Growing up and body image | IU Southeast Horizon

Growing up and body image | IU Southeast Horizon | JinWon's Yr 9 Journal | Scoop.it
JinWon Kim's insight:

This article talks about how a woman had issues about body image and also about how this woman struggled to maintain a positive viewpoint on the way she looked as she grew up as a child. This article relates to what we have been studying at the beginning of the first term on our body image and self esteem. I agree that the media is creating high expectations for people and causes stress for many teenagers.

Parents of dead teen's warning to revellers

Parents of dead teen's warning to revellers | JinWon's Yr 9 Journal | Scoop.it
THE parents of a Sydney teenager who died after attending a Thai full moon party a year ago have urged young people to stay away from such events.
JinWon Kim's insight:

This article talks about how a 19 year old teenager has died after a night out with his friends at a party in Thailand. It states that when he was drunk he attempted to swim.  The teenager having been intoxicated could not swim properly and found himself near the deeper part of the water. This relates to what we have been studying in class as we have talked about how drinking can lead to poor decision making. I agree with the parents in the article when they said that parents should urge their children not to go to "these so-called party destinations' as I think that it would be easier for someone to pop a pill in your drink without you noticing when there are so many people around.

Durex to educate youth on STIs - Central - New Straits Times

JinWon Kim's insight:

This article discusses how a campaign called Choose2Protect is being run by a company called Durex. The purpose of the campaign was to educate the youth of Malaysia about STI's and the risks of STI. This relates to what we have been studying in class as we have been learning about the different types of STI's, the risks of STI's and also ways to prevent them. It states in the article that with better knowledge the young adults of Malaysia will be able to make better decisions against STI's and I agree with this as I also believe that without a better understanding of STI's you wouldn't know about the risks involved and how harmful it can be if left untreated.

Texas teen Ethan Couch gets 10 years' probation for driving drunk, killing 4

Texas teen Ethan Couch gets 10 years' probation for driving drunk, killing 4 | JinWon's Yr 9 Journal | Scoop.it
A judge has sentenced a teen in Texas to 10 years' probation for driving drunk and causing a crash that left two people severely injured and four others dead.
JinWon Kim's insight:

This article discusses about a Teenager from Texas who went drink driving and got 4 innocent people killed. The judge sentenced Ethan to for a 10 year probation, but many were disappointed and said that Ethan was let off too easily. This relates to what we have learnt about in class as we have learnt about how dangerous drink driving is and that we should always have a sober friend with us who is the designated driver. I agree with what the article says in the fact Ethan should have received a longer sentence and should have been sent to jail as he killed 4 people. I believe that he should be put on trial again for murder.
