If there's a person who knows a thing or two about falling, it's Jessie Graff. But for the American Ninja Warrior phenom, the important part is getting back up. Through a new video series called Stunt Sitter, Graff teaches self-described "helicopter" parents how to let kids take risks and even - gasp - fail.

(One uncomfortable class project: Having your worst failures projected onto a large screen in the campus hub. Ouch.)
While the forensic analysis of this weekend's British Airways outage is still some time away, the airline's woes are a good reminder of why we need robust systems in place to protect the systems and data that underpin our businesses.
