1. ## IA (HL) What is the format of a Maths HL Exploration

Thanks BTW what topic are doing it on?? I'm doing it on the Trapezoidal rule
2. ## Ab Initio Is N5 = Ab Initio

Hi. As the title says it all, is N5 level in any foreign language equal to Ab Initio. As I'm learning Japanese N5 along with French AB, i'm curious whether they both fall under the same level
3. ## IA (HL) What is the format of a Maths HL Exploration

Exactly. IB has not yet provided samplars of Maths Explorations. I have included an Introduction, Rationale, Aim, Body (investigation) and reflection/conclusion I just wanted to check whether I was on the right track?
4. ## Changing subjects

I don't think you could and even if he does wishes to change his subjects, it doesn't make sense after studying almost 2 years a subject which one didn't like..... That's too late but it's not a feasible solution at all as he has to study+complete assignments of that subject within a very short period of time... Hope it helps

I can't say for HL but for SL we have to do 3 WT's. We first did one from Part4 and the other 2 is our choice from which part to choose. My advice is that just do the best for 2 WT's and the other 2 make them as just a piece of evidence to IB and your teacher that you've completed them. So good luck !

10. ## Is it ethical to eat meat?

Well it seems that you are unaware of the term "halal". It means flowing of the blood out of an animal by swiftly cutting the windpipe and the jugular veins. Therefore, this principle remains the same throughout. Regardless whether the animal is stunned or not before it is slaughtered, this method is compulsory. As it is stated in the website link you provided, it states that ", but now Haluk Anil of the University of Bristol, UK, and colleagues have shown that the amount of blood drained from the animal, and the rate of blood loss, is the same regardless of whether or not it is stunned first." (http://www.newscientist.com/article/dn10712-halalstandard-slaughtering-doesnt-need-animals-awake.html) So thank you for proving "the halal guy's" point
11. ## Is it ethical to eat meat?

PORK FORBIDDEN That's the reason pork is forbidden rather than illogical or coincidental reasons such as the "geography" of a place. Islam is meant for the whole of humanity rather than just the arabs.............
12. ## Is it ethical to eat meat?

Professor Schultz and his colleague Dr. Hazim of the Hanover University, Germany, proved through an experiment, using an electroencephalograph (EEG) and electrocardiogram (ECG) that *Islamic slaughter is THE humane method of slaughter* and captive bolt stunning, practiced by the Western method, causes severe pain to the animal. The results surprised many. Experimental Details: 1. Several electrodes were surgically implanted at various points of the skull of all animals, touching the surface of thebrain. 2. The animals were allowed to recover for several weeks. 3. Some animals were slaughtered by making a swift, deep incision with a sharp knife on the neck cutting the jugular veins and carotid Arteries of both sides; as also the trachea and esophagusHalal Method. 4. Some animals were stunned using a captive bolt pistol humane slaughter by the western method. 5. During the experiment, EEG and ECG were recorded on all animals to record the condition of the brain and heart during the course of slaughter and stunning. Results and Discussion: I - Halal Method 1. The first three seconds from the time of Islamic slaughter as recorded on the EEG did not show any change from the graph before slaughter, thus indicating that the animal did not feel any pain during or immediately after the incision. 2. For the following 3 seconds, the EEG recorded a condition of deep sleep - unconsciousness. This is due to a large quantity of blood gushing out from the body. 3. After the above mentioned 6 seconds, the EEG recorded zero level, showing no feeling of pain at all. 4. As the brain message (EEG) dropped to zero level, the heart was still pounding and the body convulsing vigorously (a reflex action of the spinal cord) driving maximum blood from the body: resulting in hygienic meat for the consumer. II - Western method by C.B.P. Stunning 1. The animals were apparently unconscious soon after stunning. 2. EEG showed severe pain immediately after stunning. 3. The hearts of the animal stunned by C.B.P. stopped beating earlier as compared to those of the animals slaughtered according to the Halal method resulting in the retention of more blood inthe meat. This in turn is unhygienic for the consumer.
13. ## Is it ethical to eat meat?

Meat is nutritious and rich in complete protein Non-vegetarian food is a good source of excellent protein. It contains biologically complete protein i.e. all the 8 essential amino acid that are not synthesized by the body and should be supplied in the diet. Meat also contains iron, vitamin B1 and niacin. Humans have Omnivorous set of teeth If you observe the teeth of herbivorous animals like the cow, goat and sheep, you will find something strikingly similar in all of them. All these animals have a set of flat teeth i.e. suited for herbivorous diet. If you observe the set of teeth of the carnivorous animals like the lion, tiger or leopard, they all have a set of pointed teeth i.e. suited for a carnivorous diet. If you analyze the set of teeth of humans, you find that they have flat teeth as well as pointed teeth. Thus they have teeth suited for both herbivorous as One may ask, if Almighty God wanted humans to have only vegetables, why did He provide us also with pointed teeth? It is logical that He expected us to need and to have both vegetarian as well as non-vegetarian food. Human beings can digest both vege-tarian and non-vegetarian food The digestive system of herbivorous animals can digest only vegetables. The digestive system of carnivorous animals can digest only meat. But the digestive system of humans can digest both vegetarian and non-vegetarian food. If Almighty God wanted us to have only vegetables then why did He give us a digestive system that can digest both vegetarian as well as non-vegetarian food? Even plants can feel pain They further argue that plants cannot feel pain, therefore killing a plant is a lesser crime as compared to killing an animal. Today science tells us that even plants can feel pain. But the cry of the plant cannot be heard by the human being. This is due to the inability of the human ear to hear sounds that are not in the audible range i.e. 20 Hertz to 20,000 Hertz. Anything below and above this range cannot be heard by a human being. A dog can hear upto 40,000 Hertz. Thus there are silent dog whistles that have a frequency of more than 20,000 Hertz and less than 40,000 Hertz. These whistles are only heard by dogs and not by human beings. The dog recognizes the masters’ whistle and comes to the master. There was research done by a farmer in USA who invented an instrument which converted the cry of the plant so that it could be heard by human beings. He was able to realize immediately when the plant itself cried for water. Latest researches show that the plants can even feel happy and sad. It can also cry. Cost of meat is reasonable since all aren’t non-vegetarians I do not mind if some people are pure vegetarians. However they should not condemn non-vegetarians as ruthless. In fact if all become non-vegetarians then the present non-vegetarians would be losers since the prices of meat would rise.

14. ## ENGLISH B EXTENDED ESSAY

Greetings! I think that would be too lengthy for 4000 word EE. But if you wish try comparing "1984'" with another novel in the same genre, same era, etc. For example if 2 American authors of the same era are speaking about World Wars then their opinions may vary, etc. Then i suppose you should go about doing it give it your best shot. Hope it helps (Though i havent read that book I can't think of much)
15. ## chemistry Extended essay problem

I think that's a good one. All you have to do is make some twists and changes as you may consider that it falls under the category of bio-chemistry. Try being more specific on what aspect it is healthy. If you know some chemicals which are involved especially organic ones then compare it to other tablets in terms of quantity,etc.
