Assembling My Experiment and Beginning Water Stabilization -Nick

This has been the most exciting two weeks so far in the duration of this project. This is because all of my materials arrived, so I was able to start to assemble my experiment. This also meant that all of my knowledge about my experiment and my procedure because I needed to properly compile all of my materials and place everything with intention and purpose.

Genitourinary Cancer​: NBT-II -Dhillon

NBT-II, Nara Bladder Tumor No. 2, currently our most promising cell line since receiving news that the RT-4 cell line is not a possibility and any other human or primate-derived cell line. NBT-II is a tumor that is derived from the urinary bladder of a male rat. Although it is not RT-4 which is an epithelial bladder cancer cell line derived from a 63-year-old caucasian male and was the initial cell line I was planning on using. One major issue, regardless of the cell line I use, is how I am going to store the cells without liquid nitrogen when I am on breaks. This is because many cell lines require liquid nitrogen as a means of storage over lengthier periods of time (weeks).

Gathering Materials and Planning Setup – Nick

   These two weeks have been a bit of a change. Instead of looking at different research articles and various YouTube tutorials, I was actually able to make this vision start to come to life with the addition of the first round of materials. This means that the next phase of my project is beginning.

The Trigonometry of Blasters! – Dylan

Blasters are such a staple to video games. Think back to space invaders, that game is almost completely just a simple blaster that moves side to side. That works great if you only want to shoot in a single direction, but what happens when you would like to aim in a full 360 degrees? Continue reading

Graph 1.1 Change in total fertility rate of the global average, France, and Germany, from 1960 to 2016, data obtained from World Bank Open Data (“Fertility rate”).

In this blog post, I have carried out a comparative analysis of the fertility rates of Germany and France, which have traditionally been compared to each other in the field of birth rate research. I was initially going to conduct research on Germany alone, however, I decided to make a change in my plan for two reasons: to learn what makes France an appropriate target of comparison to Germany, and to see whether comparing different countries allows me to identify the unique characteristics of each country in a more effective manner.

An Update / Lyndon B. Johnson Part I – Nawal

Since my last blog post, I have decided to take my independent in a different direction. Two weeks ago, I sat down and watched a documentary on Robert F Kennedy’s life, which is what my last post was summarizing. I watched it for myself to understand who he was so I could later dive into his assassination and the effects of it. While watching it, I found the politics around him intriguing. He grew up in what I would call a comfortable upper middle class family, and throughout his political career, he became increasingly involved in the War on Poverty, and in America’s racial relations, something I would not have expected. While watching the documentary, I realized I wanted to know more, so with some help, I have decided to take my research in a different direction. Continue reading

Data Collection Continued – Alina

Updated Table

If you remembered from my last blog, my focus in this project has recently been on figuring out a way to scrape data off of the travel websites using code instead of doing it manually since it is indeed a tedious job. Of course, while working on the code, I have also kept with the primitive collecting method since data collection is the objective of this month’s work in my project. So here’s an updated version of my data table: Continue reading

We’re in a serious relationship…actually a few…–Sabrina

Establishing another organization as your partner is not just a title or something you get to mention on your website. Having relationships with other nonprofit organizations or other business professionals who are in the same field as you and/or specialize in something you need to be done is crucial to the survival of your company. So…how do you get a partner and maintain your relationship? Continue reading

Medicine in the High Middle Ages– Yuchen

In this blog post, I would explore medicine during the High Middle Ages by using a similar format as that of my previous blog post, which focused on three general regions–Europe, the Middle East and China.

Medicine during the High Middle Ages

Europe–

The expansion and consolidation of power of the kings of France, Spain and England gradually stabilized Europe, restoring vitality to medicine and other fields of study.   Continue reading
