Sociology

Question:

We often hear the word "status" used in everyday life. However, in sociological terms, "status" can be broken down into two categories, achieved or ascribed status. Explain these two terms and their differences.

Michael W.
Answer:

Achieved status is a status that is chosen, earned, or won by an individual. Ascribed statuses are statuses one is born with. Examples of these would be business owner (achieved) or male (ascribed). Ascribed statuses cannot be chosen.

Biochemistry

Question:

Metabolism is the driving force of life; when blood sugar is low, what hormone is released in order to regain ordinary levels of blood sugar? What process catalyzes this increase?

Michael W.
Answer:

When blood sugar is low, glucagon is secreted by the pancreas to signal to the liver that it must undergo gluconeogenesis and/or glycogenolysis. These two processes allow glucose to be released from the liver into the blood, restoring normal blood sugar levels.
