When a panel of Bloomberg executives gathered at Bentley University’s PreparedU launch event, held at the media giant’s New York headquarters this past January, they emphasized one thing over and over: a college education should do more than just prepare students for jobs.

Today's social juggernauts are reshaping how people interact with one another. So what are the implications for tomorrow? Let's take a glance back to better understand.

Gen X Picks Up Where Boomers Left Off

April 18, 2014

 

By Gordon Plutsky

 

2014 is a big milestone in American demographic history: The last of the Boomers will turn 50.  I’m proud to join Michelle Obama, Rob Lowe, Laura Linney, Sandra Bullock and Johnny Depp as we hit AARP eligibility.  I’m not putting myself in the celebrity category, although most of us 1964’ers do share a youthful appearance and attitude.  (Speaking of AARP, when the application came a few weeks ago, I laughed and tossed it into the recycling bin.  I get the part about the discounts, but it feels like it’s...

Spring is coming? Isn’t it?

Blog Tags:  weather

Snow on the ground yesterday, 19 degrees this morning and the high was near 40. At least the wind is not blowing. The calendar says spring is here but it is hard to tell the last couple of days.

Then I attended the Northeast Association of Fish and Wildlife Agencies conference in Portland where I gave a presentation.
