LIVE REAL TIME SATELLITE TRACKING AND PREDICTIONS 100 Ways to Serve Others I’ve continued to be inspired by people’s 100 lists and you’ve probably seen many that I’ve highlighted in recent resource lists. Dragos wrote one that triggered me to write another with his excellent post on 100 tips to write huge lists. This list is on my favorite subject and while the length of these lists makes them quite a challenge to make, this particular subject is one I’ve spent a lot of time thinking about and writing goals in so its a great topic for me to tackle in a list. Anyway, I’m thrilled to have this list completed and can’t wait to experience and see the results of personally doing every single one on the list. 1. This is a great habit to develop to start each and every day and to practice whenever you have the chance. 2. Simple things are a great way to serve others and these little things can really make a great difference. 3. I mean when it comes to transportation or as a physical destination. 4. 5. 6. People have car trouble all the time. 7. 8. 9. 10. 11. 12.

Milan’s Vertical Forest Wednesday, 12 October 2011 GreenMuze Staff Milan’s Vertical Forest from Stefan Boeri Architects. The Bosco Verticale (Vertical Forest) will be the greenest building in Milan when completed, which is one of Europe’s most polluted cities. Designed by Stefan Boeri Architects, as part of their BioMilano vision to incorporate 60 abandoned farms into a greenbelt surrounding the city. The Bosco Verticale building has a green façade planted with dense forest systems to provide a building microclimate and to filter out polluting dust particles. The living bio-canopy also absorbs CO2, oxygenates the air, moderates extreme temperatures and lowers noise pollution, providing aesthetic beauty and lowering living costs. Each apartment balcony will have trees (900 plantings are planned for the two buildings) that will provide shade in the summer and drop their leaves in winter to allow in winter sunlight.

Life Check: What Are Your Life Patterns? Recently I watched a video of Ray Kurzweil’s presentation on TED where he explained the exponential growth of technology. The number of transistors in a chip, for instance, increases exponentially over time. As a result, projects like Human Genome Project took much less time to complete than the initial expectation. There is a statement in the video that interests me. Kurzweil said that while a single technological event seems chaotic, as a whole those events reveal a clear pattern. I believe a similar thing happens in life. The problem is we often take single events too seriously. What you should do is looking for the patterns in your life. So do a life check by looking for your life patterns. 1. I wrote previously that passions are essential for achieving success. Looking at your life patterns will help you find your passions. What were the moments that make you excited? 2. Looking at how your life has been helps you project how your life will be. 3. Photo by gailf548

Can’t decided whether you’re a cat person or a dog person? Want a pet that will play fetch and come running to the sound of its name, but also knows how to use the litter? Well, now you can have the look of the former with the personality of the latter! In an attempt to engineer a punky alternative to the small domestic cat, a Bengal breeder created something extraordinary. The Savannah is the largest hybrid Serval/domestic cat, born in 1986 and registered as a true breed in 2001 by TICA (The International Cat Association).
