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.

THIS is another reason why we need Micro-Grids! #Cleantech #Energy #Renewables

So it's #EarthDay again. Read this brilliant and salient post by Dirty Jobs' Mike Rowe about where we should be starting with Sustainability. Repost if you get the point.

Over a Hundred Acres of New Green Space are being created in Miami that will transform the Metrorail Line into an iconic linear park, world-class urban trail and living art destination.
The Underline will transform the land below Miami’s Metrorail into a 10-mile linear park and urban trail.

And Hialeah is being left out a middle hard working class, Wich as a significant passenger ridership and has a station next to Hialeah Park Casino. Hialeah has their own plans. That's why they say Hialeah the city that progresses.

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.

ICYMI: NASA Discovers New Life Form, Could Revolutionize Green Energy and Toxic Waste Cleanup. #Cleantech #STEM
A team of scientists working in California have discovered a new form of life that was previously unknown. Mono Lake in California is growing some pretty interesting bacteria.

This? THIS is why we need Micro-Grids! It's called #ENERGY SECURITY folks. If you think Sony's 'The Interiew' hack was a one-time event you need to wake up. The next time it could come from Russia or anybody else who decides to teach some country a lesson for crossing them politically or even economically. #Cleantech #Sustainability

"This cyber attack was payback, a taste of what Iran has to offer. Everything went down. Computers, airports, air traffic, traffic lights, hospitals, lights, elevators, refrigeration, water and sewage, everything simply stopped. In an instant, Turkey was transported back to the stone ages."

Story
Tagline
Leading Bioneer 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.

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

I personally think that this place is hit or miss depending upon who is working. There have been times when it was really good and then there are times that you just want to walk out because staff and management are being that rude.
