A Philosophy on Fitness Webster’s Dictionary defines physical as “concerned or preoccupied with the body and its’ needs” and defines activity as “the state or quality of producing or involving movement.” I agree with Mr. Webster’s definitions. I see physical activity as doing some kind of movement in order to assist in improving or maintaining a body’s level of health. By maintaining or improving that level of health, physical activity also plays a big role in a person’s “quality of life”. How

Genetics Science is a creature that continues to evolve at a much higher rate than the beings that gave it birth. The transformation time from tree-shrew, to ape, to human far exceeds the time from an analytical engine, to a calculator, to a computer. However, science, in the past, has always remained distant. It has allowed for advances in production, transportation, and even entertainment, but never in history has science be able to as deeply affect our lives as genetic engineering will undou

MATH IN NATURE Mrs. Olivieri Robert Bruno Me21 due 12-22-99 MATH Math is one of the basic sciences of life; it can be said that is the most basic science, the first thing a person learns, apart from reading and writing, is how to add and subtract. But, is math a part of nature, or was it made to measure or understand nature? It is really hard to know, but in my point of view, math is a method created by men to measure nature. If math was a part of nature, man would be born with math knowledge,
