Porsche Panamera


The Porsche Panamera - Love it or hate it, if in the luxury sport car market in the $90k-$160k market don't over look this machine. It truly is a engineering marvel from one of the most pretigious car companies out there that begs to be driven.

Clean Air Cab

At Clean Air Cab our mission is to make it affordable and convenient for everyone to go green. We plan to accomplish this by offering carbon neutral taxicab rides for less money than our local top competitors. Many people think it is expensive, bulky and time-consuming to go green. At Clean Air Cab our vision is to change that. We want going green to be more than just the right choice - we want it to be an easy choice and an inexpensive choice. That's right; at Clean Air Cab we are helping you go green for less. The traditional Taxicab produces 71.8 tons of CO2 per year compared to the 2010 Toyota Prius which produces only 24.7 tons. Offsetting our emissions by purchasing carbon credits, our taxicabs leave an invisible footprint; making Clean Air Cab Arizona's carbon neutral taxicab fleet. We also go one step farther by investing in local and global reforestation making our cabs carbon negative! Our entire fleet is composed of brand new Toyota Prius' and we have also partnered with a local company to offset the small amount of emissions produced by our vehicles. Clean Air Cab makes a conscious effort to choose vendors that are local in effort to support small business and our local community. We also create green jobs with opportunities for our employees to become savvy business owners through seminars and education tools that we provide. At Clean Air Cab we believe that Philanthropy is a way of life. We plant ten trees per month for each cab we have on the road and we also encourage our employees to perform volunteer work and give back to the community. Not only do we believe in helping the environment, we also believe in helping people. Our business model is to take care of our employees so we can make sure our employees take care of you. We believe in making business decisions that are win-win for everyone doing business with our company.
Our taxicabs will be hitting the streets of Phoenix this fall. At Clean Air Cab, while we believe in clean air, we also believe in clean cabs. Our brand new taxicabs will always be clean and fresh for your ride. We are proud of our service and we are also proud to be creating green jobs in the community. In these challenging economic times we are facing as a country, we feel creating new eco-friendly jobs and offering a premium service at a budget price are the best ways we can contribute to our community. We are proud and excited for the adventure that lies ahead of us as we prepare to launch our new company. Please show your support for our vision by voting for us below. Help us change the taxicab paradigm and create a "green" taxi revolution!
Lets help save the planet and get a ride from this company!

Urban Wildlife in Arizona

By Arizona Game & Fish Department
http://www.azgfd.com/

People who live in or visit Arizona can expect to see many species of wildlife. More and more often though, wild animals are venturing into areas where people live. Sometimes the wildlife becomes a problem, either by hammering on the side of the house, digging a den under the front porch, or eating all of your brand new landscaping plants. You can usually enjoy wildlife watching from a distance, but sometimes wildlife encounters involve conflict.
Preventing problems with wildlife is much simpler and less aggravating than dealing with the problems after they occur. Fortunately, taking a few simple steps can help you prevent many of the most common wildlife-related problems around your home. A number of proven methods can be used to solve the problem when it cannot be prevented. These web pages were developed to provide residents of Arizona with information about how to coexist with Arizona’s wildlife, especially in urban areas.

Tom's Shoes


Shoes?

Before you buy another pair of shoes check out TOMS Shoes and support the cause! http://www.tomsshoes.com/

One for One

TOMS Shoes was founded on a simple premise: For every pair you purchase, TOMS will give a pair of shoes to a child in need. One for One. Using the purchasing power of individuals to benefit the greater good is what we're all about.

Thier Story
In 2006 an American traveler, Blake Mycoskie, befriended children in Argentina and found they had no shoes to protect their feet. Wanting to help, he created a company that would match every pair of shoes sold with a pair given to a child in need. One for One. Blake returned to Argentina with a group of family, friends and staff later that year with 10,000 pairs of shoes made possible by caring TOMS customers.
Since our beginning, TOMS has given over 140,000* pairs of shoes to children in need through the One for One model. Because of your support, TOMS plans to give over 300,000 pairs of shoes to children in need around the world in 2009.
Our ongoing community events and Shoe Drop Tours allow TOMS supporters and enthusiasts to be part of our One for One movement. Join us.

Why shoes?
Most children in developing countries grow up barefoot. Whether at play, doing chores or just getting around, these children are at risk.
Walking is often the primary mode of transportation in developing countries. Children can walk for miles to get food, water, shelter and medical help. Wearing shoes literally enables them to walk distances that aren't possible barefoot.

Wearing shoes prevents feet from getting cuts and sores on unsafe roads and from contaminated soil. Not only are these injuries painful, they also are dangerous when wounds become infected. The leading cause of disease in developing countries is soil-transmitted parasites which penetrate the skin through open sores. Wearing shoes can prevent this and the risk of amputation.

Many times children can't attend school barefoot because shoes are a required part of their uniform. If they don't have shoes, they don't go to school. If they don't receive an education, they don't have the opportunity to realize their potential.
There is one simple solution...SHOES.

Four of the planet's six billion people live in conditions inconceivable to many. Lets take a step towards a better tomorrow.
