E-MAILS

The stress of e-mails
(YouTube)
"People of my generation learned long-distance communication in two forms: talking on the phone and writing a letter. Later, we learned to type up business letters,
and when email came about, it was considered just another way to write a personal or business letter. But those who grew up with email, instant messaging,
and texting look at those things differently, with email now being the most formal means of communication. And that can be stressful, as Domics explains in this video."

We need more men like Sullenberger—men of great character—in the world today. He was one cool cookie when most of us would have been freaking out.
He did his job most likely as good as anyone in the world could have done; he was 100% professional, calm, cool, and collected.
Like he said, his entire life was in preparation to handle that one particular moment..."
