Hey everyone, Because of the end of the semester rapidly approaching, I'm condensing the rest of my inquiry into this round of research. I will look into anxiety and depression: researching what they are, why they are common among students, and their impacts on performance at school. Anxiety WHAT IS IT? Anxiety disorders are mental illnesses, the feeling of an intense emotion inside of us that we cannot seem to control, our body's physical response, and they come in different forms.

People with insomnia can feel dissatisfied with their sleep and usually experience one or more of the following symptoms:...Read More...

"What are the controversial aspects of using animals for research purposes?" There will be two conclusions in this post: one will be objective and drawn from factual evidence, and the other will be opinionated and most likely contain biases Objective Conclusion There are many advantages and disadvantages to animal testing, which makes the topic extremely controversial. Using animals such as dogs, cats, and cows has been traced back to early history, as far back as 384 BC. Their utilization...Read More...

Hey everyone! This is my last research round for my inquiry: "What are the controversial aspects of using animals for research purposes?" If you're new to my inquiry, these were my previous three rounds of research: -Round 1: The history of animal testing - early history (Aristotle), opposition (Cruelty to Animals Act), and modern history (Frederick Banting) -Round 2: The purposes of testing on animals and which animals are used - dogs, cats, non-human primates, rodents, etc. -Round 3:...Read More...

This week, thanks to some helpful feedback I received in the beginning of my inquiry, I will be looking into different companies that test on animals, for what reasons they do so, and what their animal testing policies are. Companies that Test on Animals Maybelline -This company does test their products on animals, it is not a cruelty-free brand. Maybelline retails their products in China, and this country requires that all imported items be tested on animals. Therefore, since this company...Read More...

Survey Update

Juliana Nunes (Charles Best)
Thank you to everyone who took my survey! I just wanted to let you guys know that all of the companies I listed use or have used animals for testing their products. This may come as a surprise for some of you, because I noticed that the numbers did range a lot for each company. Some of the most shocking ones (for me) were Calvin Klein, Band-Aid, and Downy. Anyways, thanks to all of those who participated and I hope you learned something new :) the source I used : ...Read More...

RR2 - Animal Testing

" What are the controversial aspects of using animals for research purposes ?" Following the short history introduction from my last research round which outlined the early and recent history of using animals for research purposes, I plan on building on the concept of animal research and providing more information on these purposes. I will explain what animals are used, how they are tested upon, and what conclusions can be drawn from their use. Purposes of Animal Testing To study disease :...Read More...

Hey Butterfly Effect, I posted a survey and I would greatly appreciate it if you took two minutes to fill it out! It's asking what companies use animals to test their products, so all you need to do is click the companies you believe do so.

Hi everyone, I am really looking forward to begin my research and be able to share with you all the controversies of this topic, but for this week I am focusing on introducing the fundamental information of animal testing. This means looking into the history, including how and when it began, who first developed the idea and why or for what purposes they chose to do so. To reinstate, my question is: "What are the controversial aspects of using animals for research purposes?" EARLY HISTORY...Read More...

Hello everyone, For this cycle, I will be focusing on the purposes of using animals for research and how this concept is controversial. Since I post every other week, the information will be thoroughly divided into 3 rounds of research. Round 1 In this post I will look into the history of the use of animals for research, how and why it all began, who first developed the theory/idea, and why they developed it or for what purposes. This week mainly focuses on a backstory, an introduction to...Read More...

How are different sports beneficial/detrimental to certain body types?

Last week, I went into a bit of a side topic: injuries and physiotherapy. Today's post will also be a side topic, building on last week's. I will focus on dietary aspects of this research. This means the diets of professional athletes vs those that aren't professional, and compare the...Read More...

"How are different sports beneficial/detrimental to certain body types?"

Now that you all have an idea of what each activity is like, I am going to be focusing on the athlete's body for the three sports. I will compare the ideal body type to the unideal, and state whether the sport is beneficial or detrimental to...Read More...

Firstly, as mentioned in my project plan, I will be looking into three different sports. I want to state some information on each sport to give you all an idea of what it is, how you play it, the history, and what is required from each person physically and emotionally who plays it (at a higher rank).

Project Plan C5

Juliana Nunes (Charles Best)
"How are different sports beneficial/detrimental to certain body types?" For this cycle, I will be looking into something very different than what I have before. I have talked about genetics, animals, school, etc and I am very excited to analyze sports as I am very fascinated by them and their impacts on our bodies. So, I will be dividing this project plan essentially into four posts that I will be publishing every second week: WEEK 1: Introduction -This post will be more in-depth so I want...Read More...

Hey guys! The project I am now starting is very different from the previous cycles where I have looked into education, animal abuse, and the meaning of mankind.
