  • London's 2008 Low E Zone

    Environment, Environmental Design


    Driving into London over the weekend, I spotted a billboard screaming "Low E Zone, February 2008". Somewhat bewildered by the statement, I did some research, and I cannot believe how uninformed the UK is about this initiative.

    Transport for London explain: The Low Emission Zone (LEZ) will start on 4 February 2008 and will apply 24 hours a day, every day of the year. It will affect diesel-engined lorries over 12 tonnes in weight.

    The London Low Emission Zone (LEZ) is a scheme to reduce the pollution emissions of diesel powered motor vehicles in the Greater London area, but private cars will not be covered. Vehicles will be defined by their emissions and those that exceed pre determined levels will be charged to enter the designated area. The zone is expected to start operation on February 4, 2008, with an increasingly stricter regime up to 2012 when it will be fully operational.

    The LEZ will be clearly identifiable by:

    • Signs at the boundary informing drivers they are entering the zone
    • Signs on roads outside the zone giving advance warning to drivers that they are approaching the LEZ
    • Signs approximately every 5km within the zone to let drivers know they are within the LEZ

  • I am reminded of the movie, Ground Hog Day as I read or listen to news that isn't 'New" and so called "Alerts" that have the same *old *information, said over and over, for days, weeks and months.This Design 21 group has given me some hope and enthusiasm to keep creating art and to see what influence design has during this time of violent world conflict. I am pleased to see so many bright lights (brighter than led lights). I am inspired.

    LIGHT to all

  • The Mechanism and Importance of Acoustic Communication, used by Anurans During Breeding

    A Discussion of Genetic, Morphological and Behavioural Changes Observed in Domesticated Animals, Namely Livestock, and their Affect on Fitness

  • Pi5send1_132_

    What does being considerate of a purpose that would serve the highest good for all concerned, mean to the people who decide to inhilate huge groups of human beings? Why are so many of us enduring the obvious inhumane treatment of our fellows. I've heard statements like, "Africa is so far away" or "I had no idea about the building of an oil pipeline in Darfur." Someone I know just returned from Darfur and said the situation is getting much worse for any of the Charity groups to assist in bringing aid to refugees.

    Genocide is not the answer.

    My design for creating inner and outer peace is to ask for only that that is for the highest good of all concerned be brought forward. A good way for creative people to live life!

    My prayer is to endure until the end.

    Peace be still

  • The Greener Electronics Guide

    Environment, Audio/Visual Design


    Guardian blogger Kevin Anderson's article How green are your gadgets? took me over to the latest Greenpeace report Nintendo, Microsoft and Philips flunk toxic test, based on their Greener Electronics Guide (pictured).

    "The Greener Electronics Guide is our way of getting the electronics industry to face up to the problem of e-waste. We want manufacturers to get rid of harmful chemicals in their products. We want to see an end to the stories of unprotected child labourers scavenging mountains of cast-off gadgets created by society's gizmo-loving ways. The Guide ranks companies according to their policies and practices on toxic chemicals and takeback. Along with mobile phone and personal computer companies, we've now added the biggest makers of TVs and games consoles. Old TVs are a large part of e-waste and the games console market is one of the fastest growing in consumer electronics." - Greenpeace.

    An inspiring film made by writer/director David Wall, the story centers around Catholic priests Father Jonathan Keene and Father Simeon Joyce in a small Cape Cod town. It's been described a mix of "Waking Ned Devine" meets "Amelie".

    There is a subtle pro-life message in the film.

    To view the trailer:
