Hi! I'm Dane Carlson, and welcome to the Business Opportunities Weblog. I've been publishing this website, by myself, and sometimes with the help of others for over twelve years now. You'll notice two things about this site right away:
Georgia Institute of Technology and Purdue University researchers have developed efficient solar cells using natural substrates derived from plants such as trees.
To figure out how to listen to trees, the French scientists drew on their knowledge of how trees take in water—essentially by drinking from a really long “straw.” Inside tree trunks are bundles of specialized tubes called xylem, which rely on the attractive forces between water molecules as well as those between water and plant cells to lift liquid to the highest leaves and branches.
It makes Bob Vasseur chuckle that people from around the world have “adopted” maple trees in his family’s Bragg Hill sugarbush through his neighbor Dori Ross’s year-old Tonewood Maple business.
By employing tension forces rather than using poles, the most comfortable and flexible range of accommodation can be achieved for a catalogue of different uses in every environment.
