In American society there are many different subsets, or groups of people around the United States. There is a specific group I have decided to choose to study is Skaters. I chose this group because I feel they are a very interesting group of people and I feel that this
The elementary school I work at services students in a low- socioeconomic area. At least, 75% of our students qualify for the free or reduced lunch program. Meaning, in their households there is not much extra (if any) money to participate in sports.
There are many differences between interscholastic and recreational sports programs. The first big difference is the affect that school work and grades affect your participation. In a recreational sports program, they are not looking at your grades to see if you are doing well enough to continue to play. Whereas with interscholastic sports you must maintain a certain GPA, you are required to attended class, along with other stipulations that they may have from a program. An athletic director is responsible for making sure that students that are participating in the interscholastic events are maintaining the requirements that they must meet. With the recreational sports program the athletic director most likely hires someone to organize the events and that’s about all the athletic does with recreational sports. Another difference between interscholastic and recreational is that some people who are participating in interscholastic sports are getting scholarships towards their education. Making sure that the students are following those specific guidelines to keep their scholarship is something that and athletic director must keep track of. With recreational sports an athletic director doesn’t have to worry at all about it. Overall an athletic director doesn’t have
For the purpose of this paper, the community being analyzed will involve the population that lives within the boundaries of the Nutley, New Jersey. Nutley, a township within Essex County, New Jersey, is home to a dense population of individuals within its small borders. It meets the criteria of a community due to the fact that the individuals share some mutual characteristics (Kirst-Ashman, 2011). Nutley is a residential neighborhood that consists of 11,301 households. Nutley, New Jersey is also a geographical community, where individuals share the common variable of location (Kirst-Ashman, 2011).

The foundation of any food system includes natural resources and the knowledge and skill to manipulate them with technology and labor. The economic ability to apply each of these is also paramount to the functionality of that system. “Long Island’s unique ecological and socio-economic environments are the result of our region’s mix of topography, climate, land use, history, traditions, government policies, and economic practices.”(“LI Food System Report Card” 2014) Researching the deep history of this bioregion confirmed my suspicions that human impact poses the greatest strain on this food system.
What causes the young people partaking in high school sports to miss out on the other events of the regular students is their extreme commitment to their sport. High school athletes often over-exert themselves in preparation for their sports. In addition to the in-season commitment of hours of practice daily in addition to games, the off-season is often more demanding. There are countless hours of preparations such as conditioning and weight-training. These often take the same amount of time as the in season games and practices, if not more. There are also other activities, like in football there are combines, camps, and passing tournaments. Sports like field hockey, soccer, and basketball have similar camps but are often also have club teams. These
Community Characteristics The community that my group and I chose to assess was Fishtown. It is a small neighborhood compared to some of the others in Philadelphia but it comes with a lot to offer. On the outskirts of the neighborhood, specifically, along Girard Ave and Frankford Ave, there are a variety of businesses. The vast majority of the businesses in Fishtown are coffee shops, small restaurants, and bars. It also has butchers, boutiques and small thrift and antique store. As you go deeper into the neighborhood, you will find many families. Fishtown was always described as a working class neighborhood but the businesses in the earlier years where different.

“Why are travel teams popular?” Sports are universal and make up a good majority of kids’ extra-curricular involvement these days. As a person who has played sports for most of my life, I can definitely say that I enjoyed being a part of travel sports teams in the offseason. Whenever a person is passionate about something, they tend to work a little harder, succeed more often and reach the goals they set for themselves; travel sports allow for this. They allow you to work on your skills and athletics outside of your regular season, but also allow you to have fun while doing it. Sports were made for two types of people: the people that enjoy sports just for the exercise, social aspect and having fun, and the people who are competitive, have a driven passion and want to continue with their sport into the future. After reading the article, “Michelle Obama: All kids should play sports, not just

Long Island’s rental housing market share remains around 20%, whereas the average share of rental housing in neighboring regions sit at around 33%. There is only a 4.3% rental vacancy rate due to the rental housing shortage. As a result of this weak rental housing market, Long Island, more than any other New York Region, has lost a greater share of its younger residents (18-34) at a deficit of 16% over the last 25 years. Many of the younger residents cannot afford to make a down payment on a home in this region.
