SECOND HALF page(2paragraphs):
The Internet is full of information. Sometimes, the information we find using online sources is very well done, reliable, and accurate. Other times, we find ourselves on a Web page that has less-than-credible information. It is important to keep this in mind as we explore culture. To help us determine what makes a site credible, I would encourage you to follow this link:
to the library at Johns Hopkins University where you will learn about the criteria used to determine the credibility of a website.
- How do you know whether a website is credible?
- What are signs that it is something you should not use for an academic paper?
I would also like you to post a link to a site that you have found specific to cross-cultural study. Tell us if you feel that the site is credible and why. By the end of this week, working collaboratively, we can develop a virtual library of credible information sources that will aid us in future cross-cultural study

- Lying to a person who is acting in the heat of passion in order to prevent him from doing something you know he will later regret. (Knowledge is true belief, and this case you know he will regret, so build the case that it’s true he will regret.)
