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

Feminism is quite a common thing in human beings but the difference is that some are for it and others are against it,your reference material is just a perfect example......it will help a lot,i will share with you some other references!

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

Do you plan on finishing this whole project in the summer or taking it into next year as well?
Comment

Re: My Plan: Evolutionary Biology

I am extremely unsure of the time frame of this project. I plan to sort of go at it and after the first one see how long it took. After that, I should be able to accurately plan out the time frame of the rest.

Awesome topic! You have a very well laid out plan! Is your entire project about anger, or are you going to do other emotions too?
Comment

Re: My Plan: Evolutionary Biology

Super excited for your project!!! do you what you will be doing for the other 3 parts?
Comment

Re: My Plan: Evolutionary Biology

I'll be doing two other emotions/behaviours - Curiosity and Trust. But those are a long ways away

Re: Hypothesis (Inquiry Question)

All putt-putt boat engines rely on a heat source to work. Most engines use fire as their heat source, but it is my plan to harness the suns rays to heat the boiler tank instead.

I dont understand the mechanisms of operations of push push toy. However any operative mechanism that would limit emissions /pollutants too the environment would be highly welcome to the conservationist.

Re: Hypothesis (Inquiry Question)

Cool! How are you planning to get the resources needed for this project? Furthermore, what ARE the resources needed for this? I think it would be cool if you logged the steps you had to do to create the engine so people can recreate one... are you planning on doing something like that, or is purely experiment, result?

Re: Hypothesis (Inquiry Question)

Actually I think all that matters is the dimensions.If such a prototype is possible why not human size ship?

The scheme sounds pretty amazing Paige.As you rightly put it, music is often used to set the mood in storytelling. It helps the audience get to empathize with the character. It would be interesting to see what you come up with and more importantly, how you interpret different animal traits with music. Of note would be their movement, how they communicate and anything they do for fun.
Comment

Re: Altered Schematics (edited plan)

This is so cool! I'm particularly interested in the fact that you mentioned music has defined elements that actually make it sound 'moody,' 'cheerful,' etc. I wonder how those elements translate across different cultures. I heard somewhere (maybe from a music teacher?) that there was this experiment done where 'sad' music and 'happy' music and 'scary' music was played for people across a variety of cultures, and pretty much every person identified each correctly. Interestingly, some of these...

To me I guess the cultural exchange program are dearly worthwhile as they bring about new experience to the students,and new knowledge about each other.Breaking the stereotypes i guess they do not.

I'm really excited to see more of your project. You should do some research into voluntourism. There's a documentary on it called "volunteers unleashed" as well as a lot of interesting articles about it online.

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.

Re: Inquiry Question

I think this is a really interesting question because so many people use social media, whether it's facebook or instagram or whatever you use. There have also been so many cases lately that you hear of, like Amanda Todd,and I'd love to see where you go with this.

What a wonderful question!! I find depression very relatable as it runs through my family. i think it would be really cool if you interviewed different people of different age groups and connect the dots from there. Please be sure to share what you discover!

I love how you are taking a sickness that has been studied for many years and modernizing the big question. How can social media effect are thinking, good or bad. You do need to come up with a definition for depression because their are so many different variations, or ways to look at this.

Desi Chek (Alumni-LFAS) ·
This is a really fascinating inquiry! It reminds me of the story of Emma O'Neil that's been circulating recently. You can probably find a lot of really interesting articles about social media and mental health. I can't wait to see how your research pans out!

Such a neat topic! I found this article and thought it really helpful. It includes a bit of history as well as structural design components. It is a bit extensive, discussing the top 100 most influential aircrafts in history. http://www.flyingmag.com/photo...airplanes?pnid=34181

This is honestly the most relivent and blunt question for high school students! I feel like so many of my friends are going through this problem and they all seem to avoid the topic of social media, because deep down I know they know it has a huge impact on their mental state and behaviour. Awesome.

I also don't know why this should happen you are right this kind of cases are very common in Kenya,and not only men who rape their daughters but also but also women rape their son.In our neighboring village a woman was caught with her son,where by he gave her son ksh500 not to report.This happened because the woman divorced with her husband.

What i know for brain is that it is a complex part of human body. a brain have four pound organ that is seat of intelligence,interpreter of the senses , initiator of the body movement and controller of behavior,a brain lays in it`s bony shell and it is washed by protective fluid, it is the souse of all the qualities that define our humanity.the brain is the crown jewel of the human body.but my surprise is that some people do do not use this senses they just do their own things.

Re: SKIN COMPLEXION

I tend to think that the theory on melanin helping one maintain his or her complexion is true.Africans normally have more melanin in their skin compared to Americans and Europeans. The more the melanin you have the more protected you are against ultra violet rays , this explains why Kenyans don't have to use sunscreen and that's also the reason why when people with lighter skin come to Kenya and don't use sunscreen, their skin becomes tanned. Desi I don't think that it's counter intuitive to...

Great plan! For me, my father is south american and my mother is north american. When I was born, my skin was quite tanned but I have found over the years it has lightened a significant amount. When I travel to tropical places, my skin returns to a deep golden colour. Why and how does skin tone change?

Re: SKIN COMPLEXION

Desi Chek (Alumni-LFAS) ·
One theory I have heard is that darker skin is better protected against UV light which is why the darker your skin is, the less likely you are to get a sun burn. By this reasoning, humans have adapted their melanin levels to their environment. That makes sense to me when I consider that when I went to Kenya, I had to wear sunscreen to protect my skin, but I don't think any Kenyans wear sunscreen. However, I have no idea if this theory is actually true. And if darker skin protects against...

Evan McFee (Alumni-LFAS) ·
I'm confused as to what your question is. On one hand you are asking about the difference between the functions of an animal brain and a human brain, and on the other you ask about rape and the steps that can be taken to reduce the amount of cases. Maybe you could clarify your question a bit more, or even separate the two topics to help me/us get a better picture of what you are trying to accomplish?
Comment

Re: BRAIN AND HUMAN BEHAVIOUR

Chelsea Ross (Alumni) ·
I agree with Evan, you have 2 very different topics? But the similarities between animal and humam brain functions, in your research you could deeply tie into the idea of evolution. That would be a chapter for your notes!
