Wastewater As “Want”-water

 

By: Cutright, Elizabeth Comments …Tuesday, August 14, 2012 10:13 AM … Wastewater As "Want”-water

 

What if we could change the paradigm? What if instead of compartmentalizing our water resources—wastewater here, portable water there . . . some allocated for irrigation, other for drinking, manufacturing, or medical/technological pursuits—we created a more holistic approach? The water cycle is not so much split into sections, as it is a mere evolution of water from one state to another. What would it look like if we took nature as an inspiration and treated all of our water resources as part of one larger cycle?

 

Of course, that type of water resource management is already happening in many places throughout the globe, either by design or necessity. But a concerted effort to change the way we view wastewater in particular could upend our ideas of demand, supply, and what constitutes efficient water use.

 

In a special issue of Science released this month, in a report titled “Taking the ‘waste’ out of wastewater for human security and ecosystem stability,” a team of 16 authors from a variety of universities and research facilities combined their efforts to take a closer look at the potential of wastewater treatment, development, and reuse. At the heart of their inquiry was the question of how human behavior and outside-of-the-box resource management can not only reverse the damage done to the ecosystem and our water resources, but can actual restore, rehabilitate, and re-imagine our water resource landscape.

 

The report focuses on successful projects and programs already in progress. All across the world, communities large and small are already employing stormwater, rainwater catchment, and water recycling and reuse to supplement current supplies. By looking at everything that’s gone right (and wrong) in those examples, the authors were able to delineate three ways in which wastewater management can supplement current water shortages: substitution, regeneration, and reduction.

 

By using lower-quality treated water instead of high-quality water when appropriate, substitution can allow communities to reduce drinking water demand by using graywater and seawater when applicable. By transforming wastewater into potable drinking water, water-scarce locales like Orange County and Namibia are finding ways to reduce energy costs, control pollution, and reduce the risk of natural disasters in an economical and environmentally responsible fashion. And while not directly related to wastewater, demand reduction—particularly by control water leaks and insufficient measurement—can have a direct impact on the lives of citizens in the developing world. As the report points out, the World Bank has estimated that a reduction of water loss by only 25% could help many poor nations could supply an additional 90 million people with drinking water.

 

Significantly, the authors call for a shift in policies and attitudes. Instead of investing in large-scale infrastructure projects likes dams and billion dollar treatment plants, the report highlights the success of cities like New York, which recently spent $1 billion on habitat restoration and successfully avoiding the construction of an $8 billion treatment plant outside a farming and housing development. The authors believe that individual habits need to be targeted—like convincing homeowners to install drought friendly landscaping—while local governments need to explore low-impact solutions like biofilters and engineered wetlands.

 

“These complementary options make the most of scarce freshwater resources, serve the varying water needs of both developed and developing countries and confer a variety of environmental benefits,” conclude the report’s authors. “Their widespread adoption will require changing how freshwater is sourced, used, managed and priced.”

The Government Can Track You by Your Cell Phone Without a Warrant

 

Mike Ludwig, Truthout: "’If a tool used to transport contraband gives off a signal that can be tracked for location, certainly the police can track the signal,’ the court wrote. Translation: because cell phones can be used to commit crimes, the Fourth Amendment does not protect cell phone privacy. The civil liberties groups disagree and worry that the judges, eager to catch an obvious criminal, have set a dangerous precedent for everyone else."

Might there be something out of “sync” with these headlines …?

At the behest of our Governor – Jan Brewer – Arizona’s state legislature and those state agencies formed to provide and promote the general welfare and especially the one assigned to protect our environment and our water are curtailed while she panders to providing sport “entertainment” subsidie$…!

Oh, yea, her “kitchen-cabinet” COMMERCE AUTHORITY… thoroughly UN-vetted public/private agency she created to bring jobs to Arizona is in search of a new leader who bails after only 9 months on the job but leaving with a handsome good-bye check.  

Let’s see those agencies with responsibility to provide to Arizona citizens … quality education, provide stewardship of our environment and water … create a climate encouraging job creation are gutted … but … our Governor will provide for you and me generously subsidized college sports entertainment …

Why do “we” allow this… ?

Chinese man engineers amazing bionics to replace his arms, hands

by Terrence Aym Created on: August 20, 2012

 

Sun Jifa, 51, is a living example of the old saying, "Where there’s a will there’s a way."

Sun, a Chinese citizen who lives in Jilin province, northern China, lost both his hands and part of his forearms when a homemade bomb he built for fishing exploded prematurely.

After emergency medical treatment that saved his life, Sun discovered he couldn’t afford the expensive prosthetics offered to him by the doctors at Chinese clinics, so he set about to engineer and build his own.

"I survived but I had no hands and I couldn’t afford to buy the false hands the hospital wanted me to have—so I decided to make my own," Sun explained to aCroation Times reporter.

Eight years of methodical trial and error    It took Sun eight long years of trial and error. Experimental prototypes and scraps of design ideas filled wastebaskets and bins before he eventually crafted an ingenious pair of stainless steel hands with sleeves. 

The intricate assembly of pulleys, wires, and rods inside the bionic hands actually worked. The bionic hand is constructed similarly to this illustration.

"I control them with movements from my elbows and I can work, love normally and feed myself just like anyone else," he boasted proudly while displaying his remarkable handiwork to the impressed newsman. "The only drawback," he added, "is that steel is quite heavy so they’re tiring to wear and get hot or cold in the extremes of summer and winter."

Sun’s new hands can hold hammers, saws, turn screws, allow him to fish, drive tractors, work machinery, feed himself, even play his harmonica. In essence, his hands allow him to live life the way he always did before his accident.

Bionics on upswing worldwide    The technology of bionics—melding machines with biological systems—has been making news lately, and for good reason. The scientific engineering of advanced bionics is opening a whole new world of opportunity for amputees and those born with birth defects resulting in missing limbs. 

Like the old TV series, "The Bionic Woman," Beth Rayas, a 46-year-old Colorado amputee, became a real bionic woman. Early in January 2011, the quadruple amputee was fitted with i-LIMBs advanced bionics.

Since then more bionic breakthroughs have followed for both man and beast. During 2012, a global network of researchers announced a bold plan to achieve bionic immortality within a decade.

Recently, the Pentagon’s DARPA (Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency) announced its research program geared to creating and perfecting swarms of super bionic insects.

Sun’s hands many be godsend for thousands

The handcrafted hands may have applications for many others who find themselves in need of a hand or hands. Many people around the work who have lost a hand are forced to go through life with a stump or a hook because they don’t have the money to but more advanced bionics.

Sun’s mechanical bionic hands might not have the advanced electronics and bio-feedback the state-of-the-art bionics have, but his hands are inexpensive, easy to manufacture, and, most importantly, they really work.

The inventor says he intends to refine the design and manufacturing process and hopes to make it available for those poor around the world that need it. One or two hands can help them regain their life and dignity.

"I made this from scrap metal for virtually nothing. There is no need to pay hospitals a fortune," Sun said
