Busy World

We live in a world of movement. Everything is always on the run from one place to another. People have become lazy and fat. This is because this generation of people are always looking for the best and quickest way to get something done. This though isn’t always the best way to go about things though. Social media has had a vast impact on the for industry in recent years. People aren’t living in the moment anymore and are living through their cell phones and social media. This generation of people care about the amount of likes they get on a picture or when they are going to post their next picture on Facebook. Which makes them forget and miss all the good that is happening right in front of them.

“The phenomenon known as the “eat and tweet” has flooded social media feeds with mouthwatering food photos.” (MENULOG) In recents years Facebook and other social media sites have been flooded with new food accounts. People have started making accounts of the food they eat. One of the popular accounts near me is about all of the good places in NYC to eat. Not only has this made people go to these places for good food, but many of the posts are of unhealthy food. Not all of the posts are bad, but it has started a trend in the way people act when they get so called “trendy food.” People are going out to eat and before they even touch the food they need to post a picture of it. This has taken away a lot of social interactions in a personal way. People are no longer living in the moment they are living through posts and likes. This has become unhealthy and counter productive.

On facebook a new trend has evolved where accounts teach people how to make different kinds of foods. Not all of this is bad though. Some of the accounts are for unhealthy food and there are some that make healthy food. This though has defiantly had an impact on people though. They are now seeing food wherever they go and more thank likely it is unhealthy.

Each day we find out more and more ways of how technology is affecting us in ways we don’t even realize. In an article from the Huffinton post, by Lindsey Holmes, “Sneaky Ways Technology Is Messing With Your Body And Mind.” it covers the ways i which technology is affecting us in these quote on quote sneaky ways.

First off, it is found that from a study conducted by New York spine surgeon Kenneth Hansard, that by staring down at your phone constantly can actually have harmful affects on your back and spine.

Having trouble with keeping your pores clean? Just think about all the paves you bring your phone. Then think about the things you touch wth your hands.

Deliberation Nation

The deliberation that i went to went over sexual assault. This topic was very similar to the topic that my group had covered, sexual education. Sexual assault though happens to be sub category of the prevention I did. I learned a lot from this one though. Sexual assault is a major issue around the world today. It is happening for many reasons. There are many different reasons for why sexual assault is happening today. One of these reasons is not understanding what consent is. Consent is often a blurred line for many people. It is very important that both people understand what they are participating in. Major reason why people get into trouble is when alcohol gets involved. People are not in the right state of mind to say they can consent when under the influence. Many of the issues that arise are coming from alcohol. People are not in the right state of mind to really consent. There are many things that we can do on our campus in order to help decrees this issue. People need to just be more verbal about consent otherwise the issue will never be solved. Penn state take action against this issue and provides many different programs to keep the students safe. My presentation went into this issue a little but but not into as much detail. It is important that the students at penn state feel safe. Penn state is creating rules in order to help its students. Sexual assault is a big issue. Its a difficult issue to combat and the deliberation shed light on its issues and ways to help prevent sexual assault.

Fast food

Americas society over the past century has grown not only in size as population, but also in its waist sizes for its people. There was been a massive increase in the amount of fast foods places in the states over the past few years. This spike is due to the people wanting connivance. The culture has changed, people are always in a rush which makes them not have time for things they have had time for in the past. “There has been an exponential rise in the number of obese individuals especially in developed nations like United States.” (News Medical and Life Science) The fast food places are not healthy places to eat at often.

Even though people have crazy lives it is not a reason to eat unhealthy. Obesity rates have increase drastically over the past years. The food that is being prepared for people to eat isn’t from the best sources even if it is something like a salad. Many times these ingredients used in the healthier food options aren’t from the best sources which has its own problems along with it. The prices don’t lie, you can’t get quality food for so cheap. This is a major issue people shouldn’t eat this food even if it is cheap because it is cause all kinds of health problems across the globe. The kinds of ingredients that are used when cooking these foods are from the lowest source. The real issue life within the big business owners. The companies that are all over the globe are a massive supplier of money and jobs. The companies just need to reevaluate the ingredients that they use in their food so everyone can live a healthier life.
