What 3 important things did you learn from the article? Why are they important to you?

More than 50% of community waterborne illness events in the U.S. are associated with extreme rain. Many developing nations suffer terribly from illnesses caused by lack of sewage treatment facilities which are exasperated by climate. This is important because people are dying from illnesses caused by lack of sewage treatment. They should be treated more often so it will lower the percentage.

Many different countries do not have access to clean water while people are abusing all the water they can get. People in these countries are becoming more and more malnourished.

From 2000 to 2009 in the U.S. there were more than 22,000 cases of Legionella, a respiratory waterborne disease. Again this is causing deaths for thousands of people because the water they are drinking is not clean.

How do we limit the amount of water consumed and preserve it.

About 40 to 50 states will have water problems soon which will effect the entire country 

The water demand in Montana keeps increasing so the state should start figuring out ways to prevent the crisis from happening 

States on the east coast are more likely to have low water supply due to the climate difference.

What question do you have after reading this article?

How to prevent a low supply of water from strike the world?

Why would this article be in Business Insider, which is mainly concerned with analyzing businesses and stocks?

This article would be on business outsider because it is such an important issue. If we keep using the same amount of water, we will have a low supply.

In Chemistry class we are trying to get a 12-volt battery salt water and scrap metals. In this we could have used a series or parallel to get the volt to work. For this experiment my group and I had to act like we were on an island trapped an only had a little amount of supplies to create this 12-volt battery. After first my class and I had to work alone to create this battery to work on the 12 volt together. When I started it first I used Mg and Cu in a series to create the one volt which didn’t work. Then in the same cup I connect the two alligators to Mg and Cu which made the water fizzle. This created about 1.6 volts. I then later started working on the 12 volt with my group. After first my group and I got about 12 cups and a bunch on Mg and Cu and put in a parallel circuit. After my group and I realized that the charge we were getting was negative, we knew something was wrong. We keeping trying and trying but nothing seemed to work. While trying to figure out why the charge wasn’t working, my group and I realized that Mg and Cu seemed to work the best for us because even though the charge wasn’t changing, the water was fizzing the most. Therefore, we knew that the electrical current was flowing but the voltage wasn’t changing. After a while my group and I realized that the reason why the voltage wasn’t changing was because it was in a series not a parallel. Even though we didn’t get to finish the lab, I figure putting it into a parallel would make the vol
