An important question regarding people today, from the ages of 9 to 90 is why is physical education important? Physical education is important for a number of reasons, one of the biggest reasons being that if someone is physical fit and participates in physical activity daily, the chances are, their going to live a longer, healthier life than one who is not physical fit and does not participate in physical activity on a daily basis. Another big reason is physical education and athletics help define a person and shape them and people can learn a lot about themselves by participating in activities, such as how well they handle situations, anger problems, and maturity. These reasons, among several other reasons which will be covered is why physical education is important and should be essential to everyone’s life.
First of all, physical education is an educational process that uses physical activity as a means to help people acquire skills, fitness, knowledge and attitudes that contribute to their optimal development and well-being. Physical education should be introduced to children from the time their communication skills with the parents develops, although most children don’t experience what physical education is until they enter school, with which physical education is being taught in school. It’s important for parents to communicate to their children before they enter school on why physical activity is important because America is on the incline with obesity rates and children should know that being well fit, promotes a healthy lifestyle, and that participating in sports helps socially incline the child, among helping with motor skills, coordination, flexibility, etc.
If physical education is taught correctly, it can develop physical and mental skills as well as develop a sense of self. By participating in physical activity, a student’s skill will…...

The Right vs. the Wrong

...The Right vs. The Wrong Matt Kimball DeVry University THE RIGHT VS. THE WRONG The battle of determining what is right and what is wrong is one that we all face. The depth of that battle is one that varies across a wide array of topics, ranging from a moral dilemma that has consequences to a simple decision like what to wear that day. The Omnivore’s Dilemma by Michael Pollan explores this battle as it relates to determining what is right and what is wrong for our dietary needs. Society has drastically changed over the years in the U.S. especially when it comes to our eating habits and the frequency in which we eat out at restaurants and fast food chains more regularly than ever before. The increased volume by which we eat out is not what has caused what many are calling an epidemic as it relates to our country’s obesity but rather it’s the decisions we make about what we eat when we eat out. The ability to eat out and still eat healthy is quite alive but it’s up to you. The act of eating out whether it be for a special occasion or simply because we can has become far more frequent than it ever was even ten or twenty years ago. In fact, at some point not too long ago, the notion that you were not sitting down at the dining room table and having dinner with the family was considered absurd. The evolution of our society and the need to always be on the go has drastically changed our way of thinking about what a “family dinner” means. In the 1950s a “family......

Abortion Right or Wrong

...Jason isam Abortion: Right or Wrong As I see it, there are two sides to the argument of abortion, and I stand pro-choice. Abortion must be the legal right for all women. This doesn't mean in any way I condone an abortion free-for-all. For example, all those women who are trying to get rid of “mistakes” every couple of months because they choose to do nothing to prevent the pregnancy in the first place. Women must have the right to terminate pregnancies under certain circumstances. For example, if a woman has a medical condition, and carrying a child to full term will kill her, it is better to terminate that child as early as possible, to save the mother so she may live her life. And it’s likely if her condition is serious enough to threaten her life, the baby will not survive anyway. Under a circumstance like this, no one can argue two lives lost are better than one, just because the person may believe abortion to be wrong. A teenage girl, only fourteen-years-old, is walking home from school one day. She gets attacked, dragged into some bushes or a car and raped. A few weeks later she learns she is pregnant. At this point, the girl is faced with three choices. She can choose to keep the baby, becoming a mother before most people decide what they want to do after high school. Not only that, she becomes the mother of a child who came from a horrific and terrifying situation. Choice two is to carry the child to full term, and then put it up for adoption. On......

Gay Marriages: Right or Wrong

...Gay Marriages: Right or Wrong? SOC 120: Introduction to Ethics & Social Responsibility Instructor: Danielle Ely May 19, 2013 Gay Marriages: Right or Wrong? Gay marriage has been a touchy topic in society for many years now. It is an ethical issue because it goes against most people norms and this alone causes many problems. Deciding whether it is right or wrong is the issue at hand. Many people believe that two people of the same sex should not be allowed to get married, while others think that it is ok. In this case, who can we say is right and who is wrong. Is that really our decision to make? Mosser, (2010). states, “A natural way to see if an act is the right thing to do or the wrong thing to do is to look at its results, or consequences.” I agree that before making decision in life we must first determine how critical it is and how it might affect the people around us. Also, are we ready to suffer the consequences we may face such as family members and people in the community not supporting us? Utilitarianism believes that, if you are given a set of choices, the act that we should choose is the act which produces the best results for the largest number of people affected by that decision. Relativism disables us from making our objections to practices that appears not just wrong relative to a society's values, but plain out simply wrong. Also, it can be very hard to figure out what one's culture is in the relevant ethical sense to make relativism work, and......

Euthanasia: Is It Right or Wrong?

...Emily Yapp Ms. Jones English 3A 11/22/2013 Euthanasia: Is it Right or Wrong? There are many topics that are passionately debated in our country. Abortion, capital punishment, and gay marriage are among the few that seem to be at the center of many news broadcast and political debates. However, one that seems is not on the front position would be Euthanasia, or Physician-assisted suicide (PAS). Currently, only four states have legalized PAS: Montana, Oregon, Vermont, and Washington. These states have strict guidelines one must follow in order to end their life with the help of a physician. They include eligibility requirements, physician protocols, and timelines that must be followed. Support for such a practice varies from person to person. Political and religious factors certainly play a role in the way people view euthanasia. Euthanasia should be the patient's choice. The word Euthanasia stems from a Greek word that can be translated "a good death." Euthanasia can be classified into two different categories, active and passive (The Free Dictionary)( Types of Euthanasia). Passive euthanasia is when a patient does not receive life sustaining treatments, such as medications, tube feedings or mechanical ventilation, that result in the patient's death. Passive euthanasia is legal in all states in the form of Do Not Resuscitate (DNR) orders. Patients are also legally allowed to refuse any types of treatment or therapy they would like, even if it results in their death.......

Whistleblowing: Right or Wrong?

...Whistleblowing: Right or Wrong? Tayler Parker SOC 120 Instructor Jeremy Bennett 2/16/14 Whistleblowing. Is it right, or is it wrong? Is it ethical or unethical? Many people weigh heavily on one side or the other. I think that it would be a very difficult situation to be in. Should you choose to betray your company or government to do the questionably right thing, or should you aid and abet the scandals by helping keep the secrets? Everyone has different opinions of the subject, especially as far as ethicists are concerned. Another word for ethics is the Greek word, “ethos”. In the United States Army, we are to live by the Warrior Ethos. The Warrior Ethos is made up of: Loyalty, Duty, Respect, Selfless Service, Honor, Integrity, and Personal Courage. Each etho, or ethic, relies on the others. Integrity being the main one, and the base for all the others in my opinion. If you do not have integrity, then you cannot personally have any of the others. Although whistleblowers seem to be doing the right thing according to deontologists, utilitarian soften feel the opposite. With an example of Adrian Schoolcraft (NYPD 81st Precinct Whistleblower police officer), the officers exploited obviously did not have loyalty to themselves, their job, or the citizens he was supposed to protect. Not only did they violate their duty, but they also disrespected many people, namely victims of rape whose assailants were only charged with trespassing. If the officers had selfless service,......

The Concept of Right and Wrong in "Antigone"

...The question of who is right and who is wrong in Antigone between the two main characters, Creon and Antigone, is an issue that is directly dependant on the gods. In this case, it is Antigone who is right and Creon who is wrong in their decisions. Antigone's reasons were just and accepting of the gods' control when she accepted her fate, while Creon indirectly assumes control for himself by disregarding and disrespecting the gods which results in his unprepared outcome. It is important to understand the reasoning behind the characters' decision-making and how these decisions relate to the gods in order to understand the purpose of the story's outcome and it's sound chain of events. It is known that following the gods with respect is a sign of good fate and righteousness. Antigone is respectful of the gods throughout the story and even complies with her fate as she makes her final decision of whether to go through with her burial plans for Polynices. However, Creon is disrespectful many times towards the gods, in particular when he insults Zeus, when talking about Polynices' dead corpse, by saying " But you will never cover up that corpse, not if the very eagles tear their food from him, and leave it at the throne of Zeus." (Antigone, lines 1039-1041). Creon is wrong in disgracing Zeus' throne and presuming his own commands stand stronger than Zeus'. It is clear in the text that Creon has forgotten that the power that has been bestowed on him as a king would never amount......

Human Rights or Human Wrongs

...CASE: 1 Human rights or human wrongs? (Marks 5) A factory owner in the Southeast Asian country of Malaysia, Mr. Carter, was severely criticized by an international human rights organization, Human Rights Watch out (HRW). After undertaking a summer research project involving scores of college interns from Europe and the US, HRW wrote a report claiming that Mr. Carter was exploiting his workers, relying on young children of a minority ethnic group to work long hours at substandard wages. The report is published in the national newspaper, the Malaysia News Press. The very next day Mr. Carter submits his own views—of the Human Rights Watch out organization. It is also published in the News-Press. Mr. Carter’s article points out that the HRW organization itself is hardly equitable: the organization consists almost solely of one ethnic group, white Europeans and Americans; the young, previously unemployed workers often toil 60-hour work weeks to file their reports; HRW provides no job security or benefits, and offers salaries—especially to interns—at pathetically low wages relative to their peers. Some are paid hardly at all. ROLE PLAY: The Malaysia Times-Press invites HRW to respond. You are part of the HRW public relations team.

Human Rights or Human Wrong

...is a foodservice manager at a casual dining restaurant. Bob is responsible for supervising and managing all employees in the back of the house. Employees working in the back of the house range in age from 16 years old to 55 years old. In addition, the employees come from diverse cultural and ethnic backgrounds. For many, English is not their primary language. Bob is Serve Safe certified and tries his best to keep up with food safety issues in the kitchen but he admits it’s not easy. Employees receive “on the job training” about food safety basics (for example, appropriate hygiene and handwashing, time/temperature, and cleaning and sanitizing). But with high turnover of employees, training is often rushed and some new employees are put right into the job without training if it is a busy day. Eventually, most employees get some kind of food safety training. The owners of the restaurant are supportive of Bob in his food safety efforts because they know if a food safety outbreak were ever linked to their restaurant; it would likely put them out of business. Still, the owners note there are additional costs for training and making sure food is handled safely. One day Bob comes to work and is rather upset even before he steps into the restaurant. Things haven’t been going well at home and he was lucky to rummage through some of the dirty laundry and find a relatively clean outfit to wear for work. He admits he needs a haircut and a good hand scrubbing, especially after working......

Is Abortion Wrong or Right?

...Madison Moreno  Professor Rollins  ENG 112-01  September 2, 2015  Is Abortion Wrong or Right?  Abortion is defined as “The removal of an embryo or fetus from the uterus in order to end the pregnancy” (dictionary.com). However, if only the debate over the abortion issue was as easy as the definition listed above. However, similar to most things in life, a statement or opinion is never right nor wrong, but simply left open for clarification. Those who are against abortion believe that abortion is the murder of innocent human beings who aren’t given a chance at life and the ability to function as a normal individual. However, those who are for abortion believe that it is a women’s right to choose what she does to not only her baby but also to her body and if she decides she is not capable of bringing a child into this world, then she should not be forced to.  Everybody has their own opinion so therefore, abortion should not be right nor should it be wrong.  As expected, there are millions of people who are against abortion. These people are considered pro-life, otherwise known as people who feel that, for no reason at all, should any woman feel the need to abort her child while being pregnant. There are many reasons as to why those who are pro-life do not support abortion. The main reason is that, in her decision to have an abortion, the mother is deciding to kill or murder an innocent human being who hasn’t been given a chance at life. Some may also feel that abortion......

Abortions: Right or Wrong?

...Abortions…. Right or Wrong? Abortions are undoubtedly one of the most controversial topics in our society today. One of the main reasons is because it is often debated as to when a fetus actually becomes a human being. Some people argue that having an abortion is no different than using any other type of contraception. Other people believe that a human being is formed at conception therefore having an abortion is in fact killing another human being. As we all know it is a severe crime to kill another person as it is punishable by death in some states. So to make this legal you have to say that a fetus before a certain week is not considered a living person. The federal government has its views on abortions as well as does many churches but ultimately the people make up both of those parties so it really comes down to whether they are pro-choice or pro-life. The first thing that must be decided is when does human life begin? According to the Association of Pro-Life Physicians, “life begins at fertilization, when a sperm unites with an oocyte”. In order for something to be considered a living creature it must meet certain elements and a fetus at even one day meets all of those elements. That means if you take a pro-choice approach to abortion then you are choosing to go against the science that has helped us evolve from where we were hundreds of years ago if you choose to say that having an abortion within the first twelve weeks is not killing a human......

Abortion, Right or Wrong?

...Abortion, Right or Wrong? To most people life is a gift. Some people live each day as if it were their last. Others take life for granted and assume that what they put off today they can do tomorrow. What about the life of the unborn child, the human being that is growing and developing inside its mother’s womb. Is it the right of the mother to say this child shall be born, or is it the right of the government? Does the developing fetus have a voice on this issue? These questions have been asked as far back as ancient times. Today, the question whether abortion is right or wrong still has many people on different sides of the issue. Abortions have been performed throughout history for many different reasons. Laws and their enforcement on the issue have fluctuations through many eras. Many of the methods used in early and primitive cultures were non-surgical. Common techniques were making the woman perform strenuous physical activities such as climbing, paddling, weightlifting, or diving. Women could also use irritant leaves, fasting, bloodletting, and pouring hot water onto the abdomen. Each culture had its own ways of dealing with unwanted pregnancies. For centuries, South Asia has practiced the technique of massage abortion, the application of pressure to the pregnant abdomen. During the nineteenth century in the United States, the use of candles and other objects, such as glass rods, penholders, curling irons, spoons, sticks, knives, and......

The Wrong Decision for the Right Reason

...The Wrong Decision for the Right Reason I sat there thinking it was a joke. No way could my parents do this to me. How could they abandon me like this? This was definitely not happening. My parents were kicking me out. Yes I probably made the wrong decision by being disrespectful but it was to stick up for my mom which was for the right reason. Before I go any further in this story let me explain my brother’s condition. My little brother, Colt, was diagnosed with mental retardation. He was really far behind in school and his social skills were horrible. My mom knew something was wrong and fought to figure out what was wrong since the day he was born and to see what she could do to make it better. My dad was and still is in denial. My mom decided to quit her job to try to help my brother catch up and live the most “normal” life possible. I’m very protective over my brother. Anyone is protective over their siblings but when you find out they have something wrong, like mental retardation, you’re even more protective. I would tolerate anyone bulling my brother or ridiculing my mother’s decisions about my brother. We were eating lunch at Applebee’s. It was my mom, my dad, my dad’s two friends (Brian and Danny), and me. We were all talking and having a good time. Although I didn’t really care for Brian and Danny I could tolerate them. Also keep in mind my dad, Brian, and Danny are all police officers, which means they seem to think being rude is hilarious. Danny and Brian......

Cloning: Right or Wrong?

...Running Head: CLONING RIGHT OR WRONG? Cloning Right or Wrong? Should the cloning of humans be legalized? Diane Lentz English 215 Strayer University Online Cloning Right or Wrong? Should the Cloning of Humans be Legalized? Scientists have been cloning animals from embryonic cells for decades (Cowen, 2001). With the introduction of Dolly, the first animal cloned from mature tissue, the issue of cloning has reached a fevered pitch. Individuals for cloning and those against are taking their battle to new arenas, such as congress. The battle will continue as research progresses. The process of cloning and the information compiled from cloned animal experiments are as important as the benefits and complications as well as the ethical and legal ramifications of it, which are at the core of the modern day debate. In 1997, a sheep named Dolly gained national recognition. Dr. Ian Wilmut, a Scottish scientist from the Roslin Institute, introduced her to the world as a genetic copy of her mother. Animals, as humans, receive half of their DNA from their mother and half from their father. This creates a unique individual. It took scientists 277 tries to succeed in creating Dolly. While Dolly has the same DNA as her mother, they are different in many ways. Human twins share the same DNA but have different personalities due to life experiences. The process Dr. Wilmut used to create Dolly is called “nuclear......
