Question: It seems ok to put other peoples in but you cant put your own opinion of that research even if you have backed it up with and discussed it with alternative research.I am confused as it seems that all you end up doing id listing and contrasting others research and not putting your opinion and a machine could do that

I had professors who preferred it either way. Some were dead set against any opinions in a research paper and others indicated that they wanted the student to draw their own conclusions or inferences from the research presented. My personal opinion is that stating an opinion that is supported by the evidence in your research paper shows that you have critical thinking and analysis skills. But... like I said... I think it often depends on the professor.

If you received the doc as an attachment, worked on it, and saved it, it will be difficult to find it. The first place to look is in Recent documents. In Word 2010, go to File, Recent. In many cases it will not be here. Go to the spot where there is a doc attached to an e-mail. Open the attachment and try to save it taking note of where it is being saved. It will probably have a meaningless name so go to that file folder and sort by date and see what is in that file saved around the date and time you saved the doc. Also, in Win 7 go to the Start button and type *.doc or *.docx and see if you can fine the file that way. Good luck.

Inevitably, you will put your own twist in your report. However, for research assignments, people are looking for facts. When you add quotes and opinions from others, its because they are respected sources--they should be people who have some sort of strong background in whatever subjects you're writing about. Thus their opinion is closer to being fact. Also, as complex as machines are becoming, they will cannot replace a human when it comes to writing a research project. You will still be putting it together and tying all the facts together. Usually, the last paragraph can be used to actually have your own opinion on how all these facts work together and if they are correct. But, in the end, research projects are about finding truths and facts, and trying to learn more.

I know what you mean I had this problem in a graduate class last year. It's research...you have not done any therefore your opionions are not wanted basically. If you have a section where you did your own research then you would put that info in there....at least that was what I was told.

The point of a research paper is to give factual information, or a least information that is supported by others. You can use your opinion, as long as you can back it up with research.

The answer isn't "all over the web". It is in your district's disciplinary code. You should be able to find that in your student handbook. There is certainly a copy in your school office and the District Office for public viewing. My district has the entire School District Code on the district website. This document spells out kinds of offenses and the appropriate level of punishment. Why haven't your friend's parents requested a conference with the teacher? If they don't get satisfaction, they should meet with the principal. The fact that he is an athlete has nothing to do with it. This is unfair punishment that hurts his class rank, and possibly college admission and scholarships.
