In today’s world, “innovation” is often synonymous with “fast.” But when the stakes are high, the mission is critical, and failure is not an option, the reality is innovation can take time. That doesn’t mean the outcome is any less disruptive.

Who would have thought gears could make a plane so much more efficient?
Increased air travel will deliver untold benefits as more people conduct business and connect with other cultures far from home. But this increase in travel highlights the need to make air travel more sustainable.

Amazing and terribly sad...
Out of 1,600 volunteers who worked with AmeriCorps popular healthcare program last year, six were found to have given emotional support to women seeking abortions. And believe it or not, that was enough to shutter the entire program -- which provides healthcare services to underserved populations.

Glad to see these islands protected from tourists but it's still a sad state of affairs...
Some of Thailand's best known islands, including the spot made famous in the film “The Beach,” are closed indefinitely due to concerns of both damage from tourists and coral bleaching connected to climate change.

Going to be a good one!
 
Seafood is one of the healthiest, most versatile protein sources. In the US it's also one of the least consumed of the popular animal proteins, with Americans eating around 15 pounds of seafood per year compared to 60 pounds of chicken. Why aren't we eating more?
