Bitumen: The people, performance and passions behind Alberta’s oil sands

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. Peter’s other books include Footprints: The Evolution of Land Conservation and Reclamation in Alberta (2016, with Robert Bott and Graham Chandler); Barbecues, Booms and Blogs: Fifty Years of Public Relations in Calgary (2008; co-editor and contributor); In Balance: An Account of Alberta’s CA Profession (2000, with Stacy Phillips); The Richness of Discovery: Amoco’s First Fifty Years in Canada (1998); and The Great Oil Age: The Petroleum Industry in Canada (1993, with Gordon Jaremko and David Finch.)

Callitics Launches New Version of its app, Power to People.

Peoria, IL (PRWEB) May 26, 2015

The team at Callitics, LLC has released an entirely new version of its political lobbying app that lets anyone become as powerful as a K Street lobbyist. Just download the app and create a call that is targeted at any level of government on any issue.

“We used to give our app a viral power that it did not have before,” says founder Tom Howard. The deep linking allows the user’s call for change to be shared all over the Internet and anyone on a mobile device that clicks the link is taken directly to the call in Callitics’ app. A user does not have to remember any phone numbers, just tell their elected leader.

When asked how the Peoria based start up plans on expanding its user base, the founder smiles and provides a fairly abstract answer: “We’re building the business model that Peter Thiel used to launch Paypal.”

The company hopes to launch the new business model by July 4, 2015. Callitics focuses on getting people more involved in politics by giving them a voice and decentralizing the money in politics.

“The customer discovery phase is going well. Once we add the business model to it, we think Power to People’s user growth will become geometric,” says Howard. Callitics is leveraging what they have learned about internet marketing from their other project, News Meme.

News Meme allows anyone to take a URL and turn it into a meme. The result are memes with a twist. Unlike the memes flooding the internet, News Memes are a portal to internet content.

“The highest and best use of News Meme is taking content that is interesting but does not share well, like scholarly articles, and making an eye-catching meme so that people can learn more about it,” says Howard. News Meme is optimized for mobile traffic and is overseeing steady user growth.

With Power to People and News Meme continuing to expand, Callitics, LLC starts its second year in operation with more going for it than ever before. Callitics, LLC is a startup from Peoria, Illinois. It focuses on creating small, fun and useful software that puts its users first. Follow up with them by e-mailing Howard(at)callitics(dot)org
