The alternative to a message in a bottle.

Middle schoolers launched a boat from New Hampshire in 2020. It was found in Norway 462 days later.

A miniboat built by fifth graders took to the seas on October 25, 2020, charging off into the Gulf Stream for its maiden voyage. That voyage would take 5.5-foot-long Rye Riptides over 8,000 miles from home -- all the way to the coast of Norway after 462 days at sea....
Cheers.

Old Dick still has it in him. ;-)

Dick Van Dyke, 96, dances in Valentine’s Day video with much-younger wife.

It looks like you can't keep the old boy down. :-)

Just heard actress Sally Kellerman past away from heart failure at 84 years old.
I’ll best remember her for playing “Hot Lips” on M.A.S.H.

A box of human heads was stolen from a truck in Denver on Thursday. The heads were being transported for scientific research by a company called Science Care, which provides cadavers. The truck was reportedly broken into at around 11 a.m. in Denver's Central Park neighborhood.

Sir Ernest Shackleton’s ship the Endurance has been located.

Ernest Shackleton’s lost ship Endurance discovered in Antarctica.

The wreck of Sir Ernest Shackleton’s ship Endurance has finally been found off the coast of Antarctica 107 years after it sank.

The lost ship of the Anglo-Irish explorer had not been seen since it was crushed by ice and sank in the Weddell Sea on November 21, 1915.

Last month, the Endurance22 Expedition set off from Cape Town in South Africa on a mission to find the vessel - one month after the 100th anniversary of Sir Ernest’s death, The Sun reports.

And Endurance was finally spotted on Saturday at a depth of 3008 metres and some six kilometres south of the position recorded by the ship’s Captain Frank Worsley, according to the Falklands Maritime Heritage Trust.

Even though the wreck has been sitting in water for more than a century, the expedition’s director of exploration said Endurance was “by far the finest wooden shipwreck” he has ever seen.

Mensun Bound, who has now fulfilled a dream ambition in his near 50-year career, said: “We are overwhelmed by our good fortune in having located and captured images of Endurance.

“This is by far the finest wooden shipwreck I have ever seen.

“It is upright, well proud of the seabed, intact, and in a brilliant state of preservation. You can even see ‘Endurance’ arced across the stern, directly below the taffrail.

“This is a milestone in polar history.”...
Cheers.

EPA Issues Emergency Orders to Four Mobile Home Parks in Thermal, Calif., to Ensure Drinking Water is Safe

THERMAL (March. 22, 2022) - The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has issued emergency orders under the Safe Drinking Water Act (SDWA) to four mobile home park water systems, requiring the mobile home park owners to comply with federal drinking water safety requirements and to identify and correct problems with their drinking water systems that present a danger to residents. The mobile home parks -- Arellano Mobile Home Park, Castro Ranch, Gonzalez Mobile Home Park, and Sandoval Mobile Home Park -- are all located on the Torres Martinez Desert Cahuilla Indians’ Reservation in California. None of the water systems were previously registered with EPA and will now be required to comply with SDWA regulations.

"These emergency orders support EPA’s larger effort in the Eastern Coachella Valley to ensure all drinking water systems comply with SDWA and provide safe drinking water,” said Martha Guzman, EPA’s Regional Administrator for the Pacific Southwest. “Mobile home park owners and all levels of government must protect the health of residents and comply with federal law.”

Today’s announcement applies to four separate water systems, which EPA inspected and sampled in November 2021. The systems' current source of drinking water is groundwater that has naturally occurring arsenic. Arsenic is a known carcinogen and drinking high levels over many years can increase the chance of lung, bladder, and skin cancers, as well as heart disease, diabetes, and neurological damage. The regulatory Maximum Contaminant Level (MCL) for arsenic in drinking water is 10 parts per billion (ppb).

Based on the sample results, all the systems are currently serving water that exceed the arsenic MCL:

Arellano Mobile Home Park: The system serves approximately 26 residents and has arsenic levels ranging from 14 ppb to 16 ppb.

Castro Ranch: The system serves approximately 40 residents and has arsenic levels ranging from 18 ppb to 19 ppb.

Gonzalez Mobile Home Park: The system serves approximately 40 residents and has arsenic levels ranging from 28 ppb to 29 ppb.

Sandoval Mobile Home Park: The water system serves approximately 37 residents and has arsenic levels ranging from 15 ppb to 17 ppb.

Under the terms of EPA’s emergency orders, the owners of Arellano Mobile Home Park, Castro Ranch, Gonzalez Mobile Home Park, and Sandoval Mobile Home Park are required to:

provide at least one gallon of drinking water per person per day at no cost for every individual served by the system;
submit and implement an EPA-approved compliance plan to reduce arsenic below the MCL; and
properly monitor the systems’ water and report findings to EPA.


EPA will continue to oversee the systems’ efforts to follow SDWA requirements and may levy civil penalties if the park owners fail to meet the compliance provisions in the emergency orders.

The Torres Martinez Desert Cahuilla Indians have no direct control or ownership of the water systems. EPA works closely with the Tribe and has consulted their leadership about the violations.

Arsenic, ugh. Here it's Calcium Carbonate which is pretty harmless by comparison, though not perfectly, it treats battery problems when the water is hot.

Thankfully drinking water (and water to make my beer) here comes from our rainwater tanks.

Fish, frogs, platypus and turtles all have sex in our town water that's pumped up from the river.

Cheers.

Hey! If you've got hopping happy frogs, then that sounds good and cleanly healthy for the townsfolk.

Until the farming run-off flushes down from upstream...?
