by Lindsey Pollak - Jan, 2012
Could anything be more fundamentally American than the right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness? Probably not. But the definition of that last, elusive word — happiness — seems to be changing dramatically as the Millennial generation enters adulthood. Ask your parents or grandparents to define happiness and they’ll surely talk about love, friends, and family. Next, they’ll probably mention succeeding in their c...

We remember being asked, “What do you want to do when you grow up?” when we were younger – too young to really know what to say. Admit it — was “superhero” on your list? Certainly, it’s a valuable question to consider after high school and upon graduating from college. It makes sense for anyone laid off of a job to re-visit...

Think of Coca Cola. Do you have a picture of a can of Coca Cola clearly in your mind? What do you see? Red and white/silver aluminum can with distinctive lettering. Now picture a glass of coke, just an ordinary glass with a dark colored beverage inside. It could be Coke, but it could also be Pepsi; it could even be root beer.
