The survey link is:

Below is information about the survey.

Welcome, You are invited to participate in this research study and at the end of the survey have a chance to win an Apple IPad (Generation 3). You are eligible to participate as you have been identified as a chemist working in industry. Participation in this study will require approximately 15 minutes of your time. The purpose of this study is to develop the undergraduate organic curriculum to better prepare our undergraduate students for an entry level industrial positions through a more integrated laboratory approach. The goals of this survey are to 1) identify the most commonly used types of chemical techniques and chemical reactions used in industry today and 2) to identify general aspects of the chemical industry, from initial product identification through manufacturing, that students should be aware of prior to entering the job market. The results of this survey will ensure that future developments in the organic chemistry curriculum satisfy current needs of industry, while at the same time, offer exposure to the core concepts that are fundamental to the chemical industrial processes. If you are willing to participate in this study, please select “I agree and give my consent for this survey” to continue onto the survey. Names provided for entrance into the Apple IPod drawing will only be used to contact the winner. No names will be used for research purposes. Thank you for your time, Project Directors: Dr. Justin D.

Do you feel the pain of acid reflux? Do you feel a fire inside your chest? Are you miserable? Are you ready for the issues to stop? Continue reading to find out how. Keep reading to learn to control acid reflux for good and to end the misery for good.

You may need to balance out hydrochloric acid amounts in your body if you want to reduce acid reflux and its symptoms. You can do this, for instance, by using sea salt rather than table salt. Sea salt has chloride and minerals that are good for the stomach and prevent acid.
