A good project there while trying to understand more about the brain. May be you would check on the issue of what happens for a person to run mad. otherwise, its quite a commendable work you are doing there.
The brain is such a fascinating organ, and your question is really interesting. I don't know if you want to explore this area of the brain, but this is a link talking about if people with bigger brains are smarter. It might not be what you are looking for, but it might help your project a bit. https://neuroscience.stanford....ain-make-you-smarter
The coffins look less pop-can + straw and more über spacey modern death trap canister, which is good. It's interesting how the film process hasn't been nearly as difficult for you as the managing and coordinating of people. I would imagine that this film is actually more difficult to produce than a studio-run professional animation, as you are totally dependent on volunteers. Even though a feature-length involves far more people, the production team is solely devoted to making the film and...
Do you have specific resources (web sites, books, etc.) that you got your information from? It's helpful if you list them at the end of your posts. Also, what is your inquiry question for this project?
Really good research! Its interesting to see all the different ways that people started using agriculture. It might be interesting to compare and contrast the different styles and techniques that they used some 10,000 years ago against our current day techniques.
This is really a nice project, am looking forward to see your next post, agriculture is such a broad topic to work on, I would love you to look at how agriculture has revolved in the past years. I also can't wait wait to see how you will research on the difference between how farming is carried out in Kenya and how it's carried out in Canada
Wow great research! Glad to see that you are making so much progress. I think that brains can be different sizes (I know this from watching doctor TV shows). I think what is more important than the size of the brain as a whole, is the size of each part of the brain. Scientists can see smaller areas of the brain where compassion and remorse is in serial killers. I wonder if the size of your brain affects your intelligence. My sister used to say that she was smarter than me because she has a...
It's worth reading some work around aesthetics, which is the philosophical study of beauty and taste. There are some papers on Stanford's website that are worth looking at. I also highly recommend listening to the BBC podcast "What is Beauty." There are a large number of questions that are worth asking on the subject of beauty in general. It's also worth noting that cosmetic surgery can be addictive, there are probably some documentaries on the subject lying around the net.
On the subject of risk taking and your final questions, people who have more at stake that they could gain from a situation won't take risks. That's a bit confusing, so let's put it into a medical situation that is easier for me to talk about for various reasons: Say someone is put into a life or death situation, such as a stroke. That person is unable to make decisions for themselves. Therefore, the responsibility of that life is put into the hands of a close family member or guardian. A...
I tend to agree with you on that,in kenya there were incidences of people pretending to be disabled in order to get help from people so not many would trust the disabled anymore,another thing is exploitation by the rich people who would swallow the money allocated to the disabled so they remain poor and in difficult situations!
shoot, I accidentally clicked the wrong one on the question "would you talk about it and share this knowledge with friends and family?" I don't know how it went with no, but it was the last option (if it came up in conversation) that I wanted. Just thought I'd let you know for research purposes.
Do you think that indigineous culture and individual identity is as important today as it was half a century ago? I would say that coorporate identity will surpass nationality at a certain point. Saying that you prefer Apple or Android can say more about you personallyt than if you were from Canada or America. As a race we are moving towards an intensely globalized culture. Do you think the sacrifice of indigenous cultures is worth the prize of this 'oneness'?
This is really interesting, and the conference that you're planning sounds great: ) When you say youth do you mean exclusively indigenous youth or youth in general? Really excited for where this project goes! Good luck: )
So far it sounds really interesting. Desi and I are willing to help you out with whatever you need. I know you haven't finished your post yet but I was wondering what you're hoping to achieve through the cultural conference? I haven't been at the Friday meetings either so it could just be me, but what is you general goal for the whole thing?
So, looking into this a tiny bit, I found the dictionary definition of 'indigenous', provided by Merriam-Webster: "Produced, growing, living, or occurring naturally in a particular region or environment." So, I suppose, technically everyone born in Canada is, in fact, indigenous to Canada. Recently, I also read a short essay by Chief Dan George (admittedly not by choice, but by Sachar's choice) based around letting go of purely First Nations culture, and integrating his native culture in...
I think the importance of learning indigenous cultures is;for example in many African cultures ,when somebody want to marry,it is significant to be aware of matters concerning dowry and other matrimonial ceremonies.
This topic has always enthralled me and I'm very excited to see where your research will take you. The realm of dreams and the unconscious mind is one of relatively sparse scientific knowledge and much speculation. I highly recommend looking into dream dictionaries, either in print or on the web. These use symbols from dreams (ie animals, colours, objects, etc) and connotations in order to interpret the dream's meaning. Here's a link to one of the most popular online: ...
This is such a cool topic! I've always been interested in dreams, because if you think about dreams are actually super weird! For your project are you thinking about doing it more on what do our dreams mean or more the science of why people dream and what causes you to have a good dream or a bad dream. Im really excited about the research you find and the discoveries you make! Good luck: )
Thanks Moira for the comment, I want to base the project more on what dreams mean. The facts are that we already know how we have them and what chemicals are brain uses, I want to know why. I want feedback from people about how they dream and what they dream about, not searching up facts. Although I will do lots of research as backround info for my overall results.
I really like this question because everybody dreams or has nightmares, even if you don't always remember them. I really like the part about what is the difference between a dream and a nightmare, because it's something that I personally just think of in black and white terms, as in dreams are good/happy and nightmares are the opposite. I wonder if it is more though, and I can't wait to see what you come up with. Good luck!
Your plan was executed with such grace Elinor! I believe by giving people an eye into what other indigenous cultures have to offer there has been a lot of understanding and respect for one another. Unfortunately I wasn't able to attend the conference but with all the information you have shared over the semester I have felt very involved with everything you have been doing. I can't wait to see where you take this project next or if you find new questions from all your new found answers!
According to my understanding the important of learning ingenious culture is to know how people live and their regular activities. In Kenya many communities used to eat Ugali which is our daily food in our life.Ugali is the maize flour mixed with water.
Wow Taryn! I'm excited to see where you go with this project! If so, I wonder if it has anything to do with the imagination needing to serve more/less/different functions in adults than children... Hey, you're getting me thinking already Can't wait!!!!
Nice topic Taryn! I could definitely see some interesting research and ideas with this, since there's always that thought that adults are far less imaginative than children due to the fact that they know more about facts, can be cynical at times, etc. Looking forward to it!
Great topic, it'll be interesting to know what the concerns are with it, I don't think many people know! It would also be interesting to know what the main differences are when it comes to private farming as opposed to factory farming, and how it affects the quality of the product. Excited to see your project progress!
It is true that lawyers are corrupt but not all of them especially in Kenya some of them receive bribes in order to defend the guilty ones and make the innocent to be guilty this kind of activities have been in progress since the colonial period up to now.
I like this blog millicent i think you posted the truth of matter,a few years ago our former president moi said and i quote `hii maneno ya uhuru italeta mambo!`meaning freedom will bring other things.and i prove that what Moi was seing was true.This em-ages inform of what we call corruption.
I like this blog millicent you posted the truth of matter ,since the colonial period up to now corruption have been day to day activity.Our second former president Mio said and i quote `hii mabmo ya uhuru italeta mambo`meaning that freedom will bring stupid things.and i prove that Moi was telling the facts.this speech em-aged in form of what we call corruption.
The Kenyan constitution it state that in order for some one to be a lawyer he/she must have a diploma in law and he should be vetted then sworn in by the chief justice of the subprime coat shortcut is not allowed note it is not a must for you to go to the Kenyan chief justice but you can visit any chief you fell like even foreigners as long as you have your documents to show that you are a collified lawyer .
I real appreciate your dream to become a lawyer in future and i pray to God that you will win that dream.One of the characteristics of a good leader is to be transparent to your colleagues. IF you become a lawyer make sure that you fight against corruption and avoid greediness.
I wish you all the best in your dream career,the Kenyan constitution is vast and broad therefore you need vast knowledge and research unless you narrow down to one part,for more information log into www.kenyanconstitution.com.All the best
