As Time Goes By

By Jim Whitt It’s 4:58 PM, Tulsa time. I’m staring at the screen on my laptop surveying what will be my new website. I sent the latest changes for the site to Damon, my technology guru earlier today in a Word document. Suddenly, the changes start to appear miraculously on the screen much like the proverbial hand writing on the wall as described in the book of Daniel. I blinked a couple of times.

Resilience Engineering

By Paula Lau Most people who know me well might be surprised by this — I actually enjoy reading Popular Mechanics magazine! There’s something fascinatingly mysterious about what engineers, scientists, and people who use the left sides of their brain think about. These intriguing thinkers translate ideas into the everyday objects, conveniences, and technological advancements I have come to take for granted. I believe the reason it is so interesting to me is because often when I’m reading articles about the latest innovations, I’m amazed at what people come up with. Charles H. Duell, a 1899 commissioner with the U.S…. Read More
