Hertz so good! Science's greatest mythbusters are on show again this week, now featuring Heinrich Rudolf Hertz.   Despite his achievements, Hertz never lived to see just how important his work was. He passed away at 36 believing his discovery of electromagnetic waves was "of no use whatsoever."  #didyouknow #science #mythbuster

Ocean acidification is no big deal right? Well, yeah actually it is kind of important. It refers to the increasing acidity of our planet's oceans over time as a result of increased carbon dioxide emissions. As a consequence, corals are bleached, the shells of pterapods and other smaller marine organisms slowly dissolve and the food webs that millions of people rely on every day are put in danger.

Let's face it, during the warmer months our AC unit can be a bit of a knight in shining armour.  Keep in mind though that this is also going to be one of the biggest appliances that contributes to the costs on your bill. Not only does changing your filters lower the energy needed to keep your place cool, you'll spend less in maintenance costs with less dust and other particles clogging up the machine.  #mythbuster #didyouknow
