Do NOT Pay College Athletes Essay

… Teams are supposed to be united in their quest for victories, not divided by their own self-interests. If college athletics cannot teach players to come together as a team because money is involved, money should probably not be involved at all.

Another con is that paying athletes puts a burden on smaller schools because they will never be able to pay the best athletes to come play on their courts or on their fields. The big schools will attract the top talent just like the big cities attract the top talent in the pro game. It would mean less opportunity for small schools to compete at the national level, and less revenue for them overall as they quickly find themselves unable to make the…. [read more]

Estimates suggest that executives' pay is often increased by an average of nearly $500,000 each with every occurrence of backdating.

This is to say, obesity occurs when individual lifestyles lead towards excessive food consumption and little to no energy-utilization activities. Zakus (1982) in his study pointed out that certain ailments, namely, Frohlich's, Klinefelter's, Praeder Willi, Klein-Levin, Lawrence Mood Biedl, and Mauriac syndromes, are the underlying causes of childhood obesity. However, these cases, he points out, occur in less than 5% of children (Zakus, 1982).…. [read more]

Further, by the end of the decade, the percentage of individuals identifying themselves as "religious persons" ranged from a low of 48% in Denmark to 72% in the Irish Republic. The Spanish percentage of 68% exceeded all other countries except Ireland, Portugal and Greece. In stark contrast to the…. [read more]
