Re: THE GALAXY

Lucy Muturi (Loise) ·
I really like your topic of study.it really is true that there might be life in some galaxies but yet you need to expound more on the type of life that you really expect.is it life that supports human life or plant life. I think if you also look at the possible outcomes of the life in these galaxies you might also know the duration in which one can survive in those galaxies. for instance the US government is trying to formulate a way of settling their growing population by finding means such...

Re: THE GALAXY

That is one of the most controversial questions in the field of science and especially astronomy and astrobiology. Scientists have struggled with this question for a long time but haven't yet found the answer yet. When delving into such a question it is important first to lay out and expound on all your questions, for example 'is there life in other galaxies apart from the milky way?'. For this question, I think it is important to first know what kind of life we are expecting to find, is it...

Re: Back To Basics: Motivation and Sustainability

Wow, your post is truly inspiring and actually makes me think about what us humans can do to make a huge difference one day. Do you think it's possible for humans to change their habits and eventually adapt to these new systems? Also, I don't know if you've seen it, but I found this cool video about a solar powered oven. http://video.nationalgeographi.../video/solar-cooking good luck with your future posts

Paige: This was a concept learned by humans after the destruction of the Earth. Adaptation to a perfectly functioning society felt like a better choice for the fate of humanity. Desi: Thank you! I think some brief backstories will be explained but I don't want all of this film to be backstory so there will probably only be enough information in the film for the audience to grasp the general concept.

Re: Hive Mind

Paige Hunter (LFAS-Alumni) ·
Interesting how instead of modifying the new planet to suit their needs, the humans modify themselves to suit the planet. Would this be because of a lesson learned by the human race after the destruction of Earth, or was that just something that happened to fit into the plot/concept better?

Desi Chek (Alumni-LFAS) ·
Wow! this is very impressive and very well thought out, well done! I really love the theme of rebirth as well as the discussion of collectivism vs individualism. Are you planning to explain the whole end of earth and evolution of humanity thing in your short film? Or are you planning to just introduce this new race of wasp-human hybrids on their new planet from the start?

I find this analysis of the book to be fascinating, and i believe i would like to read this book now. It is very interesting that the book was able to influence the language in real life, and to give birth to new inventions e.g. the water bed. i also find it interesting in the way the author portrayed spirituality and religion. Excellent research, keep up the good work!

Re: RR6 : How do all forms of Art act as a social change agent?

Very interesting! I like this new formate that you are doing I would definitely love to read this book. I feel that, with the way you describe the coming of age themes in this book that it gives something more to the genre than the generic teenage story, often times we forget that just because we're grown-ups doesn't mean we've grown up. I kind of wished you elaborated a bit more on your points. It would of been a great opportunity to source/reference a 1960's article the book. Overall...

Hey Nicole I like the new format you are doing with your post. This book seems really fascinating to me because it is about space and stuff. What I was curious about this book is was it ever banned? Overall I really like all of your posts because they help me learn about books and the power they have over society. I can not wait to read more Good luck. Aiswarya

Re: Research Week #3 Re: How does the meat production really impact the environment?

I like the direction you're taking with your research and how you address it from multiple angles. For many the answer is to simply stop eating meat altogether, but such a drastic change do not bode well with most people. It will be interesting to see how people will have to change their eating habits in the coming decades as our food supply gradually decreases and the environment deteriorates. If you haven't already I'd recommend watching the documentary Food Inc. While it doesn't focus...

Re: Research Week #3 Re: How does the meat production really impact the environment?

Hi Jim, The fact that you are approaching your inquiry question from multiple angles is really smart. Your research is very logical and I agree with the opinion you have stated on your subject. As a vegetarian, I recognize the impact that farming livestock has on the environment. Maybe in your next round of research, you can do a comparison between farming fruits/vegetables and meat, and compare the environmental impacts and what is used to produce them. Hope this helps!

Hey Agnes! This is some great research! With our changing climate as well as the increase in global population, fresh water has become much more valuable. I didn't really know the potential that lies in managed aquifer recharge in terms of harvesting drinkable water until now; I didn't even know what an aquifer was! Great work!

Hi Wallace! Nice research, I think it's important that people are informed about earthquakes since they can be so disastrous and devastating, and it's great that you chose to do your inquiry topic on them. It's too bad that they are so hard to predict - I wonder how many lives could be saved if earthquakes could be predicted more accurately, and when/if we will have that kind of technology.

Great post Wallace! I especially liked the diagrams at the end that helped provide a visual aspect to your research! You mentioned that geologists make forecasts to help predict earthquakes. They do this by gathering data from seismic monitoring networks on a global scale, high-density local monitoring in areas suspected of risk, and geological field work. Perhaps you could go into deeper depth about what these concepts are, and how it's done by scientists. Here are some links to help!

Re: The Rate of Climate Change is Slowing Down

Hey Grace, A good and educative topic you have about the climate change slowing down, according to the experience that i have come across in Africa is that because people have been doing deforestation (the cutting down of tress) and they are not replacing them, they have encourage desertification (the process by which fertile land becomes desert, typically as a result of drought) Hope the following news will help you on your next research. Nice work done bye.

Re: I wonder how the ozone layer protect life on earth.

Hey Angela, It's neat to see what the ozone is made of as I don't know too much about it. A possibility for you upcoming rounds of research is to look into how the ozone layer is in danger, which is super concerning! In an article, there was an ice base that found a hole in the ozone layer in danger of falling into chasm (first link) http://www.telegraph.co.uk/sci...anger-falling-chasm/ http://www.ffem.fr/lang/en/acc...zone/ozone-depletion Best of luck!

Nice research Angela! The ozone layer is very beneficial to us as humans but is unfortunately being destroyed by fossil fuels and greenhouse gasses. Here is a site that discusses how the ozone layer is depleting and why this is such a big problem, not only for us as humans, but for all wildlife around the world.

Re: I wonder how the ozone layer protect life on earth.

Re: The role that ozone plays.

Hi Angela, This is some very interesting research. I thought I knew a lot about the ozone layer, but after reading your research, I realized how little I actually knew. Thank you very much for giving detailed information as it helped me expand my knowledge. Something that perhaps you could look into is ozone depletion. One topic of concern recently is the issue of our ozone layer depleting, causing deadly rays to pass our atmosphere. Here is an article that I found that may help with this.

Hey Angelica! Wow, I've never thought about how our impact on the climate could be becoming apparent in rock formations and layers.

Re: RR2: Are we currently entering a new epoch? (And we don't even know it??)

Interesting research, My question is did the movies talk at all about how we can get the same amount of food without this industry? Because we consume, especially here in north america, a ton of food. so how do they, and how do you think we can combat that need for food and the kinds of food that the average person craves?
