Beautiful floor lamps by Valerio Cometti+V12 Design

Lamps were made ​​in ancient times.
Copper cookware with oil lamps glass models with gas as fuel. Today the lamps have reached a design and technology to design integrated their unimaginable a few years ago,
These stages of transformation in which form and use floor lamps have passed this time and offer a very wide diversity in terms of floor lamps.
Contemporary lamps not only provide a soft light in the room where real parts are installed and are integrated into our home design.

The first step to changing the Mapo Oil Reserve Base, a relic of the industrial era

1. Background and purpose of the competition
Due to safety concerns, the oil stockpile was moved when the 2002 World Cup Stadium was built, and was closed once the oil reserves were transferred in November 2000. The area has remained closed for more than 10 years, because an appropriate use for the land has not yet been found.
The reserve is located in Sangam, which is an area of regeneration that gives back to both nature and citizens. It was once an abandoned mountain of waste, but now stands as a state-of-the-art city that leads the future of Seoul. Sangam has achieved a communication and co-existence between people and nature.
As the Sangam DMC takes steps to balance its composition, the oil reserve base, "a relic of the industrial era", has the potential to increase the DMC’s value.
As Sangam’s last remnant of land, the oil reserve base will be returned to the citizens through the ideas of students and professionals who reflect the meaning and value of the land, and regenerate the space to meet this new era’s core values of environment & ecology and sustainable future.

Department of Energy scientists at the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory say they’ve reduced nature’s million year process of turning algae into crude oil to one than takes less than an hour. The engineers created a chemical process that produces crude oil minutes after it is poured into harvested algae. The reaction is not only fast, but also continuous since it produces a recyclable by product containing phosphorus that can then be used to grow more algae. Watch a video of the process after the jump.

Arctic ice is melting at an alarming rate, and a new report by a group of economists and polar scientists published in Nature asserts that the thaw is an economic time-bomb that could cost the world trillions of dollars due to methane released by thinning permafrost. More than 50 gigatons of methane lie trapped beneath the East Siberian Sea, and the release of this potent greenhouse gas due to a warming climate could have catastrophic consequences for the world economy and the planet as a whole.

BP has finally agreed to settle all federal and state claims over the 2010 Deepwater Horizon oil spill with a record $18.7 billion payment—the largest environmental fine in U.S. history. With an estimated 210 million gallons of oil discharged into the Gulf of Mexico, the 2010 environmental disaster is the biggest offshore oil spill in American history, claiming 11 worker lives and causing extensive and ongoing damage to wildlife, human health, and the economy. BP’s settlement is the “largest settlement with a single entity in American history,” according to U.S. Attorney General Loretta E. Lynch. If approved by a judge, the settlement will bring BP’s total spending over the oil spill to $53.8 billion.
