Social Media Affects On Teens

(This paper is completely research based. )

First, lets define “Social Media”. The term is used to describe what we share on the web or apps such as Facebook, Snapchat, Twitter, etc. Social media is any digital technology that allows people to instantly share or see information on the apps or the web.

When adults think of the effects that social media has on teens, they are quick to assume that it’s all bad. That it ruins our brains. Forces us into depression. Causes low self esteem. However, this is not always the truth.

Social media has always been in our lives, we don’t know a world without it. Unlike other generations before us. It’s nearly impossible to get away from it. It influences everything. That doesn’t mean it’s a bad thing though. There have been studies done that say about 70% of teens say that social media helped them through the hardest times in their lives. Apps like Pinterest, YouTube, and TikTok help inspire a teens creativity and help them express themselves and how they feel. Social media has also been proven to improve a teens social skills and positively impact friendships. It can even develop closer relationships with family. Through apps like Instagram, Twitter and Facebook. Being social increases self confidence and esteem. Many teens today are very introverted. Social media has been seen to change this drastically. Teens today actually feel very left out without it. 

However if used wrong, that’s when social media can become dangerous. Many people will argue that social media can affect sleep schedule, grades, and behavior in teens. That’s true, it can. It’s very easy to get addicted to social media, or even a device in general. Most adults are addicted to their phones as well. The average teen spends about 9 hours a day on social media. That’s why it’s important to have boundaries when it comes to the media. Actually, it’s been proven. If you don’t use your phone or device 1-2 hours before you fall asleep, you are bound to have some of the best sleep of your life. Which will help with grades and behavior. 

Another problem with teens and the media, often discussed, is body image. Most teenagers struggle with body image no matter what size they are. This is because our society has become so obsessed with putting the image in our minds that we need to become the “perfect person.” Even though there is no such thing. That’s why it’s so important for teens to talk to their parents or others about how the media is making them feel. They need to know that most of what people post on Instagram is fake. In order for them to maintain a healthy relationship with social media, and a healthy lifestyle.

What I’m trying to get through, is that the use of social media has only proven to be bad when it’s not used right, or used too much. That’s why it’s important for parents to be involved. Talk to their teen about social media, and how they feel, or how the parents feel. Teens get a lot more good things out of social media than bad. If used right, with correct boundaries, can improve their mental health, spark creativity, help them not feel left out among others, and help them become more social in this modern world.

Thanks for reading! Have a nice day!

Business lesson 45

Write 250 word essay on the business opportunity which most intrigued you this week.

Every week for the past 3 weeks I have been learning all about different business opportunity’s and how I can make a web based business out of them. The goal is to pick one or two that I find most interesting and start up my own web based business with it by the end of the year. I should have to stick with this business for the next 5 years until I’m making a significant amount of money off of it. That is the whole goal.

This week the business opportunity’s we looked at where blogging, photography, website security, and selling products online. I’m going to list my least favorite to favorite.

My least favorite would probably be “website security”. It doesn’t really seem to spark an interest with me.

Second least favorite would probably be “Selling products online”. If I did this I would have no idea what physical products to sell.

Third, is photography. I actually quite enjoy photography. However, If I had a business with photography, I would need to be really really good at taking photos. Most people now days have a smart phone, which have really good camera quality. Rare few people hire photographers anymore, or buy high priced photos online.

My favorite business opportunity I learned about this week was blogging. I could really see myself blogging for other peoples businesses. It sparks an interest in me. It sounds like something I could do for 5 years and not get bored. I have my own few blogs and love them. However, I would need to get much better at writing, but I could work at it.

Those are all the business opportunity’s I learned about this week. Thanks for reading1 Have a nice day!

Western Civilization lesson 45

What specific changes occurred in Roman society as a result of the Struggle of the Orders?

The struggle of the orders was a very significant time in Rome history. It went from 494 and lasted to 287 BC This was a political battle between the plebeians class ( Commoners who lives in Rome and where not very wealthy ), and the patrician class ( Very rich people ). They were at a dispute oh whether the plebeians should have as much freedom as the patricians.

The plebeian class was fed up with being treated like scum by the the patricians. So they all up and left Rome. They greatly outnumbered the patricians so this worked out well for them. Because it deprived the upper class from all their servants and subjects. The patricians begged them to return. Gradually, they did, but only if things would change for the plebeians. Things did change. Intermarriage between the two classes was now allowed. They allowed a person to enter a class they had not been in before. Enslaving people who owed you debt was no longer legal. By the year 342 BC, a plebeian was made a roman consul.

Biology lesson 40

Write a 150-250 word essay on:┬áIs cancer alive? Why aren’t doctors able to uncover a single cause or cure for it? Why isn’t cancer contagious?

Is cancer alive? Yes and no. It is not alive how humans are alive, however, cancer cells are alive. The more that they grow the more alive they become. Then they will turn into something like an organism. From there they multiply, spread and takeover.

So, why cant doctors find a single cure for it? This is because cancer is not just one disease. There are so many types of cancer, it would be impossible to find a single cause or cure. However there are some different types of treatment. One treatment that a lot of people use to try to treat the cancer is Chemo-Therapy. This a very expensive treatment and has proved to put the patient through a lot. Using cannabis has been found to fight against cancer. Studies have shown that THC and other cannabinoids like CBD can slow the growth and even cause death in certain cancer cells. Cannabis could even be used along side Chemo-Therapy to fight the bad side affects of the Chemo.

Lastly, why isn’t cancer contagious? This is because cancer is formed in your cells in your body. These cells cannot exist outside of you. Therefore, cancer is not contagious.

Western Civilization lesson 30

Why was the Peloponnesian war fought? What was its long term significance?

The Peloponnesian was was fought in Ancient Greece between the two main city states, Athens and Sparta. It began right after the Persian wars had ended in 449 BC. The two city states had a hard time agreeing on their respective spheres of influence and Sparta feared that the Athens had to much power, or at least more then Sparta had. So a war broke out between them. After many long battles the Spartans eventually won the war in 404 BC. This lead to the Spartans rise in power, and naval power. The Peloponnesian War marked the end of the Golden Age of Greece. The balance of power had completly shifted.
