Sheila, I set you up with a Profile and Banner on the Website. You can see it here Sheila G. Bennett. Anytime that you post to the Discussion Board your signature (as it appears in the summary) will be automatically placed in your posts. If you are unable to put events on the GRA Discussion Board Calendar, let me know and I will set you up with permissions to do so. Our (Kelly and I's) GRA Discussion Board should give you the lattitude to promote SOS through the GRA on an on going, Do-it-Yourself basis. You are more than welcome to call me (404-545-5456) and I will give you a quick lesson on how to use the Board.

Also, when I was talking about putting up a creative on our web, I was speaking about my website This gives me an idea, maybe I should create a "Community Service" page on our web. Let me know what you think.

Have Fun,
Carl Muth

TED: Hamish Jolly: A shark-deterrent wetsuit (and it's not what you think) - Hamish Jolly (2013)

Hamish Jolly, an ocean swimmer in Australia, wanted a wetsuit that would deter a curious shark from mistaking him for a potential source of nourishment. (Which, statistically, is rare, but certainly a fate worth avoiding.) Working with a team of scientists, he and his friends came up with a fresh approach — not a shark cage, not a suit of chain-mail, but a sleek suit that taps our growing understanding of shark vision.

TED: Michel Laberge: How synchronized hammer strikes could generate nuclear fusion - Michel Laberge (2014)

Our energy future depends on nuclear fusion, says Michel Laberge. The plasma physicist runs a small company with a big idea for a new type of nuclear reactor that could produce clean, cheap energy. His secret recipe? High speeds, scorching temperatures and crushing pressure. In this hopeful talk, he explains how nuclear fusion might be just around the corner.

TED: Sarah Lewis: Embrace the near win - Sarah Lewis (2014)

At her first museum job, art historian Sarah Lewis noticed something important about an artist she was studying: Not every artwork was a total masterpiece. She asks us to consider the role of the almost-failure, the near win, in our own lives. In our pursuit of success and mastery, is it actually our near wins that push us forward?
