Re: MY PLAN

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!

Re: MY PLAN

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!

Re: What affects a students resilience?

I really like your topic, I think it is really really interesting. I really like this research because it's something that I think a lot of people can relate to because they may have skipped class themselves, or they have peers who have skipped class in the past. Everything that you have found I think it very true, and makes sense. I'm looking forward to your future research!

A very interesting thing to say is, it is neither nature nor nurture that shapes your personality but simply coincidence and luck. What I mean is to propose the question "Why do multiple children raised by the same parents have such drastically different personalities?" It's rather obvious to say because the social circumstances at home are different, perhaps the economic state of the family is different and so on and so forth. Just food for thought.

Re: What affects a students resilience?

I think this is a really interesting topic. Since all of us go to school, I'm sure we all wonder the same things. I think things like home life and peers can have a lot to do with it. I'm looking forward to seeing what you find in your next research!

I've really enjoyed reading both of your recent posts on this subject! I would say vitality is what motivates us. In my experience who I sit next to in a class will determine how interested I am on a topic.

Re: Inquiry Question

Anika Zak (Alumni) ·
This topic has always enthralled me and I'm very excited to see where your research will take you. The realm of dreams and the unconscious mind is one of relatively sparse scientific knowledge and much speculation. I highly recommend looking into dream dictionaries, either in print or on the web. These use symbols from dreams (ie animals, colours, objects, etc) and connotations in order to interpret the dream's meaning. Here's a link to one of the most popular online: ...

This is such a cool topic! I've always been interested in dreams, because if you think about dreams are actually super weird! For your project are you thinking about doing it more on what do our dreams mean or more the science of why people dream and what causes you to have a good dream or a bad dream. Im really excited about the research you find and the discoveries you make! Good luck: )

Re: Inquiry Question

Audrey Heath (Charles Best) ·
Thanks Moira for the comment, I want to base the project more on what dreams mean. The facts are that we already know how we have them and what chemicals are brain uses, I want to know why. I want feedback from people about how they dream and what they dream about, not searching up facts. Although I will do lots of research as backround info for my overall results.
Comment

Re: Inquiry Question

I really like this question because everybody dreams or has nightmares, even if you don't always remember them. I really like the part about what is the difference between a dream and a nightmare, because it's something that I personally just think of in black and white terms, as in dreams are good/happy and nightmares are the opposite. I wonder if it is more though, and I can't wait to see what you come up with. Good luck!

Samuel Kariuki (Tigithi) ·
Yap,clothes matters a lot in sport,for instance in short race one requires fitting outfits where's not the case in long races where loser are clothes they wear.when it comes to shoes,short racers use more of their toes hence their shoes design for that where long racers use more of their heels and their shoes also cater for that

My friend designs for lulu lemon which is a vancouver-based sports clothing company. From my experiences being there, they use a lot of different fabrics that can effect your performance. They have also given me some of their new clothing to test out and I run and give them feedback about the product. Good luck on your research!

Lighter cloth make people to become light than as they are even if they will add some weight it will be very little percentage.but there are some athletes who can not be difitted even if they wear heavy cloth, believe you me i have been participating in many races at school and i have seen many.take for example Hussein Bolt the 100m champion can even stop at the starting point for 5sec and then over lap the rest ahead of him.

Re: MY PLANE TOPIC CORRECTION

Grace Yang (Alumni-LFAS) ·
What you're interested in is called "aeronautics" and "aerodynamics," which is basically the science behind what gets the plane off the ground. My dad is a retired pilot so I've heard him talk about things here and there before. Basically, and I'm so sorry for the very simple explanation, every part of the plane is designed to create a thrust (the forward motion) and the lift (obviously the lifting motion). With these to motions working together, physics lifts the plane off the ground.

Re: BRAIN

Desi Chek (Alumni-LFAS) ·
Could you clarify what you mean by "unique?" What I think you are asking is what separates humans from other animals and do primates possess these traits or not. Charles Darwin said that "there is no fundamental difference between man and the higher mammals in their mental faculties and that all the differences are differences of degree, not of kind." The discussion of what separates humanity from animals or if there even is a separation is one that has interested many scientists. These...

It would be interested to investigate how the human mind has evolved through time, and to compare each 'stage' of the human mind to the animal mind to see if they are becoming more similar, disparate or maintaining a level of comparison

Re: How do Dreams Affect People?

Former Member ·
I found this completely fascinating to be honest. I know very little about dreams so it was great to read into them. I thought you did a really wonderful job describing the complex way dreams work in a really simple way that made sense. Also I was wondering if you'd looked into sleep paralysis? This is a phenomenon in which, after waking, you continue to dream and for moments are unable to move. I don't know much about it, but it sounds really interesting. I'm very excited to see where you...

Re: BRAIN

This is a very interesting question! I see you're discovering a lot about animals and human brains. I have a suggestion for something you can research to do with your project. You can look at early humans (homo habilis, homo sapien etc.) and look at their brains and how they are similar to us. Apes and chimpanzees are so advanced because they are a lot like humans, we did evolve from them. Anyways, your project looks great so far!

Re: How do Dreams Affect People?

LOVE THIS SUBJECT!!! I did a project on this a while ago, but I only scraped the surface of this subject. There are so many things to look into, do you have a certain focus for you project or are you just going to see how much information you can collect? Like Emma Irvine I have found sleep paralysis to be an especially interesting subject, as well as other sleeping disorders, I think it would be cool I you wanted to look into those. Very excited for your project .

Mental illness may affect sleep so much,in that someone with mental problem will tend to sleep anytime,most of the people who are mentally sick will sleep during the day and tend to be active during the day,which I guess they get to train themselves,in Kenya for instance mental people may be seen along the road at day time deep asleep and be seen active during the night which really can't figure out why.

Re: How do Dreams Affect People?

I really like this project, the part that got me thinking was the last part, the question "how does mental illness affect sleep". I decided to look into this and I found something really interesting, something Ive never thought of or even imagine, ( the main idea of butterfly effect ). Mental illness and sleep are two interconnected topics, a change in one has an effect on the other. Both of them can mutually affect one another. For example, if you don't have enough sleep, you are most...

Re: How do Dreams Affect People?

This is a very interesting project to research! If you wanted to, you could also look at the mental illnesses that have to do with sleep. There are some conditions where people under high stress have vivid nightmares about family and friends. They can be so real that the person does not want to go to sleep. It usually happens in girls. Anyways, keep up the good researching.

Re: C2 RR#6 How does this All Affect us today?

Hi Sophie! I'm not particularly interested in politics so I don't know much. From reading this post it's clear to me I should keep updated. I never heard of "alternative facts" but it sounds like it can be used dangerously by the people in charge of us. I'm attentive to what your next post has to say. Keep up the good work!

Re: How can we mitigate tribalism which is negatively impacting on Kenya?

Jackline: Is there a difference between the term "tribalism", the term "prejudice" and the term "racism?" I am particularly interested in what you think about the differences between "tribalism" and prejudice?

Re: How can we mitigate tribalism which is negatively impacting on Kenya?

Hi Jackline, I find your question to be quite profound, for there are so many different aspects you could be looking at. Perhaps you can begin by looking at the causes and the makings of tribes during the colonizations to better your understanding of their importance, then and now. Here is a link I found that discusses not only that topic but much more: http://origins.osu.edu/article...e-and-politics-kenya I hope this helps further your research, good luck!

Re: How can we mitigate tribalism which is negatively impacting on Kenya?

Hi Jackline, your inquiry question is very intriguing. I noticed that your topic is time sensitive and would differ during different periods in history. I found a website that you might like to look at. It discusses about tribalism and ethnicity. Here is the link?: http://www.africaw.com/ethnici...-in-africa-the-truth I really like that you are defining each part of your question so as to get a better understanding of the whole situation. I can't wait to read your next posts!

Re: How does bulling affect someone through their lifetime.

Hi Allan, I agree with you that most people that are bullied feel sad and start feeling inferior in society. However, there are some people that get past that stage and start getting stronger. They stop listening or they stop fighting back resulting in them feeling more powerful once the bullying stops. While this is a very small percent of the people that are bullied, it still shows that bullying can have a positive effect on the lives of some people. Here are some links that talk more...

Re: How does bulling affect someone through their lifetime.

Hey Allan! I really like how much you show how curious you are on the topic of bullying. From a workshop I once took (really the workshop was two months ago but still) I learned that bullying is an on going cycle. And that we should not refer to the person being bullied as the victim, the person bullying as the bully and the person just watching it unravel as the bystander. I learned that referring to them is such a way is labeling them and making it hard for them to change. It also s very...
