FABULOUS HOUSEHOLD HINTS

I CAN’T WAIT TO TRY SOME OF THESE FABULOUS HINTS!!!

Why not have some fun over the coming weekend and try some of these hints for yourselves.  Keep the rest on hand for future reference.
I’m sure you’ll find many useful hints here.

I’ve been microwaving corn on the cob for some time now, just as the hint recommends, and it tastes great!!! (far better than any other method!)

What’s the appropriate expression here ~ I think it’s,
“Necessity is the mother of invention”.

Here’s a bit of trivia for you re the above phrase – The author of this proverbial saying isn’t known. It is sometimes ascribed to Plato and it does appear in translations of Plato’s Republic… The proverb was known in England by the 16th century, although at that point it must have been known to very few as it was then documented in its Latin form rather than in English. Many well-known proverbs appeared first in Latin and were transcribed into English by Erasmus and others, often as training texts for latin scholars. http://www.phrases.org.uk/meanings/necessity-is-the-mother-of-invention.html

INGENIUS! ~ CREATE DRINKING WATER FROM BILLBOARD!

A billboard in Peru
creates clean drinking water
from the air!!!
No way! ~ YES way!!!
PERU BILLBOARD WATER

What remarkable ingeniuty!!!

UTEC, the university of engineering and technology in Lima, Peru in collaburation with Mayo DraftDCB has developed the world’s first billboard that can produce potable water from the air as a promotional admissions campaign. In this region rainfall is scarce year-round, but atmospheric humidity reaches almost 98% – the project provides residents with up-to 96 liters clean drinking water in reserve tanks situated in taps at the foot of the sign, instead of having them deal with polluted wells.

Interestingly, the project wasn’t so much driven by Lima’s need for water as UTEC’s need for more engineering students. Their motto is “We will continue changing the world through engineering.” And if this is what such students could get working on, we’re all for it.

BILLBOARD WATER PERU7croppedThe billboard contains five generators that churn out purified water through a reverse osmosis system. The system sends water to a tank that can store up to 100 liters per day. As you can see in the video above, people are actually using the billboard to get fresh water. In three months of operation, the billboard has produced thousands of liters.

Fortunately, the Peruvian government isn’t counting on UTEC and Mayo DraftCFB. They’ve recently announced a $3.3 billion-dollar upgrade they plan on making to their water and sewage infrastructure to provide better drinking water to their citizens.
