Re: How do dogs interpret our language? Research Round #2

Lauren Jang (Charles Best) ·
Hello Rhea, Your topic interests me because I love animals and I like how detailed and informative your research is. I do have a thought that could be helpful to answer some of your inquiry question though. In my opinion dogs can't fully understand our language using just their ears. So I thought about how deaf people interrupt what we say and I remembered they use sign language which is like hand gestures for dogs. I think looking into "how dogs use their other senses to listen to their...

Re: How do dogs interpret our language? Research Round #2

"Do dogs have enemies?" I love this question! Attaching a usually human associated term to non-human things always interests me. This can lead to a whole bunch of questions, such as "What are enemies, really?" and "Why is the term enemy attached almost exclusively to humans?" While this is unrelated to your project, I just wanted to show you how inspiring your post was! Good luck, and I'm excited to keep updated with your research.

Hello Hello Rhea- Intriguing post, i read something about cats as well that they can be trained and i believe, with the proper technique and such, animals can be trained because they have some level of intelligence, just different species. Cat's normally people wouldn't think they are trainable felines, but on the contrary.

Hi Rhea! Another thing you could add on why dogs show specific interest to their owners/masters is the major factor of trust. A dog feels comfortable with humans after a while, when you've shown them that you care and that you love them and do not mean to harm them . This tells dogs, 'SAFE TO APPROACH!' And they will remember your smell as the person they can go to and lick your fingers. Hope this helps.

Re: Research Week #2 Re: How does the meat production really impact the environment?

Hey Jim, I loved reading your research round, you made some very strong points and it was very interesting and funny. For your next round of research I've heard about the massive contribution that meat production plays in global warming. From what I've heard and read certain meat industries are paying environmental charities to keep "hush hush" on the impact they have on our environment. Scary right? Just a suggestion, but I think you could touch on multiple environmental effects from the...

Hey Newton, I totally agree with you that children that spend over 4 or more hours of TV have a drop in intelligence. But as technology develops its not just TV anymore, its also phone's, tablets, computers. In my opinion, if you change the channel or turn the TV off the child might throw a temper tantrum or try and bargain with you to turn it back on.

Re: Cycle #2- Fossil Fuel Companies and Climate Change

Stephen Kinyua (Thome) ·
This is a very interesting research. Fossil fuel mining has contributed greatly to climate change and also affecting the total amount of carbon four oxide in the atmosphere, one of the most dangerous gases present in the atmosphere. This gas has had a significant effect on global warming which in turn has affected the amount of rain received in an area. I think that doing some bit of research on global warming would greatly improve your research. Good luck

Re: project plan #2

This is a really interesting topic! Bullying is something that basically everyone has been effected by at some point in their life time, so its probably really relatable to a lot of people. Something you could maybe look into (if you haven't already) is why people bully. It may be interesting! I'm looking forward to what you find! Good luck!!

hi I find that topic really interesting. Am from a country where people have to face bullying whenever they go to high school. Some of them end up have a high school course full of distress and eventually, they end up failing on the ground that someone bullied them. For instance, most grade 9 students in some high schools get bullied whenever they join high school from the other higher grades. For that reason, they end up doing the same to all other younger students who join years later as a...

Hi Ellen, It's interesting how you mentioned the positive effects to bullying, since at a glance it seems like there would be little to none.

Wow, interesting topic choice! Sexual exploitation is such a major problem world wide but it is still very prevalent here in Canada. People are generally unaware of the atrocities occurring around the world but, in terms of this subject, I would say that there is great unawareness even about what is occurring here, at home. In many places around the world this problem would be overlooked or overshadowed by larger and seemingly more important problems like wars and epidemics. However, I...

Re: C2 Research #2: What are Canada's greatest political challenge(s)?

Hi Kalith! I liked how you always look at both the pros, and the cons of every political situation before giving your opinion. It allows us, as readers to form our own opinions as well, which is nice. My question is, wouldn't it be worse on the world political stage for Canada, if we did not take in as many/any refugees to focus on our own internal issues. Especially given our reputation as a country? Good luck with your research.

Re: Research round #2(Cycle 4)- Resiliency

Hey Rhea! It was fascinating to read all about how in your DNA, some people can actually recieve a code for becoming stressed easily. I always figured that stress was more often induced by environmental factors, but now I'm curious to know how other personality traits are passed on from our parents! I suggest looking in to how your life and chances of success are effected by people who are more resilient than others. Great Research!

Re: Who makes better leaders: Introverts or Extroverts - Research round 3

Hey Priya! This is some really interesting research!

As Grace mentioned above, bolding your key words was very useful because you got the point across and it helped me remember your key points. I am curious about who are some examples of introverted and extroverted leaders. Maybe looking into past leaders who are both extroverted and introverted will help determine who makes better leaders based on their style of leading.
