does the ability to handle heartbreaks go hand in hand with ones age.Like would it be easier for an old person to handle trauma brought by heartbreaks than it would be for someone say aged 20

Re: BROADEN YOUR THINKING // The Missing Link? (Paige Hunter)

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 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.

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 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.

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.

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...

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.

Francis Wachira (Tigithi) ·
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.

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!

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.

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

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

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.
Comment

Re: Broaden Your Thinking - Law Enforcement and Music

Joy Evans Wangui (Loise) ·
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 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!

I could seriously do burns for all of your posts, you've got so many cool things to say! It's so cool that the students would perform a dance or song for you. I think that art definitely impacts AND enriches life, especially having gone to an arts school. I've noticed that having a passion (your major) in which to put your energy generally leaves you feeling more personally and generally satisfied, resulting in an overall more positive attitude.

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.

Re: Broaden Your Thinking

maybe it may look like fun to most but loosing an animal for fun is not that much fun and i think this combination is superfluous and it is better to go to athletics than hunting in which in hunting we are slowly loosing our heritage mostly in Africa and in Kenya

Apparently it's a nice uptake to use arts to express what one fills.....as per me I think that arts could be a hallway for expressing ones feelings....as terrorism is concerned I think arts could be a better platform to express what They feel rather than use military based systems.am looking forward to see what you find out through your research.

Cool comparison, the way television depicts the love at first sight is certainly different than reality as almost all hollywood films and tv shows are altered from a realistic situation to an extent. Like you said Characters moulded for each other seem destined to end up with each other (Disregarding exceptions such , spoiler alert, as Romeo and Juliet or west side story) at the end of the film. This, I think, is an underlined desire or viewers to see others in love and be able to empathize...

Re: CONSERVATION OF WATER THROUGH RAIN GARDENS

Hey Newton, am much great full on your topic knowing that am not the only one that is doing on such a topic. Conserving water is something that we all should be doing, as you have prefferd the use of rain gardens i will suggest you try the roof tops,Basically it catches rainwater and store it in underground or above ground tanks for later use. It can be a good method if only we make use of our knowledge to conserve rainwater during rainy seasons and store it to avoid the dry spells.

Hey Tiana! This 'Broaden Your Thinking' is fantastic! I love how you challenged yourself by taking two completely different topics and bringing them together like this. Your question, if people are happier when they dream, is a very interesting question.

Hi Aiswarya I totally agree with you that disabled people are so much more than their disability. I feel like not all people see them as part of society, they classify them as their own group.

Hi Aiesha! Interesting connection you made here regarding the physical disadvantages of beauty trends and how it affects their work. I find it fascinating how even now we still see a lack of female leaders around the world. Many aspects of a woman's life will impede her ability to climb up the workforce and pursue a daunting career. I also can't help relating this to Hilary Clinton's loss in the election, perhaps this really proves we're not ready for a female leader. Moreover, were female...

Hi Yasmin! There have been some studies done that show that, on average, people who removed meat and dairy products were happier and less depressed than those who retained it, so you may have a point there. However, there are many other factors that contribute to our overall well-being, such as exercise and the constant demand for productivity in our society, so making the change to plant-based protein alone may or may not be enough. As for the environmental rewards, the benefits of going...

What an interesting idea, Rhea. This reminds me of an article I read by Elsevier applied animal behaviour science. I looked it up again and found this helpful line: "Most kennel owners and veterinarians prefer women assistants because these animalcule professionals assume that women elicit less avoidance from domestic animals than men." While obviously this article does not claim that women elicit less violence from animals, it shows that people think women elicit less violence from animals.

Re: Broaden your thinking - Personality and politics

Amanda Tummonds (Charles Best) ·
Hey Jessica, You do bring up some good points with these questions, and I do truly believe that your personality plays a key role in politics. When comparing extroverted leaders with introverted ones, would it be possible to have a leader with both extroverted and introverted personality traits? If so would that leader be more appealing to the diverse voters, like the US? Just some more questions to think about, but I really like these two topics together!

Will there still be establishments and actual people interacting face to face while learning or, like you mentioned before, will it all be virtual and perhaps more isolating than it is now?
