Water calamity!

A few weeks ago, the water main outside of our house burst. It was a bad leak, and the gang from the council were keen to fix it as soon as possible. All of a sudden, and at very short notice, we found ourselves with no running water in our house.

There is an old saying “You don’t miss your water till your well runs dry” and for us, this was literally true! It’s not until you have no running water that you realise how much we take it for granted. No water to drink or make a cup of (herbal!) tea. No water to wash and cook vegetables. No water to wash ourselves, take a shower, have

Q. In a contest between a Brazilian free-tailed bat and a common swift, which comes out ahead?

A. Previous studies suggested the birds fly faster than bats, with the common swift being the fastest bird on record for level flight at 111 kilometers per hour (km/h), says Gary McCracken of the University of Tennessee in Knoxville, as reported in “New Scientist” magazine. Now the Brazilian free-tailed bat has been clocked at more than 140 km/h in flight, “the fastest powered flight speeds documented yet in any vertebrate - that is, in bats or birds.”

Why this exceptionally fast flight? Credit the bats with exceptional aerial lifestyle adaptation: “Long, narrow wings with pointed tips help them fly fast and horizontally, and long toe hairs may help judge speed and turbulence (Royal Society Open Science).”

Q. Are you Web-wise
