    GCS - Green House Incubator - SolDeSal

    in Environment

    SolDeSal provides drinking water on a large scale from sea or brackish ground water.  A solar field of one square mile can sustain a city of a population of approximately 150 – 200 thousand.  Since the cost of produced water is low, the fresh water can also be used for irrigation of agricultural land providing a wide base for economic prosperity and growth.  The technology requires no other natural resources but sun and seawater. These resources are most abundant in areas where the population growth is the fastest and where fresh-water resources are the scarcest.

    The SolDeSal solution is based on a unique integration of conventional and new, patented technologies:  High Density Solar Thermal Steam Generator, High Temperature Thermal Storage System, 2D Matrix Multi Effect Distillation Unit, Direct Contact Air Cooled Condenser and Conventional Steam Turbine Generator.

    Frat House Sports' Red Zone Blitz #14

    in Football

    It’s the season of giving—and Frat House Mike and Brandon are back on the microphones, ready to give you their analysis of some of the biggest NFL games of the week: Arizona Cardinals 12 - St. Louis Rams 6 / Pittsburgh Steelers 27 – Atlanta Falcons 20 / Buffalo Bills 21 – Green Bay Packers 13 / Cincinnati Bengals 30 – Cleveland Browns 0 / Dallas Cowboys 38 – Philadelphia Eagles 27.

    Week 15 has many teams on the brink of the playoffs, while others are now worried about their potential to get into the playoffs. The Arizona Cardinals lost another quarterback, at a time when the division rivals Seahawks are starting to play HOT. The Green Bay Packers surprisingly lost to the Buffalo Bills, moving down in the playoff hunt as a now possible wild card. The Philadelphia Eagles lost their footing in the NFC East by losing to the Dallas Cowboys, and now need to depend on a Colts' win to possibly advance to the playoffs. And the Steelers' win keeps the AFC North interesting, as that division will come down to the last weekend of the season.

    The guys take a look at the league’s standings and playoff picture, as well as some of the big NFL stories of the week: Johnny “Football” Manziel had a dismal first showing; powerhouse DeMarco Murray suffered an injury, as the Cowboys look to make a playoff run; and the Chargers, just never seem to be good enough.

    We are heading into the BEST weeks of the NFL season, and Frat House Mike and Brandon will give it all to you, so sit down, grab a beer and listen to them dissect the Xs and Os! Give it a listen, give it a "follow", give them a shout out at 347 - 826 – 9964!
