The main goal
of this paper is to study the effect of media use especially
the Internet on political behavior of Tehran University students. To this end,
the effect of Internet use is investigated not only by considering the amount
of access, the utilized online sources for the news-seeking, etc., but also
through the effects of environmental and cognitive elements.
this study is composed of students from Tehran University divided into 4 groups
of Humanities, the Arts, Engineering, and Sciences. Data was collected using
the survey method through conducting 295 structured, face-to-face interviews.
Findings show that the
Internet is used more frequently than other media for
tracking political news, with nearly 90 percent of
respondents indicating that they use the Internet for the purpose of finding
political news. Participation in the demonstrations among non-traditional
political behaviors, and voting in elections among traditional political
behaviors are more common among the students than the other political
activities. The results of structural equation modeling show that the

This paper studies socio-economic factors
affecting begging phenomenon in the city of Mashhad. So, sociological and
social policy approaches are used to clarify theoretical and conceptual
dimensions of panhandling. Also, qualitative method and related techniques such
as in deep and unstructured interviews and observation (of ways of begging) are
used to collect the research data and information. The study is based on the argument that the
phenomenon of panhandling is concerned with two groups of factors including
indirect (environmental enabling) and direct (individual) ones. The research
findings indicate that such factors as the very identity of the city of Mashhad
from the point of view of religiosity and immigration as well as features of the
very beggars such as having an unfavorable physical state, the low level of
education, family unfavorable situation, lack of basic capabilities, poverty
and unemployment were determinant factors that intensified each other and led
to the emergence of inability state and to the acceptance of begging role. The
latter is also enforced and sustained through a socio and psycho humiliating
process. On the contrary of the prevailing perspective that blames beggars in
moral degradation and lack of laziness, the paper concludes that poverty and
insolvency and related variables play higher roles in this process.

effect of environment and family origin on people’s taste selections can
explain the difference of cultural consumption pattern in above- mentioned

that cultural life style has been individualized in Iran society since that by
individualization of a behavior in a scope, finding the pattern in that scope
becomes difficult. Also the differences show that our society is not a mass one
with a same culture. So Ulrich Beck theory and Frankfurt school view are not
confirmed referring to the findings of this research. And According to Piere

For this purpose, using semi-structured interview method, 29 individual and group interviews with 54 Tehran citizens from different age and sex groups were conducted.
