Ok this is cool. A man-made off-grid floating island.

Who says you need land to build a house? This Canadian couple doesn't think so. They are living self-sufficiently on their own floating island near Tofino, British Columbia. The island consists of twelve interconnected platforms that support their home, greenhouse, lighthouse, and a dance studio. They have dubbed it "Freedom Cove," and call it a "floating food garden." The two artists support themselves by selling their artworks in local shops and beyond, and supplement their income with veggies and fruit harvested throughout the year from their own garden, in addition to fishing.

They generate their own electricity with the use of photovoltaics, and collect rainwater and water from a nearby waterfall for drinking.

Photovoltaic (PV) devices generate electricity directly from sunlight via an electronic process that occurs naturally in certain types of material, called semiconductors. Electrons in these materials are freed by solar energy and can be induced to travel through an electrical circuit, powering electrical devices or sending electricity to the grid.

Pretty neat, isn't it? Are you ready to become a little more self-sufficient? You can start by going solar! If you are in the #Texas area, we want to talk to you! Visit our website to get started: http://gplus.ly/2a0YM2G

Dubbed "Freedom Cove," this remarkable home is a decades-long labor of love built in one of inlets in British Columbia.

wonder when the internet devices gets as cheap as pencils and waters in 10 years time.

Will the children of the next gen be taught how to write with pencils and paper and calculate with their minds?

Most of people don't use any of those anymore even though they were taught to use it in their younger days.

Our point of view is based on the narratives or ideologies or belief we have. To each of us it's our personal projections super imposed onto the real reality. Which reflects our projections.

In case y'all didn't know you can use your Nexus device or other devices as a Kodi Media Streamer without having to cast your entire screen. Check my video out using the Nexus 5X, Kodi, & LocalCast app. https://youtu.be/ywvA2LQTTko It's really easy.

Solar Power is 'Contagious' http://gplus.ly/28KZ4bD

Yep, you heard us correctly. Rooftop solar is expanding rapidly in the United States — by some estimates, a new system goes up every four minutes. There are plenty of reasons for that, from falling prices to generous federal subsidies to innovative leasing schemes.

But there's another, little-discussed factor here: Studies have found that if you install solar photovoltaic panels on your roof, that increases the odds that your neighbors will install their own panels.

A 2014 paper (http://gplus.ly/1Nkjj31) in the Journal of Economic Geography looked at the growth of residential solar power across Connecticut. Rooftop solar took hold in a few initial spots back in 2005 when the state first started offering solar subsidies. Rooftop systems then spread out from those clusters over time in a "wave-like centrifugal pattern".

The researchers, Marcello Graziano of the University of Connecticut and Kenneth Gillingham of Yale, tried to figure out why solar power would expand in this way. Maybe solar power was just concentrating in large population centers? Nope: In fact, solar power was growing more rapidly in small and medium population areas. Nor was solar power simply proliferating in the rich parts of the state; households of all income levels were adopting solar power.

After more careful examination, the researchers concluded that the evidence points to something called "neighbor effects." Specifically, adding one rooftop system on a block increased the average number of installations within a half-mile radius by 0.44. This built on previous research finding similar effects in California.

Solar contagion makes some intuitive sense: Most people still don't know very much about residential solar power, how the subsidies work, or whether it makes financial sense. The technology is still new. But if they see that their neighbor is putting up panels, suddenly the possibility becomes more concrete. You can talk to the neighbors, find out more, think about whether it makes sense for you.
