An imperative sentence is a sentence that clearly states a command or order toward another person or an animal. For example: "Shut the door", or "Feed the dog".

How do you write a character reference letter for a sentencing hearing?

found an example on line. Hope it helps Dear Judge Campbell: I have known Mr. Smith for 20 years through the church. Mr. Smith's lawyer has informed us that he has pled guilty to possession of an automatic weapon. I understand that this is against the law. I would ask that you please consider putting Ron on probation. He is not a criminal. He has always worked really hard throughout his life to help his friends and family. I believe that he will not violate the law again and that he has learned from this. Very truly yours, Steve Brown The letter example above is okay, but do not follow it word for word or even by form. Okay, sorry, it's not so good. Write your own letter. Speak from your heart. Those who have been convicted are going to serve time or some sort; be that on probation, house arrest, modified sentencing, jail, or prison is entirely up to the judge. Too many glowing recommendations have a tendency--as I've observed--to push judges toward harsher sentencings. I think that might be due to the question that seems obvious: if the person being recommended is such a fine citizen/friend/family member, why did he break the law? And, then the guilty party gets made an example of. Do not tell the judge "He is not a criminal." If he was found guilty by the judge or a jury of his peers, then guilt is a foregone conclusion, no matter how innocent he might in reality be. If he is convicted, he is guilty, hence he is a criminal. Do not tell the judge, "He will not violate the law again," especially if you have just told the judge he is not a criminal. Do you see the contradiction? Besides, you don't know that. Do you want to be held responsible if he does break the law again. Do be supportive. Express what you hope to accomplish, how you hope to help the person. Let the judge know that the convict has someone in his corner. One of the biggest reasons for lengthy sentences is the lack of a support system that is directly linked to higher recidivism rates. And this last part might seem like bad advice, and might be difficult for some. Avoid references to church, Christianity, spiritual change, salvation, conversion, etc. Far too many convicted people have usedChristianity as a sort of emergency exit strategy. It has worked in the past, but the success of such attempts is waining. Judges and parole boards are reacting harshly to those who publicly profess Christianity or some other form of religious faith, especially if they did not demonstrate it in their lives previous to the criminal infraction. Judges give harsher sentences and parole boards more readily give parole denials. If you mention it, do so very briefly and keep it in the context of how you know the person: i.e. "We have been members of the same Bible study group for XX years," or "We have been members of the same church for XX years."Do not give the person's testimony for him. Let him do that, and if you talk to him before he goes before the judge, tell him to let his demeanor and actions give his testimony. Again, and I can't stress this enough, speak from your heart. You are not going to successfully BS a judge (well, most judges). Likely as not your letter will have little affect on the sentencing outcome, but nothing ventured, nothing gained. Trying to help won't hurt. That is provided you take suggestions well.

How can peer relations be improved among university students?

Ahhh yes, some proverbial little darlings that can look intelligent and in great stress going over something or other. I've gone to University and worked at a University and dated some University students. I found many of my dates couldn't lighten up and were generally anal retentive as far as kicking back and relaxing or ended up in an intense debate somewhere else rather than with me. I stopped dating University students and went outside of that realm and was much better off for it, yet one of my girlfriends met her husband in University. Then there were what we use to call 'bench warmers' who wasted their brains and partied it up. There seemed to be no middle ground. University is tough and it takes dedication and a lot of homework. Sometimes there aren't enough hours in a day and also many students aren't fortunate enough to have parents pay their tuition fees so may be working one or more jobs. I met a lot of nice people at University, but, I found it seemed important to many to keep flexing their gray matter to prove points. I believe in working hard and working hard at having fun to release tension. Generally University students have a 'drinking hole' (a favorite pub) where they go so try going there to fit in. Some frat houses have parties and it's open to most so go. Be honest about your own personality and don't try to be something you aren't. Try to choose people in the same mind set as yourself whether you are an intense and serious person, or perhaps, it's good to mix with people that know how to have some fun. If one takes University seriously it certainly is intense so it's a must to take at least one day on the weekend to have some fun and relax. This in itself will bring the better side of you out. There are generally groups who hang out together. 'People Study' and figure out what group you fit into and if you don't like a particular one or they don't want new members associating with them, then pick one person at a time that you feel comfortable with. Choose people that are taking the same courses you are. You'll have more in common. You also don't have to stick to University students and can choose friends outside of University. It can be a relief and a good rush of fun. All brains and no fun make for a dull person.

What is Kant's Categorical Imperative?

It is the universal law that will comply with all people that can rationally think and make a morally correct decision that is not based upon their own desires. To not cause harm or inflict damage upon another agent ( another person).

The Categorical Imperative deals with universalizability and states that an act is immoral if it cannot be made into a rule for all humankind to follow. For example, if I say "I will never keep my promises", this would be considered to be immoral because it cannot be applied to all people, for if it were, no-one would keep their promises and promises would lose all meaning.
