Turning on the tap and watching clean water flow out is something that most of us take for granted. In many parts of the world, however, getting a glass of water isn't so simple. Accordingly, creative people are coming up with solutions to the problem of water scarcity around the globe. In Ghana, a team of engineers has developed a method by which humidity in the air can be converted into water. Scientists at NASA sent a device to the International Space Station that will allow astronauts stationed there to recycle their urine into drinking water. And, as seen in the latest video in GOOD's Look series, a village in South Africa has been transformed by the introduction of the Hippo Roller, an innovation that has changed the way water is gathered and transported.


See more about that in Hippo Rollers, new today from GOOD Video.

In August, the Recording Academy hired their first female CEO, Deborah Dugan. Ten days before the Grammys, Dugan was placed on administrative leave for misconduct allegations after a female employee said Dugan was "abusive" and created a "toxic and intolerable" work environment. However, Dugan says she was actually removed from her position for complaining to human resources about sexual harassment, pay disparities, and conflicts of interest in the award show's nomination process.

Just five days before the Grammys, Dugan filed a complaint with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, and her claims are many. Dugan says she was paid less than former CEO Neil Portnow. In 2018, Portnow received criticism for saying women need to "step up" when only two female acts won Grammys. Portnow decided to not renew his contract shortly after. Dugan says she was also asked to hire Portnow as a consultant for $750,000 a year, which she refused to do.
