Re: The Burn

Josie Schmidt (LFAS) ·
that's a really neat perspective. i hadn't thought of it that way. what about the people who have changed the world? i wonder if they thought the same way when they were younger? did they ever think they could do what they did? i think that lots of motivation in students comes from something that they personally are passionate about not something that someone is asking them to do.

I am certain you will,the military's work i can say is to protect the country from external attacks,but it can also do other duties when instructed.I think studying USA army is broad,i suggest you start with Kenya which is much easier....... !

Re: When do you use technology?

I agree with your point, mainly about how someone's mind could be filled with stuff they cannot apply to other areas. But it could be argued that shows and other media could lead a child or person to think critically about certain things. On another angle, a show might have certain information that someone could apply to in areas requiring critical thinking. Its all highly situational, but fiction may not always be second to practical applications.

Re: THE HISTORY OF CHAUVINISM

Ben Laird (LFAS) ·
Hey Dale, I wonder how male chauvinism in Africa compares to chauvinism in north america. Maybe after you are done your next post on the comparisons between present and past you could look into my suggestion. P.S Just as a side note make sure to check the grammar in your posts before posting. Your spelling is great but sometimes (little mistakes don't apply) there are times when a word is misused or misplaced. Not so much that I can't understand but I this if you edit your work you will get...

Re: C2RR#4: "How Are Our Memories Affected by Different Aspects of Our Environment?"

Great work Nazaha! Is it possible that the bias you found occurred mainly since you were researching information due to memory? Thus the need for information on spacial recognition was not as dire? overall the information that you have gathered is well cited and presented rather professionally in my opinion. Good job

Re: C2RR#4: "How Are Our Memories Affected by Different Aspects of Our Environment?"

Hey Nazaha! I admit I got really confused at first upon reading your first bit, however, I really learned a lot from your post! It may have been confusing at first but you explained everything in a way that let me understand the information your were presenting. I really applaud you for your writing and how you have been able to credit the author in your work! Great work! Good luck!

Re: C2RR#4: "How Are Our Memories Affected by Different Aspects of Our Environment?"

Hi Nazaha! Like Aiesha, I was confused at first too as I have very little if not any knowledge of the brain. However I would like to mention how greatly you explained all the information you researched and delivered it so well. Looking forward to your upcoming posts, Kalith.

Re: Research Round 2 - Mankind

Hey Juliana! What an interesting topic! I think that it's quite difficult to divide a person's actions into categories as broad as "good" or "evil", because I think that many of the negative decisions that we make are either unconscious, or backed by a motive that we believe to have positive results. I don't know if it's human nature to be "evil" per se, but perhaps it is just our inherent ignorance towards the consequences of our actions that causes us to do "evil" things. Here are some...

Hi Juliana! I'm an aboriginal student and one thing that is super important to aboriginal culture is community, family is everything. One thing that I've noticed is that people who aren't nice to their family or their community tend to be rude people and usually are selfish. You were also talking about humans creating pollution and I think this also has to do with people not being informed about the cause and effect of pollution because some people aren't exposed to the knowledge of reduce,...

Re: Research Round 2 - Mankind

Hey, As humans we are still animals ( classified under animalia ). All animals have it hardwired into their brains to keep themselves and those who are close to them alive. So to ask if we are good or evil, is an extremely difficult topic to debate, as we have to ask ourselves if killing is evil. Most people will say yes, but then one has to ask if a predator killing prey is evil. Most people will say no. We say this because we know the difference between good and evil, however we do not...

Hey Juliana! Interesting research! I personally always thought it was a balance of good and evil, but its good to know that it isn't, making more good. In my opinion, I think that you aren't 'born' evil. I believe it's something that is developed over time. This is just an example, but if you were raised by a person or people that are racist, mean, and bad and they teach you everything you know, that can make you a bad person. Another example could be that if there was traumatic event in...

Re: Research Round 2 - Mankind

Hey Juliana! This is a fantastic inquiry question and I'm so excited to continue reading your work! Just a few questions: will you be focusing on whether or not mankind is good or evil from a moral standpoint, or an environmental standpoint, or a different standpoint? Great job!
Reply

Re: Research Round 2 - Mankind

Hi Juliana, Your topic is a very difficult one to tackle as it can be viewed from very different perspectives. Even though our intentions for doing certain actions may be pure, we do not always pay attention to the consequences. Good and evil have always been a predominant theme in many works of art. One of the things you could include in your following posts is how our view on the good and evil nature of our world has changed over time. I look forward to read your next post!

Re: What if women were the leaders in all the fields in the world?

Today am talking about leadership. an effective modern leader requires a blend of intellectual quality the ability to think analytically, strategically and creatively and emotional. I meet far more women with this blend of quality than men. The vast majority of CEOs and senior executives are women.Most women bring to leadership a more complete range of quality.Modern leaders need self awareness,emotional attunement and authenticity. This contends that men overvalue their strengths from an...

hi Barnice...Its good to learn about your new project..Your first question of whether geniuses are made or born triggered my mind to first ask myself whether i am a genius or not..I don't know whether to firmly say different people posses different types of IQ's.All the same,maybe in your project you could also consider the Renaissance period where knowledge is believed to have been born. By the end of your research, i hope to learn how many genius we currently have in home.... All the best...

Re: THE GENIUS WORLD

Hi Lucy! Over the course of history, there have been many esteemed geniuses that have brought great change to our world. Unfortunately, many of them have been subject to tragedy, and to mental illness. Some examples include Van Gogh, Einstein, and Mozart. Here's a link to a site that correlates geniuses to their various mental illnesses: http://www.higherperspectives....gene-1406166647.html Good luck with your research!

Re: THE GENIUS WORLD

Hey Lucy, This is a really cool question. Perhaps an interesting question to ask is what makes someone a genius? Is it because they are extremely intelligent? Or could it be because they use their intelligence in a more creative and unique way than the rest of us? Here is an article that I think might help: http://people.howstuffworks.com/genius.htm

Re: What if women were the leaders in all the fields in the world?

I was fascinated by the statistics of your topic and research. I found this site that maybe you'd probably give a chance. https://www.summer.harvard.edu...lity-women-workplace The thing that worries me the most is that at first glance, this feels like another "why women is better than men" post. When deep down, I know that your topic is much more than statistics and surveys; being more of a report to woman standards and struggles in the work space. Good luck!

hey.....for me i think, on this issue it depends on what one is doing and the altitude towards it. i think if women were on the front the world could be more worse because, most men do not obey women because they believe men to be the head of every thing.This applies in the bible that man is the head of woman and the woman is the helper of the man.

Hi Rhea, I love how this question is answered as you mention how the iPhone and other tech has been around but we barely even notice time passing however at the same time so many developments have been made. It is truly impactful when comparing the last ten years and what has happened within this short time frame compared to the next 100 years. I'm glad you are wanting to stay with this topic as I'll be really interested to read your next posts!

Re: The Burn(Why do poor countries stay poor ?)

Ben Laird (LFAS) ·
The poverty cycle is very hard to get out of but yet those with money and power seem to get richer and more powerful while those impoverished stay poor. It is hard not to question why those with too much money don't help those who are in need of it. Maybe they are just greedy or maybe it is just hard to help so many people. This is a very difficult question for sure.

Hey Kariuki, a nice topic you have, according to my thinking as to why poor country stay poor is because, the members of the country are the ones who are entertaining it by giving bribes to the leaders, this can be controlled by being faithful and not giving out bribes.

Re: HOW SOCCER ORIGINATED

You've got some solid research here, Samuel! I appreciated your outline of soccer through time. It was helpful to see the pacing of the sport over these 2000 years of soccer. I'm excited for the rest of your research. Looking at age, gender, and race in a soccer context seems interesting. Are you planning on looking into those aspects on another timeline? That could be kind of cool - seeing how soccer spread across different cultures at different rates. Here are some links you may find...

Hey Samuel! This is awesome research! I think it's super cool to look into a sport most of us are so familiar with and really look at how it started.
