Aneuploidy is the type of chromosomal mutation that is responsible for causing Turner syndrome.
Aneuploidy is a type of chromosomal mutation in which there is presence of an abnormal number of chromosomes in a cell. The chromosomes may be incomplete (missing) or excessive (extra). For example, if a human cell had 42 sex chromosomes instead of 46, or it had 48 chromosomes instead of 46, it is said to be anueploidic in nature. Aneuploidy occurs during cell division when there is improper separation of the chromosomes between the two cells. Aneuploidy is responsible for many genetic disorders including Turner syndrome.

Western culture, sometimes balanced with Western enlightenment, Western lifestyle or European civilization. Five factors which are contributing to Europeanization of culture refers to;
- the heritage of social norms
- moral implications
- established inheritances
- faith system
Addition to above five factors, particular artifacts and technologies originated or associated with Europe have a major contribution in Europeanization of culture and their identity across the continent.
Europeanization is defined in many ways, such as;
- Europeanization as variations in outer regional borders. That includes the national extension of the rule of governance and the extent to which Europe as a mainland matures a sole political place.
- Europeanization as the advancement of organizations of governance at the European level.
- Europeanization as principal insertion of general and sub-national modes of governance. It means the distribution of charges and controls between various levels of governance.
- Europeanization regards connections with non-Europeans and the way Europe attains a position in a wider world hierarchy.
- Europeanization as a political scheme intending at a combined and politically powerful Europe.

Treaty of Tordesillas in 1494 was forced on Spain and Portugal by the Pope. The Pope basically said that all lands in the New World belonged to Spain and all new non-Christian lands in the Eastern Hemisphere belong to Portugal. No other Catholic countries can do anything in those areas without the approval of the owner.
The pope basically drew two lines on the globe setting the border. The western line started at the north pole cut half way through Greenland and ended at the south pole. The new world was everything to the west. Problem is that it ran through a chunk of Brazil which is why Brazil is an ex-Portuguese colony.
The Eastern line starts at the North Pole runs through siberia, through the pacific just west of Japan, and cuts Australia in half. Of course, Australia hadn’t been discovered yet. Everything to the the east of this line is the new world.
Obviously, this treaty didn’t hold up well, but the reformation gave the protestant countries an excuse to explore the new world since they didn’t have to take orders from the Pope. Even so, France, a catholic country, ignored it too.
Really, the only country that was effected by the reformation in the exploration of the Americas was England. All the other countries, changed their religion once and then went to war with the nearest catholic country. Sweden became Lutheran and stayed that way. The Dutch Republic became Calvinists and stayed that way.
England kept switching. First it was Catholic. Then, Henry VIII made it protestant. Then, Henry’s daughter Mary I made it catholic again. Henry’s other daughter Elizabeth I (with the two hit movies) made it Protestant again.
Years latter, Oliver Cromwell over through the monarchy, executed the King Charles I, and established a Protestant fundamentalist religious military dictatorship. He outlawed drinking,smoking, gambling, theater, dirty books, sports, prostitution, and anything generally fun. He would have made Saudi Arabia proud. Basically, all you could do is work, pray, and die. Sex was allowed for creating children, but you couldn’t enjoy it.
When Cromwell died, the people of England said enough was enough and brought back the King. Charles II kicked out the fundamentalists and brought back drinking, smoking, gambling, dirty books, sports, prostitution, and having fun during sex. Incidentally, those were also all his hobbies.
This brings us to the famous Pilgrims. They were part of Cromwell’s crowd. They kept agitating a return to the no-fun policy. They annoyed everybody. They weren’t persecuted for practicing their religion, they were persecuted because they kept trying to force their religion on everyone else. Sort of like Southern Baptists.
Charles II was the most easy going monarch in British history. Do realize how annoying you have to be to get him to throw you out.
Charles’s brother James II was obsessed with turning Great Britain catholic again. After four years of trying, they kicked him and his followers out.

In the aftermath of World War II, the influence of the Soviet Union extended through the countries that were invaded by fascists in the Eastern Front, such as Poland, Hungary, and Bulgaria.
In January 1947, elections were held, resulting in the communist Republic of Poland. Previously elections were intervened so the communist candidates could turn victorious, and the members of communist resistance continued to resist in the territories near to Ucrain but fierce soviets intervention turned to mass arrest where all kinds of executions, deportations, and imprisonment took place.
In Hungary, the Soviets imposed harsh conditions that seized key raw materials and interfered in the internal affairs and social, policymaking. The Red army set some vigilance with police to persecute political opponents and enemies of the state.
In September 1944, The Soviets declared war on Bulgary, under the argument that this country allowed its territory where the Wehrmacht (Germany) crossed and continued to press the frontlines eastwards. The Red Army motivated a coup d Etat where communists also set favorable conditions for the creation of a communist regime.
-This countries became to form the Eastern bloc, a period that lasted several decades until the 1989 Revolutions set an important amount of political and social changes in Europe in East and Central Europe, causing most of the socialist states, formerly puppet states to Soviet Russia to collapse and engage in democratic process and incorporate a different economic model.

Ovation-by definition- is show of appreciation from an audience, for a person’s accomplishments or flaw.
“Everyone deserves a standing ovation because we all overcometh the world.”
A person’s accomplishment could be how they made a positive change in this world, strong leadership- that makes them a effective leader or simply helping others. A person’s flaw- mistakes in life, sin or even guilt should also be considered an appreciation- an ovation for representing mankind’s flaw and that humanity makes mistakes, fulfilling at least one deadly sin such as greed, lust, selfishness etc.
Thus, regardless of a person’s achievement or flaw- a person deserves an applause for, not the least, living in this society and this world that we are all living together and dying together.
That was just the introduction.. the best part is yet to come.. now it’s your turn!!
Here are other pointers to talk about in your essay:
Shakespeare’s famous line “All the World’s a stage. That agrees with your line: “Everybody deserves a standing ovation…”
Shakespeare explains that men and women are like players: they live, and die, some being celebrated and some forever living in solitude till their death. Shakespeare states the world is a “stage” which symbolizes that mankind is in its peak. The world is changing everyday: little by little and humanity is falling behind.
Due to our world turning into machinery: factories, an automotive future: where humans only job to live (entrance) and to die (exit) the famous humans remembered and the flawed not recalled.
This is according to Shakespeare’s imagery.
I don’t know what grade your in, but I think simplifying Shakespeare’s word of mouth in your essay would be handy and useful as it has strong references of your quote, and agrees strongly in your essay.
Hope this helps 🙂

When red crosses with white flowers to give pink flowers, we are looking at incomplete dominance, i.e. the offspring is a blend (pink) of the parents’ characteristics (red or white).
Since we’re given in the question two pink flowers crossed to give 25% red, 25% whit and 50% pink, we would be thinking of a punnett square between RW and RW, to give
Since both parents are RW, that makes both parents heterozygous.
The following equation of parabola is given:
p(x)= – 5 x^2 + 240 x – 2475
where p(x) = y
This is a standard form of the parabola. We need to
convert this into vertex form of equation. The equation must be in the form:
y – k = a (x – h)^2
Where h and k are the vertex of the parabola. Therefore,
y = – 5 x^2 + 240 x – 2475
y = -5 (x^2 – 48 x + 495)
Completing the square:
y = -5 (x^2 – 48 x + 495 + _) – (-5)* _
Where the value in the blank _ is = -b/2
Since b = -48 therefore,
y = -5 (x^2 – 48 x + 495 + 81) + 405
y – 405 = -5 (x^2 – 48 x + 576)
y – 405 = -5 (x – 24)^2
Therefore the vertex is at points (24, 405).
The company should make 24 tables per day to attain maximum
Private Mortgage Insurance (PMI) is an added insurance
policy that protects the lender if you are unable to pay your mortgage.
As a borrower, Lonette and Al should put down at least 20% so that they can
avoid paying PMI. Therefore,
Minimum down payment = 0.20 * $36,750
Minimum down payment = $7,350
They should pay $7,350 to avoid paying PMI.

The functional unit of the nervous system is the nerve cell or the neuron. The neuron consists of a cell body and the axon. The cell body starts with the dendrites that receive the messages or the impulses from other neurons or from different sense organs or receptors. These impulses are then transmitted through the cell body. The cell body contains a nucleus and different organelles which help the nerve cell to perform its functions. The nerve impulse is then transmitted to the axon.
The axon is an extension from the cell body. There are some cells called Schwan cells that secrete a myelin sheath to insulate the axon from the surrounding medium. The insulated axons have more ability to conduct the impulses than non-insulated axons. The axon ends with the terminal arborizations. The terminal arborizations of a nerve cell connect to the dendrites of the next cell or to the afferent organ. The gaps between the dendrites and the terminal arborizations are called the synapses.
The nerve impulse is an electrochemical phenomenon i.e. an electrical phenomenon with a chemical nature. The membrane of the axon acts as a barrier between an outside positively charged medium and an inside negatively charged medium. This makes a potential difference of -70mV. This state is called the resting potential. When the membrane is subjected to a stimulus, the positive charges enter to inside and the negative charges exit to the outside. The potential difference now becomes +40mV. This state is called the depolarization state. The point of stimulation acts as a new stimulus for the next point and so on. The membrane sooner gains its permeability again and the positive charges return to the outside and the negative charges to inside. This state is called repolarization.
The nerve impulse reaches the synapse. There are some neurotransmitters that are excited by the nerve impulse coming and carry the message across the membrane. Some receptors receive theses neurotransmitters on the dendrites of the next neuron. These receptors act as a stimulus for the new cell.
What is the general sequence of the parts of a short story? A. exposition, falling action, climax, rising action, and denouement B. rising action, climax, falling action, exposition, and denouement C. exposition, rising action, climax, falling action, and denouement D. rising action, falling action, climax, exposition, and denouement

Economic profit is calculated as:
Economic profit = Total Revenues – Total Cost
Total cost both includes explicit and implicit cost. In
this case, the explicit cost is $8,000 while the implicit cost is $64,000.
Explicit cost is a direct payment made to run the business while implicit cost
is the opportunity as accountant that is lost. Therefore,
Economic profit = $150,000 – ($8,000 + $64,000)
Economic profit = $78,000
Since we do not know where the angle of 23 degrees is located, then we can find the remaining side using the Pythagorean theorem. This can be done because we know that we have a triangle with a right angle.
We have then:
From here, we clear the value of x.
We have then:
Then, the area of the triangle is given by:
b: base of the triangle
h: height of the triangle
Note: Maybe the height of the triangle is 27.6 instead of 11.8. This will depend on where the angle of 23.8 is located.
But for the moment of looking for the area of the triangle, this is not relevant because the product of the base for the height is the same.
The approximate area of the triangle is:
The right answer is Transgenic organisms can produce a desired product that may benefit other organisms.
A transgenic organism contains DNA combining stably integrated in all its cells. In other words, the organism, be it a plant, an animal or a microorganism, has a new piece of DNA embedded in it. a chromosome in each of its cells. This “new piece” of DNA usually contains a gene from another organism (plant, animal or other) that has been modified to be expressed in the new organization. A transgenic organism may even possess the DNA of another organism of the same species. The inserted gene can be called the transgene.
Currently, diabetics are treated by injecting insulin from either a healthy human donor or cultures of genetically modified (transgenic) bacteria that secrete the protein.
