WUaS Idea- and Academic Resources Edit

Ideas Edit

Here's a beginning of virtual water shiatsu pools: “The Making of Virtual Harbin as Ethnographic Field Site in Second Life and Open Simulator” ... http://blip.tv/file/2053061 .

See, also, 'Waters of Life' - http://vimeo.com/338135 , - a documentary about Watsu, water shiatsu, which originated at Harbin. The Watsu subject at World University and School, here - http://worlduniversity.wikia.com/wiki/Watsu_-_water_shiatsu - is open and editable. Will virtual Harbin be a first classroom / learning pools for virtual Watsu teaching and learning, as well as first 'classrooms' for World University and School? How to explore Watsu/Water Dance/Healing Dance ethnographically in virtual worlds, and with avatars, scripts and even robots (saw an interesting presentation at Stanford of robots in water in 2011)? (See the categories in this blog for further ideas about Watsu, virtual Harbin and World University & School - http://scott-macleod.blogspot.com/2010/11/manatee-baby-waters-of-life-documentary.html ).

Pool Heating


So nice of you to video conference on my birthday, so that I could participate in your New Year's Eve ceremonies and at midnight near Geneva from the San Francisco Bay Area!

Concerning pool heating, this seems germane:

The 3rd type of heater is my favorite by far. This heater is the Pool Heat Pump,

The 1st most popular heating system would be the gas pool heaters, or LP (liquid propane).

The 2nd type of heater would be the solar heater.


And some further ideas:

Take Advantage of Floor Return Lines

Utilize a Solar Cover


I've added these ideas to the "Watsu_-_water_shiatsu" wiki school at WUaS ... http://worlduniversity.wikia.com/wiki/Watsu_-_water_shiatsu

Bonne année et bonne santé!

Warm regards, Scott
