Another human sensation that plays a crucial role in our life is hearing. Now let’s take a closer look at the human hearing system and how auditory information is processed throughout.
What is the sound?
First, similar to light, sounds are also waves that have different wavelength and amplitude. Such difference creates sensational pitches and loudness that we use to describe the sound. Continue reading →
The past four weeks have been pretty slow in comparison to the rest of the time this experiment was being carried out. If you couldn’t tell from the title of this particular post, these past weeks have pretty much been damage assessment and cleanup protocol. This is why I was not able to recover anything biological because I have reached 100% mortality rate and I am not able to continue the tests. After considering where I am in the semester and where I will have to be in the experiment, I have decided to close up shop.
We have recently published an article about Katerina Šulková, a young scientist from the Czech Republic who has worked across Europe in laboratories. Today, I will be talking about having a translator as apart of my process, and how I have had to translate things on my own, tying into the larger idea of me taking on multiple roles.

Hi everyone! Because of Westtown having a visiting poet, I decided to take the opportunity to interview and converse with her, and write a little mini-biography on her. (Along with updates on my work.)
Toluwanimi Oluwafunmilayo Obiwole is a Nigerian-born, Colorado-raised visual and performance artist, educator, and organizer. At Westtown, she went by Toluwa.
During the last decade of the 19th century and the beginning of the 20th century, the world witnessed many advances in the medical field, especially the integration of modern technology into diagnosis and treatment. Classical patient history taking and physical examination were met with new technologies to diagnose various medical conditions.Continue reading →
Since my last blog post, there has been A LOT going on. However, I regret to inform you all that most of the events in the past couple weeks are not positive. Now, we must keep in mind that this is a biology project which means that there is going to be plenty of room for error in the experiment.
Over spring break, I had the opportunity to visit a Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) clinic in Xi’an opened by a friend of my parents. After my research and blog post on medicine in China in the Late Modern Era, I wanted to see how TCM has adapted to the modern world in which Western Medicine is dominating, pushing TCM aside as “Alternative Medicine.”Continue reading →
After some reflection and review of my timeline for this semester, I decided not to research the additional poet I was planning on researching, as I want to get started with my work as soon as possible. Personally, I feel that from learning about Ezra Pound and Langston Hughes, I accomplished my goals of
Learning some history about poetry
Exploring new writing styles
Understanding the difference between purpose and tension in a poem
After I did some research on Asian armor, specifically Japanese Samurai’s armor, I realize that almost all the armor around the world are surprisingly similar. Chainmail, layered metal plates and exclusively for male are abundant in virtually in every armor design around the world, some of the few differences are the arrangement of the metal plates and the embellishments. In addition, the designs and embellishments of the armors from whatever culture were already made to be flattering on human body, for example, the photos I provided in Blog 1 show how each piece was made and tailored to the wearer, so I took the inspiration quite directly and so I want to challenge myself a little bit more so I start looking into “Natural Armor.”
The last two weeks have been pretty slow compared to the rest of the time in the experiment. This is because the main focus of the past weeks have mainly been algae control and tank cleanliness. This has been difficult to maintain because the local aquarium does not have any snails in stock.
