15 DAYS OF DS9
DAY 14: Something you wanted to see more of
Since I am an indecisive person, four things I wanted more:
1. More Keiko. Especially, more Keiko with storylines of her own, more Keiko being a botanist in Bajor and having friends and hanging out with the girls of DS9. More Keiko.
2. More Keevan, because besides he being the prettiest Vorta, I think that a Vorta without the feeling of the loyalty to the Founders could have been explored much better than he was.
3. More Garak, because I can never get enough of him.
4. More Kasidy Yates, because she was awesome and just like Keiko, I wanted more adventures of her in her own.

I can’t escape doing panels
Wonder what give your heart that kick to thump? That thump is actually from an electrical system that works within the heart! This electrical system is what keeps the heart pumping blood throughout the body to achieve perfusion.
SA-> Sinoatrial node (also known as the sinus node.)
AV-> Atrioventricular node
Normal impulses begin in the sinus node. The impulses travel across both atria causing them to contract which pushes the blood out of the atrium. From here the impulses cross a bridge of special electrical tissue between the atria and ventricles called the atrioventricular node. The signal here is slowed for about one to two tenths of a second to allow blood to pass from the valve to the ventricles. The impulses then exit the AV node and spread throughout both ventricles causing them to constrict, pushing blood into the arteries.
Cardiac muscle cells have a characteristic called automaticity which isn’t found in any other type of muscle cells. Automaticity allows a cardiac muscle cell to contract spontaneously without a stimulus from a nerve source. Meaning if no impulse arrives from the SA node to the rest of the cells, they will create their own impulses stimulating the contraction of the heart. They are not as affective and will be at a generally slower rate.
*This is due to the Anatomic Nervous System (Click Here to learn more about the anatomic nervous system).
cosmictuesdays asked: What I find so fascinating about Dukat is his total inability for redemption - from the start, what he's done keeps him from achieving that state - and, along with that, the gradual removal of possibilities of atonement. It's fascinating to watch him fall in such slow motion.
Oh, my. That’s very well written, and also very true.
He chooses to reject any chances at atonement, doesn’t he. Of course, he doesn’t believe he has anything to atone for. I’m sure he doesn’t even realize he let anything slip. He did what seemed the best thing at the time, and naturally the best thing for Skrain Dukat is the best thing for Cardassia and everyone else in the universe. Anyone who disagrees is flat-out wrong, and he’s not angry, he’s just disappointed.
