Discussions Discussion Quantum Physics Made Relatively Simple
Lauren Z-United States, Nov. 15, 2012

Hi my name is Lauren, and I’m a freshman in Texas. My mother forced me to watch this movie about quantum physics this summer called “What the Bleep Do We Know!?”. It’s kind of like quantum physics for beginners. It was a little confusing to follow at times, but I got the general gist which was the following: the universe is best seen as made from thoughts instead of matter, “empty space” is not really empty, matter is not solid (electrons go in and out of existance and it is unknown where they disapear to), nothing really touches anything else because of the electrons, beliefs about who one is and what is real are a direct cause of oneself and one’s own realities, matter can be anywhere and everywhere until you focus on where it is, peptides manufactured in the brain cause a bodily reaction to emotion that can make you sick or addicted to feeling that emotion, so that means all thoughts and emotions are physical. Well that is my best summary of the movie, I would only recomend it if you are into quantum physics or just highly curious because it does require a lot of thinking. My mom must really want me to get into quantum physics because she also gave me this book to read, “The Dancing Wu Li Masters”. I read it for a bit, but then it got boring and too confusing so I quit it, and now after this discussion I think I will start reading it again. In conclusion, if you want to get to know quantum physics on a relatively simple level, I suggest you first watch that movie and then if you find that you want to obain more information, read the book.

Discussions Discussion Pollution
Alba Rodríguez, Nov. 15, 2012

Hello! We are two science students for the contemporary world. We live in Santiago de Compostela, Galicia (Spain). It is a beautiful city famous for its ancient pilgrimage route, where thousands of people around the world come every year to see the beautiful old cathedral. Today we are taking a topic in class on pollution and resource consumption harmful to the environment such as oil, coal … doing surveys on the amount of consumption of each individual month. We wish you give us your opinion on this issue because we would like to know how this issue is handled in different countries and cities, and thus give us help and knowledge to the development of our project. Kind regards and hope your answers.

Life in the Universe

The Life in the Universe curriculum is a unique set of resources, for elementary and middle school teachers, designed to bring the excitement of searching for life beyond Earth into the classroom. The SETI Institute, with funding from NSF and NASA, developed these award winning classroom materials with a team of educators, curriculum developers, and scientists. The Life in the Universe curriculum explores many facets of how scientists are trying to answer the questions: Where did life come from? What is its future? Are we alone?
In the Life in the Universe curriculum, students explore conditions that support life on Earth, and the possible existence of life elsewhere. The curriculum draws upon the experience of SETI scientists, whose research encompasses the full spectrum of Astrobiology: astronomy, life sciences, Earth sciences, chemistry, physics, mathematics, engineering, and many other disciplines. The hands-on science activities were tested nationally in a variety of schools representing a broad range of students. Organized around story lines, these activities pose challenges that require students to investigate what is known about life on Earth.

Discussions Discussion Life on the Reef: Amazing World of Coral Fish…
Maddie D, May 9, 2012

So I’d love to visit here to explore the beautiful coral reefs depicted, but that doesn’t look very possible.

I wish that Indonesia’s government would try to help with the growing number of illegal fishermen who use explosives and cyanide to kill and stun their prey. Do the fishermen even realize what they are doing to the underwater landscape? Do they realize howthey are affecting so many more organisms than just their prey and coral?

Action clearly needs to be taken against these fishermen and their crimes that are changing a once-beautiful travel stop.

Discussions Discussion Nutrition and Medicine
Dash E-seattle, WA, May 3, 2012

I tend to notice that many poeple look for health in the bottom of a prescription bottle :/ which is not good (most times). More people need to see that the BEST way to be healthy and happy is by simply excercising and eating right :) Instead of playing XBOX or watching youtube, get up for 30 minutes a day and jog around, do some yoga, martial arts, anything to get your heart pumping!

    i agree, the best health you can get is from the physical exercise and eating healthy foods every day, and get good nutritions to keep your body healthy instead of using medication(unless you really do need it..)
  • Jacqueline T Jacqueline T May 4, 2012
    definitely and joining a sport can really help with this and just eating healthy will help too.

Should Humans Be Bioengineered For Climate Change?:

The so-far-ignored subject of how “biomedical modifications of humans” could be used to “mitigate and/or adapt to climate change”. The modifications discussed included: giving people drugs to make them have an adverse reaction to eating meat; making humans smaller via gene imprinting and “preimplantation genetic diagnosis”; lowering birth-rates through “cognitive enhancement”; genetically engineering eyesight to work better in the dark to help reduce the need for lighting; and the “pharmacological enhancement of altruism and empathy” to engender a better “correlation” with environmental problems.

Bioethics Professor S. Matthew Liao of NYU takes on a volitale issue!

The Science of Motion

Branch of physics and a subdivision of classical mechanics concerned with the geometrically possible motion of a body or system of bodies without consideration of the forces involved (i.e., causes and effects of the motions). Kinematics aims to provide a description of the spatial position of bodies or systems of material particles, the rate at which the particles are moving (velocity) and the rate at which their velocity is changing (acceleration) … in unconstrained or free motion, the forces determine the shape of the path. Branch of classical mechanics that concerns the effect of forces and torques on the motion of bodies having mass. Authors using the term kinetics apply the nearly
synonymous name dynamics to the classical mechanics of moving bodies. The art of making inanimate objects appear to move. Animation is an artistic impulse that long predates the movies.
History’s first recorded animator is Pygmalion of Greek and Roman mythology, a sculptor who created a figure of a woman so perfect that he fell in love with her and begged Venus to bring her to life. Some of the same sense of magic, mystery and transgression still adheres to contemporary film animation, which has made it a primary vehicle for exploring the overwhelming, often bewildering emotions of childhood – feelings once dealt with by folktales.
