    22 May 2015 | 9:05 pm
    By Sherry M. Adler As a former Navy Seal sat at a Memorial Day barbecue, he couldn't join in the festivities. Instead, he focused on the friends he lost in combat. He realized he needed to do something to commemorate the sacrifices made by those who protect our country. He stood up. He strapped a pack on his back and started walking. Along the way, he encountered another veteran. The two knew instinctively what they were doing and why. One said to the other, "Son, who are you carrying?" That led to the establishment of Carry the Load, and its mission: “Restoring the true meaning of Memorial…

    Memorial Day weekend is, to many people, the official start of the summer season and end of another school year. It is a long weekend to spend grilling out and enjoying time with friends and family. But Memorial Day is so much more. Memorial Day, originally called Decoration Day, is about coming together to honor those who gave their all in service to our nation. Memorial Day was officially proclaimed on May 5, 1868 by General John Logan, the national commander of the Grand Army of the Republic, and was first observed on May 30, 1868. On that day flowers were placed on the graves of Union and…

    The fourth dimension here is time. The researchers from the University of Wollongong, Australia, have invented a way to change a form of a 3D-printed object long after it’s printed under the influence of temperature, pressure or water. It becomes possible due to a special gel, and could be used in extreme environments like deep space without relying on humans or robots. According to the scientists, the objects can even revert back to their original shape. A 3D printer-compatible hydrogel (ionic covalent entanglement) is mechanically tough and can repeatedly change its shape thanks to…

People leave jobs for a number of reasons, including poor management practices (“I can’t get along with my boss”) and lack of motivation and engagement. But there are also many practices you can implement to make them want to work for your company and be a more satisfied, productive…

    From Design Taxi – By John Yong To educate children on where books come from, publisher Pequeno Editor and agency FCB Beunos Aires have created eco-friendly books that when planted, will grow back into trees. Called ‘Tree Book Tree’, the books are made from acid-free paper and ecologically-friendly ink—the pages also contain jacaranda seeds. When planted, the seeds will eventually germinate from the pages and grow up into a tree. Educational and thoughtful, wouldn’t it be nice if all books were created like this?
