Your Questions About Paper Trading Online

Ken asks…

One-I lost a book from my schools library. Two- I can’t find it online?!!!?

Okay so it’s the first day I noticed it was missing. I was confident it was in my bag. Sure of it. But when i took it out to read it, it wasn’t there. I went frantic and searched everywhere in my house so it might be at school.
Second, If I can’t find it (with my luck I probably won’t) and want to replace it, I can’t because I can’t find it online. It’s not an old book really. It’s probably a early 2000’s book. I think it was called “Noah’s Secrets” BUT I CANT FIND IT ANYWHERE. So please help me find the book online and please tell me how to tell the librarian. I can easily trade in the book for 3 other books. A new hard-cover and two newish paperbacks. So 3 birds with one stone? Heh. If they’ll let me.

It was a paper back, tore a little here and there. The book had a face of brunette girl, with freckles brown eyes I think. With a Giant wave and fire on the corners. 🙂 If you could find it on amazon that would be cool. If you find its existence anywhere that would be nice as well.
I found it online. It’s called the Noah Confessions.
-.- So how do I replace it at school then?

John answers:

Talk to the librarian, explain that you lost the book and offer the replacement. Every library has a different procedure for replacing lost books, so just ask what to do. It happens all the time, don’t worry. The librarian will be happy that you told the truth and offered the replacement.

Richard asks…

Do I write a paper or a paragraph or what?

After closely reading (highlighting, underlining, writing in the margins, etc.) this document document what the early Viriginia colony saw as potential trade items. Why did they choose to highlight certain things over others? If the indigenous people had written such a document what would THEY have considered “commodities”?

I dont know what she means, this is an online college class. what am I supposed to write? I haven’t been in school in years, I feel a little dumb having to ask. I know what to write, just not what format

John answers:

You should be able to email or message the instructor of guidance on the format of the assignment. Ask approximately how long (word count, or paragraphs, or pages of a certain spacing) the teacher expects the assignment to be.

She is probably expecting you to write a few sentences of introduction, a few paragraphs where each pertains to one or another of the main points you will address, and a few sentences of conclusion.

Last I was in college, the thing they liked was “the standard five paragraph essay” where the introduction introduced the topic, and briefly explained how the main points were connected. Then there are three supporting paragraphs, each going into a main point in more detail. Then there’s the conclusion, reiterating the main point and tying the information together, and sometimes introducing additional avenues for further thought, or asking a deeper question (such as the importance of the role of context and history in determining what people different people might perceive as commodity items). All paragraphs are connected by linking words.

This structure doesn’t help me write, and I hate it with passion, but it’s what teachers expect, and how the GRE is graded as well.

What did the early Virginia colony see as potential trade items anyway? I’d guess furs, until they got to planting, at which point wasn’t the focus industrial hemp?

George Washington’s agricultural notes indicate that some of the hemp he grew, he harvested at a time which made it unsuitable for industrial purposes, and only realistically suitable for psychoactive recreational ones.

Hadn’t the Indians in the area already been trading furs to the French for years at this point?

Lisa asks…

Any tips on how a 13 year old can earn money?

I don’t want to babysit (because I already do that at home everyday), Our neighborhood gets its lawn mowed by the community (We’re by the city’s golf course) and I don’t know if they shovel as well, so I might do that in the winter. We don’t have a paper route either and I don’t want to open a lemonade stand.

My neighborhood basically has a lot of retired elderly (As I said, there’s a golf course for them). I’m good at organizing (I like to organize stuff to alphabetical, sorting it in groups, etc), I can’t tutor since my school is 6-12 and I’m in 8th grade (going to). I know a lot about the computer and I’m currently learning computer programming so that might get me somewhere when I’m older. I already get the money from trading bottles and cans in at the bottle depot and my parents give me $20 a school week for my lunch money/chore pay which I save.

I also draw and I’m getting better. (I’m planning on doing commissions for people so I can earn money when I’m good at it). I also write a lot of stories (Maybe I can make a story book) My parents and I plan on me working at Tim Hortons when I turn 14, but until then, what jobs do you think I can do? I’d like it if it includes organizing something, painting/drawing/writing something or it includes me going on the computer (No Facebook, Twitter, online earning sites, etc please. I’m not into those type of sites)

John answers:

Just ask around the neighborhood for small jobs to do, you’re too young to be working a real job.
