Re: PROJECT: COMMUNICATION IN ANIMALS

Gloria Serianae (Loise) ·
I think that animals communicate by using a variety of signs like sounds or movement. such signing are considered complex enough to be called form of language as its different from humans because humans produce entirely new combination of words. its an interesting topic even I didn't knew about that....cant wait to check on your next post...

Re: PROJECT: COMMUNICATION IN ANIMALS

This is quite an interesting inquiry topic and I really like the direction your project is taking and the research that you are putting up. From all the means of communication that you have worked on since you started this project, which one do you think is the most superior? which one is the most common? Is there a relationship in the mechanisms of communication within animals of close taxonomic relationship? It would be really interesting if you tried and looked into some of those...

Good job in doing this research,you have so put across and well displayed your research.Is there a chance genetics can be connected with the ways animals communicate?Thanks for inquiring on this I have learnt a lot

This is really interesting because their are so many different animals that you can look into. You could also look into the opposite, why animals that have a mouth don't use it? In animals it isn't really the mouth that makes the sound, but the vocal cords. Do different animals vocal cords work differently. Can't wait to see what else you find. Good Luck!

Re: Hive Mind Update 14 (Challenges)

The coffins look less pop-can + straw and more ├╝ber spacey modern death trap canister, which is good. It's interesting how the film process hasn't been nearly as difficult for you as the managing and coordinating of people. I would imagine that this film is actually more difficult to produce than a studio-run professional animation, as you are totally dependent on volunteers. Even though a feature-length involves far more people, the production team is solely devoted to making the film and...

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!
Comment

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!

according to me many teenagers opt to change their appearance is because of this issue of LOVE. Can you please do a research of the same. I am looking forward for your reply of the same.

Paige Hunter (LFAS-Alumni) ·
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 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.
Comment

Re: COSMETIC 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...

Welcome to Butterfly Effect, and thanks for joining! I'm a new member as well. I'm very interested in psychology, criminology, as well as law. I'm currently researching about law enforcement as well as other aspects of the enforcement part. If possible I'd like to use your expertise to learn more and maybe we can start a chat!

Re: Sharing Indigenous Culture

Flora Xia (Alumni-LFAS) ·
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'?

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?

Re: Sharing Indigenous Culture

Bryn Hutchinson (Alumni) ·
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.

I like that you changed the reason for the main character's survival to not be strictly a chance machinery malfunction but a conscious decision, which gives the project a more interesting lead. One thing though: Why do the scientists/leaders of the extra-terrestrial colonization choose not to terraform the planet of choice? I know that it makes for more unique character designs, but would it not make less work to alter a planet once rather than genetically alter the entirety of humanity? Try...

Re: Cultural Exchange Project Plan

Really cool! I can see this project going really far, Anika. Wade Davis is a great resource as well. I love his work, and I'm sure you'll be able to get a lot out of what he does before the end of your project. In your inquiry question, I'm a little bit confused about the use of the word "amassing?" Do you mean that your question is applying to the continuation of the spread of humans? Or something else? It may be worth considering using a different word to portray your meaning. But then...

Re: Grant Application

Flora Xia (Alumni-LFAS) ·
Well in my mind at least, terraforming the new planet would take more time. The journey from Earth to this new planet would take light years. During this period, the humans that are on board the ship are in a form of cryo-sleep/ metamorphosis and they emerge on the new planet as a new species. It saves time and resources in the sense that it is a 1 time thing. To change the entire ecosystem of a planet would not only take a lot of time it would also expend a lot of energy.

I think the importance of cultural exchange is for example Europeans enjoy watching African's culture, so it makes others happy as it is interesting watching others dancing or any other type of their culture.

Re: Cultural Exchange Project Plan

Audrey Heath (Charles Best) ·
I think the idea of cultural exchange is just so awesome. We might learn about something in school about how another culture acts. Until you experience this for yourself you won't really understand the importance of traditions. You don't know the true meaning of what they do, whether it is a dance they perform at weddings or anything else which I can't explain because I don't know about other cultures, as much as I hope. I can't wait to see your research and what you find out about this topic.

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?

Re: Evolution Project Continued

Good work! I really like the approach you took to this project before even starting research. Asking people's opinions can be a great way to build up some perspective before starting. I feel like there are lots of helpful guiding points that can be drawn from the conversations you had. For instance, natural selection was mentioned, as was continental drift, and selective pressure ("Each group of organisms adapted to different set of environmental conditions including man"). One question...

My fellow Allan i can agree with your mum because as today we follow the biblical creation theory.the only thing that make us not to believe the biblical creation theory is that there are other people who are trying to kill it,and i promise you that they will not succeed in this compaighn.We only learn that a man evolved up to where he is now but it is not true.truly if a man realy evolved would he now look like the way he is?.

Re: Project plan

Banice Mwangi (Loise) ·
@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.

Re: Evolution Project Continued

Fadhili Katana (Alumni) ·
The evolution process to my opinion i think that the historians wanted us as students to follow their culture or they want us to have something to learn in schools so as we can make our life better in future.according to where i grew there was nothing like evolution the only first place to hear about it was school indeed in class eight . so in conclusion i dont think we evolve up to where we are now this is only rumors .

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!

Re: Sharing Indigenous Culture

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.

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...

Re: Project Plan Cycle 1.0

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...
