Useful Links

I was recently contacted by a reader for an article correction. I began to think, what a great online community we have! When helpful readers and SME's feel comfortable to communicate with me to make our understanding of various principles more correct in every aspect of description, I feel blessed with a readership of your caliber. I truly appreciate this and hope more of you will contact me with comments and or ideas, you can never tell where they may lead.

Then I realized how great would it be to offer a list of the current information I collect for research directly to the web readers in bulk? This way, they can look at specific areas of interest to them. I started collecting these due to the answering of various “Quora” questions having to do with hazardous materials and other interests of mine. So, Included is my current list, along with explanative following. I hope these prove as interesting and fact formative to you as they have been beneficial to me,
