Enzyme Rubisco and Cellular Transport
A 4 page discussion of the function of the enzyme rubisco in regard to its importance in plant photosynthesis. The author describes the enzyme, detailing a molecular composition which enables it to interact with and be impacted by environmental constituents such as heat, carbon dioxide, and inactive rubisco. This same molecular composition plays an important role in the binding process which allows the enzyme to be transported throughout plant tissue. Bibliography lists 4 sources.

The number one strategy is ocean fertilization, after this is discussed a further nine strategies including the development of whether control systems, proliferating drought resistant crops, the use of carbon sequestration strategies, roof gardens, sequencing gene gnomes and building flood resistant homes are all discussed. The bibliography cites 4 sources.

The paper assessing the problem of climate change and outlines some of the potential causes and then looks at a range of ways technology, including biotechnology, can help alleviate some of the issues associated with climate change. The technologies considered include forms of carbon sequestration including ocean iron fertilization and alternatives fuel sources, including ethanol and solar energy. The bibliography cites 15 sources.
Summary and Critique of 'Organizing And Activating Effects Of Sex Hormones In Homosexual Transsexuals'
2 pages in length. Understanding the propensity towards transsexuality has perplexed the medical community for decades. Not only is this particular population subcategorized by many different variables, but any definitive findings about why this behavior exists has eluded psychological and physiological research time and time again. Authors van Goozen et al (2002) attempt to piece together a logical progression of events that may occur while the fetus is still within the embryo as a means by which to correlate reasons behind homosexual transsexualism through hormone treatment. No bibliography.
Comparing Achilles and Odysseus
In 5 pages the author compares the heroes in the 'Odyssey' and the 'Iliad.' Homer's 'Iliad' and his 'Odyssey' are both epic Greek poems. The hero in Homer's 'Odyssey' was Odysseus, and the hero in Homer's 'Iliad' was Achilles. Both poems were written by Homer, and many similarities as well as differences are seen between the two heroes. Although similar, those men were not carbon copies of each other, for they did have different characters. They were heroes first and foremost.
