For all you Forensic fans out there, check out this documentary on Netflix. Well worth watching. Centered in NYC this documentary details the fragile birth of forensic science. 
The grave truth behind modern forensics was discovered in 1920s New York.

My wife has been on a fall mushroom hunting "mission" after a lot of rain we recently had here in Northern Virginia last week. Today she found this really nice and fresh "Chicken of the Woods" (Laetiporus). She came home with almost 5 lbs worth of the more tender ones that we will enjoy eating over the coming days!

Accu Vein, veiin illumination technique
The Accu Vein uses a two-axis optical scanner to sweep an IR laser over a patient’s skin, maximizing the contrast between veins and other tissues. At the same time, the device records the reflected light using photodiodes tuned to the IR laser’s wavelength. The laser beam illuminates one spot at a time, generating data from a full image over the course of one field. Then, after information about the vein is extracted using digital signal processing, the processed image is reprojected onto the skin using a visible laser. Aligned with the data_acquired in the infrared range, the image provides the practitioner with direct and immediate feedback for needle placements.

(Sent from Knoxville News Sentinel)
The Oliver Royale will soon take over the spot formerly occupied by Shono’s in the City at 5 Market Square, which is on the first floor of the same building that houses the Oliver and Tupelo Honey.

Story
Tagline
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.

The best place in the region to get your guitar set up correctly. Do not go to guitar center, you'll be sorry, rather come to the String Workshop in Oak Ridge. Their prices are outstanding and the technical skill is superior. If you want to hear what your guitar should really sound like, then you better visit the string workshop.

Best place in town to get a haircut and beard trim. Jim and his staff do a great job. Plus lots of fun things to do while waiting, like playing pool, latest movies etc.
