Re: Inquiry Question

Great idea. There's a reason why murals are constantly seen through the entire art history, from the Stone Age, barock frescos, and graffiti today....they are a powerful and strong kind of art. The idea with the photos, is not just modern, it also represents an entire major from the school. I'm so excited to follow the process. Keep it up! This is awesome.

Re: Inquiry Question

Michelle Ciolfitto (Mentor) ·
Very organized plan and research. Is there any benefit to having a baseline set of opinions? i.e. to determine the impact of art in public spaces, might you survey the community before the project is started to gage how they think art will affect the space itself or them personally? Survey questions must not lead the participants to a particular answer though - be careful in your question design if you opt to do this.

Re: Inquiry Question

Wow I love this idea! Photography is a really powerful art form when done correctly, and I think this is a great way to spread awareness about different issues concerning the environment and other different topics. Good luck!

Re: Inquiry Question

Wow this is really cool! Whenever I walk through parts of a school that have murals, it immediately 1) Makes the school look brighter and 2) Inspires people and makes people think about the meaning behind it. Same with driving through down town Vancouver, especially the more urban spaces. When you drive through, there are so many beautiful murals to catch your eye. I think what you are doing is great, keep up the good work!

Re: Food For Thought

That's a tonne of information you have there, I really like it. Many people don't know how to balance their diets and they end up taking too much of something which then translates to having poor health. I really like the last part where everything is outlined It is very important how you said in the beginning that our bodies are different and that different people have different needs. Each person should strive to understand their own bodies and maintain good health according to the body's...

Thanks for the comment! In the corner of the info-graphic there is a little running man that says "stay active." So, they did include exercise, but I decided not to mention it because I am focusing on nutrition. However, you are completely right about it being a vital part of being healthy. In combination, good nutrition and exercise leads to a healthy mind and body. To answer your other question, In my previous research I found that having a balanced diet improved learning. So, following a...

Re: The Burn

Desi Chek (Alumni-LFAS) ·
I agree. I've always wanted to improve my eating habits, but have struggled. It wasn't until I did this project and learned about how my diet is affecting my cognitive function and physical health that I actually started to make changes. It seemed very overwhelming at first, but starting off with smaller changes made it more manageable. One of the first changes I made was finding healthier alternatives to my favourite junk foods; I found that easier than just cutting out foods that I enjoy.

This is some really interesting research! I really like your topic. I think that it is something that everything should know to have a healthier lifestyle.

Re: Can we trust food labels?

Hi Yasmin, This is a really neat question, and I feel like you can really discover a lot throughout your research. It is true that we, the consumers, can only see what these food producers want us to see. There were rumours going around saying that McDonald's buys their beef from a company called "100% beef" so they can advertise that their beef is pure to mask the fact that they put other stuff in their meat. These rumours were put to an end when we found out that they were false, but I...

Hi Yasmin, I know this very good documentary film call "Food, Inc." It is about the dark and nasty side of American meat industry. This documentary is vey hard to watch, but very powerful at the same time. I had to try very hard to not turn the documentary off when watching it. It talk about the immoral truth that everyone avoid to face. If you are welling to dive into some intense, dark facts, I highly recommend this documentary, it is very life changing!

Hi Yasmin, I was going to suggest "Food, Inc.", but I guess Juolin already beat me to it! It's really sad, but I think it would really help with your research. I think an interesting thing you can pay attention to when you do your research is the relationship between food and our environment. So if you decide to look into, say, livestocks, there's a bunch of research out there about cattle-ranching and its effect on climate-change. Good luck on your research! :-)

Re: Can we trust food labels?

Very interesting topic Yasmin! I've been interested in food for my whole life, my mom is a caterer and we were born in Italy so food has been an important aspect of our upbringing. I've been playing with the idea of doing a "you are what you eat" photo inquiry for quite a while now and I'd be very cool if we could try and collaborate maybe or if my photos could be based on your research. This is a very informative and scary video I watched a few years ago and I think you'd enjoy learning...

Re: Research S3 Round 1 How do you pick yourself back up? (re-aligning your life): Crying

Hey Jim, I found your research pretty interesting. I myself do not cry. Well I don't not cry, I just cry very little. I find that for myself, there are very few, yet specific things/topics that can " make" me cry. I'm not a person who cry's over everything that makes them sad. On a different note I think that babies cry when they want attention, and sometimes older people want attention when they cry as well.

Hey Jim! I totally agree with what you said here in your research, especially where you mentioned the suppression of emotions and how it is in fact unhealthy for us to do so. My question is why is it more common for us to cry at night? What is the science behind this? Is there a specific reason as to why our thoughts really start to have an affect on us in the later hours of the day? It would be very interesting to look into. Couldn't find any significant sources that looked into this topic...

Hi Jim, This is a great topic and I agree with it in many ways. If I feel too many emotions and don't have anyone to talk to about them and I don't cry, I feel too overwhelmed and like there's too much weight on my shoulders and I need to relieve it. When I cry, it makes me feel more relaxed because like you said, in some weird way, feeling more depressed for that time-span where you're crying makes me feel a whole lot better when it's over.

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...

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!

Hello Priscilla, Really great work!

Hey Heeva, Pretty cool post! Definitely learned something. For its illegality in Canada, you may want to research in on the history of that. Some may have been activated because research has shown it wasn't ideal for the public so the governments were the ones that listened to the docs and scientists. To prevent a use of a certain thing would actually mean theres something less that the Govt. can tax on and gain more money, so i'd say it's a bit less of a possibility on business in this case...

Hey Dorcas, Great topic, especially with summer coming to the corner. A suggestion for your research would be to look at Melanin role against solar radiation.

Re: I wonder whether solar radiation affects human health.

Hi Dorcas what an interesting topic according to my own view of thinking i think radiation is the spread of energy through space in the form of waves and it can affect human health because it has sufficient energy to change or break molecules which can damage a cell of human body. i will be looking down to your next post work.

Nice Dorcas on solar radiation for sure some sickness and diseases come about through naturally with out our intention but because of our day to day activity which destroy protective layers on the atmosphere,thus leading to effect on human health.Radiation from sun have clear detrimental effects based on analysis of the wavelength dependency.
