I think yes ,if you walk with a dog you will play due to it physical aspect,then when you are more exposed to sports your chances of keeping a dog is high because most of the times you will like to be active in a way or the other.I think dog owners are more active because your dog can not give you a cool chance of resting it must make you or give the idea of playing so the owner is active than a person who does not keep a dog when compered.

Interesting idea! I think the link between pet ownership and physical activity is a great synthesis of the two inquiries. I also wonder about the relation between pet ownership and other aspects, such as mental health and stress management.

Re: Understanding Cultures (broaden your thinking)

I think that the cultural aspect of all of these projects is important, because you can't just say what they are doing is bad, because it may just be what they have grown up with, and changing something that you have done all you're life is very difficult. if you think about if someone came and told us watching TV was bad, we wouldn't change right away, and it would be very difficult, because we are so seed to it. I really think that realizing that is important, and i think you made a great...

I enjoy occasions in which cultural understanding is applied to science. The story of the Lucky Iron Fish is just one example of how implementing innovations requires broad knowledge of certain culture's ideologies, customs, and values, in addition to scientific study. As we maneuver into the future said knowledge will become ever so significant.

I think animation is an especial form of PSA as it effectively conveys a message in an amusing manner. Awareness is made all the more impacting when it is intertwined with a beauteous score, colorful imagery, and intriguing setting. We've all, hopefully, had the experience of witnessing a moving piece of film/animation/documentary that forever imbues our minds with certain facts.

I think any PSA film, regardless of its medium has the possibility to draw attention. It would be more about finding a way for the audience to connect/care about environmental issues. You might want to look into advertising psychology if you want to learn more about it.

I think this is a really cool idea. Putting ideas into the form of entertainment, which is sad to say but it will make people more interested. People would be aware of what's going on and it can educate kids who don't think about these things. As long as the info isn't put into text to discretely, otherwise they might not even realize the big idea. Where as if you add it in to harshly they might see it as purely educational and won't want to watch it.

Re: Broaden Your Thinking

I think this is a super cool idea, and I really like how it ties the two projects together. I think that even if people do see it as entertainment, it will still be having awareness raised about it. There are many different ways to do this, and I think that it could work if it's done in the right way.

On the subject of risk taking and your final questions, people who have more at stake that they could gain from a situation won't take risks. That's a bit confusing, so let's put it into a medical situation that is easier for me to talk about for various reasons: Say someone is put into a life or death situation, such as a stroke. That person is unable to make decisions for themselves. Therefore, the responsibility of that life is put into the hands of a close family member or guardian. A...

I certainly agree with Mageto victor....many youths will divert their attention to the music programmes and hence the crime rates will reduce since the youths will be utilizing most of their leisure time in music.It can also have negative effects since some videos exposes bad behaviors and thus crime rate can increase.

This is where the idea of talent slims in,the sports people besides playing sports to generate income they also enjoy it as its their talent,when playing they feel better and good,and satisfied,this sports persons also end up getting addicted to their various sports,their fans also motivates them to play the games..others play the sport to gain popularity and become famous!

Re: Broaden Your Thinking

Emily: I like your question. Terrorism is such a complex issue with many contributing factors. The desperation and the alienation of young people who have no prospects for their future economically and feel alienated from a culture that they still feel is a remnant of colonialist suppression are very difficult factors to eradicate. This, in combination, with the increase in nationalist thinking, leaves these young people open and vulnerable to anyone who is charismatic and offers an...

I totally understand and agree with you guys. But at the same time, I'm just thinking about what these trophy hunters could be thinking. If that's what they grew up with, thinking killing animals for fun is okay, then they'll just continue on with it. And they honestly don't care enough to make changes. I know what's right and what's wrong. But I'm just trying to relate two similar ideas on opposite ends of a scale.

Eunice,you see,when an athlete runs and wins,no one is hurt except the pavements.It comes along with fame for the best sportsmen.The price they get is earned and they deserve every bit of it.On the other hand,trophy hunting is for the rich who pays for the sport and earn a trophy(the poor animal)and some sort of "recognition'.The effect is felt.

Some times people should focus more on conserving the wildlife at large than killing for money,the government should be responsible and look at the positive side and they should burn trophy hunting.

for Eunice this is like the government and an individual there is a great difference between the two,what the government can say an individual can not say no! since the government has than an individual,it is same to the billionaires who plays the game of trophy hunting the animals are killed for no purpose i think the government should burn trophy hunting, our nature is important than the money from the hunters .
Comment

Re: Broaden Your Thinking

I like this idea, how you combined our questions. It is human nature to survive, and compete for their survival. People love competition, and winning. People that are athletes, or trophy hunters get a "rush" from these activities. When they achieve something such as winning a game, or a good kill they are proud of themselves, and want to do it again. People usually play a sport because of an ongoing good experience. Yes money can play a part, but that is some of what I found.

Re: Broaden Your Thinking - Law Enforcement and Music

Paige Hunter (LFAS-Alumni) ·
Thanks Victor! You bring up an interesting point, it would matter what kind of music was being listened to... What I was trying to go for was that the kids would become 'classically' trained, so that they would have the ability to take lessons on an instrument with a professional, and the theory would be that having a place to commit their time and energy might help them feel more positive.
Comment

Re: Broaden Your Thinking - Law Enforcement and Music

Victor Mageto (Alumni) ·
To some extend I can agree that if music programs were developed in areas with high crime rate it could help reduce the crimes since many youths who dearly love music could deeply get busy to listening music and doing music.On the under it could also increase the rate of crimes if the kind of music listened do is not spiritual or helpful,some youths will watch music where the singer smokes wildly and will try smoke like them as they love them and there music thus leading to them being addicted.
Comment

Re: Broaden Your Thinking - Law Enforcement and Music

I would to support Mageto on that, it entirely depends on what type of music the children are exposed to whether it emphasizes on good behavior and character or it emphasizes on bad behavior.I think the idea of bringing music lessons is brilliant and it may steer things to the positive direction. You should take this idea further and try to implement it in your neighborhood.

This is a really mind-opening thought. I've noticed that the biggest thing about each country and its history is the art that their ancestors leave behind. And because these traditional artifacts and dances, we are able to learn of their ways of living, important events, or even those who have lived. Great opinion!

This is an amazing topic. It has never really occured to me how much art influences everything in our lives, or how two cultures halfway around the planet from eachother could be so alike. Its great that you have first hand experience within both communitys instead of just spectating. Are you planning on studing all forms of art or focusing on one. I cant wait to see which paths your project takes.
