The correct answers will be announced next week when new questions are posted. Brain teasers for week of August, 9th, 2021 #1 A man looks at a picture of another man. Then he truthfully says, “Brothers and sisters I have none, but that man’s father is my father’s son.” Who is the man in the picture? #2 A farmer is trying to cross a river. He is taking with him a rabbit, carrots, and a fox, and he has a small raft. He can only bring 1 item at a time across the river because his raft can only fit either the rabbit, the carrots, or the fox. How does he cross the river? (Assume that the fox does not eat the rabbit if the man is present, and that the fox and the rabbit will not try to escape or run away). Answers from week of Aug. 2nd 2021 Question #1 - Let D = number of dollars on the check, and C = number of cents on the check, where D and C are whole numbers. The amount of the check has a value of 𝐷+𝐶100 dollars. The teller swaps the dollars and cents and gives the woman 𝐶+𝐷100 dollars. The woman spends 5 cents (5100 𝑑𝑜𝑙𝑙𝑎𝑟𝑠), so she is left with 𝐶+𝐷− 5100 dollars. That amount of money she has is equal to two times the amount of the check. Therefore, 𝐶+𝐷− 5100 = 2(𝐷+𝐶100). 100𝐶+𝐷−5 = 200𝐷+2𝐶. 199D = 98C – 5 Intuition is needed to derive the second equation. We know that the number of cents of the check must be less than 100. Since the amount that the women received was 5 cents more than twice the amount of the check once the dollars and cents were switched, the number of dollars must be less than 50. In addition to that, the number of cents must be 1 more than twice the dollar amount. Therefore, C = 2D + 1 199D = 98(2D +1) – 5 199D = 196D +93 3D = 93 D = 31 C = 2(31) + 1 = 63 The amount of the check was $31.63 Question #2 - Null Island is the name used to refer to the point on the Earth's surface where the Prime Meridian and the Equator intersect, at zero degrees latitude and zero degrees longitude (0°N 0°E). This point is located in international waters in the Gulf of Guinea, in the Atlantic Ocean, off the coast of West Africa. The point is marked with a permanent buoy.

Dragon Worm BIOGRAPHY: Special Needs: Parasites Best Friend: Lil’ Bud and Andrew Birthday: Ageless Hobbies: Discovering New Places Favorite Movie: WORMS ABOUT THE SPECIAL NEED: Parasitism is a symbiotic relationship between species , where one organism, the parasite, lives on or inside another organism, the host , causing it some harm, and is adapted structurally to this way of life.[1] The entomologist E. O. Wilson has characterised parasites as "predators that eat prey in units of less than one".[2] Parasites include single-celled protozoans such as the agents of malaria , sleeping sickness , and amoebic dysentery ; animals such as hookworms , lice , mosquitoes , and vampire bats ; fungi such as honey fungus and the agents of ringworm ; and plants such as mistletoe , dodder , and the broomrapes . There are six major parasitic strategies of exploitation of animal hosts, namely parasitic castration , directly transmitted parasitism (by contact), trophically transmitted parasitism (by being eaten), vector -transmitted parasitism, parasitoidism , and micropredation. Like predation, parasitism is a type of consumer-resource interaction ,[3] but unlike predators , parasites, with the exception of parasitoids, are typically much smaller than their hosts, do not kill them, and often live in or on their hosts for an extended period. Parasites of animals are highly specialised , and reproduce at a faster rate than their hosts. Classic examples include interactions between vertebrate hosts and tapeworms , flukes , the malaria-causing Plasmodium species, and fleas . Parasites reduce host fitness by general or specialised pathology , from parasitic castration to modification of host behaviour. Parasites increase their own fitness by exploiting hosts for resources necessary for their survival, in particular by feeding on them and by using intermediate (secondary) hosts to assist in their transmission from one definitive (primary) host to another. Although parasitism is often unambiguous, it is part of a spectrum of interactions between species , grading via parasitoidism into predation, through evolution into mutualism , and in some fungi, shading into being saprophytic . People have known about parasites such as roundworms and tapeworms since ancient Egypt , Greece , and Rome . In Early Modern times, Antonie van Leeuwenhoek observed Giardia lamblia in his microscope in 1681, while Francesco Redi described internal and external parasites including sheep liver fluke and ticks . Modern parasitology developed in the 19th century. In human culture, parasitism has negative connotations. These were exploited to satirical effect in Jonathan Swift 's 1733 poem "On Poetry: A Rhapsody", comparing poets to hyperparasitical "vermin". In fiction, Bram Stoker 's 1897 Gothic horror novel Dracula and its many later adaptations featured a blood-drinking parasite. Ridley Scott 's 1979 film Alien was one of many works of science fiction to feature a parasitic alien species. Hookworm. (Necator americanus) Scabies mite. (Sarcoptes scabiei var. Roundworm.

ABOUT THE SPECIAL NEED: ASTHMA is a condition that makes it hard to get air in and out of the lungs. A child often is short of breath, wheezes, and coughs. Wheezing is a high-pitched whistling sound that can be heard across the room but sometimes is so soft of a sound that the child’s physician may not hear it. The child often complains of being short of breath and having chest tightness or pressure. There are two major forms of Asthma - intrinsic and extrinsic, or a combination of the two. The intrinsic form of asthma is caused by exercise, smoke, paint, cold, perfumes, and medications. The extrinsic form is due to foods, insect stings, roaches, dust, and pollen. NUMBER OF CHILDREN AFFECTED: Currently, there are about 6.2 million children under the age of 18 with asthma. In 2017, 1 in 12 children had asthma. Treatment: See your Physician
