YES!

Yes! Yes I know how to be more persuasive after reading Yes!: 50 Scientifically Proven Ways to Be Persuasive. One of the most interesting thing I’ve learned through the book is that people often choose alternatives that are compromise choices, not the high-end or the low-end. Well this all seems pretty obvious, right? What I like about psychology is that some of the concepts the book teaches me seem pretty intuitive, but I never really know them, but I do (this sounds a little bit like an example of hindsight bias but anyways that’s not the point).

Yes, YES! I agree with you.

YES! and its 50 scientifically proven ways to be persuasive seem pretty accurate to me. It is interesting to read about what is physiologically going in our heads that leads to our actions. I must admit that some of the actions described that we do in response to postings, I didn’t want to admit to. However, after taking a step back and observing my actions, I noticed that a lot of my actions are influenced by the way something is presented and by the action of others.

Chula Vista

Chula Vista I commend you! I think it is awesome to see a city in Southern California making environmentally friendly improvements. It is the 21st century, and it is about time we start worrying about the future!
I am all for the implantation of bike lanes and making any city a biking community. I think it is fantastic to see Chula Vista encouraging biking as an alternate mode of transportation. Biking is a great way to commute and stay healthy. The more bikers on the road the better!

Sacramento

Hi Everyone!

I just wanted to point our how awesome it is that the city of Sacramento offers easy access to solar
panels and other energy efficient upgrades to its residence: http://ygrene.us/ca/sacramento/residential !!

This is not the case in most cities so I advise you to take advantage of this incredible environment, energy and money
saving opportunity!

Introducing - Michelle Chang

Hello there!

My name is Michelle and I'm a 5th year at Cal majoring in Environmental Sciences. Born and raised in San Francisco, I grew up hiking the parks and walking the beaches of California. I knew I always loved the natural environment, but it wasn't until high school that I started gaining exposure on the concept of sustainability.

Hi :)

Farewell to RAEL

A big thanks to Hazel, Betsy, Mia, Chris, the other interns, and everybody else at RAEL for an awesome summer! I picked up social media and newsletter skills and learned how to write targeted content for a specific audience. I really enjoyed the individual attention and responsiveness to personal needs, as well as the emphasis on skill-building. Getting to work from home some days was also a big plus! Thanks again to the folks at RAEL for a fun internship experience.
