Sony Develops a Battery That Runs on Paper

Comments Off on Sony Develops a Battery That Runs on Paper

It seems that renewable energy now grows on trees as electronics giant Sony has announced it’s developed a battery made from paper. Before you start thinking you can charge your iPhone with a standard piece of A4, it’s a bit more technical than that. Specifically, Sony’s battery uses enzymes in order to catalyse and break down the glucose stored within the cellulose of the wood pulp fibres that make up your average sheet of paper. Hey, it’s a start!

How can I reuse or upcycle trainer socks/glove socks/foot socks?

Comments Off on How can I reuse or upcycle trainer socks/glove socks/foot socks?

About seven or eight years ago now, I had a bit of a thing for trainer socks/glove socks/foot socks — those socks that stop before your ankle so they almost disappear in trainers/sneakers — and bought quite a few pairs to wear for work. Now seven or eight years later, arrgh, I hate them. They always slip down so my trainers rub the back of my ankle, and they’re useless in walking boot style shoes where you need the protection further up as well. It’s not even a “hide-the-unsightly-cuff” issue any more because my jeans are always way too long so you can barely see my shoes, let alone a gap between the hem & the shoe, and on the very, very rare occasion I wear a skirt or shorts, I’ll be more than likely wearing them with nice no-sock shoes or flip-flop/sandals anyway. After slowly growing to despise them over the last couple of years, I decided to evict them from my sock drawer last night. I counted 24 pairs. Yes, I clearly had a big thing for them seven or eight years ago. Anyway, now I have 24 pairs of ankle-cuff-less foot socks which need reusing or upcycling. They’ve all been well used so aren’t really in a position to be passed along – but equally, have a bit more life in them than to just become cleaning rags — so I’m looking for upcycling ideas really. Some ideas I’ve had so far: attached two pairs together to make above-ankle socks; Alice’s moth-repellent idea ; stuff with cat nip to make a cat toy; use them to make sock monsters (although they’re mostly plain so might be dull). Any other ideas?

Comments Off on California Unveiled New Ecoplate To Mixed Reviews

California’s New Whale Ecoplate image from California Coastal Commission This past Tuesday, after twenty years, California unveiled a new ecoplate. The new ecoplate looked a lot like the old one, but with a more modern touch, some water drops and a bit more sunshine in the backdrop. While many people liked the new design and the Mayor of Santa Monica encouraged California residents to buy one, not everyone was happy with the new design, especially Wyland, the artist, who designed the former one….

Comments Off on Weekday Vegetarian: Aloo Kofta – Fried Potato Balls

Photo: Emma Alter Here is the second of the recipes that I promised you in my post on saag aloo yesterday. I inadvertently added more lemon juice to the potatoes than the recipe called for, so they were a bit more piquant than intended, but we all agreed that it didn’t matter at all, they were still really delicious.
