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

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.
