  • What questions do you have about the literature review? What do you still not understand about this assignment?

  • Read your partner’s homework. What advice could you give them after reading their thesis statement and topic sentences all in one paragraph? In other words, how do you think they can improve their literature review now? Hint: If you say “There can be no improvements,” you both will receive a 0/10 for this assignment.

  • Help your partner revise the wordiest sentence in their homework assignment. Write down the wordy sentence, and then show me the revision underneath it.

For the sake of the privacy of the person of interest, are we willing as a public deny the basic right of our press that is clearly stated on the 1st Amendment of the United States Constitution? Most of the press would agree that since these celebrities asked for this life in the spotlight, this is one of the consequences they will have to endure the rest of their lives. Celebrity status has been around a few decades, but the freedom of the press has been a divine right given at the birth of our constitution.

Now that I have presented the introduction all of the sources agree that taking performance enhancing drugs are damaging to a players health. They will shrink testicles because the body produces less testosterone. Their voices will become higher and they become more moody. The heart will also experience murmurs and irregular beats. Testing should also be done on the brain as in the way the NFL tests for concussions. This is a brief summary and synthesis of what I researched for my literature review. It is more so an abstract than an actual literature review. Here are my sources!!!!

This is unacceptable

This is unacceptable:

Jeong Woo Shin’s paper “Stress of University Student” shows us tells us that students go under many troubles while preparing for and taking tests. He talks about how students cannot get out a certain cycle. “When test term is coming, students study all day or cram for an exam. They do this because of their grades so they cannot sleep enough. Therefore, they drowse in their lecture. As a result, they cannot get good grades so they are trapped in a vicious circle. This vicious circle causes the stress for students(2).”

However, practitioners have hence thrown out such older beliefs, and have found that traditional acupuncture sites align with junctions in the peripheral nervous system. Studies have found that through acupuncture, pain relief is possible because “Acupuncture is known to stimulate A delta fibres entering the dorsal horn of the spinal cord. These mediate segmental inhibition of pain impulses carried in the slower, unmyelinated C fibres and, through connections in the midbrain, enhance descending inhibition of C fibre pain impulses at other levels of the spinal cord. This helps explain why acupuncture needles in one part of the body can affect pain sensation in another region” (Acupuncture).
