  • Writing Is Just A Basic Skill

    beginning of the semester, we were asked several questions relating to “Writing Is Not Just a Basic Skill”, a commentary by Mark Richardson. When I had finished answering all the questions, I was confused. So many other students were agreeing that writing was not a basic skill.

  • How Does Poverty Affect Society

    Well based off my research I found two basic guaranteed income models: The universal basic income referred to as UBI and the negative income tax referred to as NIT.
