Abstract: Quantitative measurements can relate both temperature and substrate concentration to the enzymatic activity of trypsin. By analyzing the data, it is suggested that at BAPNA concentrations below those corresponding to Vmax are rate limiting, as less active sights are available for adhesion. The values of Vmax and Km relate a temperate catalytic efficiency of trypsin

In other words, “Practice makes perfect.” The feeling that you get from having fun is great, but it is important to work hard to achieve this “fun” thing. The feeling of having fun is irrelevant if hard work was not involved in achieving it. An example to illustrate this po

Most believe that true knowledge is acquired empirically, and not latent in our minds from birth. In Plato’s Meno, Socrates argues in favour of the pre-natal existence of knowledge, the opposite of this proposal: that knowledge is essentially latent, and is brought to light through questioning.

Sylvia Plath Chishiki1 Sylvia Plath was a remarkable twentieth century American poet. Her poetry focused on depression, aspects on suicide and death, savage imagery, self-destruction and painful feelings of women. Plath’s attempts to exorcise the oppressive male figures that haunted her life served as one of the fundamental themes in her poetry. Her poetry is a good example on how “suffering and transformation could be within traditional poetic contexts” (Initiation p.142). She also believed tha

The source of aggression within humans is a long summative list, but before trying to understand its source one must apply a working definition of aggression.
