  1. The following is a memorandum from the business manager of a television station. “Over the past year, our late-night news program has devoted increased time to national news and less time to weather and local news. During this time period, most of the complaints received from viewers were concerned with our station’s coverage of weather and local news. In addition, local businesses that used to advertise during our late-night news program have just canceled their advertising contracts with us. Therefore, in order to attract more viewers to the program and to avoid losing any further advertising revenues,we should restore the time devoted to weather and local news to its former level.” 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 The argument is that restoring airtime to its former weather and local news glory will increase viewership. However, this stance is flawed for various reasons, all related to the wrongfully contrived assumptions leading to this conclusion. This argument is wrongfully based on the assumption that local businesses have pulled their advertising because late night news programs focus on national news. These businesses might have different more relevant reasons for canceling their commercials. They may have noticed that advertizing, whether at this time, through this medium, or on this channel, has not increased their sales or profit. Their target audience might not regularly watch late night news, or the news at all, so their ads are fruitless if aired then. They may belong to a younger demographic that is uninterested in news stories, whether it be local or national, and do not tune in. Therefore, the assumption that these companies have pulled their advertizing due to the lack of local and weather reports is invalid. An assumption that the complaints overrule the positive comments also persists in this conclusion. There is note of complaints, and that these complaints mostly concern local and weather coverage, but there is a lack of indication as to whether these complaints are minuscule compared to the successes of national news stories. This is tied in with the assumption that these national news stories are not wanted. Perhaps viewers previously complained that there were not enough national stories; therefore the channel decided to increase national coverage. These stories could now be beloved, with many celebrating its inclusion, while a small population persists a return to more consistent local coverage. The memorandum is unclear about these details, therefore rendering the conclusion that increased local news would mollify and reintroduce a wide range of viewers inconclusive. There may even be more viewers now, due to the inclusion of national news stories. This further invalidates the conclusion. The assumption that all the complaints are concerned with the lack of weather and local news coverage is also flawed. The memorandum states that complaints are concerned with the local/weather coverage, but it does not explicitly state that they are concerned with the lack of such coverage. It may be concerned with the content of the coverage, such as its relevancy or interest to viewers. It could also concern the appropriateness of the coverage. The assumption that the complaints received are about the lack of coverage is unwarranted. The assumption that increased attention of local and weather news stories would welcome more viewers and reintroduce advertising interests does not stand soundly based on the memorandum’s details.

    correct my essay

    Hey, please take a look at my essay on world hunger. Also, how am I supposed to reference the sources I use? (I'll shared the way I did but not so quite sure this is how it should be done) There is a lot of discussion about the issue of whether GMOS are the answer to world hunger. My decision is that GMOs are not the answer to world hunger, many factors contribute to this situation good and bad. Higher population growth is expected to occur mostly in the underdeveloped world and the risk to human health by applying the herbicides, both for farmers and anyone who might breathe its airborne residue as well as pollen polluting neighboring organic crops and overall the end product of a GMOs cannot be assured that they are safe or hazard free. The promise of GMOs to feed the world fades very fast and causes an unrealistic take on how we can solve an issue that is much bigger than processing GMOs. Firstly, a man recently died from ingesting a GM tomato that had an altered gene, giving him an allergic reaction. When he ate it, he had a severe allergic reaction to the pesticide resulting in fatal death. Something as simple as a GM tomato could not be identified by the doctors and could not find out what was wrong with it to save the man in time. Furthermore, from this situation we see that GMOs not only are not safe but are also not reliable. (A GMO nut could be harmless yet a tomato could be deadly). These results from GMO organisms can only be tested throughout time and can result in fatalities. World hunger may be more present with GMO crops because of death and the unfairness of how safe they are to everyone around the world. Also with GMOs if something is wrong with a product they have to recollect all of the product wasting food, time and resources “more than 7000 tons of tomatoes will therefore be ceased across the country by ministry inspectors and public safety officials.” Experimenting with such a valuable item (food) cannot be played with too much. The altering of genes is hard to convert back wasting many organisms. Moreover, superweeds are are not ‘super’, they are weeds that have evolved to avoid a particular weed management strategy. They have evolved to withstand applications commonly used as herbicides. But GM crop farming allows farmers to use less pesticides/herbicides in the beginning. Overtime weeds and pests develop an immunity from certain chemicals used on crops. Because of GMOs, superweeds have developed and are becoming a large issue for farmers. So forth, farmers are a huge aspect in our economy and GM items, especially cotton has driven some to suicide. Bt cotton “contains a gene from a bacterium bacillus thuringiensis to ward of certain insects..these seeds initially cost more than local hybrid varieties, spurring local traders to sell packets contain a mix of Bt and conventional cotton at lower prices.” The artificial seeds and misinformation on how to use them caused crop and financial loss. The put a huge weight on farmers, he had already been under a “tight credit system that forced them to borrow from local lenders”. By spending time and money on coming up with GM products we have caused not only waste in food, but deaths that have been catering to food supply. References: [h=1]Diehl, P.

  3. 12:01 – 12:28 (writing) – 12:37 (checking) – 12:44 (adding conclusion) We learn through direct experience; to accept a theory without experiencing it is to learn nothing at all. The statement assumes that learning occurs only when somebody has hands-on experience, instead of analyzing theories. Good example supporting this idea can be found in the field of humanities or arts. Many politicians, especially in the developing countries were poorly educated and gained their position either thanks to militaristic successes or by having powerful friends. Although lack of formal education, through which they could learn about theories on how to lead a country, they have learnt it from real-life experience debating with their opponents and making discussions with their advisors. The statement exaggerates the results of learning only from theories. It claims that nothing can be learnt from them. On the other hand, history has showed that in royal dynasties princes had to undergo a very strict formal education, which in aftermath made them successful leaders. This situation differs from the one described above with the level of certainty that royal dynasties enjoyed as opposed to, revolutionary guerrilla leaders who had to struggle to achieve their positions. Example that substantiates this idea can be found in the difference between the monarchs of XVIII century Germany, that is the Frederick I and Frederick II also known as the Great. Frederick the Great was a direct successor of Frederick I and differed considerably from his father. Frederick I who was poorly educated focused during his reign on militaristic expansion. Although his son did not stopped this strategy he used also diplomacy to support it and in result enjoyed much greater success. In addition he brought prosperity to his nation, by supporting local economy and arts. It can be inferred that much of his successes were brought from the fact, that before he became the king he was formally educated and prepared for his function. Education in academies of fine arts is also focused on learning through doing. Analyzing arts is especially hard, because contemporary art lacks any universal system. Nowadays artists are allowed to do almost anything and many critics are troubled with determining what is and what is not valuable in a piece of modern art. Pablo Picasso was well-known for his errant way of working. At the time when traditional art was still popular and most of the painters focused on emulating the old masters, Picasso created pieces made with little reference to the history of art. Furthermore his influence brought many artists even further to create pieces of art without any reference to reality. Abstract artists like Kandinsky withdrew from any formal system towards learning art directly from practicing it. Formal education can be on one hand source of wisdom, on the other hand in some situation it becomes merely a distraction. In well-established countries people enjoying stability and being able to determine their future career, formal education is an opportunity to become a more perceptive and insightful individual. However, many artists and people, whose subject matter refers to particular fields of humanities may benefit more from experiencing their profession instead of analyzing it. In addition to that revolutionary leaders often enjoyed great triumphs without being formally educated.

  5. Question: Some students enjoy taking distance-learning courses on the computer or television. Other students would rather tall of their courses with a teacher in a classroom. Which of these options do you think is better? Use specific reasons and examples in support of your opinion. My writing: Nowadays, a lot of distance-learning courses are offered on the Internet which attract many learners in different parts of the world. On the other hand, some people prefer the traditional ways of learning in classroom settings. I like the former, as it has many advantages that the traditional way of learning does not have. First, it is much more convenient and flexible to learn from taking a distance-learning course than to go and learn in a classroom. We can access to the online course with just a few clicks on our computer, and we can decide to view the lecture or tutorial videos whenever we like. On the contrary, we are required to go to a specific place at a specific time if we enroll in the traditional courses with teachers in classrooms. The time schedule may clash with other courses or our own schedule. In addition, if we miss some important points when viewing the lecture video, we can just pause the video and go back to the previous parts - something we cannot do in a classroom. Second, distance-learning courses offer more choices than traditional courses. We can have access to all the courses provided by different institutions across the globe. We can study physics with MIT Prof. Walter Lewin, or we can take other courses taught by renowned professors and teachers. But very often, we are only limited to specific choices of courses provided by our schools or community if we take the traditional courses. The courses that we would like to take may not be available, or the instructors may not suit our learning style or habit. Fortunately, all these problems can be solved by taking distance-learning courses as there are so many options available. It is unlikely that not a single course or instructor from all over the world appeals to us. Some people are concerned about the lack of interaction among students and teachers in distance-learning courses. However, this is not true. There are discussion forums in the course homepage and students can engage in discussions on the lastest materials covered, learning tips, assignment, etc. Sometimes, there are even video conference so that you can talk to the instructors or other students using your web-cam. The number of students who enroll in distance-learning courses is also higher than that of traditional classes, so there can be hundreds, thousands or even more learners who accompany you. The interaction will not be less than that of a classroom, especially when the class is small with only ten or twenty students. Distance-learning courses are becoming a trend because many features and advantages that are not found in traditional classes can be found in these convenient and flexible courses. As long as we adapt to this new mode of learning, we can definitely gain more than we have ever imagined. Any comments regarding the language, grammar, content, organization? And can someone give me an estimate score? thanks
  6. Think carefully about the tissue presented in the following excerpt and the assignment below. “Everyone makes hundreds of simple, spontaneous decisions daily. When the issues are not morally complex and the stakes are small, our normal instincts are sufficient. The problem comes when we don’t distinguish between minor and potentially major issues that demand a much more careful approach. But even with significant consideration, it can be very difficult to choose between two options that seem equally valuable.” Adapted from Michael Josephson, Making Ethical Decisions Assignment: What two options are the most difficult to choose between? Plan and write an essay in which you develop your point of view on this issue. Support your position with reasoning and examples taken from your reading, studies, experience, or observations. Everyone of us needs to make tons of decisions throughout our lives. Most of the decisions are easy to make, while a few of them require much more careful considerations. Choosing the university major is definitely the hardest decision to make, as very often people are faced with two options – the major that interests them but provides a less bright future, and the one that has a better future prospect yet is less interesting. The reasons for this are that people are concerned about money, social status and their own abilities. First, the major that we are interested in may require a larger sum of tuition but less financially rewarding in the long term than other option. Consider my own situation, I was wondering whether to study biochemistry or medicine (which is offered as an undergraduate course in my country) during my college application. Becoming a scientist and conducting research is my childhood dream, but being a doctor can enjoy a higher job security and salary. Besides, to study science in the best place in the world – the US, requires more than $50k a year, which is a couple times more expensive than to study medicine. This sad reality makes me wonder if I should pursue my dream as a scientist. Second, one option of college major may lead to a career that has a higher social status than the one people really interested in. Take studying law and literature as an example, the former is usually more respected by people, because professionals are usually perceived to be more successful. Those who study literature might be looked down by society, unless they become Nobel Laureates in the future. Given the potential low social status, people may find it hard to decide whether to do the things they enjoy or go and seek a higher social status, which is the concern of many people. Third, people may be uncertain of their abilities in more advanced study if they choose the major they are interested in. What we study in high schools is just introductory stuff, while the materials covered in college or even grad schools may require more natural talent. For instance, students who become fascinated by physics and aspire to become physicists after studying Newton’s Laws in high school may re-consider their ambitions again after they discover that many undergraduates fail to comprehend the more advanced theories in college. They doubt their own abilities may not be sufficient to handle the major they really like. Most people are told to choose the fields that are interested and passionate to study, but in reality the decision does not depend on one’s interests only. Therefore, when faced with the options of interests versus future prospects when applying for college, many people find that making the appropriate decision, which can have profound impacts on their latter lives, very difficult.
  7. The following appeared as part of an article in the travel section of a newspaper: “Over the past decade, the restaurant industry in the country of Spiessa has experienced unprecedented growth. This surge can be expected to continue in the coming years, fueled by recent social changes: personal incomes are rising, more leisure time is available, single-person households are more common, and people have a greater interest in gourmet food, as evidenced by a proliferation of publications on the subject.” Discuss how well reasoned you find this argument. In your discussion be sure to analyze the line of reasoning and the use of evidence in the argument. For example, you may need to consider what questionable assumptions underlie the thinking and what alternative explanations or counterexamples might weaken the conclusion. You can also discuss what sort of evidence would strengthen or refute the argument, what changes in the argument would make it more logically sound, and what, if anything, would help you better evaluate its conclusion. The article links the growth in restaurant industry in the country of Speissa to other important factors in the economy. The articles goes on to predict the continued growth on those factors for example: social changes like personal income rise, single person household getting increased and people having a greater interest in gourmet food, as evidenced by new publications on the subject, but the article fails to connect the cause and effect for the conclusion. Also the article fails to hold the ground that the expected changes are going to continue in the future. Firstly, The article did not mention the cause of surge in the restaurant industry for the last decade. It could be from tourism where the tourists from around the world contributed in restaurant surge and it might be over as some other place has been discovered. It could also be that government had a subsidy for entrepreneurs for restaurant business, which is why there was a surge rather than any of the mentioned reason. The article fails to make a direct relation between the conclusion to the various macro events going in the economy. Secondly, the author’s mention of social changes like publication of gourmet food publication could be because people had more free time and they want to make different and gourmet food themselves. This could be a reason for increased publication and not because people want to eat out. The article also fails to mention if the restaurant serve everyday menu, local or gourmet dishes as if the restaurants don’t serve gourmet food then again the publication of gourmet food articles is for other reasons than liked with surge in restaurant s in S. To summarize, the articles fails to connect the various reason to the conclusion directly so the argument could be substantiated. Lack of concrete evidence makes the argument flawed and the conclusion is unacceptable.
  8. ISSUE : Although many people think that the luxuries and conveniences of contemporary life are entirely harmless, in fact, they actually prevent people from developing into truly strong and independent individuals. The author asserts that the luxories actually prevent people from developing into truly strong and independent individuals.i agree partially to the given arguement.According to me luxories are meant for easing our lives.It is the person himself who is responisible for his her own deeds and later blame on the luxories which are provided to him. Luxories can be defined as anthying that eases human work and does the work in less time hence saving time. If we observe the influence of luxories in our lifes we may notice that they are an intricate part of our lives from an ironing press to televisions cars laptops air conditioners etc.We as humans have become so much dependent on them that we feel unsafe or uncomfortable in thier absence.Some of the people are so addicted to thier mobine phones that they start feeling insecure in thier absense. We should not let ourselves be slaves to these luxories. Man has invented these luxories. Luxories havent invented man. On the other hand , if we consider the automobiles, it makes going from one place to another a very facile task. The geographical boundries have shortened. The people living on the outskirts now can easily look up for jobs in the main city as they can easily up down without much difficulty using their vehicles.This helps them become them strong and confident individuals with financial stability. Hence it can be shown that these technologies can prove to be of immense importance in shaping up our lives. Admittedly , owning a automobile has become a status symbol. People flaunt them and get a sense of pride in it. The more bigger and costlier the automobile is the more bigger is the stature of the person owing it. In my opinion one must not let the luxories affect you they are just there to ease your work we shouldnt completely rely on them. An apt example would be how we become so dependent on the autombiles that we cant go without them even to the nearby grocery shop. In conclusion, luxories are just meant for easing our lives. It is the person himself who is responsible for his her own deeds and later blame on the luxories which are provided to him. If we dont let luxories rule us they can be of immense importance in shaping up a traits of the individuals personality else we ll become slaves to these luxories hindering our independence.
  9. Analytical Writing Essay2: Issue Topic: "We must reduce overhead here at the cafe. Instead of opening at 6am on the weekdays we will now open at 8am. On weekends we will only be open from 9am until 4pm. The decrease in hours of operations will help save money because we wont be paying for utilities, employee wages, or other operating costs during the hours we are closed. This is the best strategy for us to save money and remain in business without having to eliminate jobs." Essay: A decrease in the hours of operation may not be the sole resolution to decreasing the cost of operation and the sustained employment. The hours of operation should not be reduced because sufficient evidence was not provided that hour reduction will decrease overhead. Further analysis is required for the revenue potential sacrificed during the reduced hours, a breakdown of all costs of operation, and the benefits of maintaining current employment. Enacting a reduction of operation hours without further analysis of the cause for reducing overhead may not provide a solution. A paradigm supporting this is if the cause for overhead reduction due to insufficient revenue was unforeseen theft by an employee despite reduction of operation hours the cafe will still not produce revenue. A decision cannot be made until the total amount earned is calculated for the hours of operation cut. If the amount earned is greater than the cost of operation between the hours of 6 A.M. and 8 A.M. on the weekdays than the operation hours should not be limited. The hours proposed to be limited on the weekends are prime hours for individuals that may wish to get coffee or breakfast before work. Reducing hours on the weekend may be a poor decision if this is a popular time for families to enjoy a meal at the cafe. To determine whether reducing operation hours will facilitate greater revenue potential a spending budget must be provided with the proposal. The main loss of revenue may not be due to the utilities, employee wages, or costs of operation during the hours closed. Furthermore, other potential causes of lost revenue may include food, transportation, number of employees, salary per employee, entertainment for customers, and quantity of customers. A motivation for the decrease of overhead provided was the sustaining current employment. How many employees are currently employed? What is the cost of employment for each individual? How many individuals are required per shift? If overhead was reduced due to a reduction in the number of customers than it may not be required to have the same number of employees. Hours of operation should not be reduced without further details regarding the revenue potential lost for the reduced hours, a detailed budged of all current costs, and the enterprise benefits of maintaining the current employment.
  10. Do you agree or disagree with the following statement: “The best teacher is one who is very knowledgeable about the subject matter”. People say that the best teacher is one who is very knowledgeable about the subject matter. Although it sounds rather logical, I suppose that it is not completely true. Of course, being knowledgeable is one of the most important characteristics for a teacher, but there are some things which can spoil everything, so the best teacher should be not only knowledgeable about the subject matter, but also should be easily understandable, have a good character and so on. To begin with, let’s imagine a math teacher who knows math really well, maybe he or she is even a genius in this field of science, but the teacher cannot express her or his ideas in a clear and coherent manner. Can we consider this teacher to be the best one? No, we cannot. We cannot think so despite the fact that this teacher knows his or her subject really well. So, being easily understandable is one of the most important things for a teacher. Then, we should take into consideration the person’s character. Having a good character is important not only for friendship and other relationships but for being a teacher as well. For example, there are some rude and peevish teachers who become unbearable for their students and they can start hating the subject which is tutored by this person too. The teacher should be an easy person to make his subject interesting and adorable. As a conclusion, I would like to say that having a good teacher means a lot for a child. Children can start like the subject because of the teacher and you can stop like it because of the teacher as well. So, maybe someone will choose to be a biologist just because he or she had a really good biology teacher who made him or her interested in biology in childhood and being a grown up this child will invent a treatment of cancer, for example. I think that teachers are as important as the doctors are. The only difference is that doctors cure people and teacher treat our future educating our children.
