Welcome to WATER - a multidisciplinary journal that brings together water-oriented research from diverse disciplines.â€¨ Throughout nature, water plays pivotal roles. Yet there has been no single venue in which the wisdom gained in studying water within one discipline is readily available to those studying water within other disciplines. The goal of this open-access journal is to remedy that problem. After all, water is water, regardless of discipline. Our journal serves as a communication hub among diverse disciplines dealing with water. We hope for collective learning.

THE HEALING POWER OF MINERALâ€¨
SPRINGS IN BULGARIA Bulgaria is a global wellness destination because of its diverse composition and properties of mineral water.
Water is the universal solution to harmonious health and longevity ~ various mineral water springs are key to balancing and nurturing living systems. The healing power of mineral springs has been recognized since the time of the Thracians, who were renowned as healers. "The Holy Springs of Thrace" were famous throughout the Roman Empire. Few countries in Europe can rival Bulgaria's spa, thalassoo, medspa and wellness tourism, with its abundance and diversity of thermal mineral waters and curative mud deposits.
REGIONAL CHOICES IDEAS OF WERE TO GO…. Mineral springs located in the southern part of the country are influenced by the Mediterranean climate. Cool mineral springs are found throughout the country Narechen (Asenovgrad region), Shipkovo (Troyan region), Ovcha Kupel (Sofia), Smochan, (Lovech region), Voneshta Voda (Gabrovo region), Merichleri (Simeonovgrad region), and elsewhere. The spring with the highest temperature is Sapareva Banya (103oS), also the only geyser in Bulgaria and Continental Europe. The most famous thermal springs in the Balkan Mountains are in the regions of Varshets, Barziya, Lakatnik, Opletnya; on the Sofia plain (up to 49 sources) - Bankya, Gorna Banya, Knyazhevo, Ovcha Kupel, Sofia, Pancharevo; in the Srednogorie - Strelcha (40°С), Hisarya (49.5°С), Banya (51.1°С), Pavel Banya (54.6°С), Starozagorski Bani (45.8°С); along the valley of Struma River – Blagoevgrad, Simitli, Sandanski (76°С), Levunovo and Marikostinovo; along the valley of Mesta River – Banya (56оС), Dobrinishte (43°С) and the village of Eleshnitsa (56°С); in the Rhodope Mountains – Devin, Velingrad, Banite. In Bulgaria, the scientists examine not only the chemistry of the water, but also its physical and biological properties. This exact science allow for you to visit the springs most suited for your rejuvenate.

LITTLE HISTORY Sofia preserves many valuable monuments of its long and storied past.
Golf courses are within an hour’s drive of the city. In the city of Ihtiman and the village of Ravno Polye, there is offered excellent facilities to play and practice.
Visitors exploring the city’s streets can see remnants of The Eastern Gate from the days when Sofia was Serdika and Sredets, dating from the 2nd-4th centuries CE. These remains are exhibited in the underpass connecting the Presidential Palace and The Ministerial Council, surrounded by shops selling traditional Bulgarian souvenirs and rosewater.
In the immediate vicinity, other historical remains are preserved, such as the municipal baths, the marketplace, and The Holy Sunday Church. Adjacent to this church is the Theological Seminary, which houses The National Historical and Archeological Museum.
Serdika was the favorite city of Constantine the Great (reign 306-337), who said “Serdika is my Rome.” Roughly 175, massive fortified walls, with four watchtowers were built to protect the city , and a second outer fortified wall was added during the 5th-6th centuries. The city’s flourished for a second time under Justinian the Great (reign 527- 565).
Sofia is also noteworthy as hardly another city in all of Europe is home to more Christian, Islamic, and Jewish monuments so close together.
During the time of The Second Bulgarian Empire (1185-1393), Sredets took on the appearance of a large Medieval city – its narrow, crowded streets witnessed the construction of more and more small churches and monasteries, which later became Sofia’s Holy Mountain. The city gained its present name at the end of the 14th century, in honor of the city’s major symbol, The Saint Sofia Basilica.

WATER AND THE INNER-WELL OF BEING: ‘WELLNESS’ AND ‘WEALTH’ AS PROPERTIES OF WATER Marc M Cohen School of Health & Biomedical Sciences, RMIT University, Bundoora, Australia, Email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Water is essential for life and unites all living systems within a common milleau. The etymology of the word ‘well’ demonstrates the link between health, vitality and water. That a ‘well’ refers to a water source, and being ‘well’ refers to fully expressing our true vital nature, suggests that ‘wellness’ is both a property of life and of water. As a universal solvent, which forms the essence of life and the connecting principle for all living things, water is at the core, or ‘deep inner-well’ of our being. Thus, water forms the divine spirit at the heart of consciousness and is ‘the currency of wellness’. The divinity of water is suggested by the process of ‘divining’ to search for a water source, just as the ‘tao’, or the inconceivable ‘way of nature’ is likened to w a t e r, a n d t h e g r e e t i n g ‘ n a m a s t e ’ acknowledges the divine within us all.

Similarly, humans view their surrounding as separate and use the oceans and air as entropy sinks, believing that ‘the solution to pollution is dilution’. Yet, as we approach the earth’s limits to absorb our waste, we are forced to realize the interconnectivity of all life and face the truth of our toxic legacy. Humanity must therefore begin to embrace all of nature in our endeavors and begin to deal with the environmental toxicity and climate change that has plunged us into a global mass-extinction event, and an epidemic of lifestyle-related chronic disease.

Life is still be produced in the ocean today as Craig Venter demonstrated. This was the hypothesis of René Quinton. Life appeared in the ocean and the cell try to maintain its origin. René Quinton was very famous when I died. He was compared to Darwin and to Pasteur. He and his followers, as Doctor Jean Jarricot, saved a generation of babies in France called Baby’s Quinton. There is an Original Protocol of René Quinton to produce the seawater. The point where seawater is harvested is very important. The phase between
phytoplankton and zooplankton in the ocean food chain is the most important point of the protocol. Here, the elements inside the seawater are transformed from inorganic form to organic form for the rest of the food chain. This seawater can not be heated, so to make it sterilized a 0,22 micra-filtration is used. Linus Pauling said that all diseases can be explained by a mineral imbalance and the seawater contains 78 elements totally bioavailable and balanced. The effect of these elements on our immune system was explained by Doctor José Miguel Sempere in three articles. Isotonic seawater modules the immune system. Doctor Juan Colado and Doctor Roberto Lacava show us that Isotonic Seawater can be used for elderly people for a better physical and mental status.

AQUAOMICS AND WATERONS: â€¨ WATER INFORMATIONAL UNITS AT THE MEMBRANE INTERPHASE. E.

Anibal DiSalvo, PhD The hypothesis that the thermodynamic state of water at the lipid-water interface is the dynamic constituent in membranes that may act as anthenna for biological signals to control activities of membrane-bound enzymes and to trigger cell recovery and survival in stress processes is proposed and discussed in the context of experimental and theoretical evidences. It is based on the fact that the modulation of interfacial water activity may give specificity to the interaction of aminoacid motifs found in peptides and proteins acting as signals or effectors on cell membranes and the activation or inactivation of interfacial enzymes. The structural organization of water at different levels of the membrane is characterized in small subnanometric hydrophobic cavities that may serve as a functional target sites of recognition for biologically relevant molecules. The deciphering of the specificity is done in terms of the hydrogen bonding network water molecules may form in the cavity.
The H bonding distribution affects directly the surface free energy (globally and punctually) via changes in the local surface tension of the membrane interface. Hydration levels considered in the generation of regions with an excess of surface free energy would be responsable for triggering the response to biological effectors. It is possible that for each macroscopic state determined by temperature and osmotic state (lateral pressure) a distribution of discrete sites can be formed each one with an appropriate activity to trigger molecular processes conferring a global response. Specific water arrangements in terms of water molecules with none, one, two, three or four H bondings in different combination with membranes groups each of them with a proper value of free energy given by a limited number of configurations that determine the water activity are identified. The great variety of lipids and the protein complexes would give the matrix for informational water units approaching lipidomics to aquaomics. That is, water arrangements that may be predetermined by cell informational machinery.

Small signaling peptides (SSP, typically 5-75 aa in size) are a fast growing class of regulatory molecules involved in practically all aspects of plant vital activity including morphogenesis, in particular regulation of cell
division and differentiation in meristems, cell expansion, main root and lateral root development, immune and other responses to environmental stimuli.
For Arabidopsis thaliana, more than 1000 SSP sequences are already postulated; however, only few of them have been functionally characterized and linked to a putative receptor. One of the beststudied pair of a SSP and its putative receptor is a peptide CLV3 (RTVPSGPDPLHH, pCLV3) and a receptor like kinase, CLV1. Genes coding them are expressed in shoot apical meristem of Arabidopsis, and this ligand/receptor pair modulates stem cell maintenance or cellular differentiation in shoot meristems. However, it has been shown that addition of pCLV3 to culture medium of Arabidopsis influences root growth though no putative receptors of it have been identified in roots. We studied the effects of the synthetic peptide pCLV3 in a wide range of concentrations including ultra-low ones on the dynamics of the main root and lateral roots growth of Arabidopsis and also its effects on spontaneous processes with reactive oxygen species (ROS) participation that constantly go on in aqueous bicarbonate solutions. pCLV3 inhibits -6 growth of the main root in concentrations 10 -9 -14 -16 10 M and 10 - 10 M, while in -11 -12 concentrations 10 -10 M it stimulates main root growth. Hence in the range of low and ultra-low concentrations a bi-phasic (hormetic) effect of pCLV3 on the main root growth (indication of cellular proliferation) was observed. pCLV3 affected also appearance of lateral roots (indication of differentiation). It is notable that most intense stimulation of the appearance of lateral roots was produced by concentrations of pCLV3 exerting inhibitory effects on the main root growth. The balance between cellular proliferation and differentiation is a key aspect of development in multicellular organisms. In Arabidopsis roots it is modulated by the balance of reactive oxygen species (ROS) between the zones of cell proliferation and the zone of cell elongation where 1 differentiation begins [ ]. It was notable that addition of pCLV3 to aqueous solutions of bicarbonates, where ROS are
constantly produced changes the parameters of free radical reactions evaluated by measuring the intensity of stimulated photon emission from these solutions. Effects of pCLV3 changed in a wide range of its concentrations also non-monotonously being most strong in those concentrations that most effectively inhibit main root growth and stimulated -7 -8 -14 lateral roots growth (10 - 10 M and 10 -16 2 10 M). We previously suggested [ ] that a stable non-equilibrium (electronically excited) state in bicarbonate solutions is provided by spontaneous charge separation in aqueous systems discovered by G. H. Pollack. Such a state may be highly sensitive to low intensity physical and chemical factors acting upon the structural-dynamical processes in aqueous systems via the resonance mechanism. It is notable that all peptides and polypeptides are characterized by peculiar distribution of hydrophilic and hydrophobic aa side groups along the peptide chain providing specific hydration atmosphere for each particular peptide. On the other hand the common future of all peptides is the presence of regular peptide bonds. According to Gilbert Ling’s “Polarized Multilayer 3 Theory” [ ] dipolar backbone NH and CO groups are the primary seats of water sorption. In oligopeptides to which RTV belongs it is highly probable that sufficient quantity of peptide bonds are open for interaction with water and hence are capable to form multiple layers of highly polarized water molecules that may dynamically modulate multiple layers of highly polarized water may provide for their versatile role in regulation of various biological functions not only in plants but in all living systems. 1 2

ITERATIVE PROCEDURES TO HIGHLIGHT THE FORMATION OF MOLECULAR AGGREGATES OF WATER MOLECULES IN PURE PERTURBED WATER
The Iteratively Cellulosated Water
Prof. Vittorio Elia, Dept. of Chemical Sciences, University “Federico II” of Naples We studied the effect of natural hydrophilic polymers, cellulose derivatives, on water, when using an iterative procedure of hydration and drying. The procedure consists of immerging a cellulose-derived material in water for several minutes, then extracting it and drying it at room conditions. These two steps are iterated several tens of times. The used materials were Whatman and Millipore cellulose filters, Paper filters and Cotton wool, i.e. all cellulose derivatives.
Several years ago, we have studied an iterative filtering procedure using the same Millipore filters. In that case, the experimental results obtained with the cellulose filters were similar to the ones obtained with sintered glass filters, IFW (Iteratively Filtered Water). The hydrophilic nature of the filter depends on the chemical nature of the regenerated cellulose. The iterative procedure of drying and rehydrating produces large variations of the electrical specific conductivity χ and small variations of pH.
We denote this new perturbed water:

surface, for which the luminescence spectra can still be detected, are essentially different for dry and swollen Nafion. In fact, in the case of dry Nafion the size of this area steeply decays with growing the distance from the Nafion surface, and amounts to 10 – 20 microns; this is associated with divergence of the pump radiation, which is taken into account by special form of the apparatus function of our experimental setup. At the same time, in the case of water-swollen Nafion the size of area, where the luminescence can be observed, extends deep into the bulk of liquid, reaching several hundred of microns. Since the luminescence signal is generated solely by the Nafion particles, we made a conclusion that such particles are dispersed in the bulk of liquid close to the Nafion surface. We found the solution to the inverse scattering problem, which allowed us to obtain the spatial distribution of the volume number density for the Nafion particles in the bulk of liquid. It turned out that the size of area, where the volume density of Nafion particles exhibits a gradient-like profile, coincides
the Exclusion Zone depends on the type of cation; for more detail see our recent study . Furthermore, it was found that Na+ cations are effectively repelled from the Nafion surface, while K+ cations tend to be adsorbed at this surface. Based on the experimental data, it was suggested that the spatial structure of the Exclusion Zone is similar to that of biological cell. 1 N.F. Bunkin, V.S. Gorelik, V.A.Kozlov, A.V.

Water uptake by cellulose as an indicator of variability in water properties ? Ernst ZĂźrcher, Bern University of Applied Sciences, Switzerland From the 3 main components of wood (cellulose, hemicelluloses and lignin), cellulose is characterized by a strong hydrophilicity in opposition to lignin, which is hydrophobic by nature. The evolutionary significance of this fact is first briefly discussed, including the new paradigm of the â€œ4th phase of waterâ€?. Based on our research on the variations of wood properties in function of the felling date of the trees (regarding especially lunar phases), we developed the hypothesis that the binding forces between wood and water represent the fluctuating factor. Experiments on water uptake by nearly pure cellulose in an automatized system under controlled conditions show surprising, quite strong (and cyclic?) variations. Our proposition is that they are due to changes in water properties rather than to an uneven cellulose configuration.

IC Medicals Emission Project “Emission” project lies at the intersection of such sciences as physics, biology and medicine. It’s devoted to developing the technology of remote transfer of super weak electromagnetic emissions (SWEME, “emission”) of biologically active substances (BAS) via of communication lines with fu rther SWEME tra n sfe r to a t e m p o r a r y c a r r i e r. A f t e r t h a t procedure the temporary carrier can be used as a source of biologically active SWEME for specific effect on water and aqueous systems.

young people-connect Encouraging YOUNG PEOPLE to come, hear, and rub shoulders with the leaders in the field by offering to partially defray travel and lodging costs for selected students and postdocs who plan to present a poster at the conference.
4. Send both documents to firstname.lastname@example.org. The deadline for submission is August 1. EARLY APPLICATIONS ARE ENCOURAGED, as the meeting may reach capacity.
To apply for financial support:
Applicants will be informed of decisions on or before August 15. In no case can full costs be covered. We have limited funds, so we must limit the selected students to ten.
1. Supply a title and short abstract (one paragraph) of the poster you intend to present. To be considered for support, poster presentations are required. 2. Have your research advisor write a brief note describing your capabilities and the need for financial support. 3. If you are more than 35 years old, please justify the need. This program is designed primarily for people 35 and younger.
Conferees from previous meetings have given rave reviews, stimulated by many novel observations and lively discussions in an intimate setting. With best wishes, Gerald Pollack Conference Chair
