'Ok, Boomer' marked as the latest cultural putdown, conflict between younger and older people
Young and older people are not able to take care of themselves properly, blame, and resentment flowing both ways.
'Ok, Boomer' became the latest cultural putdown. Misunderstanding is getting generated across the generation spectrum.
Young people are facing frustration and pressure because of the continuously increasing housing and education costs. Stagnant wages and precarious work is putting the American dream out of reach. They have to reconsider having children because of the high education and medication costs.
Another thing that is the reason for frustration is prioritizing proposals to increase Social Security payments, or long-term care support for older folks who have had a wealth of opportunities and subsidies.
The older recipients are already enjoying their retirement, which is very comfortable. Life has worked out for them, but many of them are not smart enough to understand how fundamentally broken the economic system is for less advantaged younger people who can't get ahead despite their striving and scraping.
In today's world, multiple generations are getting squeezed; try to meet their basic needs.
However, many older adults are trying to help the younger generation by digging deeper into their reserve of time, money, and energy.

Новая модель ŠKODA доступна в автосалонах Ростова.
ŠKODA начал установку кроссовера Karoq. С уходом Yeti у чешских брендов больше нет компактного внедорожника онлайн, но Karok по-прежнему считается преемником Yeti. И такие агенты, как KIA Sportage. Фактически, это прямой конкурент упомянутого выше KIA Selto.
Этот автомобиль имеет большой багажник для своей категории (500 литров) и улучшенную систему стабилизации. Одной из его функций является улучшение проходимости модели за счет более честного распределения тяги между колесами. Игра у модели небольшая, около 170 мм.
В начале года Karoq будет предлагаться клиентам с передним приводом, турбодвигателем 1.4 TSI (150 л.с.) и восьмискоростной гидравлической машиной. Во второй половине года появится полноприводная версия с тем же двигателем и 6-ступенчатым роботом DSG, а также 1,6-литровым двигателем (110 л.с.), механической коробкой передач и оригинальным оборудованием с передним приводом.
В новом году новые модели Hyundai и KIA можно будет увидеть в автосалонах в Ростове.
К 2020 году несколько внедорожников Hyundai и KIA появятся на рынке в ближайшее время. Наиболее перспективным является KIA Seltos, который становится «партнером» бестселлера Hyundai Creta и, по крайней мере, частично повторяет его успех.
Seltos значительно больше Крита и по размеру и концепции соответствует новому ŠKODA Karoq. В отличие от Крита, новость публикуется на Калининградском Автоторе.
Seltos позиционируется как модель роскошного автомобиля. Например, у него более богатый интерьер, более просторные задние сиденья и турбо-двигатель мощностью 177 л.с. в сочетании с предварительно выбранным 7-ступенчатым роботом. Для Celtos 1,6-литровый (121-123 л.с.) и 2,0-литровый (149 л.с.) безнаддувный двигатель также известен на Крите. Гидродинамика с шестью скоростями предлагается как «автоматическая» для более молодых двигателей и как вариатор для более старых двигателей. Фронт или полный.
Также не следует путать двух гигантов Mohave и Telluride, длина которых около 5 метров. Первый - внедорожник, а второй - кроссовер.
