Hello! I would like to ask certain questions regarding several topics that I may have difficulty in. It would be a great honor for you to support me and help me with them. Thanks for everything you have done for the past few years :P I really appreciate it

Yeah - that's it, isn't it?

Do you want me therefore to delete the whole thread?

Is it time for 'Sapphire Questions' to disappear?

:( 

 

You have done marvelously - I presume you're away onto A-levels and the rest of your life now ... so congratulations, well done, and all the best.

It has been a delight working with you all these years.

 

 

I think I am going to retire from the History Help forum - to be honest, one of the things that kept me going was the desire to see you through to the end of your GCSEs.

I have been retired from teaching 3 years now, so all my knowledge and experience is going just a little out-of-date (and they are changing all the National Curriculum and GCSEs), and secondly I have got this new very busy job as a County councillor.

 

I shall still probably - like I do at my school - visit occasionally!

 

All the very best.

Now enjoy a VERY well-deserved holiday!!!!!!

Hi Sapphire,

 

I'm not sure how much help I can be with this, but I will post something on to the school history teachers' forum and see if they can.  In the meantime, what do you know about Durkheim, the functionalists, socialisation, anomie, consensus etc?

 

Mr P.

I have posted to the teachers' forum, though I think we might find that there's not much sociology expertise there, as it's a history teachers' forum.

 

In the meantime, your best approach is to look at the notes / textbooks you've been given and see if you can understand what the functionalist view of socialization is, and what alternative views there are of it.

 

Hope that helps...

 

Mr P.

Sorry we couldn't be of more use, but sociology is out of our remit (very interesting though!)

Hi Sapphire,

 

I can only offer you very broad advice I'm afraid - biology was never one of my strong points.  I think it would be great if you thought about how to construct a google search for some advice on this answer.

 

I put your question directly into google - it wasn't very helpful. 

 

So I put it another way and used the key words 'treatments' 'autism'  and came up with this - http://www.nhs.uk/Co.../Treatment.aspx

 

It's the good old NHS, so I think that it is probably a fair summary of the treatments available in the UK.  It also contains a link to http://www.autism.org.uk/approaches which is a page maintained by a national charity for autism.

 

I think that's probably my best shot.  I would urge you to read my comments about how I found this information and why these sources appealed to me. Were these comments helpful?

 

thanks

 

Mr P.

HI Sapphire, please don't think I'm avoiding hard work, but I am afraid that the rules of the forum don't allow me to check work in this way.  If there's a particular passage that you're worried about then you could paste that, but the best way to get good feedback would be to talk to your teacher about it.

 

Mr. P.

I don't know about Mr. Podesta, but this is certainly way out of my range!  Probably too late now as well (sorry).

 

As far as I can tell you either have a celebrity or impossibly good-looking, well-dressed people posing around a bottle, or a short film which seems to bear no relation to the product being sold.  A pretentious name might also be a good idea.  (Other product ideas are available).

 

Looking at it, it doesn't help very much, does it?  I suppose you need to create something generic (i.e. like the other ads) or do something different which would make your advert stand out.  Anyway, sorry I can't be more help.
