BIO 102 research paper- Tinea Pedis (Athlete’s Foot)
Tinea is a fungus that grows and multiplies on people’s skin. This is the cause for ringworm and other common fungal infections. Tinea Pedis is a form of ringworm that affects the feet, also called Athlete’s Foot. This fungal infection is the most common form of the ringworm infection and affects many people daily. It is easily spread through any contact with the infection but luckily it can usually be diagnosed rather easily also. This is not a life-threating infection but it does cause much discomfort and displeasure to anyone suffering with it. This infection usually begins in-between toes and is caused by moist feet, usually sweat, inside tight shoes and socks. Athlete’s foot causes itching, stinging, and burning and ways it can be spread include contaminated floors, clothing, or anything that has been exposed to the fungus. This fungal infection is closely related to jock itch and is treated in similar ways.
Athlete’s foot is not only found on “athletes” or even just the foot. This fungus thrives on any damp, warm area which usually is the feet due to shoes being restricting and sweat making them damp. Small cuts or injuries can help the infection begin. This infection can be spread relatively easily compared to some due to how easily it can be caught. Walking barefoot in public showers, or just stepping in or around a public pool is a common way to get the infection. Another way is simply sharing a towel with someone who has the infection.
This fungal infection can spread to other parts of the body from contact with towels or your own hands. Other common areas that Athlete’s Foot is found is under nails due to scratching, hands, and sometimes is mistaken for jock itch. When nails get infected they usually become discolored or begin to crack.
Athlete’s foot does respond well…...

...Introduction Living in a rural location is a quieter area to reside in with fewer options compared to a more congested urban area. When an individual is choosing a location to live in there are many factors to consider. Some of these factors include population, amenities, school, employment, and crime rates. Desirable locations vary based on an individual’s age, ethnicity, and career path. Choosing a place to live is something that should not be taken lightly. Buying a home will lock one into a mortgage and make it more difficult to get out, unlike a lease, when one rents a home there is more flexibility. Shopping Opportunities Typically in an urban location one will have more opportunities to shop and find needed items at any given moment at a more affordable price. In a rural setting, however, there is a smaller population and less of a demand for goods and a person would have a difficult time buying items that they need as well as paying a considerably higher price for the items. Supply and demand play a big role on the price and availability of goods and merchandise. In an urban area there are more stores that carry items so they have to be competitive and offer sales and lower prices so consumers will buy their products. Transportation An individual also needs to consider the travel expense associated with living in a rural area, as......

Living for the City

...Living for the city "Living for the city" is a song written and produced by the multitalented musician Stevie Wonder. The song was released in 1973 and it is about racism and poverty, which many people are still suffering from. The song was and still is appreciated by many people and Wonder wants people to wake up and understand the importance of these issues. The song specifically apprizes a boy growing up in Mississippi. His parents work hard and encourage him to do well in school, despite the living conditions that are surrounding them. His family is poor and they don't have enough money and they have to deal with racism and injustice. But his parents are encouraging him to stay strong and work hard to get out of this dreadful situation. This was a typical living condition in the 1970s and unfortunately a lot of people in today’s society are still living under these circumstances. The song starts off by Wonder describing how the boy's parents work hard; hours on end to get through the hard days but barley make enough money for food. Poverty is a big issue here and it has become a way of life. Many people say that poverty is a natural phenomenon while others argues that people cause poverty. It is hard to tell what actually causes poverty because it depends on where you are born and what the society you belong to is doing to prevent poverty. It is a difference between countries in the west like United Kingdom and USA and countries like India and countries in Africa.......

Some people prefer to live with their family and the others choose to live with their friends. They have to choose the best place to live, comparing advantages and disadvantages this or that living place. By selecting to live at home or with friends, they may encounter many problems such as money, safety and other life situations. The purpose of this essay is to contrast and compare the safety, the money and the independence of living with family and living with friends. Although living with family and living with friends are both very useful and pleasant, the living styles differ significantly. People's feelings and behaviors are changing depending on their living place. (Albert Ellis Institute,2008) First of all, Research by Sailee Kale (2011) showed when you live with your parents there is no need to worry, and you feel weakened. Because parents are obliged to care about their health, physical, mental, spiritual and moral development; to provide them receiving the main general education, and also to protect the rights and interests of the children (DECLARATION OF THE RIGHTS OF THE CHILD, 1959) . As you are their child they are going to do everything for you to lead full-fledged life(, 2011). But when you live with friends the......

Healthy Living

...Healthy living Student’s Name University Affiliation Health would be described in various ways in the current world. Different sections of the society may define health in different aspects; some are of the thought that healthy living is basically the absence of illness or ailment. This group of people therefore has come up with a set way of practice which is referred to as Biomedical model of health. This Model focuses solely on the disease/illness and the individual body functions and the biological processes involved. On the other hand, there is a different section of society that believes that healthy living comprises not only the body but the mind and the environment an individual is exposed to. This is defined as the Biopsychosocial Model of Health. Biomedical Model of Health works with the several assumptions put forward, among this is the argument that the body and the mind are separate entity when it comes to health matters. The hypothesis here is that illness basically is a deviation of the normal biological functions of the body and all other factors play very little role in an individual’s overall health. In this regard, this model assumes health and illness to be looked at separately. In essence this model exudes the notion that both psychological and social factors do not play any role in the effect of one’s health (Santrock, 2007) This type of model has its applications......

Apartment Living vs Living in a House

...Apartment Living Vs. Living in a House At some point in everyone’s life they are faced with the decision of choosing where they want to live. This can be a very difficult decision to make. Depending on the lifestyle you have or are wanting, there are many options. The first thing that you need to decide is what type of housing suits your needs and preferences. In the world we live in today you can choose from the convenience of an apartment or the freedom of a house. There are several advantages and disadvantages to both of them. Let us begin with the size of property you are looking for. Apartments can vary in size, they are built to please families and single people. Efficiency apartments are good for those who are not needing a lot of space. They are typically very compact and fit an entire apartment in just one room. If this is not for you and maybe you have a family, you can get an apartment with up to three bedrooms and two bathrooms. On the other hand, if you would prefer a house, they too vary in size. With a house you have more options on the amount of bedrooms you can choose from. There are houses available from only one bedroom and up to as many as you need. The size of the rooms are also a factor that you need to consider. The two main differences between the size of an apartment and the size of a house, are the sizes of the kitchen and the bathrooms. These rooms are much smaller in most apartments than they are in a house. All though they are still just as...

...Living Future Final Essay Assignment Thao Nguyen Waking up to Frank’s disturbances and being lead on out of his bedroom, Donnie has a purpose to serve in the tangent universe, which he has no idea of. The happenings in the movie Donnie Darko built up a purpose for him as well as an understanding as to why he was in the tangent universe in the first place. However, the realization that he was not in the primary universe, Donnie does not have a clear purpose to serve in the tangent universe and various elements of his journey seem unclear. For example, in the tangent universe, Donnie does not seem to have met Gretchen and neither does he connect well with Frank. However, following the fact that Gretchen and Frank have a purpose to accomplish in the favor of saving the universe before it collapses into a black hole, Donnie realizes that there is instability in the tangent universe and it is his responsibility as the chosen one to hand over the jet engine artifact back to the primary universe before things escalate out of proportion. Bundled with supernatural powers such as gaining some sort of powers, such as the capabilities to conjure fire, water, and telekinesis, Donnie, firstly did not have an idea as to what these powers entailed and why he had to have them. However with provocation from other characters in the tangent universe, Donnie is able to understand that time is not in his or the primary universe’s side. The artifact, jet engine, was in......

Living at Home vs Living on Campus

...every student has the option of whether living at home or living on campus. Each decision comes with benefits worthy of consideration. The choice to live at home or on campus is not a easy one, and depending on which one you chose it can make a huge impact on your college or university experience. I believe that the although living on residence gives you more independence and a easier commute to school the cost of it is what out weights both of those options. Living on your own comes with responsibility and lots of independence. When living on campus you are required to clean and cook for yourself where if living at home theirs always someone to help you clean or cook or perhaps do it all for you. However with independence comes freedom, many chose to live on residence to receive the experience that comes with it which includes meeting new people and many parties. Depending on where you live commuting to school may also be a issue if living at home. However living on campus you are guaranteed a close commute to school which also saves you time. Having to commute can be tiring and hard especially if you have an 8 am class. Living in residence allows you to simply walk to your classes and not have to worry much about schedule buses or parking. Living at home is a huge money saver. For many money is the reason they can not attend college and for others money is the reason students can not live in residence. Living on residence is up to ten thousand......

Art of Living

...**WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF LIVING ETHICALLY? Ethical people are basically people who can recognize the difference between right and wrong. To me, being ethical can translate into being decisive. When you are decisive you do not waste time being in conflict, you have direction and purpose. A decisive person knows what he/she wants and fulfills it. An ethical person has a set of core values as his/her foundation and uses this to navigate life; having this sense means that you do not have to waste time being "wishy-washy" in things. So a major benefit in an ethical life is that you have a stable life and you are not in conflict with yourself. Ethical living is the philosophy of making decisions for daily life which take into account ethics and moral values, particularly with regard to consumerism, sustainability, environmentalism, wildlife and animal welfare. At present it is largely a personal choice, and not an organized social movement. Ethical living is an offshoot of sustainable living, in which the individual initially takes a series of small lifestyle changes in order to limit their effect on the environment. Making the decision to start to live ethically, can be as easy as beginning to recycle, switching off electric lights when leaving a room, buying local organic or fair-trade produce. Though many people often go further by re-using/re-cycling waste water, using renewable resources in their homes (solar panels or atmospheric water generators), giving up...

Country Living vs City Living

...LIVING IS BETTER IN THE COUNTRY HOOK: Do people typically prefer to live in the country rather than in the city? William Penn once said, “The country life is to be preferred; for there we see the works of God; but in cities, we see little else but the works of men.” INTRODUCE THE ISSUE: Even after considering all of the negative aspects of living in the city, such as the crime rate, pollution, traffic, and the noise level, city life still offers a lot of daily conveniences. Some conveniences that city life offers are public transportation, a variety of stores, and restaurants, and lots of places to live and work. However; people who have lived in both the city and the country, know that country living is better than city living. STATE POSITION CLEARLY: The environment of a rural life style, the peace, and quiet, the beauty of nature, and the calming effect that it has on one’s mind and body, is the reason that people prefer living in the country rather than in the city. TRANSITION TO ESSAY BODY (THESIS): People prefer to live in the country because there are many advantages, and simple pleasures that can only be attained by living there. PRO REASON 1: There are no traffic jams in the country, and people need not travel to experience the wonders that nature has to offer. SUPPORTING EVIDENCE: There is no traffic in the country, so typically, the sound of passing cars, and trucks is not heard as frequent as in the city. The load noise of the sirens from fire trucks,...

City Living

...With the rapid development of the modern society, it is generally believed that living in the city is more convenient, which allows citizens to achieve high quality of life. However, what this point fails to take into consideration is that urban life may also cause various problems including the negative impact of air pollution, and the high cost of housing. It is clear that city living makes residents more stressed. This essay will discuss this argument by demonstrating the detrimental effects of city living. To begin with, the air quality in the city is worse than the rural area because of the development of industries, especially the automobile factories. Granted, travelling to various destinations is much easier with the diversity of transport methods. However, the heavy reliance on such transport tools like private cars could lead to severe air pollution that is harmful to the general public. Besides, vehicles exhaust may contain toxic substances, which results in serious diseases like asthma and lung cancer. Therefore, dwellers living in the city should pay more attention to their physical health compared with people living in the country. Furthermore, citizens tend to have more mental problems if they live in the city. Although many well-paid jobs exist in metropolitan areas, the competition is much fiercer among job seekers. Therefore, the difficulty of hunting for appropriate jobs may contribute to the psychological burden of people who lack abundant working......

Living Wills

...Charlotte Cox Dr. M Butkus Philosophy 251-W1 13 July 2013 Where the Decision Lies Living wills are documents that define a patient’s medical wishes usually pertaining to life-support or any such instances where death is presumable. A living will provides a patient with a voice under circumstances which would leave them without the ability to make health decisions. Patients who fall into a persistently vegetative state would be at the mercy of their physician, next of kin, or living will. However, there are many times when a patient’s family has contradicting beliefs to what the patient proclaims in their living will. It can be difficult to decide whose decision should prevail. Ultimately, the previsions made by the patient in their living will should overrule in a majority of situations. Still, there are circumstances when such a decision may be unclear. First, we must understand the medical extent of someone who is in a persistently vegetative state. PVS is a disorder of consciousness and the patient is not in a state of trust awareness. PVS occurs when a patient loses cognitive function and can only perform certain involuntary actions. Such actions include but are not limited to crying, laughing, or movement of the eyes. For them, any movement or response is purely spontaneous, unpredictable and unconnected to events outside of physical impulse. After one year, it's highly unlikely that patients will emerge from their persistent vegetative state. For those who do,......

...I truly believe we are living in interruption world, whether we are working, studying, learning, teaching, or praying there seems to be some kind of interruptions to come our way. A lot of us deal with interruptions in the mind as well, for instance, have you ever been reading and your mind just wonders off, or you could be praying for someone on the phone and all of a sudden your phone starts to beep, the battery is dying, or you receive another call. Here’s a good one, you are studying, then all of sudden you pick up your IPhone and begin to search Facebook; these are all common interruptions. Why is this happening to me all of the time? I was just like the teacher- it made me so mad. I got to the point where I started believing it was the devil, of course it wasn’t. Interruptions are just what they are interruptions, once I got older and wiser I knew that there would always be interruptions, so I needed a solution to the one’s in my life just like the teacher did. My solution was just being on the lookout for them, and praying about the other ones I couldn’t see coming. I believe God allows some interruptions to come our away so we can remain imperfect, knowing that we will always need him. I read this one day; “Interruptions don't have to be viewed as thieves who "take away," but as divinely ordered construction zones which God can add to our lives”(Rainey)....
