I am sinking,
What life I […]

According to a quote found at brainyquote.com, Jeffrey Gitomer says, “Your grammar is a reflection of your image. Good or bad, you have made an impression. And like all impressions, you are in total control.” When you know most of the grammar rules, you are in […]

I remember the evening being terribly cold and windy – a typical Minnesotan winter – when I had the chance to visit the University of Northwestern in St. Paul to hear their first cohort of nursing students share their cross-cultural experiences. Seated on a comfortable chair […]
