Study Finds Climate Plays Role in Decline of One of Asia's Most Critical Water Resources

Climate variability — rather than the presence of a major dam — is most likely the primary cause for a water supply decline in East Asia's largest floodplain lake system, according to a Kansas State University researcher.

Missouri S&T Chapter of Engineers Without Borders Completes Guatemalan Clean Water Project

After nearly a decade of work, a small Guatemalan village can now count on clean drinking water thanks to a group of student volunteers from Missouri University of Science and Technology. The Missouri S&T student chapter of Engineers Without Borders (EWB) first traveled to Nahualate, Guatemala, in 2008 as part of a volunteer project to design and build a public water system. On Wednesday, Aug. 2, a delegation from EWB’s S&T chapter is scheduled to return to Central America to mark the project’s official completion.

Identifying Food Insecurity, Even in Pennsylvania's Wealthiest County

Chester County is the wealthiest county among all 67 counties in Pennsylvania. The median household yearly income is more than $85,000. And yet, more than 25,000 county residents received over $3 million in SNAP (food stamp) benefits because they do not have enough money to consistently put food – let alone healthy food – on the table each night. Last year, Chester County Hospital sought to tackle the issue by providing a "food insecurity" questionnaire to patients in the hospital's Ob/Gyn clinic. As a result of the Food Insecurity study, the Chester County Food Bank now pre-packages emergency food kits for the Ob/Gyn Clinic to have instantly available for their patients who acknowledge that they worry when their families will eat next. The boxes are nutritious and geared toward prenatal women. There are discussions currently underway to expand the screening tool hospital-wide.
