If you are going to answer the first question, in which you’re asked to compare business to sports, you don’t need to be a big sports fan (whether it’s soccer, football or synchronized swimming) to structure an interesting argument. Also, while Oxford did ask about sports, this doesn’t mean that your readers will be into sports themselves – so try to make it interesting for people from various backgrounds. Try to address the various parts of the questions – what sports teach us not just about companies, but also about individuals, companies and markets.  If you’re a soccer fan you might be tempted to talk about Sir Albert Ferguson, but remember that you will not be alone if you pick this for a topic.

True Sedarians, of course, know him for not just his inimitably askew perspective on the holidays, but for his accounts of life in New York, Paris (the reason he enrolled in those French classes in the first place), Normandy, London, the English countryside, and growing up amid his large Greek-American family. Many of Sedaris' stories -- 20 in fact -- have been collected at the web site,  The Electric Typewriter , giving you an overview of Sedaris' world: his time in the elfin trenches, his rare moments of ease among siblings and parents, his futile father-mandated guitar lessons, his less futile language lessons, his relinquishment of his signature smoking habit (the easy indulgence of which took him, so he'd said at that Seattle reading, to France in the first place). Among the collected stories, you will find:

Small though they may be, emojis resonate with populist power: Over 300 million images are shared daily by Facebook users; 45 million are posted through Instagram (Rock).

Japanese author Motoko Tamamuro explains that the Japanese "tend to imply things instead of explicitly expressing them, so reading the situation and sensing the mood are very important. We take extra care to consider other people's feelings when writing correspondence, and that's why emoji became so useful in email and text – to introduce more feeling into a brevitised form of communication" (qtd. in Marsden). Tamamuro's concerns are similar to those early English-language adopters of emoticons—wary of language's missteps and interested in closing as many gaps between intended and received communication.

A couple of days away from sitting my third year (pre-clinical) “finals”: although I completely adore Oxford, the academic work load is unnecessarily rigorous and I’m currently wishing I was at any university other than Oxford studying medicine, the feeling of complete and total inadequacy is overwhelming sometimes but hopefully at least an appreciation and understanding of research will be advantageous (if for nothing else than squashing any silly ideas that doing a PhD or going into research is in anyway a good idea)
