Ambrose Karani (Tigithi School)

Some can still be found there. Here are some of the country's better known drugs, in their natural, pre-processed form. Opium poppy (heroin, morphine,...Read More...

Hello everyone! This is my fifth and final round for my question: "Why is Vancouver one of the most expensive places to live?"

I would have added this to the round that I talked about housing in, but there was so much information, I have chosen to make this round dedicated to it. During this whole project, I found the biggest...Read More...

Hey everyone, On my last post, I uncovered how social media affects how teens dress, if it lowers or raises standards and if a certain platform of social media is more beneficial to business. I found out that social media has a great influence on how teens dress because companies promote their products on different platforms which results in teens purchasing them right away. After a certain amount of people buy a specific product, a trend has been created and shared through many other posts.Read More...

In the round research 5, I'll mainly discuss how to fix a relationship. Most people refuse to have a further communication when misunderstanding happens, how are we going to cope with it? Notes: Be attentive to what one your partner is saying. Show concern and compassion. Remember times that make you both laugh. De-escalate conflict. Don't bring up the issues from the past. Have a basic level of trust. Be accountable for your actions and don't blame one another. Turn your negative energy...Read More...

Its motion is the same as that of a sound wave in that, as it spreads out, it alternately pushes (compresses) and pulls the...Read More...

Many studies delve into the economic, social and/or political ramifications of natural disasters but seldom do we think of the effect that these disasters have on demography. Demography is the composition of a population and the study of it aims to illustrate the changing structure of human populations. Time and time again in history natural disasters have altered the course of history with regards to human demography. Take the eruption of mount vesuvius in 79 A.D and the subsequent...Read More...

Chapter Seven, Caught, Draft Two

“ Andrea... what are you talking about?” How could she know why our parents are fighting? “Are you sure?” She nodded. “Y-yes.” I put a hand on her shoulder and escorted her to sit on my large bed. Sobs were still wracking her body and she was looking at the floor. “Why? Can you tell me?” “ Dad... It wasn't his fault,” She finally met my eyes again. “Dad got really angry once. He hit me.” I gaped at her. “Why didn't you tell me?” I asked softly. “ Because I knew what you'd say,” she hiccuped.Read More...
