There are a great number of players to consider when picking for your fantasy leagues, but these few players you won’t find many picking right away, and hold a lot of potential for great statistics. Luis Perdomo, a pitcher of the Padres has looked pretty solid. No one has bat a home run off of him as of April 7. Ben Gamel an Out Fielder of the Mariners is batting pretty well with a .373 average adding on to that two home runs and eleven RBIs.

Female Actresses: The glue of the Industry

Female Actresses: The glue of the Industry

 

Over the years, woman have had to fight for everything that men are just expected to get. Our careers must be earned and fought for, and it’s not only our careers; but we also have to fight to have our opinions heard. Men take us for granted and expect that they know more than us, but in this day and age women are definitely moving up in the world and making changes. Women are now defining the film industry, and taking the lead. The two actresses in which I chose to write this article about are Kate Winslet sexy self, and Sofia Vergara.

Kate Winslet was a part of the iconic film Titanic where she played Rose. The reason this is so important to women everywhere is because this film was based in the early 1900’s where women had no voice and no choice in how their life went or who they could marry. Kate Winslet has always been strong minded, and has always fought for equality. She makes it a priority to speak for others and to make a change in this world. Winslet in a very influential actress. She inspires me to always stand strong for what I believe in, to never back down because I am a woman.

Then you have, Sofia Vergara hot Latina actress who is well known for her role in many movies, but what she is best well known for is her Role as Gloria on Modern Family. She is a great comedian and can bring a smile to anyone’s face. The thing I love about her is that even though at times, she struggles with her speech because of her thick accent, she is still proud of her roots. Sofia knows how to hold her head strong and to get what she wants, she is not afraid to be who she is in an industry that ties to mold people. She inspires those to not let their own struggles define them.
