...This experience helped me learn more about the students of UB and the fun we have at UB. Meeting new students at UB was pleasing. With some of the new students I met, we discussed more on the feeling of UB, in other words do we enjoy our time here? Well I had some interesting feedback from couple students, some were pre-law and others were undergraduates. Students who were pre-law seemed more into work because many of them had the fun back when they were undergraduates and now as pre-law students, they mainly focused on work. Undergrads were different, they enjoy the time here but it really isn’t for them. In other words they want to have fun, they want to see what college experience is really like so when they graduate than they can focus on the work and be more serious. This experience was important because you meet new friends but most of all you gather the feedback from different students to see the feeling they had towards university of Baltimore. You had a sense of feeling of what UB is all about. The Block party was a party for students to release stress from all the work and come out to have fun. The theme of the party was a Pirate setting. This experience would have been more helpful if the party had a better DJ. The DJ they had was not so good, in other words he has no rhythm to his songs. All he did was play the songs instead of being an actual DJ and let it rip. Music is one of the most important things when you are at a party. Without music people wouldn’t enjoy......

...already been used by someone else . It is basically stealing someone’s ideas, thoughts, expressions or even formulas and representing them as your own without really crediting the original author or writer. Use or non-use of quotation marks is also considered plagiarism. It is considered a fraud and an academic dishonesty. Plagiarism is defined in various ways in institutions of higher learning. For example, Randall defines plagiarism as “appropriating another person’s ideas or words (spoken or written) without attributing those words or ideas to their true source” (132). Watkins views plagiarism as “the use of another person words, works or ideas without attribution” (5). Princeton perceives plagiarism as “the deliberate use of someone else’s language ideas or other original (not common knowledge) without acknowledging its source” (Neville, 2010). Plagiarism can be committed in various forms, for example one can clone someone else’s work word for word without changing anything, or changing key words and phrases while still retaining the original context, paraphrasing from various documents and making those portions fit together is also plagiarism ,citing non-existent or inaccurate information about the sources is also considered plagiarism. Self plagiarism also known as ‘recycling fraud’ exists where an individual takes work they have already submitted before and passes it as new work especially if the former had already been published. This is often referred to as......

...at all. Those who advocated the repeal of alcohol prohibition likewise offered no way of winning the battle against drunkenness. Rather than trying to win that battle, we have learned to live with the enemy as best we can. Many conservatives feel repelled by this cynical approach. Those who feel this way would do well to learn from the views of their conservative colleagues about economic policy. Conservatives have long pointed up the unworkability of socialism. Many socialists find this critique cynical and defeatist: market economics offers no solution to the problems of human greed, poverty, and inequality. How can we be content to acquiesce in these problems, when another ideology offers a plan to perfect society and human nature? The key insight that these sentiments are missing is that expressed in Voltaire’s dictum, “The best is the enemy of the good.” Seeking the best imaginable result—seeking to eliminate a social problem—often leaves us worse off. That is because the best is almost always unattainable, and our pursuit of it interferes with more modest strategies that could have achieved a good result, reducing the problem’s size and its collateral effects. The insight conservatives bring to the discussion of at least some social issues is that human society is imperfect because human nature is imperfect. As long as there are human beings, there will be selfishness, there will be crime, there will be foolish choices and people who ruin their own and others’ lives.......
