Details

When high speed trolling, Smith's swivel action rod holders prevent costly main line wear by allowing the rod tip to follow the line where it trails behind the boat. The line stays centered on the roller tip preventing line wear, lost fish and lost tackle. They are smart to have in your gunnels when a really big fish takes your bait. And when fighting big fish it's often smarter to leave the rod in a rod holder. Smith swivels allow the angler to follow the fish while letting the strong swivel rod holder take most of the pressure.

Notable Specifications:
  • I.D.: 1-3/4"
  • O.D.: 2-1/4"
  • Length: 10-1/2"

In-Home Water Testing: A Talk With the Creator of Tap Score by SimpleWater

In the wake of various water quality crises from Flint, Michigan and Puerto Rico, there is a growing interest and demand among consumers for home water testing. Enter DIY water testing kits like Tap Score by SimpleWater. Tap Score in particular was conceived of and launched by former UC Berkeley grad student John Pujol and co-founder and CTO Julio Rodriguez. “In 2015 we began testing small and rural communities for arsenic in their water,” Pujol explains. “We found it much more frequently than we expected, and also discovered that people in these towns greatly appreciated someone telling them what was in their water and how to fix it.

Hidden Underground Nitrate Pollution Threatens Groundwater Worldwide

For most of us, when we think of nitrate and agricultural pollution, we think of the nitrate that comes from fertilizers and leaches quickly through the soil. The effects of this kind of pollution are realized quickly, but researchers from Lancaster University and the British Geological Survey have recently revealed an underground time bomb of nitrate in rock. In the recent paper , lead author and hydrogeologist Matthew Ascott and the team quantified the vast amounts of nitrate that exist within the layers of rock between the soil and groundwater tables for the first time. They discovered that there is about twice as much nitrate lurking in this rocky vadose zone than there is in the soil—up to 180 million tons—nitrate that has been omitted from global scale nitrogen budgets.

Water in the Desert: The USGS and Arizona's Water Challenges

In a state that knows water is perhaps the single most decisive factor in its continued existence, the Arizona Water Center (AWC), part of the United States Geological Survey (USGS), plays a critically important role. James Leenhouts, Director of the AWC and a hydrologist by training, has lived in Arizona for decades, and devoted his career to helping Arizonans cope with the unique challenges water presents. “A key part of what we do is provide information for resource managers to answer their questions,” Leenhouts explains. “For example, if someone wants to put wells in a certain place in the aquifer, how will it affect nearby wells?” It's a fair question.
