This framework includes 5 levels. The individual, interpersonal, institutional, structural and cultural, these areas are used to investigate the ways in which inequities challenge the area of sport and physical activity. I know from personal experience some of my sport choices has been affected from these levels, either because of cost or because the only facilities for these sports were not near the area that we lived in. When it comes to athletics, I haven’t personally been always engaged in this for various reasons, pressure from others watching you as it is an induvial sport. As I have been more interested in other team sports such as basketball getting better in these sports had become a priority.

Media contribute to maintain that system. Media has a great influence upon the audience and it could be judge from what that is not said, so media works to maintain the status quo and at the same time it failed to raise the question about the structure of society. Commercially sponsored mass media cannot work for minor changes in the social system. Some media can be progressive only if the sponsors are agreed upon. Impact on Popular taste
Magic says that going to college could be hard, but if people believed in themselves, they could be successful. The author also says that it's difficult to get into a basketball career when there are too many players but with a careers people may get a job that their could be successful. The author’s point of view about this topic is that people should have a college degree even if their occupation doesn't require them to have one. As I noticed in the previous paragraph, college may be hard, but everybody can have the opportunity to get educated. Even if people don’t know what they want to do study in college, they study different subjects and latter can select a careers of their choice.
Somehow they were being given chances to make sure they would be the ones to win and leave the Celtics in the shadow. In this game the officials took the side of the super star Kobe Bryant, and didn’t call all of the fouling and some of the flagerents that Kobe Bryant did in that game, and the foul’s were as clear as day. The Celtics should have taken the championship but the Lakers swiped it away from them. Not only did this happen in the battle between these two teams, it also happened between the Miami Heat v. the San Antonio Spurs. In particular, it was clear that Miami at that time could beat the Spurs, but some how the Spurs took the win and with that the championship.
My experiences growing up did not help me develop my diversity consciousness as much as I would've liked. Getting a college education and learning about diversity in this class and my human resources class have helped me develop an understanding that people and businesses must understand that the world, and specifically America, is diverse and we must learn and grow to help make it a successful achievement. The most difficult challenge for me will be stepping out of my comfort zone. I'm not exactly a hermit, but I do like to keep to myself a lot of time. I will need to put myself out there, ask questions when I don't have any clue what I'm talking about, and be more open to talking to different people.
Gregg Popovich has a very unique leadership philosophy. Although many people may think that Popovich comes off as a curmudgeon, his philosophy is what has lead people to believe that he could be the greatest coach of the NBA. Gregg Popovich has a good way of mentoring and coaching his team. He seems to always find a way to motivate his players in ways that only him and his players would understand. Something that I think is extremely important is the way that Gregg Popovich handles failure.
Maxwell explains that our attitudes are our inward feelings expressed as outward behaviors. They develop based on a variety of factors including our genetics, environment, and experiences. Furthermore, our mindset is not the only thing that matters because there are some things it cannot do for us. It cannot replace competence nor can it change the facts. Our attitudes cannot substitute for personal growth nor will they stay good automatically.
In today’s society, the media portrays a perfect body to be fully fit, muscular, and slim. These characteristics pierce. While they may not be necessarily bad for our physical being, they attack our mentalities. In such ways that we do not fit the media’s “perfect body” description. Although, advertisement such as the ESPN Body Issue shows and encourages us that it does not matter how you look on the outside, even the best players are not perfect; they remind us that being yourself is the best confidence you can have.
“We can’t get over basketball rivalries, or ‘the people in Harlan are snoots and the people in Evarts, look down their nose at us,’,” Daniel Howard said while explaining his experiences with sport rivalries. Although the rivalry most known in Harlan County weren’t through college football, it still supports the argument that rivalries and competitiveness in this area
Getting acquired from three different NBA teams and eventually leading towards getting cut from two and on the verge of the third, Lin came off the bench to produce a record-breaking streak of wins that opened up an opportunity for a playoff berth. Unfortunately, Lin’s ethnicity had more of an impact on viewers than his actual performance on the courts. Due to the fact that African Americans dominate basketball, while Asian Americans represent less than one percent of the NBA and even Division 1 Men’s Basketball. Linsanity represents the journey of Jeremy Lin not just his record-breaking performance, but how he demonstrated a counter hegemony ideology by pursuing a nontraditional Asian career. Therefore, the unbelievable phenomenon of Linsanity presents a unique opportunity to observe the construction of Asian American identity by: revealing the racial hegemony involved within the sport of basketball, which lead towards the transition to a more colorblind society, and how Linsanity is gradually breaking the curse of the Asian American
NBA player Jabari Parker said,"It doesn 't get any easier,but I will get stronger." Once again,I see challenges as a way of getting stronger.
I couldn 't endure those athletes with slogans of "challenge oneself, surpass oneself " before; considering them as insatiable rebels with over-competitiveness who create barriers for the world to achieve social tranquility. As for me myself, I thought I was a person with great wisdom and foresight back then; for I only put in the precise force that are barely enough to rub through situations without bothering too much. After all, with the strategies of leaving myself some leeway, life wouldn 't get too tiring. And this conserving life philosophy has seemingly benefited me all along, until the appearance of Coach Chavez, a rather talkative Track coach who has just recently graduated from college. With a different impression compares to the rigid ness and strictness from other coaches, I was even more certain that it 's an unexpected luck for me to join track after the first conditioning: not only because my coach 's easygoingness, but also for
Raising the rim would lower the scores, and would make players look less athletic” (Frasor 1). Which is true, everybody loves interesting high scoring games packed with highlights, and changing the rim to to 11 feet is going to take this away from them, including the players because of the amount of time it is going to take the players to get used to shooting and dunking on an 11 foot rim. Frasor adds to his argument by saying, “If basketball were too easy for professional players, then you could make an argument to raise the basket, but that is not the case” (Frasor 1). If the NBA were to raise the rim then it would prove that the NBA is too easy for the players. This is definitely not the case considering that the 2016 Philadelphia 76ers were 10-72 and last season it took them 16 games to get a win, in addition to many teams being under .500, meaning they had more losses than wins.
