“Many of the rites of passage, those rituals of growing up found in our society, are in the form of such comic, practical joking affairs--which we ignore in the belief that they possess no deeper significance. Yet it is precisely in their being regarded as unimportant that they take on importance. For in them we ritualize and dramatize attitudes which contradict and often embarrass the sacred values which we proclaim through our solemn ceremonies and rituals of nationhood.” -Ralph Ellison, on initiations at West Point, 1969. Hazing in sports and in college can be good and bad. If they are taken to far and people have to break laws of be beaten or sustain major physical injuries then it would be good to have

There is no doubt about it, Roy Hobbs from The Natural by Bernard Malamud and Alex Rodriguez are both fantastic baseball players. Both players however, flew to close to the sun and fell from public favor. Since both players excelled in their time, became the best of the best, and then both fell from grace and had to start from the bottom again, some might say that Roy and A-Rod are basically the same person. I think that even though both players made almost career ending mistakes, Rodriguez learned from his mistakes and was given a chance at redemption. Also, Rodriguez is able to see a life past baseball while Roy can’t see himself doing anything else.
It was a quiet and gloomy night at the Verizon Center, home of the Washington Capitals. The plan was to win the nights game and put an end to what would become the franchise’s longest losing streak since October of 2009. After 40 minutes, former head coach of the Capitals and present coach of the Minnesota Wild, Bruce Boudreau, had something to talk about with his team. He was unhappy with the performance of his players, more specifically the look of defeat that overcame his top guys. What followed would be one of the most inspirational speeches the National Hockey League has ever seen. After a brief moment consisting of yelling, undeviating F-bombs and frustration, Boudreau’s argument had been heard loud and clear by his
In Jacoba Urist’s “The Art and Science of Apologizing” which was published in The Atlantic in 2016, he talks about what is the best way to make an apology perfect. There are many factors that people don’t think about when they are about to apology, which includes: the moment in which they are going to apologize, repetition, and making sure the person you are apologizing to actually accepts the apology. After reading Urist’s essay and then going to read Harvey Weinstein’s apology that he wrote after being accused of sexual harassment against multiple women, which was published in The New York Times, one could see the significant differences that Weinstein’s apology should be like as compared to how Urist says one should be. Weinstein’s apology has more weaknesses than it does strengths and the many problems, which includes apologizing too early, not acknowledging the women that were assaulted and not showing responsibility and remorse are all wrong according to Urist’s paper on how an apology should sound. Al of these issues causes Weinstein’s apology to be a sad attempt of an apology that will not be accepted by society.
Acts of injustice happen all the time. Many of the times no one chooses to speak up against the action. This is not because people do not find anything wrong with these actions, but rather because they do not realize what is going on in their brain.

After doing nothing we are then exposed to the results of our injectors making us feel guilty leading us to speak out in the future.
