Over 340 metric tons of plastics are produced in the world annually and about 50% of this volume is for disposable applications(2). A leading cause for littering could be greenwashing...Read More...

This round I will be looking at: What are the benefits of self driving cars, how do they impact the world in a good way and when can we expect them to be implemented?

Are self driving cars worth all of the ethical problems they cause? This round I am looking at the problems that self driving cars cause I’m dividing this post into two sections, one research part and one opinion part. The opinion part is mostly based off of the survey I made, but my opinions are also stated. I might do this for all of my posts because of my topic, but we’ll see 😊 Since this is my first round of research (ever), feel free to let me know if you think I should do something...Read More...

Discussion of how your inquiry now impacts your thinking Before starting my inquiry, my knowledge about music festivals and recreational drugs weren't too high; meaning I had to research for quite a while to understand my very own questions. But now that I have...Read More...

INQUIRY SUMMARY How does the criminal justice system affect children with parents who are incarcerated?

How does the criminal justice system affect children with parents who are incarcerated? Throughout my research it became more difficult than I believed it would be and it was not easy to find information that would be pertinent to my research. I found many impacts on the child that ranged from physical and emotional depending on the type of absence from the parental figure. There were many cases where either the parent was completely absent or more complex cases where the parent was...Read More...

Hello everyone and happy holidays! I'm finally posting a bit of the work I've been working on over the past while to show I'm actually slightly productive.

METAMORPHOSIS How does the criminal justice system affect children with parents who are incarcerated?

How does the criminal justice system affect children with parents who are incarcerated? Discussion of how your inquiry now impacts your thinking. I have always been interested in my topic because of my hope to pursue a career in law and the criminal justice system. This topic also resonated a lot with me because I have a absent parent.

Hey everyone, Since the beginning of the year, I have been researching the foster care system and the effects it has on children and my findings have been eye opening for myself. This question had some meaning behind it for myself because over the summer, I became acquaintances with someone who was in the foster system and I wanted to figure out what experiences he went through during his time. There has been some controversial topics within the system, especially abuse of the children, but...Read More...

Hey everyone! This is, unfortunately, my last post for this cycle which makes this post my metamorphosis on my inquiry question... Does socially accepting drug addiction affect its usage among consumers positively or negatively? So, let's get started!

Hi everyone! This is my first metamorphosis for my cycle concerning the inquiry question: “what does it mean to be conscious?”. A reason why I choose to do this question was because people experience perceptions, sensations, emotions and thoughts. Consciousness is a phenomenon we all experience independently of each other. Just thinking about this is fascinating. During these past four research rounds, I had hoped to being into the light the importance of our awareness and that we can be...Read More...

However, I decided it would be interesting to add in the factor of markets and how they are promoting "drugs" as a liable activity. So, in this...Read More...
