For the past couple of weeks, news coming out of Thailand regarding the soccer team of 12 boys (ages 11-16) trapped in a cave has captivated the world. Once it was reported that every single boy was rescued, we all shared in on a collective sigh of relief. I cannot imagine being trapped in a cave with little to no light, food or potable water for one day let alone more than two weeks. So, how did they endure such a traumatic ordeal?

Its “summertime and the living is easy” … except when it’s hot… and not. Whether those words remind you of Ella Fitzgerald or Sublime, sometimes summer isn’t so easy. The East Coast of the United States is in the midst of an historic heatwave and sprinting between air conditioned buildings is only fun for so long. So, when modern technologies aren’t enough, where do we turn?

In the movie Limitless, Bradley Cooper's character pops a pill that unlocks unbelievable focus and productivity. In essence, he becomes a superhuman version of himself. When this movie came out, I was completely fascinated by it as my own issues with ADHD (or attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder) had put me in a similar position.

Kate was a talented designer and Anthony was a prolific writer, chef and TV personality [someone that I personally adored from a professional standpoint]. And it is a stark reminder of the many others that have taken their own lives, including Avicii’s suicide in Oman at the end of April.

The weekly medical journal, Lancet, recently took a "shot in the dark" to better understand how the relationship between activity and sleep are associated with mood disorders, wellbeing and cognitive function. Actually, it was a little more precise than that. In fact, the journal has been around since the early 1800s and was coincidently started by a guy name Thomas Wakley.

When the United Nations tagged India to host this year's World Environment Day, the discussion around single use plastics took on the political fervor of a 1960's rally. With organizations like the Surfrider Foundation leading "strawless summer" campaigns across a number of cities worldwide, we may be able to finally #beatplasticpollution ... and enjoy a new summer of love.

We have finally reached the point where we have to confront the "plastics." And no, I'm not talking about the popular girls from the movie Mean Girls. Let's face it, plastic has wrapped itself into the fabric of our society with innovation that seemingly improves our daily lives.

Where are we spending 93% of our time? Indoors... at least according to the good folks at the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) who study this kind of stuff. I personally hope we are really enjoying those precious 100 minutes each day outside the walled confines of our existence.

By now some of us are three weeks deep into those New Year's resolutions, and it may make it seem like 2018 is going to be a long one. But what if we had to hold onto those ambitious intentions for the next 100 years?
