InterphaseThe cell appears a non-dividing cell. The chromosomes appear as threadlike structures. Prophase
Chromosomes become visible as they contract, and shrink. Centrioles appear at opposite sides of the nucleus. Spindle fibres start to form. The chromosomes become shorter and fatter. It consists of 2 chromatids joined at the centromere. Nucleolus disappear. Prophase ends with the breakdown of nuclear membrane. Metaphase
Chromosomes arrange themselves on the equator of the spindle. Anaphase
Chromatids separate at the centromere and migrate to opposite poles of the cell, the centromeres leading. Telophase
Chromosomes reach their destination. The cell starts to constrict across the middle. Nuclear membrane and nucleolus are reformed in each daughter cell. The spindle disappears. Chromosomes eventually regain their threadlike form and the cells return to resting condition (interphase).The daughter cells have the same chromosome constitution as the original parent cell.
Who hasn't heard of the 'Big Bad Wolf 'which poses as Red Riding Hood's grandmother or 'Big Mac', the latter being one of McDonald's signature products. It probably does not need a big lettuce to make the Big Mac, and if it does, there probably would not be a price hike!
One day, in Taiping Mall, I just asked if my little grandnephew if he wanted to watch a movie. He was game for it and so was his sister. Since most of the movies then were adult fare, I picked for them Goosebumps 2: Haunted Halloween, thinking it was a fun animated movie. The Ari Sandel directed movie about two young boys who accidentally brings Slappy the Dummy to life and releases monsters, demons and creatures in their little town of Wardenclyffe, New York was an entertaining watch but throughout the movie, I was rather worried if the children could take it. Slappy does look sinister enough to send chills down their little spines and there were times when they jumped in their seats. Frankly, I don't recommend little children for the movie and was surprised that it is supposed to be based on a children book - R. L. Stine's children's horror book series. Having been fed fairy tales as a kid, I wonder since when were horror books written for children...
