California is currently experiencing one of the worst droughts in its history. The situation has been going on for some time, isn’t getting any better, and has a drastic impact on local residents. While many of us think of a lack of access to water as a problem only developing nations have, there are American citizens who currently have to wonder about when they can bathe, how they can wash things and the efforts they will have to make to have drinking water. #warter #conservation

Recently we came across a story so special and touching we couldn’t help but share it. The article in question shares the story of a young boy with autism named Gus, and his budding “relationship” with Apple’s intelligent digital assistant #Siri. It gives us all something to think about in terms of how we interact with technology, and one another. #heartwarming

We’ve all heard the saying, “do what you love and you’ll never work a day in your life.” There is certainly a lot to be said for working a job that you truly enjoy: lower levels of stress, a feeling of fulfillment and a reason to be excited as one gets out of bed in the morning only scratch the surface of the benefits of loving your job. What does a dream job look like, and how do you get one? #rolemodel #jobs

When most of us think of the flu, we think of high temperatures, runny noses, ague, aches, pains and a general feeling of malaise. However, this year it is also providing a wonderful opportunity to be of service and help others through a “get one, give one” program. This provides a vaccination to a child in a developing country in exchange for pledging to get a flu shot for yourself. #fluseason #news

The story goes like this: a Mormon camper, away from home for the summer decided to drink coffee. Coffee and tea had been listed as dietary restrictions on his personal file by his parents, ostensibly because of religious strictures against the consumption of caffeine and not because of a health risk.

In this day and age we all live an increasing amount of our lives online. We share enormous amounts of data, much of it personal, and often without giving it much thought at all. In so many ways it enhances our lives and opens opportunities and advancements previously unheard of. At the same time, every so often a story comes along that makes us believe that perhaps the luddites got it right. #technology #news
