Taking a Chance: Personal Growth through Boldness and Risk Taking

It is the little experiences in life that add up to who we are as people. Although we often wish we could erase some errant part of our past, doing so would change who we are today and our learned fear of taking a risk keeps us from growing more. "Taking a Chance:..." tells a story about lessons learned the hard way and takes a look at how we can experience continued growth by taking risks.

What Makes Human Language Special and Unique?

Human communication systems, known as 'language', seem to have a unique and special place in nature and evolution. Distinct even from primate speech, properties like 'arbitrariness', 'displacement' and 'cultural transmission' seem to be absent in most if not all other systems of information sharing in the animal kingdom. Is human language really special, and if so, how... and why?

Bubbles, Chalk, and Balls

It isn't every day that the conditions are completely perfect to leave a treat to be found in Vancouver during the spring. My city has more than its fair share of rainfall during the regular days of the year, but during springtime the rain flows. Luckily on Monday we had a wonderful break with a big dose of sunshine, so I could perform my newest secret service act.

Snap, Crackle, Pop

I love to perform acts of service, and I really like to do it when the act is easy, and it speaks to me on a resonant and feeling level. I constantly peruse the Internet for ideas, and I see a lot of classics like taking up garbage cans for your neighbor, baking cookies and giving them to friends, and paying for the car behind you when you go through a drive-through for food or drink. Don't get me wrong, I love the classics, but when someone comes up with a clever idea that matches our unique world today, I get really excited.

What Love Is

At last, it's February, the month of love, the month where we show our partners and friends how much we care for them by giving flowers, chocolate, and extravagant gifts. We say I love you with cards and dinners in fancy restaurants. This month puts a spotlight on our relationships, or lack of one. I was taught from a young age to seek out a partner in life and create a family, and I would find supreme happiness. That admonition to find joy through a family never rang true for me. It felt like love means you give up everything you want for some arbitrary "greater good." I had a vision of my life being swallowed up in the life of my partner and subsequent offspring. I would be trapped in a prison of my own creation.

Extended Project Example: Ethics And Science

Already, genetic engineering has sparked much controversy as debates rage on whether it is safe to modify the genetic information of living organisms or whether funding should be put into this research or used for something else. New developments in the genetics field has created even more controversy as to if we should use these new techniques despite the fact it will impact individual lives or even the whole society. On the one hand, procedures such as these can potentially save the lives of individuals born with genetic defects or even prevent babies with such defects from being born. These new developments range from being used for cosmetic reasons to designing the appearance of one's own child to aiding infertile adults who want their own blood-related children. With benefits such as these, however great they may be must always be weighed against the consequences. It must be asked if parents have the right to use technology which gives their child specified characteristics at birth or in the case of "savior siblings" have another baby to provide tissues/cells which can cure an already sick child. In this level 3 Edexcel extended project I looked into the field of genetics, focusing specifically on recent advancements in its technology its implications for the future. The project eventually achieved grade A and was 1 point away from an A*. This article will exclude the abstract and evaluation.
