I'm going to be graduating this year, and hopefully if all goes to plan I'll be starting my masters degree in September *fingers crossed*. I was just wondering if anyone here has done a masters and can just give me a clue about the work load and other stuff. I'm applying to do it part time so that I can get a job to cover the cost of my tuition fees, but was wondering if anyone had any advice or anything to offer me.
I'm hopefully doing my masters in history, so if anyone has possibly done the same that would be great to hear about, but I'd like to hear about all experiences from any subject.
I have been told that a Masters is easier than the normal degree, is this true or is someone just pulling my leg?

I was just wondering if anyone could give me any tips or advice for stopping myself from blushing.
You see, I have to do a presentation on my dissertation in a few weeks, but I'm awful at speaking in front of people and I know I'll start blushing, then I'll be all self conscious and that'll make me even more nervous. I need to do well in this as it's worth 20% of my overall mark, so I can't be all flustered when I do it.
I was told by someone that there's a type of foundation that can conceal blushing (it has a green base, but that means nothing to me). I have no idea where to look for it, I don't even know what it's called, added to that I'm completely clueless about make up. So any help or information any of you could give me would be absolutely great.
Please help me

Does anyone find it a little disconcerting that society can to an extent dictate what we do. I raise this as I was watching "The Big Read" on saturday night, primarily for the part on Phillip Pullmans, His Dark Materials. An issue was raised where it was mentioned that the church and some mainstream newspapers were saying that those books should be thrown onto a fire as they were sending out negative messages of the church. Also the books have been banned from some school libraries and people are campaigning to stop people from going to see the stage show that will be in London soon.
I personally love the His Dark Materials books, they are probably my favourite and I think that Phillip Pullman is an amazing authour. His perception of things are amazing and really make you think about issues.
I was just wondering if anyone else found it a bit worrying that situations like this can arise, just because of a bit of literature raises a particular subject. I know some literature, such as Mein Kampf, has been banned for sufficient reasons, but a piece of fiction writing?...Surely this is a bit ridiculous?!?
Fire away with your opinions...

Ok, I've been having a few family problems recently...my mother was diagnosed with having a brain tumor almost 2 years ago, she had it operated on last january, but they messed up the operation and ended up cutting her pituitary gland so she's now left with a life threatening condition and is also blind in one eye. As a result she has lost her job and will never be able to work again..She's only 47.
Any way, since the operation she has completely changed as a person..she's bitter and resentful (I know it's only to be expected after whats happened). However she seems to be horrible to all the wrong people...she's pushing my step father away and I feel a bit divided between the two...on the one hand she's my mother, I love her and I always will, but I don't lie the way she's been treating the people who are close to her. Am I being insensitive? and does any body have any advice?

I haven't been on here for a while and so haven't had time to read all the new topics so if I'm repeating anyone then I'm sorry.
I was just wondering everybodies views on "Designer babies". I'm not sure if I've got all the details of this right, so if I've got anything wrong please correct my mistakes. Anyway, in Britain a woman has given birth to a child whos cells were genetically engineered to be the same as her ill son so that those cells can be used to cure him. I think the blood cells from the babies umbilical cord are going to be used tyo help her ill son. However, there has been some debate about this and concerns that it can lead to "designer babies" where people can pick and choose which cells they want their baby to have and so could effectively design the perfect baby for themselves.
I can see the benifits of do this as it can potentially save lives, but I can also see how it could be considered to be morally wrong....What are your views
