Weekly round-up

So much good stuff this week, it was hard to pick. But I have to say my favorite is the above video, which illustrates exactly how an engineer’s mind differs from the rest of ours. What would happen if we took that racing bike and put it inside that riding mower? To the shop!

Be like water

without comments

We’re working on getting our July issue to the press this week, and the whole thing focuses on water. We’ve got features on the best plants to use in drought-stricken climates, how to position your company as a water management adviser and a big set of data from homeowners on their perceptions of water in the landscape.

Some very cool stuff this week: New research examines the health benefits of green space, a big western city is raising water rates because people are saving too much water and Pittsburgh reinvents itself from a black smudge of steel factories to a champion of sustainability. There’s hope for us all.

See you next week.

An ad campaign a long time coming

Love these new commercials for John Deere equipment – the first such campaign for the guys in green in 175 years. A great example of sharing a powerful message in a short time.
