This is a fun chemistry article from io9. Seems some scientists from the University of Utah, under the right conditions, got water to sink to well below 32° while still in liquid form. Follow the above link to learn more.

charity: water - Google+
Charity: water is a non-profit organization bringing clean water to people in developing nations.
I love this cause. I see no better way to help the world then to give water to the people who need it.

Wow what a cool little device. I'm glad I have never had the need for such a gadget but in a pinch and surviving during a disaster this sure would be handy. The only problem is still getting this in the hands of people who need them. Would like to hear peoples thoughts on it.

To reduce waste generated by industries & households I truly believe that it all comes down to the individual. If that change can happen inside the household it will percolate into society and make a real difference. Although this may be a little out of the box, I think a good place to start is DIY house work and in the garden. If a family can truly understand the work and process of growing organic food not just buying organic food and how to make use of supplies to get a project done, a lot more thought goes into what you use and what you waste. In the mantra of reduce, reuse and recycle, often the reuse is overlooked. Change has happened in community and household recycling in the US and reducing energy waste has been building speed due to the economy, however little movement seems to have taken place on reusing what you have. A great example is water, strides have been made in reducing water flow to cut waste, but reusing still has not caught on. Washing your car entails first getting treated water to you, then send it back down the drain where a waste water plant has to treat it to put it into the lake. From there, at some point another plant has to treat it again to send it back to consumers. If possible you can cut some of that by washing you car parked on the lawn and not use a harmful soap. Lots of tips on how to start can be found at sites like lifehacker.com and instructables.com.

Now this is cool little product. It has been making the rounds on the tech blogs the last couple of days. This simple radio is powered by the running water from a shower. It is said to fit most shower sprayers. No replacing batteries no recharging.
