1 Thieny Nguyen Professor Khalil MEDA 115 Tue 1.05 – 4.15 14 March 2009 Step into a New World I attended the Body Worlds exhibit on 03/14/2009. Actually, I could not imagine how it would be or expect a long line like that to get the ticket for the exhibition. The place is dark, too many people, have to wait awhile for people to move out of the way to read or see the body or part. Some of the plastinate poses are: Elegance on Ice '05 The Angel '05 The Drawer Man '99 The X-Lady '05 The ballet dancer '05 The yoga lady '05 The flying skier '02 The exploded body '05 The ponderer '05 The Skateboarder'05 Man of Leisure '02 The Ringman '02

Unformatted text preview: that much of the human body, is amazing. I am so happy that I decided to see this. Instead of just one large room with all specimens staggered in one space, the Tech created several rooms to walk through. The plasticized placenta alone was so amazing. I just never realize how large it is and how many veins are developed to supply blood to the baby. I thought that the display was art and science. I passed by all the rooms, the third floor and the basement for 2.5 hours, but I thought this display was really worth it. I personally loved the President Reagan’s letter. It was put in the room displayed the examples for Alzheimer and other nervous system diseases, so touching! The way the bodies were displayed was nothing more than pure and utter elegance. I cherish the gift of knowledge that I received in this exhibition....

    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.
