    Jake Panasevich emerges from a several-minute dip in near-freezing water. Sara Worden Cold water swimming seminars have quickly sold out, and wetsuit demand has outpaced supply. Enthusiasts report feeling alive and socially connected after a year feeling dull and isolated. The practice can be dangerous, and benefits may be tied to other factors, like being in nature.   Visit Insider's homepage for more stories. Jake Panasevich stood on his open-air porch wearing nothing but boxer briefs in less than 10-degree weather. The yoga instructor, who's spent the pandemic with his dog in a Cayuga, New York, family lake house, called it "cold therapy." His neighbors, he presumes, called him a loon. But while standing there looking out at the ice-covered Lake Cayuga, an even zanier thought crossed his mind: "Wouldn't it be cool if there was a way to get in there?" Panasevich recalls. He wasn't the first...
    Friends and the former in-laws of cult mom Lori Vallow have revealed she was preparing for the end of the world by storing food, water, and medical supplies. Vallow, 47, believes she one of 144,000 people that will survive Doomsday and was actively stocking up on things she could lose access to in an apocalyptic event. Her friend April Raymond spoke to ABC’s ‘20/20’ for a two-hour special on Vallow and her husband, Doomsday author Chad Daybell, which will air on Friday night. ‘They were actively preparing for the end which was inevitably coming very soon,’ Raymond says of the couple. ‘Storing food, storing water, medical supplies, all the things you would need if you weren’t able to access them for whatever reason.’  Scroll down for video  Lori Vallow's friend April Raymond spoke to ABC’s ‘20/20’ about how the cult mom was preparing for the end of the world by storing...

Users were amazed by the cleaning tip, as she spilled paint on the carpet then made it look brand new. 7One TikTok user revealed how to get paint out of carpetCredit: TikTok/@kayteehaas 7The tip only requires something to scrape the paint, hot water, and a shop vacCredit: TikTok/@kayteehaas The hack was shared by TikTok user @kayteehaas, whose name is Kaytee Haas, according to her profile.

    New York : State Police, NJ Photo: NJ STATE POLICE WWW.NJSP.ORG / Courtesy A mother and her 11-year-old son were found dead yesterday in a New Jersey river, near another boy who was screaming for help, also the woman’s son. Police were called shortly after 5:30 p.m. after a child was seen wandering alone in the upper section of the Grace Lord Park pond in Boonton, NJ, the Morris County Prosecutor’s Office said. The 6-year-old boy was yelling for his mother, alerting others to call 911, a police source told NBC News.

    NEWPORT BEACH (CBSLA) — A whale watching trip off Newport Beach got lucky Monday when it came upon thousands of dolphins stampeding right alongside their boat. The sight of thousands of common dolphins swimming fast alongside a fast raft boat with Newport Coastal Adventures was captured it on video. READ MORE: UCLA Runner Chris Weiland Dismissed From Team Over Racial, Homophobic Slurs The shaky video showed dolphins as far as the eye could see, jumping in and out of the water.

    Reuters February 22, 2021 0 Comments Some 8.8 million people in Texas, about a third of the state’s population, still had issues with their water supply as of early Monday, authorities told Reuters, after a record-breaking freeze knocked out power stations last week. Millions of Texans are still being advised to boil water before using, though all power plants were back online over the weekend and power had been restored to most homes as the weather returned to normal. Officials in Houston, the biggest city in the state, said water there was safe to use without boiling as of Sunday. “As of 7 AM Central Time Monday, more than 1,200 public water systems have reported disruptions in service due to the weather, many of them leading to Boil Water Notices.

    (Reuters) - Some 8.8 million people in Texas, about a third of the state's population, still had issues with their water supply as of Sunday evening, CNN quoted authorities as saying, after a record-breaking freeze knocked out power stations last week. Millions of Texans are still being advised to boil water before using, though all power plants were back online over the weekend and power had been restored to most homes as the weather returned to normal. Officials in Houston, the biggest city in the state, said water there was safe to use without boiling as of Sunday. The Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) did not respond to a Reuters request for comment on the CNN report. Texas Governor Greg Abbott said late on Sunday that he had joined the Texas Air Guard, the Texas National Guard and the U.S. military to distribute water. "About 3.5 million bottles of...
    The family of three young siblings who died alongside their grandmother in a house blaze after using a fireplace to keep warm have hit out at officials 'who should have been prepared' for the Texas storm.  Olivia, Edison and Colette Nguyen and their grandmother Le Loan, 75, died in the early hours of Tuesday morning at their Sugar Land home in during the statewide blackouts. Their aunt, Vanessa Kon, told The Daily Beast: 'We don't know what happened. We don't know why the lights went out like that. The city should have been prepared for it. Why was the power off? If the power wasn't off, this wouldn't have happened.'   Her comments come as Joe Biden's press secretary on Sunday confirmed the president may visit Texas 'as soon as this week'.  Jen Psaki said the president is 'eager' to help but added: 'He’s also very mindful of the fact that it’s not a...
    NEWTON (CBS) — A Newton native says the Austin, Texas area is in need of water after historic cold temperatures and a snowstorm crushed the region this week. “This is an emergency, it’s very dire here,” Amanda Pensack told WBZ-TV. “We could really use some water right now collectively.” READ MORE: Salem Man In Critical Condition After Being Hit By Car Pensack, who has been living in Massachusetts for years, recently took advantage of her remote job during the coronavirus pandemic. Two months ago, she moved to Texas to escape the New England winter weather but instead has experienced a severe weather disaster. “My roommate and I were essentially struggling to figure out a way to find food and water because our food supply ran out,” Pensack said. They were expecting a grocery delivery Monday morning but it was canceled. “We weren’t prepared for winter weather at all. We were basically...
    (CNN)Texans weathering harsh winter conditions will get some relief from the cold Saturday, although many in the state are still without basic utilities. Saturday morning temperatures may be as low as 20 degrees for many inland locations, including Dallas and College Station, but the welcome return of onshore winds and full sunshine will warm the state into the 50's and 60's in the afternoon, CNN meteorologist Derek Van Dam said. Most of the state will stay above freezing after that initial thaw.A weak cold front is expected Sunday evening, but is expected to bring only minimal impacts. As power is restored for most Texans, water problems begin to mountThe brutal temperatures, ice and snow once had power out for millions of Texas, but as of early Saturday morning, only about 85,000 people in the state were left in the dark, according to PowerOutage.US.

    SAN JOSE (KPIX) — After this week’s devastating winter storm, more than half the population of Texas is dealing with a new crisis. As of Friday, more than 14.9 million Texans had experienced a disruption in water service. That’s on top of the power outages, food shortages and icy roads. “There was no warning of like, ‘Hey, our whole infrastructure might collapse in the next couple days,'” said Nathan Kohrs. He and his girlfriend, who just moved to Austin from South San Francisco, said they lost hot water last Friday. They were able to deal with that discomfort until they completely lost water early Wednesday. Kohrs said he and his neighbors began shoveling as much snow as they could into pots and pans to boil. Luckily, Kohrs had enough he had boiled before losing water but he said that began running low too. On Friday, they lost electricity and decided...
    Reuters February 19, 2021 0 Comments A “fragile” energy grid has returned to life for frigid Texans after five days of blackouts caused by a historic winter storm, but challenges in finding drinking water and dealing with downed power lines loomed on Friday. All power plants in the state were once again functioning, but more than 190,000 homes were still without electricity on Friday morning while 13 million people – nearly half of all Texans – have experienced disruptions in water service. Jennifer Jordan, a 54-year old resident of Midlothian, Texas, said she and her husband were still without power on Friday, even though their online account with their provider indicated their issues had been “resolved.” “I have no power at my house. Not one drop of power,” the high school special-education teacher said in an interview. “It’s really hard. You are really longing to get a hot shower,...
    CHICAGO (CBS) — It’s a magic trick that even Houdini would marvel at. Stick snow in one end, and it comes out as water at the other.

    Former Texas Gov. Rick Perry said Wednesday that Texans would voluntarily go even longer without power during freezing temperatures just to keep federal regulators out of their state. "Texans would be without electricity for longer than three days to keep the federal government out of their business," Perry said in a blog post on the website of House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif. "Try not to let whatever the crisis of the day is take your eye off of having a resilient grid that keeps America safe personally, economically and strategically." AOC SAYS GREEN NEW DEAL WOULD HAVE HELPED TO PREVENT TEXAS BLACKOUTS  In Texas, just under 500,000 homes and businesses remained without power Thursday, down from about 3 million on Wednesday. The state's grid manager, the Electric Reliability Council of Texas (ERCOT), said the remaining outages are largely weather-related, rather than forced outages that were made early Monday to stabilize the power...
    A couple weeks ago, a friend and I made plans to go hiking in the Catskills, a forested and mountainous region about 2.5 hours north of New York City. The morning of our trip, I pulled up the weather forecast and it read 7 degrees. Yikes! Then I saw that strong winds made the temperature actually feel like -10 degrees. Double yikes! When most people think of hiking, they think of warm-weather jaunts through green grass and wildflowers, or foliage walks on crisp autumn days. Below-freezing snow treks aren’t typically top of mind. I’ll be the first to admit that cold weather is sometimes a pain in the ass but, if you’re prepared properly, winter hiking can be just as enjoyable as—dare I say even more enjoyable than—warm-weather hiking. First of all, you’re going to find fewer people, which, for most of us, is a good thing. Instead of standing...
    I’m afraid of the dentist. But not because of the fluorescent lights and uncomfortable tools and machines—I’m afraid of disappointing them. It’s inevitable. Even my best brushing and flossing efforts sometimes aren’t enough to prevent the dreaded gum sensitivity and plaque buildup in at least one back molar that the dentist will point out to me. I understand it’s their job, but as someone who is obsessed with dental hygiene, I needed a solution. This, more than anything, is why I decided to invest in the Burst Water Flosser. The Burst Water Flosser is similar to some of the tools dentists have but safe enough to use without, you know, having gone to dental school. The cordless handheld device fits easily in my bathroom cabinet and looks pretty darn inconspicuous. However, it has a powerful engine inside that uses a hyper-pressurized stream of water to floss between teeth and better...
    New research on COVID. KARE’s Jennifer Hoff reports: “Doctors at the University of Minnesota are announcing major discoveries about COVID-19 and their research focuses on treating the virus. … Doctors agree that vaccines are the best line of defense in a pandemic. … Part of the new study shows how SARS-CoV-2 infects two main cells in our airway and quickly. The ciliated cells and goblet cells are responsible for moving things out of your air space and the other cells produce mucus. …‘It also, unfortunately, tells us the course of the disease in SARS-CoV-2 starts early,’ said Dr. Ryan Langlois, an associate professor of microbiology and immunology with the University of Minnesota Medical School’s Center for Immunology. ‘I think that’s a critical finding here and that the earlier you can start interventions the better.’ … For example, remdesivir is an FDA approved drug used to care for COVID patients —...
    Certain foods are synonymous with particular holidays or times of year. For example, few people can imagine celebrating Valentine’s Day without ample supplies of chocolate on hand. And what summer barbecue is complete without grilled hot dogs and hamburgers? While these foods and others are must-haves during certain times of the year, that doesn’t mean they cannot be enjoyed whenever a craving arises. Apples, and particularly apple pie, are a staple of many holiday season celebrations. But apple pie is just as delicious in March, April, May, etc., as it is during the weeks between Thanksgiving and Christmas. That’s especially true when the apples are fresh. Whether yours is a seasonal or non-seasonal craving for apple pie, be sure to satisfy it with this recipe for “French Apple Pie” from Mollie Cox Bryan’s “Mrs. Rowe’s Little Book of Southern Pies” (Ten Speed Press).

    Domestic animals have often been known to save their human companions from danger. From the quick thinking of Duke, the dog who alerted his guardians to their baby’s need for urgent medical attention, to the smart actions of service dog Yolanda – who rescued her vision-impaired human from a house fire by dialing 911 – there are many animals out there who have reason earned the eternal gratitude of their human friends. However, it is truly astonishing to hear about undomesticated animals who are compelled to rush in and save the day, when they have had little to no prior experience with humans. Prepare to be amazed by the stories of these wild animals who – without any apparent reason – stepped in and saved humans from imminent death. 1.

    Democratic Senator Kyrsten Sinema announced she will vote against a $15 minimum wage if it's included in the COVID relief plan, effectively killing Democrats hopes of passing the controversial measure with a simple majority vote. 'What's important is whether or not it's directly related to short-term Covid relief. And if it's not, then I am not going to support it in this legislation,' Sinema told Politico in an interview. 'The minimum wage provision is not appropriate for the reconciliation process. It is not a budget item. And it shouldn't be in there.' Democrats hoped to pass the measure as part of President Joe Biden's $1.9 trillion COVID relief plan, which would allow them to get it through the Senate via reconciliation - a process that lets them avoid a GOP filibuster. Republicans oppose the wage hike, claiming it will hurt small businesses and put people out of work. By using reconciliation,...

    Tapovan, India — Indian rescue workers struggled Tuesday to dig away tons of rock and mud to reach survivors in a choked Himalayan tunnel after a devastating flash flood likely triggered by a glacial burst. More than 170 people were still missing two days after a wall of water and debris hurtled down a valley in the northern state of Uttarakhand, destroying bridges and roads, hitting two hydroelectric power plants and killing 32. The disaster has been blamed on rapidly melting glaciers in the Himalayan region, exacerbated by global warming. Indian researchers have said that while it initially appeared the collapse of a glacial lake caused the sudden flood, it was likely a landslide and avalanche crashing into the glacier that unleashed the cascade on the valley.   Building activity for dams and dredging riverbeds for sand and the clearing of trees for new roads — some to beef up...
    When it comes to cars, there are always various symptoms, behaviors or sounds that can be telltale of a breakdown or a malfunction in the mechanics. Just pay attention, be a little observant and do not confuse diagnoses: when in doubt it is always better to go to a professional workshop. The exhaust pipe, and more specifically, the smoke coming out of it may be indicative of a fault or malfunction in the mechanical components of the car, especially those that have to do with the engine, the emissions system, the spark plugs or the burning of fuel. If the smoke that comes out of our exhaust pipe is white, there are several reasons that cause this phenomenon and not all involve problems or defects in the mechanics. It will depend on the density of the steam expelled and the quantity. From Mapfre, they explain how to identify...
    Months of drought in southern and eastern China have left more than 300,000 people with drinking water shortages, the South China Morning Post (SCMP) reported on Sunday. Recorded rainfall since October in regions south of China’s Yangtze River has been 50 to 80 percent lower than usual, the Chinese Ministry of Water Resources said on February 4. Roughly 2.4 million people across the southeastern coastal provinces of Zhejiang, Fujian, and Guangdong have already been affected by the drought, and concerns are “growing” for people residing in Guangxi, Hunan, and Yunnan provinces, the ministry said. “More than 500,000 hectares of arable land” in China have been affected by the drought so far, “leaving 330,000 people in rural areas without a sufficient supply of potable water,” the ministry revealed. Authorities in the Zhejiang county of Sanmen recently ordered that the water supply to residents’ homes be shut off on alternate days, according to the state-run...
    (CNN) — A Louisiana woman has sought medical treatment after using Gorilla Glue spray adhesive in place of actual hair spray. Tessica Brown’s plight went viral after she revealed that her hair had been stuck in the same style for a month. She had run out of her usual hair product — Got2b Glued Blasting Freeze Spray — so she substituted the industrial-strength glue. “My hair, it don’t move. You hear what I’m telling you? It don’t move,” she said in the original video posted to TikTok last week. “I’ve washed my hair 15 times.” In another video she was seen slathering on shampoo, which failed to penetrate what she called her “forever ponytail.” According to Gorilla Glue’s website, the waterproof glue — usually used for heavy-duty repairs like cracked bathroom tiles — can be removed with acetone or isopropyl alchol. When the company got wind of Brown’s dilemma, it...
    By SETH BOSTER, The Gazette DILLON, Colo. (AP) — A few winters ago on the frozen shore of Dillon Reservoir, Dan Burnett was surprised to meet a sailing all-star, Buddy Melges, whom Burnett learned was on a family skiing trip here in Summit County. Burnett was even more surprised by the following interaction. The visiting legend had just watched the local fly across the ice in the extremely niche act of ice boating. “He said, ‘Could I take your boat out for a quick ride?’” Burnett recalls. No was the answer. “I mean, how obnoxious could I be? It was like telling Mario Andretti he couldn’t drive your car!” Burnett says. “But it makes the point: You don’t lend out your ice boat, because it could smash into bits, and the person will get killed, and that would not be good.” Such is the risk Burnett has run for decades...
    (CNN)It's the frustration of presidents from the beginning of the republic: how to get anything done when Congress gets stuck. Increasingly, it means trying to work unilaterally. Actually, increasingly is an understatement. President Joe Biden is blowing all predecessors out of the water when it comes to executive actions, orders, proclamations and memorandums.CNN's Janie Boschma compared the executive actions of the last four presidents, and Biden has already issued an entire term's worth of executive actions in a few weeks. Here's Biden's entire slate of executive actions so far and a synopsis of what they're trying to achieve. And why not? While conservatives will grouse that the President is undercutting his own call for unity by finding ways to act without Congress, it's also true the Senate in particular moves slowly, if at all.Read MoreThe looming impeachment trial has caused a delay in the confirmation of Biden's attorney general...
    Low-frequency sound waves aimed at a cloud could help to increase rainfall and alleviate drought in otherwise dry areas, according to a team of Chinese scientists. Researchers from Tsinghua University in Beijing fired sounds at clouds using a frequency of about 50 herts - barely perceptible to human ears - at 160 decibels. Study author Professor Wang Guangqian said sound waves 'excite the cloud' and vibrate it - this leads to a greater probability of water particles colliding and coming together - creating larger droplets and a greater chance of rainfall.  The team discovered that there were significantly more water droplets in the cloud after they fired their device - which is about as loud as a running jet engine.  Wang and colleagues believe that this technology could bring new and greater levels of rainfall to areas of the world that suffer from drought. Study author Professor Wang Guangqian said...
    MONTEREY — Highway 1 along the southern Big Sur Coast will remain closed until further notice after the roadway at Rat Creek slid into the Pacific Ocean, as damage from the week’s atmospheric river continues to mount. Kevin Drabinski, a Caltrans spokesperson, said that the agency had become aware that a “slip out” occurred on Highway 1 at Rat Creek in Monterey County 30.2 miles from the San Luis Obispo County border on Thursday. The location is south of Pfeiffer Big Sur State Park near Big Creek Bridge in the area that has been closed between Ragged Point in San Luis Obispo County and south of Deetjen’s Big Sur Inn in Monterey County, a span of about 45 miles. Big Sur Village remains open and accessible to those heading south from Carmel. “A thing like that doesn’t happen all of a sudden,” said Drabinski. “The hillside above the location is...
    A photographer was taken by surprise when he spotted an osprey flying through the air carrying an inflated pufferfish.  While there have been several sightings of the poisonous fish being swooped up by the birds of prey, they are usually dropped within a matter of seconds.  But this defiant seahawk continued to cling on tight to the ballooned fish as it flew beside a pier on Florida's Treasure Coast.   A seahawk was seen defiantly holding on to a poisonous inflated pufferfish off Florida's Treasure Coast this week Wildlife photographer Mark Smith was surprised to witness the unusual sight on Wednesday.  Moments before the enormous bird - ospreys have have a wingspan of up to 6ft - had dived at speed into the water and plucked the poisonous fish from the ocean.  RELATED ARTICLES Previous 1 Next 'We are in a battle for the soul...

Ayanna Pressley's office were inexplicably 'torn out' before last week's Capitol Riot, sending staff into a panic as they tried to barricade themselves inside amid the protest.   Pressley's Chief of Staff Sarah Groh has shared new disturbing details of the riot on January 6, revealing how safety protocols meant to keep lawmakers safe didn't function properly. Groh said the Congresswoman and her staffers were encouraged to come to the Capitol early for the joint session to certify the election results before the crowds outside got too large.  'I was deeply concerned. It felt like the heat was being turned up in terms of the rhetoric and Trump’s aims to incite violence,' Groh said to the Boston Globe.  When protesters raided the building, Pressley's staffers barricaded the entrance to her office with furniture and water jugs.   Groh pulled out gas masks and scanned the room for...

    Surfers and water-skiers came to the rescue of a sailing school of children after their boats were capsized by a massive swell of 25ft 'king tides' at the mouth of Santa Cruz Harbor in California. The 12 children from Santa Cruz Yacht Club, aged between 7 and 12 years old, were taking part in a lesson on Sunday afternoon and were on their way to shore when turbulent waves caused their vessels to overturn, washing them overboard.     Water ski units from the marine rescue teams and local surfers sprang into action to save the party of 12 little boats, after receiving a 911 call from a passerby who had spotted them in trouble.  A video taken from the beach by a concerned passer-by captures the boats swaying on the waves before being knocked sideways and over, to gasps of distress from onlookers.   The 12 boats from the Santa Cruz...
    SANTA CRUZ (CBS SF) — A massive swell, kicked up by storms out in the Pacific Ocean, capsized several small sailboats ‘like dominoes’ at the mouth of the Santa Cruz Harbor Sunday afternoon, forcing marine rescue units and local surfers to pull 12 children who were taking part in a sail school from the turbulent, frigid waters. Despite a high surf warning of waves ranging as high as 25 feet or more along the coast, a sail school was in session at the mouth of the harbor when the large wave struck. “Sail school was coming in and the white water just tumbled them and they were just like dominoes flying through the water,” said Anna Ritter, who watched the boats capsize and called 911 for help. “And five little kids were saved by some great surfers.” Santa Cruz County Fire Battalion Chief Daniel Kline said the calls reporting...
    Insider Michelin-starred chef Greg Marchand recently told me about his version of a McDonald's McMuffin, which he said was healthier and tasted "100 times better."  Marchand, who runs Frenchie in London and Paris, also told me the recipe only took 10 minutes to make.  So I decided to put Marchand's creation up against McDonald's Egg McMuffin and see how they'd compare.  Marchand's bacon and egg muffin was deliciously crunchy, cheesy, and moist — and tasted far superior to McDonald's classic breakfast sandwich.  Visit Insider's homepage for more stories. Over the last year, I've interviewed dozens of Michelin-starred chefs and learned about hundreds of delicious dishes to help us get through all this extra time in the kitchen.  But it was one chef's recipe for an upgraded McDonald's McMuffin that recently caught my eye.  Greg Marchand, the chef patron of Frenchie in London and Paris, told me...
    Given the news that UFC Fight Island 7 will air live on ABC, here are three fights that would have blown ABC viewers out of the water. For the first time since the UFC’s departure from FOX, the UFC will be airing a live fight card on network TV. This card is headlined by a featherweight clash between former featherweight champion Max Holloway and Calvin Kattar. This fight is the perfect headliner for the UFC’s return to network TV simply because Holloway does not have bad fights. The UFC should have a great fight on display when these two men meet. However, the UFC has missed some chances to put terrific fights on network TV since their move to ESPN in 2019. Here are three of those fights UFC 249: Gaethje vs. FergusonBefore this past summer’s sports wave came, sporting fans were so desperate for entertainment that millions of people...

    CHICAGO (WLS) -- The Great Lakes, while beautiful, are a fragile freshwater ecosystem that needs to be protected. The mission is to save North America's most valuable resource.Climate change and extreme weather are becoming more frequent. High lake levels and erosion is causing millions of dollars of damage to the prized shoreline. Pollution is causing toxic algal blooms and an abundance of plastic contamination in the water and along the shore. Invasive species are wreaking havoc on the natural ecosystem.The cities that surround the Great Lakes wouldn't be what they are today without that breathtaking natural resource, and while many factors are at play there is one common goal: saving, protecting and preserving the glorious bodies of water and our cities that we call home."This ecosystem is huge,' said Chris Korleski of the Environmental Protection Agency. "It's just enormous, you know, hundreds of thousands of square miles from New York,...
    A new report is raising questions about Mitch McConnell’s margin of victory in his Senate re-election, saying that a resounding win despite a very low approval rating appears to be a “turning water into wine-style miracle.” The analysis from DCReport noted that going into 2020, many voters in Kentucky appeared to be angry with McConnell’s performance, pointing out that at one point he had an 18 percent approval rating before climbing to 39 percent just before voters took to the polls. Despite what appeared to be a significant handicap with voters, McConnell was able to win by close to 20 points over Democratic challenger Amy McGrath. The report pointed out that McConnell seemed to overperform in a number of traditional Democratic strongholds, winning counties he had never won before. The outlet said that the anomalies were enough to justify a deeper investigation of the voting totals. “Even as Republicans across...

    Washington (CNN)The US Department of Energy on Tuesday finalized a pair of new rules rolling back water efficiency standards on showerheads and other consumer appliances, punctuating President Donald Trump's long-documented water flow grievances in the final weeks of his administration. The new showerhead rule goes after the two-and-a-half-gallon-per-minute maximum flow rate set by Congress in the 1990s. Under current federal law, each showerhead in a fixture counts toward that limit collectively -- but the Energy Department's new rule means each showerhead individually can reach the limit set by Congress.The department also established separate product classes for residential washers and dryer units that have cycle times of less than 30 minutes and meet lower efficiency standards. "Today the Trump Administration affirmed its commitment to reducing regulatory burdens and safeguarding consumer choice," Secretary of Energy Dan Brouillette said in a statement. "With these rule changes, Americans can choose products that are best...
    The Trump Energy Department, on its way out the door, is loosening energy and water conservation requirements for a number of appliances, responding to a concern that has been of particular interest to President Trump. In a final rule Tuesday, the Energy Department changed the regulatory definition for a “showerhead” in a way that loosens decades-old water conservation standards for the appliance. The move comes after Trump has repeatedly complained about weak water pressure from showers, faucets, and dishwashers. “You take a shower. The water doesn’t come out. You want to wash your hands. The water doesn’t come out,” Trump said during an event at the White House in July on his administration’s deregulatory efforts. “You just stand there longer, or you take a shower longer? Because my hair — I don’t know about you, but it has to be perfect.” The Energy Department’s move doesn’t change the level of...
    Co-founder and CEO of Peloton John Foley has revealed that he starts his mornings by drinking 40 sips of water from his hand out of the bathroom sink until he feels like throwing up. Foley, 49, told the New York Times in a profile about his typical Sunday that he began the practice 20 years ago after a colleague told him that hydration is the key to a good day. He also revealed how he spends time on Sunday mornings perfecting the light in his kitchen with 14 dimmer switches before running on one of his company's treadmills, which he says he has crammed in his second bathroom as it was the only place it would fit.

    We drink a lot of sparkling water in this house (read: several boxes a week), which means we go through cans fast. The problem is, sparking water boxes take up tons of space. They’re bulky, they’re heavy, and they’re not pretty to look at when they’re sitting out in the open. For a long time, we stacked them in our pantry. Then, we piled them in our garage as the weather got colder so we could have chilled drinks without taking up too much space in our already-crowded refrigerator — we had already sacrificed an entire shelf just to house even more cans. I blame my partner, who is the main culprit of drinking so much sparkling water, but we knew we needed a solution if we wanted to have enough space to store food. The pantry didn’t work because it meant no snack storage. The garage didn’t work because...

    Photo via AdobeAfter a precautionary boil water notice was put into effect Monday, the City of Tampa will be giving out free bottles of water to city residents. The notice was put into effect after workers punctured a transmission main coming from the David L. Tippin Water Treatment Facility, one of the largest surface water treatment plants in Florida. As a precaution, residents are encouraged to boil their water before drinking or cooking with it. Tampa Mayor Jane Castor said the boil water notice notice would likely last until at least Thursday at a press conference Tuesday.  After the break the city also placed a ban on irrigation watering in an attempt to preserve water. The ban has since been lifted. To pick up the water, residents can visit one of four locations Tuesday from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. or Wednesday 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. Residents will not...

    It sounds like a plot lifted from a science fiction flick, but scientists have suggested permanently dimming the sun to save South Africa from deadly dry spells.

Put forward by experts at the University of Cape Town, it’s hoped the plan would dramatically reduce the chances of a water crisis engulfing the city. Fears over a “Day Zero” drought – the point at which there’s not enough water for everyone – hitting the region have been brewing for years.

    MIAMI (CBSMiami) – My what a difference a day makes in east Hollywood where sewer water was bubbling up from under manhole covers on Wednesday, flooding streets and causing a stinky mess. Hollywood officials told CBS4 all that rainwater and flooding from Eta overwhelmed the wastewater system, doubling the amount of sewage that normally flows to the treatment plant. “The operation at that facility is typically 45-50 million gallons daily.

    Have you ever tried to clean coffee out of your carpet? How about wine or even blood? It’s no easy task. Is it possible to get it out it yourself or do you need a pro? And, what about all those home remedies, do they really work? “If you discover a stain on your carpet, you want to act quickly, but don’t be too hasty. You want to make sure you’re using the right tools. Use a dry, clean cloth and blot – don’t rub – the stain. Otherwise, it might lead to a lasting stain.” said Angie Hicks, author of Angie’s list report. Blood can be one of the trickiest things to get out. “If the blood has coagulated and started to clump, you’ll want to take a spoon or a very dull-type instrument – a butter knife, something of that nature – and remove it first, and then...

    SOFIA is an airborne observatory that uses a modified Boeing 747SP to fly a 100 inch (2.5 meter) telescope 45,000 feet into the atmosphere where it conducts surveys in the far infrared band of the electromagnetic spectrum. Previous surveys had detected the presence of hydrogen on the lunar surface via hydration, however, because those spectrographic techniques utilized infrared at the 3 micron wavelength, researchers were unable to determine whether that was hydrogen as present in H2O (aka water) or hydrogen as present in OH (hydroxyl), a close chemical cousin. SOFIA’s 6-micron wavelength survey confirmed the presence of water within Clavius Crater by “identifying the chemical fingerprint unique to the water molecule,” Hertz said. What’s more, it was found in concentrations ranging from 100 to 412 parts per million — roughly 12 ounces of liquid in a square meter of lunar soil or about 100 times drier than the Sahara. ...

The knot pulled the neckline down to create...
    HUNTINGTON BEACH (CBSLA) — There are more sharks in the water off the coast of Southern California than ever before, according to the Cal State Long Beach Shark Lab. “This was a big year,” Dr. Chris Lowe, director of the lab, said. “So, even with COVID, we tagged more sharks this year than we have any other year.” In total, the team tagged 38 sharks — more than triple the number Lowe and his crew were able to tag last year. “And the aggregations were larger and stayed around longer than they have past years,” he said. Lowe tweeted his unprecedented findings and shared done video of the great white babies and juveniles swimming all along SoCal beaches from San Diego to Santa Barbara.

    (CNN)Cape Town's reservoirs have topped 100% for the first time in six years, a magnificent change in the "Mother City" compared to its dire situation just two years ago. In 2018 Cape Town was on the precipice of becoming the world's first major metropolitan area to run out of water, prompting what officials referred to as "Day Zero." A combination of strict water rationing, infrastructure changes and above-average rainfall this year in the South African city has made those memories a thing of the past.At least for now. "Having flown over Cape Town's six major supply dams during and after the drought, it is almost impossible to believe the changes in the visuals of the dams," says Jean Tresfon, a marine conservation photographer, who has been documenting Cape Town dam levels since before the drought began. "From nearly empty (total storage capacity of 19%) to overflowing (total storage capacity...

    More than likely, the kitchen is the room in our homes that creates the most waste. We are constantly bringing in new stuff, and we are constantly taking out the trash created from it. The garbage can in the kitchen generally fills up much faster than the one in the bathroom or bedroom, and usually, it is much larger. So, for those of us looking to seriously reduce the waste we create, the kitchen might just be the best room to start. Luckily, kitchen waste falls into many categories that are conducive for productive, useful waste cycling. There are lots of compostable items, such as paper bags, cardboard boxes, and food scraps. There are tons of recyclable and reusable things, like tin cans and glass bottles. There is even uncontaminated water that could be redirected into useful measures. Why if there were a plan, then there would be numerous...
    By MIKE KOSHMRL, Jackson Hole News & Guide JACKSON, Wyo. (AP) — Cutthroat trout tails and heads boiled with the surface of Spread Creek’s diverted water, involuntary spasms resulting from electricity shooting out of Jack Bryan’s handheld anode. The Wyoming Game and Fish Department fisheries technician was standing in Spread Creek’s water, but not the stream itself. Instead his wader boots were planted in a concrete sediment trap right where water enters an irrigation system, bound for the cattle pasture at Elk Ranch Flats and the Pinto and Moosehead ranches. Cutthroat — or any fish — ideally wouldn’t be in this structure or any of the ephemeral ditches downstream because it’s a death sentence. But until they were shocked, stunned and carried away in a 5-gallon pail on Monday, there they were: entrained in the diversion by the hundreds. “Holy cow,” Trout Unlimited volunteer Roby Hurley said in the boulder-strewn...
    When you think of the changing climate, the first thing that likely comes to mind is extreme weather swirling about in the atmosphere. But focus on the oceans — they ultimately control our climate destiny. The oceans contain 268 times the amount of mass of the atmosphere and can store 1,000 times more heat. The oceans absorb the heat equivalent of 5 Hiroshima style atomic bombs per second, more than 90% of climate change's excess global heating. As a result of this excess heat, the oceans are becoming significantly more "stratified," according to a new study published Monday by some of the world's top climate scientists. In other words, like olive oil and water in a glass, the oceans are not mixing as well as they used to and that has significant ramifications for many important Earth system functions.
