Rock a Cause!

By admin On February 27th, 2009 in Events, Home, Project GreenFlick /

There will be a benefit concert for the Nebraska Leukemia and Lymphoma Society at Burke High School Auditorium on March 6th @ 7:00 pm. The benefit is sponsored by the Burke Human Service Academy.

Why is this of importance to AimGreenOmaha.com? Well, because in between the featured bands, there will be discussion about Project GreenFlick encouraging the many high schoolers from around the Omaha metro area to submit their videos for the contest where they could win $500.

So, if you’re looking for something fun to do that Friday night, stop by Burke High School and Rock a Cause (don’t forget to mention Project GreenFlick while you’re there!).

Here’s an interesting video (from Forbes.com) on 3Tier, a company from Seattle, who is putting together maps of the world’s renewable energy hotspots and allowing you the site visitor to see if your hometown is one of them.  AimGreenOmaha.com cannot vouch for the validity of these maps, nor does this site endorse 3Tier’s research and opinions.  We just wanted to make you aware because we thought it was an interesting concept.  So, without further ado…

Ecobutton

One look at this product and you’re probably thinking, “Great…just what I need. Another space hog on my already crowded desk.” Well, it may take up (a little) space, but it more than makes up for it by saving you energy and money.

Ecobutton seems to be a little piece of heaven sent from the Green Gods.  Although, we at AimGreenOmaha.com do not endorse products (we’re merely here to inform and entertain), this may be something you may want to check out.

According to this particular Web site, some of its features include:

  • The Ecobutton plugs into any PC’s USB port
  • At the push of a button, the ecobutton automatically puts your computer into a special “ecomode” that saves more energy than normal sleep mode, drawing only the same nominal power as when the computer and monitor are completely shut down
  • Save energy while taking a phone call or break, while doing paperwork or going to lunch or meetings
  • At the touch of any button, the computer instantly returns to where you left off and displays a splash screen showing both money and carbon (CO2) savings
  • Your company logo, message and weblink can be incorporated into the ecobutton splash screen
  • Reduces company energy output and carbon footprint
  • WattBusters
