  1. A recent sales study indicates that consumption of seafood dishes in Bay City restaurants has increased by 30 percent during the past five years. Yet there are no currently operating city restaurants whose specialty is seafood. Moreover, the majority of families in Bay City are two-income families, and a nationwide study has shown that such families eat significantly fewer home-cooked meals than they did a decade ago but at the same time express more concern about healthful eating. Therefore, the new Captain Seafood restaurant that specializes in seafood should be quite popular and profitable. Write a response in which you discuss what specific evidence is needed to evaluate the argument and explain how the evidence would weaken or strengthen the argument. Words Limit 450-600 words Introduction: The following argument is flawed for numerous reasons. Primarliy, the argument is based on a sales study, that the consumption of sea food in bay city has increased rendering the main Point, which is the authenticity of this sales study, and they have not Provided any evidence to support the authenticity of the sales study. Body: Fallacy 1: The argument fails to provide any evidence about the authenticity of the sales study. For one, they haven’t provided any criteria on how they had choosed residents, they might be talking to minority of people who like sea food. This lack of evidence could question the legitimacy of this case study. Moreover, the reason for there is no sea food restaurants are in Bay city area is because majority of the people in Bay city might don’t like sea food. Strengthening the argument: Had the argument provided any information regarding the criteria how they have choosed residents, Even then, the argument would have to further prove that, the majority of people in Bay city like Sea food. Fallacy 2: Moreover, the majority of families in Bay City are two-income families, and a nationwide study has shown that such families eat significantly fewer home-cooked meals than they did a decade ago but at the same time express more concern about healthful eating. This argument also leaves many unanswered questions. Even if the Two income families nationwide significantly eat at fewer house meals, doesn’t necessarily mean that the bay city will also not like Home meals. Nonetheless, they are also assuming that the two income families will also likely to eat seafood, when they will go to restaurants. Fallacy 3: Therefore, the new Captain Seafood restaurant that specializes in seafood should be quite popular and profitable. Finally, the argument claims without warrant that what held 5 years ago will hold true today for Captain Food restaurant. Even if we assume that Two income families would likely to eat outside, the argument is still lacking because it does not provide information to show that the general economic climate will not change. Due to rising inflation they might would not be able to afford Seafood Conclusion: Because the argument makes several unwarranted assumptions, it fails to make a convincing case that People of bay city would likely to buy Seafood from Captain restaurant.
  2. Prompt: Society should identify those children who have special talents and provide training for them at an early age to develop their talents. Write a response in which you discuss the extent to which you agree or disagree with the recommendation and explain your reasoning for the position you take. In developing and supporting your position, describe specific circumstances in which adopting the recommendation would or would not be advantageous and explain how these examples shape your position. Essay: Introduction Providing health, safety, education, and opportunity to show your full potential to everyone in society is the Government's job. It is also the Government's responsibility to identify special children so that later on, they will use these talents to help our society to get ahead of our rival countries. Body Paragraph In the rapidly changing and competitive world, we must have the best people for the relevant job. We can go ahead if we find people with unique talents, nurture them according to their talents, and hire them for jobs that best suit their talent so they can later help society by keeping their country ahead of their rival countries. America is doing it very well. They have their dogs worldwide to sniff those talents and get them to live in their country. For this purpose, they have created Harvard, Stanford, and MIT, in which more than 70% of people are non-Americans. Similarly, After the war of independence of 1857, Sir Syed Ahmed Khan realized that the Muslims needed Leaders with special talents, so they built Aligarh university, which later gave Muslims Quaid-e-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah and Allama Muhammad Iqbal. Counterexample There is a concern also that it would have an economic burden on Government's Financial budget, and it could be used for infrastructure or the health of ordinary kids. Well, in the beginning stages, You can say for a little while, but studies have proved that 90% of kids who have been trained give 100 times more than you have invested. Conclusion Instead of letting other countries snatch them and use them against us, we must identify them and help them nurture them so they can do something for the betterment of their country.
  3. Topics: To understand the most important characteristics of a society, one must study its major cities. A society can consist of many large and small cities as well as rural areas. Each area has its own distinct character. As characteristics of areas differ widely, one can miss the most important characteristics of a society by just studying major cities. The major cities play different role in a society. A city can be the capital of the country, a city can be the capital of the state or a city can have a port that serves as a business hub. Among the vast different characters of these cities, it is very difficult to find out the most important ones which is also common. Even if someone completes this difficult task, he missed out the rural areas completely which varies widely from cities. It is possible that all the citizens of the major cities have a very busy and dynamic life, while rural people lead a very simple life. In this case, dynamic life style is one of the most important characteristics of the major cities but not for the rural areas, thus not the most important characteristic of the society. There can be other difficulties in this study. There can always be a lot people staying in a major city and they aren't permanent resident of the city. Their behavior can differ from the permanent residents or even from themself when they are staying in their own city. For example, people go to Las Vegas for gambling or having fun. Although they spend a lot of money without any care in Las Vegas, this is not their normal character. Similarly, people can behave differently from their normal state in capital or historic cities or cities that are famous amongst tourist. However, there can be a lot of similarity between cities and rural areas. For example, the citizens of major cities start their day with a cup of tea or coffe while reading a newspaper and the people of rural areas also start their day with a similar fashion. But this need to be confirmed by studying both areas. The citizens of major cities may eat a lot of junk food. On the other hand, rural people may strictly follow a healthy diet. There is no way to tell this without studying both sides. People can behave differently in city and rural area. There can also be a character that is common to all major cities, but not in rural area. Nonetheless, there can be character which is common both to rural areas and major cities. So, to understand the most important characteristics of a society, one must study both major cities and rural areas.
  4. TOPIC: Understanding the past is of little use to those in current positions of leadership. Write a response in which you discuss the extent to which you agree or disagree with the statement and explain your reasoning for the position you take. In developing and supporting your position, you should consider ways in which the statement might or might not hold true and explain how these considerations shape your position. ESSAY: A successful leader is the one who can motivate and unitedly lead his/her team to success. A path full of failures and successes leads a person to zenith. Before being called a leader, the person must have faced hardships. Learning from ones own mistakes is crucial to avoid them from happening again. Just like in case of a corporate manager or team leader ; understanding and analysing the past is important to lead the team to their heyday. Maybe during his/her own duration of being under someone else's leadership, the person came across unexpected results, or faced conflicts with the team members. Remembering how the issues were solved during that time and understanding that the same could aid during the struggles of someone relying on your leadership could greatly help managing the things at hand. Moreover, it is said that it is fine to make imstakes but not to commit same mistake repeatedly. This can be made possible only if we learn from our past and decode the scenario well enough not to make the same mistake again. If a person in currect position of leadership will have a reign full of fallacies, then how is a team, that is supposed to be inspired from that person, work righteously? I agree that with times, scenarios and problem statements drastically change. This could lead to rendering the past learnings of no help. For example, with expanding semicondustor industry, the technology nodes at which engineers are working have been changing rapidly. A person in current position of leadership might have faced 180nm technology node and related technical issues during his regime of learning as a junior employee; whereas a person working under his leadership now might face issues on 7nm technology nodes. This might make it difficult for the manager/ team leader to resolve issues swiftly inspite of being cautious in implementing learnings from the past. But, at the same time, the understanding that such issues continue as hurdles and recalling how human resources must be inspired to implement their academics to practical scenarios, a team lead can comfortably cross any obstacle. Since the beginning of his/her regime a person crosses many hurdles. Learning from past experiences can greatly help a person lead a wise and properly managed life - be it at work or at home.
  5. This is my first attempt to write an essay on issue topic. I did it under 28 minutes but since it is my first time i know i have a done a lot of mistakes. I tried to submit my essay to essay rater and it did give me very nice result. gmatawa.com gave me 6/6 and mbacrystalball.com 5.3 but i clearly know my essay is too short for a good score and it should also have a lot of flaws so i want a human eye to point that out for me. Thanks in advance. :) My essay question: Schools should be responsible only for teaching academic skills and not for teaching ethical and social values. Answer: The presented issue is a contentious one. I believe that schools should indeed teach ethical and social values alongside academic skills because we live in a society and it is necessary for student to be aware of the fact beside academic skills we should have social skills and we do have social responsiblities. Furthermore, only excelling in academic and oblivious to ethical and moral values may lead to misuse of the knowledge. Firstly, since prehistoric era we human have been living in a society. Each individual contribute to society and benefit from it. An individual who have good social values would certainly be able to fit in and prosper from the society. He will be well known to his responsibilities and can contribute to the society using his academic knowledge which would in long term benefit himself. secondly, we have seen a number of times the atrocities resulting from unethical actions and misuse of great knowledge. For example, the chemical attack on World War 2 and also the well known atomic bombings on Hiroshima and Nagasaki. These horrifying incidents could have been prevented if the people invloved had a good ethical scruples. It is true that schools are actually responsible for teaching academic skills and focusing on ethical and social values will definitely divide the time slots may some time result in paucity of academic skills provided to a student. However, this trade off is fair considering the negative consequences that would result in the absence of it. In conclusion, I personally believe that schools should be teaching academic, social and ethical values because a student with social, ethical, academic values will be a a great asset to the society have a higher probability of succeeding in life than the ones who simply have a great deal of academic skills but lacks the efficient way of delivering it to the society and use it for his greater well-being and prosperity.
  6. Claim: In any field—business, politics, education, government—those in power should step down after five years. Reason: The surest path to success for any enterprise is revitalisation through new leadership. Question: Write a response in which you discuss the extent to which you agree or disagree with the claim and the reason on which that claim is based. My Response: I totally agree with the claim that in any field- leader in power should step down after five years. And also feel the reason behind it is flawless. Definitely revitalisation is the best path for success in any field which only comes through new leaderships. For suppose if we have consider business field, The trends and requirements of the society changes with time, In 90's desktops were trend then comes laptops and now its smartphones. So to withstand with these change in trends, business organisations definitely need change in leaders. That is why big companies change their leaders periodically. They choose the new leader who can challenge the competitors with upcoming trends.So with change in leader there comes noticeable difference in companies standard. To state another reason, think about GRE preparation, People often suggest us to book the slot before starting preparation that is because, People generally take things seriously only when they are under time restrictions or stress. Similarly a political leader does his work with mush seriousness only when he kept under time restrictions. He will start his work from the day one hoping he could achieve all his aims and dreams within the allotted tenure. One other advantage of changing leadership is, If the leader in an evasive minded, we can preclude his corruptible decisions or rules at least after five years. So that people choose good leader for the next tenure. So it is a good rule that in any field- leader in power should step down after five years, so that the organisation will be in success path.
  7. TOPIC: As people rely more and more on technology to solve problems, the ability of humans to think for themselves will surely deteriorate. The hi-tech revolution is taking path day after day and now this new world that surrounds us become quite terrific. Humans are digitalizing their lives and slowly becoming robots. So relying on technology to solve life problems, expand your knowledge or get in touch with people will deteriorate our ability to think for ourselves. The Millennial generation is losing is ability to unravel difficult situations without the aid of a smartphone: for instance, when losing our path during a sightseeing tour around the city we usually decide to use Google Maps to find back our way while we could easily ask for information. Putting our brain in the hands of an electronic device prevents us from having a conversation with local people or even stimulates our orienteering sense. Moreover, the web is an outstanding resource in order to search for all kinds of information we need. However, according to the Brain Health Statistics Report 2016, it has been studied that reading on books fuel our minds much more than looking at a desktop: one young in three prefer the latter option and it has been forecasted that, once aged, he will have terrible sight problems, too. Finally, living face to face with a machine will decrease our capacity to interconnect and communicate with other people. Kids are so absorbed by their smartphones that they can’t even notice what it is happening around them, forgetting about their friends and family. On the other side, it is necessary to highlight that taking the fair advantage from technology depends on our behaviour: exploiting tech accessories with wisdom could certainly ameliorate our lives but we should be careful not making their usage an addiction. In this sense, it is crucial to educate the new generations on the dangers coming from this new sector, making them develop critical sense with respect to it. In conclusion, following the traditional ways of disentangling hitches and complications of our everyday life will definitely boost our problem solving and communication skills. Our brains are like engines, if we don’t oil them they will rust.
  8. Question: As people rely more and more on technology to solve problems, the ability of humans to think for themselves will surely deteriorate. Through times, technology has been developed very impressively; if you remind 100 years ago, there was no television and, of course, no smart phone. People live in the high-tech world now. People can see the person whom they want to see and meet via smart phone, they can find various information which they are curious about through Internet, and even more they can go anywhere in a day with airplane. All these things can be happened due to the development of technology. Therefore, the genuine ability of humans will not diminish or deteriorate, even though we live in the world with full of high technology. First of all, any high-tech devices does not have any ability to think. Those devices only can do what is asked to do by users, who is using them. For example, smart phone has the function to alarm the time, but it needs the person who sets the alarm; without setting the alarm, it cannot operate its function by itself. People is the one who think they need to wake up early, and chose to set the alarm for tomorrow morning. In other words, people still are required to think and make decisions for themselves, and technology only supports people in some ways. Next, with well-developed technology, people can utilize their ability to think themselves. People can make records for themselves, and remember more than before. For 100 years ago, if a person wanted to remember a specific day, he or she was hard to remind it because it was difficult to keep recording; they might write a journal every day, and that was all. However, now a days, people can take pictures whenever they want, and even more they can record a video. Also, people can upload those photos on the website, and can see whenever and wherever they want to. With these recording about themselves, people can have more memory about themselves, and have more opportunity to think of themselves. Some people worry about the development of technology, because it will be harmful for the ability of humans to think themselves. However, I think that technology not only supports human beings but also utilizes the abilities of humans.
  9. "Technology, while apparently aimed to simplify our lives, only makes our lives more complicated." Write a response in which you discuss the extent to which you agree or disagree with the statement and explain your reasoning for the position you take. In developing and supporting your position, you should consider ways in which the statement might or might not hold true and explain how these considerations shape your position. My response: Technology is one of the best things that could ever happened to human civilization. Since the dawn of civilization to this very day, we are grateful to technology in so many ways that we may run out of scratch papers if we ever had to list. It has made our life simple, fast and reliable. In every aspect of our life, we can feel technology with all of our senses. So, technology was meant to make life simple, and it has done that quite successfully. First, we were not civilized, not no way near we are today, when our human race first arrived or evolved in the planet earth. For example, during the stone ages, human were used to live a life that was mainly based on hunting. As a result, they had to starve if they failed to hunt. Then they learnt the art of hunting by inventing effective techniques of hunting, developing their hunting equipment. That was one kind of technological achievement. Again, learning how to fire, was another breakthrough for ancient people. They learnt how to cultivate their lands, farm animals and so on. All of those were possible only by the technological achievement of that time. And those achievements made life immensely simpler that before. In that sense, technology only made our life complicated, the claim in the prompt, is invalid. Second, our human race's journey from ancient stone as to this modern age, was rife with problems. There was food problem, accommodation problem, devastating natural calamities, endemic sicknesses, and many more. The only reason they were able to overcome this, was technology. However, technology was a blessing upon them. For example, extinction of many deadly diseases weren't possible if it wasn't for technological advancement. Again, food shortage was another problem for our human race, that technology diminishes. Moreover, high-rise buildings, modern transportation and many more led the way to accommodation and transportation into a new era, only through the advent of new technologies. Therefore, trying to say explicitly that technology only makes lives more complicated is really not justified at all. If simplification means starving without food, or passing life inside cave fighting with nature, than may be, its true, which is not the case. Third, the advent of modern technology, has given us so many ways to think about, so many new ways to help human conquer the evil upon us, previously thought impossible. For example, invention and development of computers, was one of the most significant invention of the late 19th century. We can't think of our life without computers, not even a single moment these days. So, this argument over, complications of our life, is really relative. Sometimes, many people gets overwhelms to keep in pace with this modern, ever fast technology. That might have pushed the feelings of complicated life, easy and calm life with no more problems. But, actually that simple life, is a myth if there were not technological developments. With the help of this awesome, mind blowing technologies we have around us now, scientists have found exo-planets similar to earth, which is one of the biggest achievement of technology and science. That means, human race has started to explore more than ever. So, complicated life is not a means to measure the technological achievements, by no means at all. Please comment on my response on how can I improve my writing. Thanks in advance. :)
  10. Requesting to please grade my essay from 1- 6 and provide effective suggestions. Thanks all in advance. TOPIC: “A nation should require all of its students to study the same national curriculum until they enter college.” ----------------------------RESPONSE------------------------------------------------ A building which under construction requires a strong foundation to sustain itself. Similarly, the pre-college education institutions have the responsibility of brightening the student’s future and also building a strong foundation for them. The curriculum on which the foundation is to be built varies from f nation to nation, state to state and also within the state as per different educational boards. Having the same curriculum for all students until they enter college will affect the students to a great extent. Each and every region of a nation has a different history(how it is built, the political powers influencing the growth of the region, etc) In India, the Students of one state study about the Mughal emperors, while of the other, study about the great warrior Shivaji or the great politician Chanakya of the historical times. This helps the student in knowing the history of the region in which he/she lives and he will be able to relate to it well. If all the states are bound to study about Mughal emperors, which was prevalent in Northern and Western India, he southern India students, would find it irrelevant and not suiting their culture/regions where they live. The climate conditions, flora and fauna, the nation heritages of each state differ. If this is standardized, it might have below two effects on the student. 1. If the curriculum specifies the geography of only one of the states, then the students outside that state would find it irrelevant to study it. This will affect their grades as they would find it difficult to study due to lack of interest. As it is rightly said, one should avoid rote- learning, rather understanding the subject and studying it will help in achieving better grades. 2. If the curriculum specifies overall climatic conditions of the entire nation, without going in the details, the students will not have in-depth knowledge about a particular region. This makes them master of all, Jack of none. A student of Canada must be well- versed about the extreme winter conditions over there. If he/she doesn’t have in-depth knowledge about the Do's and Don’ts in such conditions, it will affect him to a great extent. The same national curriculum can be advantageous for the institutes since it will generalize the grading systems across the nation. Also the admission process will be streamlined and the students will have similar point of view and opinions in dealing with different situations in college. For students, it would become easy to share their ideas, notes or other study material via the social media which is growing at an accelerated pace. Also when a student has to study in a different state, it would be a piece of cake for him/her to cope up as the curriculum is the same. The concept of same national curriculum is bound to limit the scope of thinking for the students. It will not help in generation new ideas, research etc as compared to the diversified approach. The generalization of the curriculum though advantageous in few ways, will not help in diversity. The diversification is necessary, as variety is the spice of life.
  11. Prompt: Nations should pass laws to preserve any remaining wilderness areas in their natural state, even if these areas could be developed for economic gain.Write a response in which you discuss your views on the policy and explain your reasoning for the position you take. In developing and supporting your position, you should consider the possible consequences of implementing the policy and explain how these consequences shape your position. Economic development relies on the natural resources found in the wilderness. While development of the wilderness is intended for economic gain, overuse leads to negative consequences for both the environment and economic development itself. Therefore, wilderness preservation should be protected by law against harmful economic development. Economic development of the wilderness usually involves significant overuse or destruction of natural resources. A prime example is the rampant deforestation of South American rain forests. In an attempt to boost the economy through timber sales and building developments, the rainforests are being decimated at an alarming rate. While natural resources, such as timber, are considered renewable, large-scale reforestation is not possible when houses and buildings occupy the space where dense forests once grew. Furthermore, the deforestation in the name of economic growth is so wide-spread that regrowth would require hundreds of years. Without proper controls, this type of development leads to continual destruction of wilderness with no replacement of the natural resources. Continual consumption of natural resources may provide short-term economic gain, however, unchecked use will inevitably lead to global depletion of natural resources. Protection of natural resources is important for preventing economic loss. Economic development heavily depends on the use of natural resources. Timber from forests is used for housing; steel for business complexes requires mining from the earth; clothing factories require cotton plants; and global fuel depends on natural fuel reserves. Because economic development demands the use of natural resources, the protection of the land that produces such resources is vital. Deforestation of parts of the South American rainforest for new housing and businesses is only economically beneficial as long as significant areas of the rainforest are preserved. Ideally, tension between preservation and development could be mitigated by encouraging development that retains as many natural land fixtures as possible. Furthermore, protecting areas programs such as areas of intentional reforestation would allow for resource renewal. In summary, economic development is only economically beneficial if restrained from a trajectory of natural resource depletion. Wilderness preservation, renewal efforts such as reforestation, and developments that retain nature are modes by which to promote healthy use of natural resources.

  12. Hey all! This is my first try at an Issue Task, so any advice or thoughts you could give me would be fantastic. I'm more than happy to read any essays you have as well if you're looking for feedback on your work. Thank you! Prompt: The best way to teach—whether as an educator, employer, or parent—is to praise positive actions and ignore negative ones. Write a response in which you discuss the extent to which you agree or disagree with the claim. In developing and supporting your position, be sure to address the most compelling reasons and/or examples that could be used to challenge your position. Essay: The statement linking effective teaching methodology with exclusive praise demonstrates the insecurity one feels when trying to mentor others, be they children or adults. The assumption, however, that only positive acknowledgement produces a quality learner is flawed as ignoring negative actions will exacerbate inappropriate behavior. Teachers should provide learners with an appropriate amount of both praise for positive action and correction for negative action. Because many parents think their children are angels, teachers fantasize about inspiring and uplifting their students, and employers aspire to train employees to be masters of their fields, they may feel inclined to focus exclusively on praising a learner’s positive actions, either out of bias or fear and guilt in disciplining them. This well-intentioned praise, however, may have detrimental effects on a learner’s emotional stability. Psychological research shows that exclusive praise is parenting can cause a child to grow into an adult who holds feelings of superiority above others and has difficulty empathizing and socializing with his or her peers. If children witness friends being disciplined by their parents and yet experience none from their own family, they may believe that they have never done wrong and because others have, clearly they are superior to their peers. Furthermore, never experiencing correction can cause a person to be unprepared for a reality in which he or she is not the best. If high school teachers, for example, refuse to challenge their students and correct them when they demonstrate poor inquiries, they will enter into college or the workforce quickly realizing that not only are they not the top of their class as expected, but they also lack the skills to advance their knowledge. Additionally, ignoring negative actions silently reinforces the idea that such behaviors are societally appropriate and correct. Children may express harmful ideas that they either absorb through the media or simply do not understand are harmful and erroneous (e.g. that fat people have no will power; that only gay men wear pink; that people of other races are lesser). If a parent or teacher does not specifically address these issues and explain to the child the effects that stereotypes have on the target populations, these ideas will only exacerbate into adulthood. Ignoring harmful ideas expressed when a child is young could lead to that child becoming a self-righteous bully and bigot in adulthood. Proponents of ignoring negative actions will suggest that excessive critique can also be damaging to a learner. It is true that continually facing criticism would be disheartening and discouraging. It is important to note, however, that a balance in teaching is invaluable. Just as an excessive emphasis on praise can be damaging, so can excessive criticism. Therefore, rather than upbraiding or chastising, correction is discussed. Moreover, not every small feat or misstep needs to be addressed. People will benefit from evaluating their own actions, once given the tools by educators, to develop their critical thinking skills and becoming better citizens. It is understandable why many may have difficulty disciplining or correcting learners, as acknowledging negative actions is uncomfortable for both parties involved, but when this acknowledgment leads to discussion and understanding, and is balanced with appropriate praise, a learner can flourish. Both excessive praise and excessive criticism are detrimental to a receiver. Therefore, teachers should provide learners with a just amount of praise for positive action and correction for negative action.
  13. To understand the most important characteristics of a society,one must study its major cities. Writea response in which you discuss the extent to which you agree or disagree with the statement and explain your reasoning for the position youtake. In developing and supporting your position, you should consider ways in which the statement might or might nothold true and explain how these considerations shape your position. ​In ancient times cities were the true cultural and educational hub of a society, they were a close reflection of the characteristics of a society and as close a resemblance as it gets to the psyche of the common mass. For starters the famous ancient cities such as Rome and Athens displayed the cultural trends and the societal traits with admirable accuracy, more or less. The Colosseum in Rome manifested their penchant for violence and the total disregard for human well-being. Fast forward to twenty-first century and the same line of arguments might not hold or seem as convincing. Our present society is much more complex and the simple argument presented in the statement falls well short of truly elucidating our current scenarios and the convoluted dynamics of modern societies. City life in present age can still boast as the center of culture, heritage and education but not in its purest form like in the past. More people from all over the world are flocking to the so called 'Mega-Cities' like Tokyo, New York and London and creating a more cosmopolitan environment. The music scene for example in such cities may not accurately depict the overall cultural preference of that particular society, nor may the food served in the restaurants because in such a pluralistic environment many food vendors might prefer to serve food for particular target ethnicities. Thus it becomes increasingly harder to garner information about the traits of a society from the bigger, major cities. In fact a lot can be extracted from the lifestyle and preferences of the people from the suburbs and the comparatively rural areas where the intrinsic cultural features of a society might be preserved. As most of the agrarian-rural areas are mostly inhabited by people from that particular area the people there are more likely to have a set and well-defined way of life. For instance in Alaska, we might find a hunting rifle in many of the mountain-side homes which signifies the Alaskans proclivity for hunting. Again in a suburban middle-class Indian area we see that the parents forces their children to study all day long implying their view on education as a means to a better life. By observing these suburban or rural places we might get a better understanding of the characteristics of the society. But even observing the rural areas what we learn in reality is the way and norms of the rural societies. In a large multi-ethnic country like the USA or India the suburban or rural areas might be a better indicator of the important features of the society. The sheer volume and diversity of these nations mean that there is no one "true" society. So it becomes impractical to study any important features of a society because different cities, different states and different areas might possess totally different qualities. But in smaller nations like Myanmar or Vietnam the major cities might very well be a decent pointer of the distinguishing traits of the society.
  14. Hi everyone. I am preparing for an GRE test next week and I am very scared about the AWA part. Here is my latest issue writing (with timing). Please help me rate the work. I appreciate Topic :Some people believe that corporation have a responsibility to promote the well-being of the societies and environments in which they operate. Others believe that the only responsibility of corporations, provided they operate within the law, it to make as much money as possibleSome people believe that corporation have a responsibility to promote the well-being of the societies and environments in which they operate. Others believe that the only responsibility of corporations, provided they operate within the law, it to make as much money as possible Essay Corporation is the main force of the society. We know that without corporations the economy will soon be collapsed or becoming weak like it has happened in communism regime like the Soviet empire. As the world evolves, there are more and more requirement upon this main force of the economy. Not only making a lot of money like its origin purpose, some argues that corporation should also be responsible for its local environment and community well-being. I completely agree with this argument and I will give some supportive evidence in following paragraphs. Firstly, Company and corporations carries the most powerful force in the society. It holds most of the capital and workforce in modern society. Therefore, it is fair to say that corporation, along with the government is the main factor have ability to change things in our modern society. For example, take companies like Apple and Microsoft, with their huge capital, they can almost do anything like helping poor people in Africa or giving scholarship for most students in need in Asia. With the limited source of government only, I believe that the situation can’t be greatly changed. Secondly, it is the corporations that produces the main pollution to our environment. Many scientific research had pointed out that our industry production has dissipated millions of tons of toxic to the atmosphere as well as marine habitat. Furthermore, the negative effects of these polluted waste come much earlier than most people thinks. For example, in my country, there are more than 5 villages that had half of its inhabitants suffers from various types of cancer, which can be traced back to the by-product of local industrial operation. Therefore, it is fair to say that corporations should be at least take responsibility for their damage to local environment and community. Last but not least, Corporation works on people’s mutual benefit. Therefore, increasing the living standard of people should also benefit the corporation. In my conclusion, corporation should be responsible to maintain the well-being of local community as well as the environment.
  15. A nation should require all of its students to study the same national curriculum until they enter college. Write a response in which you discuss the extent to which you agree or disagree with the recommendation and explain your reasoning for the position you take. In developing and supporting your position, describe specific circumstances in which adopting the recommendation would or would not be advantageous and explain how these examples shape your position. This recommendation is expressing an obligation to a specific path of educational systems, that’s mean of hundred percent of student before the college should study the national curriculum until they enter college If we start from the beginning we can see how much the period of study before going to college is very necessary in forming the students education, then you can say it is the basic of each student education background for most necessary basics of educations in many subjects , therefore the college level is a late level for forming basics of students or we can assume that college is going to made a student who is more specific in many fields and they should focus on specific materials to study , hence we should consider that not all of students are going to college and the prove for this statement is the statistics of college’s student enrollment for each year , if we take a small example of America the great country during the last decades , America education system is supporting college education only for students with very high grades , through full scholarship or half , but if we think reasonably we can see the percent of students who granted college scholarship and also the rich students they are afford to cover whole college years tuitions to the number of students who is in low grades , also the students who is not able to afford college tuitions , we can see how much students going to lose a lot of cultural and languages skills about other nations , therefore by this recommendation we wasting the rights of nation to learn about other cultures , also we are going to build a close community to its self , then we can see the result of this decision or recommendation how much we grown a closed society on it self Its soundness logically to build a nation has the full awareness of other cultures by supporting a different parts for each year education to introduce to our primary , med , high schools students to understand different cultures therefore this will increase the ability in students to be interest in studying more deeply different cultures during college education , also I have to mention how much understanding of different culture and languages will increase many sides of nation economic by understanding each culture and tradition of other nations and countries to understand its internal markets , also the economic concepts of this nation , therefore the nation who is full of different culture understanding will increase the understanding of different markets , hence the reflection of this steps of educational process will reflect on nation industry , as an example of republic of china , we have seen how much china supporting its educational systems in teaching the Chinese culture for many years and during this old times we never heard about the great empire of Chinese industry like the present days and this is was a reflection of open society who is conscious about other nation culture and languages then start to target specific market , then we can see how much china is very success in spread all of its products and industries through all over the world , finally I’m not agree with this recommendations
  16. Educational institutions have a responsibility to dissuade students from pursuing fields of study in which they are unlikely to succeed. Write a response in which you discuss the extent to which you agree or disagree with the claim. In developing and supporting your position, be sure to address the most compelling reasons and/or examples that could be used to challenge your position. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- The statement gives a huge part of responsibility of educational institutions to dissuade student from being failed or not succeeded in specific fields of studying. This statement gives some hope for students who is confused about fields of study at any educational institutions because it’s a great procedure for any educational institutions to make things more easier on its prospective students, thus by dissuade student from involve themselves of studying something they are not able to succeed in it . Let’s assume the benefits behind this statement came true by clarify the idea and stand view about this statement, most students nowadays are looking for what they need to study and what they are interesting in , but not all of them is qualified to study in specific fields they are intend to involve in it , therefore there is a great example of maharishi university of management in Iowa , if we take a closer look about admission requirements for starting to make a fulltime Master degree in computer science we going to note that’s dean of admission is clarify this course of study is focused on object oriented programming , thus if a prospective student intend to involving in this field of study will be going through object oriented programming test processing to measure each student ability to understand this field of study in specific studying field , hence depend on each test scores they can decide which students will be succeeded and have the ability to pass most of subjects at this field with no preclude . If we are going more far than united stated and cross the Atlantic Ocean so we going to reach educational institutions in republic of Egypt , the idea behind dissuade students from educational fields they could failed in it is surely not considered , therefore as an Egyptian student stand view we can note that most of students is stuck in many fields they didn’t have the required qualifications to succeed and going through it , thus most of governmental educational institutions is full of failed student , thus the number of students each year is increased with unreasonable numbers of students and most of them try to succeed by anyway even with cheating of make illegally payments to succeed at this fields of study , then finally we found a young graduate with degree , but with no educational experience or academic education qualifications .
