Clean Cars, Dirty Energy: Canada’s Electric Car Dilemma

Before you pick up the keys to a new electric vehicle, you may want to check where you live and where you get your power. In Canada, a new report is throwing a monkey wrench into efforts of several provinces to convince residents to junk their gas guzzlers and go electric.

Airbnb Campaign Brings Attention to NYC Homeless

If you’re looking for a place to stay on your next trip to New York City, Airbnb user Jamie has a posting that sounds promising: a “Hot Bedroom w/ Semi-Private Terrace” for only $11. But on closer inspection of the post and accompanying photo, it appears Jamie’s “hot bedroom” is actually the sidewalk under the awning of a Manhattan office building, and Jamie is holding a cardboard sign that reads, “Homeless. Need Money.” This fake Airbnb posting is part of an innovative campaign to raise awareness about the Big Apple’s growing homeless population on the popular housing-sharing platform.
