    The rising crisis in the East brings to light the horrors of war and with it the need to discuss riveting matters such as the child soldier epidemic. “The Truth About Child Soldiers” is an article which seeks to make the reader think about the subject in a different light. To do this, Mark Drumbl uses deductive reasoning and ethical thinking to convince the reader that although child soldiers should pay for their actions, they should all be considered individually and given suitable punishments.…

    When I was doing an OPVL with my classmates in history, the article that I had to read from was called “Reagan did it,” written by Paul Krugman. Throughout reading the article, I noticed that much of Krugman’s points were only the flaws of Reagan during his presidency. Krugman did not mention any good things that Reagan did, therefore, I came to the conclusion that this was an anti-Reagan reading and that Krugman himself must have been anti-Reagan as well. The only way of knowing I used to come…

    It is natural and demonstrable that, given equivalent initial values, an exponential function will resolve to lower values than any linear function. If the exponential function is slow enough, which it may well be, it would be easy to conclude from observation that, since at no point has the exponential function exceeded the linear function, it shall never do so. As anyone knowledgeable in mathematics or aware of the conclusions of the Malthusian model could tell, however, this is certainly not…

    Part B (4) The scientific method has often been proclaimed as a naive method that uses an observation to generate a statement which is then generalised; extrapolated from what had been observed to what has not yet been observed. The statement is then tested to a certain extent. If it successfully dodges any failure, it is accepted as a true theory and henceforth, a justified belief. This is an inductive inference as it uses the past to predict future behaviours and serves as the justifying…

    How do stereotypes and inferences affect other’s understanding of ourselves. Have you ever guessed anything about someone you didn’t know well? Chances are that we all have. Stereotyping, the simple act of just inferring something about somebody or having prejudice without past knowledge, is immensely common nowadays. The Outsiders, by S.E Hinton is scattered with stereotyping and inferences. When I started reading the book I didn’t notice stereotyping or anything of that sort in the book.…
