lecture:
Capitalizing proper nouns
Rules:
Capitalize the titles of
high
-
ranking government
officials when used with or
before their names. Do not
capitalize the civil title if it is
used instead of the name
.
Examples
:
The president will address Congress
.
All senators are expected to attend
.
The governors, lieutenant governors,
and attorneys general called for a
special task force
.
Governor Connelly, Lieutenant
Governor Martinez, and Senators
James and Hennessy will attend the
meeting.
Capitalize a title when used
as a direct address even
whe
n the person is not
named.
Examples
:
Will you be holding a press
conference, Madame President
?
Please give us your opinion of this
latest development, Senator
.
We need your response quickly, Mr.
President
.
We need your response quickly,
President Obama
.
Will you help me with my homework,
Dad?
When
you use the
complete names of
departments, capitalize. You
may also capitalize a
shortened form of a
department. Do not
capitalize when these words
are used as adjectives or
Examples
:
the United Nations General
Assembl
y
the General Assembl
y
Congres
s
a congressional committe
e
generically.
Capitalize civil titles only
when used with the name
following or when
addressing someone
direct
ly
.
Examples:
Councilman James Harri
s
the councilma
n
James Harris, councilma
n
How are you voting, Councilman
?
President Obam
a
the president
If you are working on
government documents or
you are representing a
government agency, then
you may capitalize w
ords
like
City, Count
y
,
and
District
when they stand
alone
.
Example
:
The County will implement
the plan approved by the voters last
June.
When you refer back to a
proper noun using a
shortened version of the
original name, you may
capitalize it.
Exampl
es
:
The District Water Plan allocates ...
The Plan calls for
...
The Federal Bureau of Investigation
has taken the case. The Bureau has
sent out a bulletin to other federal
departments to enlist their help in
capturing the fugitive.
However, if you are not
w
orking on government
documents or are not
representing a government
agency, do not capitalize
generic or shortened terms
.
Examples
:
The county will implement the plan
...
The plan calls for

Capitalization, part one of three
Rule 1.
A full sentence is always ca
pitalized, whether it is in quotes or in
parentheses.
i.e.: The judge said, “This is my verdict.”
quoting a sentence within a
sentence, capitalize the sentence:
She asked, “
What time will you be home?”
partial quotes: no capitalizing:
He asked about the “best practices” for tests.
capitalize sentences in parentheses
He was fired for incompetence. (He lost the
company a lot of money.)
Notice where this period goes:
Full sen
tence: inside the paren...
no caps for non
-
sentences:
He was fired for incompetence (and lost the
company a lot of money).
Notice where the period goes
now:
Non
-
sentence:
out

Reading Comprehension
: What is
fact
, and how can opinion be
distinguished from fact in writing? Would making a Mind Map help you spot the differences,
and would making an outline help to organize your possible choices?
The
great
period of European travel from the latter half of the fifteenth through the
sixteenth century is generally referred to as the Age of Exploration. Was it really great?
Christopher Columbus (1451–1506), find the "New World” for the Spanish monarchs, Isabella I
of Castile (r. 1474–1504) and Ferdinand II of Aragon (r. 1479–1516). The first English voyage
around the world was made by Sir Francis Drake (ca. 1540–1596), who claim the San Francisco
Bay for Queen Elizabeth; Vasco da Gama’s (ca. 1460–1524) sail to India and led the exploration
of the west coast of Africa; Bartolomeu Dias’ (ca. 1450–1500) discover the Cape of Good Hope;
and Ferdinand Magellan’s (1480–1521) find a route through the Americas to the east, which led
to European discovery of the passage known today as the Strait of Magellan.

Topic: Plural
Pronoun-antecedent agreement
An
antecedent
stands for an earlier pronoun. (
ante
= "before").
The pronoun
must agree with its antecedent in number.
A singular pronoun must replace a singular noun, and
a plural pronoun must replace a plural noun.
(We are continuing with plural pronouns from yesterday...)
i.e.:

7:15
Mathematics Topic:
Ratios and Proportions
:
How far have we sailed?!
Why would we want to know how to divide one day into portions?
“ Because one day is 24 hours long one can easily use time to
calculate longitude. One hour of time difference corresponds to 15° of longitude
(360°” longitude per 24 hours is “15°/hour). Suppose an observer sets his
accurate watch to 12:00 at noon in Greenwich, England and then travels a great
distance. The observer then notices that the sun is highest in the sky at 4:00
according his watch. The observer then knows he is at longitude 60° W (4 hours
×15°/hour = 60°).
(from http://astro.unl.edu/naap/motion1/tc_finding.html...)
Grammar aside: What preposition is missing in the second to last sentence?
A ratio is, for example, 1 part rice to 2 parts water
(1to 2, or 1:2 or 1/2)
.
Now we are using degrees in longitude to hours traveled as a ratio.
What shape is the earth, and how do we measure distance for that shape?
How do we confirm that the sun appears to travels 15 degrees in one hour?
What does having the equivalent value in hours allow us to do?
(It’s the topic of this
paragraph!)
What proportion of the earth does the sun travel in one hour?
What makes a percent a ratio?
For example, %50 of one’s income goes to rent; & the other half?
Now, let’s do the first question together from our online Grammar worksheet: http://depts.dyc.edu/learningcenter/
owl/exercises/agreement_pa_ex1.htm
And let’s do the first problem from our Ratios practice together
(you may also do the easier ratios introductory review on Khan

: What is

, and how can opinion be

Today’s Passage is from an interview about the Middle Ages in the Islamic World.
“Tell me about medieval Islamic civilization. Wasn’t there a flowering in the 9th and
10th centuries?
SM: Actually,
Islam’s “golden age”
goes
much longer, from the 9th to the 14th centuries
—and
it
moves around, from Baghdad to Damascus to Cairo. Within that time, there were golden
ages of mathematics and astronomy and medicine, with many advances.” One examples: A
physician named Ibm al-Nafis, who lives in the 13th century in Cairo, was the first person to
describe the pulmonary circulation of blood—four centuries before the Europeans discovered
that.
The main accomplishment was
when, on a large scale, Muslims began to creatively engaged
with the science and philosophy of the classical Greco-Roman-Byzantine tradition—and began
to rethink those ideas. For pretty much the whole apparatus of science, mathematics and logic,
Muslim scholars, along with others based in the Muslim world, provided corrections to the
Greco-Roman tradition. The place-holder 0, which allows the decimal system to function, was
introduced during this period.
(Today’s reading comes from https://www.history.com/news/why-muslims-see-the-crusades-so-
differently-from-christians...)

Let’
s read this passage together. Look for some grammatical errors as we read:
When a new historical epoch
emerge
s, it
are
likely to be painful
and prolonged. Our own century appears to be such a time; our
discomforts come partly from
living through change
.
This should
give
us
some understanding of the people of fourteenth
-
and fifteenth
-
century
Europe, who also lived in an age of crisis and change. The distresses of
the time resulted largely from the resistance to change. The changes were
hastened by the
Bl
ack Death.
It started in 1348 and swept through
western Europe. Some areas were
little affected
by it, but where it did
strike it
was the worst event in memory
.
Statistics
is
not available for
this period, but there
is
places where as much as a third
of the population
died.
(Villages lost 40 out of 160, or even up to 100 out of 300
inhabitants!)
The poor city workers, crowded together in unsanitary
conditions, suffered the
most great
number of casualties. The well

theme
? How can you find the theme of a piece of writing?
“In 1095, Pope Urban II issued a call for a “holy war,” a Crusade, to conquer and control
the Holy Land. Over the next 200 years, many Crusades were launched. The goal of these
military actions was to recover Jerusalem and the Holy Land from the Muslim Turks.”
(Today’s
reading comes from P. 280 in Peterson’s Master the HiSET, 2nd Edition...)
A theme is an idea that is not directly expressed, but that the author wishes the reader to
think about while reading a piece of writing.
What is the theme of this paragraph?
(True, theme is more for fiction writing, but non-fiction can
also have underlying ideas, or themes.)
Why do you think so?

lecture:
Fewer vs. Less,
Less
is used with things/material that cannot be counted or separated into individual
parts.
You can not count orange juice, sunshine, sand etc. (although you can count pints of orange juice, hours of
sunshine, grains of sand etc.)
I would like less custard please. (Custard is not countable)
You get less jam in a smaller jar. (Jam is not countable)
There is a lot less rain in the Greek islands than in Britain. (Rain is not countable)
Once I heard what happened, I had far less sympathy with her. (Sympathy is not countable)
Fewer
is used with discrete things that can be separated or counted.
CDs, sausages, cows, people, etc. can be counted.
If only there were fewer people in this bus. (People are individual, countable things)
He decided he should buy fewer CDs. (CDs are individual, countable things)

2.
Exponents
3.
Multiplication
4.
Division
5.
Addition
6.

Reading Comp.
: What is a topic, or subject, of a piece? How can you find the topic or
subject of a paragraph? Would making an list help to organize and eliminate your possible
choices?
“From 500 to 1500 CE, the world's most powerful societies were non-European
imperial
states
. China’s Tang dynasty, the Byzantine Empire, and the Mongol empires controlled much of
the known world. During the Tang and Song dynasties, from about 600 CE to 1300CE, China
grew in population, trade, wealth, new ideas, and artistic achievements.” China had become the
world’s most advanced country.
(Today’s reading comes from P. 280 in Peterson’s Master the HiSET, 2nd Edition...)

What does it mean to be
central
to something?

What might be the thesis sentence or central claim be for this paragraph?
Grammar
lecture:
Superlatives: good - better - best!
A superlative is a comparative adjective that goes the farthest!
To show that one item is the superlative, that is the greatest within a set group, add
–est
to
an adjective of one or two syllables and use “
most
” for adjectives of three or more syllables.
Also, use “
the
” in the comparison since the item’s superiority makes it a specific noun.
It is
the
long
est
book (that we have read).
It is
the most
complicated formula (that we will learn).
tall, taller, tallest
He is the tallest person in the room.
short, shorter, shortest
I am the shortest person in the room.
good/better/best
bad/worse/worst
I think lentils are good, and beef is better, but
lamb is best!
Drought is bad, floods are worse and fire is
worst of all.

How would we multiply 3/6 by 6/12?
1.)
Simplify the fractions if not in lowest terms.
2.) Multiply the numerators of the fractions to get the new numerator.
3.)
Multiply the denominators to get the new denominator.
4.)
Simplify the resulting fraction if possible.
Let’s solve
4/8 * 4/16 = x
Now solve
3/4 * 66/12 = x

? How can you understand the main idea of a
paragraph? Would making an outline help to organize your possible choices?
From 500 to 1500 CE ... three powerful societies emerged and flourished in West Africa.
These ancient African empires arose in the Sahel, south of the Sahara desert. They grew strong
by controling gold and salt.
(Today’s reading comes from P. 279 in Peterson’s Master the HiSET, 2nd Edition...)
What is the main idea of this paragraph?
Why?
Where are the Sahel, and the Sahara Desert?
Grammar
lecture:
Comparatives, -er/more/less
A comparative is an adjective that compares two things or people:
“All comparative adjectives come from a
base adjective
;” To make a comparative, a
suffix gets added to the end of the adjective. The suffix used depends on five rules:
0.
If the word is a
CVC word (a three-letter word made up of a consonant, vowel, consonant)
,
double the last consonant, and add -er. For example, big becomes bigger, and hot becomes hotter.
1.
If the adjective has only one syllable, add -er to the end, and that creates the comparative
form. For example, dark becomes darker, and small becomes smaller.
2.
If the adjective has two syllables and ends with the letter y, drop the y, and add -ier. For
example, sunny becomes sunnier, and funny becomes funnier.
3.
For adjectives that have
two syllables but don't end in the letter y, use the word more
before
the adjective. For example, orange becomes more orange, and yellow becomes more yellow.
4.
The fourth rule is very similar to the third rule.
If an adjective has three or more syllables,
use the word more
before it. For example, beautiful becomes more beautiful, and incredible
becomes more incredible.
Using Comparative Adjectives in a Sentence
Usually
, a sentence that uses comparative adjectives includes the word
than
.”
(Does
usually
mean
always
?)
tall, taller
He is tall, but she is taller (than he is).
(Note: use subject pronoun with than... p. 57)
short, shorter
I am shorter than most people.
more/less
This recipe calls for more sugar than the other
recipe.
Rice needs less water than lentils to cook.

The Middle Ages, or the Medieval period, are the 1000 years between the ancient
world and the modern world. The early middle ages in Europe
are called the Dark Ages.
Most people were serfs. Serfs were peasants, or farmers, who were not allowed to leave
the place where they were born. The early middle ages, in Europe, were Dark Ages,
indeed.

Mathematics:
Operations with Negative numbers
If you wanted to subtract 10 from 17 (i.e. 17-10=x), but there was no zero, could
you do it?
Remember that 0 (zero) is not a number, but a place holder. It allows us to be
able to add and subtract, and also to tell natural numbers (or counting numbers) from negative
numbers.
Like this: {..., -3, -2, -1, 0, 1, 2, 3...}
The entire set of negative numbers, 0, and natural numbers is called
Integers
.
An even number is any multiple of 2 (what does that mean?).
So then what is an odd number?
What factor does any even number always have? Why?
As an equation, that looks like
x = 2 * y
, if x is an even number.

The ancient Egyptians lived along the banks of the Nile river. The Nile’s annual flood
cycle
was essential to the development of ancient Egypt. Every year the river flooded the
valley,
enriching the soil with
silt
and
minerals
. The ancient Egypti
ans believed their pharaohs
to be gods who
reigned
even after death, so their
tombs
were very important. The largest
tomb
,
called the Great
Pyramid
, was built in 2530 BCE.

“ -Fuera lo espera un chófer con un coche oficial.

-Gracias.
Prefiero ir en metro. ”

Como el subsecretario Salvador Martí del Ministerio del Tiempo, ojala que habîan màs funcionarios que nos darîan el buen ejemplo de usar los transportes publicos. A menudo, la falta de transporte publico llega hasta faltar las citas medicas y legales, con consequencia de perder los procesos judiciales que no han de perder, si la persona endeudada hubiera podido llegar a la corte para defender sus derechos.

A corto plazo, otros estados de los EEUU podrîan seguir el ejemplo del estado de Maryland, que ha prohibido las acciónes civiles por parte de colectores de deudas ya pasado la fecha limite segûn el tipo de deuda. Mientras tanto, a largo plazo, reconstruimos nuestra estructura economica para crear la igualdad en vez de crear la pobreza. Los dos puntos de vista, corto y largo plazo, nos urge.

 

“ -An official car and choffeur are waiting for you outside
-Thank you.
I prefer to take the Metro.”

Would that more of our public officials, like subsecretary Salvador Marti of The Ministry of Time, set the example of using public transportation. Lack of transportation often leads to default judgement on an expired debt which could have been avoided, had the debtor been able to defend in court.

Over the short-term, states could follow the example of Maryland, and prohibit lawsuits on all expired debts, while also rebuilding our economic structures to create equity rather than poverty, over the long-term. Both short-term and long-term approaches are needed, urgently.

Let’s start to #EndPoverty by improving these four parts of our Public Domain Social Infrastructure, the #PublicDomainInfrastructure 4: (1. #libraries, 2. #ProBono legal aid and Education, 3. #UniversalHealthCare , and 4. good #publictransport )

“ -Ne olacak şimdi peki? ”

Nazlı, Yunanistan’a uygun visa’le olmadan için tutsağı oldu, ama aynı şey bir ABD vatandaşı başına gelebilir…

 

“ -Well, now what’s going to happen? ”

Nazlı is behind bars for arriving in Greece without the proper paperwork, but the same thing can happen to a US citizen in many states for also not having the proper paperwork: debt caused by lack of healthcare, for instance. In both cases, putting a person who has not been convicted of a crime behind bars can result from simply not having enough money to pay medical bills, leading to a worsening spiral of debt which affects us all. The simplest solutions would be to halt the practice of Body Attachment, in the short-term, and enact a Single Payer System of Universal Healthcare in the longer term. The first requires action on a state-by-state basis, at least at the moment. Both short-term and long-term approaches are needed, immediately.

“ -C’est quoi ça?
-Votre côte sur le marché de l’art: 11.000 euros”

Mais si Driss n’avait-t-il pas d’argent ? Et s’ils lui avaient arrêtaient dans la misère ? Aux États-Unis il y à une moyen d’éviter les procès mais qui coute cher, selon l’état dans on aura le procès. C’est mon espoir qu’on peut avoir des changements de cette politique, avec l’aide des citoyens Américains, et aussi ce de nos amis.

 

“ -What’s this?
-That’s what you’re worth on the art market: 11,000 Euros.”

But what about before Driss had that money? What if he’d been arrested utterly poor?

In many states, programs exist to help first time offenders avoid trial and charges. But, Pre-trial Diversion or Intervention programs, as they are known, are often unfair to the poor, as in MD and many other states: perpetrating the cruelty of charging money that some people simply do not have in order to avoid jail. My emphatic immediate-term policy recommendation is that all States emulate “Cook County … in Chicago, where defendants are not charged a fee ” for Pre-Trial service programs. And my long-term policy recommendation is that we strengthen our freely available legal services and Pro-Bono Legal Aide availability drastically, perhaps requiring ALL lawyers and law firms to offer 20% of their time or services free to lower income people, and that states and counties offer free continuing education in financial and consumer education, including the all too rarely taught rights in each state regarding debt, housing, health care and also criminal law. Both short-term and long-term approaches are needed, immediately.

Toward “…justice for all.”
