Advancements in LED lighting have flipped the lighting world on it's head. New players from the semiconductor and consumer-electronics segments are entering the general market with LED products while the traditional market for replacement lamps dwindles. All of these developments are having a substantial impact on players up and down the value chain - from manufacturers to distributors to service providers.
The growth of the LED market has been fueled by utility incentives and it is growing exponentially. When the Design Lights Consortium's list of qualifying products was introduced several years ago there were only a handful of categories and products listed. The list currently contains 37 categories and 22,000 line items of product! Our guest this week will be Rob Quintal President of Lighting for ESCO's. Rob has nearly 30 years of experience in the lighting industry and will discuss the current landscape and future growth potential for LED lighting.

The realization has slowly been dawning on increasing numbers in the past few years that we’re living in a soup of toxic chemicals. Toxic chemicals are sadly omnipresent in our modern world – in our water, air, food, clothing, carpeting, furniture, the soil, etc. Report after report comes out these days on new health impacts of these toxicants. Is there any change on the horizon? Diane Brandon, your Host and author of Intuition for Beginners, is joined this week by John Warner, Ph. D., Founder and President of the Warner Babcock Institute for Green Chemistry, founder of University of Massachusetts - Boston's first Green Chemistry Ph.D. program, and co-Author of Green Chemistry: Theory and Practice.

He’ll be sharing the ins and outs of Green Chemistry with us, where we are in the process of replacing toxic chemicals, and what he envisions for the future.
Tracey will share her story of life growing up in a “Tremendous” household. Tracey is the president of Tremendous Life Books. Her father, the late Charlie “Tremendous" Jones, started Executive Books for the purpose of changing the world one book at a time. With an exceptional leadership background, Tracey became the company's new president in 2009 in order to carry on her father's legacy. The company is now called Tremendous Life Books. Tracey was born and raised in Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania. As a high school graduate anxious to see the world, she attended New Mexico Military Institute in Roswell, NM, earning an associate’s degree and an appointment to the Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs, Colorado. In 1988, she earned her degree and commission and entered the Air Force as an Aircraft Maintenance Officer. Her first assignment to Shaw Air Force Base, South Carolina took her overseas, where she participated in the first Gulf War. After twelve years as a commissioned officer, Tracey left the Air Force in 2000 and moved to Austin, Texas working for a top manufacturing firm in the semiconductor industry. There, she continued to develop her skills, this time in the civilian workforce as a project manager. While there, she earned an MBA in Global Management. Tracey recently moved back to Pennsylvania. She is excited to be back in her home state, close to her large family, and humbled to carry on Charlie's legacy and love for books and for Christ. You can follow Tracey on Facebook and Twitter.
Steven D Kelley Bio: Steven was born and raised in southern California. He started a career in the precision electro optics field during the advent of the laser. He rose from optics manufacturing technician to manager of quality control, engineering, and production control. During this time, Steven was advancing the state of the art of semi conductors, military systems, and massive optics. After leaving to start his own company, S.K.Industries, became involved with 3 Letter agencies working in support of Iraq vs. Iran. Sometime later, the newly formed company received a contract to build solid-state lasers for what would turn out to be an NSA operation run by Ollie North. It was a result of that experience that Steven became awake and began the process of researching the truth and getting on the path to enlightenment. After a falling out with the Ollie North gang, Steven became involved with the people working with Billy Meier and his contact with Pleadians. The purpose of this was for technical insight into information and materials provided to Billy Meier by Semjase. Steven was exposed at that time to everything about Reptoids, Greys, and even factions within the Pleadians. Steven began researching the properties of fine silver and the use of this material in the building of beamships. The association with Billy Meier and the work with fine silver caused an immediate reaction that put Steven and his family and friends, under heavy scrutiny by various alphabet groups. After growing the semiconductor laser industry in the U.S.A., S.K.Industries would introduce the LAW-17 laser aiming system, which would revolutionize laser aiming for weapons. Steven became sought after by numerous countries for information on this technology. The result was the experience of dealing with the Intelligence agencies from all over the World.
