Re: Inquiry Question

Great idea. There's a reason why murals are constantly seen through the entire art history, from the Stone Age, barock frescos, and graffiti today....they are a powerful and strong kind of art. The idea with the photos, is not just modern, it also represents an entire major from the school. I'm so excited to follow the process. Keep it up! This is awesome.

Re: Inquiry Question

Michelle Ciolfitto (Mentor) ·
Very organized plan and research. Is there any benefit to having a baseline set of opinions? i.e. to determine the impact of art in public spaces, might you survey the community before the project is started to gage how they think art will affect the space itself or them personally? Survey questions must not lead the participants to a particular answer though - be careful in your question design if you opt to do this.

Re: Inquiry Question

Wow I love this idea! Photography is a really powerful art form when done correctly, and I think this is a great way to spread awareness about different issues concerning the environment and other different topics. Good luck!

Re: Inquiry Question

Wow this is really cool! Whenever I walk through parts of a school that have murals, it immediately 1) Makes the school look brighter and 2) Inspires people and makes people think about the meaning behind it. Same with driving through down town Vancouver, especially the more urban spaces. When you drive through, there are so many beautiful murals to catch your eye. I think what you are doing is great, keep up the good work!

Re: Food For Thought

That's a tonne of information you have there, I really like it. Many people don't know how to balance their diets and they end up taking too much of something which then translates to having poor health. I really like the last part where everything is outlined It is very important how you said in the beginning that our bodies are different and that different people have different needs. Each person should strive to understand their own bodies and maintain good health according to the body's...

Thanks for the comment! In the corner of the info-graphic there is a little running man that says "stay active." So, they did include exercise, but I decided not to mention it because I am focusing on nutrition. However, you are completely right about it being a vital part of being healthy. In combination, good nutrition and exercise leads to a healthy mind and body. To answer your other question, In my previous research I found that having a balanced diet improved learning. So, following a...

Re: The Burn

Desi Chek (Alumni-LFAS) ·
I agree. I've always wanted to improve my eating habits, but have struggled. It wasn't until I did this project and learned about how my diet is affecting my cognitive function and physical health that I actually started to make changes. It seemed very overwhelming at first, but starting off with smaller changes made it more manageable. One of the first changes I made was finding healthier alternatives to my favourite junk foods; I found that easier than just cutting out foods that I enjoy.

Re: Food For Thought

This is some really interesting research! I really like your topic. I think that it is something that everything should know to have a healthier lifestyle. I really like the tips from the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health. It is very interesting tips, that I think I will use in the future. I really like this topic, good research!

Re: Can we trust food labels?

Hi Yasmin, This is a really neat question, and I feel like you can really discover a lot throughout your research. It is true that we, the consumers, can only see what these food producers want us to see. There were rumours going around saying that McDonald's buys their beef from a company called "100% beef" so they can advertise that their beef is pure to mask the fact that they put other stuff in their meat. These rumours were put to an end when we found out that they were false, but I...

Hi Yasmin, I know this very good documentary film call "Food, Inc." It is about the dark and nasty side of American meat industry. This documentary is vey hard to watch, but very powerful at the same time. I had to try very hard to not turn the documentary off when watching it. It talk about the immoral truth that everyone avoid to face. If you are welling to dive into some intense, dark facts, I highly recommend this documentary, it is very life changing!

Takako Liu (Alumni-LFAS) ·
Hi Yasmin, I was going to suggest "Food, Inc.", but I guess Juolin already beat me to it! It's really sad, but I think it would really help with your research. I think an interesting thing you can pay attention to when you do your research is the relationship between food and our environment. So if you decide to look into, say, livestocks, there's a bunch of research out there about cattle-ranching and its effect on climate-change. Good luck on your research! :-)

Re: Can we trust food labels?

Very interesting topic Yasmin! I've been interested in food for my whole life, my mom is a caterer and we were born in Italy so food has been an important aspect of our upbringing. I've been playing with the idea of doing a "you are what you eat" photo inquiry for quite a while now and I'd be very cool if we could try and collaborate maybe or if my photos could be based on your research. This is a very informative and scary video I watched a few years ago and I think you'd enjoy learning...

Cool stuff Priscilla,for sure measure need to be taken to prevent child labor perhaps there were no child labor?????The country would be in a state to depend on themselves. Public health has established roles in the prevention of child ... use and child maltreatment and in doing so promote prevention initiatives ... health policies and programmers for the implementation of measures.

Re: Health measure taking place in child labor.

Hello Priscilla, Really great work! This was very easy to read because of the more spread-out format with bullet points, etc. Here's a idea you could maybe take into consideration: looking into how the laws on child labour differ from country to country. I think the results that you find could be surprising. Keep it up! Maiya

Re: PERUVIAN AND WESTERN MEDICINE : ROUND 4

Hey Heeva, Pretty cool post! Definitely learned something. For its illegality in Canada, you may want to research in on the history of that. Some may have been activated because research has shown it wasn't ideal for the public so the governments were the ones that listened to the docs and scientists. To prevent a use of a certain thing would actually mean theres something less that the Govt. can tax on and gain more money, so i'd say it's a bit less of a possibility on business in this case...

Re: I wonder whether solar radiation affects human health.

Hey Dorcas, Great topic, especially with summer coming to the corner. A suggestion for your research would be to look at Melanin role against solar radiation. As for someone with dark skin living in Lybia would not have to worry about sunburn and wearing sunscreen compared to someone who came from Canada with lighter skin who was in Lybia.

Re: I wonder whether solar radiation affects human health.

Hi Dorcas what an interesting topic according to my own view of thinking i think radiation is the spread of energy through space in the form of waves and it can affect human health because it has sufficient energy to change or break molecules which can damage a cell of human body. i will be looking down to your next post work.

Nice Dorcas on solar radiation for sure some sickness and diseases come about through naturally with out our intention but because of our day to day activity which destroy protective layers on the atmosphere,thus leading to effect on human health.Radiation from sun have clear detrimental effects based on analysis of the wavelength dependency.

Re: Project background on solar radiation.

Hi Dorcas! It's great that you're informing people about the effects of solar radiation, because while it does keep us healthy and gives us necessary vitamin D, it can also be very detrimental to our health if we expose ourselves to much to the sun. If you want to, perhaps you could look at how exposure to radiation differs from being on Earth to being in space? Just an idea. Here are some websites you can use in your research: http://sciencing.com/beneficia...radiation-19459.html...

Re: Project background on solar radiation.

Hi Dorcas, This is a very important topic as our exposure to the sun's radiation is increasing due to other global factors. Being informed of the healthy and unhealthy effects that solar radiation can have is vital for our current society. I found a very interesting research paper on how Vitamin D gained from the sun can help the development of people with intellectual disabilities. Perhaps this article could be useful for your own research.
