  1. Hi so as part of a zoology degree, I'm doing a human geography class and learning about the current European Migrant Crisis. Just wondering if anyone has ever written about what it really means to be allowed on to a particular piece of land, who has the right to live where. I'm assuming philosophy would be the best place to start but if it's better suited in the political science forum feel free to move this there. Not just or the present day, though I am interested in that too, but historically. Maybe even if anyone has ever written on the very first human migrations out of Africa, not
  2. Hi I'm just wondering if someone can point me in the right direction for learning more about this, or if you have personal knowledge. CNS fatigue is a big "thing" in the fitness industry but all I can find are glossy articles and stuff that sounds terribly like broscience on forums, I've not been able to find much in the way of scientific research, though that could just be my untrained searching skills. Thanks in advance.
  3. Hi, I'm trying to work out how the cell removes and recycles proteins in the cell membrane, such as ion channels. I think it'll be by 'digestion' by lysosomes, but I spent hours last night searching for the actual mechanism/process by which they are physically removed from the membrane when the time comes, and I couldn't find anything. Cinophagy seems to the closest thing to it, but I'm not sure if that is exactly right. Even just a point in the right direction to the name of the process or a website with the info, rather than the answer would be greatly appreciated. Thanks guys.
  4. Hi guys, as the title says I just have a couple of questions regarding ^ I am aware that rust is a compound that contains water molecules and is an oxidation of iron with oxygen and water, but just wondering if iron can corrode and the result be something else other than rust (no water molecules present - corroded iron, something like that). And regarding zinc, just that if this is the main difference between the corrosion of iron and zinc, that iron forms rust and zinc would not. I tried a google search but couldn't find anything specific. Cheers.
  5. Hi guys I was wondering if any of you had a few suggestions for a good quality first microscope? I've got a £50 amazon voucher, but I don't mind putting a bit more of my own money towards it, but that's my rough price range. It's just for messing around with at home for fun and it might come in handy when I start a distance learning biology course in a couple of months, that sort of grade/spec is what I'm after. Thanks in advance.
