The ultimate alternative fuel: Water?
The idea of using water as a fuel source isn’t necessarily new, but it certainly should be getting renewed interest as gas prices continue to skyrocket and the worldwide demand for oil continues to increase.
It keeps you hydrated. It keeps you clean. It keeps your grass green. And, by the way, it appears that water just may be an answer for the world’s dwindling supplies of fossil fuels.
The idea of using water as a fuel source isn’t necessarily new, but it certainly should be getting renewed interest as gas prices continue to skyrocket and the worldwide demand for oil continues to increase. A sharp-minded inventor has developed a system that converts water to usable fuel in automobiles and in welding systems; others are implementing water technology to power their otherwise gas-eating SUVs to fuel efficiencies one would typically expect only from a sub-compact.

Annual Salary Survey
In a year when manufacturing continued to lead the economic rebound, it makes sense that plant manager bonuses rebounded. Plant Engineering’s annual Salary Survey shows both wages and bonuses rose in 2012 after a retreat the year before.
Average salary across all job titles for plant floor management rose 3.5% to $95,446, and bonus compensation jumped to $15,162, a 4.2% increase from the 2010 level and double the 2011 total, which showed a sharp drop in bonus.
