would it not be a good idea to at least have an advisory (say, English 51A), given

Adipose tissue is similar to areolar tissue in structure and
function but its nutrient-storing ability is much greater.
Consequently, adipocytes, commonly called adipose or fat
cells, predominate and account for 90% of this tissue’s
mass. The matrix is scanty and the cells are packed closely
together, giving a chicken wire appearance to the tissue. A
glistening oil droplet ( almost pure triglyceride) occupies
most of a fat cell’s volume and displaces the nucleus to one
side so that only a thin rim of surrounding cytoplasm is seen.
Mature adipocytes are among the largest cells in the body as
they take up or release fat, they become plumper or more
wrinkled looking, respectively.

Because the driving force for diffusion is the kinetic energy of the molecules themselves, the speed of diffusion is influenced
by molecular size, the smaller the faster, and by temperature, the warmer the faster. In a close container, diffusion eventually
produces a uniform mixture of molecules.

The intestinal glands normally secrete 1 to 2 L of intestinal juice
daily. The major stimulus for its production is distension or
irritation of the intestinal mucosa by hypertonic or acidic chime.
Normally, intestinal juice is slightly alkaline (7.4-7.8), and
isotonic with blood plasma. Intestinal juice is largely water but it
also contains some mucus, which is secreted both by the
duodenal glands and by goblet cells of the mucosa. Intestinal
juice is enzyme-poor because intestinal enzymes are limited to
bound enzymes of the brush border.

Filtration is the process by which water and solutes pass
through a membrane (such as a dialysis membrane)                                            from
an area or higher hydrostatic (fluid) pressure into an                                      area
of lower hydrostatic pressure. Like diffusion, it is a
passive process. For example, fluids and solutes filter                                     out
of the capillaries in the kidneys into the kidney tubules
because blood pressure in the capillaries is greater than                                   fluid
pressure in the tubules. Filtration is not a selective
process. The amount of filtrate- fluids and solutes-
formed depends almost entirely on the pressure gradient                                     (the
difference in pressure on the two sides of the
membrane) and on the size of the membrane pores.

Air generally passes into the respiratory tract through
external nares (nostrils), and enters the nasal cavity
(divided by the nasal septum). It then flows
posteriorly over three pairs of lobelike structures, the
inferior, superior, and middle nasal conchae, which
increase the air turbulence. As the air passes through                                    the
nasal cavity, it is also warmed, moistened, and                                           filtered
by the nasal mucosa. The air that flows directly
beneath the superior part of the nasal cavity may
chemically stimulate the olfactory receptors located                                      in the
mucosa of that region. The nasal cavity is surrounded                                     by the
paranasal sinuses in the frontal, sphenoid, ethmoid,                                      and
maxillary bones. These sinuses, named for the bones                                       in
which they are located act as resonance chambers in
speech. Their mucosae, like that of the nasal cavity                                      warm
and moisten the incoming air.

Even a casual observation of the bones will reveal
that bone surfaces are not featureless smooth areas
but are scarred with an array of bumps, holes, and
ridges. These bone markings reveal where bones form
joints, with other bones, where muscles, tendons, and
ligaments were attached, and where blood vessels and
nerves passed. Bone markings fall into two categories:
projections, or processes that grow out from the bone and
serve as sites of muscle attachment or help form joints;
and depressions or cavities, indentations or openings in
the bone that often serve as conduits for nerves and blood
