perfume, handbags, clothing, pirated movies, music, and software, drugs such as marijuana, alcohol, and tobacco (Economy Watch, 2010). 2 People can be deterred from doing business on the black market by “the easing of legal restrictions and by increasing the availability of goods” (Economy Watch, 2010). An excellent example of a black market item is the market of bootlegged movies and music. I performed an internet search on this topic and was surprised to find how effortless it is to watch new movies illegally on the computer. A website 3 that offers live streaming of these illegal movies is called Solar Movie. There are numerous movies and television shows available to watch such as: The Amazing Spiderman, The Campaign, Disney’s Brave, as well as many more. This particular site seems to take a greater risk that most sellers in the black market because he or she is not charging a fee to watch these movies, therefore, the loss would be even greater should they be captured and arrested. http://www.solarmovie.eu/ Leviticus 19:11 says: “You shall not steal; you shall not deal falsely; you shall not lie to one another” (Holy Bible, ESV). This instruction seems perfectly clear to me. We remember the commandments that God gave us through Moses. God did not intend for us to take things from one another or to cheat at anything. We should do everything as it were for God himself. Would we steal from God? Would we steal for God? We certainly should not. He commanded us to do the opposite. We are to help those around us in need. 1 Retrieved from http://www.economywatch.com/market/market-types/black-market.html. 2 Retrieved from http://www.economywatch.com/market/market-types/black-market.html . 3 Retrieved from http://www.solarmovie.eu/

    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.
