Reflection Assignment #1
The two topics I have chosen for my reflection paper are “The Authority of the Bible” and “Faith in God”. I have chosen these two topics because for me they are perhaps the two most important topics that we have discussed so far. What I will attempt to provide in this paper are my personal life experiences and beliefs in regard to my faith in God and the authority of the Bible while reinforcing these personal beliefs with scripture as well as from material that we have read in class.
Faith in God:
Have you ever been going through a hard time and had someone say to you “everything will be fine, all you have to do is have faith.” I know this has happened to me more times than I can even begin to count. And more times than not when I was younger I would simply nod my head and think “yeah right, what does that even mean anyway, have faith?” Well, that’s a great question, because I feel that faith can have a multitude of different meanings. However, the meaning that I want to focus on is bars none the most important kind of faith we can ever experience; and that is of course faith in God.
Growing up I never knew much about being a Christian or the importance of having faith in God. In fact, the argument could be easily made that I was an atheist. Don’t get me wrong, it wasn’t that the Christian religion wasn’t introduced to me a time or ten as I was growing up. No, actually just the...

Just like essays in other subjects, math essays require you to consider your audience. Mathematician P.R. Halmos suggests in his article, "How to Write Mathematics," thinking of a particular person when writing, especially one whose math ways "can stand mending." Therefore, unless directed otherwise, write as if your audience has the same basic level of math skills as you. Though you are writing a math essay to explain an idea or solution, you also want to persuade your reader that your methodology is the best one. Keep in mind your professor or teacher is not the main audience member as he already understands the concept.
Concept Essay Organization
A math essay about a concept looks similar to essays in other classes; it is, in fact, an expository essay. For this, you investigate a mathematical concept, develop further ideas about the theory based on research and make a claim in the form of a thesis statement. To write the essay, start with an introduction by stating the topic and its import. The introduction includes your claim about the theory. Develop the claim in subsequent paragraphs using evidence from your research as support. Conclude by tying up any loose ends and readdressing the theory in light of the information you provided.

Is Higher Education Worth the Price?
“Education is the most powerful thing which you can change the world” (Mandela). This quote from Nelson Mandela stating that getting degree can change your life, family and even the world. Is Higher Education is worth the Price? Is the question many students will love to find out and even pursue? There two points to this question can be answer clearly. There is a good side of this question if you believe in money and personal thinking to getting the best knowledge and but the bad side is that poverty still lives on. Many students don’t want to pursue changing the world just because of pricing on education.
Education is worth the cost, time and investment if not for anything more than this economic destiny is determined through education. Though the economy will shift up and down and, once a degree has been obtained, it can never be taken away. Education and obtaining a degree is the way that education can change lives. Many first generation college graduates' degrees alter their own attitudes about themselves and their circumstances, and change the way they and their families are viewed by others. These graduates not only have refined skills and expanded opportunities in the job market, but have become a center of light for family members and friends who might need extra motivation to change their own reasons. Hardly to state that Debt was the best to go for first generation graduates. “Without loans there is no way I...

Many of us want social change of various kinds. However, there are barriers to that change, and
some of the strongest barriers may be those that we don’t fully recognize - those inside ourselves.
We say we want change. We say we are for curiosity, exploration, independence, and selfdetermination; yet when given the choice, most seem to choose the well-worn path of the status
quo. We are likely to idealize the life of John, the savage, in Brave New World, but who among
us would actually happily live John’s life? We are horrified and bewildered by some of the
choices of Tobias Schneebaum, who has lived a more adventurous and independent life than
most of us ever will. John and Schneebaum went against the grain. Most people say they want
that too, but within our everyday lives, we tend to choose to maintain social order, on both a
micro (everyday life) and macro (social institutional) level, perhaps because it can be so nervewracking to break the rules. It is excruciating, for example, to do “nothing” in the face of a
world that demands goals and activity. Again and again, we choose the norm, yet say we want
passion, liberation, and transformation. But if change is to happen, it must come from change in
the everyday lives of our citizens, at...
...ECON2313 Assignment Essay1
What was the impact of the First World War on the Australian Economy?
Australia’s involvement in the First World War began in the 1914, its actions representative of its support of Britain’s declaration of war. This unity is implied by the amount of men who felt duty bound to serve Britain’s interest, corresponding to 40% of men enlisted who are aged between 18 and 44. Of these amounts, 330000 men went abroad, whilst 60000 passed away and another 150000 returning with injuries (Dyster & Meredith 2012, p.96). Hence, the absence of these men during the period of Wold War One itself signifies major impacts to the Australian economy, coming in the form of a decrease in labour supply, thus triggering changes in the economy to attempt to replace these shortage. This dilemma is further compounded with the difficulties Australia experienced in its trade agreements during the war and its attempt to resolve it through import substitution, which however, triggers both positive and negative changes, hence altering the structure of the economy. Furthermore, the return of the soldiers from war, and Australia’s attempts to reabsorb them to the community also causes difficulties for Australia, which are compounded by the lack of finances involved to act upon this plan, hence straining Australia’s debt.
The rise of the war meant a shift in the allocation of resources in Australia due to import substitution, causing a more rapid...
