This book inspires us in analyzing assertiveness of arguments in a debate setting. By using Haiidayan's mood and modality analysis, this book reveals the argument in debating, which is the heart of critical thinking, is represented through the extensive use of the declarative mood, median probability, extension conjunctions, questions and commands in declarative, explicitly subjective modality, and the realization of metaphorical explicit subjective modality. In addition, the level of assertiveness is measured through the total number of declarative mood, conjunctive adjunct, high value of modality, explicit subjective modality, and explicit subjective modality metaphor. The study also found that the level of assertiveness relatively depends on how the students deliver their arguments. Therefore, the students might need a variety of ways in order to make their argument sound more assertive. It is evident that mood and modality analysis is helpful to understand the interpersonal meaning of debating from a new perspective, which elaborates the subtleties of language use in debating and helps us have a better understanding of it.
With her brother Thomas injured on the battlefront in the Colonies, orphaned Cecilia Harcourt has two unbearable choices: move in with a maiden aunt or marry a scheming cousin. Instead, she chooses option three and travels across the Atlantic, determined to nurse her brother back to health. But after a week of searching, she finds not her brother but his best friend, the handsome officer Edward Rokesby. He's unconscious and in desperate need of her care, and Cecilia vows that she will save this soldier's life, even if staying by his side means telling one little lie... I TOLD EVERYONE I WAS YOUR WIFE When Edward comes to, he's more than a little confused. The blow to his head knocked out three months of his memory, but surely he would recall getting married. He knows who Cecilia Harcourt is—even if he does not recall her face—and with everyone calling her his wife, he decides it must be true, even though he'd always assumed he'd marry his neighbor back in England. IF ONLY IT WERE TRUE... Cecilia risks her entire future by giving herself—completely—to the man she loves. But when the truth comes out, Edward may have a few surprises of his own for the new Mrs. Rokesby.

Compared to the recent development trends noticeable internationally in the realm of economic regulation of air transportation, that of Mauritius seems archaic. For several years, and until now, the air access policy has been crafted to maintain a high-end tourist market target and advantage the local carrier, Air Mauritius. Yet, Mauritius is opening its skies, or rather liberalising its air services agreements. Upon cabinet decision, the Government of Mauritius commissioned the NACO B.V. for a consultancy report and their recommendations were endorsed as a master-plan to liberalisation in 2005. However the progress made so far has been criticised. This book contain my appreciation of the liberalisation process of the country. I do not concur with certain recommendations of the Masterplan, as I believe that the reasonings do not take into consideration certain socio-economic and environmental imperatives of the country, and seem too protective towards the local carrier. I reiterate these recommendations and make further ones I deem essential for the sustainable development of the industry and ensure a controlled liberalisation.

“Hot sex, looking good, scoring journalistic triumphs . . . nothing made Alyssa love herself enough until she learned to cook. There's a racy plot and a surprising moral in this intimate and delicious book.” --Gael Greene, creator of Insatiable-Critic.com and author of Insatiable: Tales from a Life of Delicious ExcessApron Anxiety is the hilarious and heartfelt memoir of quintessential city girl Alyssa Shelasky and her crazy, complicated love affair with...the kitchen. Three months into a relationship with her TV-chef crush, celebrity journalist Alyssa Shelasky left her highly social life in New York City to live with him in D.C. But what followed was no fairy tale: Chef hours are tough on a relationship. Surrounded by foodies yet unable to make a cup of tea, she was displaced and discouraged. Motivated at first by self-preservation rather than culinary passion, Shelasky embarked on a journey to master the kitchen, and she created the blog Apron Anxiety (ApronAnxiety.com) to share her stories. This is a memoir (with recipes) about learning to cook, the ups and downs of love, and entering the world of food full throttle. Readers will delight in her infectious voice as she dishes on everything from the sexy chef scene to the unexpected inner calm of tying on an apron.
This novel is a semi travelogue, semi diary. It holds in it several of my personal relationships with the people I met on my travels and descriptive passages of the places I saw. It is direct, to the point with no frills added to depict the essential simplicity of the human heart.So it affirmed my view that Contrary to popular belief the world abounds with good people some of whom I was lucky enough to meet and spend time with.Rambally’s patriotism for the country she has never seen , Aron’s honesty, the florist’s graciousness, Nasir’s friendship that crossed all territorial borders, Peter’s punctuality and Daniel’s drive to make ends meet, to succeed all touched me to the bottom of my heart, changed me and I hope made me a better and wiser man. St.Lucia’s exquisite beauty and colorful carnivals, Thailand’s floating markets, Singapore’s cleanliness, Malawi’s warm hearted people, Belgium’s hospitality, Dominica’s natural beauty, Guyana the mini-India and Dominica’s pretty ginger lilies swept me off my feet and made me fall in love with the world all over again. I believe there are no black, white or brown people only good or bad people.
