|SYDNEY adidas prophere suomi , Jan. 12 (Xinhua) -- Australian youths are drinking less alcohol and smoking less tobacco and cannabis, according to latest research results released on Friday.
The study, which surveyed more than 41,000 students in Victoria, Queensland and Western Australia states with an average age of 13.5 years, found that improved parental attitudes and the availability of the substances were major factors behind the adolescent usage, the Australian researchers reported in the Drug and Alcohol Review medical journal.
"It is plausible that a reduced tendency for parents and other adults to supply adolescent alcohol are implicated in the reductions in adolescent alcohol use observed across Australia adidas iniki runner suomi ," they wrote.
Alcohol supply from parents fell from a peak of 22 percent a decade ago to 12 percent in 2013 alone, while the sale of alcohol to minors dropped from 12 percent to 1 percent around the same period, the researchers said. The legal drinking age in Australia is 18 years.
Successful public health efforts to reduce tobacco use and state laws to restrict alcohol sales to adolescents may have also contributed to less youths taking the substances, they said.

PHNOM PENH, Jan. 9 (Xinhua) -- The forthcoming visit of Chinese Premier Li Keqiang to Cambodia will further enhance China-Cambodia ties and deepen cooperation among the six Lancang-Mekong River Cooperation (LMC) countries, said a Cambodian scholar.
Li will attend the second LMC leaders' meeting in Cambodia's Phnom Penh and pay an official visit to Cambodia from Jan. 10 to 11. His upcoming visit coincides with the 60th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between China and Cambodia.
"Premier Li's visit signifies another milestone in nurturing and deepening special strategic partnership between China and Cambodia," Chheang Vannarith adidas nmd racer suomi , vice-chairman of the Cambodian Institute for Strategic Studies, told Xinhua. "More concrete steps will be taken to further realize the common vision of the two countries."
Li and Cambodian Prime Minister Samdech Techo Hun Sen will co-chair the second LMC leaders' meeting in Phnom Penh, which will also bring together Lao Prime Minister Thongloun Sisoulith, Thai Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha, Vietnamese Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc, and Myanmar Vice President Myint Swe.
Initiated by China in 2014, LMC consists of six countries adidas pharrell williams hu suomi , namely China, Cambodia, Myanmar, Laos, Thailand, and Vietnam.
It focuses on three pillars, namely political-security cooperation adidas ultra boost 3.0 suomi , economic cooperation, and socio-cultural cooperation, and five priority areas of cooperation, namely connectivity, production capacity, cross-border economic cooperation, water resources adidas ultra boost uncaged suomi , and agriculture and poverty reduction.
Chheang Vannarith said Li's presence at the upcoming meeting reflects China's strong political will to build a river of peace and common development.
"The 2nd LMC leaders' meeting will be another milestone in deepening political trust, fostering practical cooperation, and promoting comprehensive regional connectivity," he said.
He added that the meeting also illustrates the strong political will of the leaders of the six countries in building a community of shared future and promoting common development in the sub-region.
Speaking about China's role in the LMC, Chheang Vannarith said the world's second largest economy has driven regional cooperation through promoting shared vision and political will, institution building, and funding.
Asked whether the LMC could be better aligned with the development strategies of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) adidas ultra boost suomi , the scholar said the LMC has complemented ASEAN well by helping the least developed members of ASEAN to catch up with other members.
"Moreover, LMC helps realize ASEAN regional connectivity and production capacity," he said.
According to a Cambodian foreign ministry statement, at the upcoming meeting, the LMC leaders are expected to adopt four documents, namely the Phnom Penh Declaration, a five-year action plan of the LMC (2018-2022) adidas tubular radial suomi , a joint list of 2nd batch of cooperation projects, and reports of the Six Joint Working Groups of Priority Areas.
The Lancang River originates on the Qinghai-Tibet plateau in southwest China. It is called the Mekong River as it flows through Myanmar, Laos, Thailand, Cambodia and Vietnam before emptying into the sea.

The EU's chief Brexit negotiator said Thursday he is ready to speed up talks with Britain on its exit from the bloc as he voiced concern about progress and London's proposal for the border with Ireland.
"Given the passing time, and this passing time worries me, I am ready to accelerate adidas tubular suomi , to intensify the rhythm of talks," Michel Barnier told a press conference.
Britain is on a countdown to leave the EU by the end of March 2019, following last year's shock referendum vote.
Barnier spoke as his negotiation team published a combative paper on the future of Northern Ireland and its border with the EU-member Republic of Ireland.
In its new position, Brussels stipulated that the solution for the Irish border problem is strictly Britain's responsibility.
But Barnier said, "What I see in the UK's paper on Ireland and Northern Ireland worries me.
"The UK wants to use Ireland as a kind of test case for the future EU-UK customs relations. This will not happen," he said.
Barnier accused the UK, which wanted to "suspend the application of its laws myydään yeezy boost 350 v2 , its customs union and single market at what would be a new external border for the EU."
