#Hemp  in the 114th Congress  - no time like now
The senators from Oregon and Kentucky once again join to introduce a bill removing federal barriers to the production of hemp. Their prospects for passage this time appear stronger because one of them -- Kentucky Sen. Mitch McConnell -- is now majority leader.

Billionaire #futurist    Martine Rothblatt .  Have you heard of her??  Founder of Sirius XM technology, She is the highest paid woman, founder and CEO of a biotech company that is doing some serious stuff.  She is a total genius. Why hadn't I heard of her??  Maybe because she's not a man - she's #transgender  

S/he is some type of futuristic science genius- and the future will definitely be  crazy.  Our generation should get ready for a #NewFrontier  thanks to #Mooreslaw.  A few highlights:
Printing molecules to cure rare diseases
#artificialintelligence  (See #ColbertReport   #RobotActivism  )
Genetically modified pigs for organ transplants
Digitally backing up your #conciousness   - as a #mindfile  
#3dprinting  molecules, DNA, organs, other #biotech  
#UnitedTherapeutics  is literally the most

I couldn't have said it better myself.  When clients don't have time to provide a shot list before an event, I use this.
Make a plan before your event to ensure you get appropriate event photography. Great event photography pleases clients, flatters donors, and can help tremendously with garnering press.

I got distracted by the interactive "Eclectic New Members of Congress" a few paragraphs down.
Congress must decide whom it will serve, says the Massachusetts senator.
