Ideas for a Sweet 16 in NYC?

Question by goody2shoes: Ideas for a Sweet 16 in NYC?
For my Sweet 16, my mom is going to bring 4 of my friends and I to stay overnight in NYC. What are some fun things we can do and good places to eat? Also what good hotels can you recommend? We already came up with these:

-Go to the top of the Empire State Building
-Take a 2 hr cruise around NY on the Circle Line
– Visit St. Patrick’s Cathedral
-Rockerfeller Center
-Central Park (Maybe a horse drawn carriage ride)
-Possibly see an off Broadway Play so it isn’t too expensive
-Then just go shopping at Sephora, Toys R Us and Saks NY, etc.

For eating we were thinking of going to China Town or Mars 2112. Do you have any more suggestions. This will be in the summer also. Thanks!!

any ideas of a relaxing enjoyable time ? preferably a beach..?

Question by : any ideas of a relaxing enjoyable time ? preferably a beach..?
i want to go somewhere with a beach, not somewhere in or really close to the US but around the other half of the world.
Ive been to the states,china,korea,thailand,philippines and i really do like those places but this time i want to go somewhere really peaceful but fun,like a beach with shopping centers or a boardwalk(if they have those there), and lots of fun entertainment. Also like a really beautiful scenery and maybe scuba diving. horseback riding sounds fun, and Id rather not hike. I wanted a cruise, but i don’t think a cruise,,my mind is open and id LOVE to hear of places that are affordable and worth the visit ASAP ! thank you 🙂
oh and id like to go for spring break. it’ll probably be just me. id like to meet new people, maybe experience another culture?not really sure, just some ideas.. but definately a beach, because of a move to another country,,i went through rough times, and i miss the beach and need some time to have fun and let the stress out. so im wondering whether there is a place that’s both really peaceful and yet exciting. and so the states is not an option. i hope this helps more

Hands down, Seychelles!! Stay at a guest house, and not hotels…you can get nice bungalows right at the beach. The islands are famous for huge granite rocks laying around, and it offers great scuba diving.

Ideas for Oceanography Research Project?

Question by Claudia: Ideas for Oceanography Research Project?
I’m taking an online course in oceanography and for my final project need to submit a professional research proposal that will solve a current mystery/problem in oceanographical sciences. (for those of you who are unsure, oceanography covers all marine sciences, including but not limited to marine biology, geology, and chemistry) By the end of this week I need to submit my idea for my proposal. I’m not asking anybody to do this for me like some lazy answers people, but I would love some ideas for this project, as my mind is really at a blank. A few suggestions of oceanography mysteries or problems that CAN BE SOLVED in some way would be greatly appreciated!

One of the ideas I’ve considered is research on the rescue of the Chinese River Dolphin species, a species that has gone effectively extinct (there are maybe a dozen left in the wild, probably less) in the Yangtze River in China, the only place they are found. Any ideas on a project I could make out of this??

Note: I’m sure that at least half of the class is going to make their report on global warming and its effects on the ocean. Though this is a very important topic, I’m incredibly sick of talking about it and there really is a very limited range of research you can do. So unless you have a really unique idea of what I could talk about, I’m really not interested in global warming.

Answer by tom92117
Here’s a copied paragraph regarding sonar and pilot whales. It concludes with what do we do about it? Come up with a plausible solution and you have your paper.

“Active military sonars can harm whole populations of whales and dolphins. The latest evidence, sparse as it is, suggests that cetaceans may have learned to fear mid-frequency active sonars, and may flee from them when still very distant. That may deny them critical habitats, travel routes, and significant behaviors, and may even force them ashore. The cetaceans too close to the starting sonars may behave in ways that debilitate and kill them, or be directly injured by the sound. A short while ago this would have been hyperbole. Today it is a reasonable and precautionary assertion based on a consistent trend, made with the best scientific information available. The tragedy is that there are few ideas of what to do about it.”
