A lot of people don’t know that they have to do more with their education and get a good paying job. If you are declined a job that you know you will enjoy, but don 't have the college papers for a job can get disappointing. Some people are not inspired to go to college, and others can’t afford it. Other issues involved with the skills gap for jobs is the high requirements for that area of work, and peoples soft skills. High school is supposed to help you plan you for the real world, but not many classes help teach you the real world.

Have you ever wondered how some athletes have gotten so good at a certain sport? Have you ever thought about what they did in order for them to get this good? For some the answer is simple; workout and train. But for others the answer is different; the use of performance enhancing drugs such as steroids. There are some people that argue that steroids should be legalized and allowed in professional sports. Other people argue that steroids should not be allowed. Today I am going to state my opinion and justify my reason. Steroids should not be allowed in professional sports because it can be very dangerous to the athlete’s health, it is a way to gain and un-fair advantage and it can be dangerous in both social and physical aspects.
Since women are naturally maternal and nurturing they obtained the role as the family’s primary caretaker, while the men became the providers for the home. For centuries these gender roles were strictly stuck too. Women stayed at home and did house work as their husbands went out and had a career. Thankfully, society is starting to shed this ideology on gender roles. More women are starting to work proactively in the “mans world”, but they are straining to advance to high executive positions throughout corporate companies. A lot of this is due to a women’s fertility. While the stereotype of women being strictly housewives has diminished, the mentality that women are too maternal is prevalent in business life. Due to this outlook women are perceived to be unable to take on the stressful pressures business prevails, giving reason to why for years women were only secretaries and clerks in business where they received little room for progression in their careers. A great deal of reasoning behind this struggle is due to the Great Man Theory. Author of “Inequality Between Genders in the Executive Suite in Corporate America: Moral and Ethical Issues” Dean Elmuti, describes this theory as society’s perception that men are the superior beings and should be the protectors and providers, while women are weak, helpless and should stay home to raise the family (1). Consequently, this view has led to an increased emergence of men as business managers and the leaders of the country, thus defending the male dominance in the corporate industry, but also preserving the discrimination against women entering the business domain. This theory and mentality that women can’t handle business life is infuriating. However, what is more distressing is due to...

“He’s 6’2”, has a #4 on his jersey, ran down the field 50 yards, and sneezed when he caught the ball in the end zone with exactly 14 seconds left on the clock! The record has been broken!” It seems like there are awards for every little thing nowadays.
God is good. But why does he allow people, especially the innocent who are only sinners by nature as they cannot or have not become sinners by choice, to suffer? The sins committed by mankind, going all the way back to Adam and Eve, are supposedly the reason as to why God allows people to suffer. God does not maliciously cause this suffering, but he does allow it, and to some that may seem like the same thing. “Since God is the source of goodness, evil can be described as the absence of God” (Janzen, 1999). Those with darkness or evil in their hearts are lacking God, and therefore are allowed to suffer. However, even those who embrace God, practice his word, and try to live their lives as righteously as possible, still suffer. Every day children

Then your eyes catch that red faint light, looking at you with its one eye, the surveillance camera. You can not help but wonder who could be watching you. Technology has come a long way, from the time we used stone tools, and the the first wheel was made. We now have technology that enables us to find any person in the world with a simple camera. We use technology for our own convenience but is it truly only for our own? The technology we use may very well be an instrument used to keep us in check. In the novel, 1984 written by George Orwell, writes about a dystopia that the people are treated harshly and deprived from their
Imagine being involved in so much pain and misery, pharmaceutical tests, vaccine tests, Military experiments and training and brain experiments. 125,000 primates are imprisoned in US laboratories every year. In order to take the Primates at a young age from their natural habits, trappers will shoot the mothers from the tree, shock the animals with dart guns and capture the babies who are still clinging onto their dying mother. Do animals not deserve to be cared for the same way people care for other people? In laboratories, primates go through series of experiments that lead up to their death. 90 percent of primates in laboratories develop psychological issues. After being taken from family, Primates are locked in a small steel cage and left to be alone. At most the primates are given cheap plastic toys, scratched mirrors and occasional fresh fruit such as an apple or banana. Primates will eventually begin to
