Efficient, Innovative & Better Every Day

Beet ice and snow before Calgarians erupt

Beet 55 and Zeolite as snow and ice removers are a great innovation I first recall hearing about in the 1990's on a CTV news report about this idea by University of Colorado researchers. I then followed up with my own research on this topic(not applied, but other reports os same). This idea then reverberated in my thinking since that time.

Pokemon-Go-Vote

Games like Pokémon-Go make a profit off using public space for their game-play.

A Vibrant, Safe Intersection

Jumbotron!

(This idea is submitted on behalf... more »
