You know that I spend a lot of time at a local coffee spot. Because I write about it all the time. So, it shouldn’t surprise you that I really enjoy coffee, as well. After all, we do know that US scientists and lab techs (both better known as research rats) are the heaviest coffee drinkers in the US. Plus, I’ve written about the new UCDavis program incorporating coffee technology into the ChemE program.
So, now we’re ready. We already know that we are buying and eating the delectable offerings of Chinese shrimp and catfish. Even if they try to claim they are Malaysian or even American.( What? You haven’t read Monday’s or Tuesday’s post? )
The world’s water supply is in a precarious position. Even here in the US, we have more than a few places that now have endangered supplies. Some water supplies have been drawn down – by excessing farming, by careless residents who’ve never been taught the value of water conservation, even by poorly run industries that have polluted the supplies. (Fracking comes to mind, of course.)
This blog has been gestating for a long time. Mostly because it will end up being a series of blogs- but the connection between them took a bit of doing. So, I’ve been massaging them to make the connection clearer.
When I used to travel three, four, five days a week, I always wanted to eat meat when I was home. Because I felt deprived of it when I wasn’t home. (Except in New York City- and less than ten locations in the rest of the US, it was hard to find kosher meals.)
I am sure, by now, you recognize that my research and business interests cross a variety of disciplines. So, my casual reading in any given day can include the following journals: Microbe, Journal of Bacteriology, Water Reuse, Nephrology News, JASN, JAMA, Harvard Business Review, Strategy+… you get the idea.
