Complete but unrestored 1949 Willys Jeep Delivery for sale on Hemmings.com. From the seller's description: Very original, relatively rare 4×2 Willys Panel Wagon in All There condition, owned by the same family since 1959. Original California vehicle, it was parked in 1963 in Hollywood, California by the second owner. In 2009, to avert a sale to the junk yard, another family member moved it to a garage in Duarte, California in 2009, with the goal of fully restoring it, but time and space are simply not resources available at this time. As such it's time to find it a new caretaker. The body All of the steel is clean and straight except for tiny square windows that were installed at the rear of the panels; the doors open and close easily; the glass is in very good condition showing only a tiny bit of delaminating occurring at the edges; the trim and brightwork is good, but in need of serious cleaning or replating; there are no major dents or dings to speak of, although the right side area under the door has sustained some light damage; the roof is very straight like 99% of the rest of this vehicle.

And when the sun does shine, the microgrid absorbs enough solar within seven hours of sunlight to fill the Powerpacks to full capacity. Such a system will provide a more consistent power supply that doesnt involve rationing during outages — a system Ta’u residents had become used to under the old fuel-based system. “Once diesel gets low, we try to save it by using it only for mornings and afternoons,” explains Ahsoon . “It’s hard to live not knowing what’s going to happen. I remember growing up using candlelight.” An even bigger solar farm is now being installed by Tesla and Solar City, offering nearly 55,000 solar panels on the Hawaiian island of Kauai. Tesla CEO Elon Musk has announced that the companies plan on building hundreds more of these installations. “Living on an island, you experience global warming firsthand,” Ahsoon says . “Beach erosions and other noticeable changes are a part of life here.

If you've ever thought about having a light-up dance floor at an event, the chances are you will have been shocked at the rental cost. Doing your best impression of a young John Travolta in Saturday Night Fever doesn't come cheap, it seems. When faced with this problem before the Furnal Equinox 2017 convention, [Av] and friends decided instead to build their own LED-lit floor . Their design and build is shown in the video we've placed below the break, and though each individual light unit is straightforward it is the scale of the project and its epic build that makes it a very impressive achievement. There are 64 panels of 4 light cells, giving a total of 256 cells and 7680 RGB LEDs arranged as 2560 pixels. Each panel has a shift register PCB interfacing LEDs to the Teensy that controls the floor, and there are also microswitches talking to an Arduino Mega which provides the floor with interactivity.

Apartment XIV is a modest 80 square meter (approx. 861 square feet) apartment in a 150 year old Haussmannian building owned by a young couple with an adorable dog. They hired Studio Razavi Architecture to redefine the space and to update it for their modern taste and lifestyle. The kitchen's backsplash got its own intervention with geometric marble pieces fit together like a mosaic puzzle. The pieces were scraps leftover at a marble quarry in Portugal. The classic Parisian layout wasn't working so the architect decided to break up the space with geometric structures that not only add more functionality to the apartment, but they change how the apartment looks and flows. The new elements were made from wood fiber panels by Valchromat due to them being budget-friendly as well as easy to use and cut on-site. Above the bathroom, they incorporated a sleeping loft for guests, ensuring that no space was left unused.

‘I bought my first one when I was 21 and before I went to work for BMW. It was an S54, a very rare model, metallic grey with a red and black interior." "I wish I’d never sold it. I kept it for about a year and used it for some trackdays, a European road trip and a visit to the Nürburgring. It was very road-trip friendly, effortless and tireless. ‘I then bought a Z4 M Coupe – I just assumed it was the right way to move on. But I soon found that I missed the Z3 M’s quirks and charms and realised that I had to have another. ‘Currently I have a black example with black interior that I bought about two and half years ago. It had 108,000 miles on the clock and I picked it up for £8500. Yes it was cheap, but I bought it on the understanding that there was a lot of work – a lot of expensive work – to be done on it. I’m turning it into a track toy and have stripped it of some of the heavy interior fittings and put on some lightweight panels so that it now weighs 1280kg.

A carefully crafted accent wall doubles as a design feature for the upstairs living room and for the stairs. It also serves as a cosy reading spot for the homeowner. This living room focuses more on comfort, with the soft carpets, snug designer couches and comforting throw blankets. It doesn't cut back on the style though, intricate ornaments adorn the room, making for a lavish space. Glass panels add dimension to the room and indicate that the top floor is for the exclusive use of the homeowners. While playing the piano, you're treated to the glorious view of the manicured forest type garden outside... what could be better? The sublime master bedroom is the epitome of comfort and opulence. The trendy monochromatic color scheme is utilized to perfection while the bed is the picture of warmth and contentment. The fashionable young couple can enjoy the entire top floor as their master bedroom, they can even enjoy the view from the comfort of their own bed! Arguably the most luxurious room in the townhouse, the bathroom sports LED lighting, his-and-hers amenities and glass panels.

When you think of solar, you probably think of vast fields of black panels on large-scale farms, producing enormous quantities of power. But the real engine of the solar movement is on rooftops in the regional and urban fringe.

[ Politico ] LAWMAKERS MISREPRESENTING ACA IN LETTERS TO CONSTITUENTS - Maw dearest Irma, the fightin is hard, and the death panels are rampant, but with God as my ally, and your love as maw shield, I shall fight this here socialism. Charles Ornstein: As the debate to repeal the law heats up in Congress, constituents are flooding their representatives with notes of support or concern, and the lawmakers are responding, sometimes with form letters that are misleading. A review of more than 200 such letters...found dozens of errors and mischaracterizations about the ACA and its proposed replacement. The legislators have cited wrong statistics, conflated health care terms and made statements that dont stand up to verification. Its not clear if this is intentional or if the lawmakers and their staffs dont understand the current law or the proposals to alter it.

When needed, they can then be flipped out and begin scouting. "They can do parallel science with a rover, so you can increase the amount you're doing in a day," said Jaakko Karras, PUFFER's project manager at JPL. "We can see these being used in hard-to-reach locations squeezing under ledges, for example." PUFFER is equipped with two treaded wheels, a tail for stability and solar panels on its belly that allow it to flip over to recharge. A high-resolution micro-imager allows it to see objects just 10 micrometres in size. Rugged environments So far the bot has been tested in a variety of rugged environments a ski resort in Grand Junction, Colorado, in Big Bear, California, and on Mount Erebus, an active volcano in Antarctica. On a flat path it can manage about 625 metres on one battery charge. The next step is to figure out what instruments to add for maximum usefulness to future space research.

With the reduce of technology costs, more and more households will be interested in the transition to their own sources of power generation (solar panels or wind turbines). It is also very important to resolve the “rules of the game” and to simplify licensing procedures as much as possible. Third, the reduce of energy consumption in Ukraine will be a major step to achieve energy independence. It isnt a secret that we have great opportunities to reduce energy consumption in the residential sector (through insulation, installation of meters, transition to more efficient technologies). Industry sector has the similar objectives as well. Actually, these things are discussed for a long time in Ukraine, and there is no exclusive or unique recipe. The main thing is to move from words to real changes. The post The Reforms Guide: Expert says hitting 2020 goal for gas production will be difficult' appeared first on KyivPost .

The cost for individual homes in the U.S. to "go solar" has dropped by more than 60 percent over the last decade. Those low costs helped convince more than a million Americans to install solar panels on their roofs. Now schools are beginning to get in on the benefits. One of them is the school system in Fremont, Indiana. The residents of this small town in America's upper Midwest have always relied on the sun to warm their fields and draw tourists to their lakes. Now school superintendent William Stitt said they’re counting on it to power their schools. "The technology has advanced so much in the last couple of years that it’s become more energy efficient, more cost effective for schools to get solar energy," Stitt said. Start-up cost Construction of the solar project will cost $3 million. But when finished, it will completely power the elementary, middle and high school buildings.
