College graduates overwhelmingly believe a college education is worth the money, a new Bankrate Money Pulse survey finds. Eighty-nine percent of respondents with a four-year degree say college was a good investment, the survey shows. That's even as the costs make a deeper and deeper bite. Julia Schemmer, a 19-year-old sophomore at University of California-Riverside, said she received financial aid as a freshman, but it wasn't enough. Generally, the older the graduate, the more likely that he or she will say college was a good investment. About a fifth of the younger millennial grads (21%) say college was not worth it, more than any other age group. But a whopping 97% of degree holders 65 or older say it was a good investment, the survey shows.
America has an obesity problem. Most anyone who trusts modern science will not dispute that point. But as with any societal issue, the question is not so much about what the problem is, but rather what to do about it. Like most other "crises", the easy solution most loudly called for is some sort of intervention from the government, and obesity is no different.
But while government is failing to get kids moving, the private market is quietly getting them off their feet again. Just this week, the new app called Pokemon Go launched for mobile devices, bringing the digital world that millennials grew up with to life. The game allows players to travel their neighborhoods and towns on foot to catch wild Pokemon and train them as their own. The game mixes the elements of the game with real life places, that one must travel to on-foot to play.
