A Review: Genetics as a Predictor for Success for Elite Athletes Performing in Power vs. Endurance Sports

...A Review: Genetics as a Predictor for Success for Elite Athletes Performing in Power vs. Endurance Sports Common wisdom tells us that a sprinter is highly unlikely to excel in a marathon, and vice versa. It is easy to conceive that genetic variation is a major source of such differences in athletic ability. Actually identifying these genetic causes requires classification of athletic traits and in depth data analysis. Every year the number of polymorphisms that are candidates to clarify individual variations in sports performance increases. The growth of complexity and disproportion between studies parallels with advances in sports genetics. Additionally, there are numerous factors that play a part in these studies of elite athletes. These factors include gender, size of population, ethnic origin or level of competition of candidates, and the statistical approaches all make correlations between studies difficult. Recent studies support the possibility of developing polygenic profiles that could be used as a method to determine an athlete’s genetic predisposition to certain sports and events. A recent study conducted by Buxens et al., investigated the correlation between genetic polymorphisms and world-class endurance vs power athletes. Their research was published in an academic journal and was titled; “Can we predict top-level sports performance in power vs endurance events? A genetic approach”. The goal of their study was to discriminate potential genetic......

Was the Reichstag Fire More Important Than the Enabling Act in Allowing Hitler to Increase His Power?

...Was the Reichstag Fire more important than the Enabling Act in allowing Hitler to increase his power? Explain your answer. [10] The Reichstag Fire happened on 27th February, 1933. Inside the burning building was found a Dutch communist called Marinus van der Lubbe. He was accused for starting the fire in the Reichstag and was arrested, and after an unfair trial, he was executed. Hitler immediately blamed communists for this. He went to Hindenburg and persuaded him to pass a law called the “Emergency Decree”. This meant that the government were very powerful and that power was wide-ranged. It also took away civil rights and freedom, giving the police a lot of control. But the reason Hitler managed to convince Hindenburg to do this was because he said that this could be the start of a communist revolution which no one wanted. When the next elections took place, in March 1933, over 4 000 communists were arrested by the SA. They also shut down the communist newspaper, broke up any communists meetings and this could all happen because the Emergency Decree was around. Hitler had a lot of control at this point. He had power all over, especially in the police force. If there was someone he didn’t like then he could have them killed. He could do nearly anything he wanted and Hindenburg agreed as he didn’t want a communist attack either. The Enabling law was a part of the Weimar constitution that stated, if two thirds of the Reichstag agreed, that......

Power of Success

...Power of Success The unflinching conflict of obtaining success is eloquently portrayed throughout Arthur Millers “Death of a Salesman”. In this modern tragedy, Miller successfully depicts the human condition in midst of denying failure. The play unfolds around a washed- up salesman named Willy Loman, whose obsession with reaching concrete evidence of success, creates unfortunate repercussions on his family, and himself. Willys conviction that a man must not only be like, but he must be well liked (Miller, 1250), along with his uninterrupted focus on prominence, reflects on his two sons, Biff and Happy, as he infuses them with values of social status as well as future success. Willy’s sense of self value depends on the response of others. Such gestures of recognition provide signals that society is a comfortable home for him, one where he hopes to make his sons as happily at ease as he (Jacobson, 249). This is doubtlessly a mirage of security for Willy, as he desperately suppresses his inner motions of regret, and refuses to embrace his conscious identity. Ultimately, Willy Lomans self- delusion of success disabled him to obtain his true identity, and influence a displacement of identity in his sons. Most people in today’s society develop a constant necessity to better their lives, as well the quality of life for their family. For many, this necessity stems from their core beliefs of what a comfortable life should contain in our society, along with secure elements for......

Hitler has always been known for being an aggressive person and would have done mostly anything to be able to gain more power over German. Hitler used his violent ways to be able to intimidate people voting so they would vote for the Nazi Party.

Susan B Anthony

...Susan B. Anthony The Quaker influence--Hers was a Quaker family. The Quakers believed in education and Susan received excellent training. They believed in hard work, and Susan learned a strong work ethic from an early age. They believed in generosity and charity. They believed in peace, temperance and justice, and this was to affect her adult concerns about injustices toward women, as well as social problems that come from alcohol. The Quakers also believed that men and women were equal partners before God, and this must have had an important influence on her belief in women's rights. The family influence--Susan B. Anthony was raised with Quaker discipline and austerity, but there was an independent spirit that came from both her father and mother. Her father, Daniel, was devout, but he went outside the church to marry the woman he loved. Her mother, Lucy, had loved music and dancing as a girl, but she gave this up to accept the rules of her husband’s Quaker faith. In her spirit, however, her mother never forgot her light-hearted youth. Daniel Anthony was concerned about social justice. When he ran his own cotton mill, he avoided buying slave-raised cotton. This lesson was not lost on Susan. The move to New York--In Massachusetts, her father's cotton mill was very successful, and he was soon asked to manage mills at Batten Ville, New York. The family moved there in 1826 when Susan was 6 years old. Soon the family was in a large brick home. Education--Susan's......

Susan and the System

...Susan and the System 1. I think that Susan’s health insurance wasn’t the best. She didn’t cover most of the care. When she started to use new medication, she didn’t even contact them, because she knew that it will be worthless, they wouldn’t cover. However, I think that she should try to contact them and check the insurance on what it is good. Because she had limited insurance she was covering medical bills out of pocket and soon become bankrupt. 2. Medicaid didn’t give Susan all of the coverage she needed, almost nothing, especially in her health condition, when the treatment was expensive. They said that they do not cover new promising treatment. They only cover for established or proven treatment. Also, when she wasn’t able to cover out of the packet she find out about the doctor who takes the Medicaid on the other side of the town. Maybe she should go over there since the beginning, however, nobody told her. 3. When the insurance didn’t want to cover her bills, she paid out of pocket. When she runs out from savings she contacts the Medicaid but they designed for the proof. She had only one option, go to the doctor who was taking a Medicaid, but the only problem was that he was located on the other side of the town, in dangers area. She went anyway. Doctor understood her and she was pleased with that. He helped her get better. Susan stands up on her feet in the meaning that she improved her health, and she was able to find a job. However, she couldn’t work full time...

...Leaving Medication Unsecured Susan Money HLT 317V 12/13/2014 Ms. Lemke Introduction Unsecured medication is harmful to human life but can be extremely dangerous especially to innocent children. The fatalities or health complications attached to unsecured medication cannot be overlooked and there is a growing need to prevent medication errors like leaving medicine unsecured (Malloch & Porter, 2009). Leaving medication unsecured mostly happens accidentally and has dire consequences. As a result, this research will focus on the imperative need for parents with toddlers to store medications and poisonous products safely. The challenge of leaving unsecured drugs at home is larger than car crashes today. More than 2100 kids engage in behavior such as accidental abuse of unsecured medication for the first time (Betar, 2012). Accidental use of drugs and wrong medication by toddlers is a result of unsecured drugs lying somewhere in the house. Literature review Unintentional poisonings at home are a major cause of fatal or nonfatal injuries in children aged 0-24months. Reports from studies carried out in 2003 showed that 49.6% of all poisonings exposure reported in the USA occurred amongst school going children. 3 out of 1000annual poisoning incidents in Dutch children aged between one and two was as a result of leaving medication unsecured at home. This number was much higher as compared to children from other age groups. In the study, it has come...

...Before seeing Susan, I would look over any information she may have given me over the phone. It might be this paragraph little paragraph that came with the assignment, or it might be something a little more vague. I will remember to think about how both Susan and Thomas are dealing with something, so I need to think about both of them just as equally. I would invite Susan to my office and listen to her problems. I would ask her to tell me what Thomas has been doing and how long it has been going on. I would want to know how she is attempting to deal with him at the moment and also how she is taking care of herself. I would ask Susan the real reason why her husband left so long ago since it seems like her son may not know the real reason. I would let her know that it’s normal for adolescent kids to act out like this and that she shouldn't be too hard on herself. I would talk to Susan about what she can try next with Thomas. We know that he sometimes refuses school, refuses to do his homework, and is getting sent to the principal’s office. He is also mad at his mom for “scaring” his dad away. Since Thomas is twelve years old now, he might be old enough to know why his dad really left. If he isn’t a drug addict or in prison, then Susan might be willing to try to get ahold of him. I don’t want to push that on her, but I would ask if she has considered letting Thomas see his father, or if the father has ever tried to contact them. If Thomas seeing his father is out of the question...

Immigration Reform Susan Parker

...Senator Susan Parker on Immigration Reform Immigration into this country, regardless of whether it is legal or illegal, has comprehensive plans that have been around for quite some time. I would like to first state that living in Texas I know first hand the effects of both types immigration very well. Legal immigrants from other parts of this country as well as from other countries around the world have moved here to Texas, and are a major part of what makes such a diverse and prosperous state. Legal immigration has been and will continue to be vital to the success of our state, as well as the rest of the country as a whole. This form of immigration is welcomed, and should be the way all immigrants enter this country. The negative effects of illegal immigration, especially in my home state of Texas along with other border states are becoming overwhelming. Crime rates and undocumented workers along the border are on the rise in direct association to illegal immigrants. The illegal crossing of our national border is not only a threat to our security, but also our economic future. The recent comprehensive immigration reform presented by my fellow senators has many good points and is a step in the right direction. Before I do address its strengths and weaknesses, I would like to point out that similar to any plan dealing with any issue there is no “permanent” solution “that will not need to be revisited” as stated in the opening paragraph. Plans that are successful (such as......

Pam and Susan

...Pam and Susan’s: Locating New Stores Situation Pam and Susan’s is a chain of discount department stores.* The original store was opened in the South in the mid-1950s by Pam and Susan’s father. About 10 years ago, Pam and Susan took over operational control of the stores, working together under a joint power sharing arrangement. The unusual management arrangement and consensus decision making by the two women, for which they have received a great deal of publicity, have contributed in part to sales growth and to the recent upsurge in new store openings. Fundamentally, however, their success is based on an uncanny ability to appropriately stock stores and underprice competitors. State-of-the-art business processes are at the core of their low price structure. There are currently 250 Pam and Susan’s stores, mostly located throughout the South. Expansion has been incremental, growing from its Southern base into the Border States and increasingly into the Southwest. Identification of the most appropriate sites for new stores is becoming an issue of increasing strategic importance. Store location decisions are based upon estimates of sales potential. The traditional process leading to estimates of sales potential starts with demographic analyses, site visits, and studies by the company’s real estate experts (augmented by input from local experts). The demographic data judged relevant for a given store location is that for people within a store’s estimated “trading......

Susan Smith

...Fernando Burga Criminology Doctor Watts September 18, 2015 It’s crazy to think that such a violent and horrible crime could occur in a small town such as Union, South Carolina. In matter of hours, the world was informed of Susan Smith’s tragic loss of her two beautiful boys. On October 25, 1994, Susan Smith reported to police that she was carjacked by a black man who drove off with both of her sons still in the back seat. For nine days, Susan stuck by her story and also made several TV appearances pleading for the rescue and return of her sons. Throughout those nine days, police started to question Smith’s story and started to see several flaws in it. She quickly became the main suspect. After a few days Susan Smith confessed to the hideous crime that committed, leaving the nation shocked and in disgust. One can only imagine what could have caused a mother to purposefully murder her two baby boys. How could you possibly sit there and watch your children drown. What was her motive, why did she do this? To me, the motive is clear, Susan Smith’s boyfriend, who is fairly wealthy, did not want children at all. They broke up a couple of days before the incident occurred. She told one of her friends “she wondered how life would be like without her kids”. This is a quick trigger that Smith only thought about herself. Few said she was suicidal during this time, and in one of her statements she said she wanted to roll down the hill with her children but decided to get out. I......

Susan Griffin

...Life in the Web: An Exploration of Susan Griffin’s “Our Secret” There is a web that every person in the world is a part of. This web connects us to every person that has had an influence on us. The people we see every day, our family and friends, are the ones directly connected to us. We meet someone new, another new connection in the web. We are even connected to people we have never met. Friends of friends, and people who we may never meet but have some indirect effect on us, form the outer circle of the web. We are all connected in some way to every other person. Susan Griffin explores this theory of a complex matrix of connections in her essay “Our Secret”. She employs a style of writing that uses several different threads of stories from her own experiences and the life of Heinrich Himmler, Chief of the Nazi SS, as well as references to seemingly unrelated topics such as missile production and cells to weave the fabric of her theory of universal interconnectedness. At first glance, each passage seems unrelated to the next, but after thorough reading a juxtaposition of the threads is evident. Through her entire essay, Griffin uses underlying themes that connect each thread and anecdote to one another. One of the main themes that is interwoven through her essay is child rearing and the effect that different styles of parenting have on the child later in life. One relationship between father and son she explores is Heinrich Himmler and his father Gebhard. Gebhard was...

Developing a Motivational Plan for Susan Smith

...Developing a Motivational Plan for Susan Smith In the workforce regardless of the industry, motivation is the key factor of performance that leads to accomplishments. Motivation is needed in every single part of our lives, from getting up in the morning to making your dinner after work. The most important factor that drives us in our society and our world is motivation, is what has lead us to the moon, fly, drive vehicles, cross over continents to discover other civilizations, and continue to innovate technology that is driving us to a more futuristic society.
