Business must play a leading role in creating a better future for us all: http://virg.in/rtc
Capitalism is a great driver of innovation, and has made our world a prosperous and inspiring place to live. But some companies who do not consider people and the planet as well as profit have given the system a questionable reputation. As humanity becomes more and more environmentally and socially ...

How we tried to stop the Iraq War: http://virg.in/hsi
In 2003, many people around the world were extremely concerned about the possibility of war breaking out in Iraq. In 1990 we went on a rescue mission to Baghdad to bring home a 747 full of hostages. 13 years later, it looked very likely that a new generation were going to have to suffer from another...

Isis was around before the war. ISIS was created from mainly al Qaeda generals and other members that thought simply a new name would bring a new hateful face to their group. So no the war didn't start ISIS. Also the US has not "stolen" a single barrel of oil from the middle east. If you'd check your facts before spitting out your propaganda you'd find we actually paid more per barrel after the war. As far as backing a complete madman.. Who hasn't the US backed at one point or another!? Saddam came to a point where simply put, we stepped in to help his people from the complete tyranny of him and his sons and to bring freedom to the people... (your welcome by the way). I'm all for world peace but as history books show, Peace doesn't just happen by being peaceful and unfortunately it has to be something taken and protected. Once gained, idolized within physical boundaries because as long as there is a different group they will want to take it from you. It's just the laws of man that date back to the caveman days. If you mess with Americans you better believe there will be consequences. Happy Memorial Day.. May we never forget those that died to protect others freedom's. (Even the ungrateful ones)

i got it!! introduce entropy and model plans as such. that way sustainability wouldnt be an option , but rather failure an inevability . the point bieng moot, utterly useless, information that would be force-fed to everyone anyways. you want sustainability, take your standard buisness model turn it upside down add some ethics and compasion then you might well stay afloat for a short period until you start a family then your portfolio shrinks you start laying people off then one of those peoples lives you ruined by firing them shows up with a ruger and blows your face off. hows that for a damn buisness model? bugger

High drama on Moskito Island, as we spring into rescue mode: http://virg.in/mir
We all need a helping hand sometimes. I’ve had to be rescued a number of times in my life. Some of my ballooning and boating adventures didn’t go to plan, but fortunately I was winched to safety by incredibly brave helicopter crews. In 1986, while attempting the fastest Atlantic Ocean crossing, ...
