Sustainable Living What should I wear to this interview?

Question by Addie: What should I wear to this interview?
I have an interview next week. It’s to be the newsletter editor of one my college’s clubs. It’s an sustainable living/environmental club.

I honestly can’t figure out what to wear. I have a go-to outfit for normal interviews, but this one seems different. The members of the club are VERY laid-back and hippie-ish. But I don’t want to wear jeans and a T-shirt.

How can I dress professional but at the same time not look out of place?

Help!

Best answer:

Answer by Ivy
Instead of your interview suit, something chic, but a little more business casual might work. How about a nice summer mid-calf length skirt in a subdued print and matching short sleeved sweater or heavy weight t shirt top. If you have wedge heeled or mid heeled summer shoes wear that with it.

Another option, might be a pair of black pants and a crisp white blouse maybe with a surplus wrap, and black open toed pumps.

What do you think? Answer below!

Eco Green Living The best fungus for converting waste office shreddings into soil for green roofing London?

Question by .: The best fungus for converting waste office shreddings into soil for green roofing London?
There are proposals to green London’s hi rise flat roofs. The fungi that convert the paper shreddings which are sent to landfill would make an ideal lightweight substrate for converting to soil. What is the best variety?

Best answer:

Answer by belladonna deadlynightshade
Permaculture Answer:

I am sorry I cannot help you with a specific species of fungus.

London is subject to the problem of URBAN HEAT ISLAND EFFECT. (Albedo Effect) which is normally used by Permaculturists as a benefit to the microclimate. I do like the idea of using land fill materials which is a major problem particularly in large cities.

Otherwise soils are going to have to be trans-located from other sites. The energy required to move bulky materials such as soil (energy expensive) or peat based materials (is too high in terms of the environmental costs).

As you too are into fungus there is some amazing New Research paving the way for novel techniques in myco-remediation (using fungus). This then leads onto the use of bacteria which is a natural succession from the fungal myceliated medium, thus allowing the use of human manure (after normal sewage bed treatment).

Human manure which is also a problem resource can then be disposed of by adding to the landfill materials (office shreddings) to put on the roofs as you describe.

We also require a mineral base in a soil. For its long term sustainability this could be supplied by the use of crushed recycled pre-stressed concrete, another reversal of a negative into a positive output in the ever expanding city scape.

The only unknown is what would happen to the CO2 produced by these processes. Which under normal circumstances would be reabsorbed by the surrounding trees and vegetation.

This Research is amazing.

Neutralizing petroleum based hydrocarbons using Mushroom Mycelium. Mushroom mycelium absorbs diesel and denatures it. Well designed for breaking a whole suite of hydro carbon based contaminates. Excellent results on pcbs pcps dioxins, most pesticides most herbicides, petroleum based fuels, diesel, gasoline etc. Once this is re-mediated, phyto-remediation can take place (succession) so that insects and other animals can move in afterwards; you have a holistic eco system.

The chemical make up of oil is very similar to that of wood. The fungus has evolved special enzymes in order to break down cellulose and lignin which is the dark brown stuff in wood. The Mycelium can then be ‘trained’ to digest similar compounds ie pcbs pcps dioxins, most pesticides most herbicides, petroleum based fuels, diesel, gasoline etc. This is done by exposing the Mycelium to small amounts of the toxic material so they then evolve new enzymes in order to digest these materials.

Another amazing bit of research:

Breakthrough research pre-sporalating living mycelium did the opposite of the sporalating mycellium. Insects can be selectively attracted to a locus. A new patent is active against all social insects with a queen up to 200,000 species this will totally revamp pesticide industry.

Question by Samantha: How to choose what colors to paint the wall of my house?
I am in the process of choosing the wall colors for my new home. I have choose a light green for the living room, a light blue for the master bedroom and a coral/peach color for the second bedroom but I started to think that maybe all those colors are not such a good idea. Is it ok to have all those different color walls or should they all be similar? Is there some kind of guide to painting your house that people follow?

Question by Lady: What are best places in Texas to live, and why do you think so? What are the people like there?
Please try to give specific zip codes-thanks! I don’t need to be near schools and prefer mid or small communities for example Dallas seems small but heavily populated and constantly growning- the rat race is not for me and I prefer scenic areas without public bus lines!
With Texas being the largest state and only 3 answers WoW it can’t be that great!

I would say Austin Texas 73301. It is a college town but has great schools. You can get a good size home for a nice price, and the poeple are great. They have plenty to do and some many nice places to eat. You can walk along the river or catch a Texas football game.

Renewable Energy How much does it usually cost to convert to renewable energy in the Philippines?

Question by Elgy: How much does it usually cost to convert to renewable energy in the Philippines?
Are there local manufacturers in the Philippines where small homeowners can buy or get service in installing equipments for solar panelling and the likes? maybe even bio-source energy?

If renewable energy is already available, is there also a program for selling (i’m taking small scale) excess energy back to the energy grid in the Philippines?

Best answer:

Answer by fakebobjones
Yup, Solar Electric Company Inc. www.solarelectric.com.ph. This is for personal use–I do not know about selling back excess energy. Renewable energy is not very popular/common yet, I would assume namely due to the initial layout for the panels, etc.

There is also a Solarhart distributor here but I misplaced the business card.

Green Living Solutions I have a weedy yard with bare spots. How can I make it green and grassy?

Question by Jeff: I have a weedy yard with bare spots. How can I make it green and grassy?
My wife says we should just call a landscaper, but I want to do it myself. How can I tell her this is possible?

My problem is mainly in the front yard. I’ve got lots of weeds. In some parts, there’s no discernible grass at all. Just weeds. In other areas, the soil is compacted and no grass grows.

In the back, the grass is a little better, but there’s still lots of weeds (clover, dandilion and patches of thick-bladed grass bunches).

What can I do to improve the condition of the yard? My friend says to use Scott’s Weed and Feed, but will that really solve my problem? For the bare patches, should I buy seed or could sod be a better solution?

I’m willing to pound the yard with a hoe until all the weeds are gone, if that’s what it will take. What’s your idea?

Best answer:

Answer by Beau H
The first thing you should do, is use Roundup on the weeds in the lawn, wait for 4-5 days, this will allow the roundup to work its way into the roots, completely killing the plant. Then use your hoe to cut off the tops (above ground) parts of the weeds, and pick them up and put them in a trash bag so they cannot reseed themselves.
You will also need to loosen the soil before you plant sod or seed, you can use a rototiller or just use a shovel to break up the ground.
This is also the time to mix in a fertalizer (Compost, Manure or a lawn starter fertalizer) this is also the time to make sure the ground is flat.
At this point you can now plant sod or seed, the only difference between the two is , the sod is a little more expensive, but you get instant green lawn. With seed it can take about a month to give you a somewhat filled in lawn.

Green Living Dallas Q&A: Where can I purchase a preserved green maple leaf online?

Question by S3V3R3D: Where can I purchase a preserved green maple leaf online?
It’s a long & weird story why, but I need to find a preserved green maple leaf. I live in Utah, and these can’t be found here this time of year. I’m unsure whether or not these can still be found at other locations, but, any help would be greatly appreciated. Does anyone know where I can buy one of these online, or, would anyone be willing to sell one to me? It’d be an easy way to make a little extra money. Thanks in advance!
The leaf needs to be real and non-artificial.

Best answer:

Answer by mike1942f
The obvious problem is that for almost all of the US, maple trees have shed their leaves. I was just picking up some nice yellow and gold ones in my front yard here in Dallas. Do you need natural and real or the shape and color only which can be done in green at craft store artificial flower counters.

It seems most American’s don’t really want to cut back on their lifestyle to cut energy usage but may be open to using more efficient technology and or sustainable energies.

America expends an exponential amount more of energy than any other nation in the world industrial or developing. It seems America’s problem is not just the technology it choses to use but more so a moral dilemma.

I know the western US better because I’m from Alaska, but I’ve been to Palm Springs, Lake Havasu, Vegas, Cancun and Daytona Beach … I’m 26 so I’ve had a little time to do my share of partying haha. I liked Cancun the best of all those places, but I had a good time at all of them.

Why Go Green Q&A: What do the red and green lights mean on the side of a Fahrenheit straightener?

Question by Liz: What do the red and green lights mean on the side of a Fahrenheit straightener?
There are red and green lights in the side of my straightener. Sometimes the green light goes off, but when I straighten my hair the red light is always on? What does this mean?

Best answer:

Answer by cassandra a
Happens on mine too, the red means it’s on and “in use”. If you leave it alone and don’t move it, it turns to a green light. I believe for safety issues, so as to not heat up too much. And when the green light turns off, I think it’s like a automatic turn off when your not using it.

Green Living Blogs Q&A: How do I discourage pesky rodents and deer from my flowers?

Question by autisticA: How do I discourage pesky rodents and deer from my flowers?
I just discovered that my waxwing Begonia blossoms have been eaten. I’ve spent over $ 100 replacing Impatiens and other annuals. I use “Liquid Fence” which is a spray containing coyote urine, but even that doesn’t help. I live in the Midwest. Any suggestions?
Hondu, who the hell are you really, John McCain? When I asked this question, I didn’t see any previously asked questions on this topic. Go spoil someone else’s day a**hole.

Best answer:

Answer by Number6
I feel your pain. I too have a herd of deer in my backyard. Deer eat everything in their paths. The only thing to do is put up temporary fencing. Deer are creatures of habit. They take the same route as long as they can. If you can discourage them from eating your begonia by fencing it in, they might take a different route. Good luck.
P.S. Getting a dog helped a little.

Question by Θεά Άρτεμις: How to keep pond water clear without a filter?
I have a filter but with a recent power outage, I was not happy with my pond’s coloring–my fish survived, but the pond is directly under the sun and turned a lovely shade of green. In the event that it happens again, I want to be prepared. What are some methods to keep pond water clear without a filter? Are there any plants you’d recommend?
The filter is not going anywhere; I’m looking for a backup plan in case I lose power again.

Green Living Forums Q&A: Is Green Day coming to Tampa on August 3rd?

Question by Max: Is Green Day coming to Tampa on August 3rd?
Yesterday I was on the Green Day website looking at tour dates and my jaw hit the floor when I found out they were going to be in Tampa on August 3rd. I looked on the website today and it says something different: that they’re not going to be anywhere on August 3rd, but in Miami on August 4th. I looked on a bunch of different websites, including that of the venue they’re playing at, and they all say they ARE going to be here on August 3rd. I need accurate answers! Please help!

Green Living Project What is your opinion on GREEN market research technology projects?

Question by ebellgcr: What is your opinion on GREEN market research technology projects?
In your opinion, what is your take on market research being done in the technology around GREEN and sustainability?

How would you deploy this survey?

Best answer:

Answer by Jeff
Seeing as my answer is from my climate controlled living room, on my electric PC, it would be wrong for me to complain about global warming caused by the increased use of fossil fuel to power my heat and living room. Flying certain people to the poles of the earth to “report” on global warming is 1,000,000 times more of a waste of our resources and hypocritical. The best way to save our planet is to leave the buffoons at the poles, and make sure Al Gore is there with them! Stupid is as stupid does!

Sustainable What is a more sustainable substitute for black tiger shrimp?

Question by dpk55: What is a more sustainable substitute for black tiger shrimp?
I would like to replace the black tiger shrimp on our wedding menu with a more sustainable shrimp, but I would prefer another type of shrimp that is as close as possible to the tiger shrimp in size and texture.

Best answer:

Answer by Peter
The main thing to look for is country of origin. If you can get it from Mexico it will be much more sustainable than if it came from Asia. It is very hard to get very large shrimp that are not farmed raised. Wild caught shrimp has more flavor if you can find it. Mexican shrimp does not destroy as much mangroves or coral. I avoid shrimp from Thailand myself.
