Re: BRAIN

Interesting topic. Keep going! I'm excited to see your research, because I've never thought about the brain development of smart animals. We always studied the complex human brain in school, but never compared to the one of an elephant for example.

Wow! This is really sweet and and intresting, according to my perspective I find human beings to be thinking differently from other animals, for instance no animal has the ability to critically think and make wise decision like as opposed to human being. But I still agree that other animal tend to be smart than others, but think differently.

It's so sad to see and hear of such numerous injustices to women,I think the reason behind it is that people are still holding on to their traditions and believes too much than they should,how to solve it?......by awareness and standing up for their rights just as theresa said,I stand by justice for women not matter what!

Re: INJUSTICES

Gender equality is of utmost importance in the society we live in today.This is a very contentious issue since it deals with a peoples culture.It is very hard to get the type of gender equality that runs through peoples minds but at least we should try an come near to being an ideal community.Gender discrimination must not reach to the levels of violence and manslaughter,that is against the universal human rights. Any practice of this must be done away with whether the states constitution...

Re: INJUSTICES

i think that the issue of gender inequality is something that will never cease to happen because in the society take for example in the Kenyan communities earlier the boy child for example was the one being favored by all, it was even considered better to take them to school and not as girl.but as time went by u find that the opposite happened so am thinking that in future they will fight for the rights of a boy child next girl child so practical there is nothing much we can do about it.......

I believe that people are changing! although equality had always been a big issues in the world we live in. People tend to get stock in the believes they were taught when they were a kid. However today in a lot of countries people are smart enough to realize the important character woman plays in the society, and this is a very good demonstration for the countries that are still struggling to understand. I believe by having the positive influence, it won't take long for everyone to realize...

Since his action of giving his life for the Hive is the pinnacle of the story, do you have any ideas as to what the situation will be to facilitate this? I know natural disaster, but what will cause him to need to sacrifice his life?

So, first of all, to address the caste system, a contradiction arises. Collectivism and, by extension communism, in its purest form is supposed to function as the complete opposite, at least in Marxism-Leninism. However, the Marxist/Leninist model does not work when talking about Hymenopterans (Wasps, etc.) or most colonial/eusocial animals for that matter. A rather infamous caste system, one that may work for your film, is that of the Chamorro people of Guam, an island in the West Pacific.

Re: Grant Application

Paige Hunter (LFAS-Alumni) ·
I like that you changed the reason for the main character's survival to not be strictly a chance machinery malfunction but a conscious decision, which gives the project a more interesting lead. One thing though: Why do the scientists/leaders of the extra-terrestrial colonization choose not to terraform the planet of choice? I know that it makes for more unique character designs, but would it not make less work to alter a planet once rather than genetically alter the entirety of humanity? Try...

Re: Grant Application

Flora Xia (Alumni-LFAS) ·
Well in my mind at least, terraforming the new planet would take more time. The journey from Earth to this new planet would take light years. During this period, the humans that are on board the ship are in a form of cryo-sleep/ metamorphosis and they emerge on the new planet as a new species. It saves time and resources in the sense that it is a 1 time thing. To change the entire ecosystem of a planet would not only take a lot of time it would also expend a lot of energy.

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

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.

Re: ENQUIRY QUESTION/HUMAN EVOLUTION

Grace Yang (Alumni-LFAS) ·
Looking back a million years towards our ancestors could be a good tool in predicting what will be a million years into the future. For example, if about a million years ago our ancestors built boats that took them away from Asia, we could compare their boats to our airplanes or spaceships. Then, if you imagine everything in relative proportion, the colonization of our solar system and further space travel could be compared to the trek out of Asia. Maybe in a million years, the human race...

Re: The Burn: week 8 cycle 2

It's hard to say how the human race will evolve without knowing what will change in the future. Just like anything else on this planet we will have to adapt to survive, either that or die off.

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?

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: Hive Mind

Paige: This was a concept learned by humans after the destruction of the Earth. Adaptation to a perfectly functioning society felt like a better choice for the fate of humanity. Desi: Thank you! I think some brief backstories will be explained but I don't want all of this film to be backstory so there will probably only be enough information in the film for the audience to grasp the general concept.

Re: Hive Mind

Paige Hunter (LFAS-Alumni) ·
Interesting how instead of modifying the new planet to suit their needs, the humans modify themselves to suit the planet. Would this be because of a lesson learned by the human race after the destruction of Earth, or was that just something that happened to fit into the plot/concept better?

Wow! this is very impressive and very well thought out, well done! I really love the theme of rebirth as well as the discussion of collectivism vs individualism. Are you planning to explain the whole end of earth and evolution of humanity thing in your short film? Or are you planning to just introduce this new race of wasp-human hybrids on their new planet from the start?

Re: NEW PROJECT . HUMAN NATURE: TERRORISM

I think that this is a great question especially after what has been happening all over the world lately. Between the Paris shootings, all the war and unrest, and the shooting in San Bernardino, I think it will be interesting to see why they do it. Do they think they have nothing left to live for? Are they doing for their beliefs? Or do they simply like how it makes them feel? I think you will be able to find many interesting things on this. Good luck!

Re: NEW PROJECT . HUMAN NATURE: TERRORISM

With the recent events in Paris and other various places, this is something I and a lot of other people probably wonder. Why? Especially because innocent people are being endangered, injured, and killed. What are terrorists thinking when they do commit these acts. Sometimes they even kill themselves, trying make a point. These people need to be helped. I'm sure to them it is a good reason and they are trying to make a point but when does it end. Also, if you don't have a reason and just do...

Re: Hive Mind Entry 1 05.12.2015

Your drawings are looking amazing! Details such as the 'dripping' from the mushroom are really quite beautiful, and reminiscent of the overall feel of your story. For the naming of the species, I think I can help you out. Most animals are typically named using binomial nomenclature. To sum it up, the name is composed of two parts (hence the 'bi'), the first of which is the genus it belongs to, and the second a word (typically latin, though it doesn't have to be) that differentiates that...

Re: WHY IS AFRICA CONSIDERED AS THE CRADLE OF HUMAN KIND?

When I first read your question I thought about Pangaea, and then you talked about it so I think that is an important note. This is why one species of an animal might be only found in 2 place, but totally different continents, because they were once connected. Here is a link about why Pangaea broke apart https://www.google.ca/amp/amp....a.html?client=safari This is really cool good luck!
