My name is Brandon Armitt and I am very excited to see what this class has to offer in terms of expanding my ability to critically think. There are many reasons why a science major doesn’t fit me, including my lack of interest in connecting to a any subject in the science field. I find myself more interested in working in the business world, particularly working with money and professional sports team. But at the same time I found this class particularly interesting because it touches base on so many topics that are questioned, but sometimes not answered. It has taken me a long time realize how much of an impact that science has on our lives, one of the strong reasons for me taking this course. In every aspect of life, in some form or fashion science seems to have a connection to it.
I have recently read something interesting online discussing whether a Paralympic athlete wearing a left-leg prostheses are at slight disadvantage to athletes with a right-leg prosthesis while running around a track (https://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2016/03/160316215133.htm). Is there a way to change this in order to create fair competition among all the athletes? There have been many different ways that have been discussed in order to this, but yet to be implemented.
