In Singer’s writing, he writes that when something bad is happening that people who are in the position to help should help. Then O’Neill discusses how we should not use people for mere means and to only use people if they consent to it. I agree with O’Neill that we should only use people if they agree with it and that we should only help people in need based on how much we want to.
Singer says that when people are suffering and dying from food, shelter and medical problems that people should help in every way possible. Based on statistics about poverty and the wealthy people in the world, poverty is something that can be solved. There is enough people in the world who could donate to the people in poverty that it would solve the problems of people going hungry, lack of shelter, and lack of medical care. With this, Singer believes that anyone who can donate money to people who are suffering should. Singer thinks they should give all they can until if they gave up any more they would be worse off than the person they are giving to. This goes with the idea of marginal utility. This is a graph where one side is the wealthy person and the other is the person in need. When the wealthy person gives they move down the graph and the person in need moves up it. Then once the two people are at the same level that is when no more giving is necessary. Singer then makes another reference about how we should help people. He says that if someone is walking past a pond and a boy is drowning…
It seemed a disconcerting and dramatic response. What, after all, was the harm in paying a colleague a sincere compliment?
Once one steps into the bubble of indulgence, a four billion dollar bubble in this case, the rules of reality no longer apply.

Emily Dickinson is well known for her unusual poems, however during her life she wasn’t famous till after she passed away when her family started to find 1000’s of her poems stuff in tiny spaces all around the house. Dickinson’s writing wasn’t well understood during her time, she had a uniqueness that was ahead of her time; she had an amazing use of symbols, capitalism, themes and tones in her writing which make reading her poems so intriguing. While growing up she wasn’t the average women, she…

Some of the skills they require include punctuality, organization, self-motivation, self-discipline to mention just a few. It is the role of the teachers, in collaboration with the parents, to ensure that this essential skills are handed over to the students.…
be, but even I remembered this rule and have used it ever since. However, built into the rule itself there is an exception that states: “except after c.” But if you have one exception you will have another and then another. It can make one throw up his or her hands in surrender into the firm hands of the Grammar Police for punishment.
But the video gave me some hope that change is on the horizon as many educators realize that the way grammar is being taught must be revamped. Yes, I…
OMG did you here? i know right!!!! its crazzzyyy! In this day and age, texting is one of the main types of communication. Whether children choose to use correct grammar when texting, do they really know proper grammar for everyday use? Some people claim that children still have the capability to use proper grammar skills, and that they just choose not to. Others believe that children really do not know any better.
With the belief that texting does not effect children’s grammar, one must wonder…

I used to be a staunch prescriptivist. I used to think if anyone, ever, would want to read you writing it needed to be written according to the rules of Standard Written English. And I still think it is necessary for most everyone. Students should be taught SWE as it is the expected and most readily understood by all. Teachers will give higher grades, generally, for assignments written using formal conventions and businesses will expect the writing to follow the grammar rules set by…
Reading Greek only makes two distinctions – complete or incomplete – and only focuses on the present, imperfect, and aorist. On pages 188 and 190, aspect in the infinitive and the imperative is explained in a similar fashion as it was explained above concerning participles. In the reference grammar, Reading Greek defines aspect as “how the reader should look at the action,” only uses the difference between the imperfect and the aorist as an example.
It is not until page 469 in the section…
