The authors of the article I chose “Childhood Sexual Abuse, Distress, and Alcohol-Related Moderation by Drinking to Cope” were Kathryn Z. Smith, Phillip H. Smith and Emily R. Grekin. And their hypotheses was “childhood sexual abuse would be associated with distress, but that this distress would only be associated with problem drinking among those who scored high on coping motives for drinking”. Found on page four of ten. They started with the hypothesis that distress would mediate the pathway between childhood sexual abuse and problem drinking. Also that the pathway between distress and problem drinking would be moderated by coping motives for drinking. They used path analyses to examine the moderated-mediation.

In the periodical article, “South Africa: The Drug Trade's Bitter Taste," published by IRIN, a Kenyan-based news agency, states that South Africa is trying to reduce its issues, and that drugs correlate with crime rates in SA. The article supports this claim by detailing on a drug known as “tik”, or crystal methamphetamine. The drug causes aggressive behavior, which can last up to three or four hours, and is common in areas with high crime rates (South Africa: The Drug Trade's Bitter Taste). In addition, the article believes that certain drugs are used often by members of certain races.

Afterwards, the periodical states that one reason crime rates increase because of drugs is that people commit thievery in order to pay for their next hit. Towards the end of the text, the IRIN noted that while SA’s drug trade was parallel to its economic growth and disposable income, it’s also increased the amount of people in need of rehabilitation. The Institute for Security Studies’ Huebschle believes drug trade to be an international issue that needs every country’s help to reduce drug trade. SA’s police have
