hi everyone, First before I explain what I am researching today I will be explaining why the question here is a bit different. This is because my old version of this question was : What is the process of producing products? this question didn't work because it is a question that would result in me listing facts it wasn't and inquiry question. today I am looking at the best ways factories produce the products, and the best factories for working conditions for the people that work In them.Read More...

How do cosmetics effect us?

Hello everybody for this week’s research I will be diving into the world of mascara and lip products. There can be a lot of dangers in these two because they both must be so long lasting. So, I will see what might be in these products that could damage us. First, I will look at mascara. One of these dangerous products are called carbon black it is found in eyeliner and mascaras.

In this first research I wanted to start with something that is a base. I am going to look at liquid and powder foundation and see what bad chemicals are in these two products. also a lot of these products say that they are anti aging so I am going to see if this is true and there is some magical ingredient that makes time turn back and your skin look flawless. Both of these products people use daily and I want to see if they are really safe for theses people including me. liquid foundation:...Read More...

I am going to look at how swim where looked from 1920 to 2017. In the 1920s it was way more conservative they would cover everything that could be seen long shorts and high necklines which are not the case today. Today we were bikinis that show everything. Or one pieces that are even worse. We show off all of our assets and anything that we think is beautiful. Our bathing suits are made of spandex so that they stretch and fit every curve of our body. Back then bathing suits were made of wool...Read More...

My question is-how has society effected fashion” This week i am looking at- the views of women and men in 1960. By looking at the gender roles at this time it can help me further understand how these views affected how women and men dressed and how that has drastically changed leading up to today. So i will be looking at the views of women and men in the 1960s. For men they were seen as the ones that get money while the women stay at home and just clean the house and take care of the kids.Read More...

I will be looking at , the way average clothes looked from 1960 to now 2017 and those differences. Fashion in the 1960s compared to now is very different ,we have crop tops and tiny shorts when they had unisex jeans. Mod refuses to modern clothes that come from the 1960s in London. These fashions quickly spread to Canada and the us. All of this was based around London's thriving pop music art and fashion sense, mod fashion was based all around innovation and new. Mod fashion was a 1 up from...Read More...

should beauty be skin deep?

Ellen Mee (charles best)
Hi, this week i will be talking about health problems that branch off of the bad influences in beauty and the way it is perceived. Self esteem, depression and an altered self image. Self esteem leads to depression because it is that voice in your head that constantly tells you you're not good enough. Change your hair, fix your makeup, you're too fat, you're too stupid. All things that people will say about themselves. Women wrote more than 5 million negative tweets in 2014, what are we doing...Read More...

Hi everyone this week I will be looking at what effect the media's view of beauty has on people. People seem to base everything off of the way that models look like in magazines or on Instagram, Facebook or google. But these models 9 out of 10 times are photo shopped to look too perfect so that you will buy there products and they will make more money off of you. We also fall for the celebrity endorsement trick that so many brands use and we buy there product because some famous person says...Read More...

should beauty be skin deep?

Ellen Mee (charles best)
Hi everyone, This week I am going to be looking at how much money does the beauty industry make on all of us trying to be perfect. a lot of our money seems to be spent on facial procedures or masks for our faces. I think that this is because the face is the thing that is seen the most and the thing that you talk with. There are those few women that don’t spend money on makeup but very few. The beauty industry raised 8% in 2012 from 1.8 billion dollars. And if it isn't already bad that they...Read More...

This week i will be looking at what sociaty sees as true beauty to be. When you ask anyone they will say that beauty is on the outside but when you really investigate you see that attraction really begins with the way that a person looks so physical attraction. Women have been taught to compare themselves to everyone around them through media and other sources or the photo shopped people on magazines. We need to love ourselves for who we are. And most people would argue they do but do they...Read More...

I made a survey and this round will be based off of the information that I have gathered from that. even though I am using this information now if you haven't already it would really help if you could go and take the survey as I will be referring back to it during the project. through the survey I found that a lot of people said that it was internal which is what most of us say. but a few people...Read More...

For this project I am going to be looking at what true beauty really is? I am excited to do this because it ties in with bullying which I chose to talk about in my introduction.

For the semester I will be looking at: -what other people think of this ... and some extra bits of information(I have made a survey ..if you have...Read More...

This week i will be talking about the history of bullying. Bullying has been a bad thing for decades but back in the 18th century there was bullying but people didn’t really understand it. What is violence now may not have been back then. But after the numerous studies and tests and reports we have gotten to the point now where we know what bullying is. But when they didn’t know what bullying is they would they would just label it as growing up. But in 1862 a well known newspaper said the...Read More...

Today i am going to look into what jobs people get in later life when they have been bullied. I have read through some stories and research and it shows that it really depends on what kind of person it is if that person is easily scarred it will affect their career. It shows that some are really successful when others can not hold a job at all. The victims also a lot of time will be bullies in the workplace. It is very difficult to find much on what people's jobs are in later life but there...Read More...

Hi guys today I am answering the question: Can there be a positive outcome from bullying? Even though bullying is a bad thing it is also in some ways a good thing as well. People say that the good thing about this is usually in the outcome of bullying some people come out of bullying week and scared but some come out stronger and better. Even though that that would be great, it has never been proven that people who have been bullied are stronger . But studies show that most people who have...Read More...

Hello again, today I will be looking at the psychology in bullying. Bullying is something that stem from what happened to the bully in their early life, most bullies were either bullied in their younger lives or they feel insecure about themselves. If they were bullied when they were younger they probably think that it is ok to hurt people because that is what they grew up with. Also they most likely didn’t have many friends, but people become friends with them even though they hurt people...Read More...
