  • The Art and Science of Face Masking

    The Art and Science of Face Masking

    While it’s possible to contract the coronavirus through contact and items we touch containing droplets of the virus, research is showing that the virus is most often spread through the air or airborne transmissions (the virus is suspended in the air as an aerosol in fine particles). Whether through coughing, sneezing, singing, or loud conversations the ability for an infected person to spread the virus through the air is central to the CDC's, doctors, and many of our politicians encouraging or mandating the use of masks to aid in controlling the spread of Covid-19.  Informative and entertainment, Dr. Mike Hansen does an excellent job of explaining so many aspects of this pandemic on his YouTube channel, I encourage you to check him out and even subscribe for expert advise on how exactly the virus spreads. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xJ4Epf8i1uk&feature=emb_rel_end

  • Reopening of Schools

    Reopening of Schools

    I've had the honor of being a teacher several times since college at the high school and university levels. And while I'll never forget my 10th-grade biology students from Newfound Regional High School in New Hampshire, I don't think any students impacted me more than a group of preschoolers I taught (or perhaps better stated as taught me) one Summer between semesters. There was something about the interaction. It was hands-on, physical, interactive and full of wonderment. I think about that experience often. Through this closeness, I felt connected. I had been entrusted to have a positive impact on someone's child. I'm sure this feeling is shared by millions of teachers every day throughout the world.

  • Calculating Air Purification

    Calculating Air Purification

    A good friend asked me the other day, "where do you get so many ideas from to write your newsletter and blogs as busy as you are?" and I replied, "my customers." While this is true, I left out, "what else am I supposed to do under stay at home directives from our governor." Until this year, my professional life could have been measured in frequent flyer miles, traveling all over this amazing planet. Inhaling the breath and germs, and undoubtedly catching colds and cases of flu, from countless travelers.

    UVC & The Common House Plant

    As a young boy, I spent most of my time in the outdoors, catching, identifying and releasing just about any organism I could find, so it should come as no surprise that my undergrad degree was in Biology.

    A Smarter World Ahead

    On April 18th, 1906 at 5:12 AM, just 2 miles off the coast of San Francisco an earthquake at a magnitude of 7.9 shook the San Andreas Fault for 25 seconds, resulting in the worst natural disaster in California history then and now. Fires raged for days and in the end, over 3000 people had perished and 80% of the city lay wasted.

    Air Purifying Science

    This week's newsletter is part information and part collaboration. I ask that you not view the letter as a sales pitch but instead a request for advice from our tech readers, and those interested in the science behind devices that promise cleaner air where we work, live and frequent.

    FRAUD IN THE MIDST OF A PANDEMIC

    If we've had the chance to speak, you know me to be a believer in the science behind the technology in the products we design and resell. You'd also know I'm the first person to doubt the authenticity of some reports, charts, and diagrams from suppliers and manufacturers. We do our best always to be honest, transparent, responsive to customer concerns, and worthy of their trust.

    MADE IN AMERICA

    I’m not a believer in excuses, something I learned from my Mom.  She just turned 80 and is safely locked down, like most of us, in my small hometown in New England. There aren’t a lot of good things that can be said about this pandemic, but there are many things to be thankful for.  Like being able to, and looking forward to, speaking to her every day.

    MASKS FOR MEALS

    Since our face masks arrived, I’ve been frequenting businesses and organizations in our community delivering masks for employees and their families, unexpected, unannounced.  I’m always greeted with an identical smile and heartfelt thank you.

    UV-C SCIENCE PROJECT

    I came across an article that discussed how to determine if you’ve purchased a UV-C (germicidal wavelength) sterilizing device or did you just buy an ultraviolet light that’s not effective at all.

    COEXISTING WITH COVID 19

    Friday. It's the day of the week I plan my trip to the local market, between 4:30 and 5:00, the north entrance, because I know the carts are sanitized.
