I am doing a debate on whether or not football punters deserve more credit than they get. I think the punters definitely deserve more credit they are always overlooked and they do the same amount of practice as the rest of the football team. i think that punters are overlooked in football because they just play when they punt and to score a field goal. what most people don 't consider is that they practice with everybody else they are also on the field as much as some of the players.

Which is why I think he walked into the wild the way he did. When in school, he brought home nothing but good grades constantly. Alex was very assertive that he could live in the wild because he was positive that he could succeed in everything else.

Candide had witnessed or experience a mass of misfortunes, and the horrors told by the slave was the final straw for Candide. Candide “cried” that “it is the end.” Candide was emotional in the moment where he realized he no longer could believe in the philosophy in optimism, and he “renounced thy optimism.” He cried because his whole belief system had been proven wrong, and Candide was left with nothing. There were no more reasons to explain why terrible things happened.
During his journey to the NFL Jason Pierre Paul used many habits of mind to help him get through his problems. He used persisting because he could have easily given up and retired, but he didn’t. He also used the habit of mind striving for accuracy because he had to try a lot harder as a result of his hand impediments.

Stephen Curry is an anomaly. He pulls opposing players into his orbit based on the threat of his shooting and exerts gravity over the entire floor as he darts around on offense. In terms of forcing other team 's coaches to make adjustments, Curry might be the most impactful player since Shaquille O 'Neal, whose mix of size and nimbleness had never been seen before or since.

I believe the book Ender’s Game is more exceptional than the film because of the development of characters and events that happens in the book, and the hardship Ender faces to become a great leader against the buggers. Throughout the story of Ender’s Game, Ender is constantly being isolated by Colonel Graff in order for Ender to think, make decisions, and respond to situations by himself. This isolation is to prepare Ender to become a great leader in battle. In the story, Graff orders to have Ender’s monitor taken out to observe how Ender responds to mistreatment from bullies.
This was a battle where the players were merciless until someone was hurt. Then with good intentions, someone would help the injured player up and the game would continue. In this war it wasn 't about territory or money or rebelliousness. It was about winning.
