'Snowflake Students' Need Reason And Debate, Not Wristbands

James Gullis | Posted 21.09.2017 | UK Universities & Education
James Gullis

Over protection and excessive safeguarding of the 'smartphone generation', has led to a hypersensitive, 'politically correct' society . The only way to diversify the views and opinions available is by encouraging debate, discussion and reason both in society and on campus.

I Think Too Much

Trevor Holland | Posted 07.09.2017 | UK Comedy
Trevor Holland

I've used my ADHD to my advantage, though. I'm a comedian. It's my passion. It's my chosen creative outlet but one that I've struggled to find the ideal application for. I've been a stand-up, but this seemed to involve too much, well, standing up.

Crafting Is Getting A Millennial Makeover

Beth Gill | Posted 30.08.2017 | UK Lifestyle

Embroidery and crochet aren't words that immediately shout 'fun' and 'youthful', let's be honest. But, all the same, recently, there has been a bit of a peaking trend in crafting. Young people are starting up creative businesses, and the rest of us, which aren't talented, is curious.

Your Child Doesn't Just Need You To Say 'I'm Here For You' - They Need Coping Mechanisms

Barry Richardson | Posted 25.08.2017 | UK Parents
Barry Richardson

Today's children are growing up with anxieties and worries that we won't fully understand. Yes we were children once, but as we fondly tell others, we didn't have the Internet or apps "in our day". Today's digitalisation is having a profound effect on children's lives and futures - both good and bad.

Millennials Aren't All London Luvvies, Let's Broaden The Discussion

Sophie Bauer | Posted 14.08.2017 | UK Lifestyle

My interest in the piece quickly dwindled, however, and subsequently deflated like a punctured '30 today' balloon as I read the words 'avo on toast'. All of the women interviewed as source material were lean, mean, white, middle-class, London-dwelling machines. Not a single non-yuppie or 'regional' voice to be heard.

Last year, my cousin (who is 10 days younger than me) got married. My friend announced that she was pregnant. And all while I was trying to figure out a way to cheat the system and keep my 16-25 Railcard.

Fulfilling My Stereotype: Why I Love Being A Millennial

Katie Booth | Posted 07.08.2017 | UK Universities & Education

Hell yes, I'm entitled. What's so wrong with expecting the good things in life, especially if I'm prepared to work hard to get them? And I'm not just talking about physical "stuff", I'm proud to be part of a generation that stands up and expects things like real gender equality, fights racism and other unfortunate facts of life that somehow still aren't just a thing of the past.

Delivering A Winning Performance Amidst Britain's Falling Productivity Challenge

After all, the only thing worse than demotivated staff leaving, is demotivated staff staying and the cumulative impact of this is bad news for the UK economy and our future prosperity.

Why Are We So Afraid Of Our Thirties?

Naomi Cooper | Posted 03.08.2017 | UK Lifestyle
Naomi Cooper

The idea that being 30-odd is too old to pursue your passions and dreams, even if that involves a drastic change, is ludicrous. You are not yet halfway through your life. You have survived your twenties, observed yourself change and grow, and now have a better idea of who you are and what you want than ever before.

Will We Become A Generation Of Minimalists Or Wild Unadulterated Spenders?

Brittnay Sharman | Posted 28.07.2017 | UK Lifestyle
Brittnay Sharman

Millennials love a trend, they come and go. You don't even get a chance to Google them, or ask a friend on the sly. Case in point, bae, to be fair has stuck around for the long haul now. Minimalism seems to be doing the rounds at the moment. You can't jump on any site without seeing yet another article harp on about its benefits, or try going to Amazon without seeing a book about it.

As Millennials enter the next stage of their lives, marketers are beginning to think they finally understand this much-discussed audience.

More is more - and we're constantly competing, whether we admit it or not, to be doing the most. The most what, you ask? Well, anything. But in the interest of making this readable in the age of zero attention span (myself included), let's look at two key gauges of "success" in 2017...

You have to believe it though. You have to believe that guys like this do exist. You have to not settle for residing in a mediocre eternal limbo. You have to be the girl who expects to be treated like she's magic, because you are magic.

This isn't me telling you not to put in the hours. No matter what career path you choose, if you want to be successful, it will be work. I just hope you realise that the internet literally brings the world to your fingertips. Now more than ever, you can create the lifestyle that you want for yourself. It won't be easy, but it will be worth it.

Social Media Is As Harmful As Alcohol And Drugs For Millennials

Dr Tony Rao | Posted 22.06.2017 | UK Tech
Dr Tony Rao

Addiction may seem a bit of a strong word to use in the context of social media, but addiction refers to any behaviour that is pleasurable and is the only reason to get through the day. Everything else pales into insignificance. Millennials may not get liver damage or lung cancer from social media, but it can be damaging nonetheless.

Six Ways Viral Listicles Will Doom Journalism And All Humanity

Questions are worth asking when articles are being written with the main intention of maximizing shares. Journalism must evolve with the times, but if we are to reach the post-post-truth era, it must do so responsibly and not let its standards fall in the process.

Millennials, We Need To Talk About How Terrorism Makes Us Feel

Skylar Baker-Jordan | Posted 23.05.2017 | UK
Skylar Baker-Jordan

We're not supposed to admit this, of course, because to say we're scared means the terrorists win. But that's bullshit. The terrorists only win if we cower, and admitting you're frightened or upset isn't cowering - it's brave. And every single time an attack like what happened Monday night in Manchester happens, I'm utterly fucking terrified.
