This letter is written in support of Quineshia Peterson, an applicant of the American University Strategic Communication Graduate Program. As the Director of Admissions at Valdosta State University, I have had the honor of working with and mentoring Quineshia during the matriculation of her bachelor’s degree, beginning in 2011. As a freshman at Valdosta State it became apparent that Quineshia was a natural born leader with praiseworthy ambition. She served on the executive board of her student Hall Council, and was an active member of Residence Hall Association.

The Ancient Olympic Games celebrated culture and politics as much as athleticism. Examining the Ancient Games through these lenses reveals a contradiction between fostering national Greek unity and the rivalries between Greece’s many city-states. Every four years, tens of thousands of Greeks from hundreds of different city-states came together to compete against each other in sports but also to conduct politics and important business. On the one hand, the Games were grounded in religion and myth, something common to all Greeks across the empire. However, the focus on individual athletes and their victories necessarily served to divide the city-states as they fought for individual honors and prizes.

Cheerleading goes through a lot more than what is shown. Workouts are mandatory at least 2-3 times a week. It is required so stunts can be hit and tumbling fall through. Practice happens every week and if one is missed, you miss new stunts or formations. Cheerleading teams can compete nationally with other cheerleading teams around the world.
The Department of Health, Education, and Welfare issued the initial interpretation of Title IX’s application into intercollegiate athletics. The (HEW), now referred to as Health and Human Services (HHS) faced a decline in 1975 due to institutional compliance issues. These regulations were felt by many universities across the United States and was criticized as “inadequate and vague”. However, Title IX was passed in 1972, the seriousness with certain institutions considered this law while planning their athletic programs has dramatically changed over time with a variety of different court rulings and legislation.
Canada has been through a lot of important events to make it the great known red and white flagged country it is today. Little do people know the history and the hard work it took to make it this way. The way of life that all Canadians appreciate and take advantage for was carved for Canadians by the bloodshed by their great ancestors that knew that one day, it will stand on guard for thee. The battle of Ypres, the achievements of women and the invasion of Normandy, are the most important events in Canadian history that showed their bravery and achievements to form the newly independent country. The battle of Ypres was one of the important battles that Canadians fought in.
Cheerleading and Gymnastics is a display of discipline, practice, and dedication, determination, and athleticism. Many people say that cheerleading and gymnastics are the same thing. I say that they’re not the same thing. They both have some similarities, but they have differences too. Cheerleading and gymnastics have many traits in common, both are very athletic.
Women have come a long way in the fight for equality – in the 1970s women fought for things like equal pay and equal opportunities in the workplace, yet this is still an issue today. This is even relevant to sport as sportsmen earn more than sportswomen for doing the same job. For years’ gender inequality has plagued professional sports, with people suggesting women’s sport is of a lower quality and women will never be as good as their male counterparts. On my cover I decided to blow up a picture of Olympic gold medallist Caster Semenya.
The structure agency debate is complex in its concept. This subjective deliberation is characterised by contrasting notions. The central idea behind this debate is ‘to what extent’. The perception of ‘structure’ which involves to what extent an individual is influenced by social forces within society and the perception of ‘agency’ which involves to what extent an individual is influenced by free will and rationality (Giddens, A. 2001). In this essay, it will be explored the various ways in which structure influences Inspector ‘Fats’ Makaye’s attitude towards his work and the way in which agency influences the contradictory actions to his attitude.

No matter what gender you are, if you are thankful for women’s rights, you can thank Susan B. Anthony. Without her, women would not have an education, a right to vote, or rights in general. Although, for some reason, if you’re not thankful, let’s see if her story can change your mind. At a very young age, Susan B. Anthony started developing a strong sense of morals, and what they should be, but mostly, what they should not be. She and her family moved to Battenville, New York for the sake of her father receiving a better job opportunity.
