Green IT in Practice

by Gary Hird

Organisations are becoming increasingly concerned about climate change, and are looking for ways to reduce their environmental impact. A brand with a genuine commitment to the green agenda will be more valued by its customers, and cutting energy consumption means that your business can also cut costs. The IT department has a vital role to play in minimising the carbon footprint of your organisation. Green IT in Practice, Second edition provides guidance on how to implement a Green IT programme. It will help you to formulate a Green IT policy, curb demand for data storage capacity, and lower the electricity consumption of the datacentre. A specific chapter looks at how server and desktop virtualisation can enable your business to save energy and space. Based on his first-hand experience of successfully implementing Green IT initiatives for the John Lewis Partnership, the author describes the specific problems that JLP confronted, and explains the solutions that he found for them. He gives a fascinating account of how Green IT has enabled one of Britain's best-loved companies to make significant improvements in efficiency. This second edition has been updated to reflect the progress that JLP's Green IT programme has made since 2008. The author shows how IT can be harnessed to help reduce carbon emissions across the whole organisation, pointing to the success of IT initiatives at Waitrose in improving demand forecasting and reducing food miles.

And home is almost as dangerous as the war they've just left. The king is missing. The country is in turmoil. And some men would do anything for power. What will two brothers risk for the woman they both love and the king they have both sworn to protect and serve? In the second book of the de Granville trilogy, Will and Gavin find their family -- and all of England -- in serious peril.

When the stranger mysteriously reappears, with specific demands for reparation, the Graffes' circle of idiosyncratic family and friends is disrupted--for the demands are bizarre, intrusive, and ultimately fatal.

Suddenly widowed and penniless Judy is forced to move into her sister's vacation cabin on Green Lake. But instead of quiet and solitude, she finds herself immersed in a world of depravity, blackmail and--ultimately--murder. And what should she think of the tall and taciturn Native American who lives next door? From one of the most sophisticated novelists and utilizing the explosive mating of the terrifying and the deceptively prosaic, comes this hair-raising story of a most unlikely couple, who find themselves dangerously alone in a deceptively pleasant-seeming recreational community. Engrossing light book for the beach or a relaxing weekend.

She was past caring.Johnny Liddell cared, though. The girl was his client and it didn't make sense. Why would she strip, pile her clothes neatly on the pier, and then take the plunge?A waste, Liddell thought mournfully. A great waste.Then he cheered up.

Green Light for Murder

by Heywood Gould

A mad director, off his meds, is making a movie about how he murders the producers who ruined his career. The movie is in his mind. The murders are real. Tommy Veasy, a pot-smoking homicide detective--our hero--who writes poetry to help him solve cases and ward off despair, thinks he sees a pattern in these seemingly accidental deaths. His colleagues think he's being dramatic. But the bodies keep piling up. The staff of a syndicated TV show in its tenth year, formerly an international hit but now only being aired in Montenegro and Botswana, worries about how they will maintain their Hollywood lifestyles when they become unemployable. How will the producer finance his two-hooker-a-weekend habit? How will the staff writer pay private school tuition, an underwater mortgage, tennis club dues, the housekeeper, the gardener, cable TV bills, the couples' therapist, et al.? Not a big problem: the mad director has planted a bomb in the office phone and is frantically trying to set it off. And meanwhile, a home invader keeps invading the wrong homes, to everyone's perplexity. In other words: it's just another day in paradise.

Green Like God

by Jonathan Merritt

In GREEN LIKE GOD, Jonathan Merritt gently and insightfully observes that the bible has a lot to say about environmental problems like unclean water, material waste, over consumption, air pollution, and global warming. In fact, Jonathan writes that "in the book of Genesis, God went green and never looked back." Relying heavily on scripture, Jonathan gives the case for green living, but not because it's trendy and hip. Rather, it's part of living rightly as a believer. It's an act of obedience to our Creator-God.GREEN LIKE GOD is at once practical, prescriptive, and conversational in tone. The author looks at a number of trends with tips to help the reader wade into the world of creation care living. An appendix includes suggestions of things we can do. In addition, the book includes interviews with everyday Christians to tell the story of the journey to environmental stewardship among people of faith.This is the book that Christians are longing for and need today. Written for a new generation of Christians who are struggling with how to deal with the important issue of creation-care and green living, GREEN LIKE GOD is both highly relevant and theologically sound. It will have a profound impact on how Christians live and interact with the world today.
