The national poll by Harvard's Institute of Politics of more than 2, people aged 18 through 29 is intended to provide insight into the political views of the youngest U. Vote Now in Urgent Poll Story continues below video. More than half the respondents in the survey, taken between Oct.
The poll also shows 52 percent of those between the ages of 18 and 24 say they would vote to recall Obama. Among young peoplethe number is 47 percent. Grayson pointed out that there appears to be a split among millennials.
Among the findings, year-olds indicate they are less supportive of the president and more politically conservative than year-olds, a position, he said, that has hardened in recent years and could be a "permanent feature" of this generation. Some 55 percent of the survey respondents who reported voting in the presidential election said they had voted for Obama, compared with 33 percent for Romney. Obama's administration also has come under fire from critics at home and abroad who claim it is dealing poorly with the Syrian government over its alleged use of chemical weapons and with Iran over its nuclear ambitions.
They also say the administration has failed to rein in public spending or revive the economy. Some 57 percent of respondents in the Harvard poll said they disapprove of Obamacare, with 40 percent expecting the quality of healthcare to worsen and about half expecting healthcare costs to rise. The Harvard survey respondents spread the blame for Washington's shortcomings beyond Obama and the Democratic party. In terms of job performance, 54 percent said they disapproved of the president, 59 percent disapproved of Democrats in Congress, and a whopping 75 percent disapproved of Republicans in Congress.
Did Ted Kaczynski's Transformation Into the Unabomber Start at Harvard?
Conservative Republicans took a hard line in the fight over October's government shutdown, which was waged over the party's demands to stop the launch of Obamacare. But delays in pay to some public workers, closings of national parks, and reductions in public services only deepened Americans' frustration.
Asked which proposals they would prefer to see enacted to cut the federal deficit, respondents tended to favor increasing taxes for the wealthy and cutting certain types of military spending — including on the nuclear arsenal and the size of the Navy fleet. Seventy-nine percent of millennials said that student debt is a problem for young people in the U. Meanwhile, 70 percent said financial circumstances played an important role in their decisions as to whether to pursue a college education.
More than 70 percent also said they would prefer to see no cuts to education spending on kindergarten through high school, the poll showed.

Harvard officials say they will do something about that. What do you think? It's a change of role for me to be on this side of the Harvard debate, even implicitly, by posting this story on this forum.
I'm still gathering information, so don't attribute any opinions in the article about Harvard to me. March edited March Post edited by tokenadult on March Princetonwannabe replies threads Senior Member. March Interesting that this survey parallels the general reputation of Harvard, and the unscientific Studentsreview.
How much of this is self fulfilling? Harvard students surely are aware of the negative reputation, so perhaps their comments reflect the assumption that things are better elsewhere. FountainSiren - replies 76 threads Member.
Current Harvard students: are you HAPPY?
Who says you need to be happy Maybe happiness is over-rated harvard students couldn't be wrong--I think? I think that an inferior undergraduate education and student unhappiness are leading indicators that show that Harvard will no longer be the 1 prestigious school in the near future.
It's kind of like Oxford and Cambridge. Oxbridge are still considered the top schools in the UK - the best students go there, and a degree from there still holds the prestige. They practically define higher education in the UK. HH05 replies 6 threads Junior Member. The numbers cited are very insignificant. Depending on how the survey was structured, the differences may not be very significant at all.
This it not a BIG deal at all, especially considering that there are four schools that have done worse and that the differences are not that staggering.What feedback do you give? How do you mitigate the damage he inflicts? The whole team suffers because of it. Is the person unhappy in the job? Struggling in their personal life?
Frustrated with coworkers? Give them direct feedback In many cases, toxic people are oblivious to the effect they have on others. If the person is hesitant to reform, figure out what they care most about — the privilege of working from home, their bonus—and put that at stake.
Minor is currently researching toxic doctors and says that early results indicate that some are either unable or unwilling to change. The idea, says Minor, is to protect yourself and the company and to show your employee exactly why they are being let go.
Also focus on basic self-care. One employee, Sharon not her real namea senior marketing manager, was making the rest of the group miserable. Christina also supported the rest of the team.

April edited April in Harvard University. What a day. I was rejected at my top choice Yale - please don't eat me!
Totally unexpected. I preferred and, right now, still do In fact, I've gotten the impression that people are UNhappy at Harvard. My Harvard interviewer basically told me to go to Stanford if I get in which I did - because the people there are so much happier. I love many aspects of it already. But happiness is always going to trump the prestige factor. Current students: Are you happy? If so, why? If not, why not? Is day to day life easy?
I want the good, the bad, and the ugly. April edited April Post edited by Elanorci on April April You should PM me, and we can talk some more but a quick answer to your, question I love it here.
No doubt, it can be challenging but I found that most of those challenges would have been the same if I went to the other schools I was accepted to.
How to Manage a Toxic Employee
As for the prestige factor, don't worry, I was in the same boat. I didn't want to "force" myself to like a school based on nothing but the name.
In the end, I was between Yale, Harvard and my state school and I eventually realized that if I wanted to get over that hump, I would have to visit and live, for a weekend, like the students did. I would ignore all the fuss over the name and what not and just let nature take its course. As for your interviewer saying that you should go to Stanford, which I also got into last year, that's a decision only YOU can make. Really, I love at Harvard. I can tell that depending on the chemistry of the class and the connections, especially that FIRST connection, you make with people and friends, you can either hate it or love it here.
It's all pretty subjective and generalizations are NEVER what you should base your life-changing, essentially choice on. For some people, I am assuming that this is what happened to your interviewer, Harvard didn't match up to expectations.Just this week, I have seen three patients with depression requiring treatment. Treatment options include medications, therapy, and self-care. Self-care includes things like sleep, physical activity, and diet, and is just as important as meds and therapy — sometimes more so.
I am passionate about diet and lifestyle measures for good health, because there is overwhelming evidence supporting the benefits of a healthy diet and lifestyle for, oh, just about everything: preventing cardiovascular disease, cancer, dementia, and mental health disorders, including depression. Diet is such an important component of mental health that it has inspired an entire field of medicine called nutritional psychiatry.
What it boils down to is that what we eat matters for every aspect of our health, but especially our mental health. Several recent research analyses looking at multiple studies support that there is a link between what one eats and our risk of depression, specifically.
One analysis concluded:. One could argue that, well, being depressed makes us more likely to eat unhealthy foods. This is true, so we should ask what came first, the diet or the depression? Researchers have addressed this question, thankfully. Another large analysis looked only at prospective studies, meaning, they looked at baseline diet and then calculated the risk of study volunteers going on to develop depression.
Researchers found that a healthy diet the Mediterranean diet as an example was associated with a significantly lower risk of developing depressive symptoms. So, how should I counsel my patients on diet?
There are several healthy options that can be used as a guide. One that comes up again and again is the Mediterranean diet. Another wonderful resource for folks is the Harvard T. Chan School of Public Health website with an introductory guide to healthy diet. The gist of it is, eat plants, and lots of them, including fruits and veggies, whole grains in unprocessed form, ideallyseeds and nuts, with some lean proteins like fish and yogurt. Avoid things made with added sugars or flours like breads, baked goods, cereals, and pastasand minimize animal fats, processed meats sorry, baconand butter.
No one got fat eating berries or broccoli.Before Ted Kaczynski became the infamous Unabomber, he was a gifted, year-old student at Harvard University. Kaczynski may have been precocious in his intellect, but he was also impressionably young—and it was at Harvard where Kaczynski would be recruited to take part in a three-year-long, potentially abusive psychological experiment.
Kaczynski entered Harvard in and, one year later, was tapped by psychologist Henry A. Murray to take part in a study exploring the effects of stress on the human psyche—a popular area of research during the Cold War. The experiment enlisted 22 Harvard students to write a detailed essay in which they summarized their worldview and personal philosophy.
Then the harsh aspects of the experiment began. The goal was to assess the value of interrogation techniques used by law enforcement and national security agents in the field. Murray is still considered an important researcher and clinician in the field of psychology, and his personality assessments remain a fundamental part of psychological evaluations to this day.
However, his legacy he passed away in has been tarnished somewhat by this study, in which Kaczynski was one of the subjects. But he was subsequently hired as an academic mathematician and, Barber says, "proved an able researcher.
Otherwise, it would be a mistake to exaggerate the importance of this experience, or to see it as a major determinant of his anti-science and anti-technology political views," Barber says. But if you see something that doesn't look right, click here to contact us!

I've read from numerous sources that Harvard students seem to be unhappy and disillusioned with their school, especially when compared to similar schools like Stanford, Yale, and Princeton. Is there any truth to this matter, and if there is, what's the reason?
November edited November Post edited by hmbeast on November Replies to: Why are Harvard students unhappy? November I've heard it has to do with undergrad teaching. More attention goes to grad students than undergrads. You should take them with a grain of salt, but they should give an indication of the negatives of the schools if you see a re-occuring comment, like "classes are to impersonal" or "too many ta's teach the class", things like that.
But what I don't understand is this - don't TAs teach undergrad classes at most schools?
I know there's a few smaller schools where professors teach all of their undergraduate classes but I was under the impression that professors and classes were generally impersonal for most of these elite schools.
