During this time, we saw an increased number of men living with parents & choosing unemployment over lower paying jobs.
1 in 4 living in their parents’ home neither go to school nor work.
What's more surprising? 9 in 10 who lived with their parents a year ago are still living there w/ no plans to leave.
According to economist David Dorn:
“If you get to the point where you’re turning 30, you’ve never held a real job and you don’t have a college education, then it is very hard to recover at that point.”
Forbes interview w/ a high school educated man:
"I’m very quick to get frustrated when people refuse to pay me what I’m worth."
“People feel that they have choice nowadays, and they do.”
A large % of disability is mental health & substance abuse related.
According to the CDC: men are much more likely to overdose on drugs or die from suicide. https://t.co/7w0Gv85dBI
Unemployed millennial men spend 10+ hours per week on recreational computer activities.

Researchers suggest over time videos games become a crutch & form of escapism for unemployed men.
Unlike low to middle skill jobs, video games provide:
The ability to make choices
Feeling of mastery and achievement
Visible achievement & status
Remember: "People feel that they have choice nowadays, and they do.” 🎮
Imagine: the future of work = more time to play video games 🎮.

2/The biggest myth, I think, is that universities help regions by educating locals as undergraduates.
Skeptics of universities say: "But most of the people who graduate end up leaving."
3/In fact, most of what a university does for a regional economy is NOT about educating local kids.
Educating local kids is good for the nation, but doesn't help a region much.
The way a university helps a region is through
4/Undergraduates usually leave town after graduation.
But university RESEARCH pulls in OTHER smart people from other regions, and they stay there.
Here's a paper showing that this is the main way universities increase a region's human capital:
5/Research also pulls in business investment.
Companies want to partner with university labs, so they can commercialize the technologies the labs produce. So they invest in the labs, and sometimes they even put their offices in the town.
No not Piers Morgan, I give no shits about him.
I mean this thing of criticizing women’s sensuality and then saying that they should get by on just their talent. Cause we see it everywhere...

Ellen's a hypocrite - and as for Little Mix, I'd just prefer they use their talent to sell records rather than their nudity.

And it comes up in a lot of different ways:
It’s interesting because we know that psychologically speaking, conventionally attractive people are better received.
Attraction can shift as you get to know someone on an individual level, but overall our society privileges people who look good.
I don’t understand the question?
This is a survival mechanism. I'm not saying it's not an issue, I'm just asking how do you fix it? Or can you fix it? If not are you just complaining to complain?— JustUnderReality (@under_just) November 21, 2018

2....@Potus sent Jared Kushner (JK) to SA on an undisclosed trip and told King Salman that business as usual was over, and if he wanted Pres Trump's support, Prince Alwaleed would have to be divested of $ and power; Alwaleed is one of top Deep State $ men and was tied to HRC.
3. @Potus knew that before he could begin cleansing the US and the rest of the world of the DS, he would have to cut one of the financial head's off the snake (Alwaleed). After JK met w/ King Salman, Alwaleed was arrested and divested of billions; MBS became leader of SA.
4. SA loves Pres Trump because he's a man of his word; SA could not trust Hussein or Clintons because they use SA for oil and leverage; SA has many factions, but essentially you have the new and upcoming SA that is attempting to modernize through Crown Prince MBS, and then you
5...have the old guard represented by Alwaleed who was one of the Deep State financial heads and loyal to the DS more than SA; SA knew Hussein was financing Iran to hold western world hostage, and SA was caught in middle of Deep State black mail; this is why @Potus was celebrated
The answer is artist Will Hulsey...
Will Hulsey was the undisputed king of the animal attack pulp cover. You name it, he'd paint it attacking you in a pool of stagnant water.
Very little is known about Will Hulsey, but he worked on a number of men's pulp magazines in the 1950s and early 1960s including Man's Life, True Men, Guilty, Trapped and Peril.
Their audience was ex-GIs: during WWII the US Council of Books in Wartime had given away over 122 million books to American servicemen to read; this led to a post-war surge in paperback and magazine sales amongst these newly enthusiastic readers.
As a result the 1950s saw a raft of men's pulp magazines being published to tap into this market - almost 200 different titles!
Autosport / motorsport zmienił nagłówek swoje tekstu, bo pierwotnie sugerował on że Kubica jest numerem jeden na liście Williamsa na tytuł mówiący tylko tym, że nadal jest na liście kandydatów. Zrobili to po interwencji zespołu. Same wypowiedzi Kubicy z wywiadu się nie zmieniły.
Trudno powiedzieć czy autor się pośpieszył i wyciągnął inne wnioski niż powinien, a może wie coś więcej, ale nie mógł tego otwarcie napisać. Słowa Kubicy brzmią jednak jednoznacznie: decyzję podejmie w ciągu kilku dni.

In fact most of my university time has been filled with this kind of rhetoric, mostly from professors, from laptop bans to full-on tirades about “back in my day”.
Which is especially fascinating given that almost all of my profs are boomers and according to the stats...
“Baby boomers spend 27 hours per week online, which is two hours more per week than those who are between 16 and
I like digital spaces. In some ways they feel more real, we don’t talk about how’s the weather and how’s your sister and all those annoying scripted conversation topics.
If I want to sit here and type a feminist rant I can; and I’m not going to get hauled off by the cops for disturbing the peace.
I can have deep, meaningful conversations and connections with people without navigating the sensory overload of public spaces.
