Day 2 in Bridget's Corner....

Hi there....

How are we? 

On this rainy Tuesday I would really like to share this amazing video with you. This is one of many amazing TED talks which can be found on the website.
TED (Technology, Entertainment and Design) if you don't know is a conference where people who are unbelievably talented and complete specialists in their own field conduct talks on new inventions, ideas or theories. 
My parents in fact know Chris Anderson (hugely under-rated entrepreneur) who set TED  up a few years ago and made the videos freely available on the net so it's nice to see the products of his labour! If you haven't heard of it, you should definitely check it out :) It's a great way to procrastinate.

Anyway, this video is by Michael Pritchard who developed a water-bottle which can turn dirty water to clean, sterile water. It's unbelievable that this a) hasn't been developed sooner and b) that it's still not being widely used in places like Somalia right now, or after any major disaster.

The problem may be cost effective-ness but you'd hope further incremental product or process innovations could make it more cost effective, especially given its potential impact.

Serious conversation over In lighter news - my new bracelet arrived today :) Pic below of charm. This is the beginning of my belated 21st birthday. I'm hoping to collect charms from various family members and friends from now and into the future! :) Thanks to my Grandma for the first one! So I am hugely excited about it :)

Thanks for reading! :D Hope you had a great day

Bowing out xx
