Losing to win (Problem Solution)

The video “Losing to win” is about a group of girls who struggle in life from disorders, drugs, and anger issues. The girls have to leave their original schools and go to Carroll Academy, where they have to play basketball. Although there is a basketball team the basketball team has lost 218 games straight. This might not seem like too big of a problem but for the lady jags it causes discouragement, frustration, and embarrassment. Above all, the girls triumphed by becoming really close and were motivated by the coaches to succeed in life. Also they were finally able to trust others in life and worked together to get better and overcome adversities. Overall, the lady jags did not win a game but won something more important in life that they didn’t expect, friendship.

Jackie Robinson and the MLB (Cause and Effect)

When Mr. Rickey was a college coach he dealt with issues because one of his players was black, the kid was so upset he tried to scratch the black out of him. Many years later the noble Mr. Rickey was planning on trying the “Noble Experiment.” His goal was to have the first black come and play in the MLB. First he spent a long time searching for someone who was a good baseball player, and strong mentally and physically. Next Mr. Rickey found his answer; Jackie Robinson. At first Jackie Robinson wasn’t really interested in the task, but eventually became fond of the idea. Jackie Robinson was a great ballplayer, but still endured a lot of racist comments because he was black. Finally people began to realize that whites and blacks could do the same things and soon the MLB didn’t have a racial barrier. Jackie Robinson was an inspiration on and off the field of baseball.
