    Does MUN count as Service?

    Funny that should be mentioned now. My friend and I are counting Boys Nation - a USA government simulation - sponsored by a non-profit as Creativity, and Service. I'll let you know if they let us count it.
  3. Don't doubt yourself. If you put the time in, with patience and effort, I think it will be average at worst. And based on how you posted, you appear to be quite articulate and concise. Good luck

    Universities in Netherlands

    No way! I visited there last October... do you like it? It's a tad expensive for my family, but the city was pretty great.

    Physics Sl TZ2. May 2014 Discussion P1 & P2

    Paper 3 for TZ1 was difficult but not impossible. I liked the Quantum Mechanics questions and the definitions weren't too bad. Messed up the drawing of the light spectrum by a stupid mental mistake, but overall not terrible.

    Physics Sl TZ2. May 2014 Discussion P1 & P2

    I think here at least, Paper 1 was hard and paper two was not as hard but still hard. I chose the Nuclear Physics and Thermal energy option B and thought that went alright. Glad its all over with now though haha.

    Canada or UK?

    I'd definitely like to know more! Since if I were to study in UK I would probably either choose Bath or Warwick Alright so the University of Bath is a pretty small but "Cosy" kind of campus situated on the top of a massive hill overlooking the entire city. From what you can probably see in youtube videos is that there is lots of grass space and a little mini lake. The mall/pavillion thing goes through the entire university (which is not very large, but like i said its cosy). The library looked pretty sweet, big glass building with lots of floors and tables (and they were filling up at 8 in the morning). There is a coffee shop and a restaurant also near the library and I think upstairs is the student union. From what i remember Bath isn't a very large university (10k undergraduates). There also is a little store situated to the left of the library with all things needed for cooking and living inside of it. I visited the faculty of Sociology/social policy (they knew their stuff). Lectures seemed pretty small with good technology, etc. Didn't get a chance to see the accomodation but did see the sports facilities (amazing) (24 hour sporting and library facilities). The students are constantly going into and back from the city, the buses that run like every 5 minutes are packed with students and the city is awsome. Lots of old big structures, good restaurants and a lot of people walking around (pretty vibrant). And apparently for the people who really like clubbing they all go to bristol once a week. It is international (i saw a lot of Asian and hispanic students), and the opportunities to meet people via accomodation, course, or unions are pretty high (like most universities). Let me know if you have any specific questions.

    Canada or UK?

    I visited Bath in October, and its pretty chill man. Costs a bit more if your not from the EU, but in terms of what I saw it looked pretty amazing with the best student satisfaction in the UK. Let me know if you want to know more, but out the uni's you listed thats all i can tell you about....

    Count yoga as creativity?

    Well I am pretty sure you could use it for action. But if you added some component to it in which you later on drew out how you felt during yoga, or something simple like that, you could conclude about the effect it has on your emotions with pictures or something... Just a thought. And it really doesn't seem that hard.
  13. Hey guys, So as I was creating my design labs I was just wondering how specific I needed to get to be able to list a material? My question is - How does the incline a catapult is stationed on, effect the range of the projected object? On the material list is it okay if I just put stuff like Toy CatapultIncline RampOr should it be something like (these are made up examples) PECK 400 Toy Launch CatapultSOS 333 4 meter incline rampI can't find any really specific toy catapult that would work so I am really hoping I don't have to do the second way.
  14. Howdy everyone, As the title suggests (although I am not required to submit a topic by a certain time) I am in need of some thoughts over some of my ideas for an English A1 probably Category 1 Essay. I have a couple ideas, and all input would be appreciated. Tolkien - Don't we all love him? I read how in the A1 language post it is not advised to do something so "overdone" and that the essay would lack originality. Well I happen to possess a compendium of Tolkien's letters to various people as he wrote the Lord of the Rings. So I am thinking of writing something along the lines of: " To what extent did letters by Tolkien written from x to x time encapsulate the common theme of x seen in the Lord of the Rings" I wouldn't think that would be History, but I am not for sure. Of course I will further specifying the topic later on, but what do you guys think of the basis? I don't know if anyone here has read the King Killer Chronicles by Patrick Rothfuss, but the next idea I had stemmed from the first book of that series The Name of the Wind. The major problem I have with topics regarding NOTW is that it is relatively new literature and is by no means very dense or deep. It is more along the lines of Harry Potter in terms of how hard it is to understand, but I really enjoy the themes and symbols in the book. " The underlying confrontation of suffering in particular scenes of deep sadness" - Please note this is just the rough idea of my topic. What do you guys think, more importantly is recent literature okay to write about? Another topic I thought of goes along with Cormac McCarthy's The Road. I would like to write about the presence of evil and the effects of evil on the father throughout the story. Now again my biggest issue deals with the originality of the topic. I know people have written about the Road in the past, and I want something original. Yay or Nay? The last topic I will trouble you guys with (and if you've read this far you rock!) is about the theme of pacifism in the Kite Runner. I would write something about " How does the common theme of pacifism in the Kite Runner, show the effects of anger and violence hurting the perpetrator more than the victim." Yet again I kinda just thought of this, and am not really sure what I could with this. So.... any feedback over any of these topics would be much appreciated, also if you have a preference, or dislike one especially I would be eager to hear why. Thanks guys!
  15. Alright guys, It's time to hear what you guys all think about one of the most pressing issues today. Should the United States, or any other country cough* (France) cough* intervene in the Syria conflict BECAUSE of the use of Chemical Weapons? My question is not to fix the civil war, my question is specifically related to the use of chemical weapons. Discuss!
