Squaw Valley and the Water Situation

Squaw Valley has been having a situation with the water on the mountain. They have not had water that was potable since October and, as the season for skiing gets closer, they have released a statement that gives visitors an update on what they can expect with the water at the resort in the coming months. They want to make sure that the people who are visiting know what is going on with the water and what they will be able to do while they are visiting the resort. This is something that they feel is necessary to make sure that everyone is as informed as possible.

During the summer months, Squaw Valley made the decision to upgrade one of their water filter systems. This is something that they thought would be a great addition to the resort and something that would make things even better for the guests. It would have worked great if they had not got a crippling amount of rain during the fall months. The large amount of rain put the new system on overload and it failed because it could not handle the pressure that it was under to pump the water through the resort. This led to the water becoming compromised. The resort is still working to fix this problem.

Since there is no water that the restaurants can use to be able to cook or even make food, the restaurants at the resort are not open. For people who are hoping to enjoy the cuisine, the restaurants should be reopened as Squaw Valley gets the water problem corrected and as things get back to their normal function at the resort. This is something that is not expected to last throughout the entire ski season and will be corrected at some point soon. Placer County made the recommendation that the resort do this to help protect the guests who come there.

Guests who want to eat while they are skiing or snowboarding can still have a good time, though. There are plenty of vending options that are around the resort and there are restaurants just outside of the resort. While Squaw Valley does not want to send people to restaurants when they have their own, they know that their guests will be safe eating there. Placer County says that the restaurants close by are not affected by the water problems.

The great thing about the situation is that Squaw Valley was still able to make snow despite the water problems. This means that the resort will be open. It will be fully operational aside from the restaurants and guests can enjoy all of the options that are available at the resort. The skiing and snowboarding functions will not be affected by the water problems. There is not expected to be any problems with the water that was used to make the snow because of the way that it is not used for people to be able to eat or drink with that type of water.

The Lung Institute Utilizes Breakthroughs In Stem Cell Research To Treat Chronic Disease

Stem cells are considered to be the building blocks of all living things. Sometimes called mother cells, stem cells have the ability to divide and create new cells, these cells are referred to as daughter cells. While some daughter cells become new stem cells, others become specialized cells that perform certain processes in the body. Blood cells, brain cells, bones, and the muscles of the heart are all comprised of different types of cells that were all generated from stem cells.

Many cutting edge medical technologies utilize stem cells in the treatment of diseases such as cancer, Parkinson’s disease, diabetes, heart disease, and cerebral palsy. The Lung Institute has found a way to use stem cells that allows patients to breathe easier. The lung institute will take a sample of the patient’s bone marrow or blood. The stem cells are separated from the sample and returned to the patient’s bloodstream intravenously. The stem cells are directed to the patient’s heart, courtesy of the IV. The beating of the heart forces the stem cells into the patient’s lungs, where they will remain. The stem cells begin to replicate which reduces the amount of inflammation in the lungs and promotes natural healing. According to BCM’s research, patients suffering from emphysema, COPD, Chronic Bronchitis, interstitial lung disease, pulmonary fibrosis, pneumoconiosis, and bronchiectasis have experienced positive results after being treated with stem cells.

With locations in Tampa, Nashville, Scottsdale, Pittsburgh, and Dallas the Lung Institute’s mission is to help patients across America, that suffer from chronic lung diseases, to live a comfortable, more fulfilling life. If you’ve been diagnosed with a respiratory illness and would like a free consultation to discuss a variety of treatment options, please visit the Lung Institute’s website or via

The Research That Helped Make Evolution of Smooth a Success

Evolution of Smooth gained notoriety as a new beauty product when celebrities such as Miley Cyrus, Taylor Swift and Britney Spears were seen using it. While this adorable little sphere is usually associated with beauty products, as a lip balm it actually falls into the category of oral care. The choice to market the product to millennials was the final step in a long process of research. The team that co-founded EOS consisted of Sanjiv Mehra, who had spent years working with consumer packaged goods and Craig Dubitsky and Jonathan Teller both of whom worked with start-ups.

Changing the Face of Lip Care

Even though Craig Dubitsky left the company before EOS lip balm launched their revolutionary new lip balm, this team had conducted research into the line of oral care products. What struck them as a major point for change was the fact that lip balm products had not changed their packaging or basic ingredients for several decades. They felt this market was ripe for change. Rather than look at lip balm as a generic product like toothpaste, Mehra and Teller decided to conduct some research into the types of beauty products used by women. This gave them the information they needed to get an edge on the established brands already producing lip balms.

In an online article Sanjiv Mehra talks about the research his team conducted and the processes that led them to develop a new type of container for lip balm. Capitalizing on what they had learned from their consumer research they decided to make the container and balm appeal primarily to women. This was accomplished by creating a spherical container in assorted pastel shades. The lip balm also came in different colors as well as flavors. Once the company got their product into stores the lip balm became an instant success with young people everywhere.
