Those who opine lose their impunity when the circumstances in which they pontificate are such that generate from their expression a positive instigation of some mischievous act. An opinion that corn dealers are starvers of the poor, or that owning private property is robbery, ought to be unmolested when simply circulated through the press, but may justly incur punishment when delivered orally to an excited mob assembled before the house of a corn dealer, or when handed about among the same mob in the form of a placard. Acts, of whatever kind, which without justifiable cause do harm to others, may be, and in the more important cases are absolutely required to be, controlled by the unfavourable sentiments, and, when needful, by the active interference of mankind. The liberty of the individual must be thus far limited; he must not make himself a nuisance to other people. But if he refrains from molesting others in matters that concern them, and merely acts according to his own inclination and judgment in matters which concern himself he should be allowed, without molestation, to carry his opinions into practice at his own cost. As it is useful that while mankind are imperfect there should be different opinions, so it is that there should be different experiments of living, that free scope should be given to varieties of character, short of injury to others, and that the worth of different modes of life should be proved practically, when anyone thinks fit to try them. Where not the person's own character but the traditions and customs of other people are the rule of conduct, there is wanting one of the principal ingredients of individual and social progress.

It would be absurd to pretend that people ought to live as if nothing whatever had been known in the world before they came into it; as if experience had as yet done nothing toward showing that one mode of existence, or of conduct, is preferable to another. Nobody denies that people should be so taught and trained in youth as to know and benefit by the ascertained results of human experience. But it is the privilege and proper condition of a human being, arrived at the maturity of his faculties, to use and interpret experience in his own way. It is for him to find out what part of recorded experience is properly applicable to his own circumstances and character. The traditions and customs of other people are, to a certain extent, evidence of what their experience has taught them-presumptive evidence, and as such, have a claim to his deference-but, in the first place, their experience may be too narrow, or they may have not interpreted it rightly. Secondly, their interpretation of experience may be correct, but unsuited to him. Customs are made for customary circumstances and customary characters, and his circumstances or his character may be uncustomary. Thirdly, though the customs be both good as customs and suitable to him, yet to conform to custom merely as custom does not educate him or develop in him any of the qualities which are the distinctive endowments of a human being. He gains no practice either in discerning or desiring what is best. The secret of Life ,though,is to fall seven times and to get up eight times.

Due to high jet fuel costs, airline carriers are looking for new ways to increase revenues and thereby counteract declining profits. Airline A has proposed increasing the number of passengers that can fit on its airplanes by creating several standing room only “seats” in which passengers would be propped against a padded backboard and held in place with a harness. This proposal, since it relates to passenger safety, cannot be implemented without prior approval by the Federal Aviation Administration. The above statements, if true, indicate that Airline A has made which of the following conclusions?

From my personal experience, I wouldn't recommend going for Jamboree's total package. (which includes school application). Just go for GMAT preparation if you want.

Besides e-GMAT preparation, these are the books you can go for:

2. Additional books that come with OG (Verbal, Quant)

Yes the email id is right. Hostel fee can be paid before the classes commence. I am not sure if it can be paid before, and you pay the DD as an hostler, i guess a hostel seat would be surely allocated and available to get admitted before the classes commence. That shouldn't be a worry.

is "broadcast " singular or plural ? 

7. Although it claims to delve into political issues, television can be superficial such as when each of the three major networks broadcast exactly the same statement from a political candidate.

  1. superficial such as when each of the three major networks
  2. superficial, as can sometimes occur if all of the three major networks
  3. superficial if the three major networks all        
  4. superficial, as when the three major networks each 
  5. superficial whenever each of the three major networks

  • okk thanks a ton !. 12h.
Rupesh choudhary @rupesh.dsi.86 2

Broadcast is Singular.. "Each of the three networks Broadcasts" whereas "The three network each broadcast".. The use of word "Each" after subject does not make any difference to subject. If put before subject "Each" then makes the subject singular hence singular verb required then.

If settlement is your ultimate goal, then you should limit yourself to Canada. In addition to UBC and Schulich, look up Rotman, Richard Ivey and Queens.

I need some advice regarding my profile. Also, please suggest possible colleges which I should be aiming at considering my profile and Work Experience. I just want to add that I plan to prepare for GMAT this year and write the exam sometime after 6-8 months. 

My profile is as follows:

Work Exp: 50+ months in IT

Currently Working in Cognizant as an Associate for the past 4 years. Received star performer of the month reward. Have worked for a couple of years in challenging client side environments (in India itself).

BTech: Did it from an average college in Tamil Nadu

CGPA: 7.6

12th: 60

10th: 66

Extracurricular activities: Music (won best bassist award in a national competition held by Yamaha), Writing (have written lyrics for a music CD which we released as part of a project in College), Was the class representative in College, Won first prize in a national level paper presentation competition, Plus some certificates in sports events held in school.

What kind of a GMAT score should I be looking at? Also, as i am preparing for CAT already will my CAT preparation be enough for GMAT (planning to take up some online course for GMAT as well buy couple of books)? Will this preparation be enough? 

Looking for an honest feedback about  my chances in good colleges in India as well as abroad. Considering colleges abroad which are not so expensive and which provide a chance of settling abroad.
