Dear Starbucks, I am a real mermaid, not just a graphic on a plastic cup. As an ocean protection activist, environmental attorney and surf lover, I spend a lot of time at the beach and in the ocean. I want you to know that your "Green" Straws, plastic stirrers and mermaid cups are some of the most commonly found at the beach, contributing greatly to the plastic pollution crisis. Last week I met up with a dear friend and Rutgers University marine biologist who was visiting my hometown. We met at Starbucks. Here is the vision that greeted us upon entering my local Starbucks. Plastic straws and stirrers are the Number 7 most common item found on beaches worldwide on International Coastal Cleanup day, the single largest volunteer effort on the planet and source of valuable data for what ails our seas. Starbucks is undeniably one of the greatest sources of those straws and stirrers, along with plastic cups which come in at Number 5 most polluting and plastic lids at Number 3 most polluting. Not something to ...

Business News Roundup, Sept. 4 4.9.2015 SFGate: Business & Technology
Google is retiring its Photo Sphere Camera app on iOS and the Street View feature from the Google Maps app on Android in favor of a new app for both operating systems: the Street View app. The tech giant announced Thursday the standalone app will let people explore collections of 360-degree panorama photos of locations (both interior and exterior), and make their own contributions to public photo galleries. Users can snap 360-degree “spherical” photos directly from their Android phone or iPhone, or use a dedicated 360-degree camera such as the Ricoh Theta S or NCTech iris360. Other users can then view those images when they tap on a map location within the app. “In one gallery, you can explore Street View collections and content from Google Maps alongside photo spheres contributed from people around the globe,” said a product manager at Google Maps, Charles Armstrong. [...] whether you want to track the Loch Ness monster in Scotland, scale the famed rock wall El Capitan in Yosemite, or hike Mt. The ...

Gardening with Deb: Grace your garden with ornamental grasses 3.9.2015 Steamboat Pilot
Often when we think about bare spots in the garden, we consider shrubs, perennials or annual flowers to add color, texture, aroma or interest to an area. Another plant to consider in your Steamboat Springs-area garden is one of the ornamental grasses that grow well here. Grasses are practically pest-free and easy to grow perennials. These plants can handle poor soil and less than ideal weather conditions. Plus, they are striking in a garden filled with other types of vegetation. If you allow the ornamental grasses to remain throughout the winter, they add interest, texture and a bit of color to your garden year round. And when planted on a slope, they offer wonderful erosion control. Ornamental grasses bring two additional gifts to your garden — movement and sound as our afternoon winds blow through. They add a peacefulness to the garden and provide different sounds depending upon whether the grasses are fresh and green early in the season, or dry and straw-like later. When looking for ornamental ...
