PennLive Op-Ed: "Being a Special Olympics volunteer teaches lessons on sportsmanship, trying our best: Carolyn Phillips"

PennLive Op-Ed: "Being a Special Olympics volunteer teaches lessons on sportsmanship, trying our best: Carolyn Phillips"

By Carolyn Phillips, a junior at Pace University who is originally from the Mechanicsburg area.

"Let me win. But if I cannot win, let me be brave in the attempt" was pledged by athletes at the first Special Olympics World Games in 1968, and that same oath was taken 47 years later in Los Angeles last month. The only difference was that this time I was there to hear it. I volunteered at the Special Olympics World Games, the biggest sporting and humanitarian event in the world in 2015.

The week started July 25 with the opening ceremony at the L.A. Memorial Coliseum (where the 1932 and 1984 Olympic opening ceremonies were held). It was a night filled with motivational stories from athletes about the gifts Special Olympics has given them, songs written just for the Games, and the end to the transnational Torch Run, which started in Athens, Greece, and ended in Los Angeles. It was a beautiful moment. I was able to see the torchbearers run the Flame of Hope in New York City, and I saw the torchbearers light the cauldron to start the Games. It signified hope for the World Games and for all individuals with disabilities throughout the world.

Daily News: "Stocks rally, then plunge in last hour"

. . . "It's been crazy," said Robert Chersi, a professor of finance and economics at Pace University's Lubin School of Business and a former CFO of Fidelity Investments.

"We haven't had a change of more than 3% in any given day in months, and then suddenly there have been these big swings intraday and end of day," Chersi told the Daily News. "Is it all China-related? It's too short a period to know what's really driving it."

San Jose Mercury News: "Instagram making you sad? Blame the Kardashians"

San Jose Mercury News: "Instagram making you sad? Blame the Kardashians"

Shira Hecht keeps up with all her friends on Instagram, but she still hasn't met most of the 896 people she follows.

 
 

You might recognize some: January Jones, Lindsay Lohan, Nicki Minaj, Justin Timberlake, Gisele Bündchen, James Franco, Azealia Banks, Lena Dunham, Kendrick Lamar, Mindy Kaling, Reese Witherspoon, Channing Tatum, Scarlett Johansson, Giorgio Moroder, Taylor Swift and Robert Downey Jr.

 
 

"And all the Kardashians, obviously," Hecht said. "I guess that's kind of the point of Instagram."

 
 

It could also be making some of its 300 million users sad, according to a recent psychological study that examined the emotional toll of obsessing over the photo-sharing social network and following too many strangers.

 
 

"There is growing evidence that following strangers on (social networks) and comparing oneself to others have important implications for well-being," said the study published in the May edition of Cyberpsychology, Behavior and Social Networking.

 
 

As more people spend their time on Internet social media networks, micro-blogs and text-messaging platforms, "there's a real surge of studies trying to understand the impacts," said study co-author Leora Trub, an assistant professor of psychology at Pace University, in an interview.
