On May 20th from 6:30 pm we have another very exciting speaker visiting from Canada.  The theme this month is "Growing a new Future with LED and Biochar".  

Dr. Vladimir Vasilenko is the President & Founder of Purifying Illumination, Inc. which specializes in adapting LED lights for special purposes that enhance growth in plants and have medical applications as well.       (Imagine that a rose cut in a flower shop can continue to grow for more than 22 days - or a head of lettuce in a grocery store continues photosynthesis and at the sma time, all pathogens such as e-coli are eliminated - just because of the light shining above them!)

He is the past President & CEO, of Global Warming Solutions, Inc. and has been a Principal Scientist, CERES Environmental Solution Industries, Inc, in Quebec, Canada where he collaborated with NASA's Mars Project among other honors.

He has been a professor in top universities in Canada and a Research Fellow in the Department of Environmental Biology and Medical Science,  General Physics Institute, Russian Academy of Science, Moscow, Russia where he worked with Infrared and Red Light, Water and Natural organics (Humic and Fulvic acids) which are three “building blocks” used in his commercial inventions. (Some of these could help to eliminate isotopes in Fukushima.)

Dr. Vasilenko worked as a Research Associate of the Nobel Prize winner-  Alexander PROKHOROV (who receved the Nobel for fundamental works on quantum electronics in 1964) while working at the General Physics Institute of Russian Academy of Science in Moscow between 1990 and 1998.  His work has taken him to the  University of Leicester, Department of Botany., where he received Grants of the Royal Society, the UK. and the Centre de Cadarache, Department of Ecology through a Grant from the Ministry of Atomic Energy of France. Since 2005 Vladimir has been working in his own private business developing various products and technologies focussed on organic agriculture and the environment. He has many ideas about how his work could help Fukushima and help feed the world in the future.  Don't miss his talk on May 20th.
