Question and answer
Summarize the information on interest rates.
In day to day conversation we tend to hear references to "the interest rate". This is somewhat misleading, as in an economy there are dozens if not hundreds of rates interest between borrowers and lenders. [ The differences in rates can be due to the duration of the loan or the perceived riskiness of the borrower. To learn more about the different types of interest rates, see What's the
Difference Between all the Interest Rates in the Newspaper? Nominal Interest Rates vs. Real Interest Rates Note that when people discuss interest rates, they're generally talking about nominal interest rates. A nominal variable, such as a nominal interest rate, is one where the effects of inflation have not been accounted for. Changes in the nominal interest rate often move with changes in the inflation rate, as lenders not only have to be compensated for delaying their consumption, they also must be compensated for the fact that a dollar will not buy as much a year from now as it does today. Real interest rates are interest rates where inflation has been accounted for ]

Imagine that you are teaching an ESL (English as a second language) student about how to use who and whom. Provide an explanation to make it easy for him or her to understand the concept. Provide at least three examples using each pronoun.
Weegy: Grammatically, 'who' can be used as subject or object, though a traditional grammarian will tell you to use it in subject position only. [ 'whom' on the other hand can ONLY be used in object position, it is ungrammatical to use it in subject. (If you don't understand subject and object, look them up in a dictionary under their linguistic definition, or better yet look it up in a grammar dictionary.) Of course, no ESL kid will get that. You could try something like "who does something to whom", which demonstrates the positions, but this is something many native English speakers don't get, and is one of those nuances better left alone. If they just use who, they should be fine in most situations anyway. ] (More)

Academic writing standards generally condemn the use of first- and second-person pronouns such as I, me, my, you, and your. Why do you think this is the case?
Weegy: Although first and second place pronouns are not 100% forbidden in academic writing, it is true that students are encouraged to avoid them. [ [ Why? The main reasons are what they do to tone of voice and how the second person pronoun can miss the targeted audience. Both first and second person pronouns have an informal tone of voice. With first person pronouns, the writer is referring to herself directly ("I did this" "my reason is"). And while an informal tone of voice isn't in any way "wrong" or "illegal," it often doesn't match the writing situation in an high school or college class. Most students are not being asked to write personal narratives; they're being asked to write arguments, often researched arguments, in which personal stories are subordinate to actual researched evidence. Of course, if the student decides it would be effective to include a personal story as well, then first person pronouns are appropriate for that section of the paper. Second person pronouns are even more problematic. If a writer uses them, the writer is now speaking directly to the person reading the paper. Again, that's fine in a letter or email, but it usually doesn't match the writing assignment scenario in a classroom. The student isn't writing directly to a teacher ("when you look at the stars...."); the student is writing to a broader audience that includes the teacher, the other students, and any other reader who is interested in the topic. So an academic writer who uses "you" is often mistaken about who his audience is. And, to stretch the point a little further, if the student mistakenly thinks that he's talking directly to an audience and uses "you," he can end up writing some funny or even offensive sentences. For example, in an academic research paper about the death penalty, he shouldn't say "When you murder a child....." He should say, "When a person murders a child...." He shouldn't accuse his reader of being a child murderer! ] (More)

Why is good communication important?
Weegy: Effective communication is important in an organization because it creates mutual understanding environment between the management and employees. Directly, it also helps in increasing the employee's productivity. [ Clear speech is important so the other person/people can understand what you are saying. If it is written information i believe it should include facts as well as opinions so it is not biased. It should be formal and simple to read. Your Audience are the people who will read this so think of how they would see it and work from there. it gives a sense of direcction to the workers as they now understand what they are to achieve through good communication staff motivation especially a two way communication ideas from workers who are closer to action it reduces the rate at which wokers react to changes ] (More)

Students are often confused about the use of the words good and well in their writing why?
Weegy: The confusion between good and well comes from their similar meanings, and a general confusion between adjectives and adverbs. [ Take a moment to think about what the word is modifying: if it's a verb, you'd do well to use well; otherwise, the good choice is good. ] (More)
