Nostalgia Items Lead Google Searches Among Baby Boomers

The nostalgia trend is still going strong, according to a new Coventry Direct report.
Coventry Direct, a life insurance policy educational platform, released a report looking back to the childhoods of Baby Boomers during the Sixties and Seventies, focusing on the items that are still reigning in popularity today. The company looked at Google Trends data to determine the results.
Nationwide, the most popular nostalgia item recorded was vinyl records, followed by Polaroid cameras, station wagons, typewriters and TV antennas. Other items that ranked popular throughout the country were baseball cards, phone operators, drive-in movie theaters, five-and-dime stores and Sears catalogues.
These items’ resurgence in popularity can also be attributed to Millennials’ and Gen Z’s affinity toward nostalgia and vintage items.
The report also looks at the most popular TV shows from the Sixties and Seventies, with “All in the Family” receiving the top spot. The show is followed by “Dragnet,” “School House Rock,” “I Love Lucy” and “Leave It to Beaver.”

‘Power’ Recap – Season 5, Ep. 9: There’s a Snitch Among Us

The father/son dynamic unfolds in curious ways, and Angela’s clock may have run out for real this time. Death, deceit and deals make the headlines in this week’s episode of Power.

The episode beings with a grizzly TV news obituary for fallen gangsta Kanan Stark, as reporters and the community try to make sense of the quadruple murder from a known felon. As Tariq watches the news, he can hear the commotion from the living room, where Tasha, Ghost and Tommy discuss how the Kanan setup unfolded.

Ghost is upset that Tasha went behind his back, and put Tariq in danger. Tasha is upset that Kanan wasn’t the main target to frame from the beginning. Tommy is there to provide peanut gallery level humor and ad-libs. Tariq interrupts the quarrel to take credit for Kanan’s murder. He didn’t divulge the true danger in the plan and knew the only way out was for Kanan to die. He remains indignant towards Ghost for lying about his past, and reiterates that he’s a real g now, a school won’t change him, and Ghost needs to put him on to game or get out of the way. Needless to say, Ghost didn’t oblige. Tariq ends up ditching school to meet with Vincent, accept condolences for Kanan’s death, and continue the drug business on a trail basis. Vincent agrees, and also puts Tariq in contact with a good fake ID connect who supplies Tariq with a new identity “Erick Stark” so he can pickup Kanan’s ashes from the police. The adventures of “Street Tariq” have just begun.

Living Among Men

I can’t imagine being a woman living among men. It sounds horrible. For starters, there’s a stat that 20% of women in college will be sexually assaulted. Apparently it is dangerous for women to be around men … in general.

Contrast that with being a guy. When I encounter a dangerous situation, my first thought is to feel sorry for my future attacker. I’m smallish, so I calculate that once I get him down I’ll have to finish the job so he doesn’t get up again. I feel sorry for my would-be attacker even before I kill him in my imagination.

I didn’t say I manage risk well. I’m just saying I don’t feel as if I am in physical danger from other humans, at least in normal situations. That’s just one advantage of being a guy.

As a man, I have no memory of ever being afraid just because I was alone and in the wrong place. And I lived in a high-crime area in San Francisco for years. I figured my worst-case scenario was getting mugged and losing my decoy wallet and the $ 20 I kept in it. But I only got mugged on the street once. And my apartment only got ransacked and robbed once. My Plymouth Colt, parked on the street, was less lucky, losing its driver-side window and stereo three times. It was that sort of neighborhood. Still, I never felt I was in great danger. I can’t imagine how the women living in that neighborhood felt. That must have been scary.

I belong to a gym, and I noticed that men are able to look up, and look around, and generally enjoy the visual totality of the room they are in. But women have to look down, or at a fixed spot, to avoid eye contact with the men in the gym. I assume any show of friendliness results in unwanted conversations and a ruined workout. If I were a woman, I would never go to a gym if I could not make eye contact with the other people. What must that be like? I can’t even imagine.

If I were a woman, I would feel like a victim, or potential victim, 24-hours a day. I guess people can get used to anything, but I’m glad that isn’t on my list of things to worry about.

My question for the men: Do you ever feel in physical danger from other people?

My question for women: How often are you afraid of danger (from men) during a normal day?

Update: On a related topic, I favor legal gun ownership as a psychological defense against the health stress caused by the bullies, sexual offenders, and psychos living among us. I acknowledge the trade-offs and risks of legal gun ownership and regret every unnecessary gun casualty. But on the plus side, I never want to feel afraid of anyone whose address I can find. That country doesn’t work for me.

I wonder what the rate of bullying is in England compared to America. If we don’t know that difference, and why, then the math of gun control is not yet complete. Bullying ruins lives too. I’m not saying that should be the single biggest factor in gun control, but without that data, how can you form a complete opinion?

Game of Thrones meets The Walking Dead in this post-apocalyptic zombie series. Thousands of years after a zombie apocalypse wiped out the majority of humans, the world is a very different and harsh place. It's safest to live behind the fortified walls of the Kingdom of Golden Rock, or it least it had been. Rumors of an army of dead led by a man calling himself The Scholar have proven true, and even the most secure cities are no match for his undead soldiers. The Scholar's goal is to crush the world of the living, but he also wants to capture a simple baker named Saffi, though no one seems to know why. Saffi's father vows to protect his daughter, and flees The Scholar's path, only to fall prey to other evils of the world outside the walls. In just one day's time, Ward and Saffi's lives will be forever altered, and the secret about why The Scholar wants her will be revealed.

Drake, Dr. Dre & Pharrell Among Several Stars With Radio Shows On Beats 1

Tech giant Apple has already conquered the worlds of smartphones and moving into the realm of wearable devices. The next stop for the company and its Apple Music arm is the launching of its free radio service Beats 1, which will feature some big celebrity names as hosts of their own programs.

This coming Tuesday, BBC Radio 1 DJ Zane Lowe will spearhead Beats 1, which is a free, streaming Internet radio station platform that will blast across smartphones, laptops, and other smart devices. The New York Times profiled Lowe and examined parts of his upcoming venture, while announcing some of the big names that are set to have their own stations such as Drake, Dr. Dre, Pharrell, Jaden Smith and several other stars.

More from the Times:

The new gig also puts Mr. Lowe, 41, in the middle of the music industry’s latest battleground: streaming. Beats 1 is part of a revamped music strategy for Apple, which revolutionized the music world with iTunes and the iPod but lately has sat on the sidelines as upstarts like Spotify, Pandora and SoundCloud lure listeners by making it easy to play songs online.

Last year, Apple paid $ 3 billion for one of those upstarts, Beats, and this month the company unveiled a multifaceted new service, Apple Music, which in addition to Beats 1 includes a subscription streaming service and a media platform for artists called Connect. It has signed a gaggle of celebrities to do shows on Beats 1, among them Pharrell Williams, Drake, even Elton John. Yet the mixed reaction to Apple’s plans — including a complaint by Taylor Swift over royalties that led to a remarkable turnaround by Apple — shows how volatile the streaming music market is.

Dr. Dre’s show will be, fittingly, titled “The Pharmacy,” while Lowe, Hot 97’s Ebro Darden, and  Julie Adenuga will have weekday anchor duties on Beats 1.
