Cycle 4 - Research Round 4: The Life Cycle of the Soviet Union

For my last round of this shortened cycle, I'll be focusing on a relatively recent global superpower. This nation is interesting, considering it has its roots within anti-imperialism. It is also one of the only nations where communist theory (in some form) has been practiced. Before I start, these are the 6 cycles within Glubb's system that I'll be using: The Age of Pioneers (Outburst) The Age of Conquests The Age of Commerce The Age of Affluence The Age of Intellect The Age of Decadence The...

Wow this is really cool, do you think that we are able to predict the fall of a superpower now, and if so, when do you think the US, will fall? Thanks, Seth

Re: Research

Cool research. Do you think that you are going to focus on only the health aspects of owning dogs, or are you going to branch out into other areas?

Re: Research

This is some really interesting research! I like that you made two separate posts, one focusing on the health benefits and the other focusing more on the mental benefits of having a dog. I'm looking forwards to seeing what else you find out about this topic.

Commendable research,on the health benefits of having a dog I think it depends on the level of cleanliness one has,on the mental benefits one can have a dog that is kind of a friend which can relieve on mental stress,look forward to ,ore of your findings

Re: Upcoming Research

I really liked your past research and presentation on dystopias and utopias. An idea that I got while reading this post was if you could search up random cities around the world and see if that city would be more compatible for a utopia or dystopia. I guess it is more based on your own opinion than actual facts but I think that it would be really cool. I'm looking forward to your future posts

I don't believe their are any truly dystopic or utopic areas anywhere in the world. You could be in a city with a 80% crime rate and a death rate of 100 people a day. But there is still that 20% or their will be that one person who is different. I do get what you are saying though with places that have dystopic or utopic characteristics. Many places could look one way compared to the other, but I don't think 100%. This is a really cool topic. Can't wait to see what you find out. Good Luck!

Upcoming Research

A week or so ago, I posted my celebration of learning, and I just posted my Metamorphasis. For those of you who don't know, my project was on Dystopias and Utopias in the real world. I found many interesting facts and stories that I had no idea were happening. Anyways, I have decided to continue on the same path as I was taking the last part of my project, but in a slightly different direction. I was thinking maybe more in depth as to how dystopias and utopias look in real cities, more the...

If you didn't know, my question is why do people own dogs. This is some research that I have found. This research is more health related. 1. They can detect cancer. Dogs have a excellent sense of smell. They can sniff out what is going on inside our bodies. Dogs have also been known to lick or sniff moles or lumps on human bodies that are cancerous. 2. They can detect seizures before they happen. Research has shown that certain dogs are able to warn seizure patients that they are going...

Re: Research round #1(Cycle 4)- Resiliency

Hi Rhea, great round of research. I really enjoyed how it was organized and easy to follow along. This is a great topic and I can't wait to see your next round of research on how genes might be connected to resilience. Here's a link that might help: http://developingchild.harvard...concepts/resilience/ Good luck!

Re: Research round #1(Cycle 4)- Resiliency

Hi Rhea, I thought your research was very good and the template you used to write your research round was very clear and easy to read. I love your topic because it's original. I feel as if your topic allows me and other members of the butterfly effect to really comprehend the importance of mind control and how genetics can be linked with resilience. Great work so far! Good luck

Research- Round 1

Hi everyone! Here is our question and our first round of research. Our question is : Are women actually more creative/artistic than men, or is it a thought that has been influenced by society? Has society/family/media taught men that being artistic/creative is not good? Are there simply different standards for women in art? If it is true that women are more creative than men, why? Is it something in a woman's brain? However, many years ago, men were the only artists, such as da Vinci and...

Hey everyone! My question is "Why are some people more resilient than others?" This round of research, I''ll look at why are some people just naturally more resilient. People who are more resilient are capable of adapting to misfortune.. Resilient people can manage the difficulty of going through trauma. Obviously no one is going to be okay if something traumatic happens but just being upset and not trying to help yourself isn't the solution. (1,4) These are different levels of emotional...

Project Plan (Cycle 2)

In my last cycle I looked at how changes to terrestrial environments could effect marine ecosystems and vice versa. And while I was happy with how my research went I felt that I was covering to much at once to get a deeper understanding of the subject. I just simply couldn't cover everything in a way that felt organized and concise. In my later research posts I began to focus more on the topic of coral reefs, and as such I believe that focusing this cycle there would be in my best interests.

So my topic is about resiliency. This week, I'll be looking into resiliency itself. Basically an introduction to resiliency. This is my first round of research for this cycle and a completely new topic, so I thought it would only be ideal to get to know about resiliency itself. Resiliency is the ability to bounce back after something traumatic happens in your life, for an example, the loss of someone important in your life or a break up. It's basically your ability to move on.(1,2) Here are...

Is there a formula to creating a meaningful relationship?: Research Round 1

A meaningful relationship is a relationship based upon mutual respect and supportiveness and marked by a sense of commitment and fulfillment . (1) But what does that really mean?

This research is just wow. I have never thought of really anyone having this perspective on life. It is also quite true, but I think that may also be the point is that for us to live we need to give meaning to things. Else why live. Giving things meaning could be seen as survival, without it we have no need to live. I was looking at different religions, and this one really stood out. The church of Euthanasia. It seems fake, but I think it is legit. I don't know, just an idea.

Re: How will the world of electricity change in the future?

Hi Yihoi, I think your action is very well thought out. I like how you are going to compare your past electricity bills with the new one! Maybe during your third round of research, you could take a looks at using wind power plants to create more electricity while looking at what scientists are trying to do to make electricity better. Even though these are already being used today, this could possibly be a way to create more electricity in the future! Here is a link:...

Hi Taryn, I learned a lot from reading your post! I wonder if it's truly possible to fully attain nirvana? I think it would be wonderful to be free of all worries, troubles and ideas, yet it seems like it would be a difficult thing to attain completely. I guess that's why it's said "It is not comprehensible for those you have not attained it." Perhaps for your next round of research, you could do the Islamic point of view? Here's a couple of websites about that if you're interested.
