In 1859 a Swiss writer named Henri Durant was witness to a battle in which there was a lot of bloodshed. The wounded groaned in pain and died in agony as there was none to care for them. Durant was deeply stirred by their distress. He wrote a book in which he proposed the formation of an organization to help casualties of war regardless of their nationality. Durants book aroused a great deal of interest and ultimately led to the foundation of what we now call the Red Cross Movement. In Durants honour, the symbol adopted for the organization was his countrys flag - a white cross on a red field.

Plants need food substance called carbohydrates which are essential for the energy needs of living things. Plants make carbohydrates from carbon and water. The process by which plants make carbohydrates is called photosynthesis. Here is a simplified explanation of what happens during photosynthesis. In the first stage of photosynthesis, a substance known as chlorophyll absorbs sunlight. Chlorophyll is a green substance in leaves, and it is somehow able to trap the energy in sunlight and use it in the process of making carbohydrates. Within the leaf there is a small amount of water. Chlorophyll traps the energy of the sun. The energy is used to split the water into Hydrogen and oxygen. Most of the oxygen is Released into the air. In the second stage, the chlorophyll uses the energy to combine the hydrogen with carbon Dioxide which the leaf has obtained from the air... After several complicated processes the Hydrogen and carbon dioxide is combined in such a way that carbohydrate is produced. This Carbohydrate is called glucose Later using glucose as its most important building material, the plant produce substances

In the last century, quantum leaps in technological development in various fields of science led to an unsurpassed level of achievement in the fields of Medicine, Space Travel and Electronics. Nowhere is this advancement more apparent than in the discipline of Cardiac Surgery. Till almost the end of last century, most diseases of the heart were not clearly understood and even the presence of such conditions were diagnosed only post mortem. Diagnosis in life was restricted to a few conditions, mostly dubbed as heart failure and treated with little more than bed rest, sunshine and comforting words. Today, it is possible to repair or replace a leaking or a narrowed heart valve, plumb the narrowed or blocked arteries, close a hole inside the heart, create new channels or close unwanted ones with reasonable amount of certainty. When the whole of muscle of the heart becomes diseased, since Christian Bernard in 1967 transplanted the first human heart, a new heart is transplanted in its place. Today a heart transplant is a clinical reality. Hearts are also being grown in laboratories by cloning and cell line culture techniques. These methods of organ pharming already exist and will become a clinical reality in the near future. 11. Expand the following in about 100 words 4 Marks
