    Could you be an ‘aquaholic’?

    Drinking enough water is a health message that’s been broadcast loud and clear. “Some people are such water-drinking devotees that they are aquaholics,” says Manhattan osteopathic physician Christopher Calapai. The result is overhydration, or hyponatremia, which is a term used to describe a low concentration of sodium in the blood that can be dangerous or even life-threatening. Overhydration is the most common electrolyte imbalance in hospitals, occurring in about two percent of all people, Calapai says.

    These street murals only appear when it rains

    All images courtesy of D&AD PantoneMonsoon season is probably one of the most depressing times for people living in places like Seoul, South Korea. For three continuous weeks, a cloud of darkness and rain falls over the city forcing many to remain in their homes to wait it out. Hoping to bring some brightness to an otherwise dreary time of year, D&AD Pantone is sponsoring a series of street murals that are activated by the rain. The project is called, #ProjectMonsoon. “Seoul, South Korea is a vibrant and colourful city. However, the annual monsoon season takes away colour and energy from the streets and people. So with help from Pantone, we painted the streets with water-activated paint, to bring back colour during the monsoon season,” the project states. ALSO SEE: The Banksy Effect: Rivals’ Work Pops Up Near Dismaland As Street Art Takes Over WestonHydrochromic paint will be used to create the murals, which is made from a compound that changes from transparent to opaque when it gets wet. Check out the gallery above to see what it will look like once the rain arrives.
