The idea of decorating rooftops with solar panels has been around for a while, but an international team of scientists came up with a new concept of using artificial grass to generate energy. Apparently, synthetic fibers can work as a miniature wind turbine, producing power for the home with every breeze. The turboelectric generator (TENG) uses strips of artificial grass to generate an electric current. One side of a fiber blade can be coated with nanowires while the other with indium tin oxide. As the wind blows, fibers come into a contact with each other. It allows electrons to pass from one piece of grass to the next, generating an electric flow.

Recently in Los Angeles, water shortages are becoming more and more important to the city. Los Angeles officials are doubling their water-wasting patrols. Currently, they have one assigned inspector to investigate the city's neighborhoods. With these alerts, many residents are thinking of switching to artificial grass to save the water. The Los Angeles Department of Water and Power (DWP) reported to the city's press that it now assigned four water-wasting inspectors, but officials noted that their primary goal will be more towards educational than enforcement. Within six month of this year, their department received 1,400 reports of violations and handed out 863 warnings letters. But so far, relatively few fines have been issued, even though the state rules allow penalizing water wasters $500. They believe that the warning will decrease the water usage and inform the residence of a potential penalty. However, the penalizing fee is reserved for people who simply refuse to help out the state. During three-year observation, the DWP got about 30,000 reports of water violations, from those about 9,000 warning were issued. But only about 300 were assessed fines when they were found to have wasted water again, and of those, none became multiple offenders the first fine. Los Angeles city currently is in Phase 2 of a mandatory water-conservation ordinance, which means watering the yard no more than three times a week and never on weekends.

Even though it "feels like" we were hunting aster eggs a few days ago, our favorite season is almost upon us... FOOTBALL SEASON!!! Whether you favor the professional teams or maybe college sports is your thing, to matter where you are you can almost smell and feel the energy brewing! Now take that feeling and multiply it by 1000.This must be what it is like for the 60+ High Schools across the United States that will be playing their first home game on a new field of synthetic turf. The list of schools is a "Who's-Who's" of high school sports and the number of teams is growing by the day! When I sat down to write this blog I soon discovered that it would be an easier task to list those who "DID NOT" install a new athletic sports field this year. And I will add that those schools on the "DID NOT" list were only there because they are waiting for their own installation of artificial grass to begin!
It was yesterday that I discovered that there is something very bizarre occurring with the cost of water in the United States. As you may have noticed recently there are some very positive changes occurring in industries like synthetic grass and solar power. Changes that are happening so quickly with measured results that reaffirm our belief in a better, brighter, and more efficient tomorrow. Where companies like PG&E now purchase electricity directly from a homeowner who's solar panels store more power than he can use, or better yet, the always beautiful, always lush, synthetic lawns that made mowing and weeds a thing of the past and finally shed light on the unnecessary vanity and water wasting expense of a regular lawn. But of course the moment I begin to feel somewhat optimistic about the future I am slapped in the face with things like this... I read some things that, ever after 24 hours, I am still confused and alarmed considering the implications and how this has an impact on each and every citizen in the US.

The coach of the Argentina team was not deeply saddened by the loss, but instead accepted that Germany had won fair. Although Messi was a four-time world player, he could not carry his team to victory. Many were disappointed and expected Messi to lead his team to victory.

Isn't it amazing how a true testimonial from a professional in any field means so much more than just a person you might pass on the street. As I was watching one of the Global Syn-Turf interviews with Ottis "O.J" Anderson regarding the complexities as well as the numerous synthetic turf styles available... I realized that the need for professional input was valuable no matter what type of information it is.
The U.S. Open continues on with extremely close scores and lots of excitement. Michelle Wie took first place ending with a score of -2 in the women's series. Stacy Lewis trailed her at a score of 0 in second place but couldn't manage to catch up. The atmosphere at the U.S. Open is vibrant and full of golf talent. The courses are magnificent, demonstrating the visual beauty of the artificial grass. Wouldn't it be so luxurious to play on those putting greens?
It may seem like a small step for the Grass Master to use a Mixed Grass Ground for the FIFA World Cup of 2014, but for some it's one of excitement!
