Comments Off on Use the Foldable Chesstache Chessboard to Challenge Friends When They Least Expect It

The Chesstasche  is an ultraportable chessboard that’s both stylish and sustainable. While creating the new game board, designers Laura Landy and Spencer Anastasio knew that they wanted to repurpose old materials and employ as little new packaging as possible. What they came up with was a simple, foldable board, each handmade locally using reclaimed textiles and wood. This fun accessory is great for chess enthusiasts, and is perfect for starting impromptu games. + Chesstasche The article above was submitted to us by an Inhabitat reader.

Solar Power Generation to Increase by 35 Times in Argentina

Comments Off on Solar Power Generation to Increase by 35 Times in Argentina

There is a good reason why Argentina’s flag sports a shining sun. At present, Argentina only produces about 10MW of solar power, but that figure is soon about to receive a giant boost as the country plans to increase its capacity by 35 times and the government begins to hand out incentives to private companies. International developers are looking to the western regions where projects are estimated to produce over twice the amount of energy coming from solar in Germany , the world’s current market leader. The plans would assist in the efforts of President Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner to increase the amount of energy generated by renewables from 2 percent to 8 percent by 2013.

Comments Off on New Study Links Water Pollution to Smaller Penis Size in Otters

A new study in Wales has uncovered a disturbing connection between pollution and shrinking penis size in otters. The report, from the Cardiff University Otter Project and Chemicals Health and Environment Department, found that chemicals present in both the environment and the food chain could be altering the hormones of the water mammal, causing a smaller penis bone. Aside from affecting the future spawn of otters, the scientists also worry that these ever-present chemicals could have serious effects on other mammals.
