Adventures in Travel?

I love to travel and I love the Internet. The Internet has opened up the world and made it easier to travel. Has it made it too easy? Has it taken some of the mystery and joy out it?

Code.org: What most schools don't teach

Every student in every school should have the opportunity to learn to code:

Building Communities

Building Communities should be the common goal of successful businesses - for everyone's success.

Can you Insure Me from Myself?

Setup Picture – I am sitting at the Apple Genius Bar, ya I know they call it a “Bar” but not a drink in sight, working through my iPhone issues with the savvy, half shaven, twenty something, blue t-shirt wearing apple genius who is just about finished with my antenna issue. When to my surprise the next customer introduces himself to my genius with the problem of “Dude, my iPhone was only in the washer for just enough time for me to realize it wasn’t in my hands” – Yes, I am quoting his first sentence, I can’t make this up any better than reality. These folks really are geniuses of not only apple stuff but of multi-tasking, the proof is that my genius finished my issue while keeping a straight face and not laughing at the laundry dude. I have to admit that for the sake of all our Force 5 readers, I just had to stick around to hear the rest of the laundry story – You’re sitting on the edge of your office chairs, Right?

"A Force for Good" Non-Profit Awareness Contest

The greatest heroes don’t wear capes, can’t fly and aren’t from a distant planet. They are ordinary people doing extraordinary things every day. They lead, operate or volunteer at the many non-profit organizations (NPOs) in our community in an effort to make our world a better place. And like all heroes, when they are empowered, they become a Force for Good.

Attitude is everything

I have to share a blog I just ran across, "Are You Willing To Do This One Thing To Be Happier Each Day." I honestly don't even know how I found this blog, but I love it. In a nutshell, the article centers about that first thought you have during the day. Mondays are a prime example, if you start your day with a "Mondays suck" thought and then share that sentiment with the first person you see when you walk in the door, then sure enough, your Monday will suck.

South Bend needs Rebranding

So much has been said about South Bend since it showed up on the "List of Dying Cities." A city much like ours in many ways, Grand Rapids, (also on the list…) put together an incredible video in response. I have lived in South Bend most of my life and I spent 4 years in Grand Rapids attending art school, so I know both cities well.

What I love about the internet

For many of us, the internet is an integral part of our lives. Aside from my personal use to book trips, make online purchases and get directions through MapQuest, my focus is generally how it is used as a tool for businesses. I read about best practices in website building, the latest CMS technology, trends, internet marketing, etc. Recently, I have ran across a few examples of incredible websites which were focused on good works and realized that I love that aspect of the web, bringing a community together to help solve a problem.
