Millennials and baby boomers are taught to hate each other—but they need each other to survive / Michael S. North / Quartz


Recently I argued that generations are more divided than ever in the United States. This is evidenced in no small part by the recent election, in which younger voters overwhelmingly favored Hillary Clinton, whereas older voters favored US president Donald Trump. This political dissonance has coincided with an economic one: A comparably well-off older generation…

If It Brings You Joy, It’s Not “Wasting Time” – Leslie Ralph / tinybuddha.com


Doing What Brings You Joy Is Not “Wasting Time”

Wonderful post from writer Leslie Ralph from tinybuddha.com that is especially relevant for all of us creative types.

My favorite lines : 

“Living with joy doesn’t hurt anything. It doesn’t diminish your drive or ambition. It doesn’t make you less intelligent. And it sure doesn’t make you any less

important. 

Living with joy makes you free, and that freedom reminds of everything that is possible. Even the serious things.”

7 Earth-Size Planets Orbit Dwarf Star, NASA and European Astronomers Say – Kenneth Chang / The New York Times


This is the kind of story that would have provided endless hours of fascination to me during my childhood and in fact, still does as an adult.  The opening paragraphs from the reporting of this story by Kenneth Chang of The New York Times:

Not just one, but seven Earth-size planets that could potentially harbor life have been identified orbiting a tiny star not too far away, offering the first realistic opportunity to search for signs of alien life outside the solar system.

The planets orbit a dwarf star named Trappist-1, about 40 light-years, or 235 trillion miles, from Earth. That is quite close in cosmic terms, and by happy accident, the orientation of the orbits of the seven planets allows them to be studied in great detail.

One or more of the exoplanets in this new system could be at the right temperature to be awash in oceans of water, astronomers said, based on the distance of the planets from the dwarf star.
