Sam’s Current Activities

  

  • Engineers Without Borders: Started up an EWB-USA COVID-19 Response Innovation Team to work on concepts for methods and devices to reduce the expected virus spread and assist with treatments of COVID-19 patients.  The Team is investigating challenge-submitted concepts and requests from under-resourced regions worldwide.  The first request resulted in a handbook with possible designs and instructions to assemble simple hand washing stations in under-resourced African regions.  The first challenge released April 14th is exploring ways to clean hands other than with hard to provide soap and clean water.  


  • Entrepreneurship Assistance:  Helping to generate a presentation packet for a start-up company.  So far, the individuals that formed the company have developed a valuable technology to optimize complex industrial processes.  My efforts include targeting other applications, projecting usages, and showing  the value added by using the proven technology.  


  • Political: Continue supporting  efforts to flip the Senate, hold the House, reduce Gerrymandering, and fight voter suppression.   Part of the effort is to continuing to work with Swing Left East Bay


  • Condo Emergency Preparedness: Head of committee to help condo residents prepare for emergencies.  Worked on condo's procedures for residents to avoid Coronavirus infections and an emergency texting alert system.
