Wiki Assignment 4: Reading and commenting (20 Points)

Due: MWF class: 12/03, TT class: 12/04


Read and Comment on 5 articles on the wiki

Add links to your personal page in this section + add a comment / reflection on each page you have read (what surprised you? What did you learn?)

  1. Negative Effects of Sleep Deprivation-  This article has alot of very important information. It makes me realize that I need to eat earlier in the day so I can get the maxim amount of sleep that my body needs.
  2. Alcohol consumption-  I really enjoyed reading this article. It really makes me think about how bad alcohol really does mess up your body, not only short term but also long term. Its not worth it for it to mess your body up that bad.
  3. Worst Franshise Breakfasts Ever-  I thought it was a very interesting article. For sure need to change some of my choices at those resturants.
  4. Nicotine and its effect on the body-  It was a well written article. The video was great and showed me exactly what nicotine does to your body and lungs.
  5. Benefits of Muscular Strength- This was a well written article. I knew it was good to lift weights but didnt really know how important it was for girls.
