Next time you need to write a long email message or some other document, or maybe a letter, try running the text past Hemingway before you send it. Not Ernest, of course, but the free web-based text analysis tool that shares his name. Hemingway checks your text, tells you what reading level it scores, and gives you tips on how to improve your writing. In the example below, for example, it suggests changing "all of" to a simpler "all". Not all of its suggestions are as sensible, but it's still a fun exercise, especially with the kids' homework. http://www.techsupportalert.com/content...

Gizmo's Freeware: Compose Music Directly On Your PC. No Paper Required
Gizmo's Freeware: Top selections /////////////////////////////////////////// Compose Music Directly On Your PC. No Paper Required Posted: 15 Apr 2014 03:04 AM PDT http://feedproxy.google.com/~r... Once upon a time, writing music involved the use of music notation paper (with those familiar 5 lines), and lots of pencils and erasers. Nowadays, you can do it much more easily on a computer, using software that's really just a musical version of a word processor. Start with an empty sheet of notation paper, then drag notes onto the page at the appropriate point. You can move the notes around with the mouse if you make a mistake, and you can hear your work in progress at any time just by pressing the Play button. If you've never tried writing music this way, or indeed if you've never tried writing music at all, Forte 5 is a well-known notation software product for Windows which... more...

Ontario Completely Off Coal - http://www.ecogeek.org/prevent...
The Canadian province of Ontario has officially shut down its last coal burning power plant. Power for the province now comes from "emission-free electricity sources like wind, solar, nuclear and hydropower, along with lower-emission electricity sources like natural gas and biomass." The province had set a target of the end of 2014 to end its use of coal to generate electricity. The Thunder Bay Generating Station was the last coal fueled power plant in the province. Now that it has burned the last of its coal supply, the plant will be converted to a biomass-fueled power plant. image: CC 2.0 by Kyle MacKenzie Hat tip to @TomMatzzie

CETO Produces Wave Power and Freshwater - http://www.ecogeek.org/tidal-a...
A new, grid-tied offshore wave energy project called CETO is being readied off the west coast of Australia, near Perth. Carnegie Wave Energy is installing what is called the "first operating wave energy array scheme in the world." The installation will consist of three submerged buoys 11 meters (36 feet) in diameter, which will be anchored offshore. The buoys will create high pressure water which will be pumped to an onshore generating station to produce electricity. In addition to producing power, the CETO technology incorporates an interesting synergy - it is also used to provide fresh water. The system provides for more efficient desalination of seawater, since the water is already being pumped onshore from the buoys. Once it has powered the turbines, some of the water can be diverted into conventional desalination equipment. For regions in need of water desalination, the combination is ideal, and additional energy is not required for pumping water in from the sea. The submerged...

Copenhagen Wheel Hits the Streets - http://www.ecogeek.org/human-p...
A few years back, the 'Copenhagen Wheel' was one of a few innovations in cycling that were being proposed to try to make bicycle commuting easier. While it was just a concept in 2010, it is now a real product, with pre-orders being offered by manufacturer Superpedestrian. The Copenhagen Wheel is a combination battery and motor that is installed on a Single Speed or 9/10 Speed Free Hub bicycle, converting it into an electric bike with a range of up to 50 km (31 mi) and a top speed of 25 mph (in the US; 25 km/h in the EU). It also provides regenerative braking and Bluetooth connectivity and iOS and Android integration. For now, Superpedestrian is only selling the Copenhagen Wheel alone, so you'll need to provide your own bike to mount it on. However, the company says that they will soon be selling bikes already equipped with the Copenhagen Wheel. The early-bird pricing for the Copenhagen Wheel is $699 (regular price will be $799 according to the website). Also previously on EcoGeek:...
