• PERFORMANCE OF MILLENNIAL AND Z-GEN EMPLOYEES WHO CAN MULTI-TASK is generally regarded as optimally efficient, but this is arguable according to various studies. Yearly, over 300 million tweets and two-trillion text messages have affected the mental focus and attention span of Americans, basically by shifting attention from boredom over ads that are bombarded to attract or distract from a task at hand, toward something or someone presumably more interesting & pleasurable. Meanwhile, multitasking can result in “time wasted, becoming prone to errors, and slow down of task completion.” One 2,000-adult study found nearly half feeling that ‘deep thinking’ has become a thing of the past, and another study of teenagers found that more media use/ video gaming/ online-time increases both attention and behavioral problems.

  • “MISGUIDED CLIMATE SCIENCE HAS METASTASIZED INTO MASSIVE SHOCK-JOURNALISTIC PSEUDOSCIENCE and become a scapegoat for a wide variety of other unrelated ills. There is no climate emergency or cause for panic and alarm, according to a coalition of over 1,600 international scientists signing a Declaration last month, insisting that Carbon Dioxide is not a pollutant, but rather in fact ‘essential’ to life on earth and favorable to nature, resulting in growth of plant biomass while boosting yields of crops.” Science suggests that the Earth’s climate has varied since inception with the planet experiencing several cold & warm phases. While the last Ice Age ended as recently as 1850, alarmists have been predicting – despite zero statistical evidence – that modern air pollution will “obliterate the sun and cause a new Ice Age by the 21st century,” along with a propaganda narrative that Global Warming is linked to increasing natural disasters along the way (like hurricanes, floods, draughts) and “doomsday scenarios promoted by misguided business marketing agents, politicians, journalists, government agencies and environmentalists.” [EPOCH TIMES – – 8/29/23]
  • ON AVERAGE, THE PRIME YEARS FOR MAKING SMART FINANCIAL DECISIONS ARE SUPPOSEDLY AGE 53 – 54, when financial literacy “reflects accumulated knowledge and experience about money, spending and saving, while key analytic cognitive skills haven’t yet begun to decline.” According to economic researchers, people make fewer mistakes particularly in decisions affecting fees and interest payments. “While those in their 20s are better at absorbing & processing new info and computing numbers (‘fluid intelligence’), the accumulation of facts and knowledge (‘crystallized intelligence’) improves with age over the decades. [WALL ST.

  • BE AWARE THAT A CULTURAL ‘RESET’ IS UNDERWAY, consistent with a pattern over the past five centuries, where societies enter a new Era every fourth generation, as culture evolves and “a ‘Values’ regime propels replacement of old civic order, secular upheaval, and effectively upending any nation’s foundational culture.” Today’s Activist Progressive views have been shaped with little, if any, perspective on life before the Digital World, based predominantly on texts/ tweets/ social media blurbs/ & banners – relating to gender & racial diversity, social consciousness & ‘justice,’ marriage & religious irrelevance, corporate avarice, income inequality, and/or environmental concerns. In addition to global terrorism & wars, historical patterns show that catalysts have consistently been “massive entrenched fiscal & budget crisis and massive disease outbreak. “The likelihood is that sometime before the year 2025, America will pass through a great gate in history, commensurate with the American Revolution, Civil War, and twin emergencies of the Great Depression & WWII.”  Critical perspective from a profound publication – forecast 26 years ago!

 “Since most American schools do not educate about the realities of secular regimes, most students know little, if anything, about the American/ French/ Russian/ Chinese Revolutions, or Nazi death camps, or that 25% of Cambodians were murdered by the Khmer Rouge… Reality is that most genocides were committed by secular regimes that intentionally ignore ‘evil’; this has been kept from young people because Secularism and Big Government are the two pillars of Left-wing ideology.” – DENNIS PRAGER

Retail store theft exceeded $100 billion last year, predominantly from organized crime groups targeting “easily concealable, removable, available, valuable, enjoyable & disposable items, like apparel/ electronics/ health & beauty/ accessories/ footwear. According to a National Retail Federation survey, beyond theft of goods, violence and aggression in stores also increased by 26.5%, triggered by factors including labor shortages and employees trying to enforce Covid regulations like mask mandates.”  [FORBES]
