Question:

What are some strategies to edit your own work?

Answer:

Editing your own work can be a challenge. One of the best strategies is to consider what you need to work on as a writer and start by looking for those errors and common mistakes. For example, I know I tend to repeat arguments and not state my point explicitly enough. Those are the first issues I look for and correct, and then look at topic sentences, then finish with spelling and grammar.

Question:

Bill tells Anthony that if Anthony climbs the flagpole, Bill will give Anthony $50. Anthony runs towards the flagpole and starts to climb it, getting around halfway up before Bill yells, "I'm only joking, this was a prank!" Anthony really wanted that $50. As his attorney, what do you advise he do?

Answer:

I would advise Anthony to finish climbing the flagpole. Contract law uses an objective standard to determine whether there is mutual assent, an offer, acceptance, and consideration for the exchange. There is consideration here, with the exchange being Anthony getting $50 from Bill in exchange for Anthony climbing the flagpole for Bill's entertainment. Going to the other three elements, Bill told Anthony to climb the flagpole for $50, which was an offer, and Anthony started to accept through performance by running towards the flagpole and climbing up it. Anthony gets halfway up before Bill yells he is only joking, which objectively, make it look like Bill was serious about giving Anthony the $50 at first and it looks like Anthony was serious about accepting by running and climbing, suggesting there was mutual assent and an offer, despite Bill's claim he was only joking. The reason Anthony needs to continue climbing is because it could be disputed that Anthony only getting halfway up the flagpole is acceptance by performance. Anthony needs to perform a substantial amount of the task before he has accepted, and Bill could argue halfway is not substantial because Anthony only made it 50% of the way there, rather than 75% or 80%, which would be closer to substantial. Anthony could try and argue that halfway to the top is substantial, or, he could just uphold his end of the contact completely, and finish performance, accepting, and binding Bill with no good argument. Therefore, I would yell up to Anthony to finish climbing so he could guarantee his $50.

Question:

Please list three attributes of World War I that made it unique or different from previous wars in Europe.

Answer:

Among the many reasons World War I is unique, these three stand out in particular: the manner in which it was fought, the technology used, and the global aspect. Starting with the manner in which World War I was fought, it was the first war of attrition. Instead of two armies charging at each other, the two armies hid in trenches, occasionally trying to break the line. The war was slow, with little progress, and the disease and conditions of the trenches themselves were just as deadly as the shells coming from overhead. The shells lead into the second unique attribute of World War I: the modern warfare technology used. Industrialization had fully arrived by 1914, and the weapons were both more deadly and could be made faster. Shells best exemplify this, as they had not been used so readily in previous wars and the industrialization of Europe allowed them to be made in mass. Mass production meant armies could shell each other for hours, leading to new problems like "shell shock," now known as PTSD. Shells also physically changed the landscape of Europe, taking chunks out of the ground, and creating a longer-lasting impact than previous wars. Lastly, the global aspect of World War I was a change from previous wars. Due to Europe's imperialism, vast portions of the world were suddenly implicated in what would have previously been a European war. Even countries that did not have to lend men to the army found themselves tied up as economies and goods shifted into supplying weapons or food. The Americans, for example made a profit on selling weapons to the Allies before getting involved in the actual conflict themselves. For these three reasons, among others, World War I was a different war from the previous European wars.
