Just beyond these tall buildings a superb pilot saved an entire plane full of passengers.

Captain Sullenberger has my eternal respect. No drone pilot, he.

+Chris Hadfield​ you can't talk about this without mentioning  Captain Robert (Bob) Pearson, also a glider pilot and the Gimli Glider. Again a powerless landing and zero fatalities.
Gimli also lesser known as the home of Crown Royal

I'm not convinced that this "Quantum Vacuum" engine works, but I hope so! Keep testing, NASA!

I’m taking a moment to recognize the work of my son, Evan, who has been helping to manage things so well these past two years. He convinced me to do Oddity (and then made it), created our Webby-winning website, and devised the strategies behind all the social media impact.

He has recently begun a digital agency called launch*pad (http://lpad.ca), to help socially-conscious Canadian businesses greet the world.

I’m excited! Not just for where the endeavour will take him and what he’ll learn, but also for what he will do for others. Good work, Evan!
launch*pad is a Toronto based advertising boutique offering creative, strategic, branding, digital and traditional-channel solutions. To boldly go where no brand has gone before please contact Evan Hadfield at evan.hadfield@LPAD.ca or Alex Shifrin at alex.shifrin@LPAD.ca.

Good morning, Australia! I'm greatly looking forward to being in Perth, Sydney, Adelaide and Melbourne in August!

I've only been to Australia once, but have seen it so vividly from orbit. There'll be stories, videos, ideas, discussion, a little music :)  And many images of the country, like this one.

I contacted Memofix to help repair a hard drive that had stopped working at the recommendation of friends. After having worked with them, I would be happy to recommend the same for my own. I spoke with Bob Giannoulis, who offered in-depth knowledge, a pleasant attitude, and a sincerity that can’t be faked. He was able to quickly assess and explain the problem simply, providing a step by step process to solve the issue. The payment process was smooth and my new HD works great. The level of customer service was beyond expectation, and they’ll certainly get my business for any future HD needs.
