Cold Front Came to Town

(Photo by Philippe Collard on Unsplash) I came to Houston more than couple decades ago, thinking I would have a nice cool but not too cold winter. That was why I didn't pack a single sweater in my suitcase. WRONG! Since then I experienced some mild winter and some really cold fronts creating scary roadways, bursting water pipes, building a beautiful ice sculputre made naturally on a fauntain at the Vintage Park and on. Off course my closet is now full of not only heavy sweaters but also thick jackets, and I also learned how to use a furnace thanks to my friends. Cold Front came to town again this year at the moment of celebrating holiday season by many...

Do you know ORIGAMI?

(Photo taken by J. Balla Photography from Unsplash) Have you heard a kind of paper art called ORIGAMI? Origami basically means Folding (Oru) Paper (Kami), but it is very versatile. The history of Origami goes back to 1600s when Samurai was still around in Japan. You can still see many forms of Origami now, and children learn it from parents, kindergarten teachers and books when they are still pretty young. You use Origami to make toys, bookmarks, trash cans, objects to display, and many more. Papers can also be glued, cut and/or combined to make more complicated shapes. For example, you have seen the infinity cube which became a huge trend amongst kids. Did you know you can make it with Origami?...

What is your passion? Where it leads you?

(Photo taken by Ian Schneider from Unsplash) What is your passion? There is no such a thing like a big or a small passion. If you really want to do it, even if there are obstacles preventing you from pursuing further, that is your passion. Passion gives you a meaning, enjoyment, knowledge, connection, love, ideas, (we can keep going) in your life. You don't know yet, or you seem to have lost it in the past? Then education is a key to find one. November 8th is known as STEM/STEAM Day. Just in case you aren't familiar with the terms, STEAM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Mathmatics. My background is Engineering. My passion to create useful products to...
