You either use a water filter or your body is one

August 2016


A word from Richard

Hello everyone.

Here we are into August already! Stock take and tax returns are done and kids are back to school and can you believe it I even heard someone at recent networking event say Merry Christmas. Yep it will be here before we know it.

This year’s 2016 World Water Week in Stockholm will echo and follow up on the UN “Water and Jobs” theme from last year, but in the broader context of “Sustainable Growth” for this year.

We finally got a decent Saturday night to be able to have some mates and kids over to fire up the bonfire and oh boy what a cracker it was too. 10 kids running riot around the paddocks as adults drank, ate and laughed away into the early hours of Sunday morning. I think the call has gone out for another one in a month or two. Yippee.

Crickey we sure have had some chilly mornings lately haven’t we. Feeeew yesterday was about 1 degree when I got up to go to the gym and I even had ice on my windscreen so I put the car on idle with the air con cranked for 10 minutes before I left with a nice hot “Rocket Coffee” to rev me up.

Did anyone just see that US skydiver jump out of a plane with NO parachute from 25,000ft and land safely in an amazing 20 story high suspended netting??? OMG that guy has hair on his chest and beats it for sure.

I know I’ve said it before but we need reminding don’t we? Even though it is really cold at times and the air con is keeping you nice and comfortable, just remember that this is very dehydrating to our bodies and we still need to be getting adequate hydration. Otherwise you might find yourself losing concentration and yarning away at your desk.

So remember: “You either use a water filter or your body is one!” See you next time. Cheers Cheers.

Dirty to drinkable

Graphene oxide has been hailed as a veritable wonder material; when incorporated into nanocellulose foam, the lab-created substance is light, strong and flexible, conducting heat and electricity quickly and efficiently

Now, a team of engineers at Washington University in St. Louis has found a way to use graphene oxide sheets to transform dirty water into drinking water, and it could be a global game-changer.

"We hope that for countries where there is ample sunlight, such as India, you'll be able to take some dirty water, evaporate it using our material, and collect fresh water," said Srikanth Singamaneni, associate professor of mechanical engineering and materials science at the School of Engineering and Applied Science.

The new approach combines bacteria-produced cellulose and graphene oxide to form a bi-layered biofoam. A paper detailing the research is available online in Advanced Materials.

Water facts

Port of Albany, Western Australia.

This was the first port in Western Australia and was settled in 1826. Albany was Western Australia's only deep-water port for 70 years until the Fremantle Inner Harbour was opened in 1897.

The first settlers arrived in Albany in December 1826 when Major Edmund Lockyer arrived at the harbour aboard the brig Amity The port started from humble beginnings when a finger jetty was built between 1862 and 1864 in Princess Royal Harbour. The construction was extended in 1874 and fitted with a T-shaped head and gas lighting.

Dredging and land reclamation around the port area commenced in 1893, with a further five dredging operations taking place between 1901 and 1979. Albany was an important arrival point for migrants and settlers in Western Australia with over 40,000 people arriving between 1839-1925.

A closing thought


“If you do not sow in spring you will not reap in autumn”

How can anyone expect to get something they want when they don’t work for it? We must put forth effort and plant the seeds of our desires. If you want to be healthier, you must decide to eat healthy foods and change your patterns. If you want to learn more about ancient history, you must read books and continue to teach yourself new things. Our goals are on us to reach.
