Have you ever heard of bioenergy? Or, have you ever wondered where your garbage goes once you throw it out? For many people — especially Americans — once their trash leaves the house, there is no more thought about where it goes or what happens to it.

New Zealand mosque shooter a white supremacist angry at immigrants

By KRISTEN GELINEAU SYDNEY — The gunman behind at least one of the mosque shootings in New Zealand that left 49 people dead on Friday tried to make a few things clear in the manifesto he left behind: He is a 28-year-old Australian white nationalist who hates immigrants.

When it comes to bedding, I gravitate towards white, every time: it’s timeless, easily cleaned, and effortlessly makes the bed look fresh and crisp. But anyone who’s looked through white paint chips knows there are almost limitless shades and hues, with subtle differences that can set completely different tones. It’s with that in mind that Flaneur, the custom-dyed linens company, launched an all-white collection: “an exploration of bedding colors that go beyond conventional bleached whites to dy...

Pollutionwatch: when smog builds up, cities need to act

Industry and traffic restrictions are some of the emergency plans used to reduce smog impactThe UK’s pollution problems of the last week remind us that when winds stop, air pollution builds up; especially when fog shields the ground from the sun.

In November 1953 still air settled over New York, causing the city’s first documented smog. For the first ti...
