3.3.1 Summary

  • Claims about who is poor are rooted in shared and contested ideas about the basic necessities of life.

  • The experience of poverty is both relative and relational. It is defined by what people have, and what they can do, relative to the opportunities of others.

  • Poverty carries derogatory meanings, so it does not easily provide a basis for collective identity.

Medicine Games: Immune System Defender
Play a game and find out about a Nobel Prize awarded discovery or work! Ilya Mechnikov, one of the pioneers of immune system research, inserted a thorn into a larva and noticed strange cells gathering around the thorn. The cells were eating any foreign substances entering the ruptured skin. He called these cells phagocytes meaning "devouring cells." He later shared the 1908 Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine with another pioneer in the same field, Paul Ehrlich.

Medicine Games: Incredible Megacell Game
Play a game and find out about a Nobel Prize awarded discovery or work! The compartments of the cell, the organelles, are so small that it was impossible to study their structure until the electron microscope became available in 1938. Albert Claude, Christian de Duve and George E. Palade were awarded the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine in 1974 for developing methods making it possible to take a closer look at the organelles and for discovering some of them.

Allometry: Size and its consequences or... Why aren't there 20 foot tall ants?
Evolution has resulted in changes in the sizes and forms of organisms. Everything about the biology of an animal, including its physiology, anatomy, and ecology, is influenced by its body size. Frequently there seem to be limits on the sizes that different organisms can attain, even when larger size might be thought to be evolutionarily advantageous. Often an increase or decrease in size is correlated with a change in proportions. Understanding the significance of a particular morphology or inte
