In both adverts alcohol is indirectly portrayed by showing us, the viewers the effects it can have on our bodies after a night of binge drinking and therefore convincing the viewers to abstain from returning home in the condition that is portrayed in the advert.
Usually, people follow given orders from authority. Authority can be a work boss, parents, teachers, etc. We are taught to follow orders at a young age so we won’t have issues with obedience in the future. The Milgram Experiment was basically testing how far someone could commit to their obedience before it became too much.

This project investigates how popular culture can affect youth consumption by the example of singer Taylor Swift. Youth consumers that age from 15 to 25 year-old, from the United Nation definition of youth, are the targets of my investigation. Youth identities and experiences have increasing being defined by consumption. They tend to buy products related to the celebrities and influence by the popular culture. Their consumption habits are being influence by media. There is ‘personal economy’ of the youth consumers. The meaning of consumption can change which means youth have their own different meanings when they are purchase the products. In recent years, there are more and more celebrities endorsers involved with the products
Stanford Prison Experiment is a popular experiment among social science researchers. In 1973, a psychologist named Dr. Philip Zimbardo wants to find out what are the factors that cause reported brutalities among guards in American prisons. His aim was to know whether those reported brutalities were because of the personalities of the guards or the prison environment. However, during the experiment, things get muddled unexpectedly. The experiment became controversial since it violates some ethical standards while doing the research.
Music and the certain type of genre can change their mood, but it will not change someone’s behavior and the way they will act towards others. “Those youth who are weak in intelligence, according to Barich, are more likely to take the words of heavy metal music seriously in justifying their delinquent behavior” (Brandl 112). It seems as for those who take the lyrics and its literal meaning behind them and dealing with a life situation that can relate to those words can trigger something in someone, but those with more self-control. Someone with depression will listen to a sad song, and if they constantly did this for numerous of days or weeks, it can likely make it worse on them. This does not mean it causes them to commit any crimes, as the statement made is that it lowers them mentality rather than showing how they act towards
“Health and Behavioral Consequences of Binge Drinking in College” and “Too Many Colleges Are Still in Denial about Alcohol Abuse” by Henry Wechsler, Charles Deutsch, and George Dowdall discuss the same topic: binge drinking in college. Although both of the writings have the topic in common, they are both written differently. “Health and Behavioral Consequences of Binge Drinking in College” is a scientific study on how many students are binge drinkers in college and what consequences rise from that while “Too Many Colleges Are Still in Denial about Alcohol Abuse” is a persuasive essay about what actions need to be taken in order to reduce the amount of binge drinkers in college. Even though essays serve different writing styles, they both deliver
Rap music has negative influences on teenagers and youth lives, as they are drawn to the lifestyle of drugs, sex, and violence, which is contained in the music lyrics and videos. Research has supported this, arguing that exposure for a long time to this music is likely to affect the overall mood, behavior, perceptions, and create fantasies among the youths (Miranda and Claes, 2004). This has had significant influences on their behaviors at school and at home. Parents are concerned, since they are unaware of the lyrics, as the teenagers prefer to download the songs and listen the music through the headphones. Research has proven that popular rap music effects explore the student schoolwork, social interactions, moods, and overall behavior. The
According to the Archives of Pediatrics and Adolescent Medicine nowadays, one in three of these popular songs contain explicit lyrics about drug or alcohol use. Children who like to listen to heavy metal music have greater propensity for substance abuse and other risky behaviors during the age of twelve to eighteen, according to the American Association of Pediatrics. Those lyrics with negative messages tends to encourage teens to violate or antisocial. In a study of more than one thousand four hundred adolescents ages between twelve to seventeen have showed that those who like to listen to the music with sex related lyrics began having sex faster/earlier than those who did not listen to that type of
Alcohol consumption on higher education institutions continues to rise nationally. Cameron University (CU) has been the source of multiple media related stories surrounding alcohol related consumption on campus by underage students. CU must ensure the integrity of the University is not compromised and maintain the highest academic standards and a safe environment for students. Therefore, proposed is a strategic multi-layered collaborative plan inclusive of administrators, community, faculty and students.

If you witnessed a situation where emergency was needed you would take some sort of action to help the person in need, right? ….aid a stranger in need….. Psychology suggests that whether or not someone takes action can depend on the number of people present, this is known as the bystander effect. The bystander effect, or bystander apathy, is defined as a situation in which the presence of others discourages an individual from intervening in an emergency situation.
In the media, alcohol consumption is frequently portrayed as a regular social activity and glorifies both alcohol abuse and underage consumption. These messages are sent through a variety of media platforms such as, television, advertisements (print and digital), and networking websites. The messages being sent to audiences promote and encourage people to partake in such activity. Underage audiences are easily manipulated into believing that what they see in the media, is an accurate representation of social normalities. This is an important topic to examine because the underage drinking culture and alcohol abuse as become a prominent issue in the United States and consequences are deadly. This paper will discuss the use and display of alcohol
In “ What the !#&* Have Values Got To Do With Anything! Young People, Youth Culture And Well-being,” Richard Eckersley, an independent researcher/writer, acknowledges the resent uproar to his past article, in which he mentions the obscenity and violence in today’s music. He aliens this obscenity and violence to have a negative effect on the youth. He mentions the criticism from making those types of remarks. “[They] said I was a boring old fart rut-tutting about a bit of harmless rebellion by young people: just another re-run of the eternal conflict played out between conservative fogies and spirited youth “(Eckersley). He response by addressing that music is a major part of a person’s life and having lude lyrics will impact a youth moral compass

In July 1961 the experiment was started for researching that how long a person can harm another person by obeying an instructor.
The article that I have chosen for my assignment is ‘Young Adults and ‘Binge Drinking’ : A Bakhtinian analysis by Chris Hackley. The article mainly talks about the role of alcohol in the lives of the young adults and the changes in the drinking culture in UK as well as all over the world. I chose this essay mainly because I personally feel that binge drinking and intoxication specially among young adults is a serious issue that needs to be looked upon and should not be taken ‘casually’.
