"Technology has come a long way since Wile E. Coyote found himself on the short end of the fuse. Explosives are now triggered by an iPad from a secure location, the timing within milliseconds to control breakage."
The first signs of fall are evident – a tinge of red on leaves, pumpkin-flavored treats lining grocery store shelves and students are back in school, reminiscing about summer vacation. The smell of the ocean, the thrill of riding the waves and burying their toes in the sand is still fresh in their minds.

"What I love about the job is the people on the train. They're the best. They're like my second family. I know them by name, they know me by name."

In recognition of his leadership constructing a base camp in northern Iraq, Nate Westover, Union Pacific senior manager- Strategic Sourcing, recently was presented the Bronze Star for meritorious service in a combat zone.

The 13-year U.S. Army reservist deployed to Iraq May 2015 to April 2016 to perform petroleum supply operations. Upon arrival, he was tasked with a much larger responsibility – building a new base camp, a process he likens to creating a small town.

Westover learned several skills at UP he applied to his service abroad as Sergeant First Class. “I was given that responsibility overseas because of my background in procurement and logistics, and working with suppliers,” he said.

Congratulations Nate, we're proud of you!

"There's a disturbing, ongoing trend of people walking along the tracks."

Agreed. I was waiting for a train on Union Pacific tracks one time, and there was this guy standing on the tracks for a long time and a train never come so I don't know what happened to the guy.

ICYMI: We get it. The ongoing pursuit of the perfect selfie is just as much about the background as it is striking the right pose. In some places — like dinner, a concert, or even enjoying the great outdoors — it’s a great idea! But on railroad tracks? Not so much.

Please share this video to help us spread the word. Pictures should be fond memories, not painful mistakes. Visit http://up.com/photosafety to learn more.

"Today, the diversity discussion isn't about being ethical, it's not about being moral, it's a financial imperative."
Sherrye Hutcherson says her mom used to tell her, 'If you have a bunch of people who think alike, all you need is one of them.' It's a message she took to heart.
