    Relationship and biodiversity Introduction Botana curus is a valuable plant because it produces Curol, a compound used for treating certain kinds of cancer. Curol cannot be produced in the laboratory. Botana Curus grows very slowly and is on the endangered species list, so its ability to provide Curol in large quantities is limited.

    Danitza Petricio Paola Massardo Professor Jamin Casey HCA May 13th, 2013 Student-centered educational model Education is perhaps the most important task a person can do in their life. Education is the health of our brain, and we need to work on it. Its intention is to mentally, physically, and emotionally benefit the person by putting them in a better place than they were previously in before. Many educators believe, perhaps implicitly, that learning depends primarily on the teacher…

    Hola Señora, I am very concerned about my quarter grade in relation to legend book. I am very appreciative that you are giving Emma, Caroline, and me a chance to revise this, but I do not think an incomplete would reflect my hard work this quarter. I currently have a 98 and I understand this is a large grade, but I feel that it would not be fair if I am given an incomplete as a quarter grade due to my current standings. Again thank you for this opportunity, but please consider my hard work when inputting…

    Hola Diana, hope you are ok and have had a good week. Oh I see what you mean about the hamsters, they were discovered in 1926, so that it is where all the pet hamsters came from. There's no need to apologize Diana, when you make practical jokes like I do (like the banana tree) , you have to expect to be doubted sometimes. It's like the story of Peter and the wolf (you'll know the music, by Prokofiev) , where the boy(peter), was always saying there's a wolf coming when there wasn't, as a joke to frighten…

    Hola Diana, hope you are enjoying your week, and a happy easter to you too. Yes I saw those videos of the ice bridge collapsing , it must have been amazing to be there hearing all the noises of the ice craking and the thunderous sound of it falling into the lake, you wouldn't want to be in a fishing boat there when that crashed. Not looking forward to this saturday without the 60's show, and it will be sad to loose the people that can't make the sunday slot. I'll post this bit before it crashes again…
