    Several weeks ago, I met up with a friend in New York who suggested we grab a bite at a Scottish bar in the West Village. He had booked the table through something called Seated, a restaurant app that pays users who make reservations on the platform. We ordered two cocktails each, along with some food. And in exchange for the hard labor of drinking whiskey, the app awarded us $30 in credits redeemable at a variety of retailers.

    How much does it cost for bare minimum accommodations in San Franciscoi.e, a bed and a roof? In the Tenderloin, thatll be $60 per night, or $1,200 per month. Thats what the Southern California-based startup Podshare charges for one of its pods at the companys first San Francisco locale. According to the company, A pod is a hand-built, high-end bunk bed complete with your own flat screen TV and night light. Renting with Podshare buys access to the bed and the communal spaces in the building in whats essentially a hostel-like setupcomplete with a dearth of privacy thanks to the...

    Transience is the very essence of the entertainment business, unpredictability its warp and weft. Early this month, the market research and data analytics firm YouGov published the results of a startling poll. According to interviews with 1,254 adult Americans, 30 percent of millennials have no best friends, 27 percent have no close friends and 22 percent have no friends at all. Not surprisingly, the report named them the loneliest generation. But loneliness is all around and perhaps nowhere more profoundly than in Hollywood. Heres what surprised me: that the statistics werent worse, for older people as well as millennials. Look...

    As the 2019-2020 school year begins this fall, millions of high schoolers and college students will be heading into an academic rife with politicization and heated classroom discussions. But, how do students truly feel about issues such as socialism, free speech, health care, and illegal immigration? Do these kids aged 13-22, known as Gen Z, feel comfortable sharing their true opinions? Do they even know the basic concepts of what they are discussing? To find out, Young America's Foundation, "the nations premier organization for inspiring students on high school and college campuses with conservative ideas," teamed up with Echelon Insights...

    Being simultaneously comical and tragic, perhaps nothing reflects our descent into Idiocracy more than millennials wholl insist their misspellings of words are correct. Just yesterday I read an eyebrow-raising story about this that was quite timely, as Id experienced millennial spelling moronity just the day prior. My case involved a leftist who emailed me with some deep, substantive criticism: He said I was insane, nuttier than a fruitcake and f*****g nuts. I responded to him. While I generally dont play the spelling Nazi, leftists characteristic superciliousness inspired me to mention to him, kindly, that hed written youre as your three...

    Raj and I are off for the weekend to visit friends at the beach or to the shore as they say on the Eastern seaboard. And shore may be more accurate than beach this year as Lake Michigan - like all the Great Lakes - is near all time record high water levels. As a result even the largest beaches at the State parks are smaller this year and places with smaller beaches to start with have virtually no beach at all. The water laps at the very base of the bluff and erodes it away. The stairway to...

    A booming economy should help people make good financial decisions since more money can be directed to other needs. That is why savings rates normally go up as the economy improves. People naturally tend to take advantage of better days especially after bad or slow times. This is not happening now. Many Americans are spending more on consumer goods, but they are not saving their money or accumulating wealth. No Emergency Funds Nearly a quarter of households, for example, do not have any available emergency funds according to a survey conducted by the SSRS research firm. Another third do not...

    Today, members of the millennial generation are ages 23 to 38. These ought to be prime years of careers taking off and starting families, before joints really begin to ache. Yet as a recent poll and some corresponding research indicate, theres something missing for many in this generation: companionship. A recent poll from YouGov, a polling firm and market research company, found that 30 percent of millennials say they feel lonely. This is the highest percentage of all the generations surveyed. Furthermore, 22 percent of millennials in the poll said they had zero friends. Twenty-seven percent said they had no...

    Despite America's improving economic state as of late, a new study suggests millennials are not weaning themselves off of their parents' money particularly well or at all. According to the poll, 46 per cent of millennials (that's anyone born between 1981 and 1996 typically) "admitted their parents help them with basic costs like their cell phone bill, their groceries, and their rent." Similarly, 48 per cent said their parents were their first stop for financial support above a bank loan or savings.

    Here is an excerpt from an email from a misinformed white millennial: Mr Marcus, as a black man, if you don't agree in part with Mr. Kaepernick, I feel bad for you. I am white, and feel that the issues facing the black community in the US from the police, legal elements, property, education are skewed, and need to be rectified. I am concerned that someone with your pulpit isn't out there helping out. I usually receive emails from progressives who call me an Uncle Tom stupid n***** for loving my country and not viewing myself as a victim....

    A man was arrested in Florida after sheriff's deputies say he tried to steal a car from an elderly man in Orlando. The reason he was unsuccessful? He didn't appear to know how to drive a stick shift, according to the Orange County Sheriff's Office. The incident occurred Tuesday when an elderly man left his car running with the keys in the ignition while he was putting his walker into the trunk. According to the sheriff's office, a man, later identified as 25-year-old Jaylen Alexander, allegedly attacked the elderly man, slamming the hood of the trunk on his chest and...

    Xillennials as those born between Generation X and Millennials, without the benefit of technology My daughter thinks that the political labels of conservatism and liberalism are now misappropriated on purpose, they do not reflect the reality of ideological intent contained therein. Conservatives believe in the true liberation of people from the enslavement of government while liberals are not really interested in freedom as the term implies, but want to conserve in perpetuity a system that oppresses voters, legal and illegal, based on an euphemistically defined socialist/Marxist indoctrination by the government as the benevolent provider of everything without which life would...

He's certainly got the talent.His work includes a great action shot he snapped of former Navy quarterback Keenan Reynold, mid-stride, his arm cocked for the throw. He also took a moody picture of a nighttime meteor shower over a mountain and a stream, and contributed regularly to local magazines in his...

    NN)The suicide rate in the United States continues to climb, with a rate in 2017 that was 33% higher than in 1999, new research finds. Suicide rates among people 15 to 64 increased significantly during that period, rising from 10.5 per 100,000 people in 1999 to 14 per 100,000 in 2017, the most recent year with available data, according to annual research published by the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's National Center for Health Statistics on Thursday.

    Suicide rates among young people are rising, reaching the highest levels since 2000, a study published Tuesday finds. But most alarming, the researchers said, was a 21 percent rise in boys aged 15-19 dying by suicide in 2017 from the year before. "Previous studies talked more of an increase in female suicide, but what were showing is that rates among males are also increasing rapidly," Oren Miron, the study's lead author and a research associate in biomedical informatics at Harvard Medical School, told NBC News.
