The Research - LFAS

I’m so sorry for being inactive on the site. I’m finally really getting into it and getting motivated so here we go. I would like to say that this week’s research was focused on a specific topic but honestly there was wide variety of things I looked into. That being said, I gathered a ton of information on plastic pollution in oceans and on land that I would like to bring light to. There are five major garbage patches floating in three of our five oceans. In order of smallest to largest,...Read More...

ROUND 2 For this round in my research, I wanted to gain more information on how accessible counselling and psychotherapy is to different kinds of people from different backgrounds, and why people choose not seek help even when the opportunity is very accessible to them. There are many different types of mental health care people can receive. In Canada, the average price and wait list of these are: Individual Therapy and Psychology: $100.00-200.00 per 60 minute session -...Read More...

Evolution Technology

Haley Mills (LFAS)
I am just going to write a summary of what I looked at this week and will use this for a round of research. Something interesting I have been looking at is the evolution of humans, how we evolved over thousand of years to fit our environment and how technology is influencing our evolution now. “Natural selection can take us on different paths to reach the same outcome: survival” (Max). People who lived at higher altitudes evolved to be able breath normally in those circumstances, where as if...Read More...

State your essential question Why you are interested in it What you already know (established knowledge) New knowledge (from 3 articles) What are the advantages and disadvantages of cybernetics? I find it to be a very interesting subject. Technology is advancing so quickly and I believe that is where our future is heading. It seems strange mixing humans with machine, but I think that is what I find interesting. I want to be able to understand how it works and how it is possible to do this. I...Read More...

Hello everyone! My project so far has definitely been fun but now it's the end of the cycle so goodbye for now! How had it impacted my thinking? I've learned to search for a lot of sides on an argument. People's stances on milk go from one extreme to another. Scientific studies have results that go from one extreme to another. Still, one should always make sure the research is well rounded and judged fairly. How will this investigation impact the decisions I make? While I'm not someone who...Read More...

Hello everyone! Last week I did a survey on what types of milk people drank. Of course pasteurized milk was in first, almond was in second, and soy was tied with raw as the third option (which is slightly concerning considering raw milk is illegal in North America). So for this round of research I looked into the most questionable of the bunch: raw milk. In 1862 a french scientist introduced the idea of pasteurizing milk, which uses heat to kill harmful germs like E.coli or Salmonella.Read More...
Hello everyone! For my first research round I chose to look into pasteurized cow's milk, and it's pros/cons. Let's start off with some history. Our ability to drink cow's milk is believed to derive from a northern European enzyme mutation. When settlers came to North America the mutation came too. However, drinking milk really got its popularity during and after WW1. Since it was relatively easy to produce, plus a calorie- and protein-rich food source , the government got more and more farms...Read More...
