Things Looking Up For Polar Bear

It's never too late to mend. In that way I would also have titled this post because at first sight, what Mr. Bush some time agreed with his colleagues, today is mended by Mr. Obama. Here you have a piece of information sometime ago. I've got the information below  from an e-newsletter of the Center for Biological Diversity.

"In the days since the inauguration of President Obama, the outlook for polar bears and the global climate has dramatically improved. For one thing, nine states -- including California, Oregon, New York, and Massachusetts -- have joined a Center for Biological Diversity lawsuit to overturn the Bush administration's order prohibiting federal agencies from protecting polar bears from global warming through the Endangered Species Act. In addition, the Obama administration has ordered all federal agencies to consider settling lawsuits filed against Bush policies (many of which, ahem, were brought by the Center) instead of defending the bad actions in court. Hopefully our new president -- who's already pushing for enforcement of fuel-efficiency standards and a stimulus package that would help green energy -- will decide to reverse Bush's polar bear-killing policies."

And to add some more information, here you have two links: the first and the second.

Sever Suzuki - You Are What You Do and Not What You Say

One of the aims of this blog, is giving knowledge of the people who are able of  doing something for this blue ball, lost somewhere in Universe, and make of it a more worthy place to live. In this way, today is the turn to Sever Suzuki, who in spite of being a teenager in the video, more than one who was in the room was uncomfortable, or at least something inside them began to move before such an amazing speech. I'm not going to give you more explanations because when you listen to her, you will get the message, it is, the point. In another words: the message is excellent.

The same thing that happened in such room, I hope to be happened at least with one of you when watching the video.

Something Happened in Las Vegas

CES is the world's largest consumer technology tradeshow. With the digital conversion deadline approaching next month, these undead TV Zombies and their toxins are lurking around Las Vegas hoping to get a hold of some of the shiny new electronics on display.

Thanks to the impending zombie invasion, it seems that Panasonic, Sharp and Toshiba have finally stepped up to the plate by announcing, last January 9th, that they will launch a 50-state recycling program by the end of the month.
