This quote has become more and more relevant in my life. I think about my lack of time when I read this. There simply does not seem to be enough time between the earths daily rotations to do all the things I'd like.. I still try, and still find the time to work, get out, see friends and avoid getting burned out. We're all busy with our lives but seeing our peers once in a while, is better than not having peers. Definitely would enjoy seeing some of you more. I believe that stays the same with all aspects of a balanced lifestyle (work & leisure.) It's not always easy, but it's worth it.

Standard air filters don't cut the mustard to efficiently capture microbes. But they can be supercharged to capture mold, bacteria and viruses with a single spray application of Filter Charge.
The all new Filter Charge spray is simple and easy to use. Before installing a new air filter, spray a couple of times to allow effective capture of many potentially harmful bacteria, viruses and mold present in the air. This is a perfect cost effective solution to allow clean air in the house.

Hello Google+
Question: It there a way I can give access for a circle to only people with a google music subscription? You guys have some great music collections and I would like to post and hangout with people who have the same collection interests. We could share songs in G+ and discuss on hangouts.

Found this snapping turtle on my bike ride today. It was working its way against a strong current up a stream.

Microbial Contamination Expert
Introduction

Microbial issues that affect the built environment can be extremely complex and difficult to solve.   Success requires a dedicated and experienced professional who has complete access to state-of-the-art technologies.  Dr. Sobek is the Director and President of  Assured Bio Labs, which is an AIHA accredited Environmental Microbiology laboratory. He is a PhD microbiologist with 20 years of laboratory and field experience. His vision to develop industry standards, using DNA based diagnostics, is driven by the need to replace antiquated technologies that only confuse and waste his clients’ time and money.   In order to achieve those aims, he has become an avid entrepreneur and inventor.  He invented the novel microbial detection technology called Molecular Entrapment, which he branded into the M-TRAP® air sampler and is the only CDC/NIOSH verified technology to capture airborne mold, bacteria and virus.  

Dr. Sobek specializes in microbial detection and decontamination.  His services extend to the legal, manufacturing, residential/commercial property, cosmetic, pharmaceutical, clean room, gnotobiotic, and agriculture industries.  He and his team at Assured Bio have tackled everything from viral outbreaks in medical facilities, mold in multimillion dollar homes, to radioactive bacteria that corrode aluminum lined reactors.  They have diagnosed mold and bacteria issues in hundreds of homes and commercial properties.  Dr. Sobek’s ability to identify low level microbial contamination truly sets him apart from his competitors. He has examined years of historical mold data and the results indicate a major flaw with current detection technologies that completely miss or grossly underestimate the true concentrations of microbes in the built environment. Hence, his insight and mastery of microbe DNA analysis and microbial ecology is vital for a successful project outcome.  That and his relentless pursuit of scientific solutions are the distinguishing factors sought by the companies that engage his services.

I am a sleuth at heart, and am always eager for a good challenge; fortunately, the microbes rarely disappoint.”                      --E.A.Sobek, PhD.
