PROPER WAY TO WRITE COURSE WORK FOR STUDENTS


Writing thesis is a mandatory task that probably any person faces. If you deal with it rightfully, the mark will be high and satisfactory. When a student meets the challenge, one doesn’t know how to start. By and large, it is not fatal but usually painful.

Correctly organized course paper is a guarantee of success. When you are familiar with the procedure and topic, all things go along. The ability to organize yourself is not an easy thing. How to fight with your own laziness and write a course work on time?
What have I faced?

The most difficult task for me as for student is to start. I have to spend lots of hours motivating myself before writing a page. Sounds familiar, isn’t it? If you are not productive, the work will never be done on time. Afterward, you never meet the deadline and try to solve the issue at the last night.

Any project demands self-organization and patience. However, appreciation of the topic is not an exception. When you don’t understand what it is, a miracle will not happen. The potential obstacle for writing is incomprehension.
Referring to my previous experience, the lack of motivation is the biggest problem. How not to put off to tomorrow?


What is the solution to all challenges?

⦁ Read the guidance on course work writing. These gold mines of tips and hints are able to simplify the procedure. When you are aware of the principal points, there are no difficulties to deal with. By and large, assess information critically and highlight the significant one.

⦁ Organize your personal space. When everything is clean and in the correct place, your brain works better. Don’t be lazy and clean up the mess. This is the best gift you can give to yourself. Ventilate the space and let the fresh air to come in. Your thoughts will be balanced and clear.

⦁ Check out the most popular topics and select the most suitable one. The bad theme is the stumbling block on your course paper. When you have no idea what about the thesis is, you will not be satisfied with the results. If you don’t know which one to choose, consult with your teacher or professor.

⦁ Use the carrot. The majority of students cannot motivate themselves on writing. To do this, find out what encourages you the most. Sweets, games or little journey perfectly suit the purpose. For instance, when you’ll do a certain number of pages, use the carrot. Throw a party for one person with a table of sweets. Don’t be greedy with your praise.

⦁ Divide the course paper size into parts. After the period of laziness, there is the night of hard work. You are jacked up on juice, and the procedure can be disgusting. The amount of work which can be done in two weeks should be solved at one night. You should divide the paper into several parts and deal with it gradually.

⦁ Keep an eye on the atmosphere. Select a quiet and illuminated place. This will not hurt your eyesight and ruin health. The room should be comfortable for you. If conditions are not convenient, it will be harder to concentrate.


Parting words

With this guidance, you will simplify the procedure of writing a course paper. If you follow this one, it is easier to organize the space and to do the job. Scribe notes and a previous version of a thesis. This step is responsible for the successful result.

You should not be afraid to make mistakes. If you pretend to be perfect, you will never achieve the desired peaks. All of the powerful players have mistaken more than once. However, if you have no desire to write, there is always a hint. Order a paper on PapersOwl.

GLEN CAMPBELL DIED YESTERDAY


Glen Campbell finally succumbed to Alzheimer's disease yesterday. It was announced about 17 hours ago. Poor Glen, his last years were a tragic struggle for dignity, but now he is free.

John Wayne Kim Darby and Glen in True Grit

Glen was one of my very very favorite performers throughout my entire life. I loved his TV show when I was a kid and of course he was so good in the John Wayne movie TRUE GRIT. The theme song from TG is still so beautiful..


A rep for Universal Music Group, Campbell's record label, confirmed the singer's death to Rolling Stone. During a career that spanned six decades, Campbell sold over 45 million records. In 1968, one of his biggest years, he outsold the Beatles.


Glen had so many gorgeous songs...Witchita Lineman stands tall to this day.. As will Glen Campbell's talent and legend. He was loved by his peers, friends, family and his legions of fans around the globe. RIP

LOUIS ARMSTRONG’S THE COMPLETE DECCA SINGLES 1935-1946



LOS ANGELES – AUGUST 4, 2017 – In celebration of the late, great Louis Armstrong’s 116th birthday today, Verve Records/UMe have released the digital collection, The Complete Decca Singles 1935-1946.

Bringing together every single and B-side Pops released during his first decade on Decca Records. Totaling 136 tracks – with many available digitally for the first time – the comprehensive collection is now on all digital retailers and streaming services just as the annual music extravaganza Satchmo SummerFest gets underway in New Orleans’ historic French Quarter for three days and nights of contemporary and traditional jazz in honor of the legendary trumpet player and singer.

The Complete Decca Singles 1935-1946 is available here:


A prequel to The Complete Decca Singles 1949-1958 issued at the end of 2016, the new collection is comprised of six digital volumes with the tracks (A-side/B-side) in chronological order by original release date. Representing an overview of Armstrong’s highly prolific period recording for Decca Records, The Complete Decca Singles illuminates a time when Satchmo was developing a clear vocal and scatting style and and his trumpet playing was second to none.
Of note, three-quarters of this collection has been properly pitch-corrected for the first time ever, a cause for joy for practicing trumpet players (and singers) all over the world.


Upon signing to the recently formed U.S. Decca label in 1935, Armstrong quickly scored a hit with “I’m in the Mood for Love” and it’s that song that appropriately begins the sprawling set. Many of his other hits are represented throughout including, “When The Saints Go Marching In,” “Public Melody Number One,” “Swing That Music,” and “Struttin’ With Some Barbecue,” as well as several notable collaborations like Armstrong and Ella Fitzgerald’s first-ever duets, “You Won't Be Satisfied (Until You Break My Heart)” and “The Frim Fram Sauce,” and his duet with Bing Crosby, “Pennies From Heaven,” the title track of the 1936 film they starred in together.



During this fertile decade, Armstrong recorded in a wide variety of settings, including big bands, small ensembles and pairings with the likes of Jimmy Dorsey and the Mills Brothers, and the material here encapsulates this creative wanderlust and evolution. The songs range from early jazz, big band swing, ragtime and Dixieland, to the novelty Polynesian sounds of the day and even spoken word. Regardless of genre, it’s Armstrong’s remarkable trumpet playing and trademark gravelly tenor that are always front and center, making these songs unmistakably the work of the one and only, Louis Armstrong.

NARCOS: SEASON 3 PREMIERES ON NETFLIX SEPTEMBER 1

Pedro Pascal aka Javier Peña   Kenneth Nguyen Photography

I just loved Narcos season 1 and 2 insanely! Here is a bit of information for the Narcos fans out there!

In Season 3, DEA agent Javier Peña (Pedro Pascal) turns his attention to the Cali Cartel. “Led by four powerful godfathers, this cartel operates much differently than Escobar’s, preferring to bribe government officials and keep its violent actions out of the headlines,” the official logline reads.

Halt and Catch Fire‘s Kerry Bishé joins the cast for Season 3 as Christina Jurado, wife to cartel money launderer Franklin Jurado (played by Sense8‘s Miguel Angel Silvestre).
