...Guidelines for Submitting Papers Papers and articles in Library and Information Studies generally follow the social sciences paradigm. Most papers follow a format like the one outlined here. In graduate school, term-papers are usually about ten pages in length, and should be "publishable" with only minor grammatical changes. Grammar counts. Spelling matters. Do not rely upon automated spelling checkers. It often helps to have a colleague proof read your work. Identification Provide the name of the article, your name and contact information (e.g. your UB Email address). If the paper is for a class, provide the class name and number, the semester and year, and the name of the instructor. Check the SI Web site to make sure you have listed them correctly. You may not present the same essay in two different UB courses without the prior consent of both instructors. If you are writing for a journal, you may not submit the same manuscript to two different publishers at once. However, it is common practice to turn a conference presentation into a journal article. If you do that, be sure to mention that the current paper was previously presented in a modified form, and provide the details. If the paper was made possible by a grant, or with the help of some entity, provide the details. Abstract and Keywords (Required only if you are submitting a manuscript for publication). An abstract is a one or two paragraph summary of the article. A few keywords, (or key phrases), should be provided...

Rev. of Fitzgerald's 'the Great Gatsby'.,

...Adv. English 11 A4 Annotated Bibliography Rev. of Fitzgerald's 'The Great Gatsby'., by Brian Sutton. Gale Cengage Learning. The Explicator, 1997. Web. 23 Mar. 2010. <http://find.galegroup.com>. Brian Sutton asserts that F. Scott Fitzgerald's book, The Great Gatsby, has four interlinked images that traces Gatsby’s rise and fall as he attempts to recapture Daisy Buchanan's love. The first image is in the beginning of the book when Gatsby is seen by the narrator holding his arms wide open to a green light in the distance. Which we later learn is that the green light is on Daisy's porch. It symbolizes how Gatsby wants Daisy's love back again and that his arms are wide open for her. The second image occurs in the middle of the book when Gatsby experiences a moment of triumph, Gatsby and Daisy finally meet. During this meeting, Daisy is smoking a cigarette...which is another symbol of light! The third image is when Tom and Gatsby finally confront each other and while all this i is going on, Daisy throws her cigarette and the burning match to the carpet...which symbolizes that their(Gatsby and Daisy) love is over. The fourth image is at the end of the book when Gatsby is standing in the distance where he once looked at the light in Daisy's house, just hoping and praying that maybe she will return her love for him. Throughout this article, Sutton uses examples from the text to...

Sometimes Our View of People Changed When We Know New Information About He

...When I was in China, there was a Japanese colleague named Satoshi in our company. He is 1.80 m high, good-looking, less than 30 years old, but looks a bit old. We seldom talked with him because he rarely laughed and we gave him a nickname "what things" (a homonym of his name in Chinese). Because I worked on the same floor with him, I met him often. He always looked lonely and unhappy. Maybe because he was lonely, he often worked overtime. He never went out with us or walked with any colleagues. We thought he deserves the loneliness because he left his hometown and came to work in China. But one day, there was an incident that changed my view on "what things". It was at noon, I was going out to eat with colleagues and we met him in the elevator. Because it was lunch time, the elevator was overcrowded as usual. When the elevator stopped at the main floor, there were a lot of people waiting outside to go up. As we hurried out of the door, I saw “what things” was standing by the door with his finger pressing on the button. When all the people went out, he still remained the same posture. I thought he was going to the garage downstairs but then I discovered that the elevator was ready to rise. I was so curious that I looked what in the end he wanted to do. “Does he forget something; ready to return to the office? What an idiot.” I talked to myself. I saw that he waited until the last person went into the elevator. Then, "what things" loosed his finger and dragged out of...

Fallacies

...Abstract A fallacy is an argument that uses poor reasoning. An argument can be fallacious whether or not its conclusion is true. A fallacy can be either formal or informal. An error that stems from a poor logical form is sometimes called a formal fallacy or simply an invalid argument. My paper will involve the fallacy of false cause, fallacy of accident, and fallacy of equivocation and amphiboly. It will gives examples on how there are many connections of the world and the fallacies. Fallacies Talking about fallacy in logic means an error in reasoning that seems to be correct but when you check closer, the fallacy is not correct. There are several different groups of fallacies which all have different definitions. There are fallacies of relevance, fallacy of defective induction, fallacies of presumption, and fallacies of ambiguity. These are called informal fallacies or material fallacies, something like a replica. There proves to be over a hundred different fallacies. I will only talk about a few, which are fallacy of false cause, fallacy of accident, fallacies of equivocation and fallacy of amphiboly. I will explain how the different fallacies connect with each other in an either similar way or a distinct way. You will see how fallacies have such similarity to meanings we have learned about since we were children. I will tell you how the different fallacies apply to the world and how they are all similar to our everyday thoughts. Fallacy of false cause and...

...Ten Ways School Prepares You for the Work World The first day you pack a briefcase and head off to a professional job interview may seem far away, but the time to build strong skills and valuable habits is now. School is full of opportunities to develop the qualities most important to employers. Writing Skills If you dread essays and other writing assignments, consider this: in a recent survey of employers, communication topped the list of skills they look for most. By doing your best on every research paper and lab report you write, you're preparing yourself for a career. Health professionals keep patient charts, researchers and artists depend on the money they collect by writing grant applications, software engineers write technical specifications, and nearly everyone writes email to people inside and outside their organization. And before you even get the chance to interview, you'll need to represent yourself in cover letters and resumes. Speaking Skills Next time you're assigned a class presentation, think twice before dismissing it as an unimportant part of your education. Employers look for speaking skills in job hopefuls and it's never too soon to practice good eye contact and other public speaking techniques. Teamwork Skills How many times a week does your class count off and break into small groups to tackle a challenge? You practice voicing your opinions, listening and responding to others, and reaching compromises. By the time you leave high school, you can be...

Education

... Education is the process of facilitating learning. Knowledge, skills, values, beliefs, and habits of a group of people are transferred to other people, through storytelling, discussion, teaching, training, or research. Education frequently takes place under the guidance of educators, but learners may also educate themselves in a process called autodidactic learning. Any experience that has a formative effect on the way one thinks, feels, or acts may be considered educational. Education is commonly and formally divided into stages such as preschool, primary school, secondary school and then college, university or apprenticeship. The methodology of teaching is called pedagogy. A right to education has been recognized by some governments. At the global level, Article 13 of the United Nations' 1966 International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights recognizes the right of everyone to an education. Although education is compulsory in most places up to a certain age, attendance at school often isn't, and a minority of parents choose home-schooling, sometimes with the assistance of modern electronic educational technology . Education can take place in formal or informal settings. Etymology Etymologically, the word "education" is derived from the Latin ēducātiō from ēdūcō which is related to the homonym ēdūcō from ē- and dūcō . History Education began in prehistory, as adults trained the young in the knowledge and skills deemed necessary in their society...
