Ehhhh most colleges I looked at said they had absurdly high employment rates on their web pages and questionaires as well as most representatives.
British columbia institute of tech, university of fairbanks, University of Juneau, the art institute of Vancouver, Devry washington, and a couple of colleges whose names who I've forgotten all told me they had employment rates of 90-99% within 6 months of graduation but I find this doubtful because it doesn't seem like they would be paying attention to 99% or really even like 10% of their students 6 months after graduation.

Depends on the objective, if you wanna make lots of money and aren't afraid of being a spineless asshole business is the most important, if you want to make a difference and try to make the world a better place through blood, sweat and tears science is the most important.

User avatar #966 - martycamp (03/05/2014) [-]
Cancer cells also need to be able to spread around the body, so they have to "let go" - they lose their ability to adhere to other cells. They also need to be able to survive the shear forces of the blood while they're spreading - lung cells, for example, aren't designed to survive circulating in blood, and cancer cells need to gain this ability. And then, while they're circulating, they need to regain the ability to stick to other cells. Then, when they're at a new location, they do the same thing all over again. It's a continuous gain and loss of mutations. Something I forgot to mention was that they need to lose the signal for apoptosis, which is programmed cell death (or cell suicide). Normally, if cells are dodgy, the kill themselves. Cancers don't. So yes, it's more complicated than just p53 .

As for cancer cells dividing faster than healthy cells, that's a common misconception. They go through the cell cycle at the same speed as other cells. It's just that they're doing it constantly. They don't have the checkpoints to tell them to stop. If you look at cancer cells down a microscope, they're weird shapes and sizes, and that's due to not having the G1 checkpoint. But basically, cancers are considered fast growing because they're always dividing.

User avatar #964 - moolfle (03/05/2014) [-]
That makes more sense, thanks. Also, is cancer as simple as a mutation that stops p53 (or something) so the cell can't check for faults and it just divides a lot? And why do cancers divide faster than healthy cells?
#967 - martycamp has deleted their comment.
User avatar #965 - martycamp (03/05/2014) [-]
Trust me, there's nothing simple about cancer. You're right in saying that p53 is involved - almost all cancers have p53 mutated, and I'll come back to that in a bit - but cancers have to have a ridiculous number of mutations in order for it to work. And to add to the complexity, different cancers have (some) different mutations. I don't know if you've heard of BRCA1, but that's a major gene in breast cancers.

Ok, so. Cancer is a disease of the cell cycle. The cell cycle is very tightly controlled. Our cells don't need to divide all the time, so our cells need to be able to know when it's appropriate to divide. And if you know about the cell cycle, you'll know about the different stages. Interphase is the important bit when it comes to cancer, because that's where all the checkpoints are. Interphase is split into, G1 (G for Growth), S (synthesis) and G2 (growth 2). After each of these stages, the cell asks "can I move on to the next stage?" G1 checkpoint basically says "Am I big enough?" S phase is where DNA is replicated, and the S checkpoint asks "did I make any mistakes when I replicated the DNA?" and the G2 checkpoint is "is it still ok to divide?" If these checkpoints aren't there, that's what causes uncontrolled cell growth. But that's only ONE aspect of cancer. The cells also need to activate otherwise inactive sections of DNA - they need to produce their own growth signal, so they keep growing. Healthy cells stop replicating when they bump into other cells - cancer cells lose this self-control, and actively invade other tissues. They also need to be able to trigger angiogenesis - make blood vessels grow towards them. They do this by releasing a growth factor that tricks the body into thinking it should grow a capillary there (cancer cells have a massive oxygen demand. The inside of tumours always have necrosis - dead cells that starved from lack of oxygen).
