the WaterWheel — Wello Water In September 2011, the Wello team arrived in India with the goal of answering one big question: “How might we improve the experience of collecting, storing, and using water?” Over the course of the past 15 months, we’ve interviewed over 1500 community members, practitioners and experts, spent countless hours designing and prototyping in the field, and carried hundreds of liters of water. We developed a wide range of concepts and designs in collaboration with the WaterWheel’s intended users, identified the features that were most important to them, and developed a prototype. We’re thrilled to introduce you to the WaterWheel 2.0! It’s…CONVENIENT.

Why the Dutch don't wear helmets One of the perennial topics of controversy in the bicycling community is helmets, and the controversial issue is not about which color is prettiest. I won't spend too much time on the backstory, but the controversy is whether or not helmets should be a must (for their skull & brain protection benefits) or left at the shop (because they inhibit bicycling, which results in less bicycling, which makes bicycling less safe). "Must" could mean a legal requirement, or it could simply mean a personally imposed must – it depends on the conversation. I used to be the director of a nonprofit that was primarily focused on promoting and supporting bicycling in the greater Charlottesville area.

Gandhi Peace Award Medallion of the Gandhi Peace Award The Gandhi Peace Award is an award and cash prize presented annually since 1960 by the US NGO Promoting Enduring Peace to individuals for "contributions made in the promotion of international peace and good will." It is named in honor of Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi[1] but has no explicit connection to Mohandas Gandhi or any other member of the Gandhi family. The 2014 Award is to be presented to Medea Benjamin on 16 April at the United Church on the Green in New Haven, Connecticut, USA. Since 1960, when the first Award was received in person by Eleanor Roosevelt, the Award has been presented to "peace heroes" who, in the view of Promoting Enduring Peace, have exemplified the courage of nonviolent resistance to abusive power, armed conflict, and violent oppression. The Award itself is symbolized by a heavy medallion and a certificate with an inscription summing up the recipient's work.

NOTE: Do NOT bullet-point your Reference Page (we have displayed it this way to make it easier for visitors to locate the citations), and remember to format the citations in a “hanging paragraph” style.

10 Search Engines to Explore the Invisible Web No, it’s not Spiderman’s latest web slinging tool but something that’s more real world. Like the World Wide Web. The Invisible Web refers to the part of the WWW that’s not indexed by the search engines. Most of us think that that search powerhouses like Google and Bing are like the Great Oracle”¦they see everything. Unfortunately, they can’t because they aren’t divine at all; they are just web spiders who index pages by following one hyperlink after the other. But there are some places where a spider cannot enter.
