So far in this research process I’ve stayed on track and have yet to fall behind and hopefully won’t in the near future. I have my topic picked and cemented in, it is actually a fairly challenging topic where its not too easy for me and I’m hardly doing anything, yet its not too hard to the point of where I’m stressing out because I cannot find anything on the subject. I do feel my subquestions are very helpful in finding research that is more specific and relative to the topic of my project. My research is begining to increase in volume and I have already learned a few things. I plan to stay on track and continue finding good, realiable research to improve my project. I have 3 reliable sources within my annotated bibliography that all lead to mounds of information on the topic of baseball and the business of baseball.


I agree completely with this article. Parents in this day and age excessively “over parent” their children. It expands from help with school work to the avoidance disciplinary action. A stunning example from the text is the conversation the author had with a “concerned” parent about the child plagiarizing a paper in class and it turns out it was the parent who actually wrote the paper for their child. When I hear of parents doing this I think to myself how are you helping your child learn if you are doing their work for them? How do you expect them to become independent? Or accept failure? Well they can’t. If a child grows up over protected they cannot make their own decisions and if they don’t fail at some point they cant figure out for themselves how to problem solve and fix the problem ahead of them. Though I don’t believe children should be “over parented” I don’t believe they should be under parented either, a strong mix of both is what is needed, letting your child fail sometimes so they can learn how to fix it themselves, allowing them to become more independent and free thinking.

Money is everything to a majority of people in the world, people’s actions, emotions, and decisions are based on money. Whether it’s the joy of buying a new jacket or selling something and receiving money in return; it decides how and where you live, what car you drive, what clothes you wear, etc. Money affects nearly every social aspect of life and people work every day for their entire lives to make a nice life for their self and family. Money is never simply given out, but if it was given to me in the lump sum of 10 million dollars. I would go absolutely insane. Firstly I would get my mother the car and house of her dreams, not to mention a nanny and maid service so my mom no longer has to be stressed with house work and taking care of my brothers 3 semi-obnoxious. Then I would do the same for myself. Preferably a multiple-bedroom house in warm weather close enough to the ocean that it is my backyard. And my car, a vibrant red Lamborghini Mercialago. Though I would have more, less flamboyant cars to go out casually. I wouldn’t just blow all of my money away on expensive things. I would invest a couple hundred thousand dollars in big business so I could make more money. But most of all I would use the money to travel to many different countries around the world, Israel, Spain, Amsterdam and more in Europe. Then of course I would have to make my way to China, India, and Egypt to see the marvelous wonders of the world and the cultures in which I am not farmiliar.

ADD and ADHD are the most commonly misdiagnosed disorder among school children in the United States. The problem is ADD and ADHD aren’t medical conditions; there are no x-rays, brain scans, blood test, etc. for this disorder. Diagnosis is relied solely on a doctors OPINION. This leads to many cases of a misdiagnosis. In fact 20% of American school aged children are now on behavioral medication, according to child neurologist, Fred Baughman Jr., MD. Leading one to believe there are quite a few cases of misdiagnosis due to the sheer number of children prescribed and the not-so concrete way of reaching a diagnosis. Along with misdiagnosis, the availability of these drugs is comparable to none. According to Craig Stellpflug, a neurodevelopment consultant, that “with just 5 minutes in the right doctor’s office, you can walk out with a deadly schedule 1 or 2 pharmaceutical prescription and a permanent medical record of ADD/ADHD diagnosis.” This availibilty and over diagnosis is dangerous as many of these drugs contain such substances as amphetamine, which is highly addictive, and is a key component in the narcotic Meth-Amphetamine. So ask you’re self what are you or your children really taking and are there truly benefits.

Towards the beginning of this year’s NFL season two players of the New York Giants, Tyler Sash and Will Hill, were both suspended for violating the NFL’s performance enhancing drug policy. For a medication that is subscribed to children and teens with ADHD, frequently and with little hesitance. Both players were suspended 4 games without pay, though both players were legally prescribed Adderall by their respective doctors. But the NFL believes it improves performance and there for schedules it as a PED or performance enhancing drug.
