On July 18th, 2019, New York State implemented The Climate Leadership and Communities Protection Act (Climate Act). The Climate Act requires New York State to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 40 percent by 2030, 100 percent carbon-free electricity by 2040 (moving toward Wind Energy), and reach Net Zero-emission by 2050. In many ways, the NYS Climate Act is similar to California’s Climate Act, which has continued to fail many Californians because of constant electricity blackouts, forest fires, an unreliable grid, and the rising electricity (Shellenberger 2020). Hence, there is skepticism about the NYS Climate Act functioning. As you can see, NYS policymakers must take California as an example of what they shouldn’t do. NYS’s path to success is to upgrade power grids and use a combination of renewable energy and other more reliable energy sources (ex. nuclear power plants) to power NYS.

The Apple Pencil 2nd Generation

Since I began using the iPad Pro with the Apple Pencil, I’ve said goodbye to buying notebooks. Using the Apple Pencil and iPad Pro together makes note-taking, drawing, and marking up documents intuitive and straightforward.

The most notable feature about the Apple Pencil 2nd generation is that it can charge wirelessly on the iPad Pro. Moreover, I have never experienced lag while drawing or note-taking with the Apple Pencil, and the palm recognition feature is excellent on the iPad Pro. …
