  • Earth On Fire Analysis

    know forest fires took place in the U.S in states like California, Arizona, and New Mexico simply from flipping through news channels. This documentary opened my eyes to just how powerful forest fires can be and how they affect the ecosystem and environment around us. What also shocked me as the documentary came on was the opening quote, “Earth is the only planet in our solar system that burns ... and there 's one main reason why. Plants.” I didn’t really put into perspective that Earth is the only planet that can burn but never would have guessed plants are the core reason. Along with the stories that interested me in the documentary, it was shocking to hear Dr. Nate McDowell predict conifer trees will not exist in 2050 because mega-fires are killing them off. After seeing exactly what conifer trees look like, I know they are heavily populated in forest areas and for an ecologist to assume they will be extinct in 35 years is astonishing after being around for hundreds of thousands of…

  • Haida Gwaii Analysis

  • Color Perception Essay

    nose, and tongue. Our vision comes from our sense organ, our eyes and travels to the part of the brain that processes vision, the occipital lobe. From there what we see is a perception of what we are getting from our sense organ. Our perception of color in particular is shaped by the culture that we live in and biologically through the rods and cones in our eyes (How vision works, 2015). The way that the brain sees color is biologically based, and perception…

  • Example Of Perception Research Paper

    about how amazing it is to be able to perceive the world around me. I understood that from the retina to the brain, perception goes from complex to extremely complex. In other words, being able to experience the real world is one of the marvelous opportunities that we have. This phenomenon starts with light getting in contact with the cornea continuing to the back of the eyes, to the retina, before light goes to the optic nerve and end up in the brain. This process appears to be simple;…

  • The Cultural Myth Of Color Blindness

    One of the cultural myths that I have fallen into would have to be the ‘colorblindness is progress’. I’ve always seen past people and their color, or where they came from. I enclosed myself in the mindset of ‘I’m not racist because I don’t look at people’s skin color or background’. After learning about color blindness, and realizing that I was apart of it, I now know that this is the wrong way to view humans. Color blindness may seem like a good idea, and the intention might be of good intent;…

  • The Importance Of Social Norms In Public Places

    it is an unspoken violation of personal territories. When I entered the elevator, there was a couple standing squarely in the middle of the elevator. They saw me and moved to the back in order to let me in. Even though the elevator had enough space, they were willing to stand in a corner. There was plenty of room for the three of us. One floor down, two parents came in with their two kids, and the elevator started to get crowded. The original couple stood side by side before the family came…
