Dealing With Difficult Essay Topic

I want to walk you through the beginning process they write an exegetical paper as you know this class will culminate in a couple of weeks with you writing perhaps your very first ever exegetical paper so want to give you kind of the standard of what that looks like and we have uploaded two documents to our popular class folder that will help you to walk through that one is called a short guide to an exegetical to write an exegetical papers that was actually originally created by the authors of your textbook the vol and haze and then i’ve modified it to be exactly what we want here. You can always find help with your essay at Edusson.

Then we also have a paper that was written an exegetical paper it kind of as a guide perhaps that will help you to see the format and these two kind of parallel each other hopefully for the most part you’ll see that in the work that we’re going to do so let’s get started and walk through these papers if you have opened up the short guide to write next difficult papers it will look somewhat like this and so what I want to do today is just kind of walk through a few aspects of it I trust that you will read it in time the very first thing that your exegetical paper will include is of course the title page it should be a turabian eight title page you are familiar with that hopefully if not please pick up a copy of turabian eight the Chicago Manual style 16 but it’s a shortened form if you will for us is what’s called turabian eight notice that the title of your paper whatever that will be will be on the first line and then an exegesis of Ephesians but for us it’ll be – one through ten and then of course at the bottom in non bold text will be your name the course in the date that’s my birthday October 24th so you can always remember that.

As you’d look back at this assignment anyway on page two which will take up approximately one page you’ll see that you should have a the main idea an outline and if you’ll notice here there’s some instructions about what that should look that should include but here on the next page is kind of a preview of what that would look like for you you would put the text here the Ephesians for you to 1 through 10 and then at a single statement you would summarize the main idea of that passage right here at the very top of the page and then you’re gonna outline the passage as you are beginning to learn right now and the portion of the course of jury in as we dealt with the Ephesians book and we looked at the big outline last week and now you’re looking somewhat at the surrounding context that’s going to help you get to that.

Organizing The Analysis Section

People are just ruled by human nature they need policies and procedures to be controlled right and in this case over here let’s say you’ve got the policy and procedure companies there’s a couple of ethics crises but people make the right choices because I don’t know maybe there’s enforcement means or something like that right and that lends arguments let’s support anyway for policies and procedures you see what I’m saying so you want to actually say that that the way that I’m going to look at these cases is that if I see examples of you know failures in the non policy procedure and successes in the policy and procedure areas then I will know that this is this will end supports my thesis so you see what I’m saying you’re being very explicit about not just assuming that the stories tell the story that you want to but actually showing exactly how that story proves the thing that you say you want to prove okay as explicitly as you can.

so anyway so this analysis section right here organizing the section based on the reasons why the readers should believe your argument you’re using examples from the cases in data to support the reasons why your argument is valid right in this particular case there were was a violation and it was individual ethics and this is how it happened and you include some details and so this clearly is how it links back right so this is one reason at any may you may have several reasons and so your analysis section is a series of that how does your evidence outweigh the most valid arguments on the opposing side right linked back to your live review section where you’re looking at the other arguments the other potential answer it’s just like why why do I win hey this is bad neither that’s really about winning and losing right but you know you just like why is this valid why is this true versus what some of the other alternatives are if not where does that leave your argument there’s still something that you can learn from from your thesis or your approach.

If you don’t just sort of really slam-dunk this I will also say that yeah you want to say what can you prove with your evidence and what can you prove it’s okay say I don’t know more precisely they don’t know there isn’t enough evidence is about what argument like there was a in one of the last orientation classes I taught somebody was writing about leadership and their their original argument was that leadership was not it’s not something that you inherited but something that could be learned and she did a lot of research and basically said look I can’t make heads or tails of this because you know it’s basically so much evidence on both sides that nobody can seem to agree on either and so her argument basically became that you know both sides are wrong and that’s okay.

How to Write a College Essay

Today we are going over how to write a college essay. An outline is a really helpful way to organize your thoughts throughout the whole writing process from the beginning when you are just brain storming to the very end when you are editing.

Let’s take a look at an example of an outline. Here is a sample outline. It’s not completely filled up but it’s just basically the idea of how you might organize your thoughts for your paper. First start with an introduction, the sample is about the growing market for wines in Ohio so you would have a brief comment leading into the subject matter. Then about the thesis of Ohio wines whatever that thesis is whether it’s Ohio is the best place for wines or a growing community. Then we would go to the body and you would organize this part based on the main points you want to make. So these headers of the roman numerals would each be one of your main points. For instance, you might want to start off with the history of Ohio wines. Then you would have your supporting points wineries have been here for many years, recent history in growth and then under that supporting point.

It’s great to include as many details as you can with all these separate lines so that when you go to writing you would know where to go. Then continue through all your main points and then at the bottom you would have your conclusion where you kind of wrap it all up. Restate your point, restate your thesis and have a concluding statement to tie  up all together.

Gilt by Katherine Longshore

Book Review: Gilt by Katherine Longshore

Publisher: Viking Juvenile

Release date: May 15, 2012

Pages: 398

Summary: Before Catherine Howard became the queen of England, she was a chambermaid with big dreams. Her best friend, Kitty, did everything in her power to make sure those dreams come true. So when King Henry chooses Cat to be his next wife, Kitty is summoned to serve her best friend at court. But serving the queen comes with a price—Kitty must bear many secrets, for court life is full of deception and lies.

My thoughts: Wow! Gilt completely blew me away. I was expecting a bit of a dense read (historical novels often feature writing that is a bit slower-going), but Katherine Longshore managed to make this account of Catherine Howard’s reign a quick read. Longshore’s writing is reflective of the time period, but it’s simple and easy to read. Those daunted by a large page count have nothing to worry about, especially considering how addicting the story is. It’s nearly impossible to put Gilt down once you’ve started; it’s as if you’ve been sucked into the Tudor court yourself, and, like all the courtiers, you must know what will ultimately happen to the queen.

Gilt is narrated by Kitty, but the story focuses more on Catherine. This is because Cat has what we call a “big personality”: she steals the spotlight from everyone she comes near. Kitty remains a shadow for most of the novel, but that’s okay, because having two boisterous characters in one book might be a bit too much. Kitty’s loyalty is her best quality, and her discreteness comes in second. I admired her dedication to the incredibly selfish Catherine; were I in her place, I would have found a new best friend. Katherine Longshore does a fantastic job of crafting a character (a main character, at that) who we love to hate. I could not stand Catherine, but I found her unyielding belief in her own supremacy fascinating. This girl needs a serious reality check, but it’s kind of fun to watch a character because of her own demise (is that weird?). I suppose the point I’m trying to make is that the two main characters in Gilt are such dynamic and believable people—I admire Katherine Longshore’s ability to elicit emotions through them!

If you’re a fan of historical fiction, give Gilt a try! It will feed your need for scandal! (Seriously. I got a little giddy over how much under-the-table stuff was going on in the King’s court! Wowza!) Gilt isn’t just about drama, though: it’s about choices—good or bad—and how they lock you into certain situations. It’s about the inevitability of fun coming to an end. Though Catherine’s are coming true, her visible happiness may only be surface-deep. The simultaneous complexity and pure fun of Gilt is fantastic. Highly recommended!

5/5 stars

For those who like: historical fiction, court drama, overconfident heroines.

Hipster Central: The Changing Face of Neukölln in Berlin

How does it look like?

Rents are rising, but Berlin is still very cheap by European standards, and so a huge number of young people from other parts of Germany are relocating there, as well as a lot of foreigners, and as they arrive, the city changes.

This is most obvious in the district of Neukölln, which is popular with Turkish migrants and is now the center of the slightly grungy hipster population of Berlin. There are a huge number of migrants in this part of the city, and more than 40% of the population is of a non-German origin.

Since the Berlin Wall came down, gentrification has washed over the German capital like a wave. Previously working class neighborhoods have been embraced by families and young professionals, permanently changing the face of large parts of the city, sometimes for the better, and sometimes… well, not.

Neukölln was directly on the flight path for Tempelhof Airport (site of the Berlin Airlift), and the jets would practically scrape the rooftops as they landed. The airport closed in 2008 and was converted into a park, and so many parts of Neukölln suddenly found themselves living next to one of the largest inner-city parks in the world… which of course contributes to rent going skywards, as the jets no longer do.

Neukölln has become a magnet for the young people who wear skinny jeans, old man style glasses and call themselves artists. Yes… hipsters.

The influx of people with a relatively high disposable income has done wonders for the nightlife, with a number of bars and entertainment venues springing up, seemingly catered to that hipster Berlin feeling, with cheap drinks and eclectic furnishings. There are a number of these places around Emserstraße and in the streets surrounding Schillerpromenade.

One of the most famous bars in the area is Villa Neukölln (Hermannstraße 233), which was built on the site of a luxurious old villa, which was demolished and turned into a Turkish carpet store (naturally), before opening as a bar. This is the definition of Neukölln hipster; with old couches, rugs and a laid back vibe. They’ve recently constructed a stage and host many bands and live performances.

Another venue that seems to be rather attractive to the skinny jean clad Neuköllners is the Agora Collective (Located at 50 Mittelweg). Agora is an arts co-op space, which features a restaurant/bar, gallery, film screenings and a co-working space where the young artists/writers/designers can rent a desk, thus giving them some semblance of an office. Agora squarely targets the English speakers of Berlin, and their website is entirely in English.

While some of the long-established locals might grumble at the way their neighborhood is changing, bar owners will no doubt be pleased at having a group of people that keeps their establishments busy 7 nights a week. And those who run one of the many 24-hour kebab shops in Neukölln are delighted at having a steady stream of clientele who need a salty snack as they stumble home at 4am.



Take Advantage of Part-time Employment

Take Advantage of Part-time Employment – Part One

Extra income from part-time employment can be a great help during trying times. This is the reason why more workers are taking part-time jobs.


However, part-time employment has other benefits aside from the extra income. Part-time jobs may require you to take up additional career training or other short-term online undergraduate programs. Additional education and work experience will boost your employment value and provide you more career opportunities, particularly if you are serious in making a career change.


If taking part-time employment is necessary to get by, your decision can be more than just a “filler” to pay the bills. Part-time employment could be your path to a better career. Here are some of the more popular part-time jobs currently available:
