NMIH
Christine Reber and Lisa Buss were special guests of the NMIH and given a private tour by Megan Pildis, who is their Development Coordinator. From the minute you walk up to the entrance, you are reminded of the large structure that once dominated this very ground. Walking through this museum brought back so many memories for me. As a child, I remember my father bringing my siblings and I to Bethlehem Steel and walking us through the plant showing us how Steele was made. Afterwards we would stop at Martin Towers and go to the tippy top to have lunch at the circular glass restaurant ... boy how things have changed.

Wisconsin Company to Microchip Employees
By Angela Moscaritolo
 
The tiny, implantable RFID chips will let employees make purchases in the company's break room mini market, open doors, login to their computers, use the copy machine, and more.

Constantly misplacing your work badge? Workers at a Wisconsin company called Three Square Market (32M) may never have that problem again.

Wherever women gather together failure is impossible.
- Susan B. Anthony
Susan B. Anthony House, in Rochester, New York, was the home of Susan B. Anthony for forty years, while she was a national figure in the women's rights movement.

She was arrested in the front parlor after attempting to vote in the 1872 Presidential Election. She resided here until her death.

The house was purchased for use as a memorial in 1945, and declared a National Historic Landmark in 1965. It has been documented in the Historic American Buildings Survey.

16 Ways to Create Your Own Happiness at Work
Dr. Travis Bradberry

Let's face it, happiness and work do not tend to go hand in hand. A 2013 Gallup study, which reported data from more than 180 million people, found that just 13% of us consider ourselves to be "happily engaged at work."

Those who do rate themselves as happy are 36% more motivated, six times more energized, and twice as productive as their unhappy counterparts.

Places to See - the River of Five Colors in Colombia

 
Caño Cristales, Meta Department, Colombia. Also known as the River of Five Colors, Caño Cristales is the most spectacular natural wonder in the country. Found in the mountain range of Serranía de la Macarena, the river mesmerizes with amazing colors: vivacious yellow, green, blue, black and red shades quiver from the bottom.

The Liquid Rainbow is caused by a unique phenomena: a red plant - Macarenia clavigera - growing in the riverbed. Other colors come from black rocks, green algae, blue water and yellow sand, producing an iridescent effect. The river also features waterfalls, pools and caverns, making it even more dramatic. Furthermore - there are no fish or other creatures, so visitors can enjoy uninterrupted bathing in Caño Cristales.

Did You Know? 
The name of the city we call Bangkok is 115 letters long in the Thai language.

Unless talking to foreigners who don't know any different, Thais will never call their capital city Bangkok - indeed, some Thais in the more remote provinces may never have even heard of it being called that. Instead in Thai it is known as Krung Thep (กรุงเทพ), which roughly translates to 'City of Angels'. Bangkok (translating as 'village of wild plums') was the original site for the capital city and was located west of the Chao Phraya river (in modern day Thonburi).

rung Thep is actually an abbreviated version of the ceremonial full name, which is shown below.

กรุงเทพมหานคร อมรรัตนโกสินทร์ มหินทรายุธยามหาดิลก ภพนพรัตน์ ราชธานีบุรีรมย์ อุดมราชนิเวศน์ มหาสถาน อมรพิมาน อวตารสถิต สักกะทัตติยะ วิษณุกรรมประสิทธิ์

In the official English romanisation, this is certified as the longest place name in the world in the Guinness book of records. It's pronounced something like:
Krung Thep Mahanakhon Amon Rattanakosin Mahinthara Ayuthaya Mahadilok Phop Noppharat Ratchathani Burirom Udomratchaniwet Mahasathan Amon Piman Awatan Sathit Sakkathattiya Witsanukam Prasit
