MVP NBA 08-09

The NBA most valuable player candidates are Lebron James, Kobe Bryant, Chris Paul, Dwight Howard, Dwayne wade. I think Lebron James aka “the king” should be MVP.He averages 28.3 points, 9 rebounds, and 7.2 assists per game. Kobe Bryant averages 28 points per game, he also brings his team from the bottom to the top in most game, with the Lakers having the best record in the league. Chris Paul aka “cp3”, averages 21.4 points and 2.8 steals pre game. And Dwight Howard aka “d12”, also with an average of 21 points, and 2.9 blocks per game. And finally Dwayne wade who averages 29.7 points per game. My pick is Lebron James because he is unpredictable and very entertaining . He is a team player, and has a great personality, he loves where he’s at and keeps everyone on their toes. He is a nice guy and a player that a coach would want to work with .he is the future of the NBA.

Teen Pregnancy

Round Table

By Sarah Hamik

It’s normal in our society to have sex at a young age. It’s more likely that teens will have sex when their intoxicated because it causes them to be attracted to the opposite sex. When you’re under the influence teens tend to want sex more than care about their safety. According to womenshealthchannel.com, approximately one-third of young women in the United States become pregnant during their teens. More than 80% of teen pregnancies are unintended and unintentional. I think that teens should be more responsible about having sex and should always be prepared for the outcome if they were not prepared. A lot of my friends are usually only half ready when having sex and end up asking me two weeks later to buy them a pregnancy test. A lot of times pregnant girls can look to the media for suggestions about alternatives for their pregnancy. They could put it up for adoption like in the movie, Juno, or they could keep the baby like they did on the TV show called “Secret life of an American Teenager”, or they could have an abortion like Kyra from the movie “Coach Carter”. Even though teens have all these choices, it still shouldn’t lead them to get pregnant unintentionally.

WHAT IS FAMILY?

By Esteban Olague

Commentary

What is the real definition of family? Is family a word that can be defined from the dictionary? Is that the real definition just because it’s in a dictionary? My definition of family is a group of people that you trust with your life, a group of people that have your back till the end and not the ones that just say, “Yea blood, I got yo back.” Most people that just say it don’t really mean it. Through out my life I’ve learned that people aren’t justified by their words or promises, and not by their ability to speak or what people think of them. People are only justified by their actions and defined by what they do in the worst situations. I have family that I don’t consider to be my bloodline; I refer to those people by their first names instead of calling them my uncle, auntie, or grandparent. My real family has always been there for me. I’m the only son with only one little sister, but I got 6 brothers and 2 other sisters, 2 dads, 2 moms, and only a few aunties and uncles. My 2nd pair of parents are my dad’s brother and his wife. My brothers and sisters mostly consist of people who started out as just my friends, but I believe that family doesn’t end by blood.

What Men Really Want

News

By Sarah Hamik

On February 16, 2009, National Geographic stated that Susan Fiske proved that men see women more as objects rather than humans. Fiske, a psychologist at Princeton University, did an experiment with 21 heterosexual men in Chicago. She took pictures of headless women, half were clothed the others were in bikinis. Most of the men remembered the women in the bikinis even only seeing them for a tenth of a second, Proving that men see women as sex objects rather than humans. Fiske also states that if the experiment were done with women they would not dehumanize men as men do to women. Women tend to look for men with wealth or power. if a similar test were done with women and they had to choose between a guy standing next to a nice car or a man that is wearing torn up clothes, they would most likely pick the guy with the nice car. These days’ women tend to be more comfortable with their bodies, which is a good thing, but it can be too revealing sometimes. Women wear the bikinis for the attention and because they want to look good, leading men to see the outside rather than the inside.
