Re: Effects of Solar Radiation on People With Dark Coloured Skin.

Hey Dorcas, What a great question you came up with! I never knew that people with darker skin had more protection than people with fairer skin because I understood that people with really light skin will burn easily, but I assumed everyone had a somewhat equal protection. One question I do have though is when people with darker skin do happen to get a sunburn, does it heal faster since you have more protection? or is it the same since the sun already passed through your protection? I look...

Re: History of Canada

Hi Stephen, I think it's really cool that you chose to research the history of Canada. Ever since elementary school, I have always learned about Canadian history in socials studies. For anyone that doesn't know that much about the topic, your research would be very helpful. I found this video that might help you; https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CBPvQRazhw8 Good luck!

Re: History of Canada

This is really interesting! Never did it ring in my mind that the Canadians [ white people] had culture, Stephen how about you take one community in Kenya and try to compare it with the aboriginals in Canada? To get the similarities and the differences.. ?

Re: History of Canada

Hi Stephen, The cultures of indigenous people of present day Canada is truly beautiful. The history of indigenous people is usually overlooked and I strongly suggest that you look into it. I found a video that discusses the problems faced by First Nations people in Canada. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WGqtcnqRRNY I look forward to reading your next post!

Re: Effects Of Colonization on the First Nations.

Bring Frist Nations this is something that I feel strongly about. I am actually doing a very similar project in my Social Studies class. I am looking at how the Indian Act influenced people in the past and how the truth and reconciliation commission is influencing people now. The truth and reconciliation commission was recently made to try and fix the wrong doings of the government in the past against First Nations. They have also been giving people who went to residential school money.

Re: Effects Of Colonization on the First Nations.

Hey Stephen, I'm actually currently researching the First Nations in Canada, and it's really unjust seeing what happened in the residential schools. As Audrey said, they re-compensated the residential school survivors with money, but to me, it's as if they are just trying to eliminate the problem rather than acknowledge it and truly be able to complete the reconciliation. Here is a link for you and others to take action and make a difference. This also may lead you to be interested and learn...

Thanks Audrey and Maiya, I agree with both of you that giving the First Nations people money is not a good way of compensating them for all the problems they went though under the colonial rule. I am really interested in knowing what the government in particular is doing in order to recognize the First Nations people. I will mostly be dealing with the truth and reconciliation part of First Nations history. Thank you very much for the links that you gave me and am sure they will play a very...

Re: Effects Of Colonization on the First Nations.

Hey Stephen, As a Métis person myself I can definitely appreciate your interest in the history of First Nations in Canada. However there is one thing that I wish correct you on as I believe that it is an important distinction.That being that Bison were not the main food source for ALL First Nations groups in Canada, as Bison mainly lived in the mid-western parts of Canada and the USA such as the Prairie Provinces (Alberta, Manitoba, Saskatchewan). Other groups such as the Coast Salish people...

Re: Effects Of Colonization on the First Nations.

Hi Stephen! You put a lot of research into this topic and post, good work! Its incredibly true that residential schools, and the governments treatment of first nations still affect them today. The trauma of going through a residential school, not only affects the one person, but their kids as well, as often times things like drugs and alcohol are used to cope. It could be interesting in future posts to look into more of the mental/traumatic parts of these experiences. Good Luck!

Re: Research round #1 Natural Disasters

This is a really cool topic! I found this ted video on tsunamis, it is just the basics but it is interesting. http://ed.ted.com/lessons/how-...is-work-alex-gendler What exactly about natural disasters are you looking into, because there are a lot of different ways you could go with this. Are you going to compare the severity of different types of natural disasters? Look into how to prevent or protect against these disasters?

Re: Research round #1 Natural Disasters

Hi Jason, This is some very relevant and informative research. It is quite surprising how little people know about earthquakes and how little people are prepared for them. Out of curiosity, do you plan on researching and providing information on earthquake preparedness in the future? It does not directly connect with your whole natural disasters topic but I can see it being very relevant to your research on earthquakes and also very informative to everyone who reads it. I found some links...

Effects Of Colonization on the First Nations.

Stephen Kinyua (Thome) ·
First Nations were the first inhabitants of Canada. The European newcomers destroyed their way of life. This mainly occurred as a result of the diseases that I discussed in my former post. They also harmed the environment by killing and hunting the entire population of bison, thus depleting the main food source for First Nations. A lot of beavers were killed for their fur which was to be used in making blankets. First Nations have lost approximately 98% of their land and were forced to live...

Effects of Solar Radiation on People With Dark Coloured Skin.

Dorcas Akinyi (Sweetwaters) ·
Hello everyone today am looking at the effects of solar radiation on people with dark coloured skin. Dark complexions have both advantages and disadvantages when it comes to sun exposure. On one hand, dark skin is less likely to get sunburned and less likely to develop skin cancer. On the other hand, because dark skin naturally provides protection from the sun's ultraviolet rays, it prevents dark-skinned people from producing the necessary amount of vitamin D.(1) People who are at a high...

History of Canada

Stephen Kinyua (Thome) ·
The history of Canada covers the period from the arrival of Paleo-Indians thousands of years ago to the present day. Canada has been inhabited for millennia by distinctive groups of Aboriginal peoples, with distinct trade networks, spiritual beliefs, and styles of social organization. Some of these civilizations had long faded by the time of the first European arrivals and have been discovered through archaeological investigations.(1) Beginning in the late 15th century, French and British...

Hey Moses, Your post on corruption was very enlightening because I never knew it was a serious issue in India. I find it quite surprising that about half of the population of India has accepted a bribe, but sadly once one person gets away with it many more may be able too as well. Maybe in your next round of research you could come up with possible solutions to help fix the corruption in India that's affecting many citizens? Here are some links to help you out.

Hey Moses, Great post on corruption and also its effects on human.You have also mentioned corruption in India,but it is well known that corruption is not only in India but also everywhere else in the world including the developed countries.Also you should inform us when corruption started its effects and also it have some benefits to some people like for example a person may come rich at once and this improves the standards of some people.

Hey Moses, This is a very important topic for people to become more aware of. Corruption exists in most places where there is power because, in general, people who have power strive to retain it. Therefore corruption is often worst in places where there is a large amount of unchecked power such as in governments and large corporations. The media and the freedom of the press is one of the biggest protections that people have against corrupt organizations but, as you said in your post, often...

Great post Moses. Your topic is definitely something everyone should take seriously. Perhaps you could look into more detail about how the Swiss banks got involved in stashing rupees.

Hi Ashilline ! Wow! Another great post! I can see that you put a lot of effort into it. I like how you are looking into railways and trains. The reality is that our society is quite dependent on this mode of transportation. It’s all for the good reasons. As you mentioned, they can easily carry many passengers and heavy loads for long distances. I find that very few really realize that. I also found it intriguing how you compared railways to roadways. Great analysis! It’s true that train...
