Millennials And Their Kids: Why They’re Choosing DIY Education

For millennials the conversation around raising kids is not too far off in the distant future. For many that reality is already here with over 50% already becoming parents. Unlike our parents’ generation where the procedure was get married, buy a house, and then have kids, millennials are doing things a little bit differently. Take it from Jared Angaza who became the guardian of a 10-year-old Rwandan boy at the age of 27.

Millennials, We Need Your Help To Fix Health Care

Seventy-five years ago, America and the free world faced an existential threat from the Axis powers—and the so-called “greatest generation” responded. There’s no doubt that people who were 18 to 35 years old in 1942 paid the heaviest price earning their place in the pantheon of history.

Can you imagine cooking ten times a week and then slinging the contents straight into the bin? Every year Britons chuck some seven tonnes of food away. And if that’s not concerning enough, just ponder little over our attitudes toward such squandering. A recent survey from supermarket giant Sainsbury’s should make us bow our food weary heads in shame. Of the 5,000 adults asked, only 3% felt guilty about throwing food away. Even when it does cost us some £700 per household, per year. When it comes to savings, there’s…

Most American millennials are politically independent: Study

Although millennial voters are seen as a key demographic factor for a political victory in the US, their political views differ significantly from their parents or young people of previous generations, finds a recent research. In an increasingly individualistic culture, large groups such as political parties are getting less popular among American millennials — people born between the early 1980s and 2000, the study said. “Americans, especially young people, are abandoning the two major political parties to declare themselves politically independent,” said lead researcher Jean Twenge, Professor at the San…
