All essays at ESLBEE.COM are by university students who have given written permission for their work to be published in this site. If you copy/paste an essay and turn it in as your own, it is a very serious academic offence.
The penalties for plagiarism in most universities are very high. From a policy perspective, almost certainly the first incident of plagiarism will get written into the student's permanent record, and a second offence will get a student expelled. From a personal perspective, when your teacher discovers plagiarism (and they almost always do), it not only affects the grade on an essay, but the school's policies once set in motion are always very embarrassing.
From a different perspective, the University of California at Berkeley shows how good documentation makes you look better. They say "Citations allow readers to further explore your sources, show the depth and scope of your research, and add credibility to your work" UC Berkeley.
The reasons to avoid plagiarism are extremely persuasive. Instead of plagiarizing, read widely to see how other writers write, and then take the steps necessary do develop your own writing voice.
There are some things that happen to cows and whales. One of the things, both cows and whales are eaten by people in some countries as edible meat. Another thing, although they are living different places like ocean and land, they have their own lives.
This essay is one of my favorites because I thought the topic was so strange when I first saw it. Contrasting cows and whales didn't make any sense to me at all, or at least it didn't before I read this essay. The essay was written by a Japanese student studying English in Denver, and I realized the essay makes sense from the Japanese perspective.
I have held this essay for a full 20 years because it is a reminder to me of how lucky I am to have had the privilege of teaching and learning about new ideas from fresh minds and young students from a variety of cultures.
It seems that cows and whales are in a same situation. But there are some differences that could be compared. First, many cows are slaughtered everyday. On the other hand, whales are protected by national law recently. Second, cows are important provisions for all over the world. However, whales are important edible animals only in a few countries. Finally, there is the biggest difference between cows and whales. It is that whales are free in the huge ocean until caught by people, and cows will be grown up in the field by the people to eat.
The first difference between cows and whales is that cows are the most popular edible meat all over the world. Therefore, many cows are butchered everyday. Of course, there are several reasons that people use cows to their provisions. Because cows are easy for farmers to breed, and they are not as clever as other animals. On the other hand, whales have been protected by a law. (The United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea) Therefore, every whaler has been limited in number to catch the whales recently. The reason of this law is whales are not easy to breed as cows. And they are such a clever animals more than any other kind of animal.
The second difference is that cows are important provisions all over the world. Almost of all countries use beef as their main dish. Therefore, it is nothing wound and give any impression us to slaughter cows. But whales have been used as edible meat in a few countries like small islander countries. Therefore, for the people who are living in big countries, to slaughter the whales look like violence activity and wounded hunting.
The final difference is the biggest difference between cows and whales. Cows are raised by farmers in the fields that are surrounded by fences. They don't have any future. And they have to wait their slaughter in the field. On the other hand, whales are free in a huge ocean. They can swim and travel wherever they want. Even though, they are caught by people, other whales have a future. They don't need to wait their slaughter. They have their lives and freedom until caught by people.
In conclusion, there are something that happen to cows and whales. Both cows and whales are eaten by people as edible meat. Some people said that it is so poor for whale to be caught by whaler. But, how about cows? Sometimes cows and whales are both on the same situations. However, practically both cows and whales are completely opposite situations and different treatment.
