I know what your dorm stuff did last summer

substring(0, thispageresult. Although though this process has occurred for decades, not much has changed about the dilemma: students need to move, ship or store their belongings for the summer in limited spaces that are increasingly expensive. This year, the official move out will begin as finals take their leave on May 13. “It’s a pain,” College of General Studies sophomore Andres Febres said. “Last year, we had to take everything out of the dorms and put it in storage…
“We do a lot of storage deals where we pick up the students’ stuff they want to leave here from the dorms,” Abergal said. “We do it so much it’s become a painless procedure. “To be competitive with other local moving and storage companies, Michael’s Movers has routinely offered a student discount to keep students coming back, he said.

The ROI of green IT

But plenty of them also do it for the cost savings. Thus, I’m continually surprised by the persistent assumption that being environmentally conscious and fiscally smart are at odds with one another. Talking about the state of the country’s lagging economy, a guest on NPR recently suggested that the looming recession should compel organizations to abandon green IT initiatives. He essentially dismissed green efforts as “feel-good” projects that don’t do much to help an organization’s bottom line in the short- or midterm…
The premise behind the technology is pretty straightforward: It lets IT admins view all of their storage hardware as a great big pool and divvy up slices as needed, rather than allocating separate arrays for different business units that might not be taking full advantage of the pricey hardware you’ve set aside for them. The result, if all goes well: You can purchase just enough storage machinery to meet your organization’s collective needs, which means you’re paying less money for arrays running at 20 percent utilization while you pay for 100 percent of their drives to spin. Once again, you get a cost savings and an environmental benefit. (Notably, thin provisioning isn’t the only.
Weaver’s Cove offers new plan
Providence Journal – Mar 27, 2008
The company said it will soon file the plan with federal energy regulators in the hopes that it will be better received than its widely opposed plan to build an LNG terminal in Fall River. The berthing structures would secure an LNG ship in place during unloading operations, the company said, and support the beginning of a 4-mile pipeline that would be buried in a trench under portions of Mount Hope Bay and the Taunton River. The LNG would be piped to a storage tank and regasification facility in Fall River, where the company has proposed building an LNG terminal. The berthing platform would be located in waters within the town of Somerset, Mass. , about one mile from the nearest shoreline and two miles south of the Braga Bridge, Weaver’s Cove said. James Grasso, a company spokesman, said this new proposal does not replace the original proposal to build an LNG terminal in Fall River. “We are not giving up on our original proposal,” he said in a phone interview.
