|[2007-01-03] Why teens smoke, take drugs, have unprotected sex and do other stupid things|
|Teens smoke, take drugs, have unprotected sex and ride with drunk drivers, not because they think they are invulnerable or haven't thought about the risks, says a new Cornell study.
In fact, they are more likely to ponder the risks, take longer (about 170 milliseconds more) weighing the pros and cons of engaging in high-risk behavior than adults - and actually overestimate the risks. It's just that they often decide the benefits - the immediate gratification or peer acceptance -- outweigh the risks, says Valerie F. Reyna, professor of human development at Cornell.

The magnetic charm of Lake Baikal is an unforgettable and integral face of Siberia, which has to be seen to be believed!

|As we in Kazakhstan celebrate the New Year, Qurban Ait (Eid al-Adha), both Catholic and Russian Orthodox Christmases and even Hanukkah, we look back at the year 2006 andsee that our ties with the peoples of the world, including the Americans, have become stronger.
