Brilliant Phan Sets Adorable Muppets Video To Phish Music, And It’s Awesome

first_imgSometime deep in the hours of last night’s insane San Francisco run-closer, one fan uploaded a music video for the Phish song “Let Me Lie,” a song originally written for Trey Anastasio’s Bar 17 album and re-recorded on Phish’s 2009 Party Time. The song was also recently busted out earlier this summer, during the band’s performance at the XFINITY Theatre in Hartford. Starring in the music video are the lovable Muppets, Kermit and Piggy, who take bike rides through the park and “ride it slowly.”Enjoy this sweet love story, courtesy of YouTube user Chris M, which you can watch by clicking the video below!last_img read more

Camels Hump Middle School to serve as test site for solar program

first_imgGreen Mountain Power Corp,Camels Hump Middle School is well on its way to hosting a $500,000 solar installation that could serve as a statewide model for power generation and renewable energy education. Thanks in large part to federal funding secured by Senator Sanders and grants from the state’s Clean Energy Development Fund and Green Mountain Power, the Chittenden East school district will convert the roof of the 37 year-old school into a 72kW solar array.”In 1992, we were one of the first schools in Vermont to convert to biomass heating,” said Chittenden East superintendent Jim Massingham. “We are looking forward to taking this next step in showing the way to greater efficiency and hope that our project will help make it easier for other schools to make the best use of their resources. Having a system like this operational on our campus will also provide an invaluable educational resource for our students.”Like many of the schools built in the 1960’s and 70’s, Camels Hump features a large, flat roof, and was originally heated using electricity, which required a particularly good connection to the power grid. This combination provides the perfect environment for a large-scale solar installation. The school’s location in full view of Interstate 89 makes it an excellent demonstration site as well.”Their proposal fit perfectly with our Solar On Schools plan and Green Mountain Power’s ongoing effort to help build out solar capacity in Vermont,” said Mary Powell, Green Mountain Power president and chief executive officer. “By working with schools, we can help to provide a direct community benefit through cost savings while also cutting carbon output and bringing us closer to our goal of installing 10,000 panels in 1,000 days.”David O’Brien, Commissioner of the Department of Public Service, said this project fits in with Vermont values: “We know from our public engagement process that Vermonters want to see more in-state renewable energy projects. We’re pleased to see the state and federal government, private industry and public schools all come together to build renewable energy in our communities.”The project received $260,442 in federal funds secured by Senator Sanders, $250,000 from Vermont’s Clean Energy Development Fund and $25,000 in funding and technical support from Green Mountain Power, making the project cost effective for the local community. “This project will not only help the Camels Hump Middle School reduce its electric bill and carbon footprint, but will be a major step forward in moving our state toward a greener economy which relies more and more on sustainable energy,” Senator Sanders said. “There is little doubt in my mind that in the years to come the energy mix in this state will be very different than it is today — with a far greater reliance on sustainable energy. I hope that this project becomes a model for what can be done and a catalyst for further action.”The 345 panels will generate about 82,551 kWh each year or 12% of the schools’ annual electric usage. Over the 25-year life of the system, almost two million pounds of carbon dioxide will be offset. The school is also investigating simultaneous replacement of the building’s original power transformers that are nearing the end of their operational life.”We hope that the success of this project will lead to similar improvements at the other schools in our service territory and throughout the state,” said Ms. Powell.About Green Mountain PowerGreen Mountain Power (www.greenmountainpower.com(link is external)) transmits, distributes and sells electricity and utility construction services in the State of Vermont in a service territory with approximately one quarter of Vermont’s population.

Seven reasons to provide your members with mobile apps

first_imgby: Robb GaynorIn order to keep up with the evolving trends of modern technology, it is important to maintain a strong place in the market by keeping your members satisfied. If you are not innovating, you are falling behind. There are seven reasons why credit unions should provide mobile apps:Generate a return. Mobile banking can be used to drive revenue for credit unions. Expedited payments and P2P payments are features that can both generate fee revenue, as they provide the convenience that consumers and businesses crave. Mobile can and does provide convenience, so credit unions can charge for it.Cross-selling. The mobile channel can be used to cross-sell other products and features within the mobile banking app, as well as inform your business and consumer members about your credit union. In fact, the ad space in an app can generate up to a 12%-15% “touch-through” rate.  Mobile ads and messages are much more engaging than their Internet banking counterparts. Whether you are featuring a high-interest savings account or CD or simply informing consumers and businesses about your community involvement, mobile ads engage end-users and can be used to help build a solid ROI for the channel.Save money. Mobile banking cuts costs. Simple examples, such as mobile check capture, lower transaction and processing costs for credit unions. By moving expensive activities to the mobile self-service channel, lower costs are attainable. Other examples, such as moving an end-user to mobile e-statements on an iPad, will also realize cost savings by taking out production costs. The more members who use mobile, the more savings can be attained. continue reading » 17SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblrlast_img read more
