This is gonna be a little confusing...

There are 4 events in what is called alpine or downhill ski racing

Downhill

Super-G

GS

Slalom

So, alpine refers to skiing in general, whereas downhill can be used to refer to all skiing or only one event.

Hope this helps :)

What happens when a sarcomere shortens?

1. Arrangement of thick and thin filaments: In each sarcomere two sets of actin filaments extend partway toward the center. The myosin filaments are arranged such that they partially overlap the actin filaments. Myosin heads on each side point away from the center of the sarcomere.2. During contraction, the interaction of myosin heads with the actin filaments pulls the thin filaments toward the center of the sarcomere. The actin and myosin filaments slide past each other.3. Cross-bridges = attachement betwn myosin heads and binding sites on actin filaments.4. When a muscle cell is stimulated, myosin heads are energized by ATP. They attach to adjacent actin filaments, and tilt in a short "power stroke" toward the center of the sarcomere. Each power sroke requires an ATP. With many power strokes in rapid succession, the actin filaments are made to slide past the myosin filaments.


How much is a five hundred dollar savings bond worth that was bought in 1997?

Your bond will continue to earn interest until it is 30 yrs old. Here's how to figure it: Series EE savings bond bought betwn 5/1/1997 and 4/30/2005 will earn interest based on market yields for 5 yr treasury securities --- the rate will be 90% of the average yields on 5-yr treasury securities for the preceding 6 months. Series EE/E savings bonds issues may 1, 1997 - 5.68% interest Nov 1, 1997 - 5.59% Those are good rates and you might want to not cash them in yet. Call the Treaasury Dept at 1-877-973-8983 (toll free) and request the latest redemption values table for EE & E bonds If you redeem the bonds bought in 1997 in September 2007 - then a $500 bond is worth from $373.40 to 384.80 depending on what month in 1997 it was purchased --- the interest earned is from $123.40 to 134.80. They originally cost $250 and will continue to gain value for the as long as 30 years from purchase date.
