LITERATURE» Full Dark, No Stars - Stephen King's new novella questions mankind's ability to trust others.
MUSIC» The Top 30 Albums of 2010 - Fashionably, fabulously late, our favorite music (and believe me, there was a LOT) of 2010, the year that some have called the best year for music ever. And only some of those fools work here. Plenty of usual suspects, lots of ties and a few surprises that I won't spoil, including our unexpected #1.
MUSIC» Live: Surfer Blood/The Drums at Lincoln Hall, Chicago, IL - Remember when Weezer used to put together records that you could sing along to and rock out to? That's what Surfer Blood's show was like!
Founded in the hippie and artist mecca of Mendocino County, California, Real Goods initially put itself on the map by becoming the first supplier of complete solar energy systems directly to the public. Under the leadership of founder John Schaeffer, the company's groundbreaking strides have continued ever since; Real Goods' foresight has seen a realization of steady profit increases, from just a few thousand dollars in the late 1970s to more than $20 million annually. Schaeffer continued pushing for new approaches to business, instituting a then relatively unheard of direct public stock offering to his customers in 1991.
Since going public, Real Goods has expanded its scope to include not only the sale of environmentally sound products--from solar panels and garden composters to greywater recycling systems and non-toxic household cleaners--but also the dissimenation of sustainable living techniques and information through its own Institute For Solar Living.
