Veteran journalist Carl Hoffman believes he’s solved one of the great mysteries of the 20th century. In 1961 at the age of 23, Michael Rockefeller – son of New York Governor Nelson Rockefeller and a member of one of the richest and most powerful families in America ¬– travelled to remote New Guinea in search of primitive art for his father’s new museum.
Ohio’s “Brain Drain” May Be Easing
A newspaper analysis shows that Ohio may be starting to turn around its “brain drain.”
The Dayton Daily News reports that an analysis of census data shows that Ohio may finally have seen the end of a decades-long trend of losing young adults to other states.
Beginning in 2010, the numbers show, Ohio actually showed an increase in the population of people ages 20 to 34.
The analysis found that the state lost more than 420,000 young adults between 1990 and 2010 – a drop of more than 16 percent. But from July 1, 2010, to last July, the state gained 42,562 young people in that age range. That’s a 2-percent increase.
Experts attribute it to more good job opportunities available in the state.
