Explain the difference between the “common-knowledge” material in a research paper and the material from sources to which you must give credit.
Common knowledge is knowledge that is known by everyone or nearly everyone, usually with reference to the community in which the term is used. A Good example of common knowledge would be that you only drive when the light is green except when making a right turn in some states. It is important to give credit when doing a research paper, if you use quotes from another person to support your research. This information my come from books, journals or newspaper articles etc.
Give an example from your field of study of a “common-knowledge” concept, idea, or fact for which no secondary support is required in a research paper.
For me, in my field of study of a “common-knowledge” would be that I have check my emails every day at work to make sure that I am able to answer all enquires about veterans issues from the previous day, so that we can move forward in assisting and meeting the veterans needs
Give an example from your field of a topic, question, or idea for which a secondary source must be cited or credited in a research paper. During my research for my class I had to gather as much information as I could on restaurants. I had to look through a lot of magazines pertaining to the restaurant industries. I have to cite it because it was not my own…...

Common Sense

...Common Sense Common sense is the knowledge and thinking ability a person acquires through experience and from teachings passed on from others, and is used to deal with everyday life in appropriate manners. It is what a person relies on to tell them, generally, what is right or wrong, good or bad, and what is best for them in a given situation to sustain overall well-being. It reflects the thought process that is used when faced with possible uncertainty, and it relies heavily on memory. It enables someone to compare their present to moments of their past and to use judgment based on connections between the two (sometimes in opposition to logic). In other words, common sense is a person’s intuition, and this instinct is constantly molded over the course of their lifetime. It can be agreed that experience and guidance in the early stages of life leads to better common sense. From birth, parents influence the instincts and thinking skills that their children develop. They teach their young to use their senses to navigate the world around them. Parents also guide their children through understanding what their senses are telling them. It is during this early-life period that children acquire reasoning and memory skills which will be used for the remainder of their lives. For example, whenever a child plays outside in chilly weather, the mother will encourage them to bundle up so that they do not catch a cold. However, when that child does not listen and gets sick, they......

Common Law

...1.2.1 Common law The term common law gives rise to diffi culty as it has several meanings, so any meaning depends upon the context in which the term is used: Common law may mean the law created by the common law courts in contrast to the law created by the Court of Chancery, which was called equity. Common law may m • ean all the law created by the courts, including the law of equity, as opposed to the law created by Parliament, that is legislation. In this sense, common law may be also termed ‘judge- made’ law. • Common law may refer to a legal tradition which defi nes the English legal system and other derivative legal systems as opposed to the civilian legal tradition exemplifi ed by the systems of mainland Europe. Apart from England and Wales other examples of a common law tradition are to be found in the legal systems of the states of the United States (with the exception of Louisiana), Canada, and Australia. Common law in this sense refers to forms of law- making, particularly judge- made law, which is governed by the doctrine of judicial precedent. The characteristic feature of the civilian systems is that law is to be found in codes made by the legislature. The civilian tradition is seen in the legal systems of France and Germany. While the French law of contract is codifi ed and to be found in legislative form, the English law of contract is to be found mainly in the decisions of judges as reported in 7 Common law and equity the law reports.

Common Sense as a Source of Knowledge

...The Weaknesses and Strengths of Common Sense and Science as Sources of Knowledge There are many sources of knowledge as the society progresses. In this case, the most controversial question would be whether or not common sense can be accounted as a reliable source of knowledge? Although both common sense and science can be taken into account as sources of knowledge, I will argue that to some extent common sense and scientific knowledge are still very different from one another. That is, scientific knowledge is much more highly valued and reliable than common sense. By definition, common sense is a knowledge that is developed from daily basis, and is primarily based on the viewer’s observation, while scientific knowledge is generated from a constant formal of testing in the real world. In this essay, I will discuss the weaknesses and strengths of common sense and scientific knowledge and defend my position for why scientific knowledge is generally regarded as more reliable and authoritative than common sense. In this section, I will discuss the main strengths of common sense and science. Arthur E. Murphy, an American philosopher, believed that the ability to learn by experience is the most fundamental factor in our intellectual progress. On one hand, namely, common sense is both common and sensible. That is, common sense beliefs can be easily observed by individuals and it is rather comprehensible. Science, on the other hand, uses a rational methodology. Also, along......

...| Bridging the Knowing-Doing Gap | Exploring Tacit Knowledge & Knowledge Creation | | Conor Butler | | Abstract With billions of dollars spent each year on management training, business research, management consulting and with many books and articles written on the same subjects, it has been argued that all of this information and knowledge is not reflected in what organisations actually do Pfeffer, Sutton (2000). There is often a big gap that occurs between translating all the knowledge and information that we learn into positive actions that can be of benefit to an organisation. How often does a manager attend a training session, read a manual or be present at a conference, often at the expense of an employer, that attempts to teach them the correct way to implement a strategy or attack and solve a problematic process only for that manager to fall back to old ways of behaving?. Often people can fall back into old work habits due to time pressures, peer pressure, lack of faith in their capabilities, and sometimes by the idea that everything is going fine anyway so the need for change is not that necessary. There are many talented managers that have complex ways of thinking and possess “tacit” knowledge of internal efficiencies but would be unable to write them down in a manual. They are “unable to conceptualize their strategic insights” (Senge, 1990). A lot of this knowledge can then get lost or leave with an employee when they change jobs or retire. ...

...Effects of Michigan Common Core State Standards on Developmentally Appropriate Practices in Early Childhood Classrooms Effects of Michigan Common Core State Standards on Developmentally Appropriate Practices in Early Childhood Classrooms Introduction As an early childhood teacher in 2013, I am constantly feeling challenged and overwhelmed by mandated curriculum from the State of Michigan. With the recent implementation of Michigan Common Core State Standards, I began to feel the pressure of teaching curriculum that the children do not seem to understand. I began to wonder why? Is it because I failed to deliver the lesson? Is it due to concepts being too difficult? Are the standards appropriate for all learners and where they are in their development? During my career spanning over twenty years, I have believed and am dedicated to providing a classroom environment that is developmentally appropriate for my early learners. I believe the problem is that Michigan's Common Core State Standards are causing early childhood teachers to teach in ways that are not developmentally appropriate. These beliefs brought me to this topic and caused me to ponder if others feel the way I do. Are the Common Core State Standards mandated by the state of Michigan are creating early childhood classrooms that are not developmentally appropriate as perceived by myself and my colleagues. I believe that early childhood classrooms should be free of mandates from......

...this point I think it is also can link to the knowledge retention. In an organization, much of vital knowledge can be held by single people. A single subject matter expert may hold vital operational knowledge in his or her head, representing a “single point of failure” for the organization. (In here, we can say this is the 20% of employees produce 80% of a company's results.) If the person leaves, they are older, and they are reaching retirement age. This is a kind of knowledge loss, means when valuable knowledge is no longer available for the organization to use. We want to eliminate the knowledge loss we need to understand the knowledge retention. Knowledge retention in the context of losing key employees and using techniques such as exit interviews to try to capture their knowledge. In reality, knowledge retention should be integrated into how the organization operates and start well before a key employee is about to depart. Although it is considered crucial for long term organizational success, few organizations have formal knowledge retention strategies (Liebowitz 2011). A knowledge retention strategy as a part of knowledge management (KM) will identify the knowledge resources that are at risk and must be retained, and then implement specific initiatives so as to keep these resources in the firm. Like most other KM-related processes and strategies, success depends upon successful knowledge sharing and having a knowledge sharing & learning organizational culture.......

Using the Sources and Your Own Knowledge, Describe the Role of Public Bill (Standing) and Departmental Select Committees of the House of Commons

...Department of Education. From my own knowledge, these departmental committees have a minimum of 11 members, who decide upon the line of inquiry and then get evidence. The government then usually has 60 days to reply to the committee's recommendations. Committees also have power to appoint specialists. These are not permanent committee members, but specialists from businesses paid by the day. They aim to scrutinise the executive and hold them to account, scrutiny includes policy, administration, and expenditure of government departments. Source C suggests that Select Committees often have their recommendations ignored, and therefore the effectiveness of the committees is decreased. Due to the reports produced by Select Committees not being binding governments can disregard the advice from specialists, and reports that are produced tend not to be unanimous - especially when a general election is near. Not only that, but governments can refuse to provide certain information which could be important evidence, and often select committees are under-resourced meaning they cannot provide fully effective scrutiny to the actions of the executive. Public Bill (Standing) Committees are - unlike Select Committees - able to amend and improve legislative bills. They scrutinise each clause of a bill clause by clause and amendments can be made. These committees are formed from between 16-50 members in reflection of party affiliation in the House of Commons from back bench MPs - with......

...Council of Chief State School Officers, committing to a state-led process; the Common Core State Standards Initiative. Finally it felt that the public’s decade’s long outcry for change was heard. As with any change there is resistance however and quite unexpectedly the uproar has caused certain states to question their involvement in the initiative. So while the public and its educators are in an uproar over education reform they are not happy with the chosen method of implementing common core state standards here in the United States. America needs this reform in order to remain a forerunner in the international standings a market where we have continued to fall, and while a majority scrambles for insight they should turn to the minority that has gotten it right the state of Michigan in particular who has made all of its recourses available for the remaining states to use for free. State education standards have been about since the 1990s. By the early 2000s, every state had established and implemented its own education standards that stipulate what students in grades three through eight and high school should be able to accomplish. Every state also had its own classification of aptitude; this lack of standardization was one motivation why states decided to cultivate the Common Core State Standards in 2009. State school superiors and governors acknowledged the significance of consistent, real-world knowledge goals and propelled this effort to guarantee all students,......

Common Sense

...1. Why does Paine write Common Sense anonymously and how does he think his work will be remembered? "In the following sheets, the author hath studiously avoided every thing which is personal among ourselves. Compliments as well as censure to individuals make no part thereof. The wise and the worthy need not the triumph of a pamphlet; and those whose sentiments are injudicious or unfriendly, will cease of themselves, unless too much pains is bestowed upon their conversion." (Thomas Paine) So, basically as much as the book means for the colonists, Paine wanted to be on a rather neutral ground. He had no need for the glory that brought forth by a pamphlet (which is the whole Common Sense) nor he wanted to go against those who would certainly punish him for what his work brought forth. He himself clearly said that only those who got too hurt emotionally by sins they made would spare him for what he wrote. (aiming at the authorities who used violence to suppress the colonists) It is merely a guess from my part but I think what he meant was that he should not be the one the sacrifice but instead the colonists who were being suppressed at the time. He did not want them to rely on anyone but themselves to save their own life. Thus, he probably thought that his work would remain as something written by basically no one at all but merely created by the people' passions for freedom. On other words, the work was only there to raise the spirit of colonist to fight for their own lives......

...------------------------------------------------- CASE 7: The Forgotten Group Member Developed by Franklin Ramsoomair, Wilfred Laurier University The Organizational Behavior course for the semester appeared to promise the opportunity to learn, enjoy, and practice some of the theories and principles in the textbook and class discussions. Christine Spencer was a devoted, hard-working student who had been maintaining an A–average to date. Although the skills and knowledge she had acquired through her courses were important, she was also very concerned about her grades. She felt that grades were paramount in giving her a competitive edge when looking for a job and, as a third-year student, she realized that she’d soon be doing just that. Sunday afternoon. Two o’clock. Christine was working on an accounting assignment but didn’t seem to be able to concentrate. Her courses were working out very well this semester, all but the OB. Much of the mark in that course was to be based on the quality of groupwork, and so she felt somewhat out of control. She recollected the events of the past five weeks. Professor Sandra Thiel had divided the class into groups of five people and had given them a major group assignment worth 30 percent of the final grade. The task was to analyze a seven-page case and to come up with a written analysis. In addition, Sandra had asked the groups to present the case in class, with the idea that the rest of the class members would be “members of the board of......
