Ecological Responses to Climate Change in a Complex Ocean By jrhajiak on February 24, We have entered a period of rapid environmental change, and ecological responses to this change are beginning to outpace our ability to understand and predict them. Where do we go from here? By jrhajiak on February 24, Polls show that citizens around the globe overwhelmingly accept the scientific evidence that our climate is changing for reasons that are largely human-caused, but our political leadership lags behind.

Was it in the library? While couples like to think their love story is special and unique, upon greater consideration, a thread of commonalities emerges amongst UBC relationships that makes this narrative less convincing. Day one of first-year orientation? Were you partners in a lab or part of an icebreaker at a club?
This predictable start to the relationship is followed by a familiar set of challenges. Primarily, the scheduling conflict. Overwhelmed by the post-secondary workload and classes, you struggle find time to see each other. Ultimately, you compromise with “the joint study session,” an opportunity to demonstrate both your dedication to each other and academic rigour.

UBC Study Up to a third of the gender math gap could be due to online gaming, according to new Canadian research. New research from the University of British Columbia UBC found that daily use of multiplayer online games lifts math scores in teens, but only for boys. Teenage girls scored two to three percentage points lower than boys on standard math scores in the more than 56 Organization for Economic Development and Co-operation OEDC countries the researchers examined.
Up to a third of that difference can be attributed to online gaming, lead researcher and UBC economist Nicole Fortin said in a news release. Girls are forced to swim upstream to be on equal footing. The study was recently published in Research in Labor Economics. Researchers looked at data from the Program for International Student Assessment PISA , which has recorded math scores as well as digital engagement in year-olds since In the most recent data, more than half a million students took the test, according to the PISA website.
Nearly half of boys played a computer game every day, compared to 16 per cent of girls, the researchers noted. When it came to collaborative, multi-player games, 36 per cent of boys played daily, versus 7 per cent of girls. Encouraging girls to take part in gaming culture may not be the answer It’s not clear whether encouraging girls to play video games would help close the “math gap,” Fortin said in the news release.

Kids Your Stories To celebrate our 85th Anniversary we asked our guests to share their most memorable White Spot stories. Here are a few heartwarming favourites from our collection for your reading pleasure. The blueberries must have been very special, because she remembers being with her daddy as he delivered huge cases of them frequently to the back of the original White Spot on Granville Street where they made yummy blueberry desserts!
A stranger would often appear from inside and visit with her dad. To this day, I like dining at our local White Spot in Richmond. Eating out was a very big deal for a family of modest income but as my birthday present, Mom and Dad agreed to take me out to my very first restaurant. What a cool looking building. The food was even better and my habit began.
My wife and I did most of our dating at the Cambie Street White Spot, and when it came time to ‘pop the question’ it was at the North Road location in Burnaby with something shiny in her fries!

There are separate pages for Medieval Welsh Poetry and for The Welsh Triads ; this page offers a brief introduction to the prose tales collectively referred to as The Mabinogi or often but incorrectly as The Mabinogion. From to , Lady Charlotte Guest , only daughter of the 9th Earl of Lindsey and wife of the Welsh industrialist Sir Josian John Guest, published her translation of the medieval Welsh prose tales she called The Mabinogion.
There are two collections of these tales, one in the White Book of Rhydderch, and the other in the Red Book of Hergest. The White Book is the older manuscript, dating from around , but the only complete text is found in the Red Book, of around

We welcome each university to organize a group of students to study course packages in the beautiful campus of the University of British Columbia. Many course packages have a minimum and maximum class size, so we encourage you to register your students early. Course packages that do not have the minimum number of students will not be offered, but students may transfer to other packages. Courses do not receive UBC credit but credit may be granted by the student’s home university at its discretion.
Using their understanding of these concepts, chemical engineers re-organize and transform matter and energy to produce new substances and materials. From the pharmaceuticals we take when we are sick, to the fuel we put in our vehicles, to the plastics, alloys and polymers that we find in our homes, in our phones and virtually everywhere around us, chemical engineers are involved, always keeping economic and environmental sustainability in mind. This course provides an introduction to the chemical engineering discipline, first by providing an overview of the physical processes and laws involved in the conversion of raw materials into refined products, and secondly by applying these concepts into more practical applications and designs.
Students will have the opportunity to perform laboratory experiments illustrating some key concepts, as well as establish connections with newly acquired theory by visiting operating industrial facilities. This is an introductory course, and no prior knowledge of chemical engineering is therefore required. This course provides an introduction to biological engineering, covering subjects that include introductions to microbiology, cell biology, and genetic engineering, bioprocessing for the production of biofuels, foods and pharmaceuticals, biomaterials, and recent advances in tissue engineering.
Given these astounding technological advances, human beings are, as a species, faced with new ethical quandaries, and the ethics and social aspects of bioengineering are therefore also discussed. Participants will have the opportunity to apply theory into practice through lab experiments, and to witness bioprocessing and sustainable design in action through a tour of a local biological waste treatment plant.
Video Transcript Transcript for Polyamory: The End of Marriage? Just for a minute, let’s do a thought experiment. Let’s set aside all of the emotion and consider whether the evangelists for open marriage might have a point. Most marriages in america do end in divorce so maybe adding other lovers to the mix could improve the odds.
To test this extremely controversial theory, we went into the home of what is known as a polyamorous family.

Early life[ edit ] The Trudeau family can be traced to Marcillac-Lanville in France in the 16th century and to a Robert Truteau — He had an older sister named Suzette and a younger brother named Charles Jr. The family had become quite wealthy by the time Trudeau was in his teens, as his father sold his prosperous gas station business to Imperial Oil. Trudeau’s father died when Pierre was 15 years old.
This death hit him and the family very hard emotionally. Trudeau remained very close to his mother for the rest of her life. Lalonde asserts that Trudeau’s later intellectual development as an “intellectual rebel, anti-establishment fighter on behalf of unions and promoter of religious freedom” came from his experiences after leaving Quebec to study in the United States, France and England, and to travel to dozens of countries.

Search Teenage boys report more dating violence than girls While people tend to assume that the girl is always the victim, a new study shows that teenage boys report more dating violence than girls.
