Water \Wa"ter\ (w[add]"t[~e]r), n. [AS. w[ae]ter; akin to OS. watar, OFries. wetir, weter, LG. & D. water, G. wasser, OHG. wazzar, Icel. vatn, Sw. vatten, Dan. vand, Goth. wat[=o], O. Slav. & Russ. voda, Gr. 'y`dwr, Skr. udan water, ud to wet, and perhaps to L. unda wave. [root]137. Cf. Dropsy, Hydra, Otter, Wet, Whisky.]
The fluid which descends from the clouds in rain, and which forms rivers, lakes, seas, etc. ``We will drink water.''
--Shak. ``Powers of fire, air, water, and earth.''
Note: Pure water consists of hydrogen and oxygen, H2O, and is a colorless, odorless, tasteless, transparent liquid, which is very slightly compressible. At its maximum density, 39[deg] Fahr. or 4[deg] C., it is the standard for specific gravities, one cubic centimeter weighing one gram. It freezes at 32[deg] Fahr. or 0[deg] C. and boils at 212[deg] Fahr. or 100[deg] C. (see Ice, Steam). It is the most important natural solvent, and is frequently impregnated with foreign matter which is mostly removed by distillation; hence, rain water is nearly pure. It is an important ingredient in the tissue of animals and plants, the human body containing about two thirds its weight of water.
A body of water, standing or flowing; a lake, river, or other collection of water.
Remembering he had passed over a small water a poor scholar when first coming to the university, he kneeled.
Any liquid secretion, humor, or the like, resembling water; esp., the urine.
(Pharm.) A solution in water of a gaseous or readily volatile substance; as, ammonia water.

The shape of the orifice and the head vary in different localities. In the Western United States, for hydraulic mining, the standard aperture is square and the head from 4 to 9 inches above its center. In Europe, for experimental hydraulics, the orifice is usually round and the head from 1/2 of an inch to 1 inch above its top. Mineral water, waters which are so impregnated with foreign ingredients, such as gaseous, sulphureous, and saline substances, as to give them medicinal properties, or a particular flavor or temperature. Soft water, water not impregnated with lime or mineral salts. To hold water. See under Hold, v. t. To keep one's head above water, to keep afloat; fig., to avoid failure or sinking in the struggles of life. To make water.

Water of crystallization (Chem.), the water combined with many salts in their crystalline form. This water is loosely, but, nevertheless, chemically, combined, for it is held in fixed and definite amount for each substance containing it. Thus, while pure copper sulphate, CuSO4, is a white amorphous substance, blue vitriol, the crystallized form, CuSO4.5H2O, contains five molecules of water of crystallization.
Water on the brain (Med.), hydrocephalus.
Water on the chest (Med.), hydrothorax.

Douglas Harper's Etymology Dictionary

Old English wæter, from Proto-Germanic *watar (cognates: Old Saxon watar, Old Frisian wetir, Dutch water, Old High German wazzar, German Wasser, Old Norse vatn, Gothic wato "water"), from PIE *wod-or, from root *wed- (1) "water, wet" (cognates: Hittite watar, Sanskrit udrah, Greek hydor, Old Church Slavonic and Russian voda, Lithuanian vanduo, Old Prussian wundan, Gaelic uisge "water;" Latin unda "wave").\n

The same probably was true of fire (n.).\n

"Water" is the final single from Martika's self-titled debut, Martika. "Water" was never released as a single in the US, but peaked at number 59 on the UK Singles Chart in March 1990, and number 98 on the Australian ARIA singles chart in April 1990. The version released on the single was a remix of the album version, simply titled 7" remix.
Water (chemical formula: HO) is a transparent fluid which forms the world's streams, lakes, oceans and rain, and is the major constituent of the fluids of organisms. As a chemical compound, a water molecule contains one oxygen and two hydrogen atoms that are connected by covalent bonds. Water is a liquid at standard ambient temperature and pressure, but it often co-exists on Earth with its solid state, ice; and gaseous state, steam ( water vapor). It also exists as snow, fog, dew and cloud.
Water covers 71% of the Earth's surface. It is vital for all known forms of life. On Earth, 96.5% of the planet's crust water is found in seas and oceans, 1.7% in groundwater, 1.7% in glaciers and the ice caps of Antarctica and Greenland, a small fraction in other large water bodies, and 0.001% in the air as vapor, clouds (formed of ice and liquid water suspended in air), and precipitation. Only 2.5% of this water is freshwater, and 98.8% of that water is in ice (excepting ice in clouds) and groundwater. Less than 0.3% of all freshwater is in rivers, lakes, and the atmosphere, and an even smaller amount of the Earth's freshwater (0.003%) is contained within biological bodies and manufactured products. A greater quantity of water is found in the earth's interior.
Water on Earth moves continually through the water cycle of evaporation and transpiration ( evapotranspiration), condensation, precipitation, and runoff, usually reaching the sea. Evaporation and transpiration contribute to the precipitation over land. Water used in the production of a good or service is known as virtual water.
Safe drinking water is essential to humans and other lifeforms even though it provides no calories or organic nutrients. Access to safe drinking water has improved over the last decades in almost every part of the world, but approximately one billion people still lack access to safe water and over 2.5 billion lack access to adequate sanitation. There is a clear correlation between access to safe water and gross domestic product per capita. However, some observers have estimated that by 2025 more than half of the world population will be facing water-based vulnerability. A report, issued in November 2009, suggests that by 2030, in some developing regions of the world, water demand will exceed supply by 50%. Water plays an important role in the world economy, as it functions as a solvent for a wide variety of chemical substances and facilitates industrial cooling and transportation. Approximately 70% of the freshwater used by humans goes to agriculture.
Water , is a 2005 Indo-Canadian film written and directed by Deepa Mehta, with screenplay by Anurag Kashyap. It is set in 1938 and explores the lives of widows at an ashram in Varanasi, India. The film is also the third and final instalment of Mehta's Elements trilogy. It was preceded by Fire (1996) and Earth (1998).

This was the first occasion on which the Bulgarian language was used on the Eurovision stage, previous Bulgarian entries being performed in English. Originally titled "Voda", the song had its title translated to English for the Contest.
The song is an up-tempo number with techno influences, as well as a jaw harp and traditional percussion. Todorova sings folk-inspired lyrics dealing with a young girl meeting a young boy riding a horse.
The performance in the semi-final featured the duo wearing what looked like armour, while they were wearing more mainstream clothes in the final. The performances were also notable for the high-energy percussion performances of both musicians.
As Bulgaria had not finished the previous Contest in the top ten, the song was performed in the semi-final. Here, it was performed first (preceding Israel's Teapacks with " Push The Button"). At the close of voting, it had received 146 points, placing 6th in a field of 28 and qualifying Bulgaria for its first final.
In the final, it was performed twenty-first (following Romania's Todomondo with " Liubi, Liubi, I Love You" and preceding Turkey's Kenan Doğulu with " Shake It Up Şekerim"). At the close of voting, it had received 157 points, placing 5th in a field of 24. It remained Bulgaria's best placing until 2016.

Korrenti "Water" Mayweather (born July 7, 1979 in Miami, Florida) is an American songwriter and record producer. He is currently signed to Grammy award-winning producer Rodney " Darkchild" Jerkins' Darkchild production team. Water, got his start in the music industry when music he demonstrated as an artist landed in the hands of a Sony/Epic talent scout named Victor Cade. Cade is credited with discovering pop star/actress Mandy Moore and gospel artist Tarralyn Ramsey before being promoted to A&R Director. Water and Cade formed a production partnership in Orlando, Florida that would lead to Water’s first commercial success with Pop/R&B girl group 3rd Faze.
3rd Faze was the protégé of HealthSouth Founder and former CEO, Richard M. Scrushy. Under the pseudonym "Magnanimous", Water was the writer and co-producer of the group’s first single “Shy” which helped garner their record deal with the U.S. arm of the German entertainment company Edel Music. “Shy” was chosen as the single over songs produced by Desmond Child ( Livin' la Vida Loca – Ricky Martin) and Hit maker duo Sturken and Rogers ( Christina Aguilera, Rihanna). A music video for the song, directed by MTV and VMA Awards nominee Erik White ( R. Kelly, Nick Cannon, P. Diddy, Chris Brown), was filmed and aired on MTV. Water also wrote and co-produced 3 other songs on 3rd Faze’s self-titled debut album including “Believe” which 3rd Faze performed at America's Junior Miss pageant in 2002.
In 2006 Water moved to Atlanta, Georgia where he and his colleagues started the production company Pure Ice Productions and Ice Water Entertainment Inc. In 2007, while developing an artist for Akon, Water produced the record "Addictive" which was later recorded by MTV's Making The Band choreographer Laurie Ann Gibson. A music video for "Addictive" was filmed and aired on BET's 106 & Park. "Addictive" was the inspiration for Gibson's and clothing company Wildchild Nation's Official Boom Kack Hoodie. The word Addictive is printed on the back. Laurie Ann would later choreograph the music video for the hit song "Just Dance" by Lady Gaga with whom Water would later work. It was at this time that Water connected with The Inc. (formerly Murder Inc.) CEO Irv Gotti and produced and wrote the song "Na Na Na", recorded by R&B artist Lloyd for his album Street Love although it did not make the final cut of the album. In 2008, he co-produced with Jerkins the song "Weather Girl" previously slated to be released on Grammy award-nominated recording artist Mario's upcoming album D.N.A.. The song was written by Lady Gaga.
