Raincheck: a postponement due to unforeseen circumstances. This word – sometimes shown as two words – comes from the USA and was used when a baseball game had to be called off due to bad weather… [Read more…]

Essay writing services that help students cheat: would you be proud of a degree earned this way?

These cheating essay writing services people are so, so sneaky … I thought I could smell them when they email me offering “guest posts,” but I fell for this one who did actually write more or less what I suggested he do.

Cheating at college by buying written essaysThree things rang an alarm bell once the article arrived: one, a sub-heading wasn’t quite correct English; two, his bio at the end was incomplete, terminating in mid-sentence; and three, there was an embedded link. When I clicked the link, Microsoft warned me that it was suspicious. But I was nosy, and getting angry by this point. I avoided clicking on the link, but typed it into Chrome.

Why not Why Not? DIY marketing comms quick tip…

In DIY – usually local – advertising you often see a line that says, “Why not check us out / come to see us / try our product or service /” etc.
