A New York Legend has died.

George Steinbrenner, the principal owner of the New York Yankees, has passed away.  Steinbrenner suffered a massive heart attack at his home in Tampa and died after being rushed to a local hospital.  He was 80.  “The Boss” hasn’t been seen much in public over the past few years, causing speculation about his health. 

Steinbrenner was born on the Fourth of July in 1930 in Rocky River, Ohio.  He was already a successful shipping magnate when he led a group of businessmen in the purchase of the Yankees in 1973.  Under his ownership, the Yankees made eleven appearances in the World Series, winning seven titles. 

As an owner, Steinbrenner was known for his big spending and his quick trigger when dealing with players and managers.  He hired and fired former Yankee second baseman Billy Martin five separate times alone.  He also was banned from baseball for part of the 90’s after he paid a small-time gambler to try to find dirt on former Yankees outfielder Dave Winfield.  However, Steinbrenner was also known for his community work, which led two local councils to re-name the Yankees training facility in Tampa after him in 2008.

    Gender Roles and Relationships Gender roles and relationships tend to vary according to how men and women relate well with each other inside of a changing society. What are gender roles? Gender pertains to male and female as far as sexual identity is concerned. Gender roles are a set pattern of behavior that men and women tend to engage in on a regular basis. This type of behavior is specified according to role and the type of things that people are doing. For instance, men tend to engage in behaviors that are specified according to their personal characteristics. Women engage in a behavior that pertains to their specified tasks. For example, women are involved in activities that pertain to childcare as well as relationships that deal with family and structure. Men on the other hand, are geared towards dealing with issues that pertains to working relationships. Maintaining a working relationship is going to a specified job that pertains to his interest and his interest alone. An average man works at a job not only to just pay the bills, but his job that he possess is something that he had always wanted to do from the time he was young. Women on the other hand, are educated, intelligent, witty, determined, and computer literate. Women are inclined to become independent and would prefer to deal with their own issues instead of getting involved in relationships at the present time. Women and men are evaluating themselves and their own capabilities. Women with children are inclined to deal specifically with themselves as well as their children alone. They would prefer to stay by themselves and struggle and survive. When it comes to dealing with gender roles and relationships, there are specific behaviors and characteristics that men and women must consider when dealing with a subject like this. For instance, gender as it relates to relationships deal with how men and women are compatible with each other and how well do they relate when it comes to communication. Men and women must be able to understand each other as far as communication is concerned. They must be on the same page as far as dealing with each other when it comes to dealing with children, finances, education, intelligence, family, religion, and endurance. Endurance for example, is being able to tolerate each other’s behavior and habits. Learning how the other communicate and act is a task that is totally different. Men and women must learn how to maintain a decent relationship instead of arguing with each other on a daily basis. A relationship when it comes to gender comes from our personal experiences and these experiences are derived from our upbringing. How we were raised as children has a whole lot to do with how well we relate with the next person. Socialization as a child throughout our entire lifespan as a human being is extremely important. This pertains to how our personality is shaped and how we treat others is based on mood and behavior. Personality itself is a key to having a successful relationship. Understand one thing, your personality, intelligence, behavior, and habits have a whole lot to do with how children and adults adjust inside of a fast pace society. For instance, children tend to drop out of school because of pressures that administrators tend to place on school children as well as adults with children alone. Expectations change from year to year and school requirements are modified on an annual basis in order to prepare children for the future. Parents are having a really hard time trying to adapt and adjust to these societal changes. This also places a strain on relationships. Relationships change based on expectations that society itself provide through structural changes. For example, politics and law are intertwined. Politics and Law shape our society because it is mankind that must adhere to these forever changing laws. Politics and the people that are involved affect us in many ways. Politics and human behavior affect us because it is the majority culture that is running our country. The richest 2% of the population is controlling things financially and the rest are having a hard time trying to catch up. Expectations and relationships vary each time. Expectations in human relationships are changing because people are making wise decisions not to have children and in some cases not to engage in relationships with others. Men and women alike are making choices and this is based on finances as well as human behavior itself. Gender roles vary according to men and women and the roles that they portray inside of a fast changing society. Sincerely, Anthony Hopkins Dayton, Ohio
