Media coverage typically mentions them in terms of its emerging political clout, their impact on the work place or how they are marketed to. Millennials gets the side-show treatment as most day-to-day coverage is aimed at Gen Xers and Baby Boomers. We've set out to change that. Today, we launch our series Asking Y, a long-term commitment from HuffPost Canada and AOL Canada to report on Generation Y, Millennials, Echo Boomers or those I'll simply refer to as those 30 and younger.

So as I watch -- as a fellow journalist and a former <em>Globe</em> employee -- on how this vaunted newspaper handles this crisis, I think how it reacts in the coming days will speak to the standards it wishes to hold itself to. In the digital age, public trust can be earned as quickly as it takes to do a Google search or read a few tweets -- and that trust can just as quickly be lost.

The Mayo Clinic's latest research made a bit of a splash in the headlines when it warned that "chronic training," or competing in endurance events, can cause injury to the heart.
