Young people generally are often portrayed as being full of ambitions and hopes for the world and, therefore, important drivers of cultural change. The United Nations Population Fund describes well this expectation on young people as shapers of the culture of the future: As they grow through adolescence, young people develop their identity and become autonomous individuals. They develop their own ways of perceiving, appreciating, classifying and distinguishing issues, and the codes, symbols and language in which to express them. Culture is everything. Culture is the way we dress, the way we carry our heads, the way we walk, the way we tie our ties. It is not only the fact of writing books or building houses.

It's the new and improved version of Professor Orin Starn's original "Sports and Society" for Coursera, which drew more than 40, students.

Она постучала пальцем по кипе документов: - Вот твоя жизнь, Чед Бринкерхофф. - Но, посмотрев на него, смягчилась. - Могу я чем-нибудь тебе помочь, прежде чем уйду. Он посмотрел на нее умоляюще и покрутил затекшей шеей. - У меня затекли плечи.
