Green chemistry seminar videos

Join the Portland, Oregon section of the American Chemical Society for a couple of wonderful talks on Green Chemistry.

First, Dr. David Stuart, Assistant Professor of Chemistry at Portland State University, offers a brief introduction to Green Chemistry and an example from his lab.

Next, Dr. Tom Wilson, retired Director of Materials Technology at Nike, offers an interesting look at the Green Chemistry of rubber in a story about zinc oxide in Nike’s Environmentally Preferred Rubber.

Take a look at the two videos below!

This activity was supported by an ACS Sustainability Grant awarded to the Portland Section of the American Chemical Society. Videos recorded by Joseph Thiebes.

GMO Labeling Measure 92 in Oregon

Here’s my story on GMO labeling for the Portland State Vanguard. I wanted to use more from all my interviewees, but that’s the way it goes. I wish I could do a whole documentary! I had to keep the focus tight and I wanted to get people to see that it’s a complex and human issue. That wasn’t easy, but I think I gave people some food for thought if not an in-depth view. The video attached to the article is a big step up in my production quality.

Fish With Jerry

Best Fishing in the World

Jerry Hall of Fish With Me shows his latest record-breaking catch.

My latest website project is for a fishing adventure company in Vancouver, Washington, called Fish With Me, which offers tournaments and fishing trips to Baja / East Cape and other prime fishing locations.

This website was fun and gratifying to build. It was a major redesign from an older site, and was more than ready for a fresh look and some modernization, to make it bright and inviting. We reorganized the information, remodeled, added a blog, and created profiles for Buzz, Twitter, Facebook, Picasa, and Youtube.

This site is an example of how a small business or individual can start building a community around their services or any topic of interest with a few simple tools. It is to these small businesses and individuals that I hope to bring the full power of the web with customized, professional graphics and layout.

Do you need to modernize? Want to have the ability to make your own updates without advanced HTML skills? Whether you are in the Portland, Oregon metropolitan area or elsewhere, email me or make an appointment to discuss your needs.
