Performing the 1%: Class Rules in Lifestyle Brand Production and Consumption

Dubois, Emilie January 2012 (has links)
Thesis advisor: Juliet B. Schor / Thesis advisor: Danielle Hedegard / To date, consumption and culture scholars have not considered the impact of occupations that require workers to perform the desire for an elite, moneyed lifestyle through conspicuous consumption. I use participant observation and interviews among a lifestyle brand's producers and consumers to address this fissure. The analysis considers the lifestyle clothing brand Island Outfitters as it is created for and employed by the young male finance community aspiring to the top 1% of wage earners on Wall Street. I document how this brand is both created and consumed cynically by the cultural intermediaries responsible for its formation and the status-savvy consumers who perform loyalty to its goals of affluence. The argument is set in a homogenous high-status American occupational group within which many of the preconditions that motivate conspicuous consumption in a traditionally Veblenian sense still exist. The lived experiences of these workers are far more nuanced than this utilitarian goal suggests, yet informants express their complicity with the profit prescriptive by employing recognizable aesthetic scripts that are read for whiteness, conservatism, and wealth. Because it is too problematic for these young men to embody the goals of global finance in their everyday decisions, they texturize their professional identities with textiles. / Thesis (MA) — Boston College, 2012. / Submitted to: Boston College.

Frukost, övervikt och daglig aktivitet hos 15-åriga pojkar och flickor : En tvärsnittsstudie i Uppsala län

Rosén, Ulrika, Norevall, Ida January 2011 (has links)
Syftet med föreliggande studie var att studera frukostvanor, övervikt och fysisk aktivitet hos 15-åriga pojkar och flickor. Studien är en kvantitativ komparativ tvärsnittsstudie och är en delstudie ur det tidigare utförda projektet ”Mat & Hälsa 2007” där frågor om mat, hälsa, måltidsvanor, fysisk aktivitet och självvärdering undersöktes. I denna delstudie användes ett demografiskt frågeformulär som mäter ungdomars frukostvanor, fysisk aktivitet samt vikt och längd. Framkomna resultat visar att majoriteten av studiedeltagarna har regelbundna frukostvanor samt intar frukost utan sällskap av familjemedlem eller annan person. Vidare framkommer att pojkar tenderar att vara mer fysiskt aktiva än flickor trots att andelen överviktiga pojkar var något högre än andelen överviktiga flickor. Regelbundna eller oregelbundna frukostvanor tycks i denna studie inte ha något samband med ett högt BMI. Förmedlandet av goda kost- och motionsvanor ligger till stor del på föräldrarnas ansvar men även skolan och skolsköterskan har en betydande roll. Att i skolan erbjuda och servera frukost skulle kunna bidra till mer regelbundna frukostvanor hos barn och ungdomar.

The Research on e-coupon usage

Lo, Hung-Wei 05 June 2002 (has links)
The purpose of this thesis is which use the Consumer Strategic Procedure of EKB model to study the behavior of using e-coupon and the factor that influence it, to enable the firm to be aware of the need form consumer, and improve the application of e-coupon. Thus the main purpose of this study is to discuss and analyze the effect of ¡§demographic variables¡¨ and ¡§lifestyle¡¨ on ¡¨motivation¡¨, ¡§information search behavior¡¨, ¡§choice evaluation criteria¡¨, and ¡§usage and result¡¨ respectively ¡V the characters and differences. Cooperating with the professional web which gathers e-coupon, this research targeted toward people who have used e-coupons by the internet questionnaire. A total of 507 valid questionnaires have been collected. It used statistical analysis methods such as Factor analysis, Cluster analysis, ANOVA and Chi-square method, to analyze the original data. The finding of this research is following:

Maintenance of a healthy lifestyle: differences in the obese and non-obese

Jakul, Laura 13 September 2011 (has links)
The failure to maintain a healthy lifestyle (particularly consuming a healthy diet and engaging in regular physical activity) is a significant contributor to overweight and obesity and the resulting detrimental effects on individual and public health. Using Social Cognitive Theory and the Health Action Process Approach to inform the theoretical framework, this research examined whether maintaining a healthy lifestyle is influenced by different factors in overweight or obese and normal weight groups. Participants were 374 University students, categorized as overweight or obese and normal weight based on BMI determined by self-reported height and weight. They were assessed on measures of healthy eating and physical activity (at three-month intervals, to determine the maintenance of those behaviours over time) and variables predicted to influence those behaviours including: action self-efficacy, outcome expectations, intentions, planning, recovery self-efficacy, facilitators (i.e., consideration of future consequences, perceived social support and perceptions of general health) and impediments (i.e., depression, perceived stress and shame). Structural Equation Modeling was used to determine the fit of the predicted model for the total sample and for the overweight and obese and normal weight subgroups. The results demonstrated that a revised model predicting exercise behaviour (but not healthy diet) was able to adequately explain the data for the overall sample and for the normal weight subsample, but not for the overweight and obese subsample. Outcome expectations about exercise, self-efficacy and planning made important contributions to the prediction of exercise behaviour, but not diet. Implications of these findings will be discussed.
