Madden, Ursula . "Teen pregnancy epidemic hits Memphis high school - Action News 5  - Memphis, Tennessee."  Action News 5 - Memphis, Tennessee - Breaking News,  Weather, Traffic and Sports . N.p., 11 Jan. 2011. Web. 7 Oct. 2011.  < ? redirected=true>. Young females watching this show are indirectly getting the message that teen  parenting is becoming more acceptable in today’s society. Skins "Skins" is a wildly popular and controversial British series about a clique of ferociously  uninhibited and self-absorbed teenagers who do everything they're not supposed to and  regard grownups with complete disdain, with few to no consequences. Naturally, MTV  would like a piece of that. Portrays to teenagers that it is ideally okay to drink, party, partake in drugs, and disobey  adults with little to no consequences Today's teens have easy access to Internet porn, pay-cable sex shows and other  entertainment offerings that scandalize those from earlier generations; MTV isn't alone  in degrading cultural standards. Gives false advertisement to viewers by promoting sex and drugs to young teenagers.  (since that is almost who every watches MTV) so obviously they are going to get the  wrong idea through these ads.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
