Most people think they are good writers. Writing a research paper is not as easy as it would seem to be from the outlook. There are steps involved in the process that many would probably overlook. In the next few paragraphs, I will explain the necessities for a well thought research paper. The first step is doing the prewriting and drafting. Before even thinking about writing, a topic should be in mind. The writer should create a thesis statement explaining what the purpose of the whole paper will be. Next, the writer should go out and find some relevant sources. The sources should be recorded either on bibliography cards or on regular paper. The writer should skim the sources and take notes on the topics that relate to the subject itself. The next part is drafting. The writer should develop a solid outline covering all the information. All of the sources should be used in the paper. To cite the source being used, parenthetical documentation is necessary. To be able to use it, all of the sources should be written down on one page. Drafting is one of the most complicated steps in the whole research paper. The next step involved is revising and editing the paper. Revising a research paper includes checking the content, clarity, and organization of the paper. The writer must make sure that the content isn't badly stated or written. The clarity of the paper is how easy it can be read. The writer must also make certain that the paragraphs follow the outline. The sentences can not be out of place. The next step is editing the paper. If a paper isn't edited well, it can cause the writer major points. Things that should be checked are spelling, capitalization, punctuation, sentence structure, subject and verb agreement, and...

For me writing anything is a worthwhile and helpful goal. During my junior year in high school, I was required to write a research paper for my extremely boring history class. We were giving the freedom to choose our topic but not the option to omit the assignment, like I would have loved to do. Using this freedom I opted to do a research paper on Three Mile Island. I assumed this would be an easy and interesting topic to research due to my previous knowledge and the close proximity of the nuclear power plant. In all honesty, I lacked the motivation to write such a long and useless research paper. At the time I was unable to see the benefits of writing what I thought to be a worthless research paper. My preconception of the research paper was a paper filled with random facts from many different books. As I followed the guidelines my teacher provided for me, I quickly realized the inaccuracy in my preconceptions. During the writing process I became aware of how difficult it can be to combine many similar facts into my own words. It was also difficult selecting important information from the vast amounts that I found during my research. At the time this assignment appeared to be nothing more than busy work. After many long hours, a six-page research paper, and some sincere reflection, I have concluded that the assignment was beneficial. Through writing the paper I learned many new interesting facts. I also improved my writing skills while enhancing my knowledge....

Problem Definition In this case, GM took the strategy called "shotgun" that implements a high information technology and had spent a lot of money on information technology, but it was not centralized and standardized to reach every department and employee of the company. In other words, the information system was not linked together and standardized, which kept information from the employeesso they were unable to make efficient and effective decisions. One of the symptoms that GM faced in the process of producing a product was that the employee was not educated with the system, which led them to make the same mistakes over and over. Also, the design engineer was not aware of the manufacturing environment, so they could not design a product properly to fit to the automated robot assembly system and reduce the work force to make product more efficiently and reduce the cost. Chrysler took the strategy call "rifle" approach, which saved the company from bankruptcy. Chrysler did not have the funds to implement the high technology through out the entire company, but they invested funds in high technology, which was where they were needed most, and created a fast return. It is clear that Chrysler's strategy is different than GM: Chrysler's information system is linked and centralized so it is utilized well by employees and other stakeholders such as suppliers. Due to this effort, Chrysler had improved in productivity and efficiency, but quality and productivity was not enough to compete with oversea competitors like Japanese automakers. Also Chrysler merged with Daimler Benz which is a German high-end automobile maker. Daimler Chrysler is now facing the challenge of combining two different cultures to use the information system to benefit both companies. Justification for Problem Definition GM is the biggest auto maker in the industry and has five different, separate operating groups...

Last spring semester, I wrote a sixteen-page research paper. My teacher, Mrs. Darlene, had given us a few topics to choose from and allowed us two months to finish it. The topic I had chosen was about hair color because I am in a cosmetology program. I was nervous and scared when I heard her say that we had to do the research paper and turn it in on 11 May because I had never done a research before. After she told us about the research paper, I went home and thought about it every day. A week later, when school started, I decided to do my project in a group with my friend; we were allowed to do so. Unfortunately, that girlfriend didn't know English very well and had never taken any English classes, so she begged me to help and do it all for her. If there are two people in a group, each person has to do eight pages. Every day I went on the internet and to library to look for the information about hair coloring, but I couldn't find much information. I stared to get mad at myself and complained to my friend that she should help me. I was very disappointed in myself because I thought I could handle it. I decided to give up, and didn't care to think about it. When there was one week left to turn the research papers in, my partner suddenly mentioned it. it was that she reminded me; otherwise, I would have forgotten. I rushed and tried my best to seek the information, but still couldn't find any. I was worried about how to get started. I knew I couldn't be lazy anymore; I said to myself, "Lan, you have to finish it soon; otherwise you will get a...

Catherine Earnshaw changes along the course of the novel, from a wild, unkempt girl to a delicate proper lady. These changes began when Heathcliff and Catherine sneak over to Thrushcross Grange, and Catherine is bit by a dog. She ends up staying with the Linton's at the Grange for a period of five weeks. Catherine Earnshaw's character at the beginning of the novel is a mischievous, energetic, and tom-boyish. On her return, the inhabitants of Wuthering Heights are all surprised at Catherine's new eloquent appearance and manor. She is now "quite a beauty" as her brother Hindely states at the beginning of chapter seven. He also compliments her on looking and acting as a lady. On Catherine's arrival, Frances, Hindley's wife orders Ellen to help Miss Catherine off with her things, so none of her eloquence is disturbed. This alteration in Catherine's character is very significant to the story. In becoming a proper lady with upper class values, she will not marry someone as improper as Heathcliff. When Catherine chooses not to marry Heathcliff, she begins his manor of cruelty and revengeful attitude towards the world. And so wuthering heights is a good book. i really didn't like but if an english teacher ask you then you tell her yes you loved it. and now im just typing random stuff to make it long enough because this isn't my paper, it's my friends and he doesn't even know how to write a paper over two hundred and fifty words. And yet i find myself still searching for words to put in because it is still to short. I shall now qoute the great peter griffin. "Holy Crip, he's a crapple!" ah yes, what a genius. And of course you could never forget the son stewie's , "Oh i feel so...

I begin before the beginning. A paper must be written and papers always need to be introduced before they really begin. The first few paragraphs exist only to set up the real beginning where all the ideas that must be conveyed exist. The introduction is like the bread that presents the sandwich. Without an introduction this paper would be too messy; the meat of the sandwich would get all over the place. As I look down at all my sociology notes taken throughout the year, I familiarize the topic to myself once again. My mind thinks out-loud: I must write about my future career and the inevitable problems I will face; I must discover some of the unintentional consequences and relate them to what I have learned over the semester. As I ponder this topic, I soon realize that it may be more difficult than I expected. You see, I have no clue what type of sandwich I want; maybe a turkey and cheese, or a BLT, or maybe just a traditional. I'm in my second year at UH and have still not declared a major nor due I have any idea of an intended major, so how am I going to write a paper about my future career. I can barely look toward the future within college much less after college. I understand that no one really knows for sure what they will be doing in their future career. If they did end up perfectly in the career they had planned on submitting themselves to, I believe that they were too close-minded. They probably did not consider the twists and the problems that society gave them on their way. The last sentence that I just wrote caused me to realize that maybe I'm missing the idea of the paper.

"Water Lilies" a painting by Claude Monet Claude Monet's painting are among the most well known and enjoyed works of art. On display at the Atkins-Nelson art gallery is one of Monet's painting titled "Water lilies", which is one of the forty eight painting of the pond. Many of Monet's art work was done in his studio, at his home, with his landscape being the subject. Monet was born in Paris in1840 and moved to Le Havre when he was a child. It was there where he produced his first paintings. Monet traveled regularly between the coast and the city of Paris in order to study, paint and exhibit with other artists. It was in Monet's back yard that the series of forty eight canvases known as "Water lilies" was painted. In his paintings he concentrated on the enlarged pond with its floating pads and blossoms set in many clusters against the reflections of trees and the sky. The lily pads and blossoms are softly and gently implied rather then clear. Blurred in such a way to leave yourself to imagine, and to see the beauty that welds them all together. When evaluating this painting keeping in mind only the painting itself (formal criticism). I would have to say it is a good painting, very interesting in the way light, shadows, and reflection are produced in this painting. Evaluating with contextual criticism, my opinion would still be the same, keeping in mind the other forty seven "Water lilies" painting I have seen in books makes the painting even more interesting, even more beautiful. I enjoy nature paintings, especially with water, such as ponds, and streams. I believe that in this particular painting time period would not matter as much, nature relatively stays the same. Monet's palette tended warm and cool colors . The painting "Water Lilies" had more pastel light colors, such as greens, pinks, grays, blues, and violet. Monet has a very distinctive...
