    Do we find ourselves subscribing to and reaching for magazines in the checkout line that our parents read? I do. As I become more independent I see subtle changes in the styles around me but find myself grounded in what my parents, my brothers and my environment have familiarized me with. Strewn around me are volumes of "Outdoor Life", "Prevention", "Better Homes and Gardens", "Midwest Living", "Vogue" and "Masonry Construction." A magazine to satisfy many interests, each containing pieces of

    The idea of grit is to be used to help students improve on goals they’ve made, but in the The Downside of Grit by Alfie Kohn, he would argue that some things are better left alone instead of trying to pursue them and achieving them with little success.

    Research 1: Similar Magazines In all of these magazines, they display a photograph that takes up the middle third of the page, and this is because the target demographic (men aged 18-30) are generally more likely to view the centre third of the page grid first. Also, all of the magazine names are partially covered, which creates the impression that the magazines are well-known and their names do not need to be fully shown to be recognised. The photographs of the actors on these magazine front covers are

    I grew up in a town called Happy Valley, located just outside of Portland, Oregon. A lot of people from outside of town look at the name and make some sort of joke, like "Is everyone happy there or something?"

Oregon in general is a beautiful place, with a lot of lush greenery
