Re: EVOLUTION OF THE HUMAN COLUOR

Amos Muriithi (Thome) ·
Yeah, a good job you are doing there.Your progress is quite commendable. I, would suggest to you to also look at other factors that may result to change in human color. Such factors include the climatic condition of a place where one lives. For example the climatic conditions of Africa and those of Europe are not the same and this could be a possible source of color variation between Africans and European. Now you would continue to look at other such factors that could possibly lead to color...

A good work you are doing there Onesmus, keep it up because its actually very nice for somebody to understand the true biology and the origin of his or her skin.

Good start Onesmus. If you want to delve further, perhaps you could look at genetic mutations and how they can alter skin colour (among other things) drastically, even in one's own kids. Below is a link that may help you with your project. http://evolution.berkeley.edu/...ews/140305_skincolor

Re: EVOLUTION OF THE HUMAN COLUOR

Skin colour is a form of continuos variation, it has lots of intermediates. This is also the case with some other human traits like height. I think, to understand the evolution of skin colour, you must first know about the history of the human skin colour. Do you think that there was another pigmentation that was present in early humans but was selected against hence its disappearance? You really should look into the history of the human skin colour. Back to what you want to look into next,...

Re: EVOLUTION OF THE HUMAN COLUOR

This is a cool topic, as it is a very prevalent thing nowadays to have different shades of skin color. It is interesting to see how that happens, and why.

Re: Interviews Part 1: Chimpanzees

This is quite some good research.Am amazed! Chimps are very identical to man and we share 98% of our DNA with them.It is important to note that we have the same origin as the chimps so it is very possible that we share some of our problems with them.On this note ,i wonder whether you would do a comparison even with organisms which we are somehow related.
Comment

Re: Interviews Part 1: Chimpanzees

Yes! You are absolutely right - and 98% is an awful lot of similarity. I like your idea about the comparison with other related (but not primate) organisms. I'll maybe look into it!

Nice work and research you pulled together,congratulations!i tend to think and agree with James on the relation of man and chimps,I was watching a documentary on their reactions ,way of living and thinking and realized just a small bit of humans is what they miss,what jogs my mind is whether a time will come for them to be as humans completely?

Re: Heroism - Updated Definition and Effects

Paige Hunter (LFAS-Alumni) ·
I disagree with your second definition of heroism. I think that a hero would be someone who FULLY acknowledges and accepts the risk to themselves, but contributes to the higher purpose in spite of the aforementioned risk.
Comment

Re: Evolution Project Continued

Good work! I really like the approach you took to this project before even starting research. Asking people's opinions can be a great way to build up some perspective before starting. I feel like there are lots of helpful guiding points that can be drawn from the conversations you had. For instance, natural selection was mentioned, as was continental drift, and selective pressure ("Each group of organisms adapted to different set of environmental conditions including man"). One question...

It would be interesting to see how people or youth look upon this question. Adolcents view their parents as the best people on earth "dad is a selfless hero" and "mom is a beautiful genius" does growing up with this mindset influence how we define it?

Re: Evolution Project Continued

My fellow Allan i can agree with your mum because as today we follow the biblical creation theory.the only thing that make us not to believe the biblical creation theory is that there are other people who are trying to kill it,and i promise you that they will not succeed in this compaighn.We only learn that a man evolved up to where he is now but it is not true.truly if a man realy evolved would he now look like the way he is?.

Re: Evolution Project Continued

Fadhili Katana (Alumni) ·
The evolution process to my opinion i think that the historians wanted us as students to follow their culture or they want us to have something to learn in schools so as we can make our life better in future.according to where i grew there was nothing like evolution the only first place to hear about it was school indeed in class eight . so in conclusion i dont think we evolve up to where we are now this is only rumors .

Re: Topic of interest - Religion

Christopher Spooner (Alumni) ·
I don't know of any websites, but I would say watch the first part of the film zeitgeist. If you can get over the kind of Consipracy/Condescending feel of the film it actually has a kind of cool summary of the concept of religion. It talks about how religion's inception was initially from the sun, and how religion has evolved after that. They do make an effort to convince you that religion is false so you would need to just look at the film from a strictly objective point of view.

Re: Evolutionary Biology - Interesting facts and concepts PART 2!

This is quite a great deal of information you've got there, I think you should study evolution just like Alison.Anyway,you've pointed out a lot of information and I just thought i would chip in and add some more- hope you don't mind- In natural selection there is quite a relevant example we are given during our evolution classes.It is about the peppered moths of Britain,before the industrial revolution there were two species of moths ,the white and the black one,the white ones enjoyed...

Interesting research. I think it'd be great to go over artificial selection in your research as well, due to that being a rather big part of many ecosystems, as sometimes humans import new species of animals into an ecosystem, causing change in the environment and food chain.

Re: Evolutionary Biology - Interesting facts and concepts PART 2!

Thanks for the cool research James - That's a really great example of natural selection. I'm definitely going to use it in the future.

Re: Evolutionary Biology - Interesting facts and concepts PART 2!

I appreciate the idea Josh! I think it's just a bit off from where I'm aiming with this, but I'm seriously interested in learning about that, so even if that idea doesn't show up my research I might just look into it in my own time

I love the way you break thing down and explain everything so carefully with images supporting your ideas, you make it so much easier for me to understand the whole concept of evolution! Great job Jess! There's just a question that's bothering me after reading your post: Why do some monkeys from years and years ago are still monkeys today but some of them slowly turn into humans? what determine them whether or not to change?
Comment

Re: Evolutionary Biology - Interesting facts and concepts PART 1!

Great question! And thanks for the feedback. That's nice to hear! Your question is actually explained in Part 2 of this, the post after it. I'd summarize it for you in this comment, but I actually think the second blog post is as summarized as it can get.

Re: EVOLUTION.ON-GOING RESEARCH

I will first commend you on the research you have done.It is quite substantial but you haven't still talked about the causes of the evolution.Can you prove scientifically that mans face in future years will be flattened.You have to support your argument and also take note that the Internet may be wrong And you should work with multiple sites.Evolution cannot be very predictable and can change its course as the days go by.Can you be able to show the likely outcomes if evolution took another...

Re: Heroism in High-Risk Careers

Audrey Heath (Charles Best) ·
Peoples instincts are to survive, so that they can mate and have offspring of their own. Once people have their own offspring there instincts are to protect them. I wonder what majority of the people who have these high risk jobs are parents because they want to help people just as if they were helping their own kind survive. Another point is would parents not have these high risk jobs, so that they could always be there for their children, with less chance of them dying. You can look at...

Re: Heroism in High-Risk Careers

Thanks for the comment Audrey! I think that's an excellent point. I think an integral part of heroism is surrounding this idea of protecting family - which I'll definitely be looking into!

Cool stuff, Jess! I like how you sourced your research so that the links were connected to particular statements. Are you only going to be interviewing police officers or will you be getting in contact with other members of the public service like firefighters, coast guard, search and rescue, etc?
Comment

Re: Heroism in High Risk Jobs - Questionnaire Analysis - Part 1

Hi Paige! Thanks for the comment - To answer your question, no, I don't think I will be interviewing other employees of high risk careers, although I'm not ruling it out. It would certainly be interesting to compare, but I have places I want to go with this project, and I think I've spent almost enough time on this segment of my project.

oh yea this post explain my previous question so well! I think I get it now. It's funny, I find that as the more I read about your research (the more I understand evolution) the more I realize how dark and ruthless the reality work. If one is not strong enough eventually it will die out, no matter how beautiful or amazing it is. I find this very hard to accept, because I don't really like the idea of only the "strong and successful one" get to survive, and the others eventually get...
