Allegories are used for teaching or explaining ideas, moral principles, etc.5. Etymology: a description of one thing under the image of another; from allos,, "other" plus agoreuein, "to speak openly in an assembly" from agora, "marketplace, place of assembly".
2. The process of becoming sensitive to an allergen.
2. Etymology: from about 1911, from German Allergie, coined in 1906 by Clemens E. von Pirquet (1874-1929), Austrian pediatrician, which came from Greek allos, "other, different, strange" + ergon, "activity".
The allergic reaction is misguided in that these foreign substances are usually harmless. The substances that trigger allergy are called allergen. Examples include pollens, dust mite, molds, danders, and certain foods. People prone to allergies are said to be allergic or atopic.
Although allergies can develop at any age, the risk of developing allergies is genetic. It is related to one's family history of allergy. If neither parent is allergic, the chance for allergies is about 15 percent. If one parent is allergic, the risk increases to 30 percent and if both are allergic, the risk is greater than 60 percent.
Hay fever (allergic rhinitis) is the most common of the allergic diseases and refers to seasonal nasal symptoms that are due to pollens. Year round or perennial allergic rhinitis is usually due to indoor allergens, such as dust mites or molds.
Symptoms result from the inflammation of the tissues that line the inside of the nose (mucus lining or membranes) after allergens are inhaled. Adjacent areas, such as the ears, sinuses, and throat can also be involved.
Chemically, albumin is soluble in water, precipitated by acid, and coagulated by heat.
Be aware that albumin is spelled with an "i" while "albumen" is spelled with an "e", which is the white of an egg. Albus in Latin refers to "white".

"Another allobiosphere has been discovered at the bottom of the seas where hot springs come up from that part of the Earth that is deep below the surface or on the sea floor where hot springs hav animals that have independence from green plants but that depend on bacteria that utilize the energy of chemicals from the hot springs."
"Ocean depths are the most extensive and permanent example of the allobiosphere where great areas of cold and regions where there is no light and so there is no active plant life; however, explorers of the depths of the ocean have discovered various animals; such as, worms, prawn-like creatures, and many types of fish that live in these locations."
"The ecologist G. Evelyn Hutchinson coined the term allobiosphere for these environments, where plant life and its photosynthesis are replaced by environmental extremes of darkness, heat, or cold, but where life continues, life that depends for nourishment from materials that come from other places."
