My kind of life. I have to add some great music, high spirits and some waters around.
STATE OF ART ENERGY SYSTEM IN THE SHADOW OF MATTERHORN
A swiss futuristic eco hut is almost good to go with final preparations being made for a spring opening.
"90 per cent of its electricity coming from the sun thanks to an ultra-modern photovoltaic system integrated into the southern facade. The remaining ten per cent is provided by a rapeseed oil system to meet peak demand. During the summer months, water from melting glaciers will be collected and stored in a large reservoir 40 meters above the hut."

The film ``Pi'' is a study in madness and its partner, genius. A tortured, driven man believes (1) that mathematics is the language of the universe, (2) nature can be expressed in numbers, and (3) there are patterns everywhere in nature. If he can find the patterns, if he can find the key to the chaos, then he can predict anything--the stock market, for example. If the man is right, the mystery of existence is unlocked. If he is wrong, the inside of his brain begins to resemble a jammed stock ticker.
