SANYO's solar technology powers growing, environmentally conscious San Diego brewery



Southern California-based Stone Brewing Co. recently finished work on a 312-kilowatt SANYO HIT solar system, and on July 1st began generating its own power.  The system, installed by Borrego Solar of San Diego, will provide about 40% of the factory’s electricity and will save the company over $8,000 in monthly energy costs.  There was no initial cost, thanks to the California state rebate, Federal tax credits and the Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) program supported by Bank of America. 

“Environmental awareness and sustainability have been part of our corporate mission since day one,” noted Greg Koch, CEO of Stone Brewing Co., in discussing the new SANYO HIT installation. “SANYO’s state-of-the-art solar technology and reliability mesh perfectly with our business strategy and social responsibility to create this beautiful yet environmentally-friendly, cost-efficient facility.”   

Established in 1996, Stone Brewing Co., is one of the fastest growing breweries in the country.  The company’s newly opened restaurant, Stone Brewing World Bistro & Garden, located just next door to the brewery facility, offers locally grown organic fruits and vegetables.  Stone’s stylish new facility utilizes recycled materials, such as used wooden floors and bar counter, as well as bricks once used in the walls of a prominent hotel in downtown San Diego.  The gargoyle imagery, visible everywhere from the walls to the menus, symbolizes Stone Brewing’s commitment to quality and customer satisfaction.  Gargoyles have been used for centuries in European architecture, such as the Cathedral Notre Dame de Paris, to symbolize strength, style and purity. 

SANYO and Stone Brewing may have different business models, but they share the same core philosophy of being responsible stewards of the living earth, or GAIA.  “It is very encouraging that one of San Diego’s most respected companies is using SANYO’s solar technology,” commented  Akihiko Oiwa, a director of SANYO North America Corporation’s Corporate Communications department.  “We hope to see more corporations taking advantage of these attractive PPA incentives to utilize clean and reusable energy”.

ferrari motor bike



Well it seems like you can now get your hands on a Ferrari bike, ok a 1:12 scale model, damn those images they did fool me for a second. If Ferrari was to produce a superbike, it would look a little like this model. The original model was a Yamaha kit from Tamiya; however it has had a few modifications.

Let us hope that the guys at Maranello are looking and decide it is time to produce vehicles with two-wheels as well as their road cars.

There is no shortage of Italian built motorcycles, however there is just one Auto Company that we wish would produce a motorbike and that is Ferrari. Could you imagine if you had a superbike with a prancing horse on the front.

Langkawi Sky Bridge














Langkawi Sky Bridge

It's not a bridge to the sky, but it's not far from the idea! The Langkawi sky-bridge in Malaysia is suspended at 700 metres above sea level and spans 125 across the mountains, offering magnificent views of the Andaman Sea and Thailand's Tarutao Island. It's set apart from other bridges by its curves that provide different perspectives of the landscapes. Here's one of the most spectacular bridges in the world that delivers quite a pump of adrenaline.

World's costliest Commercial!! Must see....

This is the world's most costly Advertisement and the winner of this year's best Ad of the world.

It took 606 takes and re-takes to make this commercial and the total cost was $ 6.2 million for this 90 second commercial. You could probably make a movie for that kind of money!

Everything is real with no graphics used and still look at the precision. The team that made this commercial won many awards.

About voice and video chat

Since sometimes reading "lol" doesn't deliver the same punch as actually hearing your friend laugh at your jokes, you can now use voice and video capabilities in your Gmail chat. From within Gmail, you can have an actual conversation with someone (seriously, out loud), or even chat face to face over video.

Here's what you'll need to get started:

  • Download the Gmail voice and video chat plug-in, quit all open browser windows, and install the plug-in.
  • Sign in to Gmail.
  • In the Chat section of your Gmail, select the contact you want to call. If they have a camera icon next to their name, you can make a voice or video call to them; just click Video & more.

If your friend doesn't have a camera next to their name in your chat list, you can invite them to download the Gmail voice and video chat plug-in from the Video & more menu in a chat window. Even if your friend doesn't have a video camera, you can still make a voice call or a 1-way video call.
