In the same year it is estimated that there are 1. Eighty-four percent of these youths are found in developing countries National Youth Commission, In Asian region contained Interestingly, according to national census, the age structure of Philippine population continues to be young Census of Population, Report No.
These younger members of the population are considered as youth by the United Nations. Now, there are three general reasons for studying this younger age group Fornas, First, is social and political reason. The youth are the bearers of traditions, customs, and cultural heritage Kanjanapan, Members of this age group would eventually assume the responsibilities of the future generations.
They represent the wave of the future Otto and Otto, Six years from now and onwards this group of young people will assume the full adult roles and responsibilities.
Furthermore these young people will be the pacesetters of the younger generation. As the reference group for the succeeding generations, studying the current culture of this generation could provide significant insights about the future beliefs, values, behaviors, attitudes, and practices of the next generation Otto and Otto, Moreover standing as potential reservoir of human capital knowledge of young people could help the nation invest in the present and reap inestimable profits in the future.
Undoubtedly, youth studies would contribute considerably to overall development planning of the country. Knowledge about youth would also contribute towards better rapport between adult and the younger generation. This has been the major thrust of government and other specialists on youth. It is for this reason that youth studies are experiencing renaissance today in the social sciences Tanakishi, But this thrust often leads to an extreme slogan: what is wrong with the nation is what is wrong with the youth.
As a policy orientation, this approach could easily slip into a form of benevolent paternalism. Youth are targeted as passive recipients of social charity and pre-packaged programs.
The second reason for studying the yout h is the seriousness of some scholars to really engage in and address the life crisis of the youth. Such approach aims at helping the youth go through the difficult processes they are undergoing. Most studies done in this direction are in educational psyc hology. Still, other scholars pursue youth studies because they want to find out what creative experiments youth have done that could possibly be use to improve the country.
Herbert A. Otto and Sara T. This orientation has a danger of romanticizing youth culture by excessively celebrating what is quixotic in youth culture. Most studies done in this direction are found in sociology, anthropology, and cultural studies.
Aside from these reasons, youth study in our country has also an historical dimension. As Loretta M. No less than the national hero of the Philippines, the versatile Dr. Not less important however is the significance of studying youth and their culture in the Information Age. As noted by Michael Tan ; also Tan, Batangan, and Espanola, , an anthropologist, many studies on youth, especially those dealing with sexuality, tend to be moralistic and emotional.
Often these studies subordinate empirical findings for policy analysis —either for political or religious ends. For the present paper the focus is on mass media and its impact on the formation of youth culture. As in other areas of social scientific studies, the study of youth and mass media has a great deal to contribute in advancing multidisciplinary cooperation among social scientists in general.
Unfortunately, today there exists no comprehensive survey of the state of Philippine youth studies in relation to mass media. This is surprising given the large amount of literature in the field, and the inestimable significance of mass media on the formation of youth culture. It is also the hope of the present paper that by providing interested individuals and parties with general knowledge about Filipino youth and media study, they will gain better understanding, not only of theoretical significance, but also more importantly, of the current and future generations of young people.
To facilitate the study, the present paper includes only those studies that cover and include young people within the age bracket 15 to Hence studies on children, adolescence and youth included in this paper overlap. Other studies that deal with young people within the age bracket 15 below and 25 above are therefore not included. As for the temporal dimension of research, the present paper tried to incorporate existing early studies on youth especially if they bear relevant relation to the current youth studies.
But insofar as this paper is not primarily an historical view of the development of youth studies in the Philippines there is no attempt to provide coherent historical trend in Filipino youth studies. Moreover for the present purposes the discussion focuses on the decades of the sixties up to the present. Much earlier studies are invoked and cited simply to provide historical continuity and background.
Furthermore, the present review included both published and unpublished studies both undergraduate and undergraduate theses and dissertations. Inclusion of studies for this paper is determined by three factors: namely, the availability of materials, the quality of the research, and the time frame for this paper. Owing to time constraints, the present paper may have neglected an unknown number of unpublished and published studies —both earlier and recent ones-- from various academic and non-academic institutions.
Be that as it may, the author tried to incorporate as many studies done from other academic and research institutions from various parts of the country as possible. Today the most powerful catalyst for modernizing youth culture is the mass media Lanuza, It is largely responsible for shaping the consumption patterns of youth Casillan-Garcia, ; McCann-Erikson, ; de Seguera, , their dressing styles Estuar, ; de la Torre, , leisure and malling de Fiesta-Mateo, , political involvement Cipres-Ortega, ; Quintos, ; Datiguinoo, , delinquent behavior Ebol and Talag, , and even religion Labayen, Yet the youth are not hapless victims of media consumption Roberts, ; Yujuico, To the contrary, the young are the most sophisticated readers of images and media of any group in society Willis, ; Crisostomo, ; Nava, ; Bennet, The study of Lanuza shows that the modernizing influence on the youth is coming more from the mass media than from the peer group and the school.
Nevertheless it must also be noted that, like any other agent of socialization e. While it carries modernizing currents, yet at the same time, it also promotes traditional Filipino values. Hence studies on youth and values promoted by television would show the propagation of traditional Filipino values such as respect for elders, family solidarity, and reverence for authorities see Concepcion, ; Parungao-Adorable, ; Yujuico, This is interesting if one notes that mass media consumes much of the time youth spend in leisure activities Cheng, ; Torres, ; de Vera, et.
There are also indications that mass media shapes to certain extent the values and behavior of children Pagayon, ; Mateo, ; Concepcion, ; Galindo, This is all the more true considering the diminishing role of parents in the advent of overseas migration and the increasing entry of mothers in the working force Arellano-Carandang, ; McCann-Erikson, Mass media, next to the peer group, becomes a surrogate to parental socialization.
In the process the mass media creates alternative expert system that competes with the traditional authority represented and monopolized by the fa mily, school, and religious authorities Sebald, This new social condition ushers in new cultural sensibilities and practices.
In late modern condition, the spatial links of youth and their various cultures shrink more and more as a result of the time-space compressing technologies.
Distances are compressed, if not annihilated, via text messaging and cellular phones Onate and Sison, Yo uthful solidarity is becoming more virtual rather than intimate and personal i. The virtual character of youthful sociality in the age of late modernity transcends the spatial confines and boundaries of traditional youth subcultures.
Consequently it poses great threat to traditional authorities and disciplinary institutions. Even traditional identities and gender roles that youth readily assume become fluid and volatile Bruckman, ; Wark, ; Turkle, More and more young people are exposed to greater external stimulation and massive information saturation.
Information technology produces youth that are connectivity-driven de Seguera, As a result of this phenomenal development youth culture is now moving beyond the simple tension between modernity and tradition. Now youth culture is being transformed by the new cultural waves of late modernity. It is here that crevices of resistance, or even new forms of conformism, can materialize that might eventually lead to the development of new youth subcultures.
The closest approximation of this emerging subculture is the culture of the cyberkids Lanuza, ; or cyberpunk Wark, Furthermore mass media today, largely though advertising, operates as the major harbinger of late modern culture Smee, In Ma.
Males are depicted as: optimistic, independent, adventurous, and wild. Nevertheless youth themselves object to these values because they perceive these values as not yet prevalent in Philippine society. However some younger audience already perceive the presence of these traits Natividad, In general, most TV commercials portray youth as adventurous, full of insecurities, and susceptible to foreign cultural influences Natividad, Through the procession of information technology, Filipino youth today can have a glimpse and share the culture of the youths from different geographical regions Miller, ; Bennet, The Internet is making communication faster and faster.
Data transfer is a matter of minutes, even seconds. One can chat with another person at the other side of the globe via the modem. An estimated 10, to 20, Filipinos are using the Internet. Three out ten households have access to Internet Buenaventura, It provides encyclopedic resources for youth in all areas of life —from sexual information to intimate relations, from educational information to anime icons, from state-of-the-art products to business information.
This has created an alternative expert system that is now competing with traditional authority figures. However studies so far show that youth use the Internet primarily for emails and chatting Agbayani, ; Bustos, ; Duenas, ; Gargarita, ; Reyes, Interestingly, among gay youth chatting provides a means for establishing sexual relations, and building virtual gay communities Lorenzana, Cyberspace allows young people to experiment with their own identities and re- invent existing ones Alvarez and Valbuena, ; Valdez, Thus, to some extent, it is true to claim that new information technologies empower the youth Abalena, ; Saloma, Exposure to Internet comes mainly from peer influence Abalena, This new form of electronic communication enhances interpersonal relationships Valdez,
This survey will provide information on family planning, One in ten young Filipino women age has begun childbearing: 8 percent are already mothers and another 2 percent are pregnant with their first child according to the results of the National Demographic and Health Survey NDHS. In particular, the findings unveil an increase in facility-based deliveries and in births delivered Empowerment of women is essential for the achievement of sustainable development.

Metrics details. Mental health has emerged as an important public health concern in recent years. With a high proportion of children and adolescents affected by mental disorders, it is important to ensure that they are provided with proper care and treatment. With the goal of sharing the activities and good practices on child and adolescent mental health promotion, care, and treatment in Japan and the Philippines, the National Center for Global Health and Medicine conducted a training program on the promotion of mental health focused on treatment and care in Japan and the Philippines in September and November The training program comprised of a series of lectures, site visits, and round table discussions in Japan and the Philippines. The lectures and site visits focused on the current situation of child and adolescent psychiatry, diagnosis of childhood mental disorders, abuse, health financing for mental disorders, pharmacotherapy, psychotherapy, and disaster child psychiatry in both countries. Round table discussions provided an opportunity to explore the similarities and differences between the two countries in terms of the themes discussed during the lectures.

Там, за ней, его обратный билет. Остается только заполнить. Беккер снова вздохнул, решительно подошел к двери и громко постучал. Пора переходить к решительным действиям. Немец рывком открыл дверь и собрался было закричать, но Беккер его опередил. Помахав карточкой теннисного клуба Мериленда, он рявкнул: - Полиция. После чего вошел в номер и включил свет.
Ей показалось, что столь своевременная кончина Танкадо решила все проблемы. - Коммандер, - сказала она, - если власти говорят, что он умер от сердечного приступа, это значит, мы к его смерти не причастны. Его партнер поймет, что АНБ не несет за нее ответственности. - Не несет ответственности? - Глаза Стратмора расширились от изумления. - Некто шантажирует АНБ и через несколько дней умирает - и мы не несем ответственности. Готов поспорить на любую сумму, что у партнера Танкадо будет иное мнение. Что бы ни произошло на самом деле, мы все равно выглядим виновными.
Ты же всегда стремился к большей ответственности. Вот. Он печально на нее посмотрел. - Мидж… у меня нет никакой жизни. Она постучала пальцем по кипе документов: - Вот твоя жизнь, Чед Бринкерхофф. - Но, посмотрев на него, смягчилась.
