German Hybrids: Have Your Black Forest Cake and Eat It, Too

The Black Forest may contain trees for as far as the eye can see, but heretofore the local people have been leaving them starved for affection. Alas, the tide seems to be turning, and there is evidence that the people of Germany may be catching on to the pastime of tree-hugging.

The Opel Vectra: An Automotive Automaton

The modern plague of laziness has really gotten out of control. Get this: General Motors is getting set to release a car that drives itself. The system, currently in development in Russelsheim, Germany, is called Traffic Assist, and its first intended target is the 2008 Opel Vectra, a new family sedan based on the Epsilon 2 (Opel is GM’s largest European subsidiary).

Coming to America: the 2008 Volvo C30

What is it that makes a person want a Volvo? Sure, there’s the safety factor, as these cars are known for saving lives with their side-impact beams, state-of-the-art seatbelts, and never-optional ABS and traction control. But up until a few years ago these cars were literally square. If you had a family (and graying temples), you felt at home in the boxy Parentmobile.

Blog Post - A Roof that’s Good Enough to Eat

Lisa Markowski, ERS, for Zondits. Image credit: Lisa Markowski. Green roofs – also known as living roofs – are great enough when “all” they do is beautify and insulate buildings and provide clean oxygen. The ultimate benefit, though, comes when they produce food.
