Fragrant and refreshing (and no relation to caviar!), Beluga Noble Vodka (£27, 70cl, www.waitrosecellar.com) is made from Siberian artesian water and the combination of fresh lychee fruit and delicate elderflower makes this floral cocktail incredibly light, while the addition of orange bitters and lemon peel provides a zingy Mediterranean citrus finish.

Coravin keeps the cork in place, whilst the accompanying gas capsule inserts argon gas into the bottle. The pressure of the argon pushes the wine through the needle, whilst pr... (Swindon Advertiser)Apr 22, 2016
Las Vegas Is Betting It Can Become the Silicon Valley of Water
Water has always been central to Las Vegas. It was an artesian spring, now long drained, that first drew travelers here in the mid-19th century. The natural oasis gave rise to the city’s name, which means “the meadows” in Spanish.
In 1922, Nevada cut a deal with six other states that gave the then sparsely populated state an annual allotment from the Colorado River. The 94-year old Colorado River Compact still governs the city’s water use. At the time, that allotment of 300,000 acre-feet (one acre-foot is the amount of water covering one acre of land one-foot deep, about 325,000 gallons) was more than enough to satisfy a state with fewer than 100,000 people, and a population of fewer than 5,000 in the Las Vegas valley.

Amazingly, it still is enough, with room to spare. Rigorous conservation efforts don’t just outlaw front lawns, but also dictate when residents can water their flowers and wash their cars. And virtually every drop of water used indoors, which accounts for 40 percent of total water consumption, is treated, recycled and returned in near-drinkable quality to its source in Lake Mead 15 miles away. That’s a highly unusual feat for a water agency, but it’s also a crucial water management tool: for every gallon returned, the city gets credit and can take another gallon out, and it’s not counted against its water allotment.
Much of this is the legacy of one person, Patricia Mulroy, who arrived here in 1974 to study German literature at the University of Nevada at Las Vegas, went to work for Clark County in 1978—home to the city of Las Vegas—and by 1989 was running the Las Vegas Valley Water District, the biggest water utility in the Valley.
In a business filled almost exclusively with buttoned-down male civil engineers, Mulroy became a celebrity. Charismatic and often abrasive, she was known alternately as the city’s Water Czar and its Water Witch, after a brazen move to buy up unclaimed groundwater in eastern Nevada and bring it to Las Vegas on a still-unbuilt 300-mile underground pipeline—an emergency reserve if Lake Mead continues its decline...

McQuay, 53, passed away peacefully in the early hours of the morning Saturday, Jan. 2, 2016, at his home.
It was his desire to be cremated and his ashes scattered near the ocean, where he loved sailing and spending time with family and friends.
A celebration of life balloon release will be held at 2 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 9, at The Derrick Floor, corner of Sixth and Main streets. Please join us at that time at the park, or wherever you are in the world, and share with us as we say goodbye to a loved one and friend to many.
Doug was born May 26, 1962, in Artesia to K.H. “Bud” McQuay and Carolyn (Warren) Edwards. He attended schools in Artesia, Albuquerque and Houston, Texas. He studied electronics and communications engineering at New Mexico State University-Carlsbad. The NMSU instructor at the time was so impressed with Doug’s understanding and knowledge of the field, he turned the class over to Doug on several occasions to teach and better explain the technology to students.
