comment better word for single handedly
You are looking for "in and of itself". But what you are really looking for is dropping the word altogether because you already have "on its own" in there which means the same thing. (What you are not looking for, but should be looking for, is a dictionary that explains the difference between its and it's.) So: no news on its own is good news. No news by itself is good news. No news in and of itself is good news. This is not rocket science. Lastly, please do not create a second account to provide non-answers to your own questions. Thank you.

comment In a single word, how can you describe something as being made by women for women?
Please supply more context. Please also supply the reason why you need a single word. @DanBron may have been joking, but you can actually use "women-for-women", or "by-women-for-women", and these are single words. But why do you need a single word? And why a single word for these particular words in what you're writing, and not others?

comment fill in the blank using correct option
Please see our guidelines for asking homework questions. Specifically, "make a good-faith attempt to solve the problem yourself first" and "ask about specific problems with your existing approach to answering the question". Otherwise all you get is a single fish and still no clue about how fishing works.

comment the English Language Teacher
The English Language teacher is incorrectly capitalized but grammatical. The English language teacher is grammatical and capitalized correctly. An English language teacher is grammatical as well. English language teacher without an article is grammatical. The English language is grammatical. An English language is grammatical. English language with no article is grammatical. They just all mean different things. This is like asking if cat or dog is correct. Both are equally correct, but you use them in different circumstances, for different reasons, and to a different effect.

comment Should I use 'which' or 'that'?
Both sentences mean the exact same thing. You are struggling to choose one precisely because they both mean the exact same thing.

comment “is to make sure” vs “is making sure”
All I'm saying is this can be worded more carefully. And probably should.

comment “is to make sure” vs “is making sure”
The infinitive is a verb, by definition. Nouns don't have infinitives. Also, as someone else has just pointed out in chat, copulas don't have objects.

comment “is to make sure” vs “is making sure”
Hold on. So do we need a noun or not. Because a verb is clearly not a noun and so won't do.

Yes. And in fact you just did. But whether you can say something like this in a particular context, is a different question entirely.
