Quote from: amw on October 02, 2021, 08:34:22 AMI always feel weird when realising my home town is no longer the most expensive city in the world—450 in NYC can get you a 600+ square foot one bedroom in a nice neighbourhood close to the subway. (And here's me still finding that too expensive.)(Of course from a musician point of view, NYC is just about as bad in terms of job situation right now; everyone who's smart and can get a visa moved to Berlin two years ago. Housing prices there are no longer affordable either, now, so a large number of musicians are relocating to places like Belgrade and Athens, which will have the same problem in five years.)
Quote from: Pohjolas Daughter on October 02, 2021, 12:33:29 PMOf the stories that you've heard, are most of them buying homes or renting?
Quote from: amw on October 02, 2021, 01:47:51 PMThe latter. It's been a long time since being a musician paid enough to be able to afford to buy a home. (Of course I don't know that many longterm orchestra musicians, & those I do know often ended up losing their jobs in e.g. the Minnesota Orchestra lockouts, the Met Opera layoffs, etc.)
Quote from: DavidW on October 02, 2021, 08:13:51 AMThe media has always had a problem with accurate reporting on science news. They go for sensationalism, don't understand how science works, describe things inaccurately with overly flowery prose, and are unable to correctly interpret the significance of what they read. Journalists badly need a good dose of scientific literacy.
