Despite all these features, the ideal of philantrophy is also present at the expo, The National Cristina Foundation is urging businesses to donate their used equipment to empower people with disabilites communites and non-profits.

For the first time in my Academic Career, plagiarism has knocked on my door. None the less, “Eagle Eye” (a name given to me by a colleague) noticed that the papers were too perfect. Lo and behold, I did a google search and I found them on the web. Talk about the students sending me on a virtual adventure!
The outcome, I failed the student. School policy. In this day and age, professors need to be just as savvy as students.
