Vancouver and Beijing both have outstanding urban architecture. In
Vancouver, skyscrapers can be easily seen in downtown. The spectacular
designs fully represent the unique urban style that permeate the city. Also,
the ancient and modern catholic churches serve the multi-cultural masses
that flock to this contemporary port of call. Similarly, Beijing has high-
rises throughout the city, stretching for several kilometres. Since Beijing is
the capital city in China embassies also dot the city core, playing host to
visitors from around the world. Therfore, both cities entertain and house
masses from many different locales, making Vancouver and Beijing central
points of destination for travelling or living.
Cause and Effect:
Athletes have become "sports icons" which every child wants to
become. The ambition to win and become famous is fostered from a very
young age as Nike professes, "You do not win silver you lose gold." The need
to win at all costs builds the ambition to achieve or garner the adulation of
sports fans. The fans then prop up our fear of losing, delving the athlete into
a cyclical path of needing to win and fearing of loss. Ultimately, this fear and
ambition cause athletes to take performance enhancing drugs.
Courage is the quality of being brave when facing something that is
dangerous. For example, a soldier who goes into battle shows courage.
When soldiers go into battle, soldiers face the distinct possibility of death.
Bullets and grenades pose danger for combatants because both weapons kill
or maim. Soldiers know that with every step in hostile territories, enemies
are shooting bullets and throwing grenades with the sole aim of killing. In
war, soldiers and enemies alike don’t shoot bullets to bruise or simply hurt
their counterparts. Therefore, despite knowing that death is a possible
outcome, soldiers show courage despite facing death in battle.
