Blackadder, when these aspiring nurses fail the class, there is an open seat on the ever-expanding Throne of Lifesaving Dream Crushers with your name on it. The cup holders built into the throne arms are perfect for holding large glasses of Dear Ladies.


Can I join??

Of course, MG.

Ahh...this Throne is quite comfy! Thank you.

Looks like Porcupine might have a seat here too!

-How to glue headings to the text so you don't get "introduction" at the bottom of one page and its accompanying paragraph on the next page



I admit I don't know how to do this...

bioteacher:
The "Keep lines together" and "keep with next" paragraph commands are your friends.

Not so much - this one would actually be a good nurse and I'd like to seem him succeed. His problem is only ever having done multiple choice tests in high school, and then having had a few years of professors who gave him As for content and never helped him improve his writing, which is truly abysmal. He gets this and is willing to work - and has done really well on writing more effectively this semester - but is obviously freaking out.

How does one do this? I've been ignoring this issue for my (gigantic) dissertation, but I'm almost down to formatting.
