Top 10 eco-buildings Dalby Forest visitor centre, North Yorkshire What do yoghurt pots, old Wellington boots and mobile phones have in common? They were all recycled and used to make the reception desk of this super-green new visitor centre. Old tyres and inner tubes make up the roof cover and what's more, the whole building can be entirely recycled at the end of its life. The forest next door is proving handy – it supplies wood chips to power the boiler and is also where the wood used to clad the building came from.
The Greening of the Self By Joanna Macy / filmsforaction.org Something important is happening in our world that you are not going to read about in the newspapers. I consider it the most fascinating and hopeful development of our time, and it is one of the reasons I am so glad to be alive today. It has to do with what is occurring to the notion of the self. The self is the metaphoric construct of identity and agency, the hypothetical piece of turf on which we construct our strategies for survival, the notion around which we focus our instincts for self-preservation, our needs for self-approval, and the boundaries of our self-interest. bridal shower game idea with printable i can’t believe “wedding season” is almost here! yay! if you’re looking for a Bridal Shower game, here’s a fun one for you!

Radical new economic system will emerge from collapse of capitalism At the very moment of its ultimate triumph, capitalism will experience the most exquisite of deaths. This is the belief of political adviser and author Jeremy Rifkin, who argues the current economic system has become so successful at lowering the costs of production that it has created the very conditions for the destruction of the traditional vertically integrated corporation. Rifkin, who has advised the European Commission, the European Parliament and heads of state, including German chancellor Angela Merkel, says: No one in their wildest imagination, including economists and business people, ever imagined the possibility of a technology revolution so extreme in its productivity that it could actually reduce marginal costs to near zero, making products nearly free, abundant and absolutely no longer subject to market forces.
