Random information on the term “Taxis”:

Chemotaxis (from chemo- + taxis) is the movement of an organism or entity in response to a chemical stimulus. Somatic cells, bacteria, and other single-cell or multicellular organisms direct their movements according to certain chemicals in their environment. This is important for bacteria to find food (e.g., glucose) by swimming toward the highest concentration of food molecules, or to flee from poisons (e.g., phenol). In multicellular organisms, chemotaxis is critical to early development (e.g., movement of sperm towards the egg during fertilization) and development (e.g., migration of neurons or lymphocytes) as well as in normal function and health (e.g., migration of leukocytes during injury or infection). In addition, it has been recognized that mechanisms that allow chemotaxis in animals can be subverted during cancer metastasis. The aberrant chemotaxis of leukocytes and lymphocytes also contribute to inflammatory diseases such as atherosclerosis, asthma, and arthritis. Sub-cellular components, such as the polarity patch generated by mating yeast, may also display chemotactic behavior.

Random information on the term “CABS”:

Campus Area Bus Service (CABS) is a free public transportation system at the Ohio State University’s Columbus campus. The system consists of five bus routes that connect various points of Ohio State’s campus, and the immediate off-campus area. The system connects with the Central Ohio Transit Authority’s bus routes at several points.

The system is one of the largest campus transit systems in the United States. Ridership has grown from 4 million passengers in 2003 to an estimated 5 million passengers in 2015.

Bussing has been available at Ohio State since at least 1923. At the time, there was a single 1921 Reo bus that was made out of plywood and had solid rubber tires. When it was first offered, it was primarily used to transport students between the main campus, and the agricultural campus across the Olentangy River.

By the 1960s, there were 19 buses in the fleet, and buses ran as far north as Ohio State University Airport, and as far south as the Children’s Hospital. There was both regularly scheduled service, and on-demand service available by calling the bus operator.
