Disadvantages of Plagiarism

... Disadvantages of plagiarising. According to the Collins Dictionary of the English language (Hanks, 1979), plagiarism is ‘the act of plagiarising’, which is ‘to steal ideas or passages from another’s work and present them as one’s own’. In other words plagiarism is the act of presenting another person’s work through essay, speech, write up or electronically. Intentionally or unintentionally reproducing merely copying, rewording, paraphrasing, adapting, work that was produced by another person(s) without proper acknowledgement in an attempt to gain academic benefit, merit or reward. Intentionally or nonchalantly allowing such reproduction to happen may also complement plagiarism. This core ethical issue needs addressing immediately. Educators will need to consider how students are interacting with information technology and how ethical these interactions are. Unprecedented and unparalleled access to information without consideration to its ownership or authenticity provides ongoing concerns for society. Conger and Loch put it very succinctly. "For every new technology, new situations arise." (Conger, Loch, 1996). Plagiarism is not only copying the words of another person, which can be avoided summarising the sentences, but also the use of words, ideas, data, organization and original thoughts of another person without acknowledging the individual and the most commonly used platform is the internet, Such activities can allow room to serious consequences,......

Advantages and Disadvantages of Boarding School

...What are the Advantages and Disadvantages of Boarding Schools? Boarding school can be a great place to meet new people and to have fun while you're at school, but day school is also a good place to go if you don't like being away from your parents or you have great friends where you are. Both are really great, but boarding school can be really fun and you get really close to the people you meet there. One cannot say that boarding school is better or Day school in comparison, while both are effective in producing good results in terms of academics, extra-curricular, social interactions etc but for some parents it's difficult to give extra-care and time to their child from the drudgery of their routine, and also due to other reasons they send their children to boarding. There are number of benefits in a boarding School. 1) Daily coexistence leads to friendships, not just among students, but also with faculty members. 2) Often Low student-teacher ratio. The median class size may be 12 students per teacher, with a student-to-teacher ratio of 6 to 1. 3) Boarding school reduces compartmentalization, because academic studies are blended with other activities, such as sports. This natural juxtaposition increases the appeal of both pursuits. 4) Provides stability not available in families where one or both parents travel or are virtually never home due to work schedules. 5) Safety of individuals residing in boarding school is typically higher than non......

The initial equipment even though would be an investment and learning aid is expensive. After the initial cost there is the fact of training the staff/ facilitators to use the equipment correctly as bad usage can cause incorrect teaching to pupils. Also coming under cost is damage, as, if the equipment gets damages then the damage repair fees are required to get the equipment back up and running. Distractions such as the internet, computer games and email is also a big disadvantage. Dis......

Educational Disadvantage

...Educational Disadvantage Name: Institutional Advantage: Educational Disadvantage Equality in the Australian education system is something that is yet to be realized. The term equality is not in reference to gender but has been used in reference to socio-economic status of the students. Australia is first world nation. As such, one would be forgiven to assume that equality in the education system was long realized. It comes as a surprise that Australia has one of the largest disparities in academic performance. The disparity between the best performing students and the world performing lot is among the highest in the world (Australia, 2009). Research has established that in Australia, about 42% of all the students who enroll into institutions of higher learning are from well to do families (Australia, 2003). On the other hand, only about 15% of the students who enroll into institutions of higher learning (Australia, 2002). It is then clear that there is quite a high level of disparity in the Australian education system about socio-economic status. A fact that seeks to compound the gravity of the situation is that about 40% of all the indigenous students in Australia are unable to meet the mathematics and reading standards that have are expected of Australian students (Teese & Polesel, 2003). Such a situation necessitates the need for a discussion of this issue. If this situation is not addressed, it will culminate in a severe deterioration of the quality of the......

But, judgments of the students’ academic performance can’t be measured hundred percent for there are multiple factors that arise when it comes to studies.

...propaganda to basically provide something to do when one is  Disadvantage of Media There are different types of disadvantage ------------------------------------------------- Structure[edit] A DA usually has four key elements. These four elements are not always necessary depending on the type of disadvantage run, and some are often combined into a single piece of evidence. A Unique Link card, for example, will include both a description of the status quo and the plan's effect on it. A traditional threshold DA, however, has a structure as follows: Uniqueness[edit] Uniqueness shows why the Impacts have not occurred yet or to a substantial extent and will uniquely occur with the adoption of either the Affirmative's plan or the Negative's counterplan. Example: If the negative team argues that the affirmative plan will result in nuclear proliferation, it would also argue that the status quo will avoid nuclear proliferation. If the Affirmative claims that nuclear proliferation is already occurring, the negative team could argue that adoption of the plan would result in a unique increase in nuclear proliferation. If the plan causes no net change in the rate of nuclear proliferation, the disadvantage is not unique to the plan, and therefore not relevant. External links[edit] For the disadvantage to have relevance in the round, the negative team must show that the affirmative plan causes the disadvantage that is claimed. If the DA stated that the plan takes......

Disadvantages of Monopoly

...Disadvantages 1. Exploitation of consumers- a monopoly market is best known for consumer exploitation. There are indeed no competing products and as a result the consumer gets a raw deal in terms of quantity, quality and pricing. The firm may find it easy to produce inferior or substandard goods if it wishes because t the end of the day they know very well that the items will be purchased as there are no competing products for the already available market. 2. Dissatisfied consumers- consumers get a raw deal from a monopoly market because quality will be compromised. Therefore it is not a wonder to see very dissatisfied consumers who often complain about the firm’s products 3. Higher prices- no competition in the market means absence of such things as price wars that may have benefited the consumer and as a result of this monopoly firms tend to charge higher prices on goods and services hence inconveniencing the buyer. 4. Price discrimination- monopoly firms are also sometimes known for practicing price discrimination where they charge different prices on the same product for different consumers. 5. Inferior goods and services- competition is minimal or totally absent and as such the monopoly firm may willingly produce inferior goods and services because after all they know the goods will not fail to sell. 1st Disadvantages of Monopoly – Lower quality at higher prices Companies having monopoly over a product are bound to take advantage of the fact that the consumers......

...important aspects of identity for people to connect them with others of their religion, race or region. Mindanao Culture & beliefs (n.d.) stated that, in the Philippines, Mindanao is the most culturally diverse island where people of different languages, tribes and races meet. Every child enters the educational world with a unique set of beliefs, learning styles, and perception of learning based on interactions in their home and the cultural environment developed throughout their life (Stephens, 2012). According to The Importance of traditional cultures and indigenous practices (n.d), culture helped us develop and mold our attitudes and characters to be productive, useful, purposely and progressive lives. It has been theorized that, the academic achievement of ethnically diverse students will improve when they are taught through their own cultural and experiential filters. All students maintain their own unique literacy experiences, most of which are directly associated with their culture and all of which have been interpreted according to their “cultural values/traditions, communication, learning styles, contributions, and relational patterns” (Gay, 2002) as cited by Stephens (2012). Furthermore, he added that explicit knowledge about cultural diversity is imperative to meeting the educational needs of ethnically diverse students.

Advantages and Disadvantages of Pursing an Mba

...and Disadvantages of Pursuing an MBA Advantages and Disadvantages of Pursing an MBA The decision to pursue a Master’s in Business Administration is a difficult, personal decision. In fact, I categorize it as a life changing decision. For instance, this decision is like most major decisions people make. Whether the decision is over buying a home, changing careers, starting a family or buying that dream car, it is usually laced with advantages and disadvantages, pros and cons, and benefits and consequences. Whether or not those advantages and disadvantages are tangible, quantifiable and measurable, most would agree that they exist and they sometimes have life changing affects. For example, some people think that it is a disadvantage to buy a home because it usually results in one securing a long-term loan whereby a monetary commitment is required from the borrower or homeowner. If this commitment is broken or one is unable to pay as agreed, the borrower or homeowner can lose valuable assets, seriously hinder their ability to borrow money in the future and be looked upon by the banking and financial community as a liability or risk. On the other hand, or some of the advantages of buying a home may result in credit worthiness, proves that you are trustworthy, disciplined and according to Weintrub (2010), “gives one a sense of pride in ownership, stability and security” (para. 2.). With the above mention in mind, I will explore my personal advantages and disadvantages......

Therefore, when the Chinese exchange rate increased, the demand of Chinese product for American companies and residents will be reduced, because the Chinese exchange rate increase, the cost of Chinese products will be increased at the same time, so they have to expend more dollars for Chinese products. The competition of Chinese products will be decreased in American market. For example, the price of one Chinese phone is 100 RMB that be exported to America with 8.264 exchange rate, so the price of this phone in America is $12.1. However, if the exchange increased to 7.0, and the price of this phone is $14.2. According to increase Chinese exchange rate, USA can reduce imports from China and this can be as a Non-tariff barriers. In addition, with the increase of Chinese exchange rate, China will import more products from USA, duo to the lower cost. Therefore, USA want to increase Chinese Exchange not only reduce the export of China, also increase the amount of export to China.

Disadvantage of Technology

... Disadvantages of technology Today, we can’t imagine ourselves without technological advances such as cars, microwaves, cell phones, computers, and televisions. However, technology won’t stop here, but develop further. As technology develops, there are not only advantages, but disadvantages from them. A few advantages of upgraded technology are that one can save time and money and life will be made easier as a result of not having to do all the hard labor. In contrast, the disadvantages of upgraded technology are that people will loose their jobs to machines that will do the work for them. In addition, machines and robots are too complex for most people to use. I personally would want a developed world with advanced technologies. The following are the reasons why I do want a more advanced world with advanced technologies. My major reason is because when you have advanced technologies, life is much easier as robots and machines would take over your daily life chores. For example, daily life chores might be serving your breakfast, cutting your lawn, or cleaning your room. With robots and machines doing one’s chores one has time to relax. Another reason is because unlike humans, robots and machines do not make mistakes when programmed correctly. They always accomplish tasks perfectly so you won’t have to worry about making a mistake and getting trouble. Other reasons why I want advanced technologies are because they save a great deal of time and money. For example, if you are...

See Dooley, Folkerts-Landau and Garber (2003). 10 This created the temptation to use returns on other assets to model the behavior of new ones; for example, the rating agencies used their accumulated data and modeling experience in rating corporate bond defaults to predict defaults on complex derivative securities backed by mortgages. See Mason and Rosner (2007). 11 Here we academics have something to answer insofar as we trained our students and encouraged our consultancy customers to take our models literally. 12 The problem was not merely the truncated and unrepresentative nature of the sample but also misspecification of the model itself (specifically, the tendency to attach unrealistically low probabilities to extreme outcomes, also known as “tail risk”). Why this was a problem is a topic for another day. One explanation would focus on the limitations of the underlying theory. Another would emphasize incentive problems within the banks constructing their models (specifically, the incentive for staff to understate tail risk in order to minimize the capital that had to be put aside by management –......
