Don't Be In Denial About Your Water

"Barb Sadleir" (2019-10-08)

This article presents an overview on the importance of water treatment today compared to the dangers of untreated water in the past. Read on to learn more. The Nile is the largest source of water in Egypt and for the ancient Egyptians it was also the only source of water to bathe in, drink from and was used to irrigate crops and farmland. Thanks to water treatment plants, we can now turn on the taps and rest assured that not only does our water look pure and clean but it is pure, clean and parasite free. We probably take it for granted, in fact, and never think twice about bathing in it, swimming in it, drinking it or cooking with it. But according to the Environmental Protection Agency, regulating our water to keep it clean has taken an act of congress to accomplish. The Safe Drinking Water Act was passed in 1974 with the goal to ensure that all water was safe to drink by regulating the sources of our public water supply and is upheld under the umbrella of the EPA. Water can be contaminated in several different ways including human activity or animal activity. Insecticides from farming can make their way into the soil and into the ground water. Improperly disposed of human or animal waste can seep into the ground water and eventually the main water supply. Without the EPA regulating and testing our water supply we would be exposed to a wide variety of harmful toxins and, like the ancient Egyptians, we would be completely in denial about the whole thing. According to the EPA, water treatment plants process 34 billion gallons of water every day to protect us from parasites, poisons and toxins that could kill us or make us sick if we consumed the untreated and unpurified water. Despite what some consumers may think, we don't have an endless supply of clean water.

5:12 The Surface Duo marks Microsoft's foray back into the world of smartphones after roughly 20 years trying -- and failing -- to position Windows as the phone OS of choice. Opting to make an Android phone now is Microsoft's admission that it's unlikely to make an operating system that powers the bulk of the world's smartphones -- but it still needs to be a part of the mobile world. Instead of controlling every aspect of the device, Microsoft has to be content with its current mission: Getting Office and its other services into as many places as it can, while using artificial intelligence to make everything smarter. Creative Strategies analyst Carolina Milanesi said. Microsoft's move comes at a time when it's getting harder for companies to sell pricey smartphones. There are really only three major players in smartphone hardware today -- Samsung, Huawei and Apple -- and even those companies have struggled to spur interest in their highest-end devices. People are increasingly buying less-expensive models and holding onto them for years. 50 less than the initial selling price of its predecessor, 2018's iPhone XR.

And Samsung has been expanding its cheaper A Series offerings around the globe. It remains to be seen whether productivity, two screens -- and the Surface brand -- are enough to woo phone buyers away from Samsung and other handset makers. At least right now, Microsoft may not even care how many Surface Duos it sells. Its move isn't about one phone. Microsoft, which has long dominated software for PCs, never anticipated how important smartphones would become and how consumers would really use them: with their fingers on touchscreens. For some people, phones -- not Windows PCs -- became their primary means of accessing the internet. That was exactly what Steve Jobs tried to fix when Apple built the iPhone. Introduced in 2007, the first iPhone featured a full touchscreen and software designed specifically to take advantage of that interface. It was a mobile phone, a music player and an Internet device that fit in your pocket.
