Dear Editor, I suddenly stumbled on Jeremy Clarkson’s article, “Stuff the Tigers – Long live extinction” as it celebrates extinction and makes a mockery of the trade in tigers. I am writing this letter to show my disagreement on some of his ideas and points of view; also I am the person who likes those living creatures. I can easily understand that is hard to find a new theme and write an interesting article especially for our generation, but this article reached and passed all of the limits. It is really easy to see that author didn’t treat article as seriously as it needed to be treated; his use of sarcasm belittles and demeans what the majority of people find an important environmental issue. However, I wanted to point out that every single bit of the article is rude. Even the title is creating a negative tension. “Stuff” – this word makes reader think to stop caring about this issue and just fill the tigers with stuffing once dead. “Long live extinction” – these words tease the reader with contradiction, and makes them think that everything is going well and extinction is impossible. I think that the use of this language in the title shows that the author is trying to manipulate the reader by making them agree with him through humour. Mr. Clarkson is not showing the whole picture of the problem of extinction. The reader thinks that everything is going well, and people have time to change it. However the problem of extinction is serious, and people should think about it now, because in the future it will be too late. As it was written in the article, tigers provide business; example for it is “demand for illegal tiger parts is booming”. I can agree with the fact of people need money to feed families, clothes and shelter themselves to survive. But I want to argue with this statement and the easiest factor to tell is that it is just greed. As well Mr Clarkson admits and mentions in his phrase, its “illegal”, therefore wrong. Just because its profitable, does not make it right, it’s a murder. Lets say, for example groups that assassinate people for money. It is also profitable, but everyone agree that those actions are wrong and according to laws, they need to be punished, because it is illegal. So, there is no difference. Another factor, which I won’t forget to mention is that extinction, is a high price for little a gain. Life is priceless, especially when it comes to a large number of species. Money is not worth it.
Also author stated, “animals become extinct naturally like “the brontosaurus”. They died without human interference. His example of dinosaurs is ridiculous: an asteroid from space destroyed them! Also, we weren’t there so we couldn’t change anything. But tigers are alive. It is still worth fighting for an animal’s survival out of compassion for other life. I have to notice the fact, which proves that most extinctions have occurred because of human cruelty and dodo is one of the examples.
Mr Clarkson also wrote that we should only care for those who are in our social group. The author is trying to show that nothing bad will happen if one of the species will become extinct, and people will do nothing with that issue; he thinks that we should only protect other people like us. However, if the human race will not care about the Earth and creatures on it, a lack of supplies will ensue, because predators will kill all of the victims and other creatures that give us food. Also it will cause economic problems, because of lack of supplies the cost of products will increase and it will be difficult for people from low classes to buy a food. Starvation could happen, would Mr. Clarkson be so dismissive then?
All in all, I want to say that the extinction of tigers is a very important issue, and it may cause a big problem. I know that there are lots of other problems, but extinction of animals, not only tigers is not the least. The extinction of animals can be solved. The creation of organization such as “Green Peace”, new laws, punishments, etc. might solve these problems. Preserves and zoos are other ways in which people can protect species from extinction.
From the point of view of the reader, the article is very effectively written, but Mr. Clarkson should think about disadvantages of the extinction. I think “The Sunday Times” should think about the opposition of Jeremy Clarkson’s article, put the article about the results, if species become extinct. Everything depends on people. Our race is young, and there lots of thing that we need to learn. We have to remember that the intelligence and character are the aspects of true life education.

Sincerely, Maria Golubkova…...

The 2010 survey of women’s experiences of maternity services Over 25,000 women from 144 trusts in England responded to the survey between April 2010 and August 2010, a response rate of 52%. Women were eligible for the survey if they had a live birth in February 2010 and were aged 16 or older. Women who gave birth in a hospital, birth centre, or maternity unit, or who had a home birth, were eligible. A similar survey of women using maternity services was carried out in 2007.

For this reason we have produced the benchmark reports...

...Solutions Guide: 1. We focus on free cash flows rather than accounting profits because these are the flows that the firm receives and can reinvest. Only by examining cash flows are we able to correctly analyze the timing of the benefit or cost. Also, we are only interested in these cash flows on an after tax basis as only those flows are available to the shareholder. In addition, it is only the incremental cash flows that interest us, because, looking at the project from the point of the company as a whole, the incremental cash flows are the marginal benefits from the project and, as such, are the increased value to the firm from accepting the project. 2. Although depreciation is not a cash flow item, it does affect the level of the differential cash flows over the project's life because of its effect on taxes. Depreciation is an expense item and, the more depreciation incurred, the larger are expenses. Thus, accounting profits become lower and in turn, so do taxes which are a cash flow item. 3. When evaluating a capital budgeting proposal, sunk costs are ignored. We are interested in only the incremental after-tax cash flows, or free cash flows, to the company as a whole. Regardless of the decision made on the investment at hand, the sunk costs will have already occurred, which means these are not incremental cash flows. Hence, they are irrelevant.

The exhibition “Kremlin Palace Treasures are in the Topkapı Palace” is inviting all residents of Istanbul to be the witnesses of the great meeting of the two palaces. After the “Ten Thousand Years of Iranian Civilization, Two Thousand Years of Common Heritage” exhibition which was financially supported by the Istanbul 2010 European Capital of Culture Agency, this second exhibition was formed with the objects that belong to the 16th-17th centuries, the peace period between the Ottoman and Russian empires.

Moscow Plague and Riot of 1771

...Moscow Plague and Riot 1771 The Plague of 1771, was the last massive outbreak of plague in central Russia, claiming between 52 and 100 thousand lives in Moscow alone (1/6 to 1/3 of its population). (Melikishvili, 2006) The bubonic plague epidemic that originated in the Moldovan theatre of the 1768–1774 Russian-Turkish war in January 1770 swept northward through Ukraine and central Russia, peaking in Moscow in September 1771 and causing the Plague Riot. The epidemic reshaped the map of Moscow, as new cemeteries were established beyond the 18th century city limits. Russian troops in Focsani, Moldova discovered first signs of plague in January 1770; the disease, indigenous to the area, was contracted through prisoners of war and booty. (Melikishvili, 2006) The news was hailed and exaggerated by adversaries of Russia. Commanding general von Stoffeln coerced army doctors to conceal the outbreak, which was not made public until Gustav Orreus, a Russian-Finnish surgeon reporting directly to Field Marshal Pyotr Rumyantsev, examined the situation, identified it as plague and enforced quarantine in the troops. Shtoffeln, however, refused to evacuate the infested towns and himself fell victim to the plague in May 1770. Of 1,500 patients recorded in his troops in May-August 1770, only 300 survived. [ (Melikishvili, 2006) ] Medical quarantine checkpoints instituted by Peter I and expanded by Catherine II were sufficient to prevent plague from reaching inside the country in......

...Learning and Information Services Guide to Proofreading What is Proofreading? Proofreading involves checking the content and appearance of your written work: looking for errors in typing, spelling and grammar, and ensuring that it is presented in a style that meets the requirements of a module or course. Proofreading is a skill that requires time, but the more you practice the quicker and easier it will become to spot any corrections that need to be made. Why is Proofreading important? Proofreading is an essential final stage of the essay writing process which should not be overlooked as a poorly presented piece of work can lose marks. After the effort of finding information and writing the essay, don’t lose marks by submitting a work spoiled by spelling and grammatical errors, or that does not adhere to your module’s requirements. A well-presented essay indicates to your tutor that you care about your work. Areas to check: Proofreading can be time-consuming and it is easy to underestimate the time required. It is a good idea to build in time for proofreading into your assignment plan. It is especially important that you follow any module requirements regarding referencing, line spacing, paragraph indentation, and margins, and that these are observed consistently and continuously. Checklist: Grammar | | check | spelling | Don’t rely on the spellchecker in Word - this won’t pick up “typos” as from/form or been/bean. Use a dictionary to check......
