How to email your Professor?Written by A Khan
So its 12:30 Pm and there you are at computer trying to refresh email inbox page. The big test is tomorrow and your Professor still hasn’t replied back, but why? Contrary to popular belief, that your Professor wants you to fail, problem could stem from fact that your email never reached him/her. Hence, purpose of this guide is to show students how to write an effective email to their Professors.
The From Field Always use your University or College email address when sending an email to your professor. This not only assures professor that you are indeed a student but also avoids your email from getting put in spam box. Many Universities and Colleges now employ a system of only allowing emails to be received from certain domains anything else (hotmail, yahoo...etc) is either automatically put in spam box or is forwarded to Professor as a potential spam. Example: Astudent@university.edu
The To Field This is single most important field, if you mess up in here there you can kiss your email good bye. Avoid putting Professor’s name with email (A Prof ), since not all emailing system can handle this format. It is always best to send your email to Professor’s University or College account, since that is email account that your Professor checks, or should check, most. And again before sending email double check to verify that email address was typed correctly. Example: Aprof@universtiy.edu
The Subject Field The subject field should be of following format: CollegeName-CourceCode-Title-Subject
CollegeName: Is name of your post secondary institution (America Learning College, Boston University…etc). Yes I do realize that this may seem a bit redundant but it is important. Most Professors (Usually new Professors) teach at one or more Universities and Colleges at any given term, and email from those institutions gets forwarded to one main address, usually their ISP email address. So to keep things organized its best to write name of College or University in Subject Field. CourseCode- Is code name of course (MTH140, CPS124, GEF345…etc). It’s best to keep letters Capital and no spaces between number and letter.
Chinese MedicineWritten by C. Bailey-Lloyd/LadyCamelot
Chinese Medicine, over 2000 years old, is an ancient form of medicine. Consisting of acupuncture, moxibustion (moxibustion - using material made up of "moxa-wool," in a form of a cone or stick; moxibustion is used to treat and prevent disease by applying heat to pints or certain locations of human body), herbal medicine, acupressure, cupping, therapeutic exercise and nutrition, traditional Chinese medicine is notated by its principle of internal balance and harmony, or "chi," (life force) regulation through energy channels.
In essence, Chinese medicine is widely known for its acupunture techniques and herbology. Founded on Yin and Yang principle, five elements and Zang Fu, Chinese medicine is an evolutional treatment in modern Western civilization. Chinese medicine also uses Qi Gong and Tai Qi Chuan in its methodology. Incorporating supplemental elements in a nutritious diet such as vitamins, minerals, herbs and other supplements are fundamental treatments in Chinese medicine as well.
