    Scottish Independence-Discursive Essay

    Extracts from this document…


    Scottish Independence – Good or Bad Scotland is at a turning point. The 300-year old Union is some say no longer fit for purpose. Some say it was never designed for the 21st century world and it is well past it’s sell by date and is holding Scotland back. The Scottish people voted to move forward, with a new, more Scottish approach from an SNP government. But many oppose these views saying that Scotland needs the rest of the UK and that the economic and social problems caused by independence would be catastrophic to the relationships between Scotland and the rest of the UK. In any case the government has published a white paper setting out a vision of independence and responsibility in the modern world. But is this idea beneficial to our country? Is Scotland ready to go it alone? Is Scotland ready to break free from the shackles of the UK? Are the Scottish people ready for independence? In this essay I will explore our options and inevitably present the information needed to make your own conclusion on Scottish independence. There are strong arguments both for and against independence. The arguments for Scottish independence are described in the next few paragraphs. …read more.


    With independence, Scotland could join this arc of prosperity. Scotland could pursue economic policies designed specifically for our circumstances, to give us a stronger economy, better public services and a fairer society. Furthermore and probably the SNP’s biggest drive for independence is through their old motto "It’s Scotland Oil". This motto refers to the oil in the North Sea and it is said that although 90% of the North Sea Oil comes from the Scottish Sector of the continental shelf the revenue created by the selling of this oil would not benefit Scotland while it remained as part of the United Kingdom. The Continental Shelf Act 1964 and the Continental Shelf (Jurisdiction) Order 1968 defines the UK North Sea maritime area to the north of latitude 55 degrees north as being under the jurisdiction of Scots Law meaning that 90% of the UK’s oil resources were under Scottish jurisdiction,therefore proving the SNP are correct in the claim that the North Sea Oil is in fact Scotland’s Oil. On the other hand there is a substantial amount of claims and information produced by the Labour Party that clearly shows Scotland would not be able to go it alone. Labour firstly argues that the division of the UK would lead to colossal problems. …read more.


    Fourthly and finally for the against independence argument is that if Scotland was to gain independence form the UK, Northern Ireland and Wales may follow suit to gain the benefits that Scotland would becoming independent. This would lead the UK to become four divided nations with different Passports, possibly currency, rules, legislation and most importantly armies. The division of the UK would also take the power and prestige of the Queen’s position and discard it, as there would have to be different rulers for each country; this is hardly going to be accepted by the Monarchy supporters. In conclusion, there are strong cases both for and against Scotland gaining it’s independence from the rest of the United Kingdom, both sides have pros and cons but most importantly both sides of the argument have their supporters and at the end of the day that is what it will all come down to when a referendum inevitably is brought up. Scotland has its own parliament so why can’t they have full separation. The north seas oil in terms of longitude and latitude belongs to Scotland so it really needs independence to reap the benefits of the sought after fossil fuel. So with this information I have divulged to you make your own decision. Scottish independence. Yes Or No?

    Transferable General Education Credits

    Most students will have completed the majority of the pre-requisite requirements in their associate degree program. If not all pre-requisites are complete you may be admitted to begin the RN to BSN program immediately; however, successful completion of all pre-requisite courses is required to obtain the BSN degree. Completion of pre-requisites while enrolled in the RN to BSN program may prolong the time to degree. Not all pre-requisites are offered at the University of Cincinnati at all times in an online format. The pre-requisite courses can be completed at any regionally accredited institution and transferred to the University of Cincinnati to fulfill the requirement.

    If you are a student at Clark State Community College, the following courses can be taken to satisfy the required pre-requisite courses for the RN to BSN program:

    Lewis-Clark State College

    Lewis-Clark State CollegeLocated at the confluence of the Snake and Clearwater Rivers, on the Washington State-Idaho border, Lewis-Clark State College offers a unique educational experience to students. The campus is urban, in a metropolitan setting with a population of nearly 50,000, but the area has an abundance of wilderness. The school is a dichotomy, too; people describe it as a public institution that feels like a private school. Lewis-Clark was founded in 1893 as the Lewiston State Normal School. The undergraduate school has an approximate enrollment of 3,500. Nearly 70 percent of classes have fewer than 20 students and the student-to-faculty ratio is 15:1. The U.S. News and World Reports college ranking places it as #26 of Regional Colleges. The school awards more than 90 degrees.

    Lewis-Clark State College Accreditation Details

    The college is accredited by the North Central Association of the Higher Learning Commission of Colleges and Schools.

    Other programs with special accreditation are:  The Nursing program is accredited by ACEN; the Occupational Therapy program is accredited by ACOTE. Other programs are accredited by the ADA; NLNAC; the National Alliance of Concurrent Enrollment and the National Automotive Technicians Educational Foundation

    Lewis-Clark State College Application Requirements

    Freshmen applying for the first time should access the Common Application form online. It can be completed and submitted online or printed out as a PDF form. There is no application fee. Freshmen should have their high schools send their final official transcripts to the school. In addition, students should have testing agencies send the official scores for ACT, SAT or COMPASS testing. An alternative, for freshmen with a high academic record, is to send an academic portfolio in lieu of the test scores. Students transferring to the school from other colleges should ask the schools to send official transcripts of all coursework, including dual -credit, work, to Lewis-Clark State College. Military transfer students should have transcripts sent of all college courses they have taken.

    Tuition and Financial Aid

    Tuition for in-state students at the school is $6,000 per year. Room and board costs $6,570 and the school estimates books and fees at $1,632. Non-resident tuition is $17,000 per year, with the other costs the same as residents and so the total cost for residents is $$14,102. Non-resident total cost is $24,620 per year. Through an agreement, non-resident students from Asotin County pay tuition of $9,380. Part-time students pay $307 per credit hour whether they are residents or not.

    Although Lewis-Clark State College is one of the most affordable colleges in the area, paying for an education can still be difficult. The first step in obtaining financial aid is completing the FAFSA. The Free Application for Federal Student Aid gives students access to federal grants, loans and work-study opportunities. Applicants give the government information about their finances, and those of their immediate families. The program determines what a student can afford to contribute toward his education, and then subtracts that amount from the actual accost of attending a school. The result us the student’s financial need. Then the program awards them funding as grants, loans or as the chance to participate in work-study opportunities that are administered by the school.

    At Lewis-Clark there are also several scholarships offered through the institution. These are based on academic prowess, financial need or both. Funds are available to first-year freshmen, for certain majors, to minority groups and to non-traditional students. Students apply for all scholarships through a common application upon which there is a check list of available funding. Scholarships are awarded through private sources as well, for athletics and academic programs such as teaching. The school also has a “21” Endowment that is awarded to assist people who were awarded scholarships finish their educations after the scholarships elapse. Lewis-Clark has a tuition waiver for non-resident students as well. An online search will reveal other funding opportunities for students through corporations and associations. If students have exhausted their scholarship and grant options, they might consider taking out student loans. These are low-interest loans that allow deferred repayment until the student has graduated.

    Student Experience

    Students at Lewis-Clark State College are in the unique position of being in an urban environment with the social and economic benefits that entails, while also having the option to participate in varied outdoor recreation. The school has numerous clubs and organizations, and an active sports program. The Lewis-Clark mascot is the Warrior. Men’s sports include baseball, basketball, cross country, golf, tennis and track and field. There is no women’s baseball at Lewis-Clark, but there is a volleyball team. Students also volunteer in many community-assistance programs. The student-to-faculty ratio is 15:1 but, using the “full-time equivalency” calculations, the ratio is higher than many schools this size. Still, because classes are small, there is ample opportunity to get “face-time” with teachers.

    One of the degree options at the school is representative of national interest in the sports administration field. Students can earn either a Bachelor of Arts or a Bachelor of Science in Sports Administration. This degree program puts together the fields of business, health and kinesiology as they relate to sports and sports administration. The program has 120 credit hours. Students follow a required general education path called “Ways of Knowing,” and select courses to satisfy the liberal arts requisite. These include “Ways of Knowing” in Math, Humanities and the Arts, Sciences, Social and Behavioral Sciences, plus courses treat stress diversity. There are also required courses in oral and written communication and a requisite of 16 credit hours in a foreign language. The general education segment contains 38 credit hours. There are 13 credit hours in electives, 33 in kinesiology and 30 in business followed by a six-credit-hour final project. The curriculum stresses planning and development of athletic programs, marketing and recruitment, event planning and management and financial management in addition to other skills and knowledge bases. Students in both the BA and BS programs are required to take an “Integrative Seminar in Ethics and Values.” Because this major is jointly housed in the Business Department and the Education and Kinesiology and Education Department, students are required to have advisors from both disciplines.

    This school offers much that students find at larger institutions, while maintaining a small-school atmosphere. Lewis-Clark State College is recognized as one of the best colleges in the nation.

    The young child attributes things he can’t understand to magic; later with the aid of language and education he gains a concept of who he is, and he may begin to search for life’s meaning.

    When my niece, Nancy (names in this article were changed), was age two, she stayed with us while her parents moved. Her dad phoned, and I handed the phone to her so that she could hear his voice. Nancy looked surprised and held up the phone saying, “Daddy is in here.” At age two and a half our son, Ian, was playing in the backyard. We’d just set the clocks ahead for daylight savings time. At seven o’clock, his usual bedtime, I went to get him saying, “Ian, bedtime.” He responded, “You can’t kid me, the sun isn’t under the grass.” If you ask a young child to draw the inside of his body, he will draw a large cavity filled with blood; so when Jimmy saw blood running from his skinned knee he cried believing that his whole self was bleeding away. Dian’s son, Henry, age three, knew that his grandfather had died. Henry heard his parents explain to his older sister that Granddad’s soul went to heaven, and his body turned to dust. One night Henry refused to go to bed. Finally he told his mom that Granddad was hiding under his bed. When Dian checked she realized that she’d let dust balls accumulate.

    We adults are amused and confused by the concept of a man inside a phone, the sun going underground, that loss of blood or dust balls could be frightening, but those concepts were real to the children. We can’t call upon our own experiences to understand since we don’t remember much that happened before we had language, but we need to understand the meaning of the fear or what is behind a behaviour in order to develop techniques to deal with it. When we understand the conscious life of children at different stages in their development, we can better help them adapt to the real world, and parents will be less confused about what sort of discipline is appropriate to teach the child self-control. In many cases reassurance by the parents is enough to allay the children’s fears, but Henry’s fear may have had a deeper cause, the fear of losing his parents, which the parents must address. In her book The Magic Years, Fraiberg explains how children attribute things they can’t understand to magic and how language helps them humanize. She takes us through stages in the child’s mental development.

    The baby is motivated to satisfy his own needs. His first thought activity is to remember pictures: pictures of the breast or bottle or mommy, for example. As soon as he learns the name of the object he requires to satisfy his needs, he uses that word to call back the picture of the breast or bottle or mommy, and he can wait to be satiated by repeating the word when alone in his crib.

    Soon after the age of two the concept of “I” emerges. The conflict between what his body urges him to do to bring satisfaction and the physical and social restrictions of reality come into conflict. He learns that he can control the body wish by sublimating that wish for an imagined alternative. For example, I want a horse becomes a game where a stick is imagined to be a horse. Parents can employ the principle of substituting another activity (redirection) when the child is misbehaving.

    Tommy, age two and a half, wanted to take his baby brother’s bottle, and we heard him saying, “No, can’t have the bottle.” He was trying to curb his wish with words, but his wish was too strong and he took the bottle for himself. His parents showed their displeasure by temporarily withdrawing their approval and comfort. The child learns self-control when he sees that he has displeased his loving parents; he becomes angry with himself and feels guilt. If Tommy puts the bottle back into the baby’s crib, we see that he knows his action was wrong; no punishment is necessary. The effect of withdrawal of the parents’ approval was only temporary, but it was necessary to teach Tommy self-control. If on the other hand a parent uses physical punishment to correct Tommy, it may cause him to feel that he paid the price for his misdeed, thus depriving him of feeling guilty and learning to control his wishes.

    The three to four year old often takes pleasure in cruel acts. There is no use in saying, “How would you feel if someone did that to you?” The egocentric child can think only of himself, but again he senses the displeasure of his parents, and he will want to alter his action to get approval in future. Later the healthy child adapts the attitudes of the parents and loving caregivers. When he acts counter to their teaching he dislikes himself. At that stage he blames imagined friends or others, and he often distances himself from his parents. Beginning at age five or six he begins to imagine himself in the place of others.

    By age nine the child who has been nurtured effectively has established some ability to understand human empathy, to transcend love of self, to value human life and be revolted by acts and ideas that seek destruction. These qualities are not innate, Fraiberg writes, but are products of education. “In the case of moral development, the judgments, standards, values of the beloved person are taken over by the child, made part of his own personality.” By our words and deeds we caregivers help children find civilized solutions for meeting their needs and for solving issues of rivalry–the route to responsible adulthood and hopefully, a peaceful world. Let’s hear your stories.

    Election 2016: The International Issues

    Photo by Gstudio Group/Fotolia

    This essay is one piece of a two-part overview of the issues facing America’s next president. Read about the domestic challenges here .

    From Russia to North Korea to the slaughter in Syria, the next president will face foreign-policy challenges that test the very fundamentals of world order.

    In recent months, RAND researchers have outlined the decisions that must be made, the dangers involved, and the least-bad options that now often pass for good ones. They have assessed the fight against ISIS, developed a peace plan for Syria, and mapped a future for the world economy.

    Senior political scientist Michael J. Mazarr set the scene in a recent op-ed . “U.S. foreign policy over the coming decade,” he wrote, “is likely to focus on the task of managing relations among a collection of tough, ambitious great powers that are determined to shift at least some of the global balance of power away from the United States.”

    ISIS: The Long Fight

    The Islamic State has been driven from some of its most important cities and now finds itself under siege in others. But defeating it on the battlefield is only the first step in what will be a long fight to dismantle what it stands for.

    Western perceptions of the Islamic State as the command-and-control hub of an international terror corporation are misguided. Instead, it is a three-part threat , RAND experts wrote: the self-declared caliphate itself; its franchisees in places like Libya and Nigeria; and its ideology, open-sourced for anyone to claim.

    The coalition fighting ISIS on the ground has made great strides since senior international policy analyst Linda Robinson traveled through the region in the early months of the campaign. She found that the local forces on the front lines were, with some exceptions, fragmented, outgunned, and unprepared to reliably hold ground. Her recommendations, that the United States and its partners provide significantly more training and equipment to those local fighters, have since become strategy.

    ISIS’s opponents on Arabic-language Twitter outnumber its supporters, six to one.

    Success in the fight against ISIS will require further developing those local fighters into competent hold forces, she said, as well as establishing effective governance in Iraq and Syria.

    But as an ideology, ISIS is only the symptom of a disease, not the underlying cause, senior policy analyst Andrew Liepman and political scientist Colin P. Clarke wrote. The coalition still must address the social and political forces that gave rise to ISIS, such as vicious sectarian divisions in Iraq and the civil war in Syria.

    There is reason for optimism in an unlikely place. ISIS may be known for its deft use of social media, but a recent RAND analysis found that its opponents on Arabic-language Twitter outnumber its supporters, six to one . They could represent a potent force in the fight against the idea of ISIS.

    Syria: A Practical Peace Plan

    The United States can no longer afford to wait for a comprehensive political settlement to bring an end to the bloodletting in Syria. Its principal goal, at least for now, should be to establish and sustain an enduring ceasefire , even if that means postponing a decision on the homicidal regime of President Bashar al-Assad.

    That is the only practical way to end the fighting, a team of RAND experts led by former ambassador and special envoy to Afghanistan James Dobbins concluded.

    Their peace plan would freeze the conflict along existing battle lines , effectively dividing Syria into several semi-independent zones—one controlled by the regime, one or more by the Arab opposition, and another by the Kurds. At least some state authority would devolve to those groups, allowing them to govern the areas they now hold, with international oversight.

    For now, America’s main goal in Syria should be to establish and sustain an enduring ceasefire.

    A fourth zone, the vast and desolate east of Syria, would remain a free-fire zone. There all sides could turn their attention to the destruction of a common enemy, the Islamic State.

    A durable ceasefire would at least buy negotiators time to work out the future shape of a Syrian state—and the fate of the Assad regime—without the running clock of a daily body count. Anything else risks making “’the best’ (that is, Assad’s removal) the enemy of ‘the good’ (maintaining the ceasefire),” the RAND experts wrote—and ending up with the worst, a resumption of violence with no realistic plan to stop it.

    Refugees: Lessening the Risk of Radicalization

    As millions of displaced Syrians crowded into desert camps and urban slums, RAND researchers sought to better understand the forces that pushed former waves of refugees into the arms of radicals .

    Their study of more than half a dozen previous refugee crises, from Asia to Africa to the Middle East, identified several common threads that seem to lead toward greater risk of radicalization. They found, for example, that refugees kept in isolated camps, with little opportunity for work or education and little sense of security, have been especially vulnerable to infiltration by militant groups.

    Those findings provide a guide to the international community as it struggles to accommodate refugees now and in the future in a way that lessens the risk of radicalization. Host countries, in particular, should allow refugees some freedom of movement, provide adequate security, and establish opportunities for youth beyond primary school.

    Critical to those efforts, of course, is international support and funding that doesn’t wane as a refugee crisis drags into years.

    Some of that funding could support local businesses that employ both refugees and non-refugees, said senior political scientist Barbara Sude , the study’s lead author. That would improve the lives of people on both sides and strengthen the ties between their communities— all good defenses against the threat of radicalization.

    Russia: The Baltic Question

    Sixty hours. In repeated war games at RAND , sixty hours is all it took Russian forces to punch through NATO’s thin defenses in eastern Europe and reach the capitals of Estonia or Latvia.

    It may seem unlikely that Russian President Vladimir Putin would risk war with NATO, senior research analysts David A. Shlapak and Michael Johnson wrote. But, as their games showed, the potential consequences if he did are so dire that it “may be less than prudent to allow hope to substitute for strategy.”

    Both NATO and the United States have announced stepped-up troop rotations in eastern Europe, a good first step at reinforcing deterrence. But RAND’s research concluded that NATO would need a force of about seven brigades—including three heavy armored brigades— on the ground, properly supported and backed by air power, to fundamentally change the strategic equation for Moscow.

    If Putin risked war with NATO by invading the Baltics, the potential consequences would be dire.

    That would represent a small part of overall spending of NATO member countries, Shlapak and Johnson wrote. Without further strengthening its eastern flank, they added, NATO will remain outnumbered, outranged, and outgunned.

    At the same time, the United States should look for ways to engage Russia , Mazarr wrote. There are areas for mutual cooperation, he noted, such as counterterrorism and nonproliferation. Russia aspires to a respected position in the world order, he wrote—not “the role of hated troublemaker.”

    North Korea: The Wild Card

    An underground explosion in rural North Korea in early September rattled seismographs in South Korea and homes fifty miles away in China. It was North Korea’s most powerful nuclear test to date, the latest escalation in one of the world’s most dangerous guessing games.

    This year alone, the erratic regime of leader Kim Jong-Un has test-fired more than 30 ballistic missiles, sent a rocket into space in what was widely seen as another missile test, and detonated two nuclear bombs. Those tests show that the North is determined to advance its weapons programs and the threat they pose, even in the face of ever-tightening international sanctions, senior defense analyst Bruce W. Bennett wrote.

    North Korea’s nuclear tests call into question the long-standing U.S. approach of “strategic patience.”

    The tests also call into question the United States’ long-standing approach of “strategic patience” with North Korea, Bennett wrote. The U.S. sent two B-1 bombers over South Korea in a display of resolve after the September nuclear test, and has moved to deploy an advanced missile-defense system there.

    The quickening pace of provocations from the North this year suggests a weak leader feeling more and more internal pressure, Bennett wrote—and seeking to divert attention through displays of force. That raises another troubling question for the international community: What would happen if the North Korean regime collapses?

    That could plunge parts of the North into anarchy, leave its weapons of mass destruction exposed, and threaten civil war in a country with more than one million military and security personnel, Bennett said. At the same time, it would likely cut off food distribution, provoking a humanitarian disaster “even more serious than is normally the case in North Korea,” he said.

    Central America: Slowing the Exodus

    Nearly 40,000 unaccompanied children, fleeing poverty and violence in Central America, made the treacherous journey to America last year and were stopped at the border. Even more have been coming this year.

    The United States is working with the governments of El Salvador, Honduras, and Guatemala to slow the exodus by stimulating economic growth, promoting education, and targeting criminal networks. But more needs to be done on this side of the border , senior policy researcher Daniel M. Gerstein and associate sociologist Ernesto F. L. Amaral wrote.

    Given the numbers and the need, the most relevant question for policymakers may be how to best integrate those children allowed to stay into American society. U.S. officials should better monitor how children fare in their host families, in their schools, and in their communities, Gerstein and Amaral wrote.

    History has repeatedly shown the futility of building “impenetrable” border walls to keep people out.

    More broadly, America needs to streamline its immigration court system, with more judges to hear more cases in less time, Gerstein wrote in a separate paper. It also should invest in better technologies to secure the border and target suspect air and sea cargoes as well as individuals.

    A wall across the southern border— “a thin brittle line,” in Gerstein’s words—would only divert money and resources from those needed reforms. The evidence of history, he wrote, from the Great Wall of China to the French Maginot Line, has repeatedly shown the futility of building “impenetrable” barriers to keep people out.

    Trade: Adapt and Integrate

    International free-trade deals may have few friends in presidential politics, but they could strengthen economies at home and abroad as the world adapts to some 21st-century realities.

    America will remain the dominant player in the world economy for the foreseeable future. But it will have to accommodate rising world powers like China, as well as developing nations whose economies are growing while those of America’s closest allies slip.

    The United States stands to gain more from strengthening world economic institutions and rules —and engaging with those rising powers— than from pulling back, senior economist Howard J. Shatz wrote. Despite the rhetoric, trade and investment deals represent valuable tools in that effort—measured both in domestic dollars and cents and in the expansion of the world economy.

    The United States should strive to maintain and strengthen the global system of trade it helped create.

    Because of that, the United States should approve some version of a Pacific trade and investment agreement, Shatz concluded—and include an on-ramp for China to join. The U.S. also should sign a new trade and investment agreement with Europe to help restore growth there and benefit both economies.

    This is a decisive moment for the world economy. The United States should strive to maintain and strengthen the global system of trade it helped create—“spurring growth so lives are improved,” Shatz said, “and demonstrating to countries that a U.S.-led economic system is a desirable one in which to participate.”

      completed this course, spending 4 hours a week on it and found the course difficulty to be easy.
      Wonderful creative course based on expression. It is more a general information course to inspire you and opening you up to the freedom of creative expression. This is not art theory or how to draw kind of course but does show you how to explore art. Definitely worth doing.

      Good course. Amazing how much it covers. I noticed som negative comments from a minority of people who signed up for the course. They are forgetting one fact in my opinion.That is, this is an introductory class for begginers. One sentece the instructor mentioned in module 1: " you need to be Patient, Persistent and to PRACTICE.." I also noticed that are all start with capital P. So give em a break and be positive. This also starts with a "P"

      Three Examples of Genocide Essay

      772 Words
      4 Pages

      From the time humans existed, hatred seemed to be the dominant trait that possessed the souls of men. It was inevitable emotions could provoke people to engage in acts without thinking; but it was the acts that were premeditated which were classified as evil and brutal. A. M. Rosenthal, the author of No News From Auschwitz, described a single moment in history where these kinds of acts were invoked. This appalling endeavor is known as genocide which is the deliberate destruction of a national, racial or a religious group
      (Winston Dictionary). Genocide is universal rather than limited to one time and one group of people. The Catholics in Ireland were being threatened and eliminated by the
      Puritans. The typical Irish lifestyle

      During 1915 and 1916, one and a half million Armenians were killed. “The Armenian Genocide was masterminded by the Central Committee of the Young Turk Party” (Armenian
      Genocide). The extermination of the Armenians occurred in a systematic fashion. First the Armenians in the army were disarmed, placed into labor battalions and then killed. Then the Armenian political and intellectual leaders were rounded up on April 24, 1915, and killed. Finally, the remaining Armenians were called from their homes and told they would be relocated … and then marched off to concentration camps … in the desert … would starve and thirst to death in the burning sun (Armenian Genocide). To this present day, the
      Turkish Government denied these allegations. They claimed the Armenians were only removed from a “war-zone.” The leaders of the Young Turk Government were found guilty of carrying out the killing by a secret network (Armenian Genocide).
      The decision to eradicate the Armenians was not an impulsive decision, but “the result of extensive and profound deliberations” (Armenian Genocide). In the case with China, genocide resulted in the extermination of the newly born female infants. Since ancient times, the Chinese have regarded the males to be precious and more prestigious than the females. The birth of a boy signifies wealth, prosperity and luck (Chow). The Chinese Government recently passed a law which limited the

The Rwandan Genocide was the 1994 mass killing of hundreds of thousands of Rwanda’s Tutsis and Hutu political moderates by the Hutu dominated government under the Hutu Power ideals. Hutus believed the Tutsi were taking their jobs, and that they were foreigners who had worn out their welcome (Genocide-Rwanda). In comparison to Germany, the largest genocide in history,…

Genocide and war share many common causes such as desperation brought on by a declining economy. Experts on the Central African Republic believe that current events point to a possible repeat of the Rwandan genocide of 1994, in which over one million people were killed. Many think that U.N. involvement is necessary to stop the escalating violence in the Central…

In some cases empires are formed then a transition from one ruler to another over the same region is made.

Now imagine doing that while also putting a smile on tons of underprivileged children faces. oesn!t the experience seem worthwhile to you” #r would you rather be sitting in class ta$ing notes” I strongly support the idea that young %mericans should be re&uired to spend at least one year in public service to give bac$ to the community and enhance their own $nowledge.%t first glance’ public service may seem to be a tedious and wasted labor( however there is a bigger picture to mandatory public service which is to give bac$ to the community. )esiding in Montgomery *ounty Public Schools’ I am re&uired to complete seventy+five hours of community service in order to obtain my graduation diploma.

Service learning is beneficial to a young %merican!s future career and builds a strong foundation of responsibility.)e&uiring public service teaches young %mericans civic responsibility in order to strengthen communities and enrich the learning of responsibilities for their future. Public service does not only benefit those whom receive the help’ but also the person or people whom perform the sincere act.

Public service also helps create connections between peers to advocate better social interaction and enhances vital s$ills such as leadership for young %mericans. )ather than sitting at home doing homewor$ and watching television’ young %mericans are given the chance to get out of the house and help out a good cause while having a great time. %lso’ students can practice volunteerism with friends. Therefore’ instead of spending time with friends playing video games’students socially interact with one another while volunteering.

      IELTS General Writing Task 2 — Practice Draft

      Many newspapers and magazines feature stories about the private lives of famous people. We know what they eat, where they buy their clothes and who they love. We also often see pictures of them in private situations. Is it appropriate for a magazine or newspaper to give this kind of private information about people?

      A One-Sided Opinion Essay
      with a Funnel Approach Introduction

      Never before has society been so obsessed with famous people as these days. In the past, celebrities were able to separate their private lives from their public personas with some degree of success. Yet today, seemingly due to the omnipresence of the mass media joined to the ubiquity of the Internet, celebrities reach a whole new level of popularity. Such prestige, however, does not come without a price.

      News about famous people’s private lives hit the headlines almost every day. From exotic diets to gossip about love affairs, celebrities have their lives scrutinized by the mass media all the time. Not rarely, famous people struggle to put up with paparazzi, being harassed even in gloomy situations such as a funeral of a beloved one, for example.

      Ironically, what seems to fuel such obsession is precisely the thermometer of the fame; popularity. In other words, the greater the fame is the more news about their private lives will be sought after. It seems fundamental to point this out because, given the very nature of the market, to boost profit, it seems natural that the mass media, playing the market role, provides this sort of product. After all, where there is demand there will be supply, it is said.

      Hence, that the reason why the mass media features such stories stems from the natural dynamic of capitalism appears to be clear. Yet, to me, the intriguing challenge is to figure out why do people are so keen on this kind of news in the first place? Perhaps we should consider fostering an honest reflection on whether such cult of celebrity is still suitable for the society we aspire to.

      Famous College Essay

      Famous University Essay, Famous Admissions Essay, Famous NYU Essay

      NYU received what would become the most famous college essay many years ago.

      We’ve never written about this essay on our college admissions blog before. But we figured…why not? If one were to ask us what is the most famous college essay ever written, we know the answer hands down. It’s this NYU applicant’s essay from many, many years ago. To this day, it remains well known in the highly selective college admissions community. But, today, we’d like to discuss it. Look, it’s extremely well written. Rarely — and we mean rarely — have we seen students with this kind of writing ability. Did we say rarely yet? Because we do mean rarely. And it’s quite funny. The guy can make 30-minute brownies in 20 minutes.

      And while it was a great essay at the time and the writer definitely has a sense of humor, we strongly discourage students from writing essays in this style. For one, every single admissions officer — from the ones who are first out of college to the veterans of the departments — will know from where you’re taking inspiration. Also, this essay is kind of mocking the entire college admissions process. The writer is essentially saying that he has done all of these amazing things in life and he hasn’t even yet gone to college. Sure, it’s written tongue in cheek but, at the end of the day, the essay says little about the actual applicant. Because, presumably, little or none of it is true. That’s the whole point.

      Look, this was a great essay all of those years ago. There’s a reason it’s a famous essay. What we’re saying is don’t even think about taking inspiration from it or writing anything stylistically similar because that is not a good idea for you. Here’s the essay:

      “I am a dynamic figure, often seen scaling walls and crushing ice. I have been known to remodel train stations on my lunch breaks, making them more efficient in the area of heat retention. I translate ethnic slurs for Cuban refugees, I write award-winning operas, I manage time efficiently.

      Occasionally, I tread water for three days in a row. I woo women with my sensuous and godlike trombone playing. I can pilot bicycles up severe inclines with unflagging speed, and I cook 30-minute brownies in 20 minutes.

      I am an expert in stucco, a veteran in love, and an outlaw in Peru.

      Using only a hoe and a large glass of water, I once single-handedly defended a small village in the Amazon basin from a horde of ferocious army ants. I play bluegrass cello. I was scouted by the Mets. I am the subject of numerous documentaries. When I’m bored, I build large suspension bridges in my yard. I enjoy urban hang gliding. On Wednesdays, after school, I repair electrical appliances free of charge.

      I am an abstract artist, a concrete analyst, and a ruthless bookie. Critics worldwide swoon over my original line of corduroy evening wear. I don’t perspire.

      I am a private citizen, yet I receive fan mail. I have been caller number nine and have won the weekend passes. Last summer I toured New Jersey with a traveling centrifugal force demonstration. I bat .400. My deft floral arrangements have earned me fame in international botany circles. Children trust me.

      I can hurl tennis rackets at small moving objects with deadly accuracy. I once read Paradise lost, Moby Dick, and David Copperfield in one day and still had time to refurbish an entire dining room that evening. I know the exact location of every food item in the supermarket. I have performed several covert operations for the CIA. I sleep once a week; when I do sleep, I sleep in a chair. While on vacation in Canada, I successfully negotiated with a group of terrorists who had seized a small bakery. The laws of physics do not apply to me.

      I balance, I weave, I dodge, I frolic, and my bills are all paid. On weekends, to let off steam, I participate in full-contact origami. Years ago I discovered the meaning of life, but forgot to write it down. I have made extraordinary four course meals using only a mouli and a toaster oven.

      I breed prize-winning clams. I have won bullfights in San Juan, cliff-diving competitions in Sri Lanka, and spelling bees at the Kremlin. I have played Hamlet, I have performed open-heart surgery, and I have spoken with Elvis.

      But, I have not yet gone to college.”

          Yes, he applied to NYU for Creative Writing, they’d have to be mental not to accept this work of art

            NYU doesn’t have a Creative Writing major.

              January 2, 2018 at 4:31 pm

              That is not relevant to this student’s essay. Who said he applied (decades ago) as a creative writing major?


      • K says:

        This is bold and hilarious. Good for him for taking a risk! (and it paying off)


      • Sophia Kolak says:
        November 5, 2016 at 7:19 pm

        The essay actually does say a lot about him. It shows he is witty, cynical, funny, and creative. It also shows that he is brave, because he is not afraid to break the conventions of a typical college essay. The rest of his application would have said what clubs he was in, his grades, and the rest of the things most people talk about in their essays. I agree that it would likely be obvious if a student were to emulate this style exactly, but claiming the essay “says little about the applicant” is rather naive.


      • Kerryb says:
        December 15, 2016 at 2:51 am

        This is a funny read, very clever and just entertaining! If you asked a college coach or anyone else if you should submit this essay, they would say no!!! Maybe he had an equally amazing gpa and perfect sat scores etc….and he had room to take a risk!


      • KenC says:
        May 17, 2018 at 12:07 am

        The kind of essay, you would submit only as a lark to your dream school.
