I watched both the Ted Talk video and the video of the United States apologizing for inserting diseases unknowingly into citizens of Guatemala. I am honestly not sure how I feel after watching both of these videos. As for the Ted Talk, I do not think I understood him correctly in the sense that health is a capability. Yes, I understand everyone has the right to it, but not everyone has the resources, money, or mentality to stay healthy. I agree that after helping a country by donations, it is still necessary to continue to check up on everyone to make sure they are still doing okay. After watching the video about the information on the United States, I was extremely saddened, but honestly not surprised. There are so many things that have happened in the past that no one knows about. It is disgusting that someone would ever intentionally inject diseases into someone else unknowingly. I am curious to see what the government is going to do about this one, especially if families in Guatemala start to step forward.
You must proofread your paper. But do not strictly rely on your computer’s spell-checker and grammar-checker; failure to do so indicates a lack of effort on your part and you can expect your grade to suffer accordingly. Papers with numerous misspelled words and grammatical mistakes will be penalized. Read over your paper – in silence and then aloud – before handing it in and make corrections as necessary. Often it is advantageous to have a friend proofread your paper for obvious errors. Handwritten corrections are preferable to uncorrected mistakes.
Use a standard 10 to 12 point (10 to 12 characters per inch) typeface. Smaller or compressed type and papers with small margins or single-spacing are hard to read. It is better to let your essay run over the recommended number of pages than to try to compress it into fewer pages.
Likewise, large type, large margins, large indentations, triple-spacing, increased leading (space between lines), increased kerning (space between letters), and any other such attempts at “padding” to increase the length of a paper are unacceptable, wasteful of trees, and will not fool your professor.
The paper must be neatly formatted, double-spaced with a one-inch margin on the top, bottom, and sides of each page. When submitting hard copy, be sure to use white paper and print out using dark ink. If it is hard to read your essay, it will also be hard to follow your argument.Global Health discussion 3
