    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    A student has slammed classic Disney films for being 'horrendously outdated and offensive', claiming that the Jungle Book character King Louie is racist and that many of the animations have 'not aged well'.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.
  • Weve Become a Society of Pop Culture and Keeping Up With the Kardashians

    11/11/2019 4:12:34 AM PST · by Kaslin · 32 replies ^ | November 11, 2019 | Rachel Alexander
    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 weve 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."

    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...

    "College Student: My Generation Is Blind to the Prosperity around Us Im sitting in a small coffee shop near Nokomis trying to think of what to write about. I scroll through my newsfeed on my phone looking at the latest headlines of political candidates calling for policies to fix the so-called injustices of capitalism. I put my phone down and continue to look around. I see people talking freely, working on their MacBooks, ordering food they get in an instant, seeing cars go by outside, and it dawned on me. We live in the most privileged time in the most...

    Based on the book by Chuck Palahniuk, Fight Club is an important and affecting examination of reality in the 20th century... It explores the downfall of masculinity and shift into post-industrial capitalism. Jack is a skinny man working a dead-end job in an unnamed office...The film presents him as one of thousands of men convinced they are little more than lower/middle class workers. Jack obsession with cleanliness and style diverts him away from desire. His obsession with IKEA furniture subverts the idea of masculinity.

    lyson Bender, who is going into her junior year at the University of Pittsburgh at Greensburg, relied heavily on fans placed around her student housing to keep her cool during a recent heat wave. Still, the temperature in her on campus apartment crept toward 91 degrees over the weekend. Students staying at University Court over the summer are doing so without air conditioning, said Susan Isola, director of media relations at the university. Students are not permitted to use window AC units, she said, and are instead encouraged to use fans. When it gets really hot, Bender, who is studying...
