numerous debates over sharing the revenue with student-athletes because of the legal policies it demands (Goplerud, 1997). Studies have been done on potential alternatives such as monthly stipends and trust funds as a form of payment for the athlete's hard work. Due to the commercialization of college athletics, many studies have proposed a need for legislation from the NCAA regarding paying college athletes.
The National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) was founded in 1906 by President Theodore Roosevelt to devise formal game rules, promote safety, and give college athletics some degree of public respectability (Potuto, 2014). College sports flourished after WWII and the level of

Persuasive StoriesPaying College AthletesIf the colleges are going to pay their athletes, the pay shouldn't go over $50,000.I think some athletes might end up getting used to the real world if they had to manage large sums of money, to pay for their cars, college, and even a house. For some it might be bad, like if the money went straight to their head. It might end up getting them in trouble. And some, might get agents to get the best contract, so then the agent would stay with him or her right into the pros, I think that would be the best of all, because most athletes hold out while their agents pick out the best contract for them. The season would start with all the rookies instead of

Should College Athletes Be Paid?
Many people will tell you that the opportunity to go to college is enough for student-athletes, but it is time to start offering more than that and paying the athletes that take their talents to the collegiate level. These athletes bring in large amounts of money for their school and the NCAA and are not being fairly compensated for it. There are many different commodities and experiences that are given up to pursue college sports and the people that choose to do so should at least see some of the benefits of making that choice. The time has come for the traditional rules of amateur athletes not being

, in the article “College Sports: 7 Schools That Bring in the Most Money” written by Jason Alsher, it was proven that the Texas A&M Aggies Athletic Program had the highest revenue of any other University at $192,608,876. Yet with this large sum of money being brought in, no college athletes were legally rectified for their work, which seems they had a lot to do with. According to NCAA rules, “You are not eligible for participation in a sport if you have ever: Taken pay, or the promise of pay, for competing in that sport” (NCAA Regulations 1). Due to this law, not only are college athletes straining in paying off their college tuition, but these “amateur” athletes have no motivation to stay in

off of the athletes. Hartnett writes that, athletes earn their school hundreds of thousands of dollars, increase enrollment, and if they do well, provide a recruiting piece for generations (Hartnett). Hartnett claims that there is some hypocrisy in the fact that universities are profiting off of their athletic programs but the student athletes are prohibited from accepting endorsements and selling autographs and therefore the athletes should be paid throughout their college career.
Joe Nocera, a prominent sports journalist at the New York Times, agrees with Hartnett on the fact that college athletes should be paid. Noceras article Lets Start Paying College Athletes, provides a descriptive

Should Student Athletes be Paid?
College athletes are indisputably some of the hardest working people out there. Student-athletes not only live the livelife of an average student but they also have a tough schedule with their sport. The biggest debate in college athletics is should student athletes be paid money for playing sports at the collegiate level. There are great arguments on both sides, most saying that if the student is playing a sport they most likely are going to school for free on a scholarship. Another

NCAA Athletes Should be Paid
Could you imagine working 43.3 hours a week and not earning a salary? That is what it is like to be an average Division One Football player in the NCAA. That is not just football players, however. The average NCAA athlete works towards their sport about the same amount of time as the average American work week, except without salary. This topic has been controversial for quite a while now. NCAA athletes should be paid because they cannot get a job in their free time, work like a full time employee, and make the NCAA and their college loads of money.
NCAA players deserve to be paid because they could be

college athlete to sign a contract saying if you perform "X" amount then we will pay you "Y" amount. I believe that Judy Runge explains the most common point of view of someone that really stands against college athletes being paid. I hate to say it, but her thoughts and her comment seem to be weak. My side of the argument of paying college athletes is far more superior and well supported with evidence. Mike Belloti, the head football coach at the University of Oregon says, "You already subsidize athletics…it's not going to make it anymore of a professional sport by giving them $100 per month to enable them to have a lifestyle that's not even the average of

College football is one of the most popular sports in the country, if not the most popular. As a result of this, football programs are usually the money-making sport at almost all of the schools that field a football team. College football is also the main cog in the multi-billion-dollar machine that is the NCAA which has come under controversy for not paying players even though the NCAA is using the players to get paid themselves. This issue has been brought up recently due to the Ed O'Bannon trial, which states that the NCAA and colleges must pay players $5,000 in stipends for using their likeness or name on apparel or in video games (McCann). Then, the Northwestern football team tried to

Why college tuition should be reduced
College tuition is something that most college student mind. Over the years, the cost of college is becoming increasingly outrageous leaving most of the students in debt for years on end. With that being said most people can’t even afford college, which is something that shouldn’t be common. For those who can’t afford it, should be able to.

· Bad Publicity- Bad public relations can really kill a good sport program or even an entire college. Hearing about potential budget cuts can ruin a program, take away jobs, and leave college athletes sport-less. With that, even the slightest negative review can potentially throw LSU under fire. If this happens LSU will start to see a decline in fan support for the University and the Athletic Department, which means a loss of revenue. LSU will end up having a bad rap as a program and a school, but once this happens and the program moves forward then we won’t hear about this again for a very long time. Most Universities will already have plans set incase this

Ernest Hemingway’s Hills like White Elephants
The short story Hills like White Elephants by Ernest Hemingway is a story about a man and woman who are sitting at a bar at a small train station somewhere in Spain. They seem to be having a heated conversation about a mysterious “operation”. The author never explicitly says what the issue is between the man and woman, but it can be assumed it is about a huge and personal decision they have to make because of the literary devices the author uses. Throughout the story the author hints at what the mysterious operation really is. Hemingway uses symbolism, setting, and imagery to convey

Walter Freeman and the Invention of the Lobotomy
In Steely Library’s digital archives, one of the postcards from the Gilliam family collection is entitled Western Kentucky Asylum for the Insane, Hopkinsville, KY. The postcard dates back to 1915 and portrays a beautiful building, complete with red bricks and white columns. Many of the insane asylums around this time were built similarly, but even their picturesque exterior could not hide the horrors which occurred within. Insane asylums built in the early to mid 1900s were still getting on their feet, and many of them encountered problems with patient care early on

When I was a child, my late father and I would spend every moment of the summer season on
the sparkling white sand of the beach near our home. We would dance, kicking up the shiny
surface so that the droplets glimmered like diamonds in the sunlight. We would lie on our backs
and stare at the sky, until the swirling clouds began to take on our imaginative shapes mingled
together by our fantastical minds. We would grip imaginary weapons and fight, thrusting swords
like the most violent of fantasy pirates. These unforgettable days went on and on, a never ending
cycle of blue skies, imprinted forever in my mind. My earliest memories are filled with images

How much of a threat does the robotics revolution represent for human employment in New Zealand in the next 30 years?
In order to understand the threats that robotics may pose to human employment in the future, it is important to examine the ways in which robots and computerization are already influencing different employment industries today, and how they have changed our labor practices in the past. If this information is then compared with current trends and statistics in New Zealand’s employment market conclusions can be drawn about how robotics might influence New Zealand employment in the next thirty years.
Evolution in employment methods has been seen in the

In the article “Indigenous remain ‘asset rich, dirt poor’ 25 years after Mabo”, Indigenous affairs editor, Fitzpatrick (2017) presents the socioeconomic situation of the Aboriginal people, using the views of the former prime minister’s advisor, Josephine Cashman. Miss Cashman pointed out that the promises made to the indigenous people, presented in the Mabo case, had not been fulfilled accordingly after the year 1992. Many indigenous people still have inadequate housing, poor health, restricted education and lower average incomes. About 25 years from the Wik decision, many Aboriginals were classified under the

Comparison Between the Portrayal of Tom Buchanan and Jay Gatsby in Chapters 1 to 6
Fitzgerald purposefully portrays Jay Gatsby and Tom Buchanan in contrasting ways to emphasise the variety of money within the American market, during the era in which the novel is set. A major difference between the two men is ‘new money’ and ‘old money’, where Gatsby represents ‘new money’, but Daisy and Tom represent ‘old money’. The contrast between the two comes down to where the money originated from; "Old money" families have fortunes dating from the 19th century or before, have built up powerful and influential social connections and tend to hide their wealth and
