Then vs. Now: How Much Have Kids Changed in a Generation?

Posted by Angelica on April - 23 - 2012

How Much Have Kids Changed in a Generation

One of the major differences between kids now and kids a decade ago is that most kids have their own cell phone now. Unfortunately, the average kid is also less likely to graduate from high school than his counterpart of ten years ago.

On the bright side, the kids of today are a bit less likely to indulge in either marijuana or cigarette use and to practice safer sex. On average, they earn twice as much money as kids did a decade ago and are more likely to be learning a foreign language. They are also about 50 percent less likely to be holding down a part-time job and are not as likely to have a driver’s license.

Despite the higher high school dropout rate experienced by kids these days, a bigger percentage of them intend on seeking higher education in order to accomplish career goals. SAT scores are higher as well.

Is your job really killing you? You already know the answer to that question. Just look at your face in the mirror. See all those lines and creases around your eyes and mouth. That’s your body’s signal that your job is slowly sucking the life out of you from the inside and leaving a sagging, empty shell behind. Stress in the workplace can affect every fiber of your being, and it doesn’t stop when you punch out.

Job-related stress is responsible for a host of unpleasant disorders and diseases from high blood pressure to anxiety, depression, and more. Unfortunately, people work stressful jobs because they need the paycheck. Few have the opportunity to storm out of the workplace just because the job is causing them diabetes and heart disease. Find ways to reduce the stress in your life, and try not to take your job too seriously before it’s too late.

Acne Awareness

Whether you are an adult or a teenager, suffering from acne is never comfortable and you will undoubtedly wish to remove it as quickly as possible. You may or may not have done research into the causes of acne, so this infographic will aim to provide that information as well as suggest some OTC treatments through which you can get rid of acne and hopefully, get rid of it for good.

Acne outbreaks are usually caused by the accumulation of sebum and old skin cells in clogged pores. The pores then get irritated and become infected, thus causing outbreaks. Inflamed pores will also produce pus, which leads to further inflammation and clogs. Acne can manifest as blackheads, pustules, whiteheads, cysts, and nodules. Armed with the knowledge of what causes acne, you can now proceed to learn about how to get rid of acne.

For some people, acne treatment is simply a matter of developing certain habits and applying good anti-acne gels or creams to their skin. For others with particularly severe acne, they usually have to seek the help of their dermatologist or doctor.

Acne should not become just another part of your daily life, as it can be treated and cured. In fact, with the proper precautions, you can definitely get rid of acne. You are welcome to our site www.BestAcneTreatment.org to learn more about acne treatment.

Save Cash By Thinking Green

 

And here’s 10 more!

  1. Buy in bulk. Purchasing food and supplies in bulk can save money and reduce packaging and expensive car trips
  2. Keep your mobile phone, computers and electronics as long as possible, do you really need to replace your 42″ TV with a 50″ one?
  3. Recycle your old mobile for cash rather than binning it. Many mobile phone recyclers exist now who will pay good money for your old phone.
  4. Do you really need it new? Buy second hand to save money and keep it out the trash
  5. Don’t buy bottled water. It’s expensive and tastes just as good from the tap for free – Take a reusable (not plastic) water bottle when out and about to save money and reduce production of plastic water bottles.
  6. Knock your washing machine down to 30 degrees whenever possible
  7. Solar power is free. Use a washing line to cut out using the expensive dryer
  8. Unplug all your charging cables if you’re not using them, they still draw power
  9. When choosing new clothes, look for those that don’t need to be dry cleaned. Dry cleaning is expensive and uses harmful chemicals
  10. Recycle your old CDs, DVDs and games keeping them out the trash.
