Transcript: Characterizing Litchi chinensis through ABTS Radical Scavenging Assays and Folin-Ciocalteu Method Ayat Agha Professor Brian Rafferty, PhD Professor Adolfina Koroch, PhD Borough of Manhattan Communtiy College Conclusion Materials & Methods Data & Result Abstract Introduction Over many years, alternative medicinal plants have been used to treat various sicknesses. Litchi chinensis, also known as Lychee, is a fruit of the soapberry family. Native to Eastern India, Southeast Asia, and China, the fruit used to treat the common cold, kidney problems, and to help fight viruses. The fruit is known to contain high antioxidants levels (-carotene, Vitamin C, epicatechin, rutin) with anti-inflammatory and anti-cancerous properties. The objective of this study is to prepare extracts from fruit’s coat, pulp, and seeds then evaluate their potential antioxidant and total phenolic capacity. Each part of the fruit was dried and ground to a fine powder. The powders were placed in boiling water for 15 minutes creating extracts. Total phenolic content was determined using the Folin-Ciocalteu method. The antioxidant levels were determined using the ABTS radical scavenging assay. The highest content of phenolics and antioxidant capacity was found in the coat of the fruit. In future research, the extracts from the fruit will be applied to human cell lines from both the oral cavity and the intestinal tract. We will determine at what concentration are the extracts considered cytotoxic to the cells. This will be monitored though MTT proliferation assay and LDH leakage assay. Once a viable concentration is found, we will expose our cells to begin testing the anti-inflammatory properties. We expect the coat to remain consistent in reporting high levels of anti-inflammatory properties as well. Why Litchi Chinensis? High Antioxidant Levels Vitamin C Rutin beta-Carotene Epicatechin Seed is known to be poisonous Contains methylene cycloglycine Materials and Methods Preparing the Extracts Preparation of the Extracts The samples used to make the extracts were commercial dried samples of the whole fruit. The fruit was taken apart by hand and separated by coat, pulp, and seed.

Aggravated burglary may occur where a burglar commits the crime using a deadly weapon, or if the structure that is entered is a personal home. Amanda Lee: Sentenced to life in prison for arson. Where someone starts a fire with the intent to harm or kill someone else, an arson conviction can bring a life sentence. Normal Prison Life Prison Life What they eat: Breakfasts usually consist of a danish, cereal (hot or cold), and milk. Regular meals consist of chicken, hamburgers, hotdogs, lasagna, burritos, tacos, and fish patties. Most prison food in the United States is prepared with the blast-chill method, which allows a large number of meals to be prepared and then reheated at meal times.Inmates may also purchase food at the prison commissary, such as chocolate bars, beef jerky, honey, peanut butter, bread, coffee, and snack cakes. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Prison_food https://www.tampabay.com/news/publicsafety/crime/pinellas-inmates-can-shop-from-cushy-commissary-accounts/1268503 Double click to edit Sleeping in Prison Where prisoners sleep https://yintininc.en.ec21.com/Prison-Bunk-Steel-Bunk-Prison--7317070_7318276.html Prisoners for the most part share a cell with a bunkie, which is their roommate. They often switch bunks and try to keep their small spaces organized. Sleeping in prison is difficult in the beginning, because you aren't used to the uncomfortable mat that is given to you as you're bed. Prisoner Activities Include: Activities employment: Some prisoners work in the kitchen serving meals or cleaning, or doing other things around the prison education: They can also take some classes on english as a Second Language, parenting classes, wellness education, adult continuing education, library services sports: Basketball, kickball etc. library time: Catch up on reading material provided by the the prison Example Of Prison Life Video: Services Avalible to Inmates: Available Services Religious services Drug and alcohol prevention groups Women's groups on anger management and domestic violence prevention Life skills classes Group counseling http://www.co.davis.ut.us/sheriff/jail/programs http://prisonersforchrist.org/national https://criminal.findlaw.com/criminal-charges/view-all-criminal-charges.html https://www.co.washington.or.us/Sheriff/Jail/JailPrograms/index.cfm https://www.criminaldefenselawyer.com/crime-penalties/federal/Arson.htm Works Cited Works Cited

Transcript: My paper talks about the federal prison system. In this paper i point out that prisons are expressed, to the public, as rehabilitation facilities, or correctional facilities (in reference to them correcting the behavior of criminals.) that house dangerous people. Little do members of the outside population know, prisons are in actuality, facilities that are over populated with people who are treated lie animals and are created just to satisfy the greed of the government. In my paper I also explore the inner workings of The Nation Trust Foundation which works to take incarcerated men and turn them into positive members of society. Prison: A place of rehabilitation or a governmental form of legal punishment and misconduct? Solution? My Grandfather Garry Mendez Jr. is the founder of The National Trust which is an organization that works to rehabilitate incarcerated men. For years he has worked to expose the truth behind the fact that prisons are not proper forms of rehabilitation, but money making organizations that profit from the number of humans incarcerated. From a professional's View The Re Offenders Rather than having billions of tax payers money go towards housing inmates and eventually repeat offenders, tax money should go towards organizations like The National Trust, which works to rehabilitate prisoners, allowing them to become productive citizens in the community. Prisons are overrun with more than 2.2 million Americans who are currently incarcerated.Out of all inmates, 52 percent are repeat offenders. Where dose the money go? Start @ 3:45-11:00 Stats! The 50 states last year spent about $44 billion in tax dollars on corrections, up from nearly $11 billion in 1987. Rehabilitation is a Possibility 170,588 inmates as of 2007 - 475 inmates per 100,000 state residents Thesis: On Average: "In 2008, over 7.3 million people were on probation, in jail or prison, or on parole at year-end --- 3.2% of all U.S. adult residents or 1 in every 31 adults." - Prison vs.Rehabilitation, Susan Hillman Video Funding The average American prison is found to be 14 percent overcrowded with some prisons carrying 34 percent over their capacity. Our government spends $60 billion annually on corrections.
