Power to the people. Give us the sun.

Cover your roof with it, connect your cell to a piece of it. Mobile energy is the next step. Print with solar ink a large poster or wear solar fabric. With a machine that was meant to print labels, now thousands of rolls of solar film are produced in Massachusetts and solar flexible panels for construction in Michigan. Learn more about this change at konarka.comuni-solar.com and get a sunbag at energy-sunbags.de

Feel like Italian today? Go to Eataly

The high-end Italian food concept market just opened in NY. Eataly, created by Oscar Farinetti and originally from Torino. The NY store is importing the yeast from Italy and buying from local farmers to preserve quality and flavor. Distributed as separate departments, a butcher, a fishmonger, fresh pasta, artisan cheese, cured meats, and hand-made mozzarella. Inside are also restaurants, the Pizzeria Rossopomodoro run by two chefs direct from Naples, Il Manzo, an Italian steakhouse and soon a 300-seat rooftop beer garden... Enjoy the good things in life, the art of cooking and eating well! Visit eataly.it and see great pics of the NY store at psfk.com/eataly
