Thousands of New Yorkers have realized how much sense switching over to solar power at home makes these days, and those numbers are growing fast. There are so many reasons to switch over to solar power, and none opposing. At a fundamental level, current fuel-based power standards are inherently flawed in every way, and solar panels are the simple solution that works. In order to understand why going solar is so important, and how to do it on the cheap, it is important to first understand why the current system is broken.
Fossil fuels are a natural resource that cannot be reproduced. That means when we run out of them, we are out for good. For this reason alone it is essential that we start exploring other home energy options, but that is only the beginning. When we use these fossil fuels, we are releasing greenhouse gas emissions into the air, which is causing serious environmental catastrophes on a global scale. The global warming that has been so prevalent in the news lately is due mainly to the harvesting and using of fossil fuels. Read the rest of this entry »

There are plenty of reasons why it is so important for all of us to start making significant changes in the way we live our lives and in the way that we think about this planet. Far too often so many of us are short-sighted and do not consider the future. While our behavior may not result in substantial issues during our lifetime, we must always remember that our children and our children’s children are relying on us to provide a safe place for them to live.
When we rely on fossil fuels to generate the electricity that we require for our modern lives, we are directly contributing to many prominent environmental concerns, including global temperature shifts. Now that we can see how burning coal and petroleum is so harmful to the atmosphere, it is our duty to start implementing changes that allow us to reduce – and eventually completely stop – burning our planet’s natural resources.

Only time can reveal what the future holds, but if we continue to burn coal in order to fuel our energy usage, it is certain that the future will be far less bright, as our ozone layer and eco-system are damaged by the fossil fuels emitted as a result of coal burning.
Fortunately, there is still hope, still time to slow and even eliminate the threat that is posed to our environment, without having to give up or alter our technology-based lifestyles.
The solution to these problems lies in solar power, the reliable and green energy alternative that doesn’t require a shrinking natural resource, and is readily available in abundance for our use all over the world, and without any detriments or negative effects on the environment. Solar power is the way of the future, and Verengo Solar has established itself as the company of the future, and is already responsible for having empowered thousands of families and homes to make the switch to solar, shrinking their carbon footprint, and enjoying the benefits of clean, affordable energy.

There is an old saying that says that a cook is only as good as his or her knives. The reason for this saying is, of course, is that among all the various tools and implements that a cook may need while in the kitchen, a knife, or a set of various knives, will always be the tool that you will rely on the most. Whether you are cooking a chicken dinner with all of the fixings, or you are making a great breakfast of omelets and hash browns, or you simply want to make you and your family a great fresh roast beef sandwich, you are going to need a high quality knife to let you do the job right and to do it safely. The truth of the matter is that many, if not most, of the injuries that occur in the kitchen occur when someone is using the wrong knife for the job or using a dull or low quality of knife that does not cut in the manner that it is supposed to. A sharp, well working knife is thus one of your best allies for keeping safe in the kitchen while whipping up some delicious meal.

A Narrow, three-foot-long tube of rigid foam may be one of golf’s most versatile and unsung training aids. Standing on it improves balance, while lying on it helps your posture and core stability. Plus, it’s like a personal massage therapist, restoring elasticity to inflamed muscles to increase range of motion and power. Here are four golf-specific exercises you can do with the roller :
GOLF BENEFIT: Improves balance and pro-prioception (an awareness of where your body is in space), helping you swing the club faster and with greater control.
HOW TO DO IT: Stand barefoot on the roller, balancing for up to 30 seconds. When you can do this without falling, try a squat or standing on one leg. (Put both hands on a wall when starting out until balance improves.) Read the rest of this entry »
