The major sports industry is at least a 100 billion dollar business and growing. The athlete’s income only consist of a small percent of this amount, which leaves the majority to the industry itself.

Playing Game

...Playing a computer game every day can have more negative than positive effects on children. Do you agree or disagree? Video games are developing rapidly, and many children like playing them. Unfortunately some of children play them all day without taking a break or speaking with other people. This essay will describe the negative and positive effects of playing computer games every day on young people, and then compare them. The young can learn educational subjects from playing games. For example, they can learn problem-solving skills. If they cannot finish a stage in a game, they have to think of how to play it to finish the stage and to try it again. If they still cannot finish the stage, they have to think of another method. Furthermore, some computer games are for education and through playing these games, children can learn math and spelling. However, negative effects of playing computer games every day are often researched and discussed. Firstly, playing games every day for a long time is unhealthy for the young. In my opinion, children should play sports outside, which make them healthy. Subsequently, playing games every day may cause bad eye sights. Moreover, playing games may make adolescents aggressive. Young people are developing and don’t have appropriate moral values. Children enjoy the sense of accomplishment when they kill a character, then they can become violent or might not recognize the differences between real and virtual worlds. I Japan...

The essay will also answer some obvious questions such as how the game is played, how the players interact with the game, how the players interact with one another and the relationship of the game to real life. Virtually, all video games are defined by their various limitations. Like any other games, the most open video games have incentives and boundaries that help in directing the actions of the player. The boundaries are the essential rules defining the game. Rules aid in the provision of the objectives and structure dictating the basic form or nature of the game and ensuring the provision of policies regarding minor issues within the game’s framework. The other important element of the game is for each player to have a given degree of control within the limitation of the game dictated by the game’s formative reset.

Benefits of Children Playing Sports

...Benefits of Children Playing Sports Eng/147 Encouraging children to play sports will enhance their team building skills, understand what commitments are, and will build a child’s confidence. The biggest and most important things that children learn about playing sports are team building skills. It has been generally agreed upon by researchers that sports can promote healthy development. (Holt, Kingsley, & Tink, 2011). It has been been seen through out the years that the majority of jobs in the workforce are looking for people who both know how to lead and follow. When children grow up playing team sports they grow up with the understanding of the importance for teamwork. Commitments are a very important part of not only playing team sports, but also in anything that want to do as they get older. One of the biggest problems that can be seen by the children of today is that when things get tough they just quit. When children grow up with a thought process like this it only hurts them when they get older. I can remember a few years after I joined the Marine Corps I started to notice the change in the mentality of the younger Marines. One in particular comes to mind. I kid not even 18 yet came over to ask me a question about deploying to Iraq. I told how it was and that things would be fine because we are a team and everyone of us counts.
