Water Resources
005 - Water Resources In this video Paul Andersen explains how water is unequally distributed around the globe through the hydrologic cycles. Seawater is everywhere but is not useful without costly desalination. Freshwater is divided between surface water and groundwater but must me stored and moved for domestic, industrial, and agricultural uses. Subsidized low cost water has created a problem with water conservation but economic changes could help solve the problem. Do you speak another language?

Water Resource Issues: What You Need To Know!
Water Resource Issues: What You Need To Know! Water is the most important resource on the planet. It's also the most plentiful. But it's also not as useable as you may think. As the world grows in population, countries develop out of poverty, and weather patterns change all over the globe, water resource issues arise. Without a proper plan for fixing these issues, we could be in for a very tough future. Here are ten of the biggest water resource issues facing the world. This top 10 brought to you by Zero2Hero!! Don't forget to subscribe here! https://goo.gl/NXuChu Click here to see the Top 10 RAREST Birds on Earth!! https://youtu.be/jJXwi1gVhf8 Number 10: The 1% Rule. Despite the incredible amount of water available on our planet, only one percent of it is actually drinkable. Luckily, that amount has been good enough to sustain human life for millennia, but, as our world changes, we may need much more than that. Even worse, this small percentage isn't as clean as it used to be. Most of the water on Earth, 97 percent or so, is salty ocean water, so we can't really use it for anything. Another 2 percent is frozen solid in the ice caps at the North and South Pole, so it's unreachable. That leaves only 1 percent that we can use for everything we need. On the plus side, this small percentage of fresh water is fairly accessible. A lot of it is in lakes and ponds around the world, as well as underground wells throughout the planet. We can easily get to it and move it from place to place to take care of everybody, but many challenges are rising, including the growth of our world population. Number 9: More People. The world population is exploding. In the early 19th century, the entire planet had one billion people. Today, estimates clock in at around 7.5 billion people worldwide. Mankind has never grown by these numbers in history. With the growth of population comes a natural need for more water. Every person needs to drink, bathe, wash clothes, and do many other things, all involving fresh water. The supply is being stretched incredibly thin, and will only be getting thinner. At the rate things are moving, experts believe we will have 11.2 billion people on Earth by the year 2100. The problem goes beyond drinking and bathing, too. Water is needed for farming, taking care of animals, and all kinds of infrastructure as villages grow into towns and towns grow into cities. As the population increases, the need for clean water will increase just as much. Number 8: Development. As with population growth, cities are growing all over the planet. People have to live somewhere, right? So, a lot of infrastructure has to be put in place, such as houses, streets, buildings, stores, and many other conveniences of daily life. Most of all, more water needs to flow to these areas so people can live. With a growing population comes the need for more products and services, too. People will need transportation, food, services and tons of other things, all of which require water to produce. Unfortunately, if we don't figure out how to handle this added burden, we could be in for a tough road ahead. Many nations around the country are growing faster than ever before and seeing huge numbers of new residents. It can be hard to keep up with infrastructure, especially in rural nations where water is already rare enough. Sometimes the problem can be eased by rain, but quite often these areas are in drought, which leads us to... Number 7: Worldwide Droughts. Worldwide droughts have been on the rise in recent years. If that's not bad enough, some of these droughts have lasted longer and been more severe than ever before. Scientists studying climate change are worried that these problems will only get worse. Before we get into the issues of drought, though, take a moment to like this video and to subscribe to Zero2Hero! It only takes a second of your time, but, it means a lot to us here! When an area experiences a drought, it can be weeks, or even months before a single drop of rain hits the ground. The residents have to find water somewhere else and sometimes the government has to ship it in. All of this costs money, and for poorer nations this can be too heavy a burden. Weather patterns have been drastically changing in recent decades, leading to stronger hurricanes, tornadoes, droughts and other major weather events. Many believe that global warming is causing many of these issues and that we may not even be able to undo the damage. Number 6: Many Uses. As we know, water is an important element of nearly everything on Earth. From start to finish, water is involved through many processes of creating all kinds of goods. Without sufficient water, a lot of the goods we enjoy today will have to limit their supply or stop production for good.

The U.S. government predicts that by 2025, 60 percent of the world’s landmass, and 40 of our 50 U.S. states will experience water shortages— some of them extreme. The U.S. intelligence community sees worldwide water shortages as a major national security risk. Water scarcity helped trigger the Syrian civil war and has been a key reason why Africans have migrated in large numbers to Europe. More of this can be expected. But there is cause for optimism. And it comes from a very unlikely place—a country in the middle of a desert. That country is Israel. Compelled by necessity and powered by remarkable technological innovations, Israel has become the world’s water superpower. By reusing waste water, by making desalination affordable, by rethinking irrigation, and by developing an array of sophisticated water conservation techniques, Israel not only has a sufficiency of water, but an abundance of it. What Israel has done, other nations can do, too, including its Mideast neighbors. And while it’s a lot to hope for, cooperation on water issues could become the basis for cooperation on other issues as well. For Israel, an obsession with water is not new. The word “water” appears 600 times in the Hebrew Bible. For over 2,000 years daily prayers for rain in the land of Israel have been a part of traditional Jewish ritual. For the founders of the modern State of Israel, water was not only a daily concern, but a paramount question of future survival. Vast quantities of water would be needed for the millions of immigrants who would make their way to the new country. Without plenty of water, economic growth would be impossible. But where was the water going to come from? It was a daunting challenge, but one which Israel overcame. Today, while other nations, even ones with far more natural water resources, struggle with water management, Israel has a surplus of useable water. The desert, as Israel’s founders dreamed, is blooming. Not only does the country supply its own population with an array of fruits and vegetables, but it exports billions of dollars worth of produce to nations around the world. So, how does a small country with little annual rainfall, with only one freshwater lake, and with no major rivers do this? It begins with a nothing-wasted attitude that extends from the government to private industry to farming to consumers. Israel charges its citizens the market price for water—no subsidies. You can have as much water as you want, but you have to pay for it. And when you pay for something, you tend to be more careful with how you use it.

Water Resources - ways of watering crops
A small video about farming and water resources in India. Do you know that farming is the main occupation of many people in our country? In India, farmers mainly depend on rainfall for growing crops. However, the distribution of rainfall varies from one region to another. Farmers face a challenge while growing crops as they need a constant supply of fresh water. Thus, fresh water is supplied to the fields through the process of irrigation. The practice of supplying water to an area of land through pipes or channels for growing crops is know as irrigation. Tube wells, sprinklers and canals are some methods of irrigation that most farmers in India use. Let us know more about them: - Tube wells are used to supply underground water tunnels. These are dug in places where water is found deep below the earth's surface. The underground water is brought to the surface with the help of a pump; - Sprinkler irrigation is another method of supplying water to the fields. It is done with the help of a device which is attached to pipes. A pump is used to force the water out to the pipes. Sprinklers distribute water on the fields like natural rainfall; - A canal is a long and slightly narrow passage that is dug in the ground to carry water to the fields. Canals get water from rivers. Some canals also get water from reservoirs of dams. - Damns are built across a river in order to prevent the water from flowing. The river water is stored in a reservoir behind the dam. The water stored in here is then taken to the fields through canals. Dams are useful to us in many ways; they are used to generate hydroelectricity. They also hold the excess water flowing in the river and prevent floods. When dams serve more than one purpose, they are called multipurpose projects. Have you seen any of these methods of irrigation used for watering fields?

Inside Story - What can be done to stop global water scarcity?
Water scarcity is a growing problem, caused by everything from man-made climate change to poor governance. It is affecting more people than ever before and across all continents. In a time of technological innovation, why is something as basic as access to water still such a huge problem? And even as aid organisations work to resolve it, has climate change progressed so far that water scarcity will inevitably affect ever more people?The UN says in the next ten years more and more countries will see their resources dry up.

NASA | Show Me the Water
Freshwater seems abundant, but when accounting for all the water on Earth, it's in limited supply. Just three percent of the water on our planet is freshwater. A majority of this water, about two percent of the world total, is contained in glaciers and ice sheets or stored below ground. The remaining one percent is found in lakes, rivers and wetland areas or transported through the atmosphere in the form of water vapor, clouds and precipitation. Rain and snowfall replenish freshwater sources, making it vital to know when, where and how much water is falling at any given time. Using NASA's Global Precipitation Measurement satellite, researchers can track precipitation worldwide and monitor levels from space.

Water2Life – Grundfos help villages in Vietnam get clean water and water resources | Grundfos Pumps
Grundfos employee’s project – Water2Life – helped Vietnamese villages utilize their scarce water resources and get clean water. With the Water2Life project, a whole village in Vietnam got clean water and are able to use more of their scarce water resources more efficiently. Water2Life is a project started by the employees at Grundfos in order to provide clean water to villages in the third world. WATER2LIFE: FIGHTING THE LACK OF CLEAN WATER The project Water2Life, started by the employees at Grundfos, aims to provide clean water to ten communities within three years – they have already had great success with similar projects earlier. Water resources is limited in countries like Vietnam and that is why the Water2Life project started here. A big part of Vietnam has access to water but it is undrinkable – meaning they have limited access to clean water. There is water everywhere because of all the rivers and canals from the Mekong River. These rivers are the only water resources for many Vietnamese people because they do not have access to any form of clean water. That is what the Water2Life project wants to change, so that every inhabitant in Vietnam get access to clean water – that is the ultimate goal for all people in the world with Water2Life. The first village in Vietnam to get clean water as a direct result from the Water2Life project was the little village of An Quoi in the Mekong Delta. They now have access to clean water and are able to use their limited water resources much better than they were able to before the Water2Life project stepped in an establish a pump in the village. See why the lack of clean water in Vietnam got the attention from the Water2Life project and how the Water2Life project helped the villagers to administer their water resources: http://www.grundfos.com/about-us/sustainability-responsibility/water2life/vietnam.html SCARCE WATER RESOURCES As mentioned earlier do the inhabitants of Vietnam have access t0 a great deal of water resources but almost all of the water is undrinkable. Heavy metals, chemicals and bacteria heavily pollute the former clean water and the only access many of the villages have to clean water is rainwater caught off the rooftops and kept in big jars – but that cannot be classified as sustainable water resources. Water2Life provides the villages in different parts of the world with a reliable source of clean water. The need for clean water is enormous in Vietnam and the Water2Life project is a step in the right direction in direction to get access to better and cleaner water resources. Water resources is a given for people in the developed world but for people in e.g. Vietnam the Water2Life project is a big help with utilizing the scarce water resources. ---------------------------- Connect with us on LinkedIn https://www.linkedin.com/company/grundfos-holding-a-s Like us on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/GrundfosEngineering/ Tweet us on Twitter: https://twitter.com/grundfos Plus us over at Google+ https://plus.google.com/114202145348640339056/posts ------------------ THE FIRST VILLAGE TO GET HELP FROM WATER2LIFE The first village in Vietnam to get help from the Water2Life project was the little village of An Quoi in the Mekong Delta. Here the Water2Life have established a pump system to gain access to clean water and tap into clean water resources. The heart of the water system is a SQFlex pump powered by the sun. There is a big potential for solar energy in Vietnam and therefor for solar powered pumps to help villages gain access to clean water. Learn more about the potential in the video below: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CDwPhzZis1I CLEAN WATER FOR ALL Water resources in countries like Vietnam is scarce, but that does not mean, that we cannot utilize the water resources in a better way in order to get clean water into all villages in the country. When you talk about water resources, it is important to differentiate between the ones that are polluted and the ones that contains clean water.

Clean Water: A Long Journey from the Source to Our Tap
We turn the faucet and it's always there. CLEAN, SAFE AND ABUNDANT. Water, the essence of life. We use it every day, but we rarely think about the fact that it's been through a complex journey and many changes before it gets to our home. Pennsylvania's SOURCE WATER comes from surface water like our rivers, lakes and streams or from groundwater, the aquifers that lie beneath the earth. Water suppliers tap into these sources and treat the water before delivering it to us, ready to drink. This SOURCE WATER is affected by what happens on the land around it, and although we don't mean to, our daily activities often end up polluting our most essential resource. Polluted runoff is the number one cause of water quality problems today.

How Google drains America's fresh water -  the real price of Google's targeted ads
Google drains 1.5 million gallons of water every day from Coastal South Carolina aquifers to cool its data center. Together with its 4 million gallons of tap water withdrawal, Google is by far the third largest consumer of fresh water resources in the counties surrounding Charleston. Thus Google uses increasingly scarce fresh water to cool its Goose Creek data center in Berkeley County, only to deliver you targeted advertisements. Google trades water for marketing.

Despite dropping water levels, Google still went ahead to tap into the aquifer, further escalating the already alarming downward trends. Google is not the biggest consumer of fresh water, but it is the one that's most redundant. Farmers need to water to grow food, people need groundwater to drink. But we don't to spent fresh water so that Google can track us for their own marketing needs. Do you think that depleting fresh water resources to cool data centers should be allowed or not?

'Shahpurkandi Dam Project Will Cut Water Flow To Pak' : Amarinder Sing
This video shows you that 'Shahpurkandi Dam Project Will Cut Water Flow To Pak' : Amarinder Sing. The Shahpurkandi dam project will reduce the outflow of the Ravi river water to Pakistan once it is completed, Punjab Chief Minister Amarinder Singh on Friday said. The Rs. 2,700 crore Shahpurkandi dam project, being set up on the Ravi river, will generate 206 MW of power, besides having the potential to irrigate 5,000 hectares of land in Punjab and 31,000 hectares of land in Jammu and Kashmir's Sambha and Kathua districts. "This water, which was supposed to irrigate fields in Punjab and J-K, was going towards Pakistan. This project will reduce the water flowing into Pakistan drastically and will help save the critical water resources of the state," Mr Singh said while addressing the gathering in Pathankot. The chief minister, who was here for rededicating the project to people of Punjab, said it will be completed in three years. Of the estimated cost, which is in addition to Rs. 640 crore already spent till 2014, Rs. 1,408 crore would be spent on the power component, with 100 per cent share of the Punjab government, and Rs. 685 crore on the irrigation component, with a share of Rs. 485 crore to be contributed by the central government and Rs. 179.28 crore by the state government. The Shahpurkandi dam project is being constructed on the Ravi river, 11 km downstream of the Ranjit Sagar Dam project and 7 km up stream of Madhopur Head works. The Shahpurkandi dam project was described as a "national project" by the Centre in 2008. However, this project, which was initially a Punjab and J-K joint venture, was held up in year 2014. The work was stopped by J-K authority on August 30, 2014 on its side "under the guise" of the Punjab Termination of Agreements Act 2004, as per an official release. However, after the intervention of the Centre, both Punjab and the J-K governments signed an agreement in September last year to restart the work on the project. The project will be monitored by a team comprising a Central Water Commission member and chief engineers from the two states. Mr Singh said as many as 230 families ousted as a result of the project were offered jobs and another 34 would be given jobs shortly. The chief minister, who was accompanied by MP Sunil Jakhar and MLA Bhoa Joginder Pal, personally handed over appointment letters to five employees recruited for the Shahpurkandi dam construction.

Hidden Secrets Of The Bible For Attracting What You Want - NO ONE TELLS YOU THIS!
Hidden Secrets Of The Bible For Attracting What You Want - NO ONE TELLS YOU THIS! ➡ For My Free Success Hypnosis Mp3 ➡ https://www.jakeducey.com/hypnosis ➡ For My Free 2nd Mind Neuroprogrammer Demo ➡ https://www.jakeducey.com/thesecondmind In this video we discuss the bible teachings in a new way that explain consciousness and the law of attraction. To the person that has, more will be given. In Law of Attraction terms, that's about being in abundance, even if your physical world tells you otherwise. And when you are in fear or scarcity, you will continue to attract undesirable situations. Because when you don't have, as the bible says, even what you have will be taken. This means that when you are in a vibration or energy of lack and not enough, then you will attract even more of that low energy. Learn to attract what you want using these teachings. Transcript... this is going to open up the floodgates so that you can manifest anything that you want in a race all of your past so that you can have everything that you really desire in your life. Let's dive right into this video so they don't want you to know this, but what it's saying in the Bible is that let this mind be within you, which was also in Christ Jesus, who being in the form of man thought it not robbery to be equal with God. They didn't think that it was robbery to be one with God. God is within you when they say the Kingdom of Heaven is within, it's within you. Yet we walk around our whole lives thinking that we're not good enough. You're not smart enough. You're too old. You're too young. You're not good looking enough. You don't deserve it. You can't possibly figure it out. You don't have the resources. You don't have the money. How could you not have all of those things? You're one with God, your need. There is no separation. You're made in the image of it. You have access to all of the powers, to all the knowledge of creation, all the answers that you're looking for. All the the, the doors will open where it doesn't even look like there's doors right now, but you have to stop looking at your mortal self. You have to stop looking at your natural self. You have to stop thinking that when you look in the mirror, that's who you are. When you look in the mirror, you think that's who you are. That's not who you are. That's just the car that you're renting for your soul to have an experience here on planet earth. Here's exactly what it says in the Bible. We are not stoning you for any good work. They replied, but for blasphemy because you a mere man claim to be God and Jesus replied something to the effect of isn't out written in your laws. I've said, you are all gods. I just threw my phone. It says that you're all gods. We all are. We all have access to this, to this divine intelligence of the universe. This wall that you're looking at in, in your room right now, my body, the chair, you're sitting on this chair right here. Guess what? It's not solid. We call it matter, right? Guess what matters made up of atoms. Guess what? An atom is 95 to 99% empty space. What is it? It's 95 to 99% of everything physical in, in this reality that you're in right now is actually nonphysical according to science, 95 to 99% of it is empty space. It's empty space. What is it then? It's nonphysical intelligence. It's God consciousness. God is in everything. God's in money, Godson, everything. God's in your body, God's in every person that you dislike, gods and every person that you like. God's in everything and you're one with it. So comment down below. I'm one with the goodness of the universe. Comment down below. I am one with the goodness of the universe. The miracle working presence of all things is within you. US Anderson said, it's so beautiful. He said, I am the miracle working presence in all things that I would like done. Okay, repeat that affirmation with me. I am the miracle working presence in all things that I would like done. Calming that down below. I am the miracle working presence of all in all things I would like done. Can you feel that like it's a very, it's a very powerful spiritual energy. I am the miracle working presence in all things I would like done because you're one with God. You're one with the source of the universe and you begin to channel that source of the universe through your thought energy. Begin to see yourself not as separate from God, but as one with it as a little individualization. Just like you cook a blueberry pie and you take one slice of blueberry. What is it? It's a blueberry pie. You just have a slice of it. You don't call that knock God. You don't call that not blueberry pie. So why would you call yourself not God? It's the same analogy. We are a blueberry slice of the giant blueberry, right? He'd like of the giant Blueberry Pie. You Cook a blueberry pie and you take one slice and you have one slice in front of you. What do you have?

2018 SC Water Resources Conference: Meet Doctoral Candidate Accampo
Abridged Transcript: Well, SC is the second largest producer of peaches in the United States, right after CA. And there are over 14,000 acres of peaches and a mature peach tree in the peak of season can use up to 45 gal of h2o a day and considering that you can have from a hundred to fifteen hundred peaches per orchard that's a lot of h2o. Yeah. So what are you finding out about how to improve that - the irrigation in your research? Well, most studies done on irrigation are done in semi-arid climates like California or Spain and there's not a lot of research for subtropical humid climates like we have here in South Carolina. So humidity affects the way a tree can move h2o, so we're trying to figure out do the methods that work in California actually work here or would there be a better way of figuring out what works best for us so that we can be the most efficient with our h2o. So what are you finding out so far? Well one method that we've tried, it's a little complicated, but it's not giving us the same results as it would - as it did in California, so this is just opening up a doorway to all kinds of questions about well what other methods have we been using that haven’t been giving us accurate information? So we're looking into all the different, well not all of them, but a lot of different irrigation scheduling methods to see which one works the best for our climate. Okay so are you working with a lot of emerging technology? And we have a lot - that's been a big, big topic here at this conference is emerging technology and the importance of sensors and those sorts of things, so what are you finding out is that important as it relates to this kind of peach irrigation? Oh, definitely. It's, technology is definitely advancing very rapidly, so before when you had to just go out and feel the soil and saying yep that's kind of dry maybe I should h2o, now they have things that you can install and it will send the information to your phone and maybe even start the irrigation automatically so that you don't really have to do anything. But we want to make sure that those methods are adjusted for our climate because, like I said, most of them are being tested in the semi-arid climates. So are you testing, like in our climate, that that kind of sensor technology to see its effectiveness? We would like to, but they're also very expensive. So we're doing the best we can with what we have available. We just ordered some infrared sensors, which they measure the temperature of the leaf’s surface. Tree leaves have these little openings on them called stomata and they regulate how the tree is losing h2o because the h2o will go through the roots, through the tree, and then evaporate out of the leaves. Well, if the tree doesn't have a lot of h2o it - the roots will send signals to the leaves to close the stomata so they're not evaporating h2o as much and it's kind of like when you sweat. Whenever you sweat, you evaporate and that cools you down. It's same with the trees. When they are evaporating h2o, it cools down the leaves, so by measuring the temperature you can theoretically say this tree is reading a higher temperature so it must be more stress and we need to h2o it. Okay, so how is this going to be gonna help our farmers as it relates to their yield? Well, being more efficient with h2o is always good for proper yield because too much h2o is also a bad thing. I think it was 2013 here it just rained every day during the summer and some of the peaches actually busted from having too much h2o and the ones that didn't, didn't have very good flavor because they're just they taste very watery. You want to be in that nice sweet range, yeah, where the peaches not, I mean, the trees not stressed so it's not dropping the fruit or taking the h2o from the fruit and you also don't want to have too much h2o so that it's not, you know, making it taste bad and damaging itself. How does fertilizer figure into all this and how you use your fertilizer? Well if you h2o a lot it will eventually leach away the nutrients, so you continually have to keep putting more and more fertilizer. And the fertilizer that washes off causes pollution, so if you can optimize the h2o use efficiency you can use less h2o and in turn use less fertilizers and save money on fertilizer and h2o use.
A World Without Water (Global Warming Documentary)
This film investigates the future of the world's water, and paints a disturbing picture of a world running out of the most basic of life's essentials. 8 year old Vanessa and her parents have to walk almost a mile down the cliffs of El Alto in Bolivia to collect water from an unreliable well every day. Yet, they live just a few hundred metres from their city's main water treatment plant and can see millions of gallons just beyond the barbed wire fence. They are victims of waters increasing commodification. The struggle for this precious resource and the battle for its ownership is explored through compelling stories of families living in Bolivia, Detroit, Dar Es Salaam and Rajestan. As the background to these stories we explore the conflicts over the future of water and see how even those living in the relatively water-rich UK hold the survival of the planet in our hands.

2018 SC Water Resources Conference: Meet Doctoral Candidate Garcia Chance
Abridged Transcript: Environmental toxicology is essentially the application of the medical field of toxicology, but to the environment. We are often concerned about how contaminants can affect humans, but in recent years, we became aware that while some contaminants may not harm humans, they can have implications in the environment and in our environmental structures. A great example is Rachel Carson and Silent Spring, and recognition that the chemical DDT while it wasn't harmful to humans, it had really bad implications in terms of the deterioration of eggshells for birds. And so this was kind of one of the first cases in which we really realized there's this separate environmental toxicology concept... So we identified that despite the fact that our doctoral research really focuses on remediating runoff from nurseries..., that we didn't really have a characterization of the water that was being applied to these operations. And without that baseline, it becomes difficult to understand where in the processes of the operations there then introducing these contaminants. And by understanding that better, it helps us to then solve how to remove them from the system. So that being said, we decided that it would be best if we went out and we kind of did some groundwork and determined, especially within the state South Carolina where, you know, new policies and new changes within our regulations are going to be enacted within the next several years, how can we actually look at how much water is being applied, who is applying it, how are they applying it, and then what that water looks like. So, what were your preliminary findings on that? We divided our growers into the three different major areas of South Carolina, so we had Piedmont, Central and Coastal areas. And one of the great things that we found just looking at the preliminary survey findings was differences in the actual ways that these growers use water and apply that water. So for example, in the Upstate we tend to find that they use a lot more drip irrigation, which happens to be very water use efficient. There's very little water that is actually left as runoff from those operations. Comparatively, we have a large number of overhead irrigators in the coastal area. And so those are growers that…are applying a lot of water, there tends to be more runoff. But the really great outcome of that was that at the same time, while we were seeing that trend, we were also seeing a trend in the terms of reuse of that water. So while the Upstate growers do not tend to reuse their water, that's because they have very little runoff that's occurring to begin with, and so it's very hard for them to capture it and reuse it, comparatively the coastal growers with their overhead irrigation, they tend to reuse and recycle their water on a much larger scale, which makes sense because they're applying overhead irrigation that has a lot more runoff. And so that was a very hopeful finding and, furthermore, a lot of these growers are really engaged and they want to know how to best manage their water resources and manage their water quality, and so I think there's a really great opening for our policies here in SC to integrate specialty crops growers into any new policies that are made because they're definitely engaged and they’re willing to help and be proactive in how they're handling these sources. I know you've been active with the South Carolina Water Resources Center and some of the conferences in the past, so why is this particular conference important to you and your professional career path forward? So, I'm very excited about this conference in particular for several reasons. One is that I'll be graduating in May and so, you know, coming here and networking and making connections is really a great opportunity for opening different paths for my future, but also for this Water Resources Conference, I was able to bring some of my undergraduate researchers with me and so that's really exciting to see them engage in the sessions and learn and give them the opportunity to make connections and try and, you know, find their own way. And so both those two combined together has been really fun for this conference. Well good, we're glad that's been good for you. And what's your dissertation research in? So my dissertation research focuses on the use of bio remediation methods, specifically using plants - I'm a plant nerd myself and so I love working with plants - and using those plants to remove excess nutrients from runoff. So from both agricultural production and urban runoff.

Why Horseshoe Crab Blood Is So Expensive | So Expensive
Horseshoe crab blood is a vital resource to the medical field. It's unique in more ways than one: the blue color and its ability to identify bacterial contamination in small quantities. Horseshoe crab blood contains a special amebocyte that is separated and then used in FDA testing. There's a lot of questions as to how blood harvesting affects the American horseshoe crab population, but some researchers are dedicated to the cause of protecting such a significant resource. ------------------------------------------------------ Business Insider tells you all you need to know about business, finance, tech, retail, and more. Subscribe to our channel and visit us at: http://www.businessinsider.com/ BI on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/businessinsider/ BI on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/businessinsider/ BI on Twitter: https://twitter.com/businessinsider -------------------------------------------------- Following is a transcript of the video: Narrator: This blueish liquid is one of the most expensive resources in the world. No, it's not the blue milk from "Star Wars." It's actually blood from a horseshoe crab, and the stuff this blood makes costs $60,000 a gallon. So why is it so expensive and who's buying horseshoe crab blood? The blue color comes from copper in the blood. But that's not it's most interesting feature. The blood contains a special clotting agent. It's used to make a concoction called Limulus amebocyte lysate or LAL. Before LAL, scientists had no easy way of knowing whether a vaccine or medical tool was contaminated with bacteria. Like E. coli or salmonella. Scientists would inject vaccines into huge numbers of rabbits and then basically wait for symptoms to show up. But when LAL was approved for use in 1970, it changed everything. Drop a minuscule amount of it onto a medical device or vaccine, and the LAL will encase any gram-negative bacteria in a jelly cocoon. While it can't kill the bacteria, the jelly seal is like a fire alarm. Alerting us to the presence of what could become a potentially lethal infection and prevent it from spreading. Each year, the medical industry catches around 600,000 horseshoe crabs. The crabs are drained of 30% of their blood and up to 30% of the crabs don't live through the process. The survivors are returned to the water, but no one really knows how well or if they recover. In 2016, the International Union for the Conservation of Nature bumped the American horseshoe crab up to vulnerable on it's red list, one step below endangered. And the US population could keep falling, by as much as 30% over the next 40 years. LAL Labs claim that the returned crabs eventually recover, but new evidence suggests that's not always the case. Win Watson is trying to figure out what happens to the crabs when they're put back in the sea. Win Watson: So, the most immediate negative effect is mortality. Anywhere from 10% to 25% of the animals will die within the first couple days after bleeding. Narrator: Bled crabs become disoriented and weak for a period of time, and females may have trouble spawning. Watson: If they survive the first – I'll say two weeks, week, two week — and they're back in their natural habitat they did pretty well.  Narrator: But it's getting through those two weeks that's the issue. Watson: You know, based on our data and other's I think that you need to treat them a little — if you're going to get — increase their survival rate, right, you need to treat them better. Narrator: Scientists are trying to find a synthetic alternative to help reduce the strain on the horseshoe crab population. But so far, LAL is still required by the FDA for this type of testing. So if these animals really aren't recovering at the rate companies previously thought, we might eventually run out of crabs to bleed. If that happens, our lives and the lives of countless rabbits, might be at risk.

Causes and effects of water pollution
Water is a  basic resource that  guarantees the life of all living beings on the planet. However, its scarcity and pollution cause millions of people to have poor access to this much-needed asset. Although there are processes such as water treatment or desalination that facilitate its treatment, use and consumption in areas with quality or supply problems, it is first necessary to avoid its contamination. In this video we show you what are the main causes of water pollution, as well as its effects.
