  1. I support the moratorium of the Capital Punishment for several reasons: the Capital Punishment violates Article 3 under the Universal Declaration of Human Rights: "Everyone has the right to life, liberty and security of person." thus it violates international law, and any country not abiding to the UDHR does not set a good example for other more troubled nations (like Syria, Somalia, D.P.R.K., and others) and promotes discourse across the international community. [Especially as the United Nations has made the moratorium(abolition) of the Capital Punishment as one of their top agendas backed by
  2. Well if you're asking about English A1 HL questions, you could try checking these links out:http://www.englishal...ent/paper-2.htmhttp://en.wikibooks....nglish/Paper_II
  3. Have you actually developed anything with that conclusion? Haha well, in a way, yes. in the sense that it is wrong to hastily generalize all murder as ethically(or otherwise) "bad".
  4. Now, before I start, I'm just playing the Devil's Advocate here so I mean no offense to anyone (and please no hate mail/message/whatever) I will be talking in a typical TOK-ish sense so please bear with me. First of all, that is an absolute statement and a generalization. (therefore false in terms of TOK) Also, "bad" is relative. Bad for whom? It is obviously too bad for the dead individual, but in the case of the perpetrator, who has now derived from the murder wealth, respect, revenge, satisfaction, or whatever the perpetrator had hoped to gain from the murder, this individual is clearly
  5. I have very strong relationships with friends, but I do not feel obliged to talk to any of them. I merely talk to my friends because I want to, not because I have to. Also, if we were obliged to show commitment towards our friends once we were "friends", then there would inevitably come the awkward question of: "Are we friends?" or "Define friend" Otherwise we'd be unable to know exactly when to show this "commitment" It's not like I ask people: "Will you be my friend?" or "let's be friends from now on; and show continuous, regular, and everlasting commitment to each other", it just kind of "
  6. Well, as we learn in our beloved TOK classes, it doesn't take much for one to over-generalize something As for me, I've heard things like "most Americans are fat", "they're very unaware about what's outside their country", and other much ruder stereotypes, but the many Americans I've met seem to be very nice, friendly and healthy people so I'm not sure where all these rumors started. (Although the U.S. does have a high obesity rate) My best friend's an american and he's the awesomest guy in the world. When I tease him about being american we both know i'm joking as I know half the rumors out
  7. awesome! I'm going to be there this year as well, my school is Cuba and I'll be in 1st General Assembly Committee how about you?
  8. WOLFRAM MATHEMATICA I think this program may be one of the best programs out there in the market. The program can do a lot more than graphing, but is really built for it. It does cost some money to buy it but after that the processing time is very fast as much of it processes over the company's server (provided you have wifi) Here are some pictures of the very nice graphs it can draw:
  9. sin(x)/sin(y) can be written/simplified in a number of ways: Firstly, you may reorganize the phrase as aldld did above into sin(x)csc(y), however this is merely a slightly different name for the same thing. Another form is "(e^(-i x)-e^(i x))/(e^(-i y)-e^(i y))", although this is also simply a substitution rearrangement of the same mathematical phrase. You may also assume that the x and y values are real (as in real numbers), and given that, change the form to: "-(2sin(x) sin(y)) / (cos(2y)-1)" Hope this helps P.S. The 3D graph for this formula is attached as a JPEG file so take note
  10. All of Shakespeare's books were very enthralling, especially Twelfth Night(What you will), Hamlet, Much ado about Nothing, and the Midsummer Night's Dream. I also enjoyed the enthralling books by George Orwell: 1984 and Animal Farm. Brave New World, a dystopian piece similar to 1984, was very nice as well.
  11. I'm planning to investigate casino games with relation to the percentage chance the casino and the participants have to win an actual profit. Not the roulette or slot machines though, that's too simple. Otherwise, I may do something with vector equations or advanced calculus but unsure yet exactly with ideas in that department. Hope this sparks some ideas
  12. You know you're in the IB when... -- your IB textbook is your pillow. -- you skip class to do homework -- you can spell "Baccalaureate" -- all you chat with your friends about are test solutions -- you do homework instead of eating in your lunch breaks -- you understand and analyze the science behind sci-fi movies -- every time you do something, you wonder if it could be included as CAS -- you spend your free time playing with your calculator -- you think about the "validity of your statement" as you bitch about ppl (damn it)
  13. In my opinion, the United Nations must support the Free Syrian Army because they haven't really got a choice anymore, France has already decided to consider the FSA as the official governance of Syria and severed diplomatic ties with the former government, and other states are expected to follow suit. What frustrates me is UN's typical vacillation in sending enough UN troops to end the war. Because of their indecision, more people are getting hurt and the FSA is starting to have internal doubts and friction, causing instability in their already unstable structure formed purely of rebels and ci
  14. I'm planning to do a chemistry EE, perhaps about reflux reactions or something with spectrophotometry but am unsure yet about what my exact topic would be. Any help would be welcome
