That tree ( farm grown and all) will probably have less of an impact on the environment than meat dishes you’re going to eat with your family during winter holidays. Organically grown Christmas tree is still a waste, but if you put things in perspective…if you eat beef, or exotic fruits, that x...

Christmas isn't a part of my culture. I don't celebrate it. I don't put up christmas tree or participate in the consumerism craze, but am I necessarily greener than you? I don't know, because there are other events in my culture , which you don't practice, that can be just as wasteful. So I say enjo...

You guys get into Alias in first year? Hmmm.... I would advice getting away from computers now. I think you need more sketching and drawing practices. Your understanding of perspective needs to be re-enforced. With enough practice, your lines will start to become more fluid, so don't sweat over it n...

If that's so, then why not design a stirring stick that IS the tea bag? A stick that you can refill with new tea leaves so it is reusable.

I don't really know how much better of a job will this do. I am a tea person, and in case you don't know, tea bags in Asia and Europe are much lighter in taste than those in the US. I am comparing Lipton to Lipton. Typically, I can use a tea bag once or twice in Asia, but tea bags in the US are real...

Looks like another Green wash attempt. How does it being "electric" make it clean? Where the hell does it get its electricity, and how is it being stored? The government or some kind of institution need to impose some kind of standard before anyone can claim that their products are clean. Like "EPA ...

I didn't know he was one of the judges for the Sydney Opera House competition. Do you know about the story behind the opera house? The guy who won the competition couldn't figure out how to engineer the structure and the excessive waste of resource got the Aussies really pissed. They then banned the...

Are you just looking for internships? If so I don't really think you need a card yet, especially for interviews because you should have prepared a detailed resume to be given to them.. or that they should already have it. As for the design of the card, I find it amateurish. The colors are kinda of b...

However, the truth is Ferrari has the same kind of computer controlled welding and assembly equipment that is used through-out the industry. Ferrari though, perpetuates the myth that their cars are built by hand. While it's true that hand-made doesn't equal to higher quality, Ferrari goes to the ex...

I see, never knew that.

the spray booth I have access to doesn't seem to have very good climate control. With temperature dropping, it's hard to keep the paint from hardening before it gets to the surface.

I use the red lamps to keep it warm for curing, still not ideal.
