Keith Simpson

Keith Simpson
Keith Simpson was born in Brighton, 1907. When he was only 17 years of age, his father sent him to Medic School, and by the age of 25 he took on the role of teacher in pathology. In 1934, Dr Simpson became a supervisor in medico legal post mortems.
He was professor of forensic medicine at the University of London at Guys Hospital, and a founder member of the Association of Forensic Medicine. He was renowned for his contribution in high profile cases which took lots of forensic work in labs to solve including the acid bath murders in 1949 committed by John George Haigh and the murder of gangster of George Cornell, who was shot dead by Ronnie Cray in 1966. Solving crimes like these prevented lots of deaths because these criminals could of well killed more people than they already had.
Keith Simpson was around in the time known as the golden age of British murder, and his work was important to his country. Professor Simpson wrote an autobiography called Forty Years of Murder, which became a best seller in the 1970’s. This book mentioned many dark things and many messages to people about decision making in life.
He was the first forensic pathologist to be recognised by the Home Office, and in 1975 his long public service was recognised with the award of CBE, which an award of honour and chivalry. He by then was renowned for having done the most autopsies in the world, becoming one of the greatest pathologists of all time.
His investigating in crimes could of saved many, many lives. HIs work in forensic pathology is some of the most valuable pathology work in the world and his reputation of being such a great pathologists still lives to this day. His work will stand out and inspire many more forensic pathologists in the future.
His book was an inspiring and maybe helpful text about his life and always will help forensic pathologists in the future to help solve more crimes, and save more lives.
What is Forensic Pathology?
Forensic pathology is the investigation of how the crime happened or just how the event happened. They use the evidence that has been found to see who did what, and the objects that they found to see how they did it. Forensic pathology can help in many ways. The court order can change depending on how brutal the scene was. It is important that the forensic pathologist is as accurate as possible, because the murder could be accidental, and the person is innocent. If the criminal brutally and viciously murdered the victim, and broke many more laws at the same time, he will get heavy charges. It is a very hard job.
Forensic pathology is one of many types of forensic science, that all come together to solve one crime, and Keith Simpsons work stood out among other pathologists and was extremely helpful to the police department. His work was amazing. THANKS FORL LISTENING!!

CSI vs Reality

Forensic science is all the investigating put towards solving crimes, but shows like CSI show the complete wrong perspective on solving these crimes. In CSI, the lab where all the crimes are being solved are dark with this cool darkish blue, where in real life, forensic scientists need all the light they can get to see the tiny, faded fingerprints and marks of evidence they can to solve the crimes.
Also, the language and words the people use in CSI, are never used in real life. Just say scientists have found a hair and they check to see if the hair looks like the suspects hair. In CSI, they would say it matches they’re hair, but in real life you must say similar to or could be. Words like match to could cause lots of controversy in court because the hair might not match, but be similar to so it isn’t 100% evidence. In real life you need DNA matches, w2hich would take a long time to find.

The International Day of the Girl Child

The United Nations declared on the 11 of October it would be international day of the girl (child). The international day of the girl represents the tough challenges they face every day in their childhood. There has been lost of improvements on these problem and some girls are getting the chance of a new educational life, but most of the other girls are still having problems in their life and for this reason most girls don’t get a good education.
I learnt that Many girls all over the world are unable to attend school due to safety problems, financial problems culture barriers. The girls that go to school sometimes can’t get their own benefits due to house chores and they can’t attend school at much so they will get a bad education . all these problems are still happening and yet to be soled.
If we help the international day of the girl we can achieve many goals like getting them more technology, better grades, and polices, partnerships, community mobilization and most of all the engagement of young people’s lives.
I feel that this program will help all the girls (kids) and they can fix this hopefully soon as they can, these problems need to be fix because they are really bad for the human life, and we need to get all of those girls out of factories and into the schools for their education if I could help I would do it to help their lives.

My Body My Life: Human Body Projects Reflection

For our human body projects, we had 8 groups of 3 and 1 group of 2 and we did a project on a system. We had to include a 3D model and a PowerPoint with cue cards. The PowerPoint had to include five different categories, description, care, future, history, and problems. The 3D model had to be a working model showing how your system works.

Muscular System:
The muscular system is a system in which involves all your muscles and is all about movement. It is a very important so you need to take care of it. When you move your muscle expands. The muscular system is connected to the nervous system because nerves send messages to your muscles.

Lymphatic System:
the lymphatic system involves lymph nodes, tonsils, spleen,  and lymph’s which  travel through the body to protect the body. Lymph moves when you move. The lymphatic system was discovered by Dr Guspord Asseli in 1622. Water is good for the lymphatic system.

Circulatory System:
The circulatory system has the heart which pumps blood through the body. The blood provides nutrients across the body. Eating healthy is a great way to keep your heart healthy. One major problem you can get is heart disease. This is caused if you don’t have a healthy lifestyle. It is good to avoid stress if you want to keep your heart and your circulatory system healthy. The circulatory system involves arteries, veins, vessels and the heart. The heart pumps blood across the body and you need it to live. Veins and vessels are the tubes which carry the blood across the body. Vessels and veins are everywhere in your body. The circulatory system was discovered by William Harvey in 1616.

Digestive System:
The digestive system breaks down food, processes it and releases it from the body. The process starts from the mouth, and ends at the anus. After you chew your food, you swallow it and it travels through the oesophagus to the stomach. The oesophagus has two holes, the opening hole and the closing hole. The digestive system involves the mouth, pancreas, oesophagus, stomach, liver, gall bladder, small intestines and large intestines and the anus. After food is processed, the waste is released out from the anus. The waste is called faeces.  Some problems in the digestive system can be diabetes. You can keep your digestive system healthy by eating healthy, drinking lots of water and doing lots of exercise. The digestive system was discovered by Dr Williams when a soldier died and he did a lot of research on his body and discovered it.

Skeletal System:
the skeletal system is the bodies frame. The skeletal system involves all your bones and the skull and teeth. The skeletal system protects organs. Bones are very strong. There is an inside and and outside layer of bones. There are 206 types of bones. Bones might evolve. Calcium and lots of exercise are great for the skeletal system. You can damage your bones by breaking them, fracturing them, dislocating them or even twisting them.

Nervous system:
the nervous system involves the brain, nerves and the spinal cord. There are millions of nerves in the body. The brain is the main controller of the body. Nerves send messages across the body. The nervous system is the main system in the body. The spinal cord grows when you grow. Some problems you can get in the nervous system are epilepsy, Parkinson’s disease and many more. You can keep your nervous system healthy by eating healthy, exercise, drinking water and all those kinds of things.

Respiratory System:
the respiratory system involves the lungs, trachea, and diaphragm. You breathe in from your nose and your mouth and it goes through the trachea to the lungs. You can get lung cancer by smoking. Smoking is very bad for you because cigarettes contain poisons that are bad for the lungs.  Lots of people have asthma which is a problem in the respiratory system. The diaphragm inflates and deflates when you breathe in and out.

Urinary System:
the urinary system is the system where waste from water get processed through to the bladder and then get released. It involves kidneys, uterus, urethra and the bladder. The bladder can hold up to 0.5 litres of waste. The waste is called urine. A problem in the urinary system is a kidney stone.

Endocrine system:
the endocrine system is the system where chemical messengers called hormones send messages across the body. Glands produce the hormones. Sex hormones have a big influence on puberty. The hypothalamus is main part of the endocrine system. It issues hormones to send messages across to different parts of the body. Hormones travel through the blood stream and when it gets to a target cell it sends a message to somewhere else in the body. It sends a message because the target cell has a recptor in it and when it hits the receptor, a cell in a different part of the body with the same type of receptor receives the message and does what it is told.

Asia Project Reflection

I learnt that Microsoft Student Encarta is a great resource for finding information. I also learnt that prezi a great way to present a project and make your presentation more entertaining.

Now I can find more information that is reliable by using Microsoft Student Encarta. I can also make more entertaining presentations with Prezi.

I thought Prezi really helped me because it is easy to use and I finished my presentation faster than I thought I thought I would. Microsoft student Encarta also helped me get reliable information on Myanmar.

Facts:

Myanmar is Densely Populated.

Myanmar is not very healthy.

Myanmar is Half Forest.

Understandings:

Myanmar is densely populated because it has a high population and it’s a small country.

Myanmar is not very healthy because it suffers from extreme poverty.

Wonderings:
Why does Myanmar suffer extreme poverty.
