Love is a condition in which the happiness of another person is essential to your own.
YOUR IMMUNE SYSTEM
How you are perceived on Valentine’s day depends on your words and actions every day.
“Love is a condition in which the happiness of another person is essential to your own.” ∼Robert Heinlein
On 14 February Valentine’s day, you can send cute, lovely and caring messages to your loved ones.
People love to celebrate this day in a romantic way with a girlfriend, boyfriend, husband, and wife.
They also share inspirational quotes for Valentine’s day with people that are close to their hearts.
We think of those who make our life worthwhile, those gracious, friendly people who we think of with a smile.
This message goes out to Dan and my daughter, thank you for the special joy I've found in loving you. We have had many sweet yesterdays and I know we have bright tomorrows too!
I’m starting a new series to blog about; your immune system is one of the most important functions of your body that fights off diseases. During these uncertain times with corona virus, I felt that this topic is well worth speaking about.
First, we must know the meaning of scientific methods. The scientific method is a process for creating models of the natural world that can be verified experimentally. The scientific method requires making observations, recording data, and analyzing data in a form that can be duplicated by other scientists. In addition, the scientific method uses inductive reasoning and deductive reasoning to try to produce useful and reliable models of nature and natural phenomena.
Inductive reasoning is the examination of specific instances to develop a general hypothesis or theory, whereas deductive reasoning is the use of a theory to explain specific results. In 1637 René Descartes published his Discours de la Méthode in which he described systematic rules for determining what is true, thereby establishing the principles of the scientific method.
The scientific method has four steps; Observation and description of a phenomenon. The observations are made visually or with the aid of scientific equipment.
Formulation of a hypothesis to explain the phenomenon in the form of a causal mechanism or a mathematical relation.
Test the hypothesis by analyzing the results of observations or by predicting and observing the existence of new phenomena that follow from the hypothesis. If experiments do not confirm the hypothesis, the hypothesis must be rejected or modified.
Definition of hypothesis
1a: an assumption or concession made for the sake of argument
b: an interpretation of a practical situation or condition taken as the ground for action
2: a tentative assumption made in order to draw out and test its logical or empirical consequences
3: the antecedent clause of a conditional statement
Definition of phenomenon
1: plural phenomena: an observable fact or event
2: plural phenomena
a: an object or aspect known through the senses rather than by thought or intuition
b: a temporal or spatiotemporal object of sensory experience as distinguished from a noumenon
c: a fact or event of scientific interest susceptible to scientific description and explanation
3a: a rare or significant fact or event
B: plural phenomenon’s: an exceptional, unusual, or abnormal person, thing, or occurrence
Sorry for the science class, however; before we start on the topic of the immune system, I felt this was needed to explain to continue. For Dan and I had treatment for our cancer with alternative methods, we also had scientific approaches to manage our cancer.
How the Body Reacts to Viruses (YOUR IMMUNE SYSTEM)?
We live in a microbial world, which means that we constantly encounter microorganisms that could harm our health. The human immune system continuously defends us against these threats to our survival. Understanding how immunity works is important for making sense of the news around the risk, spread, and treatment of diseases like corona virus.
The immune system mounts a response against pathogens as they infect an individual and replicate. The response includes both an immediate innate response and a slower adaptive response.
The innate immune response forms the first line of defense against invading pathogens.
Innate immunity includes barriers and a variety of cells and molecules that are part of the rapid response to threats to our health. I will be blogging on the various aspects of the innate immune response and the ways in which they work together to prevent and control infection. While the immune system protects us from many pathogens, the inflammation that occurs as part of the immune response can also damage our own tissues and impair the function of our organs when pathogens stimulate a very strong response.
Innate immunity can help protect us from a variety of pathogens, including the coronavirus that causes COVID-19, though the specifics and the efficacy of the response can differ depending on the type of pathogen. While the innate immune response is able to prevent or control some infections, it is limited in the ways in which it can react. The adaptive immune response, which includes both B cell-based humoral immunity and T cell-based cellular immunity, reacts much more specifically and powerfully to invading pathogens. B cells produce antibodies that help to control microbial invasion in a variety of ways.
The antibodies produced by B cells form part of the adaptive immune response and can recognize almost any molecule that might invade the body. In addition, there is a second branch to the adaptive immune system called cellular immunity. T cells form the basis of cellular immunity and can very specifically kill cells that have been infected by viruses.
The T cells form the second branch of the adaptive immune response. Unlike B cells, the receptors on T cells are only able to recognize protein fragments displayed on specific cell surface molecules.
While the innate immune and B cell responses are effective against a wide variety of pathogens, T cells can respond very specifically to intracellular pathogens, such as viruses.
Until next time, too often we need encouragement and motivation to move forward in our lives. Sometimes, a little push is all we want to take action. In those depressed life moments, one word can make a big difference. Maybe, a stranger who just said ‘SMILE’ during your morning walk made you smile for the whole day. Or, you’re skimming through social media and found a one word quote, ‘INSPIRE’. These type of one word quotes are so inspiring and often take you back to memorable events of your life.
