MON. Feb. 9 Events

Mobile Monday
Business and Professional Event

MON 2015-02-09
Reports indicate that mobile technologies will be critical in helping to meet the agricultural community's challenge of feeding an estimated 9.2 billion people by 2050.
Recent advances in mobile technology have changed countless industries, and the Agriculture Industry is no exception. Significant impact has been realized in areas including: Agricultural Production, Food Processing and Distribution.

While the rate of innovation in Agriculture in the U.S. has typically been slow and incremental, there has been an increasing amount of development and interest in the space in the last few years. Alternately, in developing countries, mobile phones are typically the only widespread computing and communications technology available. Therefore, there are countless studies that show the tremendous impact that mobile technologies are having in those regions with regard to areas such as Agriculture and Economic Development. As a result, the agricultural communities in developed countries such as North America, Australia and Europe are now capitalizing on the lessons learned from their peers in the African and Asian agriculture communities.

These advances are now enabling tremendous gains in farm productivity as well as enabling small farmers and food producers to be able to sell on the road, taking the concept of farmer's markets and farm stands to the next level.

Join us at Mobile Monday Detroit where we will learn from Michigan-based experts about the diverse ways that mobile/wireless technologies are impacting the Agricultural industry, one of the leading economic drivers for the State of Michigan.

Speakers include:

• Hung Truong, iOS developer, FarmLogs
• Fiona Ruddy, Director, Food Access Programs, Eastern Market Corporation
The meeting is FREE to attend, though reservations are required. Free parking is available at the event location. Refreshments will be served.

Please note: NO-SHOWS cost money due to the fact that refreshments are provided. If your plans change and you will be unable to attend, please make certain to change your registration status accordingly on the Meetup site ASAP.

Mobile Monday Detroit is sponsored by the Mobile Technology Association of Michigan (MTAM), Mobile Monday Michigan, and SilkRoute Global.


SPEAKER BIOS:

Hung Truong, Farmlogs

Hung Truong is an iOS developer at Farmlogs living and working in Ann Arbor, MI. He previously held such gigs as program manager, web developer, trumpeter and mobile developer. In addition to working on the FarmLogs iOS app, he is also interested in web technologies and video games.

Fiona Ruddy, Eastern Market Corporation

Fiona Ruddy is the Director of Food Access Programs at Eastern Market Corporation. She runs two food access programs at the Market and spearheaded the organizing efforts required to create the Detroit Community Market network, a grassroots coalition of fresh food advocates working the bridge the city's food access and demand divide.

Fiona was recognized for her work in 2013 when she was named one of the Crain's Detroit Business '20 in their 20s'.

She attended the University of Michigan with a degree in Political Science and a minor in Peace & Social Justice, as well as a Human Rights Studies certification from the University of Witswatersrand in Johannesburg, South Africa.


SPEAKER TOPICS:

Hung Truong, Farmlogs

Will provide an overview of how companies such as FarmLogs are analyzing data and using mobile technology to solve tough problems in agriculture while inventing the future of farming thru the use of such tools as: resolution satellite imagery and publicly available rainfall and temperature data. He will describe how these and other insights are now being brought directly to farmer's phone and tablets in the field an enabling them to make more informed decisions regarding their crops.

Fiona Ruddy, Eastern Market Corporation

Will discuss how Eastern Market is utilizing mobile technologies to facilitate the operation of their pop-up food access program at 19 locations every week, as well as for shopper reminder programs targeting low-income households to provide them with information about market hours and specials. She will talk about the impact Eastern Market outreach programs have been able to have on senior citizens and other disadvantaged populations in the Detroit community as a result of mobile technologies.

Need for Speed
Detroit Regional Yacht-racing Association

WED 2015-02-11
need for speed Matt is a graduate of University of Michigan's school of Naval Architecture and Marine Engineering and has raced catamarans for over 40 years. He is a five-time North American Champion in two different Hobie Cat classes, and is the current Hobie 17 North American Champion. He is also a US Sailing certified National Race Officer and Judge.
Multihulls were banned from yacht racing in 1876 as too fast and unfair. But times change. The sailing world saw an explosion of beach catamaran converts during the 1970s with the introduction of the Hobie 14 & 16, and now multihulls are fascinating millions as wind powered flying amphibians. Join us as Matt walks us through the exciting world of off the beach catamaran sailing (aka "the Hobie Life") and the emergence of the technical wonders of wing sails and foiling America's Cup and 2016 Olympic catamarans. Learn the fundamentals of how wing sails and foils actually work, and how they propel these phenomenal sailing machines.
The Spinnaker restaurant will be open at 5 pm and there will be evening dinner specials for this event. Reservations are advised (313-884-2500). The dress code will not be in effect. Non-members: credit cards only.

Love is friendship that has caught fire. It is quiet understanding, mutual confidence, sharing and forgiving. It is loyalty through good and bad times. It settles for less than perfection and makes allowances for human weaknesses. "

National Day of Prayer

THU 2015-05-07

Once again we will be gathering to observe the National Day Of Prayer at Shain Park in downtown Birmingham.

The National Day of Prayer is far more than a day to gather and pray. it is truly part of a much larger prayer movement that is changing the conditions of our culture.

ndp The National Day of Prayer tradition predates the founding of the United States of America, evidenced by the Continental Congress' proclamation in 1775 setting aside a day of prayer. In 1952, Congress established an annual day of prayer and, in 1988, that law was amended, designating the National Day of Prayer as the first Thursday in May.

BE THERE! 11:45am
From 12:00 PM to 1:00 PM.. Location: Shain Park. Bates and Merrill, Birmingham, Mi.
Starts at 11:45 AM.. Location: Shain Park. Bates and Merrill, Birmingham, Mi.
