SoundBridge Closeup

I have a bit of an eclectic collection of electronics. One of my favorites is the Roku SoundBridge. It plays Internet radio stations, like SomaFM’s Groove Salad, through my home theater receiver. I like this model for its industrial design, selection of outputs and the display. I’m also a big fan of the Roku Netflix Player.

After looking at this picture I realize I need to clean my electronics a bit more frequently.

Tips For Traveling With Pets From Honda in Baltimore

Each year millions of drivers hit the open road, traveling to destinations across the country. Riding alongside many of these drivers is their much beloved pet. Traveling with your pet can be a fun experience for everyone, however there are certain safety measures that should be in place to ensure road trips end safely and with everyone in one piece. The folks at Honda in Baltimoreknow how much we love our family pets and offer the following tips for people traveling with their pets.

Identification tags- Before you leave your driveway, Maryland Honda recommends you make sure traveling pets have the proper tags for identification, vaccines and license. There are dozens of ways in which an animal can become lost while traveling. Identification tags can help reunite missing pets with their owners. Proof of vaccination can also thwart potential problems if your pet is involved in a biting incident.

Only drivers behind the wheel- Who hasn’t witnessed an individual driving with their pet on their lap? It is not an uncommon sight, however it is a dangerous one. It doesn’t matter how calm or predictable you think your pet is, they are still an animal. Animals react instinctively making it impossible to know with a certainty how they will behave. Pets riding in the laps of drivers are simply a distraction and potential hazard under certain conditions. For the safety of the pet and other occupants of the vehicle, invest in a pet carrier or pet harness to properly secure your animal.

Restrain your pets- For the safety of pets, family member and strangers, always have your pet properly restrained. Always attach a leash before getting out of the car and wait until all doors are closed before unleashing a pet. Baltimore Honda dealers remind drivers that animals not properly restrained have an increased risk of getting lost, hit by a car or involved in an incident with strangers. The most mild mannered pooch can get aggressive if they feel threatened in a strange environment. By making sure your animal is under your control at all times, you guarantee their safety and the safety of others.

Texas Wind Energy: Separating the Facts from the Hype

Texas Wind Energy: Separating the Facts from the Hype

One of the most exciting forms of renewable energy that shows the most promise is wind energy. Derived from wind turbines, wind energy generates electricity without the need for fossil fuels and the consumption of water, and produces no emissions during the process. This significant environmental benefit makes wind energy one of the most promising and fastest developing forms of renewable energy today.

 

At the forefront of wind energy development is the state of Texas, known for its oil and natural gas production facilities, but now leads the nation in the production of wind energy. The state can generate Texas electricity using wind energy with a capacity that is three times as much as Iowa, the second highest wind energy-producing state, and would rank sixth after the United States, China, Germany, Spain and India if Texas was considered a separate nation.

 

The Renewable Portfolio Standard signed into law in 1999 by then governor George W. Bush set Texas on the road towards renewable energy and a leader in wind energy, producing over 8,200 megawatts of wind-generated Texas electricity. According to ERCOT or the Electric Reliability Council of Texas, wind energy accounted for 6.2 percent of the state’s 2009 Texas electricity production.

 

The Facts and the Hype

 

Texas commitment to renewable sources of energy have generated hype from all levels: claims of the state exceeding all expectations regarding wind energy generation, generation of over 15,000 more jobs, and over billion in investments – the biggest “economic boon to the state” according to President Barack Obama himself.

 

However, actual figures from ERCOT, the state’s grid operator, indicated that only 708 megawatts of this total wind energy capacity is reliable, particularly during the summer where Texas electricity demands are at their peak. To compensate, conventional energy generation is still utilized to sustain the more than 72,648 megawatt demands during the summer months. ERCOT projects that wind energy will eventually have significant impact on the grid by the year 2014, after transmission constraints have all been addressed.

Status and Direction of Wind Energy in Texas

Recent figures have indicated a very promising outlook for the wind energy industry as 12.1 percent of the state’s total Texas electricity production by April of this year. Texas continues to have the largest wind farms and highest wind capacity nationwide, despite the problems and issues the industry faced.

 

Plans of building the largest wind farm in the world was discontinued due to constraints imposed by the lack of transmission lines that will bring Texas electricity from the various wind farms across the state and into the major cities that require this energy. To address this, the state is allocating over billion in investments to lay out a concrete transmission plan.

 

Most of Texas wind power farms are located in West Texas and the Panhandle. Now, there are not enough transmission lines that will bring the generated Texas Electricity from these locations and down to the big metropolitan areas such as Dallas-Fort Worth where consumption is the highest. Once these hurdles are addressed and an efficient means of transmission are in place, the state and surrounding areas will definitely benefit from this viable source of renewable energy.
