Second Life

Is a virtual world developed by Linden Lab that launched on June 23, 2003, and is accessible via the Internet. A free client program called the Second Life Viewer enables its users, called Residents, to interact with each other through avatars. Residents can explore, meet other residents, socialize, participate in individual and group activities, and create and trade virtual property and services with one another, or travel throughout the world, which residents refer to as the grid. Second Life is for people aged 18 and over, while Teen Second Life is for people aged 13 to 17.

This is my avatar her name is Lilu Dartmouth and she´s son cute, I'm new in this virtual world so for the moment i had only tow friends mi teacher and another guy who i don't know very well i hope meet more friends

If you want to be my friend my name is Lilu Dartmouth... Add me =)

Green Engineering Final Project: Eco-Cars

Toyota has long been aware of the relationship between vehicle exhaust emissions and carbon dioxide and global warming and urban air pollution. In response, Toyota launched the revolutionary Toyota D-CAT (Diesel Clean Advanced Technologies) concept, which takes emission levels well below Euro IV standards for diesel engines.
The Eco carToyota is proud to have pioneered hybrid (petrol/electric) technology to produce the world’s first mass produced eco-vehicle – the Toyota Prius. The Prius offers Toyota’s innovative Hybrid Synergy Drive, which seamlessly integrates all aspects of the Toyota Hybrid System, from the optimum mix of electric motor and petrol engine to electricity regeneration through the braking system.
Hybrid Synergy Drive enables a vehicle to run, from an emissions point of view, under the most efficient mode, petrol and/or electric. Its greatest benefit for the environment is the generation of up to 89% fewer tailpipe pollutants than conventional internal combustion engines, and 2.5 times the average fuel efficiency of conventional vehicles. Toyota plans to introduce Hybrid Synergy Drive into more of its vehicle products.

The climate change in our wordl

The climate change is a change in the statistical distribution of weather over periods of time that range from decades to millions of years. is the long-term average of a region's weather events lumped together.

However, during the Industrial Revolution, we began altering our climate and environment through agricultural and industrial practices, when you watch TV, use the air aconditioner, turn on a light, ride in a car you are helping to sen greenhouse gas into the air

It may seem hard to believe that people can actually change the Earth’s climate but you can help with the climate change.

Climate change is a big problem but there are many things we can do to make a difference-

-Many people use less energy by carpooling

-You can read, learning about about the environment is very important

-Save the electricity, turning off lights, the television and the computer when you are through with them

- You can save energy by sometimes taking the bus, riding a bike, or walking

-Plant trees, planting trees is very important because trees absorb carbon dioxide, a greenhouse gas, from the air

-Recycle cans, bottles, plastic bags, and newspapers. When you recycle, you send less trash to the landfill and you help save natural resources, like trees, oil, and elements such as aluminum

Biography of Thomas Alba Edison

Edison, Thomas Alva, 1847–1931, American inventor, b. Milan, Ohio. A genius in the practical application of scientific principles, Edison was one of the greatest and most productive inventors of his time, but his formal schooling was limited to three months in Port Huron, Mich., in 1854. For several years he was a newsboy on the Grand Trunk RR, and it was during this period that he began to suffer from deafness, which was to increase throughout his life. He later worked as a telegraph operator in various cities.
Edison's first inventions were the transmitter and receiver for the automatic telegraph, the quadruplex system of transmitting four simultaneous messages, and an improved stock-ticker system. In 1877 he invented the carbon telephone transmitter for the Western Union Telegraph Company. His phonograph (patented 1878) was notable as the first successful instrument of its kind.
In 1879, Edison created the first commercially practical incandescent lamp (with a carbon filament). For use with it he developed a complete electrical distribution system for light and power, including generators, motors, light sockets with the Edison base, junction boxes, safety fuses, underground conductors, and other devices. The crowning achievement of his work in this field was the Pearl St. plant (1881–82) in New York City, the first permanent central electric-light power plant in the world. He also built and operated (1880) an experimental electric railroad, and produced a superior storage battery of iron and nickel with an alkaline electrolyte.
Other significant inventions include the Kinetoscope, or peep-show machine. Edison later demonstrated experimentally the synchronization of motion pictures and sound, and talking pictures were based on this work. During World War I he helped to develop the manufacture in the United States of chemicals previously imported; he also served as head of the U.S. navy consulting board concerned with ship defenses against torpedoes and mines. Edison later worked on the production of rubber from American plants, notably goldenrod.
Edison held over 1,300 U.S. and foreign patents, and his workshops at Menlo Park (1876) and West Orange, N.J. (1887), were significant as forerunners of the modern industrial research laboratory in which teams of workers, rather than a lone inventor, systematically investigate a given subject. An Edison memorial tower and light was erected (1938) in Menlo Park, N.J.; Edison's laboratory and other buildings associated with his career are preserved or replicated in Greenfield Village. Some of his various companies were consolidated to form the General Electric Company (GE).
