Lou overcame childhood challenges, became one of the greatest players to ever play the game, and shed a light on a terrible disease are all examples on how Lou Gehrig is a true sports
Humans aren’t perfect…yet. If the Australian government allows for human testing to be swept under the rug, then the entire Australian aesthetic of ‘mateship’ may as well be burnt alongside the Australian Constitution. No longer does our constitution embody that human life is the most important ‘thing’, but that it is merely a ‘thing’. Evidently, the introduction of embryo engineering would cause devastation not only politically but biologically, thus leaving a void in human decency and morality. Furthermore, with social politics dictating to most people how the ‘perfect’ person looks, parents will manipulate their child’s benign characteristics to match these temporary stereotypes.
These people think they’re legends after striking out a kid who has never swung a bat in his life. Kids that do this just make me want to punch someone. Then there is the kid that plays center field, and right field, and left field. They won’t even give anyone else a chance to field a ball. Gym tryhards can just take out the fun in a game.
He wasn’t only responsible for possibly the greatest baseball era this world has ever seen, he is responsible for paving a way for new African Americans to join the league.

Gene therapies that are specified for in vitro fertilized embryos are known as reproductive technologies. Reproductive technologies involves specific procedures that are not that new to science but are causing a whole new debate as to morality of the procedures. In vitro fertilization and pre-implantation genetic diagnosis are types of reproductive technologies that are frequently used. The part that is causing the debate is people are thinking the use of these technologies will lead to unnecessary procedures on in vitro fertilized embryos. The unnecessary procedures would consist of changing the eye, hair, or skin color of the child.
Therefore, if two parents are carriers of a certain gene that will disable their child, they can modify that gene to make a child that will not have that disability. As well as some parents will have designer babies to save another child they already have with a certain disease. In this method, parents will choose their child’s blood type and such in order for them to match that other diseased child and potentially give them their blood, marrow, and even organs. Genetically modifying a child’s chance of disease ensures that a child may live a life without potential disease and disability that they may have been more prone to had their parents’ not used this method. This also ensures a healthy life for a child that had a greater potential of having a medical condition due to their parents being carriers of that particular gene.
AS91101 - 2.4 Writing Portfolio Piece Two - Cooper Title: Drugs in sports Drugs have become an integral part of any modern day sporting event. Drugs give an unfair advantage to the user and the competitors that are using enhancements are not using their own full abilities to win the Olympic medal or championship. This makes it unfair to other competitors that are not using a drug or other enhancements to compete.

Such as liver failure and development of breasts.
Firstly, it is the question of people’s professional interest. Actually, many thinkers and scientists are scratching their heads in order to find an exact answer on this dilemma. Perhaps one can imagine gratification they get, when someone finds the solution and it is finally over - it is like solving the Rubik’s Cube. Secondly, chicken or egg dilemma could help in understanding a right direction of development and expanding the general knowledge. If people discover that scientific theory is the right one and egg is the winner, then biological dissidents, not believing in evolutionary theory, might change their minds to confirm their mistakenness.
Picture this every athlete in sports using drugs no one depends on skill anymore everyone depends on performance enhancing drugs like adrenaline and steroids. Many athletes today use drugs to enhance their skills in all sports.

Banning drugs in sports can make a difference in the athlete 's health Drugs like steroids could decrease the user 's lifespan Performance enhancers, like steroids and other forms of doping have a negative effect on long term health ¨Gary Becker, PhD Professor in the Departments
He would spend days practicing to become the best. Baseball thought that he could become the best as long as he didn’t give up. Jeter became a leader and a good friend to everyone. He was friends with anyone even if the kid was mean. Jeter became the best short-stop ever.
There are numerous big time players that used steroids in the 90’s like Gary Sheffield, Jose Canseco, and Jason Giambi, who also aided to the destruction of the game America so dearly loves. Steroid use puts the honest and hardworking players on the back burner. Many outstanding players of this time period will be left off the Hall of Fame despite their solid careers, they were simply overlooked by the record breaking home runs and padded stats of the steroid era. The use of steroids in baseball is cheating. Plain and simple.
"Yond Cassius has a lean and hungry look; He thinks too much: such men are dangerous" (Julius Caesar). This quote represents how the Royals were a dangerous team and how others may have feared them. The battle that the conspirators fought in the book to get Julius Caesar out of power was hard fought and strenuous. The journey to the World Series championship was also hard fought and well deserved. The 1985 Royals worked their rear ends off to get to where they were and have a chance at winning a World Series and they weren’t about to let that chance slip
