    Money is constantly evolving. Take a family spanning three generations, for example. The oldest member, or the grandparent, grew up using paper currency for everything. The middle generation was raised using bills and coins, switched to checks for a few years, and eventually transitioned to cards. Meanwhile, the youngest generation rarely touches cash, grew up using cards, and is even comfortable utilizing mobile payments such as PayPal or Venmo. This evolution has occurred because money is a living concept, and as such, it changes based on society’s need to constantly create something that is more efficient, versatile and secure.

    The North Sea and Gulf of Mexico (United States) are home to the largest number of offshore oil rigs, totaling 184 and 175 rigs, respectively. Here, fossil fuels – dating back hundreds of millions of years – are extracted from the earth to contribute to the estimated 3.9 billion gallons of crude oil the world uses each day. Historically, these sites have been among the most remote and dangerous locations on the planet. The industry as a whole has also been slower to embrace emerging technologies. However, the growing demand for efficiency and safer production, as well as a shrinking workforce, have forced the inception of a digital transformation. Advancements in technology and communication have made oil sites safer and, in a sense, less isolated. State-of-the-art sensors and IoT solutions have helped to drastically reduce the deaths and injuries, while also lessening the likelihood of environmental disasters.

    As parents, we’re always seeking to keep our children safe. The world they’re growing up in today is unlike the one we knew. The times have changed, and so have the dangers. But with this change has also come evolving technologies and solutions that can help keep our children safe, even when we’re not there. When appropriately and strategically deployed in schools, physical security solutions could deter bullying, vandalism, acts of violence and even unhealthy and risky behaviors such as vaping (yes, there are now “vape detectors” that can detect nicotine vapor not discerned by smoke detectors).
