SQL Programming
TutorMe
Question:

I've studied some programming, so how is SQL different from other common languages such as C# and JavaScript?

Amy S.
Answer:

Structured Query Language, or SQL, is a language that is fundamentally used to question-or query-a database. It is relational, meaning that it only adds, edits, and removes information to and from the database. It does not run any programs, nor can it support other languages. Languages like C# and JavaScript are object-oriented programming languages. This means that they apply logic to manipulate the data stored and created. They use commands, and contain things like for- and while- loops.

Writing

Question:

Why do we continue to study Shakespeare when his writings are completely outdated and difficult to read?

Amy S.
Answer:

First, and least gracefully, since it has been made required reading for high school and some college classes, we do it because we have to. It has become a situation where because the academics in charge like it, we all have to try it. However, it is not unreasonable to believe that the second reason may be the cause of the first: Shakespeare created extremely relatable characters through which he openly and eloquently described life. We can all relate to the internal emotions and irrational actions of some of the characters-even if we have a hard time admitting it. Another reason may be that Shakespeare came up with some super catchy phrases. Much like a pop song on the radio that we claim to hate, yet know every word to. Some things just stick in our heads, and many of these phrases we still use today. An example of this is when we lose something, and we say that it has "vanished into thin air". Finally, once we have translated English into English, we can see that Shakespeare is actually quite funny. And sometimes a little spicy! Humor is one element of communication known to live throughout the ages, because we can all use a good laugh now and then. For these reasons, and more, we continue to study Shakespeare's writings.

Anthropology

Question:

How does a minor in anthropology put me ahead of the curve in my (seemingly) unrelated career goal? Please give examples.

Amy S.
Answer:

Anthropology is simply the study of humans (and our closest living primate relatives). In any career, we are going to have to deal with people-whether directly or indirectly-and understanding the differences in people help us to better meet their needs. By being able to approach these situations with knowledge and consideration, we will always stnd out from the crowd. For example, a doctor has to know human anatomy and physiology. And if there is a health problem, the doctor has to be able to treat the patient effectively, in order to restore health. By understanding the cultural values of the patient, as well as any predispositions based on the region, the doctor can best decide the proper course of action to recommend. Some religions, for instance, prevent blood transfusions, so an alternative course would be suggested. In the corporate and industrial world, we see the mergers of companies and their respective cultures all the time. Someone with a deep understanding of the implications these marriages have on the human element is better suited to avoid unnecessary complications.
