I just graduated from the University of Washington Tacoma with a Bachelor's Degree in Writing Studies. Pretty sick, huh? I'm putting my knowledge to the test by sharing some useless facts I retained throughout my four years of higher education:
- Water masses are more dense in polar regions. This is because salt can't freeze- so, when ice blocks form, it causes a larger coverage of salt in the water.
1 a. "Salinity" means how salty water is.
2. In order to close an HTML tag, you must put "</>" at the end.
Ex: <i> I actually got a D in this web coding class </i>
2 a. "<i></i>" means italics.
3. To write in active voice, the subject has to go before the verb.
4. Ordinal data measurement is based upon a higher vs. lower hierarchy.
5. The National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) was implemented in 1970.
6. Charlotte Perkins Gilman's short story, "The Yellow Wallpaper" is super fucked up. Go read it right now!
7. Found in some forms of literature, dialectical materialism is the struggle between materialism and politics.
8. Page balance is the first and most prominent feature of design in technical documents.
9. 64% percent of adults believed fake news stories online after the 2016 election.
10. What I would argue to be the most overrated novel ever written, "Moby Dick" is basically just an 800 page metaphor.
11. The rhetorical situation answers the "Who, what, where, when, and why."
