LOS ANGELES -- The Los Angeles Department of Water and Power (LADWP) began covering the Ivanhoe Reservoir this morning with floating black plastic balls known as Shade Balls. At a brief ceremony, Los Angeles City Councilmember Tom LaBonge joined LADWP CEO & General Manager David Nahai and Department personnel on-site to toss the first Shade Balls into the reservoir. Thereafter, LADWP crews opened bales of the remaining 400,000 balls and released them en masse into the reservoir.
Said Mr. Nahai, "These balls will shade the water's surface, helping to prevent a sunlight-triggered chemical reaction with the treated water, thereby ensuring its safety. Nothing tops water quality on our priority list. We are on the record with this priority and we will stop at nothing to ensure our water is safe."

Tips
Some other uses for cotton swabs
Instead of bring a bulky perfume bottle, can spray perfume on the tips of a few cotton swabs and seal them in a ziplock bag. The scent stored by the swabs lasts for several hours, or even for the entire day, depending on your perfume’s concentration.
A stuck zipper Apply some olive oil on the swab’s tips then rub them on your zipper’s teeth. After awhile, your zipper will loosen. Align the teeth properly to finally fix things.
Key board cleaner dip swab in a vingar-water solotion then use it
to clean your keyboard's every crevice.

Being left handed, I have heard the fact about right handers living longer. I have also heard that there are several deaths every year caused from left handers using right handed items. I believe it! We live in a right handed world!
