    Declining marriage rates among millenials are a matter of some unease in the conservative policy world, as can be seen in W. Bradford Wilcox’s recent article. This trend may be partly due to an increasing imbalance in the number of marriageable men and women at all levels of society. For example, women have attended and graduated from college at higher rates than men for some years now, and in 2010 women receiving doctoral degrees outnumbered men for the first time. The overall cultural sense is that women are gaining and men are falling behind, as Hanna Rosin argues in The...

    “We make men without chests and expect of them virtue and enterprise. We laugh at honour and are shocked to find traitors in our midst.”—C.S. Lewis “An empty head is not really empty; it is stuffed with rubbish. Hence the difficulty of forcing anything into an empty head.” — Eric HofferOur kids are no longer taught about patriotism, morality, honor or self-reliance. They’re not taught economics. They’re not taught about the Constitution. The boys aren’t taught to be men and the girls aren’t taught to be women. In fact, if you find kids who know anything about these subjects, it...

    At this rate, the United States is going to need immigrants of all kinds to continue growth.A new Census Bureau study has just reported a sobering commentary on the current generation of young people.“There are now more young people living with their parents than in any other arrangement…What is more, almost 9 in 10 young people who were living in their parents’ home a year ago are still living there today, making it the most stable living arrangement.”It’s a factor largely of the economy, but also social mores and trends. The traditional lifetime pattern, you may recall, was for...

    Social incubator New Sun Rising has purchased a new headquarters that will create 20 jobs and a more sustainable Millvale, according to executive director Scott Wolovich. The nonprofit will move from a 700-square-foot space to the 10,000-square-foot former Loyal Order of the Moose No. 68 at 112 E. Sherman St. in Millvale. Millvale sustainability coordinator, Zaheen Hussain, will move from his current Millvale Community Library workspace to the new building, where he will work alongside New Sun Rising employees in a co-working space. The 412 Food Rescue co-founder and CEO Leah Lizarondo said her organization will use the kitchen to...

    Heads bowed, they stood in silent respect on the pavements of Wootton Bassett and tossed roses onto the hearses carrying soldiers who fell in Afghanistan. This week, London was stilled and many moved to tears as the last post was played on a bugle over the casket of PC Keith Palmer. After the attack on Westminster, in which he gave his life defending parliament against a knife-wielding lunatic, flags were at half-mast while mountains of flowers marked the spot where he and others died. These are moments when the British agree, as a nation, to "Silence the pianos and with...

    Well this explains a lot: Millennials Don’t Consider Themselves Adults Until 30. This, despite the fact that in most states you’re considered and adult at age 18 for all purposes other than drinking and that by age 21 you’re considered an adult in all sates, for all purposes. The median age of millennials is 30, Poltrack says — meaning that half are older and half are younger. And 30 happens to be the age at which millennials tend to self-identify as adults. I’m just a little sheep, why should I have to grow up to be mutton? While previous generations...

    The shackles binding the people of the world to oppression were the shackles fashioned by communist revolutionaries and Bolsheviks who had a huge followings of college-age anarchists. The leftist hordes of a communist political culture are on the march around the globe, in alliance with Islamofascism. These young people are shaped by universities, the media, Hollywood with their trashy productions and vile behavior, corrupt politicians with allegiance only to their own pockets, the multi-nationals, the corrupt judiciary, unions, and non-profits with billions and billions of dollars of funding from elitist billionaires such as George Soros who fancy themselves the social...
  • Study finds colorectal cancer rates have risen dramatically in Gen X and millennials

    A new study finds that compared to people born around 1950, when colorectal cancer risk was lowest, those born in 1990 have double the risk of colon cancer and quadruple the risk of rectal cancer. The study is led by American Cancer Society scientists and appears in the Journal of the National Cancer Institute. It finds colorectal cancer (CRC) incidence rates are rising in young and middle-aged adults, including people in their early 50s, with rectal cancer rates increasing particularly fast. As a result, three in ten rectal cancer diagnoses are now in patients younger than age 55. Overall, CRC...

    One can think of few occasions less suited to an outburst of spoilt narcissism: the launch of a hospital charity appeal, a campaign for the care of desperately sick and vulnerable people. That’s what Sally Jones, a communications consultant hired to publicise the event, presumed, anyway. Then, after weeks of hard work, she gathered her team together for a final photograph, which was to be released as part of the fundraising activity — only to be confronted by one of the youngest members of staff, a slender 28-year-old blonde, throwing an almighty hissy fit.

    While President Barack Obama is leaving office claiming victory on the economy, millennials are financially worse off than their baby boomer parents were at the same age. A new report looking at the economic situation of young people ages 25-34 found that millennials own and earn significantly less than their parents’ generation did as young people in the late 1980s. ...more...

    For the last 10 years, the number of millennials who have failed to move out of their parents or grandparents homes has climbed steadily, according to new data. Nearly 40 per cent of young adults are either living with their parents or other relatives, which is the highest point in over seven decades, new data from real estate analytics company Trulia states. This is the highest point in 75 years where young adults have just stayed at home with no plans on moving out. The only other time in American history where the share has been higher was back in...

    Hillary Clinton's campaign has lots of excuses for losing. There's the electoral college, James Comey, the media's alleged over-exuberance in digging into Clinton's email server, etc. But Clinton campaign manager Robby Mook said Thursday that one particular group is especially to blame: millennials. As Karen Tumulty and Philip Rucker reported from the big election postmortem at Harvard on Thursday night: Clinton campaign manager Robby Mook also acknowledged that her operation had made a number of mistakes and miscalculations, while being buffeted by what he repeatedly described as a "headwind" of being an establishment candidate in a season where voters were...

    She and a friend would run sessions teaching room painting, chicken roasting, savings accounts, engine maintenance. I rolled my eyes (I’d prefer “engaged thoughtfully”), but lo, it’s happened. In Portland, a teacher and psychotherapist have opened The Adulting School. Adulting. It was nominated as the word of the year by the American Dialect Society, a word coined by a generation that has been shielded from the worst of growing up by living in their parents’ homes, and shut out of the best of it by a society that forces them to stay there. Reminiscent of Alan Partridge’s seminal boast that...
  • VIDEO: AU students prefer Castro over Trump

    Fidel Castro’s recent death evoked conflicting assessments of his legacy from world leaders, but college students are no more prepared than prime ministers to justify their support for the Cuban dictator. President-Elect Donald Trump, for example, referred to Castro as a “brutal dictator,” whereas Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau called him a “remarkable leader.” In order to gauge millennial feelings on the passing of the authoritarian Cuban leader, Campus Reform asked students at American University which political figure they viewed more favorably: Castro or Trump. While several students identified the repressive elements of Castro’s regime, such as jailing and murdering...

    Salt Lake City rallies against Donald Trump on Saturday detoured from the crude chants and sometimes-obscene posters of other recent protests into more of an old-fashioned love-in. In an afternoon march from the Salt Lake City Hall to the state Capitol, most protesters carried roses as a symbol of peace — especially for Muslims, Latinos, refugees, immigrants and other groups Trump had attacked during his campaign. Marchers wore safety pins on their shirts, as signs that they are people who anyone may call on for protection. They usually followed organizers' pleas to avoid derogatory chants and crude language on signs....

    U.S.—As anti-Trump rallies nationwide turned hostile overnight with widespread reports of violence, looting, vandalism, and death threats against the president-elect and his supporters, police in numerous major cities were able to instill calm and regain control by handing out participation trophies to all millennial protesters who were enraged about losing the election, sources confirmed. The shrewd tactic was the idea New York Police Officer Joe Butler, who has three twentysomething children himself, and noted to reporters Thursday that he remembered how his children “never had to deal with losing as they were growing up.” Get the Bee delivered straight to...

    PORTLAND, Maine — Thirty-five people gathered at a popular Portland bistro on a recent weeknight to learn how to talk. Cards were passed and conversations sparked, but this group of branders, photographers, auditors and teachers weren’t merely networking. They were “adulting.” “Small talk is hard for me,” said Julie Moulton, a thirtysomething marketing coordinator who was attending the happy hour networking class at Sur Lie on Free Street. The event was organized by The Adulting School, a new program devoted to helping people learn skills they might not have picked up in college or from their parents. The founders take...
