What is Energy?

The most basic elements of physics are often the hardest to explain. Let’s simplify. Energy is in everything and everyone. It’s potential (stored up), or kinetic (in motion).

The Ross-Pickersgill-Key Relationship.

How do these three names relate? Well, President’s Day was this week and since we’re talking about world changers, it seemed fitting to feature a story containing this theme.

It was such a disturbance to what was once a pretty structure – well, maybe not the train cars. Vandals and gangsters are the labels…

Power of Believing in People!

Today more than ever, people need someone to believe in them. Everyone has a story, a backround or some past hurt. This is life. Some overcome; others haven’t yet.
