Getting it Just Right
BY DAVID KERNICK
@ VOL 2
ON JUN 26, 2014
As a local surf life-saver and regular ski-paddler, David Kernick has spent many years on the beautiful local waterways or surfing the beaches. His view of the local area comes from a different perspective to most as he regularly paddles in the late afternoon light and has seen many spectacular sunsets. This passion for water and low light is reflected in much of his photographic work and he enjoys the peacefulness and serenity of shooting nature, water, and landscapes. David also loves the social interaction of portrait photography and watching his subjects develop in confidence, capturing their personalities and in particular seeing the smile on their faces when they see the final product.

The rise of agrarian society, the understanding of water chemistry, and the search for food preservation techniques for shipping will culminate in the first genomic sequence of eukaryotic cells, models for cancer and heart disease and a myriad of delicious malted beverages.
Water: The Mighty Molecule!
Rod Allen, a professional educator and water-resource scientist, describes water’s structure, unusual features, and its many key roles. Surface tension, boiling point, and bipolarity are used to illustrate some of water’s remarkable behaviors. Solubility and specific heat are especially important to the health of the planet. The importance of water as a building block for life, the current and future status of water resources, and its origin soon after the universe was formed, are included in this comprehensive survey of the mighty molecule.
