I close my eyes and hold my breath. I know it won't hurt, but there's a mental block that keeps me from looking. I click the trigger, and open my eyes. I place the crimson-red droplet of blood onto the test strip. 3...2...1... *insert number here*.

When redecorating your kitchen, why would choosing marble counter tops be a poor decision?
Marble is metamorphosed limestone, which is composed of calcite. Calcite weathers easily, and when exposed to anything acidic it corrodes. Repeated exposure to spills of anything acidic, like orange juice, would eventually destroy the counter top. Marble is also a relatively soft rock, therefore can easily be damaged if stuck or scratched by a harder object.
Why is anthropology important, and why should it continued to be studied?
Anthropology is the study of humans; like you and I. The four sub-fields of anthropology tell us about who we are: physical anthropology tells us how our ancestors evolved into modern-day humans and about our own physical attributes, archaeology tells us how ancient human lifestyles and how many of our modern-day cultures/cities developed, cultural anthropology tells us how other cultures exist/what their lifestyles are like, and linguistic anthropology tells us about how humans communicate with each other. Many people think that it isn't necessary to study anthropology however, anthropology is vital. Forensic anthropology (a sub-category of physical anthropology) is used daily by our law-enforcement to figure out how people were murdered/other causes of death. Medical anthropology (another sub-category of physical anthropology) studies the medicine of other cultures and helps determine which treatments are best used and how to prevent diseases among different communities around the world. Both cultural and linguistic anthropology help us understand the differences between cultures and different communities across the globe, and are helping to close the gap between them and spread the understanding that although there are differences we are ultimately all the same. Archaeology allows us to understand the importance of how our modern-day societies have evolved into what they are today, and the importance of the cultures behind them. Without studying anthropology, the world would be a very different place.
