As the world is slowly but surely accepting the Millennials generation as the largest demographic of today, young people aged between 24 and 35 are on the go. The most educated generation in history, notorious for their unique lifestyles and rebellious attitude towards the traditional „way of life“, is slowly settling down. Typically, they are doing it their own way – by choosing to move and step out of the comfort zones that Baby Boomers have created. So if you are a Millennial, you are most likely to be educated and to have at least a Bachelor’s degree, and quite likely you plan on moving. So let’s see what the top cities in the world are according to the Millennials.
The notion that air pollution is more than just a topic that environmentalists use to frighten ordinary people was unconvincing to me when I read about it in a textbook, but not when I felt it from my own experience. After spending a couple of weeks in the Czech city of Ostrava at the height of the winter heating season, where I participated in the project of the Faculty of Natural Sciences of Charles University (atmospheric air quality assessment and solid particles concentration measurement), I returned to Prague with acute conjunctivitis. The ophthalmologist, upon examining me, was horrified and asked how I managed to bring myself to such a state. Hearing in response that I had been working in Ostrava, she nodded knowingly and glumly advised me to avoid traveling to that part of Moravia in the future.
We live in the world that is too filled with flattery. It may sound ironic, since modern society is under the constant pressure of stress, not to mention a wide range of trends. So-called positive psychology can be considered as another blindly-followed sweet-talking trend, since its purpose has gone too far. In order to find a more direct route to happiness, people must learn to trust themselves, and also to encourage themselves to roam towards certain goals, without beating themselves up if they slip along the way. The charming face of this fashionable philosophy is why people resort to a self-help concept that advocates “positivity” and offers a variety of lists with rules for a prosperous life.
