𝐇𝐄𝐘 𝐅𝐑𝐈𝐄𝐍𝐃𝐒!
.
I really hope you can join us this Thursday night at 7pm, to talk about Essential Oils and emotions.
.
You might think it sounds like crazy sauce, but these oils work and are amazing. If you haven’t heard my story about my anxiety and the oil that has help me so much, basically...Inner Child Essential Oil + over my heart and on my wrists daily = relief. (Ryan notices a difference too 🤪)
.
.
𝐇𝐎𝐍𝐄𝐒𝐓𝐋𝐘
.
.
How does it work? A short version: Young Living Oils are pure essential oils, (not diluted with other stuff like many out there) and they work with our bodies and stimulate our limbic system, where our brains process emotions, memories and more. Science! Not crazy sauce.
.
PM for more info or use the link in my bio to check out the event on Facebook!

  • We're going to learn about biocontainment at Science Cafe. Remember when Gwenyth Paltrow had the contagion in that movie and died and everyone was a little happy about it? (Everyone = @nonnahs77 ) #scienceiscool #sciencecafe

  • Rust Doesn't Give You Tetanus!
🔩
Ever step on a rusty nail? It was, in all likelihood, rapidly followed by your parents dragging you to the doctor’s office for a painful (but safe!) tetanus shot. The memory of my first tetanus shot is preceded by an exploring an abandoned barn and getting cut by a stray wire fence. If it had happened in my own home it wouldn’t have even deserved a band-aid, but the threat of rust sent us to the doctor's office.
👩🏼‍⚕️
But it turns out that injuries caused by rusty objects aren’t any worse than injuries caused by any other discarded object.
🔩
Tetanus, or lockjaw, is a bacterial infection caused by Clostridium tetani, an extremely hardy rod-shaped bacterium found in animal digestive tracts and soil worldwide. Tetanus is fatal in about 10% of cases but causes muscle spasms, fever and trouble swallowing in all cases.
👩🏼‍⚕️
The reason we associate tetanus with rust is because it’s often found in soil that’s rich in organic material like manure or dead leaves. Old houses, cars or other discarded items left in nature for long enough will rust (if they’re metal) and collect bacteria like Clostridium tetani, but the relationship between rust and tetanus-causing bacteria is purely correlative, not causative. Humans can be exposed to Clostridium tetani in a variety of non-rusty ways, such as when cleaning animal cages, when bitten by infected animals, or if exposed to contaminated heroin.
🔩
So if your skin is pierced from anything from your own kitchen knife to a rusty gnarled screw, or if you begin working on a farm, it's worth making sure that your tetanus shot is up to date. After all, (in Canada at least) it's free and lasts an entire decade.

  • 🧬 DNA!! 🧬 ⠀
⠀
Deoxyribonucleic acid is a molecule composed of two chains that coil around each other to form a double helix. Your DNA is your hereditary material and contains all the information that essentially makes you...YOU 🤩(as well as encoding for all of the proteins and everything else you need to function!)⠀
⠀
Most DNA replication as well protein synthesis happens at night - in fact, 30x more cellular turnover happens at night vs during the day!! ⠀
⠀
The reason for this is because in order to replicate, or start the process of creating proteins, our DNA must unwind. ⠀
⠀
When our DNA is unwound it is the MOST vulnerable to assault whether that be from free radicals, or environmental factors like sunlight. ⠀
If we were to do more repair during the day our DNA would be at greater risk for actinic (sun) damage. 🤯⠀
⠀
Fun fact- why I preach so much about wearing sunscreen is because ultraviolet radiation from the sun is strong enough to cause your DNA to inappropriately bind to itself in a hair-pin loop, this is called a thymine:thymine dimer. 😱🙅🏼‍♀️⠀
⠀
To remove this mistake, your body must recognize the error and cut it out of the DNA and then re-insert the correct sequence. Whenever our body must correct for something it opens the door for more error. This is significant because skin cancer in itself is a abnormal functioning cell, typically we see this as a skin cell continuously proliferating and losing the “stop” function. ⠀
Moral of the story: DNA is cool, and you should wear sunscreen 🧬 😎 ☀️ 🧴 ⠀

  • Had some fun yesterday at the @azscience from our free culture passes from the @phoenixpubliclibrary we picked up on Friday 🧫 It was such a fun experience for us, and we killed about 2 hours of our day and could’ve kept going! We will definitely be taking another trip soon 🧪

  • 5.D ve 5F sınıflarımızla ilk haftadan etknlik planlaylım dedik.. Ve keyfli fotoğraf karelerine ulaştık... bu haftamızın etkinliği..
. "Ey koca şehir sen mi büyüksün... ?" ve
"Minik Dünya Avuçlarımda" :)
.
Malzemelerimiz----------
Bir adet cep telefonu
Birazcık düşünce gücü
Ve anı yakalayabilme kabilyeti...:)
. 
Öğrencilerimiz "küçük nesneleri fotoğraflarda neden büyük ya da büyük nesneleri fotoğraf karesinde neden küçük görürümü" araştırdılar :))) ve Ay dan çok daha büyük olan Güneşin neden daha küçük göründüğünü keşfettiler...
.
Öğrenci dönütü..Hocam burda Pisa Kulesi vardı da biz mi devirmedik 😌😌
. 
Aramıza yeni katılan ve Butikfen sayfasına bu sene çalışmalarıyla katkılar sunacak olan  5/D ve 5/F öğrenclerine ŞİMDİDEN kocaman Teşekkür ederiz.. İyiki varsınız.. 🌸🌸🌸🌸🌸🌸🌸🌸🌸🌸🌸
.
💓 💓 💓 💓
Çalışmaları beğenerek 😍ve sevdiklerinizi davet ederek👾 bizlere destek olabilirsiniz💥

  • We started our weather week today ☉⛆🌦🌡
We built our weather station, learned about storms and are finishing with some coloring!
Finally feeling like were in the groove📚

  • Yes. I am a Christian but that doesn't even affect my science enthusiasm. I believe that jesus christ is my LORD. I know this is gonna trigger many atheist science lovers to accuse me of posting this. But that doesn't stop me from my worship of christ. I believe in Big bang and Evolution.

  • Did you know? 
Thieves Cleaner by Young Living contains two different sulfates that are derived from coconut oil and sugar.😊 These all-natural and safe sulfates that are considered surfactants, which contain a molecule that loves water and a molecule that hates water. That means the Thieves Cleaner sticks to the surface and grabs the oil and then washes away easily with water.🤗🤗🤗 #ScienceIsCool
