First Day by Anonymous on March 29th, 2011, 3:02 pm
I am new to this website and am extremely glad i found it! I was actually going to create one if i couldnt find a website like this. Even though this website is full of experts and i have absolutely no credibility that is alright with me. I just like to discuss and further my knowledge in my area of interest. I m just looking to solving the only answer i want solved. "How can I become happy?". So far no matter what i tell myself, or what people tell me, I always revert back to, "What is the point?" "Whats my purpose?" "Do i need to accomplish something to be happy or can i find it in something small?" Im afraid that these answers can probably never be answered logicaly or with philosophy or any other method but i have decided that in my personal life ill just take an ignorant route in my daily living and just look for the truth on this website and elsewhere. Im kind of a hyprocrite, now that i think about it. I follow two different theories to live...

Designer Babies by Anonymous on April 22nd, 2014, 11:13 am
Scientific Question:
Could PGD be used to choose the sex of a baby?

A designer baby is a baby whose genetic makeup has been selected in order to eradicate a particular defect, or to ensure that a particular gene is present. In a way parents have the chance to play God by choosing what characteristics they want in their child. With the way the world is and technology advancing so much we will soon be able to choose they eye or hair color. PGD can be used to look at the sex of an embryo. The first PGD treatment was used to treat a sex-linked disease, Duchenne muscular dystrophy. Only male babies can inherit this disease, so PGD was used to select female embryos which will not have the disease. Michael Sandel’s article, Designer Babies: The Problem with Genetic Engineering explains the growing debate on genetic engineering and if there should be limits to it what changes a parent can and can’t make to their child. Humans are born with a competitive nature to be able to do better tha...

A drink & liquid that has no water. by Anonymous on July 16th, 2012, 9:54 pm
During the years of 2004/05 I studied a lot of chemistry based units. There was one class in particular that shed an enlightening concept of which I have not quite forgotten yet despite losing my varied chemistry books since then. The lecturer, a reputed individual, showed a demonstration in which a non-water liquid was placed in a jar/container and into this container a block of wood was placed. Within no time the cellulose (what wood is comprised) was quite simply completely dissolved without losing its molecular structure. That is, the lecturer just showed that turning wood into a liquid was possible! Apparently there are many industrial applications to this, and there is a long list of established different solvents (non-water based) that will dissolve an array of different non-water molecular structures. Ahem, now, this was a long time ago so I cannot remember the names of the solvents without my notes with ease. I believe that one of them was ‘toluene-ethylene-glycol’, and...
