(Scroll down for video) Consumers are now able to build a customized shower, which saves a large amount of water and energy by recycling.

A team of designers in Finland, has built a kit called the Showerloop, which cleans the used water and pumps it back to the shower head.

It works by sending water through five filters. The first screens out large chunks of matter, such as hair. The water is then pumped to a mesh filter.

It then trickles through a layer of sand to eliminate the last few remaining particles.

A carbon layer purifies the water, removing odors and chemicals, and a final burst of ultraviolet light kills bacteria and sterilizes the water.

Because everything happens quickly, the water does not have much chance to cool off, saving energy. After each shower, the filters can be programmed to automatically clean themselves.

The used water can then be sent to the toilet or dishwasher.

The designers report a 90 percent reduction in water consumption, and around 80 percent less energy usage.

(Scroll down for video) A pedophile in the United Kingdom, who was about to meet a young girl for sex, was caught on video fainting and collapsing after being caught by a team of people looking to expose child predators, according to a video uploaded to the Internet.

The video was uploaded to YouTube by Dark Justice, an organization that is based in Newcastle upon Tyne.

The incident unfolded after 24-year-old Scott and 21-year-old Callum posed as 14-year-old Amanda in an online chat room.

They found 45-year-old David Hanson, who started a conversation. Hanson talked to the girl about sex and asked for her number.

The two agreed to meet, but instead of finding Amanda, Hanson found Scott and Callum armed with a camera. Hanson became confused and was at a loss for words.

He was so overwhelmed by the situation that he fainted and fell to his knees. Dark Justice has revealed that Hanson and Amanda have exchanged more than 750 messages.

Following the incident, Dark Justice called the police and handed over the evidence. Hanson pleaded guilty to grooming and has been sentenced to serve eight months in prison.

Since 2014, Dark Justice managed to catch 46 pedophiles. 19 have been convicted of grooming. Of the 19 convictions, 12 have gone to prison and seven were given suspended sentences.

Police detained a 3-year-old boy and questioned him about his sexual activity after learning that he was having sex with children, police in the United Kingdom.

Durham police said that the three-year-old has been interviewed by investigators after being accused of sexually abusing other children.

Police launched the investigation after allegations arose that the child engaged in sexual activities with two other children.

The other two children were five and seven years old at the time of the sexual activities. Police said that they questioned more than 1,000 children who were accused of sexually abusing other children.

Police said that the fact that children are abusing other children is very worrying.

Police blamed the increase of the sexual abuse cases on kids’ distorted ideas taken from the Internet and from being abused by other children.

The head of Child Protective Services said that these figures are only the tip of the iceberg. Police warned that children are now at risk not only from online predators and street gangs, but from other children too.

A school principal of France, was arrested and fired after being accused of sexually abusing many children and recording some of the despicable acts.

While awaiting trial on charges of sexually assaulting dozens of school students, the former elementary principe committed suicide by hanging himself inside the Corbas prison.

46-year-old Romain Farina of Villefontaine, was charged with sexually abusing over 60 children from several schools, where he had worked.

Police said that they found videos in his house that shows how Farina blindfolded the children in a tasting game in which they were supposed to guess what it was.

However, while the children were blindfolded, Farina place his private parts in their mouths.

Sadly, the sexual abuse could have been avoided as Farina had a history of sexual abuse against children.

In June 2008, Farina was found guilty for downloading pedophile pornography, and he was given a suspended sentence of six months, and he was ordered to seek psychiatric help for two years.

However, the court failed to protect children from him as they did not order him to stay away from children.

Many people were outraged that the court did not prevent Farina from having future contact with children. The case has led the Education and Justice Ministries to improve communication in cases of sexual predators.

“He left as presumed innocent. He will never be judged and our children will never be recognized as victims,” an angry father of a victim said after learning about Farina’s death.

Farina left behind a wife and two children.
