Comments29/11/2016 #11 Kirsten HornerThanks Claire. We live with water saving and water restrictions here in Queensland, Australia - in between the floods! The larger water management infrastructure is under pressure and hasn't been planned or managed well for future supply, so everyone has to do their part on their own property.29/11/2016 #4 Rod LoaderA good post Clair. Here is Australia, virtually all rural homes have rain water tanks. I have four 20,000 litre tanks, which supplies all my household water (drinking, showers, etc) and water for my gardens, pool etc. I also have a bore, which is not as nice, but still drinkable, as a backup. When you rely on stored water, you are a lot more aware of water usage.28/11/2016 #2 Lada Prkic"Water conservation needs to be a way of life.“ I second that Claire. Your article is a very good reminder of the importance of water. My homeland, Croatia, is water-rich country and also one of the countries where you can safely drink tap water. But despite this, many people in rural and suburban areas, and especially people who live on islands are collecting rainwater to reduce their bills when using water for agriculture.
In addition, several scientific studies propose to refurbish numerous abandoned traditional rain collectors (impluviums) in the Dalmatian area of Croatia to collect rain and dew water, which could provide a significant amount of water, especially during the dry season.

Comments24/11/2016 #8 Kevin PashukBack in 2001 NYT Journalist Tom Friedman (author of The World is Flat and no relation to @Phil Friedman) stated that the first one to come up with a cheap, reliable, renewable power source will be the one to rule the world, regardless of politics. (My paraphrase).
Looks like we are still working to rule the world. Interesting concept, and better than putting a mini nuclear reactor in your pocket.24/11/2016 #4 Ken Boddie#1 You can take a technocrat to water but you can't make him drink. He's too busy trying to redesign the tap to enjoy the magnificent fluid coming out of it, Lada. There's a world of readers out there, Lada, queuing up to read our buzzes. Sometimes engagement comes from the least expected direction.24/11/2016 #2 Dean OwenThis is very interesting. Back in 2008 i concluded that there was no doubt in my mind China would have car companies to rival Toyota and Ford. Chinese cars back then were shoddy rip offs. They have improved tremendously. There are a few contenders like Great Wall, but I saw promise with BYD who were producing electric cars. Legend has it the Chairman of BYD bought a Mercedes S Class then told his workers to disassemble it to see how it was built. They refused to take apart such a beautiful new car, so he got out his key and scraped all along the side of the car and said, "now do it!". BYD has since been at the forefront of lithium battery, and electric car production. Their cars are still pretty bad, but getting better. Warren Buffet has had a stake in them for a while now. I believe he bought at around RMB 20, it went up to 90, and is now around 46. With the development you mention above, I would suggest BYD is a good buy right now. Seeing how Japanese, and now Korean cars have improved, I have no doubt Chinese car makers will produce high quality cars within the next decade.

Few things in life are same of the trees if cut the water from it will died , cut and then dry, and when it comes to mitigating differences between people we need watering these distinctions .18/11/2016 #31 Joris Plaatstaal#26 "Conformity is not learning @Joris Plaatstaal" So now I know why you are here @Ali Anani, thank you.
It proves that if one needs an answer to a question one just have to ask.
To go on-topic about trees and roots and us... Well, I am sure you know this, but nevertheless I link it.
I like this, though it can be misunderstood.18/11/2016 #27 Franci Eugenia HoffmanTrees have roots to assist them in grasping the ground and holding on to life. Humans have roots to assist them in connecting with others and holding on to life. Unfortunately, humans don't always appreciate their roots and lose touch with life and all it has to offer. Humans can benefit from learning about trees and the challenges they face. Learning to adapt to uncontrollable or controllable circumstances is a major advantage in how humans can cope with challenges.16/11/2016 #25 Joris Plaatstaal#13 @ Ali Anani. "yes, we humans have choices, but do we select carefully?" .... I think not. They majority of people I know, just go with the flow. They need to conform to the public mind. They need to be part of, some, society.... I give you that, trees just live or die. Can humans live without conformation? I doubt it, I think we need it. I think we are so desperate in need of just that, conformation. Are we willing to ignore the entity we are in order to receive conformation?
Loose yourself in order to fit in the virtual hive? To be accepted? To be what some idea wants you to be?
I entered beBee to question us and myself. Why are you and me here, in this domain? Why do we even spent time here? Is being on social media a conformation to the rest?
I need to learn. I will learn.14/11/2016 #24 Ali Anani#23 No question I am going to spend this evening pondering on this idea "Our barter system of time/intelligence for money should act like the grove of trees. Learn, stabilize and grow.......But for some reason the need for volatility is strong in the human psyche". This is sheer brilliance @Harvey Lloyd. I shall be back with more elaboration of my understanding of this great and provoking idea.14/11/2016 #23 Harvey Lloyd#20 The hurricane within the metaphor is our current political climate to humans or the opportunity for the sapling to grow is when the grove becomes damaged and the canopy opens.
Our economic system benifits from volatility, it shakes the leaves of money lose from one group and allows another to flourish. The system can be played, but to what end? Our barter system of time/intelligence for money should act like the grove of trees. Learn, stabilize and grow.......But for some reason the need for volatility is strong in the human psyche. We have to shake things up.
We call this our best system to satisfy the masses the best way possible. Trees show us a different path. But the path is not special, exciting or glorifying. Humans have to make that part work.

And http://media.mercola.com/assets/pdf/product-labels/shampoo.pdf and the conditioner. It takes about 2 weeks for your hair to get used to it. Your hair might look greasy for the first short time. After that, whatever problems you might have will get better. Conditioner and shampoo last very long, so that it´s even super cheap.
Might not be perfect but as close as it gets while still offering the same features as the bad stuff.08/11/2016 #18 Aurorasa Sima#17 I only knew it because I already tried to remove every single product containing palm oil. Even many organic brands are trying to cheat on you and use only some organic ingredients.
Marketing departments go through great lengths to make up so many words for sugar, palm oil and and and that it´s hard to keep up.
