Update on Me and Clean Fuel from Garbage

Sorry it's been a while since my last post. I knew my posting would slow down once classes started. this semester I'm taking Managment Principles for Information Technology Professionals. I was pretty busy last weekend installing my new iMac! It's a great machine, and the final puchase for my new revamped home office. (Although I may be shopping around for an area carpet when I get some spare cash.)

I'd like to pass along to you this interesting story about researchers from the State University of New York College of Environmental Science and Forestry who are turning garbage from Syracuse University dining halls into biodiesel fuel.

Random Blog Visit 9
Wes in Europe

Ever want to spend your summer vacation in Europe? Yeah, well me, too. Not ever having the opportunity, this summer I lived vicariously through the adventures of a young man from the U.S. Mid-west named, you guessed it, Wes.

Wes's travels take him to Italy, The Alps, Berlin, Hamburg, Frankfurt and London. But don't think it's all leisure time for Wes, through the blog he documents his performing arts studies in Hamburg.

Wrong, Wrong, Wrong

While I try to avoid using my blog for political purposes, because I'm interested in environmental issues, I just can't let this one go. John McCain's choice of Alaskan Governor Sarah Palin is wrong on so many levels, but he's actually found a running-mate whose record on backing big oil over the environment is WORSE than President Bush's!!! The Governor actually argues that polar bears don't need protection!

Sierra Club Executive Director, Carl Pope says, "With the pick of Alaska Governor Sarah Palin for his running mate, John McCain's race towards the Bush administration's failed energy policy is now complete." Furthermore Palin over stepped her authority as governor to advocate against a clean water initiative.

I just don't understand how someone like Palin, who identifies so strongly with being a "mom" can justify selling out her homeland's future to big oil and mining interests.
