Step 1: Change those energy wasting lightbulbs!

DONE!!! 🙂

Join Greenpeace 7 Step Climate Campaign

According to Greenpeace 7 Steps initiative, Step #1 is to change old incandescent lightbulbs with new Compact Flourescent Lightbulbs (CFLs).
Thanks to my friend DAde that suggested me to check on IKEA for a complete set of CFL types, I brought about 400 euros of new lights! 😉

Q&A with Stanford foreign policy expert Larry Diamond on assassination of Benazir Bhutto

The tragic Dec. 27 assassination of Benazir Bhutto, the former prime minister of Pakistan, poses great challenges to that nation’s move to full democracy, while underscoring its importance in the war against terrorism. To gain some perspective on the situation, the Stanford News Service asked a few of the most pressing questions to Larry Diamond, a senior fellow at the Hoover Institution, a professor (by courtesy) of political science and sociology, and coordinator of the Democracy Program at the Center on Democracy, Development, and the Rule of Law.
