His writing career should be in Jeopardy!

The writer of this article - "Mayor Rob Ford’s crack scandal featured on Jeopardy" (where's the ! at the end of Jeopardy!?) on Yahoo! Canada News on January 24, 2014 - didn't do his homework to find out the true value of the clue. I don't know the true value either, but I know it wasn't $80 because the minimum value for the first round is $200 and the minimum value for the second round is $400. Then,

the article also included this tweet from a Toronto City Councillor. $500? Also wrong. In the first round the clues in each category are worth $200, $400, $600, $800, and $1,000. In the second round the clues are worth $400, $800, $1,200, $1,600, and $2,000. And what's up with the apostrophe between Toronto and the question mark? In related news,

the final sentence of a different article about Rob Ford - "Toronto Mayor Rob Ford arrives in Vancouver" on CBC News online on January 31, 2014 - contains a misspelling of what should be continued. Click an image to enlarge it.

When someone’s writing career is in jeopardy he or she must act immediately. There are plenty of services that can help you with all kind of writing, essays and reviews on all the topics. Personally I would recommend the NYC Resume Services because my experience of working with the service was great.
