WELCOME


Brooklyn Endeavor Experience (BEE) is officially launched! Take a peek around the new site to see what we're up to and HOW YOU CAN HELP!

We are in a crucial point in the development of our nation, New York City, and of course, BROOKLYN. We thought we'd kick off the new site with this clip of our President-Elect Barack Obama. Enjoy...



President Obama speaks at a fundraiser for Sen. Barbara Boxer about the BP oil spill and the government's response.

TURN OFFS ARE COOL and HUES YOU CAN USE
Posted By: SustainLane Staff


Myth: Shutting down a computer causes more harm to the hard drive and other components than the worth of the energy saved.

Conclusion: BUSTED.

This eco-myth was sent in by a SustainLane community member:

"Shutting down a computer causes more harm to the hard drive and other components than the worth of the energy saved. This myth keeps so many of my friends and co-workers machines on 24/7 (even over 4-day holiday weekends).”

Truth: Years ago, the accepted belief was that frequent starts and stops to your hard drive made it more prone to crashing. But with improved technology, it’s perfectly safe to start and stop your hard drive. Experts now say that the biggest threat to your hard drive is actually heat, which will cause your hard drive to age prematurely. Keep your computer as cool as possible as often as possible: shut it down when it’s not being used.

Powering down your computer at night will extend the life of your hard drive and conserve electricity. To save even more power, switch your computer monitor off when you leave your desk for long periods of time, like for lunch breaks or meetings.
