I was beginning to get the feeling that in everyday Nepal, ie. outside of the tourist bubble I'd been living in, perhaps women didn't travel on their own.... I was staying in Bandipur, some three hours from Pokhara, having decided to take the scenic route back to Kathmandu.

The Beginner’s Guide to Putting the Internet to Work for You: How to Easily Save 60 Minutes Every Day One of the most fun and useful things I’ve been doing lately is automating small processes I do all the time. It took me a while to work up the courage to dive into automation, as it always seemed like a really difficult, technical thing to do, which should be left to programmers. Luckily, there are lots of tools being created lately to make automation much easier for those of us without a solid understanding of how our computers really work. Sometimes repetition is good for us – for instance, when it comes to developing new skills. But rote tasks don’t serve much purpose. Every time I noticed myself doing tasks over and over now, I try to find a way to automate it the same way we create social media shortcuts at Buffer.

How To Turn Toilet Flushes Into Energy For Your Home [Video Researchers at Seoul National University and Korea Electronics Technology Institute (KETI) have developed a way to harness the energy from moving water, including that of flushing water in a toilet. The research team led by Youn Sang Kim has adapted a transducer to harvest the mechanical energy from flowing water. The energy is then converted to electrical energy which can be used to power up devices and appliances. How To Turn Toilet Flushes Into Energy For Your Home [Video Researchers at Seoul National University and Korea Electronics Technology Institute (KETI) have developed a way to harness the energy from moving water, including that of flushing water in a toilet. The research team led by Youn Sang Kim has adapted a transducer to harvest the mechanical energy from flowing water. The energy is then converted to electrical energy which can be used to power up devices and appliances. The scientists were able to demonstrate that a single drop of water can generate enough electricity to power an LED bulb for a brief moment. The study could lead to a sustainable system that would allow people to generate power in their homes from things that they don’t even think much about like flushing water in toilets or water running from the sink and in rain gutters.
