His conscious was biting him in the butt because he didn’t earn such an honor to be in the hall fame. So he admitted to taking steroids during his career of baseball. He was the voted out of the hall of fame.Which makes us think how many baseball hall of famers might’ve cheated on baseball but never found out. Cheating has become the culture of the game. There are no cons but one if you get caught you get punished.
The Redskins shouldn’t change their name because there is a MLB team called the Indians, they would lose a lot of money if they changed their logo, and they already have a lot of merchandise around the world. If the Redskins have to change their name because it offends the Native Americans then the Indians should have to change their name as well because it’s also a type of tribe. The Redskins have had their name since 1932. If they change their logo they would lose a great deal of money in ticket sales because their name is so popular. Also they would tons of fans due to the name change.
This movie was all about non-ethical and lazy like sayings, such as: “lets get it over quick” and “who really cares”. One guy, the 8th juror, did not agree with these saying’s and believed that a tough decision like this could not be decided in 5 minutes. He played a smart game, which we call ’playing devils advocate’. While the 11 men thought the person charged was guilty, this one juror thought differently. The 12 angry men were your average men, but each one had a different side.
Prejudice can be defined as “a negative attitude toward and entire category of people, often an ethnic or racial minority group”, and this film portrays this very well. The wealthy were prejudiced toward the poor, “slumdogs” and set standards for the poor people. The “slumdogs” had no say in their lives because the wealthy have already decided what they are capable of without giving them many chances. Prejudice from the wealthy is shown clearly in the opinion that someone from the slum could not possibly possess knowledge. The quizmaster – who himself has gone from rags to riches - presents this belief to the audience, and their response shows them to be in agreement with it.
The NAACP’s offices in the southern state were shut down to prevent any form of protests for civil rights in the south. CORE journey of reconciliation highlighted that while African Americans enjoyed de jure rights, they weren’t seeing what they got realistically. In 1947 there was limited amount of picketing visible by the civil rights campaigners, only small protests were seen and they had no aid in change. When the African Americans won the brown v. board they had been proud of the victory, but in hindsight the victory was only de jure meaning what they won wasn’t put into practice. The lack of picketing shows that the civil rights campaigners were subject to limited protest so they never did much towards helping.
The prosecution relies heavily on communication between Riff and others to establish motive. Marquette claims that Riff threatened to get even with him and put his store out of business after he was fired for being late. Motive is further established by Riff’s mentioning to Fender that he needed a lot more money than what he had won at poker that night. Verbal communication is further used to define the explanation of Riff about his winnings to those who asked, and doubt is cast upon his story by Martini, who claimed that he saw Riff cash in less money than he claimed to have and to have heard Riff complaining about being unable to win. This creates both a motive for Riff to rob, and casts doubts on the story that Riff gave to people who inquired
He stated that in the first two, chance can play a surprisingly important role but fielding is the one part of baseball where chance does not play much a role (38-39). Gmelch also talked about a well-known taboo in baseball. According to him, saying no-hitter while one is in progress is considered as taboo. It is believed that if a pitcher hears no-hitter, the incantation accounting his progress will be broken and the pitcher will lose (41). “You can’t really tell what’s most important so it all becomes important.
The only problem with that rule change was that it was very limited use of instant replay. With the new rule, umpires could only review homeruns, whether they had actually gone over the fence, or if they were fair or foul. They were allowed to check nothing else by instant replay and that became a major problem in Major League Baseball. Since instant replay was so limited, many calls have been called wrong and have cost teams wins, perfect games, which is one of the biggest achievements for a pitcher and even World Series titles. Instant replay should be used for more than just reviewing homeruns, they should be used to help correct umpires mistakes but not as extensive as correcting ball or strike calls.
It is the same thing with the lottery; everyone wants to befriend the winner. Another negative effect generated from winning the lottery is your newfound trait of being insecure. Privacy becomes a thing of the past once you become a millionaire and you are now considered a local celebrity. A question that the lottery winner would be constantly asking themself is “Do people like me for me or my money?” All of these brand-new insecurities lead up to the winner losing their identity. They give up their old hobbies and interests that everyone once identified them by and they solely become “that one guy who won the lottery.” For most couples, a substantial lottery win is a dream come true.
It needs to be solv ed. There is no one I’ve talked to that can say it is not a problem.” President Bush also mentioned the problem of steroids in baseball in last year’s State of the Union address. If it is a big enough problem for the President of United States to address to all Americans, it is obviously a problem baseball has. Not only are steroids cheating, it is a very wrong and lazy way to become the player you want to be. Success takes practice and many hours of dedicated hard work, not just an injection that will do it for you.
