The Rise of Solar Gardens

Originally posted on Deeper Green Blog:

At this point, it’s impossible for even the most ardent old school energy guys to hide from the bright sunny truth that solar energy is blazing a new path in the U.S.  It’s easy to choose from a multitude of statistics that support this point. For example, as of the third quarter of last year, solar had made up more than 1/3rd of all new generating capacity built in the country. That would have been unimaginable just a few short years back. Here’s another – 6,500 MW of solar was expected online for 2014, a 36% growth over the previous year.  And one more – the industry is 3x as big as it was just three years ago and growth is only expected to accelerate.

Solar’s growth has been fueled by on-site installations on commercial, government and residential properties as well as utility scale projects. These two drivers will…

Here’s How Enterprise Apps Can Increase Your Company’s Productivity Jacquie Pirnie

Originally posted on Technopreneurph:

One of the dilemmas facing businesses today is improving productivity. While many companies are working with a leaner workforce, employees have to work smarter to get more things accomplished in a day.

And, enterprise apps may be just the ticket for helping employees be more productive. In fact, in a recent survey by Mobile Helix, the vast majority of companies in the US and UK that participated in a survey revealed that their employees want more enterprise apps from their company.

Most will agree that enterprise apps enhance mobility. When employees are stuck at a desk for the entire day, they tend to become less productive over time. However, when they are free to move about and work from a variety of locations, they usually end up working longer hours getting more accomplished during their times of peak performance.

If you’re one of the few that doesn’t agree, consider that…

In the Democratic Republic of Congo, martial arts help children get away from fighting

Originally posted on Stories of UNICEF Innovation:

By Mehdi Meddeb

The recruitment and use of children in armed forces is a violation of international law, and children who are recruited and forced to fight and kill suffer profound physical and psychological damage. Children not Soldiers, launched in 2014 by Leila Zerrougui, the Special Representative of the Secretary-General for Children and Armed Conflict, and UNICEF, is a campaign to make all government armed forces child-free by 2016.

In the Democratic Republic of Congo, capoeira, a Brazilian martial arts form, has had a positive impact in helping children demobilized from armed forces to make the transition away from military life and reintegrate with their families and communities. 

GOMA, Democratic Republic of Congo, 11 February 2015 – “Aie! Aie! Isso!” Ninja gives the rally cry, and dozens of children rush forward at the instructor’s call. All of them already have their abadá, the white trousers of capoeira players. The…

Innovative IDEAS to solve world issues

Originally posted on ~ L to the Aura ~:

I have decided to start an IDEAS section for this blog, dedicated to exploring solutions to world problems which have yet to be solved. No problem is too big. Roll up your sleeves with me, and dive in fearlessly to tackle big issues, share relevant information, brainstorm ideas, and compassionately encourage others to do the same.

If you have a sustainable or compassionate problem (big or small) you would like solved, please note it below! I will be selecting a different topic each month for discussion. Additionally, a social media challenge will be launched each month to increase awareness about the issue chosen.

This IDEAS area is a safe place – all ideas, however seemingly unrealistic, are welcomed. Additionally, information generated from this section is free for entrepreneurs and innovators to pursue – in fact that is the point!

Lets change the world…one IDEA at a time.


**If you (or others you know) are interested in brainstorming or…

Hello – June in Siberia – Mark Berube and The Patriotic Few

Alo Alo,

We’re excited to present to you our new video for the song Above the Ground It was inspired by the work of Scottish artist Andy Goldsworthy. Maybe you’ve heard of his installation when he brought giant snow balls into downtown London, England back in June, 2000. He creates the temporary in a way that you won’t easily forget. Since the song Above the Ground touches on the subject of how we are temporary in all our faults and glory, so it seemed like a natural fit. We hope you enjoy it.
