Waterloo firm’s emergency beacons can save lives and money

Waterloo firm’s emergency beacons can save lives and money | The Inner Musings of the Hound's Wife | Scoop.it

The small Waterloo company designs and makes digital 406-megahertz emergency locator transmitter beacons under the brand name SkyHunter406. The beacons can more precisely pinpoint the location of a plane that has crashed in the bush; at the same time, they cut down on the millions of dollars that taxpayers spend each year on false search-and-rescue missions.

High-tech startups are a local way of life | The Inner Musings of the Hound's Wife | Scoop.it
We have spirited discussions when choosing cover art for our annual Technology Spotlight. Last year’s magazine cover captured the exuberance of young  entrepreneurs chasing their dreams. It was the perfect way to visualize the high-flying aspirations of a new generation of thinkers.

 

This year, we decided to shoot for the moon."

Thalmic Labs: Canada’s hottest startup | The Inner Musings of the Hound's Wife | Scoop.it

"As a country of small businesses, it’s no surprise that Canada is positively dripping with technology startups. The ironic problem is it can be difficult for any one company to stand out from the crowd.   That’s not an issue for Thalmic Labs. Talk to experts for their opinions on which is the country’s hottest startup right now and the Waterloo, Ont.-based company’s name keeps coming up."

It’s hard to be bored living in Waterloo Region

It’s hard to be bored living in Waterloo Region | The Inner Musings of the Hound's Wife | Scoop.it

".....I get pretty passionate when I hear people say that they’re bored in K-W, because I don’t get it. I know that some of these people grew up in Toronto where, granted, there is always a ton to do. But, both Toronto and London are little more than an hour away on a good traffic day. We’re central to many places.

 

I guess entertainment depends on your interests, but I find there are too many things going on in K-W and I often have to turn down some of them. From May to October, there is a festival just about every weekend both in Kitchener-Waterloo and the surrounding countryside, from the Elmira maple syrup festival to the apple butter and cheese festival, Jazz Fest to the Blues Festival, and Savour Stratford to Oktoberfest, among many others.


And when festival season ends, you can find live music somewhere any night of the week for the cost of a pint of beer. You can watch indie movies at the Princess, catch a performance at the Kitchener-Waterloo Symphony, a musical at the Centre in the Square, or take a walk, cross-country ski or skate at any one of the parks that K-W offers. It’s rare to see green space in a city, and we have a lot of it.

 

We have recreation complexes, local sports to both watch and participate in, knowledge hubs like the universities and the Perimeter Institute that regularly host lectures and workshops, and not just one, but two farmers’ markets.

 

We educate students, innovate technologies, and attract tourists and famous intellectuals.

 

Some people complain that the food scene is lacking in Kitchener-Waterloo, but it’s on the up-and-up, and there is certainly something for everyone. With food festivals and celebrity chefs making visits, the food scene in K-W is getting more attention and could soon explode.

And when you just want a night in, Kitchener-Waterloo doesn’t have the hustle, bustle and noise that larger cities have. It’s large enough that there’s something for everyone to do, but small enough that you can get some peace and quiet. And the country is just a short jaunt away.

 

Just as I expressed in an editorial in July why I’m proud to be Canadian, these reasons and more are why I love living in Kitchener-Waterloo and am proud to call it my home."
