Tip Hero shared some ways to keep home extension cords neat and organized. Builders and Contractors

Luckily, you can avoid this tangled mess by simply using this effective rolling method. It’s called the over & under method, and we can tell it’s going to save us a whole lot of time and make for a lot less struggling.”

Renewable Energy has been abuzz lately as more and more nations are aiming towards using as much of it as possible. Builders and Contractors   

Climate Progress for instance shared in one of its posts that Hawaii may soon just get power only from renewable energy sources.

Hawaii’s dramatic shift to renewable energy over the past few years has been largely driven by the island state’s high electricity prices. Hawaii gets most of its electricity from oil-fired power plants, and all the oil is imported. Electricity there can cost three times as much as the national average.”

here are no technological miracles involved, nuclear power is entirely absent from the mix, and no new hydroelectric power has been added for more than two decades. Instead, he says, the key to success is rather dull but encouragingly replicable: clear decision-making, a supportive regulatory environment and a strong partnership between the public and private sector.”

Awesome door handles. (Photo Credits)

There is a lot about door handles that can amaze just about anyone. It may be a usual fixture in a home or commercial establishment, but when it is not as common, or ordinary, everyone pays attention to it.

Just like these door handles featured over at the website Lushome.

“Door handles, recycling metal items, wooden pieces, miniature figurines and antique handles, are perfect for artistic door designs and personalizing door decoration. Small details can change the ambiance of your house exterior and doors, reflecting your character and lifestyle.”

Check out the unique door handles here.

Germ-Free

Door handles, however unique they are, can still harbor germs.

Well, except for this one featured over at Inhabitat.

“Soon you may be able to toss your hand sanitizer. Two teens from Hong Kong have created a new door handle that wipes out 99.8 percent of all germs on contact, potentially revolutionizing the hygiene industry. Realizing the extent to which bacteria spreads on public door handles, shopping carts and other objects touched by hundreds if not thousands of people each day, 17-year-old Sun Ming (Simon) Wong and 18-year-old King Pong (Michael) Li sought a material that could eliminate bacteria. Turns out titanium oxide does the trick, but they had to come up with an innovative way to activate it.”

Take a look at this innovative door handle here.

You may also want to read:

The same door handle has also been featured over at Science Alert. “Because door handles aren’t normally bathed in UV light, Wong and Li figured out a way for every bit of their bacteria-fighting handle to get some UV rays: they lit it from inside. The handle itself is a cylinder of clear glass, with a strong light-emitting diode (LED) on one end that shines UV light through the length of the handle. Lit up with UV light, the titanium dioxide can go to work killing bacteria.”

The prospect of making a solar structure by oneself may be intimidating to some, but for some individuals, it is a project that is worth every effort.  American Lighting Association   

IFL Science for instance featured a fund raising project about a solar-powered spacecraft.

“LightSail is a ‘citizen-funded project’ by The Planetary Society, which Nye leads as their CEO. The project will use the sun’s energy to propel itself into Earth’s orbit. While light particles, or photons, don’t have any mass, they do have momentum. The project will use tiny CubeSats, a type of satellite used in space research, to carry large reflective sails and use the momentum from photons to accelerate. The spacecraft can accelerate continuously and increase in speed over time.”

Read about the project here.

Make your own cabin

For some with simpler goals, a solar powered cabin could be the project of choice, as shared by the website, Diet of Life. Master Electrician 

“Solar energy is one of the world’s best and largest natural resources. Solar power is said to be green since, in contrast to other sources of energy, it does not emit any pollutant into the atmosphere, whether it is produced or consumed. Nowadays, more and more people are switching to solar power not only because it is a green source of energy, but also because it is becoming less expensive and more efficient than it used to be originally. Thanks to technological developments we are now able to convert solar energy into heating or electricity.”
