"TEEN DRINKERS DON'T GROW OLD"
They Die Young
It is said that teen drinkers or smokers don’t grow old, which others think as a good thing. But the fact is they don’t grow old because they die young. No offense but it’s the truth. But this doesn't indicate that drinking alcohol & smoking is forbidden to happen. Almost 60 percent of teenagers these days are drinkers or smokers, especially for the gentlemen. It’s a bit of shocking but true and a half of this 60 percent is even the educated ones. The risk that teens will smoke, drink, and use illegal drugs increases sharply if they are highly stressed and frequently bored. Others that have complete innocence, thought that doing these things are more likely called to be “COOL”. These things are definitely not cool it’s a perfect temptation for our curiosity to try new things which leads us to a complete waste of life. And so a good thing to do about this is to focus our attention within our studies rather than to drugs, alcohol & smokes. We teenagers are supposed to live our lives fully with use or better yet with sense. There is always a time for everything but this time shouldn't be wasted just for those silly things. Be focused and think of the outcome of your actions first before you do it. Today’s the day to change and it's up to you if you’re going to be the one to start the first step of change or you’re just going to feel nothing about it ‘cause life is what we make it. So think twice and be wise. Remember : It's better to be late than never.
High School: Life or Drama
High school is partly life and drama but to sum it all up it’s a life of drama actually because at this stage of life you’ll finally able to overcome your innocence and step out the door to see and discover new life. Here we should expect lots of possibilities about ourselves ‘cause we will be encountering new people, new challenges and specially unexplainable emotions. High school is the most unforgettable part of our lives...
The featurearticle ‘Tattoo You’ by Daniel Hatch focuses on the devolution of tattoos. In the past, people inked their bodies because it had a meaning to them. However, people today get tattoos because tattooing has become a fashion. Just like any piece of clothing that come in and out of trend, once tattoos are out of fashion, people will simply get them removed. Fashion is an important issue today that mainly influences young people into following someone else’s taste. Hatch uses persuasive language to persuade his target audience to agreeing with his point of view. Hatch presents his featurearticle through the use of expert witnesses and evidence, so that readers agree with his argument about our ‘throwaway society’. A text I have previously studied, ‘Real life imitates art as beauty turns to beast’, by Anthony Abeson, presents similar social issues of the importance of looks over talents, and the fact that we have become a disposable society.
The consumption of tattoos has become a mass consumer phenomenon. As tattoos have gained in popularity, it can be expected that the reasons for why people get tattoos have shifted as well. Fashion is the main reason. Tattoos used to mean something to man. Today, people are not necessarily getting a tattoo in order to express affiliation with a certain life style or a specific subculture. Tattoos have a long history, they had a meaning and were made to...
...JOUR SUPPLEMENTARY ESSAY
The term “featurearticle” is quite general and can include many different forms, such as profile features, news features, expose’s, and many others. Feature journalism can also have numerous purposes, for example to inform, to educate, or to simply entertain. While ‘featurearticle’ is certainly a broad term,features do come with their own set of defining characteristics which make them different to a news article.
Featurearticles are distinguished from regular news reports because they give the reader more than a ‘facts-only’ account of an issue; they explore themes and concepts more deeply than a ‘hard’ news article. While featurearticles usually have elements of news worthiness (for example, a profile of a politician in the lead up to an election), they are often timeless to some degree, because the underlying themes of features are usually universal.
Although not always the case, featurearticles are usually longer than news articles. Structurally, this gives the author more freedom. Unlike news articles, features do not adhere to the ‘inverted pyramid’ structure – an effective feature will often show the...

Journal Article Review 2
Self Forgiveness: The Step Child of Forgiveness
The general topic of forgiveness has received a magnitude of attention and research on a conceptual level in recent years. Hall and Fincham consistently noted, however, that self-forgiveness had little to no empirical study or research documented and believe this is a critical piece to an individual’s overall emotional health. In an effort to stimulate additional research on the subject, they wrote the aforesaid journal article. The article describes self-forgiveness by definition in both a spiritual and a psychological context. Much insight is given to the similarities and differences between self-forgiveness, or intrapersonal forgiveness, and interpersonal forgiveness. Many conceptual distinctions are addressed and appropriately confirm the need for further research on self-forgiveness as it relates to the inflated interest in the importance and nature of forgiveness in general. In addition, much discussion covers the relation of self-forgiveness to interpersonal forgiveness in regards to the importance, or even necessity, of one to the other.

The article I choose was by Amy E. Singer, Ph.D. “A Novel Approach: The Sociology of Literature, Children, Book and Social Inequality. While reading this article I saw that this was a primary review of an existing research. The author mentions findings from another researcher Wendy Griswold a lot through thisarticle. So this here shows that she will bases her hypothesis from existing sources. Singer “would build on Wendy Griswold’s methodical approach by combining humanistic and social methods in order to study American children’s novels and their production contexts. (Pg2)
The thing I learned from this article is that children’s books are very influential in a child mind and t young age. Children are like sponges the information that is given. Singer (2011) state in her article” That old fashion notions that an author simply imparts, by writing words on paper, ideas and information to a porous reader has been replaced with an argument about implied reader who does not absorb a text so much as work to understand (Pg5) From this as we discussed in one of our discussion about mass media and how it have a influence on children perception on women being sexual icons. I look at this like as parents are involved where they can explain what is right or wrong....
