Green living plus green savings: an efficient equation for today's homeowners



Across the world, both building professionals and consumers are embracing the idea of sustainable building practices. This practice follows a process that is environmentally responsible and resource efficient throughout a building's life cycle: from design to construction, operation to maintenance and renovation, to eventually, demolition. This practice expands and complements the classical building design concerns of economy, utility, durability and comfort.



Green building brings together a vast array of practices and techniques to reduce and ultimately eliminate the impacts of buildings on the environment and human health. It often emphasizes taking advantage of renewable resources, such as using sunlight to generate solar power and using plants to reduce rainwater run-off.



According to the Energy Information Administration, the demand for green homes is expected to rise 900 percent in the next five years.



In the home, using energy efficient appliances can dramatically reduce energy waste and cut costs. Companies like Miele offer a wide range of Energy Star rated appliances for every room in the house from the kitchen to the laundry room.



For example, Miele offers induction cook-tops, which use a non-contact method of heating using magnetic fields to transfer energy directly to cookware. The induction element stays cool, while the target object heats up rapidly for extremely efficient cooking. Like gas, induction is exceptionally easy and quick to control. The ability to precisely control the power makes induction perfect for all types of cooking. It is highly reactive and exceedingly safe. The cooking surface is cool in operation and only generates heat where the pan sits on it. As soon as the pan is removed, the flow of heat stops immediately.



For more information on the various types of energy efficient appliances available, visit www.mieleusa.com.



Young, savvy, environmentally-conscious consumers are at the forefront of the green movement. Programs like the Department of Energy's Solar Decathlon allow this demographic to create and design an energy efficient home.



The Solar Decathlon is a program that challenges collegiate teams to design, build, and operate solar-powered houses that are cost-effective, energy-efficient, and attractive. The winner of the competition is the team that best blends affordability, consumer appeal, and design excellence with optimal energy production and maximum efficiency. This year's winner was the University of Maryland Team WaterShed.



"We are extremely pleased to be partnering with Miele on our entry into last year's Solar Decathlon competition," says Brian Grieb, University of Maryland Team WaterShed's faculty project manager. "Miele has a reputation for providing elegantly designed, environmentally conscious, cost-efficient products that are constructed with longevity in mind. These attributes are exactly the qualities we were seeking to include in the WaterShed home."

Columbus's Ticket to Massively Muscle up in March: The 2017 Arnold Classic



 

The iconic man who starred in a 1984 classic during which he promised fervently that “I'll be back” was the founding individual for one of the most action-packed weekends in Ohio that exists. This event that is chock full of rock solid bodies, 70 different sports and events, and plenty to do for kids and teens is coming to Columbus March 2-5! First prize in bodybuilding rewards the superbly strong individual $130,000, a hummer vehicle, and a legendary fine-crafted Audemars Piguet Watch. This year will once again provide the opportunity to browse over 1,000 booths that showcase the latest in sports equipment, nutrition options, and apparel to wear on your next trip to the gym or other intense workout session.


The event kicks off on Thursday, March 2 with a weightlifting competition that is sure to get heart rates pulsing. During this year's event, there will be many celebrities on hand that star-struck fans will get the privilege of meeting. Randy Coutre from the UFC Hall of Fame will be appearing on Friday, March 3, and on March 5th, you can meet Brian Shawn, Two-time Arnold Strongman champ. Arnold Classic Champion Branch Warren, IFBB Pro Kyong Won Kang, 2-time Mr Olympia Franco Columbu, IFBB Pro Guy Cisternino JR, IFBB Pro Figure Heather Dees, and IFBB Pro Bikini figure Narmin Assria will be other icons that you can catch a glimpse of during this exciting event. There are dozens of other stars that will be here to please fans this year, and Fitness Star Paige Hathaway will also be sure to impress many onlookers this year at the Arnold Classic.


The Guns and Hoses Boxing event will be again held at the Hollywood Casino in Columbus, showcasing 24 amateur boxing matches that designate rivalries between police and firefighters. Presented by Title Boxing, this event will no doubt draw many who will be thrilled by the fast-action exhibition of flying punches and escalating trash talk. Preliminaries of Arm wrestling as well as the finals for the Men's and women's Physique Contest take place on Friday March 03, as well as the very exciting Arnold Model Search. Six male and six female finalists are to be selected by means of an online voting system, picked by magazine editors, professional photographers, and seasoned talent scouts.


Knowledge provides just as much power as physical strength, and the Arnold Summit will feature valuable seminars, workshops, and challenges presented by various sponsors and brand names. Here you can glean the wisdom centered around such very important topics as active shooter response, hormone replacement therapy, empowering women, and how to market like a human. The brand new Cardinal Building at the Ohio Expo Center will be filled with many stunning faces as the Arnold Cheerleading and Dance Team National Championships take place during the weekend; this is where you can witness raw enthusiasm, unbelievable dedication, and athletes benefiting from hours upon hours of hard work.


The best individual senior cheerleader will receive a scholarship worth $2,500, courtesy of the Arnold Sports festival, and the local Columbus Rotary. This is the caliber of event that Columbus is always going to remain proud to host, and one that you need to get to quickly: the scope here goes way beyond eye candy, and promotes the most illustrious in health and well-being.
