Tsunami Dog: Family pet found alive after being lost at sea for 3 weeks?

Japanese Tsunami Dog Rescue!

Family pet found alive after floating on debris alone for three weeks while lost at sea?

[Apr. 2]

When you think about charity after a natural disaster, typically the first thought that comes to mind is humanitarian aid. Among the hoards of green celebrities also assisting with tsunami and earthquake relief in Japan — rocker Katy Perry has donated proceeds from glowsticks she is selling on her current tour, Gwen Stefani and pet friendly Oscar-winner Sandra Bullock each have donated $1 million to the relief efforts in Japan. Hollywood stars who are able to donate large sums of money whenever a disaster strikes are heroes in their own right, but there are other types of hero figures the work can and should admire as well. For instance, the members of the Coast Guard and Red Cross rescuers have become green celebrities in their own rights, working tirelessly to find any survivors even though Japan has already survived the difficult three weeks since the devastating earthquake and subsequent tsunami struck the island nation in March of 2011. And there are others — like the family pets who have been able to endure harsh conditions and to survive despite the loss of human companionship, care, or supervision. Like the Tsunami dog who was just rescued off the coast of Japan, where it has been floating alone on debris while trying to keep itself alive the past three weeks.

Green Homes: 90 foot New York apartment makes tenant a celebrity?

90 foot New York apartment makes tenant a celebrity?

[Apr. 2]

What do you do when you’re a poor writer, perhaps a wannabe green celebrity, and you live in Manhattan? The big city is not necessarily known for its green lifestyle except to superstars like Alec Baldwin, Harrison Ford, and Catherine Zeta-Jones. And even these green celebrity superstars have recently listed homes in New York for sale. Feeling the crunch perhaps?

In spite of the odds, writer Felice Cohen decided she wanted to live in Manhattan — Upper West Side Manhattan, in fact. But she didn’t have the $3,600 a month that a rental property in Manhattan typically costs. So, with the help of a friend, she made the best of it, landing a 90 square foot (12×7) microstudio for just over $700 a month.

In a video she has made, Felice Cohen, who also touts herself as a professional organizer, knows how to go green when it comes to making the most out of such a small place. This aspiring (and inspiring!) green celebrity has just a combination desk and shelf lining one wall, cleverly packed with plastic containers housing all her goodies, including a mini-refrigerator, a toaster oven (where she keeps her bananas), and the computer she writes from. Cabinet space above and below hold her kitchenware, which includes a hot pot and her dishes and utensils, since she the microstudio has no kitchen.

GoDaddy CEO shoots elephants to make viral videos?

[Apr. 1]

Have you heard this dark green news yet about the Go Daddy CEO hunting elephants for sport? Protestors are not yet upset with racing legend and television commercial celebrity Danica Patrick for her role as a GoDaddy girl. Danica Patrick, who is an Indianapolis 500 star the first woman to win an Indy race in the 2008 Indy Japan 300. She currently drives the GoDaddy car for Andretti Autosport. She had nothing to do with Parsons’ elephant hunt. Nor are people referencing The Biggest Loser reality star and celebrity health and fitness trainer, Jillian Michaels, who is known for her GoDaddy commercial appearance as the latest GoDaddy girl for the 2011 Superbowl. She remarked on her Facebook page that a non-televised and revealing picture of her hidden only by a GoDaddy logo was “tragic.” But CEO of GoDaddy, Bob Parsons, has come under fire for a viral video he released last month, which details his participation in killing a bull elephant in Zimbabwe, Africa. The viral video shows Bob Parsons firing the fatal shot. While only one bull elephant was killed in the hunt, the viral video has taken the internet by storm, and he is lacking in green celebrity points according to many.
