Should pros be allowed to draft college athletes before they graduate. I believe that the pros shouldn’t be allowed. My reasoning is that players need time to develop & think about what’s best for them. Another reason is that players should graduate first so that if the sport they play doesn’t work out then they have a college degree for a back up career in something else. There are plenty of good reasons but something that players should think more about is the longer you stay in college the more developed & ready for the pro sport you dream of going into.
Throughout the story there are special themes, motifs, and symbols that show how extensively Jacobs worked on this piece of text.

Daisy is unhappy in her marriage to Tom because he is not committed to her. She then has an affair with Gatsby because of that unhappiness. “Gatsby was taught to measure success failure and virtue in pecuniary terms.” ( Berman 33). If you did not have money it was thought that you failed in life.
In King Lear, Lear is depicted as a very foolish and arrogant man. This is evident when Lear eats up the words of Regan and Goneril, who are lying about how they feel, when he asks his daughters to show who loves him the most. However, when his daughter Cordelia, who is Lear’s favorite daughter, does not play a long with Lear’s games as she believes her actions show her feelings toward her father more then words, Lear quickly dismisses her and decides to only give land to Regan and Cordelia. This clearly shows Lear’s arrogance and foolishness as he falls for the sap of his detached daughters and turns away from the daughter that actually loves him. In a Thousand Acres Larry Cook is depicted as more of a monster instead of a fool.
Lear wants his daughters to fill his pride by having his daughters tell him how much they love him, even if they are lying. This sense of pride is Lear’s tragic flaw and it will eventually lead him to his own demise. As the play progresses, King Lear will succumb to madness as he slowly realizes he was selfish and gave credit to the wrong daughters. Chin-Yi, a scholar at the National University of Singapore states “Madness thus paradoxically comes with insight, it is only in madness that Lear apprehends the truth, while in sanity he had been blind to the superficial flatteries of Goneril and Regan” (Chin-Yi). This is very true, as King Lear appears to show his first signs of madness upon being treated poorly by Goneril and Regan.
They felt that she had better opportunities awaiting her in the future and they took that as a reason to cause her harm. However, in “Jealous Guy”, the main character unintentionally hurts his wife because he loves her so much and was afraid to lose her. Lennon sings, “I began to lose control… You might not love me anymore… I 'm sorry that I made you cry… I didn 't want to hurt you”. He was subsequently regretful of what he had done and never intended for anything of the sort to occur.
A game without support is not a real game and is not as much fun as if there were supporter. Of course, fans are not everything, and an athlete should be able to play and fight hard even though there is not any support since it is their job to play for the college and in the best-case win. Every athlete receives a scholarship for playing for the school and for which all students are thankful. However, investing in facilities would bring more support to each game and therefore the atmosphere would increase. That is what athletes work for, a though game with people who support them no matter what and where they have to push through this situation to win this game.

Birth order, and growing up with a sibling affects intellectual achievement because having a sibling pushes an individual to strive to reach their fullest potential. In an experiment, researchers viewed 76 pairs of siblings to look at certain personality traits. The findings were that younger siblings had more academic success. “Younger siblings might earn better grades, because they received mentoring from first-borns who already had to tackle certain subjects, the researchers say. Also, later born children might feel extra pressure to be competitive, and might try to out-do their older siblings in the hopes of gaining extra attention from parents.”
Granville soon became what he had fled from at the beginning of the movie. He left his job due to his superior’s willful ignorance, and soon became just as ignorant himself in the pursuit of his dream. He ultimately became a hypocrite, if a well meaning one. Dr. Dalrymple’s distinguished establishment practiced an absurd treatment, little less so than using leeches to suck out illnesses. At the end of the movie, Emily states that she had been living for her father, doing what he wanted.
Aspiration; it means longing for something with great ambition, that you’re willing to do whatever it takes to achieve what you strongly desire. Even if it means leaving behind part of your life, those whom you’ve grew to love, and even changing who you are inside. In the novel, Great Expectations, the author, Charles Dickens, introduces us to Pip, whose selfish aspiration for materialistic success and high power only lead him to later relive the life he was trying so hard to escape. Dickens uses diction and metaphors to illustrate Pip’s change of perspective, along with a feeling of guilt and eventual self destruction that he experienced as his desire for materialistic success became a necessity while rising in social status.
