In March, Scripps Networks Interactive, our parent company, opened a new LEED-registered building at our headquarters in Knoxville, Tenn. I love our sunlight-bathed, eco-friendly, beautiful digs featuring wall-sized windows, an open floor plan, brightly-colored, ergonomic furniture, and natural materials like bamboo and cork. One of my favorite features is the plant-covered living wall in the lobby.

You can make your own living wall like this one from Green Your Decor using recycled aluminum cans.

Drill a drainage hole in the bottom of the can, paint with low VOC paint, fill and install.

Decrease the DIY factor (but increase your cost) and purchase an all-in-one unit with a cedar holder and watering system.

Feast your eyes on this amazing plant wall growing on the side of the PNC Bank building in Pittsburgh. The largest in North America, it requires only 15 minutes of watering per week in warmer months.

    I was wondering if you ever thought of changing the structure of your site?
    Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
    But maybe you could a little more in the way of
    content so people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or 2
    images. Maybe you could space it out better?

  8. Eine der wichtigsten Dinge, die ich empfehlen kann, ist immer ein Auto-Test vor der Unterzeichnung dieser Papiere. Es gibt eine Menge Dinge zu suchen in einer Probefahrt. Einige von ihnen, die Handhabung, Park F盲higkeit, Gadgets, Raum (Beinraum und Lager, wenn Sie sich Mountainbike. Lieben), Beschleunigung und L盲rm. Eine der 盲rgerlichsten Sachen ist, wenn Sie Ihre ge枚ffnetem Schiebedach und es macht mehr L盲rm als die h枚chste Ebene Ihrer Lautsprecher. Lassen Sie niemals die l盲stigen Verkaufs M盲nner bekommen Sie in etwas, das Sie nicht wollen, denn es gibt kein Zur眉ck mehr. Denken Sie daran, es gibt keine Eile. Nehmen Sie sich Zeit und machen Sie Ihre Entscheidung, weil Sie Tag f眉r Tag f眉r Tag fahren um in ihr zu haben sind.

  9. Sur les deux mesures, Lee estime l’efficacit茅 du capital est plus important. Consid茅rez Franklin Resources, qui a l’air fabuleux bas茅 sur sa marge nette moyenne sur dix ans de 27,4%. Mais au cours de la m锚me p茅riode, tandis que le revenu net cumul茅 a 茅t茅 de 2,3 milliards de dollars, les fonds propres de Franklin (de fonds propres et de la dette) progress茅 de 2,6 milliards de dollars, r茅sultant en un taux de rendement du capital de 0,9. Une tr猫s grande entreprise, dit Lee, devrait avoir un taux de rendement du capital de trois 脿 quatre. En d’autres termes, chaque dollar investi devrait g茅n茅rer au moins 3 $ en b茅n茅fices apr猫s imp么t. (R茅sultat: Il ne poss猫de pas de Franklin.)
