Instructors use those because they have to, but those don’t always catch plagiarism. On the other hand, I’ve worked at a place where one assignment was a draft and another the final version, yet both had to be submitted separately to the plagiarism checker. Needless to say, the second paper came back as too close to…
The problem with those anti-plagiarism services is that they ding you for listing the references you’ve used. So, it creates the perverse incentive to use fewer references, because the more references you use to back up your arguments, the higher your percentage of “non-original content” gets.
I had to grade thousands of papers and exams when I was in grad school. If they were all writing to the same prompt, I’d have a mental checklist of the things I expected them to touch on in their papers. So as I’m reading, I check that off, while noting all grammar/spelling/citation issues and always keeping an eye…
It comes down to wether or not your students care about the reports they’re handing in. Because I sure as hell didn’t. I almost feel bad for all of my English and writing teachers throughout the years, because I don’t think a single kid cared about those classes. They were there because they were required to be.
Goddammit, it’s not about sex appeal. It’s about looking like your natural self and being punished for it. So I guess you think people someone should just get a minimum wage job at a fast food restaurant so they don’t have to change themselves to meet the expectations of their employers who are mostly white people and…
You have agency but you also need to be able to eat and put a roof over your head. If you won’t get hired because you are “too dark” or your hair is “too nappy” decisions have to be made. Do you give in to be able to live or keep your principles and not be able to live
Piece of odd information I picked up, if you ever have a need to disarticulate a skull, my anatomy professor said the way to do it was to fill it with dried beans, and soak it in water. As the beans swell up, the pressure they apply from the inside of the skull is relatively evenly distributed, and the bones will…
Women of color have been reprimanded at work and school because of their natural hair is seen as messy and unprofessional. Also people of color who have lighter skin are treated better by society at large.
My favorite technique uses a dime, a handheld mirror and a piece of paper. Just about any mirror will do, even the one on my wife’s purse. I’ve used this many times in the past for partial eclipses.
You’re wrong about the size of the image. A pin can give you a very sharp image, but the size will be entirely dependant on how far away the pinhole is from the projection screen. Changing to a nail will make the image brighter, (and fuzzier,) but the size will remain the same if the screen distance is the same.
My wife and I were eating at a restaurant during the 2012 partial eclipse, and I had a business card on me from something or other. I poked a hole in it, and let it shine on the tablecloth of the restaurant. Dead simple. We also saw the same tree effect outside.
When I was a kid, decades ago, we used two 3 x5 cards, poked a pinhole in one, then held it over the other.
It’s always so weird to see comments like this. Sex is part of life. You know, the first part of the site’s name? It’s sure as hell more relevant than an article about how you organize your sock drawer using sugru and binder clips. But then, I skip those posts, like you could skip this one. But you didn’t.
Remember, rates always increase, no matter what law is on the books, because medical care gets more expensive all the damn time, and we have zero checks and balances on that.
I get all my charcoal for food consumption by free:
It literally takes two minutes and the bag contains the mess.
Now if you take that lifetime of fractional health benefits and account for quadruple the cost - wouldn’t it be more useful and valuable as a whole you to have skipped the quinoa and instead diversified your diet by spending that excess money in a manner such as on fruits and nuts for snacks instead of the cheaper…
If you’re inflexible, you might feel like there’s no point in trying to stretch. But without stretching, how will you ever get more flexible?
1g fiber. 1g sugar. That isn’t a gap at all. Stop using %’s as they are misleading. Also, carbs aren’t bad for you, 6g difference isn’t much in the large scheme of things. There is a huge margin of error in calorie/macro count on the labels. So worrying about so few grams is not seeing the forest for the trees.
