The generosity of donors and guests at Stella by Starlight has a direct impact on hundreds of young artists including the New York City teenagers who are served by the Stella Adler Outreach Division.

Knowing you can print almost anything, not just marks on paper, opens up unlimited opportunities for us to manufacture toys, household appliances and tools in our living rooms.

LOW-TECH MAGAZINE: How Sustainable is PV Solar Power?

LOW-TECH MAGAZINE: How Sustainable is PV Solar Power? | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it
Solar photovoltaic (PV) systems generate "free" electricity from sunlight, but manufacturing them is an energy-intensive process. It's generally assumed that it only takes a few years before solar panels have generated as much energy as it took to make them, resulting in very low greenhouse gas emissions compared to conventional grid electricity. However, the studies upon which this assumption is based are written by a handful of researchers who arguably have a positive bias towards solar PV. A more critical analysis shows that the cumulative energy and CO2 balance...

Interviewed: The Leaders of Kenya's College for Cooperatives

Interviewed: The Leaders of Kenya's College for Cooperatives | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it
Established in 1952, The Co-operative University College of Kenya trains students to lead the country's many cooperatives. (Nathan Schneider) The Co-operative University College of Kenya (CUCK), on the outskirts of Nairobi, looks like any other college. Students walk along its manicured paths and drab hallways with their books and phones—alone, absorbed in thought, or in groups, gabbing with each other.
