So says a new report from WalletHub that looks at where being a millennial is most fitting to budgets and lifestyles.Overall, WalletHub ranked the District of Columbia as the top place for millennials. Washington, D.C., ranked first overall in education and health, quality of life, and civic engagement. It also has the highest percentage of millennials already living there (though the number was not provided) and ranked 16th overall in economic health. Iowa and West Virginia offer the cheapest housing for millennials, according to WalletHub; Hawaii and California the highest. West Virginia was also second on the list of states with the highest percentage of millennial homeowners. One of the biggest issues millennials face, of course, is money. “Despite their trillion-dollar purchasing power and higher educational attainment, millennials are economically worse off than their parents,” the report stated. The reasons have to do with the financial crisis a decade ago.“Millennials have come of age and entered the workforce in the shadow of the Great Recession, which has significantly reduced their job prospects and earning potential for decades to come,” according to the report. “By one estimate, millennials today earn 20 percent less than Baby Boomers did at the same age.”That makes D.C. a little more of a question mark if money truly is a big concern. Though the district offers the highest average earnings for millennials, it also ranked 43rd overall in affordability. On the other hand, North Dakota, ranked number two on WalletHub’s list, was first overall in affordability and economic health. It also ranked ninth in quality of life, has the second-highest percentage of millennials, and the features lowest rate of unemployed millennials.Cold climes, in general, ranked high on the list. Minnesota, Massachusetts, Wisconsin, Colorado, and South Dakota, in fact, all ranked in the top 10.Texas, a popular state for millennials to make a home, ranked the second-most-affordable state for young Americans. The tradeoff is that, while the state rated well on quality of life and economic health, it ranked almost at the bottom for civic engagement, education, and health. That said, Texas has the lowest percentage of millennials suffering from depression. Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days agolast_img read more

Heated 2nd half run propels Miami to romp of Pistons

Ginebra beats Meralco again to capture PBA Governors’ Cup title Minus Kevin Durant, Warriors stop Rockets’ 9-game win streak Rogue cops marked as Gamboa’s targets in his appointment as PNP chief Andre Drummond fouled out with 6:30 left and finished with five points and nine rebounds — snapping his run of 19 consecutive double-doubles, which left him tied with Bob Lanier for the Pistons’ all-time record streak in that department.It wasn’t Drummond’s night.It wasn’t the Pistons’ night in any way. They shot 36 percent, got outrebounded 51-36 and were 8 for 37 from 3-point range — 1 for 17 in the second half. It went down as Detroit’s second-worst loss of the season, topped only by a 37-pointer at Indiana on Dec. 28.“For two games in a row now, we didn’t come out in playoff mode,” Pistons coach Dwane Casey said. “There’s nothing schematically. There’s nothing X-and-O wise. It’s our approach. We have to understand at this time of year … the only thing you can do is scrap and play hard.”TIP-INSPistons: Detroit hadn’t lost a quarter by 25 points since Oct. 30, 2010. … Drummond was looking to join Kevin Love (53), Dwight Howard (separate streaks of 33 and 20), Griffin (27) and Russell Westbrook (23, earlier this season) as players in the last decade with 20 straight double-doubles.Heat: Miami opened on an 8-0 run, its best to start a game this season. … It was Miami’s 600th sellout at AmericanAirlines Arena — the last 413 of those coming consecutively — and 900th home sellout overall. … The Heat celebrated Pride Night, and the national anthem before the game was performed by the South Florida Gay Men’s Chorus.EIGHT IS ENOUGHThere have been four instances of a team holding another to eight points or less in a quarter this season. Miami is responsible for three of them. Houston held Chicago to seven in the third quarter on Nov. 3 — and the rest of the list is all Heat. Miami held the Los Angeles Clippers to eight points in the fourth quarter on Dec. 8, and kept the Milwaukee Bucks to that many in the first quarter on Dec. 22.WADE BLOCKS View comments Nadine Lustre’s phone stolen in Brazil MOST READ “Our starting lineup has had some good starts and some play that’s been trending in the right direction,” Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said. “But that was as inspiring as they’ve been.”Blake Griffin scored 13 points for Detroit, which got 11 from Wayne Ellington. Detroit missed its first 11 shots of the third quarter, eight of them from 3-point range.The Pistons have now dropped consecutive games for the first time since Jan. 25 and 29 — and both were blowout losses, with this one on the heels of a 103-75 rout in Brooklyn on Wednesday.“It’s about our mental fortitude and coming out and having a better mindset at the beginning of games, myself included,” Griffin said. “I’m not excluding myself from that at all. If we have any fight about us at all we’ll come out and rectify that.”Miami (32-35) is still No. 8 in the East, now two games ahead of No. 9 Orlando and two games back of No. 7 Detroit.ADVERTISEMENT Tom Brady most dominant player in AFC championship historycenter_img Eugenie Bouchard’s bid for Australian Open spot ends in qualifying SEA Games 2019: Philippines clinches historic gold in women’s basketball PLAY LIST 05:02SEA Games 2019: Philippines clinches historic gold in women’s basketball02:43Philippines make clean sweep in Men’s and Women’s 3×3 Basketball06:27SEA Games 2019: No surprises as Gilas Pilipinas cruises to basketball gold02:14Carpio hits red carpet treatment for China Coast Guard02:56NCRPO pledges to donate P3.5 million to victims of Taal eruption00:56Heavy rain brings some relief in Australia02:37Calm moments allow Taal folks some respite03:23Negosyo sa Tagaytay City, bagsak sa pag-aalboroto ng Bulkang Taal01:13Christian Standhardinger wins PBA Best Player award Ginebra beats Meralco again to capture PBA Governors’ Cup title Japeth Aguilar wins 1st PBA Finals MVP award for Ginebra Will you be the first P16 Billion Powerball jackpot winner from the Philippines?

Michigan legislators consider driverless car legalization

A new Senate bill to amend the Michigan vehicle code calls for the approval of a system that enables “the motor vehicle to be operated without any control or monitoring by a human operator.”It would be the first state law that allows auto manufacturers to test cars without a safety driver inside. It would also change the law so if an autonomous car crashes, it is the manufacturer’s fault.See Also: Michigan approves millions for autonomous car testing facilityManufacturers would be able to decide what parts of the car a human can control. In the interim between semi-autonomous and driverless, we may see manufacturers give control of the brakes and steering wheel, in the event of a system failure or unexpected road changes.The law also wants the same self-driving legalization to cross over into the ride-hailing and shuttle industry. That would allow Uber, which deployed its self-driving Volvo SUVs in Pittsburgh this week, to drive passengers without a safety driver inside.Michigan won’t ride shotgunMichigan legislators want to continue to be a leader in self-driving and automation, which could provide cities like Detroit with thousands of new jobs. Toyota, Hyundai, Ford, GM, and Faraday Future have all started testing self-driving cars in the state.Two years ago, most said it would be 10 years until self-driving cars are on the road. Now, we are seeing 2018 projects from nuTonomy to launch a shuttle service in Singapore; same with Baidu in China, and Ford, BMW, and GM are aiming for a 2021 driverless car launch.The surge in research, development, and deployment has forced cities and states to begin the process of legalizing the technology.

Conversation with a Dietitian: Diet, Nutrition, Selective Eating, and Young Children with Autism

first_imgby Jamie Pearson, PhDDuring our webinar “Yuck! I don’t eat that!” we addressed a number of questions and misconceptions about diets and eating habits among young children with autism. We asked Dr. Seema Agrawal to share her expertise in addressing some of these misconceptions.  In the video below Dr. Agrawal answers the following questions:What trends have you noticed over the years in the increased diagnosis of autism and how that relates to diet and nutrition?Have you seen parents that are more in tune to what their children are eating and has that impacted diet and behavior for children on the spectrum?Can you explain what gluten-free, casein-free, and dairy-free diets might look like? From your experience and research, what impacts might these types of diets have for children and their families?What would you say to a parent if they have a child who is struggling with trying new foods and engaging in tantrum behaviors during mealtime? What recommendations might you provide for those parents?What would you say to parents if their child complains of a tummy-ache or if they’re not feeling well when they’ve tried a new food?How would you respond to questions about limited diet in children?  For example, “My child only wants to eat chips, white rice, and pasta! What do I do about this?”Do you have any specific suggestions that we can provide for military families who are supporting children on the spectrum?What final advice would you give to parents? Dr. Seema Agrawal is a registered dietitian and has more than twenty years of clinical experience in the field of nutrition. Her areas of research include the quality of life in individuals with disabilities. She is passionate about nutrition and feeding concerns for children with autism because her daughter was diagnosed with autism at the age of two and due her sensory needs, found it difficult to eat food.last_img read more

BAHAMAS Energy Conference opens at Baha Mar

first_imgFacebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp#Bahamas, January 30, 2018 – Nassau – Diversification of fuels, a comprehensive regulatory framework, the introduction of renewable energy sources, a new generating plant and green island project are among the strides the Bahamas Government has made in the energy sector.  The Hon. Desmond, Minister of Works, underscored that notwithstanding the country’s challenges it has and continues to make “incremental” advances in this area.Minister Bannister addressed the opening of the 18th Annual Platts Caribbean Energy Conference, Thursday, January 25th, 2018 at Grand Hyatt Baha Mar.  The two-day event focuses on key issues facing the Caribbean energy sector.Topics include: Market Structure and Stakeholder Alignment, Financing for Small Countries, Regional Demand, Fuel Conversion Viability, Renewable Energy, Managing Distributed Generation and Integrated Resource Plans.  A panel discussion and case studies also comprise the conference agenda.  There is a diverse range of speakers on the agenda including Darnell Osborne, Chairman, Board of Directors, Bahamas Power and Light.In his welcome, Minister Bannister noted the following as the  “fundamental” importance of the conference: the renewal of contacts industry-wide, the discussion and analysis of critical issues of mutual interest, and the sharing of innovative ideas with colleagues from diverse backgrounds from around the world.Minister Bannister said The Bahamas is currently ensuring the security of its energy supply through the diversification of fuels even as it continues to modernize the energy infrastructure.  In this regard, he said a proposal is in place to remove the price volatility with a generation mix that is 100% based on fossil fuel.“With the introduction of tri-fuel generation (liquid natural gas, diesel and heavy fuel oil), The Bahamas will have the flexibility of selecting its fuel based on any number of reasons including price.“We also continue to focus on the development of a comprehensive governance/regulatory framework to effectively support the advancement of the energy sector to be effectively able to facilitate energy conservation and efficiency through the introduction of renewable energy sources such as solar, ocean energy, biofuels, waste to energy and where possible, wind.”He said it is anticipated that a new state-of -the-art generating plant will soon be constructed with the best in class efficiencies for single cycle power generation.  He told the audience that the new facility will improve the generation capacity, modernize the plant, and provide newer technologies together with higher levels of energy conservation and improved efficiencies when compared to existing assets.Minister Bannister remarked that cost effective, progressive ideas for creating and installing renewable energy resources are “critical” to The Bahamas.“Every year we face the threat of hurricanes that may impact the vibrancy of life in our many islands.  Finding a niche in the spectrum of opportunity will be of great value to our country.“We have the perfect environment to foster small scale renewable generation in our many Family Islands, and we embrace this emerging technology to assist in the further development and modernization of our energy infrastructure as we seek to improve our conservation and efficiency capabilities.”He told the delegates that the nation’s challenges provide great opportunity for those who are able to propose innovative, enterprising and dynamic ideas for solutions and he is certain officials will be pleased to engage in meaningful discussion with them.  As an archipelago, practical energy solutions must be provided to numerous islands, all diverse, and each in differing stages of development.“There is no magic formula that that provides an answer to every need. We will, therefore, listen with interest to the various presenters, and consider many of the ideas that you propose as we seek to make decisions that will impact the lifestyles of our residents for decades to come.”S&P Global Platts is the leading independent provider of information, benchmark prices and analytics for the energy and commodities markets.
