Subcultures-where do theycome from and what they really are? When we say subcultures we probably mean the goth, punk, hip-hop etc.groups. We think of weird people in too colourful or too dark clothes.According to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Subculture this particular wordmeans a group of people with a culture (whether distinct or hidden) whichdifferentiates them from the larger culture to which they belong .. But haveyou ever wondered where it comes from? As some of us can consider themselves as normal, they are sometimeslucky to be ones. Because in most of the cases, people do not chose to belongto this strange group. It is often a result of hard childhood or schoolproblems. People that dont feel well while belonging to one particular groupcalled normal, often search for other things that will definitely alienate themfrom the others. It often happens in schools where children do not place muchattention on toleration or even discriminate kids that are somehow different.That situation happens in almost every school in the world. Children can bebrutal, so the victims of those acts can feel so alienated that they want toexpress their point of view by wearing characteristic clothes and acting likethe subculture, they started to belong to.People that came across sexual discrimination, want to either fill in the societyor start to express their orientation stronger. They often do the second thing5 6. by wearing clothes that are not originally made for their sex or are just morecolorful, black or wear any other subcultural attribute they can think of. The third reason of belonging to any subculture could be family issues. Itmay be the most frequent of all of the three of them. Almost 65% of peoplehave or already had it. It could be almost everything: from drinking parents todisabled brother. When we do not feel well at home, we start to search forpeople from other societies in which we can isolate ourselves from the rest ofthe world. Up there, we think that it is just the best option currently possible.Trying to belong to certain subculture, means searching for a right expressionof who we really are. If we do not have this possibility at home, that is justwhat most of this people do. The last but not least reason, is just the simple fact, that you like oradmire certain subculture. You are just not afraid of your emotions and arewilling to express them. If, for example, you are a cheerful person, you maywant to wear colourful clothes, hairstyle or make-up. To sum it up, I think that there are many reasons of belonging to anysubculture. It can be your character, home issue, sexual or any otherdiscrimination that may happen at school, work or just the place you live in. Itcan also be the most simple, your admiration or fascination towards certainsociety. In my opinion, subcultures are something which people join to expresstheir emotions or point of view. Sometimes, it can help them open their selvesto the world, but sometimes, it makes them feel even more lonely than everbefore. Michalina Koczur6 7. Social websites where they come from and what they were created for? Young people more and more often register on numerous socialwebsites, the amount of which is growing larger and larger. Facebook,Twitter, deviantART have became part of our everyday life. We excuseourselves that we use them to keep in touch with our friends, but is thisthe only reason? Many teenagers got addicted to some social websites orthe not very intelligent applications supported by them. But who inventedthem and did he suspect how far that will go? I would like to present youa short history of four popular websites. Facebook.Firstly Facebook. It was created by Mark Zuckerberg, at first forthe Harvard University students, and launched in 2004, when its authorwas 19. Then, with the help of his roommate, he expanded in on the otheruniversities and then its popularity spontaneously developed. During itsactivity up to now, it has been changed many times. In 2007 Microsoftbought 1,6% of Facebooks share for 240 million dollars. Now its yearlyincome is estimated as about 100 to 150 million dollars.7 8. DeviantART was an idea of Scott Jarkoff and Matt Stephens, whowanted to create a place on the Internet where artists from all over theworld could share their works and discuss them. The website startedworking twelve years ago. Now it is very popular among talented people,particularly the young. It is a great source of art: photography, digitaland traditional drawings etc. (but always remember to ask for permissionif you want to use someone elses work or at least write who made it!). DeviantART 4chan.org is an imageboard website (people post images and thenmay discuss about them). It was launched in 2003; originally its maintheme were manga and anime. Users generally stay anonymous. A hugeamount of Internet memes such as lolcats or Pedobear was formed orpopularized (or both) on 4chan. The sites "Random" board, which is alsoknown as "/b/", does not have almost any rules on posted content. Englishportal gawker.com once jokingly said: "reading /b/ will melt your brain".8 9. 4chan There will always be as many points of view on social websites asmany people knowing them. We cannot judge them all at once, becauseeach of them is different. Some are better for us than the others (forexample, deviantART may help in developing creativity and imagination)and some are worse (people have recently started to blame Facebook forworse brain condition (teenagers cannot study as hard as theirclassmates who do not have an account) and creating a self-centeredpersonality). So when you wonder about joining one of them, consider alsohow it will affect your mentality. Katarzyna Walaszczyk9 10. MEME?! What the [...] is this!?I used italics for web addresses, because Ithink they should be distinguished somehowin such an article.According to Wikipedia, an Internet meme is an idea that is propagated through the World Wide Web. The idea may take the form of a hyperlink, video, picture, website or just a word or phrase, such as intentionally misspelling the word "more" as "moar" or "the" as "teh". The meme may spread from person to person via social networks, blogs, direct email, news sources, or other web-based services. In the deviantART.com society meme is seen as an image with text and blank spaces for other users to fill in, almost always with drawings. It looks like this on the left side of the page. Other types of meme may be found e. g. on knowyourmeme.com (a website dedicated to documenting Internet phenomena) or tumblr.com. On Polish sites, memes are not very popular yet, but they gain popularity fast. The most known (in my opinion, of course) is Co ja pacze? (in English it would sound like What Imma wotching?) , which was first published by Nie znam si, to si nie wypowiem (I dont know anything about it, so I wont judge) on Facebook, then popularized by kwejk.pl and now is used on many sites in a large amount images. It is said to may be inspired by the I can haz cheezburger?, which is one of the first examples of the so- called lolspeak (often with intentional10 11. mistakes, used for captions in memes). Some phrases from it have alreadyentered colloquial English and Polish, for example Why U no... or LOL U mad.The Polish Internet society does not have its own lolspeak wersion or does it?The first examples have already appeared, maybe Polish people will continuethe idea or it will just be laughed at and left. Co ja pacze and I can has cheezburger? Memes are very popular among manga and anime fans, or keen viewers of some series(for example Glee, Merlin or Sherlock). They are used to express peoples point ofview on the plot (or how they would like to change it) or remind moments which theyappreciate. This form of opinion and somehow art will not collapse soon. Maybe itwill become useful some day, or just comprehensible for everyone? Katarzyna WalaszczykI used fragments of the article about memes on Gazeta Wyborczas website(http://technologie.gazeta.pl/internet/1,104530,10861361,Memotechnika__co_ja_pacze_.html).Sources of the images:The Bleach meme: deviantart.com, aj-chans account (aj-chan.deviantart.com)Co ja pacze?: http://kwejk.pl/obrazek/689626/co,ja,pacze.htmlI can has cheezburger?: knowyourmeme.com11 12. YOGA-a sport for everyoneAt the bottom of the ocean, on the seabed, inan inaccessible and secret place, Shiva had beentrying to teach his wife Uma the fundamentalpractices of Yoga. Unfortunately, while he wastalking, she fell asleep. In the water there was alarge fish and it listened to the lessons with raptattention. When angry Shiva shouted at his wife:"Are you listening to me?!", he got a strong answer"Yes, my lord.". It came from the belly of the fish. Shiva realized that the fish had learnt Yoga and he decided to give up onteaching Uma and transformed the fish into Matsyendra, Lord of the Fishes. It isbelieved that all the yogic teachings which are now in existence have come fromMatsyendra.Why is actually yoga meant to be kind of sport for everyone? You can saythat you prefer football and that is your department. But Yoga is not just sport. It isa way which shows you how to feel your body and move it at once. No matter if youhave never done any sport or whatever you have chosen was a miss. Yoga can changeyour thinking, feeling, your body. Practicing Yoga can help you to feel more in touchwith yourself.It is incredible how everything what we eat, what we wear, the way we moveinfluence our life. It requires a lot of concentration therefore it may be verychallenging no matter what age you are. Throw all thoughts, forget about mobilesand other modern gadgets. One of the most important things is to learn how to relax.Yogis teach that the mind and the body are one, they interrelate with each other.The origins of the system remain a mystery. It used to be a discipline for thechosen ones only. But times have changed and it is accessible to other people as well.It has been captured the whole the world and it can be a lifestyle, a way of thinking,a hobby, a job, or sport for everyone.Zosia Polkowska III E 12 13. 13 14. Vegetarianism what can I think about it? Is vegetarianism a good or a bad thing? Opinions on this topic areextremely divided. Almost every person thinks differently. But what areits real pros and cons? On the one hand, some people claim that it is a very unnatural dietand should be worldwide forbidden. It does not require meat, so,consequently, does not give our body a chance to grow. The specialistsfrom the Indiana Scientific Circle said, that almost 80% of vegetarianslive shorter than people on normal diet. For example, a model, CindyRowland, died because of not enough strong food in her organism. Secondly, parents that make their children not eat meat, can leadthem to some serious problems with bones, their height and health.People, especially young, need a good portion of animal food delivered totheir organism. It is scientifically proven, that people who were onvegetarian diet as children, are lower than people on a meat diet. On the other hand, some people feel that eating animals meat isalmost equal to murdering them. They claim that animals have the sameright to live, as us, human beings. They want people to stop eating meatand try to live in peace with animals. 14 15. Some people say, that vegetarian diet does include a substitute formeat that has almost the same values as the forbidden one and can beeven healthier. They claim, that there is no difference for our healthbetween food from normal diet and the vegetarian one . The AmericanDietetic Association and Dietitians of Canada stated that a properlyplanned vegetarian diet is healthful, nutritionally adequate, and provideshealth benefits in the prevention and treatment of certain diseases.. Although both sides of the argument are extremely convincing, Ithink that vegetarianism is not a diet I would choose for myself, not tomention my children. I feel that even though many people thinksdifferently, I would not really be satisfied if I risked my health. Ibelieve that humans were born to eat meat and that is how the world hasbeen made, so I do not see a point in ruining all this harmony to feel goodabout oneself.Michalina Koczur 15 16. Alternative medicine to treat or not to treat?That is the question! Nowadays alternative medicine becomes more and more popular.Acupuncture, acupressure, herbal treatment... Everyone has heard about it.But there is one important question is it working or not?A discussion on alternative medicine revealsopposing points of view. Let us have a look atboth sides of the questi...</p>
