The company Brooklinen sells pricey sheets: its “classic” sheet set for a queen-sized bed costs $129. But that can be steep for millennials, people born between 1982 and 1996, who are a core demographic for Brooklinen, said the company’s co-founder, Rich Fulop. “They want to pay more, they want to upgrade, but they don’t necessarily have the means to do that,” he said
“There was a huge difference between their confidence around what they thought they knew and the reality of what they did know,” Ms Birch said.
She said in a cashless world, with online shopping on the rise, young people were increasingly at risk of financial failure.
The Rise of the Violent Left (thc0655)
In Washington, D.C., the response to that question centers on how members of Congress can oppose Trump’s agenda, on how Democrats can retake the House of Representatives, and on how and when to push for impeachment. But in the country at large, some militant leftists are offering a very different answer. On Inauguration Day, a masked activist punched the white-supremacist leader Richard Spencer. In February, protesters violently disrupted UC Berkeley’s plans to host a speech by Milo Yiannopoulos, a former Breitbart.com editor. In March, protesters pushed and shoved the controversial conservative political scientist Charles Murray when he spoke at Middlebury College, in Vermont.
Silver Cycles and War Cycles (GE Christenson)
The Gulf War and the War on Terror were expensive. National debt at the end of 1990 was $3.3 trillion. Today it is $20 trillion. Much of that debt resulted from the Gulf War, Iraq War 2.0, the war in Afghanistan, War on Terror, and other military actions. The War on Terror caused a spike in silver prices and national debt.
Schiff also points to the risks of future regulation by the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), who recently weighed in on the DAO, calling its sale of DAO tokens equivalent to the sale of unregistered securities. If the broad strokes of that report were imposed on the industry as a whole, the large segments initial coin offering (ICO) market might quickly withdraw.
But many of the tactics come at a price. Some could be viewed as impinging on civil liberties and the constitutionally enshrined rights to free assembly and protest. Others require funding and coordination that is difficult to achieve within the fragmented framework of American policing. A few are as simple as strategically placed blockades that keep the two sides separate. Here are some of the top approaches and how they might — or might not — be deployed in the U.S.
Anybody who’s been near water has probably seen some form of shellfish stuck to rocks or piers, but most of us probably haven’t looked closely at how they do the sticking. In the case of mussels, the animal uses an appendage (called its foot) that extends from its shell to create a web of fibers one-by-one. The result is resilient, since loss of any one fiber will still leave the shell firmly attached. And the fibers are difficult to break and tend to stay stuck on the surface, even though the adhesive the mussel uses is just a mix of simple chemicals and proteins.
A new study from researchers at the Royal Holloway University of London and Guelph University in Canada examined the impact of thiamethoxam, a neonicotinoid sold by Syngenta under the brand names Helix Xtra and Cruiser, on bee colonies. They fed bumblebee queens a quantity of thiamethoxam that replicates the dosage they might encounter in the wild, then tested their egg-laying ability.
