People between the age of 1 years to 40 years are having gray hair, what could be the cause ?
Relevant answer
Answer
The primary — and most scientifically-sound — reason for gray hair is in your genes. This is especially true if you go gray before 20 years old, which is referred to as premature graying. If your parents developed gray hair at a young age, chances are you will, too — and there's not much you can do about

In Uganda, youth is a critical concern and a popular topic of debate. The Uganda National Bureau for Non-Governmental Organizations has 2154 recognized non-profit organizations (NGOs). As of July 4th, 2022, approximately 215 organizations registered out of 2154 deal with youth issues. Looking at the core youth space/center of talks, the youth continue to blame the government for their failures, and I would also want to point out that the youth have forgotten that they can also play a role in altering their life. What's going on over there?

The Centre for Monitoring Indian Economy (CMIE) recently released the unemployment status report of India for December 2021. According to the report, the unemployment rate in the country was 7.91% in December. It was 7% in November. The highest unemployment rates were reported in Haryana (34.1%), Rajasthan (24.1), Jharkhand (17.3%), Bihar (16%), and Jammu and Kashmir (15%).
On the other hand, states such as Karnataka (1.4%), Gujarat and Odisha (1.6%), Chhattisgarh (2.1%) reported the lowest unemployment rates in India. High unemployment rates can be attributed to a combination of delayed economic recovery, a surplus of labour, and a slow agricultural season.

I am looking for suggested reading on the "neuroscience of trust" if anyone is aware of such or related studies.
I am researching how practitioners in "helping professions" for young people who offend practitioners can develop "trusting" relationships with the young people they support - ages eight to twenty-five years - to allow for meaningful and transformational interactions for both.
I hypothesize that hermeneutical injustice negates meaningful engagements and understanding the formation of trust socially and neuroscientifically, might help illuminate my investigation.

When a researcher (placed in "favorable conditions") supervises many young (gifted) researchers in the framework of a PhD or otherwise and thus obtains many publications as co-author, can we consider that this is a particular capacity to train young researchers or a scientific exploitation of young researchers (especially if all the work is done by these young people)?

Should I fully control the use of smartphones by children and adolescents?
If children or adolescents use smartphones for learning, as a tool to support education processes, communication with schoolchildren and friends, and if these devices use new online media from time to time, this may not be positively assessed. However, if divides or young people from smartphones use many hours a day, among other things, viewing advertisements on social media portals and worthless memes and films, then it can have a destructive effect on the intellectual and psychological development of children and adolescents. In this situation, the use of smartphones by children and teenagers should be limited and controlled by parents, guardians and teachers.

If in the process of technological and technical progress new kinds of products and services are created that improve the lives of people, it can be assumed that at certain times people may seem to be happier, then people can feel happier.
But after some time, people get used to a certain level of life and look for further stimuli from the world of science, technology, technology, production of goods, provision of new services that will meet the growing human needs.
However, it seems to me that in such a situation one should consider and verify the essence of the concept of happiness.
What is the achievement of people's sense of happiness in the realities of the current technological revolution, known as Industry 4.0?
Is the definition of the concept of happiness not deformed in the realities of current reality dominated largely by technology in technologically developed countries?
Is it sure that technological progress gives people a sense of happiness?
Technical and technological progress itself provides new products, but it does not necessarily always make people feel happier and certainly not in the long term.
In my opinion, the main factors deciding about happiness are on completely different issues and concern the fundamental values ​​of self-fulfillment in personal, family and professional life.
In this approach to the interpretation of the concept of achieving the state of happiness, self-fulfillment in various spheres of human functioning can be an important determinant of achieving happiness.
Do you agree with me on the above matter?
In the context of the above issues, the following question is valid:
Does technological progress make people feel happier?

What is out there that focuses on the well and "pro-social" children and young people?
Neuroscience suggests that when people are exposed to traumatic events their worldview changes. How then do we explain what happens to children and young people that appear to remain "unaltered' after what is generally perceived as traumatic exposure?

Seizures are fascinating intellectually, but they can be devastating for the person suffering from them. We have all heard stories of young people who seemingly have no genetic or other past medical history and present to the Neurological ICU in status epilepticus -- an entity known as NORSE. All our algorithms fail and we are left scrambling for effective approaches without any evidence. Often, despite our best interventions, these young healthy patients have >35% mortality rate. And those that survive rarely make it past the SNF.
We have one such patient in our Neurological ICU currently. So I wanted to ask what you guys do when the standard treatments have failed? Per the American Epilepsy Society guidelines, we initially treated her status with Ativan, Midazolam, Keppra loads, Vimpat loads, Fosphenytoin loads, Versed drips, and finally Pentobarbital coma. Currently she is on Keppra, Vimpat, Fosphenytoin, Felbamate, Epidiolex, and Fycompa. Thankfully the Pentobarbital is now off, but she continues to require continuous Versed drip.
In your experience, have you found anything effective in these situations?

A “cleavage” is a deep and lasting division between groups that comprises: an economic, religious and social dimension and collective identity of this social group. In Belarus and in Lebanon, have the new cleavages (poorer part of society, unemployed, young people, students, women’s movements, global middle classes) that are fuelling anti-government protests strong basis for mass identification and organization of interests? These new cleavages are endowed with crucial resources?
In many countries, traditional cleavages still have the social and cultural resources to bring together in collective movements the social resentment of a large part of civil society and the resources of many institutions. In countries where the basis for the rise of new cleavages are weak and fluid, there is a high risk that existing religious and political cleavages gradually prevail. But will it still be like this?

Dear Dr. Filipe Wiltgen ,
I probably haven't expressed my thoughts well.
The presentations are excellent but can also be accompanied by a video on a certain topic and by chemical / physical practical exercises that must be simple, spectacular and not dangerous but able to arouse the attention and curiosity of the audience on that topic. what it is ... for example, turning copper into silver and silver into gold has always been a dream ...
In this experiment, students will modify the surface of the one, two and five euro cent coins that are made of copper, through a series of chemical reactions. The reactions that will take place on the surface will lead to a change in color.
The color variation, a macroscopic modification, will be related to the microscopic modifications of the composition and structure of the materials that are formed, as well as to their final use.
In all this the researcher, if he knows how to transform himself into an alchemist, can achieve good success ...

Now my question is that I have a feeling that there won't be many researches on befriending on young adults.

Yes, this is a very important issue. The issue of communication with the use of new online media is very important in the context of an efficiently run education process.
We are currently communicating widely across various online media, including via email. Some of the email mailboxes we use have anti-spam restrictions, which makes communication difficult. The development of communication through various online media, also through social media portals is an important issue in education. New media should be effectively used in the education process, but not always their technical specification is fully suitable for the needs of communication development in the context of the ongoing education process. However, as far as possible, new online media should be used in education, because young people use them widely and can be an excellent additional tool in the field of teaching instruments, eg for the purpose of efficiently searching for the necessary, current information.
In view of the above, I would like to ask you: Should new internet media be used in educational processes?

Yes, the use of new internet media in educational processes has contributed to the development of the teaching and learning process Unfortunately, this process is misused by a large number of students during exams through various frauds and cheats, which reduces its effectiveness, and traditional methods of education may be returned to after getting rid of the Coronavirus.

We have to meet with different young people. These are new colleagues and students, etc. For simplicity, let's call them "children." The question does not concern professional qualities. Each person should have a certain supply of “good manners" allowing them to communicate with elders. In some societies, this happens almost automatically, since young people are brought up according to certain standards, but sometimes there are individuals who demonstrate a familiar attitude toward elders. Moreover, young people do not always find the right communication model, or accept the existing one in the group. What do you do if they communicate with you "incorrectly", or vice versa too "ceremoniously"?

Great project! Congratulation to the whole group!
I would approach such an issue starting from the actors that create foster and communicate tourism in the first place. What makes the (young) tourists decide where to go and what to do there? What strategies are in place that aims to attract tourists?
I think about the infamous Amsterdam case, we have now a generation of people who have been to the Netherlands so many times in their life without trespassing the Coffee Shop quarter.
Also, what is the role of the "new" media in tourists' decision making? My hunch is that Instagram and influencers in general play a paramount role in developing tastes and hence tourists' behaviours.
Another level of attention could be one of the local businesses. Do shops and entrepreneurs play a role in that? Jane Jacobs would say YES, and others such as Gehl architects say that retail plays a crucial role in the experience of a city/public space.

Hi all!
Together with another researcher, I have developed a new type of self esteem measure, to use in Ghana and potentially other countries. We wanted to create a measure that is less abstract, and more related to the daily lives of the respondents. Instead of using a typical scale, with statements and a Likert-scale as answer options, we use scenario based questions. We describe certain situations that are reflective of the lived realities of young people, and then let them select how they would most likely respond to that situation. Answer options describe different responses, which reflect different levels of self-esteem.
We now would like to determine the convergent validity of this measure, by letting respondents fill out our self-esteem measure, as well as 2 or 3 established self-esteem measures and determine how they are related to each other. However, I have never conducted such a study before, so I am looking for some guidance. Maybe some tips on how to go about it, literature that gives further guidance or anything else that could be of use.

Although education is more than simply getting the job, but major concerns of young students in the universities is how to land safely on the career surface. Unfortunately it is not their skill or degree which will decide the employment after university, rather market forces of demand and supply in the labor market which decide who will get the job.
For a young person, it is not an efficient decision to prepare for the specific job or career. It may be considered necessary step as a contingency plan, but prime goal is to be on the demand side of the labor market. Being on the demand side, means that person is joining the forces in the market who give jobs to others.
The entrepreneurial mindset is the key feature that can open the doors to join demand side of the labor market.
Discussion point is that what stops young people to develop the entrepreneurial mindset? Input is required 'for' or 'against' the argument built above.

Corona spread in India is the highest at present and numbers are daily increasing. We find that about 30 percent people do not use masks and many are keeping mask below the mouth to escape from police so that they can pull it to cover mouth and nose when a traffic signal is nearby.
The corona has affected the economy of India worst than any other country in the world and GDP is highest in negative direction. it is affecting the poor very badly. Many shops and small entrepreneurs are forced to close their business.
With all the above conditions, Indian citizens in large number are not taking the condition seriously. This phenomenon is quite strange and worth for research to understand the intention and behavior of these people. is there any effect of culture on irresponsible behavior? Whether, the information given by WHO that death rate of young people due to COVID-19 is negligible, is the reason for negligence? Whether people want to show that they are more immunized? What is the role of social stigma of considering corona patients as persons who committed sins so they got corona, and role social stigma of boycott of family having corona patient forcing the people to hide the illness?

As the lineage of the virus is weakening with more recoveries; peole seem to be adopting a careless take on the situation. While herd Immunity may be months away - news on a possible vaccine soon is making it difficult to impose social distancing.
Contextually, Indians are more social with a strong urge to interact. It seems that 9 weeks of strict lockdown has had a rebound effect on their psyche. The current focus seems to be on immunology; sleep, food, exercise and work.

The COVID-19 Pandemic is repeating history as in 1918 and other catastrophes. Maybe this will be a wake-up call to governments to listen to their health departments, to prepare for the future. Obviously, no one had prepared properly, even the largest most wealthy governments. This was all totally predictable, as I have been describing repeatedly in my comments, based upon history with previous pandemics, and notably the 1918 flu pandemic. The scenario is following the same format as has been done many times, it has been totally predictable, as I have been documenting for the past 6 months, and is predictable for the future. Human society needs to prepared better for the next time we have a pandemic, because it will happen again. Also, I think we are lucky in a way this time, as the mortality rate is only about 5%, but think about the next time, perhaps it will hit young people harder, or think about what happens if Ebola virus becomes airborne at 95% mortality. Obviously, this time no one was prepared, but the species will survive until the next hit. Everyone needs to wake up, and get better prepared. Thank you and stay safe. Gary Ordog, MD July 15, 2020.

Corona pandemic is still roaring in the US when Europe is relatively more relaxed but careful in easing lockdown.
The United States has long prided itself as the world's shining beacon. But its current status is a much darker one: the globe's leader in coronavirus cases.
More than 125,000 people have died from Covid-19 in the US, and more than 2.5 million Americans have been infected.
American life has been irrevocably altered by the worst pandemic in a century. And as the country struggles to reopen, cases of Covid-19 have surged again -- this time in young people and in states that had previously avoided the brunt of the virus.

Question

The average normal body temperature is generally accepted as 98.6°F (37°C). From various scientific studies, we now know that body temperature fluctuates as much as 0.5 F (0.2 C) throughout the day; that young people generally stay warmer than elderly people; and that women tend to maintain a higher temperature than men, depending on where they are in their menstrual cycles.
As per some of the recent studies, The ideal body temperature may no longer be 98.6 F. another factor is the accuracy of the device used; which may effected due to various things like ambient temperature, source emissivity, reflections, etc.
So then what is the meaning of temperature screening alone at most of the entry and exit points?
Relevant answer
Answer
We are completing a systematic review and meta analysis on the accuracy of non-contact thermometers and thermal imaging. The pooled sensitivity and specificity for detecting fever (against a gold standard like core body temperature measurement with thermometer) is around 65% and 90% respectively in the preliminary analysis.
This means that as compared to clinical thermometry, 35 cases in 100 cases of fever would be missed, which as such is not a good measure for any screening test. However, this is only for screening fever or high body temperature. The other issue is use of antipyretics which can lead to normal temperature measurement even in febrile patients(after popping a pill). It is also worth noting that the best sensitivity and specificity comes from studies in which the factors known to have an influence on the measurement (like distance from target site, type of instrument, expertise of the operator, ideal ambient temperature) have been accounted for. However in real-life setting that may be difficult to emulate. For e.g ensuring a fixed distance of 1 m and all measurements done by an experience person may be difficult. The high specificity is again misleading. Not all patients with fever will be due to COVID-19 and physical toil before temperature measurement may lead to detection of 'fever'.
Taking all this in account, it may be reasonable to say that use of temperature screening by NCIT etc is not an ideal tool for COVID screening.

Relevant answer
Answer
I want to express my opinion, but this opinion will be very different from the usual view. In my understanding, the development of music has stopped and has long been in a great crisis. Well, see for yourself. When did the first conservatories appear? They began to appear in the second half of the 19th century, however, by the end of the 19th century, all classical music was practically composed, and musicians as performers performed from the beginning of the 20th century to the present day the repertoire of previous centuries from the time of Bach. It is believed that atonal music killed classical music and new compositions are miserable similarities to atonal music. For example, some well-known musicians as performers try to compose music, but their cospositions do not inspire and leave only miserable impression. Firstly, in their compositions the concept of “melody” is practically absent, it simply does not exist. Secondly, there is no improvisation. All that remains is a pile of sounds, devoid of any logic. Therefore, musicians perform mainly the old repertoire, which has passed the test of time and the performance of this repertoire guarantees success. One famous pianist, Nikolai Lugansky, once said the phrase "At my concerts in Europe, I see people in the hall who are mostly over 60 years old." This is a very sad fact. Now I want to state the main reason from my point of view. There is a huge difference between passive listening to music as a musical background and active listening to music as your own performance. This difference is huge. It is believed that children with disabilities, such as autists, do not perceive music as just passive listening, but they begin to understand music when their fingers come in contact with a musical instrument for playing music, such as a piano. At the same time, their behavior changes dramatically when their fingers extract music from the instrument. Modern education is trying to prepare more people as consumers than creators. This also applies to music. Now we see tens of millions of musicians as performers, and practically do not see composers, there are no new composers at all, or practically none. From my point of view, a good understanding of music can only come through the stage of their own performance of this music. The more people will play music, the better they will begin to understand this music. I just want to express my belief that even any lively performance of classical music can give a million times more emotions than just passive listening to this music, even in the performance of ingenious musicians. From this point of view, I foresee a situation where pianists like Nikolai Lugansky will perform classical music in empty halls.

Much has been discussed about the policy that best contributes to the incorporation into the labor market of young workers. In this discussion, I liked to focus the question on three points of view, higher education, vocational or professional training or the promotion by the governments of entrepreneurship and self-employment of young people. Regarding university education, during the last half century it has been seen as a tool for social mobility. However, many countries with high rates of university graduates have high levels of youth unemployment and important percentages of graduates work below their qualifications, while inequalities in the labor market grow. I thank you in advance for your opinions.

The best plan is a plan (policy) that provides more options. Training in the broadest sense of the word, seems to be the best policy for youths. But training needs to be "credentialized" by a trust-worthy party. Better still if it's the crowd that does this instead of a invested-interest party. So "proof of work" has trumped "proof of stake" in education. Can-do is often what gets youth employed, not willingness to do. Because the later does not address the short term performance requirements of businesses

Can I do a LCA on a single combined sample of addicts and controls to identify specific subpopulations (latent classes) and latter check for proportions of latent classes among cases and controls?
If so should I include only geno,epi,trauma,parent indicators without group membership variable? Or do I include group variable as indicator also?

Answer
I thought about your aim and questions. I think it is difficult to recommend just another formulation. Therefore, I would rather pose some questions for reflection for you which might help you to set the right focus for your work.
What do you really want to know? Think about it without pressure of formulation.
What is your research interest: Are these the mental health needs of young people? Then how could you gain insight in these needs? Do you want to ask them? (Interviews? Focus groups....?) - Then your research question should be open ended, so that there is a lot of room for exploration.
Then you could for example have a main question, such as:
What kind of support do adolescents need at school for the promotion of mental health?
And subquestions such as:
What are the mental health needs of adolescents with regard to school support in the UK?
What are the limitations of current mental health support systems in schools in the UK?
What are the potential benefits of social workers for the promotion of mental health of adolescents in schools in the UK?
...These are just some thoughts. However, you address several topics with your research questions and I am not sure if this is too much for a Master thesis. It depends on how you would like to answer your questions?
=> health needs: Ask youth or teachers?
=> What is in place? Normally this is a topic for a literature review - maybe this can be answered beforehand in the introduction part of your thesis to justify the research gap?
=> What are limitations? Literature review? Expert interviews? Interviews with youth? Also important: Do you think of schools in the UK in general or special schools or just one region..... This must be very clear from the beginning!
=> Social workers: I think this is a completely new question. How do you want to find out? Questionnaire? Interviews, who will you ask?.......
I think you should be very clear in what you want before you formulate the questions. Then formulation is just a small part...
I hope this helps a little bit.
Good luck for your thesis!

I am looking for a validated scale for detecting burnout among young people and students in particular.
I know the Maslach Burnout Inventory version for students, and the Copenhagen Burnout Inventory
Do you know others to reccomend?
Thanks in advance,
Fabio

Hi Fabio,
You may find this useful. Many questionnaire related to students usually measure their academic burnout whereas Maslach Burnout Inventory–Student Survey (MBI–SS), measures their overall burnout.
MBI–Student Survey has been shown to have adequate reliability and factorial validity in Dutch, Spanish, and Portuguese students (Schaufeli, et al., 2002).
