In the research article, Life Goals Among Greek College Students, they did a study on Greek students and how they would rank their life goals out of nineteen different categories raked from one to five. The study was conducted at Bucknell University; Ninety-six students were used from different sororities and fraternities. The question that Abowitz and Knox were trying to answer was ‘Do fraternity and sorority members rank a life in public service or political office over the general idea that fraternities and sororities create more of a personal and emotional goal.’ It was found that indeed fraternity and sorority members think about personal and emotional goals over a life in public service or political office.

What do you call them? Bouncing Balls, Balance Balls, Exercise Balls, Stability Balls, or Therapy Balls? No matter what you call them, did you know it could improve your learning? According to Karen Lynch, who wrote How Sitting on a Ball Helps Kids Focus and Do Better In School, says that bouncing on a ball can in fact lead to better grades overall. Today, doctors are recommending sitting on a ball to children who have a hard time focusing in the classroom or any sensory processing disorders. Since the 1960s when bouncing balls were created, society has been finding new ways that they could be beneficial to us whether it be through exercise or learning. In 1980, 2003, and 2007 studies were done that concluded that bouncing balls would be a valuable tool that could be used inside of the classroom.

We introduce violence to boys at very young age through movies like American movie “Kung Fu Panda” in which characters are fun for kids to watch, but in the mean time they are exposed to violence situations.

Australian native, Alan Leslie Styman was diagnosed with narcolepsy in 2004. For those who aren't aware, narcolepsy is a chronic sleep disorder, which gives you an "excessive" urge to sleep, at what can be charecterized as "innapropriate" times. In 2010, due to his narcolepsy, Styman crashed his car into a tree, killing his finacee. Just prior to the accident, Styman experienced a "microsleep", which is a brief sleep period.
