Pros and Cons of extreme/adventure sports.
Dangerous activities like extreme skiing, bungee jumping etc. and whether you
support them or not.

It is irrefutable to say that, the popularity of extreme sports have continually increasing
from last few decades. These days in many countries people like to play skydiving,
bungee jumping, bull fighting, and etc rather than going for traditional sports.
Considering this, some analyst argue that people should not play these sports, while
others opine it helps people to increase their confidence. This essay will discuss some
advantages and disadvantages of adventure sports before giving an appropriate
Agree (In favor)

Disagree(Not in Favor)

To begin, most people are keen to play
extreme sports for many reasons.
Perhaps the fundamental reason is
that, people want to overcome fear
against certain things. For example,
bungee jumping, a sport which people
leap off from several hundred metres
high with just a rope tied to their feet,
requires a great deal of courage.
Another important reason is that, these
sports tend to be highly stimulating. It
is often a good way to relieve anxiety
and tension which come from various
aspects. Furthermore, a lot of fame
and money is involved in these sports.
Players easily come in the limelight
by doing stunts on motorcycles and
jumping from tall buildings which
eventually make celebrities. Above all,
playing these games person becomes
physically and mentally fit due to
which he or she can live his or her life
in a healthy way.

On the other hand, opponents of extreme
sports say that, these sports are very
dangerous which may cause lifethreatening threat. For instance, if a rope
tears while bungee jumping, a participant
will be seriously injured or even die. In
addition, equipment needed for these
sports are very expensive, sometimes a
person cannot purchase them which
increases the chance of tragedy.
Furthermore, youngsters who gravitate
toward these types of sports do not
concentrate on their studies, due to which
they are not able to get lucrative jobs.

these are conducted in the presence of invigilator. They have their reasons as well. In last. The large shopping malls are not often convenient for lower and middle class population. Large shopping malls are replacing small shops. and restaurants etc. Thus. big shopping malls have immense benefits to the modern society that outweigh the options and conveniences offered by the small shops. we can say that it is not a reliable method to judge student capabilities. Evaluation method of a student’s performance has always been an area of contention around the world. It may be defined as majority of them prefer to go to the shopping malls rather than the single stores because varieties of options are available in one complex. As a result. . however. What is your opinion about this? Discuss with appropriate examples. Continual assessment such as coursework and projects is not a satisfactory way to do this. I believe the latter is more appropriate option. There are some groups who are in favour of single shops and opine that this trend should be continued. this can be considered as a more reliable method of testing one’s ability. Many believe that this can be done by continual assessment of their assignments and project work. For example. Not only this. First and foremost time saving from shopping from such multi-complex buildings could be significant factor. As a result shoppers have to spend a long time in the parking bays rather than the shopping in small shops. upon which opinion varies greatly. That restricts students to take any external help. This can be proved by analysing the fact that the homework and projects done at home can be copied and also memory of a student can be tested only through a formal assessment. especially on weekends and holidays. pharmacies. clothes. There including excursive crowding in the shopping complex. I believe the method should be implied across the globe and it can be predicted that many countries will adopt this way of assessment because of its effectiveness. people are also in favour of formal examination. the projects are also copied in order to submit the same on time. banks. looking at the discussion it is clear that advantages of formal testing outweighs the advantages of testing by assignments and projects. groceries. The prices in large shopping malls are often unreasonable and people end up purchasing more than they actually need. a great number of shopping malls has established in past two decades in almost all cities of the world. the work book assignments submitted by the students are not always done by them. undoubtedly. Therefore. are all available under a single roof and people get better environment from such establishment. Parking problems could be substantial reason behind the opponent's viewpoint. In spite of views discussed above regarding why large shopping malls are ideal to the modern society. There are reasons for people to believe that large shopping malls are important to be established as multi stories shopping malls come with a large number of stores and other facilities under one roof. the examination that is taken in education institutes make students learn the concept and also memorize the same that they have studied in their class.Formal examinations are the only effective way to assess a student's performance. Therefore. Secondly. as far as I am concerned. cinemas. On the other hand. people are motivated to buy their necessities from competitive market. Moreover. food courts. This shows how much grasping power does an individual have. The question whether this boom of mall's trend is positive or negative is a complex issue. To conclude. whether shopping in a large shopping complex or single small shops could be matter of discussion.

Or Any recent invention that you think proved beneficial or detrimental to society It is evident how life has changed since technology has been introduced in the human life. human workers retain less value. humans become almost disabled until the problem is resolved. Agricultural processes that once required dozens upon dozens of human workers can now be automated. At the same time. This results in cost savings for business owners.

Medical discoveries occur at a much more rapid rate. where just about everything is more convenient and accessible due to advances in technology across almost all sectors. thanks to advances in technology. Technology advances show people a more efficient way to do things. despite how far technology has taken humans and no matter how convenient it may make things. there have been many inventions such as antibiotics. Technological advancements such as computers have been designed and created with the only purpose to help humans and make their lives easier. which contributes on a positive level to the economy as a whole. education has been greatly advanced by the technological advances of computers. Students are able to learn on a global scale without ever leaving their classrooms. The more advanced society becomes technologically. it may seem as though it's a misnomer to even mention any disadvantages of technological advances. . there are some disadvantages accompanying this level of access. Companies find they don't need to employ as many people to get the job done which is a disadvantage of technological advances. the more people begin to depend on computers and other forms of technology for everyday existence. they can display and let you manipulate stored information. Computers have become indispensable in any workplace where they are basically considered a compliment for people to help them on developing their activities. thanks to machines and computers that aid in the research process and allow for more intense educational research into medical matters.

However. if he or she wishes for their job to be secure. people are now worried about their once private information becoming public knowledge. while information technology may have streamlined the business process it has also crated job redundancies. while others opine people must complete their academic path first.

Bridging the cultural gap . some people argue that getting married prior to settlement of career is good. Agree Disagree . so government should create some laws to handle negative side of mass communication. mass communication has tremendous benefits for all of us. It is argued that getting married before finishing school or getting a job is not a good choice. easier and more convenient.Information technology has helped to bridge the cultural gap by helping people from different cultures to communicate with one another. This essay will assert both sides of the argument before delivering a reasonable conclusion. The internet has also opened up face to face direct communication from different parts of the world thanks to the helps of video conferencing. we should keep in our mind that every garden has some weeds. Industry experts believe that the internet has made job security a big issue as since technology keeps on changing with each day. downsizing and outsourcing.

Thirdly. Some people believe law changes human behaviour. they do not get enough time to study and most of them leave their study. Do you agree/disagree? It is possible to pass laws that control or place limits on people’s behaviour. as maturity level is low in youngsters chances of divorce increases. there are many disadvantages if a person marries before 30 years. Specifically. women have to sacrifice their professional life because of caring their children and they have to depend on their husband. Conclusion: To recapitulate. due to which. but legislation cannot reform human nature. .however if this was true there would not have been such a high crime rate as we see today.An acute system like this is enough to keep people from all kinds of crimes and wrongdoings. For instance.To maintain such a control. laws are developed to discipline the society and so that every individual can live in peace and harmony without any insecurities and fears. rules are formulated to prevent all offences and punishment are devised for every social and personal transgression so that crimes once committed are not repeated again. Lastly. marrying late is a better option than marrying in early age. if these youngsters get married earlier they get a partner to help them.To begin. On the other hand. Secondly. mostly parents force their children to live separately. Moreover. I pen down saying that. Furthermore.Laws cannot change what is in people’s hearts and minds. But when they marry they get more freedom to go out with her husband and enjoy the life more. individuals have to take more responsibilities toward their family. marrying at an early age also increases the population. girls have many restrictions in their parents house. To start with . in developed countries. This makes a person a more responsible and mature before taking this crucial step.Many problems of modern society cannot be solved by laws and legal system because moral behaviour cannot be legislated. Firstly. it is proved that people who married in early age have greater number of children as compared to those who married in late in their life. according to India's 2014 population statistics. if a person marries in an early age then he or she has more time to spend with their loved ones before they die.

There can be little doubt that a child’s development is most susceptible to the nurture and education from his or her parents. For those reasons. Such a practice is . but rather intuitive and accidental. Also there is an active collaboration required between the legal system and the reformatory facilitative organisations to bring in a necessary change to the lives of individual who went on such a heinous path. To conclude . there is no surprise that parents play a vital role in molding the behaviors of their children. Firstly. If young individuals are provided with a healthy and educational environment in which their mannerisms are well taught. in my opinion . only then it will help transform human immorality which in turn will facilitate the development of a peaceful novel society. Such a notion appears to be supported by a multitude of people. delinquents frequently share an unhappy childhood where they lack parental guidance as a result of various reasons. Judging by most cases. such as divorces. The issue that attracts more attention and discussion is whether the parents should be liable for any law-offending act committed by their kids. Often. What is your opinion? Support it with personal examples. many people strongly suggest that parents should be responsible any law-breaking act of their children. The majority of countries around the world have endorsed legislation which formally recognizes the children’s legal responsibility for their action when they are over 18 years of age. it is likely that they will become ethical adults in the future. Law should not just be a system of restriction and punishments but also of rehabilitation. A punishment in such cases may deter the individual from doing it again but a more contemplative question here is whether such a punishment brings in any reform which I think is not the case. In contrast. a youngster’s illegal action is rarely motivated by a clear incentive.Also humans have a tendency of getting intrigued and do something which is generally not allowed to. to thwart a crime the state of the mind and heart of the individual should be explored to determine the core cause which perpetuated the crime. children’s behaviors are a reflection of surrounding elements. especially their parents’ influence. Parents should be held legally responsible for their children’s acts.

However. a business needs to consider these factors closely in order to run it successfully and profitably. in a business.widely supported as people are generally conscious of their behaviors and able to judge right and wrong at that stage of life. old stock is sold at discounts due to the arrival of new stocks or if a business is going out of business. the business offers customers a reduction in price. Various marketing strategies have to be utilized in order to increase the profits of a business. As a result. Sometimes. Only when individuals reach adulthood should such a rule is no longer needed and be relaxed. advertising this factor will also encourage buyers to purchase other items which are not on sale too. In addition. Marketing strategy for big companies should be placed on offer and discounts. This can be due to a special season. this can be a twoedged sword. the profit margin in the store will decline as the goods are sold at reduced prices. It is not an easy task deciding if offering discounts in a business is good choice or a bad one. As suggested by the aforementioned reasons. If the marketer does not give the discount customer may be discouraged and look at other areas to conduct business.If only certain items are on sale. This essay is about the pros and cons of offering discounts in a business.although there will be sales. On the other hand. Many customers may be put off by this reputation and stop visiting the store. a shop that offers discounts always provides the reputation that the business is not doing so well. A business will see more customers during this period than any other. However. Whatever the reason. can either be a good thing or a bad thing. these prices may even be below market value. and in what ways this can impact on their reputation. parental protection is no longer necessary in the development of those individuals. advertising discounts on various products or all products will definitely draw in the customers. Most people cannot resist a sale. Offering discounts to customers. when children are yet to mature and comprehend the implications of their actions. A business usually decides to offer discounts to customers for a particular reason. parents should be responsible for any unlawful action that their children take. Many businesses consider offering discounts a good way to increase sales. .
