To LED or not to LED? That is the question
By Pamela Tresp
According to the U.S. Energy Information Administration, commercial and institutional buildings, public street and highway lighting consumed about 274 billion kWh for lighting — roughly 21 percent of total commercial sector electricity consumption in 2012. The October 2014 issue of LD+A magazine cited that electricity for lighting consumes totals up to 461 billion kWh each year. With so much energy use at stake, as Dan Mellinger writes in LD+A, "LED recessed troffers represent the single largest potential energy savings opportunity."

The low-key billionaire behind the lingerie giant
Forbes
The billionaire who single-handedly changed how America shops has an inner sanctum as enigmatic as he is: the corner of a nondescript office building in Columbus, Ohio, across the road from a garbage dump, behind a security gate festooned with "Do Not Enter" signs. While the communal spaces are properly blinged-out with pink walls, lacy bits of lingerie and a big screen rolling endless tape of nearly naked supermodels, the chamber itself is a confused mess of binders and papers straight out of The Absent-Minded Professor. Nearly every surface is devoted to knickknacks – a 3-foot-long pencil here, an Ohio State Monopoly board there – or stacks of books.

Some 104 stores in the Los Angeles market will begin to sell a line of what the chain calls "nutritionally balanced" fresh sandwiches, wraps and salads — and even cold-pressed juices — under the banner of fitness guru Tony Horton Kitchen.
