Activated charcoal, granular activated carbon, granular active carbon – all different terms which just so happen to refer to one specific type of charcoal. Or, more accurately, it is charcoal reheated and oxidized, making the charcoal highly porous. Even though charcoal on its own is known for being a fairly porous substance, when oxidized (or, in some cases, carbonized with other inert gases) the amount of porous spaces increases significantly.
One of the common utilizations of this porous carbon is to filter gas. Not as in fuel, but the gaseous substances that are either naturally produced or expelled from various machinery. Take, for example, air filters. Air is technically a gas, and when the air contains impure elements, a purifier in the form of a filter will help remove these impurities. In a slightly different form, the activated charcoal will perform the same function with water—a use common in fish tanks.
When our previous Board Chairman, the Honorable Jerome Zaleski, and our founder and CEO Emeritus, Dr. Joseph Ruggiero, asked me my interest in taking over the reins of Self Help Movement in January, 2010, I was both humbled and honored. My focus was stepping into this challenging role at a highly respected and valued addiction treatment center and finding ways to continue the mission. Doing so while also looking for ways to expand our goals and our vision to meet the ever increasing needs of our clients and funders. I have found this responsibility to be enormously rewarding and satisfying and can only hope that I can return a small portion of what I receive from the clients and staff at Self Help.
Jeb Bush blew all his campaign cash on TV. Hillary Clinton will drop a lot on Facebook ads. And Donald Trump, well, his ad spending strategy is anyone’s guess.
As the 2016 Presidential race kicks into overdrive, a bonanza of ad dollars will rain down on TV stations and, for the first time, on digital platforms too. According to a widely-cited report from Borrell Associates, political campaigns will spend over $1 billion on digital advertising compared to just a relative trickle in 2012.
But where will this money go? Media analysts told Fortune it will go to digital display ads, and they expect two companies—Facebook and Google—will get the lion’s share of the money. According to Steve Passwaiter of CMAG, others digital darlings like Snapchat and Twitter
are angling for campaign cash as well, but candidates are unlikely to drop any serious cash on them this election cycle.
