|The "Scuba Capsule" from Utmost Tech to be released at the DEMA show.
Utmost Tech announces the release of the world's first all-in-one button-less dive
computer, music player and camera that uses smartphones, such as the iPhone to refine the look and feel of all dive computers available on the market today. The design is based on aluminum housing crafted from a solid billet and tempered glass, limiting the iPhone touch screen functionality underwater, however the built-in accelerometers allows divers to control the device by preforming a poking or flipping gestures, making Scuba Capsule truly button-less dive computer. The device contains the sensors and electronics needed to provide all critical dive information. The iPhone’s processor is thousands times faster than the other dive computers on the market and at dramatically less cost. Scuba Capsule can run faster, more accurate decompression algorithms as well. In other words the iPhone’s computing power makes the other computers look like calculators.
The company will also present its visibility monitoring system called “Bottom Check”. This system delivers information about underwater conditions that are critical for divers and fisherman.

|DAN Launches Fundraising Effort to Prevent Diver Strandings
Divers Alert Network® (DAN®) is continuing in its efforts to prevent divers from being left behind by expanding fundraising efforts for the Diver IDentification System, or DIDS boards. The organization has set a goal of being able to place DIDS boards on every charter boat that would like one.
The DIDS board program, launched in 2002, is a simple but effective tracking system to ensure all divers return to the boat after a dive. Each system is made up of a board and 12 numbered tags; for bigger boats, two boards are issued to allow for the tracking of 24 divers. Prior to entering the water, the dive leader assigns each diver a number from the DIDS board, and the diver puts the corresponding tag to his BCD. At the end of the dive, the tag is returned to the board. Its simplicity is what makes it work: Until all tags are returned to the board, the boat doesn’t leave.

|Thinking twice when you decide to throw something away. That vintage bicycle was never intended for the rubbish pile! We turn down many opportunities to refurbish products headed for a landfill. Many household items can be used again, from old T-shirts and shoe boxes to glass jars and single-sided paper. When you don't need it anymore in your house, it could probably be of use to someone else. Donate unused clothes and furniture to a thrift store. Or, to find people in your area interested in reducing waste by exchanging used goods visit www.freecycle.org or a similar organisation near you.
Keep a "lifestyle journal" for one week in November. Making a personal change starts with knowing yourself. This week, try to keep track of your shopping habits, how far you travel, the kind of transportation you use, and what household products you use to clean your home. Then try to see your everyday activities could be changed. Be imaginative! Every change you make is a small way to make your life simpler and reduce your impact on our ocean.
Recycle to the max. You can spare your old car from a junk yard by sending it to a recycling center instead! Start with paper and glass recyclables and then challenge yourself and your family to fill up the trash bin more slowly each week. Think about how much you can recycle that currently goes to waste. Batteries, cell phones, computers, and every type of plastic—to name a few—can all be brought back into the market instead of ending up underground.
