I propose a new system of mandatory writing initiatives: four semesters of progressive linguistic study that will revive students passion for literature and improve their writing. To make room, the current scheme of arbitrary sector and foundational requirements should be replaced with a new one. The seminars will focus on the fact that good writing is learned by example. Students should be exposed to the clever construction of words, their myriad arrangements and the theory that molds their organization from examples in published prose. They need to hone their argumentative acumen for longer than one semester, such that they will develop into reasonable and discerning adults. Moreover, they need exposure to the effusive passion of professors who have decided to pursue the subject as a lifelong vocation. http://newjonathangordon.universitypunjabi.org/2016/09/13/some-helpful-questions-on-fundamental-details-in-interview-body-language/These seminars are necessary to combat the dangerous transactional attitude that continues to proliferate on campus. A growing population of students believes they are here for the name of the university on their resume. They pursue a passionless travail hoping that compensation in monies and status will satisfy them in their adult lives.

District Judge Anna J. Brown questioned 25 potential jurors in the morning. By the time the court broke for lunch, 20 remained. Each day, parties to the high-profile case playing out in U.S. District Court in Portland have spent long days listening to prospective jurors answer prepared questions from the judge. Prosecutors and defense lawyers then evaluate who they would recommend eliminating from the pool. The court is seeking to find 12 jurors and eight alternates in the federal conspiracy case against Ammon Bundy and six co-defendants stemming from the armed occupation of a federal wildlife refuge in eastern Oregon earlier this year. If the jury is seated by the end of this week, opening statements willbegin Tuesday. Those released Thursday morning for cause, meaning potential bias, included a man whose cousin’s husband worked as a federal law enforcement officer for the Bureau of Land Management and called the occupation of the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge by Ammon Bundy and his followers “destructive to their movement.” He said he last saw his cousin’s husband at his home on Easter, and discussed the refuge takeover while enjoying a microbrew from Burns. Alsoexcused was a man who saidhe supported the widow of occupation spokesman Robert “LaVoy” Finicum, who was fatally shot by state police on Jan. 26.
