    Social networking: How easy and how difficult?
    (The topic was once discussed on 19th August 2016)
     

    Every time you meet someone, you are networking. Every time you pick up the phone, you are networking. Every time you send an e-mail, you are networking. Every time you engage someone in conversation, you are networking. Every time you write a note, you are networking. Every time you attend a meeting or join a social club like Advance English club, you are networking.
    Yes, we are all networkers although some of us may be more effective than others; some may enjoy it more than others, and some do it with purpose while others only wander aimlessly through the process. The fact is like it or not, successful networking is essential for greater profits and increased business. Study the biography of any successful person and you can see how key relationships accelerated their growth.
    However, for many of us, it is not easy to develop a relationship from scratch especially when we want to connect with more successful and influential people. For people who are not naturally outgoing, things can be even more challenging. So, what should we do to become successful networkers? what are the best strategies to build a strong social network? Let’s join our discussion to explore the topic in detail.
    Questions for discussion:
    1. How many close friends do you have?
    2. Is it better to have few friends or many friends? How many good friends should a person have?
    3. What should shy people do to meet new friends or increase their social network?
    4. Situations:
    a. You want to get the attention of people who are more successful than you are. What should you do to network with those “celebrities” like a champ?
    b.You want to reach potential new clients or recruit new employees. What should you do to connect with them effectively?

    Plagiarism
    (The topic was once discussed on 20th January 2016)
     

    How do you study Vietnamese Literature Writing at school?
    Do you write creatively using your own words and express your own thought? Or do you use reference books, or sample writings as the “model”, then try to imitate the structures, the vocabulary, the expressions or the ideas of such writings?
    At schools in Vietnam, many students are given high scores if they have their works written in the same way as in reference books or sample writing. Therefore, it comes as no surprise if students copy sentences, paragraphs, or even the whole writing into their own writing without feeling guilty.
    Many students argue that “I did not open the book to copy the information during the test; I learnt it by heart, and only cited the sentences and paragraphs that I loved. It is not wrong”.
    What they are actually doing is called “Plagiarism”. Oxford Dictionary defines plagiarism as “to copy another person’s ideas, words or work and pretend that they are your own.”
    In the world, plagiarism is seriously judged. Plagiarism by students, professors, or researchers is considered academic dishonesty or academic fraud. In journalism, plagiarism is considered a breach of journalistic ethics, and reporters caught plagiarizing typically face disciplinary measures ranging from suspension to termination of employment. Recently, German’s defense minister was fired as she was accused of plagiarism in her Doctorate Thesis: she used many sentences, and paragraphs from other documents without citing the original sources.
     
    Questions to ponder:
    1. What is plagiarism?
    2. To what extend does plagiarism affect our daily life?
    3. How seriously should we judge plagiarism?
    4. How does the fact that school children are not giving appropriate guidance about plagiarism affect their behaviors and future work?
    5. How should we educate people in general and children in particular about plagiarism?
