PressReader App Review

I like to read the newspaper, but I seldom buy newspapers because of all the waste that accumulates.  I've taken to reading the majority of my news online, but it doesn't offer the same experience that reading a traditional newspaper does.  

I recently downloaded PressReader onto my iPad and I'm loving it.  It is the best newspaper app I've used to date.  It really looks like a newspaper and it feels like I'm reading a newspaper - without the garbage, without the blackened fingertips, and as many newspapers as I want to read fit right inside my iPad.

Green education - top Green colleges and high-school initiatives

As the green economy has moved to the center of the economic recovery in 2010 and environmental and social reponsibility awareness have increased, more and more students are looking for 'green' education.

Nowadays, about two-thirds of college applicants are interested in environmentally responsible schools and whether the campus is ‘green’. Prominence, location and vibrant social life are not the only criteria. Several higher education collges and universities in the US have a strong commitment to sustainability and have been working rigorously to reduce their environmental impact. Some of their initiatives are inspiring as the colleges go beyond recycling or using biodegradable tableware and utensils in the cafeterias, or retrofitting solar panels on roofs. Several have organic gardens, waste treatment centers, and programs to offset carbon emissions.
