Quality of Greenhouse Water

by Jeanette Smith
Water is one of the most important elements in growing in a greenhouse and the quality of the irrigation water is often overlooked. Water has a critical role in nutrient uptake and overall plant health. The quality of the water can change depending on the source or time of year. It is important to know the quality of the water being used to help improve crop health, decrease the cost of production, and avoid expensive maintenance of the irrigation system. Frequently testing the water can help understand how the water can change at a given location. It will also help […]

https://twitter.com/athletelena/status/954805358815453185 It is important to stay hydrated with Real Water during high-intensity and endurance workouts. Hydration can have a huge impact on a workout. According to Sports Dietician Australia, as a person loses fluids, he/she will have a decrease in physical and mental performance. Also, the exercise being performed will feel harder than it should. That needed edge comes from performance, according to celebrity fitness trainer Don Brooks. It does not matter if a person is headed for the gym or the basketball court, the performance presented at the beginning of the game should be the same as at the […]

Moganite is a rare mineral and can only be from the evaporation of mineral-rich alkaline water. The rare mineral was found in a Saharan meteorite. According to Masahiro Kayama, a researcher from Tohoku University, Japan, the chip is from the moon. It is believed to have been blasted into space as a result of an impact long ago. Scientists know the moganite came from the moon because its appearance, chemistry, and isotope ratios match those of rocks that were brought back by Apollo astronauts. The moganite chip came from the Procellarum Terren, which spans much of the upper-left quadrant of […]

Real Water bottles are made from recycled plastic and this is why: Single-use plastic bags and bottles have covered grounds and beaches, and now scientists have discovered them at the deepest point on Earth, the Mariana Trench. The Mariana Trench is 36,000 feet below the ocean’s surface where scientists have discovered a single-use plastic bag. Plastic does not decompose; it breaks up into smaller pieces and never disintegrates. Eighty-nine percent of the plastics used are for single-use. Some grocery stores will take them back and recycle them, so they do not end up in a landfill or at the bottom […]

According to Lance Gilman, the partner broker of the Tahoe-Reno Industrial Complex said that nanotechnology could help clean up the dirty water in Northern Nevada to make it safe for drinking. Gilman believes that the new technology for cleaning water could also be used to clean wastewater from households. It can even make salt water safe for drinking. Nanotechnology is an engineering that “deals with matter on the atomic, molecular, and supramolecular scale. Nanomembranes can neutralize bacteria and impurities in water.” Gilman believes the nanotechnology will benefit the water systems in Northern Nevada, especially his tenants in the industrial complex: […]

Sometimes that to-do list is easy and there is time leftover for friends, family, and fun. Other weeks, however, that to-do list requires a break from all distractions and there is no time to even talk to family. Therefore, balance is required to even out the pace of work and life. The more responsibilities, the harder it is to find that sense of balance. Nonetheless, it is not impossible. The three founders of the women’s denim brand, All Year Round, have been able to balance the demands of their personal lives while building their business. Here are their tips on […]

Three things to consider before drinking bottled water: Has the bottled water been properly filtered? Does the bottle’s plastic leach potentially toxic chemicals into the water? Is the water alkaline or acidic? Filtered Water Most municipalities claim their water is safe to drink. However, that is not always the case. The regulation of drinking water has a direct and immediate effect on the well-being of the citizens in the area. The bureau of Safe Drinking Water reviews the compliance data from 598 public water systems based on state and federal regulations. If the data from a water system exceeds that […]

Alkaline phosphatase is an enzyme, or protein found in the body. Enzymes help the chemical reactions take place in the body. They can break large molecules into smaller ones and join smaller molecules to create structures. There is alkaline phosphatase in the digestive system, the kidneys, intestines, the liver, bones, and placenta. If there are signs of a bone disorder or liver disease, a doctor will order an alkaline phosphatase (ALP) test to measure the amount in the blood. Sometimes it will be part of a broader range of tests called a routine hepatic level. This tests liver function. If […]

People who eat fast food are exposed are exposed to higher levels of phthalates, than people who eat home-cooked meals. Scientists studied 10,253 participants from a national survey. The survey questions included: What did you eat? Where did the food you ate come from? The survey covered a 24-hour period. Phthalate levels were measured from the participants’ urine. Phthalate levels were 40 percent higher in those who ate the most fast food, according to Ami Zota, the senior author and assistant professor of environmental and occupational health at George Washington University. Phthalates have been linked to serious health problems. People […]

The Alkaline Diet has been approved by the Duchess of York. She says she starts her day will green juices. She believes the Alkaline Diet is a “very strong, clean diet.” She adds turmeric and ginger to pineapple and a lot of asparagus. Turmeric is a natural diuretic and this mixture works well for the Duchess. The Duchess is not the only one celebrating the Alkaline Diet, Elle McPherson, and the Marchioness of Worcester are also championing the diet plan. The Marchioness told the Telegraph, in 2012, that if helped her get through chemotherapy. She considered the diet a complementary […]
