Yes we are all made in the likes of the lord and people should be confident on how they look but looking at it from another perspective you can see sometimes it happens, eg.when one is involved in an accident or fire and gets bad injuries and wounds on the face then some may seek plastic surgery....but about beauty and staff like that I tend to disagree!
Comment

Re: THE BURN

Plastic surgery does not have to be specifically for beauty purposes only,even in teens it may be brought about by other factors including accidents that call for the procedure to be procured

When we went to Kenya and visited the schools, I was shocked by the ratio of students to teachers. I think it's unfair to the teachers and the students to have such large classes and a limited supply of teachers to teach them. Have you found any information on how the Kenyan government is trying to remedy this situation? Also, where are your sources? I'm interested to know if you got your information from the people we met on our trip or if it's mostly from the internet.

Hmm I almost feel you could actually find out in a controlled experiment. It's worth looking into I think.

Do you think that plastic surgery is necessarily detrimental? If it gives someone, regardless of age, more self-confidence isn't that beneficial?

Re: Orca Whale Conservation

Nice topic! I've always found Orcas to be interesting sea animals (although I don't know much about them). many different cultures have legends of the killer whale, it might be interesting to look into those. I look forward to your project and what you find out.
Comment

Re: Orca Whale Conservation

This topic is very intriguing! I like how your question relates to the human contact with the killer whale, since the human/killer whale relationship shapes the future of this species. I look forward to your future research.

The cultures are different due to different ways of living and ways of doing things,they are also same due to canadian and kenyan people interacting and absorbing the different cultures!

That is a nice enquiry question.I tend to think that we all have different social values like we here in Kenya we are more based at improving the academic performance of the students therefore not considering the part of nurturing young talents while in Canada students are able to nurture their talents since you guys have like the arts school of which we don't have in Kenya.

That number seems quite large. I would like to know how many of those surgeries happened under medical advisory, as some plastic surgeons do work on youth as a benifit or need to their health; medically speaking. For children who have birth defects, burns, scaring, and defects caused by disability or birth complications. I hope society and parents dont encourage young people to get surgery strictly to improve outer beauty.

To my response on your questions i think children are more often able to coupe with changes than any other people and therefore if trained to be socially responsible when young they will be easily get used and be what you wanna them be.

If people get educated on the dangers it can bring to their lives,I think it can reduce these cases on people being harassed sexually or physically due to relationships through social medias.

Maybe the best idea on this matter is not engaging oneself in deals on which you have no idea or any knowledge about and also watching the kind of friends maybe you want to socialize with and also thinking out of the box

To avoid this we must first thing of what kind of people we approach.it is not also my first time to hear such cases in my life.there was a woman who killed her hasband because she found a picture of a girl in her hasband phone.the only thing that i would like to advise people is to avoid the internet if they know they are not able to control their fellings.

Wow this is some really great and interesting research. I like how you not only gave teen statistics, but adult statistics as well. I think a lot of people over look the fact that adults are affected by social media as well, they just aren't as public about it as teens are. Looking forwards to where this takes you, good luck!

Re: Depression and Social Media Research

Audrey Heath (Charles Best) ·
This is really interesting because they didn't have these problems before. Before social media was invented I wonder how many less people suffered from depression. I might not be depressed but I think we all have are moments where we are like " Wow, she is really pretty, I am so ugly." When really you aren't, everyone has their own type of beauty. That is just my theory. Can't wait to see what you find out next.

Re: Metamorphosis-Social Media and Depression

I think your project was really successful, Emily! A lot of the stuff that you have talked about in your posts I believe is really important, as you said in this summary. I wonder if it may be a good idea to use your new research from this project to spread more awareness about depression and social media. I've found people often take others more seriously when they talk about important issues with research to back them up. Maybe even making a youtube video to put on Facebook, or something...

Re: Metamorphosis-Social Media and Depression

Haleigh Strickler (LFAS) ·
I just wanted to add my own idea to this, although it may seem obvious. I think one of the reasons why people may be more willing to share their thoughts online is the anonymity of it. They may share with a complete stranger who's judgement isn't clouded by personal connection, and can look at it with objectivity. I know that people with depression don't usually like talking about it, or getting special treatment or pity form people in their life. That's at least what I've noticed, and it...

Re: Metamorphosis-Social Media and Depression

I think that this was a very cool topic, and all of your research is true! I think that everyone should know how hurtful it can be when someone comments something rude on social media. It can effect people more than we think. I think that if everyone knows what we know, people would be more respectful and think about what they are posting on social media. I really liked reading your research, and good luck on your next project!

I think they don't treat such large number of teenagers because the u.s government can not allow such things to happen.If they do as you say then there could be so many accidents or many people are ugly.For more information to know the exert number who under go plastic surgery ask professional doctors.

Re: SOCIAL MEDIA ADDICTION STATISTICS.

This was an interesting post, Rosemary! I'm looking forward to seeing the survey results. Are you planning on opening the survey to Canadian butterfly effect students as well? Also, I wonder what article you found on the Huffington post? Can you possibly put links on your research posts from now on? It's helpful for people reading your posts in understanding where your statistics are coming from.

Re: SOCIAL MEDIA ADDICTION STATISTICS.

Great post! It's really crazy and slightly concerning to see those statistic. We have definatley grow to be a very technilogically driven society. Everyone typically has upwards of one device, and I would go as far as saying that a lot of people are addicted to their devices. They get anxious or nervous when away from them for a while, or feel awkward just being with themselves, especially I find in social gatherings when they are alone or don't really have anyone to talk to. It will be...

Hey Rosemary, I do believe that in today's society , we use technology a lot. I will admit that I spend some of my free time on my phone either on social media or playing games. But I also believe phones can be useful, even if you are addicted to it. I think something that would be good for you to look into would be the pros and cons of phones/technology. Hope this helps

Re: SOCIAL MEDIA ADDICTION STATISTICS.

I think this is very interesting! Many people, teens especially, are addicted to their phones, and spent too much time on them. I am guilty of this too. I spend a lot of time on my phone, and have numerous social media accounts (Instagram, Facebook, Snapchat, Twitter, and more). All of my friends, and basically everyone at my school have all of these accounts, and most likely spend at least 3 hours a day on them. Social media is a huge part of society right now, and I think will continue to...

Re: SOCIAL MEDIA ADDICTION STATISTICS.

Hi Rosemary, Your research is really interesting and I'm eager to see what you find through your survey! I think you should consider looking at how someone can end their addiction to their phone and the internet. Here's a website that talks about the statistics of nomophobia and how to achieve a balanced approach: https://www.psychologytoday.co...ng-trend-in-students Good luck!

Hey Rosemary, cool research! Lots of people spend a lot of time using electronics. And although not everything about that is bad it is certainly an addiction. I think with a tool such as the internet there is easy access to a wealth of knowledge. Yet, there are also many corrupt, and incredible sources. It will be interesting to see the outcome of your survey so that we may cross reference it with the huffington post stats. Just as an aside it may be wise to use more than one sight when...

Re: SOCIAL MEDIA ADDICTION STATISTICS.

Hi Rosemary, this is very interesting! These statistics are very accurate by what I see day to day, but I was wondering, are these all the same in different countries? Do you think these statistics would differ if they were in a developing country? I found some examples of statistics in some different countries, if you would like to look at them: http://www.cnn.com/2016/01/13/...l-media-consumption/ https://www.emarketer.com/Arti...rking-Mexico/1013741...

Re: SOCIAL MEDIA ADDICTION STATISTICS.

Hello moira definitely its very true that when some of the teens end up being alone in social gatherings or get bored,the only option most of them end up with is scrolling their phones and getting the trending updates whenever its possible for them to.Its so surprising that i end up categorizing myself in the same case as mentioned above which is a bit hard to try and stop the addiction.
