L&O:
More Pesticide Case Studies Around the World - This presentation focuses on pesticide use and incidents that have occurred throughout the world.  Next time you feel we are over regulated, consider what other Countries deal with on a daily basis and you'll have a better understanding on environmental resource protections.  These case studies are sure to impact your decisions when you travel abroad or consider other cultural options on pesticide safety measures when it comes to pesticide control.

National Pesticide Information Center 1995 to Modern Day - This is a review of the National Pesticide Information Center and it's services.  Throughout its history, our culture has changed and societal changes impact this information center.  We'll walk through memory lane (1995 to modern day) and see how technology has changed and stayed the same when we seek answers to our pesticide questions.  What are the questions we are asking?  What are we poisoning?  Are out pets safe?  And what is the most abused product in oour households today?  The answers may surprise you!
