Electric Vehicle Recharging Stations Investment Opportunities

  Venture Capital companies and Investor Owned Utilities (IOU) invest in electric-vehicle charging infrastructure. Some stations include covered solar panel charging stations. Cities across America are implementing electric vehicle (EV) charging station in downtown areas and suburbs fostering support for electric cars. This green energy momentum is very visible. Will this market ever complete with gas stations? Lawmakers in Washington passed a bill to allow electric power utilities and IOU's to invest in the electric-vehicle charging sector. These investments receive the usual rate of return approved by the PUC. Regulators in many states not prohibited investor-owned utilities from selling electricity at retail charging stations. Can anyone envision pulling into a Shell or BP Station to find electric vehicle charging stations situated near the air compressors? When will the changes in the automobile industry be reflected in the gas station industry? Electric cars travel 75 to 179 m

Smart Stadia in Football

  Many stadia managers and clubs are investigating smart technologies such as multi-application smartcards, cashless payment, near field communications (NFC), and short message service (SMS) to provide a better customer experience, generate additional revenue and deliver cost efficiencies. The stadia sector can use any combination of smart technologies to provide a more enjoyable experience for customers, including easy access to the event, convenient ticket purchase, shorter queues within the stadium - which will also provide opportunities to generate additional revenue for the club.

Some stadia have a

Not All Insects Are Pests In Organic Food Farming

 A natural phenomenon that is happening all the time in the nature is the law of food chain; every organism needs to obtain energy in order to live. For non-primary producers like human being, we are not able to make our own food from sunlight; therefore we need to consume another organism to obtain the necessary energy and one of the most traditional methods I would like to discuss here is growing of plant/crop for consuming. However, as the farmers start to grow plant/crop, another group of organisms (known as pests to human being) are drawn to the crop in order for them to survive too. While they are eating up those crops, they have indirectly reduced the quantity and profit margins for the farmers. In order to protect commercial interest, conventional farmers start to use chemical pesticides to kill the "pest" in order to protect those foods but this could also lead to the potential harm on consumer's health when we eat those foods with pesticides sustaining on the pl
