    live green or greenly

    Hello, Teachers.

    On the cover of the May 19 issue of Business Week, I saw this sentence:
    GM's challenge: live green or die.
    But I could not find 'green' as a adverb in all my dictionaries. Should it be 'live greenly'?

    BTW: Have I to add 'the' before the name of a magnize such as Business Week? What about the name of a newspaper?

    Thank you in advance.

    Enydia ^_^

    Hi Enydia,

    GM's challenge: live green or die.

    "Green" has become a word that means "in an manner that is friendly to the environment."

    There is also the well-known (in the US) motto of the state of New Hampshire, "Live Free or Die," which this is making a play on.

    BTW: Have I to add 'the' before the name of a magnize such as Business Week? What about the name of a newspaper?

    It depends on the name of the publicaiton. No for Business Week, because its name is simply Business Week, but yes for The Wal Street Journal, because it's name is The Wall Street Journal.
