Re: Experimental Music

Interesting Idea! Musicians (most artists really) these days often worry more about what they will get out of the song than the song itself, do you think this makes the song less enjoyable or more enjoyable? Why? I look forward to your project and what you find out .

I agree that not many people give thought to this question. Music is so powerful to setting a mood or theme but is also something that can be easily ignored, especially in movies because your focus is on the graphics. What many people may not realize, is that the graphics would not portray the same emotions without the music that accompanies it.

Yeah - this is a nice summary of the idea, Theresa. You're right, it is normally something people don't consider, yet such a big part of why people enjoy characters in movies so much.

Re: Experimental Music

I love that idea Jacob! I'm really excited to see what you do with that. Just some clarification - do you mean that you're looking into if it is worth it to create a work of art connected to commercial uses? Or are you looking into whether people care about it with the same intensity as a commercially connected work of art? I like your idea, but the question seems vague... Good luck!!!!

I admire you taking on this topic- it is very deep and has many areas of concern. My biggest concern from the material I have read is the community outcasting of those who choose to be strong and stand up for themselves- what is the purpose of pushing girls away? I look forward to your research.

Waaaatttt!!!This is inhuman and very painful! The government need to intervene in this, and offer justice to the families who are faced by this problem due to refusing to take part in this Cultural practice,there is no way one can be excommunicated from his community just because she refuses to undertake something she feels is bad,she has the right of belonging and freedom to social.This is dearly very serious and I feel so much disgusted,people need to realise and fight against FGM,as it...

Re: PART TWO:FEMALE GENITAL MUTILATION(FGM)

Hmm things like this are tricky. I don't agree with the practice, it sounds pointless and cruel, however it almost seems like these girls don't have a choice. It seems like in some more extreme communities if you do not follow the practice you are outcast. Not only are they denied things that they need to survive (water) but also the social isolation sounds very intense. I look forward to learning more about this topic, good luck!

its not really that if you have not under gone the cut that people in your society will neglect you,you are still like any other person only that they don't recognize you.Which is disgusting,we are in modern generation and we are not to do things passed by time,so i think it is not their will but they are forced to do so by their parents and there cutler,for me this things are passed by time for sure.We can not em back on our culture if they is are in any way negatively affecting some one or...

Re: PART TWO:FEMALE GENITAL MUTILATION(FGM)

Personally I don't agree with the practice, but I don't know if it would be possible to prevent this practice. Is there any cultural significance to the mutilation? The only thing I can think of would be going into the communities and educating them about the health risks. Full-on banning the practice in one go might have the opposite effect that you want... In a lot of cases where strict rules are imposed more people will go against those rules, and so more people might end up practicing...

apparently i think its not quite easy to be considered an outcast simply because you refuse to undergo the cut.it has been an awful stand taken on by the communities who simply don't understand or realize that they are increasing the dangers of loosing more and more girls as each day surpasses.the long term effects of the cut are very horrifying.as you go ahead with your research you can simply research on the dangers encountered by girls after going through the cut.

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'd be happy to talk to you about this subject if you want to chat on facebook or the private messaging service here on butterfly. I think a loss of vitality is more visible than a loss of happiness because joy or excitement is not an emotion that can constantly be maintained. Vitality is in the weight of someone's footsteps, the tone of their voice, and the amount of time it takes them to get out of bed in the morning. It's very interesting how so much of mental illness has been...

There actually used to be a work space in Vancouver for artists that were struggling with mild to severe mental illness. Unfortunately, like most things that are necessary for the overall wellness of the individual, the space has been closed due to a lack of funding. When it was functioning it was both a work space, an exhibition space, and a business space. Artists were able to sell what they had produced, and were given the resources to continue their artwork. Sorry if this was a bit of a...

Wow this topic is really interesting. I think you're definitely right about not enough people understanding that depression isn't just sadness but a inability to live your life how you want to, an inability to add enough meaning to your life to your life to make yourself happy. I think that one the best ways to help people with depression is to educate others on what exactly these people are going through, most people just don't understand what happening. I'll be interested to see what you...

Re: Student-teacher relationships

Love your research so far. I would love to talk more about this with you at some time, the relationship students have with their teachers is a big part in how we can educate people about mental illness. If teachers have positive relationships with students they can be more aware of when a student is in need of help.

Re: Student-teacher relationships

I really like this research! Everything you have found is completely true, and think that its very interesting. I have one question, is there a different in student-teacher relationships with different genders?

This is really good research. Are these results from one specific area or are they a little bit more general? It would be interesting to see how the results vary from region to region. This is a great start on your project, I'm excited to see the surveys that you develop.

Re: Student-teacher relationships

Audrey Heath (Charles Best) ·
This is a really cool topic. Are you looking at different ages because a kindergarten student to their teacher might be different than a high school students to their teacher. At younger ages I think kids will really look up to there teachers, since they spend all day with them. What about reputations? In older grades a kid might have a reputation for being bad, so you don't even give them a chance. Can't wait to see what you do next because it is relatable and I find it interesting. Good Luck!

Re: COMMUNICATION IN ANIMALS

Animal communication is really diverse. Sound is not the only avenue that animals use to communicate but it is the most common. Sound is used differently by different animals according to their phyla, genus or species. It would be interesting if you looked at how the communication becomes similar or different as animals become more related

bees are one of the most intellect animals. They are able to know their partners from the fluid the queen secrete. Bess mostly communicate by the way they associate in the hive. The queen is able to know all the members of its colony.

Re: COMMUNICATION IN ANIMALS

I think that this is a very interesting thing to be looking at, as every where you look you can hear animals making whatever sound they make. I never even thought about the fact that they have so many different meanings depending on what specific sound they make. Good luck on this!

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...
