- We can prove that SantaCon goes from Belfast to Moscow and that there are now 100’s of people attending. This is a Fact. This year, the Santas will converge at 10 a.m. near Tompkins Square Park in the East Village and eventually make their way to Brooklyn, ending near

Bedford-Stuyvesant. - This is a fact. We can porve that SataCon is starting near Tompkins Square and will end in Bedford-Stuyvesant. Mr. Santa acknowledged that the sight of a Santa vomiting on himself or a Santa passed out on the street does have a memorable — or infamous — quality to it. - We can prove that Mr. Santa said this making it a fact. But every Santa must take responsibility for his or her own actions. “No one controls SantaCon,” he said. - This is an opinion. The comment we can prove to be said, but the content is a personal view. 2. 1"On Tuesday, Ms. [Mary] Barra, 51, completed a remarkable personal odyssey when she was named as the next chief executive of G.M.--and the first woman to ascend to the top job at a major auto company." Fact- This can be proven. 2"A big reason America is falling behind other countries in science and math is that we have effectively written off a huge chunk of our population as uninterested in those fields or incapable of succeeding in them." Opinion- They use the word “we”. They are using “we” or first person to show it’s from their point of view. 3"Last month the N.B.A. issued 21 fines and suspensions — a punitive spree that amounted to about $602,882." Fact- This is something we can look up and prove. 4"The inspiration for the original “Anchorman” came one evening more than a decade ago when Mr. Ferrell was watching a television documentary about Jessica Savitch, one of the first woman to anchor news telecasts." Fact- We can ask Mr. Ferrell to prove this to show it is a fact.

5"Cowbirds are brood parasites, meaning they lay their eggs in the nests of other bird species, thus unloading the messy and demanding business of chick-rearing." Fact- We can go and look this up to prove it. 6"Instead of striving to make work fun, managers should concentrate on creating the conditions in which a variety of personality types, from the excitable to the naturally downbeat, can flourish." Opinion- They are talking in first person. Also it says “managers should” this shows that it is someone's opinion. 7"In the first step to formally eradicating a thrilling but dangerous staple of the game — and an emphatic response to the concussion crisis that has gripped other sports — Major League Baseball’s rules committee voted Wednesday to eliminate home-plate collisions." Fact- As the first statements can be seen as an opinion, the last sentence is what it is about and is something that can be proven.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
