Grammar Ain’t No Picnic: Double Negative, No-No

Jan 04, 2017

According to basic mathematics, multiplying two negatives result in a positive. Some people like to think that the same principle applies to grammar. Sadly, they are mistaken. In the English language, double negatives occur when two negative words are used in the same sentence, with the assumption that the overall sentence becomes a positive one. In other languages, double negatives intensify a negation. You’ve probably heard this on television shows, in films, or in music. The following lines may sound a tad familiar.   “I can’t get no satisfaction.”   “Got nothing to hide no more.”   “Ain’t no mountain high enough.” While the above sentences m......

What’s Your Style? The MLA Format

Jan 03, 2017

If you’re aiming for a degree in the humanities, arts, literature, and the like, you may be asked to write a dissertation and have it formatted in MLA style. A style guide is important in keeping work consistent throughout a certain field of study. There are many other style guides, but MLA is used primarily for studies in the humanities. The MLA, which stands for the Modern Language Association, is an organization for professionals and academics in the humanities. They created the MLA Handbook for Writers, a style guide for those writing research papers and journals in the field. The MLA style can also be used for academic and commercial presses. The MLA style provides not only......

Once Upon a Time Season 4: Don’t Tell Me to Let It Go

Dec 31, 2016

The previous season was one wild ride. First, the Wicked Witch of the West decided to come over and take over all of Storybrooke. Not only that, she also attempted to steal Mary Margaret and David’s infant child to raise as her (evil) own. To make matters even more complicated, it’s revealed that she is the daughter of Cora and Regina’s half sister. No wonder she’s so powerful. Next, let’s just talk about Peter Pan for a bit. It sort of makes sense that Peter Pan actually has the whole kidnapping-of-boys operation going on. But Peter Pan being the father of Rumpelstiltskin? We did not see that coming at all. Then there’s this whole side story of Regina looking for her happily......

Margot Lee Shetterly: Shooting for the Moon

Dec 29, 2016

History has proven that women and other minorities must work extra hard to be recognized for their efforts, so much so that the term glass ceiling was coined. The term pertains to an invisible barrier that prevents minorities from advancing in their chosen profession because of bias. Over the years, people belonging to the minority have tried to shatter the glass ceiling out of existence. Margot Lee Shetterly, a researcher and entrepreneur, is the author of Hidden Figures, an account of the first people who have broken through the invisible barrier. The book recently made waves across the world after it was adapted into a film, released late this year. Born in 1969 in Virgi......

Once Upon a Time Season 3: The Plot Thickens

Dec 24, 2016

Just when we thought happily ever after is within reach, someone just has to step in and ruin it all. The original curse may be gone, but Rumpel’s not about to give up the fight. Now that everyone has their memory back, they can’t return to the Enchanted Forest. Plus, anyone who crosses the town line will forget their fairy-tale identity. And because she wanted to protect Rumpelstiltskin, Belle accidentally crosses over the line and forgets who she is. Even worse? Henry is in Neverland after being kidnapped by Greg and Tamara, who are working for Peter Pan (who is apparently evil). Warning:  The main purpose of this post is to serve as a guide when watching the series ......
