Quotes

"My view is, it'll make some people some money, but it's not much of a solution, because you're still burning fuel and creating emissions" said Daniel Kammen, director of the Renewable and Appropriate Energy Laboratory at UC Berkeley. "It's a good business deal."
Dineen told GTM, "I've never seen technology that has such great potential to transform the way we think about natural gas and renewables."
In an email sent to BostInno, Zuberi said he's "sure" the condo building has a no-sublease rule to protect residents. "I never paid attention to it though and never though a tenant would sublease this way."
...Customizable leather top covers give patients the ability to match their SOLS to their style. "SOLS has been able to take the orthotic scanning and prescription process from archaic and sterile to tech-savvy and fashionable. I have had many patients return to get additional pairs of SOLS after having such a positive experience and comfortable fit with the product" says Dr. Emily Splichal, DPM and human movement specialist
