Unit 1 Discussion 2
1. What main argument (or claim) does the author make? What contradictions (if any) does the author make in her argument (or claim)? What competing claims (points of view other than the main one the author defends) appear in the essay?
The main point the author makes is to not just pass students through school, make them earn it.
The contradiction to her argument is that people blame outside influences, such as drugs and divorce for those in high school not academics seriously.
I notice a theme of needed to hold people accountable.
2. What viewpoints may audience members have that oppose the author's main argument? What evidence is there that the author anticipates these opposing viewpoints that her audience members might hold? How does the author defend her argument against those opposing viewpoints?
Young adults going through school should not have it held against them for outside influences that affect their academics.
The author does anticipate these viewpoints and addresses them.
She defends it by showing that after high school, the world is waiting for you, and that it does not cut you any slack because you run into issues that could affect your performance.
3. What assumptions does the writer's title carry?
They are a teacher and should be well versed in the challenges facing students. Being a night school teacher also gives the assumption that they are very familiar with the aftermath for the student that is just passed along in school. They are also a parent, so they understand the emotional side of wanting their child to succeed, and wanting to defend them.
4. What assumptions does the writer's argument carry? Do you agree with the author's assumptions? Why or why not?
The assumption is that the student has control over whether they want to take academics seriously and perform. I do agree with this assumption, but I do…...

...UNIT LINKED INSURANCE PLAN (ULIP) Definition, Working principle, Comparison with Term Plan & Mutual Funds, Benefits & Shortcomings of ULIP, IRDA Guidelines of 2010 & their Impact, Summary DEFINITION * A Unit Linked Insurance Plan (ULIP) is a product offered by insurance companies that unlike a pure insurance policy gives investors the benefits of both insurance and investment under a single integrated plan. * This is an insurance policy that combines life insurance, with investing in the market. * As these investments in the market perform, the investor gets her returns. Several pension plans, child plans or retirement plans are actually ULIPs, in that they follow the same philosophy of investing money in the markets. HISTORY * The first ULIP was launched in India in 1971 by Unit Trust of India (UTI). * With the Government of India opening up the insurance sector to foreign investors in 2001 and the subsequent issue of major guidelines for ULIPs by the Insurance Regulatory and Development Authority (IRDA) in 2005, several insurance companies forayed into the ULIP business leading to an overabundance of ULIP schemes being launched to serve the investment needs of those looking to invest in an investment cum insurance product. WORKING PRINCIPLE * A ULIP is basically a combination of insurance as well as investment. * A part of the premium paid is utilized to provide insurance cover to the policy holder while the remaining......

Unit 731

...Unit 731 was based at the Pingfang district of Harbin, the largest city in the Japanese puppet state of Manchukuo (now Northeast China). More than 10,000 people[1]—from which around 600 every year were provided by the Kempeitai[2]—were subjects of the experimentation conducted by Unit 731. More than 95% of the victims who died in the camp based in Pingfang were Chinese and Korean, including both civilian and military.[3] The remaining 5% were South East Asians and Pacific Islanders, at the time colonies of the Empire of Japan, and a small number of the prisoners of war from the Allies of World War II.[4] According to the 2002 International Symposium on the Crimes of Bacteriological Warfare, the number of people killed by the Imperial Japanese Army germ warfare and human experiments is around 580,000.[5] According to other sources, the use of biological weapons researched in Unit 731's bioweapons and chemical weapons programs resulted in possibly as many as 200,000 deaths of military personnel and civilians in China.[6] Unit 731 was the headquarters of many subsidiary units used by the Japanese to research biological warfare; other units included Unit 516 (Qiqihar), Unit 543 (Hailar), Unit 773 (Songo unit), Unit 100 (Changchun), Unit Ei 1644 (Nanjing), Unit 1855 (Beijing), Unit 8604 (Guangzhou), Unit 200 (Manchuria) and Unit 9420 (Singapore).
