Just learned about another Labeled Generation, this time an older one.Most are familiar with Millennials. Researchers and popular media use the early 1980s as starting birth years and the mid-1990s to early 2000s as ending birth years, with 1981 to 1996 being a widely accepted defining range for the generation. Most Millennials are the children of baby boomers.
But what comes after them?
Generation Z, colloquially also known as zoomers, is the demographic cohort succeeding Millennials. Researchers and media use the mid-to-late 1990s as starting birth years and the early 2010s as ending birth years. Most members of Generation Z are children of Generation X (the demographic cohort following the baby boomers and preceding the millennials).
Generation Alpha (or Gen Alpha for short) is the demographic cohort succeeding Generation Z. Researchers and popular media use the early 2010s as starting birth years and the mid-2020s as ending birth years. Named after the first letter in the Greek alphabet, Generation Alpha is the first to be born entirely in the 21st century. Most members of Generation Alpha are the children of the Millennials.

Biden belongs to the so-called Silent Generation.The Silent Generation, also known as the Traditionalist Generation, is the Western demographic cohort following the Greatest Generation and preceding the Baby Boomers. The generation is generally defined as people born from 1928 to 1945. By this definition and U.S. Census data, there were 23 million Silents in the United States as of 2019.
I wondered about this as well so I just asked chatgpt. This is what it said. Warning, it's very anticlimactic.But why?
Thanks. I don't regard the info as anticlimactic; they're the kind of details I was hoping to hear.I wondered about this as well so I just asked chatgpt. This is what it said. Warning, it's very anticlimactic.
There are no bridges over the Amazon River primarily due to its vast size, environmental concerns, and the challenges of building in the remote and often inaccessible rainforest region. The Amazon is one of the world's largest and most complex river systems, making bridge construction extremely difficult and expensive. Additionally, the river's course changes frequently, with a wide floodplain and a dense rainforest environment, complicating any construction efforts.Environmental concerns also play a significant role. The Amazon rainforest is a vital ecological area, home to an unparalleled diversity of wildlife and plant species. Building bridges over the river could disrupt delicate ecosystems and contribute to deforestation and habitat destruction.Furthermore, the areas along the Amazon River are sparsely populated, with limited infrastructure. This reduces the immediate need.
