Brad Krause: Animator, Illustrator, Teacher and Man of Excellence

To be an artist is to be blessed with innate talent and incredible discipline; the sort of patience that reveals itself with every faded mark of the partial erasure of pencil, pen or ink, where the constant refinement of a two-dimensional image – the detailed seam in the illustrated musculature of a model, or the grooves of a newly patented gear or the minimalist elegance of a consumer electronic – come to life. To be that artist, and to be just as adept with the digital tools responsible for creating three-dimensional works of dynamic color and movement, is to know Brad Krause. An OnCall expert, Brad is many things – a consultant, a teacher, a designer, an illustrator and an art

Tzachi Chen: The Financial Advisor You Need for the Challenges You Face

The immigrant's story is a tale of hope and innocence – and bravery, too. It is part of North American folklore, a journey across a continent and an ocean, formerly by train and steamship and now by jetliner; where the hardships of the Old World, the barren farmlands and abandoned villages and the political riots and displaced people, are like one long film reel, visible from the passenger window of a locomotive or miniaturized, beneath the clouds, from 30,000 feet. It is in the New World, where each of us can start anew. It is in this world, where Tzachi Chen prospers. His story is not without its share of challenges and hardships: A Canadian by choice, with his family as his only (

The World’s Experts at Your Call: The Power of OnCall

The best forms of technology are not just revolutionary in practice; they are transformational by design and description. Think (Different) about the release, on October 23, 2001, of the iPod and its six-word summary of social change and individual empowerment: "One thousand songs in your pocket." That event is a commercial milestone and a triumph for consumers. In the near-decade-and-a-half since that occasion – in the years following the debut of that iconic device, with its monochromatic screen and rotary flywheel – we can celebrate the miniaturization and personalization of everything from cell phones and digital music players to the dawn of slender tablets and sleek laptops.
