Dixie Green

In 2001, Bart Slawson heard a lot of people say a€oeyou cana€™t do that.a€A An environmental lawyer in Birmingham, Alabama (a phrase that seems like an oxymoron to most), he decided to equip his 2,500 sq. ft. house with a photovoltaic (solar electric) system. a€oeCoal power seems cheap until you realize theya€™re destroying the whole state of West Virginia to get it,a€A he says.
At the time, no other residence in Alabama produced power from the sun. a€oeIta€™s not that people around here dona€™t care,a€A Bart says. a€oeIta€™s that they dona€™t know whata€™s possible. Solar panels are rarer than liberals here.a€A

Tire Paths

Cheri Heramb with the Chicago Department of Transportation said the aim of the initiative is to become the "greenest city in the world."

Chicago is taking one more step toward that goal with new green infrastructure technology.

The DOT has kicked off a pilot program to test 550 feet of recycled rubber sidewalk over the next year, right across the street from the Chicago Center for Green Technology on the city’s West Side.

Anarchy

"The hallmark of an anarchist society is one where no man may legally compel someone who is not a convicted criminal to do anything, since that would be aggression against an innocent man’s person or property."

USB Cel Phones

About this time last year, we noted that South Korea was solidifying its leadership in the mobile realm by mandating that handsets sold there have standardized charging and data cable ports, simplifying a hassle for consumers, and potentially slashing sales of high-margin accessories. Now, China appears to be trying the same thing, saying handsets sold there should be able to charge via USB. Given the growing importance of China to overseas handset vendors, if the government enforces this new rule (no deadline’s been set for compliance), it could signal a significant shift worldwide.
