The Oldest Millennials in the World

Pity those born in 1981. Too young for Gen X yet reluctant to be lumped with the most maligned generation in history, they exist in an age group netherworld

REAGAN BABIES What do Beyoncé, Serena Williams, Alicia Keys, Britney Spears, Meghan Markle, Eli Manning, Roger Federer, Ivanka Trump, Amy Schumer, Alexis Bledel, Pitbull and Zlatan Ibrahimovic have in common, other than stardom? They were all born in 1981.

About Newsweek International

VIKTOR ORBAN In early March, Janos Lázár , a senior Hungarian minister, posted a video on Facebook complaining about the lack of “white Christians” in Vienna. Muslim migrants, he warned, were destroying the city, and if someone didn’t do something, they would transform Budapest, Hungary’s capital, in a similar way. “If we let them in…our cities,” Lazar told his followers, “the consequences will be crime, impoverishment, dirt, filth and impossible urban conditions.” Lázár is chief of staff to Viktor Orbán, the Hungarian prime minister, and his post came roughly a month before the country goes to the polls in April. It was a classic move from Orbán, something his Alliance of Young Democrats (known as Fidesz) had done many times before: play to voters’ fears over Islam and immigration.
