As stated in the text, the Games helped "federate the Greek Empire." The Games attracted many tourists, especially when it was held in its hometown.

The Greeks made a truce " allowing competitors to make their way in relative safety from their hometowns to the site of the Games."

It’s extraordinary how much money we spend on things that are completely unnecessary to our survival. Not every house needs a TV in every room and not all students need a personal computer. However we as people are greedy by nature and therefor do end up spending tons of money on things like that. This is promoted more and more through social media, TV, magazines, newspapers, etc… Yet we could be spending more (if not all) of our extra money of helping others who have nothing. Peter Unger a New York University Philosopher calculated the cost to save a child’s life “By his calculation, $200 in donations would help a sickly two-year-old child transform into a healthy six-year-old” (Singer).
Another factor that makes people do not need this skill anymore, is the fact that the programs shown on the television do not have any real content, they are already made to distract people without make them think about what are they watching. One example also from Fahrenheit 451 is when Mildred invites her friends to her house, and their attentions are focused on the television, but when Montag stops to listening what are they talking about, and their conversation is " ‘Doesn 't everyone look nice!’ ‘Nice.’ ‘You look fine, Millie!’ ‘Fine.’ ‘Everyone looks swell.’ ‘Swell!’ " (Bradbury, “Fahrenheit 451” 93).

In other words, people are not able anymore to think in something to talk to, they cannot interpret subjects enough to have a conversation between each other.
The Grand Debate The grand debate of whether to pay college athletes continues today. Yet, today there are so many other amenities provided to the athletes that they are practically paid through those. College coaches receive sky high salaries, the booster clubs donate millions of dollars to the university 's athletic program but those who are actually performing and competing do not get paid. As a former athlete, I do not think college athletes should be paid. Most already have paid tuition and amenities.
The get paid in free education.” This is just a borderline disrespectful statement and the NCAA could have said something completely different and respectful. This is disrespectful because it seems like they are making a joke out of a very controversial topic that more than 460,000 athletes face everyday. Not every athlete comes from a 5 figure background and can count on their parents to help their payments. Most athletes are only in college because of the scholarships they receive and need to make it work on their own. They could be helped by the NCAA with at least a monthly stipend to help with the costs of
