How are different sports beneficial/detrimental to certain body types? Hi everyone, I have been looking into many aspects of different sports, specifically their athletes, and focusing on body stereotypes. Last week, I went into a bit of a side topic: injuries and physiotherapy. Today's post will also be a side topic, building on last week's. I will focus on dietary aspects of this research. This means the diets of professional athletes vs those that aren't professional, and compare the...Read More...

SPORTS BODY STANDARDS

Juliana Nunes (Charles Best)
"How are different sports beneficial/detrimental to certain body types?" For this round of research, I will be referring to the previous one and building on the concepts for which I have already established basic information (history, requisites, etc). Now that you all have an idea of what each activity is like, I am going to be focusing on the athlete's body for the three sports. I will compare the ideal body type to the unideal, and state whether the sport is beneficial or detrimental to...Read More...

Hey guys, This will be my first round of research for this cycle and this school year, so I am really looking forward to share with you all of my ideas! Firstly, as mentioned in my project plan, I will be looking into three different sports. I want to state some information on each sport to give you all an idea of what it is, how you play it, the history, and what is required from each person physically and emotionally who plays it (at a higher rank). Then I will talk about the...Read More...

Project Plan C5

Juliana Nunes (Charles Best)
"How are different sports beneficial/detrimental to certain body types?" For this cycle, I will be looking into something very different than what I have before. I have talked about genetics, animals, school, etc and I am very excited to analyze sports as I am very fascinated by them and their impacts on our bodies. So, I will be dividing this project plan essentially into four posts that I will be publishing every second week: WEEK 1: Introduction -This post will be more in-depth so I want...Read More...

GENETIC DISORDERS 1

Juliana Nunes (Charles Best)
Hey guys! The project I am now starting is very different from the previous cycles where I have looked into education, animal abuse, and the meaning of mankind. Since I am very interested in sciences, I wanted to look into an idea pertaining the subject of science. Genetics is something I am very curious and fascinated about, so I decided to start in that general area. So, after a bit more of research, I decided on the inquiry, "What are genetic disorders and how can they be...Read More...

Hey guys! i'm starting a new inquiry and this time, focusing on psychology and science. Here's my inquiry: What are genetic disorders and how can they be beneficial/harmful to those who have them? 1.For the first week of research, I don't want to necessarily dive into the question right away. I want to give some perspective and information on the cells of humans, the cell cycle, etc etc which some people might not know about yet. These are the aspects i want to touch on: -Introduction on...Read More...

Hello everyone! What are the controversial aspects of animal abuse and veterinary care? This week's research will be my last, so I am going to end off on a happier note. As I said in my last post, I will talk about some different veterinary organizations and I will compare them and give you my opinion on which one is the best (which may help you if you are looking to adopt or donate). Then I want to talk a bit about the difference between adopting and buying from a breeder and those pet...Read More...

Hello everyone! Last week I started off with some simple information on the nature vs nurture debate. This week, I want to try to go more in-depth. Here is a short definition of this debate in case anyone does not know: "One of the oldest arguments in the history of psychology is the Nature vs Nurture debate . Each of these sides have good points that it's really hard to decide whether a person's development is predisposed in his DNA, or a majority of it is influenced by this life...Read More...

Hi everyone, Thank you for all the helpful comments on my last post! Most of them suggested that I took the nature vs nurture debate concept as another path to my research, so I decided to take the challenge. The nature vs nurture debate is basically a concept in psychology in which people try to figure out if your characteristics were inherited or acquired. This means, are these characteristics passed on from generation to generation or have we learned these things? (1) (2) There are...Read More...

Hello everyone, (My inquiry: IS MANKIND GOOD OR EVIL? ) For my last research round this week, ironically, I will be starting from the beginning. When I say beginning I mean birth. I will be asking, are we good or evil from birth? As a baby, would we be considered selfish? Do we always have the instinct of taking things from others, of always wanting to have more, of not wanting to share? Why? Can we change this as we grow? I will also answer a question I received on my last post: are people...Read More...

Danger of a Single Story

Juliana Nunes (Charles Best)
Hello again! Today I am going to be answering two questions on the video 'Danger of a Single Story'. I will be talking about how reading and commenting on someone else's post helped me learn about them, and if I broke down any stereotypes throughout this course. So for the first question, how has reading and commenting on someone else's post help you learn more about them? Well, first of all, I learn about their interests. For the most part, people write about what they are passionate about,...Read More...

Before starting, here is my inquiry question once again, " In what ways could we improve schools to benefit teachers, students, and staff, and to enhance the learning of the students?" This week, I will start off with the first step of my project plan: researching about other schools (whom have more resources than we do), and in what ways we could adapt by learning from them.
