The Francis Factor

Americans have gone completely gaga over a simple Argentinian priest who happened to get himself elected head of the world’s largest church. First it was Washington DC, the power base of American life and politics, turned upside down by the simple elegance of “El Papa”. In a city of influence-pedaling and power-broking, his earnest requests […]

The Search Party

In 2012, a woman went missing near Iceland’s Eldgja canyon…not a place you want to be lost alone.

I Dare Ya’

These are the words every junior high boy loves to say but hates to hear. No time more so than when being challenged to attempt something that both exhilarates and horrifies you!
