Preventing hereditary cancers associated with BRCA1 or BRCA2 gene mutations
By: BernardFriedenson nheritance of a BRCA1/2 defect predicts such high breast cancer risks that prevention has not been widely studied. Hereditary BRCA1/2 gene mutations can cause cancer by impairing protective responses to some carcinogens. BRCA deficiencies amplify cancer risks from such opportunistic carcinogens. Some hereditary cancers might be preventable by compensating for the BRCA1 or BRCA2 gene mutations.

Simplifying Radicals Using Rational Exponents
This video explains how to simplify roots that are either greater than four or have a term raised to a large number by rewriting the problem using rational exponents.  Remember that every root can be written as a fraction, with the denominator indicating the root's power.  When simplifying radicals, since a power to a power multiplies the exponents, the problem is simplified by multiplying all the exponents together.  (1:44)

The Atmosphere, the Ocean and Environmental Change (GG 140) Climate sensitivity is defined as either the temperature change resulting from a doubling of atmospheric carbon dioxide concentration or the temperature change resulting from a 1W/m2 increase in radiative forcing. There are several different climate sensitivities that take into account different feedbacks in the climate system. The simplest climate sensitivity is black body sensitivity, which does not account for any feedbacks but gi
