It’s been a few years since I was in college and I have to say tests were always my least favorite part. I always worried about how I would do and in turn completely stressed myself out. I did really enjoy doing most research papers especially when they were agricultural related since I was a pre-veterinarian major. I always found the hardest part of these were making sure I had my citations down correctly. Using cite.com would have came in so handy to learn how to mention my sources and give credit where it was deserved.
Plagiarism has become such a huge problem even when it comes to articles online such as blogs. I have to review guest articles very carefully to make sure they aren’t already on another blog. It was always a problem in school too. I can remember students copying other students work or articles they had found on the web. I would never have tried such a thing. I was terrified of ever getting in trouble! I actually enjoyed learning about most subjects that I was researching.
I always had trouble with knowing the correct format to use. It seemed like every time I wrote a research paper I would have to review and remind myself just how the sources were supposed to be formatted. Did you know there are over 30 different formats of citing? Who can keep track of all those different formats? When my son starts writing his first research papers I am definitely going to be suggesting cite.com for him to use. It will be a quick and easy way for him to learn how to cite a research paper.
Protesters lined the street at Mark Cuban’s Landmark Sunshine Cinemas in New York City last night and successfully shut down the midnight premiere of “The Upper Footage”.
A fellow blogger organized the event (I was not in attendance) and, from what she told me, the protesters used signs, wore t-shirts and handed out flyers. The response they received from pedestrians was overwhelming as they distributed 1,000 flyers in less than 2 hours.
As I have discussed prior to this post, the film documents a young girl’s death after she overdoses on drugs. The studio behind the film has been trying to get it out for years and we must continue to unite across the country to stop this filth from spreading to our theaters!

Here is a cute Valentine’s Day treat to take to your kids school. It’s a fun twist on the conversation heart candy. I meant for this to have words in frosting on the tops but I did not have the right frosting tip at home when I made them. So, I suggest writing cute phrases on the tops in frosting after you’ve made them. It’s a cute way to make them unique and the kids will have fun reading them. I made chocolate cupcakes and topped them with pound cake dipped in frosting. Yum! [Read more...]
Okay, so I usually just brush these types of things off my shoulder and move on with my daily activities like bring you the best reviews and giveaways here at Giveaway Bandit, but today is a little different. I was on Crushable.com reading an article on the college football player, Manti Te’o, hoax (although I am still unsure as to if this poor guy knew what he was getting himself into… who knows) and I came across one of the most disturbing articles I have ever read.
