J. Balvin – Ahora

Leggo’, leggo’ [Intro]
Quédate aquí, te conviene
Vamo’ a dejar que esto pase
Y mientras tú te entretiene’
Yo me vuelvo fanático de lo que haces
Quédate aquí, te conviene
Si hay guerra podemo’ hacer las pase’ (podemo’ hacer las pases)
Yo quiero que tú me enseñe’
Todo lo que tú haces, tú haces
[Coro]
Tantas son las horas
Cuando estamo’ a solas
Que quiero tenerte ahora
Me mata si te demoras (skrt, skrt)
Me llamó tu actitud
Creo que vo’ a contestar
Ahora (sí), ahora (eh), por si después me ignoras
Tantas son las horas
Cuando estamo’ a solas
Que quiero tenerte ahora
Me mata si te demoras (skrt, skrt)
Me llamó tu actitud
Creo que vo’ a contestar
Ahora (sí), ahora (eh), por si después me ignoras
[Verso 1]
Tú te ves tan bien, pero me pones tan mal
Quédateme aquí por si no te vuelvo a encontrar
Te conviene y lo sabes, como sabes actuar
Y por más que lo disfraces yo lo sé interpretar
Si todo va bien no hay por qué pasarlo mal
Tantas son las horas que yo ni quiero esperar
Te conviene y lo sabes, que te quieres quedar
No empezó pero ya sabes como va a terminar
[Puente]
Presiento que quieres acabar encima de mí
Dime y yo paro el tiempo
Siempre recuerda que, que
[Coro]
Tantas son las horas
Cuando estamo’ a solas
Que quiero tenerte ahora
Me mata si te demoras (skrt, skrt)
Me llamó tu actitud
Creo que vo’ a contestar
Ahora (sí), ahora (eh), por si después me ignoras
Tantas son las horas
Cuando estamo’ a solas
Que quiero tenerte ahora
Me mata si te demoras (skrt, skrt)
Me llamó tu actitud
Creo que vo’ a contestar
Ahora (sí), ahora (eh), por si después me ignoras
[Verso 2]
Con confianza le damo’ hasta el suelo
Un par de copa’ y yo ya sé que puedo
Tómate tu tiempo mi nena, yo espero
Aunque me mate, sólo sugiero
No hay más que hablar, dímelo después
Baby ahora hay que aprovechar
Por si no se vuelve a dar, otra vez
[Puente]
No hay más que hablar, dímelo después
Baby ahora hay que aprovechar
Por si no se vuelve a dar, otra vez
[Coro]
Tantas son las horas
Cuando estamo’ a solas
Que quiero tenerte ahora
Me mata si te demoras (skrt, skrt)
Me llamó tu actitud
Creo que vo’ a contestar
Ahora (sí), ahora (eh), por si después me ignoras
Tantas son las horas
Cuando estamo’ a solas
Que quiero tenerte ahora
Me mata si te demoras (skrt, skrt)
Me llamó tu actitud
Creo que vo’ a contestar
Ahora (sí), ahora (eh), por si después me ignoras

Stwo – Neither Do I (feat. Jeremih)

[Bridge]
Neither do I
I say we find out, cover your eyes
Well go turn the lights out
I know you want it from the way you like to move, girl
Why you frontin’ like you ain’t got nothing to lose, girl? Take off your top, ready to fuck (girl)
Do you know what it feels like to fall in love girl? Do you ever think about me when I’m not around? [Chorus]
Let’s take off the top, go hit the club
Do you know what it feels like to fall in love? Do you ever think about me when I’m not around? Let’s take off the top, go hit the club
Do you know what it feels like to fall in love? Take off your top, ready to fuck (girl)
Do you know what it feels like to fall in love? [Bridge]
Neither do I
I say we find out, cover your eyes
Well go turn the lights out
I know you want it from the way you like to move, girl
Why you frontin’ like you ain’t got nothing to lose, girl? Take off your top, ready to fuck (girl)
Do you know what it feels like to fall in love? [Chorus 2]
Let’s take off the top, go hit the club
Do you know what it feels like to fall in love? Take off your top, ready to fuck (girl)
Do you know what it feels like to fall in love? I’m just tryna make a move girl
Get you in the nude girl
Yeah, yeah
[Bridge 2]
Do you ever think about me when I’m not around? Let’s take off the top, go hit the club
Do you know what it feels like to fall in love? I’m just tryna make a move girl
Get you in the nude girl
Yeah
[Verse 1]
I remember days when
This wouldn’t go the same before I was famous
It’s true we out here chasing bitches
Now I’m done with that
I came up and now I’m rich
I got sum’n wrong with that
But you different than these women
Got me coming back
Can’t let anybody have you
Can’t have none of that
[Chorus 2]
Let’s take off the top, go hit the club
Do you know what it feels like to fall in love? Take off your top, ready to fuck (girl)
Do you know what it feels like to fall in love? Do you ever think about me when I’m not around?

Talib Kweli – Radio Silence (feat. Amber Coffman & Myka 9)

What makes you want to attack me? What makes you want to attack me? King his dream torn from a warm womb
Formed from the clay existing
Shifting from the essence uplifting in the presence
Just drifting, gifting through this mortal coil
With mystic lessons from the sage
California spoiled a blessing
Blissed up my first breath in outer space
I kissed death in the face
No identity complex, it gets left in its place
I’m proud to say no aborted torment to my rejection
Miffed, dismayed, and somewhat befuddled
I struggled to hustle and come up when the blood corpuscle boils
I’m pressin’ issues, its business that’s mixed with pleasure
It’s plizness to play and get paid
During this clone war for dna
You should know more about the donors confessing my dulah from prenatal
I’m off fire, water, elixir of liquor, with soft or hard core drugs in my system
Sicker desire to be delivered wisdom
Pour black white sexy texture of lovers like jungle fever
Wild zebras to make this fetus brother
The son of my father, I want to hear my one Shawki
And my daughter Aja lecture selections in musical meters
In physics you should explore and visit more
Exquisite shores and districts, take a breather
Believe in your epic eye memory
You are descendant of natural leaders extended from before the nephilim
Bethlehem, even eden and mu testaments heaven-sent
Energy, books, messages read them scriptures
Look at the various sizes of giants in Egyptian pictures
Stonehenge endured the mathematics of Mayans
And megalithic structures evidence frequencies vedas
We’re just the latest reproduction created out of pure star dust And made in his image but God is greatest! I don’t know it’s still you
How can I tell if you under a spell
Did the Fake You kill you? [Verse 2: Talib Kweli]
Born this way, woke up like this
The midpoint between science and religion
Is tryna find out what the meaning of life is
October 3rd, ‘75, my birth is a blessing
Ain’t no spoken word could ever describe how the flow get better
I live on the edge, I’ll send you a postcard
Fuck a phone, I got a chip on my neck that’s a close call
Turn the lights off, see how we glow in the dark
Or we growin’ apart or tryna survive the flood like we in Noah’s Ark
We battin’ down the hatchets and we set sail
Tryna get far away from inhalin’ them chemtrails
My intel says they makin’ people out of the stem cells
The gun’s our sunflower seed – we love to spit shells
When them super soakers get let off it don’t end well
I ain’t know you like to get wet, dog, like Denzel
They hype it up like marketers, sparklin’ like a fish scale
Till’ you chasin’ a high like Captain Ahab after that big whale
It’s criminal
[Chorus: Amber Coffman]
You were the one who wants to slow me down
I’m a criminal when you’re around
What makes me think you would love me? Better pass the mic in the afterlife
If so let me spit flows
Good enough to offer to God as a sacrifice
Born again like I passed away
Castigated for being honest
Caught bail like a Castaway
Because I feel like I’m swimmin’ on an island
When I’m gettin’ introspective: that’s radio silence
When I’m fuckin’ up program directives: that’s radio violence
[Chorus: Amber Coffman]
You were the one who wants to slow me down
I’m a criminal when you’re around
What makes me think you would love me? [Instrumental break]
[Verse 3: Myka 9]
Born this way, Capricorn, L.A
On the day of January 15
Dr. [Intro: Talib Kweli]
I know, we back
We home, let’s go
I know, we back
We home, let’s go
[Verse 1: Talib Kweli]
Check it out
Born this way, the universe wasn’t formed in a day
Praise the lord and pray, we the children of God
Better learn how to walk this way
Try to walk with faith, but it’s hard
What more could I say? I feel I’m cursed, so I talk this way
Gotta write what I’m livin’ in graffiti
It’s the hood hieroglyphics
So I’m lookin’ for a wall to spray
You could picture me rollin’
You could picture me holdin’
You could never picture me foldin’
Refuse to beholden to your racist image of a Black man
Kiss my entire colon
Great mind, even though the legacy is stolen
It’s all for the silver and gold
You can tell you in the ghetto from the litter in the road
Man this middle-of-the-road shit really getting old
Which one is the Real You?

Wale – Staying Power Lyrics

Might buy me a ‘rari, you buying Foamposites
And walk around like we ain’t different
Shit, y’all just Instagram
Shit, y’a just Twitter shit, yeah
I ain’t about to tit for tat, but nigga check the map
Guess who put shit there? I be runnin’ back for a team or something
Kick return, wide-receiver money
Now, I’m sneaking burners in the club
I’m not concerned about who beefing with us
I can give ’em words, I could beat ’em up
Rap dudes, I’m Zab Judah
Hook, cross, jab, jab through em’
Uber X, I’m in a Maxima
She was in Maxim mag, she got a attitude, uh
But, I’m cool though
I’m not a little nigga tryna big boy
I’m like the outcast of the new school
Spent about three stacks on a Bitcoin, ayy
I got dick for her
You a simp, why you gotta buy a gift for her? [Interlude]
Nah really? I ain’t too deep, but I ain’t too deep
Sweet
I am the legend niggas trying to be
Went to Portland before I signed with my team
Niggas couldn’t fly on they feet
Never that broke shit applying to me
Forever that dope shit, it run in my blood like I’m sipping mud
And tired and sleep
We laughing at who thoughts, it’s quiet for me
I quietly quietly built my empire, to set afire to the rivaling teams
I’m a lion, you infusely lying
Devour anybody bothering me
Blood on my teeth
All of my queens got blood on they sneakers
All of my women be loyal and honest
I take ’em all shopping then burn the receipt
Who fucking with me? Me, Folarin
I got her, and I can outrap my opponents
And I’m not too popular, media treat my passion like a hazard or something
Y’all get the handoff and fumble it
Me, I get it and Alvin Kamara it
Simple city niggas wild with me, so you outta town niggas humble it
Gassing on beats, and I look sweet
The homies is homonyms out in these streets
You probably is wondering what do that mean? Who fucking with me? Hol’ up
Y’all can’t tell me shit
If your bitch is always on my dick
Spent about 240 on my wrist
Every time that I record, I’m lit, uh
Ask money, ask money
Ass bet, go ‘head, mask on me
Actin’ gig from Judd Apatow
It’s so funny, I’m fly from my “crashing” gig
Maxfield, tryna see how fast it burn
In the field like a running back or somethin’
I got the passion in me, just got a bag to push it
‘Cause y’all rappin’ niggas ain’t really rappin’ good
I’m gone, Folarin
I got it, and I can out-rap my opponents
Niggas do not want no smoke with me
Nicotine patches on raps and my poems
Somebody tell ’em I’m back in my zone
Olu back in his zone
So I’m back in my zone, hold it [Verse 1]
Lately been feelin’ like niggas doubt me
Trust me, they don’t got no staying power
Left Atlantic, ’bout a minute later
Every record label try and scout me
Representin’ all official niggas
Intelligent, fly, and get bitches nigga
I tell her to fly, she catch a Delta
Or she RHO, or she get to steppin’
AKA, I be speaking wreckless
’07 my Supreme jacket
AKAs at Virginia State
My second year, I tried to get one pregnant
Early bird, that was Petersburg
Now, my little bird fly to Teterboro
Halliburton full of Blues Brothers
Ain’t no Akroyd or Belushi neither
Paranoid, so I’m drinking heavy
Hearing voices, I don’t sleep heavy
Had a choice, I can turn a back? Folarin, the godbody flow
The godfather himself
Rest in Peace to Chuck Brown
He said, “Young man, when it’s your time, you’ll have the whole nation’s capital and the surrounding towns and boroughs to be following you
Well you and I know its only kinda true
It’s more like, “You shining lil dude, see see there a lot life limits about to come through, but if your run Joe, and bust loose and grind, grind, grind, them lemons are set up, you will get some juice”
[Verse 2]
And I got that now
Flex attitude made her drop that down
I’m off that brown
I’m from uptown
In the school of Maryland, guess I’m from there now
Hol’ up, yeah, I don’t care though
You an H&M nigga, a banana ho
You a lil bamma nigga with no real dough
How you got a landlord and a Lambo?

Lil Durk – Cross Roads Lyrics

You ever seen snakes turn to friends? They gon’ snake you, they not equal
That shit with Fredo got me tweakin’
They not cryin’, they just tweetin’
Ain’t no time to do no grievin’
Percocet come out my pores
You don’t feel that when they die ’til it happen to yours, yeah
But they got a choice
In the trenches, I done did it, I became a voice
See I ain’t changed but I was goin’ through changes
Pluto’d still be alive if he ain’t hang with strangers
Niggas love you when you dead, that shit the strangest
Skylar and Bella my two angels
Fo’nem at your roof like a fucking reindeer
So deep inside this hellhole, it don’t rain here
We love the same people, we ain’t got the same tears
They don’t understand me, don’t think they can hear
Spread the love (we can’t ’cause niggas die ’bout it)
Spread the love (this time they said I’ll die ’bout it)
Spread the love (my niggas, I’ll fire shots ’bout ’em)
Spread the love (too many niggas got bodies)
I’m so deep in Chicago, whoever thought I’d see France? If I ain’t have beef I think they’d be treatin’ me like Chance
Old heads cannot mislead me, they know that I’m too advanced
Even though that I’m lowkey, got killers on my demand, ayy
[Outro]
You ever seen friends turn to snakes? He spoke his mind
Nigga ain’t gotta be no gangster
Everybody with me ain’t no gangsters
You know what I’m sayin’, everybody with me ain’t no killers
Everybody with me don’t get money
You know what I’m sayin’, but we gon’ make that shit work
We gon’ put the money niggas with the money niggas
We gon’ put the killers with the killers, know what I’m sayin’
And let it get treacherous for niggas, you know? I’m seein’ this shit happen every day
That’s where we at, know what I’m sayin’
We rap about it ’cause we got, know what I’m sayin’
I see people judgin’ us, talkin’ ’bout
They always talkin’ ’bout guns, postin’ guns
They doin’ it for the money
See I came from shit, know what I’m sayin’, so I do what I want
That’s why 2Pac was so great, you feel me? Yeah it’s 9th Street man, fool a lot of shit happened there
And I’m in my feelings at a crossroads
Don’t want to go
Crossroads
[Pre-Chorus]
Meet me at the crossroads, never be lonely, meet me at the crossroads
Meet me at the crossroads, never be lonely, meet me at the crossroads
And I’m gonna miss everybody
And I’m gonna miss everybody lord
And I’m gonna miss everybody
And I’m gonna miss everybody
And I’m gonna miss everybody lord
And I’m gonna miss everybody
[Chorus]
Don’t want to be lonely (meet me at the crossroads)
Don’t want to be lonely (meet me at the crossroads)
Don’t want to be lonely (meet me at the crossroads)
Don’t want to be lonely (meet me at the crossroads)
And I’m gonna miss everybody
Capo, L’A, everybody
Nuski, Fredo, everybody
I done seen they dead bodies
And these bodies steady droppin’ but you barely hear about ’em
And they can’t take fear up out ’em, oh
[Verse]
Allah, we don’t believe in Jesus
RIP Kenneka Jenkins
Look what they doin’ to my people
Think it’s funny, why they tweakin’? [Intro]
OTF NuNu man, you know how we rockin’ man, MG-03, 72nd
So you- we on the block this early? For real, for real

George Ezra – Shotgun Lyrics

[Verse 1]
Gotta hit the road
Something changed in the atmosphere
[?]
I can get used to this
[Pre-Chorus]
Time flies by in the yellow [?]
Stick around and you’ll see what I mean
There’s a mountaintop that I’m dreaming of
If you need me you know were I’ll be
[Chorus]
I’ll be riding shotgun underneath the hot sun
Feeling like I’m someone
I’ll be riding shotgun underneath the hot sun
Feeling like I’m someone
[Verse 2]
The south [?], navigate it
Gotta hit the road, gotta hit the road
Bikini bottom [?]
I could get used to this

Time flies by in the yellow [?]
Stick around and you’ll see what I mean
There’s a mountaintop that I’m dreaming of
If you need me you know were I’ll be

Feeling like I’m someone
I’ll be riding shotgun underneath the hot sun
Feeling like I’m someone

We got too little fun
Too little that
Singing along
Along with that

Time flies by in the yellow [?]
Stick around and you’ll see what I mean
There’s a mountaintop that I’m dreaming of
If you need me you know were I’ll be
[Chorus]
I’ll be riding shotgun underneath the hot sun
Feeling like I’m someone
I’ll be riding shotgun underneath the hot sun
Feeling like I’m someone
I’ll be riding shotgun underneath the hot sun
Feeling like I’m someone

Feeling like I’m someone
I’ll be riding shotgun underneath the hot sun

Don’t we all need love? The answer is easy
Don’t we all need love? [Verse 1]
He sat in the car talking about him every day
Headed to the wishing well we’ve reached our last resort
I turned to him said, “man help me out”
I feel like an island in an ocean full of change
Can’t bring myself to dive into an ocean full of change
Am I losing touch
Am I losing touch now? He said:
What a terrible time to be alive if you’re fraught to overthinking
What a terrible time to be alive if you’re taught second guessing
[Chorus]
Hey pretty shining people, we all ride together
We all ride together
Hey pretty shining people, we all ride together
We all ride together, he-ey
[Verse 2]
[?]
Am I losing touch
Are we losing touch now?

Melbourne’s art island that’s hiding in plain sight

South Yarra 3141

Still, the new little island grew again, mainly due to it being a dumping ground for silt dredged from the river bed as flood mitigation efforts continued.By the 1950s Como Island was substantial enough that the Boy Scouts moved in and built a hall. “We need more people,” he said. They renamed the island after Lieutenant General Sir Edmund Herring (1892-1982), a Supreme Court chief justice and president of the national Scouts association.The Scouts moved out in 1970 and there was talk of the island becoming a school, but instead it lay disused and covered with invasive weeds.

CASV president Robert Lee, who is also on the festival committee, said the island was a “magical place”.He said art lovers had told him that visiting the island was “unlike going to a gallery in Brunswick Street where they’re fighting traffic and they can walk into a gallery feeling stressed out”.

Two-thirds of the public art on Herring Island is there from the 1997 Melbourne Festival. “By the time they’ve come on the punt, which is fun in itself … and walked through the bush to the gallery they’re already in a relaxed atmosphere.”Mr Fitzpatrick said on a busy day he would ferry 300 to 400 people to the island for the festival. Visiting UK artist and environmentalist Andy Goldsworthy built two site-specific works, the festival giving him the island’s only valley for one of them, and Australian artists dotted the rest of the island with installations and sculptures.The former Scouts building was transformed into a gallery, which for the past 12 years has been the venue for the Herring Island Summer Arts Festival.The festival, which runs until April 15, raises funds to maintain the island’s public art. This year the festival includes four exhibitions, the latest of which is Contemporary Arts Society of Victoria (CASV) show Contemporary By Nature, which opened on the weekend.Artists lined the jetty at Como Landing with their artworks on Friday, waiting for the punt to carry them across the water to the gallery.

Punt skipper Simon Fitzpatrick described the island as “Melbourne’s best-kept secret”, saying even people who pass it every day presume it’s just the other side of the river.”Some people have stated they’ve lived in Melbourne 50 years and never knew it existed.”Built from siltHerring Island was originally known as Como Island when it was formed in 1928.It was made when workers cut a channel through a Richmond bluestone quarry in a bid to stop the Yarra flooding houses and industries downstream.Six years later floods put much of the inner east under water and washed most of the island away. In the 1980s the Friends of Herring Island (FOHI) started removing the weeds and planting trees and shrubs native to the area, gradually transforming it into the bushy haven it is today.”We have a work day on the first Sunday of every month, and during the winter months we’re generally the only people there,” FOHI’s Stanley Barker said.Sculpture park

Robert Lee says the sculpture trail circles the island, ending at the Herring Island Gallery. “Not a lot of people know exactly where we are — just 3.5 kilometres from the CBD.” Usually when people talk about a hidden arts space in Melbourne it’s off the main street, down a graffiti-covered laneway and through a doorway behind some rubbish bins.This one is also off a main road, one of the city’s busiest toll roads in fact, but rather than walking down a grotty lane, you get there by taking a boat on the Yarra River.Herring Island is an eight-acre bushland sculpture park, 3.5 kilometres from the CBD.Most visitors catch the Parks Victoria punt which runs on weekends and public holidays from January to April, but kayakers have been known to stop by to use the free barbecues.The artificial island is home to nine pieces of public art, and, barbecue shelters aside, its only permanent building is an art gallery.

Turtle egg protection plan is outfoxing predators

Ranger Michael Maconachie gives turtle hatchlings a helping hand
Fox predation problem widespreadFox predation is a problem for turtles across the Murray Darling Basin.”The turtles live for 60 years so you can look at your population and think, ‘They’re doing really well, we have lots of turtles’,” Ms Gould said. “Protecting about 12 nests, if in every nest we could save 18 to 20 turtles, that’s quite a lot of baby turtles being released into the wetlands potentially,” Ms Gould said. “Once in the water, there’s a more than 50 per cent survival rate,” Lori Gould, from Woodlands and Wetlands Trust Jerrabomberra Wetlands, said. “So that had us a little bit worried and that’s why we’re teaming up with experts to try and find the solution.”Ms Gould said controlling the foxes at Jerrabomberra Wetlands was not really an option.”Simply because there are so many in the surrounding area, every time you remove one several foxes come back in, they all fight and the dominant male usually succeeds and we go back to a stable population,” she said. “Until we solve the regional fox problem, we’ve had to call on some labour-intensive but hopefully successful methods to try and save the turtles in the meantime.”Rangers expect more turtles to emerge over the next few months. Labour-intensive efforts to protect eastern long-necked turtle eggs from foxes in Canberra appear to be paying off. The first hatchlings — 18 in total — have emerged from their protected nests and been released into the water at Jerrabomberra Wetlands. Photo:
Turtle hatchlings have more than a 50 per cent chance of survival once they reach the water. So last spring, rangers and volunteers spent 15 rainy nights following female turtles around, waiting for them to lay eggs and then securely covering their nests with a metal grid.”When they finished laying, which took several hours on occasion, we would put the grid on and pin it down,” Ms Gould told ABC Radio Canberra.

For years foxes have been digging up nearly all the turtle nests at the wetlands and eating the eggs.Past efforts to protect the eggs with fences, pallets and cameras failed. “But when we went out and actually trapped them, we found we were getting nearly all adults at the wetlands and not a lot of juveniles which meant not a lot of recruitment to that population.

How one man used science to stop his pool feeling like a warm bath

“It’s basically a low-energy system for cooling medium to large bodies of water like swimming pools and aquaculture facilities,” he said.”It’s suitable for use in the tropics and any other areas that get really hot.”Remarkably, the device doesn’t rely on anything other than the water already in the pool. Photo:
The web-enabled system pumps water droplets at a precise size and angle. Michael Bruvel had recently built an above-ground pool in his backyard when he suffered an experience familiar to many pool owners in the warmer months.The Darwin local would jump in after going for a run or spending time outdoors in the humid build-up, only to find it was like getting into a warm bath.”That was really the catalyst for me starting to work on a low-cost way to work it out,” Mr Bruvel said.”Of course there are refrigeration systems and air conditioner-style processors to cool your water, but they’re very expensive and very energy intensive.” For most people, a better option might seem obvious: erect a shade sail to block out the sun.But Mr Bruvel didn’t want a shade sail; he enjoyed swimming beneath the stars at night without having to remove a heavy sail each time.Instead, over two arduous years he devised an elaborate cooling system using the fundamentals of heat transfer to slash his pool’s temperature. (ABC Radio Darwin: Jesse Thompson)
What makes a pool warm?To devise the technology, Mr Bruvel drew upon what he knew about the factors that make a pool warmer than desirable.By far the main culprit, he said, was heat from the sun and an environment’s ambient temperature, which will continue to heat a body of water until it and the ambient temperature match.”If you’re getting day after day where the temperature isn’t getting below 28 degrees, eventually your pool will get to 28C or whatever the long-term average is for that ambient temperature.” The size and shape of your pool is another factor.Because the water’s surface is where most of the sun’s heat transfers, and smaller bodies of water heat up quicker than large ones, a shallow pool with a large surface will heat up quickest.”It’s sort of that surface area that’s exposed either to the sun or the atmosphere that’s a determining factor,” Mr Bruvel said.”A big, deep pool will stay quite cool as well.”How do you cool it?Between 2:30am and 5:00am each day, panels of jets attached to the side of Mr Bruvel’s pool have been pumping water back over the pool’s surface.The size of the droplets the jets spray are like a Goldilocks formula; too small and they risk being carried away by wind, too large and the relationship between volume and surface area becomes skewed so heat transfer is less effective.”Basically they’re coming out of the jet at the temperature of the pool, and then as they pass through the air they take on the temperature of the surrounding air,” Mr Bruvel said.By turning the system on early in the morning when the ambient temperature is coolest, Mr Bruvel has reduced his pool temperature by as many as five or six degrees.”This pool used to be stuck out in the blaring sun and it used to get 32 degrees plus, and even with my early prototypes I was getting it down to 28.”

The inventor is fine tuning technology that will allow web-enabled algorithms to make decisions about when to activate the jets based on weather forecasts.The jets will switch on automatically when they have the greatest capacity to reduce the pool’s temperature to the desired range.”I’ve also developed a cost-calculation algorithm that can look at what the temperature target is and what the existing climatic conditions are,” Mr Bruvel, who works in air quality analysis, said.”Then you can input the price of water and the price of power, and it can develop a cost estimate for you to reach a given temperature target.”That’s just a little quirky thing I’m working on on the side.”Eventually, he said, this would allow users to learn whether it was cheaper to cool off by lowering their pool’s temperature, turning on their air conditioner, or even opening a can of beer.Mr Bruvel has a provisional patent for the product and is seeking feedback from the market.Prototypes he has lent to other people’s pools are showing signs of success.

Jewel – Foolish Games

You’re always brilliant in the morning,
Smoking your cigarettes and talking over coffee. [Chorus]
You took your coat off,
Stood in the rain,
You’re always crazy like that. You stood in my doorway, with nothing to say
Besides some comment on the weather. You’re breaking my heart. You loved Mozart and you’d speak of your loved ones
As I clumsily strummed my guitar. Your philosophies on art, Baroque moved you. And I watched from my window,
Always felt I was outside looking in on you. You’re always the mysterious one with
Dark eyes and careless hair,
You were fashionably sensitive
But too cool to care. You took your coat off and stood in the rain,
You’re always crazy like that. [Pre-Chorus 1]
Well in case you failed to notice,
In case you failed to see,
This is my heart bleeding before you,
This is me down on my knees, and…
[Chorus]
These foolish games are tearing me apart,
And your thoughtless words are breaking my heart. You’d teach me of honest things
Things that were daring, things that were clean
Things that knew what an honest dollar did mean
So I hid my soiled hands behind my back
Somewhere along the line I must’ve gone off track with you
[Pre-Chorus 2]
Well, excuse me, guess I’ve mistaken you for somebody else,
Somebody who gave a damn,
Somebody more like myself.
