Federal safety regulations for pool drains are part of the Virginia Graeme Baker Pool Safety Act, enacted in late 2007, the law requires that most drain systems at public and community pools be in compliance with new anti-entrapment safety standards in time for this summer's swimming season. Depending on the sophistication of the drain system that's in place, steps that may be necessary to meet the new drain safety standards include: installation of a vaccuum release system that shuts down pumps or reverses flow circulation when a drain blockage is detected, use of new tamper-resitant raised drain covers with very fine grating designed to limit suction, and installation of automatic pump shut-offs and drain disablement devices.
A dual-flush toilet is a variation of the flush toilet that uses two buttons or handles to flush different levels of water. It was invented by Australian inventor Bruce Thompson in 1980 while working for Caroma, and although the first generation dual-flush toilet caught on, a redesign in 1993 cut water usage in half when used properly. It has been proven to save up to 67% of water usage in most homes. As it is a development of the traditional Australian flush toilet, the dual-flush toilet differs from siphon-flush toilets in that it relies on gravity to remove waste from the toilet. In addition to its dual flush feature, the lack of siphoning also results in it requiring less water to operate. The main feature of the toilet is that it has two buttons on top for releasing water. Due to the more complex mechanism, it is more expensive than many other types of low-flow toilets.
Arnold Schwarzenneger began his multifaceted career as a youth bodybuilder. His notoriety in this endeavor led to many business opportunities with gym and weightlifting equipment endorsements, and other cash-drawing affiliations. Soon thereafter, the Austria-born Schwarzenneger was to become a high-value fixture of Hollywood and cinema entertainment, playing as lead actor in a wide array of action-adventure roles. His well-found business successes made Schwarzenneger a political candidate, and in 2003, he was elected as California's 38th acting governor. This role he played until 2010. His leadership style was heralded as highly innovative and angled towards public service.
Saltwater is actually a very useful styling tool, especially for fine or thin hair that needs volume. Saltwater sticks to the hair, giving it more texture. For a free-spirited style, scrunch your hair with your hands after getting saltwater on it until it is dry. Your hair will appear thicker with some waves, and will be sure to turn heads. Repeated exposure to saltwater without rinsing or cleansing the hair can lead to dryness over time. Your hair, which is made of 10 percent moisture, will lose strength, elasticity and shine without proper precautions. To restore moisture, apply a deep conditioner or coconut oil to the scalp.

Lollipops are available in a number of colors and flavors, particularly fruit flavors. With numerous companies producing lollipops, the candy now comes in dozens of flavors and many different shapes. They range from small ones which can be bought by the hundred and are often given away for free at banks, barbershops, and other locations, to very large ones made out of canes and twisted into a circle. The idea of an edible candy on a stick is very simple, and it is probable that the lollipop has been invented and reinvented numerous times. The history of the first lollipops in America appears to have been distorted over time. There is some speculation that lollipops were invented during the American Civil War. Others believe some version of the lollipop has been around since the early 1800s.

A smoke detector is a device that detects smoke, typically as an indicator of fire. Commercial, industrial, and mass residential devices issue a signal to a fire alarm system, while household detectors, known as smoke alarms, generally issue a local audible or visual alarm from the detector itself. Smoke detectors are mounted high on a ceiling and typically housed in a round disc-shaped plastic enclosure, but the shape can vary by manufacturer or product line. Most smoke detectors work either by optical detection (photoelectric) or by physical process, while others use both detection methods to increase sensitivity to smoke.
