Writing Feedback / The degree of education of female in Someland divided by seven groups for five decades 1945 to 1995 [3]

IELTS Task 1, The Ratio of the Highest Education Level of Women in 1945 and 1995

The two pie charts illustrate ratio among all women education level start from no schooling to post graduate between 1945 and 1995 in some land. Overall, high advancement had been made by women throughout 50 year. Although in the earlier period, women mostly took low level of education only, but none of them halted their study at least in year 9 in 1995.

During 5 decades, such progress had been passed. In 1945, 35 per cent of women finished school program in the third grade and equal proportion of them chose no entering school program. In addition, approximately 15 per cent of them suspended their education in 6th year. However, this turn drastically since no one paused at this level and continued at the next grade instead.

Contrast percentages were also presented in both pictures. 1945 witnessed about 10% of female wrapped up educational grade in year 9 and very small proportions in year 12 as well as university degree. Aside of that, a half per cent of female population graduated in bachelor degree while one-fifth received graduation certificate in post graduate in final period.

Writing Feedback / How can we speak powerfully to make change in the world? [6]

TED Summary, How to speak so that people wat to listen By Julian treasure

How can we speak powerfully to make change in the world ? this question leads us to serious introspection on ourself. The speaker believe that it is because our habit that make us not listened. Therefore, we need to ignore 7 habits in our way of speaking, namely Gossip, easily judging someone, negative thinking, complain without action, making up an excuse and blame to someone, lying, and dogmatism (bombarding someone with our opinion). Following this, it is unsufficient if we only avoid this without changing our way of speaking. He argue that there are 4 significant foundation we need to be imposed. This is what he calls "HAIL" (Honestly, Aunthenticity, Integrity and Love) to greet or claim something enthusiatically by liken this as a engine. However, engine requires to be fixed by some equipments in toolbox. Everyone has amazing toolbox but only a few of them are able to open it. The first is register, location of your voice (from throat or heart) and secondly is timbre, represent the way your voice feel. Then we might know prosody, a sing song or the matter of language, the rude one in conversation to make our tune monotone or divers. Pace is the other tools which play an important role to speed the speaking or slow to emphasize. Eventually, pitch and volume which indicates the meaning and catching public attention on what we are saying are also vital. If powerfull speaker combined with conscious listener while designing our soundscape (environment), we will create alteration in our world.

Writing Feedback / What skill does everyone need? According to the speaker, it should be addressed to listening skill. [2]

TED Summary "5 ways to listen better" by Julian Treasur

What skill does everyone need.? This question, according to the speaker, should be addressed to listening skill. Every human being needs to listen in order to create understand each other. Without this one, many things can happen when the world avoid to listen each other. Listening is about making meaning from sound by extracting process. People used to this as a pattern recognition to distinguish signal, especially our name. Sound place us in space of time. We tend to aware of the size of the room and how many people are in the room from the vibrations of microphone.

In reality, communities spend 60% communication time to listen, but not very good at it because what they attained is about 25% in general. Therefore, the speaker argue that We are losing our listening It is because we invented way to record something (writing and audio recording), which make "carefully listening" dissapeared And The world becomes so noisy that makes our auditory system hard to listen. To tackle this, the speaker offers 5 ways, namely silent 3 minutes per day to reset and calibrate our ear, practice in "the mixer" situations (in crowded) on how many sounds do we hear, savering, attempt on listening positions, and pay attention on RASA (Receive information, Apreciate it, Summarise it and Ask to someone closers).

Please check subject verb agreement also, as you mention several popular destination(s) but you state "is" in your conclusion.

In addition, you state similar sentence in thesis statement (the most popular destination is Western Europe) and conclusion (Western Europe is the most popular destination to travel.)

Please paraphrase it.

Writing Feedback / What Do You Know About the Common Cold? [3]

Greetings Mrs sestria,
I am pleased to read your writing. However I'm afraid that you need to few adjustments, particularly in paragraph 1, because it is crucial when you want to attract reader.

Some people says if we getting cold it can give us a cold , but Ranit Mishori as medicine doctor at Georgetown University (...) said that colds are most frequently occurring in winter, ...

Sneezing, handshakes, or coughing on one other would make common ...

Some people (plural subject) should followed by say/argue/claim/believe, not says (only for singular)

If + subject + verb + object/adverb , subject + modal (can/will/shall) + object/adverb
So this sentence probably like this :
If we are in coldness, we will get a fever/cold,

But let me help you to adjust your writing in order to be sounds academic,

Some people believe that coldness in some situations will lead us easily to get fever/cold. Dr. Ranit Mishori, physician at Georgetown University Medical Center in Washington, argue that this is usually caused in winter season while the temperature drop to below 10 degree. Sneezing, handshakes, and coughing are several indicator to know if someone is getting cold.

Writing Feedback / TED Summary by Julia Galef, Why you think you are right even if you are wrong [3]

Why someone have convinced to be guilty even if they are right ?. this question leads us to the "soldier mindset" which emphasize the way we interpret information by taking one side without considering another side. People, in this situation, believe that few ideas/information are likely to be our ally while others ideas are judged as the opposite regardless of discovering others evidence first. The scariest things about this mindset is "someone may think they are objective and fair-minded meanwhile they ruin life of innocent people". This may results in unhealthy relationship among each others.

The strategy to tackle this, according to Julia Galef, is by converting our perspective into "scout mindset". Scout main set is the point of view in which drives to get an accurate information as much as possible even if that is unpleasant or inconvenient. What make someone think as this mindset are emotional and curious. They feel pleasure to look for evidence as similar as solving puzzle and are open-minded of any argument/new evidence. The consequence is not only improving the way we judge someone but it also proofing the reality.

Writing Feedback / TED Summary, the skill of self confidence from Dr. Ivan Joseph [3]

What is the important of confidence ? some people said, "without that skill, it will be nonsense to be a player." This sentence means that when someone lose sense of confidence on each person, they are not going to get anything or we can say "they are done". According to Dr. Ivan Joseph, Self confidence is the ability to believe in yourself in order to accomplish all tasks and It does not matter what the difficulty we will face. More importantly, He claimed that this skill was able to be trained by autodidact as well as by training program.

One of the pivotal method to learn this skill is practice, practice and practice because this skill is not novel ability. By doing so, lots of pressure or even negative talk that come up from others will be tackled soon. However, this usually depend on him/herself because no one else will put a trust If that person does not believe on him/herself. Other way that is suggested by the speaker is by finding the clue on how to decrease error during the practice season. Ignoring what people say while taking into account on good advice are the effective steps to achieve free-error throughout exercise. Additionally, creating positive perception in what individual does is also the key to secure the this skill.

Writing Feedback / Cars, apart of the private transportation, has recently sold to many people in developing countries. [3]

Question :

More and more people in developing countries are purchasing cars for the first time.
What problems does this cause ?
What do you think are possible solutions?

Response :

Cars, apart of the private transportation, has recently sold to many people in developing countries. This fact, in my point of view, triggers widespread issues at these countries, such as air pollution and highly traffic jam potential. Therefore it is required short term respond to tackle this.

Needless to say that air pollution generated from the automobiles establish slowly environment devastation in the future. it occurs since each of them emit carbon dioxide resulting of combustion process, typically for diesel machine. Once the carbon dioxide spread, the air will naturally be polluted and cause limited oxygen for breathing. Health bureau of Iceland released trend of carbon dioxide percentages in atmosphere since January 2015 to December 2015. This article presented increasing trend from the first period approximately 1 % (19.35% in January). therefore, the tendency of "devastation is going to be unstoppable in contaminating environment'' is hard to stop. this issues only need to reforestation the empty land by planting trees that absorb huge carbon dioxides and change it into oxygen

Another impact that probably needed to be considered is highly potential of traffic jam in any roads. when the amount of vehicles in such areas rise without clear regulations, then the traffic jam caused by too many of them will never be avoided like in Ireland, 2013 where over 1900 cars drove across in the main roads caused 3 hours stuck in and this country lost potential money about $ 300.000.

According to aforementioned fact above, fast resolution from government is needed. One of the idea come from the improvement of safety mass transportation. Developing public transportation namely train and bus is offered to solve the issues as they can transport many passengers on each trip with affordable cost.

To sum up, Buying Cars without controlling it will enable creating many transportation issues. Thus, I believe government should solve this problem, for instance by developing integrated mass transportation system.
