2005). Cultural theory/behavioural theory suggests that the lower social classes prefer less healthy lifestyles such as alcohol consumption, obesity and smoking, infrequent exercise, unhealthy diet these are independent variables to that of intervening variables between social structures. As a result there is an increases in the risk of diseases like lung cancer, heart disease, obesity and diabetes. More education is needed in this area in schools and colleges to promote good health and healthy
Part Two The mutual disengagement and withdrawal between the older adult and society are one of the sociological theories of aging; the disengagement theory (Touhy, Jett, Boscart, & McCleary, 2012, p. 93). This theory does not apply to Gurdeep’s life as she moved in with her son’s family and constantly interacts with each of them every day. She also volunteers at the gurdwara daily and is still engaged in her spiritual and religious activities helping her increase her social interactions with those other than family. Due to the distance and her age, however, she has lost contact with many of her friends which applies to the disengagement theory where the older adult withdraws from their normal activities and interactions with society. The Activity Theory is linked to successful aging through physical activity, social activity/engagement and the roles an individual plays in their lives in a society (Touhy et al., 2012, p. 93).
Iphigenia is also being exposed to a crowd made up of only men in the painting which only supports that she feels defenseless. Identically, the way Iphigenia’s body is placed on the altar says that she didn’t put herself there, but was tossed with no consideration for her. This fact gained from the painting informs the audience of the painting that she defenseless. To add, the way how she looks immobilized on the altar and unable to have control of her body helps justify she feels broken down. In the painting, you can see a man riding on a donkey flying towards the temple on a cloud.
Sociology has its unique continual fascination in that the social interactions between people never stop. Especially in a group, people tend to become assimilated and take on the behaviors and attitudes of the others even if they are passive. That is, people might not even realize social norms when they reach consensus on how to behave on a specific occasion. As a crucial component of culture, norms are usually ignored. For this reason, ethnomethodology is a practical approach in sociology to uncover social norms by disrupting which people take for granted to see how others react.
The social cognition theory is a psychological model of behavior that was emerged from the work of Albert Bandura. This theory mainly focuses on individual environment and how the environment influences an individual behavior (Denler, Wolters, & Benzon, 2014). Mr. Bandura is very famous for the Bobo Doll experiment. This experiment shows how strong environmental influences are on individual behavior. He demonstrated this by showing how easy it is for children to learn aggression.

In addition, society has developed into a more independently technological lifestyle. Bradbury describes how the social norm is on the basis of people being off the street and at home in their houses. To emphasize the standard of this society, Bradbury allocates the point of being indoors by incorporating it into a conversation between a citizen, who is walking amongst the streets, and the last police officer’s patrolling “… there is any air in your house, you have an air conditioner, Mr. Mead,?” as Mr. Mead tries to explain how he is simply out for a walk enjoying fresh air, the officers question why he was out instead of enjoying a viewing screen “And you have a viewing screen in your house to see with?” (2). In general, this society is on the basis that the social norm is to be out of the streets to keep the demolishment of crime and to have individuals living their lives inside with the aid of their air conditioners and viewing screen. Overall, Bradbury successfully demonstrates how society adapts and changes with the use of technology by integrating it into their daily
This film uses micro- and macrosociology examine schools, malls, and explore the "next big thing" that will catch the attention of their target on determining how society works from a range of topics at different levels of analysis. Based on the film, the Merchants of Cool, it can be seen that the millennial cultural practices are different from how cultural practices were practiced in the past. This can be understood from examining
When digging deeper into this phenomenon, sociologists can provide an important viewpoint regarding how zombie culture reflects, challenges, and perpetuates existing inequalities, particularly in respect to race, class, gender, and sexuality. Understanding the impact of social structure on popular culture taught me that cultural objects have much to tell about social life, values, and ideologies. Although it was difficult to unpack this phenomenon, I loved my topic and had an outstanding experience with this research
Most people have the use of their legs and feet, but these descriptors help relate the importance and value of healthy, strong legs. This stanza further makes is clear that people who are “fatigue(d) often “trudge” forward toward a “distant rest” as though in a death-like march- if they are demoralized and desensitized to the conditions around them. All too often the “distant rest” seems hopeless, and when people are hopeless they are often unprepared to face the unexpected and awaiting events of their future. There is a sense of despondency and quitting when we read that they “turned their backs” away from “the haunting flares.” The question arises
