Re: QUESTION INQUIRY/THE RIVER AND THE SOURCE.A CONTEXTUAL REVIEW.

Feminism has been a controversial movement for many years, although now a days most people believe the movement to be beneficial other are starting to question weather it's a movement for equality or a movement to prove females as the prominent gender. Here are 2 videos of peoples personal opinions on Feminism; one for Feminism and one against: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vNErQFmOwq0 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AVIAK5RazxA

To understand how feminism has impacted "modern society," I think it's important to understand the role that feminism has played throughout history. Here's a link to an article on the history/impact of feminism: http://www.history.ac.uk/makin.../womens_history.html

The students get to learn different things about the other culture this creates unity among the students and they are no longer judgmental about what the other thinks .The negative stereotypes are broken and the fantasy becomes real.

I find when I use colour in my drawings that if I want to do a background in red, a darker red or a burgundy really makes the subject stand out, as it's not a very loud or obnoxious shade. I've never really thought of different shades connotating different shapes though! Interesting.

Re: Inquiry quesition

I think the key word in your question is "equal." If both sides were completely equal, in terms of society, It would be unlikely that there would be a negative impact. The only possible issue with this is that equality has always been a challenge for people to achieve.

I read a short story by Kurt Vonnegut, Jr. called "Harrison Bergeron." It was set in the future and, basically, it was the consequences of total equality. I'll include the link for you to read here. https://archive.org/stream/Har...%20Bergeron_djvu.txt "Equal" is a funny word, as it can mean several different things.

Perhaps if there was no gender inequality, the negative impacts would be the production of a different form of inequality, as I think it has become the nature of our society to live in some form of unrest. Whenever peace looks possible, something comes back up to shake it up.

Hi,that's nice of you Juma.Alcoholism is a sensitive issue in Kenya.Not a single month passes by without death as a result of alcoholism hitting our news headlines.It seems alcoholism begins at tender age in Kenya.First was the bus that was full with student(male and female)drunk and drinking,then there was the 500 under sixteens who were caught in a pub's basement drinking and engaging into all immoral acts known to man.Am looking forward to outcomes of your research.

Re: ALCOHOLISM

This is a really interesting way of approaching this project. I like how you're coming at it from an unbiased point of view, and looking at both sides of the argument. I think in this situation it would be useful to talk to people who have not only had alcohol problems, but also people who have recovered from it. Good luck!

Re: Research Week #2 Re: How does the meat production really impact the environment?

Hey Jim, I loved reading your research round, you made some very strong points and it was very interesting and funny. For your next round of research I've heard about the massive contribution that meat production plays in global warming. From what I've heard and read certain meat industries are paying environmental charities to keep "hush hush" on the impact they have on our environment. Scary right? Just a suggestion, but I think you could touch on multiple environmental effects from the...

Hey there, so this is a topic that is very important to me and affects my daily life. For a while now I've been vegan.

Re: RESEARCH ROUND 2: What is the environmental impact of different diet plans?

Hi!!! I really love your topic! I just wanted to let you know that I've been vegan for quite a long time and I take vitamin suplemements like B12 etc.. so I'm not like lacking my essential vitamins so i thought maybe you should research on the difference in taking vitamin supplements rather than getting actual vitamins and minerals from foods?

Re: RESEARCH ROUND 2: What is the environmental impact of different diet plans?

Hey Maiya! Super interesting topic. I was just wondering something that I have always pondered about but never really found an answer to. How is animal cruelty reduced? This hurts to say, but wouldn't they slaughter the animals anyway, for another person to buy? Or does the market slowly go down or shut down when a set number of people stops buying the animals, or in this case, products made by animals as well? Just curious. Anyways, good luck on your research!

Re: Cycle 1, Research Round 1 - Does Fame Impact Life Expectancy?

Hey Joanna, Great post! I really appreciated how you compared the average lifespan of a celebrity with that of someone "normal." What I was thinking about is whether or not it is fame itself that causes a higher death rate for celebs or whether it is the new things that are introduced to someone who has just entered "the world of fame." When I say things, I am referring to street drugs, alcohol, online/public hate, paparazzi, etc. So, if you could look into whether or not celebrities who...

Re: Cycle 1, Research Round 5 - Does Fame Impact Life Expectancy?

Hi Joanna! I think that natural human instinct is to try and be the best because "survival of the fittest" right? so everything you are saying like how it boosts ego and also how fame probably acts as sort of validation to certain people, (the pictures and wanting of attention from "fans"). They see the good parts of famous people's lives and want that for themselves. Everyone growing up, knows that attention somehow leads to good things happening, most of the time, this comes from family...

Hi, Joanna! this is a really interesting topic. I noticed that in your post, you have discussed the three reasons to be famous. I totally agree with your idea, and I think the reason why someone has strong desire to be famous is related to the childhood they had. Parents are the essential factor that influences their children. If the parent has a strong desire to themselves, then their children possibly have an intense ego. Also, I am curious about what will people want after they get the...
