Razón #1: ¡Amo a las mascotas!

Often pet hotels are expensive and stressful for pets. A promising, affordable alternative is a caring pet/house sitter. But choosing the right one may not be an easy task. Let me share with you who I am and why I am the ideal person to care for your pet(s) and home.

Clipped from June 3, 1911, Calgary Herald, page 1

On June 2, 1911, the New Westminster community was shocked to learn that 45-year-old, Sarah Ann Elizabeth Jobes, was shot to death by her husband, Henry Anderson Jobes.

This extreme form of domestic violence was not an isolated event in the city’s daily life, nor is it rare today. Sadly, it has been part of human history, and it continues to occur into the present day. The magnitude and frequency of the crime are such that it has earned the name “femicide” in the penal system of many Western countries.

Sarah and Henry, along with their two sons William and…

I wrote this article on March 11, 2020

Imagine a company that wants to assess the impact of COVID-19 on fuel demand in a large city. The company wants to track airport foot traffic and flight patterns in real time since regional airlines are suspending flights. An alternative is to look at previous outbreaks, but this can paint an inaccurate picture. So the company hires Orbital Insight to…


Historia de los Alonso del municipio de Gachancipá (Colombia): alegrías, fatigas, desdichas y consuelos.

Hace 40 años mi papá empezó a buscar sus raíces en las partidas de bautismo de la iglesia de Gachancipá. Con el tiempo, mi hermano Carlos le ayudó en la tarea y juntos construyeron nuestro primer árbol familiar. Pero nombres sin fotos y fotos sin historias, no dicen nada. Así que decidí reunir algunos testimonios y fotografías (más de 200) que dan vida a esta familia, los Alonso.

Por un primo (Fernando Alonso) supe que Juan Alonso de la Torre fue un lugarteniente de Gonzalo Jiménez de Quezada, y uno de los primeros Alonsos que llegaron de España al Nuevo…

Cloud computing, as we know it today, has been an enormous advance in the service segments — from the dawn of Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) to Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) and Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS), and now Everything-as-a-Service (XaaS).

Likewise, businesses are moving into that software-defined world with usage-based service contracts and a XaaS ecosystem of providers.

The global XaaS market will grow at a compounded annual growth rate of between 2016 and 2020. The XaaS model is becoming a as much as it is a tactic, according to one executive.

The cloud offers a platform for organizations to generate new products and…


Proper vaccine storage and handling have been an essential factor in preventing and eradicating many common vaccine-preventable diseases. Failure to regulate a vaccine’s temperature can reduce its potency, resulting in inadequate immune responses in patients and reduced protection against diseases. Providers in programs must pay close attention to the cold chain to prevent vaccines from being exposed to temperatures outside the recommended ranges.

Temperature Monitoring Devices (TMDs) eliminate this problem by providing accurate information from monitoring temperature conditions inside refrigerator and freezer storage units.

The Challenges of Poor Maintenance of Cold Chain for Vaccines
