Vielleicht ein paar hilfreiche Übungen für die nächtlichen Stunden. In der Regel ist es aber deutlich besser, einem versierten Fachmann/Fachfrau die gestalterischen Aufgaben zu überlassen. Allein das Wissen um die Bedienung eines Tools macht noch keinen Fachmann ;-).

Infographic: The Impact Of EV Solar Charging Stations

Infographic:   The Impact Of EV Solar Charging Stations | Inspiration 101 | Scoop.it

There are more benefits to driving a solar charged vehicle than meets the eye.


As technology for these vehicles improve, so will their travel distance and accessibility, as charging stations are becoming more common, with locations at airports, malls, and even college campuses.

Electric vehicles are good for the environment, and recent studies have shown they also play a role in our health. 


This infographic outlines their benefits, compares emissions from the different types of charging stations, maps locations across the US, and summarizes the positive impact electric vehincles have on the economy, environment and our health.

Cam's comment, May 30, 2013 9:34 PM
I disagree Jane. It would be great if everything were able to be accessible to everyone, but that is simply not the reality. We can't homogenise visual art into an accessible form, simply because some people can't see the fine details. That would be as wrong as never considering visually impaired persons, for example.

E-Waste by the Numbers: Infographic

E-Waste by the Numbers: Infographic | Inspiration 101 | Scoop.it

Tech enthusiasts like ourselves tend to spend more on electronics and upgrade more often than the average consumer, but as tech has grown more mainstream than ever, and with product cycles accelerated on the mobile market, electronic waste is becoming an equally expanding issue.

 

There is a lack of consensus as to whether the term (e-waste) should apply to resale, reuse, and refurbishing industries, or only to product that cannot be used for its intended purpose. Informal processing of electronic waste in developing countries may cause serious health and pollution problems, though these countries are also most likely to reuse and repair electronics.

All electronic scrap components may contain contaminants such as lead, cadmium, beryllium, or brominated flame retardants. Even in developed countries recycling and disposal of e-waste may involve significant risk to workers and communities and great care must be taken to avoid unsafe exposure in recycling operations and leaching of material such as heavy metals from landfills and incinerator ashes.


This infographic puts e-waste figures in perspective...
