please edit my paper ASAP!!? by balletchic Q: hi guys! okay i just wrote this paper... please edit it, i need it to be finalized asap. pease leave all opinions about the topic alone. The modeling industry is damaging girls’ body image and promoting eating disorders by allowing models to walk in fashion shows and be in magazine ads that are unnaturally skinny. Designers in Spain made a bold statement when they announced that they are now placing limits on how skinny a model can be to walk on their catwalk. That announcement sent shockwaves through the modeling industry, which is notorious for pushing models to be their thinnest and the cause for several models to develop eating disorders. Placing limits on how skinny models can be will help girls understand that being stick thin is not pretty, and being comfortable in your own skin is. Looking at magazines or seeing ads for clothing stores all you see are these gorgeous skinny models looking really happy standing next to these attractive boys and young girls admire that. These stick thin models are idolized by young girls and teens and are setting a bad example. "Young girls aspire to look like the catwalk models. When those models are unhealthily underweight, it pressurizes girls to starve themselves to look the same," Stated Culture Secretary Tessa Jowell during an interview in fashion week in Madrid (cbsnews.com). Having size zero girls everywhere in every magazine is effecting girls self image and health. As early as grade one, girls feel the pressure to be thin. According to a study on pre-adolescent children, 42% of 1st-3rd grade girls want to be thinner (Collins 1991) as a result from our culture placing so much emphasis on being thin. Some girls have the self-esteem to dismiss these pictures in magazines, but not many. Many girls diet and go to extreme lengths such as developing anorexia to look like these models on the catwalk, even though these models are 98% thinner than the average American. The ultra thin look is really unobtainable by most naturally. Self esteem raising ads have started to come out lately in order to combat the rise in eating disorder statistics. Ads such as Dove and Hanes have showed commercials and print ads of average sized women who love their body. Promoting these healthy images should appear more in magazines and on the runway in order to help girls realize that stick thin is not attractive or glamorous, and that being happy and comfortable in your own skin is. If the modeling industry was to stop pressuring models to be extremely thin and more models appeared in print ads that were closer to the average girl, more girls wouldn’t resort to drastic eating measures. Teens and young girls would learn to love their body and would stop thinking they need to lose weight and find that they do not need to compare their bodies to anyone else’s.

If the modeling industry was to stop pressuring models to be extremely thin and more realistic models appeared in print ads, fewer girls would resort to drastic measures with their eating habits. Teens and young girls would stop thinking that they need to lose weight. They would learn to love their bodies and find that they do not need to compare their bodies to anyone else. um...u did want me to do the edits for u, right?...and i didn't want to change ur writing style....

please summarize this 300 words articles into 100 words? by red_devil07 Q: John Reid wants everyone in the country to take part in the government's big debate on public health. He is looking for ideas on how to tackle "worrying trends" in obesity, sexually transmitted infections and cancer. He wants to know just far people think the government should go to try to improve the nation's health. Should it ban smoking in public places? Should it restrict junk food advertising? Should it give free condoms to young people? Mr Reid says responses to the three-month consultation exercise will influence a new white paper on public health to be published later this year. However, critics say the exercise is a waste of time. They point to last week's report from Derek Wanless, the former chief executive of NatWest. He was asked by the Treasury to examine what the government should do to improve the nation's health. His conclusion was clear. "After many years of reviews and government policy documents with little change on the ground, the key challenge now is delivery and implementation, not further discussion," he said. Some believe ministers are simply in a muddle over public health. They point to comments by Culture Secretary Tessa Jowell on calls for junk food ads to be banned. Speaking on BBC Radio 4's Today programme just hours before John Reid launched his consultation exercise, she said she was sceptical about the merits of such a ban. "Whatever happened to joined up government," says Charlie Powell of Sustain, a pressure group which is leading the campaign for a ban. "I think she pre-empted the consultation," says Professor Sian Griffiths, president of the Faculty of Public Health. There is some concern that ministers may be simply putting off making the tough decisions. "The consultation will mean further delay in action to tackle very urgent public health problems in areas such as tobacco, alcohol, obesity," says Professor Carol Black of the Royal College of Physicians. "This college, like many other organisations, has produced detailed evidence-based recommendations on these issues which already provide answers to many of the questions posed in 'Choosing Health?"

A: It's YOUR homework, and it's for you own benefit. Instead of waiting for answers on Yahoo, you could've been done with you homework.

Is it sexist that women don't have a wrestling event at the Olympics? by doodlebugjimv8 Q: UK government Olympics minister Tessa Jowell thinks its sexist, and is starting a campaign to put pressure on the International Olympics Committee to stage female wrestling and boxing events. She wrote: "I think it's wrong that women can't compete in as many events as men. Women's sport has come on leaps and bounds so it's high time there was equal opportunity at the Olympics" A spokesman for the British Wrestling Association commented that "I can't say that this desire for equality is being driven from the grass roots" http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-1145842/Jowells-fight-bring-female-boxing-London-Olympics.html Should we spend taxpayer's money on promoting something that only feminists seem to want? For the feminists: should female wrestlers and boxers compete with men? To clarify the second question: Feminists: should female wrestlers and boxers fight against male wrestlers and boxers?

A: she can do that but how many people will watch those sports? men's sports are always there because people watch them not many will watch the same sports with women.

£400,000 later and that's the best Olympic logo they can come up with? by Open your eyes Q: That Tessa Jowell is trying to make a joke out of the whole thing. I cannot believe the fool tessa Jowell actually said that the logo was worth the money. She is an idiot.

A: You are right. They said they wanted this logo because it would appeal to the 'future generation'. What they should have done is open a competition to schools to design the best one. At the end the school with the winner would get maybe £50,000 in resources for the school. That way the schools win (for a much smaller cost) and the 'future generations' get a logo they appreciate. What annoys me more than anything is even though everyone hates it and people have had medical issues as a result of it, they STILL won't change it.

Is Britain becoming a Banana Republic? by Hannibal Lickter Q: Or do our politicians need another trough refill ? http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-1173566/Tessa-Jowell-offered-Olympic-cash-bid-family-friend-seat-parliament.html Apologies to the countries that actually grow bananas.

A: Any serious question based on an article from the Daily Mail is totally missing the point. You may as well ask 'Are pedophiles taking over Britain?' or 'Why are all Asylum Seekers in Al-Quaeda'?. Read some real news mate.

Tessa Jowell- Idiot or politician? by poppy vox Q: British casinos will be banned fron introducibg oxygen to keep punters awake and offering free drinks to befuddle them. To what measures will the operators therefore now resort?

A: So you do serious questions at 3am GMT too, eh :-). The operators will always, en masse, do what they can legally - they'll push as far as they can. If they can't pump in oxygen, you can be sure they'll have a few extra windows open :). If no free drinks, then darn cheap ones.....free mini-bars....and you can take those cans into the gambling hall of course, folks! With re. to my Q, what games do you play?
