Abstract
Aloe vera is known for its many health benefits. It helps in improving the appearance of skin, treat digestive problems and boost immune systems. Use of aloe vera is beneficial in many oral conditions. Due to its anti bacterial qualities it is effective in fighting the bacteria and preventing bad breath, gingivitis, stomatitis and periodontitis.

...This chapter focuses on the method of controlling juvenile mosquitoes while in life stages (larvae & pupae) which only occur in water. To safely alter our aquatic environments, even temporarily, for the purpose of controlling mosquitoes, requires a good working knowledge of both the target species and larvicides, which include commercial pesticides and natural predators. Products and techniques currently used in Florida are discussed in detail, and the benefits and risks of each are considered. Commercial pesticide information includes summaries and information provided by manufacturers. Minor differences between various formulations of the same or similar active ingredients are detailed so that the competency of each product may be compared. The old days of smothering everything with one pesticide such as waste oil are gone, and mosquito control is rapidly approaching an age of prescription applications where a competent operator will apply one or a combination of larvicides in an environmentally friendly manner under a given set of conditions. Commercial pesticide sections summarize data found in manufacturers’ current product literature and labels. Two of many additional sources of information on mosquito larvicides are: • U.S. Environmental Protection Agency HTTP://WWW.EPA.GOV/PESTICIDES/HEALTH/MOSQUITOES/LARVICIDES4MOSQUITOES.HTM • Alameda County, California Mosquito Control HTTP://WWW.MOSQUITOES.ORG/BIORAT.HTML The University of Florida published a handbook......

Insecticidal Activity of Aloe Vera

...insecticides could reduce the cost and environmental pollution. Aloe vera is a perennial plant belonging to the family of Liliaceae, of which there are about 360 species (Klein and Penneys, 1988). Taxonomists now refer to Aloe barbadensis as A. vera (Coats and Ahola, 1979). Aloe is one of the few medicinal plants that maintain its popularity for a long period of time. Since time immemorial, A. vera has been used as a traditional medicinal plant and as an ingredient in many cosmetic products; it has gained high importance for its diverse therapeutic properties. The plant, being succulent, contains 99.5% water and the remaining solid material contains over 75 different ingredients including vitamins, minerals, enzymes, sugars, anthraquinones or phenolic compounds, lignin, tannic acids, polysaccharide, glycoproteins, saponins, sterols, amino acids, and salicylic (Reynolds and Dweck, 1999). In this context, the purpose of the present study is to explore the insecticidal properties and repellent activity of A.vera leaf extract against dengue vector, Aedes aegypti, under laboratory conditions. B. Statement of the Problem The purpose of this study is to gather sufficient data in order to assess the insecticidal property and repellent activity of Aloe vera leaf extracts. This study attempts to answer the following questions: 1. Will Aloe vera leaf extract exhibit ovicidal, larvicidal, pupicidal properties? 2. Will Aloe vera leaf extract exhibit a repellent potential......

Vera Drake

...Vera Drake lives with her husband Stan and her two grown children Ethel and Sid. Vera is a domestic who cleans the house of a rich woman. She has a good heart and cheerful even though she got plenty of work to do, and a lot of people to take care of and help women in need, as she calls it. Vera has her big secrete that has no one in her family knows, and a secret that she intends to keep secret. When she says “Help Women In Need” she means to help poor pregnant women who are not willing or not be able to give birth to a child. Because abortion was not legal in England in the year 1950’s.Vera’s secret comes to an end after one of the girls she treated gets sick and the police get involved. This film does not only show how abortion works but it also tells us the story of the one who performs the abortion. Vera Drake was of pure good and it was never her intention ever to do abortion for her own benefit, but she was only thinking of how a poor pregnant woman would raise a child if they were born. This movie also comes with moral values and an ethical question to be considered like is Abortion really a murder? Did Vera commit a serious crime? Or should Vera be put in jail, if her own intention was to help hose poor pregnant women? As I finished watching this film, I tend to get sympathy with Vera, since she was such a caring and loving woman....

...Vera Wang was born into a wealthy family in New York City. She lived on the Upper East Side with her mother, the daughter of a Chinese warlord, and her father, a pharmaceutical executive. Vera’s wealthy upbringing largely influenced her view on fashion. Her mother was very stylish and would take Vera to Paris fashion shows during her childhood. Vera states that her mother, “absolutely loved fashion” and “I had a mother that was superbly chic. She made fashion this adventure for me as a young woman. She viewed fashion not as superficial but as expressive.” (Zimbalist, 2007) Vera explains that from her mother she, “got a first class education with style, and quality, and exposure to European houses, and the kind of education that sometimes you can’t even get in school.” (MOVIE) Her wealthy upbringing allowed her to attend prestigious schools, including Chapin, a private school in Manhattan. It also allowed Vera to become involved in her passion, the sport of figure skating. Vera was a competitive figure skater until the age of 20, with the dream of becoming an Olympic skater. Unfortunately however, Vera failed to qualify for the 1968 Olympic team, calling it “heartbreaking”. (MOVIE) Moving past this disappointment, Vera enrolled in Sarah Lawrence College in New York. Here she majored in Theater Studies but then later changed her major to Art History. During her time at Sarah Lawrence, Vera studied abroad in Paris at The Sorbonne, where she was further exposed to French......

The Egyptians called Aloe “the plant of immortality.” Today, the Aloe vera plant has been used for various purposes in dermatology.

Vera decided to target upper class clientele, initially offering bridal gowns by designers such as Guy Laroche, Arnold Scaasi, Christian Dior and Carolina Herrena.
