App: “Slack”

Slack is an application that allows users to interact digitally with each other. The app promotes communication and collaboration within a team, and is available via smartphone and as a website. Once added to a workspace, users are able to message each other directly as well or create subsequent channels of interaction. Whether you’re running a small group or a large enterprise, Slack will improve the communication of your team. – Michael Brock


Movie: “North by Northwest”

This 1959 Alfred Hitchcock film is a classic and a true testament to the thriller and suspense genres. New York City ad executive Roger O. Thornhill (Cary Grant) is mistaken for a government agent and taken on a wild goose chase through the countryside by the spy, Phillip Vandamm (James Mason). Hitchcock uses clever camera angles and an intense soundtrack to build suspense in a way that is no longer present in most films. This is a must watch for all film fanatics. – Richard N. Clark IV
