Young people face the ultimate distraction from reality with hand-held technologies and media. They have mastered the art of posting on Instagram with the aspiration of becoming an influencer but never learned how to stick to a task and provide value to an actual firm.
The gig economy is not a traditional economic sector. Much of the reason it has been so profitable for all involved is because its model is brilliantly innovative. Now that one state has committed to essentially dismantle the gig economy, it is likely that others will follow suit.
The claim about youth’s transformative commitment to radical environmental change is bunk. People give up what they’re willing to give up. One’s own habits are necessary, their behavior tells us; it’s everyone else’s that need to change.
Thanks to the rich and superrich here, electric power is a given, so is trash collection, so is drainage, and for a growing number, so is air conditioning. And Americans of all economic classes don’t have to endure the insanity-inducing agony of endless flies.
Since the telescope was first patented in 1611, the discoveries that have been made on it have changed the way we view the known universe. It’s hardly a humble device. Because our limited human eyes can only see so much, the telescope has helped us look into the beyond.

The intellectuals acquire a discontented frame of mind, and become resentful. Resentment rationalizes itself into the social criticism of the economic spectator. This, in turn, creates a hostile atmosphere surrounding the engine of capitalism.
Many Angelenos are doing the exact opposite of what Mr. Washington would like. Hugh Brockington, a musician who lives in the L.A. suburb of Pasadena, rode buses to auditions all over the city, until the frustration of slow travel got the better of his good intentions. “I just couldn’t do it anymore,” he said.
