Things to Know Before You Mow

While it may seem rather innocuous sitting in the corner of your garage, a lawn mower is a potentially dangerous piece of equipment that many of us use regularly during the summer. Over 20,000 injuries occur annually from the use of a mower, largely caused by flying debris, and many can be avoided by making some simple preparations before you mow. Read the I-Safety website for additional information to keep yourself and others safe when using a lawn mower.

University of Idaho Students’ Green Shower Prototype Hopes to Solve Global Water Waste and Energy Issues

One day shortly after being diagnosed with breast cancer, Maria Horta Vorse stepped out of the shower and started to feel uneasy. Her blood pressure rose, she blacked out and she nearly died, she said, because the heat dehydrated her. “It was terrifying,” she said, and after that she “had to settle for short, kind-of-cold showers.” But it sparked an idea. Together with her husband Chad Vorse, the two created a bathing system that allowed her to shower safely while preserving energy and recycling waste water. And they realized it could solve bigger, global issues with unclean water. Read more.
