What?Individuals can rent a bike from one location and drop them off at another rental machine in another location conveniently Can be membership based or per use charged.Hamilton planning to implementBenefits:Encourage exploration of the city, making good use of bike paths, encouraging less emissions by using a bicycle over an automobileEmployers encouraging employees to bike to work, ppl can bike to schoolCost:Dublin City Council is planning to charge €10 a year to join, with the first half an hour of rental free and very reasonable rates thereafter. Visitors to Dublin will be encouraged to rent a bike at a very attractive reduced fee.In the meantime, Toronto's bid to start an 80-station bike share downtown has hit a number of roadblocks. While the city has backed a $4.8-million loan to Bixi, it required that 1,000 members sign up and that the company land $600,000 in sponsorships.The deadline is Nov. 30 and so far, just over 400 people have bought a yearly $95 membership.The prices are reasonable — €10 for a 7-day subscription — the first 30 minutes are always free, then it’s €0,50 for the next 30 mins and €3,00 for every additional hour.

There are two types of Low-E glass hard coated and soft coated. Hard coated is more durable and easier to install than soft coated Low-E glass but has a lower insulating performance compared to soft coated Low-E glass (Carter, 2011). Soft coated Low-E glass is more fragile and can oxidize when exposed to moisture. This makes soft coated Low-E glass more expensive to install and maintain but it has a higher insulating performance compared to hard coated Low-E glass (Carter, 2011).
These systems are inefficient because majority of the warm and cool air is lost through the ventilation and they take longer to circulate the air throughout the building (EERE, 2011)Radiant heating is similar to when you place your hand over a hot stove. The warm feeling of heat in your hands is caused by radiant energy being released from the stove. The same effect is true when you walk through the frozen food section of a supermarket. The cooler air escaped from the freezers and cools that section of the store. Hydronic radiant systems use water in tubes that are mounted in panels that are installed into walls, ceilings and floors. North Cariboo Community College is a new 4,396m2 applied academic and research facility located in Quesnel, BC. Designed by Larry McFarland Architects and Stantec Consulting, the College is aiming for LEED Gold Certification.- 66% savings in energy consumption compared to a standard building.
