Millennials lean more on parents

first_imgby: Hadley MalcolmMillennials aren’t moochers – it’s just a lot harder for them to become financially independent at the same pace their parents did, a new survey says.Both Millennials and their parents agree on that, according to a USA TODAY/Bank of America Better Money Habits survey of 1,000 Millennials, 18-34, and 1,005 parents of Millennials.Today’s young adults are three times as likely to say they got a lot of financial help from their parents when they were starting out, compared to what their parents say they got at the same age – 36% vs. 12% – the survey finds. And 40% of Millennials say they still get money from their parents; the majority are younger Millennials, 18-25, but 22% of 26-34 year-olds say they receive financial help. Even among Millennials who are married or living with a partner, a fifth continue to get help paying for things.“A lot of today’s Millennials are dealing with a lot of financial factors that their parents, and certainly adults in America, did not have to contend with a generation or two ago,” says Lynnette Khalfani-Cox, an author and personal finance expert who runs the site askthemoneycoach.com. continue reading » 5SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblrlast_img read more

Cricket News Steve Smith Retains No.1 ICC Rankings, Says ‘Gave It All’ In Ashes 2019

first_img For all the Latest Sports News News, Cricket News News, Download News Nation Android and iOS Mobile Apps. New Delhi: Steve Smith made a brilliant return to international cricket 18 months after he had hit rock-bottom personally and professionally following the ball-tampering scandal in Cape Town. After being greeted with boos at the start of the England summer in May, Smith went off to a standing ovation after the end of the Oval Test. The right-hander made a strong comeback in the Test arena by smashing 774 runs at an average of 110 with three centuries and three fifties. Smith notched up 10 consecutive fifty-plus scores against England and his batting in the series has been simply phenomenal. Smith averages 64.56 after 68 Tests, second only to Bradman in the all-time list.Bradman himself averaged a mind-boggling 99.94 in his 52-Test career. Both Smith and Pat Cummins played key roles in helping Australia retain The Ashes. The Ashes culminated with a 135-run victory for England in the fifth and final Test and the series ended in a 2-2 draw. Smith’s scores of 80 and 23 in the two innings in the final Test helped him remain at 937 rating points. Cummins too is well clear of other bowlers as he enjoys a lead of 57 points over second-placed Kagiso Rabada after finishing as the top wicket-taker with 29 scalps. India’s Jasprit Bumrah is in third place.Speaking about his achievement, Smith said the first innings century in Edgbaston, in which Australia were reeling at 122/8 was his favorite knock. His twin centuries helped Australia breach fortress Edgbaston as they won for the first time in 18 years. Also Read | Steve Smith Falls For His Lowest Ashes 2019 Score, Yet Registers A New World Record”The first Test match, as we know, is always incredibly important in an Ashes series and to sort of pull the team out of a bit of trouble at the time and give me that confidence straight up that I could slot back in and perform, that gave me a lot of confidence. It was a long 18 months out of the game and I’ve got a lot of people to thank, in particular my wife,” Smith said. Also Read | Steve Harmison’s ‘Cheat’ Jibe At Steve Smith Laughable: Peter SiddleSmith said he appreciated the reaction from the crowd in London, although he was disappointed not to have ended the series with a flourish. “It was a nice reception as I walked off. It would have been nice if I’d had a few more runs under my belt in this game. I’ve given it my all since I’ve been here for the last four-and-a-half-months in every Test match that we’ve played and I didn’t have much left to give today. I’m pretty cooked to be honest, mentally and physically. I’m looking forward to a nice couple of weeks’ rest now before getting into the Australian summer,” Smith remarked.last_img read more


first_imgDavid’s anchor! Set to be brought ashore againA DONEGAL man caught up in a ball of red tape over a simple gesture for his town has won his battle to put an historic anchor on display there.David McGloin was hailed a hero after raising a century-old anchor from the muddy waters off Rathmullan.But within days his efforts to bring it ashore had him caught in a massive legal battle. And at one stage he was threatened with a fine and imprisonment by heritage bosses in Dublin.David however decided to prove who owned the anchor – and set about getting the permission of Britain’s Royal Navy.The six-tonne anchor was made by the company Hingley Hetherton in 1908 – the same company which made the anchor for the Titanic just a few years later.And this monster was used for ships from Britain’s Royal Navy which used the pier in Rathmullan during World War One. David, from the Sheephaven Sub-Acqua club, spotted the anchor two years ago whilst working on helping gardai during a search of the area.However he was threatened with legal action unless he returned the anchor to the waters of Lough Swilly – so he did.“I got in touch with the Royal Navy and I went to the North to see a navy commander to discuss the anchor,” David told Donegal Daily.“He was shocked that I had been threatened with legal action and the Royal Navy has now given me the rights to it.“I’ve tucked it away under the sea so it should be easy enough to get it out again. “So the anchor will be back on dry land shortly and it will be put on display in Rathmullan.“I think everyone will be happy with the decision. Good to see common sense prevail – in the end.”VICTORY!
