  1. MAY 2012 BIOLOGY SL in ENGLISH 7 Biology was the only exam I took this year since I was in IB Y1 but was allowed to do so since I had an extremely rich biology background. Pretty excited about my result.
  2. Emily is spot on. You could perhaps, as one of my friends did, compare his popularity/support (and the reasons for this) as opposed to Shah Pahlavi (whose popularity had crumbled at the time) and assess why/how he was effective in instigating a revolution from abroad. I have always found it fascinating how he began and led a revolution despite his absence within that very country. You will find many books and documentaries on this topic.
  3. Thanks! The electric pulse is very minor and there will be no long term effects to the organism. I will be sure to fill you in on an developments. What'ya think about the experiment?
  4. Hi, Turns out I had an allergy to mold and so I was forced to halt my experiment with Slime Mold. (The things IB makes you do) I have decided to test the abilities of planaria worms to learn how to retain memory (become conditioned). I will test their ability to learn how to solve a maze. I will also condition the organism with an electric pulse (very minute in force and time) and a white strobe to test if it shows the same reaction under only a white strobe. I will also test if this memory is bio-chemically transferred onto a daughter planaria (after I fragment it). I don't what to give to
  5. Hello forum, It sure is good to be back. I've been away for some time due to an intimate relationship with the IB. For the past few months I've been working on my biology Extended Essay and have drawn up what I feel is a rather developed and intricate design. My experiment is the following: I will be testing and challenging the ability of slime mold (Physarum polycephalum, in vtiro) to find the shortest route between two food sources (initial incubated oat flake and two other nutrition sources dispersed through the labyrinth. Though something like this has been done by researchers already, i
  6. Hey Desy! Nice to know some people still have manners. I mean this forum is meant to help people out, not discourage them. Now I didn't take it offensively because I know that I can speak English better than he can, but if an English learner is asking something and he is bombarded by such remarks, I doubt he'll want to post again. On a brighter note, I'm still cheering for those bonus points! You can do it!
  7. Thanks RWJ Fanboy. If I ever need assistance in the English language I'll be sure to pop into your little cave. "Well i hope the traffic is going good cause I posted it on FB last night. And yeah...the sort of crowd i shared it with...are technically minded Americans so you can forget about them clicking on ads." Now that is English in its finest form gentlemen. I initiated this post to inquire whether you people where procrastinating to be on here as I found the topic interesting. Also, by posting here, I exercise my freedom of expression and my right to expression of thought, bestowed to eve
  8. I don't know about you guys, but I'm not procrastinating to be on here.
  9. First of all thank you for your post brother. We are all allies. I really do not think that Iran will strike another country. I just think it's unfair that some countries have them while some do not. It is also Russia that is aiding Iran with building nukes (as any report will prove). Iran will obtain nukes and there is nothing any one can do. Purely defensive.
  10. I'm quite sorry, but I have no clue what you are on about. Iran would not mass-murder anyone. In fact, it is the same flag that you so pridefully bear on your profile that is the only country to have committed such atrocities. Look at Hiroshima and Nagasaki in World War II. Read up on it if you're so keen. Now what would make me more sad as a human is to see the bullying of countries by other countries. We denounce these things in school, but at a global scale we seem to ignore them. Iran is the victim of bullying by US and it's allies. Supply a bullied child with a bat and fist and he will be
  11. If anything, I would support Iran with a WMD. Equalize power in the Mid East. Give greater support for Palestine and against you know WHO.
  12. Every country should be allowed to possess nuclear technologies. Why can the US and other countries possess this while they denounce any other countries even attempting to acquire such technologies. You may be thinking, "But what about Iran! They are ruled by a nut job." So? Who are we to tell them that they can't have nuclear weapons. Answer in short: Either we all DO or DON'T have 'em. It's too late for the latter option, so I guess what solution remains.
  13. Hey forum! Share with the IB community what your EE topics were and what final marks you received. I plan on doing mine in English on the Roles of Societal Psychedelic Consumption in two dystopian novels. I have yet to receive my mark. Best of luck to you all.
