Lapchak 1 -1 Stephen Lapchak Catherine Newell Writing 2 5 December 2010 114 Years in Review If at the age of 20, you would’ve told me that I would still be living in the year 2104, at a remarkable age of 114, I would’ve told you that you were nuts. Never in my wildest dreams, did I think that I would live this long, but the same could be said about the changes in the world that I’ve managed to endure and thrive in for over a century. First and foremost I would like to pay homage to the medical machines that have not only kept me alive, but in some of the best states of health that I could possibly be in. Now, when I mention that the machines are keeping me alive, this does not mean that I am forever hooked up to a machine in order to keep me alive. Rather the machines I speak of, are the instruments that you will find at almost every hospital, and place of medicine in the world. These machines are the resulting products of the continued evolution of magnetic resonance elastography (MRE). Back in the 2020s Magnetic resonance elastography only produced, “an elastogram - a detailed map of tissue elasticity,” which allowed doctor’s to determine the state of an organ, and whether or not it was healthy and functioning properly, or required immediate medical attention (Collins 7). Today, magnetic resonance elastography has become the key component of all medical imagining. From images of bones and organs, to the flow of veins within arteries, magnetic resonance elastography has allowed doctors to easily visualize and interpret the bodies sustainability, and rule what medical action need be taken, if any at all.

Lapchak 2 the life expectancy rate of a person in the United States has risen from, “78.44 years in 2008,” to 119.32 years in 2100 (World Bank). Yet, as incredible as this feat may be, and how thankful that I am to still be alive, this expansion of lifetime has left our world in a bit of trouble. Space is limited throughout the world, since the population has grown to an alarming number of inhabitants. Obviously the entire world isn’t covered by housing properties, but the distance from your neighbors, even in rural areas has decreased dramatically. Some people have even began to relocate themselves to the oceans,

    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.
