A couple of topics I have been thinking of my annotated bibliography have been: The banning of high school football, society’s view on body image and their influence on eating disorders and the decline of the tobacco industry. As for the banning of high school football, I chose this because I think that it would be silly to try and ban high school football because if you’re worried that it is too dangerous, then don’t let your kid play. There has been a lot of controversy over it especially because they are even thinking of setting new rules for the NFL and how they play the game. Football is a rough sport and if you can’t handle it or aren’t willing to accept the risk that come with it then you shouldn’t play. Even with the narrow date range, this issue is pretty recent so it shouldn’t be hard at all to find resources for it. As for my resources I would use statistics of kids that play high school football versus the ones that ended up with severe injuries due to football. I could break down the injuries based on what they are like, concussions, muscle tears, broken bones, sprains and strains. Then you have to put into perspective, how many kids with heart conditions or things like asthma play football thus putting them in more danger. For society’s view on body images and how it correlates with eating disorders, honestly I don’t know how I would really find resources for the but it has always been a topic I am passionate about and would like to do more research on to see if there is statistical information or information that proves that our perception of a “perfect body image” is turning into a problem and causing added pressure on girls to look “perfect” and that they are developing eating disorders and self-harming because of the way they think they should looks versus how they actually look. I think overall I could find way more information on the decline of the tobacco industry. Of course people are always going to smoke so they won’t go away completely but there has been a drastic decline since people are becoming more informed and knowledgeable about the effects of smoking cigarettes. With the decline of the industry that also affects tobacco farmers and I would like to see what I find there since we do live in North Carolina with a big tobacco growing state. I don't really have any questions about the library because I go there often.
