These far-flung US regions could become the next big startup hubs as techies abandon Silicon Valley and embrace remote work

The COVID crisis has forced tech companies to embrace remote work, and many have come to realize their employees can be just as productive working out of the office as in it. Some are now planning to allow much of their workforce to continue work remotely after the crisis passes; companies could save money if employees work in less costly areas of the country than traditional tech hubs. Facebook plans to support employees working far from its Silicon Valley headquarters, setting up regional hu...

Checking In: Word and Colour for 2020

Almost 5 months in and I’m reflecting back on the word and colour I chose for 2020. To recap, I like the simplicity of having a single word to keep top of mind, and the power and symbolism of a single colour. With a milestone 50th birthday coming up in July, I took extra care in choosing my word and colour for 2020. As it turns out, I’ve found them to be extremely appropriate. Word: EXPERIENCE I chose the word EXPERIENCE for three reasons. First, I wanted to share my experiences over the last ...

Camping for Beginners – What You Need to Know

I’ve been camping now for 30 plus years. Growing up it was all about cottages – but when John and I moved to Colorado, camping and hiking became our focus. We were broke and camping was cheap. All we needed was the initial investment in camping gear and a tank of gas every weekend and we could get ourselves into some fabulous Rocky Mountain scenery.  With high unemployment, under employment, tanking stock portfolios and a nasty virus, this is the year to go camping. In this post you’ll find in...

Not The First Pandemic For The NHL

from Kurt Streeter of the New York Times, Nobody made much of it when Joe Hall skated off the ice. On March 29, 1919, his Montreal Canadiens were on the verge of losing Game 5 of the Stanley Cup finals to the Seattle Metropolitans. Hall, 37, was one of hockey’s original enforcers, known for applying his wooden stick like a cudgel and delivering knockout blows. The Canadiens, behind by 3-0 heading into the third period, needed his pounding determination. But he went meekly to the b...

Baby gorilla badly injured in family skirmish at Seattle zoo

A baby gorilla was badly injured at a Seattle zoo on Saturday when he was caught in a skirmish between his family group members, zookeepers said. Animal health experts at the Woodland Park Zoo say little Kitoko was bitten on the head, likely by accident when another gorilla tried to bite his mother, Uzumma. Kitoko sustained a fractured skull and a severe laceration, but zoo officials say the 2-month-old gorilla underwent surgery and may fully recover if he doesn't develop an infection.
