Scientists finally explain why microwaved grapes emit glorious bursts of plasma

The mystery of the glorious fireball emitted by microwaved grapes (featured in my novel Little Brother) has been resolved, thanks to a paper in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences in which Trent University researchers Hamza Khattak and Aaron Slepkov explain how they destroyed a dozen microwaves before figuring out that the grapes were just the right size and had enough humidity to set up standing waves that amplify the microwaves -- and anything roughly grape-sized will do the s...

Jets Slumping at Worst Possible Time

One often hears, from NHL players, coaches, and media, about the importance of heading into playoffs on the right foot. Indeed, reaching peak performance at the right time and entering the postseason with confidence are paramount for any team entertaining notions of hosting pro hockey’s top prize. Therefore, it’s not ideal that Winnipeg Jets’ head coach Paul Maurice, over the past few weeks as what’s supposed to be a deep Stanley Cup Run inches ever-closer, has described his team’s play as...

The Extraordinary Power Of Ordinary Creativity

by Henry Mintzberg, author of “Bedtime Stories for Managers: Farewell, Lofty Leadership . . . Welcome, Engaging Management“ It is thrilling to listen to Tchaikovsky’s Violin Concerto. How many people are capable of such creativity? But there is another kind of creativity of which we are all capable. It’s quite ordinary, in fact, even if its results can be extraordinary: they have sometimes changed the world. It’s all about one little switch.

Canadiens Best Deadline Targets

Over the last few weeks, the Montreal Canadiens have amped up their play and now look like a legitimate playoff contender. A few weeks back, I wrote about how general manager Marc Bergevin will likely make depth trades before the deadline as he continues to hold onto to his budding young core. Since that time, Bergevin has added depth on defense with Christian Folin and bolstered the fourth line with the additions of Dale Weise and Nate Thompson. In the last 10 games, the Canadiens are 5-3-2 wit...

Canadiens’ 4th Line Gets Better Real Quick

On Feb. 9, the Montreal Canadiens went toe-to-toe with the Toronto Maple Leafs in an exciting 4-3 overtime loss. The pace was fast, defense looked ‘optional’ during stretches of the game, and it left everyone wanting more come April. Well, almost everyone. One of the key takeaways was the poor play of the Canadiens’ fourth line. For the trio of Nicolas Deslauriers, Michael Chaput and Matthew Peca, it was a night to forget.
