PostgreSQL tip of the day: getting SELECTive

Connecting with clients and community

We are in the midst of a busy season with many competing obligations: attendance and presentations at conferences; reports about fieldwork completed in summer and fall; and engaging with our community as we hunker down and bundle up for Alaska’s winter that finally showed up this week. Conferences like the Resource Development Council’s Alaska Resources Conference provide a great opportunity to hear what many of our industry clients have to share about the current year in review and outlook for 2017. ABR takes pride in supporting responsible development efforts by clients including ConocoPhillips, BP Alaska, Caelus Energy, and Hilcorp. We also listened attentively to what Governor Bill Walker and Commissioner Andy Mack had to say about the State’s plans for the Alaska LNG pipeline project.

Rather than drone on and on about Science, he thought it would be cool to have students explore changes in their own community and surrounding landscape.
