Are you tired of finding out about the awesome events we have planned only to find the date has already passed?
Are you looking to participate, meet fellow chemists and other chemical professionals, but don’t know when, where or even who to contact?
Well, we’re working on all that and more! This year we’re looking to improve how we communicate to you, our fellow members, about all the cool, fun and interesting things we have planned for this year through the power of social media! But there’s a catch!
What is it you may ask? Well, the simple fact of the matter is that in order to change how we’re communicating, we really need your help! What we’re looking for right now are about 50 brave souls willing to participate in a social experiment of sorts to help us implement the first step we’re making towards a bold new vision of how we communicate with ourselves!
Interested? Well what are you waiting for! Go to www.meetup.com/detroitacs/ and sign up now! That’s…

To help us all celebrate St. Valentines Day, Andrew has provided us with a special edition of "By the Numbers." Have you ever wanted to know how these "date matching" websites choose the matches? Well, Andrew has done a little research on the subject and written a short piece for "By the Numbers" explaining how this is done. It's really note about dating, it's about the math!

Born out of the belief that family, friends and community are essential parts of life, Two James is far more than just an extraordinary product. Two James commemorates the exceptional lives of two great men who through hard work, perseverance and passion for life, were able to leave lasting impressions on the people they loved and the communities in which they lived.
Two James is located in Corktown, Detroit’s oldest neighborhood, and is the first licensed distillery in Detroit since Prohibition. Two James is committed to producing only the highest quality environmentally conscious handmade spirits utilizing locally sourced agricultural products with the aim of revitalizing the community and reinforcing the craft product movement.

The Detroit Section needs speakers for our monthly programs. We have different forums for the presentations so the material does not have to be “state-of the art,” highly technical research. If you have an interesting hobby or want to present some of your work which is science related we would like to hear from you. Many of the most popular talk are on the topic of food or a hobby. Remember, chemistry can be fun!
