Discover Your Home Energy Use, Minute by Minute

Your house. You might not be there, but right now it’s still slurping up energy. How many appliances around your house stay on all the time? There’s the fridge, of course. But there’s also the DVD player, the phone, the computer. And don’t forget the oven and microwave clocks. Not […]

Soccer Sunshine: Game On in Africa’s Largest Slum

The World Cup finals are Sunday and, if you’re like me, you’ll think nothing of picking up the remote and tuning into the game. In fact, as usual, I probably won’t think much of flipping a lot of switches this weekend – my coffee-maker, laptop, electric lights; hell, my Prius, […]
