Tinker Bell in the Department of Energy and Ad Council Save Energy CampaignIn a nationwide effort to reduce energy consumption, the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) and The Advertising Council launched a new series of public service announcements (PSAs) designed to inspire today’s youth and their parents with ways to establish positive energy efficiency practices.

Energy use is on the rise around the world. By 2030, global energy demand is expected to increase 50 percent above 2005 levels, with electricity demand alone in the U.S. projected to rise 29 percent over the same period. Families can help reduce the demand, by using less and becoming more energy efficient.

Disney’s Real ‘Prince’ of Persia is Controversial Blackwater’s Founder Says Report

Total Intelligence Solutions and the Terrorism Research Center (TRC), companies owned by Blackwater founder Erik Prince, were contracted by several U.S. Corporations including The Walt Disney Company, according to a recent report by The Nation‘s Jeremy Scahill.

According to the report, which cites Blackwater internal documents:

‘The Walt Disney Company hired Total Intelligence and TRC to do a “threat assessment” for potential film shoot locations in Morocco, with former CIA officials [Cofer] Black and [Robert] Richer reaching out to their former Moroccan intel counterparts for information. The job provided a “good chance to impress Disney,” one company executive wrote. How impressed Disney was is not clear; in 2009 the company paid Total Intelligence just $24,000.’
