Ultrasonic Cavitation: The New Solution for California’s Water Woes
Sound can be used in so many different and incredible ways. It can entertain you, heal you, and see inside you. It can clean water and produce power. It can change the world, for the better. Through the use of mechanical ultrasound, in conjunction with a natural process called cavitation, liquid can be hyper-purified to produce pure H2O. A Rotarian from out of town, Ron Swanson, will introduce a new technology that is simple, affordable, and green. It takes wastewater, seawater, even hydraulic fracturing flow-back water to pure H2O. For additional info in advance, visit the website of Sonic Cavitation.

Helping Immigrants Lead Productive Lives
Tom Waller introduced (was Tom the Program?) our speaker Atta Arghandiwal who is the author of 2 books Lost Decency and Immigrant Success Planning. Atta grew up in Afghanistan and described the country that he grew up in as a very peaceful country were all groups got along very well. This all changed as the Russian, Chinese and Iranian communist parties slowly infiltrated the country. In 1978 there was a communist coup de at and a Soviet Union invasion in 1979. This was the end of peace in Afghanistan. Atta fled the country with the promise to get his family out of Afghanistan. Initially going to Germany, then to the USA, Atta had a very success career in the banking industry going from teller to Sr. VP. He did manage to bring his entire family to the USA. Atta wanted to create a guide to successful immigration and so he compiled his knowledge and real life practices into his book. Atta feels the key to successful immigration is become a contributing and productive member of your country
