Narwhals and Octonauts
I probably never would have know what a Narwhal was if it wasn’t for watching an episode of Octonauts with my young (at the time) daughter. Narwhals are toothed whales with a large “tusk” from a protruding tooth.
The image featured above is a beautiful picture of Narwhals taken by National Geographic photographer Paul Nicklen. The Narwhals are taking a breather in an ice hole near Baffin Island. The picture won National Geographic’s “Animals in their environment” winner in the 2007 Wildlife Photographer of the Year Contest.
This picture was also featured in the White House’s posting on Medium defending why the Obama Administration is doing everything it can to protect the environment and the Arctic.
Here’s the Octonaut’s episode on the Narwhal, enjoy it with a young person and learn more about this unusual and beautiful animal.

Microsoft Outlook Preview available for Android
Microsoft Outlook is now available for Android as a preview in the Google Play Store. I just installed it on my Samsung Galaxy S3. Here’s the “Add an Account” screen. At first glance there doesn’t appear to be any integration of Outlook contacts with contacts in Android.
Hopefully they are working on that.
Here’s the link to the app on Google Play. It’s hard to find just searching on Google Play as there are other similar apps from Microsoft such as Outlook.com and OWA for Android which are different applications!
