Housman & Irwin’s argument in this poem regards human bones as being immortal, which is contrary to the obvious notion. He skillfully states diverse aspects, for instance, mind and soul with a clear elaboration meant to convince his readers to perceive what he deems is immortal.
Besides, he also utilizes pessimism to draw his audience to accept his perception (Housman & Irwin 60). This is evident from his expertise of employing high cliché introduction then skillfully overturns the entire argument thus managing to entangle the reader’s mind (Housman & Irwin 59). Therefore, this leaves one doubting and questioning the already known notion about immortality. His vivid elaboration coupled with sheer comparison with diverse aspects, which comprises human existence aids him to grasp reader’s attention to extend of some believing him. According to him, bones bear immortality that has no comparison with even former esteemed life’s immortal aspects. He states, “Of dying flesh and dying soul (16)” where according to him the latter’s (soul) existence is

Turritopsis nutricula (Immortal jellyfish)
Phylogeny or the evolutionary relationships of Turritopsis nutricula is a subject that requires further research (Schuchert 315-369). The basic scientific classification is as follows:
Kingdom – Animalia
Phylum – Cnidaria
These cells became celebrities in the world of medical research and have given success to many scientists and science projects. What is even more worrying is that the name of the contributor of the cells was changed, and this as Jeffery (2009) says, is a thing that needs to be changed in the medical research field.
Due to the fact that her cells were readily grown in the laboratory, the Tuskegee Institute began a dedicated lab that specialized in growing, transferring, analyzing, and transmitting the tissue around the nation. For approximately 10 dollars, interested scientists could obtain samples of the cells to perform their own study.
Conversely, the chapter tracks the story of how the medical professionals who had recently discovered the contamination problem that has been related in the prior summary paper that was submitted could be solved. The medical researchers decided the best means to solve the contamination issue would be to obtain genetic markers from Henrietta Lack’s family as a means of specifically determining which cells were contaminated and which cells were not.
It is an exact depiction of the emotional turmoil faced by Henrietta's family, during their journey to find about Henrietta's immortal cancer cells, named as HeLa cells, used for research without the patient or family’s knowledge or consent . These cells because of its rare kind were a great scientific discovery and still hold importance in scientific research.
Rebecca Skloot in her book, the Immortal life of Henrietta Lacks delves into the truth behind HeLa cells and highlights several ethical issues that gently surface. Henrietta lacks cancer cells were abnormal in nature. Lack’s doctor, Dr.Gey noticed that the cells grew exponentially in a short span of time, which was the same rate at which they were growing and spreading in Henrietta’s body.
Of that number, an estimated 1,673 gave birth to children out of wedlock. These statistics indicate that in Douglas County, approximately 234 out of every 1,000 unmarried teens between the ages of 14-17 became unwed mothers. Furthermore, the Pregnancy Resource Center of Douglas County reports, that in 2003, 1,150 pregnancy tests were administered by their organization.
This is in respect to poetic devices such as consonance, alliteration, assonance and iambic pentameter that help the reader in making different interpretations (Christensen 134).
There are several differences between
