Topic: Prescriptive vs Descriptive
Posted: Tuesday, April 10, 2018 4:46:10 AM
Dear Colleagues.
May you kindly explain me the difference between prescriptive and descriptive in the following sentence.

Capitalism began as a theory about how the economy functions. It was both prescriptive and descriptive--it offered an account of how money worked and promoted the idea that investing profits in production leads to fast economic growth.

Topic: Did the answer cut it ?
Posted: Wednesday, March 28, 2018 4:35:06 AM
Dear Forum Members.
May you kindly explain me " Did the answer cut it" phrase in the following text:


Mahira: It wasn't difficult to make it. The man who made it, he's made two previous films, Khuda Ke Liye, which again was a brilliant film but touched on very sensitive topics, whether it was religion or politics or how we treat women in our society. All of that was touched upon in KKL. Then he came out with Bol, which touched on even more sensitive issues. And now he's made Verna. The making of it with a man like Shoaib Mansoor was not difficult because that's what he does.

Did the answer cut it? The question was simple: was Verna a simple film to make and did she think there was an audience for films like it? Mahira should have resisted the impulse to lavish praise on Shoaib Mansoor and instead speak about the ease or difficulty of her work in the film and comment on whether audiences take well to taboo subjects like rape. She could have pointed out, for instance, that TV serials with themes of child sexual abuse or honour killings have enjoyed high ratings, which indicates an appetite for serious subject matter.

Topic: Nuclear Option in Senate
Posted: Monday, January 22, 2018 2:03:40 AM
Dear Forum Members.
May someone kindly explains in simple words with example the political term NUCLEAR OPTION IN SENATE. The Republican does not have 60 votes in the Senate to pass the federal budget and now the govt is considering the NUCLEAR OPTION to bypass the required majority in the Senate to do the needful.
I went through many articles but they could clear my concept.
Thank you for always help.

Topic: Political Narrative
Posted: Thursday, April 27, 2017 4:33:01 AM
Dear Forum Members.
May you kindly explain me the term Political narrative as used in the below sentence:

This victimization of the victim, a political strategy the BJP has near-perfected, helps them to keep control of the political narrative and also consolidate its support base at the cost of social peace and cohesion.

Thank you so much.
