BioChemistry- Krebs Cycle

Now comes the day when one must put aside all that is important to dedicate ones life to the memorization of biochemical reactions. 
Current subjects of torture include, but are not limited to, glycolysis  and the Krebs cycle. 
In themselves, they are not hard to understand, but the steps at times can be a bit daunting.

I am such a student that need visuals to learn. Or, better yet, I enjoy coming up with the stupidest rhymes or songs in order to memorize something.
I recently found this magical song, and have memorized the Krebs cycle in no time.

Finals are coming people

Good it that time again? I guess it is. Crack out the books, give a little prayer, and study, study, study. Don't forget to take that much needed coffee break every few hours. Your would't want to do something like fall asleep now would you?

For a little help with those studying biology, check out these study guides on my Hubpage:

Also, check out places like khan academy (the best stuff ever)

Good Luck!

Soil Evidence

Forensic Examination of Soil Evidence
Soil is a form of forensic evidence typically used to place an individual or item at a specific
location. For example mud from shoes or wheel wells can be used to show a suspect or their
vehicle was at the site of a body dump.
Soil is an extremely complex material with both organic and inorganic components that come
from natural and man-made origins. Forensic analysis typically focuses on physical
characteristics such as color and density, with elemental analysis as a final step. In this lab you
will compare the color and particle size distributions in order to identify the origin of a soil
Cool stuff right?

The First Mechanical Gear was found in a Living Creature

A mechanical gear was found in a living creature? 

O.O Oh no! Some poor little creature ate another man made mechanical wonder :'(

.....errr nope. You see this gear is not something this creature, know as a Issus nymph, simply ate while savaging for food, it is actually part of its body.

Yup, you heard that right. It is a part of its body.
You see, these little buggers have the uncanny ability to jump really high, really fast. And it is all thanks to the mechanical gear little portion of their legs.

What is Oxygen?

The Mysterious Oxygen

When taking in a lung full of air, many gases enter the lungs. These gases include; Nitrogen, Oxygen, Carbon Dioxide, and others. But, what the lungs really needs, is the Oxygen in the air. Why is this? Because we, as human being, need oxygen to prosper. Those tiny O2atoms give life to our cells, which enables our cells to work and us to live. What is Oxygen though? Oxygen is the third most abundant element on our planet. This element has many properties, an interesting history, and a broad number of uses.

Gummy Bear Meets Potassium Chlorate Reaction!

The Crime

Rain poured down in sheets outside a lonely jail cell were a criminal known as C12H22O11 awaited his fate. His crimes were so high, that morality had ceased to exist in his world. Destruction, death, and unbelievable horror followed him everywhere that he had ventured. The blood of countless victims stained his hands. And for his crimes, he was being sentenced to death.
The Method

The courts decided to make his execution an example to deter criminals across the nation. They brought in doctors, physicists, and chemists from around the world to collaborate on the worst method possible. They debated for countless hours. Ethics and morels were forgotten during the grueling dark two weeks of devising the most horrendous method of death for such a criminal. Late at night on the fourteenth day, a solution was reached. The C12H22O11 was known to have a passion for arson in his killings, so it was decreed that he would die by a similar means.
His fate: Death by Rapid Oxidation
