Portrait of Success: Art Company Offers Hope to Homeless and Disabled Artists

Jan 18, 2017
As an 18-year-old living in Boston, I embarked on a unique and life-changing mission. After securing a grant from Harvard University to create art groups in homeless shelters, I was immediately struck by the incredible artistic talent I saw among some of the people I met. Unfortunately, their interesting works of art had no place for display, and so they would sit in storage collecting dust. I learned that thousands of art groups around the country were in place, but there was no collective space to sell the art.

Brainstorming with my brother, Spencer, we came up with the idea of becoming brokers for artists across the country – selling their original art, but also creating prints and other products for sale. It was an idea that we knew would fulfill us personally and professionally, but more importantly give these artists a sense of purpose as well as an income.

FedEx Fuel Option

New Fuel Option Means Cleaner Truck Routes

Jan 10, 2017

Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) has a name that sounds like it could be a complex scientific concept, but it’s really not that complicated: CNG is primarily methane gas stored at high pressure. That’s it.

Why do we care?

We care because CNG can be used in the same place as gasoline, diesel, or propane, but is generally cleaner and helps diversify the fuel supply.

It’s pretty simple to generate – made by compressing normal natural gas to less than 1% of the volume it occupies at normal atmospheric pressure. CNG burns more cleanly than diesel, producing lower CO2 emissions, and almost all of the natural gas in the United States is homegrown, not imported.

Natural gas can be renewable, with some of it even generated by landfills.
