What is the physical long term effects that result from stress?
Stress is a negative emotional experiences that are brought on by stressors (stressful events). With stress from daily hassles like getting stuck in traffic to life events, like having a loved one die, it can take a big negative toll on one's body and life. Physical stress that can occur is an increase of epinephrine and norepinephrine (fight or flight hormones released from the nervous system) which can suppress cellular immune function, which results in an increase blood pressure and heart rate. Other physical stressors would be the common headache, muscle tension and pain, stomach upset, and can also mess with sleep patterns (insomnia= inability to sleep). Stress can also mess with problems in the nervous system, like impairment of verbal, communication and concentration. Allostatic load (like chronic hypertension) can also play a big role, which is the physiological costs of chronic exposure to the physiological change that results form repeated or chronic stress. This is results in increase weight, blood pressure, and can lead to accelerated aging.

How do I organize and tackle the daily life events that occur as a college student?
The key to this answer is time management! As a college student, I know how it feels taking on multiple activities a day. I am an executive board member of my cultural club, play club lacrosse, intern at a heart clinic, as well as being a full time student. Instead of stressing about having all of these daily life activities, I took a step back, relaxed, and created a schedule. My favorite thing to cary around is a small planner that I can just pop into my purse or backpack. With a planner, I make sure at the beginning of every school year to import all of my class subjects (& yes I put in every assignment and tests from my syllabus the first week of school), than inputed all my extra curricular. With a planner I no longer had to juggle all of these activities in my head, but I can see what needs to get done, set a deadline, and execute it! Don't stress what you can control, It is all about organization and how you handle thing but also don't take on what you know you cannot handle. College is one big life lesson, take advantage of it, and STAY ORGANIZED!!!
When looking at the upper posterior compartment of the arm, what nerve innervates the Triceps Brachii Long head?
An easy way to remember the nerves that innervate the arm is to compartmentalize them. The nerve that innervates all of the posterior arm muscles is the tibial nerve. So instead having to memorize the nerve for each individual posterior arm muscle, think of it as a whole.
