Re: THE GALAXY

Lucy Muturi (Loise) ·
I really like your topic of study.it really is true that there might be life in some galaxies but yet you need to expound more on the type of life that you really expect.is it life that supports human life or plant life. I think if you also look at the possible outcomes of the life in these galaxies you might also know the duration in which one can survive in those galaxies. for instance the US government is trying to formulate a way of settling their growing population by finding means such...

Re: THE GALAXY

That is one of the most controversial questions in the field of science and especially astronomy and astrobiology. Scientists have struggled with this question for a long time but haven't yet found the answer yet. When delving into such a question it is important first to lay out and expound on all your questions, for example 'is there life in other galaxies apart from the milky way?'. For this question, I think it is important to first know what kind of life we are expecting to find, is it...

Re: THE ORIGIN OF LIFE ACCORDING TO THE SCIENTISTS

I really like your post because I am also very interested in evolution and how life forms came into existence. I think that there is a possibility that life could be produced by chance because no one really knows for sure where life came from but there are so many different theories and ideas.

Why do you think origin or authenticity/origin matters to humans? Why do we have to feel special and know where we come from? Is identity a product of high intelligence?

This is amazing, Sophie! I like the creativity you showed in the use of driftwood pieces as book covers. The size of something is important, especially to young kids. Fantastic artwork, by the way!

Once, mankind found itself in a much simpler time. In the ancient world, things changed very little over the course of several generations. While the people of this ancient world certainly did not know as much as we do today, they had the opportunity to experiment and refine their techniques over the course of hundreds of years. These techniques included, everything from spiritual connections to healing. As they did these things over and over, they set the prototype for how the mind works at...

Sophie,I like every bit of what your are doing.I think art is the most effective medium as culture is concern.I mean,if people before us never practiced it,we could still in dark on some issues about culture.We get to know more about culture through art. It's through art that you learnt about First Nations in Canada and which you're planning on passing to your siblings back in Germany and they'll probably pass it to their children and by doing so,the past culture of Canada will be known not...

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

You have some very interesting findings. It is so cool that you were actually able to go to Kenya to have this experience. Most people only know what they read on the Internet or heard from a friend and you actually learned from your own experience and can understand it. I have never been there so my imagination of it can be way different than what it actually is. Comparing Canadians to Kenyans can teach us so much. Imagine if we didn't have phones, people would actually talk to each other...

Re: Ongoing Reflection

Hi Theresa Am glad to see the trip to Kenya had such a profound impact on your world view. Absence of this in my opinion is one of the main courses of cultural misunderstanding among peoples. Am sure the Kenyan students also learnt a great deal from interacting with you in a small way and that these small networks will continue to foster cultural understanding.

Wow this is very thought provoking post. It's interesting to think that even though we are all people everyone has very different values depending on what country, culture, etc. You were brought up in. I found the bit where you talked about not feeling sluggish to get up early for school really interesting as well. Im excited for where this project takes you. Good luck!: )

Re: THE BURN

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.

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 Chelsea, this is a really great concept. I feel like many people, especially people our age, feel as though they have to get rid of all of their excess hobbies and only focus only on one thing (example: future careers, university major etc.) to have a successful life. It's for sure interesting and a little eye-opening to think about.

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: Statistics and measures about the human wild life conflict

Hello Newton! I think it's really great that you can relate to this statement, and you can think about how it affected your life. I like it when people can relate my research so I'm sure others feel the same way too. Good job

Re: Statistics and measures about the human wild life conflict

Hey Newton, I'm glad you this was about using electric fences-what do you think, based on what you read are the best, most sustainable methods to minimize the conflicts?

Re: Statistics and measures about the human wild life conflict

Hi Newton! You have some really great points in this post. I really appreciated being able to read your thoughts on this. I wonder what obstacles exist in making electric fences around conservancies? I know in Canada, for instance, a lot of conservancies get their money from grants, like this one - http://whc.org/conservation/conservations-grants/ . Perhaps it could be interesting to see how conservancies get their money, and why those sources don't always work. Thanks for the interesting post!

Re: RR4C2 - Virus Life Cycle (Differences)

Ben Laird (LFAS) ·
Hey Aiswarya, nice research so far! Knowing the differences between these two contrasting systems of viral reproduction is certainly important! If you haven't already I would check out DR. Graham Hatfull (University of Pittsburgh/HHMI) who does some videos on bacteriophages (which would relate to your topic) among other science videos. He is very informative, although you may find the video a bit dry as it is quite long. Even if you just checked out his research you might find some...

Re: RR4C2 - Virus Life Cycle (Differences)

Hey Aiswarya! This was a great research round! I really appreciate your breaking up your information into smaller sections so that the research is more comprehensive and concise. One question that I have is: do different viruses go through these cycles, or can the same virus undergo different cycles, but behave differently? Here's a link which I hope will help with your research: - https://www.boundless.com/biol...riophages-553-11763/ Good luck!

Re: RR5C2 - Virus Life Cycle

Hey Aiswarya, Thats very fascinating, I never knew that the viruses evolve with the host. I know a lot of people who live in areas where certain viruses are common, they adapt and become immune to that virus (ex. malaria) but is it possible to be infected by the same virus twice? Here is a link that I hope will help answer Anika's question: https://www.reddit.com/r/asksc...nd_lysogenic_cycles/ Great research, and I look forward to your next round!

Re: RR5C2 - Virus Life Cycle

Hi Aiswarya, Your research is very interesting. I never thought about how both viruses and its host co-evolve, but upon further reflection it seems to make sense. Often, a virus will infect an organism and the organism will evolve overtime and may become immune to the virus. At the same time, that same virus evolves and finds a way to bypass the organism's immunity and give itself the ability to infect that organism again. This cycle seems to never end and may explain a lot more about...

Re: RR5C2 - Virus Life Cycle

Hey Adithya Great question. I am not sure wheather a virus can cause humans to devolve but however, the human immunodeficiency virus is a virus that does destabilise the immune system, so it is similar to devolution in a way. But I will research about this and let you know as soon as I can.

Re: RR5C2 - Virus Life Cycle

Hi Aiswarya, When you previously discussed how viruses may influence human evolution, I never considered that humans may influence the evolution of viruses. The quote you chose perfectly summarized your post. A question I have for you is how would the lack of viruses in a community affect the population of a society? I look forward to reading your next post!

I'd be interested to see the different ways depression could fit into this, since the mental illness (I hate that term) varies from person to person. If you have any questions about how one of those variants affect a person, let me know.

Re: Are we meant to be happy?

Hey Yasmin, this is a really interesting topic. Is there a lot of research out there for this topic or is it a relatively new field of study? Also do you plan on going into the neurological and chemical reasons for happiness or more of the outside influences. This book may help you understand why the brain does certain things or feels a certain way especially in the teenage years : The Primal Teen by Barbara Strauch keep us posted and good luck

Re: Are we meant to be happy?

Thank You. Yes I believe that even though this has been a question we've been asking ourselves forever it is not something very thoroughly studied. I will definitely check out the book you have recommended!

Re: Are we meant to be happy?

Hey Yasmin! This is a great topic! I personally think that we humans have developed this inherent sense of dissatisfaction, because no matter what we do, we always want what we don't have. We have evolved to admire the people or the things that have more than we do, and while they still exist in our view, we are unable to see those who have less. Perhaps we are dissatisfied because we pity ourselves, even when we sorely do not deserve it. I obviously have no real experience with any of the...

Hi Jim, this definitely sounds like an interesting topic to talk about, this event has happened to everyone in their lifespan and I think it is an amazing idea to help other people with a plan on how to deal with this. you could look into the time it takes for someone to move on from a break up, how it might be different if something ws changed about it.

Interesting! Hi Jim I found your topic very appealing! I only have a little question for you. Personally I believe it feel very different emotionally, between facing a blockade in my life (like making a mistake) and dealing with a traumatize experience (like loosing someone special). Are you going to look at the recovery of these different types of experiences together or separating them into smaller groups?
