Where Bugs Bunny character probably got his start

I’ve always enjoyed Bugs Bunny, but there’s a character with a small role in this MGM cartoon, that looks like the early version of Bugs Bunny when he debuted in 1938. One reason for the might have been because Rudolf Ising and Hugh Harman, a director of this MGM movie, went on to created the Looney Tunes and Merry Melody series at Warner Brothers.

Clearer insight into the impact of millennials on the demographics of the U.S.

A lot is said about millennials, but there were two things in this article by Pew Research that I don’t recall reading before. The first is that 15% of the millennial population numbers includes people not born in the U.S. The number of millennials born in the U.S. was 10 million less than the number of U.S-born baby boomers. The second is that the group after the millennials, which Pew currently calls post-millennial, had more born in the U.S. than millennials. We’ll probably start hearing more about the post-millennial generation as soon as better name is found.
