Burned out on hate? Post something non-partisanly good...

(CNN) - Machines designed by a California-based team can produce, in some cases, up to 300 gallons of fresh drinking water a day by pulling it straight from the air. And the team just won a $1.5 million prize for it.

The machines, dubbed Skywater, were created by the Skysource/Skywater Alliance, a team of sustainability experts from Venice, California. Skywater machines, housed in big metal boxes, are atmospheric water generators that condense water vapor from the atmosphere and turn it into drinking water. The machines can be powered by solar energy or the burning of biofuels. Depending on the model, they can be used for households, for farming or for emergency relief efforts.

The prize, called the Water Abundance XPRIZE, was awarded Saturday by XPRIZE, a California nonprofit that runs competitions with sometimes multimillion dollars in prize money aimed at creating solutions for the world's problems. The Water Abundance XPRIZE was a two-year competition that sought to find answers to the global water crisis by facilitating the development of new technologies.

So if you can pull H2O you can pull CO2 as well right? Cool stuff.

The great Donald O' Connor. Did all of these stunts himself, no special effects.

I highly recommend seeing Free Solo before it leaves the theaters.

The best damn hipster funk band in the land!


Maybe, hipster folk is more your style?


Fine, a classic, then!

Champaign county jam 1987 (just turned 20) took it easy all day with a goal in mind. Front row for Stevie, I made it, cracked open a Bud and watched this guy for a couple hours about 6' away... Same year close to same outfit which only he could ever make look cool.
When someone I know passes this song and that concert always pops in my head.

I don’t mind SRV, but that outfit looks absolutely ridiculous on him.
