Lobster goes high-tech
The StarPhoenix

Wall Street Journal
Last year, millennials gave birth to 85 per cent of the babies in America, according to Goldman Sachs. Or in other words, they aren't as young as you might have imagined.

The future for blockchain technology
News BTC
Bitcoin, the cryptocurrency associated with the use of blockchain technology, has struggled to shake of the negative reputation and skepticism for years. However, blockchain itself still holds the tremendous potential to transform, not just the financial industry, but other sectors as well.
