It would be good to see some of this in the UK.  Why we don't teach thinking skills is beyond me. Edward de Bono cracked this years ago, Lateral Thinking, Six Thinking Hats, etc.

Whisky tastes better with water - research! #WorldWhiskyDay
While it's been the topic of many a debate as to whether water and whiskey goes well together, new research in this field claim both to be indispensable for unlocking the true flavour of the latter. The actual quantity of the water to be added can vary though, from a few drops to a more generous amount and depends more on individual's tastes than anything else.

This is hilarious! Imagine Audi at +150kph down an autobahn and DHL trying to deliver! :D
Audi, Amazon, and DHL all teamed up for a new pilot project called “Audi connect easy delivery,” where Amazon Prime customers who are simultaneous Audi owners can have their Audi as their shipping address for online orders. How about that for convenience? The way it works is once you send your ...

Engineers get stuff done!
Introduction
Steve Marquis,

I'm a people person and since people are at the heart of most problems, I'm also something of a problem solver!

I'm still a design/consulting engineer at heart, spent 30 years in IT/comms after a mech eng start, worked in virtually every industry, now retired to run a pub in the UKs NE Wales mountains. That pub is now the first pub in Wales to sport a Post Office Local over a bar!

Having bought product to market I'm using my marketing skills and IT abilities to promote the business via our website and social media. I'm a Google+ early adopter and keen to develop it's use for small business and share that experience with the wider community.

I've been reflecting on the above and it occurs to me that these days I am more of a conduit rather than a creative for original thinking, however, I do sometimes have my moments!
Bragging rights
I've been a hands-on Mechanical, Design, IT & Comms Consulting Engineer that when I've had the opportunity, project/programme manages, markets, sells and writes about it all too! I'm also a wannabe Permaculturist!
