In a Winston cigarette company advertisement that I found in a magazine, group of young and attractive people, who are smiling and presumably having fun, is shown. In the bottom, there is a sign: Can you say that we are cannot rest? This advertisement is for Winston cigarettes but there is not one cigarette in the picture. All this image does is portray a people having a fun time and it simply puts two packs of Winston and Winston Lights in the upper right hand corner. It is not fair that companies such as these can portray the idea of participating in activities such as smoking to be a pleasurable and fun experience. It is a proven fact that over 350,000 people a year die from smoking. With ...

As I had climbed aboard and strapped myself into my seat I felt tense, strange and extremely nervous. It was as if I was in a fantasy dream world and thought that at any moment I would wake up from this unreality and find that I was back in the barrack room at Bulford Camp. Whilst we laughed and sang to raise our spirits - and perhaps to show others that we were no scared - personally I knew that I was frightened to death.

The Outsiders - 1,513 words
"Among adolescents, so-called 'body talk' can be a major topic of discussion. This is the time when the body arrives to greet its owner, and how to respond with its obvious significance. With ease and enjoyment? With fear and constraint? With abandon, if not reckless abandon?" Robert Coles, (Coles 159).
