  1. The Purpose of Higher Education Definition Argument Essay

    The availability of higher education that became easily accessible to nearly every person had a major influence to becoming valuable members of society. This led to individuals contributing more to their communities than ever before. These communities evolved into “thinking communities,” where inequality is slim and focuses to “tackle global dilemmas, have collaboration across different fields… willingness to serve the common good and humankind” (Bonini 6). As more people find their purpose through higher education, the more likely they are able to contribute to society.

  2. Solidarity Amidst Calamity - reporting floods in Silay.

    At the peak of the massive flooding, a lot of affected families utilized the availability of different social media platforms—such as Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram—to appeal for rescue and assistance. With the need for immediate assistance, a variety of individuals who may not be able to help straightaway have made use of their resources to reach out to more people by means of sharing verified and credible information, including rescue posts and emergency hotline numbers to increase their awareness. By merely reposting and retweeting, these minor ways were fused together and have been converted into a major contribution.

  3. Written task., I decided to write a magazine article about the availability and effects of online gambling on children.

    Online gambling comes in many forms. In particular games, for example, you can buy loot boxes/crates which gives you an item or character in that game. In, for instance, Fifa 19, you can buy these Fifa Packs with, so-called, Fifa Coins that can be purchased with real money. These Fifa Packs then give you the chance to win a high skilled player but you also risk to get a lower-skilled one. Many consider this not as a form of gambling but looking at the concept it is a form of gambling.

  4. Persusive writing - Criminals should not profit from their crimes.

    Corby has had two grabs at the money pie. In 2006, she was paid $280,000from Pan Macmillan publishing company for her autobiography My Story. To safeguard this money, the company paid finances into her Indonesian brother in law?s account. How farcical that this can transpire? Now on her release, the media frenzy is nothing short of a circus. Channel 7?s bid for an interview with her with the bait of reportedly $3million dollars shows the extent that some networks are prepared to go to.

  5. Creative writing - A Penny For The Guy

    His face was confined, suffocating as the air around him dissipated. The securing string tied around his neck was knotted an inch or so too tightly; he longed to claw his hands at it; to tear it; snap it. Unmoving, his arms remained slumped on the ground like deadweight. Far from being a possibility, movement was scarcely even a mental consideration now. I pay my two pounds, thank the stall holder, and find my way to a free space in the crowd. My hand reaches into my pocket to locate my phone, but I stop myself.

  6. ALL ABOUT THAT BASS, SOME TROUBLE Why recent body positive songs arent as empowering as you think

    People often seem to forget that insecurities aren?t just felt by larger individuals- Everyone has the potential to experience anxiety and low self esteem due to body image. Eating disorders stand testament to this. People of all sizes are affected, and lyrics such as these are potentially very triggering. Worse still is the attention the song has drawn in the media, and horrific parody covers that have emerged as a result. One particular cover published on YouTube blatantly fat-shames women, and features the beguiling lyrics of, ?It?s better if you?re bony, you won?t suffocate in fat,? and, ?Don?t be selfish and eat yourself to death?.

  7. This House believes society has become obsessed with eradicating risk

    You could therefore say that it is purely common sense to wear a seatbelt when travelling in a car. However, I would argue that there is a huge difference between taking the sensible action of wearing a seatbelt and condemning the roads as just being too dangerous and deciding to stop driving altogether. I feel that, in our society, we are too quick to see the downside and the negative aspects of risk and not sufficiently tuned in to the need to see risk as something that occurs naturally and simply needs to be understood and taken wisely into account.

  8. Euthanasia should not be legalised

    This has had its practical expression in the hospice movement, which has lead to the enabling of patients symptoms to be managed in a caring facility, or even at home. It is clear that in countries such as the Netherlands, where euthanasia is legalized, there is a very rudimentary hospice movement. Whereas in countries such as the UK, where euthanasia will remain illegal, they have established facilities, which specifically care for the terminally ill, a House of Lords committee recently ruled that there should be no change in the law to allow euthanasia.

  1. Do they use key words from the title or question?

  • Compare and contrast two candidates

    "In conclusion, despite Senator Collins' advantages, I still disagree wit her points of view on the war in Iraq, tax cuts to corporations and her lack of support for universal healthcare plan. The contrasts between the two candidates could not be clearer. Susan Collins has acted in the interest of the President and Republican Party, while Tom Allen consistently stood up to the Bush administration and has always fought for Mainers. He has a record to be proud, and it shows what kind of Senator he will be. Hopefully, if Tom Allen gets elected, he will live up to his words and promises by becoming a fighter for the low and middle class."

  • An essential element of a short story is its ending. Discuss this statement with reference to two short stories of your choice

    "So as you can see the ending was the total opposite to what you would expect. So at the end of the story, the Vallins were reunited and the Tuvaches were split up. The setting of the story fits in very well because it shows how poor the families were and why the money from selling the child was so important. I think the moral of this story is ' In some situations, there is never a right answer.' I think in both of the short stories I have written about the ending has dramatically changed the story for the better. The writer has done this by carrying the same theme all the way through the story, but has still managed to create the unpredictable ending needed to make any short story successful. Sean Morton 29th January 2004"

  • The Crucible: Discuss the changes in the relationship between John and Elizabeth Proctor in the course of the play?

    "To conclude, I feel that at the start of the play John realises that what he did to Elizabeth was wrong and he does not wish to go back to that, so already he wishes to protect her. However their relationship was still stale and cold between them both until Elizabeth found out that she was accused of witchcraft. And then she needed to trust John to speak to Abigail and John had a new found love for Elizabeth as he felt he needed to protect her. As the court scene developed they both learnt something new about each other and the ways in which they react to different situation, and I feel that it is the start of the coming together of their relationship. But it is only during Act 4 when Elizabeth is trying to persuade John to admit to seeing the devil that I feel their relationship is re-built. But I still feel that Elizabeth was not the same with John after the affair as at the end of the play and in echoes down the corridor she moves on too easily."
