Matthew Ludwick – Bullying

When I was in grade school, I was bullied a lot. Sometimes it was for me being short, sometimes it was for my glasses, but most of the time it was due to my race, and most of the time it was from Caucasians. I’ve been called names, pushed, not allowed to do things, and […]

Mayweather VS McGregor

With the recent announcement of Mayweather VS McGregor many people are counting out McGregor. I have to agree with them.

Our Unfit Children

Following up on a fitness study that revealed child fitness declining by 8% over the previous ten years, researchers at the University of Essex in the UK have reported an even larger drop in fitness in schoolchildren.  However, this time they found that the children they tested were actually thinner than those measured in 2008.
