When writing a paper I always try free writing everything that is going on in my mind about a topic to get it all out in the open. Even if my thoughts are biased, completely random or repetitive, or have no truth to it I find it easier to see which side of the argument I more agree on or if any of my thoughts have any real basis to them. After I get all of my thoughts in the open I underline key points and try researching them to see if there is any research to support them. Illegal aliens are as stated illegal; illegal acts are to be judged and then condemned by law and then taken care of. The act of crossing over the border is illegal; it is unfair to the thousands of immigrants trying to come over to the states the legal way; this is perhaps also why the process to come over is so hard to begin with. Amnesty should not be granted because it would only worsen conditions for those already in the states; illegal immigrants should not gain access to social security benefits; if they have been paying for it to begin with it is because the only way they could be paying for it is through the use of some one elses stolen ssc number; if they came over illegally they did not have one to begin with; why give them something they did not earn? Illegal immigrants would take advantage of welfare and medical aid; it just doesn’t seem fair to give those that are illegal get better benefits than those that are already here. We are also suffering; the USA has fallen into a state of job loss and financial crisis. We are struggling as is, so why or even how would we have the recourses to provide for illegal immigrants as well? For them to gain amnesty, it would mean taking away from the paying American; more taxes would ensue, and more suffering would follow. Half of what I wrote is completely opinionated and the underlined portions could have some basis of truth; I would then…...

Essay : on Ways to Tackle Poverty

...Examine the ways in which government policies attempt to deal with the problem of poverty (24marks) There are four approaches used to help deal with poverty these are the social democratic, new right, third way and Marxist. This essay will include the different ways in which the government policies attempt to deal with the problem of poverty. A Social democrats way of dealing with poverty is by offering universal benefits, which essentially means benefits that everyone is entitled to. This is useful when dealing with the problem of poverty because it creates no social stigma in receiving benefits. For example if there was no universal benefit than because people might feel humiliated of taking it as they don’t want to be labelled, which may discourage people of claiming benefits that they are entitled to. This is also proven by the low amount of people of taken up means benefits. In the 1980s no means benefits had more than 80% take up. The downfalls of universal benefits are that it creates a ‘benefit culture’ where everyone is depending on benefits as a way of living and don’t try and get out of it. This creates a poverty trap in society. Alternatively , the new right approach supports the means tested benefits which is suggests that benefits should only be restricted to those who are very poor and need it the most. This is useful when dealing with the problem of poverty because it’s cheaper than the universal and the government doesn’t waste its money as it’s only......

How to Get Started with Fountain Pens

...agree that starting with one of these options is a great way to see if you’d even enjoy writing with a fountain pen without risking too much from the wallet. Some of the most popular and most highly recommend choices in this category are: Pilot 78G – Get started with cartridges, but a converter is also available, and nibs are interchangeable with the Pilot Plumix. It can also be converted to be eyedropper filled (greater ink capacity) quite easily, with no tools required. Platinum Preppy – Dirt cheap pen, but with engineering beyond it price. The nibs are high quality manufactured, the same nibs are found on much more expensive pens. Some people don’t like the look because of the logo, but if you order a 4.5 oz bottle of some Noodler’s inks, you’ll get a free Preppy that’s been converted to eyedropper filled and the logo removed. The nibs are interchangeable. Pilot Metropolitan – A quite attractive pen, the Metro will suite you well in the workplace. It’s quality belies its price. A cartridge converter is also available. This is a $15 pen that should cost much more (but don’t tell anyone). You may be asking yourself, is that all there is to it? Of course NOT! Do you think we at B&B would stoop so low as that?! There’s Ink, Paper, Wax Seals, and a whole host of other goodies to try! The pens mentioned above each come with a cartridge or 2 to get you started, but you’ll probably soon find that you would like to......

Writing an Essay: the College Way

...Writing an Essay: The College Way One of the many tasks expected of college students is to know how to write well organized and developed essays. Writing an essay is not simply going about a certain topic. There are particular rules a student must apply when writing in order to submit an acceptable essay, which if they are not met, the student may face strict consequences that could even lead to expulsion. Students will learn the different techniques of writing a professional essay, like the differences between quoting, paraphrasing and summarizing. In an essay, the student must use the correct types of citation required and know the importance of citing sources properly and the consequences of citing improperly. Many of the courses at the college level require students to write an essay at one point or another. In the process of writing these essays, students will often use quotations to reinforce the argument or position presented in the essay. Quotations must be worded exactly as extracted from its source, and credit must always be given where it’s due. However, sometimes students may use paraphrasing as another way to support an idea. Paraphrasing is basically taking the information from a chosen source and expressing it in one’s own words instead of just repeating it word by word. On another note, summarizing will also be used whilst writing an essay. Instead of including an entire article to back up one’s position, a student can summarize that article by stating the......

Don't Get Me Started

...Don’t get me started on… Twilight. Twilight… terrifying, teeny, torture! A sickening series, spawning sequel, after sequel, after sequel. A tale of teeny love set amongst the fashionable vampire culture. I hate it! I hate vampires! I hate the banal storylines! I hate the sickening simpering simpletons posing as actors! “Wait!” I hear the cries of a thousand poor deluded teenage girls. “Why do you hate us so much?” Firstly, and I really regret having to tell you this but… it’s not real. Those obsessive compulsives who fantasise about living their lives within these films will find that their dreams shattered by unrealistic expectations of perfection. All the characters are perfect. Every perfect plastic smiling girl has two perfect (plastic) smiling boys after her. No zits. No farts. No burps. Just, perfection. All this results in is disappointment. They can never be as perfect as Bella, Edward or Jacob – they will never find their perfect plastic partner for a simple reason: It’s. Not. Real! Secondly Twilight is dangerous. It warps the minds of sweet, naive, innocents. How? I hear you ask. Well, is it perfectly normal to want to sink your choppers into someone’s neck? Noooo! I mean hickeys are one thing, but drinking their blood? Come on! People are jailed for less! Not to mention the fact that religious groups are up in arms about these films. Protests have broken out (ironically becoming violent) about the message these films are encouraging: an unhealthy interest in the...

One Way to Get Off

...One way to get off I suddenly awoke from the deep sleep that drugged my mind. Darkness engulfed me. I found myself in a compacted room that was filled with a metallic smell. I tried to move my hands from behind my back but there was a great force that was restraining my movement. A thundering noise echoed through the shadows. It frightened me to my very soul. I was trapped in between the dull grey walls. The hard metal cuffs were biting into the flesh of my wrists. A moan came from the cubicle next to me. I could feel a frisson of fear surging inside of me, gnawing away at my soul. Terrified. I asked in a trembling voice; “Who are you?” A startling voice replied back; “I am Irene. I do not know how I came here” Soon enough my hands were free, and the doors to the cubicle drastically opened. Light shone on Irene’s face, her eyes glistening and her brown hair shining. She wore a shaggy, black button down top and dirty work boots. She seemed frightened from the darkness, but her skin was so porcelain, both pale and perfect. I couldn’t get over the fact that her face looked like a perfect china doll you’d purchase at an antique store. Her lips were a glowing red, and her jaw was so pointed, falling perfectly with her diamond shaped face. Her forehead was rather wide, her eyes almond, her noise pointed and her mouth, a cupid’s bow. Her teeth were perfect. And she had very high cheekbones. Her face would get the attention of anybody, but her clothes were such shabby things.......

When Money Get S in the Way

...Kevin Perez Unit 2 Research Paper 1 Problem Solving Thur AM When Money Gets in the Way They say money makes the world go round, but does it. Money is a current medium of exchange in the form of coins and banknotes, in other words we use it to buy things. I have a problem with money, maybe because I don’t have much of it, but this same problem exists among billions of people around the world. The problem may be that someone has not gotten the proper education, maybe someone is born in a part of the world were resources are scarce, maybe there are too many people for too little things to work on, or maybe the problem is money itself. There are studies and ideas still today from top thinkers and revolutionaries like Thomas Paine whos ideas led the American Revolution and the Declaration of Independence who believed that the government was the solution to our problems, to Friedrich Hayek the Austrian economist and philosopher who believed that the government was actually the problem. These ideas have always come across our minds but we never think they are capable of happening. Its an idea that can give dignity to millions, an idea that can unite politicians and accomplished what we should have accomplished a long time ago and finally get rid of poverty. A basic income. A basic income for everyone means that it would be a right, just like the freedom of speech. It won’t be a favor, it will be given to everyone unconditionally, poor or wealthy, you would have......

Don't Get Me Started

...Don’t get me started………. this is about having a big family. Yes family Is wonderful but when you are being introduced to your 5th, 7th, 10th and even your 20th cousin. It kinda gets boring. I love my family even my very extended family but……. There is always that disappointed look when my dad’s uncle’s grandfather’s nephew look at me and says “don’t you remember me?” and I would lie through my teeth “yeah sure I remember you, you were that guy that visited me when I was younger but I have unfortunately forgotten your name.” he would be all pleased and state his name “My name is Rashid Abdul Mohammed Hungara Bungara. Now imagine this 20 more times. It quit frustrating as you can see. My family originated from the great land of India which in fact is the second most populated country in the world so I have an “extensive” family. Yes when I say family that unfortunately that means my sibling. Siblings. A living nightmare that walks and talks and unfortunately eats. Before I start telling you the horrors of what a sibling is, let me justify that I am a brother of 18 year old of a rather temperamental girl who has quiet a mischievous streak so my childhood wasn’t exactly comfortable but I still love my sister despite the abhorrent acts she has done. Despite that sibling rivalry only strengthens our bond we have for each other but that doesn’t mean I can’t complain of her mistakes. Trust me; she makes a lot of mistakes. I have only one sibling and that was enough to send me......

Short Essay How to Get an a

...prepared. Have an outline already set out long before you have to start writing. Your teachers will most likely have a format for you to follow, but if not, follow this basic one: an introduction paragraph, 3 or more supporting body paragraphs, and 1 concluding paragraph. Write out your ideas. Get out a piece of paper and write down everything that you can think of that pertains to the subject. Don't worry about neatness yet; this is still the brainstorming stage. Choose a few good ideas. Make sure you can back them up. Even though you might have a brilliant idea, if you can't back it up, it's useless. Group your ideas into different categories. For a simple example: If your subject is "Names of Animals", and you write Cat, Lizard, Dog, Alligator, Raccoon, then you could group the mammals in one group and the reptiles in the other, or you could put domesticated animals in one group and wild ones in the other. These will be your paragraphs. Turn your ideas into a sentence. To do this, try to pick out a few major words or themes from your ideas and use them while drafting your paper. Let your essay sit for a while, then read it again. You will need to have fresh eyes when reviewing your essay. If you are short on time, have someone else read it. Edit as needed. Follow your guidelines to a T and write every fact and follow your opinion. It will bring you closer to an A....

Five Key Ways to Get to Know Your Customer

...Five Ways to Know Your Customer Better than Your Competitor Does Professor Julie Hennessy What’s the challenge of Marketing Strategy? It’s not really, at its core, about advertising, though successful communications require a good marketing strategy. Likewise, Marketing Strategy isn’t just about how to price, what features to build into your product, or how to get it to the consumer, though these are important too. Marketing Strategy is about identifying a positioning, a clear plan for creating value for a specific and well-defined customer group. It’s about delineating a way that you will create more value for the customer you’ve chosen to serve than your competition does, because that’s how you win. Finally and importantly, it’s about creating that value for the customer in a way that creates superior value for the firm. Points of execution— communications pieces, revenue capture mechanisms, distribution partner’s incentive structures, product and service design specifications—are all both interesting and important to successful execution of a well-founded strategy. But the best execution in the world rarely helps a firm win a battle where it has no strategic advantage. If Marketing Strategy is about locating that intersection between what customers want and where an individual firm can create value better than competition, then superior understanding of customers is crucial. Having a better sense for what would create customer value than your competitor......

Don't Get Me Started on Coursework

...Draft Don’t get me started on motorcycles. Maybe you’re part of the extravagant, ‘rock and roll’; tattooed, leather wearing-Mohawk-dyed people who enjoy riding motorcycles. Everything about motorbikes makes my skin crawl; the smell, the engine when you speed up but especially, the danger. I suppose that’s why purchase them, for the risk and the adrenalin rush. Maybe. Although, I don’t understand why one earth people are drawn to these death traps. We all know how many accidents and fatalities occur yet still, people buy them. Picture this, you’re en route to work but you’re stuck behind a ton of traffic. Angry drivers are beeping, swearing and complaining but as you look over your shoulder, you can hear a ‘grrrr’ sound. Within a blink of any eye, a big, black motorbike turns by accelerating in front of you so now, you’re going to be the latest one to work. As much as people may argue that this is a good excuse to buy a motorbike, but oh no, on the other hand. You see their snide, hysterical faces swerve by and wonder what gives the audacity to get to the front before all of us. Noise pollution! You’re in Spain or Germany or somewhere else beautiful having a lovely lunch outside and the birds are singing while you’re reading a magazine and having a laugh then suddenly, the monster is getting nearer, going left and right as it approaches. It speeds past you and your lunch; interrupting the birds, making your magazine have a panic and blow out of your grasp, and everyone’s......

Active Ways to Get New Clients

...Active Ways to Get New Clients 1. Get the word out to family and friends in a meaningful way. I had a friend launching a business + blog who chose a method that I now love to use and help other people use: she wrote (actual) personalized + purposeful messages to each person. This may sound very “duh” to you, but make sure each time you reach out, you include: * a personal note that lets someone know this is not the same email/message 300 other people got; make a connection on a hobby, interest, desire, or need of theirs * a brief description of the type of work you are doing now and why it’s so important to you * the ways in which your friend/contact can help you (Do you want referrals if your friend knows someone in need of your services? Do you want people to share your message?) * a clear way for people to practically do what you’re asking/hinting (for example: if you’re asking for people to share your brand on Facebook, give them a brief description and picture “if they so choose to use it” . . . or if you’re asking for referrals from a good friend, give them an idea of what they could email out to others–and perhaps even give them a sweet freebie to distribute) * a sincere “thank you” for the person’s time in reading your message and in helping you any way they see fit Are you at a loss for where to pull personal connections from other than your phone’s contact book and Facebook friends list?

Essays in Different Ways

...Essays can be written many different ways, but the traditional five-paragraph essay has essential elements that transcend all essay writing. Proper planning and organization is required when writing an essay, particularly when developing a thesis statement, which sets the focus and tone of an essay. The introduction, body paragraph and conclusion are the other primary elements of an essay. It is customary to prepare an outline before writing to give your essay structure and effective flow. 1. Thesis * The thesis is the statement of an essay that determines the primary focus. A thesis statement should be one coherent, concise sentence that clearly states the point of your essay. If you are writing a persuasive essay, the thesis statement is where you make your primary argument. A strong thesis statement is essential for an effective and cohesive essay. Traditionally, your thesis statement should be the last sentence in your introductory paragraph, but more relaxed styles of essays may have the thesis elsewhere in the introduction. 2.Outline * One of the main steps in writing an essay is creating an outline of material to create the most effective structure. Traditionally, outlines use a system of Roman numerals, upper- and lower-case letters, and numbers to classify points. Create one heading for each paragraph, including your introduction and conclusion. For each supporting paragraph in the body of your essay, list the most essential points you want to......
