Chapter name- “a second chance”

The night came where I would finally take Alyse to the Knicks game I promised to watch with her. I wore my flyest outfit with my diamond stud, gold chain and Steve Francis jersey to represent my Knicks. I hopped into the taxi eager to see Alyse.
I knocked on the door and heard Gavin crying, Alyse’s mom opened the door holding Gavin.
“Ty! Nice to see you, Alyse will be here soon come in!”
I sat on their couch and avoided the spot with the weird spring. Alyse came downstairs wearing tight jeans and a Knicks hoodie.
Even in hoodies she looked fine “damn shortie you lookin hot” Alyse blushed “aw thanks Ty” she kissed Gavin and said goodbye. Taking a new taxi, Alyse sat close to me,
“Ty I’m so excited”
“Me too shortie”
We were on our way to Madison square garden.
The line for food was a pain in the ass but I just wanted the night to be perfect for Alyse. The hot dogs were way to over priced. Getting to our seats was another pain. Tip-off between Knicks’ Channing Frye and bucks Andrew Bogut began the game. Throughout all 4 quarters the score was close when the Bucks pulled ahead even by a little the Knicks would come right back. And final, 4th quarter 20 seconds left, 110-112 for the Bucks and it was Knicks ball, no timeouts. I could feel Alyse squeezing my hand, she was so into the game. Nate Robinson brought the ball up dribbling just above the logo until 10 seconds left. He called for a screen from David lee. 5 seconds left, Steve Blake rushed to guard him but it was too late. Robinson pulled up for 3. Alyse screaming and the whole arena on our feet, a moment that would take a second seemed like 100. As we watched to ball in the air, *swish* it was good the whole area went crazy Alyse looked at me and kissed me in excitement. For the rest of the night we talked about the game until we final settled in at a pizza place.
“Alyse, I had a lot of fun tonight with you boo”
“Oh Ty thank you for taking me, this meant a lot to me”
“Of course anything for you”
As we ate it was quiet because we were both starving.
Alyse checked her cell phone with a surprised face
“Ty look at the time! I need to get home, Gavin has preschool tomorrow.”
“Aight no problem. ”
I called a taxi.
In the car she rested her head on my shoulder. I could tell she was tired.
I walked her to the front door and she squeezed my hand tight and kissed me. I didn’t want her to leave so early.
“Goodnight Ty.”
“Goodnight babe.”
She kissed my cheek and walked inside.
I decided to walk home that night just thinking back to a great night with Alyse.

All about me

Steak is notably, hands down, a long time favorite. With the soft wheezing of the gas, my fingers fumble rapidly to push the red button trying to avoid the stench of rotten eggs filling the air. A bright yellow and orange glow illuminates the burnt greased grill. Patiently waiting for the temperature to increase, the dancing flames burn the bits on the seasoned grill to darken charcoaled dust and the aroma reminisce of balmy summer days. Finally, the bright, seasoned fresh raw meat falls on the ready grill. Crackling and insignificant pieces of grease take to the air. The white smoke faintly dances as the once red meat leisurely darkens. The burning grills, mark the darkening meat, declaring a state of readiness. Conversely, the grill has yet to make its mark on the other side. The spatula clutches the almost done meat and flips it over. The tantalizing smoke dances across my face, tautening me. Happily, the mouth, watering grilled meat is ready.

LSD

lysergic acid diethylamide more commonly known as LSD is a psychedelic drug which causes altered thinking, open and closed eyes visuals, an altered sense of time, and spiritual experiences. LSD is usually colorless, odorless, and tasteless in its purest form. LSD can be consumed in two types of forms being liquid and solid. the liquid form is usually injected where the solid is swallowed or dissolves underneath the tongue and its appearance is similar to that of a sticker. after taking effects usually are realized after 30 minutes. Unlike many other drugs LSD is none addictive.

the effects of taking LSD can be both physical and psychological. physically it can reduce appetite, wakefulness, and many others as effects vary and as for psychological it all depends on the environment surrounding you at the time you’ve consumed LSD. in a calm environment LSD is much more enjoyable but in a loud or unsettling area the hallucination can be too much for he user. the drug can also have long term emotional or psychological effects and cause changes in personality. LSD can also trigger major panic attacks of extreme anxiety.

mutation story

imageimagePart 1
Hypertrichosis strikes again. Poor innocent unsuspecting Harry Thompson. He is so excited to see his first born but little does he know, he just passed this ugly mutation to his baby girl. Harry has always been a hairy guy but it didn’t bother him so much cause he’s a guy. When Harry’s baby girl starts growing up, she’s gonna have a few challenges. Image, a teenage girl with more hair on her body and face then the boys. Shaving isn’t going help. In fact, it’s just going to make things worst. With this gene, the side effects of shaving is scaring. I guess with modern technology, she can try laser hair removal but that’s expensive, a long process and with Congenital Hypertrichosis, it’s almost a lost cause . Too bad Harry didn’t have a boy. He can’t pass this gene to his son.
Just the other day, Hypertrichosis hit Will Pane. Will had just gone through extensive chemotherapy trying to get rid of cancer, then losing his hair, months of being constantly sick then finally he gets good news that he is free of Cancer only to be burdened with this mutation gene. Excessive hair growth in certain parts of his body. Fortunately, with this being Acquired Hypertrichosis, Will has a better chance of removing the excessive hair. May cause some discomfort but not as grueling as chemo.
Interestingly, the first recorded Hypertrichosis was in 1648. During that time most people called someone with this mutation “werewolfs. Even after all this time, no real cure has been found. This is a spontaneous mutation that is passed through our genes but can skip one or two generations before it appears.

Part 2
1) “Hypertrichosis causes” and “hypertrichosis”
2) Google
3) Determine what is the question and what is it asking and find proper information
4) I compared websites information (Wikipedia, www.dermnetnz.org, and hypertrichosis.com)
5) Use more detailed questions to find certain parts of the topic in greater depth

Surface area VS volumes

image image image image image image

What is the difference between surface area and volume? Let’s say you have a rubix cube and with the height, width, and length all being 10cm, although being a big cube. The big difference between surface area and volume would be the way you find each one, to find the surface area of our example you would multiply 10 by 10 as you would trying to the area of a 2d figure but because each side of the cube is same you would multiply the overall number you got by 6 since a cube has 6 equal sides giving us an area of 600cm squared . As for the volume of our example you multiply the measurements of the base, height, and length so in our case 10 cubed or 10 multiplied by 10 multiplied by 10 again giving us 1000cm cubed.

The app I chose for this assignment is “Complete Chemistry App”. Overall I really enjoyed his app very useful. The 6 questions I asked myself for this app were: “does it find what I’m looking for?”, “Is it confusing or difficult to use?” , “will the information be reliable?”, “can it quickly be understood?”, “does it bring anything new to the table?” and lastly, “will I ever come back to the app if I need to?”

This app I found was very helpful giving you the same information you’d find in a textbook or periodic table but in your pocket. The app is very easy and straight forward categorizing all the information into 4 main sections as seen in the photos and with every press on the screen the subject becomes more specific. I found the app reliable and up to date with everything its showing because in science new things are always being found so it’s good to have an app you can trust. Although it is very help helpful it does not bring anything new to the table or anything we’ve never seen before from an app. Lastly, in my final opinion on this app in future terms I think I would likely come back to this app if there was time I would need to study for a chemistry test, quiz or assignment.
