I love sweets:) aka why i put that picture up there!

My favorite thing in Bio so far was the diffusion lab! Our cell, "nequisha" was too big so it took 35 min.
to diffuse completely!We used a substance that was similar to jello, and we used vinegar to diffuse into the jellolike
substance. here is a video of what was happening in this experiment:


- Little pockets in the cytoplasm of cells, where the cell stores food
-It is made up of water and amino acids and a lipid membrane
From book:-they store undigested nutrients
-contractile vacuoles pump out excess water
-it stores chemicals like salt-it causes cell growth by absorbing water causing the cell to expand -central vacuoles in plants can contain colors
that attract insects that pollinate
-in leaf cells they can contain poisons for protection

High School Knee Injury

A study at Center for Injury Research and Policy (CIRP) shows that knee injuries are the most costly and are the
leading injury to high school athletic surgeries.
This injury is the second most common injury in high school sports.
"Knee injuries in high school athletes are a significant area for concern," said Dawn Comstock, PhD, CIRP principal investigator, faculty member at The Ohio State University College of Medicine and one of the study authors. "Knee injuries accounted for nearly 45 percent of all sports injury-related surgeries in our study. Knee surgeries are often costly procedures that can require extensive and expensive post-surgery rehabilitation and can increase risk forearly onset osteoarthritis. Without effective interventions, the burden of knee surgeries and rehabilitation will continue to escalate as the number of high school athletes continues to grow."
Boy's wrestling and football, along with girls soccer and basketball had the highest number or knee injury's such as complete ligament tears, ligament tears, torn cartilage, contusions, and etc.Boys have a more frequent patter of getting
knee injuries over girls, but girls have more intense injuries. Girls miss a longer period of practice time than boys, and are more likely to require surgery. "Parents of young female athletes should not overreact to these findings however,"warned Comstock. "The long term negative health effects of a sedentary lifestyle far outweigh those of the vast majority of sports injuries."
You can see that the evidence above shows that guys get knee injuries than girls, but the girls knee injuries are moresevere. It will not have a huge affect on most people when they are older, in fact playing sports in high school will help you out later in life.
What are some other areas of common sports injury? How can you protect yourself from Knee injury?
Why do you think knee injury is more common in Males than in females?
