PL 69/11: Twenty questions

Filed under: LATINA, Palestine, reference — plinius @ 12:00 pm

LATINA Fall is coming to Oslo.

After our training sessions in the West Bank and Gaza i September, and a series of on-line lectures in October and early November, our Palestinian participants are coming to Oslo November 21-25. In one of our sessions I will ask them to carry out an information search on the web, based on questions asked by teachers in Norwegian schools.

I have listed the original questions in Norwegian here. Below I give the English versions. I have introduced a few changes to make it easier to search in English, but left the basic structure unchanged.

  1. Where can I find information about the Silurian period?
  2. What are the main stages in the life cycle of the (North Atlantic) cod?
  3. I need facts about pop music, and especially about Michael Jackson’s music!
  4. How did the Incas view time, and which symbols did they use?
  5. How did the industrial revolution influence sosial and economic conditions in Ireland, and how can that explain the emigration to the United States?
  6. What is “bad faith” in Sartre’s existentialist perspective?
  7. How has the architecture of Ancient Greece influenced modern society?
  8. What kind of food and nutrition is typical for Rwanda?
  9. Traditional dishes or foodstuffs from Rhônes-Alpes (the French region)
  10. What was the climate like during the Pre-Cambrium?
  11. The historical origins of public health in Manchester
  12. I need information about refractometers and spectrometers: what these methods are, how they are defined, and how they are used.
  13. How are the cells of plants and animals built up?
  14. Contradictions between Freud and Sartre in their concepts of freedom
  15. Why is ergonomy important?
  16. The condition of Christianity in the Roman Empire
  17. What is the biological structure of viruses?
  18. What is important in an hermeneutical investigation?
  19. How do the various traditions in Islam differ from each other, and how do these differences influence today’s society?
  20. Can all animals swim?
