Parts Of A Research Paper

We’re talking about the abstract and discussion so just a quick review remember the main parts of a research paper that we’re working on in this class are an abstract introduction methods also known as materials results discussion and a reference list for milestone for this week you’re gonna be actually doing a few more things than we’ve seen this week you’re gonna be doing an abstract discussion you’re gonna also do future research ideas you’re going to include discrepancies and you’re also going to be graded on articulation of response so the abstract is going to be a snapshot of your entire paper this is something that is the first thing that people read when they’re looking at a paper it’s usually about a paragraph long it can be longer but you don’t really want it to be much shorter and you want to include at least one to two sentences from each major section of your paper so you want to have a few sentences of introduction you want to cover background purpose and objectives. Learn more about structure of a research paper at Edusson.

In there you’re gonna have a few sentences of methods or how your research was performed a few sentences of results what we found and a few sentences of discussion which is going to be your conclusions and and what it all means so I’ve got kind of linked the abstract here this is one that’s on a bit on the longer side that we’ll go through so the very first part that you see here in black is is the introduction background part of the abstract so it says a quarter of all lega morph species worldwide are threatened with extinction although captive breeding programs sometimes are implemented as emergency conservation measures such efforts often experience limited success a better understanding of the contributions of genetic diversion husbandry to allow successful breeding and captive like Mars is now an urgent conservation priority so what we did here is we kind of gave that broad background unto endangered species or endanger leg morphs and we also introduced the concept of captive breeding which is what this is about in blue this is our methods so it reads we used regression models to explore the genetic biological and husbandry factors associated with pairing success growth and survival during the tenure captive breeding program for Columbia Basin pygmy rabbits rocky legis Idahoans is an ecologically significant unit at Washington State University.

So this methods is very broad unlike your methods in your paper it doesn’t get detailed and specific it’s just a very broad over you for you saying we use regression models and what we were actually looking at genetic biological and husbandry factors and then in red we have our results and this is a little bit long for results but still within reasonable limits so it says parent success increased whereas juvenile survival decreased over the years of the program Perry and success and early juvenile growth declined with increasing Columbia Basin pedigree of the female suggesting the inbreeding depression among the small number of related founders pygmy rabbits face trade-offs between high reproduction and high juvenile mortality related to pen size diet quality and pairing strategy pygmy rabbits had greater parent success and early juvenile growth but lower juvenile survival in larger pens juvenile survival was also lower on the higher quality diet juveniles born at warmer ambient temperatures had a higher survival to emergence from their natal burrow.

Chronological Order In Narration Essay

When you`re writing a narration essay what you need to do is read the topic sentence and then put one two three four in the blank of the sentence you think should come first the sentence that comes second third and fourth okay a combination of talent and hard work has propelled Alicia Keys to musical stardom so now look at the sentences some have dates of years in them some have ages mentioned those are clues to time or time clues to help you put these four sentences in order as if you are writing a paragraph about Alicia Keys alright so here are the answers did you get all of them correct number one that’s the earliest date in 1988 seven years old you have to time clothes. Check out other articles on narration in essays at Edusson.

So of course that’s going to be the first sentence in the paragraph right after the topic sentence the next one number two as a teenager so we have moved from seven-year-old to teenager right that’s time order the third one mentions at age twenty you’ve gone from seven to teenager to age twenty we know that teenager is somewhere between 13 and 19 this statement did not have to say when she was 19 years old alright it simply says a teenager teenager is still a time clue word and then statement number four 2005 now that is the latest year that you see in these statements so of course that is going to be the last one so we have moved from seven-year-old in 1988 all the way down to 2005 where she is over 20 years old in fact she’s 23 so make sure that you tell your narration in a clear chronological sequence from beginning to end transitional words move you from one paragraph to the next or it moves you from one part of your story to the next part of your story.

Since narration essays rely on chronological order or time sequence words and phrases that signal time are helpful to the reader to keep us clear on the order of your experience okay let’s take a look examples of transition words that you will use in a narration essay afterward after that currently eventually finally first later meanwhile next now soon then or you can use dates of the year as we saw in a previous example in the Alicia Keys paragraph but use transitional words so that we are clear that you are moving to another part of your story and that you are wrapping it up so here are some tips on writing your narration essay number one remember a narration essay is not a short story it is not a journal or a diary entry it is still and as say that requires an introduction a thesis of body and a conclusion remember your narration si needs to have a point why are you sharing this story what can readers learn from your experience make the point of the story known in the conclusion of the essay.

How to Write a Killer Essay | Essay Tips, Tricks, Hacks, etc…

Today, I’m going to be sharing my tips for you guys to write a killer essay and overall tips and tricks to do so.

So the first step is to make sure that you have all your required materials. This means that you have previous essays, books, your laptop etc. You can also have pens that you need. The second step is to know any specifications that you have such as if your essay is MLA format what the due date is. So a tip for this is to actually try an essay checklist.

These are super helpful because you can either add your own specifications to this or you can use the ones online but it definitely helps you to organize your essays. Another big thing about writing an essay is actually planning out your essay. You can outline it yourself but planning is a big daunting task but it is the most important. So this is basically how I organize my essays. So on the top of a piece of paper, I’ll write the topic and the prompt or whatever the teacher gives me that I need to write my essay about and then what I’ll do is I’ll write my thesis statement on my first line and then I will do points. Basically this is a spot where I’m going to write down all the information I want to include in my essay in no particular order.

So I’ll write down facts from my notes, I’ll write down quotes and stuff from books I’ve read or from my notes that need to be quoted and then what I’ll do is I’ll organize out my information in paragraph form. So usually I will write my topic sentence down so that I know what I’m going to be writing about.

Usually I relate this topic sentence back to my thesis so that it flows better and then I go back and edit it. Once I actually finish writing the rough draft of the paper then what I do is I point down the different points that I want to discuss in any quotes or any citations that I’m going to need for this part. So a tip for this is if you want to organize your information more visually you can use different color highlighters and that way it’s going to be a lot easier for you to actually be able to see the information that you have and organize information and your paragraphs and see what relates to what topic.

So the next step is to actually write out your essay. However, you need to get this done. I just basically put some music on and start writing as much as I can and then I go back and edit it once I finished that. So one thing that you can do to make your essay better is to add transition words to vary your sentence structure and to add vocab or fancy words.

I hope you enjoyed reading this article and I will get back to you soon.

Business Letter format and reference

Differences Between a Business Letter and a
Friendly Letter:
1. The Heading: In a friendly letter, you
would normally just write the date in the upper right
hand corner. However, in a business letter, you need
to put your
address followed by the date. This can be placed at
the upper right hand corner, or aligned on the left
margin of the page.
2. The Inside Address: This is not put in a
friendly letter, but in a business letter you also put
the entire address of the recipient, along with the
name of the person you are addressing if possible,
and their title.
3. The Salutation: In a business letter, you need to
follow the salutation with a colon, not a comma.
4. The Body: Use formal language and be
straight and to the point. Make sure you put all the
details that are important to your communication.
5. The Closing: Usually a formal “Sincerely,” and then
a space and your name typed below. The space
should allow room for a handwritten signature.

Time Tactics of Very Successful People

Do you feel there just aren’t enough hours in the day? I feel like that all the time. The fact is though, that people that accomplish a great deal experience the same length of day that you do!

How do they do it? For one thing, successful people are very efficient with their time.

This book packed with strategies to make the most of the time we have, and avoid wasting time. I would say this book is a must-read (unless you are already 100% efficient with your time, or you have not desire to accomplish anything).

I am time-challenged in much the same way as colour-blind people are colour-challenged: I have difficulty perceiving the passage of time. There are so many things I want to accomplish, yet at the end of the day, it is easy to find that I have frittered away my day on non-productive, non-relaxing time wasters.

If this sounds familiar, this is the book for you!

Even if you are pretty good with time, this book is sure to help you get better at managing your time and using it effectively

What I Like About Time Tactics of Very Successful People

First and foremost, this book is full of practical and useful advice.

The format of this book is perfect for people who are busy, yet need to spend some time learning about time. It is a catch-22: the more you have to do and the less efficient you are, the less time you have to read books like this!

The book is divided into 15 chapters, each of which contains short (1 to three page) explanations on how to manage a particular type of situation. This means that you can read one complete idea in a small parcel of time, and then you’ve got it. You can implement it immediately. After using one or two techniques outlined in the book, you will save enough time to read the rest of the book over a few weeks. And it is good to read a bit at a time, so you can absorb the ideas and try them out before going on to the next idea.

The book is also small enough to carry around easily and it fits into a large pocket. This means that you can use otherwise wasted time (waiting for an appointment for example) to get better at using your time.

What I Dislike About Time Tactics of Very Successful People

Actually, I have nothing to say in this section. Maybe this book doesn’t tell you everything you need to know, but it will both get you started, and get you well beyond the basics.

This book is an unqualified top-rated book for anyone who needs to get better at managing their time. It sure has helped me!

Building Habits in 21 Days, or Why Smoking is Bad for Freelancers

Search for this post’s title on Google, and you’ll see that what I once heard from a mentor is true: It takes 21 days to build or break a habit.

We’re almost done with our self-imposed holiday. But even before we all get back to work on January 2, I plan to start keeping a resolution tonight: for new year, I resolve to stop smoking. We all know the health risks associated with lighting up (surgeon generals and governments all over the world have made sure of that), but I plan to quit tobacco because I’m also affected as a freelancer:

Cigarette Breaks Break Your Flow. When I feel the urge to smoke, I rush through the task I’m currently doing before taking a break. So that I can claim to myself that I’ve finished something before leaving the desk. But recently I realized that my dependency has created a need to interrupt my work. In other words, if I didn’t feel like smoking so often, I’d stay put and get more work done.

Working While Smoking Also Breaks Your Flow. When I’m “fortunate” enough to be able to smoke while working, taking my hand away from my keyboard to take a puff represents another interruption. Without having to “make the most” of a cigarette, I’ll be able to concentrate better on what I’m doing.

Again, Back to the Health Risks. My family has a history of cancer. While I’m young (I just turned 25), I want to squeeze every ounce of productivity out of my body. As I smoke, I’m raising my blood pressure and increasing my risk of cancer, two diseases that are robbing me of my youth.

So, wish me luck this new year, and pray that I break the habit. Hopefully, when I get back to you on January 21, I’ll be as smoke-free as a drenched fire. Happy New Year to you all!

The Long Term Prospects of Freelancing

We freelancers enjoy a more flexible schedule (at least those who make a living exclusively through freelancing), and the opportunity to earn more within the same amount of time. But like corporate workers, it’s easy for us to fall into the rat race, where making money depends solely on our efforts. In other words, if we’re not careful, we’ll forever be working for money. What happens when we’re too old to work, or when our ideas are no longer on the money?

As we make a living through contract work, we should strive to reach a point where our hard-earned money works for us. One way to do this is to create money-generating assets along the way, so that when the time comes to retire, we’ll be certain of our financial future.

That’s not to say that freelancing is a dead-end career path. In fact, I believe freelancing provides greater opportunities to attain true wealth because being control of your own schedule makes it easy to pursue lucrative, asset-building opportunities.

Jun de Leon is currently the most sought after photographer here in the Philippines. He’s the favorite of local celebrities, and getting photographed by him is a status symbol of sorts.

Using the money he made as a freelancer, Mr. de Leon founded Wings Photography Inc. This company employs other photographers and artists, and is able to rent an office in a high-end commercial district, because of the income it generates—not solely from the efforts of Jun.

Wings Inc. represents an asset. Even if Jun decides to stop accepting freelancing projects, the company will continue earning money for him. The rest of us don’t have to start with such a big-scale operation, especially when we don’t have that much capital to work with (yet). Some small ventures, like vending machines, could prove a lucrative way to invest your money.
