New Orleans Biotech District Has Great Potential
Written by 

New Orleans medical and biotech community has a great opportunity to thrive in the post-Katrina environment.  On January 14, the New Orleans BioTech District held a conference to discuss issues related to the growth of that sector and other related industries. 

 

In an interview with Bayoubuzz.com, LSU’s economist James Richardson, Ph.D. said that by conservative numbers, the district could create 17.2 thousand jobs in 20 years. 

James P. McNamara, Greater New Orleans Biosciences Economic Development District, in a speech at the conference luncheon discussed the importance of funding the district to ensure its potential.

catRarely, have I seen few issues that have generated as much raw heat, tension, and passion than the Confederate monuments controversy. 

Just as existed during the real civil war, where brothers battled brothers, social media is the battleground, particularly Facebook, pitting friend against friend.

On one side of the tense divide, there are those who are protecting the New Orleans civil war era monuments.  Burnt in effigy, forever, is the symbol of Mayor Mitch Landrieu for up-ending what the monument protectors consider to be the loving civil society of New Orleans.

Lately, events have turned somewhat militaristic.

Some protectors of the Confederate monuments have been staying vigilant, in person and online, even surveilling during the wee hours of the morning, waiting for the next Mayor Landrieu attack.
