My little niece, who is 11 and just gone up to Secondary School next week, like all kids has had 6 weeks off and left her home work till Friday night, three days before she goes back.

She phones up her Uncle Marky asking me as I have internet use, to look up major events that happened in 1992/94/96/97/98/02/03/04.

She says I have got till Monday, (I have been set homework deadline) as she goes back to School on Tuesday.

Now I love her to bits, but is she a cheeky sh1t or what?

Right, anyone know any sites, that list major events in years?, save me looking this up all night. I don't think she would appreciate major footballing events. Damn.

Great care should be excercised in using the internet for academic/educational research. Items and articles on the net are (generally) not peer reviewed and in a nutshell anyone can put any old tosh on there.

I.M, take your points on board, all I did was give her the year and the headline of the story. Like "Windsor Castle fire rages for 15 hours."

She will have to put the meat into the sandwich.

Beware of that at college/university level, UB. [even if you are joking]
Plagiarism is a "hanging offence" there. Instant dismissal.

Education authorities are calling for a reduction in the Coursework component of exam grades because of Net plagiarism....and a return to written exams.

The upswing being that boys may possibly begin redressing the superiority of girls in the grades' table, as traditionally and generally, males perform better in exam situations.

Invis is right btw. There's so much crap on the net masquerading as "academic research".
