The Friday Bulletin November 19, 2021

Timely nuggets of information and ideas we want to share with you.

Scroll down to the search bar and put in the addresses of places you have lived – especially when you were young,  to see how much toxic air you were exposed to.

ProPublica spent two years creating this detailed map of cancer-causing industrial air pollution. It goes down to the neighborhood level.  Just put in the address you want to check out.  They identified over 1,000 toxic hot spots across the country.

I have used the Jacquie Lawson website for e-cards for years.  Now there is a Jacquie Lawson Coloring app.  Choose from the hand-drawn images and color in your image using specially prepared color palettes and tools.  Send it to a friend, turn it into a custom jigsaw puzzle, or just save it and move onto a new image. The app is free for a certain number of images, subscribing will give you more choices.

CrazyCap is a UV bottle cap purifier that removes viruses and bacteria from water sources with a touch of a button.  It is better than other water purifiers because of its lightweight construction, so you can take it everywhere.  It is great to travel with.  It uses UV light to dismantle the DNA of disease-causing contaminants. The bottle and the cap are durable, insulated, sealed and waterproof.  The cap purifies water in 60 seconds and the light can be used to clean surfaces that might also be contaminated.  Its charge lasts for at least a week.

Every four hours the UV rays in the cap activate automatically to keep your water 99.9996% fresh and clean, and the bottle free from mold, mildew, odors, and bacteria.  One drawback is that the cap only fits on these 17 oz or 25 oz. bottles.

It comes in 19 colors and prices range from $49.95 to $84.99 depending on the size and color.

I really enjoy the Instagram feed from a marketing agency called Wonderlust Collective.  They find the most amazing scenes from around the world that are jaw-droppingly unique and spectacular.  Most are very short videos, some are photographs.  Check it out on Instagram @wonderlustcollective. Here is the collection on their website.
