Inspired by the Oscar-winning film, Gravity, starring Hollywood power duo Sandra Bullock and George Clooney, NASA has released spectacular never before seen images from its archives. This photo, taken in 1984, shows Mission Specialist Bruce McCandless II pictured further away from the safety of his ship than any astronaut that had floated through space before him (at 320 ft away). This feat was made possible at the time by the new Manned Manourving Unit (MMU), a nitrogen jet propelled backpack that was also used to great effect by Clooney in the film. Take a look at more of the incredible NASA images here.
What happens when you put two dogs in a photobooth? Photographer Lynn Terry found out when she captured pit bulls and canine pals Bumper, on the right, and Willis sharing a special moment. A social media favourite, Terry’s image so beautifully demonstrates that while being man’s best friend, our pooches also have each other’s backs. For more photos, click here.
This is a wonderful story about love.
Groundbreaking store Hointer is revolutionising how we shop – creating an incredible customer experience, without an actual human being in sight! Just proves that customer experiences are fundamentally about meeting human needs NOT just smiley shiny faces.
Well, I love reading. Especially books, the real ones, made out of paper and ink. This is probably the reason why I have found the idea of giving free books away to capture the attention of potential local customers a great one.
Last Christmas Bookworld, an Australian based company, transformed some bus shelters in Sydney and in Melbourne into bookshelves full of free books for people to help themselves.
Bookworld tried to create more consciousness around the fact that they are local and they offer books at a reasonable price. Even better, they guarantee to beat Amazon price by 10% and offer free and fast delivery across Australia.

Yesterday I had a conversation with some friends about how people are disconnected these days.
We use social media, smart phones all the time to be in contact to everybody but we are actually disconnected with the people that surround us.
Well, this is why I really liked what a Thai mobile network did.
DTAC is encouraging people to “Disconnect to connect”—to put down their mobile devices for face time with friends and family that sometime seems to disappear behind the screen of some of our every-day-devices.
Well to better understand what I mean just watched the video below.
Alan Watts was a British-born-philosopher, who’s probably best known for popularising Eastern beliefs for Western audiences in the 60′s and 70′s. Having stumbled on his work, I’ve now discovered an entire world of Watts’ lectures turned into mesmorising videos that explore topics like our relationship with money, living with consciousness, personal leadership … and the path to a good life.
