"Orna Ross is a major poet and deserves the world's attention." Robin Cutler: Ingram Spark "An experienced and adroit writer who effortlessly demonstrates the far-reaching things language can do." kaleeM rajA, The View From Here Literary Review "Reaches into the corners of your soul and pulls out all that is beautiful." SoWrite Linda Welcome to the imaginative world of Irish poet Orna Ross. If you’re a fan of Maya Angelou, John O’Donoghue, Mary Oliver, or the ancient wisdoms of Rumi or Kabir, you’ll find poems here that are likely to inspire you. Unfailing attuned to the beauty and complexity and interconnectedness of life, this small chapbook is a taster of the sort of contemporary inspirational poetry that is spiritual, not religious. The poet explains, “I don’t believe in gods made in human image. I believe only in what I’ve experienced myself as real: the spirit that created me creating through me. The mystery of the creative process. So my poems are acts of praise and love, yes, but they don’t shy away from life’s challenges. They reflect not just the beauty but also the complexity and interconnectedness of human existence. What the great zen master, Thich Nhat Hanh, calls our “interbeing”. These twelve lush and imaginative poems take many forms, from narrative to haiku, with subjects divided into questions, works, histories, moments, gifts and blessings. Whether explaining why true love never hurts, gazing at a newborn baby, or translating an ancient Irish blessing into contemporary relevance, each poem in this pamphlet offers access to that open, inner space where “the splendor of creation awaits” us. Where heart and mind find themselves restored to spirit.

by Professor Poul Harremoes Environmental engineering has been a discipline dominated by empirical approaches to engineering. Historically speaking, the development of urban drainage structures was very successful on the basis of pure empiricism. Just think of the impressive structures built by the Romans long before the discipline of hydraulics came into being. The fact is that the Romans did not know much about the theories of hydraulics, which were discovered as late as the mid-1800s. However, with the Renaissance came a new era. Astronomy (Galileos) and basic physics (Newton) started the scientific revolution and in the mid-1800s Navier and Stokes developed the application of Newtons laws to hydrodynamics, and later, St. Venant the first basic physics description of the motion of water in open channels. The combination of basic physical understanding of the phenomena involved in the flow of water in pipes and the experience gained by "trial and error", the engineering approach to urban drainage improved the design and performance of the engineering drainage infrastructure. However, due to the mathematical complications of the basic equations, solutions were available only to quite simple cases of practical significance until the introduction of new principles of calculation made possible by computers and their ability to crunch numbers. Now even intricate hydraulic phenomena can be simulated with a reasonable degree of confidence that the simulations are in agreement with performance in practice, if the models are adequately calibrated with sample performance data.

Nonpoint stormwater runoff remains a leading threat to surface water quality in the U.S. Increased impervious surfaces, climate change, and increasing water demands put even more pressure on stormwater managers to improve stormwater management practices with regards to cost effectiveness, removal performance, and ecological sustainability. More effective BMPs can be designed by understanding the nature of pollutant runoff loads with respect to the hydrograph. Many studies have been performed on the first flush (FF) phenomenon (the assumption that the initial portion of a rainfall-runoff event is more polluted than the later portions). However, controversy remains on whether or not the first flush truly exists, which environmental factors influence a first flush, and how best to define the first flush phenomenon. The objective of this study as to evaluate the first flush occurrence in two small urban watersheds (differing in extent of impervious area) using multiple analytical methods and definitions previously published in the literature. The first watershed is 4.8 acres with 67% impervious roadway and the second watershed is 5.6 acres with 87% wooded land cover. Statistical tests were performed to analyze for site-specific correlations between first flush strength and rainfall characteristics (e.g. rainfall depth, peak flow rate, runoff volume, peak rainfall intensity, and antecedent dry period) and determine differences in FF strength between different land uses and pollutants. Furthermore, the FF study was utilized to perform an annual treatable load analysis in order to evaluate the effectiveness of two hypothetical BMPs sized to treat stormwater from the highly impervious watershed based on the 1.3 cm, 1.9 cm, 2.6 cm and 3.2 cm of rainfall water quality volumes. A year-long study captured stormwater samples from over 33 storm events and analyzed for TSS, turbidity, nutrients and heavy metals. Samples were collected using flow-based sampling frequencies that yie.

As the world population increases, the demand increases for quality drinking water. The harvesting of rainwater has the potential to assist in alleviating pressures on current water supplies and storm water drainage systems. Diversion of a portion of the collected water away from storage is a technique used to improve harvested rainwater water quality prior to storage. Six configurations of a downspout first flush diverter were constructed and tested in the laboratory. The configurations of diverters were evaluated for their affinity to allow diverted water in the diverter chamber to interact with the flow of water to storage. Experiments were conducted at flow rates ranging from 0.76 L/min to 113.56 L/min. This range of flow rates adequately represents a wide range of common storm intensity patterns across the United States to which downspout first flush diverters are subjected. The diverter chamber to downspout transition fittings tested on a 10.16 cm diameter diverter chamber, upward and downward oriented sanitary and straight tee, do not have a significant impact on the mean difference in initial and final total dissolved solids concentrations observed at multiple sample ports. No statistical difference was observed when comparing upward and downward oriented sanitary tees used as diverter chambers to downspout transition fittings on 10.16 and 15.24 cm diverter chambers. Utilizing a straight tee as a transition fitting with a floating ball, acting as a barrier between water collected in the diverter chamber of a downspout first flush diverter and the flow passing through the transition fitting, limited diverted water from interacting with the subsequent flow of harvested rainwater. There is not a significant difference between the use of a downspout first flush diverter with diverter chamber diameters of 10.16 and 15.24 cm utilizing upward and downward oriented sanitary tees as downspout to diverter chamber transition fittings. Tests at flow rates less than or equal to 12.11 L/min exhibited limited changes in total dissolved solids concentrations in the downspout first flush diverters with 15.24 cm diameter diverter chambers. Tests at flow rates less than or equal to 1.51 L/min exhibited limited changes in total dissolved solids concentrations in the downspout first flush diverters with 10.16 cm diameter diverter chambers. The diverter chamber drain flow rate and volume impacts the observed differences in initial and final TDS concentrations at all sample ports on the diverter chamber of a downspout first flush diverter regardless of flow rate. The diverter chamber drain flow rate impacts the flow rate of water entering the diverter chamber through the transition fitting.

Australia and India share many commonalities- one is its love for tea. Tea is well blended into both the cultures. While recording the Australian tea-drinking practices, historians have suggested that back in the colonial times, Australians were the most obsessive tea drinkers in the world. Much of Australia's tea is imported from India, which is one of the largest tea producers in the world.Historically, tea has been one of India's principal agricultural exports to Australia.Darjeeling tea, which is grown at the foothills of the Himalayas in the mountain city of Darjeeling, in the Indian state of West Bengal, is universally acknowledged as the 'Champagne of Teas' and that of finest qualities in the world. Likewise, the city itself has mesmerised innumerable since time immemorial. Its world famous Tea, Toy Train(UNESCO's World Heritage site) and spectacular Trekking tracks overlooking the grandeur of the Himalayas makes Darjeeling an incredible experience. Tea flushes are the seasons (time of the year) the tea leaves are plucked. The first flush in Darjeeling, is harvested in spring (mainly March-April) when the freshest tea leaves are first picked. Finally, it is to be highlighted that women form the majority of tea pluckers in Darjeeling, who plays a very significant role in the sustainability of Indian tea industry. The sight of a mother (a tea-picker) holding a tea-leaf while at the same time carrying her child in her pouch is a sight- that is quite common. And that in a way exemplifies the nature/nurture bond. Therefore, in continuation to our social initiative Maya: Indian Women Through Indian Art, through an artwork created by a woman artist from West Bengal, India, portraying the afore-mentioned bond between the 'mother and child', we plan to pay our respect to all those women working in the tea gardens in India while nurturing both their human child as well as the industry. It is in their nature to nurture. Experience The First Flush @ Darjeeling: Appreciating The Nature/Nurture Bond, is an Aei4eiA initiative supported by India Tourism Sydney, Ministry of Tourism, Government of India.

Population increase and industrial development have caused increased pollution concentrated in urban areas. Environmental pollution threatens not only the sustenance of living organisms but also public health and human life. Therefore, it is important to identify pollutants and find ways to control pollution. Surface runoff is an important agent in the pollution of receiving waters. During each rainfall event, the runoff following over the urban impervious surfaces is highly polluted, which discharges its pollution load directly into receiving waters. In recent years, significant global developments have been made in controlling surface runoff pollution. Pollution load estimation requires pollutants and their load distribution to be recognized and evaluated. During the first stage of runoff, or as commonly called the "first flush", the pollution load is rather high, so that if this pollution is properly controlled and managed, the size of the required treatment facilities will be considerably decreased. One appropriate tool in the study of the first flush pollution load is the normalized curve (pollutant load vs. runoff volume).The high surface runoff pollution in the city of Esfahan necessitates the implementation of some control system. For this purpose, ten events were studied during fall and winter 2007 and 2008. The data were gathered through discrete sampling, and thanks to statistical methods, the pollution load distribution vs. runoff volume was investigated. The results indicated that TS, SS, organic compounds and lead concentration exceeded discharge standards. The average amount of TSS and COD were higher than Iran standard. Total solids, suspended solids and organic Compounds were more significant during the first flush and the possibility of occurring first flush for TSS and COD are 71 % and 76% respectively.
