As a family we enjoy interacting in certain activities. My mother enjoys sitting around the house watching lifetime movies and eating hot dogs. My father loves to go fishing every chance he gets. That’s his meditation. My brother enjoys playing football. Football is his life. He wants to be in the NFL. My sister enjoys spending time with her friends, going out and exploring certain parts of the town. My other brother enjoys shopping for clothes. He takes pride in his clothing, and to him clothes are what make a person. My aunts enjoy drinking. They feel the best way to have a good time is if you are either drunk or almost drunk. My little cousins enjoy running around outside until the soles of their shoes have fallen off. However, none of those activities are what I enjoy doing. The activity I enjoy is playing basketball. One reason I enjoy playing basketball is because it kept me out of trouble. Another reason I enjoy playing basketball because it’s a family game.
Playing basketball is something I have always enjoyed doing very since I was a little girl. I have played basketball for church organizations, school, and, the most common place, the park. Basketball plays a major role in my life. It’s more than just a game to me. It’s a lifestyle. Basketball is my everything. I really don’t know who I would be if I was never introduced to the game of basketball. Basketball kept me on the right path of life. I stayed out of trouble because I stayed in the gym. I always thought when I was a little girl that I would grow up and be just like Lisa Leslie because she is not only a good basketball player but also a good person. She played the game with heart and she gave back to the community. Basketball was my escape from troubled life. I was never a good kid but when I started playing basketball I stayed out of trouble because I didn’t have time to create problems.…...

Activity I Enjoy

...I. Show us an activity you enjoy doing. Tell us how you think it contributes to your personal and professional development I began training and coaching beach volley last year. The idea came into my mind while I was watching the beach volley tournament of my girlfriend job and many participants were complaining about the different level of the teams. Once back home I explained my idea to my girlfriend which is a volley professional and introduced me to the sport and she bought it. The reason why I have selected this activity is because it contributes to strengthen the relationship with my girlfriend, sharing and enjoying together an important portion of my few spare times, since my job is very time consuming being “up in the air all the time”. I therefore killed two birds with one stone, keeping my girlfriend happy without sacrificing my preferred hobby: playing sport. Beach Volley, as any other sport, is good for both physical and mental health. It makes my little heart muscle big and strong and it helps me get rid of toxins from the body. When I am on the beach playing with the “guys” I feel relaxed and, looking at the immensity of the Mediterranean Sea I am able to forget the daily difficulties and recharge my battery. Furthermore, it helps me on my self-awareness development. During this period when the current crisis is oppressing specific sector like the public research, I feel the need to collaborate in activities that contribute to the improvement of some...

Enjoy That Expresso: the Benefits of Caffeine

...Enjoy that Expresso: The Benefits of Caffeine Jesse Russell 12/3/12 It's midnight. Your mid-term exam is tomorrow morning, and you have just started studying. What's more, you are already exhausted from a event-filled day. How are you ever going to manage to resist the overwhelming forces of fatigue and drowsiness? How are you going to stay awake? When faced with this daunting dilemma or a similar situation, most people turn to caffeine for the energy needed to pull through the night. Whether you sipped at a tall latte or chugged a few Mountain Dews, you know you couldn't have done it without caffeine's help. On the other hand, you may heavily rely on the invigorating boost from your morning brew to jump start your day. Regardless, the conclusion remains the same: Caffeine immensely influences our daily lives. In “How Caffeine Works,” Marshall Brain states that “between 80 and 90 percent of adults and children habitually consume caffeine.” in North America. Furthermore, the average intake of caffeine is 280 mg, which is about a cup and a half of coffee (Brain et al). These statistics explicitly demonstrate the deep integration of caffeine into our culture. But why are Americans always attracted to caffeine? What makes it so alluring? Is it helpful or harmful? A simple study of the effects of caffeine on the human body will produce irrevocable evidence about the many benefits of caffeine. More specifically, caffeine beneficially interacts with adenosine,......

A solar cycle can be as short as nine years or as long as fourteen years, with an average of about eleven years (Zell). A solar cycle is observed by counting frequency and placement of sunspots visible on the sun. Solar cycles are periodic changes in the sun’s activity, changes in levels of solar radiation, and changes in levels of ejection of solar matter. The sun is currently in solar cycle twenty-four (Millis). There are phases of solar minimum and solar maximum. During solar minimum, the sun is the least active. Solar maximum is the period of highest activity. The sun is currently in the middle of a very active phase with a high number of sunspot and solar flares.

No Matter What Life Gives, Enjoy It

...10/26/13 No Matter What Life Gives, Enjoy It Publication: The Times Of India Mumbai;Date: Oct 26, 2013;Section: Editorial;Page: 20 THE SPEAKING TREE No Matter What Life Gives, Enjoy It Satsang: Swami Sukhabodhananda Q: Life has become hard for me, I get hurt and upset and feel guilty that I am upset. I read books on self-help, but it is not really helping me.Inoffice,mybossscoldsme,andIfeelbad all day. Is there a way out? A: Getting upset is one thing but holding on to the upset is yet another thing. To handle upset is one thing and energy to get stuck to that upset is yet another thing. Why do you hold on to the upsets and hurts? You are upset, if you allow it; without any internal wording it will fade away in one or two minutes. But worrying about that upset is the disorder in which the mind is caught up. Why do you not let go of the upset? There are so many genuine emotions that are more meaningful and you lose sight of this. If you give attention to reliving of the upset, you will find that it has been a mechanical habit and nothing more than that. The moment you are upset, gently speak to the upset and say, “It is OK. I am upset. I will understand it and not be a victim to it.” In this process, it will pass away, with a lesson. Learn to talk to your hurt and see what happens. Also, after the gentle talks as above, good emotions that you have of the person who has hurt you will arise and you will find them to be in abundance. Give more reality and more life to......

Paranormal Activity

... Psychology guest speaker Paranormal activity with Dane P. Dario Paranormal activity is a interesting topic that people have different opinions on. I was recently presented with some information on paranormal activities from Dane P. Dario a senior at Michigan State University. Dane has done a lot of research and has performed a lot of investigations on paranormal activities in Lansing Michigan. Dane seemed very educated in paranormal activities and is writing a book on his research. He also has created a website titled MSUparanormal@gmail.com. He claims that a couple of halls at MSU are to have some spirits as residents. Dane has investigated this theory and has personally never had any thing show up. A lot of people believe in spirits and a lot of people don’t. Dane was really honest about it and has never had a personal experience with a spirit but knows many people that have. Personal theories and beliefs on this topic vary from person to person. It was interesting to hear all the suspicion the class had at the end of his presentation. A lot of students shared personal information of weird things that has happened in the past. It is a very interesting topic and creates a spooky atmosphere when discussed. I have had some weird things happen with the Ouija board on many occasions. I am undecided in this area and enjoy the atmosphere that is created while using the Ouija board.
