Ghostwriter Code of Ethics

Kostenlose Immobilienbewertung

Today, there are many ghostwriters writing essays for college students. These college students are trying to take advantage of the fact that a “ghostwriter” is normally a professional writer that writes something and then gives the client credit. Ghostwriters are also taking advantage of this fact and are trying to profit from it. In this article I am calling all ghostwriters to come together and adhere to a new Code of Ethics rule which states that we should never write essays or anything else for a college student. There are many reasons why we should adhere to this rule.

First, I am a former college student and understand the fact that if a ghostwriter writes an essay for a college student, it will not be fair for the other students who actually spend quality time studying and writing the essay. The ghostwriter could also set the grading curve at a much higher level since we are professional writers and most writers, I would hope, have already gone to college.

Second, it should be against the law in the first place for a ghostwriter to write an essay for a college student because that student is in the process of earning a respectable degree and should actually earn it without the help of a professional writer. I do know that most college professors do mention to the students that if they are caught buying an essay from the internet or from a professional writer that they will fail the essay. This should be the case because the essay would not be written from the student’s actual knowledge of the subject.

The two reasons mentioned above are the two main reasons why ghostwriters should never accept jobs from college students who are requesting a paper to be written that is a graded assignment. Those two reasons should be adhered to by ALL ghostwriters because it is ethically wrong, period! A ghostwriter which does adhere to this rule is The Affordable Ghostwriter who can be reached here: http://theaffordableghostwriter.com. Hopefully more ghostwriters will learn and accept the facts and ethics mentioned herein and adhere to them. If you agree, then please do as I am doing by expressing your opinion and let your voice be heard!

Rabindranath Tagore – My Favourite Author

Kostenlose Immobilienbewertung

The first time I had sung the National Anthem composed by Rabindranath Tagore, the rhythm and the tune touched my heart and magnified the love for Bangladesh. I started reading his short stories and poems, which he created for children gave me real pleasure. His power of simplification and showing the beauty of truth within little things for extensive exemplification for which my inquisitiveness feelings make him my favorite author. The Tagore’s were of a cultured and wealthy family. Rabindranath Tagore was born in 7th May 1861 and died in 7th August 1941. His father, Devendranath, was one of the leaders of the Brahma Samaj. The poet’s early life was spent in an atmosphere of religion and arts, literature, music and paintings. As an author, the trend of his life was early contemplated. He was brought up and taught on three languages- Sanskrit, Bengali and English.

Tagore’s literary life outspread over sixty years, and he reminds one of Victor Hugo in the copiousness and variety of his work: over one thousand poems; nearly two dozen plays and play-lets; eight novels; eight or more volumes of short stories; more than two thousands songs, of which he wrote both the words and the music; and a mass of prose on literary, social, religious, political, and other topics. In addition to his English translations of some of his literary works; his paintings; his travels and lecture-tours in Asia, America, and Europe; and his activities as an educationist, as a social and religious reformer, and as a politician- and there we have, judged by quantity alone, the life work of a Nipple. Suffice it to say that his genius was no more than the capacity for taking infinite pains; but to note the element of steel and concrete that went to his making, and thus to dispose of the legend, that has grown in some quarters in recent years, of Tagore the pale-lily poet of ladies’ table.

In 1901 he founded his school, the Santiniketan, at Bolpur as a protest against the existing evil system of education. The school was a great success and transfigured Viswabharati. On revisiting England in 1911 he brought with him the English Gitanjali, and it’s publication in 1912 and the award of the Nobel Prize for literature the following year made him world-famous. This was the first award of that prize to an Asiatic. The rest of Tagore’s life was spent at Santiniketan, except for several travels and lecture-tours in which he carried his message of human unity to all the important countries of Asia, America and Europe.

Tagore was a proud and ardent patriot. His most intense period of political activity was in the years following 1905, when the agitation against the partition of Bengal was at its highest speed. He renounced his knighthood in 1919 as protest against the Amritsar affair in a letter to the Viceroy, which is among the great documents of freedom. His patriotic poems and songs, particularly the latter, have passed into the common heritage of his country; the song “Bharata-bhagya-vidata” is now sung all over India and “Amar sonar Bangla” in Bangladesh as the national anthem. In this respect I would like to discuss a few of his books which have stirred my heart towards having an unbounded pleasure of spiritual as well as real cultural life.

HOIMONTI

It is a remarkable short story where Tagore has tried to reflect a contrast between the two families comprising of conservatism and modernism. Hoimonti was educated in modern system of education where her father had influenced her by proper knowledge, culture, heritage and means to retaliate the real life situation. But as ill luck would have it, she was married with Opu, a son of conservative family. This family believed in superstitions and social customs. Opu’s father and mother had prejudice, which would influence Hoimonti tremendously. In the last Hoimonti was faded and her father-in-law was looking for another bride for his son.

BOLAI

This story is about a boy who doesn’t have a mother and was brought up by his aunt. He developed the character, which is different from his age group. He has an uncommon fondness towards the plants and trees. Bolai would not tolerate if anybody would weed out any plants and trees. He thought that every plant has a unique life, which is unknown to everybody. He showed all his love and sympathy even for the tree which grew in an unsuitable place. In the last his most favourite tree was cut down when his father took to Shimla for higher studies. Bolai’s aunt was shocked at the demolition of the tree, which she thought was the personification of Bolai.

SHESHER KABITA

It is a famous novel created by Tagore. The actress of the story is Labonno and the actor is Amit. The contrast and love affairs of them have been reflected in a significant manner. The book has the greatest literary value in the world. The real love an affair with high world literature has been vividly reflected here where the two craving personalities are eagerest to know each other. They were devoid of greed, jealousy, allusion and bad temperament and they know how to tackle the social confliction and criticism of social critics.

KABULIWALA

The main characters of this story are a girl named Mini and Rahmat the Kabuliwala. Kabuliwala is from Afghanistan; he sells things from door to door. Once she was introduced to Mini, the talkative girl who was five years old. The man has left his daughter who is of Mini’s age back home. Mini and Kabuliwala developed a very good friendship. Kabuliwala used to bring dry fruits for Mini as present and showed the patience of listening to Mini. They used to tease each other about “going to in-laws house”. For some reason the man has to go to prison for eight years. After coming from jail he wanted to meet Mini. But, at that time Mini’s marriage ceremony was going on. In the past eight years she has forgotten her friend Kabuliwala. She was not friendly like her childhood and was feeling shy seeing him. Kabuliwala could feel the distance the time has passed between them and his daughter.

POSTMASTER

It is a short story by Rabindranath regarding a postmaster. The postmaster was transferred to a village post office of India. Here he met a girl named Ratan with whom he would always continue conversation hours after hours. One day the postmaster fell ill, Ratan has looked after him and in this way a close relationship was developed between them. When the postmaster was transferred to the town again the girl became shocked and she asked him to take her with him but the postmaster was not in a position to take her. Rattan lived with the sheer pain of the lovely memory; she had spent with the postmaster.

I like Rabindranath’s book because I come to learn many things about the land, people and nature. We learn the problems, religion, culture and heritage of Bengali life. His books sometimes really create thrill, intuition and excitement for the readers by reflecting the social conflicts and contrast between conservative and modern educated people. Furthermore, his poetry ingrained in common life has been vividly contemplated in a significant manner, which stir my heart to a great extent.

What Is a Copywriter and What Does a Copywriter Do?

Kostenlose Immobilienbewertung

A copywriter is a person tasked to write the text used for advertisements in magazines, newspapers, television, radio and other kinds of media. A copywriter may also be assigned to come up with the words for press releases, informational or promotional pamphlets, and other promotional materials. A copywriter may also be tasked to rewrite or edit existing materials. Thus, a copywriter’s job is a very flexible and potentially exciting career in the wide world of advertising and marketing.

Where Does a Copywriter Work?

A copywriter usually works in advertising firms, retail stores, and marketing companies in a metropolitan area. The working environment of a copywriter is usually found to be quite hectic, which makes creativity under pressure necessary. Advertising is known to be a very fast-paced field where many crises can suddenly occur. A copywriter is usually pressured by short deadline and successive assignments daily. A copywriter is often asked for several revisions at the last minute. This job is therefore not for the weak-hearted or the unengaged.

How Fulfilling Is a Copywriter’s Job?

Novice and assistant copywriters usually start off with an annual salary of about $30,000 to $35,000 working it up to some $40,000 when they become full-pledged. A senior copywriter may eventually earn some $100,000 a year and about $125,000 if he or she becomes promoted as copywriting chief. A copywriter has the potential to later become creative director and earn as much as $200,000 annually.

A copywriter, like most other workers, is usually required to work 40 hours a week, but it is usually expected to have a lot of overtime in this career. Fortunately overtime is compensated accordingly. A copywriter becomes most busy during key times depending on the nature of their firm’s trade – department store copywriters work most during holiday and sale seasons, advertising copywriters work a lot during big advertising campaigns.

Many copywriters today are privileged with profit-sharing schemes afforded by their company. A copywriter also gets the usual benefits such as paid vacations and holidays, pension plans, health care, hospitalization insurance and life insurance. Copywriting can be quite a rewarding job.

How to Become a Copywriter?

A copywriter is expected to be skilled in coming up with great advertising ideas as well as putting them to paper in a very articulate and effective manner. A copywriter should also have a good grasp of layout and typography because visuals are also very important in advertising.

Most advertising agencies require aspiring copywriters to have a solid background in the field, preferably working for at least three years in the business. Copywriters are of course expected to have obtained a college degree, usually in liberal arts, communications, business management, and marketing. A lot of copywriters take college courses that combine creative writing with marketing and this prepares them well for a good copywriting career.

To get hired as a copywriter, one has to be able to combine a solid formal education with an active writing experience. Most copywriters not only had degrees in communications or business, but they actually wrote while studying whether in school publications or community newsletters. A good idea is to present well-written works such as essays and articles.

Are there Opportunities for Growth for a Copywriter?

There is much room for growth for a copywriter. Copywriters working in department stores can become chief of copywriting or fashion coordinator and work their way to become division manager and even advertising chief. Copywriters working in advertising agencies may be promoted as copy supervisor, advancing to copy chief, and then account executive, and ultimately to creative directorship. A copywriter’s job can indeed be quite fulfilling.

In the growing world of business and advertising a copywriter can find a great home with many opportunities for earning and career expansion. Some people undermine the work of copywriters merely because their job seems to be placed at the bottom of the bureaucracy. However a copywriter with the right determination and skill can definitely work his or her way to the top the way their more business-oriented peers do.

Copywriting can be a very fulfilling career for those who have the right skills for the job. If you are full of bright ideas and know how to write well then you might want to try out becoming a copywriter.

Writers: The Comma

Kostenlose Immobilienbewertung

It is said that 90% of all writers use a comma correctly, 75% of the time, but only 1% of the writers use the comma correctly 99% of the time.  Many of us who write for business are in that top 90%.  The comma is important.  Commas let your writings breath. 

They are the main device by which the grouping of words, phrases, and clauses are set up.  Consequently, commas are misused more than all the other marks combined.

There are only four commas, which hardly seem a lot for such a difficult topic.  Never-the-less, it is the four that get us all in trouble.  The four types of commas are Omission, Bracket, Listing, and the Joiner. 

That was simple.  Now that you know their names, you know how to handle each one – right?  Let’s make sure. 

Let’s start with the Omission Comma. 

Omission

True to its title, the omission comma replaces a missing word, most often “and.”  The rule is – if you cannot put “and” before the word, then you should not use an Omission comma. 

You can change the above sentence simply by adding a “and” before “tedious lecturer”   If you couldn’t put “and” before the word, then the comma is not needed. 

Example:  By removing one word, we render this sentence incorrect.  “As professors go, old man Jerkins is a boring, uninspired, lecturer who will put you to sleep under two minutes.

“And” cannot be put in front of “lecturer,” therefore the use of the comma is incorrect.  To make the sentence read right, we must put a comma before uninspired (it passes the “and” test) and a comma after “lecturer.”  Example: “As professors go, old man Jerkins is a boring, uninspired lecturer, who will put you to sleep under two minutes.

Joining Comma

The joining comma joins independent clauses.  The rule is each part of the sentence has to be able to stand by itself.  Using the example above, we can remove the comma and rewrite the sentence to read:  “As professors go, old man Jerkins is a boring, uninspired, lecturer.  He will put you to sleep under two minutes.  We had to add the subject “He” in order to link the professor back into the second sentence, but even without it, the assumptive subject would have still been the professor. 

Be careful of joining commas, they tend to make run on sentences, they are hard to control, so that you feel like you are running out of breath when reading, like they will never end, never letting you stop long enough, and take one little breath. 

Whew! Do you see what I mean? There are at least two separate sentences in the previous paragraph.  Where would you place the period and start a new sentence?  You could also use our little friend the listing comma to make the above sentence work.  Let’s try it.

Listing Commas

A listing comma is just as the name implies – it puts things in a series or list.  For example:  The attributes that make Joe Jones a good candidate for this position are punctuality, a stickler for details, professional leadership, a dedicated employee, and a inspiring team leader. 

You can’t make these terms stand alone because the subject gets lost, so a “Joining” comma doesn’t work, and the commas are not “Omission” commas because if you put  “and” in replacement of the commas, then the entire sentence becomes awkward and run on.  Try it. 

Two simple rules for listing commas.  Rule 1: You have an option of placing a comma in front of the last item proceeding the “and” in the last item of a list.  It is an option, and correct either way.  The rule is – don’t let anyone chastise you for doing this – it’s his or her option as well.

Rule 2: Do not place a comma before the first item in the list, or after the last item in the list. 

The Bracket (or parenthetical) Comma

The last in our series is the bracket comma.  Also called the parenthetical comma it does what it says.  It sets off a part of a sentence that contains information that may be nice, but not essential to that sentence.  For example:  In the development process of the widget, which will revolutionize the widget industry, we failed to estimate its greater value to tire manufacturers. 

The Final Word 

As we can see here, the old rule of thumb of using a comma wherever you would take a breath, if you were speaking the sentence, is not entirely accurate.  This rule of thumb does have some merit as a starting point, but it helps to know what type of comma is applicable when editing your work.

All About Freelance Public Relations Jobs

Kostenlose Immobilienbewertung

Public relations is an involved field of work for freelance writers. Freelance public relations usually entails writing reports, designing presentations, putting together ad campaigns, creating press releases, writing speeches, coaching, informing employees/clients/regulatory agencies about what’s going on at the office, and so on.

In short, if you want to freelance as public relations writer, you need a diverse set of skills. This includes exceptional writing ability, a knack for marketing, superior computer skills (with knowledge of presentation and desktop publishing software), and exceptional customer service.

If you don’t have these skills, you can probably outsource some of your work. However, hiring others to do your job for you will seriously dwindle your profits.

Who offers freelance public relations jobs?

Every publicly traded company needs PR people, including many private businesses. Marketing and communications firms are popular examples. In addition, government and non-profit organizations always seek the services of freelance PR pros. Museums, charities, and hospitals are just a few examples that encompass the endless list of organizations needing someone to handle their public relations.

To find public relations jobs, check out employment sites like workopolis.com and Yahoo! HotJobs. It’s also smart to sign up with websites like workinpr.com that specialize in connecting PR jobseekers with employers.

Don’t forget to check out websites like IFreelance and Guru. These freelance job auction sites allow you to bid on projects that suit your timeline, scope of abilities, and desired income level.

How much money can I make in freelance public relations?

That depends on the PR work that you’re doing. Freelance public relations encompass many “sub-jobs,” and consequently, each client will have different tasks that he or she wants you to oversee. A PR client may hire you to do everything from employee newsletters to nationwide marketing campaigns; or the client may hire you to type, copyedit, and proofread press releases. You and your client will have to agree on the list of expectations.

If you’re a jack-of-all-trades public relations writer, then don’t charge less than $40 an hour. If your client wants you to charge by project (which is more common for large PR campaigns), estimate the number of hours you will need and then multiply it by your hourly rate. As your list of happy PR clients grows, you may want to charge more. Many PR freelancers make $150 an hour and up.

In public relations, it is also common to charge by the day. PR professionals usually charge in the range of $300 to $1000 per day or more.

How do I properly respond to a public relations job ad?

Again, it depends on the work the client wants you to do. It also depends on the company it is. If a kids’ soccer league were looking for a PR freelancer, you’d hope to quote them a far smaller fee than you would an oil and gas company!

To ensure you create the best response possible, follow these guidelines:

1. Identify yourself as an extremely capable and professional PR freelancer.

2. Assure the client that you can handle each of the items he or she listed in the ad.

3. Mention how satisfied your previous clients have been with your work.

It’s obviously much easier to get this complex job with prior experience. However, if you don’t have previous PR clients, remember that any job experience with any required job skill is useful. For example, you may have written website content before. It’s not PR experience technically, but it shows you can handle that aspect of the job.

Sample ad

Below is a sample ad for a public relations freelance writer. What would you include in your response?

We are a mid-sized software company that needs a public relations specialist to add energy to our existing ad campaigns. We want to be well positioned within our market to reach out to new customers and generate more sales. You will rewrite our marketing material, design slideshows, and create two press releases per month about our products.

First, let the advertiser know you’re enthusiastic about this job opportunity. The company is looking for someone to reenergize their marketing efforts, so you should convey yourself as an energetic, dynamic person.

Second, address their task list. If you have relevant experience and satisfied past clients, discuss it here. If not, focus on how solid your skills are.

That’s all there is to it! Getting the client excited about your abilities is the key to success in public relations.

Writing For Textbroker: Is it a Scam?

Kostenlose Immobilienbewertung

When starting a freelance writing career online, the beginning of the process can be very confusing. You might spend a few days asking yourself these questions: Which sites are reputable? What sites pay the most? Am I wasting my time?

There are many reputable sites to work for online. Look for sites who ask you to apply and send in a sample of your work. They will usually get back to you in a day or two. If you are approved, be sure to read the FAQ of the site so that you will know the basics and how much you will be getting paid per article. You will also need to note how long your articles need to be and other qualifications that you might need to have.

Sometimes it’s hard to find sites who are reputable and freelancers are always sharing information as to which sites are good and which ones are scams. I have been asked at my website many times over the last few months if Textbroker.com was a reputable freelance writing company to work for. Is textbroker a scam? I can answer that question from experience. No, it text broker is not a scam. When you send in your writing sample, you will be given a ranking from 1-5 from the team at textbroker. The lower the ranking, the lower your pay per article will be.

Once you are accepted and ranked, you may log into the site to view available articles that are in your ranking and the rankings below yours. You can choose one article to write and then cannot choose another one until you have submitted the first. The articles are listed by category, so you can see which ones you might be interested in. Once you click on an article, you will get more detailed information from the client, such as which keywords to use and how many words the article needs to be.

Once you submit your article, it is sent to the client for approval. The client may do one of three things. They can reject the article outright. They can email you for a revision. They can accept the article. Once your article has been accepted by the client, you will see the payment show up in your textbroker account.

Textbroker will then pay you by paypal once your account has reached $10.00. This usually does not take very long to achieve. Each article that is accepted is given a ranking by textbroker. Then, your article rankings are averaged and you will be given a new ranking. As your rankings improve, so does your pay scale. Textbroker is not a scam. They pay in a timely manner and there is plenty of work in the assignments area.

If you are looking for other freelance writing sites that will pay you to submit articles, you should visit The Green Ninja at http://www.thegreenninja.org to read about other sites such as eHow, Demand Studios, Bukisa, Today.com and more. There is a wealth of information about getting your articles published and putting money in your pocket.

Grant Writing Jobs – A High Demand Writing Career

Kostenlose Immobilienbewertung

If you love to write, are highly organized, and enjoy working for a good cause, grant writing may be the perfect career for you. With more than 1.5 million nonprofits and thousands more organizations depending on grants in the United States alone, grant writers are in high demand.

What Do Grant Writers Do?

Grant writers are an integral part of the development or fundraising field. The term “grant writer” is a bit of a misnomer since grant writers actually write proposals to get grants. Writing is just one part of the their job. They also help develop programs, research potential funders, and draft reports and letters to donors. Grant professionals come from a variety of backgrounds, including social workers, English majors and scientists. The most successful share the following skills and traits:

  • Persuasive and Creative Writing Skills – ability to “sell” a program or project
  • Ability to Work Well With Others – able to collaborate with other staff on program/project development
  • Grace Under Pressure – ability to meet tight deadlines and manage multiple projects
  • An Eye for Detail – ability to decipher complicated instructions and grant guidelines

Where Do Grant Writers Work?

Grant writers work for a variety of different organizations, either as employees or freelance consultants. Nonprofit organizations employ the majority of grant writers. These include social service organizations, museums and arts organizations, environmental and animal welfare organizations, and more. Professionals in this field also work for schools, colleges and universities, and government agencies.

What is a Typical Day Like?

A typical day on the job varies dramatically depending on the size of the organization and the scope of the position. Grant writers who work at larger organizations are usually “specialists” while those working at smaller organizations are “generalists.” The majority of grant writing jobs fall into the latter category, where you will not only be responsible for drafting proposals but will also be charged with researching donors and managing grants that have been awarded. The typical duties of a generalist are:

  • Finding the Money – conducting research on potential donors
  • Developing the Programs – working with staff to develop fundable programs
  • Writing the Grant Proposal – developing a detailed, written plan of action
  • Managing the Grant – ensuring that program/project is being conducted as promised
  • Other Duties as Assigned – maintaining grant calendar and writing acknowledgments

How Much Money Do They Make?

The salary range for a Grant/Proposal Writer in the United States in 2009 was $41,590-$68,497, with a median salary of $51,967 (Salary.com). Those who work as independent contractors usually make a higher hourly wage than those who work full-time for nonprofits or government agencies. This rate varies dramatically, ranging from $40 to $100 an hour depending on level of experience.

How Do I Get Trained for the Field?

There is no specific college degree in grant writing. The vast majority of professional grant writers have a minimum of a bachelor’s degree from a college or university with a major in English, the social sciences, liberal arts, science, or social work. Majors with coursework that emphasizes writing and research provide a good foundation for the career. While books and Internet resources on grant writing are available, if you are serious about the field, classes and workshops conducted by experienced grant professionals will provide a more comprehensive overview of writing grants. Many include hands-on exercises including working on actual grant proposals. This training is crucial to landing internships and jobs in the field.

Are Grant Writers in Demand?

The job outlook is very good, especially in today’s difficult economy. Now more than ever, nonprofit organizations rely heavily on private grant dollars to support their programs and services. Grants from foundations, corporations, and organizations are crucial to keep programs running, and grant writers are needed for their expertise in securing these funds.

Conclusion

Grant writing is a field of professional writing where you can make a steady and lucrative living as a writer. Job opportunities are available with nonprofit organizations, schools, colleges and universities, government agencies, or as a freelance contractor.

Contemporary women writers in English

Contemporary women writers of   Indian writing in English

              Professor Dr.S.Elangovan,
P.T.Lee Chengalvaraya Naicker Engineering College,

Oovery. Tamil Nadu State, India. 2009 

Abstract: This paper gives insights into each “modus operandi” adopted   by some of  the women luminaries of  Indian writing in English. Their mission and vision of their writing career, the   influences with which they write, the message they want to convey to the readers are all to some extent analyzed. 

What   is so evident among  Indian women writers 

One  evident trait among all the contemporary women writers in  Indian writing in English is the  revolutionary spirit with which they strive to write. In some of the works by Arundati Roy, simply it is an explosion of the  pent- up feelings , which has long been gathering. 

 Tool for  Social  Justice: In the  deft hands of strong willed writers like Ashapurna Devi, writing  serves as a platform for social service. She has served the society through her virulent writings. She can be suitably called the Linguistic Dictator of Bengal. Asha Purna Debi’s burning flame of passion to serve the under privileged through her chosen medium is something rare. 

Common Characters seen   every day The secret behind the success of novels written by contemporary women writers is  their simple and life –like characters. They  usually hail from middle class families. This is   one of the techniques  the author employs to  make  the readers deeply involve and  subsequently the novels become quite absorbing and interesting. Similarly  Manju Kapur’s ‘Home’ revolves around a large  typical Indian Joint Family. 

Accent on female characters: Though Indian women writers, wax eloquence on all  aspects of the flaws and felicity of characters both male and female, the main thrust is  on female characters. They will   evoke  sometimes sympathy or sorrow, sometimes they outshine even male characters in  intelligence. 

Understanding of the psyche of the characters: Cotemporary women writers like Manju Kapur, are  considered to be Post Graduate students in the university of life. Through their character, they speak, They admit sometimes the faults and foilbles of the feminine gender.  In her novel, “ Home” Banvarilal’s daughters are selfish and their  husbands lethargic. In  spite of Sona’s wealthy  circumstances in “Home” she is without a child for ten  bitter years of   Married life. And her sister ‘Rupa’  in spite of her plain, not so  stunning look . She was blessed with more happiness than her rich sister  sona. 

Didactic   technique employed by Shoba De: Shoba De in her book “Spouse” reveals , the truth about  marriage and  intends to teach about the fine values of married life, and  moral obligations expected  of each spouse,  children and in-laws. De analyses thread bare the sacred institution of marriage that has been prevalent   for the 40 years. What was the   significance   of marriage then,   what is is now, what it  will be in future are well discussed  with it’s pros and  cons. 

  1. In her book “Spouse” the truth about marriage, gives a peace of suggestion at the tail end of   each chapter. Apart from exhorting the readers the   lofty ideals of married life apart from serving sort of succinct summary  of each chapter. The reader can choose a particular  quote dealing with a  specific aspect or problem in the married life and can read that chosen chapter as remedy. Shobha De with élan portrays the institution of  marriage realistically. 

Manju Kapur’s deft handling of   humor 

 Nisha, the daughter of  Sona the closing chapters steals the lime light. Her plights in the hands of her uncle who incestuously abused her  and her unfulfilled, and  jilted love affairs with a low caste boy, when she was a student of  English Literature in a University are really elements that would constitute next  door neighbors story. Manju Kapur is equally good in employing comedy to give respite from the otherwise  harshness of the plot. In this sense she is comparable  to a degree to Jane Austen. 

Sometimes she makes   fun of the middle class house wives, who are obsessed with making her unmarried daughters to undertake hunger fasting for  the wellbeing of their future husbands.

Kostenlose Immobilienbewertung

In today’s economy, many people want to learn transcription so they can get work to do from home either on a part-time basis to supplement a full-time income, or as a primary source of income on a stay-at-home basis. Whatever your situation or reason for wanting to learn how to do general transcription, learning how to transcribe from audio files is pretty easy. And getting proficient with it only takes time and practice.

This article will talk about the field of general transcription because that’s the fastest type of transcription to get started in. You don’t have to take any special classes and there are no certification programs for a general transcriptionist. You can get work from just about any business or academic field out there, except medical or legal where courses and certifications are most likely required.

And once you learn transcription, the door opens to a nice way to make some extra money or even launch your own general transcription business and be your own boss!

So how do you learn transcription? You do need to know your way around a computer, how to download files and use a word processing program. After that, you just need to follow these five easy steps and you’ll be on your way:

  1. Download Express Scribe at nch.com.au. Express Scribe is the most widely used software program today for turning your computer into a digital transcriber unit.
  2. Download Audacity at audacity.sourceforge.net. Audacity is one of the easiest and most often used audio recording and editing software available today. You may find webcasts and podcasts that you will have to record yourself online in order to use them to practice.
  3. Get yourself a good noise-canceling headset and computer foot pedal. These are necessary tools if you want better speed and accuracy.
  4. Download or record audio files to practice with. To find webcasts and podcasts to practice with, simply do a Google search for Business Webcasts or Business Podcasts and locate some directories where you can download the audio files or record them. You want to make sure you pick a wide range of subjects to practice with and a wide range of formats. General transcription work comes from all over – individuals, students, companies, other small business owners; the field is pretty much wide open and so your practice files should be too.
  5. Practice, practice, practice. This is all it takes to learn transcription. Start timing yourself to see how long it takes you to transcribe a 15 minute audio file, then a 30 minute audio file. The industry standard for transcription is four hours of typing to one hour of audio. Getting to the industry standard takes a lot of practice and you can only get faster the more you do it.
