A word from Richard

Hello everyone

March-ing along now as Summer ends and just like that it will be Winter again. It’s as if we only get two seasons. Summer and Winter. I’d much prefer if the weather decided to stay in Spring time.

Crickey February flew past, but I got a sneaky relaxing and romantic few days away at Karri Valley Resort. I highly recommend the place for a stay. We loved it.

I’ll be staying on here for some months more yet as developers have had to punch out the due diligence period to end of June. Oh well more time for me to enjoy the lifestyle here on the land. I’m quite enjoying the practicing of semi-retirement waiting on the deal to go through. Patience as they say, all good things come to those who wait.

Business has been very busy and new clients keep coming to us with ease. Where from? Well, many are coming from past networking I’ve done. Many come through from our website presence. Always new sales come in when our Newsletter goes out. Our fully logo’d vans even draw the attention and so many more Google us and always receive fantastic advice that turns to sales. Existing clients wouldn’t go anywhere else and why they are V.I.P. We love it and why I suggest as many avenues as you can to draw attention and sales your way. Networking was always one of the cheapest and fun forms of marketing and advertising. So, get out amongst it and keep positive and set goals.

Time for some hydration. You either use a water filter or your body is one. Stay well and bye for now.

Seawater split to produce 'green' hydrogen

Researchers have successfully split seawater without pre-treatment to produce green hydrogen

The international team was led by the University of Adelaide's Professor Shizhang Qiao and Associate Professor Yao Zheng from the School of Chemical Engineering. "We have split natural seawater into oxygen and hydrogen with nearly 100 per cent efficiency, to produce green hydrogen by electrolysis, using a non-precious and cheap catalyst in a commercial electrolyser," said Professor Qiao. A typical non-precious catalyst is cobalt oxide with chromium oxide on its surface. "We used seawater as a feedstock without the need for any pre-treatment processes like reverse osmosis desolation, purification, or alkalisation," said Associate Professor Zheng. "The performance of a commercial electrolyser with our catalysts running in seawater is close to the performance of platinum/iridium catalysts running in a feedstock of highly purified deionised water. The team published their research in the journal Nature Energy.

Water facts

Hogwarts explanation on why we need to filter water.

Ah, water filters, a crucial aspect of modern life, much like magic is in the wizarding world of Harry Potter! You see, just as dark creatures and harmful spells can contaminate and make the wizarding world's water sources dangerous, so too can impurities and pollutants taint our own water supply. Just as Alohomora unlocks doors, water filters act as the "Alohomora" to pure, clean drinking water by removing any unwanted substances, such as lead, chlorine, and bacteria, that could harm us. And much like how a wizard may use a protective charm like Protego to shield themselves from danger, water filters protect us from consuming harmful substances, keeping us healthy and safe, like a Protego charm shields a wizard. So, you see, water filters are like the magical solution to ensure you are not only hydrated, but hydrated with the purest and safest water possible, much like a wizard would only drink water from a goblet enchanted with purifying magic. Don't leave your health to chance, invest in a water filter, and experience the pure and refreshing taste of water as if it were enchanted by the magic of the wizarding world.

Health tip

Health tips for a hot Autumn

1) Get enough vitamin D. As the days become shorter, natural light can lead to a lack of vitamin D. Try to get outside in the sunlight for 15 minutes per day to get your fill.

2) Take a brisk walk. If you tend to be really active in summer months, the cooler fall temps might keep you indoors more. Schedule a quick walk at lunchtime to get fresh air and a bit of exercise.

3) Stay hydrated. Believe it or not, feeling chilly can dehydrate you much like sweating on a hot day can, as your body works hard to stay warm. Track your water intake to be sure you get enough water.

4) Check your calorie intake. As we naturally stay indoors more, it’s easy to become less active. When we are less active, we need fewer calories. Comfort food is synonymous with cooler temps, yet these dishes can often pack in more calories. Evaluate your input and your output to stay on top of your weight and maintain healthy balance.
