Dear Sir or Madam:
SUBJECT: EATING DISORDERS IN THE MEDIA
My name is Katie Morton and I am writing because I would like to see a part of one of the CBS Evening News shows to be about eating disorders in the media. As a teenage girl I am deeply disturbed by the growing number of people that are affected by eating disorders on a daily basis. Due to the media many girls result to not eating or eating very little in order to look like the stars they see on television.
Many girls in today’s society look at the skinny, beautiful models and actresses as role models. It appears that these women have everything, money, fame, and good looks. They think that these women are in control but what most girls do not realize is that these women are really spinning out of control because many of them have an eating disorder. “In America young girls have been so obsessed with dieting that they will take extreme measures by the time they are ten years old” (Erlanger).
Almost every girl at some point in her life has looked in the mirror and thought that all they saw was fat. By being skinny it shows that you have control over your life. Even I have been one of those girls who look at themselves in the mirror and think they are fat.
Unlike many girls I have never taken drastic measures to change the way I look. All I have done is exercised significantly and eaten healthy foods. Like every girl in America I wanted to be like the women that I see on television.
“Five to ten million people have eating disorders nation wide; that includes eleven percent of high school students and up to nineteen percent of college students. Eighteen to twenty percent of people with anorexia will die within twenty years of diagnosis” (Lauren Gold). This is a statistic that must be changed for the benefit of today’s youth. Television is the way most individuals get information in the United States; therefore it is the media’s responsibility to portray a more realistic image for young girls.
I believe that it would be a great idea for CBS to run a show on this growing epidemic in America. Thank you for your time.
I want Sega Nintendo and Namco to have so much money. Sega, Nintendo and Namco if bought by Microsoft would make a dominating gaming force unlike any other.
Using Microsofts money they can make massive selling games; think of Shenmue 3 selling as much as halo 2, which sold 6.3 million copies in less than 2 months, imagine Shenmue 3 on Xbox 2 selling 6.3 million in less than 2 months plus on Xbox 2 it would sell even quicker as Shenmue 3 would be way better more than 8 times bigger or more than Halo 2, yes thats including the rest of the chapters and the end of the saga.
After Shenmue 3, AM2, Sega, DigitalRex can make other huger projects even bigger than Shenmue 3 imagine sonic team, AM2 Sega, DigitalRex together in one game like cool real life looking characters going into sonic theme parks, with sonic games in arcades and at home like a big master ambitious game, and Shigeru Miyamotos team also involved making Mario, Luigi, Wario and Rares team making Donkey Kong, Star Fox, Blast Corps 2 all in one game, as like you see the realistic characters playing the made Xbox 2 machine and playing Mario, Blast Corps 2 plus Sonic and Mario blimps in the special theme parks, made game shows like actually showing other xbox 2 games to buy, adds in many places like perfume adds, to make the places look more realistic like companies like General Motors, movie adds like I Robot like on the side of a train.
I'm not saying turn the game into an add but make it sell well so other games will be made quicker and better, plus all this having internet functionality, imagine talking about an in game funny tv add on one of the Plasma screen tvs, like Panasonics Plasma tvs, also another add man this game would sell.
This is a petition against the new "cartoon-like" graphics in the Legend of Zelda game coming out for Gamecube. At first, the graphics were supposed to be very realistic, like in the preview of Link and Ganondorf fighting. Now, they are very much like a cartoon, and not realistic at all. Many gamers were very excited about the amazing graphics, with the Gamecube's power, and now, almost all that power and excitement is going to waste.
If you agree that the graphics should be realistic and not like some cartoon please sign this petition. If you want to see the old realistic graphics, and then the new cartoons ones, go to http://cube.ign.com/previews/17012.html, which has videos of the realistic and cartoon graphics. Please Sign!
