On January 22nd of 2016, a shooting occurred at the Dene high school campus of the La Loche Community School in Saskatchewan. Authors Ben Spurr and Joanna Smith make it very clear to their readers that the 17 year old male suspect, who is charged with four counts of first-degree murder and seven counts of attempted murder, was a victim of bullying and kept to himself. The accused first opened fire on two brothers, aged 15 and 17, in their home before killing two teachers and injuring seven other in the community school.

     The number of children that kill themselves is small, however it is not zero. The federal government in Canada states that 1.8 in 100,000 children between the ages of 10 to 14 died due to suicide. I was able to find 3 articles posted in different locations in regards to the issue about the increase in child suicide. The first article was published on the Huffington Post talking about Canada’s crisis of child suicide, the second is about how an 11 year old committed suicide due to bullying and the third about how in Hong Kong more children commit suicide than die in accidents.

Famous, or might one say infamous, for their line of lingerie entitled 'Body' released a little over a year ago, Victoria's Secret reminded everyone once again of the one dimensional and homogenous portrayal of women in the media. The above original version of the ad  had the words "The Perfect ' Body'" in its center and featured almost exclusively white women sporting the ever popular waif look.
