Interesting Research on Travis Rice and John Jackson

Thu, 24 Mar 2011 06:40:54 +0000

While doing my research on John Jackson and Travis Rice I found out quite a few interesting facts on both of these guys. For instance, John Jackson scoring "Rider of the Year" for a second year in a row, and Travis Rice’s professional life starting at the age of 18.

Travis Rice scored a record breaking Switch 540 over Chad’s gap her in Utah. He has won Rider of the Year two years ago, Video Part of the Year, Reader’s Choice Award, and Standout of the Year. Making films like That’s It That’s All, and the Art of Flight.

Most Interesting From Research

Thu, 24 Mar 2011 05:41:14 +0000

The most interesting thing I learned during my research project was about Jung's theory on the collective unconscious. He proposed that we were all born with an innate knowledge, inherited by virtue of our humanity. In this unconscious are collected all archetypes, or primordial ideas and patterns of thought, which cause us "to experience things in a certain way" (Boeere). Deja-vu would be a phenomenon explained by the theory according to Jung. Dreams, recurring symbols, and myths are a manifestation of the buried contents of the collective unconscious as interpreted consciously by man. The symbols in tarot could trigger, or tap into this unconscious as well.

Personal, Personal Genomics

Thu, 24 Mar 2011 01:16:58 +0000

To me, the most interesting part of personal genomic tests are the personal stories that surround their results. In 1995, Sergery Brin and Larry Page founded Google. Its ground-breaking success netted each one over five billion dollars. Eleven years later, Brin invested in his wife’s new personal genomics company, 23andMe. Brin volunteered to be a tester of the service. His DNA sequencing revealed he has a high chance of eventually contracting Parkinson’s Disease. Since then, Brin has contributed over fifty million dollars to research to find a cure for Parkinson’s.

Most Interesting Thing Learned

Mon, 21 Mar 2011 04:26:38 +0000

The most interesting thing I have learned in my research about the origins of music and how it has evolved as time has progressed has been about the relation between huma evolution and music's evolution. Some scientists, and musicians, believe that it is possible that music its self is evolutionary and for that matter a gene or trait that some of us posses. David Huron, a professor of music at the University in Ohio in Columbus, has many reasons to believe that this is a given truth. His reasoning behind it is as follows. According to him, it is clear that music has been in our society since the beginning of the human race. As time has progressed and we have evolved, so has the music that we listen to, perform, and create.

My Favorite Thing I learned

Sun, 20 Mar 2011 17:27:13 +0000

I surveyed 46 students of both genders and all grades from Judge Memorial Catholic High School.  The results showed that exactly half of the students thought the iPad was worth buying, while the other half argued that statement.  This was the most surprising thing for me because I was honestly expecting the results to that question to be very one-sided (in the "no" direction).  Teenagers apparently have very different opinions when it comes to spending money on the iPad, and that was probably my favorite thing that I learned.




The Most Interesting Thing About Graphene

Fri, 18 Mar 2011 18:15:30 +0000

    In researching graphene, I found quite a few interesting things. Graphene itself is extremely interesting, as are its potential applications.

    Some of its properties include: being one of the thinnest physical substances with each layer only one atom thick, being one of the strongest known materials, being extremely lightweight (as it is made of carbon which has a molar mass of approximately 12 g/mol, in comparison iron has a molar mass of approximately 56 g/mol), being essentially transparent, and being extremely flexible.

Ashtanga Yoga

Fri, 18 Mar 2011 17:06:19 +0000

One of the most interesting things I have learned from researching my topic are the eight limbs of yoga, according to Patanjali. The eight limbs are Yama, Nizama, Asana, Pranyama, Pratyhara, Dharna, Dhyana, and Samadhi. Each are correlated with how to perform yoga to a degree that will effect you mentaly and physically. 1. Yama- ethics, restraint and ahimsa 2. Niyama- cleanliness, ascetism, etc. 3. Asana- posture 4. Pranyama- breath-control 5. Pratyahara- sense-withdrawl 6. Dharna- concentration 7. Dhyana- meditation and 8. Samadhi- oneness in quality of jivaatma and Paramatma with Pranava of the Ishvara.




Most Interesting Thing About Superstitions

Fri, 18 Mar 2011 17:04:47 +0000

 Through researching my topic I have come to learn some unusual superstitious beliefs and practices but I also learned that every practice fits the time period they were created. For example during the Black Plague in Europe there came a saying "If you have a piece of bacon your harvest will thrive, especially if the meat was stolen." I found the origins of superstitions interesting. A lot came from writings in the Bible or Greek philosophy. But also some things like "If you step on a crack you will break your mother's back" came from experiences or hardships that the people of the time when through. A lot of superstitions arose from religion and their need to keep away the devil or evil spirits.

I found it exceedingly interesting that Schopenhauer was from a family of dutch origin, as he was born in Danzig, a city so far east that it is no longer Germany. (It is now Gdansk, Poland) It made me a tad sad to realize that the two greatest German philosophers were born in cities that are no longer in Germany. (The other, Immanuel Kant, was born in Königsberg, now Kalinningrad, Russia.)

 

 




Most Interesting Fact

Fri, 18 Mar 2011 16:56:26 +0000

The most interesting thing I learned about brewing while researching my project is that brewing at home is a lot easier than I thought. I thought brewing was a huge complicated process, and it can be if you wish to make it so, but it is also can be a couple step process. This allows anyone, from beginners to experts, to take pride in their brew.




80% Admit Knowledge of Crime Scene Investigation Is Influenced by Television

Fri, 18 Mar 2011 14:47:38 +0000

The most interesting thing about my project was found when I surved sixty-five Judge Memorial students. I asked two questions that had to do with real life crime scene investigation which led into two more questions which led into asking about crime scene investigation T.V. shows. The last question I asked had surprising results. I asked if they believed their knowledge/awareness of crime scene investigation is influenced by what you see on television. The results? only 13 out of 65 said that it didn't influence them at all. I found this huge gap shocking.




The Most Interesting Thing

Fri, 18 Mar 2011 14:43:24 +0000

The most interesting thing i have found out through my research is the fact that the Egyptians, the Greeks, the Romans, and ancient Chinese cultures all have similar beliefs in the afterlife and all of which have to do with the existance of ghosts. They do vary in thier exact beliefs but all of which believe that the angry spirits stay and haunt the living. Also most of them have a God that is the ruler over the dead souls.




Sartre's Philosophy Research Paper: Most Intresting Thing

Fri, 18 Mar 2011 14:40:24 +0000

Sartre's is famous for comming up with the philosophy of Existentialsim. This school of philosophy became a 20th century pop culture phenomon, influencing writers, artists and academia at large. However most of these people focused on the nothingness of his philosophy, the fact that every thing we do is a negation, that we are creatures of nothingness, and that in fact something does come from nothing. Few know that Existentialsim has a very humanistic driven aspect to it. That it centers around a persons choice and although through choosing something he also chooses the opposite of it, he still is in the drivers seat bu choosing, thus it is man who drives the philosophy not anything else.
