Alisha commented on Different types of Renewable Energy

Hello Samantha. Utilizing the pros and cons of these 5 renewable energy sources will be critical. The fun of this challenge will come in delving into what proves to be appropriate in individual communities as well as the different climate regions.

For example: I live in north eastern Ohio. Because of our proximity to Lake Erie, it is very cloudy and rainy here. Solar energy might not be the wisest choice in comparison to wind power. We're also near a lot of farmland so, the utilization of Biomass could be effective as well.

Can you think of other areas that would benefit from certain types of renewable energy over others?

Alisha commented on Start your career, no matter where you're starting from

Hi Geordie, I just signed up for http://theThings.biz! This seems to be a great resource for those lacking conventional skills. It seems like it will be great for the youth, but as has application to GenX and older. For example: my mother worked in food service all her life, but has spent the last 20 years as a homemaker. http://TheThings.biz could really bridge a gap and level the playing field no matter the age. Great idea.
