    This is a simple DIY project using a normal bike and a treadmill motor. The total cost for the project is just a couple dollars for the rear foot pegs to hold the bike in place. A used treadmill was found for free and the motor taken out. Some scrap wood makes the generator frame. An old tractor V belt runs around the bike tire and turns the motor. The motor puts out quite a lot of power into the batteries. See how to make one here: http://www.thediyworld.com/DIY-Bicycle-Powered-Generator.php

        What's the single biggest contribution to business success? asks this documentary written and directed by Jon Danzig. The answer: developing the skills of all the staff. The film, part of a series of films and books called, "People Power at Work", demonstrated to employers that successful businesses invest in their staff, offer continuous training and share openly their company's vision. In the mid 1990s this video was shown to business managers throughout the UK, with customised versions produced for different regions of the country. As a direct result of this film, many businesses signed up to the Investors in People award and learnt how to harness their 'People Power'. A companion video, "People Power for Employees", demonstrated to staff that lifelong learning and the Investors in People award would result in great benefits to their prospects and working life. 'People Power for Managers' - written and directed by Jon Danzig. Presented by Sue Lawley, John Humphrys and Beverley Ashworth. Editorial Consultant Mike Peart. Lighting cameramen Richard Day and Ray Nicholson. Video editing Jonathan Bravo and Jon Danzig. Production Manager Elena Zokas.

              This is a thank you to all those 14,000 people who helped sign a petition to ensure Camden Sound Marine Park (7,062 square kilometres) received a high level of marine protection - including the largest marine sanctuary in WA's waters - Montgomery reef (1400 hectares). It's not a perfect plan still allowing mining exploration and trawling in the general use zones- but it was a vast improvement from the plans.

                Elenita and Elmer Ordonez were among the first to return to the Philippines after the fall of martial law in 1986 which had driven them into exile in Canada. During their exile, they formed part of the progressive Filipino community here in Montreal and kept up their support for the people's movement back home, working to build ties of solidarity between Quebec, Canada and the Philippines. We remember Elenita for her passion and pride in the Filipino language and culture. In the Philippines, she had been among the movement of academics promoting Filipino as language of instruction in universities and colleges. We have kept in touch over the years, and much enjoyed our visits with Elenita and Elmer and their family in Imus. In 2012, the Philippines has lost a patriot and an artist and we join her family and friends in mourning the loss of Elenita.

                  Santa Claus has come to Santa Cruz in 2112 to turn over a new leaf. He has sworn off unfair worker practices, animal cruelty and 18 wheelers and instead he's giving green gifts like solar panels and vermi-composting kits. Since the north pole melted in 2032, Santa has been looking for a new home base for his factories. The local business atmosphere of Santa Cruz is the perfect place for one of his Bio-Regional Autonomous Elf Collectives. The unsustainable growth and transit practices of cities like Santa Cruz in 2012 created the greenhouse gases that melted the north pole, hopefully the city council will act now to save the North Pole for Santa and the polar bears.

                    Organic Farmer Batya Kagan and the SC 2112: Underwater Tour send a message from the future about sad fate of the world famous Downtown Santa Cruz Farmers Market. Fortunately in 2012 it's not too late to act; the mighty Climate Action Plan being drafted by the Santa Cruz City Council has the power to save the farmers market by prioritizing sustainable transit and lifestyles over more cars, more traffic, and more parking lots.
