Letters to Juliet A Project of Love for theLovelorn One of my preferred things that has been circumventing the web for quite a while is the EMO individual who posted, What if hes your Romeo, however youre not his Juliet? The exceptionally quick reaction was, That implies youre his Rosaline and you endure the mother truckin play. In spite of the truth of what befalls the star crossd sweethearts, the industriousness in considering them the sentimental perfect lives on. Could it be any more obvious? A great many people, even the individuals who have never perused or seen the play, are bound to evoke this picture, or something near it, than frightful passings: I didnt know, in any case, until I heard a story on NPRs Morning Edition yesterday, that men (for the most part, I surmise) have been writing letters to Juliet forÃ¢ centuries.Ã¢ Initially, not long after the plays exhibitions, individuals left notes at what was believed to be her burial chamber. The quantities of letters left turned out to be extraordinary to the point that the mail station of Verona set up an exceptional office to deal with the volume.Ã¢ The momentous thing about the letters left for Juliet is that she really answers.Ã Well, understudies for Juliet do.Ã Dozens of volunteers in Verona, who consider themselves The Juliet Club answer, by hand, every one of the 6,000+ letters routed to Shakespeares courageous woman every year. Ã All of the letters are held in a monstrous file, to which more letters are normally included. The activity must be intense however huge numbers of the volunteers have been grinding away for ten and twenty years, some significantly more. What do they say to these sorrowful individuals? Here would one say one is of their responses to somebody who was making herself insane asking, What if? What and If are two words as non-undermining as words can be. In any case, set up them next to each other and they have the ability to frequent you for a mind-blowing remainder: What if? What if? What if? I dont know how your story finished yet in the event that what you felt, at that point was genuine affection, at that point its never past the point of no return. On the off chance that it was valid, at that point, why wouldnt it be genuine at this point? You need just the mental fortitude to follow your heart. I dont comprehend what an adoration like Juliets feels like love to leave friends and family for, affection to cross seas for however Id like to accept in the event that I ever were to feel it, that I will have the boldness to hold onto it. Furthermore, Claire, in the event that you didnt, I trust one day that you will. All my affection, JulietÃ¢â¬ You can peruse progressively about the long history of the Juliet Project in Lise Friedmans study,Ã Ã Letters to Juliet: Celebrating Shakespeares Greatest Heroine, the Magical City of Verona, and the Power of Love

Sage (Salvia) has been used in traditional medicine as a spice and also as a way to improve health. It has a long history of use in Egypt, Rome, and Greek medicine, as well as within Native American healing traditions. As far as burning sage is concerned, dried sage is burned as a possible way to heal, protect, increase wisdom, and boost defense against disease. Verywell / Brianna Gilmartin Types of Sage What are the different types of sage? Sage is also known as common sage, garden sage, true sage, Spanish sage, and Chinese sage. The botanical term for common sage is Salvia officinalis. Benefits of Using Sage Internally Sage is used today for numerous purposes depending on the method of use. Sage used internally may be taken for any of the following purposes. Burning sage, also known as smudging, involves literally burning the sage leaves and letting the smoke purify the air in your home. Sage can also be taken internally as a liquid, spray, lozenge, capsule, or tablet. Note that while there is some research evidence to suggest the benefits of sage for each of these uses, it remains preliminary and more research is needed to define the benefits of sage for each of these purposes. Overall, it is thought that the phenolic and flavonoid compounds present in sage are helpful in terms of having an antioxidant effect and reducing free radicals. This is further thought to relate to the presence of rosmarinic acid and carnosic acid in sage. Below are some of the purported benefits of using sage internally. pain reliefreducing oxidative stress on the bodyprotecting against free radical damagereducing inflammationprotecting against bacterial and viral infectionstreating minor illnessesas a dietary supplement for digestionsore throat reliefprotecting against memory lossreducing depression or improving moodpreventing obesityfor chronic diseases such as diabetes, heart disease, cancer Benefits of Burning Sage The purpose of burning sage differs slightly from the reasons for taking it internally. The burning of sage is a historical spiritual ritual also known as smudging. Poor air quality may be linked to various health conditions. In this way, burning sage is seen as a cost-effective way to purify the air (to an extent). This is because sage is thought to have antimicrobial properties that help kill bacteria, viruses, and fungi. That being said, its important to keep in mind that burning sage will create smoke, which can cause health problems for individuals who are prone to asthma and other respiratory conditions. Just as with taking sage internally, Some practitioners of alternative medicine believe that burning sage can help to release so-called negative energy. In addition to burning sage, some people use a cleansing spray in their homes. Some of the purported benefits of burning sage include the following. removing bacteria from the airrepelling insectsimproving intuitionpurifying specific objectsimproving mood and reducing stress and anxiety Research on the Use of Sage for Mental Health Overall, not enough research has been conducted on the use of sage for its proposed benefits as they relate to mental health. Because of this, there is not clear support for its use for any mental health condition. However, based on preliminary research, there may be support for the use of sage for the following mental health-related purposes. One area in which there is specific preliminary support for the use of sage is that of mood and memory. A 2005 study showed that common sage improved memory and cognition (thinking ability). In addition, increased dosages were related to improvements in mood, and feeling alert, calm, and content. It has been suggested that sage has a protective effect against neurodegenerative diseases, such as Alzheimers, because of the active compounds it contains. 6 Herbal Teas That May Help Relieve Stress Safety of Using Sage Sage has been approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration for use as a spice or seasoning. In general, the use of sage for health purposes is recognized as safe. However, some species of sage contains thujone, which can have an effect on the nervous system. Twelve or more drops of sage oil is considered to be a toxic dose. Some potential side effects of extended use of sage include restlessness, rapid heart rate, vertigo, vomiting, kidney damage, seizures, and tremors. If you plan on using sage internally in addition to burning sage, it is important to let your doctor know (just as you should with any complementary medicines). As far as burning sage is concerned, it is generally safe to do so around children and pets, just as long as you are aware of any possible respiratory conditions the might have. Plus, they may not like the smell. How to Start Burning Sage Would you like to start burning sage in your home? If youre not yet dissuaded by the relative lack of evidence supporting such a practice, rest assured that there is little likelihood of any drawbacks associated with burning sage in your home. In other words, if you feel this practice might benefit your physical or mental health, then theres little reason to avoid taking part. Burning sage is relatively cost-effective as far as mental health practices go, and the benefit of trying something new cannot be denied. So, to get started with burning sage, or smudging as you might also hear it called, you will first need to find a source of your sage. Here you have a few different options: 1. You could purchase sage for burning online or in a health store. 2. You could purchase sage from a traditional healer or shaman. 3. You could grow your own sage with the purpose of drying it for burning. Trim the sage rather than pulling it out by the root. Do not cut stems from the plant until you are sure that it is able to sustain itself and will not die after you cut it. After cutting the sage, gather it in a bundle, tie it, and hang it in a dry place. It is dry enough when it crackles when squeezed. As a beginner, your best bet is to purchase a pre-wrapped bundle or stick of white sage as this will be easier to handle. Traditional users of sage believe that intentions matter when burning sage. For this reason, you should always purchase sage from someplace or from someone you trust. Regardless of which route you choose for obtaining your sage, the basic steps for burning sage in your home will be the same. Steps for Burning Sage 1. You will need something in which to burn the sage. This could be an incense tray or a bowl to catch the ashes as the sage burns. You could also purchase a sage burner. Fill it with earth or sand. Dont use a flammable container and keep water on hand. 2. Open a window or door before you start burning the sage. This allows the smoke to exit your house. 3. Put the sage in the burning container and light it. Let it burn for several seconds and then blow it out so that it keeps smoking. If it stops emitting smoke, try lighting it again. 4. If you are using the sage for spiritual purposes, set an intention for what you are doing. This is kind of like saying that you are starting a new beginning. For example, you might say Let this be the day that changes start to take place. 5. Walk to each room you wish to purify and let the smoke enter it. Do not allow any space to fill with too much smoke. Avoid inhaling the smoke directly. A Word From Verywell Burning sage has a long history and may be helpful to you for starting a spiritual practice or starting fresh. It may be particularly helpful if you are struggling with a transition or wanting to feel good about the positive things you are doing for your home or physical health. However, if you are living with symptoms of severe mood problems or anxiety, it is unlikely that burning sage will help. In this case, it is important to consult your doctor in addition to engaging in a complementary health practice such as burning sage.

Question: Discuss about the Importance Of Giving Appropriate Credit To Others When Writing Up Ones Own Work. Answer: During preparation of a research or any other document, one may need to check and extract information from some others work. However, it is required to acknowledge the source of the information or it will be considered as plagiarism. Plagiarism is defined as using some others work without acknowledgement as ones own word. Plagiarism is a criminal offense that can lead to serious consequences that can lead to law suits, penalties or even jail time. Academic institutions like colleges and universities around the world have taken several steps to stop such crime. These steps include cancellation of the examination paper, deduction of marks or even expulsion of the student from the university. Academic honesty is a principal part of learning and instructing and a center estimation of various universities all around the globe. The universities take the view that all academic dishonesty is inadmissible and this arrangement plans to maintain the gauges of morals and trustworthiness encapsul ated in the understudy sanctions and expected of all students. The universities expect to deliver graduates with solid moral establishments equipped for applying the standards of scholarly honesty at universities and past in their expert and individual lives. The universities mean to show students the standards of academic honesty and give the aptitudes and assets required for fruitful learning. Academic dishonesty undermines the universities' center esteems and the learning knowledge (Adelaide.edu.au 2017). However, before exploring the act of plagiarism, it needs to be known the importance of acknowledging ones work with proper credits. When one particular individual or researcher publishes a particular work, it requires him to conduct extensive research through long period of time (months, years or even decades). Hence, he deserves his credit for all the work he has done throughout the research period. However, if someone uses his work and presents it as his own, that will not on ly be injustice to the researcher but also a significant crime. One individual is definitely allowed use the help of the work of other researchers during his own research and he may even quote that reference literature in his work. However, it is important that he must acknowledge the writer of the literature by using suitable references and in-text citations. He can also prepare a separate paragraph in the beginning of the paper to acknowledge all the literature writers from which he has taken help from. Moreover, he also needs to write the theories or research data in his words rather than the ones used by the original writer. Before publishing the paper, the individual must ensure suitable acknowledgements and credits have been given to the original researcher (Ams.org 2017). This is also applicable in the professional field where some people use someone elses ideas and use it as their own for their personal gain like promotion. This is simply not acceptable as this will hamper t he professional progress of the individual with the original idea. Hence, it is important to give appropriate credit to others when writing up ones own work. References Adelaide.edu.au. (2017).University Policies | Academic Honesty Policy.
