in the movie SILKWOOD, Karen Silkwood a worker at a plutonium processing plant discovers that the employees are forced to work in unsafe conditions in her battle to expose this and do something about it she is shunned, tortured, infected, and eventually killed in order to keep this unsavory information quiet.
my thoughts on this movie were that it is wrong to have to work with unsafe materials with unsafe conditions, it should be a crime if it is not already.

According to this passage :
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In the field of human genetics, Mitochondrial Eve refers to the most recent common matrilineal ancestor from whom all living humans are descended. Passed down from mother to offspring, all mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) in every living person is directly descended from hers.
Mitochondrial Eve is the woman from whom all human DNA comes from and originates from. her DNA is in all of us so she is considered to be like the humanity's biological mother.

I believe that in a thousand years if humanity does start coming back together into one race we will look like a combination of all the dominant traits of the different races of humanity.

Ecological Niche of dogs
I do not really have a favorite organism, so i will choose one that is commonly known. The Ecological Niche of dogs. dogs for the most part have two niche they can fit into. One niche is to be a wild animal in the animal kingdom doing what animals do best. The other role is to be part of human society. when a dog is in the niche of human society their role is to be pets, friends, guardians, and co-workers. Their are many roles that dogs play in human society these are just a few.
My Favorite Biome
I choose this rain forest Biome because it gives you a calming and peaceful feeling when you look at it. Its climate is cool most likely foggy with mist and wet. the soil conditions would be wet soft an fertile because it rains in a rain forest a lot.
Here is some animals that live and adapt to the rain forest Biome.
