Prawda czy Fałsz? na maturze
Wardrobers wear clothes countless times before getting a refund? Nearly 70 per cent of American retailers admitted they have been victims of unscrupulous buyers. As a result, the retail industry loses over $8 billion a year. The question arises: is that a theft? Anita Naik from VoucherCodes.co.uk in her research reveals that „over a quarter of women who admit to wardrobing feel guilty about it, but the pressure to look good on special occasions makes it feel like the only option for some to look good on a budget.” As mentioned above, there are some ethical issues involved. It goes without saying that wardrobers do not bear any costs and the purchased items, which are taken back to the shop, are less valuable. The majority of shady clients, who do not realize it’s an illegal process, make others pay higher prices on goods. I used to know one girl who was particularly fond of such illicit practices, but since the truth came out we have lost touch. Did she make friends with a better companion for shopping ventures? I guess I will never find out. As you can see, the idea of wardrobing may be seductive and for some of us it’s fun, but there are hundreds of stores which sell classy clothes from a range of designers for cut-rate prices. Why don’t you check there? It is a great idea to swap your attire with your family members or friends. If you know anyone who is into wardrobing, talk to them and explain why there’s nothing to boast about.
What department does Mrs Smith go to first? na maturze
What department does Mrs Smith go to first? Mrs Smith is going shopping with her son. They are looking for a present for Mr Smith's birthday. Mrs Smith wants to buy him a new camera and Tom wants to buy him a jumper. They drive to the department store on the high street. Mrs Smith uses the escalator to go to the Electrical Department on the third floor and Tom takes the stairs up to the Men's Clothing Department on the first floor. When she gets to the Electrical Department she finds that cameras are sold in the Photography Department on the ground floor. She takes the elevator down and asks the sales assistant there for some help. She doesn't know much about cameras and needs some advice. He recommends an automatic camera by Olympus, but it is too expensive. She asks him if he has anything a little cheaper and he tells her about a special offer on the Pentax range. It still seems expensive so she thanks the assistant and decides to shop around first. Meanwhile, Tom is looking at the jumpers. He only has £10 to spend so he can't afford most of them. He sees his mother and they decide to go to the smaller shops round the corner.
Where does he study? na maturze
Steven Proud, a research student writing a PhD at Bristol University, tracked boys’ and girls’ test results at the ages of 7, 11, 14 and 16 in 16,000 schools in England. He analysed the test scores to see whether the proportion of girls in a year group made a difference to the results of both genders in Maths, Science and English. His research contradicted the widely held belief that girls are always a good influence on boys in school. He found that boys consistently perform up to a tenth of a grade worse when they study English with high numbers of girls. However, when it comes to Maths and Science, both boys and girls achieve up to a tenth of a grade more when there are many girls in the class. Proud argues that boys may do worse at English when there is a high proportion of girls in their class because they realize that the girls are better than them at this subject. “It could also be that teachers use teaching styles more appropriate to girls when there are more girls than boys in the class,” Proud says.
