Job Interviews

What questions should an interviewer ask?

Believe it or not, the people you interview usually want you to be professional. Although it is easier to find out what a person is like in a regular conversation, most prospective employees have prepared to answer questions from you. If you do not ask any, or ask very few, they might think you don't take them seriously. If you have not done many interviews try asking some open ended questions like:

What would you view as your greatest assets?

What do you hope to gain by working with us?

How do you feel we would benefit most by hiring you?

It is also helpful to learn how long they want the job for. Although you may just assume they want a career, that might not be the case. If this is just a stop on the way to something else for them, you might consider that so that you don't hire them, only to have to hire someone else in a couple of months when they leave.

Spatzy: Here are some common questions asked by the interviewer: -Which are your strong points/ weak points? -Why do you want to work for us? -Why do you think you are the right candidate for this job? -What qualities do you think this job requires? -How did you make a difference to your last organization? -How do you handle criticism? -Can you work in teams? -What motivates you? -What problems did you encounter and how did you overcome them?

Is plagiarism bad?



It's for sure that it's BAD. I can say you why, because it's morally wrong to steal another's possessions; an author's original words and ideas are possessions for which the author is entitled to receive value and/or credit when they are used by another.

Intellectual Property
Writing and Composition

Why would authors consider plagiarism to be such a grave offense?

If you put hours of hard work into creating unique written material, and then someone comes along and steals that work, claiming that they wrote it, then you have a good right to consider that an offense. Thieves are offensive, even to other thieves.

The flipside to this is: if you copy something that someone else wrote, be sure that you use quotation marks and tell who actually wrote it. That way, you will not be stealing the work, you will be quoting it, which is fine.

Founding Fathers
US Constitution

Why was it agreed that two-thirds and not some other fraction of both houses were allowed to call a convention for proposing amendments to the Constitution?

The Amendment Process (outlined in Article V) is meant to be drawn-out and complicated. The Founders made it this way because they didn't want the Constitution to be confused with common legislation and wanted to keep it as higher law (we see this in the supremacy clause of Article 6, clause 2). There are three subsets of majorities: a simple majority (or half plus one - over 50%), a super majority (or 2/3), and a super super majority (3/4). The simple majority requirement for propositions for amendments would make it extremely easy for an amendment to get proposed (especially contemporarily with all the party politics), and therefore would not fall into line with the "higher law" ideal of the document. a super super majority (3/4) would make it too complicated for a proposal to pass, and could prevent necessary and vital amendments from every being ratified, therefore, the super super majority is only used for ratification of amendments, to ensure that the amendment is necessary and appropriate. Therefore, the super majority of 2/3 was decided upon making it not too simple, yet not to complicated to propose amendments, ensuring that the proposal was valid enough to pass with 66%.

Copyright Law

Can you copyright a lesson plan that uses others' copyrighted materials?


Only if you take some of their ideas and re-phrase them. You cannot copy exactly what they have. Copyrights are seldom worth the trouble. I was shocked to learn that others can still steal your ideas as far as becoming an author or selling your paintings (they can copy them with just one or two small changes.) As far as writing others can steal your ideas but cannot copy word-for-word. You also cannot take a science project (which has been copyrighted) or diagrams or any mathematical calculations, etc.

AnswerCopyright law does not protect ideas -- only the expression of those ideas in a tangible form.

If a lesson plan includes REFERENCES to works done by others, you may certainly have a copyright of your own, to the extent your plan includes some creativity (say, in your selection, description and sequence of materials). If you plan to regularly distribute materials copyrighted by others, even for education, you will need a license to do so, or ask the students to purchase an authorized copy of their own for each class.

If the plan itself copies substantial portions of someone else's planning work, without permission or attribution, you have a plagiarism and copyright problem. This can lead to academic sanctions as well as a federal lawsuit.

Wikipedia is a free internet encyclopedia that is created and maintained by general users. Like this site, users can change anything on it (subject to restrictions and further changes or reversions).

Occasionally the entries may become overly complicated in an effort to provide neutral, objective, or comprehensive articles.

It is a great tool for many people to find answers about almost anything. It is also in all of the main languages.
