3 years ago I talked to friends about this as a business idea. Parents would pay you to try and abduct their kids and teach the children how to be safe. No one knows how their kids will respond until it actually happens (as we see on the video). Everyone I spoke to thought there was to much liability to become a business. I still think it could be a good business - in much the same way companies pay third parties to try and break their security.

Perhaps if this isn't a possible business idea you could still work with a friend whom your children don't know, and have them do the experiment.  And you could return the favour to their children as well.  I think it is a good idea as some children are so friendly and trusting that no matter what you teach them, you have no guarantees of what they will do until it happens.

Fantastic website resource for Canadian companies looking to export globally. If you aren't thinking beyond Canadian borders for your business than you should be today.

Quite telling. I love that every country thinks they are the most compassionate. Leave it to the Italians to to rate themselves the least trustworthy. The Germans also think quite highly of themselves - rating themselves the most trustworthy, the least arrogant and the most compassionate. I think technically that makes them the most arrogant.
 
What do Europeans think of each other? In 2013, most Europeans regarded Greece or Italy as the least trustworthy nation, Germany as most trustworthy. Italians appeared to not even trust themselves. Germany, however, was also widely regarded as the most arrogant nation—and the least compassionate http://econ.st/1FXpBA3

I'm surprised that almost all countries felt that Germany was the most trustworthy.

Very nice to see at least one Canadian Company (Frank & Oak) on this list.
From the Amazon of India to the Warby Parker of Warby Parkers, the companies changing how we shop.

Agreed, although I'd like to see a lot more Canadians given the opportunities, resources and engaged digital consumers we enjoy.

You snooze, you lose. The last Porsche 918 Spyder has been built; that’s it above, getting a final rubdown. The planned 918-unit production run is completed, and the company claims that all are spoken for, with about 300 ending up in the United States. You can watch the assembly process here, and here are 15 things we […]

I couldn't agree more. It is sad to watch the decline. It's like an accident in slow motion.
The U.S. is being overrun by a wave of anti-science, anti-intellectual thinking. Has the most powerful nation on Earth lost its mind?

Such an important point. We all know the issue yet very few change their behavior in order to make a change.

Another fantastically powerful ad against guns from grey advertising. I love the head-on creative approach of this campaign.

My 6 year old daughter wrote this poem while pretending to be at 'work'. Nice to find it sitting on my desk.
