I dug out my copy of Henry Reynold's 'Dispossession', in which the Creen Creek illustration and accompanying newspaper text appear. To correct the post above, apparently a large number of Aborigines were holding a place called Bora Bora (and before you suggest it no, there was no tunnel system) near Creen Creek and had attacked the telegraph station. Two NMP sections under sub-Inspectors Armit and Poyngdestre attacked them, leading to a fight that lasted 'a considerable time'. The traveller was merely unhorsed; it was Armit's horse that was killed.
"There are two places you can put page numbers: in the footer or in the document . If you put them in the document, you can never get proper control of them. This is the greatest trap there is for young page-numberers. The page number MUST be inserted into the footer! If your document already has page numbers, click on one. If it shows the square bounding box of a floating text box, it’s in the document: delete it!"
Often you will find that "it" or "they" refers tosomething vague that was not even discussed explicitly in your paper,in which case you should reword your text entirely.
Even if the item to which you refer is explicitly mentioned in yourpaper, ask yourself whether there is any chance that the reader mightnot know to which of several items you might be referring.
Each 1.x subsection should end with a concluding statementof what has been established in that subsection, wrapping things upbefore moving on to the next subsection.
Instead, itshould be something like "Extending the model to explain stereovision" whose meaning will be clear to the type of person likely to bereading the paper.
Forinstance, a section about adding a second eye to a simulation ofsingle-eye vision could truthfully be called "Multiple eyes", but thattitle is meaningless to someone scanning the document.
Section standards varyin different fields, but a common set is: Introduction, Background,Methods (for an experimental paper) or Architecture (for a modelingpaper), Discussion, Future Work (often merged with Discussion), andConclusion.
A local settler would never have discussed the event with outsiders because of the 'code of the frontier', under which a blanket of silence was thrown over frontier atrocities and akirmishes. This fight was not only the subject of a newspaper article; it was accompanied by an illustration, based on information supplied by the traveller, that shows him on the ground after his horse was killed, and the skirmish in the background. It continued for another ten minute or so until the warriors were 'dispersed'. Two troopers were wounded. The illustration can be viewed on Wikipedia.
CK Note: Before doing this to change Headers and Footers realize that each section has up to three headers and three footers and that by using a , you can change their content to reflect the content of the text in the page. You may not need a section break.
There is a rare newspaper account of a skirmish that occurred on the 1st of November, 1876 at a place called Creen Creek. This only exists because of an unusual chain of events:
Your essays for a course assignment will probablynot be published, but genuine scientific writing will be, and thesubject of your paper may very well come across your work eventually.
For instance, in 1873 a large party of miners – cccompanied by a Native Mounted Police section – on its way to the Palmer river gold diggings in Queensland was attacked at first light whilst encamped by as many as 500 local tribesmen. The group had taken precautions against such an assault by erecting a barricade composed of boxes and saddles. The Aborigines very nearly pulled off a surprise attack, but the prosepctors were alerted just in time to prepare an adequate defence.
One clue that your writing needs better transitions is if you findthat you can cut and paste paragraphs from one section to anotherwithout doing substantial rewriting of how the paragraph begins andends.
