Science Fact of the Month-July 2010

Saturday, July 31, 2010 @ 11:07 PM
Abbas Karimjee[ Administrator/ Owner]

  In follow up of  last month’s fact which covered The Theory  of Natural Selection, we will now look at the Theory of Social Darwinism [ Survival of  the Fittest], which misused the theory of Charles Darwin’s, Natural Selection by applying it to  the social and political world.

 The  Theory of Survival of the Fittest was first coined by  English philosopher, Herbert Spencer.  The theory involved  various  nationalities and  races believing that they were superior in strength and intelligence  and  thus  possessed the right and   obligation to dominate over  the  other “inferior” races, who were believed to lack these qualities. They believed that these “inferior” races would ultimately be conquered  or replaced because of their “natural disadvantage.”.  Those who  accepted this are known as Social  Darwinists.

Although this theory is no   longer accepted by reputable Anthropologists today, there are many  unjust  examples from the past which demonstrate this behaviour. One such example is the cruel treatment of Aboriginal people in North America during the time period.

 Do you have any other examples  to share? Share  them in the comments  section.

The Music of  the Month feature is   a  new feature where I post   a  new song which I find  appealing and meaningful  . I will also talk aboutwhy this music is great.I look forward  to sharing the music of my life  with you.

 Dala Girls- Lonely Girl
[youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LAbmudP9XXY]
I think that lonely girl is a good song because  its actually telling women to respect themselves by being modest and avoiding loosing btheir self respect to men who treat them as disposable objects  as opossed to person.It encourages women to  be strong in times of lonliness instead of allowing themselves to be treated like that.To me this song is
a song to remind  teens to be  good.I have always appreciated  this bands music not just cause i like it cause
they have a meaning for every song.This months song is Lonely Girl,by Dala.

Enjoy!!!!

SGU/ SGA Crossover Finalized

Tuesday, July 20, 2010 @ 09:07 PM

UPDATE -It was revealed in the San Diego Comic Con  that  the two Atlantis guest stars   scheduled to appear in  the fifteenth episode of Stargate Universe’s second season, Seizure  are David Hewlett and Robert Picardo who will reprise in their  roles as Dr. Rodney McKay and   Richard Woolsey respectively. A further overview will be posted shortly.

Producer, Joseph Mallozzi revealed on his blog that   two  cast members from Stargate Atlantis will  guest star in their  respective roles  in  a crossover for the 15th episode of  Stargate Universe’s second season entitled,  Seizure. There is no word yet on exactly which  characters will be reappearing.

As a result of these appearances,  Mallozzi  indicated  that  slight changes will be made to the script of  he impending   Stargate Atlantis film,  Stargate Extinction. ““There was a reluctance to move ahead with an SGA crossover, particularly on my part,” Mallozzi said, “because the feeling was it would step on the timing of the SGA movie, Stargate: Extinction, the events of which directly [followed] the Atlantis series finale, ‘Enemy At the Gate .’But given the delay on the movie front and the idea premise pitched out by Remi Aubuchon and Brad Wright, it was decided to go ahead with the crossover.  Not a big deal, but it will require some changes to the Stargate: Extinction timeline which, in turn, will beg a host of questions, some of which will be answered in episode #15, some of which won’t … at least not right away.” To see a list of these hosts of questions, head  over to Mallozzi’s blog.

Mallozzi has since repeatedly asserted  that the  involvement of Atlantis characters will not affect the  core conflict  of the film. He specifically indicated that “The changes made to the script will have to do with the timing of events (essentially the set-up) and won’t influence the heart of the story”. Essentially, the appearances will help provide  certain details  regarding  the aftermath of the series finale of Stargate Atlantis,  Enemy At the Gate which will in turn require  the script to be altered in a way so that such details are not repeatedly conveyed and that the storyline remains  true   to the timeline. Having the Stargate Extinction  storyline occur after the  appearances on Stargate Universe would  therefore not contradict with any of the circumstances or situations surrounding the characters’  appearances in  the series  and the situation on Atlantis as  the  film would take place afterwards.

We   look forward to seeing  the Atlantis cast members reprise in their roles  in Stargate Universe and we   strongly hope that  we will eventually  have the opportunity to revisit the characters of  Atlantis in greater  detail through Stargate Extinction.
