Their innovation? Using NASA-inspired technology to clean up lead-contaminated water in schools for fellow students using a two-stage filtration jar, designed to filter the water and remove impurities.
The Winners are Announced!
We have some great news for anyone who followed the progress of these young scientists!
The winners have now been announced and we’re thrilled that Bria Snell, India Skinner, and Mikayla Sharrieff were awarded the second prize in the finals of the competition in the Grade 9 -12 category!
At Tyent, we’re not just about alkaline water and water ionizers – we also like to keep abreast of breaking water news, as well as applauding achievements.
With that in mind, we’re happy to pass on the news that the US Water Alliance has announced the winners of the US Water Prize 2018!
One Water, Six Winners
Presented at the 2018 One Water Summit, which draws together 875 key water leaders from around the country, the prestigious award recognizes outstanding efforts in the development of sustainable solutions to the challenges facing America’s water network.
Winners are drawn from the public and private sectors, as well as recognizing individual achievements, such as that of Louisville …
Do you find that the summer heat leaves you struggling to keep your cool in the sun?
We hear you – which is why we recommend drinking Tyent alkaline water from one of our water ionizers!
Water ionizers have all kinds of tricks up their sleeve to help you beat the heat as the summer temperatures rise. What’s more, you’ll love every one of the benefits that a water ionizer can provide you, such as:
Cooling Facial Spritz
If you feel like you’re melting during the summer months, keep a spray bottle of pH balanced ionized Tyent alkaline water in the refrigerator to spritz on your face …
Everyone gets a bad night’s sleep now and then. But, did you know that every time you get less than seven hours of sleep, you enter a state of sleep deprivation?
The less rest you get, the more severe the effects of sleep deprivation become.
While some of the symptoms of sleep deprivation are obvious, there are other symptoms that you may not have considered. The good news is that improving your sleep environment and sleeping habits can help you get the rest you need!
What Does Sleep Deprivation Look Like?
Some signs of sleep deprivation are obvious like sleepiness, fatigue, and frequent heavy blinking, while other symptoms like appetite changes are more difficult to recognize.
So, we recently talked about the symptoms that young healthy women experience because of dehydration, but what about the dehydration symptoms found in men?
The Difference Between Men and Women
The clinical trials that we mentioned in our last blog post were carried out on both men and women, but the results were published separately. Interestingly, the men in this fascinating study showed several similarities to the women’s study, but also a couple of surprising differences.
Just like in the women’s clinical test conditions, the men were young, healthy and fairly active. The test results of mildly dehydrated males were compared to the results of fully hydrated test subjects.
Be honest…have you been a little snappy with anyone lately? Maybe you felt your patience being stretched a little bit or you felt as though you can’t concentrate on an important task? Dehydration in women is a big problem!
Mood Control and Mental Focus
If you’ve encountered low-key symptoms relating to your mood or cognitive abilities, you could try drinking a little more water – particularly hydrogen-rich alkaline water from Tyent water ionizers.
A fascinating study from the University of Connecticut Human Performance Laboratory found that even mild dehydration causes headaches, lack of mental focus, and the ability to control our mood.
“Our thirst sensation doesn’t really appear until we are 1% or 2% …
The results of the nationwide survey confirm that carbonated soda continues to decline, marking a further loss in soda’s market share for the 13th consecutive year.
More and more people ditching sugary, chemical-laced soda for healthier beverages is positive news in many respects. Drinking water is obviously great, as there’s no better way to hydrate – but this article should be read with a cautionary footnote.
The increased consumption of bottled water is almost certainly linked to the constant news stories about …
What’s the newest advancements in water technology? Can we talk about cacti for a moment? Those iconic, prickly stalwarts of countless movies and cartoons depicting dry, airless deserts are amazing things and we don’t use the word lightly. Like any other living thing, cacti need water to live. As they usually live in parched, arid conditions, cacti have developed incredible systems in order to survive.
Those prickles are actually leaves, modified to prevent roaming animals from eating the plant, but also to conserve water. Their roots are shallow but spread widely, in order to grab as much rainfall as they can, given the opportunity. Some varieties of cacti can soak up 200 gallons of …
Water science is more advanced than ever before. You might have noticed in the news that scientists have made a breakthrough in identifying a way to separate the two types of water molecule for the first time.
Remember This From School?
Two types of a water molecule? Yes! To briefly revisit our high school chemistry notebooks on water science, water is comprised of two hydrogen atoms and a single, lone oxygen atom, forming a kind of V-shape.
Maybe Not This…
Every single water molecule on the planet is either a para-water molecule or an ortho-water molecule. To distill vast amounts of complex particle physics into the briefest of summaries, the difference is that the …
