Cancer Assignment: Part A
1. Cancer is a group of diseases in which cells grows and divide out of control, it is caused by a change in DNA that controls the cell cycle. This DNA change causes for cells not to stay in interphase for the normal amount of time, and some of the checkpoints fail and cause the cells to divide uncontrollably. The uncontrollable division rate can create a massive group of cells called a tumour. The cells of the tumour may stay together and have no other effect on the tissues around it, this is known as a benign tumour. There is also a tumour known as a malignant tumour, which causes interference with functioning of neighbouring cells and tissues. Malignant tumours could even destroy surrounding tissues, but malignant

When a cell divides, it's DNA is copied error-free, but sometimes random changes occur called mutations. The changes can result in the death of the cell or allow the cell to live and continue to grow and divide. When the DNA starts to act abnormally, the cells could become cancerous and proliferate wildly through repeated, uncontrolled mitosis and cytokinesis. Some mutations are caused by carcinogens: environmental factors that cause cancer, some include, tobacco smoke, radiation, such as x-rays and UV rays from tanning beds and sunlight.
3. Cancer screening is checking for cancer even if there isn't any symptoms. A pap test is a where a doctor takes cervical cells and tests them for cancer. Men can detect testicular cancer through self examination. There's also a blood test called the PSA, that a doctor can prescribe for prostate cancer.

    Ocean waves are caused by many different factors. Usually waves are created by the wind; the wind transfers its energy to the water, through friction between the air molecules and the water molecules. The stronger the winds, the stronger the waves. Water waves usually do not go horizontally, they only move up and down. Some factors that also cause waves are tsunamis, earthquakes, and hurricanes. Surprisingly, wind speeds, the distance over which the winds blow, and the time that the winds are in contact with the water all determine the height and speed of the wave. Waves can travel thousands of miles from their source of “origin”. But it’s not the water moving, it’s the energy. As a wave approaches shore, friction between the bottom of the wave and the…

    The first assignment I have chosen to do my reflection on is the module three newspaper article assignment. I chose this assignment because this module really got me thinking about the type of media we absorb based on external influences. Since the lead comes first in the inverted pyramid format, the reader does not have to take a long time to read the story in order to get a good understanding of what the story is about. Therefore, many would choose to read a newspaper story when they do not have a lot of time on their hands. I enjoyed doing this assignment as I like the concept of taking an iconic fictional story and converting it into a format that makes it appear as if it were non-fictional. It made the creation process entertaining and…

    “In other words, the secret to happiness through work is earned success” – Brooks adds further. (Brooks 2) Many people consider work as the source of happiness, but for some unclear reasons they fail to find happiness and wonder what they do wrong. Usually they think it is because they work and earn not really much. The truth is that they look for pleasure got from work not in the right way. The value of success is not in material result, it is in improving skills and mastering. Then, Brooks broadens this idea with the phrase: “You can measure your earned success in any currency you choose. You can count it in dollars, sure — or in kids taught to read, habitats protected or souls saved.” It is the great view of success; with such an approach, success will become happiness indeed. Richard Schoch, a cultural critic, in his essay “A Critique of Positive Psychology”, assumes work as the obvious source of happiness. He states that “Work itself—challenging, rewarding and secure employment—also contributes greatly to happiness” (Schoch 451). In fact, it would be strange if successful work could not lead to happiness. Work takes the large part of everyone’s life; being passionate about work, loving it, seeing use of work for society, getting positive results from work – all these are powerful sources of bright emotions and happiness. When a person puts all the efforts and then gets the benefits of it, he…
