Joseph asks…

What is the difference b/t my generation and the generation during WWII?

I’m writing a paper on how my generation is very different from the WWII generation.

To describe the WWII gen. I’m using the raising of the flag at Iwo Jima and the men to describe the mentality of people during this time.

To describe my generation I wanted to include are ability to think outside the box and ow we have many ideas. However are need for ‘change’ and rash decisions have unforeseen consequences.

So if you have ideas are details on any subjects you think might help feel free to input!

John answers:

Below are a few common characteristics of the WW2 generation:

Hardworking: Raised by turn-of-the-century farmers, Traditionalists brought a strong work ethic into the factories of industrialized society. Traditionalists grew up during lean times and consider work a privilege. This generation believes you earn your own way through hard work. Traditionalists are willing put in long, grueling hours to get ahead in their legal careers.

Loyal: Traditionalists are civic-minded and loyal to their country and employer. Unlike younger generations Generation Y and Generation X, many Traditionalists worked for the same employer their entire life and are less likely to change jobs to advance their careers than younger generations.
Submissive: Raised in a paternalistic environment, Traditionalists were taught to respect authority. Traditionalists are good team players and generally don’t ruffle any feathers or initiate conflict in the workplace.

Tech-Challenged: Of all four generations in today’s workplace, the Traditionalists are slow to change their work habits. As a whole, they are less technologically adept than the younger generations. As technology evolves and changes the practice of law, Traditionalists may struggle to learn new technology and work processes.

Traditional: Traditionalists value traditional morals, safety and security as well as conformity, commitment and consistency. They prefer brick-and-mortar educational institutions and traditional lecture formats to online, web-based education. In the legal workplace, they favor conventional business models and a top-down chain of command.

Below are a few common traits that define Generation Y:

Tech-Savvy: Generation Y grew up with technology and rely on it to perform their jobs better. Armed with BlackBerrys, laptops, cellphones and other gadgets, Generation Y is plugged-in 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. This generation prefers to communicate through e-mail and text messaging rather than face-to-face contact and prefers webinars and online technology to traditional lecture-based presentations.

Family-Centric: The fast-track has lost much of its appeal for Generation Y who is willing to trade high pay for fewer billable hours, flexible schedules and a better work/life balance. While older generations may view this attitude as narcissistic or lacking commitment, discipline and drive, Generation Y legal professionals have a different vision of workplace expectations and prioritize family over work.

Achievement-Oriented: Nurtured and pampered by parents who did not want to make the mistakes of the previous generation, Generation Y is confident, ambitious and achievement-oriented. They have high expectations of their employers, seek out new challenges and are not afraid to question authority. Generation Y wants meaningful work and a solid learning curve.

Team-Oriented: As children, Generation Y participated in team sports, play groups and other group activities. They value teamwork and seek the input and affirmation of others. Part of a no-person-left-behind generation, Generation Y is loyal, committed and wants to be included and involved.

Attention-Craving: Generation Y craves attention in the forms of feedback and guidance. They appreciate being kept in the loop and seek frequent praise and reassurance. Generation Y may benefit greatly from mentors who can help guide

Susan asks…

What is the difference between Creatine and Steroids?

I’m writing a paper for school and needed to know the main differences between Creatine and Steroids. Where can you buy each? And what are the pros and cons of each?

John answers:

They are far from each other.

Creatine is part of our daily diet in red meats and is used by the body in anaerobic respiration (what you do in weight lifting). The body breaks down creatine into creatine phosphate and then uses the creatine phosphate to create ATP (used for energy). The theory is that if you supplement your body with creatine, it will allow you to get those extra couple reps in at the end of each set. Personally, I notice a difference in strength with and without creatine. The myth that you lose all strength if you stop creatine is false. You will still retain any muscle you built.

The negative side effect of creatine is kidney damage or failure due to excess creatine in the bloodstream- unlikely. This can be easily avoided by proper hydration. They say drink two gallons of water, but if you do that, you will be peeing every 10 seconds. I recommend that if your urine is clear or mostly clear, you are fine. The issue is when it becomes dark due to poor hydration and creatine supplementation, and that is not fun for your kidneys.

There are tons of creatine products out there. I would recommend using Con-Cret (creatine HCl) because theoretically it absorbs the best. If you want a pre-workout supplement, go with Muscle Pharm Assault because it contains Con-Cret and other types of creatine. They can be bought at any health food store. I recommend because they have the cheapest prices (way better than GNC, etc.) and fast shipping.


Steroids are bad. They are synthetic steroid structures that act similar to testosterone and increase protein synthesis in the muscles. Sure they will result in fast muscle gains, but with the cost, legal liability, and negative side effects, steroids are clearly not worth the risk.

Negative side effects (some of which are NOT reversible) are the following: increased oil gland production resulting in acne, penis length decrease, testicle size decrease, increase in facial and pubic hair, deepening of voice, suppression of testosterone and other sex hormones, impaired production of sperm, elevated blood pressure, increased LDL (bad cholesterol), decreased HDL (good cholesterol), production of DHT, premature baldness, gynecomastia (development of man-boobs which may lactate), reduced sexual function, infertility, accelerated bone maturation, enlargement of heart, cardiac arrhythmia, heart palpitations, congestive heart failure, heart attack, sudden cardiac arrest, liver damage and failure, neuropsychiatric toxicity, aggression, mania, mood disorders, depression, and death.

Anabolic steroids are illegal in the United States without a prescription. They are considered a Schedule III controlled substance. They can still be obtained through illegal drug trade on the streets and online. Many new steroids enter the legal trade every year as “test-boosters”, and are sold until the FDA reviews and then bans them as well. Steroids range in price from $50 to hundreds of dollars. When you are on steroids, you also have to take pills that help counter the negative effects of the steroids. Also you have to cycle on and off of steroids.

Main point: steroids are a quick way to gains that endanger your life. Steroids are expensive. Creatine gives an extra boost and is safe under proper dosing and hydration. Creatine is affordable.

For your paper, I suggest to use medical and .gov sites for your background info on steroids and creatine. Also use journals. Do NOT use sites dedicated to legalizing steroids. Their facts are biased and usually untrue or skewed.

Carol asks…

Which online broker is the best for options trading?

I am using tradeking and their interface is HORRID. The options are hard to navigate and often the charts for them don’t even load. I am looking for one with up to date times of different options and charts for the options. Where I can watch things as they happen and make trades accordingly. Also I am looking for a low comission fee. Any advice greatly appreciated!

John answers:

I highly recommend ThinkOrSwim now a division of TD Ameritrade. They were founded by options traders who wanted to build a platform to optimize their own trading.

I had an account for 5 months with them before I funded it. Used it to paper trade my strategy. Never a hassle about using their platform and not funding my account.

I have some concerns about their ability to remain entrepreneurial after their merger. But the platform is so far ahead of anything else I’ve tried I think there is a significant barrier to others catching up.

And they have a dynamite iPAD app (just released) and an OK Droid app at the moment.
