To love and to hate Tom Brady

Take 2 different takes on Tom Brady: Ode to Tom Brady 
By David Vallecillo

With the Super Bowl kicking off next Sunday, the Atlanta Falcons face a team more than just the New England Patriots; they play against the man, the myth, and an NFL legend, Tom Brady. Fans of the games can once again take the opportunity to see the greatest quarterback of all time take the field on the game’s grandest stage.
Making his 6th Super Bowl appearance, it is no question that Tom Brady is considered a Hall of Fame Quarterback after winning the Super Bowl four times and was honored MVP three times. His efficiency in passing, effective leadership on the field, and the fact that the Patriots are always relevant in the NFL make it easier for a novice fan to root for the athlete that always wins.
Tom Brady can be appreciated as a football star, but off the field he is a man that recognizes good deeds after rewarding an Elementary school football team season tickets with field passes for standing up to bullies.
If exhilarating fans on the football field weren’t enough, Tom Brady also made you laugh after his appearance in a humorous scene in the movie “Ted 2”.
So as you're watching the super bowl next weekend and don’t know which team to root for, you can observe history in the making along with admiring the kind of quarterback and person Tom Brady is.

Baker’s cycling career brought him from his home in South Africa to America, and once in the United States, the brand Oakley steered him towards working with motorcycles.             Baker also explained that his elite training program did not come together quickly. According to the celebrity trainer, “The [conditioning and training] developed over time… It took 17 years to create the full training package”. …

“A Diagnosis Isn’t the End.”
At TEDxLSSC this past weekend, Army veteran and full-time LSSC student, James Thomas Simons struck the audience with the gravity of mental health in his speech  “It’s time to change the way we think (and talk) about mental health.” From talking about Simon’s experiences with his mental health to sharing how 2/3 of the population never seek help, he inspires the audience by bringing positive awareness to mental health and those who suffer from its various forms. Even though he “[believed] that [mental illness] would label [him] as a failure,” he sought help and support. Despite his thoughts that post-traumatic stress disorder would make people see him as “a weapon with the safety broken,” Simons encourages others that it isn’t the end- that a diagnosis isn’t the final verdict.              Mental…
