The nature versus nurture debate is about the roles of innate quality or genetic inheritance versus personal experience or environmental factors. This notion is part of the fundamental themes in psychology that is known as heredity and environment (Wayne Weiten & Doug McCann, 2013). Theorists have argued about personal traits and abilities and their connection with nature and nurture. Some theorists believe that personality traits and skills are governed by genetic predisposition. However, environmental factors play an important role to create and develop some skills such as athletic. Some scientists seek to believe that some abstract traits that contribute to athletic ability and performance are inherited or encoded in a person’s DNA. They follow the nurture theory and illustrate the notion by twin studies, ethnic studies and biology. They believe that some key factors that contribute to success are height and other features of body build in certain sports. For instance, based on a twin study that illustrates genetic influences on physical activity in young adults genetic factors contribute significantly to physical activity. “They estimated sport activity %41. ” (Mustelin, Joutsi, Latvala, Pietilainen, Rissanen, Kaprio, 2009,p.1) .It is crucial to note that they didn’t consider the environmental factors and athlete’s hard work behind their success. On the other hand, experience and environment play a crucial role; some abilities are learned and are influenced by family and cultural environment. They developed over time in response to the experience and achievements .For instance; another study examined a group of athletes and the key factors behind their success. The selected study used a holistic ecological approach .It illustrated the factors by focusing on environment’s components, structures and elements that contributed to environments success. The research study focused on a successful sailing team consisted of top athletes, administrated and coaches in various situations such as meetings, training times and competitions. They also did research on individual athlete to discover the central challenges that are involved in talent development. This study relates the environmental factors and their influence to athletic through crucial components such as family, school, related teams,…

DEVELOPMENTS OF WOMEN
For American women, this battle began centuries ago in the mid 1800’s, at a tea party in
Seneca Falls, NY., when a conversation between a group of five young women, including a
young wife and mother by the name of Elizabeth Cady Stanton, turned to a discussion over the
situation of women in the United States and in less than a week’s time…
The first Olympic games where women were allowed to play were in 1900 summer Olympics, 4 years after the first formal Olympic games took place. Even though women were allowed to play at that time many countries just had only male delegations. This discrepancy, comes from a long time ago. Traditionally men have always been able to play sports, they were encouraged to be athletes because that made them fit and healthy. On the other hand, women has always been seen as inferior to man. As long as women’s…
“Roughly 75% of The Simpsons episodes are about Homer or Bart. That leaves about 25% for Marge, Lisa, Maggie, and every other character on the The Simpsons. What does that have to do with art history, and particularly the history of women artists?
Priority for men over women has been an ever-present issue in not only the American culture but also the world as well. When it was brought to my attention that during The Simpsons Homer and Bart are the focal point of seventy-five percent of the show while…

Lucy goes on to state in her
essay that many lesbians who do not practice S/M can get “offended by the language
of S/M” (Lucy 31). And that these anti S/M feminists have accused her of being a
“rapist, brutalizer, and maleidentified oppressor of battered women” (Lucy 31). But this
is due to their lack of knowledge regarding S/M. They do not understand that S/M seeks
to open each partner up as much as possible. S/M helps to develop a trust much
stronger than any other sexual act. Lucy states that S/M is used “to turn each other on…

Description of the study
We are interested in evaluating the effects of capsaicinoid ingestion (the active ingredient in hot peppers) on human metabolism and measures of cardiovascular physiology. There is evidence to suggest that capsaicinoid ingestion may alter fat metabolism and lead to changes in body composition and physical performance during exercise, through a shift in the use of fat as an energy supply.
This study is divided into two distinct phases, of which…
