Lead In Lipstick and Other Unhealthy Cosmetics, check the labels and buy only the healthy cosmetics like lead free lipstick! Moral of the story is don't make yourself sick trying to make yourself look better!

Lead in lipstick and other unhealthy cosmetics, and understand that cosmetics are intended to enhance your appearance, but there are some dangerous chemicals that may be lurking in your make-up which may over the course of time be detrimental to your appearance! Here are some of the more common toxic chemicals and the cosmetics where they can be found.

1. Lead

Once thought to be an urban legend, a recent study confirmed the presence of lead in some lipsticks. However, the amount of lead present is very small – FDA regulations restrict the amount of lead in a particular red dye, for instance, to twenty parts per million. Nonetheless, the lead is present, and cumulative effects from the daily use of lipstick should not be ruled out. The health risks of lead exposure are fairly well known, and include neurological and reproductive disorders. You should search for a lead free lipstick which can eliminate this unhealthy item from your cosmetics ingredients. Lead free lipstick can be found at most retail stores that carry a good selection of cosmetics, with some major brands in the mix like Revlon, Este Lauder, The Body Shop, Wet N Wild, and Avon.

Developments in the Renewable Energy Sector

This past few years saw rising interest expressed for renewable energy—the kind of energy that is abundant and free, being taken from natural resources like sunlight, water, rain, geothermal heat, wind, and tides. Because of concern over dwindling fuel supply and the increasing problem of global warming, numerous governments and organizations from all over the world are now looking for viable energy source options using these natural resources.

Countries like Denmark and Spain have already successfully harnessed wind power to supply a portion of their electric power. In London, a vast wind farm expected to become the largest in the world has already begun construction, a physical manifestation of the country’s efforts towards encouraging the renewable energy sector. Elsewhere in the United States are several wind farms established for power generation, such as those in Pampa, Texas and in Fond du Lac County in Wisconsin. In Wyoming, there is the Happy Jack Windpower Facility that already began its commercial operations in September 2008.

Another renewable energy source is also being used to generate power and for other practical purposes as well—solar power. In states filled with sunshine the whole year through, such as California and Nevada, solar thermal power plants are being constructed with the aim of supplying power to a large percentage of households. However, the largest photovoltaic plant in the world is found in Germany and is expected to become operational in 2009. Several communities in the United States are also implementing plans of purchasing and installing their own photovoltaic farms to supply renewable energy to its households.

Many places all over the world are also harnessing geothermal energy for power supply. In the United States, the latest projects of this kind have been initiated in Beaver County, Utah and in New Mexico. The former has a geothermal power plant called Thermo while the latter has just begun construction on the Lightning Dock Geothermal Power Plant.

Wave power is also being tapped as potential source of renewable source, with the opening of a large wave farm in Portugal in September 2008. This first of its kind facility is expected to generate more than 2 MW of electricity. In Oahu, Hawaii, the US Navy has funded and taken active participation in the development of a wave energy technology expected to generate about 1 MW of electricity.

And elsewhere in the world, car manufacturers, legislators, and private individuals have taken interest and commitment to reduce carbon dioxide emissions through the use of more energy efficient automobiles. Most of these vehicles are also capable of using the biofuel ethanol, which is certainly affordable and produces no pollutants into the atmosphere.

With most of the countries in the world and environmental organizations pushing for the use of renewable energy resources and for the development of supporting technologies, there is an expected trend of consumer preference toward renewable energy supply. Because of these, it is also expected that the renewable energy sector will continue to increase and expand with more investments from capitalists all over world. With these developments, the goals of reducing the world’s dependence of fossil fuels and enjoying cleaner environment are slowly reaching realization.

Where can I buy biodegradable trash garbage bags that won’t fall apart?

I would like to start using biodegradable trash bags. I can’t seem to find them locally. Some people say that those types of bags will fall apart if you put wet trash into them. Unfortunately, I don’t have anywhere to compost, so all the wet food garbage needs something that won’t fall apart when wet. Does anyone know a good brand and where to buy it?

Typhoon Megi Tracking For Southern China and Hong Kong

As Typhoon Megi moved off the west coast of Luzon in the Philippines early Tuesday morning, Southern China and Hong Kong are bracing and preparing for it’s expected arrival. China’s state run Xinhua news agency reported that the southern province of Guangdong appeared to be at highest risk from Megi, which could result in waves of 7 meters high, or 21 feet. Authorities there have ordered all the fishing boats to return to safe harbor before Tuesday at midnight, and reservoirs and hydro-stations to be on alert. Vietnam is also bracing as the size of the storm is large, and has a wide swath of potential destruction.

The storm is now in the South China Sea and is moving west-northwest at 11km per hour with wind speeds of 185kph at 2 PM local time, October 19th, 2010 and reached the 15th grade, one grade up from October 17th. As a mega storm, the area Megi covers and poses a threat is widespread, with the danger area of the storm with strong winds being 200km in diameter. Read more…

eCycling: EPA eCycling Program - A Brief Explanation, don't let this happen to your old electronics!

eCycling: EPA eCycling Program – A Brief Explanation, and fyi ECycling refers to the recycling of electronic products, which are more commonplace in American homes, as well as around the world. The Environmental Protection Agency, or EPA for short has instigated a program to help and encourage the recycling of electronics.

To get the program to the regional and community levels, the EPA headed up “Plug-In to eCycling Partners.” These partners support electronics recycling programs in individual communities. They offer local governments, retailers, and manufacturers opportunities to reuse and recycle their products. Those who make and sell electronics then sponsor or instigate programs and opportunities for consumers to recycle their used electronic products. Read more…

A new solar paint coined sun-believable could power homes in the not too distant future according to scientists from Notre Dame’s Center for Nano Science and Technology (NDnano). Imagine this, the next time that you paint your house, the coat of paint you put on the outside of your home generates electricity from light, which takes that electricity and allows it to power the appliances and equipment on the inside of your home!

A group of researchers at the University of Notre Dame have made a major advance toward this vision by creating an inexpensive “solar paint” that uses semiconducting nanoparticles to produce energy from the light energy of the sun.

“We want to do something trans-formative, to move beyond current silicon-based solar technology,” says Prashant Kamat, John A. Zahm Professor of Science in Chemistry and Biochemistry and an investigator in Notre Dame’s Center for Nano Science and Technology (NDnano), who leads the research. Read more…

List of Drinking Water Contaminants & Their Maximum Contaminant Level: Disinfection Byproducts

Our chart for the drinking water contaminants associated with disinfection byproducts follows below.

These byproducts are formed when disinfectants used in water treatment plants react with bromide and/or natural organic matter (i.e., decaying vegetation) present in the source water. Different disinfectants produce different types or amounts of byproducts. Byproducts from the disinfection process for which regulations have been established have been identified in drinking water, including trihalomethanes, haloacetic acids, bromate, and chlorite.
