5 Reasons Why You Need an Essay Writing Service

More than 60% of students use essay writing services or have used them before. Professors often say that it happens because students are not diligent enough and prefer browsing through the Internet to writing papers and spending time in libraries. Though in some cases it might be true, in general, there is another reason for this — students are overwhelmed with the assignments, and as the cost of education is rather significant, no one wants to lose a year or a semester not finishing some particular course. Students don’t receive enough support from professors and supervisors and look for some external help once in awhile. We have gathered some feedback and came up with 5 reasons for you to address an essay writing service. 

Reason #1: You Need More Night Sleep

More than 20% of the American population and more than 35% of the world population suffer from insomnia and sleep deprivation. Sleep deprivation causes weight gain, depression, inability to deal with creative tasks, irritation, etc. Being snowed under the variety of complicated tasks, you sleep less than needed and work worse than you are capable of. To compensate this, you try to work on your assignments even more, sleep even less, and get into a dead circle that truly harms you. Ordering several papers from a custom writing agency you receive an opportunity to rest and please, use this opportunity wisely and truly relax. 

Reason #2: You Need Expert Written Sample

It is difficult to learn something practical using textbooks. Some of them are truly good and interesting, but often they are not applicable to the particular situation. Getting a well-thought-out sample written and formatted according to your professor’s demands you understand the principles of essay writing much better and get closer to your dream grades. Use it as a model for your future papers and you won’t regret it. 

Reason #3: You Need to Live Your Life Sometimes

Most of the HR specialists mention that they value soft skills and some professional experience much more than just good grades and professor’s recommendations. It is important to enter internships, have side jobs, have friends and spend some spare time on hobbies. Living your life makes you happy, makes this life worth living. Of course, we don’t suggest you start partying all day long letting a custom writing agency do your work. However, you need some extra time, and you can buy it.

Reason #4: You Need Good Grades

Let’s say so, you don’t need just good grades, you need grades good enough not to get in trouble with your professor in particular and educational institution in general. You have to receive that diploma and move forward. You can’t be good in everything at the same time, so you can choose your priorities, and give the rest of assignments “to outsource.” It is precisely how it is done in the real world. 

Reason #5: You Need to Be Competitive 

Most of your peer students address writing companies for help, and not doing so you might become much less competitive. This competition is not fair, and sometimes is entirely unnecessary, but it is real, and if you want to take part in it, you should assess your chances realistically. 

You have to stay on the safe side when ordering a custom essay online. Every essay writing service claims to be safe and professional, but you should pay attention to the details when choosing your online assistant. As it is not the best choice to start asking such questions within the campus, we suggest you deal with this task on your own. 

  • Get to know if the price is stable and there are no extra payments after the final draft is ready;
  • Check the guarantees offered by the particular writing service;
  • Look for testimonials;
  • Check if the support service truly works around-the-clock.

Some students try 3-4 writing services before they find a suitable one, but they say that recently the overall quality and safety of such companies has significantly increased. Once you have found a suitable agency, stick to it, as most of the services offer rather pleasant discounts to returning clients. Consider custom written essays as an opportunity to learn something new and strengthen your skills. Good luck!

COLLEGE STUDENTS × HOMELESSNESS

For the fifth year in row, the #RealCollege survey has documented a crisis affecting American higher education. Researchers conclude that more than 6 million students are affected by food and/or housing insecurity.

The #RealCollege survey is led by the Hope Center for College, Community, and Justice at Temple University.  In 2019, the survey was completed by more than 167,000 students at 227 community colleges and four-year colleges and universities located in 44 states and the District of Columbia.

A remarkable 17% of students who answered the survey were homeless at some point in the last year, almost 40% were food insecure, and almost half faced housing insecurity.  The results are consistent with the prior #RealCollege surveys and those led by other researchers around the nation.

“It is clear that college is now about serious financial struggles, not partying.  Money weighs heavily on students’ minds, and without a safe place to sleep and enough to eat they cannot concentrate on learning,” said Dr. Sara Goldrick-Rab, founding director of the Hope Center and the leading expert on basic needs insecurity among college students. “This is a waste of talent and it undermines our economy. To become student-ready, colleges need to move beyond food pantries and take preventative measures, and policymakers must support them. There are six pieces of federal legislation to address these issues pending in Congress now—it is time to act!”

Among the 167,000 respondents in this year’s survey:

·      39% were food insecure in the last 30 days;

·      46% were housing insecure in the previous year;

·      17% were homeless in the previous year; and

·      Some groups of students were more at risk than others: community college students, racial/ethnic minorities, and LGBTQ students were all more likely than others to face one or more of these challenges

This year’s response rate of 167,000 students represents about 8% of the total number of students contacted for the survey, according to the Hope Center.  “We think these are conservative estimates of the true extent of the problem, since students without funds rarely have time to do surveys or access to the necessary technology for e-surveys like this one,” said Christine Baker-Smith, Managing Director of the Hope Center. “We don’t advertise the survey as focused on food or housing, and do not offer any help.”  The Hope Center’s research team estimates that that the figures extrapolate to at least 6 million affected students.

There are many interconnected reasons college students are facing basic needs insecurity today, according to the report. Some of these are:

·      Tuition is up, but more importantly, financial aid to students has not kept up with the cost of living;

·      Students are being asked to pay for books and tuition but lack the financial support the system demands—many students today are themselves parents or are supporting other family members;

·      Employers are less likely to want to hire students since they may have complicated schedules, and for the students who can find flexible work, the minimum wage has not kept up with cost of living increases;

·      Th social safety net is not what it used to be—today, many college students are excluded from programs such as SNAP, for example; and

·      College themselves are struggling with insufficient money to help students in need. For example, in public higher education, budgets have been cut 25% on a per-student basis over the last 30 years.

Because the problem stems from many different avenues, the solutions are multi-pronged as well. The first step, according to the report, is for colleges and universities to admit there is a problem. The Hope Center is offering to support any institution that wants to address these problems; they can sign up here.  Among the programs the report describes that have helped at campuses across the U.S.:

·      Meal vouchers or swipes;

·      Access to public benefits, such as SNAP, or transportation/housing assistance;

·      Emergency aid that students can access quickly, for unforeseen expenses like car repairs or groceries;

·      Case management, so the students have a contact on campus who can help them navigate the help available to them.

In 2020, the Hope Center plans to release the following reports that focus on different college student populations and aspects of student life:

·      March 24: Student Athletes 

·      April TBA: Staff and Faculty

·      April 8: Parenting Students

·      April 13Philadelphia

·      May 13: Transportation

·      May TBA: Mental Health

DISNEY’S ZOMBIES 2

Walt Disney Records is set to release the soundtrack for the Disney Channel Original Movie “ZOMBIES 2,” the sequel to the #1 cable TV telecast of 2018 with Kids and Girls 6-11 and Tweens and Girls 9-14. Featuring original songs performed by the cast, the soundtrack will be available on Friday, February 14, in conjunction with the movie’s premiere on Disney Channel (8:00 p.m. EST/PST) and DisneyNOW. 

The “ZOMBIES 2” music spans the cheerleaders’ pop beats, the zombies’ hip-hop flow, and the werewolves’ world beat style in nine original songs and one reprise of the “Zombies” hit “Someday.” Four songs were written by Rock Mafia (the team that wrote and produced the hit “Queen of Mean” for “Descendants 3”). The first single and companion music video, “We Got This,” co-written and produced by Mitch Allan (“Descendants 2”) are available now. “The New Kid in Town” performed by Baby Ariel will be available January 31. The score was composed by George S. Clinton (“ZOMBIES”) and Amit May Cohen (“Wrestling Za’atari” documentary).

The “ZOMBIES 2” soundtrack, set for release from Walt Disney Records on February 14, 2020, is now available for physical and digital pre-orderpre-save at Spotify and pre-add at Apple Music. The “ZOMBIES Complete Playlist” can be heard HERE.

About “ZOMBIES 2”

Set in the newly united town of Seabrook, “ZOMBIES 2” resumes the story as cheerleader Addison and zombie football player Zed are readying for Seabrook High’s Prawn, the school’s supersized prom. But when a group of mysterious teenage werewolves, led by Willa, Wyatt and Wynter, unexpectedly arrive in search of an ancient life source buried somewhere in Seabrook, a fearful city council reenacts Seabrook’s anti-monster laws making it impossible for Zed and Addison to attend Prawn together. Determined to keep their plan to be the first zombie/cheerleader couple to go to the prom, Zed runs for school president against cheer captain, Bucky, in order to change the rules. While Zed launches into his campaign, Addison is drawn into the werewolves’ circle sensing this might be where she finally fits in. Fearing he might lose Addison to the werewolf pack, Zed sabotages Addison’s effort to find out if she really belongs amongst them. When his deception is revealed and Addison confronts the truth about her identity, zombies, cheerleaders and werewolves all discover the real meaning of community and acceptance.

“ZOMBIES 2” star’s Milo Manheim (ABC’s “Dancing with the Stars”) and actress/recording artist Meg Donnelly (ABC’s “American Housewife”), reprising their singing/dancing/acting roles as star-crossed couple Zed and Addison, whose endearing love story illustrates that being your best self is the truest way to find happiness and belonging.

Also reprising their roles are Trevor Tordjman as Bucky, Kylee Russell as Eliza, Carla Jeffery as Bree, James Godfrey as Bonzo and Kingston Foster as Zoey. Joining the cast are Chandler Kinney as Willa, Pearce Joza as Wyatt and Ariel Martin (Baby Ariel) as Wynter.

LOLA YOUNG

Lola Young, the 18-year-old South London artist recently hailed as “a rising star” by MTV UK, has signed with Capitol Records in the U.S. Today, she shared the official music video for “3rd of Jan,” a track from her debut EP, Intro. Directed by Balan Evans, the intimate clip captures Young alone in her dressing room, singing and dancing along to the track with abandon. View “3rd of Jan” HERE.

A song about past love, future love and love that maybe isn’t meant to be, “3rd of Jan” was written by Young and produced by Two Inch Punch (Rex Orange County, Kali Uchis, Sam Smith).

Young explains, “I wrote this song the day before my birthday. It is a song about many things all in one, and about being ‘too much for anyone.’ I think this video is a raw, honest interpretation of how I act and how I am before I get ready to perform.”

Available HERE, the seven-track Intro also includes “6 Feet Under” and “Blind Love.” An atmospheric, piano-driven song about pulling oneself out of depression, “6 Feet Under” was penned by Young and co-produced by Al Shux (Lana Del Rey, Kendrick Lamar, JAY-Z). In its first week of release, the track received more than 100,000 Spotify plays, including UK & US New Music Friday placement. Streams now top 450,000. British GQ hailed “6 Feet Under” as a “sultry pop banger” and Clash Magazine praised it as “touching [and] honest.” Young earned early support from BBC Radio 1’s Annie Mac and will perform at Mac’s AMP London 2020 in March.Drawing on a unique gift for writing songs that encapsulate and explore the human condition, Young turns extremely personal emotions into songs that resonate with universal truths. She began writing music at age 11. She won the 2015 Open Mic competition in the UK, beating over 9,000 acts with the original song “Never Enough.” Young is a recent graduate of the Brit School, whose alumni include Amy Winehouse, Adele, Freya Ridings, FKA Twigs, Jade Bird, Jessie J, Leona Lewis, Loyle Carner and Rex Orange County.

Reebok – Tom & Jerry

Today, Reebok, in partnership with Warner Bros. Consumer Products, debuted its highly anticipated collaboration with beloved television cartoon series, Tom & Jerry. The result: a footwear and apparel collection for adults, kids and toddlers that unites Reebok’s iconic styles and Tom & Jerry’s’ classic, Saturday-morning cartoon heritage, available online and at select retailers worldwide beginning February 15th. 
 
Hero to the collection are four footwear styles that provoke Tom & Jerry’s long-standing fun-loving rivalry:
 
Instapump Fury x Tom ($200): Bold and aggressive like the conniving feline, the Instapump Fury x Tom is designed with a cold grey upper and fleece material mimicking fur, with cartoon yellow hits throughout. Its fast design and THE PUMP technology are ideal for chasing down clever rodents. Also available in Versa Pump ($50) for toddlers.

Club C Revenge x Jerry ($100): Simple yet versatile like the witty mouse, the Club C Revenge x Jerry features a soft suede tan upper with pink and yellow hits throughout – an ode to Jerry’s monochrome mouse cave. Also available in toddler ($50), preschool ($65) and grade school ($70) sizing.

Club C x Tom & Jerry ($100): For fans who don’t pick sides, or those who simply love the show, two additional Club C x Tom & Jerry models highlight the cartoon in its entirety. The first is designed with a paper white upper, all-over cartoon sketch graphics and asymmetric sock liners featuring Tom & Jerry logos and character graphics. This style is also available in toddler ($50), preschool ($65) and grade school  ($70) sizing. The second – a subtle chalk and quiet pink colorway – features visual animations and sound FX graphics on each heal, while the “Tom & Jerry” logo replaces the “Reebok” wordmark on the upper window box.

The pack also features a robust and playful collection of unisex apparel for kids and adults, including a Reebok x Tom & Jerry padded woven jacket ($140), short-sleeve t-shirts ($28), a hooded dress ($60), crew neck sweaters ($55), and hoodies ($60). Each piece is inspired by Tom & Jerry cartoon colorways and the collection’s matching footwear styles.

World's AIDS Day, szemui ho, 360 MAGAZINE

Youth Against AIDS

Youth Against AIDS and AXA announce a collaboration to build a prevention platform for the young generation

On occasion of World AIDS Day 2019 Youth Against AIDS (YAA) and AXA announced a collaboration to support YAA´s efforts to create a comprehensive sexual health and prevention platform for the young generation.

Digital tools and technical innovations are creating new opportunities in the fight against sexually transmitted diseases. This is especially true for prevention amongst young people. YAA and AXA use the advantages of the omnipresence of smartphones and growing demand of digital services to reach young people regardless of location or time. The platform, called FAQ YOU, includes a chatbot to answer the most common and pressing questions about sexual health and sexually transmitted diseases (FAQs) 24/7. The beta version of the chatbot will be launched in the US. Further tools will be integrated into the platform which will give  young users guidance to services like conducting HIV tests, finding an STI clinic or condom dispensers or getting in touch with medical services via tele medicine. The platform aims to complement personal counseling services, which are often unavailable for young people, at at later stage.

“Today, we see many silos in the sexual health sector. It remains a challenge for our generation to access credible content, get the right answers on demand and to access youth-friendly services. We want to change this by creating a digital one-stop-shop solution for all needs on sexual health and  education that meet the needs of our young target group. We believe that we need more innovation in prevention and FAQ YOU will be our answer to push these topics and to make a difference in the life of young people. We are grateful for the commitment of AXA that enables us to use modern technologies to help our generation to live healthier lives.”

Daniel Nagel, CEO Youth against AIDS 

“The partnership with Youth Against AIDS is very exciting for AXA – with this initiative we support YAA to evolve from a communication and awareness channel for youth to a digital source of health related content and services on sexual health and other taboo topics. We bring our expertise in emerging technologies and data while remaining true to our commitment to health and disease prevention.”
