Bitumen: The people, performance and passions behind Alberta’s oil sands
Event on 2017-09-11 14:00:00
Please join us for the launch of Peter McKenzie-Brown’s comprehensive history of Alberta’s oil sands, which covers the last three centuries.. Peter’s book is the story of the world’s second-largest petroleum resource. The book speculates about oil sand encounters with the oils sands by Indigenous peoples, but the known story begins in 1715, with Hudson’s Bay Company reports. The cover photo shows the Bitumount oil sands plant, which bravely tried to make an oil sands mine profitable during the Great Depression, when an international cartel kept oil prices artificially low. The focus of the author’s remarks will be the development of Canada’s largest petroleum company. To whet your appetite, please read petroleum historian Earle Gray’s foreword by clicking on this link. Don’t forget to whet your appetite at the September 11th book launch, too.

July is Cellphone Courtesy Month

SUMMERSVILLE, W. Va. (July 3, 2017) – According to a recent U.S. Cellular survey1, 64 percent of smartphone owners never leave home without their phone which increases the importance of smartphone etiquette. Staying connected and informed has never been easier with the latest technology, like the Apple iPhone 7 or Samsung Galaxy S8. While we can be in touch any time or anywhere, it is also important to take into account our cellphone habits.

In honor of Cellphone Courtesy Month, knowledgeable associates from U.S. Cellular are ready to assist those interested in learning more about cellphone etiquette during a free workshop on Saturday, July 15th from 8:00 a.m. to 10:00 a.m. at the U.S. Cellular store in Summersville, located at 1032 Wal Street. At the interactive workshop for the Summersville community, U.S. Cellular’s engaged associates will provide attendees with information on the importance of being in the moment and safe with their mobile usage.

“Most smartphone users are somewhat conscious about their cellphone usage in public,” stated Nathan Waddell, U.S. Cellular’s director of sales in the Mid-South. “However, in a recent survey conducted by U.S. Cellular, we found that 56 percent of smartphone owners believe that no one gets upset at them for their phone use, while 71 percent of the same people get upset at others. Being aware of our own phone etiquette is important for our mobile experience and the time spent with family and friends.”
