Smart grid is an exciting term that comes up a lot these days. But what does it actually mean? I sat down last week with Roger Duncan, general manager of Austin Energy, one of the most innovative utilities in the nation. Taking a wide view of the electric grid of the future – one that will likely see increased demand from electrified cars – Mr. Duncan envisions a triangle of consumption and production, its three points being the utility; homes and buildings; and the transportation sector.
The male gender is in danger, with incalculable consequences for both humans and wildlife, startling scientific research from around the world reveals. The research – to be detailed tomorrow in the most comprehensive report yet published – shows that a host of common chemicals is feminising males of every class of vertebrate animals, from fish to mammals, including people.
Talk about a serious transformation! VaST, a Colorado-based a+d firm, purchased an old porn shop earlier this year — the building was located close to Boulder — and completely gutted the place. VaST took all that out and set a new standard in using green materials, particularly salvaged and unique materials.

Plus, they’ve just added solar panels to supply a portion of the building’s energy … check out the particulars of the renovation.

On this fateful occasion it seems he was just `too generous` with the amount of Lynx Vice underarm spray deodorant he applied.

I don’t even know what you call the latest marketing ploy by the coal industry lobby group the American Coalition for Clean Coal Electricity (ACCCE). But if there’s one thing that is for certain it’s that ACCCE has way too much time and money on their hands. I encourage you to check out ACCCE’s Clean Coal Carolers – I really don’t mind sending a bunch of traffic their way because this latest publicity stunt is absolutely absurd and shows just how far the coal lobby is willing to go to market their dirty product as somehow being clean. In fact, I think you should send this to everyone you know, show them how ridiculous this clean coal marketing has actually become.
