The Common Cold

The common cold has been plaguing humankind
since the beginning of human existence. Even in
these advanced times, there is no vaccine or cure.
There are many symptoms that accompany the
common cold. Some of these infamous symptoms
are a runny nose, caused by inflammation of the
nasal tissues, resulting in over production of mucus
to trap the virus, and coughing. there are two
different kinds or types of coughs that are
common with colds. The first, is the less common
dry hacking cough, these kinds are more likely to
keep you up at night and just plainly annoy you
than do any thing else. The other more common
type of cough is the kind whose purpose is to
expel mucus and or phlegm. These help to combat
the cold by helping to expel the mucus that has the
virus trapped in it. Other symptoms include a slight
tingle or tickle in the back of the throat that usually
turns into a sore throat and sneezing. Both of these
symptoms are was for your body to help expel
phlegm or mucus from the body. Another
symptom is swelling of the face and or neck
usually accompanied by pain around the eyes,
nose, and forehead. This pain and swelling is
caused by the introduction of the virus into your
upper respiratory tract, therefore causing mucus
building up in your nasal passages and then in your
sinuses causing them both to become impacted.
Many people complain of hoarseness, aches and
pains in their joints, fever of about 101 degrees,
and general aches and pains all over their bodies
(Anthanasoid ). There are at least two hundred
different kinds of viruses that are known to cause
what is known as the common cold, and an
unknown number of undiscovered causes (Nourse
56). The virus who is usually responsible for a
cold is called a rhinovirus, and it accounts for
around thirty to fifty percent of all colds that afflict
the adult part of the human population. The virus
that is secondly responsible for most common
colds, is called a coronavirus, and it is only
different form a rhinovirus by a margin of few
select proteins in it's molecular structure. The
rhinovirus is so small that it can only be measured
in milimicrons, one milimicron is about
1/25,000,000 of an inch, that means that about
five hundred rhioviruses can fit on the point of a
pin. That fact makes the rhinovirus and the
coronavirus categorized in the medium territory.
The virus cannot reproduce by itself. In fact
scientists cannot even decide whether to classify it
as an animal or a plant, because it is so primitive.
To reproduce, the virus must first latch onto a
nearby cell and inject it's genetic makeup into the
cell. It then tells the cell to make as many viruses
as it can, using the chemicals inside of the cell. The
cell keep producing viruses until the outer cell wall
explodes releasing all of the new viruses into the
bloodstream. The best part about many of the
viruses that cause colds is that they are self
limiting. That means that after the virus reproduces
so much it just stops and dies. In the case of
common colds, the virus runs it's course in about
ten to fourteen days. Because it kills itself, the
infected person's immune system doesn't realy
have to do anything except maybe keep it in their
upper respiratory track. There have been
documented cases when a cold actually
inadverten tly killed someone. In these rare cases,
the viral infection lead to a bacterial infection in the
middle ear and therefore lead to death. This is why
if your ears hurt, you should see a doctor
immediately (Knight 10-15, 23-25). There are
many misconceptions about the spread of the
common cold. For one thing, a person who
doesn't cover their mouth when coughing and or
sneezing, is not necessarily spreading their cold
says John Poppy (104). Another article in the
"Mayo Clinic Health Letter" stated that coughing
and sneezing is one of the things that spreads the
cold virus the most. The reasoning behind that is,
the cough or sneeze spreads the viral particles all
around. Then people touch the spot that has one
of these particles on it with their hands and rub
their hands on their nose and mouth. This action
spreads the cold even further. This same article
said that kissing doesn't necessarily spread the
cold virus (1-2). Laurie Tarkan says that the main
way that the cold virus is spread is through
touching of the nose and mouth, like the Mayo
Clinic Letter. She also stated that the reason that
colds seam to flourish in the winter is that people
tend to group together in schools and in homes,
therefor spreading the virus throughout the
population. Also more people tend to fly durring
the winter. In order to keep the cabin pressurized,
the airplane circulates the air, and that means that
if one person has a cold and coughs then the
whole plane will have a great chance to become
infected. Also at higher altitudes, the air seriously
dries out the nasal membrane in the nose and
therefore make a person more susceptible to the
virus. Because of this, experts like Laurie Tarkan
suggest to drink allot of water while flying in an
airplane, about eight ounces for every hour that
you are on the airplane (202, The Common Cold
2). There is only one possible way to stay totally
healthy during the winter. That is to be locked in a
room underground and not see anyone until the

  • A Rose for Emily
    A Rose for Emily The Symbolism and Characterization in "A Rose for Emily" by William Faulkner In the short story "A Rose for Emily" by William Faulkner, the macabre ending is foreshadowed by the story\'s opening with Miss Emily Grierson\'s death and funeral. The bizarre outcome is further emphasized throughout by the symbolism of the decaying house, which parallels Miss Emily\'s physical deterioration and demonstrates her ultimate mental disintegration. Her life, like the house which decays arou

Many critics of the novel in the early days after the publication of the novel blamed Remarque for writing for shock value. They did not want to believe his novel represented the truth about World War I. In many ways, such people were like Paul\'s schoolmaster, Kantorek. They wanted to cling to classical, romantic notions of w

The cofferdam is when the put wooden spikes in to the bottom of the river then used watertight clay over the spikes to make a bridge. Now today there are more efficient ways to make a bridge then just out of cement and clay. There are Suspension Bridges, Arch Bridges, Covered Bridges and many more.

    Amish Culture The past five weeks in my life have really had an impact on me. In such a short period of time, I have become more aware of the different cultures that exist around the world today. We tend to think that our way of life is the only way there is, or at least the only right way. It is really very ignorant to think that everyone believes and behaves the same way. People should stop being so self-centered and take notice and interest in cultural diversity. There are numerous different

The “Boston Massacre” as it was called, was really not a massacre in the sense that a lot of people were slaughtered, it was a massacre in the sense that British government’s authority was not to be tolerated. During the next eighteen months, tensions betwee

    Great Depression3 Greg Squires The Great Depression was the worst economic slump ever in U.S. history, and one which touched virtually all of the industrialized world. The Depression began in late 1929 and lasted for nearly a decade. Many factors played a role in bringing about the Depression; however, the main cause for the Great Depression was the combination of the greatly unequal distribution of wealth throughout the 1920\'s, and the extensive stock market speculation that took place during

The main reason there was such a thing as liberal consensus was because of the extreme economic growth we experienced

His unprecedented election to four terms in office will probably never be repeated; the 22nd Amendment to the Constitution of the United States, passed after his death, denies the right of any person to be elected president more than twice. Roosevelt held office during two of the greatest crises ever faced by the United States: the Great De
  • Slavery as a Cruel Institution
    Slavery as a Cruel Institution Slavery as a Cruel Institution Cruelty can be defined as an inhumane action done to an individual or group of people that causes either physical or mental harm. Slavery, at its very core, was a cruel and inhumane institution. From the idea behind it to the way that it was enforced, it degraded the lives of human beings and forbade the basic liberties that every man deserves under the Constitution of the United States. Three major areas where cruelty was especially

The head of the Republican machine, Thomas Platt, had misgivings about making Roosevelt governor of New York because of Roosevelt\'s total independence and his reform nature. But in the gubernatorial race of 1898, with the bad press the Republican Party was receiving, there seemed to be no one else who

    The Narratives of Frederick Douglass and Harriet A Jacobs Slavery was perhaps one of the most appalling tragedies in the history of The United States of America. To tell the people of the terrible facts, runaway slaves wrote their accounts of slavery down on paper and published it for the nation to read. Frederick Douglass and Harriet Jacobs were just two of the many slaves who did this. Each of the slaves had different experiences with slavery, but they all had one thing in common: they tell of

    Total War World War One “World War I: Total War” Europe since pre-Roman times has been marked by conflict. Warring tribes often did battle in small skirmishes and hand-to-hand combat. But as the civilizations grew and technology improved the battles became larger and much more intense. With the Industrial revolution, warfare would change forever. This can be best seen in World War One. The “war to end all wars” gradually escalated to a global conflict, dragging the super powers into a four year

Obviously most of the chapter is intended to spark pity and a sense of sympathy for the poor, suffering farm animals, but the old Major\'s words are very telling. The "wise" old pig addresses the central conflict of the book, and of Orwell\'s intended meaning-- tyranny. The first (and seemingly only) dictatorship the animals must overcome is the rule of Mr. Jones and the other humans. T

    Zonation on a rocky shore Zonation Coursework Conclusion: The seashore is a habitat that contains a wide range of microhabitats and ecological niches for different creatures. This is mainly due to the effects of the tides, that rise and fall twice each day. Tides are the vertical movement of water in a periodical oscillation of the sea, due to the gravitational pull of the sun and moon. The tides are on a semi-diurnal cycle, so there are two high tides and two low tides each day. Due to the orbi

In Rodin\'s more famous works, one can see the similarities between the two artists\' artwork. Rodin\'s parents were not wealthy, therefore, he was not able to attend an art sch

A simple game of bingo, if analyzed closely, can be shown to be a tedious task consisting of a repetitive action that occurs after being prompted by a repetitive stimulus. The skill level needed to make that action is low, and the variability in the rules of the game rarely changes. This game is not unlike many of the jobs that can be classified as having low motivational potential scores (Hackman, et al). So why
