The initial observation was that the obsessed women who are pregnant are found to be inflammation reduced due to the dietary Omega-3 Fatty acid supplement.
The hypothesis is that the supplement of the Omega three, if given to the pregnant women will cause positive effects,
The study was designed in a non-sequential, double masked controlled trial was conducted for the overweight as well as in other words obese women who are pregnant. They were assigned to receive DHA plus EPA or something equivalent.
The sum of the plasma DHA plus EPA was increased by 5.8 fold in both the treated as well as the untreated women. It was also found that there was an activation of the TLR4 induced by palmitate in the adipose culture in the cells of trophoblast
Authors have found that the data analyzed have resulted that four out of eight women failed to run in the course because of their age. Also the results have concluded that the inflammation required was found successful.
The main finding of the study is that the ω-3 supplementation could be used during the pregnancy period for the reduction of inflammation. Also the findings have suggested that the systematic effect is found rather than the placental ones.

Taking the Long View on Sexism in Science
This paper is composed by a biologist, Pat Shipman in which he initially explained his experience of being victimized of sexual stereotype in which his paper on fossil animals was turned down just the base of its controversial approach.
The main hypothesis is that the women are facing in career development.
After a long discussion, she was stunned by hearing that the committee demanded to have a sleep with her and if she would reject, her PhD would not be awarded. She asked the editor to let them speak to her. In a meanwhile the editor took a long pause and after that he said that the committee didn’t demanded such thing but still he will not publish. Fortunately Harvard University published my report. Her main aim of the paper is to explain that the many women after even a decade leave their scientific researches in between and unpublished just because of these attempts.
Pat Shipman also discovered one that she is the least paid in the university as an associate professor. Her colleague congratulate her on her 20% raise when she argued on the point and explained that her point was discarded because of the reason that her husband as well paid. The writer have explained a case of Tim Hunt’s fall from Grace. In this case she explained the number of women less than the number of men in the campus. One case of a mentor want to see inside a female’s shirt is highlighted in the paper as well. This culture of discrimination is ongoing and far reaching.
The women are facing the peer’s harassment as well as the talented and well educated team of women working under the less educated man which is a terrible situation in the institution.
At the end of the paper she also explained that as long as the leadership in science is so devastating, the discrimination will be observed and people will fight against it.
