Forever Young

by Marcel Danesi, Forever Young Books available in Docs, PDF, EPUB, Mobi, Textbook, Kindle Format. Download Forever Young book, The excessive worship of adolescence and its social empowerment by adult institutions is the deeply rooted cause of a serious cultural malaise. So argues semiotician Marcel Danesi in Forever Young, an unforgiving and controversial look at modern culture's incessant drive to create a 'teen-aging' of adult life. Written for the general reader and based on five year's worth of interviews with over 200 adolescents and their parents, Danesi begins by asserting that one of the early causes of this crystallization of adolescence as an age category can be traced back to theories of psychology at the turn of the twentieth century. Since then, the psychological view of adolescence as a stressful period of adjustment has become a self-fulfilling prophecy. This, in tandem with the devaluation of the family by the media and society at large, has led to a maturity gap - a fissure in family dynamics that is eagerly and ably exploited by the mass media. Unlike many academic digressions into the malaise of modern culture, Forever Young provides concrete answers on how the 'forever young syndrome' can be addressed. One solution is to dispel the myth that experts and professionals are the people best equipped to give advice on raising children. The second is to recognize the value of family, in all its different combinations, as the primary institution of child-rearing. The third is to challenge the pervasive notion that teen culture is a sophisticated endeavour - that, for example, pop music can claim to have produced some of the best musical art in the world, surpassing Mozart or Bach. By laying bare the misguided tenets that have brought about, and continue to promote, a 'forever young' mentality, Marcel Danesi demonstrates that the 'teen-aging' of culture has come about because it is, simply put, good for business. Teen tastes have achieved cultural supremacy because the western economic system requires a conformist and easily manipulated market, and has thus joined forces with the media-entertainment oligarchy to promote a deterministic 'forever young' market.

Forever Young

by Lucian Boia, Forever Young Books available in Docs, PDF, EPUB, Mobi, Textbook, Kindle Format. Download Forever Young book, Forever Young offers a wide-ranging survey of the notion of longevity, from antiquity to the present. The author looks at the many manifestations of one of humanity’s most powerful dreams: the prolongation of life and youth with immortality as a final objective. Using a variety of sources – religion, folk traditions, science, literature and art – the book shows on the one hand the persistence of the human spirit (the desire for longevity is revealed as an extremely stable archetype throughout history) and on the other, the innovations specific to each period or culture due to the progress of science and differing ideologies and attitudes. Nowadays, prolonging life and youth has become a major goal of society due to a combination of several factors: the spectacular increase in life expectancy; the advances of science and especially genetics; and, finally, the decline of religious belief in life after death, emphasizing the only remaining certainty – corporeal life. The author, a specialist in mythology and imagination, approaches his subject in an accessible and engaging way.

Forever Young

by Chris Richards, Forever Young Books available in Docs, PDF, EPUB, Mobi, Textbook, Kindle Format. Download Forever Young book, This book explores 'young adult' fictions - stories about being young, staying young and sometimes never wanting to grow up. Looking at controversial novels by Francesca Lia Block, at sex and 'race' in Buffy the Vampire Slayer, and at the online world of fans and censors, Chris Richards argues that attempts to classify and regulate what counts as 'young adult' have failed, and shows how youth - as intense, exciting and tormented - draws audiences unconstrained by age. Throughout the book, the narratives of life as lived by the young emerge as the stuff of the 'self' - made and remade in reading, watching and listening. Fascinating and accessible, Forever Young will be of particular interest to students and teachers concerned with contemporary popular culture in cultural, media, literature and education studies courses.

Almost your whole body consists of protein. A portion of this vital energy source is lost every day and needs to be replenished. Since meats and sausages are often combined with fat, sources of protein without fat such as fish, poultry, cottage cheese, and beans are preferable. Since it's not always possible to eat the right food sources, a quality protein powder in combination with fresh fruits and vegetables can be a great supplement to a healthy diet. Try the recipes here and create a 'power' week of great-tasting fitness drinks. The fat will begin to melt away, and in its place, you'll discover increased vitality.

The Forever Young Diet And Lifestyle

by James H. O'Keefe, The Forever Young Diet And Lifestyle Books available in Docs, PDF, EPUB, Mobi, Textbook, Kindle Format. Download The Forever Young Diet And Lifestyle book, The Forever Young program is the scientifically based plan that will bring your life back into synch with your genetic identity, restoring your youthful vigor and glow, while at the same time optimizing your health, quality of life, and longevity." --James O'Keefe, MD and Joan O'Keefe, RD In a field plagued by "miracle" diets and sketchy information, The Forever Young Diet and Lifestyle presents a commonsense plan that improves satiety; promotes wholesome, fresh, and easily obtained foods; and reinforces a rational, holistic, mind-body approach to diet and lifestyle. The program is a complete package that can help provide a lifetime of energy and good health. Most of our health problems today result from a mismatch between the world we are designed for and the very different one in which we live. The modern American leading a sedentary lifestyle of automobiles, couches, televisions, computers, and junk food is like a fish out of water. Our genes have changed minimally over the past few thousand years, yet our diets and lifestyles have become progressively more divergent from those of our ancient ancestors. The Forever Young Diet and Lifestyle outlines the path back to our natural needs and rhythms. Firmly grounded in the medically proven Hunter-Gatherer diet, the plan easily promotes weight loss, vastly improves energy levels, enhances sleep and concentration, and restores the natural youthful glow we should have at any age. Cardiologist James O'Keefe and his wife, Joan, a registered dietitian, provide a down-to-earth, sensible program that's both satisfying and easy to follow.

Download Forever Young book, What it takes to save the world from extinction. 200 years from now, the world, in the grip of global warming, is eerily like ours, only much worse. The ultra-rich, a.k.a. the One Percenters, live in protected areas while the rest of humanity faces pollution, plagues and early death. The One Percenters are the only ones who can afford all the advances of technology, in particular the exclusive Age Prevention Program (APP) that lets them live their whole life span looking "forever young" till the day they drop dead. Three friends struggling for survival, Lizzie, a young California golf champion, Jamie, an investigative journalist for the World and US Post and Alice, a lovely Swiss nurse, try to enter the APP. Meanwhile Lizzie's uncle, a determined and ruthless 99 Percenter retired from the military, lurks around, hell-bent on carving a place for himself in the APP. Only two options are open to escape extinction: one, fly to another planet a thousand light years away, pristine and green much like Earth before industrialization - but the so-called “Immortality Trip” is reserved to One Percenters; the other, retreat to Antarctica, the last virgin continent - but it is in the hands of Gary Trude XIII, a Hitlerian-style autocrat. Can Lizzie, Jamie and Alice escape from Gary Trude and join the Immortality Trip? NOTE TO THE READER: This book follows the model of serialized novels and is digitally published in four separate parts, each self-standing. It is however preferable to read them in order and the present book is an omnibus edition that includes all four parts. PART ONE, "Gateway to Forever", explores the costly APP and what it means to belong to it...or remain outside.

When he spots the slim, blond-haired, blue eyed young man, pushing a line of shopping carts across a parking lot, Colt knows instantly they’re destined for each other.

Kennedy, Jr., from his closest friend with 16 pages of color photos From the iconic image of a little boy saluting his father’s casket to his tragic death at age thirty- eight, John F. Kennedy, Jr., was never far from the public eye. Now the friend who John was flying to see the night he died reveals the private man behind the public myth. Billy and John shared summers in Hyannisport and formed a bond in the Kennedy compound that lasted well into adulthood. With Forever Young, Noonan offers a unique glimpse into the private life of his boyhood friend—his courtship with Carolyn, his relationship with his mother, Jackie, and his struggle with being the son of a great man he hardly remembered. Affectionate yet candid, Noonan’s deeply personal memoir ultimately emerges as the definitive portrait of the son of Camelot.
