Office Ethics

When we were talking about Ethics, we watched a few clips from the comedy TV series "The Office." You can see some clips on youtube.

To differentiate from similar titles, type in the names of some of the characters (Jim, Pam, Michael Scott) or actors (Steve Carrell).You may also watch the British version by searching for "UK The Office."

The relationships on the show may remind you of how you and your co-workers interact. But what about the jokes? Some people find the show very funny, and others do not see what the big deal is.


Do you have any ideas for this blog?

-what links would you like to see on here?

-are there any interesting topics you would like to see discussed on here?

-are there any specific grammar topics that you'd like to see addressed?

A Life-Changing Experience

We listened to the audio track of another TED video, "3 things I learned while my plane crashed."

Ric Elias found himself in a situation that would cause many people to reevaluate their priorities in life. How do you think your priorities would change if you had this kind of situation?

Is there something you regret doing/not doing in life?
