This video is about food and mouths. We asked the question "Would you ever
put something in your mouth if you didn't know where it came from?" We got
shocking and startling replies from people eating at the HUB. This
documentary is concluded with words of advice.
The focus of section 22's blog is
questioning economism as a lifestyle. For all of us that put this video
together we felt that the very basic parts of economism were the most stressful
parts of our lives.
summary, this video poses the question, can one person really make a

our Earth is facing. But in reality there is a lot you can do to
help! Small things can add up in big ways, and the students involved in

Welcome to Week 6 of BiSci! This week we have challenged
our conditioned beliefs about insects. Section 34 spent about 15 minutes
interacting with the Madagascar Hissing Cockroaches that visited Monday's

Prior to this week, several of us had never even been asked to contemplate that
relationship. We were stumped. Therefore, as section 29 of BiSci3, we would
like to extend to you the opportunity to reflect upon your own personal
relationship with trees. Through our own reflections and pictures of what we
find to be remarkable trees, we created this video to offer as a gift to the
BiSci community. What can you share to continue our conversation?
In week 4 of BiSci, we discussed death and common traditions, as well as beliefs surrounding death in the United States. What are your beliefs about death? How do you feel about your own eventual death?
This week's video was created with the help of Cassy Correa and her sections, 5 and 32. Also, check out the "Nourishment" tab on our blog to view an amazing video that they found!
In week 3 of BiSci, we discussed alternative options to childbirth. What are your thoughts and reflections surrounding this new way of thinking? Would you consider an alternative birthing option? Did your opinions change after lecture today?
In week two of BiSci we began discussing beliefs on how the universe was created. Whether your beliefs are influenced by science, religion, or possibly a blending of the two; this entry is geared toward your story about the history of the universe. What are your beliefs on this topic?
