Objectivity In Your Essay

When students learn to mentally push themselves ah according to the writers that’s what I was looking for looking for that objectivity and you can see here they mix it up a little bit they put it inside the sentence so that works well it kind of breaks up that both men and in gutting many writers so they’re changing things around trying to keep things interesting for the reader and but they do pick up on mentally push themselves and that is going to be the division striving for the best and then sure enough they bring in the their thesis right there with the idea of continued development good going over a lot here this is a really important section probably something that most of you guys need to work on. Find out what sections of essay are the most important to revision at Edusson.

So I’m definitely going to pause here and what you want to do now is take a look at your thesis statement and considering what we’ve just reviewed I want you to work on revising it seen what can you take out how can you make it more specific specifically work on your topic sentences oftentimes what’s needed is to move from this where you’re stating your own position to this whether you’re using rapport discourse that distance yourself also remember to include those two things in your topic sentence a reference back to your thesis and a reference back to your division so I’m gonna pause it now it’s going to take a little while for you to work through this many students I’ve had students in class take out their thesis statements and their topic sentences because that’s all you should be looking for now you should be looking just at your thesis statement which probably last sentence in your introduction and in going to each of your topic sentences probably the first sentences in each of your paragraphs and just working on them you’re not looking at your entire paragraph you’re not looking at your entire essay right now you’re just kind of looking at the skeleton or the framing of the scaffolding of the essay to see how well the organization is holding up again.

Many students just copy out and paste into a different document so they can look at it separately and then move it back in once they’ve revised it so let me pause here give you guys a chance to work on that and you can come back in we’re going to start working on explaining things in more detail okay hope you spent some time on revising your thesis and topic senses and now you’re ready to move on to another part of revising your essay we’re going to start now with defining a topic sentence and then move from that probably to organizing paragraphs examples explaining quotes and in painting the picture and that’ll end us up for now so let’s start with defining topic sentence this is where you’re going to start supplying some information for the reader now you’re going to start helping out the writer the source material that you’ve used helped make it clearer for the reader.

Essay Writing – Drafts

We like to focus more on the sentence and word level of editing proofread our third drafts this is it so you see this sometimes when you’re creating a thesis you cannot always especially compare and contrast typist so you cannot always distill it into one sentence so I didn’t even try to do that so let’s see what we have so you have although Mars and I different terms of what we do when we print the first draft we are similar in our first draft and that we both outline or brainstorm before writing the paper in addition we’re also similar because we make we make dramatic changes in our second drafts and we like to focus more on the sentence and word level of editing as we proofread our third drafts you see we’re saying here so here if you notice your thesis isn’t very specific as to what’s going to happen and that ends up being in a nonspecific kind of approach in your body paragraphs. Get more advises on editing at robotdon.com.

But if you’re very specific in the thesis then it’s much easier to create or frame those topic sentences in the body of the essay so now what we have to do is we have to create an introduction now and we just need some some general ideas that can proceed kind of what we’re saying so what you can do think of it like an upside down triangle okay so now we have a fairly sharply focused type thesis which is essentially a compare and contrast type thesis to give the body of the essay a very clear coherent organization you can’t just include this as the intro you have to include maybe some general statements above that so let’s just I’ll just give you an idea of something that you can say here obviously don’t use exactly these same words in your paper but let me just give you an idea of how you can begin the paper which in general statements this is something like this you might see something like this and to accomplish this goal they will create some steps processes to help them finish these assignments then you might say to aid these students in their writings projects.

You’ll say Richard Marius and his article writing drafts students should follow in order to successfully complete these essays that’s probably it then you just combined it together here what are we done we got our we have some type of introduction here so let’s look at it one more time so students attending universities will complete many assignments in their biology chemistry anthropology and English classes and to accomplish this goal they will create some steps or processes to help them finish these assignments to aid these students in their writing projects Richard Marius in his article writing drafts outlines some steps that students should follow in order to successfully complete these essays. then you say although Mars and I differ in terms of what we do when we put the first draft we’re similar in our first draft and that we both outline or brainstorm before writing the paper in addition we’re also similar because we both make dramatic changes in our second drafts.

HOW TO CONDUCT A SUCCESSFUL JOB SEARCH

Introduction

Beginning a job search can frequently be considered a daunting experience, in the end where would you start and which resources in the event you use? This short article aims to look at at length the sun and rain of the effective job search, drawing upon my experience like a employer over several years.

Step One. Objective Setting

It’s impossible to determine whether something continues to be effective unless of course you define some fundamental objective first and foremost.

Consider a few of the following:

a) Have you been searching for the same job inside a different company?
b) Have you been searching for work become a particular industry?
c) Or still undecided by what job you would like, but plan to cast the internet as wide as you possibly can and find out what goes on?
After you have clarified your job search goals this can influence that which you be prepared to gain in the finish from the process.

Step Two.

Improve your Resume

Many people get steps 1 and a pair of within the wrong order within their haste to locate employment. They update their resume after which start considering what job they wish to look for. Remember your resume supplies a snapshot of the skills and capabilities but it is best to tailor it to the kind of job you’re using for. Don’t just submit exactly the same resume for multiple jobs. Remember to stress particular skills inside your resume that could appeal more with a companies than the others.

Dress to impress

Buy a great interview suit, even when you do not normally put on one. Searching wise and presentable to the prospective employer is important because it conveys respect and focus on detail. Having your interview attire ready before you decide to commence your actual job search will make sure that you will be ready to respond immediately if the employer insists upon attend an interview at short notice. The final factor you need to do is trying to purchase wise clothing at the time of the interview.

Tip: 

Choose dark colors, like blue, navy or black for interview clothing and try to stay with an ordinary whitened shirt or blouse. These colors are very neutral and wise and therefore are unlikely to become off putting to some prospective employer.

Ace Your Next Exam!

It’s 8 a.m. and as the teacher passes out the exams you can feel the anxiety rise up from your stomach like heartburn after bad pizza. Taking tests can be very unsettling, but test day stress can be lessened, or even eliminated, by utilizing some helpful test taking strategies. What you do before, during and after a test will determine how well you score and how relaxed you are going into it. There are countless test taking tips that are good guidelines for doing your best on any given exam.

You may think you know how to study for a test, but these simple tricks could help you improve your scores and ease your mind. Develop these test taking skills and strategies and you will be an expert on knowing how to ace a test in no time at all.

Tips for Test Taking

Before:

  1. Catch some zzzs!Get some sleep, people! Of course you will be groggy and unfocused running on 2 hours of sleep and a venti cappuccino, so avoid falling asleep and drooling on your test (embarrassing) and get a good night’s sleep the night before your test. Be sure to set your alarm with plenty of time to get up, eat and get out the door. Also, setting a backup alarm isn’t a bad idea!
  2. Eat!Don’t let a growling tummy distract you from focusing on your test. Making sure you eat a healthy, balanced meal is one test taking strategy that will yield noticeable results. Stay away from fatty, sugary foods and stick with healthy choices such as whole grains, fruits, vegetables and low-fat dairy products. Oatmeal with berries and skim milk is a perfect combination to power you through your test!
  3. Plan ahead!Don’t wait until the night before your test to begin studying. Once the class begins, start planning out when and where you’ll study so you’re not left cramming into the wee hours of the morning the night before a big test. Stress is probably the biggest complaint of test takers and it can easily be lessened by proper planning, time management and refusal to procrastinate.

“Marker” by Robin Cook

Book Title: Marker

Author: Robin Cook

This hypnotic fast-paced thriller can certainly rate itself as one of Robin Cook’s best. Once again, the shadowy underbelly of society confronts medical science to produce a suspenseful tale that will leave you gripped till the end.

Set in the heart of New York, Marker sets us on the hunt for a mysterious killer lurking in Manhattan’s General Hospital. Without warning or explanation, young healthy patients mysteriously die within hours of operation. The incidents catch the attention of medical examiner Laurie Montgomery who begins to pursue a seemingly cold trail. Woven into the dense fibers of this mystery are the loosening threads of Laurie’s personal relationship with fellow examiner Jack Stapleton.

The novel deals not only with the ethical debate over the role of commercialism exploiting the scientific advances in genetic screening but also explores the basis of modern relationships and the reluctance of individuals to take personal responsibility. Cook also takes a swipe at the conservative militants prevalent in American society by skillfully casting the central villain as a gun-toting discharged American soldier.

Written in a concise yet engaging tone, one cannot help but feel engulfed by the plot and its characters. The simple prose propels the story alone with incredible fluidity whilst the dramatic irony maintains a powerful tension. We are left constantly confounded with unresolved dilemmas and fears for the protagonist. The realistic settings also bring this novel an added dimension of credibility.

For those who have enjoyed watching shows like Grey’s Anatomy, CSI, House and ER, this novel is a must read.

Marker is published in Australia by Pan Macmillan Australia.

Why Marriage is a Lifehack

What I see around me everyday is a seemingly growing culture of ambivalence towards marriage and just commitment in general. Children are born out of wedlock, marriages end in record numbers, and the new priority is career before all else. Religion’s authority over society is weakening more and more everyday, especially with the horrendous acts perpetrated by certain members of the Catholic church. How can we take anything seriously anymore?

The truth is, the world and society at large has spent the last few decades making a mockery of what values have caused societies such as the United States and Europe to prosper. With seemingly no one to trust anymore, how can young adults trust a marriage partner? Isn’t having children selfish, since there are so many starving children? Isn’t it greedy and arrogant to ask someone to give themselves to you forever? Doesn’t it seem like a lot of work to stay with the same partner your entire life?

Yes, yes, yes!
But that’s the good thing!

The reason why I don’t feel bad about saying yes to these statements is because the alternatives ask me to not acknowledge my own life and needs. As I believe everyone is on this Earth for a purpose, what sense does it make not the fulfill that purpose? One of the most rewarding parts of life is realizing everything that happens to you, you intended. Good and bad. You can assume responsibility for an orphan child, but it is not your acts that put the child into the world, you did not intend it.

This “greediness” of marriage and acknowledgement of your own humanity is paralleled by other characteristics.

Giving your life to marriage is the ultimate gift you can give someone.

Fancy dinner our? Hah.
New BMW in the driveway? Pff.
My entire freaking life? Whoa there.

After years of reading relationship literature I realized that gifting someone in order to receive something back, be it a relationship, or a kiss, or whatever, is incredibly selfish and manipulative. I give credit to David Deangelo for first steering me in that path. The person you are gifting doesn’t even get the gratification of the gift, because underneath your smile, they know you really want something in return. How selfish!

Marriage is sacred, it is more than a “contract”. Marriage is a bond broken only by death. You can choose to either have a happy marriage or unhappy marriage. It is epic and can sometimes be scary. It is everything the postmodern world has been harping against, true, unclouded decision.

But then something strange happens. The clouds open so your worst days are not that bad. Green and yellow shades highlight your brightest days more so than ever. Sometimes it seems as if God thanks you for such a gift to another human. The gears around you seemed oiled, as if the world wants you to continue and give life to a new human. The universe just keeps on thanking you more and more as if you really did one-up it. Somewhere in my wildest dreams, I remember predicting all of this. A happy marriage, kids, life in a sunny valley, wildest dreams.

Can you forget that there may be someone else out there for you? (There is). Can you acknowledge your own mortality and take the wild ride in store for you?

Remember to Forget

Blogging about self-development has its own rewards – I get to keep my mind focused on great minds, successful people, ideas, and processes. Constantly updating my mental database and refreshing my thoughts is a great way to spend time.

After a brief vacation away from blogging, I came to realize again what I already knew. One must live his life to write about his life. While blogging (previously, journal writing to only myself) is a great fall-back-onto hobby of mine, something I always go back and do no matter what, I have taken some time to just relish life. Golf, cafés, mountain treks, friends, pubs, time with the wife, etc. Doing these things revitalizes my blogging desire because I forget about blogging (ambition) and live in the moment (peace/contentment).

Remember to Forget.

Remember to forget about doing what seems like the brightest path to walk down. Take a couple detours to really see the world you live in. Head back to reality from the golden fields and ivory towers we sometimes construct for ourselves to keep only the positive and the successful on our minds. Sometimes I believe we have to step out and establish these ivory towers in the middle of the worst things imaginable, the most horrible fears. We have to give the Midas Touch to the world and not just live in our towers with the gold and never spread it to the outside world.

When I first was introduced to the Law of Attraction, I thought that I had to be in the White House or on Wall Street to feel its benefits. Then, after a while and much skepticism for this “Law”, I realized that successful people and places can be found in the most unlikely places.

Remember to Forget everything you have learned for a while. Just for a little.

How to Focus on Goals

Imagine you wanted to walk to the other doorway. Imagine the path there is full of people talking to you, trying to sell you things, and generally trying to delay you or even prevent you from reaching your goal. Everyone thinks they have something good for you.

You stop and look at the scene and what do you do? What is waiting for you when you reach your goal? Are there better things waiting for you on the way? How do you even know in this information age where most of humanity’s knowledge can be accessed in a few seconds? What is the best choice?

The easy answer I like to give is, you never know.

From this standpoint, it seems relatively easy to just walk to the other door, doesn’t it? But in real life, where the paths are often hidden, it is much harder. You must stay focused on the goal and your legs will walk themselves while your mind keeps you focused. You socialize, live life, and do the tedious everyday chores like anyone else, but you are going in one direction, you have momentum. Imagine the other doorway you want to reach and keep it in your mind and make no excuses for wanting to go to there.

Choose where you want to go.

Start walking.
Live everyday moving a little closer to the goal (step by step)
As you approach, you gain more momentum, propelling your legs.
Once you reach the goal, then you can choose where to go next.

Many people seem to change their minds when they are halfway there.

That is saying to yourself that you do not trust your own mind, your own decisions. To finish one’s goals is to acknowledge your own decision making willpower – your life levels up. So stick with the path you choose, you will be happier at the end and fresh to start a new challenge.

Know Your Interviewer’s Style before You “Break the Ice.”

Job interviews typically start off with introductions and then some basic “small talk” to break the ice. Knowing how to handle the transition from “Hello” to “Tell me about yourself” depends, in part, on your interviewer’s “style.”

There are three basic types of interviewers: the Dominant, the Dependent and the Detached.

The Dominant interviewer is the easiest to talk to if you have done your homework. They are professionals who have been trained on how to interview. Most likely they will greet you with a handshake and offer their name. Their office and desk will be neat and professional. They will have a copy of your resume in front of them and prepared questions. If they have not already broken the ice, you could begin the conversation by commenting on the award on their wall or bookcase (it is common for these individuals to have them) or mention something else positive you have noticed about the interviewer or the company.

The Dependent interviewer is the poor guy who got tagged to do the interview and may be more nervous than you to be there. The Dependent interviewer often will not know your name (or in some cases why you are even there!). Their office or desk may be in shambles as they shuffle papers looking for your résumé. With this interviewer, you will want to take more control of the interview.

You may break the ice by saying how pleased you are to have an opportunity to talk with him about the company and the position (a subtle way to remind him why you are there and give him time to get his thoughts together.) Because the Dependent interviewer probably had very little, if any, preparation for the interview, they may not know what questions to ask so they may launch into casual conversation to “get to know you.” Be careful of this type of interviewer because you may find yourself chatting about things best not mentioned in an interview. If you do not take control of the interview and guide the questions and answers, you may leave there thinking what a friendly guy he was, but not knowing anything at all about the job.

The Detached interviewer is rare and most frequently experienced when interviewing for highly technical jobs. This individual is more apt to make his or her mind up after reading the résumé and sees the interview as an unnecessary formality. You will recognize this person when he comes into the room because he will not make much eye contact and will be quite regimented. There really is no way to break the ice or make small talk with this individual, because it goes against his grain. Just take a seat and politely wait for him to begin the interview.

I had a client once who told me that he had a Detached interviewer who only asked him one question – “Why do you want to work for this company?” After my client answered, the interviewer got up and walked out of the room. After waiting a few minutes, he looked out to the receptionist and asked “is he coming back?” and she replied that he went to a meeting!

And speaking of the receptionist – keep in mind that the interview starts as soon as you enter the lobby. Only make small talk with the receptionist if they appear to have the time and interest – and make sure the conversation is on brand!

Keeping Your Network Alive and Well

Establishing a solid network can actually be fun its all about creating a targeted community. Once youve established a strong network, its important to keep the contacts fresh. That can be a bit trickier!

A good rule of thumb is to touch base once every four to six weeks. Its helpful to keep track by setting reminders for yourself so you can get on a regular schedule. Six weeks can slip away quickly!

You may send a newsletter out at the same time each month or perhaps quarterly. Newsletters can be a good way to keep you on the tip of your customers brain but its not very personal.

So in addition to a newsletter, choose another time roughly each quarter to make a one to one contact with each person in your network. This does not need to be formalized, but its a good idea to keep track of who you have contacted with what. Theres nothing quite as embarrassing as sending the same article twice.

In your more personal contact, you may ask about a concern they had the last time you spoke, send along an article you feel theyd enjoy or helpful resource. You may even send a small gift but make it personal. You dont want to send candy to a diabetic or a beautiful cookbook titled 101 Ways to Cook a Chicken to a confirmed vegan.

Of course, one of the best contacts is sending them business. Do this often enough and they will always remember you.

Chat with people in your network and immediately after your meeting, write up a few notes. Do they admire a certain author? Do they see every movie made by a particular actor? Do they have a favorite food? All of these provide opportunities for touching base and avoiding missteps.

You might also read their newsletter and write them a note thanking them for their insights. Be specific in your praise and feel free to ask an intelligent question or two.

Finally, take your industry into consideration and know your audience. Of course its important to be professional, but is it best to be formal or more casual? Do they like (appropriate) humor? Do they like a longer newsletter or is it best to just get to the point? Regardless of the industry, its almost always best to obey the cardinal rule of avoiding religion and politics.
