North Devon Web belongs to a network of websites that host in a green way.

North Devon Web is helping to prevent the release of 2,660 metric tons of carbon dioxide from entering the atmosphere each year by hosting on ‘Green Servers’ – as a result, the network’s energy efficiency is equivalent to planting approximately 2,390 acres of trees, not driving 6.1 million miles, or removing 510 cars from the road.
The web hosting industry has a negative impact on the environment due to the energy hungry servers that are used to keep the Internet fueled. We can all try to limit the impact where possible and hosting on a green server is a step in the right direction. More and more people are buying from carbon ethical companies – tackling climate change is an important criteria.
The websites we host are powered by 100% wind energy.
The machines hosting our main site site and e-mail are fully eco-friendly! As energy awareness continues to grow, people are not just looking to make lifestyle adjustments, they want to make environmentally responsible decisions, power by renewable energy!
Contact North Devon Web for details on how to make your business website more in tune with today’s responsible business (moral and environmental) obligations.

Is a new horizon emerging as the sun sets on the UK recession?

The number of people out of work in Britain has fallen slightly to 2.61million, official figures revealed today. But the Government was hit with a mixed bag of data today as it emerged the number if benefit claimants has actually risen. The jobless total dropped 51,000 in the quarter to April, while the number of people claiming jobseeker’s allowance in May rose by 8,100 to 1.6 million, ending two months of declines.

The #poverty business

Poverty is the state of one who lacks a certain amount of material possessions or money. Absolute poverty or destitution refers to the one who lacks basic human needs, which commonly includes clean and fresh water, nutrition, health care, education, clothing and shelter.

‘Oxfam is calling for an increase in the minimum wage to protect low income workers from dropping below the poverty line.

The charity says that the rising cost of living, combined with falling wages, and cuts to benefits, is creating the “perfect storm” for low paid workers. A report published by the charity today shows six out of ten working-age adults living in poverty come from working households.’

From Yahoo News

There is poverty in the UK but there is still a lot of money out there and businesses that deal in high end goods and travel are still booming – although several companies who service this sector have ‘gone to the wall’.

Starting up a new business is a combination of having hope, believing in yourself and your abilities, understanding your product or service, realizing there is a business opportunity but above all FEAR is there niggling in the back of your mind.

To be scared about taking a giant step towards creating a new business is probably the most important feeling you can use to your advantage – to take your ideas forward. Being afraid means you are asking all the right questions in your head.

‘In the last six months, some 62pc of adults in the UK gave time or money to causes they care about. The generosity of the British public has been demonstrated following the death of Claire Squires, 31, in Sunday’s London Marathon. She had run the race in aid of the Samaritans, and the fund she initially set up has now attracted more than £600,000 of donations.’

Lalique Art Deco glasswork on the Orient Express

The Orient Express

Dining Car 4141 named ‘Côte d’Azur’ was built in 1929 as a first class Pullman and was decorated by René Lalique who in the 1920s became famous for his Art Deco glass work. He was also responsible for the glass and elegant coloured columns which filled the dining room and “grand salon” of the SS Normandie and the interior fittings, cross, screens, reredos and font of St. Matthew’s Church at Millbrook in Jersey – referred to as “Lalique’s Glass Church”.

Entrepreneurs sometimes become blind to the obvious

 Healthy Websites

These could be your salad days…

The ability to grow an idea into a business need not be such a difficult task. Entrepreneurs sometimes become blind to the obvious, convinced that their vision is the only possible route towards success. The entrepreneur’s inability to seek help and let go of their creation is sometimes the reason why they fail, avoiding or dismissing processes which offer better methods and practices. In other words they do not seek advice or they do not take advice – which may provided them the tools and techniques that could noticeably improve efficiency or growth, which in turn can lead to faster return on investment and increased profits.
