This article is about ads targeting teenagers and exploiting their lack of knowledge to increase profit gain.

It is a good story because it brings awareness to to teenager's age and how vulnerable they are to false and misleading advertising

The NSW Police Commissioner Andrew Scipione claims NSW needs to debate alcohol advertisement's methods and its affects on adolescents.
It is a good article because it portrays very simply and clear what it is about and which side of the 'drink till you drop' culture that is supported.

In this article, statistics are showing that teenagers are drinking alcohol at younger ages because of advertising and increasing independence. That leads to increase chances of mental health issues, alcohol dependence and experimentation with illicit drugs.

This is a good article because of credible statistics and the objectivity of the story.

This article says that teenagers these days are more exposed to alcohol which by the statics are shown to be true. Teenagers are more dependant and fill the need to fit in. All the information shows that it affects teenagers health.

I thought this was a great article to read, as it gives statistics that show that teenagers are drinking alcohol at increasingly younger ages cause mainly by influence from parents/guardians/TV/friends/siblings or just gernerally wanting o experiment with independance. This article explains the increasing chances of mental health issues in younger people cause by alcohol and drugs.

This is a relevant article because 437 adolescents were picked up off Perth's streets while handling drugs and alcohol
Tessa Fergusson's curator insight, May 16, 2013 7:34 AM

The article gives us information we need to know about teens & their families today. People are ignoring these types of things, hoping it actaully isnt happening when it is. Over 400 teens were taken off the streets (late at night) with alcohol & drugs in their hands. This is a problem need to be delt with as they're doing in Perth, all they need is help so we should be giving it to them.
