A word from Richard

Hello everyone. Crickey October already!!! Spring is in the air and Summer is on its way.

September seemed to be a slow month for us, although we still had continued growth. How was the month for you. As it starts to heat up we’re gearing up for another massive crazy 6 month period over the Summer months. I still think the right person will come along at the right time to help us out over this busy period with some service work. They will love the work as everyone loves our services, it’s great to always be appreciated.

Well October is a big month for us Librans as there seems to be so many of us. So Happy Birthday to us all. Our hotshot service technician Derek, will celebrate another Year on the right side of the grass on October 10 and I get to have a weekend for my Birthday this year on the 11th. Fantastic and Yippee.

Getting water from fog

Shore bird's beak inspires research on water collection.

A University of Texas Arlington engineering professor and his doctoral student have designed a device based on a shore-bird's beak that can accumulate water collected from fog and dew.

The device could provide water in drought-stricken areas of the world or deserts around the globe. Xin Heng, a doctoral student in Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering, and Cheng Luo, MAE professor, have made a device that can use fog and dew to collect water.

The idea began when Heng saw an article that explained the physical mechanism shorebirds use to collect their food -- driving food sources into their throats by opening and closing their beaks. Luo said that inspired the team to try to replicate the natural beak in the lab.

"We wanted to see if we could do that first," Luo said. "When we made the artificial beaks, we saw that multiple water drops were transported by narrow, beak-like glass plates. That made us think of whether we could harvest the water from fog and dew."

Their experiments were successful. They found out they could harvest about four tablespoons of water in a couple of hours from glass plates that were about 26 centimeters long by 10 centimeters wide.

Water facts

Hovercraft

A hovercraft, also known as an air-cushion vehicle or ACV, is a craft capable of travelling over land, water, mud or ice and other surfaces. Hovercraft are hybrid vessels operated by a pilot as an aircraft rather than a captain as a marine vessel.

Hovercraft use blowers to produce a large volume of air below the hull that is slightly above atmospheric pressure. The pressure difference between the higher pressure air below the hull and lower pressure ambient air above it produces lift, which causes the hull to float above the running surface. For stability reasons, the air is typically blown through slots or holes around the outside of a disk or oval shaped platform, giving most hovercraft a characteristic rounded-rectangle shape. Typically this cushion is contained within a flexible "skirt", which allows the vehicle to travel over small obstructions without damage.

The first practical design for hovercraft derived from a British invention in the 1950s to 1960s. They are now used throughout the world as specialised transports in disaster relief, coastguard, military and survey applications as well as for sport or passenger service. Very large versions have been used to transport hundreds of people and vehicles across the English Channel whilst others have military applications used to transport tanks, soldiers and large equipment in hostile environments and terrain.

Although now a generic term for the type of craft, the name Hovercraft itself was a trademark owned by Saunders-Roe (later British Hovercraft Corporation (BHC), then Westland), hence other manufacturers use of alternative names to describe the vehicles.

Health Tip

The importance of keeping your body well hydrated!

The human body is approximately 65 – 70 % water, so it’s vitally important that we drink enough water to fully hydrate all our trillions of cells to enable them to function correctly.

Dehydration increases inflammation in the body and, since the vast majority of chronic diseases such as high blood pressure, heart problems, high cholesterol, arthritis, diabetes and so on, are aggravated or caused by chronic inflammation, it makes good sense to do some simple things to reduce those inflammatory processes. Drinking water, the Essence of Life, is one such thing.

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
