    On Friday, the whole internet went berserk after the unfortunate event that Google's search engine had gone completely missing. Google's search engine has been the pioneer in routing the user to their desired search results for the last two decades. In the late evening, Google Search had completely disappeared, leaving no trace. Google's CEO Sundar Pichai tweeted that he has informed the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) about this and they have organized a dedicated search party to find the lost victim. Google Search was last seen by a seven-year-old child from Mombassa, Kenya, who was luckily willing to speak to authorities and investigators alike. When he talked to the reporters, he said, "Google was exhausted from working all its life and wanted to quit." Another source also stated that there is a chance that Google Search might have been kidnapped for ransom, and that its owner Pichai is expected to be contacted within two days.

    Alan W. Cramb didn’t always think he would wind up as the president of a university, never mind any pre-set plans for the Illinois Institute of Technology. In fact, he’s regarded all of his career positions as just points in his life — never themselves the goal or self-defining  — as a journey of sorts. The native of Saltcoats, Scotland, a small town about 20 miles out from Glasgow, went to lengths to remind us that there’s a person behind his job title, after all.

    In the life, there will always be the moments when you feel lost and will have to discover how to recreate yourselves. If you encounter a major shift, such as quitting your work, losing a relationship, adapting to a bigger home, or loss of a loved one, this could happen. You can have to explore alternative ways of understanding or doing stuff, or risk striving to meet your maximum potential, if you really going through a big change in your life. You get three options whenever anything terrible happens. You could let it describe you, you could let it kill you, or you could just let it reinforce you.

    Do you know our brain could concentrate on something continuously only for eight to 12 seconds? We all face this serious issue in our lives daily, that is to get distracted in the most important times. Our minds are tuned in a way that we spend almost every day adhering to the chaotic schedule and drifting along in the whims of unnecessary mobile phone contents. But all of a sudden, one day when we are asked to focus on something important such as to prepare for an exam, we struggle. Although we could counter this over time by getting busy loaded with work without any choice, we still would struggle. We must train our brain to get distracted constructively and the distraction too would be beneficial to us.

    Today, the words "innovation" and "creativity" are commonly mentioned in postsecondary learning. How can we foster creativity and innovation within ourselves and in our lecturers? Reimers-Hild and King (2009) defined innovation elements as enjoyable, innovative, varied, cohesive, and spontaneous. Tiny actions toward this aim are best to go, so there must be encouragement and support. Risk taking, and even seeing defeat as "energy for innovation," can help foster this approach (Ryshke, 2012). When something doesn't work, we can grow from it, adapt it, and try again.
