Lets do it…Mappin’s promotional video is now open to public eyes!
I recently came across an awesome new site, recent graduate of the Dogpatch Labs incubator in New York City - Practically Green.(www.PracticallyGreen.com)
Practically Green is an awesome too to help see how “green” your life is, as well as, diagnose your problem areas, and set you on a course for a greener future.
They utilize a diagnostic tool that provides users with a “current” status on their green living, as well as a proprietary engine that generates a customized set of recommendations designed to help people reduce energy, save water, reduce exposure to household toxins, and preserve natural resources. The service also allows to share with their friends and neighbors via their personal online social networks.
An awesome tool to find simple ways to Greenify your life!
Hello all, and Happy New Year!
Its been a while since my last post, but I wanted to come back to 2012 FRESH! And with awesome news for you!
Recently, I read some great material on the emergence of high-speed rail systems throughout Europe, the UK, and Asia.
These things are AWESOME! With speeds of up to 250mph, there are sure to change the way we think about traveling.
The EU and UK just signed off on a new 250 billion dollar cross-continental high-speed rail. This is undoubtedly going to change the way people travel across Europe and into the UK, drastically cutting down the emission caused by domestic travel.
They noted that in 2009, there were a little over 3900 kilometers of rail. And by 2020, there will be over 9000 kilometers of rail systems running throughout Europe.
Can you say…WOW!
