    Fentanyl-related drug overdoses in 2020 became the top killer in adults aged 18 to 45—overtaking suicide, vehicle accidents, and gun violence, according to an analysis of Centers for Disease Control and Prevention data by nonprofit group Families Against Fentanyl.Fentanyl is a synthetic opioid that’s 50 to 100 times more potent than morphine, highly addictive, and deadly. Buyers may be unaware that the drugs they buy contain illicit fentanyl, a 2 milligram dose of which can be fatal.The substance is most often manufactured in Mexico using chemicals supplied from China and trafficked across the southern border by Mexican drug cartels. Fentanyl...

    ROME — Pope Francis urged a group of university students Sunday to fight off the “virus of individualism” by giving their lives in service of others. “In these confused times, made even more complex by the pandemic, I repeat to you: do not allow yourselves to be robbed of hope!” the pontiff exhorted in a video message to students at the University of Milan.

    Last year, when it was hard to field a team during COVID, Flower Mound joined a league from nearby Keller. Rhett Taylor, vice president of the Keller Youth Association, said the group’s five-member board decided the Flower Mound team should be ejected from the playoffs – even though they’re the top team. “This is the Keller league, not the Flower Mound league,” Taylor said. “In my mind, they’ve dominated our league.” Taylor also is a coach and a father. His team lost to the Rebels 33-0 this season. “My team got one first down all game,” Taylor said. “And my...

    DataTrek Research ^ | 11/20/2021 | Nicholas Colas
    The $64 question for the US labor market is how close are we to full employment in a post-pandemic world? One way we can assess this topic is by looking at the current employment status of younger Americans. This cohort was disproportionately hurt after the Financial Crisis, particularly when it came to underemployment. It took a hot labor market and years of economic growth to incorporate them into the labor force and into positions that matched their skill levels. Did the Pandemic Recession cause the same problem all over again, or are we in a better spot now?#1: Here’s how...

    Monthly updated data indicates one out of every seven young urban workers in China failed to find employment in August, including graduates from high schools, colleges, and universities.China’s urban unemployment rate was 5.1 percent in August, while the rate for those aged 16-24 is three-times higher sitting at 15.3 percent, the National Bureau of Statistics announced on Wednesday.Yet the official rate for the latter in August 2019—before the pandemic hit—was two percent lower.Commentator Wen Xiaogang said the large volume of jobless young people flagged the inconsistency of Beijing’s claim on economic recovery beyond the impact of COVID-19.The latest data show...

    Young North Koreans have been warned they must follow traditional lifestyles and adhere to the country's dialect. The secluded state's official newspaper made the demand in a column as Pyongyang tries to eradicate cultural influences from South Korea. Kim Jong Un's regime is particularly focused on the speaking habits of millennials, with some mimicking their neighbours by referring to their husbands as "oppa" - a term that means "older brother". The Rodong Sinmun newspaper said North Korea's standard language is superior and young people must use it correctly - all while ensuring their clothes, hairstyle, music preferences and dancing styles...

    Polling in the United States and internationally is showing a sharp increase in support for socialism among young people.Support for capitalism is waning as a new generation embraces views of collective economic policies and programs.Two hundred years after the birth of Karl Marx, his views are now coming back into vogue despite a long history of economic failures in socialist countries.A new poll conducted June 11-25 by Momentive on behalf of Axios found that a majority (57% of U.S. adults) still have a favorable view of capitalism. However, the most notable data point is age. Those 18-34 now are evenly...

    Measure sponsored by nation's top abortion providerFrom Greg BurtSACRAMENTO -- A California Senate committee will hold a hearing Wednesday on a Planned Parenthood sponsored bill to force insurance companies to hide medical procedures given to minor children from their parents. These so-called 'sensitive' services include abortions, sexual assault treatment, drug abuse and mental health treatment, cross-sex hormones, puberty blockers and sex-change operations. In short, Planned Parenthood wants parents to pay for major services for their children, but doesn’t want them to know what they are or that Planned Parenthood may provide them. So far, a majority of California legislators like...

    Back in December, North Korean leader Kim Jong Un intensified the Democratic People's Republic of Korea's (DPRK) culture war against South Korean media by introducing heftier labor camp sentences for individuals caught indulging in such entertainment. While the maximum punishment was set at five years of hard labor, it is now five to 15 years.As K-pop fandom continues to grow in South Korea and other parts of the world, the North Korean government and the DPRK leader are reiterating the country's stance on South Korean music and media.The 37-year-old leader of the DPRK recently referred to K-pop as a "vicious...

    The Civics Secures Democracy Act making its way through Congress threatens to create a national curriculum that would virtually compel teens to plunge into politics. It’s a horrible idea.Ever since the “don’t-trust-anyone-over-30” countercultural movements of the 1960s, we have been living in a culture that increasingly valorizes youth. In the view of the noted Harvard University cognitive scientist and author Steven Pinker, a technological change — the advent of television — is what propelled this social change.The baby boomers of the 1960s, the first generation to grow up en masse with a TV at home, received unprecedented access to each...

    A tragic day in Texas. – Below is a photo of a 133-car pileup that took place just south of Downtown Fort Worth on I-35W this morning. At least 6 people were killed and dozens were injured, as the entire north Texas/Central Texas region was plagued by below-freezing temperatures and freezing drizzle that turned roads into skating rinks. This is just heartbreaking. Pray for the families involved. This also happened in Texas Wednesday: From the story at the New York Post (because most Texas news outlets could not be bothered to report it): A 12-year-old Texas boy who felt “sad...

    The most common religious identity among young adults in the U.S. is "none," and the majority of Americans don’t believe it’s necessary for a person to believe in God to be moral and have good values, a new survey has found. Released Tuesday, AEI’s Survey Center on American Life investigating contemporary religion in the U.S. found that among young adults (age 18 to 29), the most common religious identity today is none. More than one in three (34%) young adults are religiously unaffiliated.Nearly nine in 10 (87%) Americans report they believe in God, but just over half (53%) report they...

    The left lives on “narrative.” In other words, it tells stories. It tells stories about race, gender, criminal violence, and a host of other things. Occasionally, these stories intersect with the facts, but more often than not, they don’t. I mention this because it was the unmistakable difference between fact and narrative that drove Georgia H, a lovely and articulate educator and nurse, to #WalkAway from the Democrat party and its stories. Her video has already garnered 1.1 million views and counting. That’s because she says crucial things about the nature of reality. “Cognitive dissonance” is a fancy word...

    Question: Why are so many of America’s young people apparently beguiled into despising America’s founding and heritage? I have had scores of Americans ask me that question in the last few months. My inquisitors have been baffled and perplexed as to why so many of our twenty and thirty- something citizens seem to so readily jettison what my questioners cherish as rich, meaningful, and critically important — an American heritage that has fostered and promoted individual human dignity (“All men are created equal”) with divinely imparted inherent rights (“and endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights” including “life, liberty...
