    YOUTH CULTURE

    in Social Networking

    Examples of Youth Culture


    The term "youth culture" refers to the ways that teenagers conduct their lives. Youth culture can pertain to interests, styles, behaviors, music, beliefs, vocabulary, clothes, sports and dating. The concept behind youth culture is that adolescents are a subculture with norms, mores, behaviors and values that differ from the main culture of older generations within society.


    Commonly-used Youth Culture Examples


    ·         In the 1960's the wearing of clothes that indicated freedom


    ·         Following of music groups that perform music that speaks to the issues teenagers perceive themselves enduring at the time such as Nirvana in the 1990's and The Beatles in the 1960's


    ·         Hairstyles that exhibit a lack of conformity such as brightly colored hair, spiked hair, shaved heads


    ·         Behavior that is contrary to what is perceived to be accepted and expected by parents such as drinking, smoking, using drugs


    ·         Language usage that is bold in order to set themselves apart such as either excessive cursing or a usage of esoteric “cool” buzz words


    ·         Behaviors such as cutting school or low grade criminal activity in order to assert independence and non-conformity

    Climate Action with Russell Greene

    in Politics Progressive

    Russell is joined by activist, author, speaker, Ted Glick.  


    Ted Glick has devoted over 45 years of his life to the progressive social change movement. After a year of student activism as a sophomore at Grinnell College in Iowa, he left college in 1969 to work full time against the Vietnam War. As a Selective Service draft resister, he spent 11 months in prison.


    For the last ten years Ted has played a national leadership role in the effort to stabilize our climate and for a renewable energy revolution. He was a co-founder in 2004 of the Climate Crisis Coalition and in 2005 coordinated the USA Join the World effort leading up to December 3rd actions during the United Nations Climate Change conference in Montreal.


    Since the mid-70s, Ted has been actively involved in community organizing efforts around environmental, tenant rights, community development and racial justice issues in Brooklyn, N.Y. and northern New Jersey. On a national scale he has been a leader in coalition-building and independent politics efforts. From 1995 to 2005, he was the National Coordinator of the Independent Progressive Politics Network, with which he continues to work. He is the coordinator of the Essex/Passaic Green Party.


    Over the years, Ted’s commitment to social justice has led him to partake in 20 extended fasts, six of which were for more than a month, including the Climate Emergency Fast in the fall of 2007 and two fasts in 2009.


    His prolific writing on the movement to which he devotes his life includes his 2000 book, “Future Hope: A Winning Strategy for a Just Society,” and his column, “Future Hope,” which has been distributed nationally since 2000. In late 2009 he finished a book manuscript, “Love Refuses to Quit: Climate Change and Social Change in the 21st Century.”

    in Entertainment

    I am going to read a small article I have never read and we will discuss Michigans economic climate. From what I see, to what I am told around me.


    Also I am going to discuss how we are lied to about many other countries and that the truth is not even allowed on the airways barely for us to know the truth about other places and what it is like to live there economically.


    I will do my best to keep my observations within my own state.

    MOBILIZING AGAINST CLIMATE CHANGE WITH MARGARET KLEIN SALAMON

    in Politics

    With average global temperatures continuing to set records almost annually, more Americans are admitting the reality of climate change, but are they admitting how serious it is and how quickly we need to act? Denial comes in many forms, and each of them requires a unique approach. To understand how to break through the denial of people who admit that global climate change exists but who want to believe there are good reasons to do nothing about it, we need to call in a psychotherapist.

    In this episode, we talk to Margaret Klein Salamon, clinical psychologist who writes at The Climate Psychologist and who founded and is Director of TheClimateMobilization. The topic is how do we get people to understand the urgency of mobilizing to fight climate change and how to organize and use the Pledge to Mobilize campaign to compel Congress to act.

    This show will be rebroadcast on March 28 at 9 AM PST/ 12 PM EST on the Star Com Radio Network.

    Take Back America for the People is an educational nonprofit whose mission is to explain the true costs of corporate control of the US government.
