There have been many instances of doping at the Olympics. The IOC began drug tests at the 1968 Games and since then, several individual athletes and teams have been disqualified and stripped of their medals. For years, Russia has been accused of doping their athletes. “Whistleblowers have alleged that up to 99 percent of Russian athletes have taken performance-enhancing drugs, with one explaining, ‘You can’t be on the national team without using [performance-enhancing drugs]. If you don’t take them, you have no future in sport.’”
“We cannot constantly supervise everybody that is in football… That is impossible”. Those were the words that FIFA’s former president and another time candidate said a couple of months ago in one of his conferences.

The International Federation of Association Football also known as FIFA is completely infested of dishonest and nefarious people; thieves that call themselves “top officials”.

The Parkland shooting in Florida. A tragic school shooting in mid-February of 2018 has the whole country spinning circles around more gun control. My opinion and stand point on this subject is to open readers eyes to the fact that it simply will not work. The students pushing for more gun control are starting marches that have affected the schools around the nation in a walkout in March of 2018. This walkout was for the awareness that students don’t feel safe in their hometown schools and also bringing awareness for the seventeen students who lost their lives during the shooting.

With all of this fear, how could Maximilien Robespierre possibly have a downfall? As the last two months of the terror came, the tyrant started to blame himself for the thousands of deaths. He passed the Law of the Twenty Second Prairial, which stated that all rights of the accused victim were washed away, making the executions go even faster (Linton). After the Committee of Public Safety passed this, Robespierre never attended another meeting. In his last few weeks, he rarely left his assigned room.

This issue of wealth can be seen in an article in which Robert Richards an heir of a wealthy family inheritance received a lenient sentence despite the gravity of his crimes. As stated by the article, “He received an eight-year prison sentence in 2009 for raping his toddler daughter, but the sentencing order signed by a Delaware judge said "defendant will not fare well" in prison and the eight years were suspended...echoed a recent case in which a wealthy teenager driving drunk killed four but received no jail time” (Conlon and Gallman). Despite the seriousness of his crimes, Richards faced a lenient sentence. This corruption and injustice can be stemmed from his wealth as the judge argues Richards’ wealth corresponds to how incapable he is to fare a longer and more severe sentence. This demonstrates how Richards’ wealth had excused him of a proper sentence and deprived the victim of the justice they deserved.
Rice, who played for the Baltimore Ravens, only received a two game suspension after video came out in 2014 proving his crime. Meanwhile Buffalo Bills player Seantrel Henderson in 2016 was banned from the NFL for using medical Marijuana, prescribed for Crohn 's disease. Its instances like this since the beginning Goodell 's tenure in 2006, that displays his lack of commitment to ethics in the professional sports industry. Goodell and his administration, have shown that profits and viewership take precedent over the well beings of people associated with the
Penn State restored their 112 football wins that had been stripped from Sandusky and Paterno although NCAA hit Penn State with a $60 million fine to fund child abuse-prevention programs. The University must reduce 10 initial and 20 total scholarships each year for a four-year period. Sandusky was an assistant coach to Paterno for many years and he was greatly looked upon. After this scandal I think that Penn state being punished for their actions were more than okay, the athletic office of Penn state covering up and hiding what Sandusky had been doing is morally not okay. Everyone is taught right from wrong, when you lie about something there will be consequences, Penn State coved up this scandal for too long and got hit hard.
After the release of the story to the public, Norbert Doyle admits to all of his actions he did in the past including the murder of his wife and the number of illegal drugs he used. Due to these circumstances, Norbert Doyle receives a suspension for most of the year, which involves him missing the rest of the regular season. It was obvious his suspension upset him because of his prior actions: “Doyle made a nice big dent in the locker in the locker room, but he was ready to embrace his consequences and watch his team play without him for the remainder of the regular season” (Feinstein 310). When Steve interviewed Norbert Doyle, Doyle claimed that he had to be optimistic and ardent for the future and that he had to be ready when he is able to pitch. However, Doyle is available to pitch in the postseason after his regular season ban, and when Doyle makes his first start in the postseason, he only gives up two runs in seven innings.
On September 3, 1929, the day that was known as Black thursday, would forever change the United States economy and its very history. Supreme distress and turmoil would very accurately describe the stock exchange environment that day as some sixteen million shares were traded and investors were wiped out. The morning of the crash the market was doing considerably well rising people were buying, then the market started to decline and then a complete drop, which caused average Americans to lose lots of money. That day caused businesses to close banks to shut their doors and people were left to the streets for the next few years America would be in financial turmoil.
Former Texas Governor and two-time Republican presidential candidate Rick Perry came out of hiding after suspending his campaign to speak at Value Voter Summit Friday afternoon in Washington, D.C. Speaking as a non-presidential candidate, Perry called on all conservatives to stand by a candidate that wouldn’t divide the party. Without mentioning names, Perry renewed the rivalry against the Republican front-runner Donald Trump. During his brief run, Perry would tried to take on Trump, but that led to his poll numbers dropping, which ultimately led to Perry being the very first candidate to bow out the race earlier this month. “We see in our politics today a lot of agitation,” Perry said to the 2,500 social conservative attendees on Friday,
