Popilsky 1 Tovah Popilsky SID: 3033831805 Shawn Shirazi Wednesday 3:00PM Discussion Section 25 September 2018 Homework #2: Pharmako Passage Response “The ally’s secret face is terror. The alcohol ally is like slime, slow-moving, growing on you, at first only a fine veneer like a slug trail. But later more layers collect, until you feel unclean.” -Pharmako Poeia, page 56 While reading the alcohol chapter, I thought that this was an interesting passage because of how it introduced alcohol and yeast as an ally and enemy. This passage is near the beginning of the chapter concerning yeast. I thought it was really interesting that something so harmless like yeast which is primarily used for baking bread would be introduced as something so dangerous. This is a common theme with the substances and plants we are learning about. The passage mainly focuses on the way that yeast can be harmful when it is present in creating alcohol, but does not really talk about the other less harmful uses for it. It is barely considered an ally.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
