How Green is Your Tech?

» A Guest Contribution by Cloud Technology Specialist Jordan Jacobs from SingleHop

Climate change is on nearly everybody’s mind, in one way or another. Becoming more aware of the effects of emissions on the environment, people are looking for “greener” ways to live, from buying local (and sustainable) food and products, traveling via lower-emission transportation methods, and building up recycling and composting programs.

There are some obvious things that help — like riding a bike to work or turning off the lights when you leave a room — but everyone tells you that stuff. As a technology company offering public and private cloud hosting services, we wanted to focus on some of the ways that everyday technology consumption like email, social media, and data storage affects your carbon footprint.

Morning Exercises

Hi Barefooters!

Fall is upon us here in Toronto and I’m trying to make the best out of the weather. As part for my daily routine, I’m setting aside some 20 to 30 minutes every day to do some light aerobic exercises and calisthenics, especially in the morning to give me a bit of energy to start the day. I’m very lucky to have a great backyard, so I can combine my exercises with some earthing – which further enhances the benefits of my exercise.

This morning, I took a video of myself doing a shortened, lighter version of my workout routine. I hope you enjoy it and find it inspirational to get out there and spend some time moving and enjoying some direct contact with Mother Earth.

This is my second project here and I’m working for an Egyptian corporation now but with a lot of the same old faces from my previous job in Egypt. Continue reading

The Best Grain-Free Homemade Pizza


I’m not sure if you have seen Food Babe’s latest post about what’s in the pizza at big chain pizza restaurants. It’s quite scary and it leaves me wondering how the FDA can get away with poisoning us.

It’s time to ditch the pizza restaurants and instead make pizza at home. After trying several different paleo pizza crusts, I finally found one that works, tastes great, and has the same texture as a “regular” gluten pie crust. I originally posted it on my blog but because it has worked so beautifully, I decided to post it here as well. Continue reading
