I have been saying this would happen within 2 years. (2015-2016) I didn't expect it to happen this soon.

BTW: WHY is this happening now? Because Big Tobacco, Big Ag, and the Pharmaceutical Industries all want in. #Agchat #Biochat
The smoking of marijuana in the U.S. is now legal for recreational use in five states, and for medicinal purposes in more than 20.

Video report: Making Money in the "Green" Economy. #Cleantech‬ is developing innovations to solve the world's biggest challenges, from food scarcity and energy poverty, ways to divert waste from landfills, and so much more.
Companies that focus on green products and business models are growing in Canada. And they're making profits too.

Think this can't happen to Florida? Are you willing to bet your child's life on it? #Agchat #FoodieChats
California's farmers literally feed the country. If we want to talk about their water problems, we also need to talk about our food problems.

Story

Leading Clean tech Entrepreneur Working at the Nexus of Energy, Food, and Water for Sustainable Smart Cities
Introduction
Sean O'Hanlon has been called a "Bioneer" and described as "One of the most influential voices in BioEnergy". He first became interested in agricultural, environmental, health, economic, and energy issues while traveling internationally during the late 1990's and began investigating the potential benefits of alternative fuels. It didn't take long for him to zero in on Algae as the best source.

Over the years Mr. O'Hanlon has earned the respect of colleagues in every facet of Energy, Agriculture, Algae, Biotech, and Cleantech from San Francisco to São Paulo & Masdar to Montreal; briefed U.S. Congressmen, Senators, Governors, as well as Agriculture and Energy Officials in foreign countries; co-created and developed the Certified Biofuels Educator (CBE) program, served on the Center for Hemispheric Policy's Energy Security Task Force; chaired round table discussions and entire international conferences. He receives between 15-25 invitations per week to speak at a variety of business, educational, and governmental venues about Algae technologies and applications.

He regularly gives interviews to the media and has been quoted in the American City Business Journals, Des Moines Register, Forbes, Houston Chronicle, Miami Herald, New York Times, NPR News, San Francisco Chronicle, Science Magazine, and even the scientific journal Nature.

He is currently consulting on integrating advanced Algae technologies into Agriculture (CAFO's and Dairy Farms), Anaerobic Digestion systems, Aquaculture, Breweries, Distilleries, Ethanol plants & Sugar mills, Hydroponic systems, Landfills, Paper & Pulp mills, and Wastewater Treatment plants. The resulting Algae biomass can be fractionalized into Oils, Proteins, and Carbohydrates which contain high value bioactive compounds useful for functional foods and animal feeds.

  • DARPA
    Biological Systems Engineer, 2012 - 2014
    Recruited by TED Fellow Dr. Rachel Armstrong, The mission is to realize interstellar flight before the year 2100. We will accomplish this objective by researching and developing the science and the technologies that will make interstellar flight a reality, igniting the public’s interest, and engaging with all those prepared to invest in interstellar exploration. I am responsible for designing and integrating an Aquaculture (Algae-based) system that will be used for capturing and recycling the CO2 & Wastewater from the crew. That Algae will be used for producing oxygen, clean water, fertilizer for edible plants, and ultimately food aboard the ship.
  • Cleantech Open
    Director, 2013 - 2014
    The mission of Cleantech Open Miami is to find, fund, and foster entrepreneurs from all across Florida, the Caribbean, and Latin America with big ideas that address today’s most urgent Energy, Economic, and Environmental challenges. (Including Agriculture, Water, and Waste) Since its founding in 2006, CTO has established itself as the leading force for accelerating clean technology entrepreneurs. Of the nearly 600 companies we have worked with, 80% remain viable today and they have gone on to raise external capital exceeding $660 million. By developing a network of more than 1,500 professional volunteers who are willing to lend time and expertise to entrepreneurs who may otherwise not be able to get their ideas off the ground, we are facilitating the growth of the Cleantech Industry and all the positive impact that will come from such technologies. We recruit and match leaders to mentor cleantech startups with growth opportunities in: • Renewable Energies • Energy Storage & Distribution • Energy Efficiency • Renewable Chemicals & Biobased Materials • Information Technologies • Green Building • Transportation • Agriculture, Water & Waste With seven active regions across the US these connections are truly global. A startup based in Miami can receive mentoring from an expert in Houston, license its technology to a strategic partner in California, and receive venture capital from New York. The Cleantech Open provides a platform for that kind of interaction and visibility. My team and I have taken Cleantech Open from having zero presence in Florida to statewide recognition in less than 6 months.

Good coffees in a great location and good service. I just wish the layout was cozier with more comfy seats. :/

Ok. The ONLY reason I'm not giving this place 5 Stars is because they need more seating inside. (Oh, and they would really benefit from installing a Big Ass Fan. Just saying.)

I think the pizzas are mediocre and overpriced for what you get. The service is just so-so.

I'm trying to be fair so here goes. It really depends upon who you deal with as to how you will be treated. The Sales Manager is a great guy but the prices on their used bikes are ridiculous... $4,000 for a 2013 Yamaha Zuma with @ 3,500 miles??? Come in guys! I can buy a brand new one for just over $3,000. My advice? Shop elsewhere or buy from a private seller online.

This place has the best sushi in all of south Florida. Reservations are highly recommended as there is almost always a wait to be seated for dinner.

I have been eating lunch and dinner here for years and I have never had a bad meal. The service is good too. This place is also nice for Sunday brunch.
