You may already have some limited experience with something called a DC-to-AC power inverter in your vehicle. The Oculus VR team claims that viewing through the Rift may be a little better than staring at a standard flat screen when it comes to eyestrain, since it makes your eyes focus in the distance, which is their natural resting position. Like the website, the MapQuest app offers multiple route options with the distance, time and traffic conditions of each route, but there are no estimated fuel costs on the app. When your message is complete, click “send” and Email ‘n Walk transfers the text to the iPhone e-mail app. Immediately, the alert circulates to all cell phones, email addresses and fax numbers registered with the site. Earth 911 also maintains a partner site called Recycle Curbside. Earth 911’s work is referred to as cause media, and it is not the only cause media portal out there. Acting locally means putting those decisions to work in your own backyard. Th is post has been generated with the he lp of GSA Conte nt Generator DEMO!
Green means the water quality is acceptable, yellow means the beach is under advisory and red means the beach is closed. As the term implies, it means becoming a steward, or representative, for a product, and taking responsibility for its effect on the environment. E-waste (or electronic waste) is a relatively new term used to describe the old computers and cell phones that sit around collecting dust. Hazardous household waste (HHW) is any leftover household product that contains potentially hazardous ingredients. Instead of sending it to a landfill, we can use that waste in the garden. Use Earth 911 for guidelines on proper disposal of expired or unnecessary medications. Although most of these medications made it into the water supply naturally — through human absorption. In addition to the water quality status reports, Beaches 911 features articles on beach safety, keeping beaches clean and water conservation. Beaches 911 is dedicated to monitoring water quality at U.S.
The late Earth 911 founder, Chris Warner, also helped create the Amber Alert web portal. Here’s how the portal works: When law enforcement personnel identify a child abduction situation, they can authorize an Amber Alert and enter the information into the web portal. The Web site’s recycling section provides information on how to recycle, why to recycle and what to recycle. Earth 911’s product stewardship section lists examples of products manufactured by companies that display good product stewardship. This action is an example of product stewardship. All of these topics tie into the concepts of recycling and product stewardship, which is even more proof of how our daily choices affect the environment on a global level. Clicking through these links will bring even more information and resources. Clicking the RadioShack link brings up a map, operating hours and details on exactly what types of batteries are accepted at this commercial location. A page comes up with a list of nearby recycling centers, as well as a RadioShack that recycles batteries only two miles away. Earth 911 provides ideas for reuse as well as a list of manufacturers who will take back your e-waste.
Earth 911 then provides a list of local recycling centers, along with guidelines, phone numbers and maps. Since it’s not always possible or convenient to get Internet access, Earth 911 also offers a phone number — 1-800-CLEANUP. This hotline provides local recycling information through a touch-tone telephone and offers this content in both English and Spanish. And for those fortunate enough to get a chance to run, be careful what you wish for. Opt-in setups like these usually charge people a small fee whenever they get a message. Animals died (although many insects flourished), oxygen levels dropped, people got hungry, but most significant of all, they fought and formed factions. One reason is that safety is now a selling point in new cars — people actually seek out and buy safer cars. It also makes it easy for people to travel light, or to share data with others. Sometimes the data are presented next to your current vehicle speed as well, since GPS can determine this, too. Its green shopping section provides information about eco-friendly shopping, pointing out the many ways consumer dollars can make a positive environmental impact.
