I. NEED

My wife is an ecclectic collector of recipes. I always joke with her that she has the
largest collection of Internet- supplied recipes in the world. And, despite that, she never
fails to ask me: “So, what should I make for supper tonight ?”.

A symptom of food preparation today, our laziness compels us to rely on quick food.
But, our taste buds and bodies yearn for a fresh, home-cooked meal. It easily explains all
these new services providing home delivered meal ingredients along with “easy-to-use”
preparation instructions. It also explains the newest kitchen appliances that are (almost)
all-in-one meal makers.

The truth is that ...

Products with marketing campaigns exist, striving to accurately meet the desires of purchasers.
Imagine: A quality beverage with recipes of historical nature, updated to construct a recognizable reputation. The innovation dominates in the target market.
Problem: For novices and consumers alike, choices vary in campaign and form. For example, expiration dates indicate freshness. With scientific innovation, products extend their lifespan. Language evolution identifies these markers. As we have come to find, eskimo’s have 20+ words for snow in varying states. All may leave a person wondering; what’s the difference?
Solution: Upon conception, color changing vodka was not just meant to increase quality of life in the 21+ leisure marketplace, but also allow its audience to deconstruct the inherently scientific ...

This invention is a solution to the annual $1 Billion problem of storm water back up in basements during power outages and all the hardship caused to homeowners, especially those with finished basements.

Unlike battery back up pumps which typically only operate for 1-2 hours, this design will run 24-7-365 keeping basements dry during power outages of any duration, without any batteries.

Other key advantages are near 100% efficiency vs. venturi pumps that are 40-50% at best, and no need for a back flow preventer with physical separation of municipal water and sump water.

Mosquitoes breed in the basins beneath planter pots. In many, there is a protruding lip used to water the plant. Planter pots are generally of a two-part design with the water basin at the bottom and the plant with potting soil on the top.

Gardeners bottom water through the lip in tight-fitting basin/pot configurations or in the basin in looser-fitting basin/pot configurations. The gap, wide or tight, and the watering lips permit entry of egg-laying female mosquitoes and exit of young, hungry mosquitoes.

The solution is a strip of fabric with a mesh tight enough to prevent crossing by mosquitoes but loose enough to permit bottom watering. This is akin to an adhesive bandage and can be purpose-built to ...
