Aliyaapon Jiratanatiteenun, Chiyomi Mizutani, Saori Kitaguchi, Tetsuya Sato, Kanji Kajiwara
Advances in Applied Sociology (AASoci) , 2012, DOI: 10.4236/aasoci.2012.24034
Abstract: The purpose of this study is to elucidate a role of the street fashion as a habitual communication tool for the youth through the comparative study on the habitual behavior of the Japanese and Thai youths. The questionnaires concerning the fashion behavior were submitted to a total of 363 female college students in Japan and Thailand in 2011. The results revealed the significant differences in fashion behavior between the two countries, which were affected by the climate, personal income, and traditional lifestyle. The Japanese youths care much about their personal surroundings and adapt fashion as a communication tool for social networking to be accepted in a group. The Thai youths care less about fashion and seek for other tools for social networking. By the time of the survey, the Japanese street fashion has been already matured as a communication tool with a variety of expression ways and is transfiguring spontaneously by repeated diversification and integration of several fashion elements. On the other hand, Thai street fashion is in the early stage and has not yet fully developed to affect a way of personal communication. However, the Thai youths have been increasing interest in fashion as confirmed by the increasing popularity of domestic fashion magazines, and provide a potential for Thai street fashion to develop.

Abstract: increasingly, over the past 50 years, young people participate individually and collectively, not only in building the social context and its offerings but in the generation of alternative practices and similarities thereby posing a proactive role in the cultural transformation, as new generations carry the sensitivity and willingness to appropriate, embody and create, allowing practices and discussing emerging phenomena in contemporary youth. understanding that this does not imply a complete break in traditional habits and offers, but an increase -a constant explosion of actions and feelings. this article provides thought on practices of the emerging youth phenomena about redefinition and social transformations that may be evident from these, putting emphasis on cultural practices, technology, the body and the subjective experience as the most significant elements in the dynamics of current youth.

Zanetti, Julia Paiva;
Cadernos Pagu , 2011, DOI: 10.1590/S0104-83332011000100004
Abstract: throughout its history feminism was supported by many young generations, but only very recently young women began to claim knowledge, and opened discussions in specific areas within the youth movement, as black and lesbian feminists have done in previous decades. starting from the life stories of four young feminists in the rio de janeiro metropolitan area, this paper aims to contribute to the understanding of how young people have approached, inserted, and seen them selves within the movement.
El Mito de la Cultura Juvenil
Ramírez Varela,Francisco;
Ultima década , 2008, DOI: 10.4067/S0718-22362008000100005
Abstract: when we began to address youth topics, we ended up describing this social group way beyond the range of ages and biologics, trying to accomodate them with a view to social sciences, which helps us explain the diverse phenomena which occur with youth, and in this way we understand their problems and social acts. normally, these definitions touch the concept of ?youth culture? where different youth manifestations are boxed in. we are now going to review the following pages, not only for value or relevance to the term ?youth culture?, but also to make a revision of some points of view on youth, and the association of the culture. this reflection brings us to the following questions, which we do not intend to answer, but rather reflect upon. does ?youth culture exist??.

Las culturas juveniles: un campo de estudio; breve agenda para la discusión
Reguillo, Rossana;
Revista Brasileira de Educa??o , 2003, DOI: 10.1590/S1413-24782003000200008
Abstract: the present paper aims to discuss ways by which youth cultures have been presented, from cultural point of view. it argues that youth cultures have mobile and multiple senses, incorporating, mixing and inventing symbols and emblems, in a continual movement that makes it difficult to represent them. we firstly build on the assumption that there is a great diversity within the "youth" category, comprising: students, bands, punks, popular protestant religious people, small businessmen, ravers, unemployed people, "traffic dealers", all being children of the modern age with its crisis and disenchantement; secondly, we take into account the complex and highly changeable contemporary context, in which these young people live. the article is organised in three thematic axes: a) analysis of the discourses of those that have produced knowledge about youth; b) discussion of "new" sceneries of youth cultures, as well as its material and symbolic territories; c) perspectives and challenges that the field of studies concerning youth cultures has been posing to social sciences.
Juventude e políticas públicas no Brasil
Sposito, Marília Pontes;Carrano, Paulo César Rodrigues;
Revista Brasileira de Educa??o , 2003, DOI: 10.1590/S1413-24782003000300003
Abstract: the article endeavours to outline a wide-ranging understanding of the paths explored in the last ten years by those initiatives focused on the juvenile segments of brazilian society. based upon a democratic conception of attainment of public policy and on a clear defence of young people as subjects with their own rights, it begins an analysis of policies for youth. to that end, based on some theoretical considerations on the theme of youth, particularly concerning its breadth, it examines the federal actions proposed during the period 1995-2002 and traces some of the paths explored at the municipal level aimed at establishing such policies.
El objeto juventud en la I Conferencia Iberoamericana de Juventud. Argentina
Plesnicar,Lorena Natalia;
Revista Latinoamericana de Ciencias Sociales, Ni?ez y Juventud , 2009,
Abstract: this article analyzes how the youth object was discursively constructed in the i latin american youth conference that was held in madrid in 1987. to approach the document issued on occasion of the conference, it turns to discourse critical analysis (dca), especially to the perspective developed by norman fairclough and ruth wodak. the analysis shows how youth is textually constructed as a generational perspective, how it is enunciated from homogeneity, how the youth problems are referred to in order to present it, later, as a problem; and how the need to give attention to youth is declared. similarly and finally, it shows how to consolidate common actions and how to look for contributions from international entities.
Calorie Restriction the Fountain of Youth  [PDF]

Food and Nutrition Sciences (FNS) , 2012, DOI: 10.4236/fns.2012.311198
Abstract: Calorie restriction (CR) is as close to a real fountain of youth as any known technique is. Caloric restriction known to extend the human lifespan by up to five years has quietly become accepted among leading researchers. Even scientists who are cautious about anti-aging hype say it works. The formula is simple: Eat less. It could add years to your life. In the context of health and longevity, I analyzed data documenting proofs which suggest that the caloric restriction extends life span and retards age-related chronic diseases in a variety of species, including rats, mice, fish, flies, worms, and yeast as well as improve biomarkers of aging in humans. Research has shown that not only does it result in a longer lifespan, but it also lowers blood pressure, oxidative damage, cardiovascular disease, modifies insulin sensitivity, reduces loss of central nervous system cells, strengthens the immune system, lowers cholesterol, diminishes the rate of heart disease, reduces muscle oxygen loss, improves muscle function, reduces free radical damage to body tissue and helps stabilize blood sugar in adult-onset diabetes. Caloric restriction the most widely recognized life span-extending intervention has shown that it does indeed have age-slowing effects in humans like it has been shown to work in animals and Dr. Fontana has already made medical history in studying anti aging effects of caloric restriction.

Research has identified factors (assets) that protect youth from engaging in risk behaviors including alcohol use. Very little research has examined asset/nonuse of alcohol associations by youth gender or determined if asset/nonuse of alcohol associations are influenced by the neighborhood environment. The purpose of the study was to determine if multiple youth assets and neighborhood factors are differentially associated with youth nonuse of alcohol by gender. Method: Five waves of data were collected annually from households (N = 1111) randomly selected to participate in the Youth Asset Study. Seventeen assets and 6 neighborhood factors assessed at waves 1 - 4 were analyzed longitudinally using marginal logistic regression to predict nonuse of alcohol at waves 2 - 5. Results: Sample mean age was 14.3 years, 52% female; 39% white, 28% Hispanic, 23% African-American, and 9% other. Numerous assets were prospec- tively associated with alcohol nonuse for females (12 assets) and males (16 assets). Three assets were significantly more protective from alcohol use for males compared to females. Final modeling indicated that three assets were protective from alcohol use for both genders and that one asset was protective only for males. There were no significant associations between the neighborhood variables and nonuse of alcohol, and the neighborhood variables did not influence the asset/nonuse of alcohol associations. Conclusions: Youth assets appear to protect both genders from future alcohol use but males may benefit even more from asset-building prevention programming. Youth alcohol use and alcohol nonuse/asset associations may not be influenced by the neighborhood environment.
