It sounds like science fiction, like something a mad scientist developed in a lab in hopes of taking over the world. In reality is an ancient disease of live stock and humans known since Biblical times. It just never made so many headlines before. Anthrax is an infectious disease known as Bacillus Anthracis.

In his poem, "To Sleep," Wordsworth talks about how he can't seem to fall asleep. He never tells us why, but maybe it's because he doesn't know.

There were several things I noticed in the video Dadi's Family that related well to the readings that we have been using in class. I will proceed to show three of these relations that were the most intriguing to me. In Robbie E. Davis-Floyd's article entitled "Gender and Ritual- Giving Birth the American Way," o

The first digestive organ that food passes through in your body is the mouth. In this phase the body physically breaks down the fluid into small particles. Sharp, flat front teeth cut int

Every living human cell needs oxygen and nutrients to survive.

Living organisms get nutrients from the foods they eat. It's important for any organism to get nutrients so they have energy to use. The Digestive System is a system that prepares food particles for their entry into the bloodstream. Digestion involves break
