Life In A Drop Of Water

Can you believe there is hundreds of microscopic life in a drop of water? Even in a drop of water we can see the circle of life, yes, in a drop of water there is an ecosystem as much as there is in our own everyday life. Out of the many organisms that I saw through the microscope, only two organisms caught my attention. Looking at these organisms under the microscope, I elected a plant organism and the other animal organism. We were to observe their behavior with other organisms and with their environment without any outside interaction. I think a majority of the organism will be different sizes, shapes, colors and different ways to transport its self.
The first organism was a plant cell that was first spotted at the magnification 100x and was last observed at the magnification of 400x for better detail. The organism was almost perfect circular shape and filled with eight sizes smaller circular bubble shape inside its body, which were all green in color. The organism had a red circular dot in its bow with in its main body. The organism was very active with in its environment and paid no attention to any other organisms or of its own kind. The organism seemed to bounce around, but the most curious was it seemed to move like mechanical bearings, which I believe, was how the organism moved. I wonder if it used this bearing like movement to propel its self through its environment. Some organisms were the same shape, a slightly bigger but with out movement, which let me believe these organisms were, if not the older but the deceased.
I noticed that there was a lot of activity on the slide. There were many little circle-shaped things that were moving quickly all over the slide. What caught my attention was a small, teardrop-shaped body that reminded me of some type of copepod but much smaller. The organism had a…...

...The five components of physical fitness are: Cardiovascular endurance, muscle endurance, muscle strength, flexibility and body composition. Engaging in a physical fitness program can benefit each of the five health related components of physical fitness because the program provides people with all different activities to satisfy each component. The exercises offered in the program for the cardiovascular endurance helps the body to become more efficient, better cope with physical challenges, and better resists chronic diseases. These exercises are good for the heart by maintaining or increasing the heart’s own blood and oxygen supply, increasing the heart muscle’s function, so it pumps more blood per beat, strengthening the heart’s contraction, increasing the heart’s cavity size, increasing blood volume so the heart pushes more blood into the circulatory system during each contraction, and reducing blood pressure. Also, the exercises given to satisfy the muscle endurance and muscle strength aspect of physical fitness are beneficial because they can improve performance of physical activities, they can prevent injuries, improve body Composition, increase fat-free mass, which raises metabolism, enhance self-image and quality of life, improve muscle and bone health with aging (strength training can prevent muscle and nerve degeneration brought about by aging), and strength training helps prevent and manage both CVD and diabetes. Next, flexibility exercises, which may arguably be......

...Chapter 2 Total health and fitness lifestyle benefits What Is Total Health and Fitness? The term total health (wellness) and fitness may be defined in a variety of ways. The most commonly used definition incorporates 5 areas- the mental, emotional, spiritual, social and physical. Although each area is important to your total health and well being, in this text we will only emphasize the physical characteristics of total health. However, since no single area can stand fully separated from the rest, we will discover how small parts of each area are inevitably intertwined with each other. When defining physical fitness, two terms are commonly used: health related fitness, and athletic performance related fitness (also referred to as motor, or skill fitness). The components of these two types are as follows: Health related fitness • Cardiovascular endurance • Muscular strength • Muscular endurance • Muscle and joint flexibility • Body composition (lean mass vs. fat mass) Athletic Performance Related Fitness (motor or skill fitness) • Cardiovascular endurance • Muscular strength • Muscular endurance • Muscle and joint flexibility • Body composition • Coordination • Speed • Agility • Power • Balance • Reaction time • Neurological efficiency Although the five components of health fitness are included in athletic fitness, the additional......

...Olajumoke Oke-Bell Fitness Walking Tuesday/Thursday 8:00am – 9:05 Three important factors that needs to be considered in order to incorporate exercise into our daily lives. a) First, lack of exercise is harmful to our health. Sadly, many Americans today are leading a sedentary lifestyle because of modern conveniences. This cause many overall health issues. The most serious crisis is the condition of being overweight or obese. According to the report by Lunau, Kate, “Don’t just sit there: It’s tied to obesity, diabetes, even cancer… and daily exercise won’t make up for it. In 2004, 66% of US adults were obese, 16% of American children were overweight, with another 34% at risk of becoming overweight. These statistics, as startling as they are, are expected to rise even more. In fact, US researchers predicted that 75% of Americans will be overweight by the year 2015. What’s more, a sedentary lifestyle, also linked to the development of many illnesses, such as cardiovascular (or heart) disease, strokes, certain forms of cancer, and high blood pressure. These serious health issues can be prevented by adding exercise to our daily lifestyle. b) Next, is the biggest misconception that exercise has to be a chore? People who shy away from exercising say it’s either too difficult or too time consuming. WRONG! Too often, people assume the only ways to exercise are to go to the gym or to go for a run, but in reality the best way to keep you and your family fit is to make exercise......

...A fitness centre is a place where people come to work out. It provides several types of exercise equipment for the purpose of physical exercise. Fitness centers are usually patronized by both sexes. But there are also exclusive centers for either sex. Many fitness centers choose to have a ladies-only workout area. Fitness centers offer a collective and often entertaining and informal form of working out as opposed to a typical gym. For instance they may offer classes in Yoga, Pilates, Tai chi, Dance exercises, etc. Fitness centers usually have a main workout area, which houses equipment like free weights like dumbbells and barbells and exercise machines. This area may have mirrors so that patrons can check and maintain correct posture during their workout. For cardiovascular exercises, there will be a Cardio area. This will have many types of cardiovascular training-related equipment like rowing machines, stationary exercise bikes, elliptical trainers and treadmills. These areas may also include a number of audio- visual displays (either integrated into the equipment, or placed on walls around the area itself) in order to keep exercisers entertained. Newer fitness centers often offer group exercise classes. These are run throughout the week by qualified fitness instructors. There may be classes based on aerobics, cycling (spin cycle), boxing, high intensity, yoga, Pilates and muscle training. Those with swimming pools often offer aqua aerobics classes. Many......

Nutrition and Fitness

...Nutrition and Fitness Veronica L. Powell University of Phoenix SCI/100 Terry Gatchell April 20, 2010 Nutrition and Fitness In July 1996 I was at Fort Jackson, South Carolina entering Basic Training for the United States Army. The training was rigorous to say the least. Every morning we were up at 0500 (military time) to do physical training (PT), which involved running two or three miles, doing sit-ups, push-ups, and side straddle hops (jumping jacks). The Army gave three basic meals a day: breakfast, lunch, dinner. Although we were allowed a variety of meats, starches, and vegetables to choose from, these meals provided the daily nutritional value recommended for the human body and served using the correct portion size. Prior to going to the military I personally had no idea about nutrition and fitness and how it was important to the human body. Upon examining nutrition and fitness, the focus of this paper will be my current fitness and nutritional habits, health risks associated with obesity, identify and describe three new fitness habits, identify and describe three new nutritional habits, find how new habits promote healthy weight, and how new habits benefit my health. Current Nutritional and Fitness Habits During the past couple of years my nutritional and fitness habits have changed dramatically. Before I found that I was pregnant with a set of twins, the focus was to lose weight. The nutritionist had mapped out a 1200......

...[pic] Personal Exercise Program Name: Katayoon Khoshragham Writing a Personal Exercise Program Before we start exercising or trying to improve our level of fitness we must make sure that we are at a reasonable level of fitness to start. If you have not exercised for a while, had children or have suffered from an illness, you must seek medical advice before you start on a fitness/training program. 1. Why must you seek medical advice before you start training/exercising? Because, exercising is a physically intensive activity and you would have high heart beat rates, excessive sweating, tiredness etc. Some people who are weak or having cardiac illness etc may not be able to work out effectively. So consulting a physician helps us avoid unintentional injuries to ourselves because of exercising. _______________________________________________________________________ _______________________________________________________________________ _______________________________________________________________________ To help you plan your exercise program you will have to consider your own Information______________ N(personal profile)_________.

Cardiovascular Endurance

...Cardiovascular endurance refers literally to your hearts strength. You can improve cardiovascular endurance urance by doing 15 minutes of exercise in your target heart weight three times a week. Some of the exercise you can do include jogging, push ups and skipping rope. Muscular strength is the amount of force a muscle can exert in a single contraction. use bench pressing for increasing muscular strength in the chest, triceps and shoulders. you can do shoulder shrugs to increase muscular strength in back, biceps and abs. do squats for increasing muscular strength in your legs. Muscular endurance is the ability of a muscle to do continuous work over a long period of time. good ways to improve muscle endurance are running , playing sports and cycling. Flexibility is the length of an eccentric motion that a muscle can preform. The best way of improving flexibility is by stretching each muscle group before exercising. Body composition is the percentages of fat, bone, water, and muscle in the human body. Some ways of improve body composition are pushing with an upper focus, pushing with the leg press and leg curls. 6 skill related factors of fitness 1. Agility: The ability to rapidly and accurately change the direction of the whole body in space. 2. Balance: The ability to maintain equilibrium while stationary or moving. 3. Coordination: The ability to use the senses and body parts in order to perform motor......

Cardiovascular

...Cardiovascular Your heart which is located slightly left of the center of your chest, is the size of your fist and works as a muscular pump and is also protected by your rib cage. The heart is dived into a right side and left side they are divided and circulate blood and oxygen around your body, helping to prevent oxygen rich blood (red) and oxygen poor blood (blue) from mixing together. Oxygen-poor blood, "blue blood," returns to the heart after circulating through your body. The right side of the heart, composed of the right atrium and ventricle, collects and pumps blood to the lungs through the pulmonary arteries. The lungs refresh the blood with a new supply of oxygen, making it turn red. The organs of the circulatory system the heart, it consists of four hollow chambers – two ventricles and two atria. All four chambers work quite like pumps and push blood throughout your body. The blood that moves towards the heart enters it through the atria and then goes out to your body through the ventricles. Another Organ are the blood vessels which allow blood to flow quickly from one region to another and then allow it to come back to your heart. Your blood vessels have a thin layer of squamous epithelium that prevents clots from forming. The layer is called endothelium and ensures that your blood cells stay inside the vessels all the time. There are three basic types of blood vessels, including capillaries, arteries and veins. Another one is the blood, your heart pumps blood...

...activity, the correct amount of physical activity, the correct type of physical activity, cardiovascular fitness, strength and muscular endurance fitness, and my 3-month fitness program. I have read some useful sources for me to prepare this program. This will help me also in the future. THE BENEFITS OF PHYSICAL ACTIVITY Regular physical activity has lots of benefits to man in general. Regular exercise reduces the risks of many chronic diseases such as cardiovascular and cholesterol problems. It also reduces and maintains weight, beats obesity, and tones muscles, too. Other benefits include helping the person to relax, helping the body to build and maintain healthy bones, and slowing the aging process. All the above-mentioned diseases (also known as hypokinetic diseases) are caused by physical inactivity. A 30-minute daily physical activity lowers the risks of these diseases caused by lack of regular physical activity. It is really important that to differentiate the skill-related physical fitness components from the health–related physical fitness components. PREPARING FOR PHYSICAL ACTIVITY It is recommended that one should prepare for a fitness program by assessing readiness before starting. One can assess his/her readiness to do certain type of physical activity by checking on health risk techniques. The PAR, or physical activity readiness, and the identification of fitness zones, healthy zones or target zones are examples of those health risk......

Biol1000 - the Effects of Extra Weight on Cardiovascular Fitness Using the Step Test

...Laboratory 2 – The Effects of Extra Weight on Cardiovascular Fitness Using The Step Test INTRODUCTION Any form of exercise can be described as aerobic exercise as long as it promotes cardiovascular fitness (Tapley et al. 1995). The heart fuels every muscle with oxygen during these aerobic exercises. This in turn cause the heart to work much harder (Tapley et al. 1995). The heart itself is a muscle however, and this work makes the hear more conditioned and efficient. This means that, the higher the heart rate is, the harder the heart is working to deliver oxygen to all the muscles. To establish the cardio fitness of a subject, the individual’s heart rate can be measure before and after aerobic exercise. The Step Test is a reliable, inexpensive, simple and quick approach of measuring the heart rate of an individual (Mazic et al. 2001). The scientific investigation was done to determine if carrying extra weights will effect the heart rate of an individual. The results of this experiment are relevant since good cardiovascular fitness is an asset to living a good life. The null hypothesis for this experiment expects that the extra weight will have the same affect on an individual’s heart rate. The alternate hypothesis expects the additional mass to increase the individual’s heart rate because the heart must work harder to pump oxygen to all the muscles (Tapley et al. 1995). MATERIALS and METHODS Laboratory partners that were involved in this investigation were......

Cardiovascular Disease

...Cardiovascular Disease Name Institution Date Background Throughout my years of occupation as a dental hygienist, I have come across various dental problems. Children as well as adult are capable of succumbing to the various dental illnesses. Nicholas (2011) attests that there underlies a great relationship amid oral inflammatory issue and cardiovascular processes. In other words, Nicholas’s research aims at showcasing that most oral inflammatory issue are likely to lead to cardiovascular dilemmas. The ultimate implication on this particular study is that regular dental care processes play a pragmatic role in preventing most cardiovascular diseases. The following paper is a comprehensive research in which in which I seek to uncover the history of cardiovascular disease as well as how it affects dental practices. History An American Heart Association commonly abbreviated as (AHA) describes the various heart disease as cardiovascular diseases. Cardiovascular illnesses are a leading cause of death throughout the world. Cardiovascular disease dates from several years back. The period at which the disease is said to have come into existence is commonly known as the ancient Egypt. However, it is worth to note that the vast society has only become enlightened regarding the cause a well as the effects of the cardiovascular illnesses just in the wake of the 20th Century despite the ancient history of the disease. As a health practitioner, the implication underlying this......
