Re: New Inquiry: Schizophrenia (treatment and stigma)

Samuel Kariuki (Tigithi) ·
This is a cool area of research you have.I was reading on a local paper and came across this article about mental illness even though not specifically schizophrenia. According to statistic detailed,more than 25% of Kenyans at some point in their lifetime had had a mental disorder.As a result,adoption of the Kenyan Health Mental policy 2015-2030 in a bid to shift attention to mental illnesses[a long neglected issue in Kenya]It feels good that schizophrenia issue is not neglected in Butterfly...

Re: New Inquiry: Schizophrenia (treatment and stigma)

Hey Samuel, Thanks for sharing your information about Kenya's view on schizophrenia, I will totally look into that too. What is quite fascinating for me, even if its negative, but no mater at which place or country, I did schizophrenia research so far, that disease was not accepted by the society. To hear that from your view about Kenya again, makes me continuing research and posting, because I think it's at us to make a change.

Re: MY PLAN

Wow these are really insightful questions! I haven't recognized many gender stereotypes in Canada mainly because I never thought about it too much. I'm excited for you to ask your mentor questions and I'm interested in the answers. Good luck with your project!

Re: MY PLAN

These are really good questions to be asking and things that we should be thinking about in our daily lives. It is important for us as people to recognize when we are wrongfully gender stereotyping if we wish to grow as a society and move past problems like this. I look forwards to hearing what her answers are good luck!

This United Nations human development report is really cool! It would be interesting if you did an analysis of the information in the index you found. What really surprised me is that even in the countries with the highest human development not everyone had a secondary education. And then when you get to the countries with a lower human development it's really disheartening how many people don't have access to education. One of my favourite documentaries is Girl Rising. It's about the...

Re: INQUIRY QUESTION!

This is a really interesting project you are working on! It is quite a huge task to have gender equality in a country. If I were you I'd probably look at the happiest/most peaceful countries in the world and what they have done to make it like that. I'm sure the happiest countries are the ones who have made changes for the best. I'm grade 6 I read up on China and how each family could only have one child. They always wanted boys because they could do work and carry along the families name.

Re: INQUIRY QUESTION!

Sarah Tylor (Mentor) ·
This is a really interesting and difficult topic! The chart you provided has surprising information. I'm curious if all countries consider gender equality the same? What some may consider equal, perhaps others may not, which may inadvertently end up contributing to inequality. I think citizens can help by being considerate & respectful of each other, and seeing men & women not necessarily the same but as equals. Men & women each have different things to contribute and we should...

Re: INQUIRY QUESTION!

Emma Irvine (Alumni) ·
I think this is a very interesting question and an important topic to explore. I think one major problem when it comes to gender equality that we don't often talk about that occurs in first world countries people dramatizing the gender issues that we face. While countries like Canada do face gender issues they are in no way as severe as in other countries, and I feel as though if people really want to fight the gender cause they need to be looking at other countries and not focusing on the...

This is a very challenging but also interesting topic.Gender inequality is a big problem that many countries are facing.I think government can assist by educating citizens why gender equality is important in society.Personally i would look at the developed countries and find out what steps they have taken to get far without discriminating both men and women.I believe in developed countries men and women contribution is considered so this step might be a help in your research.

Re: INQUIRY QUESTION!

One thing to consider on this chart, Victor, is that by virtue of the fact that mothers are the ones who have to give birth (at least at this point in history! ) and are the ones who are nursing their young, a difference of 10% isn't really all that much within a whole nation of working people. There would always be, a portion of the population, among child-bearing aged people, home taking care of young ones. So in the case where the women are participating in the employment sector in the...

That is a very interesting topic,especially because it is a very common issue.In my own opinion i think how the government and society can establish and uphold gender equality is working together,by this i mean the society should promote equality among-est themselves by respecting each others opinions,ideas,culture,talent,dressing,mannerisms,religion,desires and so much despite their gender.The government can come up with policies that promote and uphold gender equality,organize rallies and...

Re: Gender Inequality

This is a very interesting field of research. The African continent has diverse cultures which are different but also have certain similarities. What do you think the culture has to do with the problem of gender inequality? Talking about the government, do you think the government in some countries have played part in bringing in gender inequality? It would be really interesting if you looked into that because there are so many things that affect gender equality in many countries in the world.

Re: Gender Inequality

I am very interested in your question, Dale, especially as there is an inherent contradiction within the government of first world countries when they espouse equality but do not model it in the lived reality of their governmental infrastructures. You might find it helpful in your research internet searches to use the term "affirmative action policies in government". Affirmative action means giving an advantage to under-represented groups within an employment or government sector. Good luck...

Sex difference in education are a type of sex discrimination in the education system affecting both men and women during and after their educational experiences. Men are more likely to be literate on a global average, although women are more prevalent at higher educated in some countries and even in Kenya. I think to stop this the government especially the President must appoint a cabinet secretary to deal with this kid of activity. Actually this corruption!!!!!!!

Re: MILITARY MIGHT

Very true, very true. Unfortunately, not everyone is a pacifist and completely unwilling to attack others, so in this world it is necessary for countries to have military power lest they get destroyed by some tyrannical dictator bent on conquest.
Comment

Re: MILITARY MIGHT

This is sadly true. Some people become so blind to how things impact not only other people but also animals and the environment. Unless it is directly impacting them, I think people in general are very arrogant in the way that they act and the things that they do. There is a great imbalance in the worlds military system these days and unfortunately right now there isn't a whole lot that we can do about it.

Re: MILITARY MIGHT

Hi there, Ken: There are two "schools of thought" on military might. First, many people believe that disarmament and peace treaties (demilitarization) is the only way to ensure world peace. This kind of thinking is what lead to the League of Nations after the Armistice during WWI but because this organization had no "military might", the fascist dictators of the 1930's were able to gain more and more power. In addition, they also practiced the "Policy of Appeasement" which means that the L...

Re: How can we mitigate tribalism which is negatively impacting on Kenya?

Hi Jackline, I find your question to be quite profound, for there are so many different aspects you could be looking at. Perhaps you can begin by looking at the causes and the makings of tribes during the colonizations to better your understanding of their importance, then and now. Here is a link I found that discusses not only that topic but much more: http://origins.osu.edu/article...e-and-politics-kenya I hope this helps further your research, good luck!

Hey Stephen! Colonialism is a super interesting subject in terms of its long lasting effects on the peoples who were both colonizing and those being colonized. As there have been so many undesirable ramifications that have resulted and continue to result from such ethnocentric conquest it is a dark subject.

Re: C2 Research #2: What are Canada's greatest political challenge(s)?

Hi Kalith! I liked how you always look at both the pros, and the cons of every political situation before giving your opinion. It allows us, as readers to form our own opinions as well, which is nice. My question is, wouldn't it be worse on the world political stage for Canada, if we did not take in as many/any refugees to focus on our own internal issues. Especially given our reputation as a country? Good luck with your research.
