The latter is what’s at play here, with the robotic wearing giving you increasingly difficult workouts. Taking a stroll with Samsung’s robotic exoskeleton That...

The Way to a Man's Heart

French Husband loves to eat. I was taught that the way to a man's heart was through his stomach. It stands to reason that we'd make a good team. Except he eats so fast. His plate is cleared-off before I've taken my first bite. Honestly, he shatters the French image of proper dining etiquette. He borderlines abnormal in this department. I've often wondered why he doesn't enter a food eating contest. To slow down his rapid hand-to-mouth feeding, I ask him simple non-threatening questions. (Non-th...

Homeland Security warns businesses to brace for Iranian cyberattacks

Homeland Security is warning U.S. companies to “consider and assess” the possible impacts and threat of a cyberattack on their businesses following heightened tensions with Iran. It’s the first official guidance published by the government’s dedicated cyber advisory unit, the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency, just days after the killing of a leading Iranian military commander, Qasem Soleimani. The U.S. government had accused Soleimani of targeting and killing U.S. personnel acros...

The Ups and Downs of Visiting Walt Disney World As A Solo Adult

It seems strange for me to think about but, until just a couple of years ago, I had never before visited a Disney Park. After my first trip to Disneyland in Anaheim though I was hooked and it has since become an important part of my travel life. Some will poo-poo it, but that’s their issue not mine. I love visiting Disney Parks for many reasons, but at its core the experience is pure and innocent fun, the likes of which is all too rare to find. Even though I had visited Disneyland several t...

Stop Waiting for the Perfect Time to Travel!

Updated: 01/06/2020 | January 6th, 2020 As the sun rises on a new year, we look out on the horizon and determine to be a better version of ourselves. This year we will travel more. We’ll ponder the exotic locations we hope to find ourselves in. We’ll think of the adventures we’ll go on and the people we’ll meet. We’ll begin to formulate plans, research trips, and start saving money. But, as the year progresses, most of us will abandon those dreams, forever pushing them off as life throws u...

Meet Ballie, Samsung’s rolling personal assistant that does…stuff

This time last year, we asked the question: is Samsung getting serious about robotics. I’m not sure we’re that much closer to an answer, but tonight’s CES keynote pointed to a company that clearly wants to convince us of as much. Though much like the demos shown off last year, tonight’s devices were concepts — indications of what a Samsung could bring to market if it was determined to do so. Is Samsung getting serious about robotics? The headliner is Ballie (pronounced Ball-E). Still ve...

Netflix and Gwyneth Paltrow’s ‘Goop Lab’ will launch on January 24

“The Goop Show,” an upcoming reality series co-hosted by Gwyneth Paltrow and tied to her lifestyle company Goop, now has a launch date and a trailer. Goop has faced many accusations of promoting and selling pseudoscience — most notoriously, perhaps, in selling jade eggs for vaginas — and it seems like the series is embracing the site’s reputation, as it will feature what Netflix calls “boundary-pushing wellness topics.” In fact, the company also released an eyebrow-raising poster today, with ...

35 Top Day Hikes in Canada – Personally Tested

I have been very lucky to spend a lot of time doing hikes in Canada – across all provinces and territories. What I look for in a great day hike is superlative scenery – with my preference being coast, lake or mountain views or even something that makes the hike unique. The Mingan with its fantastic eroded rock monoliths would be a great example. I’m not a fan of hiking miles through forests without a view. From decades of hiking I think these are 35 of the greatest day hikes in Canada. ...
