Millennials Care Most About Money, Self-Image, Study Says

Young people don’t seem to care about anyone but themselves, a new study reports.

Millennials, also known as the generation born after 1982, tend to favor money, fame and self-image over innate values like self-acceptance, affiliation, and community, according to a study published in the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology.

“The results generally support the ‘Generation Me’ view of generational differences rather than the ‘Generation We,'” the study writes.

The study is called “Generational Differences in Young Adults’ Life Goals, Concern for Others, and Civic Orientation.” It compares the traits of baby boomers and Gen Xers when they were younger to the traits of those young people currently in high school or entering college.

In 1971, college students ranked being rich as No. 8 among their life goals; however, since 1989, they have placed it as their first objective. Read the rest of this entry »



Schools Encourage Students to Nap for Success

I don’t know about you, but every day around 2:00 p.m., I hit a brick wall. Figuratively, not literally, of course. At this time, every single day, I start getting sleepy. My eyes droop, I have to constantly stifle yawns, and I cannot focus on anything more mentally stimulating than a game of Angry Birds on my phone.

According to much research, humans need approximately 7-9 hours of sleep; if you do not get this amount of sleep at night, you can supplement it with power naps that last 20-30 minutes. Also, many humans have natural energy slumps between 10-11 a.m. and 2-4 p.m., (which explains why I need a nap at this time on most days).

NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament Sweet 16 Preview

The Sweet 16 kicks off tonight, with a batch of four games that should all be compelling. So let’s take a look at the four games:

1. Butler vs. Wisconsin: Here we go again. A year removed from a surprising National Championship Game appearance, the Butler Bulldogs are a Cinderella story again. They upset the top-seeded Pitt Panthers in the second round (Really, who hasn’t at this point?) but will need some more help for Shelvin Mack, who probably won’t go 7-of-12 from three-point range again.

Wisconsin held off Kansas State last round and can shake their postseason demons with a solid win here. But star guard Jordan Taylor better not pull another 2-for-16 from the floor, or the Badgers will be in trouble.
