Wow these are really insightful questions! I haven't recognized many gender stereotypes in Canada mainly because I never thought about it too much. I'm excited for you to ask your mentor questions and I'm interested in the answers. Good luck with your project!
These are really good questions to be asking and things that we should be thinking about in our daily lives. It is important for us as people to recognize when we are wrongfully gender stereotyping if we wish to grow as a society and move past problems like this. I look forwards to hearing what her answers are good luck!
A great blog from you helping us understand the reasons for the rampant increase in cosmetic surgery.We look forward to see what more there is to the great problem of facial degradation which mostly affect the young generation.keep up.
Fantastic project! Some areas of plastic surgery can come down to certain racial body types being seen as more superior to others, ie the European image. For women this involves a slender yet curvaceous frame, light skin, light eyes, and other characteristics. For whatever reason this has been prioritized as being an ideal appearance, and has led to many people of colour lightening their skin, eyes, or hair to appear more caucasian. It isn't plastic surgery, but a popular trend is coloured...
I think this is a good topic Joy i think most of of them change their physical appearance because of peer pressure who drive people to do such things,example ,some change them self because they what to be like others
I also wonder why this people have to do this in order to make their face look good and younger than that of other people. But according to what I think is that they don't want to be called old. To my surprise I was watching a musician known as Usher since I was a little boy but up to now he is still the way he was if you look at his face, but he is very old, this is because of plastic surgery.
I'm interested in why you want to "reduce this cases of teenage surgery in the world." I see in your plan that you are going to later address the negative effects of plastic surgery, but you show no indication in addressing the positive effects. It does seem from a surface level to have no positive outcomes, but it's an important aspect of inquiry projects to be able to view both sides of the argument. I wonder if it would be more beneficial to view this project as being something more along...
The scheme sounds pretty amazing Paige.As you rightly put it, music is often used to set the mood in storytelling. It helps the audience get to empathize with the character. It would be interesting to see what you come up with and more importantly, how you interpret different animal traits with music. Of note would be their movement, how they communicate and anything they do for fun.
This is so cool! I'm particularly interested in the fact that you mentioned music has defined elements that actually make it sound 'moody,' 'cheerful,' etc. I wonder how those elements translate across different cultures. I heard somewhere (maybe from a music teacher?) that there was this experiment done where 'sad' music and 'happy' music and 'scary' music was played for people across a variety of cultures, and pretty much every person identified each correctly. Interestingly, some of these...
What kind of animation were you thinking of creating? (2D, 3D, stop motion?)You may want to consider the time involved. You might want to look at some books concerning body language The Definitive Book of Body Language is a pretty great read/skim if you're interested http://www.amazon.ca/The-Defin...nguage/dp/0553804723 You might also want to look into books concerning anatomical movement/physics, I can't think of any off of the top of my head but I'm sure there are plenty of resources on...
woow page its an intresting topic there,idont know if everybody is like me coz I relly love music and sometimes I wonder if all music must be sang in the name of love but idont mind music uplift my spirit.Continue wid dat spirit I give a folow up gret job
I wishing you well in you research the only thing i know about music is that it entertain people,and also it create the attitude of emerging some things.the animation you are talking about i have no idea about it, i have no otherwise but to wait how you will do it.
If you're interested in how music can influence the way we view things, it might be interesting to compose a piece about an animal that is generally quite loved by the public (bad example, but a kitty, or piglet), but try to make the person think negatively of the animal without making it humorous (example, the scary music in Jaws is quite humorous); put a slideshow of pictures of the animal in beautiful positions and angles and play the music in the background, see what the viewer/listener...
Ken: Thanks! I too find music can be very uplifting, especially when sung by a choir. Taylor: Yep, that makes sense, I'm hoping to do something similar with the animation I'd be working on with Grace. (By taking sharks and making people feel empathetic towards them using music)
Go for it Paige, you seem to have it all figured out already. Music is a very significant carrier of emotions in films, and as Schmidt said, music is a universal language across cultures. We do not really need to hear the words of the song to understand how to react to music because it operates at the emotional level. One interesting fun fact about music in films is that you are never conscious of it directly as you watch the film, unless the music score is incongruous with the visual...
This looks awesome, Bryn! Even though birds are considered terrestrial vertebrates, because they spend so much time aloft could they ever be considered aerial vertebrates? Or do you think that their habitat base being on land will keep them tied to the terrestrial category?
This is a really interesting topic and question. I was surprised by the number of species of humming birds. Do you think your project will be more research or action based? I'm excited to see the end product. Good luck!
Do you think that indigineous culture and individual identity is as important today as it was half a century ago? I would say that coorporate identity will surpass nationality at a certain point. Saying that you prefer Apple or Android can say more about you personallyt than if you were from Canada or America. As a race we are moving towards an intensely globalized culture. Do you think the sacrifice of indigenous cultures is worth the prize of this 'oneness'?
This is really interesting, and the conference that you're planning sounds great: ) When you say youth do you mean exclusively indigenous youth or youth in general? Really excited for where this project goes! Good luck: )
So far it sounds really interesting. Desi and I are willing to help you out with whatever you need. I know you haven't finished your post yet but I was wondering what you're hoping to achieve through the cultural conference? I haven't been at the Friday meetings either so it could just be me, but what is you general goal for the whole thing?
So, looking into this a tiny bit, I found the dictionary definition of 'indigenous', provided by Merriam-Webster: "Produced, growing, living, or occurring naturally in a particular region or environment." So, I suppose, technically everyone born in Canada is, in fact, indigenous to Canada. Recently, I also read a short essay by Chief Dan George (admittedly not by choice, but by Sachar's choice) based around letting go of purely First Nations culture, and integrating his native culture in...
I think the importance of learning indigenous cultures is;for example in many African cultures ,when somebody want to marry,it is significant to be aware of matters concerning dowry and other matrimonial ceremonies.
Wow.besides the fact that am not a female,it's my great wish to know how women were treated before pre colonial times.i also would like to know what the gvnment of our country have done to do away with all forms of injustices and any other mistreatments that women were subjected to before and after the colonial periods.keep up!
It might be helpful for you to determine what "feminism" is going to mean in your project, as it can take on a variety of different meanings depending on the person using it. Some people believe feminism is the equality of both genders, some believe it's making women equal to men, some believe it's rising women up above men...so it can vary. What use of the word feminism is your project based around? Or are you comparing different types of feminism throughout different times?
@taylor testini thank you for your comment.In my project I am considering or let's say my definition for feminism is making men equal to women.My mentor Ian once made me understand that men are the same as men BUT not equal to men.so feminism in my case ends up being the act of making women equal to men.
Your plan was executed with such grace Elinor! I believe by giving people an eye into what other indigenous cultures have to offer there has been a lot of understanding and respect for one another. Unfortunately I wasn't able to attend the conference but with all the information you have shared over the semester I have felt very involved with everything you have been doing. I can't wait to see where you take this project next or if you find new questions from all your new found answers!
According to my understanding the important of learning ingenious culture is to know how people live and their regular activities. In Kenya many communities used to eat Ugali which is our daily food in our life.Ugali is the maize flour mixed with water.
I'm so excited for this Juolin!! For part 3, do you have any ideas for what kind of survey or experiment you might want to do? What do you hope to accomplish with that step? How and by what standards will you be comparing it to your research? Can't wait
Thank you for commenting! and sorry for replying so late. For new I haven't make up my mind about what exactly I will be surveying or experimenting. But what I do know is I want to base all my survey or experiment on my research, on what I discover through the time. I want to take the knowledge I learn and try to apply it in real life. And that is what all the 3 step of my project is about, to prove that whether if my research could make sense in real life! I don't want my project to be an...
I like how this project is shaping up! Splitting people into age groups is clever as well. Be careful about different variables though. You're working with the brain, so it might be practical to recognize things that could hurt your research. I'm thinking of things like differences in people (whether drastic disabilities or the variations from person to person), the vagueness of the term 'learning,' or even something like how the different places humans live naturally adjust their nutrient...
Desi, I feel like this project could somehow related to the Kenya agriculture project you just finished. I think it will be very inserting if you can link them together a little bit. Maybe digging into how the food was grow or the environment it was planted, because I do believe it will make a big difference in nutrition between the same food that are grown in different circumstances. I think this is such an interesting project! Good luck
Desi,you have reminded me on something i was taught by my primary teacher on how a child just fed on porridge and potatoes turns out to be very poor in his or her performance, i also tend to believe so...
