McCain Urges Trump To Support Wiretapping Claims

(March 07, 2017) –  United States Senator John McCain urges President Donald Trump to publicize the evidence backing up his claim that the previous Obama administration had wiretapped him while investigating the influence of Russia in the recently concluded 2016 National Election.

The Republican Senator McCain said in an interview he thinks the United States president must come forward with the information that would indicate the past administration wiretapped Trump Tower. Meanwhile, Jason Chaffetz, head of the U.S. House of Representatives Oversight and Government Reform Committee, and also a Republican lawmaker, said that he had not seen anything that would directly back up the claim of the president.

Likewise, Republican Senator Lindsey Graham said the panel would inquire about both the Director James Comey of the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Justice Department if he had shared information with the law enforcement agency to oppose the wiretapping claim by President Trump. Senator Graham is the head of the Senate Judiciary subcommittee that looks into the reports that Russia interfered with the election.

On Monday, the White House alleged that President Trump still supports Comey, even if he is confident in challenging Trump’s allegations that the previous administration of Barack Obama had conducted wiretapping. When asked if Trump still believed Comey, Sean Spicer, the White House Spokesman, said that there is nothing that Trump told him would make him believe there are any differences that what it was before.

Spicer further added he was almost 100 percent certain Trump did not speak with Comey since the president made the claims via Twitter. He is not aware that it happened. But when asked during an interview with “Good Morning America” whether or not the president accepted Comey’s allegations, Sarah Huckabee, the White House spokeswoman said she does not think he does. On the other hand, the FBI has failed to comment on communications by Comey.

President Trump did not present any evidence to his claim that the Trump Tower was wiretapped. The claim is the most recent twist in a controversy surrounding the relationship between Trump associates and Russia, which determined his presidency’s early days.

However, the allegations of wiretapping took a hit on the U.S. stock market. Some investors are reluctant that the claims could distract Trump from his economic platform of the introduction of tax cuts and streamlining regulations that has fueled a record-inducing rally on Wall Street since the election. The proposals of Trump are still lacking details, which made investors ask whether the president’s post-election rally is already in motion.

University Students Could Face Fines, Criminal Records For Buying Plagiarized Essays Online

(February 23, 2017) –  New proposals suggest that university students who purchase essays online could face fines and criminal records. The government is seriously considering plans to eradicate plagiarism.

This means that students who will be caught cheating could likely be criminalized. This is in the middle of the growing “essay generating” industry threatening to compromise the quality of a particular British university degree. Just last month, it was reported that more than 20,000 students at British universities are willing to pay up to £6,750 for ready-made essays to get a degree.

The Department of Education is now teaming it with universities to trace students who cheat on their essays. It is currently consulting on numerous proposals with higher education departments about the possibilities of fines, being blacklisted academically and even pressing criminal records for students who submit essays written by professionals.

In particular, the universities regulator Quality Assurance Agency is working with the government and is also advocating the new laws. A spokeswoman for the Department of Education shared the Government was all ears to every proposal. She added that a change or revision in the law was something worth considering in the future.

She said it is truly something that could be in the guidance, and they are not ruling out any chance in legislation along the way. The new guidance she was referring to will be implemented in September, which will coincide with the start of the succeeding academic year.

The Extent Of Ready-Made Essays And Dissertations Online

Last month, over 20,000 students were believed to have bought ready-made dissertations and essays from essay-generating websites. For a PhD dissertation, a student can pay up to £6,750. In addition, the volume of students who are using essay-generating websites has significantly increased in the last five years. According to the Quality Assurance Agency, it is confirmed that over 100 essay services online are by now up and running.

Even if the universities are using advanced software for anti-plagiarism to detect any copied academic texts, “contract cheating” still renders markers and examiners powerless in the prevention of plagiarism. Contract cheating is a way when a student makes use of a third party to generate original academic work. It usually involves payments that could go up to hundreds.
As a result, students avoid the plagiarism checkers of their universities. Today, there are hundreds of websites offering ready-made dissertation and essay writing services. These services work under the idea that no students must submit their products and claim it as their own work. But the exact opposite is happening, because in reality, thousands of students are claiming to be the authors of these ready-made essays and dissertations.
