"Follow these few helpful tips on grammar punctuation to make your writings understandable for the readers and to express the precise expressions you wish to convey."

Hugo Gonzalez's comment, May 5, 2014 9:34 PM
I thought it would be good to know about some of the crucial grammar rules that would be good for any writer to know. It is very helpful to have a bit more energy on avoiding any grammar faults that can change the way your argument appears or sounds. Having a comma at the wrong spot in your argument that you may have posted can change your tone to a weaker standing.

Edgar Allan Poe, Illustrated

Edgar Allan Poe, Illustrated | Reading and Writing | Scoop.it

Literature and the visual arts have fed off of each other for as long as the two have existed. It should be no surprise to anyone reading this that the evocative imagery of the works of Edgar Allan Poe have been complemented with illustrations numerous times in their publication history.

Hugo Gonzalez's insight:

When it comes to writing, reading old literature from these deceases writer really helps.  It may be old but it can teach a writer a thing or two about making a paper more fascinating.  It can create a imagery if the words are visual instead of just spoken.

Using DC power to save energy -- and end the war on currents

Yet, while we live in an “AC world,” we find nearly all of our equipment uses DC within the devices and converting AC to DC or DC to AC results in conversion losses. While the efficiencies of power conversion are dependent on current and voltage, conversion equipment is typically “rated” from 90 to 95 percent can actually be much lower.

An idea to save power and energy is not a bad one. If executed precisely, the plan can save a lot of state money and natural resources in California alone. It is possible to harvest solar power but the mechanisms needed to make it happen are expensive. Lowering the amount of energy used can be beneficial for the power of income that a consumer has if they are saving more on their electricity bill.

Traditional writing and reading have been good for kids to learn but the new slang words that are used have changed the blogs post that people read. New social medias have changed a bit of how people communicate. Teens especially, it used to be more of talking more punctual with good manner and now some tend to have a ghetto tone when speaking.

Using more advanced technology would benefit in the museums.  It would make it more interesting to learn when some of it is visually happening in front of the visitor.  The scopity Rom is an interesting ideal that should be put into more museums.

Healthy sample size of 165 preschoolers although the exact nature of the study seems to be a bit opaque.  In essence - kids who worked with teachers who had intensive music training had significantly better literacy rats than the control group.  Quite what these teachers did is the unclear part but the researchers are using it as a data point in the argument to include more music in early education.

Hugo Gonzalez's comment, May 6, 2014 3:50 AM
It is good to know that linking music between someone studying can actually help them concentrate more. Seems more legitimate to be able to read and listen to a radio station and not lose track of what you are reading. Having the ability to multitask is a very good skill to have when it comes to completing such tasks as reading or writing. Keeps the mind active when it is focused to finish one task.

Dropbox is good to have when saving or turning in any essays or whichever type of literature when it is for college courses. It is very helpful to have if anyone needs to store work for any type of course or job that requires a full written report.
