What Microsoft program should I use for my business needs?
Each program available in Microsoft Office is powerful, and many of them overlap in capabilities. However, it is always best to consider which program is best suited for what you are working on as it will make your life so much easier. For example, you can make wonderful fliers, bookmarks, and pamphlets using either Word or Publisher. But while Publisher was designed with these tasks in mind, and hence has the tools needed to make this much easier, Word is a more tradition, let me type an essay program. Basically, this means while you can do it in Word, you are basically going to be doing everything from scratch, where as Publisher has fun tools to do most of the formatting for you.
Subject: Library and Information Science
What are some ways you can determine if an information source can be trusted?
This question is best answered with a series of other questions to ask yourself. What is the source? Is it a satirical blog or paper, or a paper known for common fables, or a trusted source of information? Who is the author? Are they qualified to talk on this subject? Is it peer-reviewed? Did other people in the field have the chance to look at it and accept it as a legitimate viewpoint. .Finally, is it recent, or is it something that could have changed drastically since the publication of the work?
Subject: World History
In what ways can observations about the past affect how we react to changes in our world today?
Though there are differences in basic understanding and technology between our cultures of today and those of the past, they had some surprisingly good insights that can still helpful today. Methods such as the quarantine we have been using during the modern pandemic were started during the Black Death of Europe for example. Though they believed the plague to be caused by bad humors, they more or less understood that proximity increased your likelihood of becoming ill. It is for reasons such as these that understanding how peoples of the past lived is so important. They may have had insights that even today could be especially helpful.
