As anyone who visits this site often can tell, algae-based news is a very important topic that is constantly discussed. In fact, one could say that is has almost taken over the site.
Since that wasn’t the original goal of this website, I have launched another website, AlgaeNews.com, which deals strictly with algae news.
The site includes commentary on the algae industry like that found here as well as article consisting strictly of the opinions and views of experts in the algae field.
Algae News also includes RSS feeds updated daily with best variety of news articles discussing algae. These feeds are organized for your convenience into three different categories: Company News, Industry News, and Research News.
Hopefully with this new site up and running, I will be able to focus on a wider variety of energy related topics here on Blatant Reality.
So if you come here to keep current on algae biofuel related topics, be sure to visit and bookmark AlgaeNews.com!
Oh and be sure to follow Algae News on Twitter (@Algae_News) for the most up to date algae biofuel news!
This summer, I have been given the opportunity to intern at the Donald Danforth Plant Science Center conducting Social Media and Public Relations work for them for Summer 2010. I will be able to continue this blog throughout my internship but I figured it would be good to get some things out in the open.
First off, this is my personal blog, which is not affiliated in any way with the Danforth Center. Therefore, anything I publish here is done by my own free will and reflects my own personal opinions. Any comments or statements I may make on this site concerning the Danforth Center or any of the research they conduct does not represent their official views.
Now, with that out of the way, I hope to continue to provide you with pertinent information about the growing (and rapidly advancing) algae biofuel field.
Happy reading and I hope everyone has a very relaxing summer.
Welcome back everyone. Well, I guess it is not you who have left, but I who have been missing for the past several months.
But now I am back, and ready to start blogging again. For those of you wondering about my time in D.C., I will say that what I learned will be invaluable to me in my future endeavor.
Now, some updates on how things will play out in the next couple days/week. I will begin posting a lot of press releases I received over the past couple months to hopefully bring myself and other up to date on the happenings of some of the companies I follow.
Additionally, the website itself should be receiving a makeover of sorts in the coming weeks if I ever get around to upgrading a few things.
Other than those few things, I am looking forward to following energy and political issues as well as my favorite topic: algae biofuels.
As always, if you want to get a more personal view of my life and other updates, please follow me on Twitter http://www.twitter.com/BlatantReality
It sure feels good to be back.
For the next several months, I will be interning in Washington, D.C. During this time, I am afraid I will not be able to blog due to time constraints and requests from the office in which I will be working. I am sorry for any inconvenience this may cause but please be sure to come back in December for more articles.
Thank you for your time and I look forward to rejoining the conversation.
I hope everyone has a very happy 4th of July. Be safe and remember all those who have sacrificed to keep our country safe for 233 years!
Happy Father’s Day! Thanks to all the fathers out there for all you do.
I’ll be gone on a foat trip from today until Wednesday. Be sure to follow my twitter (http://www.twitter.com/BlatantReality) for updates and such. Well, there should be updates if my phone gets signal from the campsite…
Yes, it has been a while since I have blogged and I’m sorry. I have been very busy doing other things (aka not failing in at the University of South Carolina and doing some other projects (SC Statehouse Blog and Need by Need). You really should check out those two sites. Pretty awesome if I do say so myself.
Anyways, I will hopefully start picking up some bloggin here, even if it is just quick little articles. Lots of things have happened in algae recently. Check out the articles I have written for Celsias (here, here, and here) for some updates on what is happening in the algae biofuel arena.
Also, this coming week is Spring Break and I will be in Washington, D.C. on a mission trip for half of it and at the beach for the other half. I will have my handy Blackjack II so I just might throw some blog posts up but don’t be disappointed if I don’t.
Hope your March is starting off well and I shall see you in a week!
I wrote this last year and still think it was pretty clever. If you don’t think so well tough. You’re lucky I posted anything today.
Here are a few things I thought up over the past week that I feel every guy should take into account on Valentine’s Day.
- If you can’t afford a dozen roses, go with one. Any other number requires a detailed explanation that you just don’t have.
- When you give your girlfriend a rose, you might not want to hint that it is a symbol of your love, because a rose may be beautiful but it will also be dead within a week.
- If you give your girlfriend a bear for Valentines day, don’t try to joke around by saying, “See, I got it because our relationship is unBEARable. Get it?” She gets it, but you probably won’t be getting what you’ll be looking for later that night.
- If you are going to read her the poem “Shall I Compare Thee to a Summer’s Day?” on Valentine’s Day, be sure that it is the Shakespeare version and not the Moss version.
- Don’t eat some of her chocolates before you give them to her. I know she may be your princess but the excuse of “checking for poison” just doesn’t fly in the 21st century.
- If your girlfriend says “Aww, you shouldn’t have…” when she opens your gift, don’t reassure her by saying “Don’t worry, it cost less than your Christmas present.”
Other than those few things, remember to be a gentleman and that this day is all about her.
Hope you enjoyed and hope you are having a great Valentine’s Day.
I hope everyone had a great and safe New Year’s Eve last night and I wish my readers a very successful New Year!
