Happy Earth Day everyone!! Here at Fast Trak we are excited to be able to celebrate our favorite planet! In honor of Earth day we have 10 great tips to help you be more eco-friendly!

1.  Turn off electronics (like TVs and computers) at night and when your not home!

2. Hang your clothes dry!

3. Go vegetarian for a day! One pound of beef can use over 2,000 gallons of water to make!

4. Turn the water off while you brush your teeth!

5. Buy local! Transporting food creates a lot of pollution, and buying local will help businesses in your community!

6. Go to a car wash, they’re more efficient with water than doing it yourself!

7. Pay bills online and get electronic statements!

8.  Use rechargeable batteries!

9. Carpool to work!

10. Don’t preheat the oven! Unless you’re making bread or pastries it’s not necessary and will save energy!

You’ve been waiting for it all week and it’s finally here, happy fiber optic Friday everyone! Here’s some things you probably didn’t know about fiber optics to kick off your weekend!

1. Fiber optics aren’t influenced by weather, wow! Since they carry light instead of electricity they are not affected by changes in temperature and weather patterns.

2. Having fiber optic services adds roughly $5,000 to the estimated price of a house. Since fiber optics aren’t readily available all over the country, they could help you gain some extra cash when you sell your house!

3. China requires all new housing developments to have fiber optic connections!

4. The military uses fiber optics in their harshest areas so that they get the most reliable communication

Fiber Optics Saving Lives??!

The head of robotic surgery at Mt. Sinai Medical Center, Dr. David Samadi, is using fiber optics to save lives!! He uses the technology to get better accuracy when removing cancerous cells. According to Dr. Samadi nothing is quite as accurate as fiber optics. Fiber optics is saving the day once again! Watch the video below for more details about the incredible work being done in New York by Dr. Samadi!

Incredible Fiber-Optic Demonstration!

Ever wondered how light travels through fiber optics?! When light enters the core it continues to reflect off the mirror-like walls to create the wavelengths like the ones shown above. Depending on the angle the light is pointed, it will create thicker or thinner waves. Check out the incredible demonstration above!

All Aboard Dallas!

It is that time of year again! Fast Trak had its quarterly trip to Dallas. Some of the top leaders here in our office; Craig, Caitlin, Will, and Rigoberto got the chance to network with some of the best leaders here in our industry across the country. With the knowledge they have gained and shared when they returned, Fast Trak hopes to beat its own personal records by many within the next month or so.
