==Unrealistic role models== Many commercials and movie stars make us regular people look bad, because we are not blonde, stick thin or have abs. But you must know that they can't eat like we can:) Just be happy with yourself and be grateful that everything you do isn't under a microscope like their lives are:) Good luck and God Bless:) ==Body image or appearance?== Assuming you are asking whether it is fair for a person to be judged by his (or her) appearance, whether it's fair is a moot point because people DO and WILL judge people by their looks. But that judgment is only an initial one and may be inaccurate. It has been said that you can't judge a book by its cover, and that is certainly true. For books. It is less apropos for people inasmuch as the way a person dresses, grooms himself, and comports himself can provide a glimpse into his personality and perhaps even his character. Is it a fool-proof indicator? No, by no means. I am not sure I understood the question you asked, but let me say this. I'm a media historian, and for several hundred years, the media have been blamed for making people feel bad about themselves. In the days of only newspapers, it was the advertisements that were criticised-- they showed all these expensive goods that the average person could never afford. In the early days of movies, critics said that films were unrealistic and would mislead impressionable young people. Radio was supposed to make people stop talking to each other because they'd all be listening and ignoring everyone else. You get the point. Yes the visual media show pretty boys and pretty girls and nobody I know is that thin or that well dressed. But so what? Are you and I in competition with TV shows? I know I don't look like a movie star, and I know I am not gonna be on American Idol. But does that mean I am a failure? I don't think so. If you believe everything you see on TV, you need to take a quick course in Media Literacy (there are a number of good websites that teach how to analyse and deconstruct the images we see in the mainstream media). Your body image, whatever it may be, is real and could change-- if you're obese, you can learn healthier eating habits, for example. What's on TV or in movies is fantasy and it is whatever you say it is. But it doesn't have to be an example of how you should live your life. I've always resisted the "trends" in fashion because more often than not, they just didn't seem worth the money. I've developed my own style and I'm comfortable with that. When I was a kid, yes I got made fun of, but I managed to adjust to it and overcame my self-doubt to go on to a fairly successful career. It's my opinion that if you believe you are deficient and flawed, you will gather evidence to support that viewpoint. If you are a young adult, you may be getting a lot of peer pressure about your looks, but again, every culture has complained about that, and just because some other kids say negative things, that doesn't mean those things are true. Also, too many adults find that blaming the media is an easy way to deal with the subject of what's wrong in society today. A lot of people, of all ages, feel insecure. I don't think insecurity comes from the media, however-- it's more a matter of your reaction to what you see on TV. If you think you are ugly, those people on TV are just gonna be constant reminders of how bad you feel about yourself. SO, yes in the ideal world it wouldn't matter who's fat or thin or short or tall. What would matter is what kind of a person you are and how you treat others. I still believe that not everyone who is popular is also gorgeous-- some of the most popular people I know are not particularly handsome or beautiful but they've mastered the art of conversation and they have great personalities. They also have a sense of humour, which is very useful in times like these. I don't know if any of this makes any sense, but as I told you, I didn't quite follow your original question. You asked something about misleading and stereotypical images-- again, those images have been around for far too long, and they probably won't go away soon. My own way of dealing with them was to get into media (broadcasting and print, in my case) and work from within to challenge some of those stereotypes. Bottom line: it's up to you to decide what's true about you, and what others say or what TV & film tries to depict shouuldn't be the final word on the subject!

To display an image in a webpage, use the IMG tag. First, you need to make sure that your image is located someplace accessible to the rest of the internet (i.e. on the server.) Then you need to find the address to the image. This is pretty straight forward. You can use the relative path if you'd like. Take that address and assign it to the SRC attribute of the image. Then add an alt attribute to the image, containing a short description of what the image is about. (Otherwise, it won't be technically valid.) <img src="example.jpg" alt="Example Image"> One other note, the generally accepted formats on the web are jpg, gif, and png. If your image is in another format, you should convert it before you begin.
