  • Timothy Epistle - 1,455 words
    1 Timothy Epistle "Charge to the Timid Timothy" The author of this letter is Paul, as stated in the salutation (1:1). The evidence in the writing also supports the belief Paul as the author; especially in the way he greets the receiver in his letters, and the close relationship between Paul and Timothy. One of the supporting sources in the church history is found in Theophilus of Antioch, which dates back to 180 A.D. which confirms Paul is the author. The letter was written to Timothy, Paul's "true son in faith" (1:2,18). We first learn about Timothy in (Ac 16:1-3), where we find out that his mother was Jewish and his father was Greek. In 1 Timothy Paul desired that the disciple travel with ...

    A magazine is not a mirror. Have you ever seen anyone in a magazine that looked even vaguely like you looking back? Most magazines are made to sell a fantasy of what we're supposed to be. They reflect what society deems to be a standard, however unattainable that standard is. That doesn't mean you should cancel your subscription. Women need to remember that it's just ink on the paper. Whatever standards you set for yourself: how much you weigh, how hard you work out, or how many times you make it to the gym should be your standards, not someone else's. Magazines portray unrealistic images and women need to learn to accept themselves. Women are now risking their health for the sake of beauty. ...

  • Athletes Deserve High Salaries - 507 words
    Athletes Deserve High Salaries Andy Huckabay PE 401 January 24, 2001 Missy Frost Are athletes getting paid too much? Maybe they are, but I don't really believe that athletes are over paid. People don't understand how the lifestyle of a professional athlete really is or who would get the money we spend if the athlete's didn't get it. They just see those astronomical numbers and think that it is unfair that us working class people don't make that amount of money. Pro athletes are some of the most dedicated, hardest working people in world. They don't just play during their season, they have to train year round or they will lose their job. The psychological stress placed upon athletes is overwh ...

  • Blood, Sweat Shears: A Closer Look At Sweatshops - 1,145 words
    ... fornia contract sweatshops (Department of Labor, 4). There are probably sweatshops in every country in the world - anywhere where there is a pool of desperate, exploitable workers. Logically, the poorer a country is the more exploitable its people are. Labor violations are, therefore, especially widespread in third world countries. Nike has been criticized for unethical labor practices in its Chinese, Vietnamese and Indonesian shoe factories, and Haitian garment factories. Non-profit groups have documented the labor violations of retailers like Philips-Van Heusen and the Gap in factories throughout Latin America. As mentioned above, however, developing countries are not the only ones wit ...
