    How to Promote Good Hydration during Children's Sporting Events

    Kids are a constant source of energy, running and playing hard in spite of weather, circumstance, and temperature. In heat levels that would slow down most adults, children will happily gear up and play sports in the blazing sunlight. However, this boundless energy comes at a cost no child considers on their own. Playing, especially in the heat, can take up an impressive amount of water and it is all too easy for enthusiastic children to forget about staying hydrated to compensate for the amount of time they spend running around in the hot sunshine. This is especially true for children who play sports, dedicating hours of their afternoons and weekends to practicing and competing on open fields. One of the best things team parents can do together is to promote hydration during sporting gatherings and events.

    3 Ways to Add Luxury to Your Apartment Community

They provide a higher degree of comfort, convenience, and exclusivity than what most people have come to associate with apartments and complexes. However, what defines an apartment as 'luxury' is not exactly set in stone, in fact, it changes from neighborhood to neighborhood. The design of a building can enhance the luxury of an apartment unit and neighborhood. But, many apartment communities have self-upgraded simply by improving the environment, amenities, and quality of the units themselves. If you're looking to become more competitive in the local apartment rental market, the most bang for your budget can be found in clever and affordable luxury features. Here are

    5 Uses For Misting Fans To Keep Your Summer Cool

    We've all seen misting fans before. These simple devices use tiny nozzles, high-pressure water, and basic science to create localized areas of cool air, which can help you beat the heat during even the more unreasonable temperatures.

    Keeping Your Lifeguards Safe with Cooling Mist Fans

    Summer is the perfect time to head out to the pool. Swimming is a great way to cool off from the hot sunshine and the sun-warmed water is never too cold to dive right in. Of course, not everyone at the pool is splashing around in the water. Lifeguards, often teenagers and young college students out of school for the season, are posted on those high wooden stands keeping everyone safe from drowning, but who is keeping them safe from the sun? Even when the stands have awnings, and they don't always, lifeguards are actually at the highest risk of anyone at the pool for dangerous overheating. If you are a pool owner or manager, one of the best things you can do for employees and customers alike is keeping your lifeguards cool.

    Cooling Ideas for Youth Athletic Events

    Sports are fun for young athletes and their parents, but what's not always so much fun is sitting in the hot sun during a race or a soccer or baseball game. For the parent, the heat can greatly diminish the joy of being out there with your kids. For the athlete, high temperatures can affect performance, and adults aren't the only ones who are susceptible to heat cramps, heat exhaustion, and even heat stroke; in fact, kids may be at a greater risk for heat-related illness: "...a child's body surface area makes up a much greater proportion of his overall weight than an adult's, which means children face a much greater risk of dehydration and heat-related illness." Aside from this potentially serious possibility, being overly hot depletes a child's energy and make the game a
