There is a place on earth where clean, fresh water pours from the sky daily. Rain water, as it is falling, pours through many layers of volcanic rock, and, in the process, is being naturally purified to it’s truest form, a perfectly balanced Ph for human consumption.
No, this is not the start of a strange fairy tale. Everything in the above paragraph is true. Mauna Loa is a small land section on the island of Hawaii where this water does fall daily. Waiakea is the name of the company that bottles this perfectly balanced water. Waiakea water naturally has a Ph level of 7.8% to 8.8%, making this slightly alkaline and near perfect. Waiakea also contains the right amount of silica (30mg) needed for efficient cognitive function. Studies have shown that daily amounts of silica may protect against Alzheimer’s.
If that were not enough, there is another thing that makes this water worth the money. Waiakea supports well digging in Africa. Their efforts are centered mainly in the very rural country of Malawi. This country has close to 17 million people, but 85% percent of them live in very rural areas with little to no access of a safe water source. Native’s life expectancies are very low (men- 57, women- 60) and infant mortality rates are very high. Daily access to fresh well water would help solve these issues. Every person there receives an estimated 15 – 20 liters a day.
Bernardo Chua is a man on a mission. He has long wanted to teach as many people as possible about all the wonderful things the ganoderma mushroom can do. When he was hired as an executive of the multilevel marking company Gano Excel in the Philippines, he got his chance.
The company made and marketed a wide variety of teas, coffees and other consumables containing the ganoderma mushroom. Soon he had a direct marketing team of over a million people.
Organo Gold is now a brand with devoted customers all over the world. Bernardo Chua has succeeded in bring the mushroom his Chinese grandparents had told him about to an international audience. But he is not satisfied.
He continues to work with the top organic farmers to ensure he has the highest quality ganoderma possible for his products. He also makes sure his products are affordably priced. But Chua still continues his work. He spends a great deal of time, energy and resources educating people about the efficacy of the ganoderma mushroom in improving the quality of their lives.
According to Zoominfo, In 2015 Bernado Chua changed the name of his company to Organo. The company name has changed, but Chua is still committed to providing consumers with high-quality ganoderma-infused consumables. His direct sales model has proven to be the most effective method for teaching the world about the potent ganoderma mushroom.
The professor of Oncology in the Cancer Institute of Roswell Park is Mikhail Blagosklonny. He also takes part in the scientific study of cancer and aging. This scientist is behind the formulation of TOR in aging and the use of a cancer drug referred to as rapamycin. Blagosklonny graduated from the First Pavlov State Medical University of St. Petersburg. In 2002 he became an associate professor at the Network Medical College and later took the position of a senior scientist at Ordway Research Institute. His research is mainly based on two elements one is the cancer therapy which largely protect the normal skin from any damage, and the main mechanisms associated with aging and anti-aging drugs. He is the chief editor of Aging, Oncotarget and Cell Cycle. Moreover, he is one of editorial board of Cell Death and Differentiation and also involved in cancer biology and therapy.
Oncotarget is a journal that was formed in 2010. At the beginning it dealt mainly with issues surrounding cancer treatment and examination referred to as Oncology. However, with time it grew to accommodate other fields of Biomedicine. The issues are published on a weekly basis and they are printed once demanded. The journal is found on the online platforms and can be accessed freely. They have progressed and made major strides of including other medical fields like cardiology, pharmacy, neuroscience and microbiology. Year after year the journal has been ranked to be the best in the market. Check the journal at SCImago Journal & Country Rank.
The Oncotarget’s success is based on the qualified and passionate editors, the use of different online platforms which is widely used and the various strategies they use while publishing. The editors look careful at the manuscripts and evaluate them without looking at the race, citizenship or religious beliefs of the authors. Similarly, the decision on publication is not in any way political. The editorial team does not give any information outside the editorial board. All the information is confidential and the editors are not subjected to use the unpublished information. Another task for the editors is to look keenly at the manuscripts. On the other side peer review is of great importance since it guides the editors in decision making and to review on the work of the authors and identify where they are supposed to improve on. Oncotarget is published by Impact Journals.
Hospital Copa Star is known for a number of things, but mainly for its building. Even though it is concrete that has been used here, but there have been a lot advances in technology that have made it better. The Copa Star has made use of the Penetron System. In this, crystalline technology is used in order to enhance the overall performance of the concrete being used and increase its life span.
The hospital Copa Star aims for energy efficiencies by carefully selecting its building materials. This way the hospital is able to accumulate savings through power consumption throughout the facility. In its Sustainability Report, it cites the connection of energy consumption throughout the hospital system of which the Copa Star is an example of excellence.
As per this report, the energy consumption in hospital plants will be linked to the operation of all its systems. This is because energy usage in a hospital will be occurring through heating, air conditioning, lighting in addition to water pumping, medical equipment besides elevators. There are a lot of direct energy consumption parameters. These would include the fuel being used in supplying of electric power generators. There is a lot of indirect energy being provided in the form of electricity to the public utilities.
The architectural beauty of Copa Star is through its ventilated façade. This contributes to its aesthetic value as well as to the beauty of its surrounding community. This is also a highly practical function in terms of energy conservation. Creating an air cavity inside this façade has led to a ventilation system that helps to limit gain in thermal heat. Simultaneously it also helps to expel hot air this way. This also helps to reduce the demand on HVAC systems in order to treat outdoor air. This helps to contribute significantly towards energy savings. Read more at SSC Magazine about Hospital Copa Star.
Concrete has a tendency to crack in certain circumstances. This can lead to an intrusion of water inside the porous material. Using of Penetron chemicals helps to strengthen it by offering an alternative. This product is able to trigger a reaction with minerals that are present in concrete and form chemical structures which contain insoluble crystals. The product seeps into the concrete and strengthens it from deep inside. It also allows the building to breathe. Any buildup of vapor pressure tends to get avoided this way. The underground structures of Copa Star have made extensive use of this crystalline technology of Penetron.
This material has been able to meet challenges in this five-floor project. These challenges include having a tight space for construction as there are limitations regarding the height of the building.
