Re: GOAT SCREAMS (media language learning or something)

This is really interesting. Not that I forget the word but going from French to English I will accidentally say something in French even if it is something basic like Hi or Thank you. When I am in an English class although people will know what I am saying, it wasn't what I meant to say. It is so cool the way you are learning Japanese. Can't wait to see what you learn next. Good Luck

I know literally nothing about dance except what I learned in primary school dance classes (which I have long forgotten) so it was interesting to read your burn, especially knowing you yourself are not a dancer. It was interesting to see your perspective on it.

She will be helping us start up our greenhouse in September.

Re: A quick lesson on Japanese pronunciation and writing systems

This is so weird because it seems so different from English. I would prefer the whole world just speak English. It would be so much easier. Learning a second language is hard, and some people learn multiple languages, which I find crazy. As much as I would like to be able to speak another language I just can't. I am taking French right now, and that is hard enough. It is weird how we can all be saying the same thing but it sounds so different to everyone.

It actually depends with some people as some will live to talk about their experience in their new visit to certain place or country,others may forget it very easily and continue leading their past normal life as if their visit was just for fun,here I guess it all depends with ones value in their cultural exchange.

Re: Burn- week 5

But how can we stop pitying them while they are in the streets begging for food and money?
Comment

Re: Burn- week 5

Taylor Testini (Alumni) ·
Feeling compassion and pitying someone are two different things. You can feel compassion for someone and want to help them. Pitying means that you feel sorry for them and think them beneath you. To pity someone is to put them down. To feel compassion is to express humanity.

I think if we treated the disabled people as equals it would be much better because some of them do not like to be pitied much but there others who use their conditions for other selfish purposes,by feeling compassion form for them and helping them out would be great too......

Re: Research 2: Green

Taylor Testini (Alumni) ·
I actually perceive some of the shades of green differently. For example, I associate lighter tones of green with sickness and puke and hospitals. I associate darker tones of green with peace, harmony, and nature. I wonder if hospitals using the light green colour has had an influence on perceiving light green as anything but peaceful and soothing. Can society's general association of the tones of green change depending on our surroundings? It might be interesting to conduct a survey asking...

Re: Science of Imagination

Desi Chek (Alumni-LFAS) ·
Imagination seems like something you can't quantify, but this this research seems to come close to it, which I find very interesting. You mentioned the line, " Our findings move us closer to understanding how the organization of our brains sets us apart from other species." Have you been able to find any studies where a similar process was applied to another species?

Re: My plan

Grace Yang (Alumni-LFAS) ·
Sounds like a great project Chelsea. Since you're doing research on cultural exchanges around the world, will your actual project be only between Kenya and Canada or will you expand on that? Obviously, you can't bring students to Canada from around the world, but it would be interesting if you could incorporate other cultures as well.

I've also noticed people complaining about the poor condition of the environment such as litter on the ground but refuse to pick up someone else's garbage because it's not theirs. I can see why they wouldn't want to pick it up but to complain about without doing anything to help or improve the problem is ridiculous.

Re: Learning a language with media-Inquiry

Desi Chek (Alumni-LFAS) ·
This is a really interesting inquiry. In really like your idea of using songs and shows to help you learn. It's a lot more fun than the ways they teach languages in school. Do you know any native Japanese speakers to help you practice? I've heard that having someone you can practice speaking with is one of the best ways to learn a new language.

I love that you burned this, Chelsea. I think it's super important for people to feel like their life can have diversity and still be successful. Do you know his full name? I'd love to look him up.

Wow Chelsea, this is a really great concept. I feel like many people, especially people our age, feel as though they have to get rid of all of their excess hobbies and only focus only on one thing (example: future careers, university major etc.) to have a successful life. It's for sure interesting and a little eye-opening to think about.

Re: Broaden Your Thinking

Juolin Lee (LFAS - Alumni) ·
Those are some very interesting questions. For me I believe the animals are more direct than human they will try to look after each other for the best of they could, simply because they believe that's what they should do it, not because what they could get out of it. However when it comes to life or death situation it will be necessary for them to abandon the animal with disability in the group to survive. This could be totally wrong it's just by personal believes.

I really love the video you made, I think it's really powerful and inspiring! I totally agree on you about how passion change over time, and I think it's really smart and brave of you to realize that and accept that, because it wouldn't be as fun as it used to be for doing the old project after you find a new passion. As you said the most important thing is what comes out from it, and you seems to know so much about elephant new, that is really cool. I am supper exciting to see what your new...

Re: Broaden Your Thinking

I wish to support Juolin ,animals are very caring and will do anything for their fellow animals but in the case of life and death they may choose to abandon it .One can consider this not only in elephants but also in other animals like lions and girraffes.I think the abilty to take care of fellow animals vary from animal to animal.I think it would be wise to extend your research on elephants and look into disability and how it affects them you could also ask for help from Moses.
Comment

Re: Broaden Your Thinking

This is a really interesting question Tayler... I understand that it's a broaden your thinking, but I'd love to see your research if you do look into this. I do agree with Juolin as well on this, but like I said, I'd love to see you look into this (or Moses).

Thats a good one!elephants have four[4] sets of teeth and during their older age the teeth shed off naturally and i find it a disability.They often die due to starvation and the other elephants cannot help the elephants in question.In the other side when an elephant is injured and unable to move for longer distance,the elephants in it's herd will always visit the injured elephant.Therefore being very caring.

Re: So I've been mulling over some questions

Hi Jenna! I think your question is an excellent choice, considering the importance of today's social media and the light on LGBTQ issues. I would like to know how this differs in various countries, such as, for example Canada and Kenya. Love to see more!

Re: RR1 How Tv Impacts the Developing Mind.

Hi Emily, This is a really interesting topic, I never knew that children as young as four months are being placed in front of a TV screen, or that the average child under the age of six watch four and a half hours of TV a day...shocking. Although you did mention at the end a positive point of watching television, I wonder if there are any more benefits to watching TV shows at a younger age. Here is a link that I hope will help you with your next round of research;...

Re: RR1 How Tv Impacts the Developing Mind.

Hi Emily, This is very interesting research. What do you think would be the difference of a child who watched tv since they were four months old and a child who has never watched tv? Would one be smarter, and the other not as educated? Would they behave differently, think differently? Would they react differently? Could one or the other have more of a chance of acquiring a disease?

Re: RR1 How Tv Impacts the Developing Mind.

This is a great post, Emily. It's interesting that videos classified as educational can have little or no effect on babies. Are there any requirements a video must fulfill to be classified as educational. If so, why are they so ineffective? Here is a study that might supplement your above research: http://journalsconsultapp.else.../articles/pedia5.pdf

Hi Emily! I, myself, was raised on tv from birth. Television wasn't made for education it was made for entertainment, people changed that to help children and for that reason I think your post is very interesting. I can't wait to hear more from you.

Hi Juolin, this is really a very interesting research. I really love the way you are presenting the idea of creativity in your presentation. I however think that it would be important if you corrected the few grammatical errors in your presentation. Good luck
