What Makes A Wrong?

- No one can be right without someone/something being wrong. Thusly, all things are wrong until proven otherwise. To prove this true or untrue would be to prove this point; thusly, acknowledging that it is so. Truth is nothing more than commonly accepted opinions. Questioning what makes something true is to question its existence; to question existence or validity is to create and destroy truth. This in mind, never trust what can be conveyed as it can be manipulative. Nothing is correct, yet, none can prove why until all the questions are answered; to answer one question presents the question of how to make the incorrect, correct....   [tags: Question, Critical thinking, Sentence, Proposition]

Ode Of The West Wind By Percy Bysshe Shelley

Mandatory Minimum Sentences in Canada

There has been much debate over this topic, as it has quickly become implemented for the sentencing of drug offenders, drug-related crimes and banned firearm offences.

It seems also that equiformity has some semantical features ; maybe this is not so clear for individual signs but sentences are often considered as meaningful combinations of signs....   [tags: Equiformity Language Composition Papers]

My Mistakes and Improvements in Writing

- ... Also, reading out loud, it helps to notice grammatical errors. Although I have acquired helpful reading, writing, and analytical skills, I am not an expert in any of them. I still struggle at noticing my mistakes and knowing when to make the proper correction. For instance, in my essay “We Are Where We Come From”(Essay 2) after knowing most of these skills I still managed to make a lot of mistakes such as run-ons, fragments, and other errors. An example of one of my run-ons is “Without our families to give us a sense of who we are the world would be like the Dead Sea full of lost souls searching for their personal identity.” This run-on is missing a comma after “are”, and before “world”....   [tags: reflective essay, run on sentences, ]

Juveniles Tried in Court

- Laws regarding the age at which young people can be tried as adults must change because allowing juvenile offenders lighter sentences under juvenile court laws is only enabling their behavior and failing to teach them about real consequences to crime, yet not always in the best interest of the child such as alternatives are. It is necessary in some cases to send the juvenile to adult court for prosecution. But it is really hard to keep kids safe in an adult jail. Also by not giving youth their own separate facility they are not getting the proper education that they need to survive if they are ever released from prison (Gerdes 118-122)....   [tags: juvenile offenders, light sentences, jail]
