  1. Cell
    is the functional basic unit of life. It was discovered by Robert Hooke and is the functional unit of all known living organisms. It is the smallest unit of life that is classified as a living thing, and is often called the building block of life.[1] Some organisms, such as most bacteria, are unicellular (consist of a single cell). Other organisms, such as humans, are multicellular.
  2. What Is the Rosetta Stone?
    • The Rosetta Stone,
    • which is housed in the British Museum, is a black, possibly basalt slab
    • with three languages on it (Greek, demotic and hieroglyphs) each saying
    • the same thing. Because the words are translated into the other
    • languages, the Rosetta Stone provided Jean-Francois Champollion the key to the mystery of Egyptian hieroglyphs.

  15. Describe how stars are born?
    Stars are born in clouds of gas and dust. Gravity pulls the gas, dust and clouds together forming stars. Gravity compresses until the center is dense and hot enough to generate energy. Stars shine with energy that creats all kinds of different elements. When stars die they explode scattering all there elements into space. The star lives as long as it can shine with energy.

  35. JARED
    • Gender: Masculine
    • Usage: English, Biblical
    • Other Scripts: יָרֶד, יֶרֶד (Ancient Hebrew)
    • Pronounced: JER-əd (English), JAR-əd (English)
    • The name Jared is pronounced as jahr-ud

    • From the Hebrew name יָרֶד (Yared) or יֶרֶד (Yered) meaning "descent".
    • This was the name of a close descendent of Adam in the Old Testament. It
    • has been used as an English name since the Protestant Reformation, and
    • it was popularized in the 1960s by the character Jarrod Barkley on the
    • television series 'The Big Valley'.

    • In the Bible, Jared was the sixth link in the ten pre-flood generations between Adam and Noah; he was the son of Mahalaleel and the father of Enoch, and lived 962 years (per Genesis 5:18).
    • Two people named Jared are mentioned in the Book of Mormon: Jared (founder of Jaredites) and Jared (Book of Mormon king).
    • The meaning of the name is "he who descended" (Hebrew root YRD). In the Book of Enoch it is explained that Mahalaleel named Jared because during his lifetime the angels of the Lord descended
    • to earth. The name could also be understood as "he who shall rule"
    • (future tense of the Hebrew root RDH, as found for example in Psalms 72:8).
  36. Energy
    • In physics, energy (from Greek ἐνέργεια - energeia, "activity,
    • operation", from ἐνεργός - energos, "active, working"[1]) is a quantity
    • that is often understood as the ability to perform work. This quantity
    • can be assigned to any particle, object, or system of objects as a
    • consequence of its physical state.
    • Different forms of energy include kinetic, potential, thermal,
    • gravitational, sound, elastic and electromagnetic energy. The forms of
    • energy are often named after a related force. German physicist Hermann
    • von Helmholtz
    • established that all forms of energy are equivalent — energy in one
    • form can disappear but the same amount of energy will appear in another
    • form.[2] A restatement of this idea is that energy is subject to a conservation law over time.
    • Any form of energy can be transformed
    • into another form. When energy is in a form other than thermal energy,
    • it may be transformed with good or even perfect efficiency, to any other
    • type of energy. With thermal energy, however, there are often limits to
    • the efficiency of the conversion to other forms of energy, due to the second law of thermodynamics.
