These as well as being able to pull all-nighters, and drink an in ornament amount of alcohol with little side effect are all reasons this drug appeals to college students. “I didn’t feel like I was becoming smarter or even like I was thinking more clearly. I just felt more directed and less distracted by rogue thoughts, less day-dreamy, (3)” said a Joshua Foer, a journalist who, after consulting many physicians, decided to try Adderall for himself. Since many students assert that they use Adderall only for studying for large tests and completing important assignments, the risk of dependency is high. “I don’t think I’m addicted.
At the college level if the player is ejected in the second half of the game, the suspension will carry over to the first half of the next game, but in high school games, the rule is not applied. Coaches around the nation are very much behind the new rule. Jared Sanderson said, “Really, the number-one thing when you’re going to hit somebody you’ve got to keep your eyes up, and we talk to the kids all the time about that” (Watson 2). Sanderson is saying coaches goals are to educate their players that if they have their head down going in for a hit, bad things like head or neck injuries. Many players have been forced to retire early or in rare cases have been hurt permeantly.
Gun control supporters can count some victories during the past year, including the gun-safety regulations in Massachusetts and the defeat of concealed weapons bill in several states. In all, gun control laws being stricter will gain control over gun violence and decrease the death rate over all. Both articles were well written and had chalk full of statistics and links to other sites to seek more information. They were able to convince me that fire arms should not be restricted, and concealed weapons help to lower crime. To not have possession of a gun in your home leaves you to feel helpless, because of this us civilians would no longer be able to
The idea behind this assumption is that people are rational beings who make decisions by comparing risk with reward. Beccaria thought that if the punishment fit the crime, and if the punishment was quick and certain, then people would choose not to engage in criminal activity. There are many examples of crime in television that you can apply this theory to; the pilot episode of AMC’s Breaking Bad is one of these. In this episode, Walter White, a high school chemistry teacher, finds out he has terminal cancer. Not wanting to leave his family with nothing after he dies, he formulates a plan to cook and distribute methamphetamine with the help of Jesse Pinkman, a former student.
Page 43, “do you like advertising yourself.” He chose advertising meaning to show off, and I think it is put in the right place. Page 45, “I’m a heavy duty quarterback;” he said heavy duty to mean strong. He should have said strong, because it makes more sense. Page 60, “do you ever communicate with your agent,” communicate meaning to speak and I don’t think he should change it. Page 66, “I use bandages to prevent burns.” He used bandages to mean wraps, and there is no replacement for it.
His blood soothed my chapped hands” (Martel 345). Christianity, Islam, and Hindu are religions that teach that killing people is wrong. Seeing as Pi practices each of these religions, he directly goes against these beliefs when he kills the cook. Pi's actions, however, are necessary for his survival, and a good illustration of his courage. While others may have shied away from breaking the rules of their religion, Pi shows the personal courage to act in a new and unusual way to survive.
Football is its own sport in many was one being its unique championship. “Football remains the only NCAA sport whose championship isn't decided through a playoff system”(Herald, p.1) that is very unique to the sport and some want to keep it because they like to be different. Some believe that the more different they are the better it is. One of the main groups that were against playoffs were the “lords” or owners, of different teams that they are “ defending the 'fairness' of deeply flawed for determining a division 1-A National Champion”(Herald, p.1). They don't care if others say that the way is flawed they still believe that it is fair in some
Marijuana Use in the NFL The controversy continues with the topic of NFL players using marijuana for therapeutic purposes. Many agree, many disagree. Ask me how I feel and I'll tell you it only benefits them and hurts no one else, so why the hell not? In my opinion, medical marijuana should be permitted to be used by NFL players in order for them to achieve maximum performance. Studies have shown that medical marijuana has been proven just as effective as painkillers and other prescribed drugs.
Regis Kurcikevicius Professor Wells English 1102 26 February 2013 Word count: 650 Not Prescribed ADHD Medication: The medicine college students use to gain an advantage in the classroom What do college students do when they are faced with an assemblage of homework or have a forgotten project due the next day? Unlike the old-fashioned approach which is to sit down and work extremely hard, college students turn to a pill, which is referred to as “the study buddy” or “the study drug.” Professional athletes take steroids to gain an unfair advantage over other athletes, and college students take non-prescribed Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) medication to gain an unfair advantage over fellow classmates. Across colleges in America, an increasing amount of students are getting addicted to ADHD medication such as Adderall, Ritalin, and Vyvanse that is not prescribed to them. They take the medication to get a high
What type of appeal is mentioned? Looking through the words in the article one would find would be pathos, ethos, and logos. An example of pathos would be the statement “But consider a far more serious issue: chronic pain.” What the author is trying to get at is do not just look at the football player using an illegal drug, but the reason behind it, his pain. Pride, fear, and a bit of sympathy is the author’s way at appealing to the emotions. Most people would take medicine either from store bought or prescribed, but what if that does not work or after awhile of taking it, it does not work for the body?
