How important is it to know where to place a comma?
Although most people prefer to write shorter sentences, by writing longer sentences ideas can be drawn out and further emphasis placed on the ideas being communicated. When writing longer sentences, a comma separates ideas and creates a break for the speaker reading the sentence. The comma can, also, add supporting or clarifying words to the idea being mentioned and discussed. Without commas, sentences would be very short or difficultly communicated. So, cheers to the comma!
Subject: Library and Information Science
How can I use skills developed in using the Library and searching for information in my daily life?
When searching for information with a librarian, the information seeker is guided to finding ways to evaluate their search terms, filter their results, and find the best results for their research or interests. This process is helpful when shopping online for items you want but have in mind some requirements for these items. Using the filters to narrow down your options, the same skills used for researching can help you find products that fit your needs. The parallel between the two platforms are similar enough to make the process easy and illustrating their similarities can help information seekers understand how to better research for multiple reasons.
Subject: Film and Theater
How is lighting in film different from lighting for the theater?
When lighting for film, you have to keep in mind that although the talent and production can be moved through direction and blocking, the cameras can also be moved and lenses can be changed to evoke different feelings, add to the look of the scene, and change the dynamics of the scene. This is different in theater where the audience can only see everything on stage from one angle and there are multiple angles to consider for each moment of the scene. However restraining it may seem to light for theater, this is actually a great opportunity to explore other methods of changing the perspective of the audience through mechanics, partial lighting, and by forcing the eyes to move with the help of lighting.
