Science Night at Gilgamesh Brewing

Our monthly joint meeting with Oregonians for Science and Reason. We will be meeting at Gilgamesh Brewing to join in on their Science Night at the Campus, 2065 Madrona Ave SE, Salem, Oregon. The actual time is 7 pm - 9 pm. Get there early to get a seat because it fills up fast.

    Sadly I did not attend. I had already read some of the related material, but it could have been nice to be enlightened about other details. It is interesting to consider that much of what we take for 'life' is really about 'colonies' of creatures in symbiosis. Fossilized 'stromolite' structures could also be considered early experiments in morphology or structure.

    In microbial fuel cells, the best power output seems to happen with a complex mix of bacteria that have different nutritional needs, moderators, and different contributions to a biofilm stability. The 'conductor' that the bacteria attach to could be considered the 'back-bone'. I wonder how much contribution of early developement of anaerobic bacteria had towards early nerve cells?

    I expect that the 'structure' of multicellular animals is deeply based upon early 'biofilms', and attempts to protect colonies.

    Next time, everyone will have to wear a big "H" on their forehead so we can find you! LOL!

    We got there about 6:45, it was packed and we didn't know where to find anyone from the group. Too bad.

    I'm arriving at 6 PM for dinner, however, I just received the announcement from Gilgamesh at 11:40 today! Here's what they have to say (note the new cover charge):

    There is a $5 entry charge starting at 6:30pm, however you will get a $5 coupon redeemable that night. Please bring $5 cash if possible to expedite seating. Melissa Marks. Willamette Univ. Ph.D., Developmental Biology, Stanford University, Invisible Passengers: How the trillions of microorganisms that inhabit our bodies affect health, development and behavior. Microbial cells, the majority of which are bacterial, outnumber human cells in our bodies by 10 to 1. While a small minority of these can cause disease, most are thought to be harmless. Recently, we have begun to understand that these harmless microbes are, in fact,
    essential for our proper development and physiological function. I will discuss some of the newest research about the functions and interactions of these microscopic inhabitants.

      I'll see you at dinnertime :)

    Who is the scientist invited, or considered for the TED talk?

    I am very much interested in the following:

    A) talking with local researchers concerning the statis of Microbial Fuel cell developement and theory issues. I have a FB page concerning MFC Design with 84 contributors at present B) Social engineering ideas and issues surrounding crime suppression or 'light' behavior modification. We locally have a rather serious petty crime problem, I would be interested in adressing this where possible to help people get through our recession.

    If interested or needed, I do have a ViewSonic projector available.
