    ↑ To answer this, something I have been researching more on my own lately is the high incidence of gastric ulcers in racehorses. This was mentioned briefly in the first course as it is often related to the fact that racehorses are fed a higher proportion of grain to forage than average horses in order to provide enough energy for them to compete. This is something I found particularly interesting about nutrition and I would like to look more into why these higher levels of grains in the diet lead to ulcers and what some possible solutions to the problem are for a possible research paper or other project.

    Project proposal: My overall goal is to discover why large Empires fall. To do this I will examine a series of empires and their falls Towards the end of the semester, I will analyze these Empires and their falls together, and make a presentation. I will use various books and online resources, such as Jack Weatherford's book Genghis Khan and the Making of the Modern World. My online resources will include Crash Course and Extra History, two online history series.

    Your Dinosaur 101 paper still needs revision. Overall, work output needs to go way up, Zoe Lenee. If you plan to stick with the dinosaur theme, let me know and I'll help you think of some interesting questions to address. If not, let's get a new curriculum in place ASAP.
