Triple Layer Cotton Mask for NHS Charity Donation

It has been over a month since COVID19 lockdown started. I hope everyone is keeping yourselves safe. This is such a challenging moment for us all. 

Washing hands more frequently and keeping social distance is the very basic standard to avoid spreading this virus. Facemask is not perfect; however, it does give you additional protection. Researchers in University of Cambridge published their comments in April regarding the mask. "Even if masks are only 20% effective at reducing transmission, previous models for an influenza pandemic suggested that substantial numbers of cases may still be prevented."

If better than nothing, why not using it?
Because WHO does not believe in the ability of the public. They don't believe people can understand how to use face masks safely. Why giving up before educating? Why passing wrong information as "non effective" instead?
Here is an interesting article about this argument.…

Being Good Diver is not about Certificate. Let's Go Diving!

All divers start from the basic diving certification called Open Water Scuba Diver (SDI) or Open Water Diver (PADI) or equivalent. This certificate let you go scuba diving all over the world to the maximum depth 18m. Many divers stay with this level, enjoying beautiful coral reef and marine creatures, etc. Colours still stay well above 18m, so most dives will be nice and relaxing. 

What's the next level? Advanced Adventure Diver (SDI) or Advanced Open Water Diver (PADI) or equivalent certificate will let you go diving maximum 30m deep, giving you more chance to go scuba diving. It won't be colourful like shallow diving but when there are ship wrecks at that depth or something else to see, you will not miss the opportunity.
Then you may add Enriched Air Diver and Deep Diver certificate so that you can maximise your opportunity to dive more unto 40m deep.

Now, will you be a good diver if you take all the courses? Answer is "not necessarily". Every Diving course will give …

Paralenz DiveCamera+ (Plus) - Uncover the True Colour of Water World

Scuba diving is great adventure for people who love Sea/Ocean and marine creatures. Underwater Camera is one of the way to have fun in Scuba Diving. When I took a camera for the first time, I encountered Manta shot at a far, 2nd shot coming closer, and 3rd shot right above my head!! Although it was many years ago, I remember that like yesterday. I usually take still photos. If it was a video, I started thinking, I could've shared that adventure with my none diver friends with more excitement than the pictures.

Under the water, there is a little problem. Colours. As descending in water, we start losing colours. At about 5 metre, Red disappears, then Orange around 10 metre. Yellow at 20 metre and Green about 30 metre. There are a few good & easy software that we can adjust the colour on computer. For me, it is not easy...I can do well for still pictures but video is something I am not familiar with..
Paralenz DiveCamera+ is perfect for someone like me!! It has auto colou…
