(2013) Many of the sedentary and lack of physical activity among college students can also stem from the lack of awareness. In 2007 the Healthy People initiative started a sister campaign known as Healthy Campus. The main focus of Healthy Campus was to help improve the health of staff, students, and faculty on campuses nationwide. Healthy Campus 2020 deals with a lot of areas concerning college campuses mental and physical health. In terms of physical activity, Healthy Campus promotes the increase in the number of students who participate in moderate to vigorous physical activity.
The main idea that Marc Mauer was discussing during his lecture was about the American prison system needs to be fix. America has the largest prisoner population in a develop country. The main issue is that people of color has a greater chance to be in jail because the environment they were raised in. Some people of higher class have the income to help them not receive any sentences while a person of color may have a greater chance to go to jail due to the lack of access of resources. People who are send to jail they receive a harsh prison sentence because some places have a three strike system.
Jarecki believe that because private prisons make a profit from having more inmates it stand to reason that a prison would do whatever must be done to ensure that their beds are filled and if this means promoting the war on drugs so that more people would be in these prisons than it’s something that must be done. They interview several prison inmates and many of them do agree that they were harshly convicted just to serve the purpose of filling these beds. Is this wrong? In the film and in Jarecki’s opinion this is really
The drug trade created other issues besides violence. Drug trade also imposed high costs such as an increase in security costs. Economic, political and social uncertainty rose. There were increases in smuggling and deterrents to both foreign and domestic investment. The government used its resources to fight this problem but so many people were involved in the drug cartel due to poverty and inequality, that it was difficult for the government to stop the war on drugs.
Today, more than one out of every 100 Americans is behind bars, and the US has the largest prison population in the world. Prison overcrowding not only affects the economy but it causes issues within the prison as well. According to Angela Davis, “Prison overcrowding leads to several issues such as racial tensions, filth, or stress… which is an obstacle to rehabilitation work, therefore more inmates will come back into prison shortly after their release”.
College athletics are a viable part of that institution and this writer does not believe the institution would disagree with that statement. Having college athletics is hard on any college, because there are many things that come with having sports programs. However, at a community college it can be more difficult than if a four year institution was starting up a athletic programs. Community College is a way kids coming out of highschool have a chance to still be able to play the sport they love and help them grow in that sport . College athletics are more of an influence for young teens, than anything else the school can offer the kids.
I was always an active child and played sports in middle school and high school. I labeled my physical wellness as my third strongest factor mainly because I do not like to work out for just my health. During high school, I would become physically fit by only playing the sports I enjoyed. However, when that sport was over, I would immediately stop working out and would quickly get out of physical shape. Therefore, I only enjoy physical activities when I am participating in a sport.
The word incarceration and racism also link together to explain how as a result of the War on Drugs, the U.S. is one of the top countries with the highest imprisonment rate and more African-Americans or low-class minorities are convicted of drug crimes than any other ethnicity or social class. Since, the majority of African-Americans live in areas of drug involvement, they are more likely to be racially profiled and investigated. This has created an uneven ethnic ratio in prisons and produced stereotypes that affect children that prevent them from becoming abiding citizens.
Human trafficking produces billions of dollars in profit every year, it is right behind drug trafficking as the most lucrative form of crime throughout the world. (DHS website). Victims of human trafficking rarely come forward due to the threats of murder, threats of killing their loved ones/friends, as well as having nowhere else to go because they have been ostracized from their own family and their “pimp” is their family. Another issue of why victims do not come forward is that they are afraid of law enforcement so they may go to jail, etc. (DHS website) Thesis Statement When people think of human trafficking, many people think of just sex trafficking, but human trafficking also includes labor trafficking, which means being forced to
In closing, human trafficking has taken the world by storm. It is a billion dollar business that seems to bring the worst out of people from the ones that are involved in the trafficking and the ones that are abusing the victims. Slavery ended in the early part of the 1800; however, more people are being forced into slavery in this day in age than ever before. The people that supports this type of criminal activity can be company CEO’s, royalty, athletes, celebrities, DOD employees, military or just the everyday citizen. Victims can be anyone even though mostly women and young girls are recruited; however, a small percentage of men and little boys are also victims.
“Black Lives Matter” (BLM) is an international activist movement, originating in the African American community, that campaigns against violence toward black people”(Petersen-Smith,1). Over the years, since the black power struggle “Between 1970 and 2005, the prison population increased by a historically unprecedented 700 percent. According to the Bureau of Justice Statistics, roughly half of federal prisoners are incarcerated for drug offenses”(Petersen-Smith,3). This was due to inequality and police officers abusing their power. “Black youth are ten times more likely than white youth to be arrested for drug crimes” according to the ISR (International Socialist Review).
Human resources are arguably, the most important aspect of any business, and nobody understands that better than the sports industry. Many companies often overlook the importance of their employees, but the ones that have figured it out like Google, Boston Consulting Group and SAS, who continuously rate among the top for Fortune Magazine 's: 100 best companies to work for, see a positive correlation in company performance because they understand that happy employees equal satisfied customers and lead to more revenue for the company. Unfortunately, the College Football Hall of Fame fell in the majority of companies that don 't stress the importance of human resources. If given a grade for how human resources were handled at The College Football Hall of Fame, it would get a "C." There were components that were well organized, such as the recruiting and payroll strategy, but other areas such as scheduling and performance evaluation that were organized poorly. One of the smart, strategic moves the College Football Hall of Fame made was to target and recruit recent college graduates in the sports related majors, current college students and seasoned hospitality/service industry workers, which gave the company a good mixture of youth and experience.
People see things on TV, the Internet, or in magazines of these amazing athletes or bodybuilders who are bigger than a building, and they want to look and be just like them. So, many athletes will train for years and years, and spend hours in the gym, but they don’t get the results that they see in the media. This is when many athletes will turn to the use of steroids. Even though the Federal Government has given a lot of money to aid in research on steroid use, there has not been sufficient evidence to deter athletes from using them. But, the list of side effects of steroids is lengthy, such
Many felons go back to the same iniquitous behavior because after they served their time society still punish them with voting rights, the ability of carrying a gun, or even basic as getting an apartment. I truly believe in some cases, not having a second chance results in having a high unemployment and crime rate. The idea that people deserve a second chance is an important American value. In 2010, there were over 2 million individuals classified as a felon in the United States. When is America going to wake up and realize our brothers and sisters need help?
What is the “story” of your project or program? I am writing to you on behalf of the Contra Costa Athletic Organization. Our coaching staff’s ultimate goal is to bring a group of male adolescents together by teaching them responsibility, respect, and encouraging them to work together as one so that they can grow into outstanding athletes, and students. This year, we have managed to inspire over 80 students of various cultural and economic backgrounds to be a part of this organization. While student’s dedication and commitment are vested in our athletic program, many of our players come from low-income families, and they cannot afford to purchase the items needed to participate in our program.
