American Travel Experiences Everyone Should Try

In recent years I’ve spent a lot more time traveling around my own country and, for the most part, it’s been wonderful. The experiences I’ve enjoyed most times truly surprised me and I’ve learned how to better appreciate the full width and breadth of the U.S. In an effort to encourage other people, American or not, to experience more of what makes the country so much fun to explore, today I want to share some of my own personal experiences that I think best portray what the nation is all about....

Swimming with giants in Madagascar

“Préparez-vous! Préparez-vous!” our captain shouts. Then “Allez! Allez! A droite!” Flippers on, masks down and snorkels up, we slide rapidly into the water from the rear of the boat. For a few seconds we can see nothing but bubbles. When they clear, we spot a huge whale shark swimming straight towards us – flat-headed with a yard-wide mouth. We paddle back to avoid him, but the enormous creature takes no notice. He glides past us – all 18 sleek feet of him. We turn and follow. The next few minut...

End monopoly protections to fix PG&E and other utilities

Questions are swirling about the future of Pacific Gas and Electric – and gas and electricity service in general in California – since the company filed for bankruptcy protection in late January. In light of PG&E’s safety and financial issues, some state officials have proposed replacing its board of directors, forcibly breaking up the company, or even having the state government take over its operations. San Francisco is considering buying up some of PG&E’s infrastructure assets and developing ...

Flames Playoff Success Rests on Home Ice Advantage

In The Art of War, famous philosopher Sun Tzu declared that every battle is won before it is ever fought. The phrasing refers to savvy warriors choosing to engage in battle on when the situation is advantageous to them. In the context of the Stanley Cup playoffs, National Hockey League clubs rarely get to choose their battles, but often prefer to play on home ice. Johnny Gaudreau and the Calgary Flames have been more successful at home than on the road. (AP Photo/John Locher) For the Calgary F...

Using technology to support project-based learning

How can we reduce plastic in our oceans? In today’s classrooms, teachers use project-based learning (or PBL) so that students can come up with potential solutions to real-world problems like this. With PBL, students identify the problem, research a solution and support it with evidence—all while learning valuable skills they’ll use long after graduation. Brainstorming these dynamic solutions can be an exciting and creative challenge for young minds. Technology can help motivate and spark imagina...

Review Of Andando Tours: Galapagos Luxury Worth The Cost?

 The Galapagos Islands are not an easy place to describe because of all the places I’ve been to, I’ve never been anywhere quite like it. When Andando Tours invited me to try one of their tours, scheduling conflicts nearly had me declining what turned out to be a trip of a lifetime. No, I was no paid to write this and it’s not an advertisement. There are other ways to visit the Galapagos on a budget but this particular $4500 Andando trip, onboard the Mary Anne sailboat, ends up being a value...

Coyotes Weekly: Still Scratchin’ and Clawin’

With 12 games left to play, the Arizona Coyotes woke up this morning in the No. 8 spot in the Western Conference. Despite all of their injuries – they lead the NHL in man-games lost – this team has hung around (or scratched and clawed, if you will) and has emerged as a threat to not only qualify for the playoffs for the first time since 2012, but to also make some noise once they’re there. Let's go. Scratchin' and Clawin'. — Oliver Ekman-Larsson (@OEL23) M...

Sharks’ Hot Streak Driven by Jones & Secondary Scoring

In a Feb. 26 matchup against the Boston Bruins, San Jose Sharks star defenseman Erik Karlsson aggravated a groin injury and hasn’t played since. However, the Sharks have managed to win all six games in the month of March with Karlsson on the shelf. One of the deepest teams in the NHL, San Jose has also been without top-six winger Evander Kane during this win streak. The offense has been just fine, though, with a goal differential of plus-12 while averaging over four goals per game this month. Pe...
