Skateboarders have built a dependency on street infrastructure, like stairs and ledges, in order to perform their tricks. Many cities have found a quick but rather futile solution to the complaints made by business owners and pedestrians; make skating illegal! The dramatic growth in skateboarders around the country has proved this method to be insufficient
This issue has brought about much conflict. Many people see it as a positive thing; however, the breathalyzer at school dances should be eliminated. A dance is a sage, chaperoned place for students to hang out but the breathalyzer is turning many away from attending these dances. Many students feel as if the breathalyzer is an invasion of their privacy and reject the idea completely. Many parents favor it because they do not want their children drinking at all.
That is physical work out in a sport that they can enjoy, but keeping kids out of parks lowers kids time to ride. For the kids of this community there are no more options for riding, we need to be allowed in the skate parks. In the article Frustration: A Catalyst for Change it stated, “I knew one kid who got a $200 ticket and his license taken away for riding a ledge. It was classified as vandalism” (Banton 2). Riders are getting slammed with these expensive tickets, the kids don’t have the money to be paying the ticket, or to even take it to court and try to fight it because then it will just cause more trouble.
Another example would be busting down a college party and catching teens underage drinking and not arresting them and charging them with disorderly conduct and just simply allowing them to go home. Discretion is something that has to be practiced and exercised. Because police agencies don’t have enough officers to patrol whole areas and have eyes on at all times and ensure that there is no crime and to catch it all is just simply impossible. Learning to be d... ... middle of paper ... ...stically can’t be eliminated because it actually helps to balance out many things like the fact that they can’t be everywhere and are short on staff and can’t arrest every Tom and Jerry that they see breaking the smallest of crimes.

What other options besides videogames would they provide? A school would have to buy as many games as possible to avoid boredom and repetition, which would happen anyway. Buying the game system, mats, televisions, and the actual games would be very costly. Doing video games every day would get very repetitive, and would not offer excitement and motivation on a long term scale, even to those who are regular video game players. There is no way a school could offer a variety of active video games and get rid of the problem of repetition which would make P.E.
The reason of this problem is that there is no designated place to skateboard in Nacogdoches, such as a skate park. Skaters have a tendency to find one particular place they like, and once they find this place they will skate it a lot. And something everyone knows about the excessive use of things is, whether you like it or not at some point in the process of skating something; somewhere, get broke. There has never been any attempt, whatsoever to get a skate park here in Nacogdoches. This is the reason why there are so many skaters out at night skateboarding on the public sidewalks.
As of the twenty first century Skateboarding has risen from the bottom and faced deficits throughout life. Only Skateboarding faced a prohibition, while still able to make it into the ESPN or XGames world and having a large impact in kids lives everywhere. Changing the outlook people have, on Skateboarding and those who partake in the sport, will forever be an ongoing challenge that will slowly make progression. Just like skateboards they slowly progressed throughout time, getting better and better learning from each downfall experienced.
The trucks automated arm grabs the new trash cans and dumps the contents into the back of the truck so no one is needed but a driver. In the text book this quote from the author complements the topic of the changing work force: Change is upon us as never before. Local governments must address these challenges and identify innovative ways to sustain high-quality services; otherwise, they will lose legitimacy in the eyes of the public they serve. If the new trash cans are not a success the population may feel that the Hillsborough County leaders are not spending wisely or did not do their homework before implementing the new program.

While our theatre program could not afford microphones for our school musical and our science classrooms had not received updated textbooks in nearly a decade, the football and volleyball teams were given all new uniforms, even though the old ones were only a year or two old. Our school often spoke of the financial struggles they felt, yet the budgets for sports were never up for debate. Ripley talks about the benefits of high-school sports, and while I cannot deny that it is important to value “exercise, lessons in sportsmanship and perseverance, school spirit, and just plain fun” (3), it’s not worth the sacrifices the schools must make to have sports. That mentality also suggests that playing sports is the only way to gain certain life skills; however, someone might learn about teamwork from being in a play or doing a group project in school. School spirit could be encouraged through pep assemblies.
Peer pressure is a real thing that happens, but I don’t think it happens how it is shown on movies. Our peers put the pressure on us to have the right clothes and shoes to wear, but I have never had someone pressure me into doing something I don’t want to. Bullying is a more of a verbal problem nowadays. I feel like back when my parents went to school it was more of the “Give me your lunch money or I’ll shove you in a locker,” kind of bullying. Now it is more verbal and trying to hurt people on the inside.
