Currently recruiting two more software developers
Currently recruiting two more software developers, OnePageCRM now has a staff of 13 and plans to increase this to 18 by the end of next year.
An amazing science story will be presented at Marshall University this week when two grandchildren of Henrietta Lacks make appearances.Honeycomb Pom Poms Here's the tale:Lacks was a poor black tobacco farmer and mother of five in segregated Virginia in the 1940s. One report says she was the prettiest young woman in her community. In 1950, she felt abdominal distress and visited an emergency room. After a misdiagnosis, she was sent to Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore, where a biopsy found fast-spreading cervical cancer. She died in 1951 at age 31.During surgery, a doctor had scraped small tissue samples from her cervix.paper honeycomb balls decorations An attendant labeled them "HeLa" for her name. Later,China Fork Extensions physicians were surprised to find that, instead of dying, cells from her specimens grew robustly, doubling every 24 hours.
HeLa cells were used in research and became a phenomenon,cheap mens jackets and coats with mushrooming cultures distributed to many clinics. A Marshall announcement says:"In total, HeLa cells have been the subject of over 74,000 studies, and scientists estimate that over 50 million metric tons (equivalent to 100 Empire State Buildings) have been cultured to date. They are even being utilized in the Marshall University Joan C. Edwards School of Medicine.Custom USB Wired Gaming Keyboard"HeLa cells aided many breakthroughs such as the polio vaccine, in-vitro fertilization, cloning, gene-mapping, along with research into cancer, HIV and effects of atomic bomb radiation." Most laboratories didn't know that HeLa stood for a person.For years, the Lacks family didn't know that her tissue samples had been taken, or that they spawned a huge medical industry. In 2010, their story was told in a best-selling book, The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks.
