A word from Richard

Hello everyone.

Happy days indeed. By the time this Newsletter lands on your inbox my family and I will be in New Zealand enjoying a well deserved holiday. Thanks to our house-sitters Ron and Marea for staying at our place to take care of all the animals whilst we’re away. That’s comforting.

I’m feeling pretty proud to have built a solid business with the best staff one could ever wish for and I know they’ll do a fantastic job running the show while we’re away.

This month from the 20th to the 26th is national water week. This week aims to cultivate community understanding of water issues in Australia. “National Water Week is dedicated to raise community awareness about current and future water issues and to encourage the community to take action to protect our vital water sources. It's also a celebration of water achievements in painting a sustainable future for generations to come.” Water is an integral part of life on planet Earth; it is up to us to keep it clean and free from contaminates, not just for ourselves, or our children or our children's children but for every living creature on our blue planet.

So stay tuned, enjoy the Newsletter and I’ll see you all next time and remember, If You’re Not Using A Water Filter, Your Body Is One!!!

Controlling Wettability

'Sticky Tape' for Water Droplets Mimics Rose Petal

Sep. 18, 2013 — A new nanostructured material with applications that could include reducing condensation in airplane cabins and enabling certain medical tests without the need for high tech laboratories has been developed by researchers at the University of Sydney.

"The newly discovered material uses raspberry particles -- so-called because of their appearance -- which can trap tiny water droplets and prevent them from rolling off surfaces, even when that surface is turned upside down," said Dr Andrew Telford from the University's School of Chemistry and lead author of the research recently published in the journal, Chemistry of Materials.

The ability to immobilise very small droplets on a surface is, according to Dr Telford, a significant achievement with innumerable potential applications.Raspberry particles mimic the surface structure of some rose petals. "Water droplets bead up in a spherical shape on top of rose petals," Dr Telford said. "This is a sign the flower is highly water repellent."

The reasons for this are complex and largely due to the special structure of the rose petal's surface. The research team replicated the rose petal by assembling raspberry particles in the lab using spherical micro- and nanoparticles. The result is that water droplets bead up when placed on films of the raspberry particles and they're not able to drip down from it, even when turned upside down.

"Raspberry particle films can be described as sticky tape for water droplets," Dr Telford said. This could be useful in preventing condensation issues in airplane cabins. It could also help rapidly process simple medical tests on free-standing droplets, with the potential for very high turnover of tests with inexpensive equipment and in remote areas.

Water facts

Margaret River, in the Kimberley region of Western Australia.

The headwaters of the river rise in the King Leopold Range West of Halls Creek and flows in a Westerly direction until it merges with the Fitzroy River of which it is a tributary. The junction of the two rivers is close to Fitzroy Crossing.

The river was named in 1879 by the explorer Alexander Forrest, after Margaret Elvire Forrest, the wife of his brother and Western Australian Premier, John Forrest, during an expedition in the Kimberley area.

Margaret River has 15 tributaries including; the Mary, Gliddon, O'Donnell, Leopold, Louisa River's also Station, Dead Horse, Gidgia and Boab Creek's.

Health Tip

This month's health tip brought to you by "Epic Lifestyles" Family Health Club and Indoor Recreation Facility

Hydration and Weight Loss

Water and hydration plays an integral part in how an individual will lose weight. In fact, it is one of the biggest secrets of weight loss that is not well-publicized or well known. Can you guess why? Water is free!

Our bodies are made out of 60% water. Any fluctuation in our hydration can change the numbers on the bathroom scale. In fact, many of today's bodybuilders who participate in competitions become purposefully dehydrated in the hours before the competition in order to make their muscles appear more defined.

But water also plays other roles. For instance, by maintaining adequate hydration you actually decrease the amount of fluid retention that your body experiences. This means that with just a slight amount of dehydration your body starts to hang onto more water and you begin to feel bloated. By drinking at least 3 litres of water per day your body will not hang onto extra fluid and you will excrete the proper amount of fluid.

Another benefit to drinking water is that it drastically decreases your appetite. An interesting detail about body metabolism is that the first thing an individual will feel when they start to become slightly dehydrated is actually hunger and not thirst. Once an individual begins to feel thirsty they are well into a negative water balance in their body. This is why we should all be drinking water before we feel thirsty and not waiting until we feel thirsty.

By maintaining adequate hydration we also increase the amount of fat used for energy in the body and we improve the ability of our liver and kidneys to function. One duty of the liver is to assist in the filtration system of the blood, which can only be done adequately when there is plenty of water to work with. When the kidneys are deprived of fluid the liver has to increase the amount of work it does which lowers total productivity. Believe it or not, this sets the body up to store more calories as fat.

Customer testimonial

LG Accounting Solutions

To Richard and the crew at West Coast Waterfilter Man.

Sincere thanks to you for the professional and effortless service you provided us.

Our initial enquiry of our requirements was met with Richards’s recommendations to a range of products suitable for our needs. Once we decided on the product their tradesman Troy came to our office for the installation…. He was quick and efficient and even cleaned up after himself. Very impressed!

The water filter system works a treat and tastes fantastic, an amazing difference to what we were drinking before.

Thanks again from the team at LG Accounting Solutions
