@Flora Xia ,what motivates people to corruption is Delayed payments-this comes in when a person is at the end of the month and not many people are patient to wait for long without anything in their pocket. Small amount of money at the end of the month when they a payed,that is another reason that makes people motivated to corruption Greed and to get rich quickly out of peoples work

Re: METARMOPHOSIS:TERRORISM

Wow it seems like you have a lot of great information! What you said about terrorists using the media is true. Acts of terrorism were very different before social media and media and was big. Now, not only can everyone in the area where the act was committed be affected, but also anyone online who sees a video, or some sort of footage of the attack. Now with one act of terrorism you can send the whole world in panic which is a very scary thing. Great research!

Re: POVERTY IN KENYA(WAYS IN WHICH PEOPLE TRY TO KILL IT)

Poverty is a topic that brings me sadness because I can't make much of a difference by myself. Your post (which I really enjoyed reading) informed me about a few things that I did not know about poverty in Kenya. For your question about teenagers getting into alcohol, I found this article online https://www.ncadd.org/about-ad...prevention-for-youth good luck with your future research

Re: POVERTY IN KENYA(WAYS IN WHICH PEOPLE TRY TO KILL IT)

Hi Denis, cool article that you found. In my planning class we were just talking about alcoholism and drug abuse. We had some people from Alcoholics Anonymous come in to our class to talk about their personal experiences with alcohol and how they got into drinking. Overall, it was a way for them to cope with the problems they were facing in their life whether it was PTSD or depression.

I once did the pit latrine digging and I can admit its the hardest task I ever did.Recalling the experience,I feel sad for those ladies if poverty have pushed them to that extend. I agree with you about alcoholism being a contributor to poverty.Many are the times I walk through our ghettos and see a big number of drunk people.This leaves me wondering,'are we comfortable in our current positions' Its good that you are acknowledging alcoholism as a contributor to poverty.Nice work Denis.

Another cause Chege is lack of jobs which is brought about by low level of education.So as you consider other factors this is one great problem to consider.

That is encouraging since those women are doing their best no matter what,but there also other ways in which Kenya is infested by poverty, such as high taxation of citizens any idea on how to kill it and save Kenya? Looking forward in your next research

That is a very interesting article i think that nowadays women are empowered to do any sorts of work and this helps in decreasing the level of poverty in Kenya.Teenagers trying to take alcohol its a normal part of life.some do it in order for them to fit in a certain peer group or try to prove themselves worth.I think parents should act out as good role models towards their children and maybe this might help in reducing the cases of teenage alcoholism.

Re: Agriculture Education: Research (week 5)

Mr. Mburu (Admin) ·
You're right. The agriculture classes normally cover the theory which is translated into practical skills in the farm. Ordinarily this would be the best approach. .. we're it not for shortage of time versus a bloated quantity of curricula to be covered. In your country, it looks like agriculture is handled like a snack! Meanwhile it's really not the amount of work covered but how thorough it has been covered. Both ways, there are merits so I would urge that it's handled as recommended by...

Re: Ongoing Reflection

Mr. Mburu (Admin) ·
You have embarked on a truly ambitious and practical undertaking. I'm excited on the fact that you seem to have looked at a basic agricultural concept of efficient water management. The soils in Laikipia are rich in nutrients which have least been tapped. The major huddle however is the behavioural pattern of rainfall which is poorly spread, unreliable and usually lower in amounts. This calls for short season crops and those that can withstand recurrent long drought seasons. The major...

I also wonder how can a student learn without doing practical activities?Any way you can not blem for the government because it is a tradition.If the government will accept your idea then it could be a very good thing for the students.For us in Kenya we don't only relay on curriculum we also do farm activities.For example in the exam the invigilator supervises the students in the farm in order to give them marks.This method enables the learners to acquire enormous skills.It teaches the...

This sounds like such a cool project! Some houses in India also have pipes that go from their sewage holding tank beneath their house.

Really cool project! I'm excited to see what conclusion you come to. In sounds like you need to refine your question a little bit. Is is for general public management of waste of personal management of waste? Is it Kenyan waste products that you want to focus on or a different country? Due to specific circumstances to each country, certain managements of waste are better than others for different countries. Was there one that you were hoping to focus on? Also, this information you posted...

Re: Ongoing Reflection

You have some very interesting findings. It is so cool that you were actually able to go to Kenya to have this experience. Most people only know what they read on the Internet or heard from a friend and you actually learned from your own experience and can understand it. I have never been there so my imagination of it can be way different than what it actually is. Comparing Canadians to Kenyans can teach us so much. Imagine if we didn't have phones, people would actually talk to each other...

Re: Ongoing Reflection

Hi Theresa Am glad to see the trip to Kenya had such a profound impact on your world view. Absence of this in my opinion is one of the main courses of cultural misunderstanding among peoples. Am sure the Kenyan students also learnt a great deal from interacting with you in a small way and that these small networks will continue to foster cultural understanding.

I loved your question at the beginning.

Great project, I actually did one on poaching last year, so if you have any questions, feel free to ask. I would love to help. Just wondering, but what exactly is your inquiry question? Are you concentrating just on the Ol Pejeta Conservancy, or just on Kenya or in other countries as well?

Re: CORRUPTION.

Corruption and Bribery is not okay. The rich prospering being able to pay to get whatever they want and the poor at a disadvantage. Everyone deserves a fair trial, equal learning opportunities, and everyone should have a voice. I am interested to see where this question takes you and what you find out.
Comment

Re: CORRUPTION.

This is a really powerful post, and while corruption may not be good what you are saying is definitely true. I think that corruption plays a certain role everywhere in the world. In some place it is more prominent than others, but none the less it is still there. It's so unfair that the less fortunate do not have the same opportunities just because of the size of their wallet. This is an amazing topic that you have taken on and I wish you the very best!
Comment

Re: CORRUPTION.

Great post and moving topic. I have never really thought about corruption and its effect in B.C. let alone Kenya. It is definitely a problem that needs to be addressed by people, favoritism and bribery need to be stopped. I hope that you project goes well, best of luck.

I love how involved this project is. Not only are you reaching out to surrounding communities in order to complete your research, but you are actually partnering up with the Ol Pejeta Conservancy and aiding them in this massive issue. Researching the societal attitudes towards poaching is the first step to creating awareness. Your survey is also very detailed, with ample space for the individual's opinions. Looking forward to seeing how your research has gone in the future
