PANalytical NIR Partners TerraSpec 4 with ALS Limited's CoreViewer
by BWW News Desk - Sep 24, 2013

Spectral mineralogy has long provided great benefits to mine operators for both mining exploration and production projects as thousands of spectra are often collected for each project. In addition to the spectral mineralogy, a plethora of additional data that is collected by geologists for projects can make the correlation, management and presentation of that data overwhelming and, at times, problematic.

BWW Reviews: Zack's Mac Shack's SONGS FOR A NEW WORLD Is Electrifying
by David Clarke - Sep 24, 2013

This past weekend, I had the distinct pleasure of discovering the Greater Houston Area's best kept secret. Ever since The Masquerade Theatre announced they were permanently closing on April 27, 2012, I have been going through Masquerade withdrawals. Other theatre groups, namely Michael J. Ross' Music Box Musicals among others, have sprung up in their absence and offer musical productions of the quality and caliber to fill the void that was left. As good as these productions are, they just aren't the same. Of course, Sunday's closing performance of Jason Robert Brown's SONGS FOR A NEW WORLD at The Masquerade Theatre's Artistic Director Phillip Duggins' Zack's Mac Shack, a new restaurant and cabaret performance space, in Galveston, Texas wasn't the same either, but it was pretty close.
