I'd like to keep this thread simple, if possible...<br><br><br><br>
There are a lot of us on these boards regularly, and we all have goals, ideas, and projects.<br><br><br><br>
We can use our skills and knowledge together, share what we know, share our goals with each other...we can have a network of resources, if we're willing to begin teaching each other what we know.<br><br><br><br>
So, on this thread, I'd like you (if you're willing) to post your line of work, subjects you are educated and informed on, and maybe a brief idea of what sort of help you may be looking for.<br><br><br><br>
But let's not clutter this thread with conversation, we can start seperate ones for that. This can be a simple index of what we know, where we don't need to pick out relevant information from all the posts, you know?<br><br><br><br>
Here's me:<br><br><br><br>
I am a trained Chef, and am focusing on organics, industrial agriculture, and the harm/benefits of genetic modification.<br><br><br><br>
I hope to return to school soon, to get a degree in environmental sciences and land resources.<br><br><br><br>
I know a bit about photography, and all sort of things about the restaurant industry, and would like to inform America about our food supply, as nobody has any idea what they're eating.<br><br><br><br>
I would also like to get involved with children, to teach them about the environment at a young age, and hopefully spawn some new interests in the environmental, agricultural, and culinary fields.<br><br><br><br>
Feel free to email me about whatever you like! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D"><br><br><br><br>

I am excellent at spelling, punctuation, and grammar. If anybody has written anything that they need edited, PM or email me and I'll take a look.

*One other thing: If anyone has anything they would like to present or address in person, the gathering in Atlanta would be an excellent place to do it. We'll be a small, open-minded croud, and anyone with an idea would be welcome to give us a presentation, and we'd be happy to offer opinions.<br><br><br><br>

My past: I was an English and Religion double major, so I know a thing or two in those areas. I used to do a lot of new testament interpretation and the relationship betw. Jesus & Judaism. After college I worked in executive recruiting for a while so I know about the job market, resumes, interviews, etc. And then I worked in advertising as an account exec for a couple years so I know a little about marketing and advertising (mostly in the healthcare and biotech industries.)<br><br><br><br>
My present: I work in a spa in guest services so I know a lot about dealing with people who are big pains in the @$$!!!! LOL. Just kidding. (Sort of) I have above average knowledge when it comes to skincare, haircare, & nailcare because of my job, also familiar with the latest beauty & wellness trends.<br><br><br><br>
My future: I hope to soon become knowledgable in the domestic sphere -- motherhood! All in good time. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

I studied psychology and some neuroscience in college. I used to be pretty knowledgable about the drug war, but all my info is out of date now.<br><br><br><br>
I work in social science type research, so I have some knowledge of basic stats, SPSS and literature searching. I could guide someone to databases and such if you have a project and need articles.<br><br><br><br>
Like MOP, I used to work in a restaurant, as a waitress for about 2 years. So I can tell you a lot about how to get good service, and a lot about the RedLobster menu and food, but that won't help anyone here.<br><br><br><br>
I currently study bioethics. I am not an expert, but I can point people in the general direction for questions on DNR's, patient rights, (and much more) Or I can ask a professor. If you are trying to decide if someone is dead, I had to write a pretty involved definition of the definition of death. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"><br><br><br><br>
My friends think I have a knack for thinking of diplomatic ways of saying things that could be confrontational. So if you need to ask your angry bosss a touchy question, I may be able to help.<br><br><br><br>
And perhaps my most useful skill, I can recommend good restaurants in Cleveland.

I'm still a youngin, but i'd say, since my major is env. studies/wildnerness leadership and used to be Forestry, i have a pretty good knowledge about land resource/wildland management/the nat'l forest and park system, as well as the BLM stuff, exotic/invasive species..the list goes on.<br><br><br><br>
i also, depsite my age, think i'm well cultured and well traveled and blah blah blah. writing/editing is also a forte of mine (even though i know i do not demonstrate that on the internet, heh). i also have learned to be a very good judge of character and have good people skills. i have a feel for people and who they really are...also, luckily i don't suffer from any mental disorders, but i have some significant knowledge in them.<br><br><br><br>
at this point i'm thinking about doing the grad school thing with a fisheries sciences (which translates to marine conservation, actually) degree. perhaps something psy. related though. no rush..i'll see what happens.<br><br><br><br>
i suppose i can add i know some useful vet stuff. i worked as a vet assistant for about 8 months and was able to learn a lot.<br><br><br><br>
and leadership skills, heh...only applied when i feel absoluetly necessary <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"> but i was chosen for a few 'elite' programs and the like which i didnt appreciate too much at the time but i realize they have been helpful to me.

Ok... well I think I'm fairyly young compared to most people here, but here goes.<br><br><br><br>
Writing is my biggest talent. I'm studying journalism, plus taking a human rights minor. I'm big on creative writing ie poetry as well as the basic journalism format, plus I'm really good at writing essays.<br><br><br><br>
I have a huge knowledge of the Classical World and am fascinated by anything related to that era.<br><br><br><br>
I'm currently Head of Media for a non-profit organisation called Quest 2025, who are trying to make a difference with the way things are in the world. So I'm very big on human rights and know a fair bit about different issues including the drug war.<br><br>
They have also asked me to lead up some of the economic issues, so when I learn a bit more about that.... then I'll know some more <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D"><br><br><br><br>
Oh and geography is a big thing of mine. Taken a few classes in Uni, so as long as it's not totally in-depth (unless about Japan or Australia, I know lots about those) I should be able to help <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

I too, studied the environment in university.<br><br>
What I learned most about was plants of Manitoba, and I also know a lot about ethnobotany, which is "the dynamic inter-relationship between people of a particular culture and their botanical environment."<br><br><br><br>
I also have a great memory, as evident by the definition that I still know, 3 years after learning it.<br><br><br><br>
I can also play the flute and piano, and soon I will be good at the accordion.<br><br><br><br>
My last skill is that I am a good curler. (Curling is a very popular sport in Canada). Anyone who enjoys curling also, please pm me.

I'm a Jack of all trades, having done a great deal of computer and software training, writing, speaking, and so forth, but my focus in recent years has been filmmaking (writing, producing, directing and also acting). I have been putting these skills to use not only to advance my career as a narrative filmmaker, but also in editing projects for Last Chance for Animals and The Humane Society of the United States, which has been fulfilling.<br><br><br><br>
I hope to continue combining my passions going forward.

I work with videoconferencing, so I have a background in ISDN and IP technology, as well as the various types of hardware used for video connectivity.<br><br><br><br>
I'm also a certified picture framer, I know a little bit about web design, and I'm a passable writer. I'm an experienced beta reader and I often assist friends with writing assignments and fictional endeavors.<br><br><br><br>
My educational goals include improving my web design techniques and going back to school for a degree in education. I want to teach either English or social studies. ^_^<br><br><br><br>
And, on a silly note, I have an emoticon for every occasion. XD

Nah seriously I can be very persuasive, and I can also make myself appear a lot smarter, by using a lot of useless jargon in certain situations!<br><br><br><br><span>Danny</span>

I know a fair bit about cats and dogs and their various health problems, having lived with so many of them.<br><br><br><br>
I deal well with difficult people.<br><br><br><br>
Professionally: nonprofit, corporate and transactional law.

Well, I don't have any particular skills, but if I know anything it's about dealing with kids. I do work with kids a LOT. No, I am not a mom. But I spend most of my time working as a camp counselor, interning in a first grade class, babysitting, teaching workshops to girls about diversity, health, etc., and hanging out with my little siblings, etc.<br><br><br><br>
Yeah I am young though. Very much so. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">
