Working The Cloud | The Ultimate Online Guide for Business Energy Storage - EASE - European Association for Storage of Energy Repair Cafe - A community project to repair, recycle, reuse What do you do with a chair when the leg has come loose? With a light that no longer works? Toss it? You can repair it at the Repair Café. Repair Cafés are free meeting places and they’re all about repairing things (together). Why a Repair Café? We throw away vast amounts of stuff. Repair Café is changing all that! Repair Café teaches people to see their possessions in a new light. But most of all, Repair Café just wants to show how much fun repairing things can be, and how easy it often is. The Goodlife Centre The Goodlife Centre’s light and airy workspace in Waterloo is an ideal environment for a Repair Café, which is free to attend. The types of items that might be suitable to be repaired and reused include small items of furniture, electrical appliances, bicycles, crockery and toys. The Goodlife Centre is about sharing practical knowledge and learning traditional skills for life and this is very much in line with the values of the Repair Café concept. The Restart Project

OPAC The Computerized Catalogue has replaced the old Card Drawer System in libraries that have been computerized. It lets you browse items by author, title, subject, class or ISBN number and a Keyword search is included as well. Another major advantage of this service is that one can browse items not only pertaining to the library from where he/she is making the search but is automatically browsing all the material that is present in all the Public Libraries (and the National Library) both in Malta and Gozo. Clients are also informed of whether the item in question is available or is currently on loan, for example. Projet | CANOPEA - Solar Decathlon Europe - Madrid 2012 Comment une ville peut-elle combiner la vie sur un territoire géographiquement limité et le confort individuel tout en étant proche de la nature ? La Team Rhône-Alpes développe CANOPEA®: un projet d’habitat écologique innovant, en lice pour la compétition internationale Solar Decathlon Europe 2012. Le projet de la Team Rhône-Alpes propose un collectif de petits immeubles, appelés « Home-towers », qui s’inscrit dans un quartier. Cet écosystème, inspiré de la canopée – étage supérieur de la forêt captant 95% de l’énergie solaire et 30% des précipitations – présente quatre caractéristiques qui font écho aux enjeux du milieu rhônalpin et plus largement aux métropoles : Un confort individuel recréé dans un collectif : chaque immeuble, composé au maximum de 10 étages pour une densité maîtrisée, est présenté comme une imbrication d’espaces individuels, où un étage correspond à un appartement.

Salvage Supperclub teaches us how to eat everything Josh Treuhaft wants to show people how to eat everything by inviting them to dinner. The creator of the Salvage Supperclub, Treuhaft aims to reduce food waste by addressing the problem on a number of fronts. The supperclub serves up unsalable foods of all kinds, which are collected from farmers markets, co-ops, restaurants and even sometimes friends' fridges. The event not only prevents these items from ending up in the landfill (or compost bin), but also provides guests with the opportunity to learn how to eat unusual, ugly and elderly produce. The Salvage Supperclub may seem like just another way to eat adventurously in Brooklyn, but Treuhaft’s primary interest is in sustainability. Treuhaft said that one of the major contributors to food waste is what we’re willing to eat as consumers. © Josh Treuhaft One of the ways Treuhaft hopes to expand our food profile is by serving guests items they might not think are edible, like cauliflower greens, carrot tops and broccoli stalks.
