this election isn't for the young


this isn't an election for young people. in fact, i'm not sure there has ever been an election 'for young people'. except maybe the student union elections we see every now and then. and there probably will never be one. there is also no political party for young people.there's one for conservative people, working people, liberal people. people who like green are catered for. there are parties for scotland, wales and ireland. praise god there is one for yorkshire people, and speaking of god... there is even one that claims to be for his fans. the uk even has a party especially designed for racists who blame immigration for the heavy rainfall we occasionally have.but there isn't one for young people. no 'special interest' party for those especially interested in being young?so what ...






arithmetic - mathematical joke regarding three people leaving a house


note that there are $2$ people who enter the house at first. then $3$ people leave the house.the joke probably lies in the fact that the mathematician assumes that there were initially no people inside the house (the others do too), and so then there are: $$2-3=-1\text{ people}$$ in the house at the moment. therefore, if one person enters the house, the amount of people in the house is: $$-1+1=0 \text{ people}$$ thus, the house will be empty.

lgbt people share the things straight people don't understand about them


the world is full of a beautiful mix of people, but unfortunately our differences can sometimes mean we struggle to understand each other.on reddit, people from the lgbt+ community have been sharing the misconceptions heterosexual people sometimes have about them.from the naive to the downright insulting, here are just a few of the examples.   lisegagne via getty images “just because you know another gay person does not mean we’re suited for each other romantically or even as friends.”- hyndmandy “most of us are 100% indistinguishable from straight people, you just notice the ones that aren’t. the stereotypical gay person you see on tv is a small but very vocal minority in the gay community.”- balloonsponge “i’m a lesbian and i constantly have people (always stra...

young people visit downing street to urge the prime minister to listen and take


after six months of working with thousands of young people we finally managed to put together our manifesto. the uk youth voice manifesto consists of young people's future hopes for our country, shares what young people genuinely believe in and most importantly the manifesto truly represents the voices of young people across the uk. after brexit negotiations, young people have felt shut down and suppressed by parliament. all 16 and 17 year olds did not get a say on eu membership and now young people are being excluded from crucial brexit negotiations. our manifesto is based on the principles that all young people should be entitled to a say in how our country is governed and the way in which it is governed. many young people feel that their local mp does not accurately represent their nee.

economy - on a world with differently sized humans, how do i keep wages fair?


you can't be building a world like this, without intending to draw parallels against our own world. and our own world is not fair.if you are aiming for fairness, you are worldbuilding a world of tedium and boringness. in the real world, whatever system you find to allocate fairness will be found unfair by some.people should be paid proportionally to how scarce their skills are!people should be paid the same per year!people should be paid the same per hour!people should be paid the same per gram of bodymass!people should be paid the same per dollar earned for the company!people should be paid the same per year they've worked for the employer!people should be paid the same per... what's fair?fair, as others have said, is obviously an illusion, and in reality people usually try to be fair,...






trump’s first 100 days according to the group that matters most: ‘many people’


president trump speaks at snap-on tools on april 18 in kenosha, wis. (kiichiro sato/ap)president trump won his election thanks in large part to the strong support of white voters without college degrees, a group that stood with trump’s candidacy nearly from the outset and never wavered. but no group has been more supportive of trump, on nearly every issue and comment, than “many people.”who is “many people”? well, it is a group that is a lot of people, presented by trump as evidence that he is reflecting the will of the people without going through such cumbersome details as identifying who they are or pointing to polling that backs up his claims. for example, trump said during a debate in september 2015 that many people — most people, even — apologized to him when they disco...

why are so many successful people arrogant?


why are many successful people arrogant? originally appeared on quora - the place to gain and share knowledge, empowering people to learn from others and better understand the world.answer by jane chin, founder and president of medical science liaison institute (2004-present):i'll answer both your original question (why successful people are arrogant) and the clarifying question (what's the cost of being nice) because they are related in terms of the assumption behind the question.the sequence is as follows:most successful people started out like most ordinary people. most of them do not act arrogantly, and many are probably "nice by default". you go about your day, making your bed (or not), getting along with people (or not), and generally go with the flow of society (or your particul...






7 things people assume about you just by looking at your face : thechive


if you think people aren’t judging you the moment they meet you, you’re wrong. whether you’re on a date or awkwardly talking to someone over a glass of punch at a party, the other person is already determining how likely you are to commit a crime, and how much money you have… and unfortunately our faces usually give us away whether we want them to or not. here are few things people can figure out about us based on how we look. if you’re attractive, people think you’ve got a lot more going for you as wellthe phenomenon is called “the halo effect,” and it means that people tend to assume that good-looking people are also intelligent and more prone to commitment. university of texas psychologist daniel hamermesh studies beauty in the workplace and found that this also means th...






disabled people reveal the things others do that really don't help


even if you have the best of intensions, it’s possible to get it wrong when trying to help someone with a disability. to raise awareness of common mistakes people make, disabled people on reddit have been sharing the things people say and do that unintentionally do more harm than good.from the patronising to the downright insulting, here’s what they had to say.  ozgurdonmaz via getty images 1. “i appreciate it when i tell people i’m deaf and they don’t act like i just told them my dog died.”- 0771602. “this might be obvious to some, but don’t ever just grab someone’s wheelchair and start pushing them around without asking. this would be like grabbing a stranger by the elbow and dragging them where you want them to go. instead, just offer assistance like you would...






five steps for successful goal setting


withmore people having gym memberships than ever before, it's still surprising to see the number of people who don't actually use them. various studies have shown between 50-80% of people stop going to the gym within 5-8 months of signing up. when we then considerthe most common reasons people give up on their fitness goals though, the dropout rate makes more sense. three of those four reasons all relate to people's goals/expectations. no accountability or consequences for quitting means people do not believe in the positives of their goals and their goals don't have any true meaning to them.unrealistic expectations mean the goals have not been broken down into smaller stages, with various "rewards" identified at each stage. a feeling that the workouts are not enjoyab...






what do people often get wrong about being an ally?


what do people often get wrong about being an ally? originally appeared on quora - the place to gain and share knowledge, empowering people to learn from others and better understand the world.answer by lexa michaelides, intersectional feminist, management engineering student at uwaterloo:well, people get a lot of things wrong about being an ally, myself included. i thought about it and here's my take:it's not about you. the whole point of being an ally is to help other people. do not shape your allyship into whatever also benefits you (overtly or subtly). don't raise your voice above the people you are trying to work for. don't ask them to spend their time helping or educating you. do your own share of work and then do more.you are not a hero. you are not special. you don't need or d...






nine reasons why people have clutter


over 10 years as a declutter consultant and personal organiser i've worked hundreds of people in their homes. people in pain, people with too much stuff, people surrounded by chaos, living a state of overwhelm and paralysis. their home stresses them out and they're seeking help (from me) to resolve it. because people open their hearts and share life stories with me, i've come to understand a lot about the common reasons that lead them to end up in the state they do. i'd like to share them here. you or someone you know with a clutter problem might recognise some of them:1. you have a busy lifestrange as it may seem, maintaining your possessions is as much of a job as acquiring them. what if you asked yourself, each time you bought a new pair of shoes: do i have time to look after these?...






'they' say young people are apathetic - they're wrong!


"they" say that young people don't vote. well, they did yesterday. from everything i have read, the 18 - 25 year olds came out in force and their footsteps striding to the ballot box; their pencils scratching their ballot papers and the crinkle of folding paper - has been heard loud and clear across the country in general election 2017."they" say that young people are apathetic. but i say they're wrong. i think young people have always cared. twenty years ago, whilst at university, i became very involved and interested in politics and i was surrounded by people that cared passionately about politics and all sorts of other single issues to boot. now, i'm not saying that all of those people voted and i guess this is the start of the 'young people are apathetic' story. standing befor...






combinations - probability of 2 people being together out of a group of 4


there were 2 people who wanted to be in a group together. those 2 people were in a pool of 4 people. someone would randomly select 2 people in a row and those people would be in a group together. the remaining 2 would also be in a group. what the probability of those 2 people who wanted to be in the same group actually being in the same group?what i triedlets assume that the 2 who want to be together are person a and b respectively. and person c and d are the other 2.the probability of choosing person a and b is $\frac 14 \cdot \frac 13 = \frac 1{12}.$

want more random hookups? hit the gym, not the bar : thechive


“people who drank protein shakes and flexed in the mirror were more than twice as likely to hit on someone while working out. the habit of taking supplements also resulted in exactly twice as many people hitting on others at the gym.even if you haven’t seen someone take a gym selfie in real life, you’ve probably seen one pop up on social media. in fact, people who regularly took gym selfies admitted to making moves on someone else at the gym nearly twice as often as people who didn’t take gym selfies.”it’s certainly discouraging to learn that people who flex in front of the mirror hookup more than those who don’t, but focus less on that and more on the fact that it boils down to them having self-confidence. yes, douchebags might get the girl at the gym as well the bar from ti...






how we're enabling independent travel for the world's 285 million blind people


travelling independently, especially on public transport and through indoor spaces can be a difficult and sometimes impossible experience for vision impaired people. in the uk, nearly half of blind and vision impaired (vi) people would like to leave their homes more. this lack of mobility plays a huge part in the challenges vi people face: they are much more likely than average to be unemployed, live in poverty (two-thirds of them live at or below the poverty line), and suffer from social isolation.globally, there are 285 million blind or vi people. the number of vi people is set to increase significantly as the world's population ages, as vision impairment primarily affects older people. some studies suggest the number of blind people could treble between now and 2050. at the same, time .

relationships - how can i explain to others that i'm not comfortable with the wo


asking people not to use the word "queer" to describe you personally is a completely reasonable thing to do, but i would caution you about asking people not to use it when describing themselves.i understand that some people are uncomfortable with the word, many people have some really rough memories tied to the word being used as a slur against them, and it's understandable that the word still carries those connotations. so if you need to ask someone not to use it to describe you, simply explaining your experience with the word, how it makes you feel, and what words you want them to use instead, should solve the problem for you.i mentioned that you should be cautious about asking other people to not use the word because it's a word that has been somewhat reclaimed or reappropriatedin s...

how to handle a troublesome player even before the game is on the run


this looks to me as if you have quite different expectations for the game than that player. that is ok and valid. in rpgs, there is no absolute right or wrong way of doing things, and as long as you are finding people who want to play that way, everything is fine.for me, personally, having to play a serious campaign with a character made by the gm would be a no-go, but other people might prefer it, because it's less work for them.different people enjoy different kinds of play experiences. some people like to play rpgs as they would play some kind of shooter game: kill everything that moves. some people like to focus on strategy and tactics and like to build the best character they can, statswise. some people enjoy the aspect of playing someone else.from my experience pre-fabricated charac.






how a snap election produced a snap filter


some might wonder how a partnership between the electoral commission and snapchat to produce a geofilter came about. it's simple. to spread the message that people need to be registered to vote to have their say at the general election, we need to inspire people in ways that will resonate with them to take action. for young people, a snap with our registration geofilter sent from a close friend could be just the thing to make them register.we know that around seven million people across the uk aren't correctly registered to vote. that's seven million people who are effectively invisible in our democracy.our research shows that young people are much less likely to be registered to vote than older age groups. in fact, latest figures show that 30% of people aged under 34 aren't registered...






looking for a new job? don’t be boring – signal v. noise


“don’t be boring.”when i askedamanda lannert, ceo of jellyvision, what advice she had for people who are looking to get a job, that’s the answer she gave.as a ceo of a rapidly growing 400-person company, soon to be 500 people, lannert has done her fair share of hiring.“it feels like companies hire people, but in fact people hire people,” she explained. “by and large, recruiters are bored. people play it safe. they commodify themselves into just a bullet-point list of skills and experience.”by not being boring, lannert pointed out how you’ll catch a recruiter’s eye, and make yourself much more likely to land that initial phone call or interview.at the same time, it’s also a great way to assess the fit of the role for you, as a prospective employee. when you show who y...






do people live up to our expectations? – signal v. noise


piotr asks:do you sign up to the adage that people live up to our expectations (both at work and in life?that’s a great question. and my answer today is different than it would have been a few years ago.like many, i used to think people live up to the expectations you set for them. expect them to do well, and that “empowers” them to do well.but really, isn’t that wildly egotistical? that it’s your expectations that determine if someone else does good work? perhaps with a child this makes sense, but i don’t think it applies to well formed adults.people do great work because that’s the kind of work they want to do. they care about the work, they care about themselves, they care about the people they’re working with, and they care about the people they’re doing the work for....

do i think toddlers should be told about trans people? yes, and here's why. #wee


do you remember the first time that somebody told you about cisheterosexual people? when somebody expressly sat you down and told you about the existence of people who live as one gender and love another gender. i don't mean the birds and the bees, or any of the other endearingly british euphemisms for "the sex talk", but all the stages that go before you ever need to care about somebody's genitals. i'm willing to bet that nobody ever did because you just lived in the world and some things were taken as read. at 2, 3, 4, 15, 16, 17, 18, there was this idea that the world was only one way - if you're lucky and live in an area where multiculturalism is real, you might understand that some people have different skin pigmentation to you, that some people are tall, or short, or bigger, or...






july 7: carriage horses, affordable housing and 'hamilton'


a horse is a horse, of course richmond hill: why is it that some people are so insistent on banning carriage horses? almost every day we read about hit-and-run drivers who have killed someone, and it doesn’t bother those people. why don’t they try to ban cars? but if on a rare occasion a horse gets spooked by a car, they make a big deal of it. aren’t most people working people? if a horse is working for his hay and making a living for his owner and giving enjoyment to people riding in his carriage, what is the matter with that? these horses are better taken care of, probably, than some people take care of their children — just look at the stories of the deaths of some of these beautiful children due to abuse in their families. why don’t the opponents put their ou...






calm down, your fetish isn't all that weird


role-playing requires that you not only have your sexual encounter, but you make it an improv smut routine at the same time. and sure, probably some people are happy to weave in and out of the fantasy as the mood strikes, but some people don't. some people have a uniform and a personality shift and appropriate props and goddamn, how do you keep your boner geared up for fun after all this work?luckily for those into it, some people do maintain that bonerization. and some people are willing to commit to that level of effort for a partner but man, it can't be easy. if you want your partner to pretend they're mrs. ochmonek and you're alf and the only way you can get back to melmac is with a pork-fueled spaceship ride, your partner better be super turned on by alf. but let's be real: they ...






don't die with your masterpiece still inside you!


you may have heard the saying that most people die with their symphonies, novels and great works of art still inside them. how sad is that? i mean seriously, what a waste right?! it really troubles me to see this happen in people all the time, it's like they go along blissfully unaware that they're gonna die. listen to me people, we only have a finite amount of time here! please don't let insecurity and fear stop you from sharing your gifts with the world.when we're kids we have so much wonder and fascination, we experiment and express ourselves in all kinds of ways without fear or self doubt. all too soon this amazing gift gets dampened down because maybe it doesn't match what other people think is normal or acceptable. as we grow up we take on layers and layers of other people's in...
