It doesn't cost a thing more than anything else on the board. And it doesn't peeve me. You overestimate how it affects me, sir.
I am merely suggesting this because the point of a discussion forum is discussion. It's not self-congratulatory shouting out to no one. That's what blogs are for.
Have a lovely day. It's beautiful weather here and I'm just about ready to go out and enjoy it. Perhaps you would like to do the same? Smile
Please don't take this the wrong way but this similarity came across after reading your profile. You said you were born during the Kennedy administration which would make you born during the 'baby boomer' generation.
Baby Boomers: Now approaching retirement age, the "boomers" are those born in the decade following the end of World War II (aged roughly 47-65). They are considered a generation who have "had it all", cosseted by parents who experienced the Great Depression and raised in the prosperous post-war era. Many benefited from free tertiary education and relatively low housing costs. Common put-downs range from 'self-obsessed' to 'stuck in their ways'.
But here in today's time and climate:
In the U.S. and UK, millennials have brought changes to higher education via drawing attention to microaggressions and advocating for implementation of safe spaces and trigger warnings in the university setting. Critics of such changes have raised concerns regarding their impact on free speech, asserting these changes can promote censorship, while proponents have described these changes as promoting inclusiveness.
And this could include 'censoring' others' speeches and actions and attitudes.
But of course since you were born in the Kennedy Administration, you would be within the Boomer or GenX generations.
In 2016, the Pew Research Center found that millennials surpassed Baby Boomers to become the largest living generation in the United States. By analyzing 2015 U.S Census data they found there were 75.4 million millennials, based on Pew's definition of the generation which ranges from 1981 to 1997, compared to 74.9 million Baby Boomers. However, with their revised end date of 1996, millennials are expected to surpass boomers in size in 2019.
With this 'majority' group in The U.S, these will be the ones leading the U.S with other Nations as well as providing for the future of the U.S.
The Economist parallels this with millennials in the United States, whose attitudes are more supportive of social liberal policies and same-sex marriage relative to other demographics. They are also more likely to oppose animal testing for medical purposes than older generations
A 2013 Pew Research Poll found that 84% of millennials, born since 1980, who were at that time between the ages of 18 and 32, favored legalizing the use of marijuana. In 2015, the Pew Research Center also conducted research regarding generational identity that said a majority did not like the "millennial" label
In March 2014, the Pew Research Center issued a report about how "millennials in adulthood" are "detached from institutions and networked with friends." The report said millennials are somewhat more upbeat than older adults about America's future, with 49% of millennials saying the country's best years are ahead though they're the first in the modern era to have higher levels of student loan debt and unemployment.
Elza Venter, an educational psychologist and lecturer at Unisa, South Africa, in the Department of Psychology of Education, believes members of Generation Y are digital natives because they have grown up experiencing digital technology and have known it all their lives
This is similar to any 'staple' product in any lives. if this digital technology should ever get into some kind of 'loss', these lives will be without a certain aspect of their life since birth as they know it.
