Another view on Plagiarism: The main disadvantage of doing it

Despite being forbidden by law, plagiarism arises everywhere.

It has turned into a problem, which plagues our society especially in the academic area. Texts (MARTIN, 1994) have treated the problem broadly, talking about ways to prevent it and how to teach our students to avoid doing it. But another view must be approached: who students think they are cheating? We, as teachers, must sign the disadvantages of plagiarism to our students.
Nowadays life’s fast pace along with our necessities are turning time into the most precious thing in our lives, but we can’t use the lack of it as an excuse. When college students use “sentences and structures from an author exactly as they were presented without quotations marks”, they are not only doing something wrong, but they are also missing the chance of learning, and skipping steps as reading and producing an academic text; processes that are extremely necessary to form a professional in his/her plenitude.
So if students are cheating themselves, they are missing a unique opportunity to broaden their cognitive horizons,
moreover they are deceiving society. We can conclude that the main disadvantage of plagiarism strikes society in all areas, because we, ordinary citizens, are being obliged to deal with professionals getting out of college without the necessary formation.

The first case of human-to-human transmission in Britain of the swine flu virus could be confrmed today, as dozens more people are tested across the world. Graeme Pacitti, 24, who came into contact with the Scottish couple who were the frst confrmed cases earlier this week of the H1N1 virus in Britain, is also a “probable” case and is having further tests, the Scottish government said.
Doctors also diagnosed three new infections in England, bringing the British total to eight confrmed cases, the Department of Health said. Two of the cases are in London and one in Newcastle. All are said to be responding well to treatment.
Earlier, the Chief Medical Offcer said that Britain would see “many more cases” of swine flu, although he predicted that most people would recover. In total, 230 possible cases are being investigated in Britain.
Mr. Pacitti, an NHS worker, was put in quarantine when he fell ill after a night out with his football team, which included Iain Askham, 27, who was discharged from the hospital with his wife, Dawn, yesterday after recovering from the virus. The Askhams were the frst British people to be confrmed with swine flu after they picked up the virus on their honeymoon in Mexico.
