A sustainable, thriving, green planet.
That's the goal for us as a species. To live in a world where we receive our energy needs without polluting the air, water, or land.
The three main sources of clean energy are solar, wind, and water. To utilize them, we need materials from the earth; materials like lithium for solar batteries to store energy from solar panels.
The only way to get the materials needed to build solar panels, batteries, and wind turbines is to mine them from the ground.
Mining is a necessary industry, but it’s an unclean industry.
The mining processes…
Cats out of the bag.
Images of Microsoft’s Windows 11 operating system (OS) have been leaked online. The screenshots were uploaded on a Chinese website called Baidu. The pictures show a glimpse of what the new OS will look like.
The main change noticed in the pictures was the taskbar. Microsoft has moved the apps and Start button to the center of the taskbar. This looks really clean and simple from where it was in Windows 10. You do have the option to move it back to the left if you want.
Another new aesthetic Microsoft included is making the…
Well, this was bound to happen.
We knew this would happen one day. Just didn't know when; until now.
Microsoft will be ending its support for Windows 10 on October 14, 2025. It has been 10 years since the release of the operating system (OS) (Wow, long time). Microsoft announced the end date for Windows 10 on their support life cycle page.
According to Thurrott, this is the first time Microsoft has described the end of its OS. In the past, they would document their end of support for only specific versions. …
U.S. lawmakers revealed a wide range of antitrust agenda back on Friday aimed to rein in the competitive power of tech giants like Google, Apple, Amazon, and Facebook. This has been a result of more than a year’s worth of investigating the competition in the digital marketplace, the bills target what lawmakers are calling “unregulated power wielded” by Big Tech.
The purpose of these five bills is to break down tech giants, which have a huge influence in almost every aspect of the online space. If these bills passed into law, it will make it much easier for the government…
Doing laundry is a mundane task.
Throw your clothes in the washer, pour a cap full of laundry detergent, press start, and walk away.
Not much thought is put into doing the laundry.
We don’t think of the impact it has on the environment.
Let’s take a look at what laundry detergent is made of and how it impacts the environment.
What Chemicals Are In Laundry Detergent
Took the plunge and enrolled in the Understanding Plants-Part 1: What a Plant Knows on Coursera. Decided to make this move because I want to transition from a career in IT to a career in Environmental Science.
There’re other subjects in Environmental Science that interest me. Ecology, Biology, Environmental Economics, Plant Science, and Chemistry just to name a few. For now, I’ll start at the foundation which I think are plants and this course is a great place to start learning.
The course is offered by Tel Aviv University and taught by Professor Daniel Chamovitz, Ph.D. …
Our planet is going through a lot of changes. Pollution in the air and water are on the rise, storms are becoming more chaotic and severe every year, and more animals are becoming endangered or have already become extinct.
A lot of the damages done to the earth is from our doing. We are the ones polluting the air and water, indirectly putting animals endangered of becoming extinct or already are. It appears we don’t care about other live forms on this plant. I have one question for humanity:
Are you willing to make sacrifices to save and protect the…
Do you find the sport of golf relaxing?
I never played 18-hole golf before, but I have gone to a gold range like Top Golf with some friends in Houston.
I had a lot of fun and I’m sure it would be the same amount of fun on the golf course. From what I can tell living close to one, the people playing are having a great time.
You’re out in nature with the sun shining bright with no clouds in the sky, cool breeze hitting your face, and spending time with friends. …
I cut out meat like pork and beef from my diet months ago when I found out they were bad for my health. Numerous studies and research have found that eating meat like beef and pork are the leading causes of diseases like heart disease, diabetes, and high blood pressure. Clearly, consuming these animal products isn’t healthy for our bodies.
There’s an understanding now that eating meat is bad for our bodies and switching to a plant-based diet is much better for us. However, does shutting down the production of meat and dairy have an effect on the environment? …
Feel like you aren’t going enough to clean the environment?
We do everything we can to make sure our homes are clean. We mop, sweep, vacuum, and dust. However, we seem to fall behind when it comes to cleaning the planet.
We leave trash all over the streets, dump plastic in our oceans, and emit a lot of carbon dioxide to poison our air. We need to do better.
We need to clean up our planet like we clean up our houses. What can we do to clean our planet? …
