A wheel of parmesan cheese can cost over $1,000. A single wheel takes at least one year to age, 131 gallons of milk to make, and it can only be made in a restricted area in northern Italy, in the region of Emilia Romagna. We visited a dairy in Parma, Italy to find out how the cheese is made and why it is so expensive. ------------------------------------------------------ #ParmesanCheese #Italy #FoodInsider INSIDER is great journalism about what passionate people actually want to know.

This is a green home built in 2009 in Falmouth , Maine. The design uses traditional, simple forms with thoughtfully placed windows and overhangs to take advantage of the views and to create a livable, open and modest plan. The home is constructed with double-thick walls, triple glazed windows, and a well-insulated, radiant slab, including innovative detailing throughout. The increased level of performance created by this building system, along with solar tubes on the roof, will allow the occupants to significantly downsize their mechanical system and reduce their dependence on fossil fuels at a cost of less than $175 per square foot (excluding garage/porch). Contact the Architect at http://www.kaplanthompson.com/ or the builder at http://www.kolbertbuilding.com/ for specific questions about the project.
This amazing small home has been built using two 40ft high cube shipping containers, slightly of-set from one another to create a stunning, off-the-grid family home. Become a Living Big Patron: https://www.patreon.com/livingbig Feeling inspired to downsize after watching tiny home and small house design videos online, this couple decided to take the plunge into designing and building a shipping container home for their family to reduce their expenses and be able to dedicate more time to the things that really matter. You can find our more about this tiny home on our website: http://www.livingbiginatinyhouse.com/off-grid-twin-40ft-shipping-container-home/ This off-grid container home is completely solar powered, with a huge solar array producing more than enough power for the small house. It's water is collected from a nearby bore.

As you know, President Obama celebrated Earth Day this week by visiting the Florida Everglades where he spoke about the threat that climate change poses to our economy and to the world, in the latest part of his effort to call attention to act on the threat of climate change. The President also announced how we're investing millions in new funding to protect our parks, as well as new actions the Department of Agriculture will take in partnership with farmers, ranchers and forest land owners to reduce net greenhouse gas emissions. While in Florida the President sat down with Bill Nye the Science Guy in the Everglades to discuss climate change, conservation, and science education in America.
Bill Nye, the Science Guy, joins Lunch Break to discusses his own home to show how energy-efficient houses save both money and the environment. Photo: Michal Czerwonka for The Wall Street Journal.
