Who’d like to live under the sea? 15 Apr 3:00am Who’d like to live under the sea?
The Guardian
Plenty of people, according to Phil Nuytten, the man who has designed and plans to build a city beneath the waves Phil Nuytten first decided he wanted to spend his life underwater when he was six years old. It was 1947. The Second World War had only recently ended. Nuytten’s dad had scored a job at Boeing, and the firm’s office in Vancouver Harbour was just a short walk away from the family home. Every now and then Nuytten would waltz down to the harbour unaccompanied, sneak out to the end of the docks, peer through the cracks and fall hopelessly in love with what he saw: fish, anemones, a teeming underworld. “I used to think: ‘Gosh, wouldn’t it be wonderful to go down there?’” he says. “To go down to that particular place?” I used to think, ‘Gosh, wouldn’t it be wonderful to go down there, to that particular place?'

15 Apr 1:05am A quick note to say thank you… to the people who criticised me
The Guardian
Aamir Shahzad, a doctor in County Cork, says the family and friends who said he was wrong helped make him a better person Criticism is always hard to take at the time, but looking back I can see now how much I have benefited from it. So I want to say thank you to all those people – family members, friends, colleagues – who said I was getting things wrong. As you go through life, especially when you’re still at college and in junior roles, there are people around you who aren’t happy with you and the way you do things. Some encourage you to do it better, others just think you’re deficient. But the important thing is, rather than argue with these people and what they think of you, try to take from their comments what you don’t know, so you can learn from them.
