All the conservation efforts in the world won't be enough to make a dent in the oncoming sustainability crisis our planet faces.
Apple Computer would not have reached its current peak of success if it had feared to roll the dice and launch products that didn't always hit the mark. In the mid-1990s, the company was considered washed up, Steve Jobs had departed, and a string of lackluster product launches unrelated to the company's core business.
As a child I experienced firsthand the severe effects of poverty and illiteracy, especially upon women and children. My parents taught me the importance of education and that it was a key to improving an individual's life.
As a father, I believe that involving children in sports at a young age is generally, a wise proposition.
