This was very interesting. I love honey and will now work on buying local honey. It’s very important that we save the bee population. So many animals are going extinct.

Great post! Very interesting. We use our phones so much and are constantly on them. It’s scary and interesting that there are actual withdrawal problems when we aren’t on our phones. Makes me want to put down my post.
The subject I am focusing on for my Curious Researcher project is disability. I’ve been looking at how the disabled are treated and viewed upon. I’ve been researching what exactly is means to be disabled. I also3 Comments
I think that this subject is one that is greatly necessary in our society today. People living with disabilities have tremendous strength, as do the families that support them. I can’t wait to hear about the topics you uncover and I think it would be very interesting to see how people with disabilities face discrimination, as well as dealing with their symptoms.
I really found you’re topic question to be very intriguing. What does it mean to be disabled? I feel like there is a stark contrast between someone being disabled and someone being handicapped. I consider myself disabled because I have to wear corrective lenses in order to drive, see the board at school, or even recognize faces. But I’m not really sure everyone else sees me as disabled because visual problems can be fixed as easily as wearing glasses. That somehow makes me hopeful though. I feel as technology progresses, we may find cures/fixes to other more severe disabilities, to the point that they are not even considered disabilities anymore because it can be fixed so easily. I hope for the day when paralysis can be fixed with a simple operation like poor eyesight and people don’t even see it as a disability.

I think this is a great subject to do a research project on. It is something we are seeing more and more of today. This should be very interesting and I am interested in reading your research paper.
