Teen Mom 2/OG and 16 and Pregnant are television shows broadcasted nationally about the lives of teenage mothers and the struggles they may face. Six pregnant teenagers allowed MTV to film their pregnancies hoping to encourage the young viewers to wait to start their families. After four years of being on television, teen pregnancy rates have dropped drastically. From 2009-2010, the rates had dropped nine percent reaching a historic low of 34.3 births per 1,000 women between the ages of 15-19. This rate is higher than any other developed country, where typical rates of teen childbearing are more often in the range of 5 to 10 births per 1,000 girls in this age group and it is said that four out of five teenagers pregnancies are unintentional. Since 16 and Pregnant was first aired in the summer of 2009, it is tempting to wonder whether or not the show was responsible for this drop in teen pregnancy. This rate dropped faster in area where teenagers were watching more MTV programming.

When he walked into the New York clubhouse, he was still wearing his Cincinnati Reds socks as attendants were sewing his name on the back of his Mets uniform. Mesoraco had described his experience as surreal.

The National Football League is looking to make changes and adjustments to alignment and formation requirements in hopes of fixing the most dangerous play of the game. “There’s no question that this is not about getting the kickoff out of the game, it’s about enhancing it.” said Troy Vincent, the leagues executive vice president. Statistics show that concussions were five times more likely to occur at kickoff time in 2017. In 2017, only forty percent of kickoffs were returned. Green Bay Packers president and CEO Mark Murphy had said this specific play is still too dangerous even with its reduction in frequency and will be taken out if it is not made safer.
