summer

1.Clean your room. Get rid of anything that you do not need in the summer. Tasks, bulky holiday sweaters, etc. Clean all your mess so you have a clean and fresh start this summer.

2. You have been in side of your home all winter long. So it’s about time you head out grab your bike and go out and explore, convince a few friends to accompany you.

Go skating it is a fun exercise use your imagination.

3. Go camping. Board several friends and put a tent somewhere. A courtyard, an open field (if allowed) or special places for camping are great places to do it. Make sure you have the proper equipment, so you will not be stranded in the rain in shorts and sandals with nothing to do. Try to set up camp next to a lake for a beautiful view and easy access for swimming. Camping and swimming! What more could you want?

4. Make a scrapbook about the summer. Purchase several disposable cameras when summer starts and upload them with you everywhere. When out with friends, take a few pictures. Buy some cheap stickers, glue sticks, glitter, etc., and have fun.

A few ways to beat boredom during your next summer! Sometimes we are so anxious to be out of school that at the end we have nothing to do with so much time free we have. So next year enjoy your summer and be prepared.

Top 10 most beautiful beaches in Mexico

 Mexico has almost 10,000 kilometers of coastline, and therefore, infinity of beautiful beaches. Some are classified among the most beautiful in the world. And it is that Mexicans are terribly darlings in question of beaches. In el Caribe, the color intensity turquoise, the reef and Mayan culture; in the Gulf, the coasts of Tampico and green of Veracruz, and intensity of Tabasco and Yucatan. In the Costa Oeste, from Chiapas to Baja California, incredible sunsets, waves for surfing and the passage of gray whales and dolphins. For all this make a list with the best beaches is almost painful and also very subjective. And sure I’ve forgotten from the beach more recondite, the prettiest.

For those who prefer the crowds, Mexico has several of the most visited beaches in the world. Manzanillo, in Colima that receives half a million visitors each year, Mazatlan, Sinaloa, and Puerto Vallarta in Jalisco, receive more than a million and a half visitors, and Cancun and Cozumel in Quintana Roo, and Acapulco in Guerrero, which are visited for more than 2 million people every year.

Personally, I prefer the quieter beaches, or at least those that are more beautiful in terms of nature. Here are some of my favorites.

Tulum, Quintana RooTulum-Beach,-Mexico

One of the stars of the Caribbean is Tulum. The white sand and turquoise waters would not be as wonderful without Maya el templo looming on the horizon. Bathe and look to the temple, or visit the Mayan ruins and see the immensity of the sea bottom is priceless. You can’t leave without taking a bathhouse, sauna famous Hispanic, with subsequent dip in a cenote and a feast of traditional food.

Mazunte, Oaxacamazunte

Mazunte, on the Pacific coast, is one of the most beautiful beaches on the beautiful beaches of Oaxaca. It owes its name to a blue crab that once was very numerous in the area. If you go, do not miss Punta Cometa, the northern most tip of Mexico, where you can see the sunrise and sunset in the water.

Boca del Cielo, Chiapasbocacielo

One of the least known beaches is Boca Del Cielo, also is one of the most pristine. A strip of land between the estuary and the sea of the Pacific Ocean, to rest quietly, rocking in a hammock sipping coconut water and freshly caught a lobster lunch. Do not forget to visit the turtle camp.

Islas Marietas, en JaliscoISLAS-MARIETAS-VALLARTA02

The geology creates wonders sometimes, as it did in this natural paradise protected by UNESCO. The hidden beach, hidden beach or as it is known, is located a few miles from Puerto Vallarta.

You can also visit the Intercultural Center for the Study of Deserts and Oceans (CEDO), a nonprofit organization that promotes environmental education and protection of the land and sea environments of the region.

Chacahua, Oaxacachacahua

In the National Park Laguna’s de Chacahua, you can find a secluded beach-shaped bay with gently sloping fine sand, where it joins the fresh water and salt water. Chacaua, also in Oaxaca, is another wonder of the Mexican Pacific. Do not miss the walk through the mangroves and visit the crocodile farm and the iguana.

Playa escondida, Veracruzplaya escondido

Forest, beach, sea and sky. That is the attraction of this beach, located at the northernmost point of the coast of Los Tuxtlas. To get you need to take a boat from Montepío, or on foot, it is isolated between two neighboring cliffs and is frequently washed away by winter storms. Do not miss the tilapia in garlic sauce is prepared in the area.

Los Cabos, Baja California Surlos cabos

Los Cabos is one of the most beautiful and exclusive destinations of Mexico, located on the southern tip of the Baja California peninsula. Many are the delights that will drive you mad, its wilderness, its reef, its tons of fresh seafood. But if anything stands in the area is because in February the whales arrive to find the warm waters of Los Cabos to mate and give birth there to their calves.

Zihuatanejo, Guerrerozihuatanujo

Zihuatanejo is a wonderful place in the Guerrero coast. He went from humble fishing village, a highly rated beach destination for backpackers and ecotourists.

Sea water desalination

A group of scientists of the University of Austin, Texas, have developed a chip that could potentially desalinate sea water for human consumption. This cold turn out to be a more cost effective method than the current ones available today, all of our current methods are very costly in terms of production and maintenance.

This method consists of running water through a pipe, the chip applies an electric charge of 3 volts which neutralize the sodium chloride ions and channel the desalinized water though a different pipe.chip

The investigators have been able to eliminate 25% of the 99% needed to make water suitable for human consumption. Yet they remain positive that they will be able to obtain much better results with more investigations, all they need to do is strengthen the capacities of the chip and this could turn out to be a very viable and cheaper solution to desalinate sea water.
