TRANSCRIPT

Hello. Do you know how to write a basic paragraph? This is not only for ESL students. This is for everyone around the world, even if you speak English, even if you don’t speak English. This is a very, very beautiful, basic lesson on how to write small, short, beautiful paragraphs. “How to Write a Basic Paragraph”. Now, I also want you to be very careful. This is not how to write a 200-word essay for your university exam. We don’t have enough time in the world for me to teach you that, and I probably forget. So this is, very simply, how to write a basic English paragraph. One, two, three, four rules.

Rule No. 1 is: Indent, indent. What does “indent” mean? Indent, basically, means — I learned this when I was a child — you take your finger. You can have a big finger, a small finger — I don’t care. You take your finger or two fingers, and you make a little space like so. This is called an “indentation” or “indent”. So “indent” means you leave a space at the very first line of the paragraph. And that’s it. You do not leave a space at any other lines in the paragraph, only the first line. So it’s very important that you only indent the first line of your paragraph like so.

Okay. The next thing that you have to do is you have to use a capital letter at the beginning of every sentence. Now, the word that I’ve written is “I”. Another rule in English is that every single time you write “I”, it must be a capital. So I’m going to write an example sentence for you to illustrate what I mean: “I am a teacher.” Okay? This is one sentence.

So rule No. 3: At the end of my sentence, I must use a period. A “period” is a dot, if you’d like. So “I am a teacher.” So what I’m going to do is my next sentence… I’m going to begin it with a capital letter. “My” — so I want to say, “My name — My name is Ronnie.” So what I’ve done: Rule No. 1, indent. Rule No. 2, you have to use a capital letter at the beginning of every new sentence. Rule No. 3, you’re going to use a period at the end of each sentence so that the person reading your beautiful paragraph knows when to stop and take a break. For example, if I did not have a period here, I’d say, “I’m a teacher my name is Ronnie.” You need to break up your ideas. So one sentence has one thought and one period. “I am a teacher. My name is Ronnie.”

Next one. No. 4. I see this in a lot of students’ writing. The two basic things about a paragraph are the form and the content. The form is the most important. The form is the indentation. And don’t use point form. Do you know what “point form” is? If you’re typing something on Word or on an email, “point form” is also called “bullets”, which [makes shooting sounds]. So “bullet” means you would put each new sentence on a new line. So if I was to write this: “I’m a teacher”, then I would put my next sentence here. This is not how to make a paragraph. This is “point form”. So this is a bad paragraph. What I’m going to do is I’m going to write until I almost reach the end of the page. Don’t write past the end of the page because then you’re writing on the desk and it gets messy. So “I am a teacher. My name is Ronnie. I live — so I’m going to use up all of my line until the end — I live in Canada.” What would you like to know about Canada? “Canada is very cold.” In the winter. So as you can see by my example, I only stop my sentence at the end of my paper. I don’t use each sentence on each line.

So four basic things to remember when you’re writing a basic English paragraph. The first one is: Indent the first line of your paragraph only. Use a capital letter at the beginning of each new line or each new sentence. And use a period at the end. Also, don’t forget: Don’t use point form. “I am a teacher. My name is Ronnie. I live in Canada. Canada is very cold. Go to ‘Subscribe’ on YouTube so you can find more great lessons like this.” Goodbye.

Join Always in our epic battle to keep girls’ confidence high during puberty and beyond. Using #LikeAGirl as an insult is a hard knock against any adolescent girl. And since the rest of puberty’s really no picnic either, it’s easy to see what a huge impact it can have on a girl’s self-confidence. Making a start by showing them that doing things #LikeAGirl is an awesome thing!

“In my work as a documentarian, I have witnessed the confidence crisis among girls and the negative impact of stereotypes first-hand,” said Lauren Greenfield, filmmaker and director of the #LikeAGirl video. “When the words ‘like a girl’ are used to mean something bad, it is profoundly disempowering. I am proud to partner with Always to shed light on how this simple phrase can have a significant and long-lasting impact on girls and women. I am excited to be a part of the movement to redefine ‘like a girl’ into a positive affirmation.”

So tell us… what do YOU do #LikeAGirl?

For the past 30 years, Always has been empowering girls globally, bringing puberty education to millions of adolescent girls.

The Effect of Physical Height on Workplace Success and Income

“In this article, the authors propose a theoretical model of the relationship between physical height and career success. We then test several linkages in the model based on a meta-analysis of the literature, with results indicating that physical height is significantly related to measures of social esteem.”

“Although its effectiveness in enhancing physical performance is still unproved, the compound is likely used for its potential anabolic effect on the muscle growth, and also in combination with other products.”

Description:
Athletic prowess doesn’t come in any one particular shape, size or form. Elite athletes boast specific, sport-suited skills which enable them to reign supreme in their chosen athletic endeavor. Sprinters require quick-twitch muscles and powerful legs that can propel them to top speeds, basketball players benefit from being tall and boasting major leaping ability and, yes, even professional eaters like Joey Chestnut must be able to jam an endless stream of hot dogs down their gullet.

The point here is that every sport draws athletes who carry a skill set that helps them thrive within it. Sometimes, though, an athlete needs to look beyond the popular, mainstream options available on the sports landscape and find things that are a little more fringe in nature. Since a sport can essentially consist of anything involving even level competition between two or more parties, we are constantly brainstorming, conceptualizing and inventing new, quirky sporting endeavors. That dedication to innovation has produced inspired new athletic pursuits like snowboarding, but has also borne some head-scratching, hare-brained options as well.

Sport is defined as “an activity involving physical exertion and skill in which an individual or team competes against another or others for entertainment.” Although these athletic pursuits are being labeled as sports, they don’t exactly fit the bill as far as that definition is concerned. Physical exertion? Rock, paper, scissors isn’t likely to make any body parts, short of maybe a fist, work up a sweat. Entertainment? Try telling that to the husband and wife pairings involved in the Wife Carrying Championships, who are interlocked as they navigate a rough, bumpy terrain.

To be fair, let’s take a moment to acknowledge that, on the surface, just about any sport can seem awfully ludicrous. Football is essentially a game in which burly, 300-pound men battle over possession of a piece of oblong-shaped pigskin. Golf amounts to little more than an agonizing attempt to use a stick to move a small white ball closer and closer to a hole situated hundreds of yards away. Of course, we’re all prejudicially geared towards our own sports preferences. The only ‘true sports’ are the ones that we grow up following, with all others being pale imitations.

Still, though, some activities that loosely fit within the broad category of sport can merit shakes of the head on their name, alone. Dwarf Tossing and Solo Synchronized Swimming stand as two of the more perplexing entries on the list, the former for its cruel and juvenile nature and the latter for its remarkable ability to be both moronic and oxymoronic. Beyond the names, these 10 sports are either unsafe, insensitive, poorly conceived or the product of some alcohol-induced stupidity. Or all of the above.

Even the most die-hard sports fan would find these supposed sports to be a little half-baked. Here are the 10 dumbest sports ever conceived.
