Angus Day's insight:

WOW. I understand the want to look good and be healthy but it makes me unhappy when i see that the media is again manipulating and controlling how we should see and think about ourselves. again in class we have studied body image and self confidence but i never had a problem with how i look.

Obesity to overtake smoking as worst heart disease risk factor

Obesity to overtake smoking as worst heart disease risk factor | Angus' Year 9 Journel | Scoop.it
Obesity is set to overtake smoking as the most common risk factor for heart disease in Canada next year, a new study suggests.
Angus Day's insight:

Although both smoking is terrible it scares me that obesity is becoming so common that it will "overtake smoking as worst heart disease risk factor". although we haven't study much about obesity in class, we have discussed keeping up habits that can help you be fit.

유행에 민감한 십대들이 조금씩 페이스북을 떠나고 있다는 소식이다. 페이스북이 얼마나 민감하게 반응 할지 기대가 된다. 

 

Numbers show that teenagers are abandoning Facebook slowly. I wonder how Facebook is responding to this.

Teenager faces life in prison for baking weed brownies

Teenager faces life in prison for baking weed brownies | Angus' Year 9 Journel | Scoop.it
Jacob Lavoro, a 19-year-old from Texas, could face life behind bars for a batch of space cakes (“@DazedMagazine: This American teenager faces life in prison for baking weed brownies: http://t.co/TeUS7YGKGX”...
Angus Day's insight:

It is terrible that students in states like texas have access to such an appalling drug like marijuana and it is also terrible that they are able to distribute so easily in the form of cakes. although what Jacob Lavoro did is terrible I do think that a life sentence is a bit extreme for someone his age. My class has discussed the use of illicit drugs in teenagers and the effects it can have on your life but we studied the use of not just marijuana but the use of drugs in general.
