Hi guys it has been for a while since i posted but its because we had gone for our mid term holiday and our school is having some issues with the internet, but at least we are back on line even though the network is not yet strong enough some times there is internet signal some times there is no internet connection. Today I'm going to be checking at the relation of dugs and corruption because drugs and corruption work in one way like when one court selling drugs uses corruption to get out of...Read More...

Hello and welcome to my second round on the question “Based off of technology's past, present and theorized future advances, how could it change the world around us in the future?” I have decided that rather than answer any questions that arise in the last round, that I’ll change this round into an answering styled thingy. For now, we will simply do the ones that came up in the reply’s that match the idea of what we are looking into. For one there was Jim’s fantastic idea to look into...Read More...

The Science of Beauty My Objective:This project explores the scientific notion of human beauty. Project Goals find out how your brain decides what’s beautiful. Hi everyone! I have decided to focus on the same subject but go in a different direction now They say all kinds of things about human beauty. It’s “in the eye of the beholder.” It’s “only skin deep.” “Looks don’t matter.” But cliches such as these do very little to cushion the harsh reality that how “beautiful” we think we are really...Read More...

Does being vegetarian help animals and is it a sustainable way to live your life? - project plan

Many of my friends who are vegetarian claim that the reason they are is because they love animals or because they want to save animals. So that got me thinking. I love animals, so for a minute I wanted to become vegetarian. But then I thought about it some more, and I asked myself what effect me being vegetarian would have on animals? And what would I be saving them from? And what effects would it have on me? I thought all of these were good questions, so I decided to base my inquiry...Read More...

Inquiry Plan Based off of technology's past, present and theorized future advances, how could it change the world around us in the future? The idea of this question came to me when I was getting pissed at my computer yesterday due to its low ram and how it tended to slow down a lot when running a virtual machine cause it would take 4gb’s of the ram and allocate all of it to the virtual machine cutting the already low 8gb’s down to 4gb’s. But that’s not from where the question came, the...Read More...

Hi everyone! I'm really excited to be back doing Butterfly Effect and I look forward to starting my upcoming inquiry project. This past year, I have been volunteering at a salmon hatchery (Hoy-Scott Watershed Society) and I've had a lot of great opportunities to meet people and discover a different part of the community I live in. For this cycle, I will be posting about the function of the hatchery, its importance, and what kinds of experiences I've had since I started interning there. My...Read More...

Hi everyone! For the new cycle, I plan to continue on with the same question as before. My inquiry question is: " How should government funding be used for the prevention of wildfires? " As a recap, my first round of research covered information about wildfire causes, factors and how they work. My second round of research was about both the negative and positive effects wildfires can have on vegetation and wildlife. My third round of research was about the impact of wildfires on soil and...Read More...

Effect of condition of pregnancy on child development Round 4

So in this post, I will be talking (or well writing) about how the mother’s voice impacts the fetus, and how the baby could start learning in the womb. As I explained in my last post, fetuses can hear pretty well in the womb (comparing to thinking they can’t hear at all) but now research suggests that they can understand sounds too. This topic is highly debated because we still don’t know if humans are born being able to understand speech or if we have to learn it afterwards, but I want to...Read More...

Effect of condition of pregnancy on child development Round 3

Going on to more research about pregnancies, I wanted to find out how certain parenting techniques affect the child while still in the womb. So I’m going to look into music. Babies in the womb can actually hear the sounds near their mother at around 16-17 weeks gestation. (0) They can easily detect vowels and rhythmic patterns, but can’t recognize consonants and overtones. (1) At 33 weeks gestation, fetuses can breathe in time to music. By week 38, when listening to various types of music,...Read More...

Hi everyone?today i will be checking at illegal drugs from plants just like i had promised and i'm going to start with Penicillium mold (penicilli The mighty, moldy world changer. It was the first drug to effectively combat bacterial infections, leading to cures of an untold number of afflictions, from strep to syphilis. It was discovered accidentally by Alexander Fleming in 1928. He forgot about a petri dish filled with staph bacteria he'd left out, and he discovered blue green penicillin...Read More...

Hi everyone! For this cycle of research, I’ll be keeping my inquiry question from last cycle “Why do we dream?” Last cycle, the biggest things I looked into was what a dream actually is and all the different types, what actually happens in your body and brain while you dream, different sleep disorders and how they affect your dreams and sleep, and mental illnesses and what affect they could have on your dreams. So for this cycle, in brief, I want to compare dreaming in adults versus children...Read More...

Hello Everyone! For my next cycle, I will be looking into technology, it’s past, where it may go in the future and what it could do for us in the future. Actual Question: Based off of technology's past, present and theorized future advances, how could it change the world around us in the future? Technology nowadays rules our lives. We have our phones wherever we go and most of our work is done on a laptop or computer, but it wasn’t always like this; in fact, computers when they first were...Read More...

Hello everyone, For my next research cycle this year, I am going to look into a little about love. This cycle, I hope to cover: What love is (why it occurs, what causes people to "fall in love") Different symptoms of love (how we can control these symptoms, what love does to the brain/one's personality/actions, how they differ from person to person, if we can fool ourselves into thinking we're in love) The age "minimum" for love (can children be heartbroken?) Personal experiences (is love...Read More...

Hello everyone! For my second inquiry project of this school year, I decided to investigate the connection between intelligence and education. As a result, my question is: "How is education connected to intelligence and success?". Intelligence and success are both challenging areas to study and are both intriguing topics. This is because that they can be defined and measured in various ways. What got me hooked on this subject was when my Français 9 class was reading this true story about a...Read More...

Hey everyone, I'm back at Butterfly Effect for the second semester! It's awesome to finally be able to research topics I'm interested in again. In fact, I was reading through an article that one of my online teachers assigned and came across the topic of homeopathy, and I was extremely intrigued by the topic. I looked further into the subject, specifically researching acupuncture, but wanted to look more into the extensive area of homeopathic medicine. So, after some thought, I came up with...Read More...

I have heard many different ways technology has positivity and negativity affect many teenagers around the world and ultimately my goal for...Read More...

Inquiry question

Catherine Eckman (Charles Best)
With this new generation should we be changing how and what we are teaching in school? I chose this question because schooling is something that affects all kids, and it seems like adults ask everyone else what they think accept the kids. Don't you think that if kids had a bit of a say about some of the things we were learning we would be more interested and invested in school? This topic let's me explore the different teaching ways, what we should be learning, how we should be teaching...Read More...
Hi everyone, It’s been a while since I posted, but for this post I will be focusing on what is happening in your brain when you are being creative. There is no part of the brain related specifically to creativity. In the past many people thought that logical thinking uses the left side of your brain and creative and innovative thinking uses the right, but recently scientists have realized that might not always be true. New research has revealed that creative thinking can be determined by how...Read More...

Effect of condition of pregnancy on child development

I will continue to cover more things on my previous research, about what to eat, how to sleep, how to exercise while pregnant and how it can affect the child. Eating Some foods are recommended not to be consumed while pregnant due to the high chance of being contained with harmful bacteria. (1) These include: * Raw fish, high-mercury fish * Under cooked/raw/processed meat * Organ meat * Raw or under cooked eggs * Unpasteurized milk products, soft cheeses * Unpasteurized juices * Raw sprouts...Read More...

Effect of condition of pregnancy on child development

Hi peeps! I’m doing my project on babies because I’ve always wondered if every little detail matters as to raising a child, especially during pregnancy. Wouldn’t it be great if we could find out how to perfectly raise a child to our fancy? (It actually might be a good thing that we can’t, yet). My previous knowledge is that women aren’t supposed to use drugs, alcohol, or smoke cigarettes during pregnancy but I never knew why. I also knew that they shouldn’t exercise or have hot baths. Well...Read More...

My Inquiry- What effects Canadian views of the United States of America? Ever since moving to Canada from the U.S., I have been curious as to why America gets so much backlash, especially from Canada. It seemed like, all of the sudden, I was lesser just because I was born in the United States, and felt as if my side story weren't being given any thought. Starting off, I wanted to look into what effects societies' views on multiple things. I already knew that media is a huge factor in how...Read More...

In recent months, I've become more aware of how the things we use in our daily lives affect our local and global environment. Millions of tons of plastic are dumped into the oceans every year. There is now plastic and micro plastics in all areas of the world; even those that are uninhabited. Plastics are penetrating our ecosystems and causing mass destruction to coral reefs in the Pacific Ocean. "Marine litter harms more than 600 species amid what some regard as the beginning of the sixth...Read More...
