“In some ways, that’s the way plants work,” he said. “That’s what we’re going to try to mimic with our photocatalytic hydrogen producers that mimic the reaction of the oxygen-evolving center in plants.”

U.S. Congressman Marsha Blackburn

U.S. Congressman Marsha Blackburn

Washington, D.C – They stood a dozen deep. Young and old,  they lined the streets behind the flag-draped barricades. The rain began to fall almost as if the sky itself mourned the loss of a leader.

Inside the cathedral, the music began as guests arrived and were seated. From around the world they came to pay tribute to the former Prime Minister of Great Britain, Baroness Margaret Thatcher. It was my distinct honor to be among them and offer my respects to a woman who became a transformational world leader.

She grew up as the grocer’s daughter and lost two races before her constituency  chose her to represent them in the House of Commons. Her rise to Prime Minister was not without it’s hardships, but it was done with great grace.

Austin Peay State University’s Jill Franks to discuss new book at May 14th Spring Salon event

 

APSU Center of Excellence for the Creative ArtsClarksville, TN – In the early 20th century, a small group of writers, artists and intellectuals gathered in a fashionable London neighborhood to discuss everything from literature and art to politics and economics.

A brilliant but melancholy young writer named Virginia Woolf often attended these salons, known as the Bloomsbury Group, and it seems fitting that her presence will again be evoked at 5:00pm on May 14th during the Austin Peay State University Center of Excellence for the Creative Arts’ Spring Salon Series event.
