There are always advancements being made, these particular ones are mainly about the possibility for creating a new real organ. 3D printing: Has anyone seen that “Ant-man and the Wasp” movie? Well do you remember the ending credits with the little fugrines? Those figurines were made using a 3D printer. What if I told you you can make organs with a 3D printer? Okay well we are not eaxctly there yet...but close. A 3D printed organ: Research has been done looking into making human tissue with a...Read More...

Artificial Pancreas

Haley Mills (LFAS)
The artificial Pancreas is a rather simple device. It is designed to automatically “release the correct amount of insulin in response to varying blood sugar levels.” (Renfrew Group International |, 2019). A pancreas will release insulin when it is trying to control glucose levels. People with diabetes are not able to do so properly or effectively. “In the current device a reservoir of inulin and a glucose sensitive polymeric gel barrier act to maintain blood sugar levels.” (Renfrew Group...Read More...

Artificial Hearts

Haley Mills (LFAS)
Artificial hearts are used for replacing the original biological heart when the biological heart is failing and can no longer be used. The artificial heart is very useful as it helps for people who are on a waitlist for a transplant, the artificial heart can buy them time and/or they can give it to someone else in the meantime. Unfortunately, the artificial heart does not last very long, around five years max, usually less. It is mainly there just to help with the very long wait of the...Read More...

Mini Personality Test

Sophie Holland (LFAS)
Hello everyone! This will be my last post on the site, at least for a while or unless I change this test. I have created some questions based around "The Big Five" personality traits, because they are known to be more reliable than the MBTI test. I have created the questions based around sources I have looked at for my previous research rounds, as well as tests I have taken. I hope you all find some time to take the test, and you enjoy! Butterfly Effect “The Big Five” Mini Test Constructed...Read More...

How does emotional abuse impact people?

Hey all! My last inquiry didn't pan out the way I though it would. So instead of just dumping all of my information and research in a catch-up post, I'm starting a new inquiry. I have recently been working on a student documentary on the topic of my friends' experience with emotional abuse. The documentary will highlight the effects of emotional abuse on teenagers. However, I would like to pursue research on the effects of emotional or psychological abuse beyond teenage-hood, as well. So,...Read More...
Hi everyone. Last week I conducted the second survey with grade 8’s at my school. I wasn’t able to share it with all of them and was only able to get 37 responses, as opposed to the 68 that I got the first time. The first question I asked was what their biggest takeaway from Screenagers was. For six of them, their biggest takeaway had something to do with videogame rehab. Some had never realized that it was something that even existed, others thought that it was unnecessary and one of them...Read More...

Round 2/3 - Does being vegetarian help animals and is it a sustainable way to live your life?

Big question: Does being vegetarian help animals and is it a sustainable way to live your life? Hi, sorry this post is so late, I ran into multiple technical difficulties and my post was deleted multiple times, but I’m back at it now! So this round will be both my round 2 and 3. I’ve divided it up into multiple parts so it’s easier to read. I also interviewed multiple vegetarian high schoolers to ask them about their experience being vegetarian. One thing to note is that any information...Read More...

Hello Butterfly! It has been a long time since I did my last post but am back with "Broaden your thinking on the relationship between lung cancer and drought."In Roba Abduba's post on "Lung cancer in animals",I found the post important to me because scientific research has proven that lack of water contributes to lung cancer.From my past posts,I have been showing that in recent years,water levels have been rising in the water bodies while the water remaining for domestic use is reducing.That...Read More...

*Funny story- Two weeks ago, I had typed an entire introduction to my new research study on what influences a negative sex culture, on my phone, straight on the 'post' category on this website (Not a well thought out decision) as opposed to having a copy on my google doc. Then, only until a few days ago I noticed my post never actually went through, (by that I mean, I probably got distracted by a notification and left the page without realizing that I didn't actually click 'publish') So, I...Read More...

Hi everyone, in my last post I talked about how many of the grade 8’s at my school use technology in their everyday life. Before I continue on in further answering my question, I am first going to talk about why people may use technology and how it can affect them, specifically their mental health, school, and sleep. There is a variety of reasons that people may use technology, but one of the most prevalent is the idea of it being cool. Many teenagers find that “all [their] friends have it”...Read More...

Hello everyone! This post is going to be a bit smaller than my previous posts. Recently, I have conducted a survey with the grade 9's at my school because many of them took the MBTI test as part of their Careers 8 curriculum. I only have a few results in so far, but I plan to get some more from the classes as soon as possible. As of June 6th, 2019, here are the results: Questions Asked: Did you complete the MBTI personality test as part of Careers 8? (I filtered out all the students who...Read More...

The Connection between Beauty and Self Esteem As a society we value beauty? Whether it be a flower, a sunset, a car or a person. As a society we also value intelligence, kindness, strength, speed, humor, compassion, and creativity. What we choose to see or not, is influenced by family, peers, social media, marketing messaging and life experiences.(1) The value of beauty can turn into a quest to become beautiful. Sometimes we can start to understand that to be beautiful is to be valued. A...Read More...

In this post, I will be talking about the two different types of prosthetic valve replacements: artificial valve replacements and biological valves replacements. I will be talking about the advantages and disadvantages to both, as well as what types there are. Types: Problems with heart valves, such as mitral and aortic valve disease, sometimes need to be replaced by either an artificial (also known as metal or mechanical) valve or biological (also known as tissue) valve. The two most common...Read More...

Hello everyone, I found another fun source that I’ll be mainly using for today. It’s a Naturopathy Wiki created for and edited by naturopaths. http://www.ndhealthfacts.org They have peer reviewed pieces, however they were reviewed by naturopathic institutes. Luckily though, they did have a section on Skincare that had some references. One thing I noted is the fact they recommended seeking a naturopathic doctor if you are experiencing negative side effects.Read More...

There are many problems surrounding livers. The liver is a very important part of the body as it regulates glucose levels, detoxifies, makes vital proteins and does many more important things for our body. If the liver does not function properly you could be put in a life-threatening situation. While you are able to live with part of a liver and it can grow back to full size, no liver no life. Unfortunately for us, the liver is a very important part of the body we can’t live without and it...Read More...

Hello everybody, Sorry I haven't posted in quite a while, I've been at a bit of a lull in terms of my research as I am waiting for some survey results to come in. However, I dug up some new research on another type of personality test: The Big Five. The Big Five is a personality test that is considered to be more valid than MBTI, mainly because it assesses people using a range of traits, (2) rather than giving them four letters and placing them in a box. Many psychologists also believe that...Read More...

First of all, I would like to say thank you to everyone who sent me information and links last post. They really helped me go into the right direction. However, the war between Modern North American Medicine (Which I am defining as whatever your GP would recommend) and Naturopathy (Specifically traditional medicine and plant usage for one's well being) can be a messy battlefield. Naturopathy articles themselves can often be very questionable... ...so, I've created a chart to help me stay...Read More...
