Fat acceptance: A basic primer Critique essay Cynara Geissler’s article “Fat Acceptance: A Basic Primer” was first published in Geez Magazine in 2013. Geissler addresses a lot of issues about fat acceptance and how it is affecting our society and people’s attitudes towards over-weight people.

The Current Population Survey only accounts for people who reside in households which leaves out a significant portion of the American public. Due to the unprecedented incarcerated population in our country today, these statics representing the American public are not quite correct, especially
(“10 Critical Pros And Cons Of Illegal Immigration” ). The number of immigrants that do not pay their taxes is too limited for it to be considered a burden to our economy. Most of them also do not even receive back their taxes, they just pay them. The cost of deporting all of them would be too immense. There are millions of undocumented immigrants living in the U.S.A., it would be almost impossible to deport every single one of them.

The implicit association test (IAT) is a test that is designed to detect the strength of one's automatic association between concepts.

Han 's recklessness conquered his logical reasoning for the sake of academic prestige. Similarly, in an informative article posted by CNN in 2011 by Elizabeth Cohen and Miriam Falco, Dr. Andrew Wakefield was bribed by lawyers who wanted to sue vaccine companies. Cohen and Falco explain that Wakefield received "payments by lawyers and through legal aid grants that … he hoped would benefit him through diagnostic and other tests for autism and MMR-related issues" (Cohen and Falco).
