Police Functions Paper

According to The American System of justice, Policing has three main functions maintaining order in society, Law Enforcement, and provide service. Police has a mandate to keep the peace or to prevent bad behaviors that which disturb others.
This can range from a person playing loud music to an all out fight, the police is usually on call to handle these types of situations and have the authority to deal with these matters committed under the law.
Law Enforcement uses his powers in cases where there has been a violation of the law and the criminal must be apprehended. Such as a robbery, murder, house break-ins, drug violators, and burglary.
Services can include giving first aid providing needed information to citizens and tourist. Getting the disoriented a lost person, back home out of harm’s way. The police can be an educator, assisting schools or teaching topics on how to prevent drug use. Some studies showed that 80% of call did not involve crimes.
Because police agencies usually on call year round 24 hours a day people call the police when they are upset about something, police may include roadside service for some one’s car. Finding a lost dog or cat or checking locks on vacation homes.
Federal police has full authority given to them under United States Code. They operate at the highest level in policing the FBI Police. The can go anywhere in the nation to enforce law.
All Federal police are limited by the United States Code to investigate matters within the powers of the federal government.

Since the passage of the USA PATRIOT Act federal investigation powers have become very broad in practice. At the Federal level the Department of justice is responsible for most law enforcement. They include the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the Drug Enforcement…...

Carbohydrate Metabolism

...CARBOHYDRATE METABOLISM Carbohydrates are found as monosaccharides, disaccharides, and polysaccharides or complex carbohydrates. They function in energy storage (starch&glycogen), signaling (glycoproteins and glycolipids, e.g. blood group determinants), fuel the nervous system and muscle (and virtually all cells, although there are distinct cell type specific differences in choice of primary fuel molecule), are parts of nucleic acids (genes, mRNA, tRNA, ribosomes), and as cell surface markers and signaling in glycolipids and glycoproteins, are part of connective tissue (heteropolymers; glycosaminoglycans), cell wall components (cellulose, hemi-cellulose) made of polymers that are enzymatically inert for most mammals to digest (except ruminants that harbor a special digestive tract bacterium with the appropriate cellulase enzyme). The alpha glycosidic bonds found in glycogen and starch is metabolically available to humans. The major source of dietary carbohydrate for humans is starch from consumed plant material. This is supplemented with a small amount of glycogen from animal tissue, disaccharides such as source from products containing refined sugar and lactose in milk. Digestion in the gut converts all carbohydrate to monosaccharides which are transported to the liver and converted to glucose. The liver has central role in the storage anddistribution within the body of all fuels, including glucose. Glucose in the body undergoes one of three metabolic fates. First...

Investigation of Action of Saliva and 3 M Hydrochloric Acid in Two Carbohydrate Solutions

... solution B 1 ml saliva 95 The blue coloured solution remains unchanged. The blue coloured solution remains unchanged as well. Discussion : In the experiment, the enzyme amylase was involved. Amylase breaking down the starch suspension into maltose and maltose into glucose when HCL was added into solution B .This is because solution B was hydrolyzed and the H+ ions present break down the bond in between molecules of the solution B. Saliva enzyme works the best at the optimum temperature which at 37°C. Therefore, the solution B in test tube 1 is broken down completely by the saliva enzyme. At temperature 95°C , salivary amylase which was present in saliva content denatured .This is because high temperature would break down the bond holding the tertiary structure and destroyed the 3D structure of salivary amylase enzyme. The active sites of enzyme therefore changed and were no longer complementary to the substrate (carbohydrates). No simple sugar was produced, hence no reaction between sugar and Benedict’s solution took place caused the solution to remain blue. The product of the experiment conducted in Table 2 is predicted to be maltose and glucose. Both maltose and glucose are carbohydrates. Glucose is a monosaccharide while maltose is disaccharide. The structure of glucose contains single simple sugar unit but the structure of maltose contain two simple sugar unit (also known as two monosaccharides or two glucose units). Benedict’s test was used to...

Low Carbohydrate Diets

...Nutrition: Low Carbohydrate Diets Insert Name Course, Class, Semester Institution Instructor Date Nutrition: Low Carbohydrate Diets Low-carbohydrate dieting has and continues to generate varied interpretations across various settings all around the world. This can be accredited to the fact that such a diet has been postulated to help in the management of overweight and obesity, which have become significantly prevalent in the recent past. Speaking of low-carbohydrate dieting, this connotes to a diet that comprises of a limited amount of carbohydrates, but is high in fats and proteins. Arguably, low-carbohydrate dieting works because it offers a viable platform in which people, particularly obese and overweight individuals can shed excess body weight. Notably, carbohydrates occur as the major source of energy in the body (Weinblatt, 2011). During periods of excess carbohydrate intake, the body converts carbohydrates into glucose for use as an energy supply, and the surplus is converted into fats and stored in within the body. For this purpose, low-carbohydrate dieting results in shortage of energy supply; hence, prompting the body to break down fats to provide energy; thus, resulting in the reduction of excess body fats. This is perhaps the rationale as to why low-carbohydrate dieting works in curbing overweight and obesity. However, low-carbohydrate dieting poses certain adverse health effects on the body. This...

Carbohydrate Related Diseases

...CARBOHYDRATE RELATED DISEASES Jay Cee Roa Valencia PhBio26 TTh 10:30 – 12:00 Carbohydrates are being shunned by health conscious, rather weight conscious, people. They have to understand that carbohydrate deficiency diseases and their manifestations are certain to appear if there is too much exclusion of carbohydrates in the diet. All sources of food do contain carbohydrates, even animal products. However the carbohydrate level is very low in foods of animal origin with the exception of milk which contains good amount of lactose sugar. THE CAUSES OF CARBOHYDRATE DEFICIENCY DISEASES Normally, when balanced diet is consumed, carbohydrate short fall does not arise. If individuals undertake crash-dieting to achieve rapid weight loss by nutritional deprivations of carbohydrates, no doubt they may lose weight drastically in a short span of time. However, they may not be able to resist the cravings for the carbohydrates and soon by reverting to old food habits end up gaining weight. In case they are able to continue dieting, they may have to face many carbohydrate deficiency disease manifestations. People lacking food of plant origin, and people suffering chronic illness, poverty or starvation also experience deficiency diseases. HOW DOES CARBOHYDRATE DEFICIENCY OCCUR? The carbohydrates consumed by us are broken down by digestive enzymes into monosaccharides (glucose, fructose etc) and absorbed in the intestine. Once in the blood, the glucose is used for energy...

Investigation of Action of Saliva and Hydrochloric Acid in Two Carbohydrate Solutions

... Enzymes are biological catalysts that carry out thousands of chemical reactions that occur in living cells.  Most of them are proteins.  They speed up  metabolic reactions in the body but remain chemically unchanged  themselves  In the experiment, the enzyme amylase was involved.this enzyme takes part in the digestion ofcarbohydrate. digestion is the break down of large complex and insoluble food into small simple soluble molecules for the body to absorb it.  starch is a complex, the body have to find a way to break down starch, so the body produces salivary amylase in the mouth to begin the break down of starch into maltose. As the temperature rises, reacting molecules have more and more kinetic energy. This increases the chances of a successful collision and so the rate increases. There is a certain temperature at which an enzyme's catalytic activity is at its greatest . This optimal temperature is usually around human body temperature (37.5 oC) for the enzymes in human cells. Above this temperature the enzyme structure begins to break down (denature) since at higher temperatures intra- and intermolecular bonds are broken as the enzyme molecules gain even more kinetic energy.Also Enzymes have an active site. This is part of the molecule that has just the right shape and functional groups to bind to one of the reacting molecules.  The reacting molecule that binds to the enzyme is called the substrate.At high temperature,the active site is said to be denatured.Therefore,the...

The Long-Term Safety and Effectiveness of Low-Carbohydrate Diets

...As the obsession with "losing weight" continues, many human beings are turning to low-carbohydrate diets consisting of the Atkins weight loss plan. With overall book sales over 45 million, many medical doctors are beginning to ask questions about the safety of a excessive fat, excessive protein weight loss program. There have been many brief-term studies reporting that a low-carbohydrate food regimen may be powerful for weight reduction. unluckily, most research have been based on facts gathered for ninety days or less. Dieters and medical doctors alike could benefit from lengthy-time period research reporting on safety and weight reduction after a 12 months or greater. In 2003, there have been three trials reporting on the lengthy-term effectiveness and facet results of the Atkins weight loss plan. these studies accompanied obese dieters who were following the Atkins low-carbohydrate eating regimen. The effects had been then in comparison to the general low-fats weight loss program, which has been endorsed by docs for years. From the outcomes of these studies we have to determine if weight loss equals health and what should be taken into consideration perfect chance? weight reduction changed into the primary focus of maximum of the studies completed at the Atkins food regimen. Dieters are searching out effects and a lower in weight, no longer necessarily fat, is the closing aim. All 3 studies confirmed extra weight loss after six months of a low-carbohydrate...

Carbohydrate Fermentation Testing

...Carbohydrate Fermentation Testing-Task 4 Clinical Microbiology Yvonne J. Wheeless Western Governors University Fermentation Profiles S. Cerevisiae Glucose AG Mannitol- Fructose A S. Epidermidis Fructose A Mannitol- Glucose AG Incubation Time A microorganism will begin to breakdown other nutrients when there are no carbohydrates available. The by-products of protein metabolization are alkaline due to a higher pH. Fermentation tests that incubate for periods of longer than 24 hours will show the organism beginning to break down proteins after it has used up all the available sugars. When the pH changes, the color will change and generate a false negative test. Phenol Red Phenol red is sensitive to changes in pH, and this makes it helpful in fermentation testing. Acidic by-products that result when an organism uses carbohydrates to produce ATP cause a fall in pH. Phenol red turns to yellow when pH drops to 6.8 or lower. Ammonia, which is the product of peptone utilization in cellular metabolism, will cause an increase in pH due to the alkaline environment. A pink or dark red color is the end result of the pH being 7.4, which is caused by phenol red’s reaction to alkalinity. Bacterial Fermentation Capabilities DNA determines all of an organism’s characteristics. An organism’s enzymes, whether it has them or lacks enzymes, is determined by DNA codes. Ability to ferment specific carbohydrates is dependent on the enzymes that an organism has, and is......
