Running Around Physical Education
It is no secret that America has become an overweight country, yet having mandatory physical education is still a growing debate in the U.S. Physical education can help the emergent obesity rates, along with many other problems that exercise aids. Most students that are not in a sport are not receiving the exercise that they need to be healthy. P.E. should be a required course for all students that are not participating in a physical school sport already.
Physical education classes are necessary in schools because they can help reduce obesity rates in the U.S. and keep children in better shape. According to Time Magazine, one in three U.S. children is overweight or obese (Rochman). With America’s obesity rates continuously increasing, the government should do whatever they can to lower these rates, and mandatory P.E. is a step they can take. Lately, children are becoming lazier, eating worse, and playing too many video games, all things that can contribute to being overweight. Being overweight or obese can lead to serious health issues, like high blood pressure, heart attack, stroke, diabetes, and gallbladder disease. In the article “Va. Senate Approves Requiring Physical Education,” the author claims that doctors are finding more obese-related diseases in young patients, like Type 2 Diabetes and cardiac disease, which were only found in adults before. One doctor even had a patient that weighed 200 pounds at the age of 11, and his obese weight caused him to have an enlarged heart (Sampson). These are very serious issues and it is frightening that people are being affected by them at such young ages. The leading causes of obesity are taking in more calories than they burn off, and having an inactive lifestyle. Having physical education can help the inactive lifestyle issue. Stated in the article “Physical Education in America’s…...

Mandatory Vaccinations

...Upon first glance, immunizations look like a terrific solution to a horrific problem. But what if these immunizations were causing horrific problems of their own? What if the ingredients of the injections were just as bad as the disease they were meant to prevent? A staggering 77% of American kindergarteners are up to date with their vaccinations. (Park, 2008) This percentage makes Americans the most vaccinated group of people in the world. The number of shots required for school age children has doubled since 1980; today’s children will receive up to 28 injections for 11 to 15 diseases by the time they go to kindergarten. Many of these mandatory vaccinations are not safe because of the toxic chemicals, the multiple doses that they are administered in, and the neurological disorders, such as autism, that the immunizations may be causing. One main concern for many parents is the amount of injections that infants and young children are receiving at once. It is very common for the doctor’s office to administer three or even four different vaccinations in one visit. Many doctors and nurses share the concern that it is unhealthy for our children to receive so many shots at one time. One survey taken in Minnesota found that between 60 and 70 percent of the pediatricians, nurses, and parents they asked, felt uncomfortable giving a child more than two vaccinations in one office visit. (Madlon-Kay & Harper, 1994) The simultaneous injections can cause more severe side......

Mandatory Recycling

...Mandatory Recycling “So easy a caveman can do it” is the motto attached to Geico car insurance ads, and now scientific evidence proves this motto is actually true of recycling. The roots of recycling can be traced all the way back to the prehistoric era of the caveman now. The Origins of Recycling conference revealed that they believe our ancestors from the Paleolithic Era practiced recycling. Research has been found that the earliest cavemen reused their tools over and over and transformed them into new objects. It says a great deal that even our early ancestors could see the value in recycling and reusing objects, that even over four hundred and twenty million years ago cavemen could see the benefits to mankind (Ross, 2013, p.1). I want to prove that recycling should be adopted in a smart, efficient, cost-effective manner in both residential and commercial aspects of our city and all others. I will show from prehistoric times to today that recycling always has been and always will be beneficial to people, animals, and our planet. It is a given fact that our population is growing, resources are scarce, more animals are going extinct, and our planet is slowly dying. This is evident by the thinning ozone layer, deforestation, and greenhouse gases. If it’s not recycled, it gets burned or buried, neither of which is good for the environment. The EPA released a stunning statistic on greenhouse gases stating, “ In 2005, recycling was projected to avoid—through a......

...Mandatory Vaccinations As each year passes, and a new one quickly approaches, our world gets more advanced in every way. Our technology becomes faster, smarter, and quicker and with that, our medical strides become bigger and better. Currently, with the help of technology and years of prior research, our medical resources have flourished and with it, the debate over mandatory vaccinations and how they may or may not affect our children. We've been so caught up in the action of being able to choose for ourselves what course we take for our children when it comes to vaccinations, that we have made secondary the consequences of what this choice actually entails. Vaccinations help to protect and prevent the innocent young and the surrounding vulnerable community members from infection, while helping to significantly reduce the risk of outbreaks to people who may be exposed to these potentially deadly illnesses and therefore should be mandatory. Vaccinations should be mandatory because they help keep our school age children safe. Currently, the requirement for entering all public schools is that your child must be vaccinated first. This is a requirement within all fifty states, as marked by the Center for Disease Control. If your child doesn't get vaccinated, they can't start their first day of school. The Food and Drug Administration regulates and licenses all of the vaccines required for children to ensure both "safety and effectiveness." Given our history before vaccines,......

Thus, the Fund will be required to pay in cash $150m to current management. The acquisition of TNS has a relevant impact on the capital structure of the company. The issue of new debt increases leverage ratio to approximately 70%. Similarly, a $100m issue of preference shares accounts for 14% of the post-LBO value of the company, leaving a 16% of the purchase value to be funded from the Fund and current management.

All dancing is made up of stretching and relaxing. Thus, a simple analysis of the term “sayaw” which easily lead one to say that is must have derived from the word “saya” which means happy. A person who is very happy or in the rhythmical movement is an outward expression of his feeling.

Examinable Pe

...‘Examinable Physical Education – A good idea?’ Physical Education (PE) is a subject where you can take part in and learn about physical activities. You learn about how important keeping fit is for the health of your body and mind. In some activities you work on your own and in others you work with your classmates as part of a team. (NCCA) Physical education is now a compulsory subject in all schools in Ireland, and the same is true for most other countries in the world. In countries where P.E is not compulsory, it is often taught as part of the curriculum ‘as a matter of general practice’. (Hardman. K). It is important that these guidelines be adhered to by schools from a young ages i.e. primary schools, as the early years of a child’s life are crucial in the development of fundamental movement skills and the opportunity to develop physical capacities. In some schools however, there are various reasons as to why these necessary requirements are not complied with. These include poor time allocation to P.E as other subjects are seen as more superior and of more importance, lack of assessment procedures, financial reasons e.g. lack of resources such as halls, pitches and courts and also poor equipment available such as nets, balls, rackets etc. Finally one huge factor contributing to the inadequacy of P.E classes or no P.E classes at all may be due to the deficiency in numbers of qualified Physical Education teachers and also negative attitudes from parents and individuals in......

Mandatory Services

...Mandatory Service People are fond of saying that this is a free country. What they are less apt to state is that freedom is not free. There is a cost to maintaining the freedoms we so often take for granted. In furtherance of that cost I would propose a coast amendment that all able-bodied young Americans devote at least two years of their lives in support of their country. That support would be in the form of military or civil duty. This country was founded by individuals who gave their time, money and sometimes lives to create a society where all have the same opportunity to succeed, or at the very least are not barred from succeeding. That opportunity comes with a cost. Monetary cost in the way of taxes to support this system. Also costs in the way of manpower and intellect. It is my belief that the intellectual support is as important, if not more so, then the physical. Alexander Hamilton, John Jay and James Madison’s work in the federalist papers, can be argued, were as important to the American Revolution as any accomplishment on the battlefield. To that I would define able-bodied as anyone not physically or mentally handicapped that can or does hold a full or part time employment or anyone who is not able to hold a job as determined by the Social Security Administration guidelines. I would define young as anyone between the ages of eighteen and twenty-six. Therefore the service could be before people begin college, trade school, or a career. The service can be...

Mandatory Minimums

...Mandatory Minimum Sentencing Katie Miller ENG/130 January 12, 2014 Timothy Resh University of Phoenix Mandatory Minimum Sentencing Mandatory minimum sentencing has led to many unintended results. It has triggered unwarranted disparity in sentencing and contributed greatly to the overcrowding epidemic now facing our prison system. In this paper, the author will explore some of the negative consequences incurred due to mandatory minimum sentencing. Furthermore, the author will examine the effect this has had on non-violent offenders and the burden it has put on both the taxpayers and our prison system. Finally, the author will discuss the overwhelming affect it has had on our judicial system. An Overview Mandatory minimum sentences require a judge to impose a statutorily fixed sentence on offenders convicted of certain crimes, regardless of other mitigating factors. Discussions on mandatory minimum sentencing indicate the purpose to be multifaceted. Using mandatory minimum sentencing reduces crime, especially drug use, controls judicial discretion over certain sentencing decisions, increases prison sentences for serious and violent offenders; and lets everyone know that action is being taken to fight criminal activity. However, it is widely acknowledged that mandatory minimum sentencing laws have not always achieved their objectives and have often resulted in unintended consequences such as sentencing inequities and unduly harsh......

Mandatory Sentencing

...“A mandatory sentence is a court decision setting where judicial discretion is limited by law. Typically, people convicted of certain crimes must be punished with at least a minimum number of years in prison”. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mandatory_sentencing). I am against mandatory sentencing as a mechanism for controlling social deviance for several reasons. In author John Macionis’ Sociology textbook, he refers to sociologist Edwin Sutherland’s “Differential Association Theory”, a theory that states that a person’s propensity toward deviance or conformity is strongly influenced by the amount of association with others who encourage or reject the norms and rules of society. In other words, if you lock up criminals together, they will tend to encourage each other to commit crime. The text also talks about the high rate of recidivism,”3/4s of prisoners in prison have been jailed before, and 2/3s released from prison are arrested again with 3years.” Therefore, the facts seem to support the idea that mandatory sentencing only temporarily gets the criminals off the streets. The problem being, prisons do not succeed at rehabilitating or changing the mindset of a criminal while they’re behind bars, instead, and often times, a more dangerous, and disillusioned person is released back into society. My final argument is in regards to the long term damages done to the criminal and community by these sentences. In most cases, the criminal’s record is permanently......

In a competitive situation, the consistency of hand heights is important as it is an important factor in determining whether a boat will be sat or not. The most important factor in having a balanced boat through the recovery phase is to have consistent hand heights through the boat. Especially in a competitive situation where the rate per minute is typically high. Mahe Drysdale is a very experienced sculler from New Zealand, who is a current olympic champion with 5 word champion titles in a single scull. Despite Mahe’s age of 34 at that time, he is still a world champion not just because of his experience and amount of training, but also due to the fact that he is very consistent on the water. His consistent blade heights allows him for an early catch, which allows him to take full advantage of a stroke.
