Regardless of summer or winter, don't be fooled into thinking that sunscreen is only needed when the sun is out in fool force scorching the earth. it is just as harmful in the dead of winter when the blistering cold or when the Spring shill is in the air. As long as you have some acreage of skin exposed to the sun, it's going to need sunscreen. More often than not, its the face that's going to need the protection.
Ever thought it impossible to gain attention in a market where the big dogs are spending millions of dollars a year to interrupt people and put their names in front of the masses? I know I have.
What we lack in capital, we have to make up for in creativity, tenacity and effort. We have to hustle harder than everyone else out there. We have to be the champions of our cause - day in and day out.
The water batteries however, have no such problem. Aqua Power System Japan were the first to introduce NOPOPO - an eco-friendly battery that generates No Pollution Power - thus the name NoPoPo. The battery is completely rechargeable and it can be totally recycled. The water used within the battery is regular drinking water. No need for special water like that used in a car battery.
While it certainly feels like our bones are hard, they aren't. In fact they are actually not dead, un-reactive material either. Many don't realize that bones are flexible, to a point, and they are very much living tissue. The familiar and visible exterior of the human bone is merely a casing that protects an important network of nerves, blood vessels and material that allows growth of the bone as well as the marrow.
There is only one thing that is better than being an inventor, and that is to be an inventor amongst a group of international minds, best in their fields and willing to contribute to your idea. When the spirit of the lone inventor meets the force of global collaboration, the results can reach the moon.
All of us have this one problem in common. Off course it's a problem in varying degrees. Some have a mini one, others have a herculean one. The problem is offensive socks. But how do socks get to be such a problem anyway? Well, the good news is that feet do not naturally have any odor glands.
If you look hard enough, you will find everything you need in nature. From rust proofing, to anti-bacteria to even bullet resistant material, it can all be found in nature. It so happens, as Dr. Nguyen Thi Hoe of Kova Paint Corporation found, that all four properties were in the humble rice husk. The beauty of it is that it's the husk, the part that's discarded once the grain has been removed, not the grain that is used as a staple in Eastern diets.
The human body is sensitive to its environment. We have a range within which we feel comfortable - a certain temperature range; a certain illumination range, a certain level of sound, pressure and even humidity. Alter any of this too much or for too long and the body will protest. In a dry environment, like an air-conditioned office, the moisture from our body is extracted to the environment and our skin dries.
We all know that 3D printing, or additive printing as some would call it, is the new in thing. For many of us who have seen the promo videos of the various brands and start ups that are rapidly filling up this space, the idea is both novel as it is borne out of common sense. But it is just the beginning. At the moment the 3D printer is merely an arm that sequentially lays heated plastic in layers.
Between carbon dioxide, dust, and sulfur dioxide, the air around us can get pretty polluted. In New York we emit as much as 149,000 metric tons of carbon dioxide in a day. What about dust? We know there's a lot of that too. What about sulfur dioxide, well there's about 60,000 tons of that a year in New York.
