Aniversario del huracán María: Compilación de Relatos

Caribbean Youth Environment Network (CYEN-PR)'s picture

El 20 de septiembre del 2017 es una fecha en la que los puertorriqueños no podremos olvidar. Todos, de alguna manera u otra nos vimos afectados por el huracán María. Algunos pudieron pasar las largas horas del paso del huracán con familiares, mientras otros se encontraron solos encerrados en los baños de sus casas ya que ese era el lugar más seguro de su hogar. Unos tuvieron que desalojar durante el evento atmosférico debido a que no se imaginaban cuánto daño les iba a causar en sus hogares. Algunos tuvieron la dicha de no perder nada de su propiedad, pero lastimosamente perdieron sus trabajos. Otros tuvieron que enfrentarse al duro momento de enterrar a sus seres queridos, y en algunos casos sin poder llevar a cabo un funeral. Diciendo adiós de manera muy pronta.

Dr. Sharon A. Cantrell became the first Puerto Rican woman to be appointed to the presidency of the Mycologycal Society of America, an organization that brings together scientists dedicated to the study of fungi and which was founded in 1932. Dr. Cantrell is a professor at the School of Natural Sciences and Technology of the Universidad del Turabo in Gurabo, Puerto Rico. She obtained her baccalaureate (Biology) and masters (Biology / Mycology) at the University of Puerto Rico, Mayagüez Campus. In 1996 she completed his PhD in Phytopathology - Mycology at the University of Georgia in Athens. Currently her research is directed to fungal ecology, climate change, extreme environments, taxonomy and systematics.

Conquering Johns Hopkins (Summer 2018)

Johns Hopkins University has had a lot of firsts… It was the first research university established in the US… It snapped the first picture of Earth from outer space… And it established the first academy of music. But this year, it was home to my second summer research experience, thanks to the Johns Hopkins Institute of NanoBiotechnology.

Science and public policy for a more resilient Puerto Rico

Puerto Rico is at a crossroads—the reconstruction decisions made following the fiscal crisis and the hurricanes of 2017 will determine the kind of society we will have in the future. Do we want to be prepared for the hurricanes to come? Or are we willing to allow the mistakes of the past to be repeated?

Moving forward requires that Puerto Rican policy makers incorporate the best available data from different fields, from economics, public administration, and social sciences, to engineering, technology, and the natural and physical sciences. Therefore, it is essential that public and private sectors collaborate with multidisciplinary teams to formulate public policies based on evidence.

NOx gases, formaldehyde, benzene, V.O.C's and other harmful pollutants and contaminants

Nanotology Power solutions are the breaking news of not only a natural way to address air purification technology, but also hard to kill microorganism. Our specialized surface coatings without the need for using filters can capture more than 85% of the gases that fly around in the air and are detrimental to peoples health and property.

The formulations we use can also dissipate motor engine exhausts systems NOx gases, formaldehyde, benzene, VOCs and other noxious air waste.

How does it work?

Scientists and teachers come together to empower students to put "Science in Service of Puerto Rico"

SAN JUAN, PR - For the past two days, more than 50 teachers and 15 scientists received training and designed educational lessons so that students from the Puerto Rican archipelago can put "Science in Service of Puerto Rico" (Ciencia al Servicio de Puerto Rico). Teachers and researchers participated in the inaugural workshop of the project of the same name, which was created and is led by the non-profit organization Ciencia Puerto Rico (CienciaPR).

Hydrophilic Natural Formulations

The photo shows a glass building structure. The glass has been  covered with one of our hydrophilic natural formulations. Once covered it acquires hydrophilic properties. This means it will attract the water on to the glass surface which will absorb it while at the same time it creates a cleaning effect. Also upon the sun hitting the hydrophilic covered glass with its rays, a photocatalysis reaction occurs triggering a chemical response. This permits breakage of organic matter at the molecular level while processing it into harmless carbon dioxide and water. Excellent for cold or heat reduction, hence electrical power consumption. Formulations available for wood, ceramics, stainless steel, stone and many other materials.

 

Organic Health and Agriculture

Organic Farming is the way to go. Proven has been that no other way other than the natural way is able to take care of our health's land, environment and ours with great care. Different from organic natural fertilizers solvent base solutions are proven to eventually damage our surrounding.

Thought solvent base solutions are cheap and can boost agriculture growth, the end results damage the air, water, and land, above all our health. POWER GROUP CORP AGRICULTURE offer is the antithesis of solvent base agriculture and assists the rightful owner natures in its great task in feeding the world. No other way is at our hands that can secure both our health and our environments.
