you would pass on to other students? How would you go about telling them?

All I want to say is that your digital footprints, can be used and decried in different ways. Especially when your applying for a job. But the best and safest way to have a good Digital footprint is to post, good thoughtful things, and being able to look back at your work and show it to your kids without embarrassment. But thats just being safe about your own work. What about other people like your friends they also can be th-1affected by something you have posted about them being at parties all the time.So how would you protect yourself from that you might ask. Well you can’t actually, you just might be lucky to find that post and ask your friend to take it down. Theres not much else you can do. So next time you post something ask your self how can I be safe and responsible before posting on the internet. You might have just costed yourself and someone a great opportunity at a job. So next time you post on the internet, think to your self is this what i want to be known for, and is this how I’m going to be remebered.
