There’s Water and There’s Water
Health
Monday, 26 September 2016 20:54
Scottsdale, Arizona, September 2016—Most of those interested and involved in the enrichment afforded them from adopting a healthy lifestyle realize that hydration is a key ingredient in that equation. But when considering all the bottled waters available in today’s marketplace, two problems emerge: They’re either too expensive, contain bells and whistles that cannot be substantiated, or adopt a marketing approach based in part on the importance of pH levels.

Cost is a no-brainer, but the bells & whistles concern is another matter. The Alkaline Water Company (AWC), was, if we understood their pitch correctly, brought into being the importance not only of hydration, but of drinking water that has a ‘balanced’ pH. Their product is called Alkaline88—a lifestyle creation that reportedly delivers a refreshing and economical way to achieve maximum hydration while maintaining and benefitting from a balanced pH.

Bio-Based

Jefferson City, Missouri, September 2016—And those words are: Engineered Composites.

As identified, an engineered composite is a combination of polymers and resins, mixed with marble or granite chips and a recyclable such as glass, and created in a mold made special for the job involved, which soon becomes part of someone’s kitchen or bath.

Exceptionally beautiful, almost impervious to damage—and thus destined for a long life, engineered composites bring enormous possibilities to the table (maybe even the table itself!) Plus, it carries with it a statement about the environment and about the home or office owner who is having it made.

This means that it most surely will help protect communities in the eastern U.S. from smog-forming pollution that crosses state lines and will help states meet the 2008 air quality standards for smog, or ozone.

The CSAPR Update will continue to reduce emissions of nitrogen oxide (NOx) from power plants that contribute to downwind ozone problems in the eastern U.S.

Vaughan, Ontario, Canada, August 2016—The word “artisanal” essentially describes
a person who can do something with great skill and ability. But it seems to be used primarily these days to describe those special breads, the demand for which has grown immensely in just the past few years.

The Coming of Sustainable Restaurants
Health
Monday, 26 September 2016 20:00
Most Everywhere, September 2016—When most of us frequent a restaurant, we aren’t worried about what might happen to the chicken bones left on our plates, or better yet, how that gourmet chicken was raised. We don’t ask ourselves if the chicken we just consumed was treated humanely or if fields were cleared to grow feed for it to grow. We don’t wonder how much fuel was burned transporting it from farm to restaurant.

And those running the restaurant don’t usually offer this information without prodding (few do, to be fair). But with the birth of sustainable restaurants, all that may soon change.

San Diego, California, August 2016— Hold the top sirloin, the fried chicken and the BBQ. An analysis by one of the world’s largest providers of shelf-stable seafood has suggested that residents of a number of non-coastal cities known for their traditional meat-eating ways may actually prefer salmon.

The internal analysis, conducted by Chicken of the Sea in honor of the second annual National Salmon Day on October 8, has named 10 markets as the “Top Salmon Cities” in the United States. Local residents in these markets eat more fresh and shelf-stable salmon per person than their counterparts in other U.S. cities. As a result, they also have the potential to eat more salmon or are more likely to try new salmon products, prepare salmon recipes or serve this super seafood.
