The Eden Project Built a Rainforest Ecosystem Inside Buckminster Fuller-Inspired Geodesic Domes Buckminster Fuller had a difficult time as an inventor in his early years. “Having been expelled from Harvard for irresponsible conduct,” notes The Guardian, “he struggled to find a job and provide a living for his young family in his early 30s.” Despite later successes, and a later reputation as legendary as Nikola Tesla’s, he was often, like Tesla, seen by critics as a utopian visionary, whose visions were too impractical to really change the...

How to change or cancel flights during the pandemic

Thomas Pallini/Business Insider A surge in COVID-19 cases across the US is encouraging would-be travelers to cancel their holiday flights.

A Message to Weary Pastors

We just entered the second lockdown this year here in Toronto. We can’t have more than 10 people gather for worship. Churches are weighing how to respond, but this move certainly limits our options. It feels a lot like March 15 again. You may not be in lockdown as we are, but I know you’re dealing with the pandemic too. And it’s tiring. Thom Rainer has written, “The vast majority of pastors with whom our team communicates are saying they are considering quitting their churches.” I don’t co...

With many relationships, the reasons they end are clear. Two people who are dating realize they’re not compatible in some way and don’t have a future together. A married couple decides they can’t stand living with each other anymore. Business partners split to pursue divergent goals. A boss fires an employee for stealing from the company; or an employee quits when his boss doesn’t give him a desired promotion. Why a friendship ends isn’t always so obvious, however, nor is how one...
