Contaminants in the environment may arise from natural or anthropogenic sources; some originate from both. Contaminants may be inorganic, organic, or organometallic; some are radioactive, Potentially toxic “heavy metals” such as Ag (silver), Cd (cadmium), Pb (lead), Sb (antimony) and Tl (thallium) all occur naturally, but human activities such as mining, smelting, and refining, as well as fossil fuel combustion, have considerably increased emissions of these elements to the environment. In fact, on a global scale, emissions of heavy metals to the environment from natural sources are dwarfed by the those from human activities. To read more on Bill's session, please click here .

We get feedback every day of our lives from colleagues, bosses and clients, friends, and family. Some feedback is hard to hear, some makes us feel great, some is useful and some – you wonder what planet it came from!

Receiving feedback is challenging because it is at the intersection of two human desires…we want to learn and grow and we want to be accepted just the way we are. To read more on this interactive session, please click here .
