Why Should Anyone Care About Your Paper?

- George Singleton said “You do not have to explain every single drop of water contained in a rain barrel. You have to explain one drop—H2O. The reader will get it.” Ever since I started writing in school, I was always taught to explain my point. Why are you writing the paper, or story. Why should anyone care to know about your paper. When I was little this was not a problem, I could just write the exact words… In my paper I am writing about….. (Subject / story). Then write my story very simply, then for my conclusion of the paper it would say why I was writing the paper, usually including the prompt I was given, or why the story was important to me and my life....   [tags: Writing, Essay, Paper, Michel Foucault]

The Pros and Cons of Over the Counter Birth Control Pills

- Modern birth control pills were approved by the FDA in the 1960s. This was heralded as a women’s revolution. No longer were they required to use sponges, diaphragms or condoms.

However, women are still required to see their doctor on a regular basis for continued prescriptions. Since the safety of oral contraceptives has been touted and well established, why then is it not sold over History For centuries women have tried many means to prevent pregnancy....   [tags: Contraception, Birth Control Essays]
