30 December 2010:
Melbourne PR man Phil Quin, involved quite a while back in New Zealand politics and more recently an advisor to 2 Australian Labor politicians, writer of the Irredeemable blog, has contributed 2 thought-provoking columns to Business Spectator this month on the US 2012 presidential election prospects. The more intriguing of them is the second, setting out 5 grounds for Republican optimism & Democrat nervousness – 5 topics, each with the ability to turn the favouritism suddenly.
The Daily Reckoning Australia has finished the year by asking its contributors (all writers of financial newsletters) for their best performing investment idea of the year. Oh – and how to embarrass an expert – their worst performer as well, plus a look into 2011. In some detail. This crew spends a lot of time writing about long-term investment strategies, brought down to specific investments.

The US Department of Energy, through its Energy Efficient & Renewable Energy division, says it “encourages using new technologies & better building practices to improve energy efficiency. The building energy codes programme works with the ICC, ASHRAE (the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating & Air Conditioning Engineers), IESNA (the Illuminating Engineering Society of North America), American Institute of Architects, the building industry and state & local officials to develop & promote more stringent & easy-to-understand building energy codes and to assess potential code barriers to new energy-efficient technologies.”
