    pictures of flawless celebrities and some from coaches who have their own weight criteria. It is up to a coach, a family member, or a health care provider to spot these signs and do something to correct them. In a world where male athletes are considered strrong while female athletes have to be first feminine and then strong. Athletic tennis players such as the Williams sisters, Maria Sharapova, and Anna Kournikova, who is the most photographed female tennis player, have been on a few covers of prominent magazines. All the women mentioned are great at the game of tennis but are pictured wearing something that is provacative or they are wearing nothing at all. The Daily News published an article on Venus Williams comeback after taking a break from tennis due to an autoimmune disorder. The magazines article was on how Venus accepted her disorder and got back to shape to play tennis again. Therefore the article itself was to be inspiring, however the photos of Venus was of her in the nude displaying a slender physique with no flaws. Is this really considered realistic? Anna Kournikova does not make big money from playing tennis, however she does get paid a hefty sum because of her endorsement deals (Student Pulse) not because she plays well but because she is photogenic. In America sex sells and that is what our children see and look up to everytime they see an ad or read a magazine. Unfortunately these disorders can have a lasting effect and it is an ongoing struggle to not…

I don 't feel like I fit my name. I don 't resemble the picture of grace or favor. I know for a fact that my name and personality have no correlation, mostly due to the fact that I trip on stairs, wake up looking like I’m half dead, and can’t text and walk at the same time. Needless to say, my identity and name comes…

    However, one novel in particular that sparked world literature fame was Anna Karenina (1877). Anna Karenina was and still is a masterpiece because it incorporates all the elements of humanity such as lustful passions, pride, conflict, marriage, and death. An in depth analysis of Anna Karenina is that it was a heavily controversial novel. Convoluted plot lines, character development, relationships, and social commentary, gave meaning to this novel. The concept of writing this novel came to…

    In the 1980's we had cocaine. It was pure, cheap and plentiful. Now, due to Ronald Reagans infamous "war on drugs" campaign (among many other things), cocaine as we once knew, is long gone. However, addiction is a subtle beast. It's resilient in all its ways and finds new methods to persevere. In the modern age, we have our addictions, although it is not so much to cocaine. Instead, it's technology. Just look around anywhere in the world and you'll come across someone with their phone glued to…

    I found the ending of Black Beauty, by Anna Sewell, to be a satisfying ending. It seemed to wrap things up nicely. After Beauty is injured and nearly overworked to death, he ends up in a beautiful home surrounded by people who care for him for the rest of his life. Although it is rather bittersweet, as the last line reminds us of everything Beauty has lost: “often, before I am quite awake, I fancy I am still in the orchard at Birtwick, standing with my old friends under the apple trees” (49.22).…

In Anna Lombard, the dynamic of problematic sexuality and desire are enacted in the relationship between Anna and Gerald, and Victoria Cross questions the stringent British views towards gender roles by embedding the female character of Anna with the sexual appetite that is approved of in a male. In Burma, Gerald is told that he must “settle down, take a wife, and live regularly” rather than fretting over a girl abroad (Cross 36). Here the word “regular”…

    Identity is a common technical term used in contemporary sociological social psychology. The term “personal identity” was virtually unknown in sociology before the 1940s. (ERIKSON 5).
