Apple Watch May Be More 'Waterproof' Than Apple Inc. Suggests ⌚️<br /><br />Imternational Business Times - 2015/04/24<br /><br />http://www.ibtimes.com/apple-watch-may-be-more-waterproof-apple-inc-suggests-1895729<br /><br />#Apple<br />#Watch<br />#SmartWatch<br />#AAPL<br /><br />Customer Tomoyoshi Fujimura sets up his Apple Watch, which is to be paired with his iPhone, after buying it at an electronics store in Tokyo, April 24, 2015<br /><br />http://s1.ibtimes.com/sites/www.ibtimes.com/files/styles/v2_article_large/public/2015/04/24/apple-watch.JPG<br /><br />Drop your phone into the drink, and it will likely need a replacement. Swim with an Apple Watch, and it may actually survive.<br /><br />Apple Inc. claims its Apple Watch is water-resistant but in its user guide stops short of calling it waterproof. While Australian smartphone website FoneFox doesn’t recommend wearing it in the shower or taking it for a swim, researchers there subjected it to a series of water tests and found it may do just fine in watery conditions.<br /><br />Apple Watch User Guide - Important handling information<br /><br />http://help.apple.com/watch/#/apd707b42a5e<br /><br />In the first test, researchers took the Watch for a five-minute shower, and it was no worse for the wear afterward. The next involved full submersion for five minutes in a bucket of water, with the same results. The testers then took things one step further, swimming with the smartwatch for 15 minutes. Though the touch screen did not work underwater, once taken out of the pool, the Watch worked just fine.<br /><br />While Apple doesn’t recommend full submersion of the Apple Watch, it actually carries an ingress protection, or IP, rating of IPX7. This means no water can enter the Watch while immersed in up to one meter of water for 30 minutes.<br /><br />That is not, of course, to encourage customers to regularly subject the Watch to swimming or deep-sea diving. But if one happens to fall into a pool, there’s a good chance it will not be necessary to fork out hundreds or thousands of dollars for a replacement.<br /><br />Apple's iPhone 6 and 6 Plus don't come with the same water-resistant features. Future iPhones may eventually be able to survive underwater, suggests an Apple patent application published by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office.<br /><br />Apple Watch Waterproof Test - YouTube - FoneFox - 2015/04/24<br /><br />https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zW5CxZioIkk
City’s Lifeguards Make Waves At Annual Challenge Event<br /><br />Lifeguards from leisure centres across the city put their skills to the test to see who would be crowned Leeds's top poolside patrollers. The annual Leeds Lifeguard Challenge saw the team from Kirkstall Leisure Centre emerge as the overall winners after a day of competition which included first aid simulations and relay races. Now in its 19th year, the friendly contest is designed to help recognise the city's lifeguards while they practice their key skills and work as a team. Held at the John Charles Centre for Sport, the event saw ten teams from Aireborough, Armley, Holt Park, John Charles, John Smeaton, Kippax, Kirkstall, Pudsey, Rothwell and Scott Hall centres battle it out. Other winners on the day included Holt Park Active, who were victorious in a rope throw relay, and Scott Hall Leisure Centre, who were the best in the simulated pool incident. Mark Sugden, centre manager at Kirkstall Leisure Centre, said: “The team really enjoyed the day and we're all very proud that they were named overall winners. “It's great that they've got the recognition they deserve and also had to chance to work alongside teams from other centres and practice their skills.” Leeds City Council lifeguards undergo National Pool Lifeguard Qualification training which includes water rescue, spinal injury management, life support and first aid. The John Charles Centre was also named the Royal Life Saving Society's approved training centre of the year for 2013. Councillor Lucinda Yeadon, Leeds City Council's executive member for digital and creative technologies, culture and skills, said: “The Lifeguard Challenge is always a really fun and exciting day that gives our lifeguards a great chance to get together for a bit of friendly competition. “But it also highlights the important role they play in keeping thousands of swimmers across the city safe each and every day as they enjoy our pools and leisure centres. “Lifeguards have to be constantly alert and ready to act at any time and they're a real credit to the city. Congratulations to the team at Kirkstall Leisure Centre too on a well-deserved win.” For more information on Leeds's lifeguard training, visit: http://www.leeds.gov.uk/sports/Pages/Coach-education.aspx Source: http://www.yorkshiretimes.co.uk/<br />http://leedsinnews.com/citys-lifeguards-make-waves-at-annual-challenge-event-3/
Water Balance is Key!<br /><br />The number one cause of equipment failure and surface corrosion in pools and spas is water. Knowing what properly balanced water is and how to achieve it can be tricky at first. Lee Joseph Inc. offers free water testing and training in our shop so don’t be scared….we’re here for you!
Today's wet weather in Perth acts as a timely reminder that winter can be a great opportunity to refresh the water in your pool.<br /><br />If your pool is showing high levels of stabiliser or calcium hardness then the winter rains are ideal for helping to reduce them without having to turn on the tap - saving you money while also helping the environment.<br /><br />If you know there a few days of rain ahead you can simply backwash your pool to lower the water level and then let the rain refill it with fresh water. Remember, when backwashing don't allow the water level to drop below the skimmer inlet or pump damage can occur.<br /><br />Continuing this process each time it rains over the winter months will allow you to gradually reduce the levels of hardness and stabiliser in your water so they will be perfect for summer.<br /><br />Of course you should always monitor the chemical levels as you go and the best way is a free extensive computerised water test at your nearest Pool Shop Group store.  The guys are more than happy to advise on the best winter maintenance and management tools for your pool and equipment.<br /><br />http://www.thepoolshopgroup.com.au
How to exercise in a chair or wheelchair<br />Chair-bound exercises are ideal for people with lower body injuries or disabilities, those with weight problems or diabetes, and frail seniors looking to reduce their risk of falling. Cardiovascular and flexibility chair exercises can help improve posture and reduce back pain, while any chair exercise can help alleviate body sores caused by sitting in the same position for long periods. They’re also a great way to squeeze in a workout while you’re watching TV.<br />• If possible, choose a chair that allows you to keep your knees at 90 degrees when seated. If you’re in a wheelchair, securely apply the brakes or otherwise immobilize the chair.<br />• Try to sit up tall while exercising and use your abs to maintain good posture.<br />• If you suffer from high blood pressure, check your blood pressure before exercising and avoid chair exercises that involve weights.<br />• Test your blood sugar before and after exercise if you take diabetes medication that can cause hypoglycemia (low blood sugar).<br />Cardiovascular exercise in a chair or wheelchair<br />Wheelchair sports<br />If you want to add competition to your workouts, several organizations offer adaptive exercise programs and competitions for sports such as basketball, track and field, volleyball, and weightlifting. See Resources section below.<br />Chair aerobics, a series of seated repetitive movements, will raise your heart rate and help you burn calories, as will many strength training exercises when performed at a fast pace with a high number of repetitions. In fact any rapid, repetitive movements offer aerobic benefits and can also help to loosen up stiff joints.<br />• Wrap a lightweight resistance band under your chair (or bed or couch, even) and perform rapid resistance exercises, such as chest presses, for a count of one second up and two seconds down. Try several different exercises to start, with 20 to 30 reps per exercise, and gradually increase the number of exercises, reps, and total workout time as your endurance improves.<br />• Simple air-punching, with or without hand weights, is an easy cardio exercise from a seated position, and can be fun when playing along with a Nintendo Wii or Xbox 360 video game.<br />• Many swimming pools and health clubs offer pool-therapy programs with access for wheelchair users. If you have some leg function, try a water aerobics class.<br />• Some gyms offer wheelchair-training machines that make arm-bicycling and rowing possible. For a similar exercise at home, some portable pedal machines can be used with the hands when secured to a table in front of you.
The Hampton Springs Hotel was built in 1908 and was destroyed by fire in 1954. The hotel was world renowned for its sulphur springs and baths known for their healing and medicinal powers. The luxurious hotel boasted lush gardens with elaborate fountains and planters. The resort had a covered pool with foot baths fed by the springs, a golf course, tennis courts, stables, casino, grand ballroom, outdoor dance pavilion, and railroad depot. The nine-hole golf course was among the first in the region. The hotel had its own bottling plant and shipped the healing sulphur water nationwide. It also had its own power plant and the majority of the food served in the dining room was grown and raised at the hotel farm. The hotel had a private hunting and fishing lodge on Spring Creek six miles from the hotel site and an excursion boat with a covered launch. From the mid 1930s to mid 40s the hotel served as barracks for military personnel testing aircraft at Perry-Foley Airport in nearby Perry. Archaeological excavations here revealed the formation of the hotel and outbuildings.

Manufactured from  a cleansed glass pearl material, the glass pearls are a new generation of swimming pool filter media providing superior water clarity  Its spherical shape results in a reduced adhesion of particulate matter, reducing backwashing requirements. This results in easier and quicker backwashing cycles of the swimming pool filter resulting is a lower usage of water and time savings.

Sparkling Water

With a small size of only 0.6mm to 0.8mm. Its small particle size allows for a finer filter and makes for less frequent backwashing of the media filter. Swimming pool sand and media filters running correctly can filter down to particle sizes less than 5 microns.

Water Savings

As mentioned the glass beads are smooth in shape and results in a low amount of friction. This reduces pool filter backwash requirements. When used properly the glass media swimming pool filters may save up to 20% of water usage requirements for backwash cycles.

Save Water

Glass Media is manufactured from glass and as a result is chemically inert. Tests of many glass media types have found them to filter to a level suitable for Australian Drinking Water Standards.

As a result of these types of technical advantages making their way into the swimming pool industry, you the swimming pool owner is able to take advantage of the various saving which the use of these types of advances allow for your swimming pool and the equipment related to it.

So if you wish to have a pool that is able to have that final sparkle, consider the use of Swimming Pool Glass Filter Media. Its inert properties, fine particle filtration and longevity of life in the pool make for a, in term long term, very cost effective solution for the filtration of your swimming pool.">Glass Media is the newest generation of sand replacement materials for swimming pools sand filters.<br /><br />Traditionally in the past the sand filter (now commonly referred to as Media Filter) for the swimming pool has used a Kiln Dried Sand. Now with increased performance requirements for a cleaner pool, and the addition of newer pool water treatments such as Magnesium Salts which can only be used in a pool which uses the Glass Medias’ for filtration.<br /><br />Glass Pool Filter Media is a 2 part filter media which consists of a course glass bead to be put in the bottom of the filter, this forms 25% to 30% of the total bead weight.

#WaterAndFoodCrisis<br /><br />Society of Engineers: How Nigeria Can Avoid Water, Food Crises<br /><br />To avoid being caught high and dry and being steeped in food and water crises, the Nigerian Society of Engineers, NSE, has announced a number of measures that must be put in place to ensure food security for the country.<br /><br />Among them are the development and passage into law of a definite and all-encompassing policy on agriculture, and that government at all levels, private firms and civil society groups must mobilise and pool resources for sustainable development and management of critical water infrastructure.<br /><br />Another is the urgent need for collective action to change existing capital outlay cycles which underfund water infrastructural development, and subsequently ensures rapid deterioration of these assets due to poor operation, maintenance and general post-development management.<br /><br />These were contained in a 19-point communiqué issued by NSE at the end of its three-day international engineering conference, exhibition and annual general meeting in Abuja.<br /><br /><br />In the document read by the outgoing president, Mustafa Balarabe Shehu, the umbrella body of engineers in Nigeria noted that the widespread folding up of agro-allied industries, affecting virtually all segments of our national life and economic growth, necessitates the initiation of a well-coordinated inventory to guide professional bodies like NSE, the private sector and manufacturers association for a visionary intervention.<br /><br />Shehu said waste water treatment, water recycling and demand management measures were necessary to counter the challenges of inadequate supply while the generation of agricultural waste and waste water was steadily increasing in Nigeria, with less attention given to converting such wastes to wealth.<br /><br />Lamenting that there was no comprehensive agricultural mechanisation policy in the country, it recommended the need for a paradigm shift from subsistence agriculture to commercial practices leading to industrial growth.<br /><br />The communiqué called on all tiers of government to facilitate the synergy between the incubation centres and local entrepreneurs to manufacture the relevant machinery for small-scale farmers.<br /><br /><br />It suggested appropriate legislation to empower research and development centres to carry out agricultural machineries and implement testing and certification effectively.<br /><br />“To acquire and transfer technology for the support of critical sectors of agriculture and water resources, there is need for fostering functional linkages (among) the academia, professional bodies, regulatory bodies and the industry,” Shehu said.<br /><br />He stated that for Nigeria to meet the water demand projected in the third National Water Resource Master Plan starting in 2014, strategies for composite supply drawn from surface and ground sources should be sustained with a quality infrastructural development plan. The master plan provides a definite road mao on water demand structure for the five principal areas of municipal water, irrigation, aquaculture, livestock and industry.<br /><br />“The reorientation of regional integration and consolidation of resources to develop the capacity that would lead to the establishment of quality infrastructure which can guarantee sustainable economic competitiveness of the nation is imperative,” Shehu averred.<br /><br /><br />He added that the stakeholders must be given a voice and real responsibility in a collaborative water infrastructure planning, development and to share ownership.<br /><br />Source : Thisday

I was in the exam center today, and I'd sculled nearly half a bottle of water prior to starting the test.  Was going good until about half-way through, and I paused for a second...  
1: Taiga
I think the taiga is one of the most seen biomes. Taigas snow instead of rain. Taigas have a bunch of trees in them, tall trees that resemble spruce trees. Wolves spawn mainly in taigas. Most passive mobs spawn here.

2: Jungle
A jungle is a very crowded biome, and the only biome to have bushes. All the plants and grass are very bright there. Jungle trees can be tall like a taiga tree, or really tall. The tall ones usually are around 2x2x25. Jungles also have ferns, and mushrooms can also often be found there. Ocelots only spawn in jungles. Jungle temples can also (very rarely) be found in them. Most passive mobs spawn here.

3: Plains
The plains are wide, flat grasslands. Often there are lots of animals. Horses and donkeys also spawn only in plains. Sometimes there can be small hills also. Plains villages can spawn in plains too.

4: Desert
The desert is like plains, but with sand.  No passive mobs spawn there. As of 1.6, water pools will not spawn in deserts, but lava pools will. Desert temples (which are trapped with TNT) and desert villages will spawn in deserts. It does not rain in the desert.

5: Snow
Snow biomes are just like taigas, but without the trees. Sometimes snow biomes have mountains in them, which i call a sub-biome that's called "icy hills". It also snows instead of rains. most passive mobs spawn here.

6: Mountain
Mountain biomes are just as it seems. (actually called "extreme hills") Most passive mobs spawn here. They are incredible, huge mountains made of grass, dirt, and stone.

7: Mushroom Island
Mushroom Island biomes spawn in or by the ocean. Instead of grass they have Mycelium. The only mob that will spawn there are Mooshrooms (including hostile mobs). Giant mushrooms and small mushrooms spawn natrually here. There sometimes can be Mycelium mountains.

8: Ocean
Ocean biomes are the largest and most common biomes. They are just flat water. Islands sometimes spawn in them. Squids of course also spawn in them.

9: River
River biomes often separate land biomes. Squids spawn in them of course. River biomes are just water.

10: Swamp
The swamp biome is a murky biome that is usually near an ocean. They have water, and they are the only biome to spawn lilypads naturally. Witch huts can be found in swamp biomes, along with mushrooms and oak trees with vines. The grass in swamp biomes is a dark murky color. Most passive mobs spawn in the swamp.

11. Forest
The forest biome is a biome that is full of birch and oak trees. Most passive mobs spawn here. Some forests can get so dark that mobs spawn at day.

EXTRA CREDIT

12: Nether
the "Nether" biome is actually called hell. Of course you enter it through the portal. They are made of netherrack, soul sand, and nether quartz. No regular mobs spawn there. There is lots of lava. Ghasts, Wither skeletons, Blazes, Magma cubes, and Zombie Pigmen spawn here.  No ores except Nether Quartz spawn here.

13:  The End
The End biome is a floating island made of Endstone. It has obsidian pillars with an ender crystal on top. The ender dragon and endermen spawn here.

To see what biome you're in, hit F3.

The desert is like plains, but with sand.  No passive mobs spawn there. As of 1.6, water pools will not spawn in deserts, but lava pools will. Desert temples (which are trapped with TNT) and desert villages will spawn in deserts. It does not rain in the desert.

5: Snow
Snow biomes are just like taigas, but without the trees. Sometimes snow biomes have mountains in them, which i call a sub-biome that's called "icy hills". It also snows instead of rains. most passive mobs spawn here.

6: Mountain
Mountain biomes are just as it seems. (actually called "extreme hills") Most passive mobs spawn here. They are incredible, huge mountains made of grass, dirt, and stone.

7: Mushroom Island
Mushroom Island biomes spawn in or by the ocean. Instead of grass they have Mycelium. The only mob that will spawn there are Mooshrooms (including hostile mobs). Giant mushrooms and small mushrooms spawn natrually here. There sometimes can be Mycelium mountains.

8: Ocean
Ocean biomes are the largest and most common biomes. They are just flat water. Islands sometimes spawn in them. Squids of course also spawn in them.

9: River
River biomes often separate land biomes. Squids spawn in them of course. River biomes are just water.

10: Swamp
The swamp biome is a murky biome that is usually near an ocean. They have water, and they are the only biome to spawn lilypads naturally. Witch huts can be found in swamp biomes, along with mushrooms and oak trees with vines. The grass in swamp biomes is a dark murky color. Most passive mobs spawn in the swamp.

11. Forest
The forest biome is a biome that is full of birch and oak trees. Most passive mobs spawn here. Some forests can get so dark that mobs spawn at day.

EXTRA CREDIT

12: Nether
the "Nether" biome is actually called hell. Of course you enter it through the portal. They are made of netherrack, soul sand, and nether quartz. No regular mobs spawn there. There is lots of lava. Ghasts, Wither skeletons, Blazes, Magma cubes, and Zombie Pigmen spawn here.  No ores except Nether Quartz spawn here.

13:  The End
The End biome is a floating island made of Endstone. It has obsidian pillars with an ender crystal on top. The ender dragon and endermen spawn here.

Your first course of action to solve the issue of #cloudy water is to test your water and ensure that you have proper sanitizer levels and that pH, #alkalinity, and calcium hardness are within the proper ranges. #hottub #kelowna<br /><br />Do you spend time testing the chemical balance of your tub water?
For the past couple of years we have failed at keeping our pool's water quality where it needs to be. This year we're buying a proper pool vacuum to clean away all of the harmful tree leaves and seeds and we're starting an aggressive program of testing and treating the water. My fingers are crossed that we'll be swimming in September. #thirdtimeisthecharm
If you're looking for a phone that's as tough as nails, but doesn't compromise on features, the CAT B15 -- which runs Android Jelly Bean -- might be perfect for you:<br /><br />Price: £300<br /><br />Verdict: The CAT B15 is water, dust and shock proof, but unlike some tough phones it boasts a 4-inch touchscreen and Android Jelly Bean software. It's strong enough to put up with a tough life on a building site, while letting you enjoy apps and games from the Google Play store when you've finished constructing things.<br /><br />Good<br />Water, dust and shock proof<br />Runs Android Jelly Bean<br />Dual SIM card slots<br />Expandable storage<br /><br />Bad<br />Very poor screen<br />Lacklustre performance<br />Unimpressive camera<br />Bigger and fatter than most 4-inch phones.<br />Full review<br /><br />In order to survive the batterings, drops and splashes thrown at them each day, toughened phones generally need to be hefty, armour-plated beasts. The CAT B15 is no exception.<br /><br />It's fat and chunky, but this heft is due to it being water, dust and shock-proof. It has a 4-inch screen and runs Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. That means you can play with apps and games from the Google Play store on your break from building houses, chopping down trees or blowing up asteroids.<br /><br />It's available now, SIM-free, from Amazon for £300. Interestingly, it has two SIM card slots. That'll come in handy if you regularly travel to another country and want to keep a local SIM card inserted at all times.<br /><br />Should I buy the CAT B15?<br /><br />If you've been lusting after a top-of-the-range Android phone to show off at your mate's house then no, move along to the HTC One immediately. If however, you're a builder, lumberjack, or anyone whose day-to-day activities involve a lot of dirt, action and general burliness, it might be the phone for you.<br /><br />It's water, shock and dust proof, but unlike some other tough phones on the market, it also packs a host of smart phone features. It has a 4-inch touchscreen, which together with its Android software, means you can properly take advantage of the hundreds of thousands of apps from the Google Play store.<br /><br />If you need a tough device for work, but can't afford to buy a smart phone for apps and games when you're not building things, the CAT B15 is a good compromise. If you only want the toughest phone for work and don't need apps, the Sonim Land Rover S2 might be a better option. Similarly, if you want a great Android phone you can spill a drink on, Sony's Xperia Z will be the phone for you.<br /><br />Design and build quality<br /><br />It's immediately obvious that the B15 is designed for a rough and tumble lifestyle. At 15mm thick, it's a lot chunkier than most recent smart phones. Its size, together with the rubber surrounds, makes it look like you've got a regular smart phone shoved inside a big protective case.<br /><br /><br />The Cat B15 is tough as nails... or perhaps screwheads in this case.<br />Its design is exactly what you'd expect to see from a company that specialises in producing mining machines weighing tens of thousands of tonnes. The black rubberised edging is offset by aluminium sides. The screwheads are showing on the sides too, which is of course an intentional effort to make it look more burly.<br /><br />It's far from pretty, so it's not going to win you any favours if you whip it out on the catwalk. Its aggressive style and exposed screwheads might just draw a smile on the building site though -- all truly tough chaps love exposed screwheads.<br /><br />The hardened looks aren't just there for show though. The B15 is designed to put up with the tough life faced by any builder's tool. It's IP67 rated, meaning it's waterproof to one metre for up to 30 minutes. Unless you're building a swimming pool, you're unlikely to submerge it to that extent, but it at least means it can handle on-site rain and an accidental dip in the foreman's PG Tips.<br /><br /><br />Splish, splosh, splash. The Cat B15 can have a lovely time in the water without having to worry about damaging its innards.<br />The screen has been designed to operate when wet, too. You can't use it underwater, but it's fully functional when covered in flecks of water. Many touchscreens aren't able to properly track a a finger when wet, meaning using them in the rain is a no-go. The B15 should still be responsive regardless of what you spill on it -- although I wasn't able to test it with wet cement.<br /><br />It's drop proof up to 1.8 metres too. I did numerous drop tests onto a solid floor and found it held up fairly well. The screen showed no signs of cracking and the rubberised edges weren't damaged. On a couple of occasions though, the back panel did pop out, along with the battery. If you dropped it inside, it's not a problem, but having it expose its delicate internals like that might be a problem when you're out and about.<br /><br />Sony's new flagship, the Xperia Z, has the same waterproofing as the B15, so if you're just after a mobile that can survive a dunk in the bath, that might be the blower to go for. Its all-glass front and back however means that it's not going to put up with much abuse in a manual work environment.<br /><br />On the edges you'll find a power button, volume buttons and dedicated camera shutter button, all of which are bright yellow, presumably to make them easier to see when covered in mud. The volume buttons are easy to press but the power button on top sits very flush with the rubber surround. It's slightly awkward to press with a finger, so expect it to be almost impossible when you have thick work gloves on.<br /><br />There's a micro-USB port and 3.5mm headphone jack too. They've both been covered by rubber seals to keep them waterproof, which makes them a bit awkward to access in a hurry. The B15 comes with 4GB of built-in storage as standard, but you can expand it with a microSD card.<br /><br />Screen<br /><br />On the front of the B15 is a 4-inch touchscreen. The iPhone 5 has a 4-inch display but of course, without all the protective casing, it's a much more pocketable device. The B15's screen size does at least mean that it's not stretching out your palm quite as much as phones like the 5.5-inch Galaxy Note 2.<br /><br />It has a 480x800-pixel resolution, which falls far short of the Full HD displays of the HTC One or Sony Xperia Z. It's perfectly acceptable for the majority of day-to-day tasks you're likely to need on a building job though. Icons are reasonably sharp and small text on web pages is handled well enough. It's at least good enough to read email instructions or urgent messages explaining that the house you've demolished should have been the one the next street over.<br /><br /><br />If you're looking for a phone primarily to watch videos and check out photos on, the Cat B15 isn't the one for you.<br />It doesn't do a great job of displaying colours though. Images and video look somewhat washed-out and colourful games like Angry Birds don't have the same vivid punch you get from other phones. Its black levels aren't up to much so contrast isn't good and there's a small amount of light leak around the bottom edges.<br /><br />All in all, the screen is very disappointing. If this was a top-end smart phone designed for consuming high-definition media, it would be a huge problem. It's really not designed with photo and video in mind though so it's difficult to hold this against it too much. It's pretty bright, but did throw up a few reflections under our harsh office lights. If you work on sites in bright sunlight, this might be an issue.<br /><br />Software and processor<br /><br />The B15 runs on Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean, which is almost the most recent version of Google's operating system. Most phone manufacturers tend to tweak the standard Android experience in order to slide in its own software and services. CAT doesn't seem to have done much here though.<br /><br />The Android interface is the same as you'd find on any standard Android phone. You have multiple homescreens to swipe through and fill up with apps and widgets. Four apps of your choice will remain along the bottom for quick access and you can jump into a grid of apps for anything you don't want on your home screens. Navigation is performed courtesy of three touch-sensitive buttons below the screen -- settings, home and back.<br /><br /><br />The Android Jelly Bean interface is the same you'd expect to find on any standard Android phone.<br />It's fully accredited by Google, meaning you'll have full access to the Google Play store. You can choose from hundreds of thousands of apps as well as stream movies, music and buy books and magazines. It's easy to operate, whether you're experienced with Android or not.<br /><br />It's running on a dual-core processor clocked at 1GHz. Like the rest of the specs, that's not going to tempt smart phone addicts to part with their cash, but it should provide enough power to keep the essential tasks ticking along.<br /><br />The Cat B15 scored 676 on the Geekbench test, which isn't exactly impressive. To put that into context, the HTC One scored a whopping 2,668 on the same test and the Xperia Z managed to clock up around 2,000. Both those phones are of course much more expensive and designed for hyper performance in every respect. It's more in line with the Samsung Galaxy Ace 2, a budget Android blower that you can pick up for around £230 SIM-free.<br /><br /><br />That's a far from impressive score, but it's at least powerful enough for essential tasks.<br />It won't handle tasks like video editing and intense multi-tasking, but it's got plenty of juice for normal use. Swiping around the homescreens wasn't slow or juddery and it handled mobile games like Angry Birds without any trouble.<br /><br />Camera<br /><br />On the back of the phone you'll find a 5-megapixel camera with a VGA camera on the front for video calling. Given the phone's more affordable price tag and lacklustre specs elsewhere, you might expect the snapper to not be much of a performer. You'd be absolutely right.<br /><br /><br />The B15's camera provided decent colours, but it suffered from image noise and an overall lack of clarity (click image to enlarge).<br />My test shot in the office was bright enough, and the colours on the art on the far wall were quite deep. However, it suffered hugely from image

A Maryland Transportation Authority police officer was operating a stationary radar on southbound I-395 leaving Baltimore when a white 2014 Land Rover passed traveling at 84 mph in a 45-mph zone.
The officer followed the vehicle onto northbound I-95, through the tunnel and stopped the Land Rover just beyond the tunnel's toll plaza.
Phelps was identified as the driver by his driver's license and appeared to be under the influence, the statement said.
Will Michael Phelps compete in 2016?
"He was unable to perform satisfactorily a series of standard field sobriety tests," the statement added. "Mr. Phelps was cooperative throughout the process."

Phelps rejects swimming comeback
It was not Phelps' first DUI case.
In 2004, he was arrested on charges of driving under the influence in Salisbury, Maryland. He pleaded guilty and was sentenced to 18 months probation. He also issued an apology after that incident.
In 2009, a photograph surfaced of Phelps allegedly smoking pot from a bong at a party.
"I'll make a million mistakes in my life but as long as I never make the same mistake again, then I've been able to learn and grow," Phelps told CNN in 2012. He also said that the incident made him realize who his real friends were.
After the bong incident, Phelps was suspended from competitive swimming for three months and one of his sponsors said it would not renew his contract
USA Swimming, the nation's governing body for competitive swimming, said it was withdrawing financial support for Phelps and barring him from competition during the period of his "reprimand."
Kellogg Co. said it would not renew his advertising contract.
"Michael's most recent behavior is not consistent with the image of Kellogg," company spokeswoman Susanne Norwitz said at the time.
At the time, Phelps admitted "regrettable behavior" after a British newspaper published the photograph. The tabloid News of the World showed Phelps using the bong during what it said was a November party at the University of South Carolina in Columbia.
Back in the water
In April, back in the pool for the first time since 2012, Phelps was close to his peerless best and raced to a second-place finish in the 100m butterfly final in front of a sold-out crowd at the Skyline Aquatic Center in Arizona.
Phelps retired after winning an unprecedented 22nd Olympic medal on August 4, 2012 and embarked on a year of travel and golfing, with little mention of a return to swimming.
But he sparked speculation about a potential comeback by re-entering the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency's testing program last November -- which began a nine-month wait required before a swimmer can again compete.
When the question of a return to Olympic action arose -- with a potential fifth games in Brazil -- Phelps would only say he is taking "one step at a time."

KSC Space Shuttle Main Engine Shop For the first time, all 15 main engines are in the Engine Shop at the same time. They are being prepared for shipment to Stennis Space Center in Mississippi for storage following the completion of the Space Shuttle Program. The engines may be repurposed for use on NASA’s Space Launch System heavy lift vehicle.  The SSME is the world’s most reliable and highly tested large rocket engine ever built, and operates under extreme temperatures ranging from -423 degrees Fahrenheit to 6,000 degrees Fahrenheit –half the surface temperature of the sun. Even though the SSME weighs one-seventh as much as a locomotive engine, its high-pressure fuel pump alone delivers as much horsepower as 28 locomotives, while its high-pressure oxidizer pump delivers the equivalent horsepower for 11 more. If water instead of fuel were pumped by the three SSMEs, an average family-sized swimming pool could be drained in 25 seconds. The SSMEs have powered all 135 launches over the course of the shuttle program, totaling 57.6 hours of flight time and another 246.7 hours of accumulated ground testing.

Swim with an Apple Watch, and it may actually survive.<br /><br />Apple Inc. claims its Apple Watch is water-resistant but in its user guide stops short of calling it waterproof. While Australian smartphone website FoneFox doesn’t recommend wearing it in the shower or taking it for a swim, researchers there subjected it to a series of water tests and found it may do just fine in watery conditions.<br /><br />Apple Watch User Guide - Important handling information<br /><br />http://help.apple.com/watch/#/apd707b42a5e<br /><br />In the first test, researchers took the Watch for a five-minute shower, and it was no worse for the wear afterward. The next involved full submersion for five minutes in a bucket of water, with the same results. The testers then took things one step further, swimming with the smartwatch for 15 minutes. Though the touch screen did not work underwater, once taken out of the pool, the Watch worked just fine.<br /><br />While Apple doesn’t recommend full submersion of the Apple Watch, it actually carries an ingress protection, or IP, rating of IPX7. This means no water can enter the Watch while immersed in up to one meter of water for 30 minutes.<br /><br />That is not, of course, to encourage customers to regularly subject the Watch to swimming or deep-sea diving. But if one happens to fall into a pool, there’s a good chance it will not be necessary to fork out hundreds or thousands of dollars for a replacement.<br /><br />Apple's iPhone 6 and 6 Plus don't come with the same water-resistant features.

City’s Lifeguards Make Waves...

City’s Lifeguards Make Waves At Annual Challenge Event<br /><br />Lifeguards from leisure centres across the city put their skills to the test to see who would be crowned Leeds's top poolside patrollers. The annual Leeds Lifeguard Challenge saw the team from Kirkstall Leisure Centre emerge as the overall winners after a day of competition which included first aid simulations and relay races. Now in its 19th year, the friendly contest is designed to help recognise the city's lifeguards while they practice their key skills and work as a team. Held at the John Charles Centre for Sport, the event saw ten teams from Aireborough, Armley, Holt Park, John Charles, John Smeaton, Kippax, Kirkstall, Pudsey, Rothwell and Scott Hall centres battle it out. Other winners on the day included Holt Park Active, who were victorious in a rope throw relay, and Scott Hall Leisure Centre, who were the best in the simulated pool incident. Mark Sugden, centre manager at Kirkstall Leisure Centre, said: “The team really enjoyed the day and we're all very proud that they were named overall winners. “It's great that they've got the recognition they deserve and also had to chance to work alongside teams from other centres and practice their skills.” Leeds City Council lifeguards undergo National Pool Lifeguard Qualification training which includes water rescue, spinal injury management, life support and first aid. The John Charles Centre was also named the Royal Life Saving Society's approved training centre of the year for 2013. Councillor Lucinda Yeadon, Leeds City Council's executive member for digital and creative technologies, culture and skills, said: “The Lifeguard Challenge is always a really fun and exciting day that gives our lifeguards a great chance to get together for a bit of friendly competition. “But it also highlights the important role they play in keeping thousands of swimmers across the city safe each and every day as they enjoy our pools and leisure centres. “Lifeguards have to be constantly alert and ready to act at any time and they're a real credit to the city. Congratulations to the team at Kirkstall Leisure Centre too on a well-deserved win.” For more information on Leeds's lifeguard training, visit: http://www.leeds.gov.uk/sports/Pages/Coach-education.aspx Source: http://www.yorkshiretimes.co.uk/<br />http://leedsinnews.com/citys-lifeguards-make-waves-at-annual-challenge-event-3/

Today's wet weather in Perth acts as a timely reminder that winter can be a great opportunity to refresh the water in your pool.<br /><br />If your pool is showing high levels of stabiliser or calcium hardness then the winter rains are ideal for helping to reduce them without having to turn on the tap - saving you money while also helping the environment.<br /><br />If you know there a few days of rain ahead you can simply backwash your pool to lower the water level and then let the rain refill it with fresh water. Remember, when backwashing don't allow the water level to drop below the skimmer inlet or pump damage can occur.<br /><br />Continuing this process each time it rains over the winter months will allow you to gradually reduce the levels of hardness and stabiliser in your water so they will be perfect for summer.<br /><br />Of course you should always monitor the chemical levels as you go and the best way is a free extensive computerised water test at your nearest Pool Shop Group store.  The guys are more than happy to advise on the best winter maintenance and management tools for your pool and equipment.<br /><br />http://www.thepoolshopgroup.com.au

How to exercise in a chair or ...

How to exercise in a chair or wheelchair<br />Chair-bound exercises are ideal for people with lower body injuries or disabilities, those with weight problems or diabetes, and frail seniors looking to reduce their risk of falling. Cardiovascular and flexibility chair exercises can help improve posture and reduce back pain, while any chair exercise can help alleviate body sores caused by sitting in the same position for long periods. They’re also a great way to squeeze in a workout while you’re watching TV.<br />• If possible, choose a chair that allows you to keep your knees at 90 degrees when seated. If you’re in a wheelchair, securely apply the brakes or otherwise immobilize the chair.<br />• Try to sit up tall while exercising and use your abs to maintain good posture.<br />• If you suffer from high blood pressure, check your blood pressure before exercising and avoid chair exercises that involve weights.<br />• Test your blood sugar before and after exercise if you take diabetes medication that can cause hypoglycemia (low blood sugar).<br />Cardiovascular exercise in a chair or wheelchair<br />Wheelchair sports<br />If you want to add competition to your workouts, several organizations offer adaptive exercise programs and competitions for sports such as basketball, track and field, volleyball, and weightlifting. See Resources section below.<br />Chair aerobics, a series of seated repetitive movements, will raise your heart rate and help you burn calories, as will many strength training exercises when performed at a fast pace with a high number of repetitions. In fact any rapid, repetitive movements offer aerobic benefits and can also help to loosen up stiff joints.<br />• Wrap a lightweight resistance band under your chair (or bed or couch, even) and perform rapid resistance exercises, such as chest presses, for a count of one second up and two seconds down. Try several different exercises to start, with 20 to 30 reps per exercise, and gradually increase the number of exercises, reps, and total workout time as your endurance improves.<br />• Simple air-punching, with or without hand weights, is an easy cardio exercise from a seated position, and can be fun when playing along with a Nintendo Wii or Xbox 360 video game.<br />• Many swimming pools and health clubs offer pool-therapy programs with access for wheelchair users. If you have some leg function, try a water aerobics class.<br />• Some gyms offer wheelchair-training machines that make arm-bicycling and rowing possible. For a similar exercise at home, some portable pedal machines can be used with the hands when secured to a table in front of you.
