    Each generation has its own stereotype. Baby Boomers are known for being technologically challenged and intolerant to change. Millennials are apparently overly sensitive and kill everything. Gen Z is known for its obsession with social media and lack of focus. According to the American Psychological Association, these stereotypes are often wrong, and can even be harmful in an age-diverse workplace. Generally, there is tension between the youngest and oldest generations in a shared space, like Gen Z and “Boomers,” but the latest battle in the generational wars is between Gen Z and millennials, Twitter user local__celeb uncovered a series of...

    A Gallup poll published Monday found that only 20 percent of adults between the ages of 18 and 29 are "extremely proud to be an American." This is the lowest percentage of any demographic, falling 23 percent since 2017. According to the poll, this is the sixth consecutive year of decline in American pride across all demographics, and the first time "extreme pride" among whites fell below 50 percent. American pride among nonwhites is 24 percent. The partisan gap in American pride also fell to 43 percent from 54 percent a year ago. This year, 67 percent of Republicans—a 9...

    As the coronavirus continues to spread, young Americans are being warned not to take the pandemic lightly. A new study from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reveals that younger adults are also at risk of becoming very sick from COVID-19. While Americans aged 80 and older have a higher risk of dying from the virus, a significant portion of those hospitalized for the illness were younger, the study found. Of 508 patients hospitalized between February 12 and March 16, 38% were aged 20 to 54. The report also found that 47% of 121 patients who were taken to...

    Beaches in Florida are finally closing due to coronavirus concerns after local governments took action. Local officials in Clearwater Beach, which appeared earlier this week packed with visitors, voted to close by Monday. Beaches in Naples and in other communities in southwest Florida also were being closed. Meanwhile, new images show wild spring breakers continuing to party on the sand in Miami, despite South Beach's closings there as well, in response to the deadly, flu-like virus, also known as COVID-19.

    A top official on the White House coronavirus task force issued an ominous warning on Wednesday, declaring that more millennials in Italy and France had gotten sick than anticipated becasue they failed to heed warnings about large gatherings after initials warnings thatn focused on the elderly. “There are concerning reports coming out of France and Italy about some young people getting seriously ill, and very seriously ill, in the ICU,” Dr. Deborah Birx said at the White House daily briefing on the pandemic. Part of the cause may be that health officials worldwide may have minimized the risk to young...

    I’ve wondered for a long time how the millennial generation would cope with a real crisis. Not one of the myriad crises many of them claim to have every second of every day, triggering the biggest explosion of ‘anxiety’ and ‘triggering’ the planet has ever seen. No, a real one. One that impacts every one of us, one that causes genuine hardship and strife, one that causes huge numbers of deaths and rips the global economy to pieces and, one that is a proper valid reason to feel anxious because it’s indisputably frightening and none of us, not even the...
  • The Responsible Solution to the Student Debt Crisis

    “There is no doubt that it is around the family and the home that all the greatest virtues, the most dominating virtues of human, are created, strengthened and maintained,” Winston Churchill said in 1948 on the birth of Prince Charles. Marriage and parenthood, in other words, are the bedrock of a healthy and flourishing society, but student debt has prevented young Americans from starting families. Millions of college students start their adult lives with tens of thousands of dollars—sometimes more—in debt weighing them down. The mounting pressure of debt looms large over their lives like a specter, affecting monumental life...

    As people around the world canceled their trips because of fears of the new coronavirus, Ashley Henkel booked three. Henkel, 20, is taking advantage of cheap flights to see North America. She lives in California's Central Valley, but this summer she'll be in Vancouver, New York City and Portland, Oregon. A college student itching to travel, she's one of many people staring the deadly virus in the face and saying, "Whatever." As flight schedules are scaled down and airline stocks plunge, carriers are offering deals that have put air travel within reach for people who usually can't fly. It's a...

    According to a recent survey 70 percent of Millennials would be likely to vote for a socialist candidate. The survey also found that a disturbingly high percentage also “approve of communism.” A survivor of the former U.S.S.R. totalitarian regime offers some perspective:This level of support for totalitarianism confirms the complete failure of the  U.S. education system. To which I can already hear a chorus of “OK Boomer” from the younger generations. Fine. But just remember: I told you so. And trust me, that’s hard to do when you don’t have a gun. Don’t be so anxious to have your fellow...

    A Cambridge college has removed a 17th century painting from its dining hall because it offended vegans. Hughes Hall received complaints from students who said the painting, depicting a pile of dead animals, was putting them off their food. The Fowl Market, from the studio of Flemish artist Frans Snyders, features a striking collection of animals, including a boar and deer, caged hens and game birds strung up on hooks.

    A student has slammed classic Disney films for being 'horrendously outdated and offensive', claiming that the Jungle Book character King Louie is racist and that many of the animations have 'not aged well'. Lauren Robertson re-watched 11 Disney favourites - accusing most of them of 'portraying racist and exaggerated stereotypes'. The student, who studies languages at Aberdeen University, branded films such as Dumbo, The Lady and the Tramp and The Little Mermaid as 'dodgy'. Addressing The Jungle Book, from 1967, Lauren, who is originally from Dunblane said: 'Remember King Louie the orangutan?

    Kay Wilson packed up her life in a hurry and moved to Los Angeles... only to find that what she paid in Pennsylvania for a nice studio apartment would only get her a 2.9-square-meter box in California. Her new home is a capsule, inspired by the famous hotels in Japan. Wilson arrived a month ago at UP(st)ART, a community for young people with artistic aspirations in need of an affordable place to live.
  • We’ve Become a Society of Pop Culture and Keeping Up With the Kardashians

    Remember when the TV show Leave it to Beaver was the height of pop culture entertainment? About a nice family of four with good values? How far we’ve sunk since then. Now Americans watch all kinds of trashy shows and movies instead. Reality shows like Keeping up with the Kardashians portray a family with loose moral values who are famous only because one of the daughters made a sex tape and has an enormous behind. Yet millions of viewers watch this vapid family, who are not trained actors, regularly. It debuted in 2007 and is still going, as one of...

    Star Trek actor William Shatner waded into a generational row last night as he took aim at the catchphrase 'OK Boomer' and feuded with a Twitter user who had blamed older people for millennial 'hardships'. The jibe 'OK Boomer' has become popular among millennials and the younger Generation Z, who use it to show exasperation with older people and their opinions. One Twitter user aimed it at Shatner yesterday but the Hollywood veteran, who was born in 1931, fired back: 'Sweetheart, that's a compliment for me.' Warming to his theme, Shatner said he would 'wear that badge with honor' and...

    "The rise of the nones" is the attention-grabbing phrase used to describe the well-documented increase in the percentage of Americans who, when queried by survey researchers about their religious identification, say "none." This remarkable social trend has received significant publicity in recent years, based on generally similar research produced by Gallup, Pew Research Center, NORC's General Social Survey and others.The research shows that between about 20% and 25% of U.S. adults are now "nones" and — in a finding emphasized in many news reports — that this percentage is higher among younger adults than those who are older. One opinion...

    It's the latest trend in affordable housing - renters shelling out $1200 a month to live in communal pods in Los Angeles or San Francisco, where sex is banned and residents brand themselves with matching tattoos. PodShare, founded in in 2012, provides co-ed bunkbeds in six locations across California which it rents for between $50 and $60 a night, amounting to between $1,000 and $1400 a month. Everyone gets a bed that turns into a desk, individual power outlets, a locker, a shelf and a personal TV and tenants are known as 'pod-estrians'. The company uses the term 'co-living' for...
