    Hornemans plagiarized a decent sized portion of his application from two different sources. For example:

    From http://www.support4change.com/index...catid=51:poems-to-express-yourself&Itemid=207: "But just who am I?," you ask. "How can I describe myself? I experience the world and my place in it through all of my senses. I see, hear, feel, touch, smell, and taste something every day. I have hope and desires, worries and certainties. How can I put all that together and say 'I am this' or 'I am that?' "

    From http://www.askamanager.org/2014/08/open-thread-august-8-2014.html: In addition to being flexible and responsive, I’m also a fanatic for details – particularly when it comes to presentation. One of my recent projects involved coordinating a 200-page grant proposal: I proofed and edited the narratives provided by the division head, formatted spreadsheets, and generally made sure every line was letter-perfect and that the entire finished product conformed to the specific guidelines of the RFP. (The result? A five-year, $1.5 million grant award.) I believe in applying this same level of attention to detail to tasks as visible as prepping the materials for a top-level meeting and as mundane as making sure the copier never runs out of paper.

    Hornemans almost completely copied these passages. He didn't even take the time to put it into his own words. Is this someone that we want to be a helper?

    (Bob4444444 and Worena_Ravenclaw originally found these cases of plagiarism, I'm not going to plagiarize their efforts ;), this thread is just to bring more attention to the issue and expose hornemans for who he is)

    @Hornemans, anything to say?
